DODGE CITT TOWNSHIP We would say to the convention that no contest except in Bodge City, that there is a miiundcrstanding regarding the authority to call or fix the time for .oting in said noting precinct, that concluding that the Republican Central Committee Committee of said township has the authority. They utterly failed to fix the time and prounlgatc the thing by publishing a notice in any newspaper or by posting printed or written circulars in cay place within the limits of eaid precinct, that the only evidence that thia committee has i a certificate certificate attached to their credential, but promulgated published or otherwise made know n to the Republican Republican voter' of raid township. That the Republican Republican commits c of said township are generally of gross negligence to such a a extent that their acts convince your committee that their intention waa not to piomoto the interests of the Republican voters of taid tow nbhip; that no piopcr list of otcis handed to jour committee. That a list compri-ing 135otes wan handed us, that the friends of said ticket concluded toyonr committee, upon examination made in presence of jpji committee, committee, that said list contained the names of a large number of persons who openly afiilintedwith the Dsmocratic yartj, including delegates to the Democratic convention. That six of the hundred and thiriy-tix votes were cast for the conte&tirg delegation. That the delegation claiming seals in this convention convention by reason of said election as heard by P. G. Reynolds. That the contesting delegation headed by G. S. Emerson claims to be elected by rcaton of one hundred and thirteen a otes cast in arothcr and different place without the authority pretended or real of any member of the Repablican cammittee save the chairman of the county committee, by a conversation had between baid chairman and one E. D. Swan upen some points which said gentleman gentleman diflVr by reason of which conversation, the raid Swan caused the notices attached to these credentials .0 be published in the Times and Cow Boy of this city, which wa the only pretended authority, authority, on w hich raid ote-i v. ere cast. And w hile j our committee believe that many good Republicans Republicans -voted at both of said polls, jet by reason of the culpable negligence of members of said township township committee in failing to designate any proper plac?, and they believe they had the power in ilxing the hoars in v. hici. e?id polls should open and cloe and giving prop-rand reasonable notice to the Rc-peblican Rc-peblican voters when o many different ways and means were in their power to use on the one hand, and the apparent intention to thwart the designs designs of the Central Committee on the other hand; no fair expression of the Republicans of said tow nsihip was had. We hereby transmit to the convention all papers delivered to us from any source for our consideration and recommend that neither of said delegations have seats or participate participate in this convention, all of which is respectfully respectfully submitted.
