seconded, but before a vote could
bo taken upon tho question, Mr.

amendments and Mr. S. O. Wood
also offered an amendment.
Mr. Hoffman Wood's amend
ments were discussed by him at
length and he bitterly attacked the
private meeting held by what he
termed the "so-called leaders" and
the agreement made between them.
Ho was answered by Judge E. C.

put the two Woods, above men

He told of his friendship for tho

tho contrary, was going about the

was heaped upon their heads with
out pity or mercy. At tho con
clusion of his remarks, Mr. W. H.
Wood withdrew his resolutions
with two exceptions. But Judge
O'Rear called for a division and
count on the original resolutions
as offered, with tho amendment
only of substituting Henry Botts
name in place of W. D. Johnson
and upon tho poll being taken the
O'Rear resolution won by 98 to 63.
The delegates selected, number
ing thirteen, were sent uninstruct
cd, but it is known that 8 are Taft
men, while five are for Roosevelt.
Much feeling was shown and it is
predicted here, as well as in other
counties, that many of the Roose
velt supporters, should Taft re
ceive tho nomination, will refuse
to support him. Never in years
have the Republican been so badly
