" OPEN-HANDED" BLACKMAN.
An Instance in Which He Exhibited Hi
The following iuelileiit, which la no cam

illtiKtrutec certain charauturici of a man who
now fairly achon to represent the people of
three comities In tlicvtate lojiMiiture:
Two years ago next mouth a well-known
citizen of this county, of unuuetlihHblc In
tegrity, noting the distress and damage caused
Jy the cyclone, related the circumstance to a
merchant of llciipncr and mihkiMciI a sub
scription for the relief of the sullerers. The
merchant thereupon drew up a lu'sding. to
which they both subscribed, and the tlrst kcii
tleman began firciiliitiiiK the paper. When be
bad obtained about cinht subscriber! to it lie
presented it to Henry lllaekman and requested
bis signature. Mr. Hlaeltniim asked by whose
authority the paper was circulated, and was
answered by the person presenting it that be
did it on his own responsibility because the
money was needed by the suirerers. In a way
Unit carried with it the iuriiiuaiion that lie
doubted the gentleman's probity, blackmail
asked bow t be subscribers were to know' that
(lie money was proerly handled, lie wus an
swered that it w ould be distributed by a com
mittee appointed at Lexington or Heppner, as
the subscribers desired, blackmail lllcii akeJ
by the paper was not brought to him llrst,
and refused to sign it. The gentleman then
passed the paper around town, and soon had
nearly :ino subscribed. A he was preparing
to start for Lexington, Blackmail called him
into bis store and desired to see tile list ugain,
and after carefully reading the names sub
scribed, aked if there was am' objection to his
placing his name at the head of the list, in
view of the previous convcrsaliou that itues
tion brought an emphatic refusal, Thereupon
Mr. Blackmail squeezed his name In between
the first and second on the list as contributing
10 In merchandise!
The gentleman afterward related the circum
stance to a prominent business man of Hepp
ner, when the latter smiled and said, 'When
we want to raise money by subscription we
always go to lllaekman first, and lie usually
writes a good sura opposite bis name for the
honor of being at the head."
Tills Incident was related by a gentleman of
honor and high standing in the county, who
gave full permission to use his name as au
thority for It.
And Ulackman is the man who now talks so
sweetly and blandly to voters In the bone of
wheedling theui into teudiug him to the legis

The following unsolicited letter, re

Dp.ar Pir: I ice that the democrats of your

here. I have known him from childhood. He
is a man of honor and high standing here, as
every mau in this county will attest, regardless
of party. With such a man as i. W. Mattock

How The Republican Convention
BOSS SWINBURNE AND HIS CANC
A Square Republican Describes the Dis
For the Hi-duct.
As much as I dislike to take any pub
lic part in political wrangles, I am
prompted, upon the repeated solicita
tions of republicans who were not pres
ent at the county convention, to write a
plain statement of facts concerning the
proxy that was voted out of the conven
tion and of which much has been said.
A proper explanation of this matter must
necessarily involve the proposition that
has already been made, privately and
through the columns of the IU'Dokt, that
the convention was conducted in the in
terest of a ring and was not a fair rep
resentation of a majority of the repub
licans of Morrow county. I hope, how
ever, in making these statements to
adhere strictly to facts and inferences
that are straight and conclusive, and to
avoid anything savoring of personal
the pkoxv nrsiNEss
Was like this: On the day of the con
vention and after it had adjourned pre
paratory to permanent organization, it
first canio to my knowledge that the
Well Spring delegate, Wallace Smead,
being unable to attend and being afraid
to trust his proxy in the hands of his
colleague, D. K. Jay tie, telegraphed it
from Castle Rock to Dr. Vaughn, of this
place, who was known to bo opposed to
the renomination of Howard for sheriff
and C. L. Andrews for clerk. Now, I
had been told that Well Spring precinct
was almost unanimously in favor of those
gentlemen for sheiilf and clerk, and im
mediately determined to stand otf this
telegraphic proxy, which certainly had
the appearance of unfairness, by asking
Mr. Edgar S. Barnes, of Castle Rock
precinct (and the only republican in the
precinct), to telegraph mo his proxy.
This he did, and in half an hour 1 had a
straight, Bipiare, valid proxy from Mr.
Barnes, authorizing me to cast a vote for
him in the convention. This all occurred
after the committee on credentials had
prepared their report, and consequently
was not included in it. At 1 o'clock the
convention was called to order by Chair
man Scott, and forthwith the committee
on credentials submitted their report. A
motion to adopt was made, whereupon 1
presented my authority for casting the
Castle Rock vote, and asked that it be
added to the repott as an amendment.
Mil. FKI.I. JIMI'KI) VP
And stated that as there was no primary
held in Castlo Hock precinct he didn't
think the vote was a fair one and was
opposed to admitting it (and made other
statements concerning it, which will be
referred to later). Mr. Ellis took the
floor and sanctioned what Mr. Fell had
said. This naturally btirred up a feeling
that was hard to control, and a little dis
cussion followed. The ground taken in
support of the amendment was as fol
lows: First In the published appor
tionment of delcgatoD to the county con
vention llio precinct of Castle Rock is
said to he entitled to one delegate at
large. Second 15. S. Barnes, being the
only republican in the precinct, was pos
itively the only one authorized to act as
that delegate. Third The matter of
holding a primary in this case would
have been simply impossible, and those
who presented such argument evidently
knew that it amounted to nothing but
cheap talk. Fourth If Mr. Barnes was
the proper and authorized delegate fiom
Castle Rock ho had the same right to
telegraph his proxy to whom ho pleased
that Mr. Smead had to telegraph his
proxy to Dr. Vaughn. After this talk
the motion on the amendment was put
and lost. A motion was then oll'cred to
the eth'ct tliut for the same reason that
the Castle Rock proxy had been rejected,
the Well Spring proxy by telegraph to
Dr. Vaughn he also rejected. This motion
was lost by exactly the same vote that
the other was.
Till! DIVIDING USE.
Having explained what action was
taken in the proxy business, it is neces
sary to consider incidents to arrive at
the motives that prompted such action.
It is well known that the dividing line
between the two parts or sides taken in
the republican primaries and conven
tion was simply the question of renomi
nation of Howard and Andrews as
against some one else. I say as against
"some one else," as the point seemed
to he more to beat these men than to
place any particular persons in their
place. Now. I shall take the position
that there did exist a ring or combina
tion fonneil mostly in the interest of one
petsoti, namely, Dr. Swinburne. Some
one says, ".Mister, yon are going too far ;
this is preposterous," etc., etc. Let's
see. I was at the Heppner primary and
also at the convention. I had talks ut
dilTorent times with republicans from
various parts of the county, and, from
what I have been able to learn, about the
only person that wanted to beat Howard
for slierilf bait was the said Dr. Swin
burne. All others who were opposed to
him offered no excuse except the "third
term." It has been publicly asserted
that this individual wanted to "knock
Howard out" because he (Howard) re
fused to fix a jury for him in some case
he was interested in before the court.
Whether this is true or not, the circum
stances go to prove that something of
that nature did exist. In conversation
with Mr. Kliis previous to the meeting
of the convention lie told me that while
Mr. Arthur Andrews was his choice for
sheriff, that he was making
"no fight against Howard;"
That Howard had made a good sheriff,
etc., etc. Mr. Fell also stated to me
that K. S. Cox, of Hardman, was his
first choice for sheriff, but that Mr.
Howard was bis second; that he had
nothing to say against Howard; that
he had made a good slierilf, and if Cox
couldn't get it, he would like to see
Howard re-nominated, etc. Presuming
the statements from these gentlemen to
be their true sentiment, very strong op
position was not looked for against
Howard from them.
Now let's go back to the Heppner
primary. The vote for chairman showed
a majority of four or five in favor of
Howard and Andrews. As soon ns the
primary was permanently organized Mr.
Ellis moved that the voting be allowed
to remain open an hour, in order to
allow all to vote. This was carried, and
the minority immediately dispatched
messengers to call in every man that
could bo found who would cast a vote
for the list of delegates they had pre
pared. There would have been nothing
particularly wrong about this, provided
they had only called in proper voters,
but they gathered in democrats, illegal
voters, etc., etc., until, when the vote
was counted, they had more than half
the representation in the convention on
their side, put there by four or five
votes that were not proper votes to be
cast in a republican convention. There
fore we say it was a minority vote of legal
republican voters that gave Heppner
precinct a majority in the county con
vention, and this thing was
WOKKBO BY SWIXnUKNB AM) II1S AIDKH.
So far so good. We are creditably in
formed that Eight Mile precinct was
worked by a process of voting by accla
mation that defeated the ends of justice
and brought an unfair representation
from Unit place. But tho Heppner del
egation was sufficient to give tho ling
a majority in the convention, and we
have seen how that was obtained.
Let's now go to the convention and
examine a little more into the matter
there. It was rather amusing as well as
black on its face to see Uncle Tommy
Scott after he had been elected tem
porary chairman by acclamation, on
motion of Mr. Ellis, and was ready to
appoint tho various committees. Mr.
Fell moved that a committee of five be
appointed on credentials. Uncle Tommy
deliberately drew from his vest pocket
the list of committees that had been
fixed for him and read off the names.
Mr. Ellis was next to call for a commit
tee of live on order of business. The
same performance was repeated, as was
also done on the motion of Mr. Arm
strong for a committee on permanent
organization. Now how did Mr. Scott
know lirst, that ho would be tempo
rary chairman ; second, that there would
he just three committees called for;
and third, that these committees would
consist of just five each? Don't it look
a little odd, and don't it savor a little of
a ring? Now again to that odious proxy.
We claim that
MHSSItS. FEI.I, AND EM.1S WOHKKI) HARD,
And did things in order to carry their
point in that convention that they would
not have done if there was no other
motive than, as they stated to mo, a
simple preference for the nominee for
sheriff. Thera must have been some
thing back. To carry his point, Mr.
Fell stated that be had been offered the
Castle Rock proxy, and as ho did not
consider it a fair vote he did not accept
it. I have been creditably informed
that he wrote to Mr. Barnes for the
proxy ; but as Mr. B. was not acquainted
with Mr. Fell, be simply did not reply.
Another thing stated in the convention
by Mr. Fell was that there was a mes
sage at the depot authorizing anyone
that chose to cast the Castle Rock vote
for Mr. Barnes. I was told a day or two
later, by one who ought to know, that
such a message Imd not been received
there, I cannot accuso Mr, Fell of de
liberate falsehood, as I have always
helil him in higher esteem; but I do
think that his connection with the little
combination was such as to render him
over-zealous, and he simply strained a
point in trying to serve his backers
WAS IT ON THE SllAKK?
In voting upon this proxy a promi
nent member of the convention arose to
vote in the affirmative, but before the
nays could bo culled one of the leaders
moved to reconsider, as he noticed that
one man voted yea whom ho was sure
would have voted the other way if he
had understood the motion. This was
put a second time, and it went all right.
I am told by one who said ho saw, that
one of our prominent citizens, a delegate
unfortunately on the ring side, got up to
vote yea on the same question, when
one of the leaders pulled him down by
tho coat tail. Now is there anything iii
this to indicate that a combination had
been formed to "knock out Howuid and
Andrews, and did they succeed, and
are the ones chosen to take their places
the choice of the people or of the ring?
And if they are elected, should we ex
pect them to Berve us as faithfully as
the present incumbents, or do we think
they would return the favor to those
who put them there in the place of
these men whom they could not use?
Our esteemed citizen" M r. J. S. Voting,
of Eight Mile, was offered the assessor
ship by tho combination and at the
sarno timo was incidentally informed
that "they" wanted to "knock Howard
and Andrews." Mr. Young holdy stated
that he was very well satislied with
those men and would nutopppose them.
Whereupon Mr. Young was immedi
ately dropped not because he was an
unlit man nor in every way qualified for
tho position, but just because be would
not "stand in." In conclusion, I shall
explain as best I can
HOW THIS MATTER AI'PEAHS
To me, and ask for this communication
a sober consideration only. It seems
that Dr. Swinburne being about the
only man in the county that had de
clared ho would knock Howard out (for
reasons already stated), and this being
the principal point at issue between the
two factions, the said Dr. 8. must neces
sarily be the very head of the combina
tion formed to carry the county conven
tion. Mr. Ellis having no special in
terest in defeating Mr. Howard, as he
had previously explained to me, wan
willing to, and I may add did, sacrifice
to some extent his own enviable reputa
tion by opposing the admission in the
convention of a proxy that he knew to
he a valid and honorable vote, simply
because it fell into the hands of one
whom he believed would support Mr.
Howard for sheriff. Why did he do this?
Was it not because Dr. H. was a good
personal friend of his, and he wanted to
do what be could to help him carry his
point? Mr. Fell told the writer that
Mr. Howard was his second choice for
sheriff, and yet he also opposes the vote
because it fell into tho hands of a
Howard delegate, and even went so far
as to make misstatement in the con
vention to carry bis point. If he did
not do this to help Dr. H. floor Howard,
what did he do it for? Again, the Smead
proxy came to Dr. Vaughn, an A 1 man,
by the way, but a particular personal
friend of Dr. S., and who willingly did
what ho could for him in return for
favors granted. If this was not planned,
how did it happen that way? It seems
to me that this will show how the com
bination or ring started, and the matter
could be traced clear through the ma
jority of the convention, which was con
ducted IN THE INTEREST OP J)R. SWlNIlt'RNE,
Though I believe that a portion of this
majority did not realize that they were
working in the interest of any one rnan
or set of men. I ventnro the assertion
that every man in tho convention be
lieved that tho Castle Rock proxy
should have been admitted. I have
talked with several that voted against it,
and have yet to find the first man to say
that.it was fair to reject it. Then why
did the majority vote nay? Jnst be
cause they went there with" the distinct
understanding that they were to oppose
the Howard and Andrews side, regard
less of right or wrong. In other words
they went to the convention as dele
gates of the Swinburne ring, and they
did their duty well. There is good rea
son to believe (as before stated) that the
majority in the convention represented
the minority of the republicans in Mor
row county, nnd that the candidates
placed in nomination there if elected
will be under obligations to Dr. Swin
burne and his associates.
With all kindly feeling personally to
ward every man in or connected with
tho republican convention, and wishing
tho party Bticcess in all mutters of a po
litical nature and a speedy reform in all
affairs of local interest,
I am, respectfully,
C. M. Mai.i.ory.

After the Lord Mayor had abode In the city

as he juurueyed a deep fear fell upon'him, so
much so that he smote his breastand cried out,
