WALLOWA COUNTY POLITICS.

Tho republican county convention

bo accepted or rejected next June, by
tbe electors of WulloWu. 1 qiioto from

lion. Three Hack had sent down two
sets of delegates two for the ring i
and two for the people. It seemed
that Thice Hack held the pnsrngo of,
tho Hubicon. Humble w.:s tbo ring !
candidate Hotiso the people's for clerk.
Over these two men, was the relative
strength of tho opposing force to bo
directed; houeo the value of tho Three
Unci: delegates in that tight for su
premacy. Tho committee on creden
tials, retired, contended, returned anil
reported. It had agreed to submit tho
Thice Buck muddle to the convention.
Liout. lioup moved Hint the contesting
delegates liom Tlnco Buck bo per
mitted, each to state his case. The
motion prevailed. From the state
ments made the following is deduced.
Promptly at 10, clock p. m. tho com
mitteeman called the house to
order. lie thou stated tho object of
tho convention. W. J. Drumhill was
chosen secietary. W. M. Hepburn and
V. .1. Drumhill wero named lor dele
gates to the county convention. Thy
"were then li.clcd without opposition.
Tho polls wero then declined closed by
tho chairman. Kuinblu and his ad
herents were jTrcsent, according to
Speaker Heed's rulings, but refused to
take any part in tho pruccocdings, up
to the closing of tho polls. Humble,
like Napoleon at. Waterloo, expected
reinforcements. Ho had oidorod them.
Without them ho doubttd bis strength
to capture the delegates of his homo
precinct, two dotuocra's anil live re
publicans responded, counting himself.
He piofen d not to go before tho county
convention with such a following a
suborned, illiterate foreigner, a slieop
democrat, a nonresident and live
straights. "What can wo do?" asked
tho chief. "Yolo what men we've
present." icplicd his Oiderly. So
without reopening the polls. .!. W.
Hiinkin and Hob. Uico, a s'teop dem
ocrat, wero named and received tho
votoof the Humblo following Drum
hill and Hepburn having lvcivcd 11 vo
clean republican votes. Thee are the
fael( in the case of tho Three Huek
mudilli'. A motion was made to reject
the Humble delegates. Howling tho
motion much was said forum I against
its adoption. Tho disputants waxed
warm, earnest, angiy. Kou.se saw his
opportunity und omluueed it. Ho ad
droned the chair and was recognized.
In a f. w well cbeson woids ho begged
his delegate friends to vote against tho
pending resolution. Ho hail rather be
defeated in tho convention than to
jeopardize tho success of the republican
party next June, iu this county. Now
came Humble's opportunity; but he
failed to embrace it. Had ho thrown
hii 1 into the broach made in tho
ranks of his delegates by House's
inanuamiuity he would have saved his
friends liom humiliation and himself
from an ignominious defeat. Why did
he not cpiing tin in his placo and wiy :
"Ah Mr. House, 1 admire your di
plomacy. It is worthy of imitation
and commendation. let us meet half
way in this dispute. You take one of
the Three Htiok delegates and give ino j
one." Had ho said this ho would havo j
regained the vantage ground lost; but
ho did not. Lieutenant Houp, with j
his forces, swept through tho broach ,
and routed his enemies foot and horse,
The jKiiding motion prevailed. Tho
ring delegates from Tlueo Huek woro
seated, Tho decks woro cleared for
llnal decisive action. V. I). McOully
named J. A. Humblo of Three Huek,
clerk. Young Houp named L J.
House, of Alder. Hy piecinolH tho
do'ogaten cent up their ballots to

: Editor Uukoun hcorr:
"It's n long lane th.it hits no turn"
they my, and J have at leant foiirjl the
turn in a lime I've been following for
jiicl two week, nt a tingle heat, no
fuleo jockeying or flying tracks.
This is Montana ink, pen, paper,
and stamp. It is Montana all 'toiind,
even to the way Ii-oiltlie envelope.
Thi town is foity-tive miles fioin the
N. 1'. railroad, in Meagher county,
SniiMi Uiv.-r valley, 75 miles from the
capital city, and is located at hoiiiu
med.eal springs that bear the sweet
scented title ol White .Sulphur .Springs.
Yon may judge for yourself the tort.
This country beats Washington. Al
though in Washington linger some
nutnonos that are m aranddearto nie,
and that bubble up in my mind fresh
and sweet as tod i biscuits in the sur
face of a swill pail, when stirred up by
the famous tiamp's apparatus, com
monly known as a "blow pipe."
It was in Washington that I mot
Hill Nye yes, met him face to face,
and neither of us wilted. I To looked
so confounded familiar that I was near
ly on the point of grasping his list, and
saying, "Hollo, Hilly, old boy, shako
and let's have (something;" but I sud
id- ! -,'!
denly came into possession of enougl
. . i . :
3'., tJ, ;fl n,Vl i jll t a n
I well-bred gentlonian would greet an-
other, and tbo tumult ceased. When
I left Spokane Lulls, Mr. xyc followed
mc to Htitte yes, really camped on
my trail all the way along. I don't
know what Hill's intent was, but he
followed ino -100 miles. I thought of
what tbo boys in Union mod to eny,
"and the villian still pursued her."
In coming over to-day on tbo coach
from Towns-end, wo caino in contact
with a small regiment of that ancient
order of pioneers, known as llocky
mountain fcheop. Now, although it
had never been my good fortune to
imkiil mii rf lliiu uliftirrrr bt nf lwrhnril
I a f .ili ; , j
they looked as familiar as that old ,
stocking of mother's that wo used to !
keen a little loose change in at home.
And knowing as thoy surely did my
groat lovo for wild animals, their ac
tions toward mo wero so cold and dis
tant that two miles would scarcely
cover thodinerenee between us. I was
(ptito shocked at their uncivilized
manners, and wished that I could have
tlivm under tbo care of state board of
tdiiealois for an hour or two.
You may just tell John Minnlclc for
me that ho missed the finest part, of
earth on his recent journey. His
Utah letter would bo a baby by the
sido of one ho could have written on
the beautiful city of White Sulphur
.Springs, and vicinity, lie could Inivo
found diamonds hero where ho did not
find mud in that and Kansas Oily.
And tell Al. Gardner that the
watch 1 bought of him is still alive and
doing well. It runs spasmodically,
and also stops the same. It keeps
good timo and registers every mile I
walk. I can ro-poelfully recommend
it to gentlemen who don't euro to bo
put to tho inconvenienco of paying
taxes on a costly watch, and who still j
havo a strong d'esiro to know just ex-
aotly when to chow. Tell K. S. Mo- j
Comas that a gallon of steam from '
these springs would knock tho socks
oll'a whole tank full of Medical Lake
water. Totem of Health would not bo
an inch high in January beside tbo
great qualities ot White .sulphur
Springs, and still wo are not booming
tho place. Tell Turner Oliver that tho
democrats of Montana aru not such
lobust, hearty, avoirdupois fellows as
Oregon democrat aro, but they aro a
"darned site" more numerous. And
tell all tho folks in Union, dear Scout,
that when tho still hours of midnight
havo closed my eyes in sleep, I dream
of them, and wake praying that elec
tric light may bo their lot foiever and
over. Amen. H. W. HriTMA.v.
