Wnx not some of our iihuUm
write to this pajwr telling ns what
they see in the teutUnwy of th
times, and Btijgt some remoditw.
Why are our people OissatisfiMl.
Every conuty in Oropnt should
call ft convention ami appoint del
eiratts to meet at Salem during the
coming legislature ami discuss the
present defect ivo road laws ami
prepare a bill for submission to the
i. . . ,
THE matter of better assessment
laws will reeeivo the attention or
the coming legislation. It seems
to us sueh au evident fact that our
present law is a fare and works
great injustice, that argument
seems almost unnewssary to con
vince any one.
In the total vote of the United
States for President Cleveland hat
received, 5,5rt,!HR); Harrison, V
170,621,; Weaver, 1,025,1X10; Hid
well, 2kS,3i;. Cleveland's plurality
is 391.379. The total vote oust was
12,088,00$. A mjority of all

Tin: pressure being brought to
bear on the democratic party to
carry out its pledges to the people
comes from every party alike, dem
oeratre, republican, peoples and
prohibition. The people of this
nation are not goiug to lie duped.
They said tariff for reveuue ami
turiff for revenue must le tried.
The "landslide'' of November
8th was not a verdict against the
protective tariff but against mon
opolists. Free trade countries
have monopolies as well as we.
The superior intelligence, the in
Iwru spirit of freedom is what lias
aroused the people. When mon
opolies are crushed by law then
protection by legislation 'wllf re
turn. The party of the future is
the one that seeks to give wpial
rights to all. The republican pir
ty was a party of principles not ol
spoils, and before 180d it will have
confidence restored and will arise
to the demands of the people, ll
not, then goodbye duar old party,
another will rule in your stead.
The Wjst Side has been severe
ly censured by some for the stand il
has taken on polities. We are,
they say, becoming au "alui mii.t"
and predicting disaster when theiv
is no danger. We are said to lean
towards the Peoples party, which,
they say, is composed of discontent
ed democrats and republicans.
We notice that that party of "dis
contents" is assuming very large
proportions. The tendency of the
times favors a great addition to i!s
ranks. Labor should, and 11111.-1 ,
be better rewarded Protection
was not a panacea for all our ills;
much less tariff for revenue. Out
people are thinking deeply. Tin
w ill act as they think is right.
The party of the future is the one
that will protect labor, not against
canital. but against monopoly.
The people make the government
and the government must protect
The present uncertainty as to
what Cleveland (for it appears
Cleveland is the democratic pur y)
is going to do, will shortly he
known, for that magnetic personage
is preparing a tariff measure which
he will present to congress, and it
is to be passed by the membeis
without material amendment or
abridgement. Even in politic tin
one man, or trust system, is getting
to be the rule. We have generally
believed that our representatives
made the laws, but hereafter Cleve
land will make them and congroi
will pass them. All the brains of ti e
democratic party are in the herd
of Orover Cleveland, lie dare nt
trust his own party, for it is honcHt
enough to try and carry out lis
promises, which he is not.
