Republicans Meet and Name a Strong
The Republicans of Webster county
met at the court house in lteil Cloud,
Wednesday morning at 11 o'clock,
(ieorgo Newhouse, secretary of the
comity central committee, called the
convention to order, in the absence of
Chairman Cather. Following the ap
pointment of a committee on creden
tials and a committee on permanent
organization the convention adjourned
until 1 :.')() p. in.
Upon the reassembling of the con
vention the committee made their re
ports. The tvport of the committee or
permanent organization recommend
ing Emanuel 1'eters of (Juide Rock for
chairman and Oeorge Xcwhouso for
secretary was adopted.
The lirst order of business was the
selection of delegates to the state con
vention, and upon motion it was
agreed to allow Secretary of State
(Jalusha to choose the delegation.
It was then moved that the chair
man of the various delegations select
delegates the congressional, iloat rep
resentative and senatorial conventions,
which was amended so the delegations
should not be selected until the choice
of the convention for senator and iloat
representative was made.
Following this aeiion nomination
for county attorney were called for.
and it was moved that A. M. Walters
be renominated by acclamation, but
the motion was lost. On the informal
ballot Walters received 111 votes. Chatliu
i:i, Keeney 10, Overman Sand Colviu 15.
Tlie first formal ballot gave Walters
100, Chanin K.. and Walters wis de
cliircd the nominee of the convention.
This action of the convention was a
deserved compliment to .Mr. Walters,
whose conduct of the county attorney's
olllce has been above reproach, inas
much as he has refused to prosecute
criminal eases in which the county
would be put to great expense with
out much possibility of securing a
conviction. Mr. Walters has also made
a record in the matter of collecting
lines from convicted persons which
has not been equalled in many years.
Nominations for representative were
called for and on the informal ballot
Uenkel received 47, Ellingor 23, Mills
J 8, Putnam 17, Johnston SI.
On the first formal ballot the voto
was: Uenkel 57, Johnston 27, Ellingor
SO, Mills 10, Putnam 10.
On the second formal ballot Uenkel
received 78, Kllinger 10. Mills 20,
Johnston IS, and Uenkel was declared
Win. Uenkel, of Inavnle, is one of
the best known farmers and stockmen
in the west part of the county, and
the convention could have made no
better choice for the honor.
There was no opposition to Dr. U.
F. Uaines for Iloat representative, and
he was declared the unanimous choice
of Webster county for that olllce. and,
as it is our turn to have this oflice. he
will undoubtedly be the choice of the
There were live candidates for the
senatorial nomination, and on the lirst
formal ballot W. E. Thorite of Bladen
was declared Webster county's choice!
and, as in the case of Iloat representa
tive, it is Webster county's turn to
have the senator, Mr. Thorite will
probably receive the nomination.
W. U. Anderson was nominated for
county commissioner to succeed him
