The regular meeting of the Dupuyer and Robare republican club was held in the town hall, Saturday evening, Sept. 8th, 1894. Owing to the absence of the presi dent and vice president, C. B.

Reports of the various committees were called, after which the follow ing new members were admitted: T. E. Delany, Geo. W. Magee, Frank Dean, James Phillips, P. Higgins and F. H. Federhen. Two amendments to the constitution of the club, which had been proposed at the last meeting of the club by W. L. Cowgill, were then brought up for discussion. The object of the amendments was to give the members of the club more freedom in voting, and was strongly op posed by S. L. Potter. Geo. W. Magee and others supporting it. After considerable discussion a vote was called for and the amend ments were carried. W. D.

Three candidates were in the field for sheriff, Messrs W. L. Cow gill, W. H. Gallagher and S. L. Potter. All three of the candi dates had been diligently at work for some time previous to the day sot for the primary, rustling votes and supporters, each one, of course, confident of the usual» 1 'walk over." The primary was held in the school house and was called to or der at a little af^er.2 p. m. by Mr. Potter, chairman pro. tem. Prior to the meeting, however, Cowgill and Potter had consolidated their forces, having agreed on one set of delegates and alternates. Galla gher also had a ticket with his list of delegates and alternates printed thereon. Upon the meeting being called to order two chairmen were nominated, Dr. H. A. Gillette by the Gallagher faction and Tomas Dean by the opposing side. Un fortunately some members of the opposing factions became excited and indulged in language which was both bitter and personal. The disturbance was^quieted down, how ever, and Dr. Gillette was elected chairman by a slight majority, Mr. Cowgill immediately withdrawing from the candidacy. The meeting being called to order by the new chairman, Messers J. C. McCuaig and H. Barnum were appointed by the Chair as secretaries. Mr. Pot ter then took the floor to set forth his claims and aspirations to the office of sheriff. After Mr. Galla gher had made a like plea, the vot ing commenced resulting, after j ew votes had heen challenged, it \ victory for the Gallagher ticket As the nomination for sheriff was the main feature of the primary, nothing more was done and the meeting broke up. Some fears were entertained lest the display of ill temper shown at the primary caused trouble during the euening, but, with the good sense generally shown by Dupuyer people, every thing remained quiet with the ex ception of a slight altercation be tween a man named Smith and half-breed named Selois. The president has reappointed David G. Browne of Fort Bentou as collector of customs for Montana and Idaho. Browne has twice be fore been appointed to this position and both times failed of confirma tion. Advertised Letters.
