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. Fair Plat. 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. ROBSBT HaHCOCK.

It was a current rumor that the ne groes in Jail at Henderson for murdering roadmaster Stevers would be brought here and put in the penitentiary for safe keeping. So far this step has not been taken. It is said that the Henderson people are vexed at the calling out of the troops to guard the jail and say It waa unnecessary.

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. It la happy thoughta to think of some of the put, but there is many a person who wishes they could blot out a few things of It. "Let the dead past bury Its dead." After the electric ; storm and rain, Ice cream, sherbet and cake were served, Then all looked for their sleeping quar ters. All report as having a very nice time. -..'
