The noisy boys were there but were not allowed speak their mind.They ' did speak it tho in a soft way, not loud enough to be. heard. They seemed hacked, under cover as it vre, they felt it down in their hetfrts, but like noble fellows they kept it to themselves. Thev were ' absolutely hacked for the first time in many years of Republican conventions in Brecken ridge county- How nice for brethern . to dwell in peace and harmony.

Mr. Moorman wa brought into the convention and said he was for the county unit first, last and all the time. None of these state meats were satisfactory to Mr. lias well. He had been a member of the House and knew how easy CONVENTION'S HERO it is to whip around the bush. He wanted to clinch them, bind them and tie them so if they didn't vote right when in the legislature, the people would know the reason why. He offered the following four-square-resolution which was adopted: ' Resolved, that, we the Repub lican county convention assembled do hereby re-aflirm the Republic an State platform as adopted at Louisville, and especially, that portiou thereof declaratory of the party 's position on the question of county unit.

L.Cin non, of McDaniels; his nomination was seconded by Henninger, who paid aglowino tribute to his worth as a man, and as a life-long Rep ublican. Speech for Moorman H. A. Oelze nominated C. W. Moorman. He said he had known Mr. Moorman intimately for the past twelve years and for all that time he knew he had been a loyal Republican. He said his candid ate was all right on the County Unit and could be depended upon to stand for that measure. Roscoe Lasley seconded the nomination of C. W. Moorman, Jesse Eskridge the nomination of Judge Ahl. Chairman Garner reminded the convention that the most serious and complicated part of this con vention was now at hand. He wanted a square deal.
