Representative af State Historical
Society Visits Tekamah.
TEKAMAH, Neb., June (Special.)
A. Blackman, from the Nebraska State
Historical society of Lincoln, has been here
the last few days. Yesterday he discovered
a grave on the resorviolr hill, west of the
depot, covered with eighteen inches of burnt
clay, which ccitalned the skeletons of five
Indians, the grave being about six feet
Mr. Blackman says that one of theae
skeletons must have been that of an Indian
chief, as the grave was on the highest
point of the hill, and also from the fact
that It must have taken several days, per
haps months, with a fire going continually,
tu burn the ground to such a depth. He
found two or thrie lower Jaw bones with
the teeth intact, and as the teeth were worn
off a great deal it was thought that these
Indians had lived to a grand old age .
Several dispute the theory regarding one
of them being a chief. They claim If it
had been he would have been, buried alone
Instead of with -these otherfour. Upwards
of twenty-five skeletons have been dug up

16. It required something besides a knock
on the door to enter the big coliseum and
see ihe republican party In convention as
sembled today. In the first place one had
to run the gauntlet of hawkers, and vend
ers of all sorts of cheap articles, who way
laid the badge-decorated delegates. Then
a vast army of policemen, all looking as

had to be passed.
By that time one of the six spacious
entrances had been reached, but there the
real trouble began unless you were prop
erly equipped. If you had a long green
ticket, which looked like a bank note and
bore the steel engraved picture of Abraham
Lincoln and said that It was good only for
the first day, the stony-faced doorkeeper
might consider your application for admis
sion, and eventually you were permitted to
pasa through the portals and enter the vast
auditorium. As the crowd grew In slse the
venders worked harder, the policemen were
not so critical and the doorkeepers passed
the ticket besrers with more speed.
Those who attended a Chicago convention
for the first time were not particularly im
pressed with the outside surroundings or
the exterior aspect of the Coliseum.
Wabash avenue In the vicinity of the
building Is not Its most Inviting part. About
all the nearby buildings looked as If they
had survived the fire of 171. At 11 o'clock
the martial music of approaching marching
clubs could be heard.- and during the next
hour there was continuous- movtiyt proces
sions toward the halt- Traffic on the ave
nue stopped completely and the three blocks
en each side of the Coliseum became choke j
with delegates, s pec ts tors, newspaper men,
photog-raphers, convention spectators and
outside sightseers.
The United States senators, members of
congress, governors and national commit
teemen had to find the side doors. They
were not permitted to enter through ad
miring crowds, but hurrying round on the
south side they found a door which led to
a dark and not very Inviting corridor under
the stage.
An hour before the convention began work
there were 10,000 people gathered about the
Coliseum and every moment the crowd In
creased until It was difficult to even reach
the entrances.

Reports Indicate Rapid
In the 'New Orgaals
Reports given at the second meeting of
the Omaha local of the State Railway Em
ployes' Protective association in Labor
temple last evening showed that the mem
bership In the new organisation has In
creased from 1.000 to nearly 12,000 In the last
two- weeks.
President George E. Norman presided
and In a short speech epitomised the alms
of the association.
"We have wasted our strength too long,"
he said. '"Now we must stand up for our
employers against those who are persecut
ing them. The AWrich bill reduced rates
IS per cent, but meat Is going up. rent Is
going up. and It Is essy to see what will
be the end unless we act, use our votes
and elect men who will stand up for us.".
T. H. Crosby of the executive committee
told of the progress of. work In organising
locals throughout the sta.te. He said they
had "met "better success than they even
dreamed of." Nearly 12,000 of the 22,000
railway employes In the state are already
members of the association.
P. H. Morrison of Fremont explained the
system of collecting and accounting for the
money received from subscriptions.
W. H. E. McDanlels took a rap at state
ments In an evening paper, purporting to
come from two members of the Central
Labor union, who are alleged to have said
they would not permit the affiliation of
the Railway Employes' Protective associa
tion with the Central Labor union.- He de
clared the new association does not want
to be connected with any union. It wants
to be Independent snd bring Its power to
bear In politics. "Think of It," he said.
"Nine hundred votes In the Union Pacific
headquarters alone. In the shops there are
1,600. We must hang together. The Com
mercial club. Real Estate exchange and
other organisations are going to appoint
committees to confer with the city council
with a view to a revision of the city char,
ter. The Railway Employes' association
will sena a committee also."
8. B. Moore read an editorial which ap
peared in the World-Herald, attacking the
organisation, and made a spirited reply.
8. C. Macomber of North Platte made a
sarcastic speech, saying he presumed the
next thing some newspapers which have
attacked the new organisation would do
would be to take steps to have the rail
road men disfranchised.
