CUT AND DRIED AFFAIR
SLATED CANDIDA 1 ES
Only Once Was tlie Slate Broken;
when Nelson Defeated Blair
Brownell on Top.
The republican county convention on
Wednesday was a very harmonious af
fair and everything passed off smoothly,
except when Dr. Smith, of Eagle Creek,
tried to down the Porter delegation, but
a good share of bis sputtering was
squelched by Czar Campbell, who seem
ed to be monarch of all he surveyed.
Smith delegation was defeated by a 2 to
1 vote, and his resolution endorsing T.
Geer was tabled, and it died, mis
was an unexpected incident, and not on
regular program, and but for the fact
that Walter Lvons, secretary to uover
or Geer. and L. B. Geer. were "doing
business" in Oregon City two days before
would not have happened.
The entire plate would have gone
through if Nixon Blair, the candidate
for assessor, had not been so indifferent
nd had worked for himself a little
Everything elsti went as it was willed,
lthough there was some feeling when
15. iJimick was turned down tor
Campbell for chairman (or second term.
Th s was a decided slap at Dimick, and
was an unusual proceednre to let
the chairman have two terms. 1
Next week, as has been the custom of
Courier-Herald for years, it will give a
sketch of each of the candidates nomi
nated, besides additional comment. It
may seem strange but it is a fact that
every man that this paper said would
be nominated was, not that it had any
influence with the convention, but it
gave candidates publicity that could be
obtained by no other means. Didn't it
say months ego that .Brownell, btiaver,
Sleicht and Stevens would be nominees,

It was 11 o'clock p. m., before the re
publican county convention completed
its labors Wednesday night. It was the
most prolonged republican convention
ever htld in Clackamas county. There
were hot boxes tba had to be cooled,,
and other parts of the machine had to
be readjusted and oiled. The Geer
ticket of delegates to the state conven
tion was voted down at a late hour, in
dicating that Geer was not the desired
candidate for governor to the party
leaders. The slated legislative and
county ticket was ratified with a single
exception, including delegates to the
state convention. It was noticeable
that but very country precinct dele
gates were chosen to go to the state con
vention, although a hundred more or
were anxious for the honor, ine
work of the convention from beginning
to end, showed the skilled maneuver
ing and diplomacy of astute politicians,
determined to carry their plans to a suc
cessful issue. 0. H.' Dye and Ernest
Rands, were thrown bouquets of uncer
tain fragrance in the matter of endorse
ments for joint representative and joint
senator, although it was understood at
the Btate convention two years ago, that
Multnomah county was to have these
nominations this year. However, the
matter may be compromised. There
was oratory sufficient at the con
vention to fill a book on modern elo
quence, and some of the outside dele
gates displayed rare talent in that direc
tion It was about 10:30 a. rn., when
County Chairman J. U. Campbell called
the county convention to order in Wil
lamette hall, and made a harmony
speech. A. S. Dresser was made tem
porary chairman by the nomination of
Tom P. Randall, and Franklin T. Grif

motion of E. C. Hackett, seconded by

While the committees were deliberat
ing, more harmony speeches were made
by Gordon E. Hayes, Senator Brownell
and Robert Schuebel.
On motion the temporary officers
were made permanent, and G. B. Dim
ick was elected assistant secretary.
O A. Miller presented the following
resolution : "Resolved, That the dele
gates to the state convention be, and
they are hereby Instructed to vote for
and use all honorable means to secure
the nomination of L. L. Porter for
state printer." 1
When the resolution was put to the
vote of the convention, a . murmur of
dissension was heard, and a standing
vote was demanded. Ni lety out of the
146 delegates stood np in favor of the
resolution, five voted against it, and the
remainder d'd not vote all.
Dr. C. B. Smith, of Eagle Creek, de
sired to introduce a resolution instruct
ing the delegates to the state convention
to vote for the renornination of T. T.
Geer for governor, and stated that the
slated delegates to the state convention,
would be bartered and traded like live
stock by Senator Porter, or words to
that, effect. After the resolution was
ruled out of order by the chairman two
or three times, it was referred to the
committee on platform and resolutions.

resolution be passed instructing the
Clackamas county members of the legis
lature to restore the county judge to his

sented a resolution to that effect. Mr.
Campbell stated )he committee had a
resolution coveriug this ground uuder
consideration, which would be reported
Inter. Mr. Koerner obiected to any
postponement, and was determined that

pigeon-holed. Mr. Campbell presented

commissioners shall expire, wnicn
