A Lexington special last week to the Nashville American says: "The Republican executive com mifteeof the Eighth Congressional District met in Lexington to-day, with every couuty represented. The committee called a Congressiona convention to meet at Lexington on April 18 to select two delegates anc two alternates to the national lie publican convention. The committee also adopted resolutions endorsing Hon. John E. McCall for delegate at large for West Tennes see to the national convention, and recommended him to all the other counties of the State by a unani mous vote. This unanimous action of the committee is "considered by Mr. McCall's friends as a complete knockout for Mr. Jeffreys' aspira tions, since both men reside in the Eighth Congressional District, as showing the sentiment in the sev eral counties."
