While the West Side is dis
tinctively independent, yet it has
positive convictions upon subjects
of pnblio policy. Our readers are
not dummies, but intelligent and
progressive. We shall, no donbt
express "views not entertained by
all who may read our writings, but
we shall always "divide time and
space" with those who may differ
from us. We certainly shall not
run a paper only fit for the morgue,
nor one over whose every issue,
will be necessary to hold a coroner'
inquest We intend to be fair but
shall not wear graveclothes.
As a matter of fact, the people of
Oregon, especially those in the first
congressional district, need the ser
vices of Hon. Binger Hermann,
the congress of the United States.
It was an error upon his part, to
make any pledges as to his retire
ment from the services of the poo
pie, so long as they, desired those
services. It is not certain that he
made those pledges, and whether
he did or not, he is in the hands of
the people. Hr. Harry Miller, of
Josephine connty, declares himself
a candidate against Mr. Hermann,
on the Republican ticket. His
strikers, a little farther north, in
Douglas, will avail but little.
When the day comes for nomina
tion, the cobwebs will all dissapcar
and Mr. Hermann will be nom
inated by acclamation, as Usual.
Referring to a recent strike on
the part of men in New York City
recently, . the Oregonian remarks
that "it is charged, with much ac
companying proof, that pure sel-
flshness on the part of the men in
stituted the strike. They believe,
and with some reason, that if em
ployers are compelled to pay full
wages to women, they will prefer
to hire men instead of women."
That this is not true at least so far
as one industry that of printing
is concerned, the Oregonian need
go no further than its own com
posing room to demonstrate, for
there it will find both men and
women working side by side and
receiving exactly the same pay.
Really it is hard to believe, with
the Oregonian, that Amorican
workingmen ,are such depraved
and selfish wretches; indeed, to
most people the example furnished

But, Mr. Editor, as important as
these questions art, I desire to add
that iu my opinion neither of thorn

tion of who shall represent Oregon
from this district next year. Quite
a number of papers throughout the
district I see are discussing the
possibilities and probabilities of
various candidates, but so far,
have uot observed a single eiyee
tion urged against our present able
and iudefutigable member lion
Binger Hermann, consequently
am led to believe that whatever of
words (they have uo argument)
that have been urged in favor of
tho nomination of a new man by
the Republican papers, is either
born in the mind of some would be
candidate, or instigated by some
mercuiral editor who In gifted only
as a place hunter.
I believe a close scrutiny of the
records would bear out the asser
tion that Air. Hermann una accom
plished more for his state, time of
service considered, than any other
congressman has for his district,
let alone a whole state. It Is to be
hoped that the Republicans will
bear in mind that this, the first
district is not so overwhelmingly
Republican as the state is when the
convention is culled together, and
that it is not possible to name
new mnn that will command ti e
respect and attention that Mr.
Hermann does, aud so sure as sonic
new aud untried man is nominated
the Democrats will name some one
of their bont and ablest men and
the result is to say the least, doubt
ful. Should Mr. Hermann decline
the nomination it would most cer
tainly appear cheeky for a South-
em Oregon man to claim the honor.
liter all, I have full faith in the
wisdom aud intelligence of tho
next Republican convention of this
district, and believe that the dele
g ttes to that convention will make
the proper nomination, unaided by
any self sacrificing and self-con
stituted candidates. Such being
