The Second Bold Crime in Five Years. Spring Lambs Eaten by Old Wolves. The Ring Brutally Slaughters Its Opponents. F. Kellner Nominated for Mayor by Less than a Majority of the Votes Cast. Since Johnnie Teare was held np in the Capitol saloon three or four years ago and two officers were stood up out side by the same unknown desperado no outrage of similar boldness was per petrated in Phoenix until last night, Allusion is made to the nomination of the Democratic licket last night. The firatdesperado got away safely but those of last night were caught in the act and will be punished about May 1. The gentlemen sacrificed by the gang are: For mayor, E. F. Kellner: for marshal, Andrew Thoman; for treas urer, C. B. Ming; for tax collector and assessor, John Hickey; for councilman from the second ward, H. H. McNeil for councilman from the fourth ward, J. D. Reed. The same old ring which had things in charge last year took them in charge again yesterday morning and the new and ambitious schemers who have been making all the preliminary noiee were routed and kept on the run. It is only another proof that finesse, skill and practice are better cards in the game of politics than a simple mis directed majority in the hands of gen tlemen who get rattled and forget things. It was really a parliamentary defeat or rather a parliamentary mas sacre. The convention assembled yesterday afternoon ot 2 o'clock. There were no indications at that time that a crime was going to be perpetrated. The anti Gazette crowd only intended to out maneuver the enemy but the enemy was all the time fixed to sandbag the antis. The Bandbag fell with bewilder ing and sickening effect. Even the Re publican spectators were indignant at the brutality of the act. The convention was called to order by Frank Baxter. C. B. Ming was made temporary chairman and D. H Burns temporary secretary. A com mittee on credentials consisting of a member from each ward was made up as follows : J. A. R. Irvine, John Bur ger, M. E. Hurley and A. E. Cobb. The following is the personnel of the committee on resolutions and order of business : H. H. McNeil, H. L. Chand- ler, A. Goldberg, Gus Clark, J. M. Kcliott. Loved Darkness Rather Than Light. Though the proceedings so far had occupied less than fifteen minutes, Delegate Beck moved a recess to 7 :30 in the evening. Delegate Irvine moved to amend by substituting 3 o'clock. The amendment was lost by an over whelming vote and it was noticeable that the ring didn't vote. It was ready to begin the slaughter at once or was willing to wait until night. Anything to please the victims. The antis, how ever, deeirei to tighten up and oil the new and untried machinery which thev had been oiling, tightening and other wise readjusting since last Saturday. So they adjourned. Under Cover of Night. On reconvening M. E. Hurley took the secretary's desk and the committee on credentials submitted its report. In the matter of proxies there had been a misunderstanding and the antis lost blood in the skirmish, frank Baxter by a majority of the committee was em powed to handle Frank Cox's proxy. Iwo members dissented on the ground that the proxy had been asked for and in the discussion which afterward took place Mr. Baxter presented a telegram from Mr. Cox directing him to cast his vote for E. F. Keller, whereupon there was an uproarious applause on the Kellner side and silence and gloom on the other. The committee had forgotten to recog nize D. P. Conroy but this little omis sion was corrected and Mr. Conroy was let in. The committee on resolutions only re ported on the order of business. A sin gle clanse of the report providing that all nominations should be by ballot and that successful candidates should receive a majority of all votes cast, is mentioned for a purpose which will appear later in the report. The convention was permanently or ganized by the election of Homer Mc Neil to the chair and J. M. Shott was made secretary, it is a fact not par ticularly significant but worth men tioning that honor was conferred on both theee officials at the instance of gentlemen who were opposed to them. How the Deed was Done. In a brief but pointed speech M. E. Hurley placed T. E. Dalton in nomina tion for mayor. In a rhetorical but somewhat non-explanatory address J. C. Kellum suggested the nomination of E. F. Kellner. for instance Mr. Kellum believed that the choice of Mr. Kellner for mavor would some how precipitate statehood and enfranchise some 75,000 men, women andchildren to say noth' ing of the Indian population of Arizona. He described in harrowing terms the condition of the territory under federal tyranny, a description construed to be a reflection upon the despot Cleveland and his satrap Governor Hughes. How Mr. Kellner s elevation was going to immediately make 7o,000 male voters out of 70,000 men, women and children the speaker hadn't time to explain. The ambitions of other possible can didates were squelched by a eudden closing of nominations and a ballot was ordered. Here frank Baxter with a frigid disregard for the order of busi ness proposed a roll call and a viva voce vote. A parliamentary squabble en sued, in the course of which objection was made to Mr. Baxter's proposal, on the ground that many of the delegates who were willing to knife either Kell ner or Dalton, preferred to throw the secrecy of the ballot about the opera tion. Thev thonght too much of the feelings of the candidates to stab them openly. An attempt to overturn the order of business by a two-thirds vote failed even of a majority. The first stroke of the sandbag missed the victim and the ballot proceeded. There were twenty-nine votes in the convention. Chairman McNeil held the proxy of Frank Fuqua with instruc tions to cast it for Kellner. This mat ter is of interest only by reason of the circumstance that Mr. McNeil let the proxv go to waste and the result was Kellner, 14 Dalton, 13. Another bal lot counted as a scattering vote from the fact that it bore the names of Kell ner, Burtis, Clark and other prominent and well known Democrats made twenty-eight. The Crowning Crime. The chairman properly called the re sult a dog-fall as no candidate had re ceived a majority and called attention to his "hold out" of Fuqua's proxy Mr. Baxter insisted on Kellner'a nom ination on the ground that he had re ceived more votes than anybody else allowing the scattering vote to be counted as such. He appealed from the decision of the chair and the mat ter was eo vaguely stated that several of the antis lost their bearings and wandered into the Gazette camp. The result of this vote was as follows: To sustain tbe chair, yes 12, no 16. Under parliamentary rules the appeal Insurance. lie fa York Life Insurance Company. BOONE mm, General Managers For Arizona. Rooms 5 and 6 Fleming Block. Money Loaned on Policies at 5 per cent per annum. Call and see-us if vou want To Place a Gilt-Edged Loan having failed to receive a two-thirds vote was lost. However the chair de clared itself unsustained and Mr. Kell ner nominated. No other violence was attempted du ring the evening. Joe Wilson, James Blankenship and Andy Thoman were nominated for marshal. The contest was hot but fair and regular. The first ballot stood Wilson 12, Blankenship 4, Thoman 13. The second Wilson 13. Blankenshiu 2 and Thoman 14. Blankenship with drew and Thoman was nominated on the third by 15 to 14; so close was the vote it took tbe last ballot to decide it. (J. B. Ming was nominated for treas urer without opposition and the choice of John Hickey for tax collector and assessor was equally uneventful. ' li. U. McNeil was nominated for councilman from tbe Second ward and J. D. Reed from the Fourth. Tne central committee was chosen as follows : Chairman, B. Heyman ; First Ward, J. A. R. Irvine : Second ward. H. L. Chandler ; Third ward. C. B. Ming : Fourth ward, A. E. Cobb. And thus was the steal consummated. Debating Society Election. At the second regular meeting of the Philomathean Debating society, held last evening, the following officer were elected: Grant G. Randal, president; P. W. Fleming, vice-president ; Robert Garnett, secretary; Charles Christy, treasurer. The question of the annexa tion of the Sandwich islands was de bated by Messrs. Wade Hulings and G. Kirkland for the affirmative and Messrs. G. Randal and P. W. Fleming for the negative. The judges rendered a decision in favor of the affirmative.
