Urant county, Bound mwry men, were
tin ted del.gatea to the St. Ixjuls con
vention, and Inatrueud for McKlnlcy.
I. Ilia' nomination waa brought about by
a combination of Kills toa.t with the
antl-Slmon delegates from Multnomah
county. When the convention met this
morning and elected C. W. Fulton, of
Clatsop, chairman, and A. W. Patterson,
of Ileppner, secretary. It was apparent
that the antl-Slmon men would at least
have a representation In the convention.
Committees were appointed on creden
tials and order of business, and the
convention adjourned until 4:20.
Il waa nearly o'rlo k before the com
mltl.e on credentials reported. There
were three reports auocnttted, a majority
and two minority reports. The majority
rrfiort favored seating the anti-Simon
delegation: the first minority report fa
vored the Simon delegation, and tha sec

of Clatsop, favored aeatlng General Geo.

on both sides, snd Anally the convention
called for a statement from General Wll

Mr. Williams reluctantly consented,
and, In a brief speech, gave his views.
He said both sides were wrong: that
both had used money at the Drtmartea,
and that a great majority of the respect
able cltltens were crowded away from
the polls by hirelings and prevented from
voting at the primaries. He cald tht
most satisfactory solution would be to
give each side a one-half representation.'
A vote was taken by ballot by '.he dele
gates from nil counties expt Multno
mah on the adoption of the report of
the committee on credentials. The ote
rrulted thlrty-aeven to twenty-nine In
favor of Mr. Taylor's minority report,
giving each side a one-half representa
tion. The convention then adjourned un
til 8 p. m.
When the convention reassembled, the
Multnomah county delegates were allow
ed to cast twenty-three votia each, ex
clusive of the votes of Williams and
Hlrsch, and nominations for congress
man were then declared In order. Brown,
of Morrow, placed W. R. Ellis In noml

K U Smith, of Wai'O, then placed In

many delegates for a declaration ogulnst

majority on the offk'l U returns from

day, when the council canvasses the re

sides, on account of all -d Irregularities.
