PARTY LOYALTY AHOYK ERIESD-
Tbe mn wbo allows bimclf to lie
beguiled by clever sieecbes from
ilcaiocrsts, into believing that llie

Grids to be things of the past, says
the Pendleton Tribune. It is Im
possible to eliminate the personal
element in a county election, amun;
men who have known each other
for a number of years. This fact
roust be met and contended wiih as
far as possible, but the new man has
Dot that obligation of friendship
upon him and can vote straight for
bis ticket. We do not condone
voting for any man on an opposite
ticket but accept it as a fact that
men do such things, even when their
own party principles are much at
stake. There arc times hen it may
be done better than now, among re
publicans particularly. This is a
year when party loyalty is above all
friendships. Oregon, as has been
repented, strikes the key note of te
campaign throughout the entire
couctry. Let a single county in this
state go democratic nd it weakens
the effect of republicanism on the
United States. Bryan and bis fol
lowers will make the most of every
item in their favor. If one democrat
is elected in any county they will
boast of it, and if several are elected
they, will claim the entire county.
The results from constable to su
preme judge will be added together
and as big an account credited to
democracy as it will be within the
power of democrats and populists to
create. Were it not presidential
year it would not be so necessary
for men to vote for republican
principles instead of personal friends,
but the possibilities of a change of
policy in the administration of our
government should not be allowed 10
gain an iota of strength. One couuty
officer placed in the court bouse by
the democrats is too great an
achievement to allow, and can be
prevented if republicans vote solidly
for their ticket, which aside from
political reasons is well worthy of
their undivided support.
Referring to the timely letter of
M. J. Anderson, printed in another
column, The Ciihomclk at this time
has only this one word to say. The
editor of the Times-Mountaineer
never meant to be fair in iti attacks
on Mr. Roberts. The editor ot that
paper well knows that if there is any.
thing wrong about the increase of
the superintendent's salary that Mr.
Roberts is responsible only in a
alight degree. The increrse of salary
was lacked on as an amendment to
the Daly educational bill, known as
senate bill No. 3. The amendment
wk referred by the senate to the
Wasco delegation, which consisted of
Senators John Micbell and E. 15.
Dufur. They agreed on the amount
and so reported and both voted for
the hill on its final passage. In this
form the bill went to the bouse,
where it was referied to the judiciary
committee which reported It back,
recorr mending that it do pass, with
certain trifling amendments. In the
form recommended the bill passed
and Mr. Roberts voted for it. The
editor of the Times-Mountaineer
knew all this when he attacked
Mr. Roberts for voting for an
amendment that bad been introduced
and passed in the other house, by
the open vote of a man now seeking
election on the fusion ticket. If it
was wrong in Mr. Roberts to vote
for the amended bill, what was it in
Mr. Dufur? Will the Times-Mountaineer
'Tbe democratic party has not

aineer. That's a mighty lad break
for a democrat. Forty years ago,
wis I860 and the tUaioc-ralic party
was mixed up at that time and for
tho live subsequent years in some
little affaiis that wo are all trying
our best to forcet. VTueu Howard

RAXKISO OS IUSORASTE.
The stark ignorance of the It iker
City Democrat or the cenfldence
with which it banks on tho ignorance
of its reader is conclusively demon
strated by tho following, which lately
appeared in the editorial columns of
that paper. The ouly comment
neeessaiy at this time is that tbe ship
subsidy bill has never been before
the lower bouse of congress for the
action of Messrs. Tongue and Moody,
and consequently they have no ex
planation of their action to mako to
The Hon. Malcolm A. "foody and
the Hon. Thomas H. "'Vngue, our
present representative. ..re called
upon to explain their action in tbe
proposed ship subsidy steal that Is
being engineered through congress
by Mark Hanna. For political effect
the measure has been temporarily
dro ped, but will be revived after
tbe presidential election and mado a
law, unless the people arise and crush
these plaint tools who wear the brand
and collar of the Hanna ring. The
Standard Oil Company, and other
c i in i rial trusts of their like, hope to
rob the public of millions of dollars
by the passage of the ship subsidy
bill. Tbe Oregonian has denounced
the stea! in strong terms. Their lack
of consideration for tho people's in
te rests and their friendly actions for
tbe trust kings is sutlicient to condemn
Tongue and Moody to oblivion
There is but one way to thwart the
machinations of tbat imperious
rogue, Mark Hanna, defeat his bench
men at tbe polls. Voters, it is with
in your provinco to protect your
selves against the most gigantic
robbery ever attempted upon the
American people. Klect Tongue and
Moody and the steal is by your sane
tion; defeat them, and Hanna is
powerless to work bis infamous
designs. Vote tor Smith and Daly.

have come into bis bands have been
promptly turned over to tbe county
treasurer. His books are models of
neatness, clearness and correctness.
Through bis dilligenco as tax col
lector the number of delinquents was
never so small, and tho amount of
interest thereby saved to the county
bas gone a long way towards paying
bis salary. He bas always been
found at tbe post o' duly and has
been sheriff in fact as well as in
name. This record, which is un
questioned and unquestionable, en
titles him to the second term for
w'iich be was nominated.
Tbe Times-Mountaineer says "the
democratic party doesn't want the
guilt on its bands of stealing Cuba."
Who proposes to give it a chance to
steal anything? It stole enough of
wages out of our pockets and bread
out of our mouths and clothes off our
backs during the last four years of its
supremacy to entitle it to be put in
the penitentiary for life.
The Dalles-Celilo boat railway
scheme that, whether designedly or
not, has been a stalking horse long
enough for killing off or postponing
the only practicable permanent im
provement, a canal and locks, seems
to have been abandoned for good.
The Times-Mountaineer is just
now profoundly impressed with the

Oregonian. Mr. Moody has been

energy should be returned by an
overwhelming vote, provided bo is
sound on main questions. Mr.
Moody's loyalty to republican prin
ciples has never been questione 1.
He deserves tho gracious compliment
of an increased majority.

When Judge Bennett entered the
