fttiusc intert-gts Lave Ijeen injured by
the recent "change. " The repiesenta
tiiu from all or(ioin of the state ex
ceeded the sanguine expectations of
thotte whu considered themselves in
formed. Long before (be hour had arrived for
the oeniiig of tbe convention the roomy
assembly hall was crowded with repre
sentative republicans whose interest and
entliuitiaMu found vent through im
promptu sjieeches of stirring nature,
in which stale politics was sandwiched
between amumenU on the tariff, income
tax and tbe Hawaiian questions. It was
clearly evident that no cut-and dried
programme had been arranged for the
convention, for it was everywhere under
stood that nominations were to be made
in open Reunion. "This was not a matter
of politics with me," said one man, "but
puraly a msttter of business. The
country is going to ruin, and my busi
ness with it, snd I, for one, sin going to
tiy lo slop it." Ttie general opinion was
that Oregon must set tbe key note for
the campaign, as it did six years ago,
and that the industrial salvation of the
community deiemls upon the success of
the republicon party. The convention
was railed to order at 10 :40 o'clock by
I'n siileiit Thomas II. Tongue.
The committer on credentials found

These conditions existed under the ad
ministration of Mr. r.uchanan, when the
government was in the hands of the de
mocracy; they were predicted by the re
publican parly in the last campaign as
sure to occur on the return of that
party to power, and the predictions have
been fulfilled by even the shadow of the
Wilson bill. a mongrel tariff measure
that lias passed the house and is now
before the senate, posseaaing all the de
fects of free trade, a tariff for revenue
and s protective tariff without the vir
tues of either. There is no proximity
for the country under such a policy,
should it be adopted, or while tbe
threat of its adoption hangs over us.
It compels the farmer, the miner, the
shepherd, the lumberman, and the fruit-
raiser to sell in a free-trade market and
buy in a protected market. It is rlamt
legislation with a vengeance, tint robs
the many to enrich the few. Its effect
upon tbe revenues and upon business
is already apparent. For six months
the deficiency is 10,000,000 ; tbe admin
istration must borrow money to pay
running expenses; and business is at a

Philadelphia, Feb. 2. Mr. Childs is
dead. His last illness began with a
fainting spell which seized him while in
bis office in the Ledger building, on Janu
ary luth. He became unconscious and
a doctor was hastily summoned. Restor
atives were applied with the result that

following Sunday night his phyisiciaus

was over work, and the anxiety attend

memory of his life long friend, the late

The day upon which the Jattack came
was spent by Childs in preparing for the
Drexel memorial services held in Drexel
institute on Saturday, January 20.

oik for the success of the republican
At the afternoon estion after the list
of delegates had been reiorted it was de
cided best not to adopt resolutions so the
committee appointed to prepare resolu
tions was diiected to prepare an address
to the voters of tbe state.
President TUoe. Tongue, of Hillsboro,
delivered an able address touching upon
the political situation in all its bearings.
When he referred to William McKinley
the convention went wild showing that
Oregon republicans have a strong lean
ing to the Ohio statesman.
Ulticers were elected lor the ensa

for coal, for fruit, and no necessity for

up his head, a nun among nu n, and
earn s livelihood for himself and those
dependent upon him, and this because
the policy of protection had rescued and
conceived the Americsn market, the
best in the world, for American work
men. Tnis policy of protection, under re
publican rule, changed and modified as
experience suggested, culminated in the
McKinley bill and produced, an era of
prosperity without peer in the history of
The question before you is, Shall we
plunge deeper into thin abyss of promised
free trade or return to the rock of pro
tection, that protects every industry that
bears on all alike and preserve the
dignity of American labor? But the

false theories of tbe democratic party,
have voted for a change, and the nation
today, without distinction of party,
stands aghast at the result!

OREGON CITY, OR.
The republican clubs of the state of
Oregon, through their delegates in con
vention assembled, In view of the vast
interests at slake at the general election
to bo held the lirst week in June next
submit the following, and beg that in de
termining your political course on that
occasion you give the matter herein sub
mitted your earnest consideration :
The depressed condition of the coun
try has no parallel in the history of the
present uencrution. Mines are shut
down, factories are closed, business
h suspended and labor. is without
remunerative employment. This, com
ing immedidtelv cn the passage of
all the branches of the federal govern
ment Into the hands of the democratic
party, we cannot but attribute to that
tlio conditions existing.
I n the piuttorm upon winch it was
elected it promised radical changes in
laws, and pronounced the policy of pro
tection under which the country had
prospered as unconstitutional, and in
the interests of the few as against those
of the many who threaten the repeal
of the tax on the state bank circulation,
thus flooding the country with the irre
deemable wildcat money of former dem
After the election the country took
the democracy at its word and began to
frame its business to meet the promised
changed conditions. A great financial
panic ensued. It expected free trade
and state bank money, and will buy
only at free trade prices, when it buys
at all. It expects its wool from Aus
tralia, its coal from Nova Scotia, iron
from Cuba, Its fruits from Italy and Ger
many, and tbat the European manufac-
trial party, whose policies are best calcu
lated to serve the interests of the indus
trial classes. Its first concern is to find
employment for labor at renumerative
wages, snd to protect a laborer in bis
rights. That is what the workimiman
asks not charity.
We cannot, in closing, forbear to direct
your attention to the Hawaiian islands,
and our conduct as a nation toward them.
The best men of Hawaii, representing all
classes, and through the veins of whose
American ancestors coursed the blood of
those patriot men who promulgating the
sacred principle that it was an inborn
right to overthrow a tyrannous and cor
rupt government, had dethroned a licen
tious queen and established a provisional
government, looking to annexation to the
United States. The stars and stripes
were unfurled to the breeze, while our
American republic was asked to extend
to them a helping hand, and to give to
them a part in our great nation, or rec
ognize them in their righteous efforts to
become a free and independent people.
A republican president accepted the
trust, and a republican congress would
have gladly extended to the struggling
people the strong protective arm of Amer
ican civilization. But a change in our
national administration has wrought
wonderful results. A man who has had
more experience in hauling down than
in running up the old flair, was given ex
traordinary, unwarranted and unheard-of
power, and forthwith dispatched to the
islands and under whose direction,
sanctioned by the president, the stars
and stripes were hauled down, a repub
lican and free government attempted to
be overthrown and a base and corrupt
monarchy, ever hateful to a free-bom
man, attempted to be re-established in
We believe we voice the sentiment of
every patriot when we allege that this
cowardly and un-American conduct upon
the part of a democratic administration
ought to meet the condemnation of an

Albany, Or., Feb. 2. A little oyer
one week ago County School Superin
tendent Gr F. Russell left thia ultr os
tensibly on a trip to San Francisco. The
county officials discovered today that be
has been guilty of systematic robbery of
the school fund and that he took with
bim considerable county school money.
It has been customary for the school
superintendent to draw money for
school districts from the treasurer and
send it to the clerks as an accommoda
tion, so it was easy for Inm to escape
detection. In some eases he forged the
names of clerks and in others gave fic
titious names of clerks of school dis
tricts having no existence.
The full amount of his embezzlement
is not known. Over $1,000 is known to
be stolen and perhaps much more.
When last heard of Russell was in
Omaha. lie telegraphed his wife here
asking if she would come to hira. She
refused and returned to her parents at
Shedds. Rusfiell is aged about 33 and
had heretofore been considered honest.
Ths Best Should So Likewise
Portland, Feb. 2. J. P. O. Lowns-
dale, a member of the state board ot
equalization from this district, has for
warded his resignation to Governor Pen
noyer. (Mr. Lotvnsdale was elected in June,
1893, and being in the 4th district and
second class) would have held the office
until the first Monday of July, 18!'(i. He
was president of the the board at its last
two sessions. His action In not causing
the assessment for 1893 in Multnomah to
be reduced to lower figures than the
other members thought best, brought
him into disfavor in Portland.
Ho Toll Bridge Wanted.
Albany, Feb. 5. The special election
held today to vote upon the question of
placing a toll upon the steel wagon
bridge across the Willamette river, at

nine in favor of maintaining it as a free
