When the convention was called to order
a few minute after 11 o'clock by Oeorge 8.
Wright, chairman of the republican county
central committee, every precinct wa rep
resented by a full quota of delegate ex
cept Kane, outside the city, which failed
to hold it primary and select th one, del
egate to which it waa entitled. After read
ing the call Mr. Wright announced Attor
ney Oeorge H. Mayne a temporary chair
man and the convention selected Charles
Atwood a temporary secretary. On as
suming th gavel Chairman Mayne laid h
would refrain from making a apeech, as
there were bo Issues at present to talk
about. The convention then got down to
business and named the following com

A recess wa taken for twenty mlnutu
In the belief that thla would prov ample
time in which for the commltteea to formu
late their reports. When noon arrived, how
ever, the committee on credential wa not
ready . to report, ao the convention ad
journed until 1:30. '
On the convention reassembling th com
mittee on credential reported that there
wire contesting delegations from Boomer
township and recommended' that both dele
gations be given seat In th convention
and permitted to cast on and a halt votes
ech, th township being entitled to three
vote. Th report and suggestion were con
curred in and the temporary organisation
wa mad permanent on th recommenda
tion of the committee on permanent organi
sation. No urprls wa manifested when ' th
committee on resolution ubmttted it re
port without including an antl-thlrd-term
resolution. It wa generally understood that
the agitation in thl respect had been
killed off during the early hour of the
morning before th convention. A toon
the resolutions reported by the commit
tee hsd been adopted Frank Turner of Knox
township offered the resolution endorsing
the renomlnatlon of Hon. O. D. Wheeler for
Judge of the district court, which wa en
thusiastically adopted. The committee on
delegate having presented It list for the
state, congressional and Judicial conven
tions, which proved agreeable to th con
vention, the work of placing the ticket in

rolling by auggeetlng that R, V. Inne be

tion and thl wa done.
Next In order wss the nomination for

thought the fun would begin. Freeman
Reed, the present Incumbent and candidate
for a fifth term, however, had things well
In hand and the nomination went to him
on the second formal ballot. It was de
cided to first take an Informal ballot and
thla resulted as follows: F. L. Reed, 78H;
O. O. Baird, S1H; H. V. Batter. 38; H.
M. Brown, 10; E. E. Bayles, 15. ,
The first formal ballot showed that II.
V. Battey, deputy clerk of the court at
Avoca and candidate from the east end
of the county had the solid vote of the
delegation from Orove, Knox, Lay ton,
Lincoln, Macedonia and Pleasant town
ship, but little strength In the city. The
ballot resulted In Reed Just missing the
nomination by one vote, the vote being:
Reed, 85; Baird, JT7H; Battey, 41; Styles,
; Brown, 9.
On the ssoond formal ballot Battey
drew from Baird and Brown, but failed
to beat Reed, th nomination going to
him with 87H vote, as against 61H for
Battey, Baird receiving 10, Brown 6 and
Elmer E. Smith had a walkaway for re
nomlnatlon for county recorder, as on th
Informal ballot he received 154 vote,
against fourteen cast for B. H. Bailey of
Loveland and six for TL H. Williams ef
this city. On motion the informal ballot
wa mad a formal on and Smith declared
Then .followed the nomination for county
attorney and It took two formal ballot to
settle It. Th Informal ballot gave W. H.
KUlpack, present Incumbent of the office,
79; C. P. Kimball, present assistant
county attorney, 61, and John M. Oalvtn
88. The Informal ballot developed th fact
that Klllpack'a strength lay in the) coun
try precinct, while Kimball had the best
of it in the city. The first formal ballot
resulted a follow: Klllpack, 85; Kim
ball, 62; Galvln, 84. The second formal
ballot gave the nomination to KUlpack
with nlnety-four vote, a against fifty
five for Kimball and twenty-four for Gal
vln. Allen Bullls and Henry C. Brande were
