paramount question boforo tho Ameri

tho state of Oregon, in convention as
sembled, reatllrm their loyalty to tho
gold standard and their opposition to
tho freo coinage of silver. Wo believe
tho best and most stable dollar in the
world should bo issued by legislation
to tho laborer as tho fruit of his toil,
and to tho fanner as tho price of his
crop. Wo aro in sympathy with tho
efforts of the Republican senators aud
representatives in congress to enact
legislation for this purpose.
Wo heartily endorse tho Philippine
policy of tho presout administration.
Theso islands havo-beon won by Ameri

CHURCH'S FIRST ADDRESS.
Grand Hondo valley was Bottled, a
hugo section of Price's army got in on
tho ground floor, and it was protty hard
work to make Republicans of thoiu.
Some of them have gone into tho sheop
business, however, and various other
industries, and for other reasons added,
are now getting around to tho Ropuh
lican ranks. Wo havo also had our Ro
publican family jars, and wo had some
very nstuto Democratic statesmen up
thero, who tako advantage or our
us, and socuro tho olllcess, while a
huge mimhor of our bright Republican
men, who desire such positions, havo
to stay out. Wo propose this year to
fill theso positions with Republicans.
"Wo have not been in tho habit of
sending to the Orogou legislature a full
Republican delegation. Wo have been
mixed considerably; hut things
changed, and this year 1 find tho sontl-
mout all through the county is to stand
together and work for tho interests of
tho Republican party, and thus send a
solid Republican delegation to tho next
people, and of tho Americiin lalmrcr ill
particular. Wu aro opposed to tho
i!ionoollzation of commerce and indus
try by trusts, and aro in favor of all
judicious legislation looking to the cur
tailment of their powor.
It is the sense of this convention of
Republican clubs of Oregon that tho
constitution of tho United States should
bo amended in relation to tho manner
of choosing members of tho United
States seuato, and that they should be
olocted by direct vote of tho people.
Furtbror rot-olvod, that our senators aud
representatives in congress bo lequostod
to work aud vote for any measure that
will bring about this proposed reform.
Wo .extend our sympathy to tho
families of the Oregon volunteers who
lost their lives in tho Philippines, and
wo request the secretary of war to make
provision for tho removal of tho remains
of these dead heroes to the end that
they may roposo in Oregon soil.
Whoioas, the war department has
failed to comply with the request of our
governor for tho return to the statu of
Oregon for burial, our soldier boys who
gave their lives for their country.
Thoroforo, bo it rosolved that wo
commend tho courso taken by our gov
ernor, and damaud that our dead heroes
bo returned to their families and friends
in our state, aud that tho governor be
requested to convey this resolution to
President MoKlnluy, with tho lequost
that he comply with tho same.
