record is back of the Columbia name-plate. They passed the experimental stage when
the others were yet unknown.
The best guarantee, the safest bicycle insurance, is knowing your bicycle is of
THE OLD RELIABLE "Columbia" or Hartford line:
Columbia chain models weigh 23 lbs, actual scale weight, and are guaranteed to
carry any purchaser. Buy a bicycle by weight (make the dealer put it on the scales).
In most bicycles you get five pounds more material than in Columbias, which signifies
you don't get your money's worth. Cheap material being bought cheap, cheap wheels
can and must contain many pounds of it.

Pnt Powers' Warning.
epcrfc of the committee on per-
Brganizauon precipitated a. lively
discussion. Into which Pat Powers, who
was evidently disappointed at something,
or everything, threw a tinge of bitter
ness, having all the effect of a solemn
warning. The report recommended that
the temporary organization be made per
manent; that 32 delegates be elected to
the state convention, who shall be dele
gates to the Congressional and district
conventions, and that the delegates
should be chosen at large upon nomina
tion: that the election be by ballot, and
that the 32 names receiving the highest
number of votes be elected; that a City
and County Central Committee be elect
ed, consisting of one member from each
ward of Portland, and three from the
country precincts; that a committee of
five be appointed upon resolutions and
platform, to report at the adjourned
meeting of the convention, and that no
resolution be offered or read in this con
vention at any of Its meetings without
having first been referred to the com
mittee; that the convention adjourn sub
ject to the call of the. chairman, and.
upon reassembling, nominate a full city
and county ticket.
George H. Thomas was dissatisfied
with the proposed method of electing
delegates, and moved that a majority
vote be required. It was shown that the
count never would be finished. If this plan
were followed, and Mr. Thomas withdrew
E. B. Seabrook provoked a prolonged
debate by moving to amend the report
so that each ward would have one dele
gate, the remainder to be elected at
D. J. Beakey moved to lay Seabrook's
amendment on the table, and Immedi
ately there followed a long and learned
debate on the parliamentary aspect of
the question as to whether a motion 'to
my on xne taoie was debatable, and
whether. If the motion prevailed, it
would not carry the main question to
tho table with It. Chairman Mllner
ruled rightly that the motion was not
debatable, and erroneously that Its adop
tion would not carry the main question
It was now that Pat Powers spoke his
mind and relieved himself of that tired
feeling that had all day been seeking an
avenue of escape. "I am not a candidate
for nothing." he declared, dramatically.
"But remember that there will be an
election In June. If you want a certain
crowd to go to the state convention, I
say 'Amen! But If you divide the hon
ors evenly, you will get more votes in
June. Pat Powers ain't hunting for n
thing on earth, and he will be satisfied
with whatever action tho convention
Any number of delegates started to
talk, but R. H. Love, of Mount ZIon. got
the floor and held on to It for deer life.
Dr. John Welch wanted to say a word
ha had been trying all day to get in a
word edgewise but Chairman Mllner re
minded him that Love was still on deck.
"Well, he does." said the urbane doc
tor; "I thought he set down."
Seabrook's amendment was voted down
by an overwhelming vote, and the re
port of the committee was adopted after
It had been amended to provide for the
election of the 'City and County Commlt
mlttee before the delegates to the state
City and County Committer.

and County Committee. This was speed

Slates Ruled Ont.
The appearance of the two slates was
the occasion of a great disturbance. Both
were denounced as the work of rtngsters.
Ex-Police Captain A. C. Barclay "cussed"
tho printed ticket which was tho first to
come under his notice, and then the other
one, when he saw it. Some of his remarks
were more vigorous than literary.
W. N. Gatens offered this resolution:
"Resolved, that It is the sense of this con
vention that in the election of delegates no
printed ticket be allowed."
J. P. Burkhardt defended tho printed
Sanderson Reed explained that for rea
sons that are apparent It was best to
elect delegates at large, and If a hundred
men desired to vote the printed ticket
they should do so, but not make us of a
printed ballot. It was an awkward thing
to do. he said, and therefore he would sec
ond Mr. Gatens" motion and would also
nominate for a delegate. Alexander Sweek.
Pat Powers hoped that tho convention
WOUM not An IIVa ,hn TfmfKll,.., ....
bring In a cut-and-dried ticket "It don't
look well," said Mr. Powers. "You can
scratch me and put on some old German
some old Paul Kruger. That's the way
to get votes In June."
William Foley said: "About five min
utes ago I noticed a printed ticket The
same kind of action was brought In here
two years ago. This kind of a ticket
ought to be frowned down. Let us have
no ring" rule,"
Dr. John Welch said the use of a print
ed ticket was an unwise thing, and he
hoped the Gatens motion would prevail.
Gatens resolution was carried unani
mously. The nomination of delegates to the state
convention was attended with great con
fusion. At times a dozen men were on the
floor at the same time, all clamoring for
recognition In the most vociferous manner.
It was Impossible to do business, and fre
quently Chairman Mllner had to call s
halt so that the secretaries could get all
the names proposed. Those put before the
convention were: General 1L B. Compson.
