The Republicans', of IJ.itcs coun

Butler last Saturday. At the hour
designated in the call W. F. Duvrtll,
chairman of the county central com
mittee, called the convention to or

which the call was made. The
committee suggested the name of R
F. Harper, of Charlotie' township,

The report was adopted.
The chair announced that as the
committee on credentials had re.
ported, the next matter in order was
the selection of the assistant secre
taries. Geo. 1 Huckeby was nom
inated, but declined. O. D." Austin
and W. O. Atkeson were (lien
pressed into service.
The committee on resolutions then
submitted their rcpoit, strongly en
dorsing the principles of the Repub
lican party as set out in the platform
of the national convention ; the ad
ministration and nomination ol
Theodore Roosevelt for president;
the nomination of Charles W. Fair
banks for vice-piesident ; denounc
ing Democratic methods in this
state and demanding home mle for
our cities and larger town, and
civic purity in public affairs.
A motion for the adoption of the
resolution as rend, was made and
At this point the following reso.
lution was offered as an liiiieuJment
to the resolution, to-wit:
'We oppose the conduct or cull
trol of our party affairs by fcdctal
officeholders, and agree with our
great leader, President Roosevelt,
that our national and state conven

not be composed of federal cilice

We, therefore, as Republicans of
the party in this county, instruct
rill delegates selected nt this conven
tion today to either of the state con
ventions to cast their votes in said
conventions and in all meetings of
snid delegates against and use their
influence against the election of any
individual to any of the honorary
positions ot the party that now holds
an appointive office under the fedir
at government, and as well as any
individual that they may have good
reason to believe is the tool of those
whe are attempting to form a com
bination or machine to control fed
eral patronage in this state.
As soon as the resolution was
read, Hon. C. A. Denton arose to
advocate its adoption and pleased
the friends of the resolution greatly.
Geo. P. Huckeby opposed the in
troduction of the resolution as tend-;
ing to create division among the
Bates county Republicans to no
good purpose, and weakening them
in the future at home, in the district
and in the state. His speech was
plentifully punctuated with applause
and pleased those oppofed to divis
ion in the party.
B. F. Wix heartily endorsed the
sentiment or the resolution in a
speech and an anecdote.
A viva voce vote was then taken
on the adoption of the amendment,
and the chair decided it was adopt
ed. Mr. Hales, ot Osage, called for
a division. The chair decided a
division could not be had as the
chair had already announced the re
sult. Mr. Hales then appealed to
the house. The chair was sustained
by a vote of S3 for, to Sj against

The next order was the selection
of delegates, to the state convention
at St. Joseph. The townships pre
pared their ballots with the result
that the following names wete se
lected: Dr. J. R. Colson, W. P.
Sargent, O. D. Austin, Joe Whin
ery, W. P. Hall, Geo. P. Huckeby
Henry Moudy and J. W. Bobbett.
The following wete elected to the
judicial convention at Jefferson City:
A. J. Smith, J. R. Hales, Geo. P.
Huckeby, Geo. Templeton and R.
W. Barton. Delegates to the St.
Joseph convention were also in
structcd to use all honorable means
to secure the election of J. B, Egger
of St. Clair county as one of the
members of the slate committer
from the 6th district. The business

got the delegates.

as a good man for the Republicans
to nominate for sheriff.

mighty small potatoes and few in

vention. The Republican County Con
vention for the nomination of a
county ticket is just one month off
and it is time the people were
looking around for candidates.
The Republicans want a live ac

for Representaiive and a man, too
that can "see as far through a
millstone as the nun that picked

same measurement. In this fight
there should be no dummies, but
live active teal men.
