W. J. FURNISH.
Portland, Apt. 2
W. J. Ftitnisfc, of
Pendleton, was nom
inated for governor
by tne republican
state convention this
Thn convention assembled at 11
o'clock to effect temporary organlza
tlon. It was apparent from the first
that W. J. Furnish, or renaieion,
would be the winner In the remarka
ble fight that has been put up for the
place at the head of the ticket. The
Furnish men had won out with Mult
nomah county, and during the night
that delegation had met and caucuss
nd with the result that they decided
to throw their strength to Furnish.
At the caucus 65 of the 67 delegates
were present, and that many were
added to Furnlsh's vote already se
cured. Before the Multnomah county
delegation decided to support the
Pendleton man, he had about 116
votes assured. The 67 added gave him
apparently 183, or 10 more than
enough to control the convention.
Early it was bruited about that
Johns, of Baker City, had withdrawn
in favor of Furnish, and that Geer
had nulled out. askine his supporters
to throw their strength to Ankeny, of
rt was annarnnt. that Ankeny could
not hold the Geer strength, and that
when the present governor loosenea
his hold upon his delegates they felt
free to scatter whither they desired
The thump given the opposition
when Multnomah cast her lot with
Furnish was so severe that things be
gan to come towards Furnish, and It
was early in the day claimed tnat x ur
nish would win the nomination by ac
No sooner was he nominated for
oonorreRn than Williamson, of Creek,
kept hiB word and called upon all of
his followers to exert every energy
for Furnish. The .Williamson people
aided materially In accompnsning tne
rasnlt. for Furnish.
The pressure was Intense. Interest
was deeper than has ever neiore Deen
the case in a governorship nomina
tion In Orfiiron. Every politician
of any influence in Oregon, with
few exceptions, was In portiana to
watch or take part In the great battle.
"""The Temporary Organization.
Portland, April 2.- The republican
state convention met at n ociock.
Senator R. A. Booth, of Lane county,
was made chairman, and Harrison
Allen, of Clackamas county, secretary.
After appointment of committees,
the convention adjourned to meet thlB
At 3:45 o'clock, the convention was
waiting for the report of the commit
tee on platform, before proceeding
with the nominations. At that hour
It was conceded on all sides that Fur
nish would receive the nomination,
and it was only a matter of requiring
time for the regular routine of the
convention to be gone through to
reach the naming of the Pendleton
Fifteen hundred badges had been
secured by the Furnish people and of
fered to the delegates ana otners.
When those badges were available
they lasted only long enough to per
mit their giving out, and soon the
Furnish supporters were apparently
numerous enougu to indicate victory
for the man whose name they uore.
Although there was considerable In
terest in the makeup of tho rest of
tit a tloirot tho fnntpst nvpr thn head
place hail absorbed attention and up
to the time that Furnlsh's nomination
was assured the pressure increased
like steam in a boiler in which there
in nlentv of water and a hot Are.
At 5:15 voting had proceeded, with
Furnish and Ankeny before the con
vention, and at that moment Furnish
had 176 votes to Ankeny's b&. lnsur
ing the nomination to the former. As
thn rnuntlntr went on. the Furnish
supporters broke forth into thunder
ous applause, so great tnat pauses
were necessary, xne convention was
in fonntant unroar. and as the
strength of the Pendleton man grew
and grew the jubilation was ueyona
description in its vehemence.
Again and again broke forth 'the
excited delegates, until all who shout
ed were hoarse and the air was rent
with thn fliers of the victors. It was
the most remarkable scene ever wit
nessed In an Oregon Btate convention,
and all the energy that bad been put
Into the previous campaign being
compressed Into tho few Bhort mo
ments of expressing satisfaction at
the outcome of the struggle.
The naming of Ankeny as the heir
to the Geer Bupport was the last at
tempt of the Furnish opposition to
stem the tide that was setting towards
the bunchgrass candidate. Geer
malo strenuous efforts to rally his
people to the Jacksonville banker,
Furnish waB written on tho winning
cards, and to Furnish went the
doubtful delegations that had hereto
fore held out' to watch for the direc
tion in which the band wagon was go
ing, and who would be the driver.
When tho vehicle was sighted, and it
was seen that, Furnish was Bitting
in the seat and handling the reins,
seate behind him went at a premium,
and soon it was loaded to the limit,
A gold weighing machine in the
Bank of England' is so sensitive that
an ordinary postage stamp If dropped
on the scale will turn the index on
the dial a distance of six Inches.
Entrenched behind tho bulwarks
of patronago and power in the state
house at Salem, T. T. Geer demanded
and strove to secure a renomination.
He had the backing of Senator Simon,
and lived In the Willamette valley,
to which nearly always has gone tho
Henry Ankeny, of Jacksonville,
shied his castor Into tho ring, and se
sured support In southern Oregon for
his governorship boom.
Stephen Lowell, of Pendleton, con
ducted a vigorous campaign for his
home delegation and for outBlde support.
C. A. Johns, of Baker City, made
thousands of boomers will lcavo dur
