FRIDAY, APRIL ?, 1893,
Wi publish ft tetter from lr. C, E.
Boyuton, of Bueua Vlta, addreed to
the Ohio Farmer inteuUug to come
to Oregon. Some of our reader may
think w u poor Judgement In pub
lishing uch a letter, but our solum
lire open for the exprwwkm of honest
oplnlout aud such dwm the writer
to express. The mistake the writer
niakeabtn confining hi erittotau to
Orvitou alone. The name eondltlou
whlob make the tot of the resident of
Omron a hard oue exist H over the
Uulted State. Complaint of the
auie klud come from every agricult
ural vtate in the Vulon. The meu who
"mieexe" Uie borrower In Oregon do
the same with the borrower hi the
East. Tbe laboring men of thl tate
are compelled to nutlVr, not through
any law of the state of Oregon, but
through the law of the United Btt
whloh effect air alike, whether 1
Omron or Muiue, The remedy lie in
Uie ballot, aud until that remedy
applied the evil will exist. Oregon
stand todty head and ahouldcre lv
anyatate In the Union for natural
rmmreee which have not been devel
oped. The eame reason why money
1 scarce, and scarcity of money to the
oulv reason why meu borrow, exUU
all overtime United State. In tbi
very Issue of the West Sidk we give
the name of man who came to Ore
gon only a few year ago with but
little money, and by Industry ha
made himself Independent of want.
and he did It to Polk county, from
Polk county' rich soli, and be bor
rowed money and paid ten per rent
interest too. We can give many ilml
lar Instances. Oit'gon is all right
Cheap land la what the Ohio forme
-want. That i one of the very bout of
argument why he should cume to
Oregon. If be were to come here and
find farming laud held at ieculutive
prices, then Indeed he would have
cause to complain. The cause of all
thl unreal among the farmers
caused by monopoly aud trusts, and
not by any conditions which exwt In
Gbovkb Cleveland' course in the
presidential chair la being closely
watched. He Is evidently taking
step to secure reelection In 1890, aud
his method evidently Is to learn the
very most he can of the People' Party
and follow their best Ulcus and thus
go into the White house again a a
compromliw candidate. The demo
crat can hope to succeed only by
fusion with this popular uprising and
Cleveland knows it, so be Is building
every energy to please this balance of
power fuel ion. His appointment of
Grtwhum to his cabinet, and Robinson
to succeed Dodge as the statistician, In
tbe agricultural department, point to
a new departure In politic, Cleveland
does not talk as freely as Governor
Pennoyer but he Is very much the
same kind of nmn. Governor Pen
noycr will probably have a chance to
exchange confidences at Washington
with Grover If be poses ns a champion
of the jieople of Oregon, lu capacity of
coniiressiuan, or the United Htutcs
The Dallas papers seem to liuve a
mortal cinch on all tin; legal advertis
ing in the :county, and that Is what
pays a newspaper. Two columns of
legal mutter In the little Oliserver
brings In more money per month than
a whole page of ordinary ndverHxIng
in the West Hidk. Is It any wonder
that Dallas has three pnpers. There
must be a reason for this stale of
affairs. It all lie in the fact that the
Dallas people will not allow any ad
vertising to leave the town. Tlicy are
loyal to those papers. The papers
stand by the town aud the town stands
by them. .
We are in receipt of No. 1 Vol. 1 of
the Perrydale Patriot. It Is a six
column paper, published in Polk

If Mr. Ryan, the editor, has the fin
ancial backing necessary to keep him
on his feet for a few mouths, we see
no reason why there Is not a demand
for a paper at Perrydale, Time will
tell the story,
much complaint na come to our
ear from those locating among ut that
we are not a enviable people, and that
it lo very hard to get acquainted,
It remain with the ladle to dispel
Uie evident error. The faet la how
