The event brought together the lar gest number of people that has atten ded a -ii vent ion of Jhi.s party in twenty years in this State. "Every white Republican of any prominence. n Xorth Carolina, or who has had any prominence at any time since the war and is still living, seemed to be pres ent. Men whose names have been, are, arid would be associated with some ollice, eitber State or national. were in ample evidence in the gather-! in i,'. As a matter of course the conven tion was "spotted." The fair faces of the Anglo-Saxon alternated with the multi-colored hues of the men of Afri can descent. Hut it was not a bad 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 where. 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 sell, the two leading candidates for the gubernatorial nomination. lneurst business was, of course to dispose of these contested cases, and 41ret riraaure. I''r the ('uucasiau.l Shawvillk, N.

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.

Let all tho people see where we are at ! and, my word for it, the voters will vote our ticket. I thank my stais that we have ollicial call for the convention, Chair man llolton announced the committee on credentials as follows : C. A. Reynolds, of Forsyth; Geo. H.

Boger, of Cabarrus. This committee, it was alleged, was 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 session. 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.
