Pracht, of Ashland, was Introduced to
glvo his confcsl ion of faith, Ho said
there wore three grave crimes ho
had never committed. Ho had never
voted n Democratic ticket, ho had
never flirted with iho Populists, and
ho had never bolted a convention. Ills
platform was for protection, recip
rocity, a very mild kind Of a "sound
dollar," and McKlnloy. The latter
sentiment brought a round of ap
plause. Editor Snyder, of MoMlnnvllle, now
was called out and sang in a fino voice
"Nntlvo Land," waving a small
American flag In his hands. "Tho
Pride of tho Veterans, tho Joy of the
World" got a good round of applause.

Wm. Waldo, of Marlon, placed tho
name of Tllmon Ford before the cou
ventlon. He said he was a native son
of Oregon who hud labored with his
own hands to build up tho country,
no was a lawyer second to none, who
by his industry had acquired a for-
'tune that was large enough for any
man. He was true to his friends and
Just to his enemies. His name was
received with great applause.

Ho was a man In ovcry way sultablo
for the place. Ho wus Identified with
tho material interests of Oregon, an
able advocato and wise counselor.
He had few equals on tho stump and
no superiors. 116 was an advocate oj
the Monroe doctrine, of protection to
the manufacturer und producer, pro
tection to tho eggs, butter, cheese

It. A. Booth, of' Josephine, made
really tho best nominating speech of
the day In behalf tof 11. B. Miller.
Ho congratulated (lie convention on
the Hat of names placed before it to
choose from as well as tho zeal and
fervor of tho delegates tu advocacy of
thoir candidates. This election would
restore tho party to power. Altnough
Isolated In llttlo Josephine, they
had a man whoso In it Hire years had
been spent in Oregon, a man of un
conquerable will, Inflexible purpose
heroic devotion to the party and Its
principles. Ho was hot a lawyer or a
politician but a man who employed
more laborers than any one man in
Oregon. His life labors had been
oxpended to market ,tho natural re
sources and products of Oregon. Ho
had Invested his wealth In Oregon.
His speech was received with cheers.
E. E. McKlnney, of Marlon, now
seconded tho nomination of Ford in
a set speech rich In many choice ex
pressions and excellent' phrases,- that
were at times interrupted with ap
plause. Mr. Ford was bo well known
ho required no eulogy. He had served
nccoptably threo times ns a legislator
and tho public measures ho had
enacted wcro tho most enduring mon
uments of Ills fame. This was an oc
casion of unusal Importance to tho
party and It must act wisely. The
eyes of the nation were upon Oregon.
Monday, Jtiuo'l, Oregon would sUirt

rest of tho nation would follow and

so Impatient to get a chance to vote
ns this year. Our dU tress was not
iuovltablo but tho result of igporanco
and perversion. Mr. Ford was a man
who had Ideas and convictions with
tho courage-und Indopcndoucetocarry
them Into effect. He was a self-mado
man who had begun nt tho foot of the
ladder. Mr. McKlnney had really tho
most thoughtful nominating speech
or the day but slipped a cog in his
delivery Ho wus repeatedly ap
plauded for his scntlmonts.
B. F. Mulkey now put In nomina
tion "our most distinguished citizen

Tho committeo tried to frame an

There was n Unanimity of senti
ment that tho bills should be drawn to
