session the Douglas county republican'
convention yesterday at the court
house selected its pew county com

nates to the state convention and
made provision for the election of the
chairman and other officers of the
committee. " , ,
Byron G. Burbank was chairman
of the convention. Guy Kiddoo was
secretary. The temporary organiza
tion was at once made permanent. In
a splendid harmony address Chairman
Burbank showed how completely all
differences among republicans had
been obliterated, and declared that
while he had been an admirer of Colo
nel Roosevalt" four years ago and
others in the room had been adherents
of Mr. Taft, he was prdud to say that
all differences had been laid aside and
that there is at present but one repub
lican party. .He praised John L. Ken

clared that the republicans must elect

' Pleads for Clean Campaign.
John L. Kennedy announced that
there is only ope Kind of republican
today, and if that republican must be
designated by any other name than
"republican" he designates himself as
a "Hughes republican." He made a
plea for a clean campaign. . "Let it
not be a campaign of personalities,"
he said. "If there must be personali
ties, let us leave those to the other
side. We can afford to depend upon
the character of our candidates, and
the principles the republican party
has stood for for a generation to carry
us through?'-'-He declared it is not

MOVES WITH SPEED
Democratic County Committee
Loses No Time in Getting
Down to Business.
JIM CALLS JACKS NAMES
With lightning rapidity, the demo
cratic county committee met in Wash
ington hall at 2:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon and ten minutes later had
resolved themselves into, a county
Within thirty minutes more the
convention made Mayor Dahlman
chairman of the new county commit
tee, selected 129 delegates to the state
convention at Hastings, adopted a
ready made set of resolutions, named
the mayor as chairman of the Doug
las delegation, and plastered it with
the unit rule, indorsed the mayor,
Thomas Hoctor, Arthur Mullen, J. P.
Butler and Edward McArdle for the
democratic state committee.
The new county committee was
empowered to fill any vacancies on
the democratic ticket this fall and on
the committee itself. Other items of
business were several short addresses
and an excoriation of the Jacksonian
club of Omaha.
Committee Does Quick Work.
The meeting of the Jims was ex
peditious and harmonious. Just how
a committee could select exactly-t29
delegates to a state convention and
report back within so short a time,
was one of the surprises of the day.
Everybody, however, was" satisfied
with the report of this committee,
which comprised Lee Bridges, John
A. Rine. John Killian, William Quinn
and J. T. Mercll. k
Mayor Dahlman injected a little pep
into the procedings when he referred
to the Jacks in the following terms:
"There is ab unch of fellows who took
the name of Andrew Jackson and they
call themselves the Jacksonians. Oh,
Lord, if Jackson could come down
now and see that bunch of pirates.
They have never given a penny of
their money nor a minute of their time
to help democracy of this county. We
are giving our time and our tithes to
help the "party and weare not looking
for any reward. When those four
flushers had charge of the iounty or
ganization the republicans won out
We get results, we elect our men."
J. M. Tanner referred to the meet
ing as "the sane and respectable ele
ment of democracy," and classified the
Jacks' as puritan democrats talking
bunk to the grandstand." H. B.
Fleharty gave as hort talk.
Moiiarity Acts as Chairman.
John'Moriarity was chairman of the
convention, Claude F. Bossie was sec
retary, and B. J. McArdle, assistant

Bomb Hidden in Grip.
Theexploslont occurred at Steuart
and Market streets, two blocks from
the ferry building, on San Francis
co's main thoroughfare. The bomb,
concealed in a suitcase packed with
cartridges, bullets, gaspipe, glass and

spattered with brains.

Every, possible precaution, police
officials said tonight, was taken, but
the innocent looking suitcase stand
ing where a country visitor, of whom
there were thousands, might have set
it down, attracted no attention.
The force of the bomb was aston

and rifle shells, blown through the
crows by the explosion were picked
up in the gutters by souvenir hunt
A piece "of lead pipe was blown
two blocks into the Northwestern
Pacific railway waiting room in the
Ferry building. A woman's gold
watch, presumably belonging to one
of the victims, was blown through
the air and landed in a fruit stand
a block and a half away.

went without a break. The veterans
of the Grand Army of the Republic,

Neutral Diplomat Says British
Blacklist Is Tactical Mistake
Contlnued on Vmgm Two, Column Four.)
London, July 21, (Delayed.) A
neutral diplomat, exceptionally well
informed regarding the details of the
(-economic war which Great Britain is
waging on the central powers, today
declared to a representative of the
Associated Press that he regarded the
recent publication by the British gov
ernment, of the black list of certain
American firms as "the greatest pos
sible tactical blunder at this stage,
when a French loan is about to be
floated in America, and important
Russian financial arrangements, are,
under way there."
"It is a blunder," continued the
diplomat, "because it is unnecessary,
since for months most of the firms on
the list have been on a sub-rosa black
list At any rate, they were not on
the white list, so the government had
complete control over any of their
operations which touched British ter
ritory. "The financial section of London is
by no means unanimous in approval
of the measure, even those m Us favor
being dissatisfied with its scone, con
tending that some omissions from the
list are more significant than inclu
its puDiication at tnis time is a
mystery. One 'possible theory is that
the government s hand was forced by
recalcitrant oritisn nrms, which may
have declined to give uo tradinu with
firms not on the white list, until their
position was made -legally untenable
by the actual promulgation of the list
It the government had desired to
warn the British public, wider pub-
nciiy woum nave oeen sougnt tne
list was published only in the official

"Possibility of legal retaliation
against the black list is a Question
for International lawyers, but the pos
sibility ot unomcial retaliation is al
most unlimited. At least a Pacific

canism might make the position of
British traders in a number of fertile
fields decidedly uncomfortable. .
