THE TICKET HADE.
Continued from 3d page.
In spite of the vigorous efforts made to
curtail the recess hour, before adjourn
ment, there was no disposition on the
part of the majority of tbe delegates to
abide by the motion apparently, for at
1 o'clock not more than one-fourth of
the delegates were on hand. At 1:15
o'clock, however, Chairman Patton ap
peared,and at once rapping for order an
nounced that nominations for the office
of coroner were then in order.
R. Stroud of Alhambra arose and
placed in nomination Dr. J. C. Hannon.
J. Deßarth Shorb said that in spite of
the fact that the young men of the
Democracy were already well repre
sented upon the ticket, he arose to place
in nomination for the office of coroner
another young rrian in the person of
Thomas F. Donahue.
L. C. Winston of Pasadena seconded
the nomination of Dr. J. C. Hannon.
T. E. Gibbon of the Third ward
seconded the nomination of Thomas F.
E. H. Bentley of Compton seconded
that of Dr. Hannon.
M. F. Gibbons of Wilmington moved
that the nominations be then cloßed.
At this juncture, however, Judge
Guthrie of the Fourth ward placed in
nomination Dr. H. Nadeau, an an
nouncement which was received with
J. W. Swanwick seconded the nomina
tion of that old and tried Democrat, Dr.
J. C. Hannon.
L. T. House of Redondo Beach
seconded the nomination of Dr. J. C.
Col. J. J. Ayers said that nothing
could afford him greater pleasure than
to second the nomination of Dr. Nadeau,
but he had been informed that that
gentleman was about to leave the state
on a European tour and could not there
fore accept a place on the ticket. He
would like to induce him to stay in Los
Angeles, as he was a tower of strength
and would control a large number of
votes, which had been utterly and en
tirely neglected by the Republican
party. "If Dr. Nadeau will run," said
Col. Ayers, "I will take greatpleasure in
seconding his nomination. If not, I
will take equal pleasure in performing a
like duty for that old and tried Demo
crat, Dr. J. 0. Hannon, who has already
filled that and other offices with credit
to himself and the party he represents."
J. C. Morgan of Santa Monicaseconded
the nomination of Dr. Nadeau, —"if
Chairman Patton said he had no
authority to say whether or not Dr.
Nadeau would accept the nomination,
but in all probability the gentleman who
placed in nomination knew.
Judge Guthrie said that personally he
knew nothing about the matter. He
had been informed, however, that if
Dr. Nadeau was nominated by aecla
matiou he would accept the nomina
tion. This announcement was received
Frank Hamm stated that he had
spoken to Dr. Nadeau on Tuesday even

T. E. Gibbon withdrew the name T. F.
Donahue from the list of candidates, ex
plaining that it was understood that Dr.
Nadeau was not in the race, when his
nominee entered the contest.
The roll was then called and the re
sult when announced was as follows :
Dr. H. Nadeau g 218

The announcement was received with
prolonged cheers, which were renewed
when L. T. House moved that Dr.
Nadeau's nomination be made unani
mous by acclamation, and it was so
Nominations of candidates for the
office of county surveyor were, then de
clared to be in order, and L. T. Ho use of
Redondo Beach placed in nomination
the name of L. Friel of that place. He
apologized for not having kissed the
Blarney stone, and therefore not having
"the gift of gab," but in eloquent tones
he claimed recognition for the seaboard
of the county, which had as yet no repre
sentative on the ticket. He said that
the Republicgns in making their ticket
had evidently considered fitness as a
plant which only grew within the limit
ed district 'round Los Angeles city, as
thirteen out of their eighteen nominees
were from the city. This convention,
however, recognized fitness as a plant in
digenous to the whole county, and had
already recognized every part of the
county but that little strip along the
coast. Mr. Friel had had nineteen
years' experience, and had no superior
in the county as an engineer. He was a
thorough Democrat withal. Redondo
Beach two years ago was not even a pre
cinct, and had never as yet cast its
maiden vote, but this yea* it would cast
250 (cheers), and of those, whether Friel
was nominated or not, it would cast a
majority of at least 50 for the Demo
J. Deßarth Shorb apologized for taking
the floor so often, but he came to place
in nomination J. B. Winston, a gentle
man for whom he had more feeling than
any of those he had spoken of- before,
because he was the son of a gentleman
who was personally beloved by the whole
of Los Angeles county. Much had been
said of the late Col. Volney E. Howard,
and he echoed every sentiment that had
been uttered of him, but the name of
Dr. Winston brings the heart of every
man who knew him to his throat. The
gentleman I nominate is a worthy son
of his worthy and beloved sire.
R. Ling in seconding the nomina
tion Mr. Winston said he did not do so
becauseiof his old father, whose name
brings tears to the hearts of the older
Los Angeles county Democrats, but be
cause he was a sterling young Democrat
and a gentleman eminently fitted for the
position. He would bring 500 Dem
ocratic votes, because the older citizens
would rally round his standard. If Mr.
Winston was elected the party will be
spared the humiliating spectacle of see
ing a notice posted on the door of tlie

county surveyor's office to the effect that
he could not pay 20 cents on the dollar.
Judge J. T. Bearden in seconding the
nomination of L. Friel thought it was
right and just that the seaboard should
be represented on the ticket, and that it
would be characteristic of the Demo
cratic party's actions to do so.
J. C. Morgan of Santa Monica sec
onded the nomination of J. B. Win
Calvin Edgerton of Vernon also
seconded Mr. Winston's nomination,
and extolled the memory of the county's
dead heroes. He was interrupted by
cries of '•Time." but excitedly yelled":
"I'll speak my speech out, and you shall
not put me down in speaking of a dead
hero's son." He concluded with the
hope that the Democratic party would
take this native son by the hand and
lead him to the seat of honor.
R. J. Adcock, of University, seconded
the nomination of L. Friel in an elo
J. Marion Brooks, who was compelled
to get upon the platform, seconded the
nomination of Mr. Friel. He said that
the name of a pioneer's son had been
presented. He would have been a pio
neer himself if the opportunity had oc
curred; but it was not those who lived
upon the records made by their fathers
before them, who lived in the hearts of
the people. It was those who made
their own records, pioneers or other
wise. Mr. Winston was a young man of
culture and refinement; but Mr. Friel
is a man of experience and he hoped
that that would carry some weight with
Col. J. J. Ayers then rose to second
Mr. Friel's nomination, which he did
Gentlemen : If there is any man in this
convention who should second a nom
ination as a pioneer it is me. If any one
should second the nomination of a son
of Dr. Winston, it is me, for it was in
'49, in Chili Gulch, Calaveras county,
that I first met Dr. Winston. Now, all
this talk about pioneers' sons is not
what should be said in a Democratic
convention. We are not only here to
nominate the best men, but the strong
est ticket with which to confront the
enemy. With all due respect to Mr.
Winston and all honor to the memory of
his respected father, this is nc time
or place for sentimentalisra. I therefore
second the nomination of Mr. Friel
for the reasons given us, viz : that the
seaboard of the county has been over
looked, and I think that district should
be represented upon the ticket.
Judge Guthrie also seconded the nom
ination of Mr. Friel, and stated that by
placing him upon the ticket the party
would secure the votes of E. T. Wright's
On motion of W. B. Crisp, the nomi

On motion of Judge Morgan, of Santa
Monica, the momination of Mr. Friel
was made unanimous by acclamation.
The next order of business being that of
nominating a candidate for the office of
public administrator, George S. Patton
resigned the chair to Vice-President Jno.
Bryson, and rose to comply with a duty
which he felt strongly and deeply
interested in, not only on account of the
person he should name, but on account
of the valuable services he had rendered
to the party during the past eight years.
Mr. Billy Waters (loud and prolonged
cheers), as secretary of the Democratic
county central committee, had always
been in the forefront of the battle for
the good of the cause, and though poor, he
had not only refused to accept one dollar
of compensation for his services, but he
had willingly met every call that had
been made upon him. (A voice—"l
move we nominate Billy Wa
ters by acclamation"). This
is the first favor he has ever asked at
your hands, and if elected he will poll
more Republican votes than any man on
the ticket. Cheer after cheer rent the
air as the speaker closed, and cries of
"Waters" were heard.
Judge J. T. Bearden in nominating
W. E. Hughes, said that unfortunately,
all could not be secretaries of the
county central committees, but his nom
inee had rendered every service to the
party that ha could. He was a gentle
man of undoubted respectability, com
petent, and peculiarly fitted for the
Captain A. F. Mackey seconded the
nomination of Mr. Hughes.
F. B. Colver, on behalf of the solid
delegation from the Second ward, heart
ily seconded the nomination of Mr.
Waters. He had known him for eight
years, and he was always at work for
the party, early and late.
L. C. Winston of Pasadena followed
suit, as did also W. B. Crisp
of Sierra Madre, who at the
close of his remarks moved that the
nominations be closed.
J. H. Brewer of Vernon here took the
floor and said: "I want this conven
tion to understand that Billy "Waters is
not fromj West Virginia, but from
Maryland; if anybody wants to know
about the Democracy of Maryland, "by
g—d, let 'em ask me."
Mr. Waters was called upon to make
a speech when on the platform paying
his $5 fee, but he declined on the plea
that he would do so later, if nominated.
Mr. Hughes said that if nominated he
would do the best for the ticket. He
was not a speaker and begged to be ex
The secretary then proceeded with
the roll call, but only a few precincts
had been called when Judge Bearden,
who had nominated Mr. Hughes, with
drew his nomination and moved to nom
inate Waters by acclamation. The mo
tion was carried with enthusiasm, and
the convention again insisted upon a
speech. Mr. Waters then appeared
upon the platform and simply said :
"Gentlemen of the county and city, I
thank you from the bottom of my heart
for the honor you have done me. It is
getting late and you have lots yet to do.
I will try to entertain you better during
J. Deßarth Shorb itihen arose to place
in nomination as representative of
the 38th senatorial district Judge
Enoch Knight, of Pasadena, whom he
characterized as a gentleman of a retir
ing, rather than pushing, disposition.
and therefore not as well known to many
of the more recent residents of the
county. He was a gentleman of culti
vated tastes and intellect, and a conserv
ative gentleman. He had had a long
experience in the hall of the legislature
of his native state, Maine. He had made
a great impression here upon the minds
of the commercial men by the manner
in which he took the floor, at a celebrated
convention of the board of trade of the
Pacific Blope, after an unfortunate speech
by Capt. Marry, of San Francisco, and
in less than five minutes poured oil upon
the troubled waters and restored peace.
•'lf nominated ke will beat Carpenter by
two to one," said the speaker.
Col. J. J. Ayers in seconding the nom
ination of Judge Knight said that he
was a man of brains, power and integri
ty, and worthy of the respect of the con
vention, and the place on the ticket it
was proposed to give him.
L. T. House, ofjjtedondo Beach, also
seconded the nomination, which on mo
tion of Judge Guthrie, was made by ac
Col. J. J. Ayers and J. De Barth Shorb
were appointed by the chair as a special
committee to conduct Judge Knight to
the platform, and this pleasant duty
having been performed, Judge Enoch
Knight was formally introduced and ad
dressed the convention as follows:
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the
Convention : I never was so much sur
prised at myself in my "life as I was to
find myself upon this platform, and I
have had something to do with organi
zations of all sorts at various stages of
my life. But at present I am at peace
with all of my race, I am well employed,
and I don't want any public office. I am
in doubt as to whether or not to accept
this. Ido not affect flippancy ;so now,
gentlemen, I ask you to deal fairly with
me as I will with you. If you seriously
and cordially desire and urge that I co
operate with you, I won't decline this
nomination. (Loud and prolonged
cheering). Thank you. I feel that
though I don't want the posi
tion, I owe it as a duty
to you to do so. I will take it. (Cheers).
I will walk along the lines laid down for
me and will use every effort in my
power to further your interests. If the
miracle of election should come to me,
I assure you, as all men who know me
will testily to, that I have no individual
interest in any corporation, nor have I
one cent of stock in any, and shall there
fore always endeavor to do my duty to
the public trust.
Three hearty cheers were given for the
speaker as he left the platform.
George S. Patton again resigned the
chair and in a brilliant speech placed in
nomination as representative for the 76th
assembly district, the name of A. M.
Bragg of Compton. He eulogized him as
a farmer of incorruptible honesty, who
had grown gray in the service of the
Democratic party, and moved that he be
nominated by acclamation, which
motion carrie d unanimously.
A. M. Bragg then briefly addressed
the convention, promising to make a
buckboard campaign of his district, and
if elected, to do all in his power to bene
fit his constituents. His choice for state
senate was "Steve" White, [cheersj.
Col. J. J. Ayers then took the plat
form to place in nomination for repre
sentative of the 77th assembly district,
Gen. John R. Mathews, of Los Angeles,
which he did in an eloquent three minute
On motion of Judge Guthrie, the nom
ination of Gen. Mathews was made by
Gen. Mathews then addressed the
convention briefly, and accepted the
nomination from a sense of duty he owed
to the people of this city as well as the
party. He was not a politician, but a
merchant, and he could only promise
that if elected, his aim should be not
only to act for the Democracy, but for
the people, who, when he returned,
would find his head, heart and hands
clean and unsullied.
On motion of W. F. Heathman the
regular order of business was passed
and the nomination of supervisors was
reached. In order to allow the respec
tive districts to make their appoint
ments, however, a recess of 15 minutes
was had at this juncture, which an
nouncement was hailed with shouts of
At 3:45 o'clock the convention was
again called to order, and on motion of
Col. J. J. Ayers, it was resolved that in
order to expedite the business yet before
the convention, that the delegates from
the outside townships should send in
the names of their respective candidates
for the township offices to the secretary
of the county central committee, so that
after the nomination of supervisors they
could go home, and leave the city dele
gation to nominate its own officers.
The delegates from the first super
visoral district reported that they had
nominated W. T. Martin of Pomona;
from the third supervisoral district, T.
E. Rowan ; and from the fifth supervis
oral didtrict, S. I. Mayo.
These announcements were received
with loud applause, and on motion
they were unanimously ratified by the
Geo. S. Patton again resigned the
chair to Vice President John Bryson,
and before adjourning said he had one
very important matter to call to the
attention of the delegates. He strongly
advocated the election of John T.
Gaffey on the board of equalization,
claiming that unless he was elected, the
thirteen counties of Southern California
would be without representation on the
board. This, he said, was not a matter
of politics, but of business, and it
touched the pockets of every tax payer
in Southern California.
On motion of John W. Mitchell of
Cahuenga, the thanks of the convention
were extended to Mr. George S. Patton
for the manner in which he had pre
sided over the convention, and "three
cheers for Patton" were heartily given.
On motion of Judge Guthrie a vote of
thanks was tendered to the . vice-presi

the end of a ballot, to drop the name of

WILLETT'S TEXAS TRIP.
It May Be Stopped by a Writ Tele
graphed to San Bernardino.
As was reported in yesterday's Her
ald, [a couple of sheriff's officers on
Tuesday arrested Nathan Willett, near
Norwalk, for a murder alleged to have
been perpetrated by him in Texas in
1872. They turned him over to O. E.
Bexley, the sheriff of Lee county, Tex
as, at the Arcade depot, who departed
with him on his homeward journey in
the evening. By some means Willett's
friends became acquainted with his ar
rest, and the extraordinary manner in
which he was being railroaded out of the
state, and they also learned that Bexley
intended to leave Willett in the San Ber
nardino jail for safe keepinsr during the
whole of yesterday. In order to bring
him back within the jurisdiction of this
county, Mr. M. C. Hungerford, a friend
of Willett, sued out a petition for a writ
of habeas corpus yesterday afternoon, in
which he alleges" that Willett was un
lawfully restrained of his liberty at San
Bernardino by Bexley, and that the re
quisition from the governor of Texas,
under which he was delivered to the Lee
county sheriff, is not in due form. The
writ was granted by Judge Shaw at half
past four, and immediately telegraphed
to Sheriff Seymour of San Bernardino,
and made returnable today. It is bare
