Nominated for Judge.
The Republicans held their annual

Recorder-Fbillp J. Richards. Nantl-

Surveyor-Edward H. Post. Wilkes
Barre. Geographically, the ticket li i not
strong, but In other ways It Is. There
was a number of vicious fights for place
In the convention for places on the
ticket, but later harmony prevailed,
and there was considerable enthusiasm
over the ticket. Hiutleton and Plttston
ore sore at being; left off the ticket, but
all differences wlU probably be settled
' The Judicial convention was held In
the Ninth Regiment armory and all the
arrangements had been perfected so
that It formed even a better place for
a meeting of this sort than iMualo hull.
The great amount of room kept the
house from getting too warm, and the
hall was divided by a rope over which
o squad of police kept watch. On the
upper side no one was allowed to come
except the delegates, officers and mem
bers of the press.. On the other side
of the rope, seats were placed for tho
spectators, admission to the armory be
ing free. Around the balcony the
American colors were hung, with pic
tures of Blaine, Lincoln, Hastings, Ly
ons, Harrison and other great (Republi
can leaders. The coolness and the
great amount of room made the armory
an Ideal place to hold a convention.
The Judicial convention was called to
order at 10 o'clock by County Chairman
R. P, Robinson, and the Beoretary,
Walter Koons, began the roll call.
Nominations for temporary chairman
were then called for, and .H. A. Fuller
was nominated and elected by accla
mation. Dr. Dodson, of Nantlcoke, and
William Connor were appointed a com
mittee to escort iMr. Fuller to the plat
form. Mr. Fuller made one of his usual bril
liant addresses. He said that he was
'heartily glad 'that bis election was
unanimous, which he took, not as honor
to himself, but as a desire for harmony
In the make-up of the ticket. He said
he came here from the practice of the
law and would go back to It after the
convention, as would probably some of
the candidates for judge. The other of
ficers of the convention were then ap
pointed as follows:
Vice Presidents First district, John
MeCoven; Second, S. H. Dodson; Third,
W. D. Wllklns; Fourth, R. H. Patterson;
Fiftih, Theron Dowpal; Sixth, John Bars.
Committee on Contested Seats First, O.
A. St John; Second. W. B. Creton; Third,
Oeorge F. Nesbitt Fourth, J. L. Williams;
Fifth, James M. jioyd; Sixth, J. W. Clark.
Secretaries Wl B. Koons. James J.

CirnKtta onl Organisation First, 8. A.
-Saoharach; Second, P. H. Seeley; Third,

James Giles; Sixth, George E. Cresy.
Tellers WrIHam Ritter, C. Taylor, A.
W. House, Thoron Birkbeck, F. F. Reding
ton, W. Ray Straw.
It was then, moved by Mr. Bacharach.
of WIlkes-Barre, that the temporary
organization be made permanent. This
was carried without a dissenting vote.
The chairman called for notices of con
tested seats, but there were none, and
the meeting proceeded directly to busi
ness. Mr. Fuller then spoke of the Import
ance and seriousness of the judicial
nomination, and spoke of Judge Rice,
'Whose name brought out thunders of
applause. The chief difficulty In the
choice of a man to fill the vacancy
caused iby Judge 'Rice's elevation to
the superior court bench Is the em
barassment of riches, an embarassment
from which our friend the enemy sel
dom suffers. Mr. Fuller urged the dele
gates to go about this matter of nom
inating a judicial candidate, not as a
matter of politics, but as a matter of
business. Lay aside personal iprefer
ence, questions of location, etc., and
vote for the man who Is best qualified
for the position, and at the polls next
November be will be chosen.
The chairman then called for nomina
tions iter Judge, and George Urquhart,
jr., of the Seventh ward, WIlkes-Barre,
then nominated George S. Ferris, of
Plttston, for the judgeship. He, too,
Bpoke of the importance oif electing a
man of legal attainments, of judicial
temper, and a man of conscience sensi
tive to duty, but above all his' aim must
be to Interpret the law fearlessly and
vigorously. Few men measure up to
this standard, but Mr. Ferris does, and
he 'Should be the next Judge, He has
theeocumen to discover the legal points
of the case, and the courage to use his
knowledge. His practice has been a
large one throughout his whole career,
and In twenty years' experience at the
bar, there lias not been a case from his
vicinity In which he has not been coun
sel. He la' a man whom to know Is
to honor, and bad the Plttston people
their way be would be on the supreme
bench. After being defeated last year
In the convention be worked for the
successful candidate, and now he asks
for this nomination, and his career,
both as lawyer and Republican, de
mands this recognition.
Thomas H. Atherton in a brief speech
nominated Lyman H. 'Bennett, whose
name was received with applause, last
ing several minutes. George H. Trout
man, of Hazleton, was nominated by
Dr. H. B. Casselberry, of that city.
The speaker urged the location of his
candidate and the necessity of Hazle
ton seourrns; a resident Judge. (Mr.
Troutman's name was also well re
ceived, and 'Ed Carpenter, of the Fourth
ward, placed in nomination the name
of General Edwin S. Osborne, of
Wllkes-JJarre. A motion was then made
to drop the lowest candidate after .the
first ballot, but Dr. Oasselbury rose to
a paint of order, and the motion was
declared out. The ballot was then
taken with this result:

the decision was received with a yell
and loud applause. The chair appoint
ed Mr. Urquhart, Dr. Casselberry and
J. R. Errltt a committee to find Mr.
Bennett and escort aim to the plat
form. 'Mr. Bennett expressed his thanks to
the convention for the nomination, and
said that he was surprised to And how
many friends he had in the county. He
pledged himself to give his best work
to the people of the county during the
campaign, and if elected, during tola
incumbency as Judge. The Judicial con
vention then adjourned sine die.
THE COUNTY CONVENTION.
The county convention met dh-eetly
after the adjournment of the Judicial

The afternoon session of the county

Vice Presidents and Tellers Those of

Mr. Hand was escorted to the plat
form by J. Bennett Smith and Rees
Morgan. 'Mr. Hand said In his speech
that he had been a Republican for thir
ty years and this was about the only
honor he had ever had from the party.
But he was satisfied, and asked nothing
more. Mr. Hand then laid down rules
of order and for the first time of the
day reduced the crowd to quiet.
The committee on contested sputa re

ot tne mtn ward, Plttston, which re
port whs adopted. The committee on

chair called for nominations for sheriff.
opeecnes were limited to three minutes,
and Q. K. Powell, of WIlkes-Barre,
nominated Stephen D. Tost, of Sugar
loaf, for sheriff. It is the duty of the
convention to nominate the strongest
man, and in the past when the party
was hard pressed he has given of his
time and money liberally to the cause.
Mr. Tost Is a man who has for the past
twenty years stood firm In the Republi
can ranks, and has never asked any
favors of the party. He comes from
the great lower end, which demands
recognition from the party for the hun
dreds of votes In Uiat section. This
section must have a place on the ticket,
and the Republicans of Luzerne would
honor themselves and strengthen their
ticket by nominating Mr. Tost.
G. J. Clark, of Luzerne borough, said
that he represented a man, who, three
years ago, had tried for the nomina
tion for sheriff and bad failed. He
turned In and tried his best to elect
his successful opponent. iNow he. comes
before you and tries again for the nom
ination, and It should be given where
It belongs, to E. Walton Garrison, of
Shlckshinny. Mr. Garrison's nomina
tion was seconded by Harrison Dodson,
Dr. Dodson, of Nantlcoke, nominated
John S. Deltrlck, of Nantlcoke, John V.

then learned for tne nrst time mat ma
name was before the convention for
recorder. Now he had returned and
withdrew In favor of Mr. Richards, be
lieving that It would be to the best In

HORSE MEAT FOR FOOD.
An Oregon Firm Opons I'p a Now Kind of
Portland, Oregon, Aug. 6. The prob
lem of what to do with the thousands
of horses on the western ranges ren
dered valueless by the electric car and
the bicycle has been solved by the erec
tion cf an establishment for the packing
of horse meat at Llnnton, on the Wil
lamette fTveir, a few miles below this
city. For a year past horses have been
a drug on the market. Stockmen who
have made a business of raising them
on the ranges and have bnnds contain
ing several thousand, find that their en
tire stock Is valueless. The animals
are threatened with a sad fate next
winter should it be a severe one, as
stockmen will not waste feed on a use
A number of business men carefully
Investigated the subject and then or
ganized the Western Packing and Fer
tilizing company and built abattoirs
and a packing house nt Llnnton. They
purchased i.OOO horses from a plngle
range owner In eastern Washington,
and the first train load of these has ar
rived and the work of converting them
Into meat has commenced. The plant
consists of a lnrge tank for steaming
the fat out of the meat, a number of
smaller tanks, two vertical digesters or
retorts, n oil press, a kiln heated by
steam for drying the bones, a bone
crusher, a grinder and a 'boiler and en
gine. At present no effort Is made to
can this meat. The only portion -prepared
for food Is tho hams, which are
pickled for export.
None of the carcass Is sold fresh, and
no horse meat can be had for use here.
The hams are Intended for the F.uro
pean market, where the custom of eat
ing equine flesh has already been estab
lished. The bulk of the carcass Is con
verted Into oil and fertilizer. What
this beginning may lead to In the way
of putting canned horse meat upon the
market Is uncertain. The prejudice
against It, founded chiefly upon senti
ment, In this country would seem to
offer but little hope of such an article
meeting with a ready sale.
