T9 THE DALLES
PROCEEDING WITH CAUTION.
Pursuant to call the populists met in
convention last Friday, Shade Richard-
son was called to the chair and Tom
Vanorsdul was made secretary, The
minutes of the meeting of the advisory
committee on fusion were read, which
allowed that they had decided to nomi
nate a ticket to be called the ‘‘citizeus’ ’’
ticket. The proposition 1 b to give the
populists on this ticket the offices of rep
resentative, slieriti and commissioner,
the democrats to have all the other nomi
nations. In case of election, all deputies
chosen are to be of the same political
faith. The democrats will consider the
ratification of this proposition in their
county convention to be held tomorrow.
At Friday’s convention the sentiment
was greatly divided with reference to
proceeding to nominate along the line
of this committee’s report. Mr. Braith-
wait reported that the democrats were
understood to be very desirous of keep
ing their party name at the head of the
ticket. Mose Johnson thought that the
priority of action of lhe populists eutitled
their name to as much consideration as
any other, yet they could not accept and
act on the report of the committee in
good faith until they knew the action of
tiie democratic party on the report. On
the advisory committee there were four
democrats for it and three against it,
w hich leaves them to report only a bare
majority, and they would not be likely
to adopt the report. “All we-can do,”
he said, “is to accept of it and adjourn,
or reject it and go ahead.” A. A. Wal
ker couldn’t quite comprehend Mr. John
son’s position. He didn’t know where
they would gain by waiting for the demo
crats. He wanted to go right ahead,
and no kick could arise, as they were
first and not last, and could elect their
ticket through and through if they should
hang together. W. G. Robbins favored
adjournment without nomination. John
son thought they might have to call an
other convention and fill a complete
ticket. lie didn’t want to be the tail to
any democratic kite, or join together un
less they could elect their own men, and
here made reference to the seat now
watmed in congress not beiDg properly
warmed, as our congressman was a cor
poration man. Vanorsdal said he fore
saw that they were going to split. “Are
we going into the democratic purty?” he
asked. “1 want to go ahead. I have been
a reformer in Yamhill county for the
last ten years, and can go over the coun
ty and pick out the reformers. It is
child’s play to go back on our propo
sition. We should go ahead or go downj”
Robbins moved to proceed on the report
of the committee, seconded by Walker,
who said “we have nothing to gain by
falling behind, and have a jterfect right
to go ahead and place our men in nomi
nation. The committee might have
named a later day for this convention,
but this they haven’t did. I want to
stand in for reform through and through.
If we don’t we will fizzle. We must
either take back-water or Bwini across,
and I say swim!” This was regarded as
a very good |>opiilist speech. Perkins
explained the position 01 the democrats
on the committee to be that they had bo
|x>wer to make arrangements, but were
only sent out to confer. Johnson also
■poke for the committee, and said
that they didn’t name a later day be
cause they hadn’t any power. “They had
been in convention, and you said this
was the day we were to meet. If we
name a ticket today our three men will
have to go on the ballot by |>etitiou, and
we wont have time to fill a ticket in a
second convention.” Johnson then
moved that a committee of seven lie ap
pointed to meet after aitiop of the demo
cratic convention, snd fill the ticket if it
became necessary to name a full ticket,
and that they proceed to put in three
men. There was no second, and Rob
bins asked Johnson to withdraw his mo
tion until vote waa taken on the motion
before the house. Johnson consented
and motion to accept the report was car
ried, Johnson voting against it. He said
this meant that they must go on the bal
lot by petition. He thonght it would lie
a traiia to call the ticket a citizen. ticket,
and asked if he would be in order to
move to adjourn. A motion then pre
vailed that when they adjourn it be to
meet on the 28tli of April at 10 o’clock.
The precinct» of North Newberg, South
Sheridan, Lafayette, and East and West
Dayton were found to be without repre
sentation It was moved by Johnson
that a committee of five be appointed on
