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. Clougb. Senatorial convention F. E. Red dish, G. G. Hampton, Geo. V. Clark, W. H. Swan, D. W. Hughes, C. E. Clougb. 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 terms." 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, . "One Butler" Printer Wanted. A competent, reliable printer can find a permanent position at good wages at this office; no booze fighter. Mr. and Mrs. W. W.
