A FALSEHOOD REFUTED.
In Saturday's issue of the Sioux City
Journal appeared the following as a special
telegram from Yankton, dated August 23d:
Some of the delegates and many citizens
of both parties declare that oh the last ba'.
lot lest night, at the close of the call of the
unties, Kidder had seventy two votes, two
nominate, and Colonel
wards was jugglery and fraui.
Kidder and not Bennett was really nomina
ted. Such is the talk, and there is much
feeling and deep indignation. No one
charges Judge Bennett with corruption or
wrong, but unless this last vote can be sat
isfactorily explained it is predicted that it
will be impossible to rally the republican
paity to his support.
The foregoing item of news stands as one
of the basest falsehoods which partisan mal
ice could inspire. There is not a possibility
of truth Within it and nothing upon which
to base the charge. Col. Parker mar have
said it, but if he did he gave utterance to
that which was utterly devoid of truth and
is culpable in the highest degree for permit
ting so unfounded an assertion to escape
his lips. The position he held as Chairman
of the convention gave weight 11 the re
mark, though Col Parker really knew no
inore about it than aiv other member of the
convention or of tlie crowd of spectators,
He kept no tally of the vote and was not
furnished with the result by the tellers or
We are told that Judge KidJer went
away from Yankton the morning after the
convention with the idea in his mind that
he had been nominated and fraudulently de
prived of the position. Ex Uov. John
Pennington is said to also hold thut opinion
and to have expressed himself freely upon
the •suVject. Had cither of these gentlemen
taken pains to examine the. tally sheets of
the secretary and tellers, three in number,
they would have quickly discovered that
the charge was so utterly without founda
tion that it could not for a moment be en
tertained by reasonable men. Fortunately
these papers have all' been preserved and
are open to the inspection of any person
who desires to further satisfy himself. They
Were found, with the other minutes of the
proceedings, where the secrtUry had thrown
them, thinking them -of no fuither value.
They were immediately passed over to Chief
Justice Shannon, who, assisted by R. J.
Gamble, carefully inspected their contents
and made a copy which remains in their
possession. They show that Judge Kidder
had upon the last ballot sixty votes, no
more and no less. As it required seventy
votes to nominate, it will be'seen that
Judge Kidder was ten votes short of at
taining a majority. We give in the follow'
ing table the last ballot entire, as it stood
at the iclose of the roll call. It is compiled
from the official tally sheet and will be cer
tilled to, if necessary, by the secretary, the
tellers, Judge Shannon and Mr. Gamble.

After the eighth formal ballot, which
gave the above result, waa called ,by conn
tie*, as shown, and before the teller* and
secretary bad an opportunity to make their
written repoit of the ballot to the chairman
ilalBgititff fnrr -IT1-— to
tbeir votes. The change. occurred
in the following otder:
.CMS county, three votes from Moody to
Bennett (four of It* seven votes having been
6riginally,cast for Bennett).
Yankton county, ten votes from Moody
Stutsman county, two votes from Louns
berry to Bennett.
Lake county, one vote from Moody to
Kidder (one of its two votes having been
originally cast for Kidder).
Pembina county, three votes from Kidder
Richland county, three votes from Kidder
Turner county, five votes from Moody to
to one for Bennett, three for Kidder and
the disposition of the fifth vote from Turner
county was not made, but which ever way
it bad been thrown would not have affected
Bon Homme county, six votes from Kid
der to Bennett.
The change of Bon Homme county's six
votes gave to Judge Bennett a majority of
five in the convention. E. A. Williams, of
Burleigh county, who had kept close track
of the changes, was the first to take advan
tage of Bennett's gain from sixty nine to
seventy-five by the change made by Bon
Homme county. He gained a recognition
from the chair and moved that Q. O. Ben
nett be declared the unanimous choice of
the convention. The motion was put and
carried with the greatest enthusiasm. This
was the first oppoitunity of the chair to
:ure the action of the convention on its
Section with the last
choice of the
delegate who had
throughout the prior proceedings.
For the purppse of showing how each
candidate stood after each change was made
we have constructed the following form. It

It will be seen from all these figures that at
no time did Judge Kidder have a sufficient
vote to nominate him. it .should also be
borne in mind that our figures are the result
of three men's work, all chosen by the con
vention for that duty and each making the
record independently of the other. Their
figures thus produced agree in every partic
ular and bad there been any necessity ior
announcing the result of the ballot the
figures we print are the ones which would
have been banded to the chairman and by
him given to the convention. We have
gone back through the record of previous
ballots and find that had all the votes given
to Judge Kidder during the entire conven
tion been cast at one time he would not
have had a msjority. In view of all these
solid facts we hope tha'. the efforts of a few
to bring odium upon the work of the con
vention will cease. They cannot contro
vert the evidence presented with any show
of success, for when they state that Judge
Kidder received more than sixty votes on
the last "ballot they are asserting that which
the figures disprove.

had got the right medicine at last. I could not

The Ulcer Is gone, and I am able to attend to

with good success. I always keep a bottle' of it
