Tho chairman declaring the convention
ready to receive nominations for probate
judge, was suggestive that the time for real
business had arrived. In but a moment si
lence reigned supreme, and wide open eyes
indicated that something was expected to
"drap." Under such Circumstances Mr.
Roberts, of Ninuescah township, gained the
the floor and in a few well-chosen words pre
sented tho name of E. B. Jewett tho present
incumbent. J. R. Snively nominated W. T.
Buckner. He said that although Buckner
had not been in this county long he had
thoroughly convinced his many acquaint
ances that he could bo trusted and confidence
placed in him.
At tho close of his remarks Mr. Ford
stated that many of the candidates were
strangers to a number of the delegates who
were very anxious to see them so he suggest
ed that they be trotted upon tho stage for in
spection. This by no means had a silencing
effect ui the convention. Many of the can
didates about this time wore an "excuse me
please,' look which it was thought assisted in
nipping th'e suggestion which prevented it
from grow ing into a motion.
Farmer Doolittle seconded the nomination
of Jewett. After referring to the importance
of the office he proceeded to speak of the
rumor that he could not le elected if
nominated. As evidence that it was entirely
unfounded he referred to the election returns
of '82 and '84, when each time ho had run
ahead of the ticket over 2,000 votes. These
phenomena ho did not consider indicated
that Mr. Jewett would either be defeated or
bring up the tail end of the ticket.
The vote was then taken with the follow
Jewett ! 120
Mr. Jewett was declared nominated amid
the first triumphant cheer of the day. His
nomination being made unanimous ho was
called upon for a speech by hundreds of
"I am profoundly greatful to you,' he said
when a part of the noise had taken a leave of
absence. ''This is the sixth time I have asked
for favors and you have granted them. I
think this will bo the last time until I take a
little rest. I have all kindly feeling for my
opponent. He has treated me fairly. My
success is probably due to the fact that I am
better acquainted in the county.'
Mr. Buckner was then called, who said it
looktxl a little unkind to call upon a defeated
candidate. He said thero was a frinndly
feeling between him and his opponent, and
he intended to support the nominee heartily.
Messrs. Abraham Wight, Cr H Duliugand
E. B. Dunbar were placed m nomination for
clerk of district court. Their nominations
were not accompanied by auy long winded
speeches, and the vote was soon taken, which
resulted as follows:
Mr. Wright being called upon for a speech,
stated that it was his maiden effort and
hence the convention would not insist that
ho should entertain them but a short time.
Upon motion of Luling. this nomination
was made unanimous.
The chairman then announced that tha
next tiling in order was tha selection of a
candidate for county attorney.
This information by no means detracted
from the interest in the occasion. Some of
the Democrat in the gallery pricked up their
ears and their looks made the reporter think
of what one of their number said but an
hour before when he the Dem was hoping
the "boys would get into a row."
Mr. H. R. Watt in a few words nominated
J. M. Balderston.
Farmer Doolittle proposed the name of
G. W. C. Jones. He said he had known him
for fifteen years. His long acquaintance en- j
abled him to place him in nomination. He
said he had worked hard and long and no
one was more deserving of the honor.
Mr. J. D. Huston said: "Jones has the
ability to perform the duties of the office and
has always been loyal to the party. I can
assure you that he will support the
nominee if he is not nominated. He has in
tegrity, no man can gain-cay thai. He has
a big heart, a sound bead, and if placed on
our ticket will be elected." His speech was
followed with protracted applauso and
The vote was as follows:
Before the vote was counted, cries for
Jones went up from every portion of tho
house. The call for order by the chairman,
and his vigorous pounding upon the table for
a time had but little effect. Finally it weak
ened and tho official announcement was made
seemingly in a hurry, before the wave could
rebound. The news-, if it may so
bo called. gave a new impetus
to the boundless 1 enthusiasm. It
rang out loud-andlongana long and loud,
until verily, it did seem that the walls of the
building trembled. T-
Finally the successful candidate found
himself before the assembly. He tried in
vain for a moment to ,get the chairman to
hear him a distance of twelve or fif teea feet,
but the latter seeing what was wanted nod
ded assent, and then he turned to tho crowd
to await its pleasure. At last the noise sub
sided sufficiently for him to commence. "'I
thank you, gentleman of the convention,"
he said, "most heartily for this honor. I
am for the nominee."' This proved sufficient
caue for auother outburst of prolonged
cheers. "I have tried to treat my opponents
with fairness and I hope I have succeeded.
I again thank you for the nomination.
When he had finished someone called for
"three cheers for Jones.' Three good round
Republican cheers followed in regular
cadence. This seemed to render the enthusi
Mr. Balderston was then called. He slowly
stepped to the front in response. He stated
that ha had performed tho duties of the office
to the best of his ability. Ho was confident
that no one could say he had not done his
duty as county attorney. He assured the
convention that he would support the nom
Mr. Hatton being called appeared with a
speech that drew out several rounds of ap
plause. He said: I have not got a single
thing to kick about. Have known Mr. Jones
for years and he is as good a boy as God ever
made. You could not have selected a man
in the county except myself that I would
rather see have tho position. Cheers. He
will perform the duties of tho office to the
very best of his ability, and he has the ability
to do it well. It is useless for me to say I
support him. I will do all in my power to
help him and ho will be elected by a rousing
Mr. Morris, who had also appeared in the
balloting, was called. Ho said the support
he received was unsolicited by him, as he was
not a candidate. He had no fears
but th'e n"ien who voted for him
would vote for the nominee. Ho thought it
the duty of every delegate to vote for all tho
ticket. "The Democrats," he said "sjay they
can beat such and such a man, but I say
every man that is or will be placed on that
ticket will bo elected."' He was given a
hearty cheer for his good prophecy.
The fight for superintendent of public in
struction v. as next called. Mr. John V.
Koogle was soon upon his feet for the pur
pose of nominating Prof. D. S. Pence.
He said that the Professor had not been
here long but the many w ho were acquainted
with him were certain of his ability to do all
tha business connected with the office. He
had made his own way through this world
and merited tho position.
Mr. E. W. Phillips seconded the nomina
tion of Prof. Pence. Ho said he would visit
ever' school in the county iu less than twelve
J. R. Snively stated that lis had known
the professor for years and he would be glad
to vote for him.
A.B. Minnick nominated Prof. B D. Ham
mond tlu present incumbent. He said he
had performed the duties of the oflico well
and he deserved a second nomination.
J. D. Caldwell then gained the iloor and
stated that he ha 1 ma le arrangements with
Farmer Doolittle to place him before tho
convention, but tho many speeches of the
latter had about pumped him out of wind,
and as he was well supplied with that article
he would speak for himself. He declined to
have his name placed before the convention
and said ho did not draw off in favor of any
particular candidate. He told his friends to
vote for their choice and said he would wil
lingly support the nominee.
The following is tha vote:
Prof. Pence was 'declared by tke chair
nominated, and Prof. Hammond moved that
the nomination be made unanimous, which
carried with another good sized cheer.
Prof. Pence responded to the usual call for
the candidate speech in a fitting manner,
and Prof. Hammond took his defeat manly
and stated he would support the nomination.
This completed tha work for the county
convention. Everything passed off harmon
iously and not a single defeated candidate
made a "kick' with a howl that he would
not support tho ticket. After the conven
tion was over many were hoard say tlia per
sonnel could not have been better. All seem
ed to be delighted with the day's work and
confident that when the sun goes down on
the day of election, that victory will have
perched itelf upon the Republican banners.

representative in the S4th district convened on

THE LEWIS ACADEKY.
The Lewis Academy opens- its doors to pu
pil . f( r the first time tomorrow morning,
Monday, September 6, 15G. That it will
prove a success from the start there can be
no doubt. That it will attain a high stand
ing among the educational institutions of the
state we are fully persuaded. Cities no more
than individuals are the arbiters of their own
fortunes. Wichita never dreamed of being
anvthing eL-e than a commercial city, almost
spurnmr everything that did not tent! to sp-jr
on to that coal. But it now sms that Wich
ita i to be the educational center of the
state. There is no longer any doubt of it.
A city here and there boast? a Cmver-ity ora
College or an Academy or a fine system of pub
lic schools, bat within a short time Wichita
will bi boasting of all Xh&ri. The chancellor
of the state university tays oar public
schooU areuncrcellsd; our academy oins
to-morrow; tha wails of the university are
now going up, and the ground for the col
lege of the Kansas Reform chorea were se
cured near the city the pat e:k. So it will
bo seen that while Wichita ha tsx carelesa
of this great iatarest, whieh othir cities
have been stirring for, Wichita ia spite of
herself, becomes the Athen of her stale.
As for the Lewis Academy, It kae a great
friend in the Eaglz, a tricod wko not only I
ndorses the liberal qbb who foondad it bat
wko will note iU fatare progress wiA no
naU degree of prida.
