HOW FULTON WON.

In the election of Mr. Fulton to
the eenatorship a few minutes after
midnight, the Oregon legislature
has made another of its records in
eanator-makine amid ecenes ot or
atory, led lights, tableaux and
other contrivances of the spectacu
lar. The habit was acquired in re-
eent vears. George McrSnde, as

THE MCBRIDE DEVICE
It was eleven o'clock. The hands
on the clock in tbe big assembly
hall were fast hearing the last min-
ute of the sesEion. The last roll
call began. The accident of birth seat among the members. He was
in a family whose name began with Binger Hermann, and his coming

the list in the roll call. When his tancy sent the whisper around that
name was reached, Brownell stood
oh his feet. Smoothly, gracefully,
charmingly, he told of the virtues
of George McB ride, and hurled the
same ot that estimable man into
the lap of the joint assembly as a
compromise. Magic stole into the
chamber and conjured with every
member. Oratory, fervid and im-. lot
passioned lighted up the scene, and
red lights of enthusiasm began to
flame up in various parts of the
room. A spell was on, and nothing
could stop it. Member after mem-
ber was caught up by it, and amid a-doing is a question that those
scenes as dramatic, as bloodless who suspect that there was method

where after a pretty little
he was baptized in the benedictions
of the excited assembly.
HOW MITCHELL USED IT.
The incident left its deep
on the politics of Oregon.
plot was so pretty, tbe
scene eo brilliant, tbe end so be-
wilderingly attractive to the multi-
tude that the trick has since been a
big asset with senator makers. Mitch-
ell didn't do it that way two years
later, because Simon and- Bourne
wouldn't let him organize the legis-
lature. Simon didn't use the trick
four years later because by fooling
Fuiton into a caucus, he didn't
need to. But two years ago, Mitch-
ell and his friends, after holding
McBride to the front as an impos-
sible impossibility, and after fore-
ing Corbett supporters to earth
from shear , weekneBS and exhaus-
tion, stole into the assembly an
hour before midnight, and there be-
neath the brilliant glare of oratorio-
alfire works and electrical sky rock
ets, leaped into triumph scarcely
less dramatic and sensational than
was the original McBride coup.
The latest use of the devise leaves
a new sequel. . The eleventh hour
dark horse did not win. Magnifi
cent as was the claim of the candi
date proposed, wearied and worn as
were the phalanx of the men be
hind the candidate whom it was
seught to defeat, "failure" is the
Btern word that tells the story of
the attempt. The red lights did
not burn and glow as they did
when McBride vaulted into -the
great assembly hall. Oratory, was
rot of the eloquent, fervid, soul
stirring character that brought
men to their feet and women almost
to hysterics when Mitchell reached
and held the eenatoril toga, with
the delights of the blest playicg ov
er his featuies. It failed, failed
somehow, and Fulton, surrounded
by his war-scarred followers, stayed
on the held until the last toeman
had struck his colors or fled dis
mayed. This is how it happened:
STORY OF VICTORY
Final balloting began at eight o'f
clock. The determined struggle o
the next four hours would make a
senator, and on every face there
was expectancy and suppressed ex
citement. What intense emotions
surged through the breasts of those
for whom the members were voting
can only be guessed at.
The assembly was a mass ot
crowding, jostling, humanity. In
side the bar, almo3t every chair in
the house had been placed, and
each was occupied. Outside the
railing the crowd was of tne kind
as is only seen on such occasions.
Every time a senator is to be elect
ed in the last moments of the ses
sion the sime spectacle is manifest.
Cattle in the wildest stampede on
the plains never crowded' and el
bowed and jostled eacn other with
more reckless abandon or more care
less determination. The seats were
full, sometimes with two where
there was only room for one, and in
every niche and nook of floor space
somebody was standing. The half
dozen special officers employed for
'he evening made bo more impres-
sioo iu keeping the "crowd from
surging and struggling than could
the efforts of a baby in reeietirg an
embattled regiment. Seats in the
lobby were pre-empted as early as
two o'clock in the afternoon, and
were Occupied by the same person
through the long ten and one-half
hours until the struggle ended
Throughout the evening thedem-
ocrats cast their seventeen votes
steadily for Lieutenant Wood. On
the firet ballot Fulton's vote was
33 and Geer's 28, with the rest of
the republican vote scattering. Dur
ing the progress of the next few
ballots two Multnomah members
changed to Geer, lifting the latter's
maximum to thirty. For nearly
the last cards in the great game
HERMANN CAME IN.
A significant incident happened
shortly before eleven o'clock.
A man of distinguished mien
in the corridor, walk
dignified bearing to
inside - tbe railing and took
he was to be tbe dark horse. AH
the t:me, three members of the as-
Isembly had been voting for him.

appearance at the moment when

spasmodic mood, with a chance

loose sitting in the lobby were on
their feet in a flash, those in the
back rows standing in their seats,
Dead silence fell over the great
For five minutes or more Senator
Smith talked without mentioning
.the name of bis candidate, but his
language told everybody what name
it was to be. In earnest tones he
pleaded for the assembly to unite,
and then threw the name of Har-
vey W. Scott into the arena,
"It's Scott" unconsciously fell from
the lips of nearly every man in the
lobby And the hum swelled into a
dull roar. Then the audience burst
into a demonstration that was a
flattering testimonial to both speak-
er and candidate,
For eight or nine minutes longer,
Senator Smith spoke, too long and
too tamely for the purposes of his
address. Malarkey of Multnomah,
in an earnest address, seconded the
nomination, but no demonstration
like that of its first mention greeted
the new candidate's name then or
When the Tide Turned.
It was Ben Eddy, who delivered
a mortal blow to the Scott boom.
He took the floor the moment Ma
larkay sat down, and in a speech
of scarcely three minutes, couched
in purest language, replete with su
perb oratory and delivered in ve
hement passion lifted the audience
from its feet and brought out
wild storm of demonstration, that
was only equaled, when in the lest
moment the 45th vote had
been gathered in ana jsuiton was
carried to the platform for his
sbeech of victory. The reception
of Eddy e burst of oratory had
marked effect and must have been
a powerful incident in turning the
tide of battle.
Mr Scott figured in three ballots
The first was Fulton 35; Scott 28;
Geer eight. Kay 01 Manon and
Hobson of Marion, both Geer sup
porters had joined the Fulton col
nmn. 1 he second ballot wap, i ul
ton 35; Scott 29. The third ballot
began at fivej minutes to twelve,
but it never came to an end. Sev
enteen minutes later, or 12 minutes
past midnight, the election of Ful
ton was announced.
The third ballot proceeded with
out change until the name of Not
tingham of Multnomah was reached.
He took tbe floor and after a brief
speech, changed from Scott to Ful
ton. Banks of Multnomah followed
the example of his collagu. It is
said that if Nottingham had stood
firm for Scott through that ballot
that the Marion delegation was to
have gone to the latter in
the next. His change however, set
the tide in Fultoos direction, and
it flowed unchecked and resistless
until Senator Daly of Benton, gave
him tbe 45 vote, or enough to elect,
Representative Hayden having al
ready changed from Geer to Fulton.'
With each new accession, the Ful
ton supporters burst into a wild
demonstration, and when the desi
red number of votes was secured
pandemonium reigned. Fulion was
carried on the. shoulders of his
friends (o the platform, where in a
graceful and mol feeling; speech he
thanked all for bis election and de
clared that he would represent the
city of Portland as well as the in
terests of Astoria.

doubly gratified from the fact that

having been in tbe past in all my
contests except the first, he was
not then in the state my able and

be one of the most thoroughly e-
quipped men in Oregon for the po
sition. While in the campaign just
closed some opposition was made
irom r or t land, based upon tbe as- I
sumption that because of Mr. Ful
ton s residence in Astoria he would
not be able to properly represent
the great commercial interests cf
Portland, personally I never took
any stock in this assumption. Upon
the contrary, I know Mr. Fulton
to be big enough and broad enough
to represent the whole state aud ev
ery section of tbe state just as faith
fully and as ably as he will repre
