II IN IEPK HER YESTER
DAY 10 SELECT DELEGATES
Everything Passed Off Smoothly, and Resulted in the Selection of
Ten Taftites and Six Roosevelt Delegates to the State
Convention Adjournment Before the Resolu
tion Man Had an Opportunity to Get
in His Work.
Cass county republican
convent ion met yesterday
at Weeping Water, and for the
first time in history adjourned on
the eve of a presidential cam
paign without adopting a resolu
tion endorsing the acts of a re
The Hoosevelt following pre
sented the name of It. B. Wind
ham for temporary chairman,
while the supporters of President
Taft placed Dr. M. M. Butler,
postmaster of Weeping Water
during the Harrison administra
tion, in nomination. The vote
showed the Roosevelt forces -in
the majority, II. B. Windham re
ceiving 87 votes, while the ad
ministration candidate. Dr. But
ler, received but 80.
Mr. Windham was escorted to
the chair and made the keynote
speech for the campaign in Cass
county, which was along progres
sive lines wholly. Candidates were
not mentioned by name and the
trend of the speech was ultra pro
gressive and at times dangerously
near condemning the policies of
the present administration, or at
least the environment of the chief
figure in the administration. The
speech was lengthy and when it
was finished there was a disposi
tion to at once get down to busi
ness and affect a permanent or
ganization. The temporary or
ganization was voted in without
opposition, as it appeared the pro
gressive element had a clear
The convention proceeded to
allow each ward and precinct to
name a delegate, the names to be
placed in a hat and sixteen drawn
out, which sixteen should con
stitute Cass county's represent a.
tion to the state convention. This
method cut out about nine pre
rinds' from having a delegate and
resulted in the Taft following get
ting ten and the Hoosevelt follow
ing six delegates.
The sixteen delegates chosen
were: K. M. Pollard, Clark New
lan, L. C. Todd, C. L. Wiles, F. M.
Phebus. W. A. Robertson, C. A.

As soon as the business of the
convention was completed Mr.
Windham called J. M. Teegarden
to the chair and was about to
start the fun by offering resolu
lions to the effect that the dele
gales selected by this convention
vote only for a progressive as
chairman of the slate convention.
Peter Eveland, one of I he veteran
republicans from Elmwood pre
cinct, thought he could see a large
sized storm brewing near the
horizon, and in the interests of
peace and harmony, arose and
made a motion to adjourn, which
was seconded instanter by another
peace advocate, and before Mr
Windham had produced the
resolutions, which had been snug
gled in his inside pocket, the con
vention had adjourned. The only
votes taken was on the organiza
tion and on the motion for ad

A. S. Will and wife, who left

Lancaster county republicans
in precinct caucuses fought out
the question of Roosevelt or Taft
and in most instances the Roose
velt followers were successful.
From the present complexion of
the delegates chosen to the coun
ty convent ion. it seems certain
that when Ihe convention as

tion of Roosevelt men will be sent
to Ihe state convention, says the
Most, interesting of nil the pre
cinct lights was the scrap made
by Taft men on Paul Clark, re
publican candidate for congress in
the First district, who has re
pudiated the action of the repub
lican convention at Chicago and
is an out ami out Roosevelt man.
Twice during the caucus of (he
candidate's home precinct resolu
tions were presented that Clark
either support the national ticket
or get out. The motion was first
presented by Elmer Stephenson,
but he was forced to retire and
(hen L. L. Lindsay made practical
ly Ihe same motion as Stephenson.
Each lime it was lost by the
narrow margin of seven voles.
Nearly 120 voters attended the
Resolutions were adopted en
dorsing Clark and the state and
county tickets, but no reference
was made tu Taft or Roosevelt. A

optimist of education. For over
a quarter of u century you have
been passing out that Xew Eng
land and National Journal of
yours with all the enthusiasm of
a young man who has just dis
covered a fine thing called educa
tion. For over twenty-five years
you have been a confident teacher
of teachers. By Ihe pen, you have
produced 1,511 essays, editorials
and special articles, steaming
with encouragement. By word of
mouth in every normal school
worth mentioning, in more than a
hundred colleges, at teachers' in
stitutes and conventions uncount

gratified, flattered, praised, cajol

criticisms from more directions

Sent Up From This County Last
April for an Indeterminate
(iovernor Aldrich has issued an
unconditional pardon to Charles
Allen Whiting, who was convicted
last April of bigamy. He lived in
Omaha at the time, but was con
victed in this county, where his
bigamous marriage occurred. He
is serving an indeterminate sen
tence of from one to seven years.
Judge Travis, who sentenced
the prisoner, said in a letter to the
pardon board he considered Whit
ing not a criminal in reality but
merely a foul. J. S. Butler of Ihe
pardon board wrote a long opinion
which tie sumnitleii to the gov
ernor, but he forgot to say
whether or not he recommended a
pardon. The oilier members of
I lie board recommended clemency
with the understanding that
Whit ing w ill live with and support
his first wife and their two chil
dren, who are in destitute cir
cumstances. Whiting was working in Omaha
when he and his wife had some
trouble and she left for her homo
in Lincoln. One portion or I ho
pardon record shows that Whiting
leserled his wife ond children at
Nebraska City and that he was
paying attention to other women.
He met. a woman named Mrs.
Backus in Omaha and came to
Plattsmouth, where they were
Whiting's trouble is attributed
partially to drink, but when ho
was married a second lime he ap
peared lo lie sober. The officers
of the law who were familiar with
the case expressed fear II hat
Whiting, if pardoned, would not
support his first wife, but the gov
ernor followed the recommenda
tion of two members of Ihe hoard
and issued a pardon.
