Republican Leader Make Speeches.
Max Pracfit Registered.
Hon. Max Pracht, special agent of the
U. S. General Land Office temporarily
stationed at Oregon City, arrived iff
Ashland Saturday to register and spent
Sunday at Peachblow Paradise orchard.
Mr. Pracht says he will be in Ashland .
on election day “to vote the entire re
publican ticket except one. Being a
stalwart I never vote for a democrat but ,
in this instance I cannot vote for one ■
man on this ticket.” Mr. Pracht would
not give the name of the single republi
can on the ticket whom he took offence
at, for publication. However, it is no ,
doubt Hon. Geo. W. Dunn, and Mr.
Pracht’s grievance can easily be guessed i
at. Mr. Dunn was the successful nomi
nee of the republican legislative ticket ;
in 1894 and was expected to vote for the.
re-election of United States Senator J.
N. Dolph. To the surprise of the gold
standard republicans he joined the i
“immortal thirty” who bolted Dolph
and firmly refused to vote with the re
publican majority. The bolters repre
sented the free silver republican element ,
which was lead by Secretary of State H
R. Kincaid. As Mr. Dolph only lacked
one vote of being re-elected U. 8. Sena
tor, Representative Dunn could have
supplied the same.
What aggravated the gold standard
republicans as much as Dunn’s refusal
to vote for Dolph was the resolutions i
and speeches of the Ashland Bimetalic :

The Dunham Damage Case. I
The third meeting of the republican
party of Jackson county this season took
place at Chautauqua tabernacle in Ash
land Monday evening. The first con
vention held at the opera house in this
city in April to elect delegatee to state
and congressional conventions and the
second convention to nominate a county
ticket held at Gold Hill, May 6th, were
stunning events in their way. The
“fluke” in April whereby ¡Senator Carter
and his friends lost control of the party
leadership, management and machinery
nfter being the recognized leader for
eight years, has re-arranged the entire
program, hence the events transpiring
are of special interest as disclosing the
trend and motive of the reorganizers and
their work of intrenching themselves in
political power and strengthening their
prestige for a future attack from the de
posed leader. While it is generally ac
cepted that Senator Carter’s control as
the head of the prevailing republican
dynasty was taken away from him in an
underhanded manner by marplots in
the republican party, the methods and
morals of which have been denounced
and characterized by the friends or
opponents of either faction in the strong
est forms of expression that the English
language affords, yet the facts of the de
position are inevitable and the plotters
are in control.
The situation in republican circles is
quite similar to that in the Kingdom of
Servia when one night the plotters and
schemers reached the bedroom of King
Alexander and Queen Draga, murder
ed them and threw their bodies out of
the window, and assassinated the king’B

The powers had a consultation and
while they roared at the methods em
ployed they agreed that the Karageorge-
vitch dynasty was in possession of “the

can ticket are settling down to the
evitable the best they know how.
