Lexington, N. Cune 29, 1878.
The county convention which met here
to-day was a large aiid harmonious one.
A. H. Ken del was chosen for the Senate,
and Jtio. II. Miller and S. A. Mock for the
Lower House. All the old county officers
were ttuauiioously re-nominated. L)ayid
son county has too much con (ideuce in
hercaudjdates for the Legislature o pledge

Datie County, VC July 2, 1873.
Messrs. Editors : Whether Davie is to
be separated from Rowan in r the comiug
apportionment or not, these South River
butting matches between hobbled dele
gations should be abolished as soon as the
preseut tempest spends itself. (No blame,
however, should attach to delegates, for
want of success, when they go there 'ham
pered with contrary instructions.) The
county conventions could arrange the
matter much better. The right of Davio
to alternate nominations seems to be only
a prescriptive one that must havo origi
nated in the liberality of Rowan. If
Rowan had plainly announced that the
old rule must terminate and a uew one be
made, the matter might have been adjust
ed long; ago. I wai not present at the
convention of 1874, but it appaar from
results that Rbwau broke up the old rule
while professing to act under it. If this
was the case it looks like a blunder on
her part. Iu the recent convention, no
body claimed, iu open session at least,
that the count was to run further back
than the adoption of the new constitution.
Maj. Robbias admitted in 1870 that it was
If Rowan, in convention assembled,
when no man is before the public as a
candidate for the Senate, should propose
to Davie to giVe.4ier one Senator to Row
an's two, I believe it could be ratified in
a Davie convention. It would be too pre
oftterou& for sober mcu to do otherwise
when Rowan has the bit in her own teeth.
Besides this settlement would be based
on riiihtnnd iustice..
But the most speeioua anil, unfair pr6-1
position that l nave yet heard, and the
one that produced the explosion at the
recent convention, was for Rowan to have
two votes to Davie's one. If the people
of Rowan insist upon this arrangement
the people of Davie had as well stay at
home and save their time and ferriage.
But it would bo better for Davie uot to
have another Senator for an indefinite
time to come, than for these political bull
fights to be kept up. Young politicians
are in constant danger of having their
wings clipped, county jealousy is stirred
to n foolith extent, old friends are aliena
ted, conventions are brought into disre
pnte and the best citizens in the land are
in danger of being unconsciously trans
formed into a bull-dozing mob.
As I am not known to the public, I will
not affix my name it can be ascertained
at the Watchman office.

servative party from the couuties of Row

By motion a committee of three from
each county was appointed to decide which
county had the right to name the Senator.
The committee retired and after delib
erating, returned and Mr. Mauney for the
majority reported that Rowan was enti
tled to name the Senator.
The minority reported that, in as much
as the Rowan delegation were not free to
act in case they Rhould be convinced that
Davie had the right to name the Senator,
but were instructed to givo the right of
choico to Rowan they, therefore, enter
their protest to the report ot the majority.
Moved that the report ot the majority
be received. Motiou lost 8 to 7.
By motion reports were tabled.
After much discussion as to the manner
n which the votes should bo cast. Mr.
Mauney moved that Rowan be allowed
22 and Davie 11 votes iu tlie Convention.
Motiou adopted." Messrs. ' J. S. Hender
son and J. C. Foard were put iu nomina
tion and the convention proceeded to bal
lot for Senator.
Rowan cast (2) two votes for Mr. Foard
and twenty (20) for Mr. Henderson. The
Chairman then announced according to
the vote Mr. Henderson had received the
nomination of this Convention.. Davie
couutr not voting. ,
uy permission of the Chairman and
Convention the following protest of
citizens of Rowan county was entered :
"Protest as agreed by the Senatorial
Delegation iir. behalf of the citizens of
Rowan county ' We, a portion of the vo
ters of Rowau county protest against the
actiou of the Rowan delegation : they not
expressing tlie sentiment of the people of
Rowau county: representing only the
wishes of three .townships without regard
to. the wishes of the remaiuing eight,' also
in their action toward Davie county; de
viating from the old and "time honored
practice of casting the vote, voting Rowan
two against one from Davie aml not-being
willing to listen to the wants or wishes
of the voters from various townships pre
sent. Therefore'wo feel ourselves exon
erated from being governed by the action
