When Tem porary Chairman Herrick called the Republican stats convention to order there was a general anticipation of a warm session. Although the question of state executive chairmanship had been settled at Tuesday night's meet ing of the new state coniral enmmit-1 tee, the anti-Dick forces were not en tirely ready to admit detect, and a continuation of the contest on tha floor of the convention in some form was looked-for by delegates and spec tators. The action of the resolutions committee" at the night session was generally known, but it was unknown what form the expected surprise would take. The report of the committee on cre dentials was presented, developing a fight in Tuscarawas county, and an attempt was made to amend the com mittee's report by dividing the vote between the contestants. On rollcall the amendment carried and the report ys adopted. James Holcombe of Cuyahoga county-moved that "it be the sense of this convention that Senator Dick be re quested to decline to act'as the chair man of the state executive committee, and that he co-operate with the state central oommittee in the selection of a chairman thereof to manage the pending state . campaign." Congress man Barton immediately took the platform and spoke briefly but vigor ously In support of the motion. Mr. Burton-said: "Tuesday night, before the nomination of state officers, in violation, as I understand it, of every precedent in" every year, the 21 members of the Republican executive committee met and made a choice. Against rhat we protest. What we ask is that there be a vote here upon the floor of this convention. Shall Senator Dick be chairman of the Re publican state executive committee or not?" If the vote is in the affirma tive, I have to say that those who oppose It will acquiesce in that selec tion whatever our opinion may be as to the wisdom or unwisdom of it. We do that because we believe that tho majority should rule." Cries of the delegation for "Fora ler" brought the -senator to the front of the platform, and by unanimous consent the senator addressed the convention briefly, declaring that he "knew of no reason why a man who was good enough to be chairman for, ""William McKinley," and who "is ac knowledged to be one of the best chairmen ever known," should not be continued in that position. The con Tention was in turmoil as he conclud ed, and the chairman had difficulty In securing order. Finally Harry M. Daugherty, asso ciated with Burton in the anti-Dick contest, was recognized. He declared thre was "nothing personal in poli tics with me," and the convention was gain in a road of disorder. At last he said: "I am not here to pluck a feather from the honor of any man." lie declared himself ready to sign any agreement that he would never be a candidate for any eilcs. He recogniz ed the superior qualities of the chair man, but he maintained that under ex isting conditions a change was advis able. What Dick Said. Congressman Robert M. Xevin fol lowed in a strong "proter.t against the humiliation of a man who has serve-1 you so long an. so ably as Senator Dick.

They also conduct ed a spin wheel, at each corner lay ing cigars, which were given to the purchaser provided he was lucky tnough in the spinning of the wheel. A revenue man noticed the method of conducting the sale of the cigars and out of kindness and realizing that they were not familiar with the law, he no tified them to permit the cigars to re main in the box.
