Their: Prdtest Unheeded in i tKe County Convention-
'' One "hundred and seven of the one hunr
dred and; atxty-evni delegate selected
to the Republican, county v convention,
met thjt mernSn In A. QU. W. ball, and
ratified the state prepared jit th Inde
pendent caucus lt tight. ; ; : '
The session was devoid of excitement;
the-ratification being the dullest and dry
est of routine work. With very few e
captions the Regular Republicans refused
to partlolpete.j ; 1
r,The greater number of the Regulars
met last 'night and prepared' a protest
which was read In the convention at the
-request of - J Mills,- who, however, did
not sign It,, The protest declared that
the majority, did not act fairly, or In
good faith and that It was Useless for
the minority to attend the further se!
slon of the convention. The only. Regular
Republican delegates present .were:
A. L. Mills. B. B. Cardwell, Col.' John
McOwcken, WUWs &' Dunnlwy, Fred T.
Merrill, 84 J, LaFrans and U R. Wheeler.
With the exception of Mr. , Mills, who
made a brief spech, wnen Jie presented
the protest, nope of these rentlemen had
anything to say during the deliberations
or tne body. In fact, there was lltu to
say, as everytRlng was cut and dried. '
Chairman Courtney rapped the conven
tion to order at 10:90 o'clock. The ab
sence of the delegates who were elected
on ;be Regular Republican ticket, Wat
; the conspicuous figure . of the opening
scene." One-third of the chairs were va
cant, and the only Regular Republicans,
, wuh a few shining exceptions, in the an
dlence wer seated in, the. gallery
A. JU MU)s got the floor in the start and
saia ne .spoke 'as one of th minority.
which ha grown steadily leas. He t
iievea tnat tne primary Jaw . was very
. fair and the eleotion held under It Vas
also fair,". He believed that the majority
should rule, but It was contrary to the
spirit of the primary-law to refuse to
4 recognise the minority. He protested
against any caucus, action where 63 dele
gates could dlotate to the ' convention.
Ho also believed that none should quit
.Ho knew that this was, not the sentiment
of his faction. He was no quitter and
did not , believe, tn going out and playing
in somebody else's back yard. He
thought th minority should accept the
. will of; the majority; This was. he said.
the 'only way which the party in Mult
nomah County, could hold together.
Mr. Mills then presented a protest of
the minority, signed by fifty delegates,
which, the secretary, read.
THE PROTEST. .
In the, protest regular Republicans an
nounced their intention of not sitting in
the vonventioa oV sharing the responsi
biuty of IX acts. They resented th.e ac
tion of tb.e 'Independents in the first con
vention, and .charged them with usurpa
tion of rights and ignoring the minority
and with, violation p promises;, with mak
log a machine Instead of smashing one!
The protest went on toisay: VTh
-wrongs we,, complain of Is not that you
madea slaU, not that you are a ma
chine, so much as that you have violated
your solemn promise to the people that
' yon would never have any machine or
make slater A. ,3
"Tot? . did not mean to 'have us pftrtlcl
lat in, the Seleottoa of candidates. Such
is your avowaL '.You do not excuse that
. conduct; you defend it. It may truthful
ly be said of your nominees for the -Ieg-,
Islature that no one of them voted Jthe
county Republican, ticket in the last elec
tion nd tha alt of them ' were found
among' Its ' most active opponents; who
supported and voted the opposition ticket.
, fltnoe you arrogate to yourselves. an ex
clusive right to; hAme political ofllcers,
we can have no political function to per
orm In the convention. Slnceyou de
ride us on the floor of (the convent (on as
sent by "the machine" and treated us
as Inferiors in standing, we do not think
It oomports with th dignity 6f the posi
tion conferred upon u by the people to
alt longer In your presence, merely to
usurpation of .the Independents and
', arbitrary proceedings.
