ALL WAS HARMONY The List of Delegates Is a Splendid Selection of Some of the Party's Best Material. The Republican Citizen of Astoria got together test night In the court house and talked over the altuV-tm. Incidental ly tlhey held a kive fcat and did a whole lot of solid business.' ' Everybody wvaa there, t'.iat Is to say, every Republican who could get there, and as Astoria has more Republicans to day than the ever had before, toe hall was filled. The meeting was the result of the crII signed by the presidents of all the Republican Clubs for the purpose if considering llho nomination of deU gates to be voted for by the. party today. All the organisations were Well represented, and most of the prominent business men of the city were present. Mr. John Halvn was unanimously elected oh&trman of the meeting, and he lost no time In getting down to business. The Republican party of Astoria, he said, condtltuted ebout ifbur-fllTtihs of tine cltl sens, and their property certainly exceed ed four-dftlna of the total valuation. Thla being tlhe case lie was anxious to know wOvy the Republicans', banded solldCy to gether, and working for the ultimate good of the city, iweren't ttoree-flftha more of a Cltlxena' aarty Bhan any lltttle clique of Derri(x;ratlCJttl ciaitter4ng noli- selves y jiuut name.. As nobody attempt ed to salve this simple arithmetical prob lem, tlhe. ctialnomn went on to' remark that after taking four-fifths from flve flfths,' wlhat was left wasn't worth the trouble of counting anyhow,9a sentiment of whTcflie .meeting prseeMed tb show ks hearty approval by several rounds of applause.

The residents of the three wards were then segregated to enable them to make a vflioilce of their own candidates, and the deliberations dMnt tost longer than hUlf an hour. A large number of gentle men were nominated tn all tlhe wards, but owing to the excellent metlrod em ployed U took a very tlhort time to arrive at the result. The following delegates were selected to compose tlhe ticket to be voted on today: e FIRST WARD. WILLIAM H. HOBSON. W. CLINTON. H. B. . PBRG-USOX. , HARRY WHDRITY.. A. C. PISHE3R. ALBERT DUNBAR. P.

Judse Gray, immediately after the an nouncement of tlhe result, moved that every ReputCictain present ratify tlhe nom inations by rising to his feet. Hon. C. -W. Fulton, in seconding the motion, said: "I would like to add to this resolution tlhe injunction that every Republican present get out and work for tlhe election of these delegates who have been nominated here tonight ' and eh3 for tihefnen wfhom jhey will noximate for city offices next mont&v . This Is a time for Republicans to hand together tl e glad. We have every hlng .to encouniga us, and nothing to discourage u.

(Loud applause.) "I want to see the Republicans of As- torUi and Clatsop county get together.

Clatsop ts beyond all question a Republican county . Astoria Is an ove-rwUneX-nlngly Republican city. Thtrt Is no reason why every office tlhat exists here fihoulld not be filled by .Republicans. And iwliry not? If our party principles are wor.ia fltvtlns lor, are wortlta upholding, tihen tihone principles re Wortih puttJig into practical effect. Taere we people who pretend to hoM otp their bands against party politics in dtiy government. Those peop.e have a wrong conception ot 'tlhtngs. Pure party politics, urged on and camrted to the .front by men iwlth a fired and determined policy of honest govern ment, Is something tlhat this city and every city staaids in need of today. The Dime toaa come iwhen we ahoimd Biwaken to the knowledge that our combined strengtlh can canry us to piny victory. 'W have a desire to 'win.

We are going to do It, too. We are grtng to ratify the nominations of the convention, no matter who gets there. Let our main thought he to allow Republican fem to gdt th'are, and let our representatives be ftt aird worthy to bear Wie tiamner to victory. We are going to do this at bhe coming election, and we are going to give Astoria the best gov ernment she ever had." (Cheers.) The motion wua curried .by .acclamation without a dissenting voice, and the meet ing then adjourned. n Which Started the Ball to Roll ing Yesterday. S. L. Boyle & Co.

Kentucky is now a Republican elate. The people wanted a change and .Dhey took it, the Republicans being aided by tlhe iPopullsts and the A. P. A. No Democrat could have carried Kentucky at this election, not even Carlisle.' Colonel W. O. Bradley, iwho yesterday Carried Kentucky for the Republicans in tlhe gubernatorial election, will bo the choice of h'is state for the presidency, isind his friends claim thuit he will have tlhe Support ot 'tlhe Southern Republicans, It at significant that the friends of Gov. eraor Morton, as well as the political ohaoaplotis of Governor McKlnley, have a teen In constant correspondence with 'the lrterads of, Colonel Bradley, and have urged them to push his claims tor the second place on the ticket.

The friends of Governor Morton are urging thie Bradley people to support a New York man on tlhe ground that the geographical posldlons of New York and Kentucky would render Governor Mor ton's nomination for president almost de cisively In favor of Bradley's nomination for vice-president. On the other hand the McKlnley men aire arguing that McKlnley and Bradley would make the strongest ticket that could be put up because ot the personal mugncitUm of the men and the prestige (hey enjoy of having won many gallant victories.

Governor Aitge'.d Spettiks His Mind on the Result. Springfield, 111., Nov. 6.-II is ths belief of Governor Altgcld that tihe great Re publican landslide of yesterday was brought about dhlefly by the national ad. ministration and gold bug twins' of ths Democratic . party in Wall street.
