Talk about your program I he Republicans of Solano county are nan pure programmers, and don't know it, Saturday last they met in onvention at Vacaville. It Is generally -opposed that conventions are for the purpose of making nominations. Not o this one. It wae merely a ratification Express. Now, my dear Express, did you not snow that quite a large number of ward 0 jliticLms from Vallejo were up here at >ur late convention, attending both the primaries and the convention, and learned just how to do it? They saw the push in Woodland at the primaries, with tueir tickets all written out and held in the fingers of the "b'boys." They saw tho little anide boas' election clerks and judgea at every polling place just as aoon as the heelers were there. They Saw them try not to wait until the business men got around. They saw the tickets all quickly thrown into the hat and counted and the polls de- clared closed, wherever they could do it, before the people generally knew a primary was on. Then they waited for the convention, and saw it. They saw the committee on order of business se- lected and the order of business written up tne night before the convention. They saw the platform and resolutions all fixed at the eame time. They saw the order of business shaped in a way that was never heard of before in a Republi- can convention in California. They saw the two candidates of the posh three, the gentleman from who waa thrown the night before the convention. They heard the order to ratify on the next day at the convention, and they saw it all carried out to a T. They saw large numbers of good Republicans go away disgusted. But what of that? They had learned something. They had learned bow to do it, and they went home and did it. 80 why are you ob- jecting? You should compliment them on their apt scholarship. Another thing they learned while here was that federal office-holders were not prohibited by the civil service rales trom running politics. They learned that Hart North, who is some kind of a Chinese inspector, or immigration com- missioner, who, they say, has forgotten the location of his office ie San Francisco, here aiding our deputy collector in running the convention. They learned that a man could hold the office >f deputy collector at a salary of or something like that, and the office of countv assessor at the aame time at a lalary of per year in open viola- tion of the constitution of the State, and run politics of the time, Yes, they leutned a whole lot, and for a. paper here at home to take them to 1 ask lor putting then knowledge to niaetical use don't seem exactly the correct thing. You see those Vallejo and Benicia fellows are no mid when they see a good thing they know it. The only difference between our convention and theirs was they said, "To with the no'rthern part of the while it seems ours copied the immortal language of Vanderbilt, and implied, "To with the people."
