The Guard is a neat little paper. well

The convention held by the Sher
man county republicans last Friday
was the most harmonious and withal
the most pleasant within its history.
From the opening to the close, not
one ripple of disagreement or conten
tion marred the pleasure of the oc
casion. This was a severe blow to
some malcontents who claim party
allegiance, as well as to the opposition,
but proclaimed in no uncertain tones
that the republican party as a whole
did not propose to allow disruption
to enter to any degree into party
w orkings. All agree, friends and foes
alike, that the convention was such
an one as portends success this fail.
In another column will be found the
proceedings in detail. The conven
tiou witli utmost enthusiasm allowed
their esteemed former townsman.
Hon. John Wall, to name his own
delegation to tile state convention,
and when lie was called before the
convention to make a few remarks,
lie was greeted with even a more
friendly ovation from his old friends
and neighbors than he had for one
moment imagined would be the case.
On the county attorneyship question,
not one tiling marred the harmony of
the convention, much to the bitter
dissappointment of the opposition.
Hon. R. J. Nightingale graoefully
withdrew from the race, in a few
well chosen words, and there being
no other candidates before the con
vention for that office. Robert P.
Starr was made the unanimous choice
of the delegates, and responded in a
neat little speech of thanks for the
honor conferred. For representative,
C. T. McKinnie of Washington town
ship, H. Smelser of Ashton and R. J.
Nightingale of Loup City each re
ceived a flattering vote on the in
formal ballot, but the two latter
gentlemen declining to allow their
names to be considered, the conven
tion unanimously gave the honor to
Carl T, McKinnie. who also thanked
the delegates for the honor and
promised, if elected, as he will be. to
honor the county in his legislative
work to the utmost of his ability.
All in all, the work of the convention
is one to be proud of.
