what had b.jorii bt-en understood that

down upon W. J. i'ayau, the only mm

only were to be bent to tho convention.

At one time during tho evening win n

seen to rUe and tower above the bead

Scarcely had -the democratic convert

part of it delegate gone home, when
the gavel sounded for order In the re
publican convention.
For pureiine-sided harmony, thl con
vention was the crown to anything of
tho kind it bad ever been our pleasure
to witness. It was evident from tho
start that the Maxwell delegate' were
"not In it." Thootbtr fellow bad It
all their own way. They named a
chairman; they seated their chairman;
they named their committees; they re
fused to adjourn though a vote was car
ried In favor of doing so; they enforced
gag-rule to the disgust of honest-mlnd-ed
men; tlicy forced vote after vote un
til the field was enabled to unito their
forces against thut grand old man Judge
Maxwell, who dated to be honest al
though holding office at the hand of
republicans, and he was Jgriomlnlously
"turned down."
Several delegations ouletly went
home before the convention was out.
Expressions of dissatisfaction were '
numerous. Scores of delegates declared
their intention of supporting Judge
Holcomb, tbe people' party nominee.
Coo prominent republican, high up la
tho counsel of hi party, but wbo wa
and is an uncompromising Maxwell
man, said to the wd'er: "There ha
Ixei too much free railroad transmuta

Tom Bctlton a public dlpenor, for
Judge aMaxwell to stand any show."
