that If there were no objections the ro

Mr. Macfarlane aroso and stated,
that It would be absolutely Imposslblu
for him to serve on. account of busi
ness matters. He did not wish the

Mr. McClcllan next arose and said
that In' seconding tho nomination of
Mr. Cooke, ho had In mind the closo
relations of political n'nS business
lines at the present time. The serv
ices of' Mr. Cooke to the Roirtbllcan
party in tho past had been of incal
culable valuo and. In his mind, there
was no. man who would come closer to
getting tho support of alt tho elements
of the party as tho one he bad named.
J. P. Cooko wanted to withdraw, say
ing that be had alieady refused to run
for the puicc. ,Op referring the bat
ter Ho Mr. McClcllan, who seconded
the nomination, he positively refused
to accede to tho wish of Mr. Cooko.
Mr. McClcllan was thereupon' nomi

refused to run. Then capio a Bcrlcs

na;ed tho various candidates, seeing
how things were going, readily con

Representative Aylett, In withdraw
ing, said that the chairman of tho
district committee would have to bo a
man of experience In both buslnc,
and politics. Although bo had been in
the Legislature, be did not feel that
he had had enough experience to take
tho place. Ho would thcrefoic with
draw In favor of Mr. Cooko.
A unanimous ballot was thereupon
cast tor Mr. Cooke, and he took his
chair, saying; "This looks like a put-up

It. W. Aylett was named for tho vlcu
chairmanship and the same course was'
pursued, the secretary casting a bal
lot for Mr. Aylett. . .
When It came to the treasurer, C.
Hustace Jr. was nominated but he.pos-

not take a refusal until 3. II., Craig
arose and said liQ.dld,uot . approve of

not the best thing to appoint him
against his will.
Norman E. Gcdgo was nominated
but pleaded that it would be impos
sible! for him to serve on account of
the nature of his DUBlnoss.
All eyes then turned to J. A. Oilman,
who was1 nominated. Ho tried to re
fuse, but was told to sit down. Ho an
qulcsccd very gracefully, was elected
by a ballot cast by the secretary, Mr.
Oilman said, on being elected: "I'll da
all I can to got tho money and to pa)
It out, too"
The next business was the choice of
a man from each precinct to become
members of the executive commlttod
0. W. R. King brought up the matter
of two men from the Second on account
of the recent re-dlvlslon of this pre
cinct by tho Governor. There was
quite a lot of discussion but. Chairman
Cooko brought the whole matter to an
end by easing that this dividing up lay
with the Second Precinct. It they iii
slred to organize Into two pralncl
they would have to take action and
the matter ot an extra member of the
executive committee would then hava
to be attended to. For the present, the
old status obtained. He thereupon de
clared a recess and the various pre
cinct delegations got together.
I When the1 meeting was again called
to order, It was found that, with tho ex
I ceptlon of the Second Precinct, there
bad been absolute harmony and that
only one man had been named by each.
J The contest In the Second was between
. C. H. Wilson and Harry Murray. A
vote was taken with the result that
Wilson was chosen, 13 to 4.
The whole list ot members of the
executive committee was then read.

Second C. II. Wilson.

chair announcing that tho chair would

to be-standlng near enjoyed being
clasped by the arms of tbo fair one
who sought protection from the fury ot
