la Unjust Report Corrected.
Xditob Jouxkil. In reporting the
action of the Republican convention,
held la thla County on the list Inst, the
correspondent for the Raleigh Post hi
given aa Inaccurate and garbled state
ment of the proceedings which unan
swered might to great Injustice to the
parties concerned. The young man was
evidently In Ignorance ot the fact when
he sent In his "special" or else he ob
tained his Information from his bosses
S. W. Hancock postmaster and Robert
Hancock, money order clerk, through
whose effort largely ha obtained the
position he occupies a letter carrier, all
of that portion of the communication re
ferring to a free fight, etc, la a misrep
resentation coming from soma one's
fertile Imagination. No one was ex
pelled from the floor of the convention
and not a blow waa passed. The facta
are that the regular delegatea seeing
that Robert Hancock who had usurped
the function of County Chairman, with
the aid of . his black secretary, W. W.
Lawrence totally Ignored them and rec
ognized only hi bogus delegatea, and
hia eon, B. W. Hancock. They, then
withdrew from the Opera House to
Stanly Hall where they organised, elect
ed delegatea to the several conventions
and paased resolution endorsing the ad-
iclnlstratlsn of President Rooeevelt, and
Senator Pritchard, etc.
The following are the name of the
white men who refused to be bossed by
Robert Hancock and his minions from
the Post office.
I W Toler, W R Knox, G L Toler,
Charles Tripp, W K Rowe, JohnGatlln
J A Morton, R P Williams, R O Eehoe,
John U Smith, Capt A C Thompson, J
W Smith, W R Dixon and W T Weeks.
While the white men who remained
at the Opera House were the Hancocks,
father and son,, the Biddies, father and
two sons, the sons being employed at
the post office. The Hancocks with two
others holding bogus credentials from
the negro wards of the city and county
precincts where noa primary meetings
had been held.
The 4lh ward, Bern precinct, and
Pleasant . Hill precinct were the only
ones represented by colored delegates,
from this It will be seen that it was the
white delegates that refused to be bossed
by Hancock & Son.the colored delegatea
forming a minority of those who left the
Opera House for Stsnly Hall.
Answer to Fair Play's,Correctlon of
"An Unjust Report"
Editor Journal The article In your
Sunday's Issue headed "An Unjust Re
port Corrected" and signed "Fair Play"
should have have been signed An Un
mitigated Liar as the entire article was
a tissue of lies from beginning to the
ending. Mr. Thos. C. Daniels who rep
resents the Morning Post, received no
information from Hr. 8. W. Hancock or
myself, when "Fair Play" say that Mr.
Danlela largely obtained hla position In
the Post Office through the efforts of B.
W. Hancock and myself, he aimply lies,
Every man In the elty knows Mr Danlela
obtained hla position through the Hon.
Charles R. Thomas who had the exclu
sive appointment of the carriers In the
New Bern Post Office from the eligible
list of the Civil Service.
When your correspondent says I
usurped the functions of chairman, and
that I Ignored the regular delegatea,only
recognizing the bogus delegatea, he 1 an
Infamous liar. Ioalled each preclnct
and appointed the committee on creden
tials as the credentials were handed to
me, appointing one from each precinct,
and one from each of the contesting de
legations. The committee brought la a
unanimous report, which waa adopted
by a unanimous vote In the convention,
Hahn then called upon hia friends to
follow him to 8tanley Hall and they left
the convention. .Tp."1' ", ; ('
, Mr. W. B. Dixon informed me before
the convention met that he had decided
not to attend the convention as he had
not fully made up his mind aa to hi ac
tion during the coming campaign that
he was a populist and until aome action
by hla State leaders waa had he would
not align himself with any other party;
Mr. L. H. Outlaw from Dover and W. T
Week both populists would have acted
with ua but tor the Intervention ot 3. S,
Batnlght and W. H, Smith populist who
prevailed, upon them not to do ao. They
did not attend the convention and after
wards told me they did not attend
Hahn'a meeting. Mr. Joseph A. Morton
of Taylor precinct was not In the city,
He sent me word by Mr. G. A. Connor
that hla wife waa sick Mr. Connor cast
ing hi vote for him, I do not known J,
W. Smith, no such name appearing upon
any of the credentials either regular or
bogus. The delegate remaining In the
convention represented Fort Barnwell,
Dover, Core Creek, Taylors, Thnrman,
Berne, .Tisdale and Jaaper precinct,
Second, Third and Fourth Ward, New
Bern, N. C. all white delegates,' Maple
Cypress and Lee's Farm precincts not
being represented. ' We have seventeen
precinct la the county fifteen were
represented In the convention. The delft
gates that left with Hahn represented
Vanceboro, Truttls, Pleaaant Hill and
the First Ward of New Bern. The
Pleasant , Hill delegatea being colored
and controlled , by Hahn'a messenger
Ham. The entire trouble waa brought
on by Hahn aa soon . a ha found out he
could not control the convention. He
had hla tool and henohmen ' Ham and
O'Harato work up colored contesting
delegates In the fourth ward and Berne
preclnotlalthough he had agreed that
we should hate white delegata from
every precinct la Ue county, He kas
never been known to keep any ot hla
political agreement U they - interfered
with his own suooeaa. . .
Sin oe writing . the above I understand
Meyer Hahn la the author , of the Fair
Play article and I with it understood
that the statements made by me apply
to him, In full force.

August, 28. A pleasant Lawn Party
was given last evening on the Court
house lawn by the Epworth League and
' Bright Jewels. The evening was enjoy
edbyjJlr Everything was artistically
arranged. The glowing lights of the
several lanterns, snd the reflection of
them on the many beautiful faces of the
girls gave light to the opposite sex and
to the whole lawn.
About nine o'clock an electric storm
came up and the pleasure seekers had to
take refuge in the Court house. They
were pleasure-bent, and it was found
anyway in the Court house.
The Bright Jewels seemed to enjoy it
very much running and playing. They
played one interesting game "rabbit in
the pea-patch" which .brought sweet
memories and fond recollections of the
by-gone-days to the elderly ones who
sat looking en thinking of the .days
when they were just in the bloom of
girl-hood and boy-hood.
