: v1r. 'rucker was called upon for
a speech and thanked the conven-
tion and at times was compelled
to pause and wait until the applause -
plause had subsided.
At this point a motion was
made to proceed with the nomi-
nation of a county 'tic1wt. ' This
brought forth considerable discussion -
.
cussion , some preferring to'host- :
pone the nominations until a later
date. A viva voce vote was taken"
showing the sentiment of the
convention to be overwhelming-I"
in favor of proceeding with the
nomina tions.
This point having been estab-
lished the convention proceeded
with the nomination of three cah-
didates for the legislature. The
following names were brought
before the convention : .
R. E. Grinstead of Salem ; Geo.
Smith of Grant ; , V. H Hogrefe
of West Muddy and Cass Jones of
l ulo. It was moved and seconded -
ed that an informal ballot be tak-
en , the three receiving the highest -
est number of votes to be declared
the nominees. The motion pre-
vailed and the roll was called the
ballot resulting as follows :
Grinstead 157 ; Smith , 184 ; Ho-
grefe , 1.93 ; Jones , 151. Hogrefe
Smith and Grinstead having received -
ceived the highest numb of
votes were declared the nominees.
Each appeared before the conven-
tion aim niaifc a brief address.
A. R. Kcim introduced the following -
lowing resolution which was
adopted :
Resolved , 'I'hat the three members
of thc legislature from this county and
the state senator from this district be
and they arc hereby instructed to vote
for Hon. E. J. Burlctt for United
States scnator.
w. 1-1. Morrow vf East Muddy
was made the candidate for coun-
ty attorney by acclamation. He
.
.
expressed his appreciation in a
neat and very clever speech.
C. P. Reiivis called the atten-
tion of the convention to the fact
that A. R. Keim was a candidate
for state auditor and Fred Miner
a candidate secretary of state and
asked that the roll be called anl
that the delegations express their
preference. Mr.leim : hastily secured -
cured the floor and declared that
he was not a candidate.
A motion was then made that
11.1'tLiller be allowed to select
the delegation to the state con-
vcntion.tIre Keil11 opposed this
motion vitiorously and offered a
substitute motion to the effect
that the delegation be selected in
the usual manner and that they
be 11I1im tructe < 1. 'This drew forth
a general debate atd Mr. i ( cim
finally agreed to amend his sub-
stitute motion so as to allow the
delegates to be simply instructed
for : Mr. Miller. The substitute
motion was lost and the original
question was called for. The
motion was stated and the con-
vention expressed its willingness
that Mr. Miller should select the
delegation by tumultuous applause -
plause and prolonged cheering.
W. E. Dorring-ton was called
to the chair while J. R. Cain , jr
read the following resolution and
moved the adoption thereof :

Central committc has recommended
