fOK PtttO ATE TO COHOtll,
JUDGE F. FERGUSON.
We publish lo-diy, the -proceedings of
t! Territorial Convention. hi'U in this
city on last Tuesday. There were a very
Urge number In attendance, aside from
the regularly appointed delegates and
we are sorry to say, that a part of the
crowd whirh came from Omnha, attended
for the express a id avow$J pun .0 of
disturbing tlie deliberations of the people
who were tent here ly their constituents
and finally to break up the Convention
. in a row. But thanks to the energy and
deci.ion of the President and other mem
ten, lur'.aincd ky our efficient Mayor-
lacked ly the firm and dot p-r oted de
termination of the law-abiding citizen of
Bullcvue to put down at all hazard, the
turbulent, mob which were imported from
a certain location for that purpose. In
giving exprenion to our feeling in re
gard to this ntuttcr, we do not wish to be
understood, that we charge that every
one who came from Omaha were actuated
y the tame feelings and purposes on
the contrary we know that there were
gentlemen from Omaha, who deprecated
the action taken by a few from that place
high-minded, honorable gentlemen, who
would acorn to invade the deliberations of
a body of freemen, who, in accordance
with the usage, aud agreeable to a right
guarantied to them by the Constitution
and laws of our common count y, were
p.aceably congregated together for the
purpose of expressing their views, and
selecting a repretentativ in whom to re
pose the highest trust within the power of
the people of the Territory to confer.
But for tho present, wo will let this pass.
The Convention mrt in the forenoon at
the . School-House, for the purpose of a
preliminary' organization, which leing
had, they adjourned to meet at 2 o'clock
P. M., for the purpose of a permanent
organization adoption: the reports of
committees and the selection of a candi
date. At the time appointed the houe
was crowded with a somewhat mixed
ero vd, among whom we made our ap
pearance. The boys hud some fun in
the way of speech making all pniscd
off in good humor, and it was nearly 3
o'clock before the delegates appeared
After the delegates took their teats, and
the permanent officers had assumed their
duties, the first in order was the report of
the committee ou Credentials. When
Douglas county was called, Gov. Cum
ing, although not appointed as a dele
gate, asked leave to present a few re
marks which, through th courtesy of
tho President lion. S. A. Strickland,
was permitted. He was immediate ly fol
lowed I y another out-sider, an erotic and
facetious individual from Burt county, I y
the name of Col. Harrington, who seem
to glory in having " th nerve " to speak
his mind when and where he r leasts,
provnlcd he does not infringe upon the
ru'es. After the tirrroui man hod taken
hi seat, the President distinctly informed
the meeting that he would listen to no
one, who was not a delega'e -but not'
wiihstrnling this ennouwt' tn-ut, Gov.
Curoming insisted upon bein heard, and
Icing properly refused I y the President
the out-siders near the door interfered
and seemed determined thai he should be
heard and confusion worse confound d
reijrned supreme. The President was
undecided only for a moment his keen
eye detected all around and among the
mob a moral and a physical fort suffi
cient to quell the disturbance, and I ke a
man, he mounted his chair, rapped his
hammer and succeeded in rettorinir some
thing like order. He then informed tbem
that we had a Mayor, Marshal and a
Sheriff of the county, who were on the
gromd, an J that the delegates were not
to be driven from a house lo which they
l.ad been admitted that he knew the cit
izens of Bellevue would sustain orde,
and not permit a mob to deter them from
doin their duty. When he took his seat,
our Mayor, Mr. Jennings, asked leave
to say a fews w rJs, when he informed
tbem that the school house had been
piven to the delegates for the purpose of
holding their convention, end that they
ibould be protected in their rights at all
hazards. The Mayor being a large,
ponly, good looking man, and withal a
(j'oi fithtfr in a good cause, he wa list-
f ned to respectfully and like tihool-boys
they quailed beneath his loo'i.
After orJer was restored the Conven
tion proceeded to business, for the particu
lars of whirh we refer to their proceedings.
After the first ballot it was evident that no
selecion could le made from the randi
dates before the Convention; Gen. Bowtit,
volun'arily resigned in favor of Judye
Fergujon. It had been rumored that this
Convention was Rotten tip I y a eliqut for
the purpose of not nil Hiring Gen. Bowen.
aud all aorta of stories and surmises were
circulated and believed, and in order to
prove the falary of such stories, Chief
Justice Ferguson, than whom, no better
or more uprighf man exists in the Terri
tory, was nnsolicittd on hi part, prevailed
upon to take the nomination, and no one
was more Industrious In bringing about
the ronsuma ion of this object than Gen
B owen. So fearful was a pnrt of the del
egation from Washington county, thru f rant!
and section" I strife wan to be mixed up in
this matter, that bt for the Convention en
tered into a I allot they withdrew. We
are however, lengthening out this article to
a gn ater extent than we nnt!c'pted when
we begun, nnd ahull clode in a very few
worda promising to ncur to it agnin.
Chit f Justice Ft rguscn, is now our nom
inee he is a man ipon whom all can
unite he knows no sectional interests,
and the prrple who do the voiintr hnve
confidence in him. His character hi
purity of life and his unspotted fame is far
al ovv the r ach of pt Ity malice and envy,
although their puny tlafts may be directed
against him After his nomination, a com
miltee wain d t pon him and he ap
peand, and taking up the platform, he
read each retolution commented upon
them and finally accepted the nomination
tendered to him, and in a beautiful and
chas-te ipeech,rferrid tohispa services
in this infant Territory r- marking in
conclusrn, that his duty forbid his resigna
tion os Chief Justice, before the 22J inst.,
a he had to meet his brethren of the
Judiciary, to adjust some important mutters
in regard to the interetts of litigant lut
when these decisions were given, he would
cheerfully resignattend to the call of the
convention imposed upon him and labor to
secure the position to which th ir friend
ship and partiality l.nd assigned him. He
was cheered ly the crowd, and on 'a'uncr
his seat Grn. Bowen was cnllt d upou nnd
reponde4 in a 6hort and telling speech,
endorsing the action of the convention,nnd
aid, he wus rei dy o go into the fight and
would labor faithfully to secure the trium
phant success ef the nominee.
We therefore this week, take down the
name of Gen. Bowen, and raise that of
Judge Fertrusion the peoples candidate,
feeling snti.fied that the ycomnnry cf the
country the voters, will endorse the se-
ocuon oi me convention.
