. - vT i?wsi"jr & -- 4 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, Prohibitionist. Justlco of Peace, at Salem J. O'Donald, Democrat: Constable, John" Lewis, Demo, crat 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. CALL IT "CITIZENS' TICKET. Conclusion of the Clackamas Fnslon Istn Miller for Congress.

April 7.-Suropter has settled down to business with the arrival of Spring. Tho reign of the professional real estate boomer has to some extent given place to the man with business methods and an intention to build up a solid community. Last Fall and Winter the demand for building accommodations was so great that any kind of house would bring any price, because of absolute necessity. Boomers took advantage of these condi tions and forced the prices beyond rea son In many instances. One of tie best evidences of a healthy condition Is the. shift that Is taking place from this man. ner of operating to the cleaning up of streets and alleys and tho erection of substantial edifices. It Is no longer a quostlon of how .many lots are sold in j day and at how much advance, but how many of those having purchased are go ing to build, and the character of the Duildlng. A large number of structures of all classes are to be erected this Spring. The townslto company is preparing to grade a mile of residence streets at Its own ex pense. The two business streets are be ing graded and planked. A half dozen large warehouses are crowded to their full capacity with mer chandise of all kinds for outside towns and camps. Including machinery, great and small. Sumpter Is now on the verge of a substantial commercial growth. Republicans Accept. SALEM, April 7.
