THE SUNDAY OREGONIAN, . PORTLAND, 'APRIL' 8, 1900.
MADE IT "CITIZENS'"
Democrats of Marion Both
Nominate and Ratify.
FRICTION IN THE PROCEEDINGS
Pew Popnllsts Wonld Act With the
Democrats Easy Way of the
"Citizens " Rutlneation.
SALEM. Or.. April 7. The Marion
County Democratic Convention today nom
inated a full Legislative and county ticket,
and, after adjournment, resolved Itself Into
a "citizens' convention," which ratlfledXhe
ticket." The result cannot be eld to be a
iusion nor a citizens movement, nor Is
the ticket straight Democratic It Is not
a fuelon because the ticket has not been
nominated or agreed to by the Populisms
nor any one authorized to act for them.
Only six of the 39 members of the Popullet
Central Committee -were consulted In mak
ing up the ticket, and these six say that
their committee will not countenance the
ticket for a moment. It Is not a "citizens' "
because none but Democrats participated
In the-meeting at which it was ratified.
Prominent Democrats call the "citizens
meeting" held tonight a farce. The ticket
Is as follows:
Representatives-John A Jeffries, Popu
list: John W. Jory. Populist: E. Hofer.
Independent: A. B. Huddlcson, Democrat;
'John B. Dlmlck. Democrat.
County Judge W. TV. Elder, Democrat.
Commissioner W. TV. Culver, Democrat.
SheriflVFrank Dnrbln. Democrat
Clerk W. L. Finzer, Democrat.
Recorder J. W. King, Democrat.
Treasurer J. C Matlock. Populist.
Afeeseor J. "ft. Hobart Republican.
Coroner J. "ft. Whltlock. Democrat.
Surveyor A. Gobalet Democrat.
School Superintendent A. J. Garland,
Justlco of Peace, at Salem J. O'Donald,
Democrat: Constable, John" Lewis, Demo,
The few Populists at the convention to
night declare that they were deceived and
that the Democrats failed to act In ac
cordance, with the understanding had with
their conference committee. It Is the cen
tral opinion that the Populist Central Com
mittee will get together and put up a
straight Populist ticket. E. Hofer and "ft.
E. Finzer said tonight that they had not
dee'ded to accept their nominations.
The convention opened with a hot scrap
between the D'Arcy and anti-D'Arcy fac
tions for the chairmanship. Though a
D'Arey man, John Bayne, was In the chair
end made some arbitrary rulings to sup
port his faction, his opponent, IT. T.
Slater, was chosen to preside by a vote of
147 to TS. The routine work was not de
void of friction, efforts being made for a
deal -nlth the Populists. Dr. "ft. S. Mott
was chosen chairman of the County Cen
tral Committee to succeed John Bayne.
Following this the delegates to the etate
convention and the precinct committee
men were chosen, and the convention ad
journed until evening, when ths confer
ence committee would report. "When the
delegates gathered in the evening it was
evident that the conference committee
was having trouble In making up a ticket.
The Populists had authorized their 33 pre
cinct committeemen to act for that party,
but only a half-dozen of the men were
present The conference committee final,
ly came in with a report which embodied
the ticket as given, except that the offices
of Judge and Recorder were left blank.
A motion to adopt the report precipi
tated a heated discussion. In which strong
apposition was made to a ticket bearing
the names of any but Democrats. Ont
delegate said that he was a. Democrat and
admired a man who ran upon his own
ticket: that when he wanted to vote for
a Republican he would vote for one who
had backbone enough to run on a Repub
lican ticket In behalf of the report It
was urged that there is no difference, ex
cept In name, between Democrats, Popu
lists and Silver Republicans: that In order
to succeed they must lay aside their party
ideas: that the Populists are coming to
the Democratic standard, and not vice
versa, and that Populists must Join the
Democratic ranks to accomplish what
they want The report was adopted. In
spite of protests from the Populists. The
convention filled tho nominations for
Judge, Recorder. Justice and Constable
and then adjourned.
The delegates immediately reorganized
us a "citizens convention, with the same
officers, and passed a motion providing
that the nominees of the Democratic con
vention be'made the nominees of this con
vention. A resolution was introccced by E. Hofer.
pledging the candidates for county offices
to a reduction of current expenses to J40,
000 per year. After some opposition this
was passed, and the meeting adjourned.
