by large delegations. The meeting was
lield on the lawn of the Blue Sulphur Inn
und harmony and determination to win
characterized all its proceedings.
The meeting was called to order by Win.

the fact that all the counties in the district
ivere represented by uncontested delega?
tions, the usual course of effecting a tempo?
rary organization and appointment of
committees would be dispensed with, lie
placed in nomination for permanent chair

terms of the character and stand?
ing of Dr. Meade, and in the most
complimentary terms of the gentle?

intelligence and loyalty to party. At the
conclusion of Mr. Dickenson's speech,
Tazewell county was called and Col. J. S.
Browning came forward and in the name of
the county seconded the nomination of Dr.
Meade, pledging him the united support
of Tazewell Republicans. There being no
other names before the convention, on
motion of Wm. C. Pendleton, Dr. Meade
was nominated by acclamation. In re?
sponse to calls the nominee came to the
front and in a most graceful manner ac?
cepted the honor that had been conferred
upon him. He promised to make a
thorough canvass of the district, and an?
nounced his willingness to meet his oppo?

Back From California.
Col. A. J. May, Mrs. May and .Mr. Ed
Spotts got back from their trip to Califor?
nia last week. They had been gone in all
five weeks. The Colonel has been very
much benefited in health and enjoyed the
trip considerably,not withstanding the hot
weather that prevailed during the entire
journey. He had been in California before,
having spent about three years in the
mining camps, in 1851-2-3. The Col. had
been anxious and curious to know what
changes had taken pjgge in those localities
where he had spent three years of his early
life. Fie went to Sacramento City where
he spent a few days. Then he went up
Sacramento Valley 150 miles to Reading
and from there visited Sbaster City and
other places where he had been and mined
in the fifties. Change had taken place
in everything, except the mountains and
streams, to such an extent as to almost
make the country unrecognizable by him.
.Mining was still going on by a few while
men and Chinamen, the old fashioned
methods being used, with picks, pans,
rockers, sluices and l^ong Toms. The
country had been dug up and over so
oiten that it was all broken up and strange.
From Reading City the travelers went east
70 miles to Placerville, thence back to
Sacramento, and thence to southern part
of the State, Los Angeles, San Diego and
San Fe being visited in succession.
Tiie return trip was made over the
Southern Pacific Railroad, by way of El
Passo, Fort Worth, Kansas City and
Chicago. The party stopped in Indiana
and spent a week. Col. May tells us he
met only three persons in California he
had known before. They were W. T.
Boltimore, Robert J. Smith and Peris J.
Layne. The last named gentlemen is a
nephew of Col. May. The other two are
natjyes of Tazewell County. Mr. Smith is
a first cousin of the editor of the UgPUB
While Col. May was greatly impressed
with the Pacific coast and the great West
he has evidently concluded that Tazewell
county is ae good a place to live as can be
found on tlve continent and no mountain
is asibeauliiXasRich Mountain. He is also
impressed with the idea that our town
needs stirring up and the awakening of a
more progressive spirit among its citizens.
