jos. o. Wilson.
Whereas. It has pleased the Al
mighty God to remove by death our
late Republican Congressman. Hon.
J. G. Wlson, and as bis death Is the
cause of the meeting of this Conven
tion, we deem it eminently proper that
we shold express our sorrow and ac
knowledgement of the great loss we
have sum-red as a partv and a people
by his sudden and untimely death.
Therefore be it
ttesolved btjthe IiepubHom Cowvntion,
That we, as a party, deeply deplore
and mourn his death for the reason that,
hv his inteirritv and UDruzhtness of
conduct as a citizen, tlie purity of his
private life, his ability as a statesman,
and above all his high Christian char
acter and scholarly attainments, which
elevated him above the mere politician
rendered him a credit to the party and
State and an eminently nt representa
tive of a moral, intelligent and trinity
people, who fully appreciate the neces
sity of elevating to office good men
only, who are and must be representa
tive men of tlie party and State.
The Committee on Platform report
ed, and the report was adopted.
REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON RESOLU
TIONS, 1. liwilr , That we look with pride and
satisfaction upon tlie prosperous eondil ion
of our country as the natural results of Its
application ot the principles controlling
the Renublican party in the administra
tion of national affairs, and that we reaf
firm tlie principles of the party as hereto
fore enumerated in its Conventions, and
declare that their practical enforcement is
essential to file welfare of the country and
the. maintenance of the rightsand liberties
of the people.
2. Jiwjlv ri. That tlieChiel Executive of
the na1 ion bus our unabated ami unquali
fied (jmfidetiec in bislniegriiv.abilltyand
enlightened patriotism In the' a lminlsi ra
tion of the dntlesof bis high odlee.
3. Ii shIv rf, Tttiat we point the discord
ant nnd chanic: political elements which
oppose the Renublican parly to-day to t be
grand advance made by our (ioverument
on its political s anding, financial credit,
commercial imporiancce and material de-
velomneni otlbc resources of the whole
conni rv as the direct, natural ami inevita
ble result of this enlightened policy and
principles of t be Republican party.
. R gotvedf That we denounce the recent
act of Congress known as the Hack-Pay bill
and Ibe voting fur tin unnecessary Increas
ed pay for services already rendered.
a. ll imlviti, 1 hat we denounce all Credit
Mobilier transact tons, wba;evor their
form, an I we heartily approve of the ac
tion of the late Congress in exposing and
fi. Ri xotwd. That we favor retrenchment
and reform an. I rigid economy in the ex
penditure of the public money in the Slate
and National administration,' and file re
duction of taxation as rapidly as consistent
with good government and' maintenance
of the public credit.
7. R .vJivd, That we cordially welcome to
our shores the oppressed of all countries,
and remembering ihat our adopted fellow
citizens have always proved loyal to the
flag of l he Republic, we demand for them
the fullest protection of the laws, ami fa
vor increased facilities for naturalization.
But we condemn the Coolie trade, ami all
forms of involuntary servitude, and atnrm
that the safety and prosperity of free In
stitutions demand more stringent laws to
prevent such traffic.
H. Raolved, That the interests of ihis
State, and thedemands of its commercial
relations with tlie other Stales of the
Union, both present, and prospect Ivaly,
will warrant a IPieral expenditure on the
part oi the National (ioverument in the
Improvement of our harbors and river
channels, and it is the true policy of our
people that they should be so reprnscniod
in congress as snail most eneeuveiy at
complisb ibis result.
9. Rwilv'it, That true economy in the
management of the public lands of tlio
roiled States, as well as the settlement of
our vast domain and the development of
its resources, demand liberal grants of
public lands in tne construction ol rail
roads and other nubile works, with such
limitations as will secure the ult imate sale
to actual settlers.
10. R miltvd, Tluit we are in favor of Con
gressional grants of public lands to aid In
the construct ion of a Railroad from Port
land, Oregon, to some point of junction
wilh the Central and Union Pacific Rail
roads in Salt Lake valley, and of a railroad
from the Rogue Blver valley to a Junction
wli li the Central Pacltlc.
11. R mlvfd, That the Interests of com
merce demand the construction of a break
water at Port Orford in this State for that
li. R miml. That tho profecion of the
commerce of the Columbia river demands
the placing of a Steam revenue cutter will
all necessary appliances at the mouth of
18. R wived, That the producing, com
mercial and industrial interests of the
country should have the best undelieapesi
of transportation possible, and while capi
tal invested in such means of transit
should have a reasonable remuneration,
those inlerests should lie fully protected,
and the facilities for transportation should
be adjusted so fur as possible to the wants
of every part of the State, with no unjust
discrimination as toany sect ion, person or
class, and as capital ami laiior are Insejiar
bly connected and mutually dependent,
the resources of 'he State will lie liest de
veloped and the best Intemslsofallclusses
promotod by mutual concessions and ac
commodations Ijetwcen lnlwand capital,
and between the producer and carrier.
H. rt iiuftrd, Tliat we are opposed to the
setting apart of the Wallowa valley forun
Indian lieservatlon, ana tne cannida o oi
this Convention Is hereby pledged to use
his influence to secure to white settlers
the lands hi said valley; that the Modoc
murderers of citizen's at Lost river and
Tula like in Xovember last, should at
once be delivered to Ibe civil authorities
ol tbisState, that they may lie dealt with
according to law; that we are in favor of a
humane peace policy towards peaceable
Indians, but full and complete protection
should at all times lie given to the settlers
on our frontiers against the depredations
of hostile and refractory tribes.
Mr. Baker of Union, offered the iol
lowing resolution :
Hesolted, That whatever may have
been the misfortunes, faults or short
comings oi the Hon. J. H. Mitchell,
U. S. Senator of this State, In bis early
ornate life, we neither apologize, pass
judgment upon, nor justify him. but
express our unqualified belief that by
his many years ol consistent, up
right and honorable conduct in this
State he has outlived any imputations
cast upon him and that to-day not
only the Republican party but a large
majority of the iieople of this State
have entire confidence in his integrity,
ability and patriotism, and that he will
fa ith Ail ly and ably represent them in
the United States Senate.
A motion to table the resolution was
lost, by a vote of 73 against 34.
On a motion to adopt the resolution,
Mr. Himnan of Washington made a
hot speech against the adoption of the
resolution. Said tlie adoption of tlie
resolution would kill the Republican
party that any man nominated as
Candidate for Congnu by this Cooveu-
tion would be defeated, and mora to
the same effect.
Mr. Dolph, in a few stirring remarks
nrged the adoption of the resolution.
Mr. Baker moved the previous question.
Mr. Inwson moved to adjourn. Motion
lost by 24 ayes to 72 noes.

Mr. Baker of Union, was truly
sorry to see this discussion In thef'on
vention. Among other things the
Committee adopted resolutions lament
ing the death of Hon. Jos. G. Wilson.
Mr. Nesmith was an enemy to Mr.
Wilson in the late canvass now he to
a candidate for Mr Wilson's place.
The opposite side of the house and I
am sorry to say there are two sides to
(his house predict that, the Republican
party will be beaten if the resolution
passes', We on this side don't threaten
to disorganize and break up the Re
publican iarty even if the resolution
does not pass. Now who are the dls-
orgainzers. the onposers of this res-
oiutou or those who sustain it r It ne.
(the speaker), thought Mr. Mitchell
was guilty of high crimes and misde
meanors he would introduce a resolu
tion coudemiiig Mr. Mitchell, and
requesting him to resign. ThntVould
show at least honesty ot principle.
Mr. Baker continued his speech to
some length: was interrupted by Mr.
Cross of Marion, and Himnan of
Washington, several times the Chair
ruled the discussion or colloquy out ol
Mr. Mulkey moved the previous ques-.
tion, which was followed by a motion to

The (invention refused toentertain the

of nrincitiles paramount to the success of a
single man. Thai the charges against our
senator ne neuneramnnea or denied it
wos a matter uhii which be would not
decide until tne wfioie lesiimony was In.
Until such time he should hold the matter
in abeyance. That the canvass would be
but a short one, and that li was due to the
party t bat a young and vigorous man, one
thoroughly comprehending the political
issues of i he day, should be placed in nom
ination. He was not that man. and after
