A POLICY OF GRAVE-ROBBISG
The democratic party Is sure to
win. The people are viitU us this
year, and they are in sympathy with
the principles which shall be en-bodied
in the Kansas City platform, and
which represent the feelings of the
gteal mass of American people. W.
Among the principles that will be
embodied in the Kansas City plat
form are those which were declared
in the Chicago platform four years
ago. They will go in a lump. Oue
of the Chicago principles was set
forth in this language:
We are unalterably opposed to
monometalism, which has locked fast
the prosperity of an industrious
people in the paralysis of hard times.
The paralytics of 1896 are up and
about now, and they are a pretty
brisk and stirring lot. Nevertheless,
the association for the exhibition of
political dementia, which will as
semble at Kansas City on July 4lh,
will solemnly declare that we are nil
in the grip of the paralysis of hard
times, and they will denounce the
gold standard as the cause of it.
The lirjarites are determined to
go to the grave ot dead things for
roost of their issues. What an
awakening campaign they will make
on declarations calculated for the
industrial meridian of 1896. New
Joint representative He is a roan
whom those who know him best will
delight to honor. He has a record,
too, as a .'egislaior and it is tLat of
a clean, upright, honorable and
independent man nhora the tongue
of calumny has never attempted to
besmirch. When the lamented J. N.
Dolph was defeated for selection, T.
II. MrGreer had the manliness tW
stand by the caucus nominee of his
p.iity till the lust vole was counted
and the ablest senator Oregon ever
had went clown in defeat. Mr. Mc
Greerhas been identified with the
stock interests of Wasco county for
nearly a score of years. He is en
titled to the solid republican vote of
his district, and, what is more, he
will get it.
Our esteemed contemporary says
"Judge Bennett addressed a large
and enthusiastic audience of voters
at Antelope" last Saturday. The
"large and enthusiastic audience," ac
cording to a thoroughly reliable
witness, consisted of between thirty
and forty persons, two-thirds of
whom were women. However it
may have been with the women, the
chairman was so much "enthused"
that be fell asleep and, to the great
amusement of the audience, timed
the judge's speech with a discordant
symphony of lusty snores. "If there
is anything in appearances," to bor
row the phrase of our contemporary,
"the Judge will receive a handsome
vote," but it will be to stay at home.
ALTOGETHER TOO OPTIMISTIC.
We have it on good authority that
Judge Bennett told the people of
Klamath and Lake counties that he
would carry Wasco county by 400
majority. The judge is more opti
mistic than bis history will justify.
A man who has been defeated at the
polls three times in succession
cannot afford to bo very optomistic
over the result of his fourth race.
The judge will be mighty !ucky if
lie is not defeated in his home
county b) more than 400 majority.
Years ago when the judge was study.
ing law and this county ivas demo
cratic he was elected as school super
imendent. After ho was admitted
to the bar, the county slill being
democratic, he was elected to the
legislature; before the legislature
met he repudiated the honor con
ferred on him and accepted a circuit
judgeship for the petty, unexpired
term of one year, and involved the
county In the expense of a special
election of a member of the legis
lalure to succeed himself. For this
.ct of perfidy, as many esteemed it,
numbers of his best friends never
forgave him and never will. There
lias hardly been a biennial election
since when he was not up for some
thing, and every time he has been
knocked out. It will be the came
this time. Our informant says the
judge has been preaching "free trade,
free silver, anti-expansion, anti-
proeperity and anti-everything," but
that he does not believe the judge
bag changed one single vote; for no
man with a single ounce of politicat
horse sense would expect to carry a
Ingle county in this senatorial dis
trict on a platform like that.
Was ever a more odious compari
son made than a reference to Aguin
aldo as a "Washington?" asks the
Astorian. The American who so
characterizes him is a Benedict
Arnold. The tories who called
Washington a bandit, the copper
heads who dubbed Lincoln a butcher,
may be recognized today In those
who call McKinley a blunderer. As
Ibo patriotic democrats supported
the federal government in the great
crisis of the civil war, so today every
democrat worthy of the name of
patriot points with pride to the star
epangled banner where Dewey plant
d it oa (he island of Luzon and says:
4il hope to God it will float there
There is no better man on the re
publican ticket, nor on any other
ticket, than T. H. McCrecr, of
Anteiofe, republican nominee for
Colorado, Idaho, Montana and
Wyoming considered the free coin
age of silver so necessary to their
interests that they gave Bryan more
than four votes to McKinlcy's one,
says the Inter Ocean. Most people
in these four states were sincerely
convinced that without free silver
tbey would bo utterly ruined. Yet
these states were never more solidly
prosperous than now. Not only has
the denial of free silver failed to
ruin them, but under the gold
standard they have grown enormous
ly in wealth.
Klickitat county democrats went
through the form of holding a coun
ty convention last week. As about
ouly half the precincts were rcpre
seined a motion was tnauc ana car
ried that every man in the meeting
who was friendly to Bryan should
consider himself a delegate. Then
the convention solemnly resolved,
"That wo as democrats do hereby
indorse and ratify the time-honored
principles of the old democratic
party," but very significantly said
never a word about the Bryanitc
fetich of 16 to 1.
tor for the ninth district. He is
conceded by all to be an able ad
vocate of the people and ono who
will represent their Interests in the
state senate." Times-Mountaineer.
There is every reason why he
should not be elected, lie is for
free trade. The people are for pro
tection. He is for free silver. The
people are for the gold standard.
Ho is against expansion. The people
are for it. lie would haul down the
flag in the rhilippioes. The people

planted it. Ab, but he is "conceded
by all to be an able advocate of the
people and one who will represent
their interests in the state seuate."
"Able?" Yes. ''Advocate of the
people an1 one who will represent
their interests in the state senate?"
No. His is ability wrongly directed,
and ability wrongly directed is the
ability to do mischief. Let him stay
George T. Baldwin, railroad presi
dent and fusion candidate for joint
representative for Wasco, Crook,
Klamath and Lake, and Judge A. S.
Bennett, who hates railroad presi
dents as the dnvil hates holy water,
spoke from the same platform a
short lime nso in Ltkeview. It
would appear from the report of the
judge's speech, as given in the Luke
view Examiner, that he was prudent
ly silent about that bogus railroad
plank of his. The appearance of
railroad presid.nt and an anti-rail
road lawyer on the same platform
asking the dear people for a chance
to give them remedial legislation, is
a sight for gods and men. We
would give a year's subscription to
The Chronicle to have these two
Bryanite musicians sing a duct to
the railroad men f The Dalles.

On the day that the news reached
the 1'acific coast that the Spanish
fleet had been sunk in the harbor of
Manila, there was not an American
from the Kooky mountains to the
ocean who was not ready to' cry:
"Perdition crush the hand that would
strike the American flag from any
ig staff where American arms and
American valor has placed it." That
is the American sentiment still, a&d
the republican party stands for it
with all that it implies.
The number of votes registered
the several precincts of Wasco
county, according to the list pub
lished in another column, is 3,102
This is an excess of ten over the
number of votes cast at the presi
dential election of 1896, an excess of
768 over the number or votee cast
for governor in 1898. The number
of votes is taken' from the World
Almanac, which gives 3092 for 18.96
and 2331 for 1898.
