The Democratic state convention, which
met jesterday in HIbernia Hall, nomi
nated George E. Chamberlain for Gover
nor by acclamation, adopted a qualified
scuttle policy with regard to the Philip
pinesafter a row In committee which
lasted all day, made dlstricttheglslatlve
nominations, named a state central com
mittee with Sam White as chairman, and
adjourned to resume the burdens of state
at the early hour" of 10 o'clock this morn
ing, at which time Lark Bilyeu, of Eu
gene, will probably be nominated for
SujDreme, udge;.J. H..Raley. of Umatilla,
for Attorney-General; E. R, Bragg, pf
Union, for Superintendent Public Instruc
tion; J. B. Godfrey, of Salem, for State
Printer. No decision has been reached as
to Secretary of State and State Treasurer.
In convention all was sweet peace and
harmony, and even the rumors of the
mighty warfare that was being waged in
the platform committee between the scut
lers and the antl-scuttlers hardly ruffled
the surface of the patient throng that
was waiting for a platform for Its candi
dates to stand upon before it thrust -any
of them forth. Mr. Chamberlain was
nominated amid cheers, war-whoops and
waving of hats, and every reference to
his name was greeted by a tumult like
unto the noise of many waters. But It
was lor Chamberlain alone they cheered.
He was the qnly candidate named, it Is
true, for the squabble over the platform
was not ended till the middle of the
evening, but the customary shouts which
hae made the welkin ring In Democratic
conventions when the magic words "Will
lam Jt Bryan" were voiced were not
heard. From 11 o'clock In the morning
till 10 o'clock at night the men who have
stood shoulder to shoulder with the boy
orator of the Platte labored In conven
tion, and yet there was not one in all
the throng to speak his praise or his
name. Even the platform, which side
stepped around almost everything with
an adroitness which would do credit to a
greyhound, had not one word about "our
gallant and invincible leader from Ne
braska," nor yet so much as a passing al
lusion to the free and unlimited coinage
of silver at toe ratio of 16 to 1 without
the aid or consent of any nation on
earth. Once or twice a speaker, starting
with Thomas Jefferson, brought the party
up to Andrew Jackson, and the dele
gates held their breath for fear the trail
would turn Nebraskaward, but the fears
were Ill-grounded, for the speakers had
been doing some Industrious forgetting In
the last two years, and they knew when
Orat6ry there was In abundance. In the
morning, when Chairman White of the
state central committee called the con
vention to order, he talked. E. R. Sklp
jorth, who as the result of a compro
mise with A. D. Stlllman was chosen
temporary chairman, talked. Charles
Galloway, who was elected temporary
secretary, talked. A. D. Stlllman, who
became the permanent chairman on rc
comentlon In the afternoon, talked. J.
P. Wager, who nominated Mr. Chamber
lain, talked for 15 minutes, Watson of
Umatilla, seconding Chamberlain's nomi
nation, talked. R. D. Inman, another of
Mr. Chamberlain's seconds, talked. There
was no disposition to gag anyone. Not
a motion was, made without an exordium
and peroration by the maker. When
somebody would move to take a recess
for an hour, somebody else would offer
an amendment extending It to an hour
and a half. The amendment would be
argued at length and with eloquence;
then the author of the original motion,
feeling that enough had been said, would
accept It, thus salng the convention the
necessity of wasting much valuable time
In voting that was really needed for
But there was really no business to
transact after the. preliminaries had been
disposed of, and consequently the flow
of language served merely to assist In
killing time. The cause of the delay was
Before taking a recess In the morning
a platform committee was chosen, a mem
ber being selected from each county by
the delegates representing it. This com
mittee repaired forthwith to the head
quarters of the state central committee
in the, Chamber of Commerce building,
where, after electing Thomas H. Craw
ford, of Union County, chairman. It pro
ceeded to consider 30 or 40 drafts of plat
forms, which had been prepared by as
many statesmen. All proceeded with
smoothness until the Philippine plank
was to be laid," and then the fact devel
oped that there were two very positive
opinions among the members of the com
mittee. A sub-committee, consisting of Lark
Bilyeu of Lane, N. A. Peery of Mult
nomah, O. P. Coshow of Douglas, Thomas
H. Crawford of Union. J. W. Morrow of
Morrow, E. A. McDanlel of Baker, and
R. L. Harris of Yamhill had been pre
pared to draw up a platform out of the
copious material at the disposal of the
larger committee, and on examination,
their views on the Philippine situation
appeared to be as follows r
Annexation of the Philippines Is an accom
plished fact, and the Democrats of Oregon
yield to Irrevocable events, and believe In turn
Ins them to the mutual benefit of the American
and Filipino peoples. The Philippine question
Is now one of administration, not by scheming
exploiters and personal promoters, but by phil
osophic statesmen who have a broader concep
tion of duty than seeking Inordinate salaries
or grabbing vast areas of timber and mineral
lands. We condemn the arbitrary power and
absolutism of the Republican party manifested
In treatment of our island territories, making
them American territories for rulo and plunder.
and foreign territory for the benign operation
of a Republican tariff; making them. American
subjects for taxation, but denying to them the
hope of freedom guaranteed to its citizens by
the American Constitution. We favor commer
cial expansion, free trade with the Philippines,
and all our other territories, and the guarantee
of Constitutional liberty to our Island terri
tories. t ,
Mr. Peery, of the sub-committee, dis
sented, and so did numerous others in the
general committee. E. D. Boyd, of Uma
tilla, appeared as the champion for this
conservative statement, and did a little
talking about it. Mr. Peery took the
other side, advocating a scuttle policy,
and soon the' entire committee and many
of those who had come down to listen
to their deliberations- were discussing the
question like mad. Judge Thomas O'Day
about this time knocked at the door of
the committee-room and asked permission
to say a few words. Permission was
granted, and he said them, making an
eloquent scuttle talk. At the conclusion
of Judge 0Days address the committee
shut the door gently but firmly and post
ed a man in front of it with peremptory
Instructions to admit no one to the room
who was not a member. But the echoes
of Judge O'Day's massive voice were still
ringing In the ears of the committeemen,
and had found lodgment in so many of
their hearts that another plank was
drafted, practically reaffirming the posl-
tloiritaken by the convention of two years
ago, and reading like this:
The Inhabitants of the Philippines hae peti
tioned for free trade with the United States,
and their request has been seconded by the
Philippine Commission, and the sentiment of
the American people, yet a Republican Con
gress 'refuses any proper relief, but enacts
tariff laws for these islaudsmore burdensome
and Usa'defensrtnQ.-tnan the 'acts of the British
Parliament agaln which ouf forefathers re
belled. The policy that makes one law for the
Hawaiian Islands, another for Porto Rico, and
another for the Philippines, cannot be upheld
on any ground except that of subserviency tc
the sugar trust and the tobacco trust. Our In
sular possessions are either part of our coun
try or are foreign territory. If a part of our
country, the people are entitled to the trade
privileges that are granted to any of our terri
tories, and any legislation that restricts that
privilege Is odious to the American spirit and
disgraceful to American government. We be
lieve that the true policy Is to adopt Is to 'pre
pare the people of those islands for sef -government
as speedily as possible, and when so pre
pared to grant them their Independence, retain
ing such coaling stations and ports as may be
necessary to protect those islands from foreign "j
Interference, and to maintain our trade rela
tions In the Orient.
There was more discussion. Every five
or en minutes clamorous messengers
would come from the convention demand
ing to know how long beforcthe platform
would be ready. "In a few minutes," the
committeemen would reply hastily, and
renew hostilities with fresh energy and
vigor. "In a few minutes" soon became a
by-word In the convention, and, two re
cesses were taken In the afternoon before
it finally became apparent to the delegates
that the men who were building the plat
form were radical expansionists In regard
to time. When the convention, having

picked up and attended to all the routine
business it could find lying around, took
a recess until 7:30, the platform was still
unready, and it began to look as If the
delegates would have two of them to select
from, for the antl-scuttlers were emphat
ically flian. But they felt more concilia
tory after dinner, and Ojt last agreed to
accept the scuttle plank. Another mes
sage of "In a few minutes" was sent to
the convention, which had once more been
called to order, and It was followed short
ly by the committee on platform, with
their work complete and concurred in by
all who had a hand in It.
It was expected that the antl-scuttlers
would have some friends on the floor who
would inquire what had become of their
plank, but If such there were, they had
nothing to say. The platform was read bya
Mr. Crawford. Interrupted by frequent
cheering, and adopted with rousing cheers
and hats in the air.
With ithe exception ot a few speeches,
the delegates made short work of 'the
nomination of Governor. Mr. Chamber

on the platform at the conclusion of Mr.
Wager's nominating speech, and amid ' a

the demand for tariff revision was some
thing more than "newspaper talk," as has
often been asserted.
While Grosvenor declared that he would
not say anything -for use of the Demo

Democrats are preparing to make use of
much that Grosvenor uttered, especially
those who want to make the campaign in
favor of the reduction of the tariff.
