Tre republican county central

equity court room at the court house
and after the preliminaries had been
disposed of, got down to business
and filled the vacancies which exist
ed because of the resignation of A.

larly nominated as a candidate for
commissioner from the first district,

To fill the vacancy on the ticket
caused by the resignation of Mr.
Wetenkamp. George L. Farley pres
ent incumbent in the assessor's posi
tion, was selected and will according
ly be voted upon as a candidate for
that office at the November election.
No action was taken, however, rela
tive to naming a candidate for coun
to assessor, which position can not
be held successive terms by any one.
Win. Atchison who was appointed
recently to serve as commissioner
from the third district until the
holding of the fall election, was al
so named as a candidate to fill out
the unexpired term, ending a year
from next January 1st.
This completes the republican
county ticket with the exception of
the county assessorship for which it
is doubtful if anyone will be nominated.
