Republican County Convention.
The republican county convention
wns hold at thu court house Saturday.
C. K. Clougli acted aB chairman and H.
F. Gilman secretary. The convention
was a tame nffnii tame ltcnuse it was
one sided. The Pholtui faction was not
in evidence and weie shut off of the
delegations to the various conventions.
Nonpareil pteoinct had no representa
tion, owing to the inabiliU of our old
friend Uncle Zeke Mabm to attend.
Neither was Lawn the banner rcpub
lican precinct of the county in ovS'
dence. Can it be that such republican
war horses as our friends, Wanck,
Ford and the Ball family have lost their
patriotism? And even old Snake Creek
precinct did not respond to roll call.
The committee on resolutions, com
posed of R. M. Hampton, G. W. Clark
and T. L, Hopkins, jr., endorsed the
administration of President Roosevelt,
Governor Mickey, Congressman Kin
kaid and favored the nomination of E.
J. Burket for United States senator, H.
M. Scarle for state auditor and V. II.
Bartz for state supetintendent of schools
The resolutions were adopted by the
convention without opposition.
The next in order was the election of
six delegates to the state convention,
Lnine persons being nominated, yiz: R.
M. Hampton, V. H. Corbin, V.
R. Akcrs, F. E. Reddish, B. K Gil
man, A. M. Miller, II. J. Ellis, C. J.
Wildy and T. J. Poole. The six first
named v ere elected.
The following poisons were elected
delegates by acclamation:
Rcpiesentative convention J. S.
Gtrdes, H. R. Green, C. J. Wildy, D.
W. Butler, R. M. Hampton, C. E.
Senatorial convention F. E. Red
dish, G. G. Hampton, Geo. V. Clark,
W. H. Swan, D. W. Hughes, C. E.
L. F. Smith was nominated for com
missioner of the Third district and B.
F. Gilman for county attorney. Neither
of the gentlemen sought the nomina
tion, in fact it required much urging to
pursuade either to accept. Probably
they were prompted in their desire to
decline the nominations by their sound
judgment and foresight which tells them
that tins will be another off year for re
publicans in Box Butte county. The
old adage holds good in this case that
"Some men seek honor, others have it
thrust upon them."
W. H. Corbin, W. H. Ward and W.
H. Swan were appointed as a committee
to fill any vacancy which might occur.
W. H. Corbin was reelected chairman
f the county central committee.
Publicly Censured.
The republicans of Alliance were pleased
and much gratified" at the position" the
"Grip" took in its last weeks issue on the
manner of holding the republican pri
maries. The Grip comes out in a strong,
neat article and publicly censures C. C.
Barker and Stanley Ray, committeeman
for their respective precincts, for calling
the primaries at such an unseasonable
hour as 7 o'clock p. m.; the old line repub
licans and others as well, were at a loss
to know just why this was done, until the
Grip explained that it was for the purpose
of keeping the railroad boys from being
present. If that was the purpose, as the
Grip suggests, it was certainly reprehen
sible and worthy of the censure the Grip
gave it. The Grip says-
"The fact of having called a 'caucus at
and hour when all railroad men were at
supper is evidence that the premeditated
scheme for packing the caucus and shutting
them out was successfully carried out.
Republicans opposed to packed caucusses
and the stiffiing of opposition, denounced
the work of the caucus in unmeasured
It was generally supposed, among re
publicans that the job was put up in the
Grip office, as one of the committeemen
involved is employed there, but we were
glad to learn that we were mistaken, and
we are also glad to know that the rotten
nolitics nracticed bv those with whom the
editor of the Grip has always trained has
at last turned his stomach, made him see
the evils of their ways, and turn his back
on these evil practicos which he has here
tofore openely advocated, and now that
this state of affairs has come about, and
the editor of the Grip has reformed we are
all, with one accord willing to admit that
the world is growing better, and we pre
dict for him a brilliant future.
A Republican.
Takes Exceptions.
Ellis, in Tuesday's Times, takes excep
tions to certain features of the county con
vention proceedures. It is safe tosay that
had Ellis and his crowd manipilated the
caucuses, as they had been planning for
weeks to do, that Ellis would have gone to
several comentions with a smile on each
cheek and a dimple in his chin, and with
votes in his pockets for machine politics.
We are willing to leave it to any fair
minded republican as to whether our effort
and aim has not ever been to better the
the condition and position of the republi
can party and eliminate trickery and cor
ruption from holding first place in its de
liberations. When there are two factions
in any party, as we are sorry to say there
are in the republican party of Box Butte
county, not even an editor can very grace
fully straddle the fence, and be eminently
sure of dropping on the right side at the
right moment, and how Ellis cnu expect
to play horse with both sides, all the time,
and do the driving at that, we are unable
to see. That "one Butler and one Red
dish" referred to in the Times are for
purer politics, the interests of the republi
can party and above all for "the greatest
good for the greatest number" and their
every political move has been to that end,
