Session Until Midnight.
S1LYER MEN TAKE TO THE WOODS
Tbo Defeat of Ulrlch, One of the Leaders of
the silver Junta, la Very Signifi
cant It Sounds the Death-Knell
of Their Dogma In Sotmyl
Pottavllle, July It It was midnight when
the Democratic county convention adjourned,
having completed the following ticket :
Goorgo J. Wadllngor, Pottsvlllo.
P. McLaughlin, Pottsvlllo.
CO UN TV TREASURER.
J. Al. Dcpow, Delano.
A. Carey, Butler township.
CLERK OF TUB C0CKT8.
T. J. lliggins, Shonandoah.
Joseph II. Nichter, Pottsvlllo.
Charles L. Adam, Mahanoy City.
Qeorgo Opio, Fralley township.
F. J, llronnan, Shenandoah.
Hoary Beckor, Tamaqna.
The closing scenes of tho convention were
n marked contrast to the orderly manner in
which the proceedings wero conducted
previous to tho nomination of Nichter. Tho
latter had his "heelers" in different parts of
tho convention, and voted at each and every
opportunity. John Curran, an opponent of
Nich tor's and a friend of Bressler, stood up In
tho convention, and frequently protested
against such hlgh-haudcd business in tho at
tempt to count out bis favorite The chair
man repeatedly called for tko polico, and
finally tho actions of tho Nichter boomers
became so opculy offensive to all fair play
that Chairman Mulholland said: "Gentle
men, nominations do not always moau elec
tion, and conventions of this kind bring on
disastorto the party. Give all candidates
fair play." Two or throe of theso "repeaters"
wero ejected from tho hall, whilo others
crowded in tho hack of tho hall and voted.
Theso men were not delegates. T. J.
Mullahoy withdrew from tho contest,
because of tho nomination of llig
gins, and overybody thought then that
tho delegates would strengthen the ticket by
the nomination of Miller, but; the Nichtor-
Ilfgglns combination won out, as follows:
Nichtor. 7.1011; Dressier, 1,801; Portz, 2331;
