Mr Skalla Explains
McCook Neb Aug 25 To the Edi
tor of The State Journal So much haB
been said in the papers about Red Wil
low county delegates bolting instruc
tions that in justice to those who did
not bolt and also to the voters of the
county the following absolute facts
should be made known
In our county convention on July 21 a
vote on senator was taken Out of a
total of 130 Norris Brown received seventy-nine
Rosewater three Judge G
W Norris somewhere in the thirties
and Meiklejohn a few Brown had an
absolute majority of twenty eight over
all others
The seven delegates elected were
W T Henton Danbury J E Kelley
McCook R W Devoe McCook Chas
Skalla Indianola E S Hill Indianola
James Ryan Indianola C W Mallory
Six of these were at the convention
all but Ryan Three Henton Kelley
Devoe jumped instructions and disre
garded the will of the people that sent
them Henton was chairman of the
delegation and claimed the right to and
did vote the absentee for Rosewater
The other three Skalla Hill and Mal
lory voted for Brown solid on every one
of the six ballots and would be voting
for Brown yet if a deadlock were in
progress They would never have left
Brown and they voted for Brown also
at the county convention on the prefer
ence vote They were entitled to one
half vote of the absentees but did not
deem it worth while to make a fight for
one half vote in the convention It is
needless to add that the four Rosewater
votes were cast for Miles oil both ballots
for governor while the three Brown
votes went to Sheldon both times The
above statements are absolute facts
Yours respectfully
Chas Skalla
