Following the completion of tbe
tioket osine the selection of 10 dele
gates to tbe state and eongressional
conventions. At this j ncture the
following resolutions were adopted and
a battle royal was waged on tbe II Kir
for over one bour:
W'llEHEAH, the factional differences
In the Republican party of this county.
have resulted in the laat eight years,
in the election of democrat to all the
political and Important offices; and,
WHKRKAB, the majority of the re.
publican party is so imall in this
conn'y, that it is necessary to have unit
ed and harmonious action in the ail
ministration of party e Hairs, in order
to be suucei'ful at the pills at the com
ing election; therefore;
BE IT RESOLVED, that it is the tin
psrative duty of Ihe delegates In this
convention asaemhled. to lay aside, for
the common party good, all personal
and factional differences and ambitions.
BE IT RKHOLVEI), that we favor
electing a statu and corigreealonsl dele
gstion, selected from the different sec
tions of the county, si cording to the
representation of snch sectlou In this
convention, and that each locality, by
its delegates In this convention make
the seleotion and that such selection be
ratified by this convention.
BE IT RESOLVED, that tbe delega
tion to the state Congressional conven.
tlon, be selected from men of each of
the reeognlsed party factions in equal
proportions, instructed to cast one half
of the vote of this county for erntrse-
ni an Williamson, and one half ol said
vote for ex-congressman Moody. :
Here it was demonstrated what a
thoroughly organised minority may
aoomplish. Tbe Williamson forces an
der the leadership of j w Knowles, F
S Ivanboe, Q M Rlchey, H B Oavana
and others in tbe interests ol bat mony
pleaded for a divided delegation and
tbe result of tbe vote on a motion to
lay the resolution on tbe table shows
how nearly tbey succeeded. Tbe vote
to lay on table 46, opposed 41, blank
votes 6. Tbe leaders on the floor who
opposed the resolution were J A Good
brod, J F Baker, and K w Bartlett
who took the position that an in
structed divided delegation would
have no standi igor influence in the
conventions. ,
; Following the tabling of tbe resolu
tions came the election of 10 delegates
to tbe state and congressional con
ventions resulting In tbe selection ol
tbe following: ;
O E Cochran, 8 O 8wokhamer, Di
0 T Bacon Judd Geer Frank Kllpat
riok jos Nibley j M Craig U G Couoh
U O Mapes and Charles Hug.
Mo instructions were made bui
there is no question but all rill sup
port Mr Moody if bis name is present
ed, while tbe eootrst was presuinsd
to bava been made along tbe Moody
aod Williamson lines tbe prosecuting
attorneyship was no small factor, Tbi
success of tbe Moody men was con
strued to mean anti-Ivauboe. A di
vided de'egation would mean at least
6 delegates for M'. Ivanhoe in tbis
oouniy. The result is now said to
narrow tbe ooi.teat for district attor
ney to Mr Luuiai of ; Union and Mi
Moore of Baker City.
Cbaa K Cochran as a result ol his
ruling on ail questions was unani
mously elected chairman of the coun
ty ceotral committee and the effici ni
8-rvinea of tbe past made w B Sargentn
election as secretary likewise uuani
moua. After Ilia nominations for preoinot
ulficers aud committeemen and the
vote of thanks for the careful consid
eration of the convention at the bands
of the good oitisns of Elgin the oon
voution adjourned. ' They did a good
days work, placed a good tieket in tbe
field, one that every republican oan
an J will support uezt June.
