Bayboro, July 2. -The Republican
County Convention of Pamlico was held
Saturday for the appointment of dele

organization gives a county convention
23 votes. 17 were present of whom 12
were anti-organization, thus showing a
clear majority if all had been present.
Yet they generously gave Mr. Adams
one delegate. It is not so much anti
Adamsasitis anti-Duncan boss rule.

Greensboro, June 30. Republican
State Chairman Adams has returned
from Washington in apparent good spir
its oxer the result of his trip. He had no
trouble whatever in securing the ap
pointment of his recommendation for a
collector at the port of New Bern and
seems gratified that Secretary of the
Navy Taf t has consented to come and
make an address before the Republi
can State Convention here on July 10th.
A letter from the Secretary this morn
ing brings the information that he
will reach Greensboro on the night of
Judere Adams has written to United
States Circuit Judge Pritchard United
States Di trict Judges Boyd and Pur
nell andEx -Superior Court Judge W. P.
Bynum, requesting them togo to Wash
ington on the 8th and act as a commit
tee of escort to Secretary Taft on his
visit to the State.
Chairman Adams seems confident of
his re-election as chairman of the com
mittee by ilia State Convention. When
he first accepted the poaition, he stated
that he was not going to make any ef
fort to secure votes from any county in
the 8th Congressional District, if Black
burn was a candidate for the chairman
ship. In spite of that position, he says
that in view of the great parade Black
burn's forces are making of the en
dorsements he has secured t hi fact is
that, he,' Adams, will get more votes
for chairman from Blackburn's Con
gressional District than Blackburn will
get from ali other parts of the State,
There is some comment here over the
failure of the Industrial News this
moming to have any report of one Re
publican Convention in Mecklenburg
yesterday, when Blackburn was en
dorsed for chairman. ' The Greensboro
Telegram and all othrmorning papers
had the news, which precludes the idea
that there was a cyclone inMecklenburg
which broke down the wires.
Activity still prevails in local Repub
lican circles among the Adams and
Blackburn factions over securing dele
gates favorable to the one or the other
to the county meeting called for July
7th. It is said that Judge Bynum hav
ing finally positively refused to allow
any use of his name complimentary or
otherwise in connection witn dun-
fords endorsement for the chair
manship the Blackburnites are now
determined to get . endorsement
of Guilford out and out for Black
burn as against Adams. There is a
well grounded rumor afloat that the
Adams forces will when convention as
sembles, pull out from support of
Blackburn and Harris and support fcx-
Attornev General Z. V. Walser of Lex
ington and carry the convention by
storm. As against Adams it is said
Walser would command the support
of the Holton as well as the Blackburn-
Harris influences, it being well known
that both Holton and Blackburn voted
for Walser to succeed Rollins, when
