TODD EIGHT ;
(Continued From First Page.)
the fammi? Brauei-TodiI affair, Bruner
hud been snowed under und was well nigh
burled out of sight,
Dut tho matter was considered never?
theless nnd upon motion ol the. H.niisr
contingent. Tlie members of the commit?
tee weto permutivi for ? whllo to linger
a letter from State Commlltconian Patton, ?
who declared llully that Todd had agreed
t? atildo by the decision of,the State Com- j
mlttce and that nothing short of a'bond J
with security could bo more bind ng than
the agreement Todd made l>ofore tl.o
Contrai Committee. Then Mr.'Meyer got |
lib and culled for nn executive session lor
thn consideration of the troubles before j
tlio County Committee. The Committee
thereupon arranged Itself In executive j
ItesultB wero announced about an hour I
later. Mr. Moyer had presented a serles '
of resolutions, embodying n statement jf :
the ptirty laws, providing for right of i
appeal jo the Sin to. Committee, and there?
fore declaring tho County Committee to j
bo amenable to such regulations. Tho
committee was thereforo to recognize
. Biauor as tho party nominee, These re- I
solutions were hustled aside and a sub- I
etllute was offered by Mr. Ituifln and
adopted, Under this substitute tho Coun? |
ty Cornmltteo of Henrico, by a vole of !
eight to five, reiterated Its denial of tho
right of tbe State Committee to Inter?
fere and pledged Its support to- Walter J.
Todd, the Democratic nominee for tho
oflico of trof-suier. The committee short?
ly thereafter declared Itself a/ljourned.
A few minutes later four of tbo (ivo
men composing the minority met nnd Is?
sued a paper. In It they declared their
allegiance to the Stato Committee and
pledged tho'r support to William H.
Brauer, the Democratic nominee for tho
ottico of treasurer. Then they, too, ad
journod. They have placed themselves in
direct conlllct with the remainder of Hie
committee nnd will probably all resign
next week. This Is about the only course
now left oper. to them. The four men who
thus split off from the others are Messrs.
Edward L. Ryan, of Sliumaker's Pre?
cinct; F.. S. Kclhim, of Hardln'a Shop;
T/iuls F. Meyer, of Jones; and C. H.
Graves, of Seven Pines.
I o h W? I Run.
The long awaited session of the new
committee, therefore, results In nothing,
except a more grievous split In the party
thnn ever. There are still two candidates
ir th*? field, and both claim the party
nomination; tlie State Cornmltt?*e has
heen defied again. All of this happened
Mr. Todd Is now preparing for a big
fight to the end. He has for a second
time secured the ondorsonv-nt of the
County Committee, He and Mr. Heckler,
who will probably be his deputy, If !??
is elected will s:tump the county. The
campaign will be as hot as -re and Todd
will be In the th'ck of It.
Mr. Brauer annourires that he will
appear as the Democratic nominee. He
has received the unanimous endorsement
of the. State Committee and the endorse?
ment of a portion of tho county com?
mittee. He considers that he Is the nomi?
nee,-and thnt anybody else Is an Inter?
loper. He will make a strong fight and
expect? to win out. When the proper
time comes he will probably make some
movement against the county committee.
Mnjor Hands, Mr.Brauer's counsel, said
yesterday tint tbey would contest the ad?
mittance of the Henrico Committee to the
next State Democratic Convention. He
hold? that the committee has placed
Itself outside of the pale of the party.
;?. .?'. S-ssion of th? C mm'tte'-.
Things were decided a-bustlo around
the courthouse when the hour of noon
graduali*.? wore around. The bluster of
the weather on the outside drew most
nf those present to the interior, and the
corridor wns full of people gathered In
knots discussing the situation. Mr.
Brauer was present with his attorney,
Mr. W. II. Sands, and many of Ill's fol?
lowers. The other side was also well
represented. Mr. Todd and Mr. Hechler
wero both there, with a large party of
their, friends. In this party .was also
Mr. St. G'orge Coalter, counsel for Mr.
Toild. Apart from these, there wero sev?
eral others not avowedly representative
of either -side.
There was every evidence of th? very
liveliest Interest In everything that was
to occur, ond that did occur. The little
room In which the committee usually
sits was packed to suffocation when tho
session began, and things finally grew
so bad that adjournment was made to
the large room of the County Court,
where committee and crowd could dis?
pose themselves more comfortably.
B-auer Snowed Under.
The meeting was called to order about
12:15 o'clock by Chairman Rullin. who
was made temporary chairman of tho new
committee. Tho atmosphere was already
beginning to tell of a Todd victory and a
After some parliamentary confusion the
committee took up the consideration of
the credentials of Mr. A. L. Cornwall,
elected from Town Hall, but now a resi
dent of Carter's. Mr. Cornwall was a
Brauer man and an effort was mado by
the Brauer wing to soat him. It failed,
and there and then was given the first In?
dication of a split In the committee, the
majority side being for Todd. By a voto of
five to four a seat on the committee was
refused to Mr. Cornwall because he was
not now a resident of the precinct from
which he' was elected.
The. election of a permanent chairman
gave a still more pronounced Indication

of bow the tide-waa flowing. Mr. Thomas i
C. P.ululi was placed In nomination and
at onco received the support of tbe Todd
contingent. On the other side, Mr. E. L.
Ryan was offered for the position. The
ballot was taken and resulted in the elec?
tion of Mr. Ruffln by a n-ote of bIx to
four. The Todd wing had gained one
man. There was no fight mado over the
other two offices. Mr. Sidney O'Bannon
was unanimously elected secretary, and
Mr. 0. N. Nuckols was In the same man?
ner chosen for the otllco of treasurer.
The question of filling the vacancies on
the committee next arose, Mr. John A.
Archer, elected from Carter's, sent in
his resignation, and the Brauer wing
promptly nominated Mr. James N. Eaues
for the position. Mr. R. M. Pllcher was
placed in nomination by the Todd side.
The vote resulted Pllcher seven, Eanos
four, and Mr. Pllcher was seated. This
gave the Todd side eight men to Brauer's
four, and the committee promptly lined
up In IhiB manner on the next question.
Westhampton had failed to elect, and
lt was up to the committee to choose a
man. Two men were nominated, Mr.
M. T. Thompson (Todd), and Mr. W.
J. Pepper (Brauer), Thompson wtm elected
by a vote of eight to four. Town Hall
was still ?I'acant. Mr. R. T. Wilson was
elected later m the day without oppo?
sition. He was not present and his vote,
therefore, cut no figure.
Aftei organization this committee,
therefore, stood with the following mem?
bers In their seats: T. C. Ruffln, Sldnoy
O'Bannon, O. N. Nuckols, L. M. Michaels,
Thomas F. Baglcy, J. ? .Anglo, Joseph
A. Johnston, R. M. Pllchor, M. J. Thomp?
son, E. L. Ryan, Louis F. Myer, C. H.
Graves and E. S. Kellam. Of this number
the four livst named were, at this stage,
tho representatives of the Brauer in?
terests. The cornmltteo stood nino for
Todd and four for Brauor.
Ex cut ve Session.
Upon motion of Mr. Meyer tho commit?
tee then went Into executive session tor
a consideration of the trensurcrshlp mat?
ter. Mr. Meyer referred to tho fact that
there were two candidates for tho otile?,
each claiming the party nomination, and
declared that It was up to the now com?
mittee to decido between them. Ho in?
cidentally remarked that he had been
prosent at the sessions of the Stato Com?
mittee and that all the disputante, In?
cluding I-lcchlcr and Todd, had agreed lo
abide by the decision of that body.
The commit too thereupon retired for
about three-quarters of an hour, what
It did In execuli'i'o session had to bo ob?
tained later as best It could from con?
versation with members. Thero was no
elaborate discussion of the points at Ir?
sue. Tlio Brnuer men were Whipped out '
and they realized It, and kept quiet so tar
a? talking was concerned. The first thing
done was the offering by Mr. Moyer of !
the following resolutions;
"Resolved, That we, the Democratic I
Executive Committoe of the county of !
Henrlco, at our first meeting held since
our election on September 3. 1903. hereny
reatllrm an allegiance to tho principles
and platform of the Democratic party
and the action of all times of Its duly
"Whereas, undor tho Stale Democratic
platform adopted at thu Norfolk Conven?
tion. May 3, 1900. It was decided thai the
Stale Democratic Committee 'may decide
all questions at Issue which may arHo
in election districts,' and ?.
"Whoreas, tho State Domocratlo Com?
mittee In August, IPQli Rt Norfulk, re
'illlrmed snld platform und directed tne
Stato Democratic Comniltteo to adopt
rules and regulations governing tho party
und Its local committees, city and county,
"Whereas, the State Democratic Com
mittiio adopted a I'lllo us follows: 'County
and City Committees shull have the direc?
tion and r?gulation Qf pugnarles held for
the nomination of candidates for the
House of Delegates, county and city
Omcersj, respecth-ely, and decide contest
faubject to the ?right of appeal to the
State Central Committee, and
'?Whereas, the State Central Committee,
acting ln accordance with thes? several
plans and regulations, have unanimously
deeded the appeal of Mr. William H.
Brauer, and declared that he is the regu?
lar Democratic nominee for treasurer for
the county of Henrico.
"Therefore, be It, Resolved, That as in
duty bound, we bow to this decision as
being mado oy the duly constituted au?
thority of the Democratic party of this
State, and we request all Democrats to
support tho said William H. Brauer ai
the Democratic nominee."
A substitute was promptly offered, and
the Meyer resolution as promptly sank
out of sight, The substitute was prepared
by Mr. Ruflln himself. It Is as follows:
"Resolved, That lt is the sense of this
ccmmlttee that the State Central Com?
mittee had no right to award the certifi?
cate of nomination for treasurer to Wil?
liam H. Brauer, as that right was only
within the province of the County Com?
mittee, acting under and by virtue of a
statute passed by the Legislature, and
any error committed under this statute
can ho referrable to no power other than
the courts; and tve further express the
bUlef that the State .Committee .stretched
Us Jurisdiction in' giving Mr. Brauer tho
nomination, and ln doing so the State
Committee alone must be held responsible
foi the fact ??li?t the people of Henrico
have two candidates before them, both
claiming the nomination.
"Be It further resolved. That this com?
mittee pledges Its support to Mr. W. J.
Todd, the nominee, holding tho certificate
ur.dor authority of the, County Commit?
The substitute was adopted. Tho com?
mittee lined up pretty much as it had '
done all day, with the single exception
of Bagley, who came over to the Brauer
side for the time being. The vote was by
secret ballot, but it was about as fol?
For_the substitute: Angle, Nuckols, Pll?
cher, Johnston, Thompson, Michaels, Ruf?
Against It: Kellam, Ryan, Meyer,
Action of the Minority.
As soon as the committee adjourned,
which it did Immediately after adopting
tho Ruffln paper, the Brauer members j
held a meeting. Thove were Tour of them
present?Ryan. Kellam, Meyer and
Graves. Thero was some suggestion that
they would probably withdraw from the
committee, but nothing of the sort hap?
pened. A paper was drawn up and signed
by the four gentlemen. It reads as fol?
"We, tho undersigned, duly elected mem?
bers of the Democratic Committee of
Henrico county, desire to malto this state?
We deeply deplore tho action of the
Henrico County Committee In refusing to
recognize Mr. Wm. H. Brauer as the nom?
inee of the Democratic party for county
treasurer, after Democratic State Central
Committee, the highest authority ln the
party, had heard the appeal In the ?rauer
Hechler-Todd contest, and declared Mr.
Wm. H. Brauer the nominee of the party.
The Democratic party that created the
County Committee and tho State Com?
mittee, gnvo to tho County Cornmltteo
the right to hear contests, but gave to
the State Committee the right to hear
appeals from the decision of the County
Committee in such contests. The parties
to this contest acted In accordance with
these laws of the Democratic party, and
not only are the parties bound by the de?
cision of the State Committee, but every
Democrat Is also bound thereby. We are
therefore proud to say that our course
is clear, and wo hereby declare our pur?
pose to support Mr. Wm. H. Brauer as
the nominee of our party, and, thus carry
out ou allegiance to tho Democratic party
and fallili tho oath we took to support
tho Democratic nominees, whon we voted
ln the last primary.

Mr. Pa't-jii*.- L tie,.
One of the most Interesting features
of the day was the production of a
pretty warm letter from Mr. Patton, of
Charlottesvllle, a member of the State
Committoe, who offered tho resoluti'on
over which thero has been so much dis?
cussion. The members of the committ'je
were permitted to see this lettor. It
was addressed to Mr. William H. Sands,
counsel for Mr. Brauer. It reads as
University of Vlrglnln,
Charlottesvllle. Va., Oct 0, 1003.
Dear Mr. Sands,?The report of The
Tlmos-Dlspatch of the Brauer-Todd
Hechler matter Is entirely accurate, ex?
cept for a typographical error, the omis?
sion of "If" after "that" In tho first Uno
of the resolution.
I had never seen any of the parties to
the Henrico affair before theft- appear?
ance in the State Committee. I had no
personal Interest In tho matter, but I
did become deeply concerned as a party
man. Tho committee heard the attorneys
for both sides with perfect patience and
courtesy, and for nearly two hours It
sought ground on which all concerned
could stand with Justice to the party.
Juilgo Watknis stated clearly that If
Brauer, Todd and Hechler made their
appearance, as thoy would do If they par?
ticipated, they would bo bound by tho
committee's decision. The committee was
as evidently In sympathy with this view
as If It had affirmed It by resolution.
When I proposed the resolution which
put a stop to fencing, Mr. Fulton, ono
of tho attorneys opposing Brauer, nodded
to me, which I took to mean that he
concurred. Thereafter the matter was
taken up on its merits, and Brauer,
Todd and Hechler appeared by counsel.
I do not seo how anything short of a
bond with security could bo more bind?
ing. Yours truly,
(Signed), ,. JOHN S. PATTON.
