The above ticket was placed in nom
ination by the democratic cpunty con
vention at Benson yesterday. The con
vention was in no sense a "proxy con
vention," it being one of the best at
tended ever held in the county. Dr.
Sweet, of Bisbee, called the meetirfir to
order, and in accordance with a vote pf
the convention, after he had been
unanimously chosen temporary chair
man and Judge Sanders, of Benson,
temporary BecretPry, appointed the

On Order of Business and Permanent
Organization W. C. Land, of Benson;
T. F. Chandler, of Bisbee; James
Rellly, of Tombstone; J. J. Riggs, of
Brannock, and Harry Raflerty, of Bis
bee. Then the first division came on the
question of voting for candidates by
secret ballot or viva voce. The latter
method was adopted by a vote 34 to 30.
An adjournment was then taken until 1
Upon reassembling, the above com
mittees reported, and their reports
were adopted without division. The
temporary organization was made per
manent, and the Chair was instructed
to appoint a committee of Ave on Plat
form and Resolutions. The committee
named was Charles Winston, of Bisbee;
Dr. R. A. Alton, of Willcox; P. J. Del-
ohantey, of Benson; BnnPneed, of Her
eford, and B. J. O'Reilly, of Naco.
The convention then proceeded to
tho choico of a county ticket.
For candidate for sheriff four men
were placed in nomination, Sidney R.
Mullen, A. V. Lewis and George B.
Wilcox of Bisbee, and M. C. Benton
of Tombstone. On the first ballot the
voto stood: Mullen 13, Lewis 27, Wil
cox 8 and Benton 18. Mr. Mullen was
then given permission to address the
convention, and in a neat speech with
drew from the contest In favor of Mr.
Lewis: The second ballot stood: Lewis
35, Wilcox 15. Benton 10, and Lewis
was declared the nomtneo.
E. W. Land and Benjamin Morgan
of Tombstone and O. Gibson were then
placed In nomination for district attor
ney. Tho ballot resulted as follows:
Land 30, Morgnn 10, Gibson 11, and
Lsnd wa declared elected.
M. D. Scribner'8 name was then pre
sented to the. convention for candidate
for treasurer and he was nominated by
Frank Hare and M. J. Brown were
nominated for county recorder, und the
convention selected Hare by a vote of
35 to 33.
Cyru R, Bostwick of Huachuca was
chosen by acclamation for candidate
for probate judge.
Then followed tho most tiresome part
of tho convention when the delegates
wore trying to decide which of the fol
lowing nominees to place In tho field
for county assessor: Walter Fife of St.
David, A. W. Howe of Bisbee, F. W
Heyne of Ruoker, A. Wentworth of
And other good speakers will address you. Come out
' everybody and hear good oratory and good music
Tombstone and Thomas Steole of Will
cox. Tho first ballot gave Fife 13, Howp
13, Heyne 18, Wentworth 15 and Steele
7. Mr. Steele then withdrew in favor1
of Mr. Wentworth, and the second
ballot resulted in giving Fife 13, Howe
14, Heyne 23 and Wentworth 17. Tho
Steele men were evidently going for
Heyne instead of Wentworth, as Mr.
Steele had requested. Third ballot
Fife gained at tho expense of Heyne.
Mr. Howe then withdrew, and the con
vention voted that after the succeeding
ballot that the lowest man be dropped
from the list. The fourth ballot re
sulted in giving Fife 21, Heyne 28 and
Wentworth 18. Wentworth's name
was then dropped, and there being now
only two candidates the convention
gavo the nomination to Fife by a vote
of 35 against 32 for Heyne.
E. A. Nichols of Willcox was chosen
by acclamation for candidate for Super
intendent of public schools.
Mr. Heyne declined the nomination
for county surveyor and Geo. C. Clark
of Bisbee was nominated by acclama
tion. The following named gentlemen were
placed in nomination - for supervisors:
P. J. Delehanty of Benson, A. H. Weln
of Rupsellville, B. F. Graham of Bis
bee, Richard Humphrey of Bisbeo,
Thomas R. York of West Huachuca
and J. H. McPherson of Tombstone.
It was agreed that the three receiving
the largest number of votes on the first
ballot should be declared the nominees
of the convention. Tho ballot resulted
as follows: Delehanty 38, Wein 27, Gra-1
ham 37, Humphrey 13, York 55 and
McPherson 26. York, Delehanty and
Graham were declared the party's can
didates. The convention was then up against
the hardest problem it had tj solvo,
the choosing of an acceptable candi
date for the territorial council. Con
siderable time was wasted in blind,
hopeless groping for something that
everybody knew was not within reach.
The delegates were by this time tired,
hungry and cross. Several available
men, including Packard, Rellly, Ro
mer, O'Reilly and Co, flatly refused
to serve. Several men whom the lead
era knew stood no earthly chance of
being elected stood willing. Among
them were Gibson of Willcox. Mike
Gray and Monmonler of Pearce. This
may be unfair to Monmonier, who wus
absent. Colonel Ben. Morgan of Tomb
stone was nominated, but declined
without thanks. Tho only opposition
to Henry Gray of Tombstone was the
belief that ho would decline the honor.
Finally, in desperation, the convention
decided to nominate him anyhow, and
as he was not present to decline at the
time it is hoped that he will lend tho
strength and popularity of his name to
the party ticket.
After hunting In vain for other
names, the ab 've mentioned candidates
for the lower house of the legislature
were put upon the ticket,, which was
After an intermission tho Hon. B. A.

The roport of the committee on plat
form was unanimously adopted.
The democratic party of Cochise
county, in convention assembled, in
dorse without qualification the plat
form and candidates of the Kansas City
convention, and sadly regrets that re
publican domination at the national
capital by withholding statehood from
Arizona, prevents us from recording
our votes for the same.
We denounce the republican doctrine
that territories have no rights under
the confitltutton, but can enjoy only
such liberties as congress may deem
'fconslstentwlth their welfare" to be
stow. We indorse the Hon. Marcus A.
Smith us the regular democratic nomi
nee for delegate to congress, and invite
all voters who have at heart the best
interests of Arizona to assist us in re
electing tho leading statesman of our
commonwealth to the office to which he
has been fain- nominated and which
he has so creditably filled.
We promise to do all in our power to
defeat tho republican scheme to cap
ture the territorial legislature, and
will endeavor to send a solid demo
cratic delegation from this county,
pledged to repeal tho law which com
pells a voter to pay his poll tux 'before

We favor an equitable aud just
assessment of tho taxable proporty
within the county, and believe that
more care in this direction would
place tho burdens of taxation where
they more justlylbelong.
We renew tho standing pledge of the
democratio partv to strict economy in'
tho various branches of government
and congratulate our citizens on tho
near approach of tho day when the old
indebtedness of the county shall be
paid off and the rate of taxation can bo '
reduced at least ono half.
The nominations wore all made unan-i
imous, resolutions of thauks were
adopted to tho Benson democrats for
their hospitable entertainment of the
convention, to tho A. & S. E. railroad
for half rates and Special train, and to
the officers of the convention. With
three cheers for Col. Bryan and for
Mark Smith, the convention adjourned,

Wilkesbarre, Oct. 11. Some fifty
strikers and their families In this re

union and are patiently waiting for It.
They have been supplied since the be
ginning of the week by the -local un
ions, but their number is increasing
daily and their condition Is growing
worse. Several hundred are expected
to be asking for food by next week, and
not many of the 15,o00 in this city will
be able to hold out until the end of the
month if the s'trike lasts tnat long.

With this first touch of the strike

ble dissatisfaction among the foreign
ers, in this city and neighborhood,
chiefly the Poles, Huns and Slavs. They
had been led to expect as much as 88

the reason why some of them joined
the union. They understood they would
get as much money while on strike as
they made while at work, or more.
Otherwise they would not have joined
Whther this dissatisfaction may lead
to an attempt on the part of some to

attempted resumption a number of men

might cause & great deal of trouble and
lead to some violence, and It is not.
likely they will attempt it.
