gress by the republican convention
here today. No other name was
presented. L. T. Harris of Lane
was here with his friends te con
test for honors with Hermann, but
last night it became evident that it
would be futile to carry the fight
into the convention. Harris was
short of votes.
When A. C. Masters of Douglas
placed in nomination, the Hon.
Binger Hermann, A. C. Woodcock
of Eugene, law partner of Mr.
Harris moved that the secretary
be instructed to cast the vote of
the convention for Mr. Hermann.
In seconding Mr. Woodcock's mo
tion, E. Hofer said that last year
when Marion county went into the
convention with a candidate it's
delegates bowed to the wishes of
Lane county and took Mr. Her

Marion to take him again. ,
