N.C. Republican State Convention

Greensboro, N.C., Special—Preserving historic traditions of harmony and discounting prophesies of protracted warfare, the Republicans of North Carolina in convention assembled Wednesday afternoon elected Congressman John Motley Morehead state chairman by acclamation, put out a state ticket Wednesday night, and adjourned as a harmony assemblage that was heralded far and wide for weeks past as a likely free-for-all fight.

The convention adopted a platform which embodies a significant self-government plank, made radical reforms in its plan of organization and nominated candidates for the Supreme Court and the Corporation Commission.
