cost of the bridge which Was let by

any of these howlers cottid have built
the bridge cheaper why did they not
bid on the same? The excess of $100
its CJtfsed vy the fact that suggestions
were made by a number of people
that the timber specified in the con
tract were not large enough, wherein
the court authorised tho contractors
to substitute heavier timbers than the

and the county court recognized that

IBS OLD SOLPlEt.
The political party that presumes to de
tract from the valoe of the services to this
nation of the Onion soldier will have, as
soon as this ohject 1? generally known, but
a small foil iwing. The old soldier is
linked by blood to nearly every family In
the Northern states. Where is the man or
woman, youth or maiden, boy or rirl, that
does not pulnt with pardonable pride to the
representatives of their families who fd
owed tbe old flag to victory ia its time of
No political party ever organised but that
claimed to represent the best interests of :
the people. Today people jndge parties by P'ams rdoui me way
what they do, not by what they proclaim been conducted.
in platforms and resolutions.
Tbe peoples' party baa never mentioned
the word pensions in tbeir platforms. At
their last convention after tbe platform bad
beeu publicly adopted the leaders of the
party slipped in that Old greenback gag
about equalising the pay of the soldier with
that of the bond bolder, which by tbe way
they as well as all others know will never
be done. They sneaked this into the nlat
form for the purpose only of circulating in
Northern states. ' Tbe true platform, the
one published in the Sooth, does not even
contain this recognition of ibe Union veter
an of tbe late war. Although some of the
members of the peoples' party would favor
liberal pension laws, they are led by men
who despise, tbe name of soldier.
. . Ql icK will poll the largest
vote ever accorded any candidate in
Columbia county. Democrats as well
as republicans are always willing to
support a man because of hta compe
tency and faithfulness. Mr. Quick
possesses both of I here honorable iitial
ities, to Which the members of both of
tho old parlies can tedify. It ia not
wise policy to make too many changes
m the office, of county clerk. The
welfare and credit of a county are
principally dependent Upon the re
cohls in the clerk's office, and unless
they are kept in proper shape the
county is in peril.. During the four
years that Mr. Quick lias been clerk
we have not heard one' word of com-
the office has
fj. W. Blakesley'b experience as
deputy sheriff for the past four years
qualifies him fpr the office . for which
lie is now a candidate. - He is thor
pgjhly competent to fill, With . credit,
any office in the county. In order
for a man to be efficient aa sheriff be
must have bad sonje experience rjnder
)ii predecessor, otherwise he ia liable
to make blunders Which, would cause
no enJ of trouble and. expense to the
county. Jl js risky business to elect
a sheriff that ;as bad no experience
and is amqst a tota) stranger fti the
county, in fact in the state. Mr
Jilakesley has beep identified with
jbolutnbia counties history from child
hood and his manliness iind abijily
will be attested by. otyr people by a
)arge majority on June 6th.
Wiies Judge Blanchard's term ss
county judge expired in 1880, Colom
bia, county was out of debt and. pur
pounty warrants were at par. This
pan only be accounted for by the fact
that he is a thorough business man
and knew how to conduct the affairs
of the county, beipg perfectly familjar
with a)l portions and knowing best
how to njeet the circumstances that
came up. Tljis can. not be said, of l,iis
ppponent, who If eomparaljvely a new

The republican oaiional convention
meets iu Minneapolis nest Tuesday
at which time and place .candidates
for president and vies president will
be nominated. It looks now as if
the respective chances for Harrison
and Blaine were about even. Blaine,
no doubt, could get the nomination if
be would openly announce himself for
tbe place, but this he has not done
snd it is not likely that be will do so.
He is the strongest man in the repub
lican party today, and if nominated
would Insure the success of the na
tional ticket in Novenlber. These
two names are the only ones men
tioned in connection with tbe nomi
nation as yet.
If the people of Columbia county
are awake to their best interests and
welfare, they will vole as a unit for
Norman Merrill for representative. He
is a man who has been identified with
the business interests of Columbia
county a)) his life and know better
that) any other the needs of his na
tive) county ; further than this he is a
man that never shirks bis duty, and
is ready ai)d willing toraise his voic
for right, no matter what influence
may be brought to bear in the case.
Such a man should represent Colum
bia county in the Oregon legislature.
Hypocrites are not the kind of meu
to make laws.
Israel Spencer, for county com
missioner, ia tlie right man In the right
place. Mr. Spencer has been a mem
ber of the county court for four years
and has been a faithful servant, never
neglecting his duties, but ever watch
ful of the county's best Interests.
There is no reason why we should at
this time change a man of 'experience
for one who is not familiar with the
county's affairs. Mr. 8pcncer deserves
the support of all good citizens, irre
spective of party or politic. The
county court should not be political
in any sense.

What Woman Thinks
Eatroa Oasoov Mfsn I have been fre
quently reminded of late by prominent
men of the peoples' party that we women
ought to use all our influence 'to help the
peoples' party gain tlie victory in the com
ing election, "as tbey were avowed advo
cates of Woman's Rights, and had a plahk
hi tbeir platform for our especial benefit.
ITiiw, I wish to say right here that I do not
believe the peoples' party ever intended to
pledge themselves to woman sutTrage.
I consider the wording of that plank just
a trap constructed by the leaders of that
party to catch the opposers of woman suf
frage, as well as the progressive, liberal-
minded republicans. Had tbe peoples'
party wished to pledge themselves to wo
man sutTrage they never would have worded
tbeir so called woman suffrage plank a
they did. They knew Just as well as I do
that women bad been denied tbe rigbta and
privileges of citizens by the highest tribun
als of the land (supreme court) and conse
quently could not possibly come under that
class. 80. had tlicy been honest with us.
they would never have used the word
'citizen" when they meant "woman,"
until we had been recognized as cltixens n
more ways than paying taxes and suffering
the penalties for any laws violated by us.
It would be easy to convince a voter
(when it seemed necessary) that "citizen"
meant "woman;" and it would be easier
still, to convince an opposer of woman suf
frage that no reference whatever was made
to women In the plank, and, bring many
