was then dispatched in search or the

failure to prosecute after having set
the machinery of the court in motion,
the costs were assessed against him

An Enthusiastic Gathering Pull of Con
fidence and Patriotism.
(Special to Tirr. Astokiax.
Tho Republican state convention
was called to order at 11 a.m. to-day,
in Masonic hall, by Joseph Simon,
chairman of the Republican central
committee. Tho Hon. Geo. H. Wil
liams was chosen temporary chair
man of the convention by acclama
tion. Thanking tho convention for
the honor conferred upon him. judgo
Williams outlined the political situa
tion, showing that tho times were
propitious of success, enlarging upon
the reasons why, and concluding his
remarks with:" "Cleveland has been
enthusiastically endorsed by the
Democratic state convention. A
strong effort will be made to make
this endorsement good and we have
been forewarned that emissaries will
be Bent here. Some will come openly,
some in disguise, to instruct the peo
ple of Oregon in Democratic doctrines
and to obtain votes of those, if there
are any such who can be influenced
by money. Oregon is a Republican
state. I'feel at liberty to notify those
foreign emissaries that the Republi
cans of Oregon cannot be coaxed or
induced to support the doctrines of
the administration Vhioh are opposed
to their every interest. We know
also that the prohibition party is
making a strong effort to draw votes
to its standard this year. I have no
fault to find with reasonable temper
ance principles, but the promoters of
the present'third party movement nre
trying, like Sampson with the pillars
of the temple of old, to pull down
and involve with themselves tho Re
publican party in one grand ruin.
Every effort being made by the pres
ent administration to transfer tho
control of both houses of congress,
together with all the executive de
partments, to the Democratic party.

throw away his vote upon the prohi

Into impossibility? (Shouts of 'No!
NoTj Is there any reason why the
Republican party should be absorbed ?
There are often personal grievances
of disappointed party mon, but this
is a time when patriotism calls upon
everyone to sacrifice personal inter
est, follow the flag at the head of our
columns, and. keeping step with tho
music of the Union, march on to vic
tory." (Loud and long-continued

of the secretary'of war in what seems
to be a studied attempt to delay the
improvement of the Columbia river,
and fully recognizing the paramount
importance of our great waterways as
to the regulation of freight charges not

but on the railways a3 well. We in
sist that our rivers should be free and
open to the sea, and demand of the
general government liberal appropri
ations therefor, and recommend to
the next legislature that proper steps
be taken to secure state aid therefor."
The chairman, upon presenting the
platform, apologized for the delay,
stating that, unlike the Democratio
platform, tho Republican convention
had not been formed by the visit and
instruction of a distinguished visitor
from a sister state with a prepared
platform in his pocket.

DIFFICULTIES OF INLAND NAVIGATION".
Portland, April 11. The Clatsop
county delegation to the Republican
state convention, and sundry other
passengers, wore delayed on tho
Thompson this morning. The For
farshire stuck direotly in the chan
nel below tho flouring mills, and on
the arrival of the Thompson at the
dock she was immediately detailod to
go to hor help. The Oklahoma
pulled her out of tho way of tho Or
egon, which wanted to got down and
could not by reason of the narrowness
of tho channel, till finally, by tugging
and backing shortly after, seven
steamers got the vessel off and backed
down with her nearly six miles; then
the Thompson let go and brought the
passengers to Portland, hungry and
ready for breakfast
There was considerable good-natured
jeering on the part of the Asto
rians at the attempt to get essels up
through n channel- so narrow and
shallow, which emphasizes the neces
