THE DALLES, OREGON, FRIDAY, APRIL 10, L896.; :
Wrangling oyer the Report
of Credentials Committee.
A COMPROMISE FINALLY EFFECTED
Moore and Hlcbell for Joint Senator,
and Jones and Huntington for
The Telegram thus relates what trans
pired on the opening of the Republican
state convention in Portland.
The balance of 'power of the Republi
can party of Multnomah county weighs
in the balance. The scales are in the
hands of the credential committee of the
state convention assembled today in the
exposition building. With the seven
men composing that committee rests the
fate of the two warring factions of the
city. The line is to be drawn. At least,
so it is alleged by one side, for the
champions of the Carey faction, who are
to appear before the committee, and are,
as rumor goes, to demand a decisive
settlement of the question. Either they
are to be regularly accredited delegates
from Multnomah county or they are to
be nothing. The Simon people, on the
other hand, as the men who held their
convention at the place appointed ; as
the majority which stayed with that
hall, and after the bolting of - the Carey
Hume faction, finding themselves left to
nominate a Republican - ticket which
could be called legal under the conven
tion call, nominated and placed in the
field that ticket, will demand that they
be seated and cast the 43 votes allotted
to Multnomah county."
And bo stood the situation when at
11 :15 this morning Chairman George A.
Steel, of the Republican state central
committee, opened the convention.
It was no sooner declared open than
C. W. Parrish, of Grant county, placed
in nomination ior chairman General
George H. Williams. The nomination
. was received with cheers and carried by
acclamation. The country delegates
were the potent power, and they pro
posed to see the convention run on lines
devoid of any tinge of the strife among
the Multnomah delegates.
In accepting the nomination, General
Williams said :
"Gentlemen : This ezpkession of your
confidence in calling me to the chair of
this convention is appreciated, and to
the best of my ability I shall try to dis
charge the duties impartially. There
are many questions to come before ns,
many delegates to vote and many com
mittees of importance to be nominated.
It is well, therefore, that we proceed to
business and I will not take up your
time with a speech. This I will say,
however: So far as balloting is con
cerned I will recognize no factions. This
is a Republican convention, and we
should all be Republicans, and, so feel
ing, shall I make my rulings. Let us
proceed to business."
Friendly, of Lane county, nominated
A. B. Aiken for temporary secretary.
The nomination received a cumber of
seconds, and Mr. Aiken was declared
J. M. Patterson, of The Dalles, then
moved that a committee of seven on cre
dentials be appointed. The motion carried.-'
. i .
The make-up of this committee meant
life to either one faction or the other of
the Multnomah delegates. The im
portance of the naming of the men who
would constitute it was realized, and for
a moment a hush fell over the conven
tion in the expectation that the chair
would at once announce its appointees.
But the chair took ita time: To the ut
most General Williams meant to be im
During the interim that followed Will
iam Kapua announced that as secretary
of the state committee he would coun
tersign the return transportation of the
delegates if the tickets wore brought to
him at Irecess.
A motion that a committee of five on
permanent organization and order of
business be 'appointed, passed without
creating a stir.
. Chairman Williams then named the
committee on credentials as follows: J.
M. Patterson, of Wasco, chairman ; H
B. Clymer, of Baker ; J. M. Church, of
Union; Claude Gatch, of Marlon; F. J
Taylor, of Clatsop; S. A. Dawson, of
Linn ; E. M. Brattan, of Lake.
Committee on permanent organiza
tion and order of business, appointed
are: J. E. Magers, of Yamhill; E. L.
Smith, of Wasco; : A. J. Johnson, ot
Linn; . .Walcott, of Jackson ; W,
H. Conyers, of Columbia. : . .-
At 2:30 the committee on credentials
finished their work of passing on the
country delegates from whom no contest
was either expected 'or materialized
At 2:45 o'clock the hearing of the ar
guments and statements of the two op
posing sides was begun, the Cary people
being given the opening and the Simon
speakers the closing. For the Frank -
Mioto-Hume faction, District Attorney
Hume was the champion, engaged in
showing the credentials committee the
enormity of offenBe committed by the
Simon people in having employed de
puty sheriffs to guard the polls. When
he had finished, Senator Dolph laid be
fore the credentials committee the pro
stitution of the police force of Portland
to the wishes of the politicians holding
the offices governing it.
- The committee on credentials pre
sented a report seating all delegates ex
cept those from Multnomah county.
As regarded Multnomah there was a ma
jority and two minority reports. Tho
majority report seated the Simon dele
gation, signed by Patterson, Church,
Gatch, Bratlain and Dawson. The first
minority report recommended the seat
ing of delegates who the committee be
lieved were elected by the majority of
the members of the county and city con
vention, which convened April 4th.
This report bore the signature of H. V.
Clymer. The Becond . minority . report
waa signed by F. J. Taylor, who said :
"In my " opinion, the late primary
election held in the city of Portland was
net conducted by the legal Republican
voters of said city, and I am of the
opinion that the delegates elected thereat
were not representatives of such legal
voters. Such being the case, and both
parties participating in said primaries,
so far as appears, being equally at fault,
I am of the opinion that this convention
should seat neither, delegation, as a
matter of right. '
"Hcwever, as the county of Multno
mah is entitled to representation in this
convention, and as it is now too late to
resubmit the matter to the voters of said
county, I would hereby recommend :
"First That Hon. Geo. H. Williams
and Hon. Sol Hirsch, who were upon
both tickets voted for at said primaries,
be admitted to seats in this convention.
"Second That the remainder of the
seats entitled to be filled by Multnomah
county be filled by the admission of 48
persons, 23 of whom shall be selected by
each set of contesting delegates from
After the reading of the report in
which the entire committee agreed, it
was adopted. '
.Patterson of Wasco then moved the
adopted' of the majority report.
Clymer moved to substitute the first
Brown of Morrow moved to substitute
the second minority report (Taylor). In
stating the last motion, the chairman
"I will take the liberty to say that, in
my opinion, the adoption of this report
is the proper course to pursue to pro
mote harmony in the Republican party
in Multnomah county.''
This announcement was greeted with
very loud cheerB.

others, the second minority (Taylor's)
