RED WILLOW COUNTY REPUB-
r LICAN CONVENTION.
lAirri.KY , Neb. , July 19th , 1S90.
The Republican Countj' Convention met
pursuant to call at the city hall , Hartley ,
Neb. , July 19th , 1S90 , was called to order at
11 o'clock , A. M. , by J. Byron Jennings ,
chairman of the republican county central
committee , when the following proceedings
were had , to-wit : On a call of precincts by
the secretary , F. M. Kiininel ) , the precincts
of Bondville , Lebanon , North Valley and
Jted Willow announced contesting delega
tions. John E. Kelley nominated Dr. B. B.
Davis of McCook as temporary chairman of
the convention. Wm. A. McCool of In-
dianola nominated W. B. Spain of Iudianola
as temporary chairman of the convention.
Both nominations duly seconded and chair
man of county central committee announced
that under the "time honored rule" the
contesting delegations would not be entitled
to vote on the temporary organization.
Motion made by W. A. McCool on the part
of the friends of W. B. Spain that all the
delegates present ( including the contesting
delegations ) be allowed to vote on the tem
porary organization , which motion was sec
onded by G. T. Brewer on the part of the
friends of Dr. B. B. Davis , and on a call of
precincts the same was carried by the follow
ing vote , viz : Box Elder delegation , five votes ,
voting "No , " Tyrone delegation , five votes ,
refusing to vote at all , and the remaining pre
cincts numbering in the aggregate 92 dele
gates voting for said motion. Point of order
made by W. B. Spain , nominee for temporary
chairman , that there was no question before
the house upon which any vote could legally
be taken ; sustained by chairman county
central committee , said chairman btating
inasmuch as the motion had been adopted
by the friends and supporters or both W. B.
Spain and Dr. B. B. Davis , candidates for
temporary chairmanit might be well to allow
all delegates ( including contesting delega
tions ) to vote on the temporary organization.
On motion call of precincts was taken up on
vote for temporary chairman , and pending
the roll call W. A. SlcCool made a motion
that the nomination of W. B. Spain be made
by acclamation , which was seconded by the
supporters of said Spain , and by them in
sisted that the chairman of the county cen
tral committee put said motion to the house ,
but said chairman refused to entertain said
motion pending roll call , and refused to put
the same before the house on the ground
that inasmuch as there Avere two nomina
tions made for the chairmanship of the con
vention neither could be elected by aeclama ?
tion without the withdrawal of the other
and a suspension of the rules , to which
ruling of the chairman of the county central
committee W. B. Spain appealed to the
house , which appeal the chairman refused to
entertain on the ground that pending the
temporary organization there was no house
to which an appeal could be legally made ,
stating that the delegates to the convention
should elect the temporary chairman and not
the spectators who had filled the hall. At
this stage of the proceedings the supporters
of W. B. Spain became very noisy and plain
in their denunciations of the chairman of the
county central committee , and Wm. McCool
disregarding said chairman and his rulings
placed said motion that said Spain be elect
ed by acclamation before the house , and de
clared same had been carried , whereupon
said W. B. Spain assumed arbitrarily to
act as chairman of said convention , where
upon the supporters of the said Spain pre
tended to elect F. H. Stroutas secretary , and
said Spain pretended to appoint a committee
on credentials , and on the motion of the sup-
porters of the said Spain to adjourn until
one o'clock , P. M. , that portion of the dele
gates which was supporting said Spain for .
temporary chairman consisting of the pre
cincts of and number of votes : Danbury , 3 ;
East Valley , 3 ; Iudianola , 14 ; Missouri ,
Ridge , 3 ; Tyrone. 5 ; and the contesting dele- ,
gations from the precincts of Bondville , \
Lebanon , North Valley and Bed Willow - ,
withdrew from said hall ; the place where
the convention had been called to convene
and had been called to order by the chair- .
man of the said county central committee.
After the call of the roll of precincts on the (
vote for temporary chairman had been coin- ,
pleted the precinct vote stood as follows : ,
Beaver , 5 ; Bondville , 3 ; Box Elder , 5 ; Cole
man , 3 ; Driftwood , 4 ; Grant , 3 ; Gerver , 4 ;
Lebanon , C ; North Valley , 6 ; Perry , 3 ; Bed
Willow , 3 ; Valley Grange , 5 ; Willow Grove ,
20 ; all of which were cast for Dr. B. B.
Davis as chairman ( temporary ) of the con- j
vention , making aD aggregate of 70 votes cast
Cor Dr. B. 13. Davis and no votes cast for W. B.
Spain , his supporters refusing and failing to
rote on the call , whereupon the chairman of
: he county central committee announced
: hat Dr. B. B. Davis had been elected chair-
nan ( temporary ) of the convention. Dr. B. &
LJ. Davis was conducted to the chair and in- "
roduced to the convention as its chairman , s
