The Republican County Conven tion was called to order last Satur day by County Chairman, Hon. John Donaldson, who was made temporary chairman of the conven tion and Prof. H. G. Fuller was honored with the temporary secre taryship. The usual committees were selected. Adjournment was aken until 12:30 when the gavel was sounded and the delegates came to order in their places. The Com mittee on Permanent Organization and Order of Business reported and Eieut-Col. Thos. R. Hamer was recommended for permanent chair man and Bash L. Bennett of Lewis ville permanent secretary. The report was adopted. The Committee oil Resolutions introduced the following which was unanimouslv adopted: Sec. 1. ' RESOLVED That the Republicans of Fremont county, Idaho, in convention assembled, heartily endorse the National Re publican administration. Sec. '2. RESOLVED That I Fremont county, in convention as I riciuum ujuiui, in ciiuun an . , , , . - , T > , setnbled, hereby endorse the Repub-■ .. .

Rich be elected a dele gate at Pocatello to the Republican national convention, and that the delegates to the State convention are hereby requested to exercise their influence to the utmost to elect him to the said j naional convention. j naional convention. The election of twenty-three ; ' delegates was then proceeded with I and the following were elected to go to the Pocatello convention: Thos. R. Hamer: Geo. Harrig fehl; Chas. A. Smith: Albert Tay-lof j lor: Conrad Waley: O. P. Soule ; ! I R. J. Comstock; \V. E. Holly ; j Albert Heath; Victor Hegsted; Caleb Joues; Sam Harrop: J. Web ster ; Geo. Cordon : John Donaldson ; J. E. Fogg; J. W. Hart; D. Osborn; Harry Cannon; F. A. Pyke;C. C. Moore; M. J. Gray; A. A. Adams. It was recommended that the County Central Committee be re organized and the various delega tion proceeded to select from each precinct a county central com mitteeman, a list of which will be published later. Before the close of the conven tion a resolution in regard to the unjust distribution of the Federal patronage emenating from the Blackfoot land office, which had been taken up and passed by the County Executive Committee, was presented by Judge Kelly of Fre mont. Hon. David Osborn of Rex burg, moved t^iat the convention ratify the actions of the County Executive Committee, which was seconded from various parts of the convention. After a few remarks by Judge Donaldson, by way of explaining to the convention that the Teton Peak was unjustly deprived of any portion of the Federal patronage, (the publication of laud notices) from the Blackfoot Land Office and that all other Re publican papers in the county were receiving their share, and one paper in particular, the Chronicle, / / / ' / / £ / S was receiving all the notices pub lished in St. Anthonv, the résolu tion was passed by the entire vote ot the convention. The resolution as passed is as follows: RESOLVED That it is the sense of this committee that the Federal patronage arising from the Government Land Office at Black foot is unjustly deprived from our recognized party organ "The Teton Peak," and we demand that action be taken whereby this matter may be remedied ; and that a copy of this resolution be sent to our National Committeeman and State Chairman, and that they be requested to use their influence and endeavors to secure for our official organ that patronage to which it is justly entitled. The convention then adjourned. Taking into consideration the fact that this convention was com paratively of little consequence, the Republicans of Fremont county are to be congratulated upon the very large attendance. Nearly every precinct was represented and the total number of delegates in at tendance was about 190. It was remarked by some of our Demo cratic friends that the Republicans are still in evidence and if that con vention is a forecast of the patriot ism and enthusiasm contained with in the Republican ranks this year, it will be of little use for the Demo crats to hold a convention at all. Accidental Shooting. This morning at 5:30 the 13-year old son of M. Andrus of Ora, was seriously shot through the right thigh, the hall passing through the lower part of the scrotum and out through the left leg. B. Andrus, uncle of the boy, was fool ing with a 30-30 Winchester and accidentally discharged it. The accident oc curred at the sheep camp and the boy was in bed v et. The wounded lad was brought in to Dr. Harshbarger's office, where Dr. Middleton assisted Dr. Harsh - barger in dressing the wound. There is not much chance for the boy to recover as blood poisoning may set in at any time. If this can be prevented there is some hope for recovery. Bates Acquitted. ! ! i The case of the State of Idaho j against Thomas Bates is attracting | the attention of quite a large 1111111 j her of our people. A short time j ago one Charles H. Foster, a resi | dent of Teton Basin, made and filed a complaint in the Probate court, ! charging Mr. Bates with the larceny i of two sheep. Not having time to ! prepare his defense and secure the attendance of his witnesses, Mr., 1 Bates was unable and therefore 1 made no defense at the preliminary examination, and he was held to I answer the charge made against him by Foster, The charge against Mr. Bates grew ont of a dispute as to the ; ; ownership of two sheep. Foster claimed the sheep belonged to him and Mr. Bates claimed the sheep were his property, and would not permit Foster to take the sheep out his» herd. Mr. Bates' arrest ! followed upon the above mentioned ; j charge. Shortly after the date of the above preliminary examination, Foster instituted a replevin suit for the recovery of the two sheep in dispute. The case was tried and the jury brought in a verdict. for the defendant. Mr. Bates, find ing that the sheep were his pro trial of this ; of j j ! perty. During the trial of case the testimony disclosed the fact that on the 7th day of January, 1904, Samuel Kunz, Jr., in the presence of Foster, offered to settle the dispute over the two sheep if Mr. Bates would pay over the sum of $1,500 or turn over 500 head of sheep. And it is said that there are quite a large number of people who believe that the claim to these two sheep was made in order to lay the foundation fora criminal charge against Mr. Bates and to secure the sum of $1,500 or 500 head of sheep from him to settle the same. It is gratifying to the friends of Mr. Bates to know that he refused to pay the money or to turn over the sheep. Mr. Bates lias resided iu Fremont county for about eighteen years and won the reputation of being an honest, honorable and upright man and his many friends will he pleased to hear of his prompt acquittal of the offense charged against him In Foster. E. M. Holden was attorney "for Mr. Bates and visited the Basin i last week for the purpose of trying the suit. ■ to the are FOR SALE AT ONCE, easy terms, 160 acres, 1 miles from Sugar City.
