The above ticket was put up by the
citizens' convention on last Friday,
and proved a boomerang in the republi- j
can camps, which were predicting a
slated ticket and an unbarmonious con
vention. The ticKet is clean and is free
from bossism and unholy alliances.
which were characteristic of the Brow-
nell ticket put up by the so-called repub
lican convention a week previous, and
will be supported by a large number of
independent republican voters who are
opposed to boss rule and combinations
to turn down ' good men because they
will not stand in with the machine.
On Friday morning the populist and
democrat parlies ' met separately and
elected delegates to their lespective state
conventions and officers of committee.
At about 3:30 p. m. the delegates met
in joint mans convention as citizens and
proceeds! to put up a first class ticket
and platform, which they did in a man
ner satisfactory to all concerned. The
convention was the . most harmonious
one that has been held in Clackamas
county for 15 or 20 yearB and the be6t of
feeling and good fellowship prevailed
The platform promulgated by the
platform committee and unanimously
adopted by the convention proved the
wiBdom of the chairman in naming the
personnel of the committee.
The vindictive and discordant element
was conspicuous by its absence, as was
its leader who had heretofore taken part
in reform conventions. This element
has begun already to circulate stories
about this man and that man being
Brownell men, and hopes thereby to
create d'ecord or friction. Citizens, we
caution you at this time not to believe
all the absurd stoiies circulated by and
for the opposition,
This convention consisted of between
250 - and 800 subbtantial citizens oT
Clackamas county who had the welfare
of the county at heart and were not a(,ter'
office. In this case the man did not
seek nomination for office. Never be
fore in the history of Clackamas courfty;
has such a body of taxpayers met in
convention to nominate a ticket, and
never was there Buch harmony and good
feeling, and if the citizens will put their
shoulders to the wheel and stand to
gether from now until election day we
will elect every man on our ticket, be
sides helping the cause of human lib
In the near future we will give a short
sketch of the personnel of the ticket put
up by the masses in opposition to the
class ticket put up by Brownell and his
gang for Hatma, Simon & Co., the own
ers of Oregon.
Following is a detailed report of the
People's Party County Convention.
We have found the best plow in the world, the
Syracuse chilled. We have a big stock of five
tooth cultivators that we bought at the old price,
and we intend to sell them cheap.
We are headquarters for Steel Lever Har
