THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO. TUESDAY, APRIL 15, 1884.
3 Concluded on Third Page. and several St. Louis delegates to the coh vention were "snowed under" Col. R H. Hunt, of Kansas City, re publican candidate for major in the lale municipal election, is in the city. Major H. R. W. Hartwig, the newly elected republican tnayoi of St. Joseph, is in the city. He is for "harmony." Cliff Saunders, of the Globe Democrat, reached the city yesterday to :Id Walter B. Stevens in reporting the convention. N. J. Chryster and V, J. .Norman, of Independence were nazers upon the struggle for the supremacy in the political arena. It was through no fault of the dele gates from Jasper county that a cog was not put in the wheel of the convention. Mr. Louis Hammerslough, the far famed clothing merchant of Kansas City, whose name throughout the west, is a household world, is in attendace at the convention. Capt. J. H. Turner, editor and proprie tor of the Carroll ton Record, and "one of the finest," is a participant in the republi can love feast. Alex Webb, special correspondent of the St Louis Republican, is here reporting in excellent style the convention for "the old reliable." It was generally observed that the best looking and brainiest men occupying seats cn the stage of the opera house, belonged to the press gang. The Globe-Dpmcrat of yesterday says "The Sedalia Press club has parlors at the Jay Gould hotel, and an efficient reception committee is on duty." T. B. Bullene, ex-mayor of Kansas City, and the head of the great firm of Bullene, Moores & Emery, was one of the notables in attendance at the convention. From the evidence given before the committee on credentials yesterday there was some very dirty work in the conven tions which sent delegates to the state convention. "It is a good day's work," said a Van Hornite to his chief as the convention was abouf to adjourn last night. ''Indeed it is," said the greai Van quisher of Filley, with a beaming smile. Ben. C Eaton, associate editor of the Kansas City Evening Star, and one of the smartest young journalists in the west, is reporting the convention for that enter prising paper. A country delegate remarked to a Bazoo reporter thai he had come to the convention for the purpose of putting down boss rule, and that he took his hat and lit out when Filley went on to the platform. The summary manner in which C. H. Tandy, the colored orator was squelched yesterday w.ll doubtless serve to keep alive mation of persons for delegates to the Chi cago convention. The nominees were Gen. Odin Guitar of Boone county, Judae W S. Sherk of Pettis county, A. C. Widdicombe of Cooper county an I C. R. Simpson of Morgan county. The vote was as follows : Shirk Benton 4.

Several ladies occupied seats in the family circle yesterday and listened to the silver-tongued oratory of Hon. Jno. B. Henderson. Yesterday while Judg Krum was in the chair, a delegate from the Eieyenth district very courleousy inquired of the chair when the committee on credentials would meet? "Immediately if not soon er" said the presiding officer of the con vention, very abruptly. The visiting journrlists found the latch string of the Jay Gould hotel nut, and the timely and kindly proffer of Mes sers. Devereatix and L?winan to the par lors of that excellent h tel, press headquar ters during the convention, will be long re membered gratefully. Yesterday while the committee on cre dentials was making up a report at the city hall there was considerable noise. The chair stated that there must be less noise and suggested as Judge Krum was present to take the spectators away and make them a speech. 4 ii you want to clear the room let him make a speech here," said one of the committee ironically. The election of Major William War ner, of Kansas City, as chairman of the State Central committee of the republican party of Missouri was one eminently tit to be made. As a successful parly leader, an impassioned, magnetic speaker, having the rare ability to sway assemblages lo en thusiasm and feryor by his almost magic power as an oiator, and as a shrewd, level headed and sagacious man of the people, Major "Warner has few rivals and no su perior within the borders of this great state. He will fill his responsible posi tion most creditably, and the Bazoo doubts not that further honors at the hands of his party are in store for this distin guished gentleman. THE SIDE SHOW! C.

Bitten by a Mad Dog. A little colored bov about ten years of age. residing on the farm of B. F. Gillum, near Montserrat, was bi'ten on Sunday last by a rabid dog.
