CIT1' DAK ITS.. WBIjIJEH,. BIG STONE CITY, DAK., FRIDAY, OCT. 10, 1884. Tl»c Aberdeen Couveiitlon. Th seventh legislative conven tion held at Aberdeen on the 24th inst, was a very harmonious affair and its results generally satisfactory to the district. At the head of this page we give the nominees and we ean vouch for the capability of every one of them Thcv are men qualified by their natur al ability, learning and experience to represent this large district which pos sesses such varied interests and such an intelligent and enterprising people, We doubt if six men could have been selected who would better meet and provide.for the wants of the people they are to represent in our next leg islature and at the same time com mand such universal support than the gentlemen nominated. The News will support the ticket and we believe we are safe in saying that every re publican paper In the district will do the same. There certainly can be no reason why they should not,. But sev en names were presented to th con vention six of them are on the ncket, the seventh a Deuel county man was defeated. The Codington county del egation did not present the name of any one from their county notwith standing they were instructed to pre sent the name of and support \V. R. Thomas of this eity. So generally uhpopnlar throughout the district was this man that no induce ment, not excepting money, could swerve the determination of sufficient delegates to give him the nomina tion. The Grant, Day, and extreme west ern counties went so far as to almost insist on the Codington delegation se lecting some other man from their county whom thou- people would like to honor, that their might not go un provided for, but they unwisely and imprudently said, "no," and the other delegations wisely and prudently said, "then go without representation, the dignity of the district dictates our course and hence the result. If any oi the people of Codingtong county feel agrieved at not getting a repre sentative they can lay the blame no where but at the door of the county's delegates, who because they could not get an unlit man would not consent to be represented by a tit one. The les son taught us is a good one and timely, too. and we hope it will not be soon forgotten by those who feel the re buke most keenly. We were present at the convention and conversed freely with the nomi nees on the result of the same, and the position Codington county was neces sarilly placed in and we were assured by them that under the circumstances they were, in honor, bound to be in dulgent with our county and would do all in their power for our interests. We believe they were sincere, and we shall support the full ticket with all confidence for the future.— Water town, Dakota News. At the head of our column will be seen the nominees for the legislature from our district who were put in the field by the Aberdeen convention held the 24th ultimo. We are personally acquainted with all except Mr. De Woody and many of his warmest sup porters are favorably known to us. All are honorable, conscientious and capable, men, who have had long experience and from their several call ings are especially qualified to ably represent every branch oi industry in our Territory No better selection could have been made. They repre sent the farmer, the lawyer, the doc tor, and the business man AVe will have more to say of them in the near future.—Gary Inter-State. A Plan or Division, There is. near the forty-sixth paral lel. a great deal of opposition to divi sion on that line. They prefer to di vide on the Missouri river. The Jim River Journal, in Dickey county, says: '•But division on the forty-sixth would cut eleven counties and disturb the boundaries of twice as many, twenty two counties. As an illustration, think of the trouble it would occasion in rearranging boundaries and relocat ing comity seats in Dickey and Brow n counties. Ellendale, our county seat won in hi! Dalso: lai wo,.
