A GOLD STANDARD INJUNCTION.
A petition for a writ or Injunction
was llled with the cleric of the circuit
court late Tuesday afternoon by J. J.
Shaw, acting as one of the attorneys
for the petitioners who arc Thotnns
G. Green, Robert Catlln and Curtis
Trenchard. The surety on the bond,
in the sum of $500, Is Banker John II.
Albert, of Salem.
Circuit Judge II. II. Hewitt, of
Albany, heard the petition and Issued
the restraining order, returnable to
hi in at 0 a. tn. on the 10th Inst. This
was served on the secretary of state
at 4:40 p. in. by a deputy sheriff.
The complaint covers ten closely
typo-written pages, of which nine are
used in the statement which sets forth
highly colored -allegations similar to
those contained In the protest case
heard by Secretary Kincald, and the
prayer of the complaints attached
thereto Is as follews:
''Wherefore, your petitioners now
pray that an injunction may issue per
manently enjoining the defendant
herein as secretary of state from cer
tifying to any of the couny clerks of
the staU of Oregon the names of N.
L. Butler, E. Hofer, W. H. Spaugli
and Harry Watkins, and each of them
as nominees of the Democratic party
for the olllce of presidential elector
of the state and from certifying to
them as Democrats and that he like
wise be permanently enjoined from
certifylug that the said N. L. Butler
has been at all nominated or Is the
nominee for presidential elector, or Is
entitled to be placed upon the oillclal
ballot of the stale as such at the elec
tion about to be held for the olllce of
presidential elector and that an order
tosliow cause may Issue to the end that
complaint and petition be heard and
that such permanent injunction be
Issued, and that pending the hearing
thereof this complaint and peti
tion that a proper restraining order
may Issue preliminarily rcstalntng
the said secretary of state from ccrtl
fying either of the said parties as he
threatens to certify to them unless
such perllminary restalnlng order Is
issued, and unless said preliminary
restraining order Issued by said secre
tary of state will Immediately certify
said several parties to the county
clerks of the state as Democratic
nominees and thereby any permanent
injunction which might be Issued
hereon would be rendered nugatory;
and these plaintiffs and petitioners
pray for such other and further relief
as maybe meet and equitable "
The restraining order was is
sued by Judge Hewitt but
IT CAME TOO LATE.
The certllied copies of the oftlcial
ballot sent out by the secretary of
state to the county clerk of each
county on October 0 as the law re
quires were taken to the Salem post
ofllce at 11 a. 111. on that date. They
were all registered and the 32 receipts
obtained before 12 o'clock. The re
straining order printed above was not
served on Mr. Kincald until exactly
at 4:40 p. m., or 4J hours after the act
sought to be restrained had been com
mitted, and the United States malls
had already carried all the sealed
ballots for each county to Portland.
Secretary "Ivlncaid telegraphed
Chairman 'St'a'rr at Portland as soon
ns the order of the court was nerved,
and the Democratic chairman tele
graphed back that the ablest counsel
would uppcar to rdply or demur, and
that t lie pcoplo would sustain him In
his action In sending out the oillcinl
bajlot m he haa done. Attorneys
Holmes mid D'Arcy called and as
sured Mr. Kincald that the restrain
mg oracr coma not stand, it came
too late, If such an order upon a co
ordinate branch of the state govern
ment could bo iwmed at once.
The order itself i'is based upon false
statements, false construction of law,
In which Zera Snow attempts to con
strue the law to knock out the Bryan
electors ns Democrats, and because
the secretary ofstiitc had refused lo
entertain his theory he gets an order
of a court to compel the secretary to
do what he believes It would be clearly
unlawful for him to do. The petition
to the court, which Judge Hewitt has
signed bears- a licion the face of It
when It says tiiiitfljon. N. L. Butler
has not accepted, any nomination.
Butler accepted all three nominations,
one September 20 nnd another Sep
tember 29, and another October 0.
But In splto of this they swear Butler
has accepted no nomination.
THEY DIE KICKING HARD.
The Oreganlnn , today says: "It
will be noticed ttia M. L. Olmstcad's
name has been dropped, and that of
W. II. Spaugli substituted In the list
of fusion candidates. This Is another
surprise. The resignation of Olm
stead was not given.out, until the last
hour today. It is.fcald Olmstcad re
signed last Friday. W. II. Spaugli is
the regular nominee of the state Pop

candidates who wJuld not submit to
the fusion scheme. 'and would not get

any credentials f rojuj,eJthcr the Bryan

It appears that he is the nominee of
The records show that 'Mr. Spaugli
Is the regular nominee of the three
parties. He accepted the Populist
nomination and under sec. 30 of the
law, which Mr. (Spaugli quotes In his
letter of acceptance, he declares that
accepting one nomination Is equiva
lent of accepting all. This Is the law
and that one acceptance is an -acceptance
of all subsequent nominations.

Of course, no opinion he can have

farcical. Secretary of State Kincald
did well to ask no Idleman opinions
in this contest about the electors.
Idleman is making an oillclal nuis
