FBI DA f, APRIL 37, 1894.
Tlit pojuill't party .of this county lost
, ast fust euoVlgh before it late Convention,
bu( since that crowning act of stupidity,
Ilia must anient supporters of the party are
wavering and lukewarm, while the rank
and Hie of the party is out of Joint alto
getter. Putting politic out of the ques
tion entirely, the personnel of the populist
ticket cannot compare at all with that of
tbe republican ticket, and when the ques
tion of ability, executive and otherwise, is
roiled, 111 disparity becomes infinitely
greater. The populists Ignored what little
talent they had in their party; their only
vbject seenting to be desire to make up a
(k'ket, no Matter whether it was one that
wouadeawsraaand' votes or derision: and al
ejtmigli when first nominated the ticket was
pronounced an exceptionally stong one by
few of its maker, it was never received
is siroh even by the populists, and since
tbe republican ticket has been placed be-
for the peopio, -Jttie pnpuliat ticket has lost
faittr faster than ever for the simple rea
on that the voters recognize the glaring
disparity between the men. There is not a
randidute on the populist ticket who has
ver had any experience in any of these
voices, and, with one or two possible ex
ceptions, none who have the ability to per
form their duties in an efficient and accept
able manner. The men whose names Bu
lbar on the populist ticket, were put up as
candidates for office, simply because they
claim tj be in sympathy with the party,
and not ewcawse they have any special or
ordinary qualifications far the offices to
which they ask tbe people to elect them,
These are facts which cannot be success
fully eoenbntted by the populists, and the
incompetency which the party has dis
played in naming a county ticket is only
an example of itsunlttness to govern in
tMligently , and a vivid reflection of its in
adequate resources as a responsible pcliti-
al party. '
ANOTHKR POPULIST BLINDER.
Mr. Copeland cannot expect the comity
to jeopardise its interests in the dangerous
manner it would do by making him a mem
ber of the county coart at this particular
time, occupying, as he does, the position
f a defendant in an action by the county
to recover stolen funds, on an official bond
which bears his name as surety fur a large
sum. Such an inconsistent act would never
be committed outside tbe pale of the popu
list party, and, like everything else that
party does, is wholly untenable and incom
patible with the interests of safe local gov
ernment. Mr. Copelaad's personal inter
ests are now in direct conflict with those of
tbe county, and will be until this bond is
made good by the men whose names ap
pear upon It, and to put this candidate in
the commissioners' court would be to put
him in a position to defeat tbe county's in
terests by subordinating them to his own.
It is no impeachment of a man's integrity
to say that he will look to his personal in
terests first, for self-protection is the first
law of nature, and one that is seldom vio
lated, even in a commissioners' court; and,
this being the rule. Mr. Copeland cannot
rightfully be expected to be one of the ex
ceptions to it. The people of this county
want a representation in the county court
whose interests are identical with their
own, and who cannot be biased by personal
motives or adverse interests. Tbe end of
the litigation in which this matter will in
volve tbe county is at present a mere mat
ter of speculation, but it certainly la not
now in sight, and if Mr. Copeland should
be elected it would undoubtedly continue
far into bis term. In view of these facts
tbe people of this county cannot indorse
Mr. Copeland' nomination for this respon
sible position. They will send a man to the
county coart who has but one purpose, and
that to serve the beat interests of the people.
Fortlaxd's citizens have put themselves
oa record as people of common sense by
refusing to feed and fondle that organized
sob of tramps and bunuaera, the ' 'Indus
trial ai my," which arrived there a few days
since from California, expecting to be re
ceived with open arms, given an ovation ,
and supported id idleness as long as they
should choose to stay, but aside from a
little curiosity soon after their arrival, they
have attracted no Attention and yery few
converts. They had evidently hoped,
through the influence of Mr. Fennoyer, to
be welcomed to the state and given both
moral and financial support, but much to
their surprise and chagrin they have found
that although Mr. Fennoyer is their sym
pathizer and our governor, the people, gen-
crally, have as much contempt for Mr.
Fennoyer as they have for this aggregation
of hobos, and bave as little use for noted
.crank as they have for a common one.
Portland is entitled to tiie gratitude of
everybody in the state for the sensible man
ner in which these lazy bummers have
Iwe disposed of, and if other places where
they go will gie them a like reception, they
-will soon cease to be an annoyance to tbe
xieople and a menace to the country.
Will Mxskivk's nomination, on the re
publican ticket, for the responsible-office
of county surveyor was in line with the
other good work of the convention and one
xrf the wisest acts of that be4y. Besides
being staunch republican and a young
man ol integrity and enviable reputation ,
Mr. Meserve is a finished mathematician
nd a practical surveyor and civil engineer.
Ver number of years past he has devoted
most of hi time to the study and practice
of civU engineering, and for the past two
years-lias filled the office of deputy county
wurveyo -Jf elected, Mr. Meserve will take
possession1 of kts -office not as a novice or a
Ntadwnt, but as a ijnivbe -engineer, capa
ble f performing his duties in an Intelli
gcnifnd satisfactory manner. He is widely
know throughout the county and justly
enjoys tire respect and confidence of all
who know him. Ail voters of this county
who wimt to see one of our most responsi
ble offices safely administered will lndore
Mr. Meserve's nomination by giving him a
handsome majority in the June election.
PErrrs, tlie 8 is f tin populists, will also
be thelast. By the time, three years hence,
wbea tfce Kansas-crank drops into oblivion
from which lie was riragaed three years ago,
fh po(Ut party will he -only -a reminis
cence. 1 Taps to 4 piWeipuss-oT Inconsistency, !
the cardinal principal of their fartyv Site j
kiuIIhu have nominated a matiforcounty I
sjwrveyor wbe-kaows nothing at aU lut
surveying, and who never saw a surveyor'!
compass, except in the hands of someone
else. In the improbable event of his elec
tion. Mr. Deitrii'k expects to accept the
office and learn to perform its duties after
ward, at the expense of the county, but the
people will orduin otherwise and elect a
man to this responsible office who is a prac
tical surveyor and understands his business.
The people of this county are not educating
officers; they are simply electing them
The ottk-e of surveyor is one of the most
important in the county, and if intrusted
to the care of a comuetent engineer, ser
ious complications will be ii voided ; whereas
if it is left to the supervision of a wholly
incompetent man, endless litigation and
trouble will be tbe natural result. We
want no novices In our county offices; there
are plenty of competent men to occupy
them. As a private citixen, Mr. Deitrick
commands the respect of his neighbors, but
as a candidate for surveyor of this connty
he cannot command their votes He sim
ply accepted, the nomination to till out the
ticket; not with th ho of being elected.
We have had quite a sufficiency of populist
incompetency in public places iu this county
Let us stop tliis catering to spasmodic po
litical heresy, and in the future elect men
who understand their duties and will per
form tlieni without asking the county to

Populists, never weary of lamenting
over what they allege to be a urinous
crime the demonetisation of euv
look at the followiusr. If they would
carefully investigate ths monetary
question, instead of accepting the
false allegation of cheap newspaper
men, they would soon cease alleging
that that the republican party de
stroyed one-half the debt-paying power
of our nation by the act of laiii
Soon after gold was discovered in
California and Australia, the Neither-
lands, Belgium, and Germany demon
etized gold, feariui; it should become
so plentiful as to depreciate iu value.
Although silver was bringing a small
premium iu the United States, in 1853
a democratic cougresa made it a legal
tender for no sum over five dollars,
The production and coinage of silver
up to 1870 had not beeu important,
amounting to only twelve millions for
the decade of the sixties, but the great
Comstock and other mines were dis
covered soon after, and as nearly all
tire leading nations of Europe hud
changed front and adopted gold as
their standard, it looked unjust to our
American interests that we should ac
cept payment of duties ou imports in
a coin which they bad rejected ami
which our productions bad suddenly
bounded up to three hundred and sev
enty-five millions during the decade
of the seventies, one hundred and six
ty-eight millions of which was coined.
Even senator Stewart, of evada, had
not become bo biased in hi opinions
but what he voted for what is known
as the demonetization act, although
he claims be did not know it for six
years, and then neglected to kick him
self for twelve more . years. Iu the
meantime our production of the while
metal in the United States alone
reached the enormous sum of five
hundred .and thirty-five millions for
tbe decade of the eighties, three nun
dred and seventeen millions of which
was coined. Notwithstanding this
great production of wealllMbere would
have beeu but little in circulation, or
in the vaults of the treasury, hud not
the Sherman law provided for the pur
chase of four million hve hundred
thousand ounces per month, and, even
then, only three hundred and eighty
millions of silver was owned by the
government in 1890, fifty-six millions
of which being all that could be forced
into circulation in the form of stand
ard dollars, the balance lying idle as
bullion aud represented by proxy in
the form of silver certificates. It is
evidently apparent that silver is avail
able as a circuit ling medium only iu
small amounts, and principally as a
subsidiary coin or fractional currency ;
and it is further apparent that while
tbe demonetization act unioabtedly
prohibited the importation of an ar
ticle we . were already overstocked
with, it in no way abridged its useful
ness at home or affected its value
abroad to any great extent. Of tbe
one billion five hundred and ninety-
three millions in circulation July 1st,
1893, nine bnndred and fifty-eight mil
lions were a legal tender; and as there
were only fifty -seven millions of stand
ard gold dollars in circulation at the
same dale, anyone can readily see
their relative proportions, and also see
how near fifty-seven comes to being
equal to nine hundred and fifty-eight.
In other words, without the force and
influence of the so called heinous
crime tbe two above-named sums
would be a legal tender, permitting
silver to be divided into sums of five
dollars each, but excluding it the re
duction is five and six-tenths per cent
instead of one-half.
Instead of republicans working
against the interests of silver tbey are
its truest and most lasting friends, as
witness the language of the repeal bill,
reading as follows: "And it is hereby I
declared to be tbe policy of the United
States to continue the use of bulb
gold and silver as standard money .and
to coin both gold and silver into money
of equal intrinsic and exchangeable
value, such equality to be secured
through international agreement, or
by such safeguards of legislation as
will insure the maintenance of the
parity in value of the coins of the two
metals, and the equnl power of every
dollar at all times in tbe markets and
in the payment of debts. And it is
hereby further declared that the efforts
of the governments should be steadily
directed to .the establishment of such
a safe system of bimetalism as will
maintain at. all times the equal power
of every dollar coined or issued by tbe
United States in the markets or in the
payment of debts."

A FEW FIGURES.
WBICB SBOW WHY THIS COUNTY IS
IN iTS PBESKNT FINANCIAL
Populist criticism of the county's
present financial condition compels
us to prod ace few figures which
should have the effect of stopping the
windy Vaporing of that class, which
is ever ready to echo Jhe threadbare,
rasping cry of "ting politics" and
"fraud." If the parties who are most
prone to criticise would take the pains
to regularly mad ami study tbe semi
annual financial statements made by
the different officials, the present fi
nancial condition of the county could
be easily understood, and the cause of
it traced to its true source, instead of
it beine charged to dishonesty of
By reference to the last financial
display it will be seen that the county's
liabilities amount to $44,699.49; and
the resources, including deliuqueut
and current taxes, equal that sum .
When Judge Cox retired from tbe
office of probate judge six years ago,
the county was in debt 11,128.07. At
that time the office of commissioner
was created, and since then the county
has gone behind just $7,000 a year,
in round numbers; also since tho ex
istence of the commissioners' court
those two officers have been paid $2.
268.35. Whether or not the office of
commissioner is or has been a paying
investment for this county, we leave
to the judgement of our readers. But
this is a degression we had uot in
tended to make : our real purpose be
ing altogether foreign to commenting
upon the advisability of sustaining
commissioners' court. Tbe object of
this article is to show that for the past
six years the county's receipts Have
been only sufficient to bear its run
ning expenses, other than that ex
pended upon roads, and that almost
the entire indebtedness of the county
today is money that has been spent in
building roads and bridges, and that
the people have received a double ben
efit from such expenditures in having
convenient roads aud receiving pay
for their services in building them
such services as ax men, cbuinmen,
viewers, supervisors, aud other labor.
Since the 31st of March, 1889, the
county debt has increased $43,571.87,
and during that lime tbe county has
expended upon its roads $42,564.98,
leaving a balance of $1,006.96 iu favor
of the county. All this money, with
the exception of part of the contract
price of one 'or two bridges, has beeu
paid out here at home, and tbe people
of tbe county bave received the bene
fit of iC In extenuation of sucb enor
mous expenditures for these two items,
it is only necessary to say that all
roads aud bridges are built at the re
quest and upon the petition of the
leople, aud they, uloJe, are responsi
ble for any money spent iu this way
Duriog the fiscal year ending March
31st, 1894, the county expended $8,-
531.63 on roads and bridges, while
at the same tune the treasury was
burdened to the extent of $3,245 by a
defaulting county officer, aud was put
to a further extra expense of $1,139.15
for ex per ting county books; this latter
item being the result of special agita
tion by the populists. A glance at
tbe last semi-annual report of tbe
county's finances will show that tbe
total delinquent taxes amount to $43,-
ny.w, a large per cent of which is
owed by parties who are making tbe
most noise about the county being in
debt, and if these same people would
pay their taxes, instead of apostrophiz
ing tbe past administration, tbey would
assist in a very substantial manner in
straightening out tbe county's finan
cial complications. If the former
managers of the county's affairs have
failed to keep it out of debt, they bave,
at the same time, dealt leniently with
the laxpsyeis, and never bat once put
ext-a expense upon them by forcing
the collection of taxes. ' This fact ha
not been appreciated by a certain
class of people who are thus nuabled
to evade the tax collector; nor is such
leniency endorsed by another class of
people who regularly and willingly
pay their taxes, and who are really
bearing thecounty'sburdens. Further
comment is unnecessary. A concensus
of tbe above figures shows substan
tially that for tbe past six years the
county has simply gone in debt for
forty-two thousand five hundred -dollars
worth of road improvements, and
has only received euough revenues to
balance its other expenses. It shows
further that this money bas been
spent for the people, among the peo
ple, and by tbe people, and if tbe peo
pie wish to remonstate and put their
veto upon this debt-incurring policy,
they must remonstrate with them
selves and stop petitioning the county
court for a road to every rancher's
cabin in the county.
