alterable opKitlon to Pinkerton or any
other similar detectives. It favored the
election of all ofllcera by direct vote of
the people and wanted the government
to recompenau the old soldiers by paying
the dilToronce lietween the current and
the gold value of the money in which they
were paid during the war. The platform
was adopted with a yell and a vote of
thanks given the committee.
Then the two congreaionaI conven
tions got into a snarl by trying to hold
separate meetings under the same chair
man. Two or three times a motion to
adjourn was lout on a deviaion of the
houae Once the second district re
solved to adjourn anyway but it gave up
the idea when it found that there was a
lot of general hiiincHS still to be trans
acted. Finally the trl district got to an
informal ballot for congressman but It
was too much mixed to be worth any
thing. Then the formal nominations of
M. V. Rork and 8. II. Holt were made
and a ballot resulted in favo7 of the for
mer sixty-five to thirty.
It was 11 o'clock but Burleigh, the
bunchgraHS orutor from Wallowa who
had been discovered the previous even
ing, was called out for a speech. Rork
then was called for and he pulled out
the trnmolo stop in his voice and ex
preH.ed bis appreciation of the honor
conferred upon him, and aked and
obtained permission to substitute Mr.
Holt if he should from any cause fall
during tho campaign. Then a motion
to adjourn was recklessly carried with a
whoop, Holt making his remarks as
the sleepy delegates were edging toward
Thursday foronoon J.C I.tice of Grant
county was nominated hy tho second
district for congress and Punham
Wright of Umatilla lot supremo judge.
J. M. Archibald of Columhia was nomi

the place vacant. The convention is in
session at tho time of going to press.
