THE FIRST HOWL.
A Slap at the Country Element By the
A well-informed Salem man In
Portland yesterday made tho follow
"Tho Republican convention of
Marlon county was a farce, so far as
representing tho reputable element of
tho party Is concerned. It was due
largely to delegates selected In refer
ence to Ford for congress. Without
looking at tho tax-roll, and merely
upon knowlcdgo of -the conservative
business men, less than one-half the
Salem delegates wore taxpayers; tho
rest non-tnxpaycra. Tho silver clement
predominated In tho convention, con
sequcntly no commlttco was np
polutcd on resolutions. Tho repre
sentative ticket Is conceded a freo
sllvcroue, though .1. N. Smith and
E. W. Chapman will likely go no
further than to support Mitchell.
There may bo an Independent move
