John A. Jeffrey won out in the contest
for the nomination for the joint senator
ship between Marion and Linn counties.
Tile fight was a warm one while it lasted,
but when the vote was taken the minor
ity quietly acquiesced in the choice of
the majority. The Linn county delega
tion settled'the matter after the Marion
county people had failed to agree. The
fight was really one between the two op
posing factions of the democratic party
tn Marion cotintv. W. H. Holmes was
the candidate of one faction and J. A.
Jeffrey of the other It was decided that
the candidate should c>»me from Marion
county, and the delegates from Linn
agreed to stand by any man who might
be agreed upon by 12 of the 16 delegates
from M irion. But 12 men of one opinion
Could not be found, and at the last mo
ment the Linn county delegates stepped
in and cast 17 votes for Jeffrey. This
was a victory for P. H. D’Arcy, D. J. Fry
and John Gray, who were not delegates,
but who came to the state convention
working for Jeffrey’s nomination.
A report cornea from San Francisco
from wh it is considered quite a reli ible
source that there is to tie a radical change
in the train service of the Southern Pa
cific of this division
The change will give Redding three
trains daily, one of them being the
“local” train that was formerly run into
this city. According to the report as it
reaches Redding, the Southern Pacific
Company intends to put on a ’’flyer” be
tween San Francisco and Portland on
the first of June, when all the rumored
changes are to take place. The “flyer”
will cut down the time between the me
tropolises of Oregon and California to
The only stops that will be made by
this train as far north as Ashland will tie
at Sacramento, Marysville, Chico, Red
Bluff, Redding, Dunsmuir and Ashland.
The “flyer” will displace one of the ex
presses now in service.
A second express will run through,
making all the stops as now made. The
third train will run over the “west side”
by way of Woodland and Willows and
stop at Redding.

Stumbles in His Schemes
to Land Into the State Printer?—Sher
of the Honor of Being
It was for secretary of state that the
first opportunity came for taking a bal-
l"t. Thomas O’Day, of Multnomah,
nominated D. W. Sears, of Polk, saying
that Sears would run well with Cham
“We are not here to nominate one
man,” said O’Day, “but an entire ticket,
a ticket which shall be elected in June.”
William Smith, of Baker, seconded
Sears’ nomination, and a motion was
made to give Sears the»unanimous nomi
R. G. Smith, of Josephine, demanded
a point of order, and declared that it was
repugnant to cU*n»<»en*i.io principles to
close nominations before it was known
whether any others were to be nomina
ted. His point of order was sustained.
Smith, in a fiery, spread-eagle speech,
referred to the fact that he was a convert
from republicanism, and in a glowing
nomination address he placed the name
of E. A. Sherwin, of Jackson, for secre
tary ot state. He asked for the nomi
nation of Sherwin on behalf of southern
On behalf of Lane county, Lark Bil
yeu seconded Sherwin’s nomination.
K amath county and Yamhill also sec
onded Sherwin’s nomination
Welch, of Multnomah, wanted half an
hour recess to discuss nominees, as the
office was next in importance to that of
governor, but he was voted down.
There being no further nominations,
chairman Stillman declared that the
nominations were closed, and instructed
the counties to prepare their ballots, as
the vote would be taken by counties and
not individually. A roll call of counties
followed, which had this result:
There were 262 votes cast, 132 being
necessary to choice. Sears won the
nomination by 60 votes.
Sherwin, of Jackson, as soon as the
vote was announced, moved that the
nomination of Sears be made unanimous,
at which there was applause.
Mr. Sears responded to cries of “speech”
saying: “It cannnot be said now that
there was not a contest in this conven
Sears disti"guished himself by sitting
down without attempting a protracted
rep y. But he was hoarse.

........ ASHLAND, OREGON
Portia1 d Oregonian: The desire of
harles Nickell, of Jackson county, to be
nominated for state printer smashed the
democratic slate in two places yesterday,
when the delegates reconvened to finish
their work yesterday. In order t-• side
track J E. Godfrey, of Salem, who was
a warm favorite for the nomination,
Nickell set Lark Bilyeu out of the race
for supreme judge, and brought about the
nomii ation of B. F. Bonham, of Salem.
One Marion county man on the ticket,
he believed, would put the finishing
touches on Mr. Godfrey’s fate. But it
didn’t. The nomination of Judge Bon
ham set all kinds of machinery to work
ing, and it worked with a whlrtr. F A.
Sherwin, also of Jackson, had been slat
ed for secretary of state, and following
the same reasoning he applied to the
Marion com ty matter, Mr. Nickell lent
his support to Mr Sherwin’s opponent,
D. W. Sears, of Polk The Sherwin
people came back by pulling for Godfrey,
.and as a result Mr. Nickell was third man
in the race when, after a second ballot,
the nomii ation of Godfrey was made.
In other respects the ticket went through
as slated, as will be shown by the list of
nominees printed above. Sherwin and
Sears made a lively fight for the nomi
nation of secretary of state, but the Jack-
son county man was not favored by the
41 stanch democrats from Multnomah,

THE OREGONIAN ON DIRECT LEGISLATION.
The Oregonian in an able editorial on
the proposed constitutional-amendme t
to be voted on in June, sums up as fol
The referendum is an obstacle to too
mucli legislation; to surreptitious legis
lation; to legislation in particular inter
ests; to partisa machi e legislation, and
to boss rule. The dread of innovation,
received as a first impression whe • the
change to this system is proposed, will
pass away upon examination of it. It
has been found, to the confusion of,
radical leaders, that the measures they
most prized have been negatived by the
electorate. Of course, there would re
main a vast variety of legislative meas
ures which it would not be deemed
necessary to submit to a direct popular
vote. All plain and simple acts, or most
of them, short, direct and easily under
stood, would pass from the legislature
directly to the statute book; nut the
referendum would be ordered in all cases 1
where there was serious opposition or
doubt; that is to say, in those very cases
which ought to receive widest examina
tion and be subjected to most searching
discussion. Impo tant legislation would
thus be lifted above the schemes of in- (
terested perso's, above the dominion of
party or partisan leaders; legislative jobs
would be mi- imized and a check nearly
absolute would be put upon profligate
These are some of the advantages
The disadvantages are such, mainly, as
would be urged by those who habitually
seek benefits through the present legis
lative system, and who object to relin
quishment of existing opportunities.
The Oregonian believes that upon study
of the subject by the people this amend
ment will prevail; but it must be re
membered that in this, as in all similar
cases, a majority of the electors voting at
the particular election in which an
amendment is submitted, must be re
corded for it, in order to carry it.
