county, In convention duly assembled, ex
press their pride in ana approval or the
grand and mighty accomplishments
achieved in our national life by and
through republican men and republican
We especially commend the general
course of legislation and measures pro
moted by our party representatives dur
ing the administrations of McKlnley,
Roosevelt and Taft. In the face of the
record of a half century of our party's
history we feel that there can be but one
rightful conclusion, and that Is that the
necessity for a third party does not exist,
and that the best Interest of our common
country demands the perpetuation of the
republican party and that its policies and
administrations be sustained.
Therefore, we of this convention, made
up of republicans some of whom at the
late presidential primary were followers
of William Howard Taft, some of whom
there supported Theodore Roosevelt and
some of whom endorsed the favorite son
or Wisconsin, Robert M. La Follette,
uniting upon common ground for the pro
motion of what we deem best for the
common good hereby Join In the solemn
declaration that our country's welfare
demands the acceptance of the results
of the national republican convention at
Chicago, and the hearty and loyal sup
port of Its candidate, William Howard
Taft. And, be it further,
Resolved, That good faith and public
honesty demand that the custom estab
lished by more than eighty years of our
political history be observed and adhered
to, that we hereby express as the moral
conviction of this convention our solemn
belief and conclusion that no presiden
tial elector heretofore nominated as a
republican or whose name may be here
after appear on the ticket as such can In
any manner be Justified in casting his
vote as such elector for any candidate
other than William Howard Taft, whom
we recognize as the regular nominee of
the duly called national republican con
vention. And we further expressly Instruct the
delegates chosen at this convention to at
tend the state platform convention to as
far as possible carry out and promote the
sentiments expressed in these resolutions.
Two Delegations at Jefferson.
FAIRBURY, Neb., July 24.-(SpecIal.)-The
republican county convention In
Falrbury resulted in a division. The
Taft republicans of Falrbury and the en
tire county resisted the "gag rule"
methods employed by the Roosevelt) peo
ple and walked out of the convention and
went to the office of the county superin
tendent and there held a separate con
vention. The first clash came at tha
caucus In the court room Monday even
ing, when the steam roller methods were
employed by the Roosevelt faction. After
Dr. H. E. Potter was elected chairman,
former Attorney General F. N. Prout
stepped forward with a resolution en
dorsing the administration of President
Taft, but was not allowed to place It
before the convention. Charles H. Den
ney, former county attorney, asked the
privilege of talking on the resolution for
ten minutes. The question was put be
fore the house and a man who has been
one of the main leaders and exponents of
the republican party in Jefferson county
for twenty years was denied the privi
lege of speaking. At this point County
Treasurer Berry advised all Taft men to
withdraw from the caucus. As soon as
the Roosevelt caucus had adjourned
County Superintendent R C. Harrlss was
elected chairman and a second caucus
The Roosevelt following remained to
witness the proceedings. Mr. Denney
then made a splendid speech before the
entire delegation, emphatically denounc
ing the methods used, stating that it was
along the same tactics employed in Chi
cago by the Roosevelt followers. He as
serted that he attended the national
republican convention In Chicago for tour
days and was positive that Mr. Taft
was duly and honorably named as can
didate for president.
The Taft convention Tuesday elected
Charles H. Denney chairman and J. B.
Killean secretary and unanimously
adopted this resolution:
Whereas. William Howard Taft is the
regular nominee of the national republi
can party for president of the United
fetates, therefore be it
Resolved, That It Is the sense of this
convention that everything possible be
done to promote his candidacy, both In
the selection and instruction of delegates
to the republican convention.
The following delegates to attend tbe
state convention are: Charles H. Den
ney, John Ellemier, H. E. Fairchllds,
W. G. Ubley, C. W. Slaughter, Lew
