Congressional convention for the Twenty
eighth district comprising the counties of

on the first and all others every county
standing by Its nominee It was expected
last night that today the Lewis county
delegates would break for Hunt but Con
gressman Knapp the candidate from that
county refused to release them
Mr Hunt Jefferson countys choice
charged the deadlock to the op position of
former Senator Elm R Brown and former
Forest Fish and GameCommisalonerD C
Middleton They are strongly against htm i
because his nomination would mean the
loss of the patronage they havo long con I
trolled The convention has adjourned
