while the other side insisted on having
the committee's report disposed of.
Several speeches were mado and a
good deal of warmth displayed, which
rose to fever heat when one delegate tir
ing of the wrangle moved "the previous
question." After considerable further
had been said, the chair said that he
would havo the convention take a
vote on the question of adopting the
minority report, aud that the vote
would have to be by yeas aud nays.
In this vote 93 of those present
answered to their names, 51 voting
"yes," and 12 uno,"
This was interpreted to mean that
the delegates selected by the meeting
at the opera house on March 31st were
recognized by some of the precincts
outside of Astoria.
The result was received with con
siderable applause by those who re
mained after the vote on the propo
sition had been announced, the hilar
ity of the Democratic contingent of
spectators on the back seats being
suppressed, bnt none the less satisfac
tory to them.
After the result of the vote was an
nounced, adopting the minority re
port of the committee on credentials
the victors were hilariously happy,
manifesting their applause by clap
ping their hands, stamping their feet
and then by cheering, during which
time Secretary Patton and all the
others who had voted against the re
ception of the minority report, went
ont of the hall, and the victors were
left in possession of the convention.
They seemed undecided at this
move, and surprised at the departure,
but soon rallied and business was
commenced by a motion thatB S.
Worsley bo chosen as temporary sec
retary' which was carried unani
mously, and he took his seat.
J. W. Welch moved to proceed to
the election, by a rising vote, of seven
delegates to tho state convention,
which was carried without opposition.
Each was nominated and voted for
until the five following were chesen:
Jav Tattle, a A. McGuire, Martin
Foard, J. II. D. Gray and J. W. Welch.
Then it seemed as if things were
getting mixed, and there were numer
ous inquiries propounded, and several
spoke as to whether they were pro
ceeding in the regular way, until W.
A. Sherman moved to reconsider the
vote by which five delegates had been
elected, and proceed to elect seven on
one ticket, by ballot, after nominations
had been made. This motion pre
vailed. Robert Carnithers and W. H. Twi
light were appointed tellers, and the
following twelve men were placed in
nomination for delegates.
J. W. Welch, B. S. Worsley, C. A.
McGuire, J. W. Hare, JayTuttle, J.
O. Spencer, W. J. Ingalls, E. W.
Wright, C. J. Curtis, Martin Foard, J.
H. D. Gray and C. IL Stockton.
A ballot was taken, each member of
the convention writing on a ticket
seven out of the above whom he pre
ferred for delegates.
When the votes were about to be
counted it was discovered that the
permanent organization was not yet
effected, and after remarks by several,
C. J. Curtis moved that a committee
of three on permanent organization
aud order of business be appointed by
the chair, which was carried, and the
following were appeinted: .brank
Ward, C. J. Curtis and Dr. Jay Tuttlo.
After a short conference the com
mittee reported the followihg recom recem recom
mendateons: First That tho temporary officers bo
made tho permanent officers of the con
vention. Second That wo proceed to tho elec
tion of seven delegates to represent this
county in tho Republican stnto conven
tion at Portland.
Third That a county central commit
tee bo chosen, consisting of three mem
bers from Astoria, and one from each
other precinct in tho county.
On motion, the report was adopted.
The ballot for delegates to the state
convention, which had previously
been taken was counted, anil resulted
as follews: Dr. Jay Tuttle, 5G votes;
C. A. McGuire, 51; J. W. Welch, 13;
J. W. Hare, 43; Martin Foard. 34; J.
O. Spencer, 31; Frank AVard, 25; B. S.
Worsley, 25; C. J. Curtis, 20; R. Car
nithers, 20;E.W. Wright, 15; J. H.
D. Grav, 14.
B. S. Worsley and Frank Ward
having received the same number of
votes each, the former declined in
favor of Mr. Ward, thus leaviug
elected the seven highest as follews:
Tuttle, McGuire, Welch, Hnre, Foard,
Spencer aud Ward.
Dr. Tattle moved that the county
central committee consists of three
members from Astoria, two from Up
per Astoria, and one from each
other precinct in the county, and that
the delegates hero present from each
precinct designate the names of the
men they desire to be on the com
mittee. The motion prevailed.
On motion of J. H. D. Gray the con
vention at 6:03 p. m. voted to take a re
cess until 750 p.m.
