A. E. Rcamcs o t
Platform Strictly An Anti-Trust
OneIt Was Adopted
- " Unanimously.
Albany, April It. A. E. Reamea of
Jackson county wa nominated for
congressman on the first ballot by the
democratic convention of the First
Oregin district thl morning. The
other candidates were 3. A. Jeffrey
of Marlon, W. Kelser of Marion and
William Galloway of Clackamas. To
cement the various Interest and avoid
dissensions, the several applicants had
been placated with honorary appoint
ments In the convention, thus greasing
Reamea' pathway and providing for his
unanimous nomination. An anti-trust
platform was adopted unanimously.
Chalnmn Bam White opened the
campaign with long speech for bar
mony, producing a soothing effect;
other speakers also contributing. Of
the 10 delegates II were present,
with but few proxies, thus Indicating
the enthusiasm prevalent among the
democrat ovw the district.
J. K. Weatherford, temrorary chair
man; C. V. Galloway, temporary sec
retary., and U. B. Montague of I,'nn,
assistant secretary, were made perma
Tlie platform was adopted unani
mously as follows:
"We are unalterably opposed to the
present trust dictation of our financial
tuilff legislation, especially as exmp-
lined by the Atdrich and Fowler bills
now pending before congress, and de
clare such control harmful to good gov
"There Is an overwhelming demand
from a vast majority of the people for
revision of the tariff along rational
lines. We repudiate the absurd prop
osition of continuing high protection on
products of the gigantic trusts now
grown to plethoric wealth under gov
"We demand favorable action In lelu
of mere promises In securing federal
Improvement of our river and har
bors. "W demand the passage of effective
law controlling the trusts, and sincere
efforts to enforce them.
"Publlo lands belong of right to the
peopta and any attempt to alienate
said lands -contrary to law should be
condemn -at the bar of public opin
ion, we therefore favor an honest adm
inistration of the land department, as
well aa all other departments.
"The administration of Governor
Chamberlain Is Justly receiving the
commendation of the people, Irrespect
Ive of party, apd the record of the dem
ocratlo party In the recent legislature
reflects honor upon the party, and Wl'l
redound to the welfare of the state.
We commend their earnest endeavor
to curtail publlo expenditures In the
Interest of the taxpayers."
Reamea in his speech, confessed that
It had long been his desire to go to
congress nnd that he expected to ee
hi ambition realised.
After cheering Beamea, the conven
tion adjourned at noon.
Cambridge, Mass., April ll.-Oeneral
Ben Vlljoen, eecond In command of the
Boer army, lectured upon some of the
phases of the South African conflict
before the Harvard Union last night.
He received a most enthusiastic, greet
ing. Tlhs was his first lecture In this
country. ' He related hi experiences
with a small force In prolonging the
fight against the British and then crit
icised the British army, saying Its
chief fault was the lack of Independ
ence of the soldier. He said that with
out an officer tor command, the rank
Jackson ; County
and file were absolutely helpless, and
that most of the officers were little bet
ter than the privates, for score of
them w ho were captured were found to
be unable to do such a simple thing a
roi k th;lr meals. He said ths British
soldier could not shoot, having little
knowledge of firearms. In rushing one
camp and rapturing It the Boer found
the soldiers were shooting at a H.200
years aftter the Boers' case became
Uoei were creeping up. He said the
IkM-rs lived on whatever they captured
from the British anny apd for nine
months went without salt.
In conclusion General Vlljoen aald
Kngland had promised to give them
fair treatmsnt, and later what would
be practically freedom. , At present
the Boers were merely 4 conquered
people In the worst of poverty, , He
mid the reason the war lasted for two
year) after the Boer case became
hopeless was because they were cut off
from outslds communication and were
looking fur a Lafayette or a Dewey to
turn up to aid them In their fight.

campaign for the control of party pol
itics In the history of pmaha city .pol
itics ended this afternoon In a split In

inate a city ticket. The supporters of
Mayor Moores, who wished to secure-
his nomination for a third term, and
those opposed to him were almost even
ly divided. '
On the call of wards for the nomina

After sight wards had been called and
voted, Chairman .Goss of the Ninth
ward demanded the poll of the Second
ward. The chairman ignored him and
ordered the secretary to proceed with
the roll call. The convention was soon
In an uproar, and the police docked
onto the floor to preserve order, and
forcibly pushed a number of delegates
Into their seats.'
Antl-Moores men claim the chairman
was arbitrary In his ruling, and when
the t-halrman declared Moores nominal

met In another hall, organised and ad'
Joudned until Monday night, when it
is stated a full ticket will be placed In
the field. The remainder of the ticket
was nominated without further dis
turbance. - - :
