Thomas G. Green and others of the
national Democratic party havo tiled
a protest before the secretary of state
late Saturday night against placing
the names of N. L. Butler, Harry
Watkins, N. L. Olmstcad and E.
Ilofer on the olllclal ballot as Demo
cratic, electors.
At the Democratic convention held
In .Portland April 9, 1890, E. Kill
feather, J. M. Carroll, W. W. Oglesby
aud J, J. Whitney were nominated as
Democratic presidential electors.
None of these, except Oglesby, who
afterward withdrew, ever qualified by
tiling their names and acceptance with
the secretary of state; neither wero
the names filed by the chairman and
secretary of the Democratic conven
tion. F. A. E. Starr and George
C. Stout, assuming to renresfitir, n
committee of the Democrats, have
endeavored to file the name of N. L.
Butler, E. Ilofer and Harry Watkins
aud M. L. Olmstad In place of Kill
leather, Carroll and Whitney, who
failed to accept, and Oglesby, who
The protestauts tirst claim that
Starr and Stout have no authority to
ad, but that they first should have
been empoweied by D'Arcy and No-'
land, chairman and secretary of the
Democratic convention, and were not
so authorized Jt Is als claimed that
there could be no substitution' until
the nominations and acceptance wero
first Hied.
If the petitioners make the protest
stick, -Bryan will have' no electoral
ticket at all in this state, as the'.timo
for filing an individual nomination
(30 days prior to election) has passed.
The full text of the protest Is as
'To the secretary of state: As coun
sel for and In behalf of -Thomas G.
Green, Robert CatHn and others, who
as national Democrats, united in tho
petition duly filed with you, nominat
ing for presidential electors and as

Frank A. Seufert,Curtis J. Trenchard
and Alexander M. Holmes, and as
counsel for and In behalf of the polit
ical organization known as the
national Democratic party of tho
state of Oregon In behalf of which
party tho foregoing petition referred
to Is filed, I object and protest against
any certification by you to any of the
county clerks of the state of Oregon
the following-named persons as Demo
cratic nominees for the oillce of presi
dential elector tewlt: M. L. Olm
stcad and E. Ilofer, certificates for
the pretended nomination of whom
as Democrats was filed with you by F.
A. E. Starr and George C. Stout,
purporting to sign said nomination,
respectively, as chairman and secre
tary of the Democratic state central
committee; N. L. Butler and Harry
Watkins, certificates for the pre

crats for the office of presidential
electors was signed by F. A. E. Starr
and George C. Stout, Durportlng to be
respectively signed as chairman and
secretary of the Democratic state cen
tral committee; and I do protest and
object against your certification of
the said parties above named, or
either of them, as tjie nominees of the
Democratic party for presidential
electors, save and except the certifica

party in convention (neither Starr nor
Stout were authorized' to certify to
this fact, because they vyere not

plated by section 31 of tho act.) had
filed their certificate. of nomination or
acceptance. This is true, unless pos
sibly as to Oglesby; but, If true, tho
very truth of the fact prevented their
acting, because no nomination had
been made by the convention, and,
without a convention' 'nomination
namely, nomination and acceptance
no commltte of the convention
could "act.
"Furthermore, at thte-partlcular
tlmo the Oglesby withdrawal had not
been made, and, therefore, even as to
Oglesby, there was no .power to act,
because, untill the withdrawal, no
committee can act; In oJ,her words,

As a result, therefore, wlien Starr un

for him to act upon. -
"It Allows alSo that mo one who

The gold standard Democrats havo
taken snap judgment to knock out
the Bryan electors In Oregon. When
they thought It was-too late (less than
thirty days) to get up a petition for
the regular Democratic- electors, they
come In with 11 protest against tho
Bryan electors appearing on the
ticket as Democrats at all.
It Is only 29 days from.twlay, and as
the secretary of state was not sup
posed to get mail on Sunday the pro
test really came a day too late for fair
consideration, or for any hearing on
the merits of the matter, or for the
other side to make any showing
On receipt of the above protest
from the national (gold standard)
Democrats, Secretary Klncald wired
Chairman Starr, Attorney General
Idleman and Zera Snow to appear and
present arguments on the merits of
the mutter.
State Chairman Starr nnd Idleman
came up from Portland on the over
land Sunday night. Hon. Win. II.
Holmes and Hon. P. II. D'Arcy, of
this city were summoned and they re-

takes the technical position that as
the Democratic electors never ac
cepted there was no vacancy to fill, a
mere peccadillo, and yet the entire
basis of the gold Democratic conten
tion. Zera Snow, In a letter to the
secretary, says they are fortified by
Mr. Idleman's opinion to tho effect
that there were no vacancies, and
hence the Democratic state central
committee had no power or authority
to fill tho vacancy by naming the four
union Bryan electors as Democratic
electors. Attorney General Idleman
was not originally consulted by Secre
tary .Klncald. because he feared he
was hand In glove with the gold Dem
ocrats and so It now appears.
The goldbug managers this morn-
lug telegraphed tho secretary demand.

was finally agreed upon by the secre
tary of state and Attorney-General
Idleman as the complete remedy to
the objections of the gold standard
Democrats. So 250 names will have
to be enrolled at Salem before Tues
day evening of this week. The
petition has been prepared to meet all
the technical objections, and while It
Is not necessary as u matter of law,
the precaution is no doubt u wise one
and 250 signers will have to be pro

but now must be named a fourth
