Secretary Cnairman
McKinley and Koosevelt vere nomi
nated by acclamation at the Republi
can National Convention in Philadel
phia today
The platform condensed to plain and
comprehensive language is a mainten
ance of the gold standard fay or trusts
but not too many of a kind as that
would hurt trade Restrict foreign im
migration to benefit the laboring man
and eight hours labor Sorry for you
lioers but cant do any more for you
Protective tariff of course Rejoice in
the Dingley law the course of the ad
ministration with Spain ind the Porto
Rican tariff Liberal pension laws
Still remember that we promised some
thing to Cuba but its very remote in
our minds and dont bother us about it
now When we get full control of
everything down there then well dig
up that promise We want a canal
across Panama bat we wont tell you
just where we Avant it nor which speci
fic route We rejoice in the acquisition
of the Philippines and Porto Rico and
approve of the incidents and results of
the Spanish American Avar
It is believed by the members of the
Peoples Party generally that no better
selection could have been made by
them than that which was made at
Sioux Falls for president and vice-president
The names of Bryan and Towne
have a ring tc them that is dear to the
American people and especially is this
true where they are known I believe
these men to be the hope of the nation
and on them we should unite all the
reform forces yes I will make it even
stronger- we will unite all reforms un
der the banner of Bryan and Towne
and by so doing we can and will sweep
the country
The test is yet to come There is no
doubt but what these men will be nom
inated by the silver republican party
The question is what will the demo
cratic national convention do Will
they join with the Peoples Party and
the Silver Republican party and select
men who are the choice of the people
I bjjfieve they will if an effort is put
forth to that end
There is one argument however that j
3 j
the democratic cpnvention cannot well
overlook and that is that Towne will
benominated by two other conventions
and it also requires all these forces to
elect In the states where the Peoples
Party has control they are only too
anxious to unite the fprces on this tick
et No Democrat who supported Mr
Bryan in 596 can refuse to do so now
Towne stood on the Chicago platform
then and he has not changed Towne
can I believe bring many thousand
liberal Republicans to our support this
fall His location is certainly in a
group of states where there is a bright
hope of making gains to wit Michi
gan Minnesota and North and South
Dakota In all of these states we be
lievewe have a good chance to win
and being in the central west he is in a
position to bring as much support as
any man from point of location
To refuse to nominate Mr Towne we
faar will cause muchN feeling among
the members of the Peoples Party and
Silver Republicans especially with the
former since they have in making
their nominations selected men who
are in every particular competent to fill
these honored positions Their action
at Sioux Falls was free from partisan
ship patriotism took possession of that
body of voters and they have displayed
a spirit which is unexcelled by any
party recorded in history and Ave ap
peal to our Democratic friends to meet
us half Avay in this matter by making
Mr Towne their nominee for the vice
presidency With this done Ave believe
it Avill be a beginning of new things
A new era will be recorded and this
epoch Avill be marked as they record
the actions of political parties as a di
version from the usual customs and a
reuniting of the people on common
ground for one common purpose arid
that of making our government better
by rising to a higher -plane in the an
nals of American politics
Let me urge upon you the necessity
of making a strong appeal to our dem
ocratic friends who are delegates to
stand for Mr Townes nomination It
would probably be unwise to demand
of them this action but the poAver of
persuasion between man and man Avill
accomplish mucli and especially is this
true betAveen friends The exigencies
of the case demand prompt action as
we have but three Aveeks in Avhich to
perform the very important Avork Ave
have before us
My brothers let us be equal to the
emergency and throw all of our powers
and influence into this matter not only
by interviews and letters but I believe
Ave should assemble at Kansas City in
delegations from each state in this un
ion for the purpose of meeting and
mingling with the delegations from the
various states avIio are democrats and
show them Ave are exceedingly in ear
nest in this matter and if possible to
convince them that the hope of a great
nation rests upon their actions I be
lieve they are patriots and Avill listen
to our Avords Avith kinduess and Avhen
they have caught up the spirit which
prevailed at Sioux Falls Ave Avill all be
under one banner shouting for Bryan
and ToAvne which means victory for
our cause and county

on the oth inst does not
is known

hoped by them it wotrid
Hon J H Davis better known as
Cyclone Davis of Texas AAas in Ore
gon during the campaign and added
much to the interest Incident to the
same in writing to J H Edmisten
vice chairman of the situation has this
to say We have broken the strong
holds of the Republicans in this state
We elected tAvice the number of legisla
tors as compared Avith former elections
Ave also elected the district attorney in
Portland and will hereafter have an
honest count
The result in Portland is a decided
change in our favor Taking it as a
Avhole the fusionists have reason to re
joice over the outcome It very per
ceptible to the average reader that the
Republican papers have been very tame
in their reports of the Oregon election
The arguments that have constantly
been kept before the readers of the op
position press has been to the effect
that the great advantages given to the
Pacific states by virtue of the Avar go
ing on in the Philippines and their op
portunities to increase in commercial
traffic and consequently be personally
benefitted does not in this election
seem to Avork out according to the in
spiration given through Marks News
The voters along the Pacific slope
knoAV Avhen they have been kept faith
Avith and in expressing their Avill at the
polls have gently reminded the present
administration of the fact that they are
watching the action of Mr McKinley
in overriding the Chinese Exclusion
Act in landing thousands of Chinese
and Japs in the Philippines Avho only
have to be reloaded to bring them here
as the present administration assumas
they have absolute control Wheu it
tue rnuippino laborer re-
teen cents per day for his labor and
those landing there Avill have to enter
the labor market asking the same wa
ges or underbidding thosealready there
it is easy to be seen that the croAvded
labor market and the underpaid labor
er will at the tirst opportunity change
their condition And Avhat is the most
natural outcome of this over croAvded
condition in these new possessions The
answer is they will swarm to the
United States like flies and of course
tk5 Pacific states Avilll be the first to be
overtaken Avith this plague and suffer
from this influx of immigration Avhich
haA c been half paid as Avell as half fed
They come as a menace to our laborers
and at once force doAvn tle price of la
bor to the leyel of their OAvn condition
This Avill partially explain Avhy Oregon
has turned a deaf ear to the appeal of
the administration and other Pacific
states Avill do likewise Avhen the oppor
tunity presents itself
This question is most alarming to
them for the reason they will first feel
the effects of it And it is likewise
irue this danger is staring the Avjiole
country in the face and every laborer
and that does not apply only to the
man who hires his time to another at
so much per day but to all the toiling
classes Avho are engaged in legitimate
enterprises Avhere his own labor is em
ployed as Avell
The last legislature Avhich AAras repub
lican repealed Avhat Avas knoAvn as the
blanket ballot laAA This law AA as pas
sed by a reform legislature As will be
remembered this laAv provided for a
circle at the top of the ticket Avith the
emblem of the party aboye the circle
By making a cross in the circle the vo
ter Avas thus enabled to vote the ticket
straight If hoAvever he desired not
to vote the ticket straight he could
make his cross opposite the candidates
he desired to vote for as the laAv now
provides It has been proven that ful
ly ninety -five per cent of the Aoters
made the cross in the circle Avhen they
had the opportunity Under the pres
ent ballot law the names of the candi
dates must appear on the ticket in al
phabetical order and it has been prov
en the candidate AAhose name com
mences Avilh a letter near the last of
the alphabet does not receive on the
state vote by several thousand as many
as does the candidate Avhose name com
mences Avith a letter near the beginning
of the alphabet in this Avay there is a
discrimination against those AAhose
names come last By making the cross
in the circle this is largely overcome
There is another bad feature in the
laAv and that is iu the cities it requires
the clerk to ask each person who
ters his note to give his politics This
makes it exceedingly obnoxious to
many aa 1io are employes as they do
not Avant their politics knoAvn This
action destroys all of the objects of the
Australian ballot Avhich provided for
the voter the secrecy he regards as a
safe guard in casting his vote without
it being known hoAv he voted
To the surprise of all the reform
forces Governor Poynter signed the
laAv Avhich repealed the Uiav Avith the
circle at the top of the ticket as Avas
passed by our reform legislature the
one he signed AAas passed by the repub
lican legislature
Republicans Are in Favor of Bounties
The question of voting bounties sub
sidies and bonds has been one of the
characteristics of the Republican party
they have ever been ready to appropri
ate the peoples money or obligate the
people to pay the amounts their friends
the corporations might ask foi and
even in Nebraska Ave have been called
upon to meet the efforts of the slick
schemer Aho Avould conceive of some
neAV plan or idea that could not be car
ried Avithout assistance or some other
locality was bidding against this or
that place for some new enterprise and
they Avere Arilling to raise so much
moneA in order to secure the coA eted
prize This is the Avell knoAvn record
of the Republican leaders in each coun
ty or place Avhere these emergencies
Avere to be met
The Republicans Avere successful in
getting a law passed which- provided
for a bounty to be paid to the sugar
beet grOAvers and manufacturers by the
state and after doing so the sugar beet
manufacturers were the principal grow-
ers as the crop of beets could not be
used only as the manufacturer might
see fit
The following years the reform forces
of the state succeeded iu electing the
legislature and they Avere not in favor
of voting the peoples money to these
parasites and therefore refused to
make appropriations to meet claims
that had been filed with the state audi
tor amounting to about one hundred
thousand dollars and this reform legis
lature of 1897 looked upon the laAv as
being dangerous and repealed the
To the great surprise of the reform
forces when GoAernor Poynter was
elected and in his first message to the
legislature he recommended the pay-
inent of the amutint abovre mentioned
ceiAHjs the magnificent sum of six to I This request A as made to a Republican J
yygr ju - wp piww - - - -
legislature and they had the votes to
pass the bill and had the assurance the
governor Avould sign the same but with
the fight that Avas put up against the
appropriation by the reform forces the
Republicans concluded it would be
bad politics and they refused to -give it
the support it required
The Best Men Must be Chosen For the
As the time approaches for the open
ing up of the campaign Ave become
more and more interested in knoAving
Avhat the result Avill be We have
looked forward to this time since the
day aftdr the election Avhen Mr Bryan
Avas defeated in 1890 It was believed
then and nothing has transpired since
to change that conviction that through
fraud which was perpetrated by de
signing persons AA as McKinley elected
president of the United States It has
been substantiated beyond a doubt
that the great moneyed interests of the
country most liberally contributed to a
fund for that purpose and it is known
that this fund was most lavishly dis
tributed by and under the direction of
one Avho since that time has been hon
ored for his services Avith the United
States senatorship
The election of tAVO United States
senators by the votes of the next legis
lature Avill greatly add to the interest
of the campaign Avhile Ave elect all the
state officers together Avith six congress
men making it absolutely necessary
that the reform forces of this state be
prepared to meetr the emergency wheir
it comes We must first make such
nominations in all cases as Avillmeet
Avith the approval of the parties A
fair and equitable division among the
reform parties is necessary and no one
can object to this
The greatest fear Ave entertain is in
securing men iii the various representa
tive and senatorial districts Avho Avill
be strong Avith the people for it must
not beoverlooked that our majority in
many of the districts that are consider
ed safe are small and any district in
Avhich the majority does not reach over
200 should be placed in the doubtful
column likeAvise if the Republicans
have carried a district by less than 200
Ave should then consider Ave have a good
fighting chance to elect in such a dis
trict providing Ave make strong nomi
The result Avill be Avith this class of
legislators that Ave Avill be able to pass
some good laAvs Avhich are badly needed
and repeal others that are very obnox
If Ave elect the legislature we have
Avon the fight Yes I Avant to impress
upon the minds of our people that with
13 candidates distributed o er the
state as they are it is the most potent
factor in the campaign They are the
bulwark in the contest They are able
to giAre to the state and congressional
ticket more assistance than can possibly
be given by the latter The State
