OMAHA, September 0.-- Ben Butler, In a speech before the NebrasKa State fair, said all the farniel s in Cass county, Iowa were mortgaged for more than they would sell for. If the East could send goods "West and get; corn In return it would benefit both. Nebraska corn that sells for fifteen to eighteen cents brings seventy-five cents East. The coat of transportation was caused by the enormous interest paid on the bonds and watered stocks of the fnsc freight lineS and railroads that fldnned the people. The government give away principalities of land, took mortgage on it and allowed other mortgages. Transportation should be made cheap. Managers get nway with the bulk ot their capital and the people have to pay rates they cunnot live on. Corn is disposed of In Chicago for the benefit of speculation. A znaxi can frtetU $3,OOO,OOO of pork in Chicago and go unpunished, while one who steals · iigh to support life is sent to jail.

There is, he said, an uprising in the State against the Frank James Democracy, and if fairly taken advantage of, it ·would emancipate the State from Democratic control. He then named Ex-judge Wagner, of ft. Louis, os ttmporary chairman. On taking the chair. Judge Wagner declared the' Cbicsgo platform a splendid one, and the uomineis presajred a November victory. Sjeohing of the Democratic state administration, he said r.ssacsination had been connived ot by high offictrs; outlaws had been protected in their outlawry; criminal laws had been rcocle a farce by the exercise of tho pardoning pL-w er iu favor of men who violated the law jmeroly because they were friends of officials. Ccnimitttes on credentials, etc., were appointed. A resolution was offered for the appointment of a committee, one* from each district, to confer among themselves to consider how to unite all antl Bourbon organizations, with a view to the construction of a state ticket on which all could unite. A conference committee was appointed and a recess taken until 2 p. m. BT. louis, September 9.--The convention Teessrmbled at 2:30, and General D. P.

The business Democrats in St. Louis, ho said, wonted to vote tar come good man against Marmaduke-, the Democratic nominee for governor. A resolution denouncing ttio nomination of Harrnaduke as a premium*on his adherence to the Southern can?o wan referred. Also one declaring it unwise for the assembly to indulge lu nnv further liquor legislation whatever until the license law is fully tested. After two hours wait on tho committee on platform, during which nearly a dozen short speeches -were made by prominent delegates, the committee, through Ata chairman. Colonel R. T. VanhorDj submitted the following platform: Resolved, that we indorse the administration of President Arthur as eminently wise aid conservative and patriotic, reflecting the test nio-s and highest aspirations of the Republican party. Tba t w o heartily indorse the nomination of Jsmef: G. Elaine and John A, Logan, and we pledce them our cordial support at the approaching election. That we cordially indorse the platform adopted by the National Republican conven- tirn, ns cnibodj ing the principles of progress, liberty, good sovernment and administration reform. . That we indict the BourbOLi Democracy of . 13 isscuri for persistently ignoring the Union element of the State, while the Republican. fparty has oblitsrated every disability growing ''cut of the -war. Yet the Democratic party etill insists in persecuting meii for their loyalty, and in making, service in the var against tie government a condition for.'important tfttcts c-f the Stateand for senator^ and representatives in Congress. 3:bat against this policy we protest as an insult to the United States and as an example fraught with demoralization to the patriotism of the youth of the country in all future time; also, for its alliance with and the protection of tbenotoiious and confessed banditti, whose presence in Missouri has driven immigration irom its borders and capital from its industries. AH these have been most offensively repeated in the" nomination of the present Bourbon state tickefc, at the head of "which bos been placed the man whose only claim to notoriety was in his conspicuous position in the army recently waging, war on the government by which bo was educated; therefore be it Resolved, that we believe the time has come Hi the history of the State of Missouri when all good citizens, witbojt regard to post differences, shall lay aside all party prejudice sr.d unite in wresting the government of the Slate from the hands of that party which, by ils repeated acts of lawless and misrule, bas bttrayed every trust confided to its keeping, and bos disgraced the fair TjEtrae of our State at home and abroad, -*]hat we arraign the Democratic party for the present system of leasing the convict labor of our penitentiary as detrimental to the in- lerels of labor and degrading in its tendencies, lind deu.and that it be abolished. Resolved, that all corporations created by the people are subject to control by the same power that created them. . Resolved, that some system should be established to all difference between capital and Jalor wherever they come in conflict, so as to jStvent long and injurious strikes which pro- ctv« differing among the laboring people. j Resolved, that the Republican party is now as it has always been in favor of granting literal aid to educate the youth of the State, and of labor bar?aus under the control and supervision of representatives of the labor in- tuets of the State. The report was adopted without a dissenting vote. The ccmmlttee on conferance, through Chairman Warner, submitted a report as follows: Your committee recommends to the convention for adoption the following: Resolved, that this convention twlievingthat Hon. Nicholas Fcrd, of Buchunan counljvis the proper j.erson to lead to victory the opponents o* Courbonism; therefore be it Revived, that we indorse him as the choice cf this convention as a candidate for governor. Resolved, further, that this convention Jet Jta to its state committee the selection of 2U.ZEIS for candidates for secretary of Btate; Jackson were alive to-day he would vote for him, for he would say, " By the eternal these wrongs must be righted," and they would ba. They can be righted now by send Ing the proper man to Congress. The Pittsburgh riot will be rej eated if ihe people don't take warning. The cry of over production should be changed to underconsumption. The people were starving while the JNebiasfca graneriea were over flowing- with grain. The railroads will not nJlow grain and manufacturers to be brought together so as to live. He said tho laborers ond farmers have power to elect presidents; ihe old parties should be abandoned and vote together, and in a few years they would liberate themselves as the abolitionists liberated the slaves.
