The Jiepiiblicati StaN convention
met in Kileigh, on Thursday, May 3 4.
The event brought together the lar

twenty years in this State. "Every

looking body of men as a whole. How
ever, the discoverer who might have
been seeking a very line looking body
of men would have oasscd on and taken
the chances 1" discovering it else
During the two days on which the
convention met at various hours, the
body was at times noisy, demonstra
tive and turbulent, but there was
nothing of the mob about it. Aside
from the occasional outbursts of vocif
eration and applause for the various
candidates, the business of the con
vention was conducted in order. This
does not mean, however, that all the
business transacted could be consider
ed altogether fair and honest by an ob
server of the proceedings.
The convention was called to order
by State Chairman llolton at noon on
Thursday. All the counties except
Cherokee and Macon were represent
ed. There were contesting delega
tions from Craven, Cumberland, Edge
combe, franklin, Mecklenburg, Per
quimans, Union, Wake, Wilkes and
Wilson. The contests in each of these
cases were between supporters of Col.
O. H. Dockery and Judge D. S. Rus

the gubernatorial nomination.

dispose of these contested cases, and

When the speaking was concluded
the convention adjourned until 10
o'clock Friday morning.
The contested cases from the coun
ties heretofore named bad been the
subject of much work by the creden
tials committee. They began their la
bors on Thursday afternoon about three
o'clock. They worked away till half
past two o'clock on Friday morning
and had not then gotten through.
They were at it again on Friday morn
ing by I ::t0 o'clock, and it was soon un
derstood that they would be ready to
report by 12 o'clock at latest. Around
the work of this committee hangs a
story that tells how the final result of
the convention was achieved. There
were from the contesting counties
thirty-four delegates contesting. After
the committee had completed their
work, their report showed that they
recommended seating eighteen Dock
ery delegates and sixteen Russell del
egates. Rut while they were working
up this report, there was other work
going on on the outside.
It was apparent that among all the
gubernatorial candidates Col. Dockery
had the strongest following, and it
was possible that if the Dockery men
from the contestieg counties or the
would not Bupporta free silver cand
idate for the Presidency, and he
should not do so if heieally believes
that free comago would ruin the
country, because a man's duty to
his country is higher than hi duty
to his partv. Whenever we tpeak
of nominating a silver man we are
told that he would lose the votes t f

composed of eight Dockery men and
one Russell man; Wheeler Martin be
ing the Russell supporter.
The "disorganizer" element and
chronic disturbers, which are to be
found to a greater or less extent in
every meeting, seemed to be held well
in hand by Chairman llolton on this
occasion. One "yaller" fool from some
where jumped up and wanted to "ask
for information." He wanted to know
what right the chairman had to ap
point this committee before the con
vention gave it to him. The laugh at
this fellow's combined brass and igno
rance was so great that he was thor
oughly squelched, and he was not
heard irom again during the two day's
The chairman then suggested that
the convention adjourn till 4 o'clock
p m. in order that the credentials
committee might report to the conven
tion. The suggestion of the chairman was
responded to by loud calls for Senator
Iritchard. He came forward and
urged that the suggestion to adjourn
be complied with, saying he would be
glad to speak to the convention later.
The convention then adjourned till
four o'clock.
