Broken Slates and Busted
The Pumpkin Kollers Have
Things Their Own Way.
An Adjournment Taken Until This
B. N. Smith Nominated for Superior
Judge, Martin Aguirre for Sheriff, T.
H. Ward for County Clerk and Capt.
F. E. Gray for Assessor.
The Republican county convention, up
till 10 o'clock yesterday, was mostly held
on the street, in front of the Hollenbeck
and the Turnverein. There is a chasm
between the country delegates and the
city ring. A prominent officer in the
sheriff's office was around, damning the
engineer of the motion which called for
secret balloting, and he also "cussed" the
"punkin' rollers" who had stood by Mr.
Murphey of the Sixth ward, in most un
complimentary terms. It is said that
Judge Cheney has to thank the same
official for having been so unmercifully
knifed on Wednesday. At ten o'clock
Chairman Henry T. Gage called the
convention to order, and his|first|inquiry
was for the delegate from Artesia, the
ever popular and talkative Col. Brooker.
The gentleman did not respond and it
seemed to cast a slight gloom over the
assembly. As a consequence another
ten minutes were lost, but when Mr.
Gage had said that unless the house
came to order they would have no op
portunity of going to the other circus,
silence reigned at once and it became
possible to proceed with the work. The
matter of the last judgeship to be voted
for was then brought before the conven
tion. Mr. Variel withdrew the name of
Hon. W. A. Cheney from the race.
Mr. Mulford moved that three addi
tional tellers be appointed to aid the
tellers already nominated in expediting
the counting of the votes. Mr. Murphey
seconded the motion, but said that it
was the intention of the convention that
the secret ballot should stay. The mo
tion was carried and the extra tellers
were named by the chair.
The result was as follows: G. M.
Holton 105, B. N. Smith 128, W. «.
Wright 45, M. T. Allen 73; whole num
ber of votes cast 351.
Just before the balloting closed some
one raised the cry that the circus was
coming, and ere the chairman could or
der the closing of doors the hall was half
No candidate for the judgeship having
obtained the necessary number of votes,
a new ballot was ordered. At this stage,
looks of disgust became very visible, and
it was freely said that the convention in
tended to camp in Turnverein hall till
November. The greatest disorder pre
vailed in the back of the hall, and the
chairman announced that if silence
could not be maintained he would be
obliged to have the place cleared of all
but delegates.
When the result of the next ballot was
called, it was found that B. N. Smith
was way ahead with 185 votes, G. M.
Holton receiving 106 votes, W. S.
Wright 27 and M. T. Allen 26. On
motion of Dr. Lindley the nomination
was made unanimous.
Senator Carran nominated for school
superintendet W. W. Seaman. The
candidate received the nomination by
It was rumored in the morning that
Thomas B. Hayes of Wilmington had
cast his greedy eye upon the shrievalty
and that he stood a good show for nom
ination. Much to the surprise of the
delegates, the only time his name was
inenuuned, was when Mr. Gage placed
Aguirre in nomination. At that
time the delegates who had
fixed the hall for the young Don
nearly succumbed to fright. The
mention of Tom Hayes' name by Chair
man Gage was as a red rag to a mad
bull. Yet, while Gage started out in
his nominating speech with the name of
Hayes, he stood by Aguirre throughout,
and the scare he inflicted upon the
Alosta and city wards was innocuous
and full of desuetude. The dark horse
from the Palos Nerde would haye proved
a dangerous competitor had he had
twenty-four hours more in which to fix
his numerous friends in the convention.
If he had received the nomination, the
Democrats would have had a harder job
to beat the Republican candidate than
they will now. As it is now, the task
will not be attended with any difficulty.
It is satisfactory to know that Mr.
Hayes, who has friends from Siskiyou
to Tia Juana, is going to stand by Ed.
Gibson if he succeeds in corraling the
vote of the Democratic convention on
the 7th of this month. This means that
the "paisano" must go. Henry T.
Gage, chairman of the convention, sur
rendered the chair to Judge McGee of
Pasadena to nominate Martin G. Aguirre,
and as there was no opposition
to™ the candidate, the nomination
was made by acclamation. The enthus
iasm was great at the result of this cut
and dried little proceeding, but it did
not cause anyone to forget there was $5
due the secretary, and it was called for
in short order.
For county clerk Mr. Variel nominated
T. H. Ward. The ward (seconded
the nomination, through Mr.Murphey.
Colonel Brooker also seconded it, and
said that the candidate had no ring or
pledges to look after. This, of course,
was a delicate attention to Mr. Meredith.
Dr. McGowan thought that James Mere
dith was as much a political organizer
as Mr. Ward, and he placed him in nom
ination for the position of county clerk.
Judge. Fitzgerald took up the cudgels
for Mr. Meredith, and said that if there
was no slur upon the character of Mr.
Ward, as had been intimated by one of
the speakers, there was none either up
on that of Mr. Meredith, and he would
second his nomination. Mr. Variel de
nied that he had cast any imputation
Highest of all in Leavening Power.—TJ. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889.
upon Mr. Meredith, who is a warm per
sonal friend of his.
Judge Hatch seconded the nomination
of Mr. Ward in a very complimentary
speech. He thought that if nominated
this candidate would be elected by the
Dr. Cochrane, while seconding the
nomination of Mr. Meredith, was very
much excited, but managed to get
through with a warm eulogy of his
friend Jim, before he collapsed,
Frank McCoy now got funny, and|giv
ing his name as Mr. Murphy of the
"third," moved that the nominations
close. The motion was carried. It was
evident from tbe first that James Mer
edith was badly snowed under and
when the result was called the applause
for the successful candidate was deafen
ing. Mr. Ward received 215 votes and
Meredith 141.
Mr. Niles thought that there were five
more votes than there were delegates. He
proposed a motion that the ballot be
declared invalid. The speaker was
hooted down by cries of "Rate, sit
down, shut up." A delegate offered as
an amendment to Mr. Niles' motion
that the extra live votes be given to
Mr. Meredith. It was moved and
seconded that Niles' motion be laid on
the table, but no action was taken, be
caus l the chairman just then declared
the b Hot invalid and ordered a new
one taken.
A motion to take a recess till
two o'clock, was howled down by
the • amiable delegates, and the
balloting once more proceeded.
This time, to prevent any
more funny business, each man was re
quested to walk up to the poll with his
ticket in his hand and .give it to the tel
ler, who in turn di pasited it in the an
cient tile that did duty as an urn.
Pretty soon there was a kick. Some
body had been charged with repeating.
The matter was stttle< J ,|ind amid the
greatest precautions the saintly and
moral delegates of the g. o. p. were al
lowed to vote, but so carefully were they
scanned by the sergeant-at-arms
and the tellers that they looked
more like Russian suspects pass
ing a detective inspection than
free American citizens exercising their
right of suffrage. The result of this bal
lot, whether it was that the convention
meant to cast a rebuke on those who
caused the invalidation of the first bal
lot, or for the reason that it was evident
that Meredith's nomination was hope
less, must have been a severe blow to
the friends of the present incumbent of
the county clerk's office. It was a com
plete knock-out. Mr. AVard received
222 votes and Mr. Meredith only 123.
Mr. Ward's nomination was made unan
imous, and the convention adjourned at
12:45 to meet again at 2 o'clock.
Afternoon Session.
At 2:15 o'clock Chairman Gage
pounded the table with his loaded cane
in a futile effort to call the convention
to order, but it was fully ten minutes
later before the delegates were seated;
and on the appearance of an elderly
smooth-faced gentleman the convention
rose to its feet again en masse and
Chairman Gage then introduced the
newcomer as the Republican nominee
for lieutenant-governor of California,
Hon. J. B. Reddick, and the distin
guished visitor was greeted with
cheers. After the noise had to
some extent subsided, Mr. Reddick
addressed the convention briefly.
After warning the delegates to exercise
the greatest care in nominating their
candidates on the senatorial and con
gressional tickets, the speaker gave way
to another visitor, who was playfully
introduced by Chairman Gage as the
next congressman from the Sixth dis
trict, Hon. W. W. Bowers, who was re
ceived with twice three cheers led by
John Brooker of Artesia and George E.
Gard of the Fourth ward.
Mr. Bowers briefly thanked the con
vention for the reception which had
been accorded to him, and impressed
upon the delegates the necessity of
standing by their ticket after it had been
made, as they were in honor bound to
Another visitor, in the person of J. R.
Hebron of Monterey, candidate for
membership on the board of equaliza
tion. Fourth district, was also warmly
The three candidates then left the
hall, and the chairman announced that
the next order of business was the nom
ination of a candidate for the office of
county treasurer. J. W. Woods of Pasa
dena placed in nomination Jabez Ban
bury, the present incumbent. Dr. Lind
ley seconded the nomination, and on
motion of R. H. F. Varied the nomina
tions were closed and the rules suspend
ed. Colonel Banbury then stepped upon
the platform and after paying his $5 fee
thanked the convention for the confi
dence it had expressed in him, where
upon he was unanimously nominated by
The next orcter of business was the
matter of nominating a candidate for
the office of county assessor. After a
short delay Judge W. F. Fitzgerald nom
inated Thomas A. Lewis, who was sec
onded by D. H. Collins of Spadra.
W. H. Thotnas of the Second ward
nominated S. M. Perry, who was second
ed by R. H. F. Variel, and Washington
Taylor, a colored delegate, from the Sec
ond ward.
H. A. Barclay of the Fourth ward
nominated F. E". Gray, who was second
ed by C. C. Brown of Pasadena, J.
Brooker of Artesia, F. G. Haley of Po
mona, H. D. Briggs of Azusa, W. B.
Caldwell of Cahuenga, and several of the
country delegates.
C. M. Jay of Garvanza nominated J.
W. Meyers, who was seconded by O. E.
Roberts of Cahuenga.
The nominations were then closed on
motion of C. M. Wells, and all the can
didates, with the exception of S. M. Per
ry, who was occupied in his official ca
pacity, appeared upon the platform, and
after "depositing their $5 fees, made brief
speeches of thanks.
The roll was then called, and .ballot
ing proceeded with under the "Murphey
At four o'clock the result of the first
ballot was announced as follows:
F. E. Gray, 176; S. M. Perry, 82; T.
A. Lewis, 66; J. W. Myers, 33; J. W.
Francis 1.
of votes cast, 352; num
ber necessary for a choice, 177.
There being one more vote cast than
there were delegates entitled to vote,
the chairman, for the second time dur
ing the day, ordered the secretary to
proceed with the roli call and ballot over
again. A howl went up from the country
side of the house, but there was no ap
peal, and the work was at once pro
ceeded with. The result was finally an
nounced as follows:
F. E. Gray, 240 ;S. M. Perry, 71; T.
A. Lewis, 19; J. W. Myers, 17.
Total number of votes cast, 347 ; nec
essary for a choice, 174.
The result was received with pro
longed cheers from the country dele
gates, and when the noise they created
had subsided, the chairman announced
the next order of business to be the
matter of the nomination of a candidate
for county auditor.
E. K. Chapin of Santa Monica
nominated Thomas A. Lewis, who was
seconded by Dr. W. G. Cochran of the
Third ward, and C. Maholm of the
Seventh ward.
W. H. Burns of the Sixth ward
nominated E. P. Sutherland-, who was
seconded by a delegate from the Sixth

by M. G. Mi X on, of the Fifth ward.
A. D. Wade, of the Third ward, nom
inated A. B. Conrad, who was seconded
by G. M. Holton and C. R. Stephens.
On motion of J. A. Thomas, of the
Fourth ward, the nominations were then
closed, and the candidates having de
posited their respective $5, the secretary
was instructed to proceed with the roll
call for the first ballot.
At six o'clock the result was announced
as follows: C. Howe 117, S. R. Maclay
77, A. B. Conrad 69, T. A. Lewis 34, D.
W.Hamlin 29, E. P. Sutherland 25;
total number of votes cast 351; neces
sary for choice 176.
No one of the candidates having se
cured the requisite number of votes, the
chairman so informed the convention,
and was in the act of instructing the sec
retary to proceed with the roll call for
another ballot, when a motion was made
to adjourn until 9 o'clock this morning.
H. A. Barclay moved to amend by ad
journing until 7:30 o'clock in the even
ing, but as the Turnverein hall could |
not be obtained, the amendment was
voted down and the original motion pre

of the wards of the city last evening,

Dixey Will Present The Seven Ages
A very good house assembled at the
Grand last night to hear the repetition
of Adonis by Henry E. Dixey. There
were a number of counter attrac
tions in the city, but this
popular favorite drew a big house.
Mr. Dixey and his company will pre
sent tonight his new play, the Seven
Ages, at the Grand. The play, accord
ing to Mr. Dixey himself, is more am
bitious than burlesque, and is founded
upon Jacques' wellknown soliloquy in
Shakespeare's As You Like It. Mr.
Dixey's versatility is given a very, wide
scope. He portrays with wonderful
faithfulness, the seven man's
history, beginning with the infant in
its perambulator, and passing success
ively through the characters of the
schoolboy, lover, soldier, justice, old
man, and ending with the "lean and
slippered pantaloon." Particular atten
tion will be directed to the scenic and
musical effects. The sale for seats is
already quite large and it is expected
that a large house will greet Mr. Dixey
The Circus.
Old John Robinson's great circus gave
two fine performances here yesterday,
and the great canvass covered a mighty
crowd on both occasions. The matinee
filled every seat in the house with an
audience that went wild with delight.
The evening performance again packed
the area under the tent with a similar
gathering. There are a half hundred in
teresting features in the show, each of
which is a show in itself. The acrobatic
feats are matchless in their excellence.
The horsemanship is as fine as has ever
been seen in this part of the world. The
races filled the whole space with up
roarious applauße.||lt is a great show
and no mistake.
Lindsay Next Week.
The only thing we have on hand'for
next week is Mr. Lindsay and his com
pany at the Academy of Music, in Hazel
Kirk and other select dramas. The
opening is on Monday.
Dixeys vs. Tufts-Lyons.
The opening of the new Temple street
base ball grounds will take place this
afternoon. The contesting nines will be
the Tufts-Lyon and Henry E. Dixey's
nine,selected from the Adonis company
now playing at the Grand. The Dixey
nine has quite a reputation for good
playing in the east, having played over
twenty games so far this season and
only suffered defeat twice. The players
will be as follows :
J. Ca-roll Catcher I McCray
M Carroll Pitcher J. Bnm'Uer
W. Black Ist Base Williams
1). Don 3d Base A. Bumiller
BarelayWarharton Shortstop "ooley

A good game may be expected, as the
Dixeys are playing for a record. Tem
ple street cable passes the grounds.
The Old Thing Again.
Old f-jchnltz, of the Palace, corner of
Spring and First streets, is always ready
to correct an error. For some time he
has used soda water and such beverages
from a certain new quarter. He gave it a
fair trial and found it was not what he
wanted. What Schultz does drink is
always the best to be had. He will not
put up with an inferior article. So he
has gone back to the old stand-bys, W.
H. Stoll & Co.. who make the best bot
tled ginger ale and such drinks in the
market. These goods are known to be
of the first quality, and that is what is
always found at tho Palace at all times.

Never in the history of this house has so much thought, time and expense
been so willingly given to the purchase of Fall Goods as there has been this sea
son. Two buyers sought the market this fall, and have given their un
divided attention to the purchases. We can truly say no labor nor pains has been
spared in accomplishing our one object, and that was to give tbe ladies of this
community an equal chance with their sisters on the Atlantic coast, of having the
pick and choice of the Novelties in Dry Goods. We didn't rush in the market and
buy any and everything and pay large prices, but simply worked and used our
brains in selections. If you buy too early you don't get the choicest novelties and
you pay too much. Don't, ladies, be in a hurry to buy for you will surely repent
at your leisure, unless you have visited our house. We are sure to please you with
style, quality and price. This is no idle talk; but you can't afford to purchase
anything until you visit us. Our Novelties are select in style and texture; our
prices are lower than ever. For two reasons we claim this: First, it is onr aim
to handle a larger quantity than ever; second, we have bought our goods as low aa
cash would purchase, and we had the market and cash to command only the low
est prices from the importer.
Bough stuffs in mixed, plain and plaids have the preference in everything in
woolen goods. Plushes, especially, are to be used in a variety of forms in trim
ming ; Astrachans are affected in many ways for trimiulng; Velvets, embroidered
are used for Gigot sleeves, black grounds with colored figures have the preference.
Plain Velvets and Velveteens are used extensively; Fringes and hand-made
Silk Trimmings, with and without cut beads, are very popular, and the best styles
are scarce. We are showing a large line in Scotch, English, and French Plaids, in
Serges and Plain Cloths. Broadcloths are more popular than ever for Tailor Made
Costumes. In plain goods, Henriettas, Serges and Whipcords have sway for light
materials, while for rough effects Cheviots Homespun and Aldine Suitings have
come to the front for street dresses. English Corduroys are the rage for traveling
and carriage dresses, and are effected by the bon ton classes. Cloakings are shown
in rough effects. Now a few words about Black Goods, as in the Colored Goods,
rough effects, such as Homespuns, Cheviots and Camels hair are the correct.
For Black Goods in smooth effects we are showing Broadcloths, English Cloths,
Serges, Whipcords, Broad Wales, Plaids.stripes, Rip Reversible Cords, Henriettas,
Raystines, Biarritz and Sebastopol.
We have many new things in Silk and Woolen Goods to mention, but our
space forbids. Come and see these handsome goods, and don't buy until you have
visited our elegant stock. Remember, quality superb, quantity largest, prices
lowest. Respectfully,
