An Unusually Harmonious Convention, and a Faultless, Winning Ticket Placed Before the People

Brief Report of the Proceedings

The Republicans of Harrison Township assembled in convention at Clay City, on Saturday afternoon, March 8, 1890, for the purpose of nominating candidates to be voted for at the approaching April election. Daniel Molter, township committeeman, called the house to order, and on motion of the convention, Dr. I. A. Hale was selected to preside over the meeting. After a short address by the presiding officer, W. J. Ward was chosen to act as secretary, and the business of the convention proceeded in due form. It being decided to nominate by ballot vote, the names of Michael Schiele and Henry Correll were placed before the convention as candidates for Trustee. Virgil Brown and James Owens were appointed as tellers, and the convention submitted their vote which resulted as follows: Michael Schiele, 86; Henry Correll, 13. Mr. Schiele having received the majority of all votes cast, was declared the nominee of the party.
