The republican city-township con
vention assembled at Turner hall
Saturday nijjht. nominated a city
township ticket, knocked out Chair
man Collins, electing ex-Mavor Me
Conoehie iu his place,' and adjourned.
Chairman Collinscalled theconven
tion to order, am! never dreaming of
the fate in store for himself, seemed
in one of his happiest moods, politic
ally. He made his customary little
set speech, and then called" for a
chairman of the meeting. Delegate
Appeluist called for City Attorne"V J.
I- Haas, and before the g'cntlcnian'up
on whom the distinction had fallen
realized what had happened he was
up in front acknowledging the com.
Mr. Haas modestly acknow ledged
his gratitude at being called to so
responsible a post. He always con
sidered it an honor to attend a re
publican convention, and to be
called to preside over one he re
garded as an extremely high com pli
mcnt. lie cautioned the nomination
of proper canili.latcs such as would
be a credit to the act ions of t he even

ami he was, ,f course, duly eleete.l.
and invited by Mr. Haas to step for

The nomination of a committee on
credentials being the next in order,
William Atkinson's motion that
a committee of three be appointed,
was adopted, and the chair named
Messrs. Atkinson, Cramer and Ap
pclmist. Mr. Appel.piist called for the First
ward credentials, and K. U. McKown
jumped up and presented them. The
other wards were called for bv Mr.
Atkinson and Mr. Appehjuist "alter
nately, and formally submitted.
Then the committee retired for de

The report was agreeable to F. C.
Denkmann, who moved its continua

lCi-atl the Call.
The secretary read the call, an act
that was a little belated, but it went.
Nominations for the otliee of collector
were announved. Aid. Foss named
August ('. Peterson; Lawrence Kill I
put up Fred Hillier; Fred Appcl
fUist suggested John ). Freed:
David Sears mentioned J. L. Free
man: and Joshua Hassehjuist pro
posed Harry Wickmann.-
Mr. (Jest asked if it was proper to
second the nomination of any partic
ular candidate. Chairman Hass re
plied that it was not necessary, but
Mr. (iest got oil a speech seconding
the nomination of John O. Freed.
There were undertones of opposition
to the cx-eongressmau taking this
advantage of the convention, and the
chairman was admonished by several
near the frunt to shut ott speech
making, but he merely scowled, and
Mr. Ucst went on. He told his yarn,
and it was a lengthy one, setting
forth the superior virtues of his
choice, and as possessing all the sug
gestions of the chairman as to nam
ing good men for otliee.
The chairman called for a formal
ballot, but Delegate Appchjuist in
terrupted the chair to move that "it
be the unatiimous consent of this con
vention assembled, that Mr. Freed be
the nominee by consent." The mo
tion was ruled out of order, and then
Dob-gate (iest moved that the formal
ballot proceed. It carried, and Del
egate Fiebig suggested the appoint
ment of two tellers. Delegates Foss
and Atkinson were named, and not
withstanding the hitter's previous
part in the proceedings, the chair
man was admonished that he was
not a delegate. So Mr. Fiebig, the
mover of the motion, was extended
the courtesy of being placed on the
There was sonic more talk from
Delegate Appelquist and then the
ballot was taken. The result was
approved as follows: Freed, 29;
Hillier. 12; Peterson, 20: Freeman, 2;
necessary for a choice, 3.3. The sur
prising feature was that notwith
standing that Mr. Wicknian had been
duly placed before the convention bv
Mr. Hasselquist, he did not get a
vote not even Josh's. A second
formal ballot was necessary and it
resulted: Freed, 30: Hillier, 12;
Peterson, 19; Freeman, 3 still noth
ing for Wickman.
J. L. Freeman's name was with
drawn, and there was applause, par
ticularly in the Freed quarter, and
me convention went on with another
ballot With the following ""vote:
Freed, SO; Peterson, 20: Hillier, 14.
There still being no choice ami no
indications of weakening on the part
of any of the opposing candidates,
the convention took its medicine
again. The result was the same:
Freed, SO; Peterson, 20; Hillier, 14.
The necessity for another ballot
faced the convention and it was un
dertaken, Hillier having the key to
the situation. The outcome was:
Freed, 30; Peterson, IS; Hillier, 10.
The shameful treatment of Wickman
was still a glaring incident.
The next ballot gave Freed 29:
Peterson, 18; Hillier, 17. The con
vention prepared for another ballot,
and it resulted: Freed. 33; Hillier,
19; Peterson, 12. This insured
Nominations for the oflioc of asses

that he was not a delegate. Dele

Nominations for supervisors were
in order, and the names of William
F. llinck, H. C. Cleaveland, Charles
Oswald anil John Crubaugh were
placed before the convention. Mr.
Cleaveland withdrew his name and
seconded the nomination of John
Crubaugh, and the formal ballot gave:
Kinek, 30: Crubaugh, 11; Oswald,
15. Mr. Kinek was nominated. '
Nominations for assistant supervi
sors were placed before the conven
tion as follows: (icorge K. ISailev.

P. Quavle, William. (iahagen, Charles
Delegate Denkmann moved that a
formal ballot be taken, .and that the
two highest receiving the majority
of votes cast be declared the nomi
nees. Delegate (iest protested. He
favored the nomination by separate
ballot as the quickest way of dispos
ing of the matter. A rising vote was
necessary, and Delegate Denkmann
ruled the roost. Then there was a
lively little skirmish in which Dele
gate Denkmann ran over among the
First and Second ward delegations
and fixed up a scheme with 'IVmey"
Johnson with the result as shown Lv
the ballot: Ojiaylc, 49: (iahagen, 49:

Chairman of the Township Committer.
The nomination of a chairman be
ing next in order, S. J. Collins was
proposed by Delegate Denkmann and
a motion was made and seconded
that the nomination be made by ac
clamation. Just before the motion
was put. however. Delegate Guthrie
arose and proposed William McCono
ehie. Collins was thunderstruck.
A ballot was necessary, and if Col
lins was thunderstruck at the oppo
sition that cropped out iu the men
tion of McConoehie's name, he
was shocked w hen the result of the
ballot was announced: Collins, 29:
MeConoehie, 31. The A. P. A. inllu

The incident was another instance
of the ingratitude of the ex-mayor.
During his last campaign a year ago
he had no more faithful" worker
than Chairman Collins, of the repub
lican city-township committee, who
devoted himself faithfully to his
cause and even went so far as to put
up money out of his ow n pocket in
McConoehie's cause. He was repaid
Saturday night, when, after the con
vention adjourned. MeConoehie went
about shaking hands with all the del
egates and crowing and rejoicing
in his victory over Collins.
