THE TICKET HADE.
Continued from 3d page. Afternoon Session. In spite of the vigorous efforts made to curtail the recess hour, before adjourn ment, there was no disposition on the part of the majority of tbe delegates to abide by the motion apparently, for at 1 o'clock not more than one-fourth of the delegates were on hand. At 1:15 o'clock, however, Chairman Patton ap peared,and at once rapping for order an nounced that nominations for the office of coroner were then in order. R. Stroud of Alhambra arose and placed in nomination Dr. J. C. Hannon. J. Deßarth Shorb said that in spite of the fact that the young men of the Democracy were already well repre sented upon the ticket, he arose to place in nomination for the office of coroner another young rrian in the person of Thomas F. Donahue. L. C. Winston of Pasadena seconded the nomination of Dr. J. C. Hannon. T. E. Gibbon of the Third ward seconded the nomination of Thomas F. Donahue. E. H. Bentley of Compton seconded that of Dr. Hannon. M. F. Gibbons of Wilmington moved that the nominations be then cloßed. At this juncture, however, Judge Guthrie of the Fourth ward placed in nomination Dr. H. Nadeau, an an nouncement which was received with cheers. J. W. Swanwick seconded the nomina tion of that old and tried Democrat, Dr. J. C. Hannon. L. T. House of Redondo Beach seconded the nomination of Dr. J. C. Hannon. Col. J. J. Ayers said that nothing could afford him greater pleasure than to second the nomination of Dr. Nadeau, but he had been informed that that gentleman was about to leave the state on a European tour and could not there fore accept a place on the ticket. He would like to induce him to stay in Los Angeles, as he was a tower of strength and would control a large number of votes, which had been utterly and en tirely neglected by the Republican party. "If Dr. Nadeau will run," said Col. Ayers, "I will take greatpleasure in seconding his nomination. If not, I will take equal pleasure in performing a like duty for that old and tried Demo crat, Dr. J. 0. Hannon, who has already filled that and other offices with credit to himself and the party he represents." J. C. Morgan of Santa Monicaseconded the nomination of Dr. Nadeau, —"if he'll go." Chairman Patton said he had no authority to say whether or not Dr. Nadeau would accept the nomination, but in all probability the gentleman who placed in nomination knew. Judge Guthrie said that personally he knew nothing about the matter. He had been informed, however, that if Dr. Nadeau was nominated by aecla matiou he would accept the nomina tion. This announcement was received with cheers. Frank Hamm stated that he had spoken to Dr. Nadeau on Tuesday even ing about the matter and that was his understanding. P. Ballade thought that Dr. Nadeau would run, and moved that the nomi nations close.. Before the roll call was proceeded with T. E. Gibbon withdrew the name T. F. Donahue from the list of candidates, ex plaining that it was understood that Dr. Nadeau was not in the race, when his nominee entered the contest. The roll was then called and the re sult when announced was as follows : Dr. H. Nadeau g 218 Dr. J. C. Hannon 81 Total vote cast 297 Necessary for a choice 149 The announcement was received with prolonged cheers, which were renewed when L. T. House moved that Dr. Nadeau's nomination be made unani mous by acclamation, and it was so ordered. Nominations of candidates for the office of county surveyor were, then de clared to be in order, and L. T. Ho use of Redondo Beach placed in nomination the name of L. Friel of that place. He apologized for not having kissed the Blarney stone, and therefore not having "the gift of gab," but in eloquent tones he claimed recognition for the seaboard of the county, which had as yet no repre sentative on the ticket. He said that the Republicgns in making their ticket had evidently considered fitness as a plant which only grew within the limit ed district 'round Los Angeles city, as thirteen out of their eighteen nominees were from the city. This convention, however, recognized fitness as a plant in digenous to the whole county, and had already recognized every part of the county but that little strip along the coast. Mr. Friel had had nineteen years' experience, and had no superior in the county as an engineer. He was a thorough Democrat withal. Redondo Beach two years ago was not even a pre cinct, and had never as yet cast its maiden vote, but this yea* it would cast 250 (cheers), and of those, whether Friel was nominated or not, it would cast a majority of at least 50 for the Demo cratic ticket. J. Deßarth Shorb apologized for taking the floor so often, but he came to place in nomination J. B. Winston, a gentle man for whom he had more feeling than any of those he had spoken of- before, because he was the son of a gentleman who was personally beloved by the whole of Los Angeles county. Much had been said of the late Col. Volney E. Howard, and he echoed every sentiment that had been uttered of him, but the name of Dr. Winston brings the heart of every man who knew him to his throat. The gentleman I nominate is a worthy son of his worthy and beloved sire. R. Ling in seconding the nomina tion Mr. Winston said he did not do so becauseiof his old father, whose name brings tears to the hearts of the older Los Angeles county Democrats, but be cause he was a sterling young Democrat and a gentleman eminently fitted for the position. He would bring 500 Dem ocratic votes, because the older citizens would rally round his standard. If Mr. Winston was elected the party will be spared the humiliating spectacle of see ing a notice posted on the door of tlie Highest of all in Leavening Power.—U. S. Govt Report, Aug. 17, 1889. Powder ABSOLUTE!* PURE THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 9, 1890. county surveyor's office to the effect that he could not pay 20 cents on the dollar. Judge J. T. Bearden in seconding the nomination of L. Friel thought it was right and just that the seaboard should be represented on the ticket, and that it would be characteristic of the Demo cratic party's actions to do so. J. C. Morgan of Santa Monica sec onded the nomination of J. B. Win ston. ; Calvin Edgerton of Vernon also seconded Mr. Winston's nomination, and extolled the memory of the county's dead heroes. He was interrupted by cries of '•Time." but excitedly yelled": "I'll speak my speech out, and you shall not put me down in speaking of a dead hero's son." He concluded with the hope that the Democratic party would take this native son by the hand and lead him to the seat of honor. R. J. Adcock, of University, seconded the nomination of L. Friel in an elo quent speech. J. Marion Brooks, who was compelled to get upon the platform, seconded the nomination of Mr. Friel. He said that the name of a pioneer's son had been presented. He would have been a pio neer himself if the opportunity had oc curred; but it was not those who lived upon the records made by their fathers before them, who lived in the hearts of the people. It was those who made their own records, pioneers or other wise. Mr. Winston was a young man of culture and refinement; but Mr. Friel is a man of experience and he hoped that that would carry some weight with it. Col. J. J. Ayers then rose to second Mr. Friel's nomination, which he did as follows: Gentlemen : If there is any man in this convention who should second a nom ination as a pioneer it is me. If any one should second the nomination of a son of Dr. Winston, it is me, for it was in '49, in Chili Gulch, Calaveras county, that I first met Dr. Winston. Now, all this talk about pioneers' sons is not what should be said in a Democratic convention. We are not only here to nominate the best men, but the strong est ticket with which to confront the enemy. With all due respect to Mr. Winston and all honor to the memory of his respected father, this is nc time or place for sentimentalisra. I therefore second the nomination of Mr. Friel for the reasons given us, viz : that the seaboard of the county has been over looked, and I think that district should be represented upon the ticket. Judge Guthrie also seconded the nom ination of Mr. Friel, and stated that by placing him upon the ticket the party would secure the votes of E. T. Wright's friends. On motion of W. B. Crisp, the nomi nations were then closed, and the roll call was then proceeded with. The result ot the ballot was announced as follows: «* U Friel . 153 J. B.Winston 144 Total vote cast 297 Necessary for a choice 149 On motion of Judge Morgan, of Santa Monica, the momination of Mr. Friel was made unanimous by acclamation. The next order of business being that of nominating a candidate for the office of public administrator, George S. Patton resigned the chair to Vice-President Jno. Bryson, and rose to comply with a duty which he felt strongly and deeply interested in, not only on account of the person he should name, but on account of the valuable services he had rendered to the party during the past eight years. Mr. Billy Waters (loud and prolonged cheers), as secretary of the Democratic county central committee, had always been in the forefront of the battle for the good of the cause, and though poor, he had not only refused to accept one dollar of compensation for his services, but he had willingly met every call that had been made upon him. (A voice—"l move we nominate Billy Wa ters by acclamation"). This is the first favor he has ever asked at your hands, and if elected he will poll more Republican votes than any man on the ticket. Cheer after cheer rent the air as the speaker closed, and cries of "Waters" were heard. Judge J. T. Bearden in nominating W. E. Hughes, said that unfortunately, all could not be secretaries of the county central committees, but his nom inee had rendered every service to the party that ha could. He was a gentle man of undoubted respectability, com petent, and peculiarly fitted for the office. Captain A. F. Mackey seconded the nomination of Mr. Hughes. F. B. Colver, on behalf of the solid delegation from the Second ward, heart ily seconded the nomination of Mr. Waters. He had known him for eight years, and he was always at work for the party, early and late. L. C. Winston of Pasadena followed suit, as did also W. B. Crisp of Sierra Madre, who at the close of his remarks moved that the nominations be closed. J. H. Brewer of Vernon here took the floor and said: "I want this conven tion to understand that Billy "Waters is not fromj West Virginia, but from Maryland; if anybody wants to know about the Democracy of Maryland, "by g—d, let 'em ask me." Mr. Waters was called upon to make a speech when on the platform paying his $5 fee, but he declined on the plea that he would do so later, if nominated. Mr. Hughes said that if nominated he would do the best for the ticket. He was not a speaker and begged to be ex cused. The secretary then proceeded with the roll call, but only a few precincts had been called when Judge Bearden, who had nominated Mr. Hughes, with drew his nomination and moved to nom inate Waters by acclamation. The mo tion was carried with enthusiasm, and the convention again insisted upon a speech. Mr. Waters then appeared upon the platform and simply said : "Gentlemen of the county and city, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the honor you have done me. It is getting late and you have lots yet to do. I will try to entertain you better during the campaign." J. Deßarth Shorb itihen arose to place in nomination as representative of the 38th senatorial district Judge Enoch Knight, of Pasadena, whom he characterized as a gentleman of a retir ing, rather than pushing, disposition. and therefore not as well known to many of the more recent residents of the county. He was a gentleman of culti vated tastes and intellect, and a conserv ative gentleman. He had had a long experience in the hall of the legislature of his native state, Maine. He had made a great impression here upon the minds of the commercial men by the manner in which he took the floor, at a celebrated convention of the board of trade of the Pacific Blope, after an unfortunate speech by Capt. Marry, of San Francisco, and in less than five minutes poured oil upon the troubled waters and restored peace. •'lf nominated ke will beat Carpenter by two to one," said the speaker. Col. J. J. Ayers in seconding the nom ination of Judge Knight said that he was a man of brains, power and integri ty, and worthy of the respect of the con vention, and the place on the ticket it was proposed to give him. L. T. House, ofjjtedondo Beach, also seconded the nomination, which on mo tion of Judge Guthrie, was made by ac clamation. Col. J. J. Ayers and J. De Barth Shorb were appointed by the chair as a special committee to conduct Judge Knight to the platform, and this pleasant duty having been performed, Judge Enoch Knight was formally introduced and ad dressed the convention as follows: Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Convention : I never was so much sur prised at myself in my "life as I was to find myself upon this platform, and I have had something to do with organi zations of all sorts at various stages of my life. But at present I am at peace with all of my race, I am well employed, and I don't want any public office. I am in doubt as to whether or not to accept this. Ido not affect flippancy ;so now, gentlemen, I ask you to deal fairly with me as I will with you. If you seriously and cordially desire and urge that I co operate with you, I won't decline this nomination. (Loud and prolonged cheering). Thank you. I feel that though I don't want the posi tion, I owe it as a duty to you to do so. I will take it. (Cheers). I will walk along the lines laid down for me and will use every effort in my power to further your interests. If the miracle of election should come to me, I assure you, as all men who know me will testily to, that I have no individual interest in any corporation, nor have I one cent of stock in any, and shall there fore always endeavor to do my duty to the public trust. Three hearty cheers were given for the speaker as he left the platform. George S. Patton again resigned the chair and in a brilliant speech placed in nomination as representative for the 76th assembly district, the name of A. M. Bragg of Compton. He eulogized him as a farmer of incorruptible honesty, who had grown gray in the service of the Democratic party, and moved that he be nominated by acclamation, which motion carrie d unanimously. A. M. Bragg then briefly addressed the convention, promising to make a buckboard campaign of his district, and if elected, to do all in his power to bene fit his constituents. His choice for state senate was "Steve" White, [cheersj. Col. J. J. Ayers then took the plat form to place in nomination for repre sentative of the 77th assembly district, Gen. John R. Mathews, of Los Angeles, which he did in an eloquent three minute speech. On motion of Judge Guthrie, the nom ination of Gen. Mathews was made by acclamation. * Gen. Mathews then addressed the convention briefly, and accepted the nomination from a sense of duty he owed to the people of this city as well as the party. He was not a politician, but a merchant, and he could only promise that if elected, his aim should be not only to act for the Democracy, but for the people, who, when he returned, would find his head, heart and hands clean and unsullied. On motion of W. F. Heathman the regular order of business was passed and the nomination of supervisors was reached. In order to allow the respec tive districts to make their appoint ments, however, a recess of 15 minutes was had at this juncture, which an nouncement was hailed with shouts of welcome. At 3:45 o'clock the convention was again called to order, and on motion of Col. J. J. Ayers, it was resolved that in order to expedite the business yet before the convention, that the delegates from the outside townships should send in the names of their respective candidates for the township offices to the secretary of the county central committee, so that after the nomination of supervisors they could go home, and leave the city dele gation to nominate its own officers. The delegates from the first super visoral district reported that they had nominated W. T. Martin of Pomona; from the third supervisoral district, T. E. Rowan ; and from the fifth supervis oral didtrict, S. I. Mayo. These announcements were received with loud applause, and on motion they were unanimously ratified by the convention. Geo. S. Patton again resigned the chair to Vice President John Bryson, and before adjourning said he had one very important matter to call to the attention of the delegates. He strongly advocated the election of John T. Gaffey on the board of equalization, claiming that unless he was elected, the thirteen counties of Southern California would be without representation on the board. This, he said, was not a matter of politics, but of business, and it touched the pockets of every tax payer in Southern California. On motion of John W. Mitchell of Cahuenga, the thanks of the convention were extended to Mr. George S. Patton for the manner in which he had pre sided over the convention, and "three cheers for Patton" were heartily given. On motion of Judge Guthrie a vote of thanks was tendered to the . vice-presi dent -and secretaries; on motion of J. M. Brooks, to the pages and sergeant-at arms ; and on motion of F. B. Colver to the press. On motion of Richard Dunnigan tiie convention then adjourned sine die, to meet immediately afterwards as a city convention, with three hearty cheers for the ticket, and "three fnore for the Heads." V 7. A. Ryan was unanimously elected chairman of the city convention, and the matter of nominating candidates for the office of township justice was announced as in order. M. W. Conkling placed in nomination Judge B. £. Taney, as a man who had formerly occupied the office honorably and creditably. Richard Dunnigan nominated W. Crawford, and scored the present incum bent unmercifully in doing so. Judge Guthrie concurred in the re marks of his predecessor and nominated W. H. Mitchell, whom he characterized as a well educated, pure, and above all, honest man. I John Bryson, Sr., briefly placed in nomination the name of Daniel Picket. Col. J. J. Ayerein seconding W. Craw ford's nomination said he was perfectly cnpnb ,r nf filling tftr oflVo, and knew' the luw as well as any young practi tioner of tbe Los Angeles county bar. F. W. Allender seconded the nomina ation of D. Picket. J. De Barth Shorb endorsed both Taney and Picket, and on motion of R. J. Dominguez the nominations were then closed. Each of the candidates appeared and after paying his fee of $6, promised that no scandal should emanate from th c office if he was elected to it. On motion of C. A. Bell it was resolved, in the event of there being no choice at the end of a ballot, to drop the name of the candidate receiving the smallest number of votes. The roll was then called and the re sult of the first ballot at 4:30 o'clock was announced as follow: W. Crawford 53 B E. Taney 49 I). Picket 32 W. H. Mitchell 14 Total vote cast 148 Necessary for a choice 75 There being no choice, Mitchell's name was dropped from the list, and the roll was called ior the second ballot, the result of which when announced 10 minutes later was as follows: W. Crawford 82 B. E. Taney 42 D. Picket 24 Total vote cast 148 Necessary for a choice 75 On motion of F. B. Colver, seconded by Fred Harkness, the nomination of W. Crawford was made unanimous by ac clamation. Nominations for two township con stables was then announced as in order, and Capt. A. F. Mackey nominated Ralph Dominguez, and Judge Guthrie seconded this nomination with great pleasure. T. E. Gibbon placed in nomination D. F. Finucane, who he said was big enough and brave enough to fill the bill. F. Allender seconded the nomination of Ralph Dominguez on behalf of the young Democrats, and J. Marion Brooks also seconded tlie nomination. J. W. Swanwick placed in nomination the name of C. E. Roberts, who two years ago ran 800 votes ahead of Grover Cleveland. (Yells from the Seventh ward). F. B. Colver seconded the nomination of I). F. Finucane. Fred Harkness nominated his Ger man friend E. L. Siewecke with great pleasure, as he was alwayß willing to work for the party. Joe Davidson of the Third ward placed in nomination W. R. Lewis, whose claim for recognition was that he had given employment to hundreds of la borers. R. J. Colver, as one of the young Democrats, seconded the nomination of C. E. Roberts. R. F. Sepulveda said he seconded the nomination of W. R. Lewis on behalf of the Spanish-Americans; but he was in terrupted by roars of "No! No!" and sat down. D. M. McGarey seconded Finucane's nomination,-while Gen. J. R. Mathews performed a like office for "Chalk" E. Roberts. J. H. Bennett placed in nomination the name of V. L. Sanchez, who had gained experience by years of service on the police force and in the sherifPs office. J. W. Swanwick and Col. J. J. Ayers seconded the nomination of Ralph Do minguez. C. J. Mclntyre of the First ward placed in nomination S. Nicoletti, the presenter of the flag which adorned the stage. W. A. Ryan seconded the nomination of D. F. Finucane ; G. F. Willig that of X, L. Siewecke ; C. A. Bell that of S. Nicoletti; J. J. Naughton that of C. E. Roberts; and W. R. Stephenson that of V. L. Sanchez. The nominationsjthen closed, and the same rule was adopted as in the preced ing order of business as to the vote. At this juncture, M. J. Nolan, of the Sev enth, withdrew the name of S. Nicoletti from the list of candidates in favor of C. E. Roberts. S. Nicoletti appeared in person, how ever, and said: "I do withdraw, but in favor of no person." The candidates appeared and depos ited their fees, and -V. L. Sanchez with drew on the plea that his nationality was already well represented on the ticket. The roll call was then proceeded with and resulted as follows: C. E. Roberts 1 99 D. F. Finucane 78 K. Dominguez 52 L. Siewecke 49 W. R. Lewis 16 Total vote cast 148 Necessary for a choice 75 On motion of Judge Guthrie, Roberts and Finucane were then .declared the unanimous nominees of the convention by acclamation, and the convention be came very disorderly. The chairman reminded the dele gates that their work was not yet completed, and declared nominations for candidates for city jus tices to be in order. T. E. Gibbon placed in nomination W. P. Hvatt, whom he said would be no weight, but an assistance in the race. Capt. A. F. Mackey nominated R. W. Ready, who was seconded by Col. J. J. Ayers, and characterized as a friend of labor, a good lawyer, and a good Demo crat and one that would make a good justice of the peace, and an honest one. J. H. Bennett seconded the nomina tion of W. P. Hyatt. The nominations were then closed and on motion of T. E. Gibbon were made unanimous by accla mation. This closed tho work of the conven tion, which, on motion of Col. Ayers, then adjourned sine die, after passing votes of thanks to the chairman and secretary. FAIR PROSPECTS. Everything Indicates a Fine Exhibit and Race Meeting. The annual fair which begins at Los Angeles next Tuesday, is the eleventh one given under the auspices of the Sixth District Agricultural association. En tries are pouring in from all sides and the directors and officers of the associa tion are kept very busy just at present.

As was reported in yesterday's Her ald, [a couple of sheriff's officers on Tuesday arrested Nathan Willett, near Norwalk, for a murder alleged to have been perpetrated by him in Texas in 1872. They turned him over to O. E. Bexley, the sheriff of Lee county, Tex as, at the Arcade depot, who departed with him on his homeward journey in the evening. By some means Willett's friends became acquainted with his ar rest, and the extraordinary manner in which he was being railroaded out of the state, and they also learned that Bexley intended to leave Willett in the San Ber nardino jail for safe keepinsr during the whole of yesterday. In order to bring him back within the jurisdiction of this county, Mr. M. C. Hungerford, a friend of Willett, sued out a petition for a writ of habeas corpus yesterday afternoon, in which he alleges" that Willett was un lawfully restrained of his liberty at San Bernardino by Bexley, and that the re quisition from the governor of Texas, under which he was delivered to the Lee county sheriff, is not in due form. The writ was granted by Judge Shaw at half past four, and immediately telegraphed to Sheriff Seymour of San Bernardino, and made returnable today. It is bare ly possible that it may reach Mr. Sey mour in time. SENATOR WASHBURNE. He is on His Way to This City From the North. Senator E. B. Washburne of Minneapo lis and a party of friends came south from San Francisco yesterday and went to Santa Barbara, where they will re main for a day or two.
