Republican Couuty Convention.
The attendance at the republican
county mass convention called for last
Satuniav was verv small, owing to
the fact that the ram kept the fann
ers at home, and few even of the city
people turned out on account of the
heavy down-pmir in progress at the
time of tile meeting.
The convention was called to order
by Chairman Lueschen. and R. P
Drake of Humphrey, was cin.sen
chairman, with E. H. TiiFany -eer-tary.
Frank Schram moved that the
delegates Chosen to the collgreSsiolia.
convention be instructed to vote and
do all in their power to secure the
nomination of Judge A. M. Post tr
congress. Judge Post announced that
he had been very reluctant to allow
his name to be considered in c iiinection
with the nomination, but at the earnest
-oiicitation of friends, both in Platte
county ami in other counties 111 the
district, hail tinaliy decided to become
a candidate. After this announce
ment, the motion was unanimously

Professor Gideon Braun. the repub
lican candidate for county -upenntend-ent
was then called on for a speech,
and responded in a few well cno-en
words. At the close of his remarks,
the chairman, looking carefully around
the mom. called for a few remarks by
our candidate for clerk of the district
court. Hon. C. M. Gruenther. .Mr.
Gnieiither addivs--ed the convention as
"Feilow republicans. ' and assured
them that he was glad to know that
there was one man on the ticket who
nail reasonahie assurance of election.

following resolutions were presented
