The Republican county convention
held at Indianola on Wednesday July
29th was one of the most harmonious
conventions ever held in this county
where so many important offices have
sought nominations A large proportion
of the delegates were in attendance and
the greatest interest and enthusiasm
were manifested Most of the nomina
tions were made by acclamation and
even in those cases where more than one
name was presented for an office the
utmost good feeling and harmony pre
vailed and in each instance the success
ful candidate was made the unanimous
choice of the convention
Tho meeting was called to order by H
W Keyes By a vote of 81 to 26 fl H
Berry was chosen temporary chairman
and Frank Moore was unanimously se 1
lected as the temporary secretary Upon
the call of precincts the credentials of
the several delegations were delivered to
the secretary and there being no con-
tests the convention proceeded at once
with the usual business
F M Rathbun Dr J E Hathorn
and W A McCool were appointed a
committee on resolutions
The nominations for the different of
fices vproceeded without incident there
being but one name presented for each
until the call fornominations for county
surveyor developed the first ripple of ex
citement The names of James Williams
andTacob Korb lioth of Bondville pre
cinct were presentedto the convention
Theformer by a -vote of 85 to 32 re
ceived the nomination
Charles Skalla of Bondville precinct
and F P Eno of Beaver precinct were
candidates for county assessor Mr Eno
was the choice of tho convention by a
vote of 76 to 45 -

prising the Second commissioner district
bya wteof 16 to li selected j3amuel
Precier of Alliance precinct over Elias
Canagaof Redwillow precinct to repre
sent that portion of the county on the
county board and their selection was
endorsed by the convention
A committee consisting of J EKelley
J W Dolan and A Barnett was ap
pointed by the chairman to name the
delegates to the state convention
The only real conflict came over the
endorsement of a candidate for district
judge and the selection of delegates to
the judicial convention W A McCool
moved that each of Redwillow countys
three candidates H W Keyes W R
Starr and C E Eldred be permitted
to choose three delegates and that the
chairman of the convention appoint the
other two members of the delegation
F M Rathbun suggested by way of
amendment that the convention indi
cate its preference among the local can
didates and that the candidate so chosen
be allowed to select the delegates to the
judicial convention The motion and
the amendment provoked considerable
discussion but on a viva voce vote the
motion was finally adopted as amended
The result of the balloting developed Mr
Eldreds overwhelming strength The
vote stood as follows C E Eldred 80

Frank Moore and W A Dolan the pres
ent incumbents for the respective posi
The county central committee was au
thorized to fill all vacancies on the com
mittee itself and on the ticket if any
should occur

and harmonious a convention as could
have been desired
