NOMINATED ON FIRST BALLOT
Republican Judicial Convention Names Ticket for Second Dis
trict Only One Ballot Necessary to Select the Two
Judges District Attorney Next in Order.
. . '77 r-'
With the outlook bright for a warm
contest between Attorneys John C.
Davis, incumbent, A. G. Horn, David
Jensen and Ezra H. Robinson for the
district attorneyship and that a "dark
horse" would be sprung at a late mo
ment to clear the tangle, the Second
Judicial District convention was called
to order this morning at 11:35 o'clock
in Judge J. A. Howell's courtroom In
the Weber county courthouse by Hon.
J W. Thornley of Kaysvllle. The un
dercurrent of opinion concerning the
nominations for the two district judge
ships early in the day was not strong
and, while the nomination of Judge
Howell, Incumbent, seemed almost cer
tain, the friends of the other two can
didates, Judge N. J. Harris, incumbent,
and former Municipal .Judge W. H.
Reeder, Jr., seemed willing to have
their fight out on the floor of the
The delegates from the country dis
tricts of the three counties of the Sec
ond Judicial district, Weber, Morgan
and Davis, began to arrive in the city
on early trains and by automobiles,
but only a few reached the courthouse
before the hour set for the opening
of the convention. Asldo from the
purpose of the meeting at hand, the
delegates in conversation discussed
other phases of the political situation
in Utah with much interest.
At 9:30 o'clock, U?rJ county chair
man, John W. Thomley of Davis coun
ty, C. E. Condie of Morgan and Attor
ney C. R. Hollingsworth of Weber, met
in Mr. Hollingsworlh's office and
planned the preliminary convention
program. Mr. Condie was selected
temporary chairman; John Walsh of
Farmington, chaplain; Henry W.
Stahle of Bountiful, temporary secre
tary, and Mr. Thornley wns selected
to cnll the convention to order on
behalf of the committee.
Senator Thornley took the chair In
the convention hall at 11:35 o'clock,
called the delegates to order, intro
duced the temporary officers and tho
chaplain and then turned over tho
gavel to Temporary Chairman Condie.
In a brief address, Mr. Condie ex
pressed appreciation for the honor of
having been chosen to preside over
the preliminary deliberations of tho
convention and, speaking further,
"I consider it an honor at any time
to preside or sit in a Republican con
vention and hope I -may satisfactorily
acquit the duties of this office today.
We aro not here to consider platform
matters, but to nominate men and In
doing this we must consider men who
not only have the ability to perform
the duties that will devolve upon
them, but men whose honor is above
reproach. The Republicans of second
judicial district have been fortunate In
nominating men of this type in past
years and I am confident that the
delegates to this convention are fully
capable of selecting the right men to
send into the race this year."
Following the chairman's address,
Chaplain John Walsh offered prayer
and the convention call was then
read by Secretary Stahle. The first
motion of the session wns mado by
C. R, Hollingsworth and was for the
appointment by the chairman of two
committees, one on credentials and
one on permanent organization and or
der of business, with a representative
from each county on each committee.
The motion was passed and the com
mittcos were namod as follows:
Credentials B. N. Whitesido, Davis;
Carl Anderson, Weber; C. M. Croft,
Permanent organization and order
of business Joseph H. Robinson, Dav
is; John W. Bagley, Weber; Joseph
Anderson, Morgan. Later, it was
found that Delegate Croft was not
present and he wns replaced by George
Following the appointment of the
committees, John E. Bagloy moved for
an adournment until 2 p. m. The mo
tion was seconded and C. R. Hollings
.worth offered an amendmont that the
proposed recess be reduced to 15 min
utes, as it had been thought in this
way the business of the convention
could be concluded by 2 p. m. and ar
rangements had ben made for the dele
gates to be entertained at luncheon
at that hour by the successful candi
dates for nomination.
The amendment met with Instant
and warm opposition from several
quarters, some of the delegates appar.
ently scenting a plot to "railroad"
through a prepared slate. W. P. Ep
person of Kaysville, editor of the
Keekly Reflex, finally got tho floor
and declared that the city delegates
might be willing and prepared to car
ry through the business of the conven
tion in a hurry, but those from the
country wanted to take timo to pre
pare for the nominating.
The amendment was put by the
chairman and lost and the original mo
tion was then carried by . a maority
Harold Packer moved that the Og
den City delegates and those of We
ber county outside of the city, be
amalgamated Into two units for the
acceleration of business. This motion
was also viewed with momentary sus
plclon, several delegates stating that
It might be construed as taking away
the individuality of the delegates when
the time for voting arrived. Tho
suspicions were allayed by Mr. Pack
er, who declared there was no motive
of the kind in the motion and it was
An adjournment was then taken un
til 2 p. m. and during tho recess, the
two committees finished the work
asigned to them.
'At the opening of the afternoon
sessions of the convention, the tem
porary organization was made perma
nent and the delegates accepted as
elected without contest. The nomina
tions for district judge were then de
clared in order.
James A. Howell was nominated by
A. C. Ashton; N. J. Harris by John E.
Bagloy of Ogden, and William H.
Reeder by C. M. Croft of Morgan.
Several speeches were made sec-
that followed resulted in the nomina

MS B WAR
New Offensive Progressing
Satisfactorily Work of Big
Guns Result of Scientific
London, July 19, 1 p. m. "No we
are not really worried by the course
of the war" said General .Sir William
Robertson, chief of the imperial staff
at army headquarters today in an In
terview with The Associated Press.
"As to the new offensive a glance at
the map will tell the story of our pro
gress. And the happy expression of
our wounded soldiers from the front
reflects tho spirit of tho men. Do you
notice that all published photographs
show them smiling or laughing?"
The general himself smiled genially
ns ho spoke, nevertheless his manner
subtly conveyed his realization of the
fact that he was breaking the silence
he had maintained so rigidly at the
beginning of the war. Ho received tho
correspondent while seated at a table
in tho war office within a few feet of
the wire which permits him with the
aid of maps and tho constantly ar
riving messages to direct the moves
in the conflict in France.
The room is in keeping with the
character of the man. It Is furnish
ed with such Spartan simplicity that
the table, chairs and map rack are
the only articles of furniture. Broad
of shoulder and sturdy of form, Sir
William's personality tells of tremend
ous vigor that seems to belie bis 56
years and such quick mental percep
tion that one expects him to anticipate
tho trend of one's thoughL Seen in
street civilian dress, he might be
taken for an American railway presi
dent. Hearts Touched By Response.
"Our Jiearts wore touched -by -ihe
ready response of our fellow British- ,
ers from over seas on the outbreak of H
the war" the general continued. "If H
the manner In which these sturdy sons H
of Australia, New Zealand, South Afrl- WM
ca, Canada and our galalnt little New mW
Foundland came forward with their
thousands and surprised the enemy, H
their valor and gallantry in battle 1
wore a revelation to the world." H
The subject of general speculation
as to how long the war would last H
caused the general to shake his head H
and smile. jH
"That is a question touching hu- H
man nature which means dealing with H
a dubious proposition" he said. "None H
is wise in this," jH
Referring 'to the complimentary re- H
Terences by military experts to the
work of the big British guns and the H
use of cavalry in the offensive, Sir
William remarked: JH
Work of Big Guna. H
"The work of the guns interests us H
not only because of the organization H
required to produce them but because H
the careful training is necessary be- H
fore the gunners are proficient. Sci- jH
entifically accurate gunnery is requlr-
uu in huh war jjruuuuiy us uevur uu- vm

today at the state department.
Although press dispatches from
Mexico City havo announced the ap
polntment of Mexican members of a H
joint commission to undertake adjust
ment of difficulties between the two -countries,
it was stated officially at ,
the department that no final agree
ment as to the method of conducting
the negotiations had been reached. It
was explained, also, that if It should
be determined to make a joint com
mission, the American members couldi
not be headed by Henry P. Fletcher,
ambassador-designate to Mexico be- jH
cause Mr. Fletcher's official position jH
would prevent him from serving In IH
that capacity. H
When told about dispatches from
Mexico saying Special Agent Rodgers 'H
had informed the Carranza govern
ment that the United States troops in
Mexico gradually would be withdrawn, , mM
Mr. Polk said Mr. Rodgers had no au
thority to make any such statement
and that the policy of the American . BH
government remained unchanged.
