bers of the South Dakota state dem

today in response to the call of Chair

ing the state convention, but of more
interest than this routine work Is the
discussion as to -what position will be
taken by the democrats in. the cam
paign of this year. Under the pro
visions of the law passed at the last
session of the legislature for ballot
reform, there can be no complete fu
sion between the democrats and pop
ulists, unless either party consents to
lose its identity in favor of the other.
The law provides that any ticket
placed on the ballot must be under
one party name or the other and the
same name cannot appear twice on
the ballot. This will force the reform
element to unite under the "name of
populist or democrat and place their
ticket under the one head, or else
form a united party under a new

First and foremost, it was a Furn
ish convention which assembled in
the circuit court room this morning.
The convention represented the
brains, brawn and balls!! of th
county of Umatilla in a very large de
gree. It was not a cut and dried af
fair, but it was especially noticeable
for its good humor, prompt business
methods and enthusiasm. The feel
ing for Furnish, while not particularly
demonstrative, there being nothing to
call out demonstrations, as Lowell
was not in the fight at all, was strong
and universal. The resolution en
dorsing him for governor passed unan
imously and a delegation standing
faithful to him was selected. The
same delegation was chosen for the
congressional convention, which gives
Furnish a very considerable advant
age in the future. The convention
was the most remarkable one ever
held in the county from the fact that
not a single speech over a minute in
length was made by anybody. All
controversies were settled by vote,
pleasantly and without friction of any
kind. Th e proceedings were as follows:
At 10:15 this morning the republi
can convention of Umatilla county
was called to order at the court house
by County Chairman F. W. Vincent,
who called for nominations for tem
porary chairman". L. B. Reeder nomi
