KEPUELICAK PARTY KEEPS A
GOOD SAil A RITAS'.
The following correspondence by
Thomas Harlan upon the political eitua
tion is a true resume of the past and a
prophecy for the future. The points
enumerated are all within the domain of
fact, and the conclusions are their legiti
mate outcome. Mr. Harlan is a well
known ex-politician of Nebraska, who
ia as well known to the Nebraska press.
In naming Robert Lincoln for the stand
ard bearer of the republican party three
years heuce it is believed lie coincides
with the present general sentiment of
republicans, who, though now so de
moralized, Mr. Harlan believes to be
again destined to victory.
Mr. Editoh Having been requested
by a reporter of your paper to contribute
something concerning the political par
ties of Unlay and the cause of tho defeat
of the republican party in the last na
tional campaign; also something con
cerning our hope of success in the future,
I have to say that I do not feel able to
make a post mortem examination of the
remains of the once "grand old party"
and tell everv cause of its demise. One
leader? A leader whose views upon me
tariff question are known to have been
extremely liberal is the only leader who
HOIIKRT T. LINCOLN
is a broad-minded, liberal republican of
the Maine style, known to be conserva
tive upon the principles of tariff and
reciprocity. He may not lie the ablest
man in the party, but he belongs to this
generation of men. He is of the right
age, and has shown enough ability to
prove that he would make a good presi
dent, and the fitness of things points to
him as being the man now in sight that
it would be in the power of the republi
can party to elect.
Lincoln is not a politician ; he is a
statesman that can be supported by all.
With Robert T. Lincoln at the head of
the republican ticket in 1836, the repub
licans would sweep the country. Not
because he is the son of Abraham Lin
coln, a fact that Robert would scorn to
take advantage of ; but because he is a
modest, unassuming, able, capable man.
In fact, as above stated, the republi
can party has lost no strength. Fairly
managed it is stronger today than it has
been for the last twelve years. And
Of all the plans
for advertising our state and securing
immigration this seems to be the most
sensible and feasible. This book is to
be no gaudily-covered affair on cheap
paper, nor even a brochure, but a haud
soi.io, large-sued book of the best enam
elled paper, filled with half-tono Illus
trations and choice reading matter the
nearest example of which we cun think,
but which is yet better and larger than
the one In mind being "Astoria by
Col. Pat Donan. As notwithstanding
the immense edition of this work, it will
cost iu the neighborhood of 40 cents each,
it will lie seen that it will be a rare
treasure, and will not be subjected to
the careless indifference of the thousands

find a place in the library or on the eon

the enterprise, F.ugene fSOO, Salem $1,800

: This means a saving of many thousands
right. A large majority of the Ameri
can people are republicans in principle.
The party has lost nothing in strength ;
but they will never put the republican
party in power while it is .controlled by
by the present political bosses, who
manipulate its conventions and domin
ate its actions in the interests of spoils
hunters. It is an army without a gen
eral. Give it a good general and it will
win. The managers of the party may
publish calls for conventions, and pass
resolutions that the party still lives and
that the people will know more and be
wiser when they are told more about
the McKinley law ; but they are gener
als without an army and have no power.
As an existing fact the old party is dead.
There was no other way of getting the
old leeches loose. The machinery of the
republican party killed the party. It
bad become a disgraceful scramble of
mediocrity for spoils. Thousands upon
thousands of republicans bolted Harri
son in all of the states because he was
the machine nominee, the nominee of
the spoils hunters, many voting for
Cleveland, a few for Weaver, and many
not at all. Ingersoll was silenced, or
rather kept silent ; Greshan. went over
to the other side ; in fact the heart of
the old party was torn out of it. The
party without a heart then became close
communion. Weaver had no real fol
lowing. There was really no third
party, and there is none today. They
had no principles to follow. The demo
crats gave Weaver the states that he
carried to keep Harrison from carrying
them. The disaffected and disgusted
republicans went everywhere and any
where to get away from the political
hyenas, and they will stay away until
the hyenas are properly disposed of.
Of all the republican states Nebraska
bas suffered the most from republican
misrule, and yet Nebraska, fairly man
aged with an unpacked convention with
the old professional politicians laid
Aide, would be overwhelmingly repub
lican. The same is true of Kansas in a
less degree, and pre-eminently true of
Colorado and Nevada.

The cereal situation is far from satis
factory. The future prospects for
repetition of 1801 in an over production
is not expected, judging from the report
from the U. 8. department of agricul
ture, as the present average wheat con
dition shows only 77.4 per cent, of a full
crop. Oregon's standing is 00 per cent.,
while California bus 67 per cent., and
other prominent wheat states average

needless to state that this letter is as in
sincere as the nefarious scheme it sug
gests. It is also one of the oldesl of
chestnuts and has been exposed :n
newspapers and. books for at least thirty
years. The victims who it attracts go to
New Jersey and give np from t"00 to

times that amount in spurious bills, but
they get sawdust or blank paper. They
cannot well complain to the authorities
that they have been swindled, and the
best thing for them to do is to maintain
a discreet silence. Of course they are
blood for every drop of sweat that had
been wrung from the brow of a slave."
The modern democratic party, like
the wreck of the republican party, is a
party o spoils hunters. It is already
going into factions over the distribution
of spoils. It cares less for principle
than for office, and will be worse divided
s the administration goes on.

panic, w hen they took advantage of this
provision of law and thereby saved them
selves from bankruptcy and their patrons
from loss. A solvent bank is often short
of ready money and in case of a sudden

could not meet the demands. This has
caused the collapse of hundred of good
banks in the past, but the Michigau law
will decrease the per cent, nma.ingly.

CONDITION OF WINTER tlUAIN.
The first report of the condition of

77.4 against 81.2 last year, and that of
The averages of the principal w he.it
states are: Ohio, 87; Michigan, 74; In
iliuna, 82, Illinois, 72; Missouri, 70 ; and
Kansas, 02. The average of these six
states is 74.2 against 77 in April, 1802.
It is BS in New York, 87 in Pennsylvania,
80 in Maryland, 87 iu Virginia, the
southern states ranging from 83 in Ten

stutes show a favorable condition with
the exception of California, w here too

The plant entered winter, in the main

and early cold weather, w ith the excep

J )am8ge from Hessian fly is noted in
parts of the states of Ohio, Michigan,
Indiana and Illinois. Snow covering
has been general throughout the East

but, notwithstanding, the rexirts show
much abatement from the Uinelits of
