Davidson T. Y. McClclIan, I. M.
Wagner, B. T. Oeorgo.Frank SImcral.

Geo. Weeks, S. It. Burford, Clina
Miller, Jas. B. Dawson.
Resolutions John P. Robertson,
J. W. Jory, D. E. Swank, J. M. Poguo,
T. J. McClcary.
On the suggestion of I). E. Swank,
T. J. McCleary was Invited to address
the convention while the commltteco
were doing their work. Tho gentle
man appeared and spoke In a pleasing
voice. IIo spoke for tho common peo
ple and pointed to the portrait of
Abraham Lincoln, as did tho Repub
lican speakers tho day before, as tho
immortal representative of his party's
Ideals. IIo claimed that only one
man In congress today truly rep
resents tho masses, while tho lawyers
and bankers had the rest, and that
their Interests were Identical and
who legislated only In behalf of tho
money power1 ; IIo condemned tho
Democrats and Republicans alike, and
6tatcd that the Populist party was an
organized protest against the Iniquit
ous policy of tho parties. He said tho
bankers were tho lice upon your
backs, tho llcas upon tho dog Anni
hilate tho present system and tho
fleas will bo out of a job. He ridiculed
G rover Cleveland and the single gold
standard as well as tho free silver
men. There Isn't a Republican upon
tho face of God's groan earth who
knows what money Is. Only Popu
lists know this precious stuff, Gold
jand silver is not money. It exists
, only in the imagination. The law
alouo makes money. After closing
i his remarks General Weaver of Iowa,
, who had just arrived, was introduced.
j The general entered upon a felicitous
and polished speech. He pleased his
j hearers immensely, and brought out
cheer after cheer. IIo said history
j was simply repeating itself. Tho
, older men in tho house had seen old
I party lines broken up, and that
, it was coming again in tho yery near
' future. After tno general closed with
' a great cheer, Representative Jeffries,
1 of Juckson, was introduced, and spoke
' in his usual bright strain. Upon

Tho result of the Marlon county
convention was a complete vindica
tion or the rlghts'of the people to
trample upon ring rule and machine
politics. Tho genulno reform woik of
tho last legislature has been endorsed
and tho pcoplo havo ordered a for
ward movement on tho sanio lines.
Machine politics dictated from
Portlnnd has rccolved another death
blow In Marlon, the banner Republi
can county of Oregon. Tho Republi
can .convention by tho tlukot It has
nominated has declared that It stands
with tho pcoplo of tho state at large
and that tho will of tho people shall
bo respected above that of bosses.
Tho pcoplo have vindicated tholr
right to revolt against maohlno poli
ticians who keep no pledges or plat
forms, but only regard politics ns a
gamo of spoils. The rights of tho
common pcoplo to be represented in
tho councils of party havo been as
serted nnd another victory has been
won in tho name of Republicanism for
a government of, for and by tho peo
ple. The pcoplo will ratify their work
begun Tuesday at tho polls in no half
hearted muiincr. It was a grand
round-up of Republicans from princi
ple and not for revenue. Now
blood Is infused m tho veins of tho
grand old party of protection and
patriotism, and It will go forward to
now victories nnd now achievements
for tho well being and prosperity of
tho American people.
The Republican county ticket
printed clsowhoro will wo bcllovorc
colvo tho hearty Htipport of a majority
of tho pcoplo of Marlon county and bo
elected by the largest average majori
ties ever given any sot of men nomi
nated for olllce ln.thlB county.
Tho ticket la well distributed
geographically, sections of tho county
rccolvlug recognition that nuvcr had
any before. Mchamn, Brooks, Silver
ton and Scott's Mllls, get places on
tho ticket. Thcso Sections havo not
had recognition in many years. Thu
men who nro renominated for county
olllccs, stand well with tho people.
The new names put on tho ticket
will add a great deal of strength to
tho ticket, which Is not always tho
case. Tho legislative ticket will bo
found very close to tho hearts of tho
masses. Tlioy will run "like scared
wolves" nnd not bo very scared either,
and In place of ttlirro men who will
defend tho rights of ,tlio common
pcoplo there will be live men there.
Tho county and legislative ticket
are both strong. Thoy will work In
perfect harmony. Tho tlckot will
bear tho closest scrutiny. It will not
bo ucccftsary to carry on a costly
campaign to elect this tlckot. It Is u
tlckot that will elect Itself. It Is a
pcoplo's ticket, by tho pcoplo and for
tho plooplo, and tho pcoplo will stand
by tho ticket they havo helped tho
Republicans to put up.
