At 10:30 a. m. of Saturday, October 6Oh, th deemneracy of Custer county aunembled in the court house at Miles City were called to order by J. H. Gar lock, chairman of the county central committee, and the proceedings of the county convention began. JaI. Mc Farlane was nominated and elected secretary o temrn. A temporary or ganization being next in order, Mr. Tompkins nominated Mr. McFarlane as tempolrory chairman and there be iog no opposition the nomination was confirmed. Julius Basioski was in like manner made secretary. The newly elected offi,.err having taken their sta. tions, the chairman announoed tile first order of business to be the ap-, pnintment of comr ittees on Creden liales, Resolutions and I'ermanent Or ganization. On motion of Basinoak the chair was emnpowered to) appoint a committee of five on Credentials, which be proceeded to do as follows: )elegates Hilburn. Alexander, Schwartz, Hay and Lisoomb. A like plrocedure was had in regard to the two remaining committees, which were made up as follows: Committee on Resolutions, Delegates Tompkins, Davis, Lum Holt, Hill and Birkle. Committee on Permanent Organiza tion, Delegates Baslnskl, Wilson, Nichol., Stone and W. K. Smith. Ihe c(hairman in ceating about for timber with which to construct this last committee, selected as one of the members, Mr. McHugh, of Forsyth, but the gentleman modestly denied being a member of the convention and Mr. W. K. Smith was substituted for him. A motion was then made for an adjournment till 2:30 p. m. This was opposed by the country members, who desirtd to reassemble at 1 o'clock, and although a motion to adlouro is not desatable, a lengthy diecusaton was indulged in, during which Delegate Wilson, of Sadie, sought to have a committee on Rules of Order ap pointed. As no rules of order were desired Mr. Wilson was promptly ruled out of order and the debate on adjournment w1. resumed and inallly a vote was had on the original propo. aition, (though repeatedly amended,) which was defeated by an overwhelm. Ing vote. Thip, however, did not de ter Mr. a.luinski from calling for a di vision of the house, which when di. ild d sahowed about five for the 2:30 adjouunment and some forty "for itiust" it. A motion was then made for an adjourawmeit until 1:30 p. i., which prevailled. A FTERNOON SE:..ION. Although the hour set for reconven Ltg Wa, halflpa-t one, tardy delegates wade it two o'clock before the chair waul's gavel rapped the oouvention to order, and butines. was agalu taken up.

The next order was hearing the report of the Committee on Per manent Orgaulzaticn. The report wac read by the secretary, the sub. tanoee of it being simply to make the temporary organization permanent, and on motion of Alexander it was adopted. Chairman McFarlane then addrersed the convention as follows: Gentlemen-:-We have assembled here to day to select candidates for the various county oniffices to be filled at the electon this fall. I trust that this meeting may be harmonious, and that the selections of candidates made here to-oay may be of good and repre. rentative men of this county. If we do this we need have no fear for the result; the battle will be nearly won, and when the sun hbs .et in the west ern horizon on the 6:h of November next, It will be upon another victory for the democracy. I thank you, gen tlemen, for the honor of having made me your chairrman. The committee on Order of Bulsines then reported the order in which nomlinatons were to be made, whihob was on motion adopted, and the com mittee on R.esolutlions were called upon for their report as follows: Your committee on Resolutions beg leave to submit the following: Resolved, By the demoorats of Cus ter couity, M.

Nominations for cuncilnman being I in order Whitheck nominated C. R. Middleton and there being no opposi tion the nomination was nade unanl mnous. Some objection was made to this manner of doing business, Stone of Dixon claimni:g that nominations should be made tly ballot. Hay of Rosebud was of the came opinion, but the matter wae adjusted by a ruling bhat hereafter the ballot must prevail when there is wore thro one candi late in the field. For the lower hous-, Hey nominated Thos. Alexander of Forsyth, Wbitbeck nominated E. H. Jhnson of Miles City and Basiueki uomlnated J. W. Buster of Dakota. The nominations were then closed and a ballot ordered. Whitbeck moved for an informal bollot but got no sec :,.d. The chair explained that each delegate was to vote f.,r two candi dates uand the two receiving the high rat vote would be del iared nominated. At this point a qucsutton was raised by Ien Holt as to whether Mr. Buster was a resident of thlli territory, and no oun was able to eilighten him; Hay thought be an onnt: amid some con fusion a ballot war ordered and partly taken when the enquiry war made to the 3bhar, werhber Butter's name bad been withdrawn or not. Tue chair said It had not. Basinski then desired to make a motion to withdraw it and substitute someone else but was ruled out of order. The motiou was made however, seconded, put by the obhair man and carried. Basluski then withdrew Buster's name, and placed L.a nomination J. M. Holt. This brought Ben Holt to his feet with the emphatic declaration that J. M. Holt would not accept. Basineki then nominated J. H. Garlock who abo promptly declined the honor. There benlg no one else available, Cotter moved that the ballot be proceeded with and it was so ordered. There belnl no contest as there were only two nomlnations to fill two omoes, on motion of Bullard the nominations of Alexander and Johnson were made unaitnous. The nomiustionr for mbhrtff being niext In order, Louis Kiug' not Inat.ed T. H. Irvine mud therer being no oppo. iltiotn the ani WA Ns duade uuialuinoumi, hle mnnouanoiiinent hbing greeted with alpplause, it beir' the firat display of hinything approa-bhing enthumlumi Illl4 for in thec prt'wCdiugs. IFo low - ing thum t'alue the. noiiuinathua for Ireniurpr, aud uowitbstauding tlimi tucrr euhd been rulonors of a deadly iniu tnuuty between the two candidatre f presented, the proceedings were of a must perfunotory character. Bullard placed the name of C. L. Merrill be fore the convetuion, and Wilson, of Sadie, did likewise for the preset incumbeut, Till Brandenburg. Whit beck who had a craving for informal ballots moved for one in t tbl case and the questiou was put without yes or nay being heard. The chair not gel iboing thus iuditfrenoe sharply rapped the convention to order and again put the motion as to whether there should or abould not be an luformal ballot and tie vote was in favor of the latter. An informal ballot was thereupon taken, the result being Merrill 30, Brandenburg 17. Basionki then moved to wake Merrill's nomination unanimous but was choked off by an outcry of disapprobation and a formal ballot was taken vith precisely the same result, viz: Merrill 30, Brandes burg 17, and the cnir announooed Mr. Merrill the choice o' the convention as treasurer. Notw'.ithatandiog that this was given out t, be the battle royal of the oonvent, n and for blood, no echo of applause 5,lturbed the air a hen rhe result was .n Ioounced. ' The next in order a probate judge. W. K. mrritb nom Lated F. M. , t.hwartz and there be itg no oppasl I tion, on motion of Cotter the Same t was made unanimous. No applause.) AAsesuer came next and Tompkins I and Whitbeck were on their feet eimultaneoumly to nominate T. J. Thompson. Through the combined etfforts of tbese two worthies, Mr. Thomimon was again launched on the troublous sea of politics, and no one drtiring to contest the nomloetion with him, Cotter wade the usual motion and the nomination was de clared ununiwous. (No applauee.) County clerk came next, and gair Whitteck soared the honor of pro tenting the nominee, this time with Cotter, both presenting the name of L. C. Dear. No opposition. Motion to make it unanimous; so ordered; (no applause). For county attorney, Scbwartz presented the name of G. R. Milburo; no opposition; motion to make it unanimous; no ordered; (ne opplause. The next on the lit was eounay commissioner. This announement awakened some little Interest as the county delegates had a candidate and wanted him nominated. Nomina tions being in order, Hay presented the name of T. J. Grabam, of Rosebed; Ben Holt, Geo Llseomb, C. L. MeKay and leo. Soheetz were also presented. Whitbeek cruved an informal ballet which Hay thought was unnecessary but was ruled out of order. The mot:on for an informal ballot was put and carried and the allot ordered result nlog as follow: (iransaI 22, Scheetz 19, Liscomh 4, McKay 3, Holt having witberawn. A formal ballot wastben ordered resulting as follows: Graham 24, tebeetz 24. A. soon as this result was announced C'otter moved a recess of flitten minuter which was contest ed by Hey and other country dele gatte but ineffectually and the recess was taken. On reassembling the second formal ballot was taken result lang as follows: Ecbeetz 32, Graham 14. (Applause.) The recess did the buelness and the country delegates saw then if not before that they need expect nothing at the bands of the I tl~l~ .Il tint * br..lfl ,?Iiill turveyor was next on the lint. Louls King nominated E. P. H. Harrison, of Virginia, and notwithstanding that he al intligible, bis nomination was i the usual course made unsoamous. For superintendent of public instrue tion Mrs. Emily C. Carpenter, of Rosebud, and J. H. Ware, of Forsyth, were named. A bollot being taken Mrs. Carpenter was complimUnted with "9 votes while her opponent re oelved but li,. For coroner Dr. R. G. Redd and Louise Payette were somi nated. Dr. 1Redd withdrew and the field being clar for Payette he west over the oourse in a canter and wes declared to be the unminee by uasal mous consent. An effort was mad by Cotter to present the same of Dr. Fish on the withdrawal of Red4, bet that gentlemas stated that he bha withdrawn in favor of Mr. PayetL, as Fslh was ruled out. A lively lime ensued whu (hi olloe of public adnloistrator easos to be filled. Tompklmg nomalalted W. Birkle, who at once deulined eo t ground of not desiring to be gee. sidered a chronlo omoe seeker. HoI nominated E. B. Weirick who was not present and could not odiete. Bullard nominated H. W. Melst~e, the republican lominla of two m ago for thls same omBae; nominated Dr. tedd who pereem Ily declined, and Baiskt thee.. oated (eo.
