The Oregoiilan telln of the contest
iim follows: Vlctofyi'aiileafU rsa'eneH
of ilitensa' excitement and nilllil the
M ildest clamor from his frieiidH. It
was mi the iMh liallot aif t he evening
j ami tin 4 I of the session. At II
o'clock tlie opposition made a futile
at tempt to unite upon tin name of
II. W. Scott, of Portland. Mr. Scott
received tin- unanimous support of
the Multnomah delegation for two
ballots. On tlie third liallot, or tlie
1Mb of t lie veiling, when the minute
Iwi ml of the clock was pointed to
within three minutes of midnight,
Mr. Nottingham, of Multnomah,
arose as his naun- was called and
made t he first break from tlie Port
land lneinliers fi.r Mr. Fulton. He
was followed by Mr. l'auks, and
J t hen, after several ot her changes had
j been made, by Ilepri-selitat i ve Fisher
and Jones. Mr. Jones' vote, how"
ever, was not needed he was the 4;th
man. To Senator I'aly, of Iicntoti
County, the fortune of completing
the triumpth of the candidate of
Astoria fell. He was the 4."th, and
It took 4."i to elect.
When Mr. Nottingham abandoned
bin Multnomuh colleague Mr. Ful
ton had Xi vote. It had lieen ar
ranged that the Marlon delegation
would vote for Mr. Scott on the next
ballot, and If Mr Nottingham had
wen fit to abide by the winhen and
plans o his delegation, it in quite
probable that Multnomah County
would have lieen nuccessful in its
effort to elect a man from Portland.

man net In, and on him, therefore,

from the opposition to Mr. Fulton

Undeveloped Region of Eastern
Oregon Awaits Action of Portland-Wont
I Any buHlnesHtiiaii of Portland who-
will call upon President Lytleofthe
i Columbia Southern and H-ruse the re
ports he has received from hU engin
eers mid fxjM-rtH. will conclude that
the one great opportunity for I'ort
larid just now is to encourage the de
velopment of Central Oregon. Mr.
Lytic has facts ascertained through
extensive inquiry that will enlighten
anyone who has heretofore lieen ig
norant of tin subject.
In Central On gon, the ncren of ar
able land compared with the acres
that are cultivated, makes a ratio
startling, indeed. And it constitutes
an indictment against the foresight
of those who have !een entrusted
wit h the task of looking rait for the
interests of Oregon and its metrop
olis. Two thirds of the state wants the
central region to be penetrated by
a railroad, ami, if it is to Ik; ene
t rated, the work must have Its in
ception here in Portland. Here
must le the leadership, perhapn the
famishment of actual capital, that
in to build from the Columbia Uiver
south to Lakevlew, with lateral
running to either side east and west.
What Is Iielng done to further the
enterprise? Some good w'ork, yet
not ehouglfatrentfon Is paid toft, not
vigor enough to warrant the hoie
that time will not pans anil permit
other railroad plans to functuate
and eteal from Portland the com
mercial command of the Central Or
egon that belongs to this city
by every consideration. Do our peo
ple realize that just now surveys are
running hither and thither through
the great undeveloped, region, and
that those surveys have significance,
a significance that pertain to Port
land'n supremacy in its legltmate
territory? Do they realize that the
first line built through a region pos
sesses advantages .difficult to over
come? That capital Is always fright
ened when asked to assist in build
ing wherein another line ha pene
trated? These matters must lie kept before
tlie minds of our ieople, and the
Journal propose to do It In the con
viction that Portland faces a critical
situation that calls for prompt, rad
It I reported that an addition to
the small colony of Italian at New
rine Creek I expected to arrive soon.
They will probably follow the same
business (gardening) a those who
came last year. It 1 understood
that a hard fight Is being made
against them down there for several
reasons, Fi rst : They 11 ve very cheap,
sH'iid very little money, and conse
quently sell vegetable cheaper
than the farmers can, who have
lecn In that business and made their
home there for years. Thus the
farmers are In-lng driven out of the
vegetable and fruit business by the
Influx of foreigners, w ho are not sat
isfied to compete at the going prices,
but want to drive legitimate people
out of the business by cutting prices.
Another objection to them i that
they have lieen distributing anar
chistic documents around the neigh
borhood, and the people are about
to raise up enmasse and ask them
j to move on.
