WILLIAM R. COX,
Some time previous to the holdin

Ricoi;i urired that the

fore any county could send as many
delegates as wished to attend, and
hence our conventions became too
largo and unwieldy, but hereafter
each county can only s.-:id t ::e th le
gato for every three huinlml Demo
cratic votes cast in the preceding
(lubernatniial election, and one dele
gate for fractions over one hundred
and fifty. This will give every county
its proportionate repre-dilation, mid
by limiting the number of delegates
greater care will be taken in th. ir se
lection, so that our conventions will
be more deliberative in their character
and orderly iu their proceedings.
In regard to changing votes on a
ballot the Committee has prescribed
that "after a vole has been cast theie
shall be no change in such vote until
the final result of the ballot shall be
announced." Every person who at
tended our late convention will ad
mit the wisdom of this. When the
linjne of tl county is called during the
roll call aud its vote giu-n, it is ctr-
tainly proper to hold that county to
