It was one of the liveliest meetings ever
held by the Second Ward Republican club,
and the discussion rsnged from the action
of the republican delegation from Douglas
county in the state legislature to the seat
ing of the delegates from Clontarf precinct
In the last republican county convention.
There were extraneous Interpolations by E.
r. Moresrty from the Sixth ward and H. M.
Waring from the Fourth ward. It ended
with a threat on the part of Gus Harte to
secure personal satisfaction at another
time and place "rom Mike Dee, after Fred
Hoye and W. W. Bingham had been called
before the club to make explanation of
personal sctlon ss delegates from ths ward
snd ss candidates. '
Fred Behm called ths meeting to order
and In the absence of Henry Knodell, C. F.
Hopper acted as secretary. In calling the
meeting to order Mr. Behm said that he had
known Walter Bingham long and well and
that under ordinary circumstances the ward
should give htm anything he wanted, but
that at this time the republicans should
nominate 'a man who could be elected, and
that he therefore had decided in favor of
supporting 'Frank E. Moorea. This state
ment was received with loud cheers.
Philip Stein, a candidate fcr the council,
was then called upon and gave a rambling
account of a personal altercation he had
had with Fred Hoye, which ended by Hoye
slapping his rival In the face. Fred Hoye
was called upon for sn explanation, which
he gave, and his sxplanattou seemed to sat
isfy the crowd.
W. W. Bingham made a short talk, being
followed by Fred Bruning, candidate for tax
commissioner, who urged all interested per
sons to corns to the polls early, ss under
existing conditions, but about 600 votes
can be recorded at the primaries, while
there are about 1,800 in the ward.
