In the democratie representaüve convention it is stated on Rood authority that the delegates from Lyndon, Sylvan, etc., agreed to vote for John V. N. Gregory for representative in considcration of the Scio and Iima delegates turning in for Howlett for clerk. Wcll, the Lima and Scio men keptlheir part of the agreement and Howlett was nominated. But as soon as the representative convention met the Howlett delegates who had carried their point left Gregory out In the cold, and turned iu for Manly. What cared they as long as "Howlett's nomination was equivalent to an election?"
