At the afternoon notion, the hall

yellow placards, designating the
different wards, were displayed
about the hall. As fast as delegates
arrived, they were called to the
front and had a white ribbon badge
pinned on them. These were dele-
ite badges ami were the compli-
.ments of the Axaiiahko Di:moii:at.
i large Amerieaii Hag was draped

It declarations were cheered am1
unanimously adopted ai the jieed
sentiments of the forty delegates.
It was moved and seconded that
nominating speeches be eonlined to
three minutes ami that each candi
date appear before the convention
before being voted upon.
Order of business was then taken
up and nominations declared in
order for the otlice of mayor. At
this juncture of proceedings Carl
(Hitch secured the recognition of
the chair and olfered a motion to
theelfeet that it require a two-thirds
vote of the delegates present to
nominate. Instantlv twentv dele
gates were on the tloor clamoring
for recognition. Matheny, Mitchell
Hyrne, Shaw and a dozen others
went on record in earnest, emphatic
speeches as unalterably opposed to
a measure that in their humble opin
ion was undemocratic. Speeches
supporting the motion were made
by Glitch, Shoeuheit, Iveer and
Liming. The delegates called for
the question, and upon a standing
vote the motion was lost by 18 to
17. P. P. Shaw then placed in
nomination W. II. Divers for may
or. Several seconding speeches
were made, and no other names com
ing before the delegates, nomina
tions were closed and Divers was
declared the unanimous choice of
the convention. In a short, but ap
propriate speech he thanked the
delegates for the honor and p'edged
tlieni hid untiring efforts to..urd
achieving victory lor the ticket.

Mr. llardcastle made an earnest
appeal to the delegates, asking them
to vote for the man who in their
judgment would add the most
streugth to the ticket. Mr. Shoen-
heit, in an eloquent preroation, de
scribed the manner in which Moms
led the Israelites out of Egypt and
ended by asking the support of the
convention for his candidacy. On
ballot, Hardcastle received 27 votes
and Shoeuheit 12.
Dole Hall was nominated for j ia

The convention wds an enthusi

though some delegatea lost their
choice for nominees, they accepted
the will of the majority as their
choice, and after adjourning they
all joined hands and pledged their
support to the ticket as named.
