Tiik democratic county primaries will
lie held in the Boveral precincts of this
county on Saturday of this week. The
populists will hold theirs on Friday and
tho republicans on Saturday. The
democratic and populist conventions will
be bold on Monday, April 4th, and the
republican on Wednesday, the Oth.
An increase of tho standing army is
what the plutocrats have been seeking
for many years. Under cover of threat
ened war with Spain they are attempt
ing to accomplish their object. We
have no need for a large standing army,
but we do have need for a great navy,
lit't tho people lie on their guard and
not bo caught napping while tho money
power is throwing around itself protec
tion, through the national treasury, from
tho wruth of those- they are plundering.
Tub state conventions of tho populists,
silver republicans and democrats were
held iuPortland lust week and nominated
the ticket, which appears at head of this
column, and united upon a platform,
which was unanimously adopted. Tho
best of feeling prevailed among the re
form forces and the only incident that
occured was the walking out of 12 dele
gates of the populist party, who met as
middle-in-the-roadera and put up a tick
et. With now and then an exception
the populists, silver republicans and
democrats will support the union ticket.
CLACKAMAS COUNTY HONORED.
We are glad to know that Clackamas
county has been recognized on the union
state ticket. Chas. A. Fitch, of this
city, who has received the nomination
for state printer, is eminently fitted for
ttie position, being an able, aggressive
editor and a practical printer.
Mr. Fitch is about 36 years of age.
He was formerly a republican but joined
the Farmers' Alliance movement at its
inception and established the first Al
liance paper in Western Kansas. He
entered the fight with his paper for the
first Independent Alliance ticket in
Sherman county, Kansas, and was a
large factor in securing the election of
every nominee on the ticket.
He was a delegate to the Cincinnatti
conference and the St. Louis conference
the year following, which crystallised
the reform elements and formulated the
platform which was adopted, almost
word for word, by the people's party at
He moved to Oregon in '92 and estab
lished the Union county Farmer at La
Grande. In the depression of '93 and 4
he failed in business and turned over
his plan and business to his creditors
and moved to Portland and began work
on the Leader by the week.
He took charge of the Oregon City
Herald under lease in November, 1895,
and prosecuted a splendid campaign the
following spring for the people's party
county ticket, which resulted in a victory
for every man on the ticket.
He is a man who has the courage of
his convictions and through extreme
adversity as well as prosperity has done
faithful and valiant service for the cause
of reform ever since he identified him
self with it.
He is the friend of labor ; has always
defended organized labor, and if elected,
the state printers' office will be a union
oflice during his term. He was twice
elected president of the Portland Labor
council during his residence in Portland
and was appointed by the Knights of
Labor and tne labor council to at'end
the legislature of '95 in the interests of
His election will bo a triumph for
organized labor and tlie principles
enunciated in the union platform.
The republican party can no longer
deceive voters witli its promises of
bimetallism. It stands for the gold
standard, retirement of greenbacks
destruction of silver and more power to
the banks. Salein Journal, lie p.
And now Japan is having a gold stand
ard panic. One of the leading Japanese
papers says, "The financial panic which
occured in Osaka is only the first of the
disasters that will follow tho adoption by
Japan of the gold standtud.
The malady of the Semi Weakly
Blackmailer has broken out afresh and
thin week it attacks L. L. Porter in its
mad frenzy. Mr. Bain hns it worse than
the city has the measles all over. Such
journalism, if it can be called such,
should be prohibited by law.
The seating of tho gold democrat
Josiah Patterson, by the aid of repub.
lican votes of tho house of represents
fives shows how close together are the
goldites in their fight against true demo
cracy. If the bimetallists would act to
gether in behalf of silver as tho goldites
do in favor of gold, there would bo no
dillicully in breaking the backbone of
gold monopoly. i
C. T. HowAitn, of Mnlino, is promin
ently mentioned in connection with the
republican nomination for county com
missioner. If nominated and elected he
would no doubt do his best toward get
ing good wagon roads to tho Molalla
country via. Mulino. Tho imnrovimi of
the road is being inado an issue by his
republican friends, who hope to see him
nominated for that position.
Ir it is true that Speakor lieod has
'lost control of the house." then the
situation has already resulted in a victory
for liberty elsewhere than on Cuban
soil. Article 1, section 1, of the consti
tution says that "all legislative powers
herein granted shall be vested in a con-
gressof the United States, which shall
consist of a senate and a house of repre
sentatives." The recent rule has been
to have congress consist of a senate nn,l
The union of forces against the enemv
of reform, tho republican party, iu Ore

that does not place it on tho defensive.
The union ticket can only bo defeated
by a campaign management that shall
put it upon tho defensive. Nothing but
an open, above board, honest, straight
orward campaign, absolutely free from
tho corrupt methods of the past, will
