For Commissioner of Schools
A rinner: Charles H. Wlsner.
The republican state ticket takes well in
every section of Michigan.
The district school officers know the true
worth of Hudson Sheldon as school commis
sioner and will nearly all Rive him hearty
support for re-election.
The democrats of Shiawassee seem to be
in hard luck when they cannot find a candi
date for school commissioner who resides In
Shiawassee county. We are reliably in
formed that their candidate id a voter in
Brady township, Saginaw county, that he
voted there last fall and has since resided
there, being employed as a teacher.
Got. Rich on Wednesday tendered to
Mrs. Mary C. Spencer, of Lansing, the posl-
tlon of state librarian, to succeed Mrs. M.
C. Calhoun, who declined a re-appointment.
The Governor also appointed James A. Cra
zier, of Menominee, and Loomls K. Bishop,
of Grand Rapids, as members of the Soldiers'
Home board ; members board of control

Republican Judicial Convention.
The republicans of the seventh judicial
circuit held their convention in Owosso,
Wednesday. It was a lively affair too
once or twice on the democrat plan of con
ventions. The strife over the number of
delegates and the nomination caused every
delegate to fuel that he must be loyal to and
stand by his county to the end of the fight
The Genesee delegation with about 25
visitors arrived on the morning train, each
willing to concede anything Shiawassee
wanted In the future if they could only
name their man this time. The Shiawassee
delegates were for equal representation 19
delegates each and wanted a Shiawassee
man to head the ticket. The preliminary
- canvass was interesting, each trying to make
converts from the opposition.
Atone o'clock, S. F. Smith called the
convention to order and after reading tho
call asked Hon. F. II. Watson to act as
temporary chairman. F. P. Sayre, of Flush'
ing, wai elected temporary secretary.
The chair named as committee on creden
tials, G 11. Lyon aud L. W. Hannals, of
Shiawassee, J. J. Carton and Geo. E. Tay
lor, of Genesee; as a committee on perman
ent organization and order of business, Ira
T. Sayre and (J. W. Stuart, of Genesee, L.
W. liarnes ana li. uolby, of Shiawassee.
The committee on credentials were unable
to agree the Gjr.esee representatives re
porting in favor of seating 19 delegates fro-i
Genesee and 15 from Shiawassee, while the
Shiawassee men reported for equal repre
sentation. For four hours, with three recess
es, the convention struggled with the question
without coming to any solution. Mo' ions
to adopt both reports were voted down
by a tie vote. 19 to 19. During this time the
discussion, participated in by a good share
of the delegates, was warm and once or
twice not to the credit of the convention, to
put It mildly.
At the evening session the reports of the
committee on credentials were re-referred to
Hits committee. The committee after brief
consultation reported unanimously as fol
lows: 1st That there are nineteen delegates
present and entitled to scats in this conven
tion from Genesee county, whoso names are
contained in tho annexed credentials from
Genesee county which aro made a part of
2d. That Shiawassee county is entitled to
fifteen delegates In this convention, and
that the first fifteen delegates named In the
annexed credentials from Shiawassee county
are entitled to seats In this Convention as
provided in the call for this convention is
sued by tho district committee.
We would also recommend that In future
conventions In this Judicial Circuit while
it remains unchanged, each county bo en
titled to equal representation and also that
a resolution bo adopted by this Convention
that the nomination for Circuit Judge be
tween the counties shall alternate aud that
hereafter each county shall name the candi
In explanation it was said that Shiawassee
county In order to preserve harmony in the
district and to ensure the election of a re
pablican judge was willing to give up her
lalm for equal representation, a majority of
the delegates having so voted. This met
with vigorous opposition from a part of the
homo delegates who still claimed 19 dele
gates, but were willing to concede the nom
ination to Genesee. The report of the com
mittee however was adopted. The committee
on permanent organization reported th
temporary officers for permanent and the
usual order of business.
The convention then proceeded to a ballot,
resulting as follows: whole number of votes
oast 84, of which Charles H. Wisner, of
Flint, received 19, William M. Kilpatrlck,
Owosso, 15. Mr. Wisner was at once
declared the unanimous nominee.
A judicial committee consisting of S. S.
Miner and Odell Chapman, J. J. Carton
and 1. T. Sayre was appointed for the next
Messrs. Wisner and Kilpatrlck were
brought before the convention. Mr. Wisner
feelingly thanked the delegates for the nom
ination. Mr. Kilpotrlck thanked his friends
for the earnest support given him and
pledged earnest work for the success of

In our next Issue we shall have something to
