There's nothing selllsh in politics. In
Tiiekk has been a decided slump in
tlio price of wheat in the Kast, which
was forced up to nearly $2 a bushel in
tho New York and Chicago markets by
the gamblers. It is now quoted at $1.40
and will probably go lower.
It is claimed that this is the land ot
the free and the home of the brave ; yet
look at the conditions I The masses are
industrial slaves and money is in the
hands of the few. From my seat in the

The success of the Union ticket means
everything to the people retrenchment
and reform, salutary lenielation, the re
peal of vicious laws and the t-bolition of
useless commissions. It should be
elected by a majority that cannot be
counted out or its meaning mistaken.
Some newspapers claim we ought to

Tins can never be a government by
the people so long as it is run by politi

Many of our republican ' exchanges
are trying to make political capital for
their party by circulating reports that
the majority of the soldiers are republi
cans. 1 here is no baser lie ever told,
and there is no baser method employed
by a political party than in telling such
a lie. They forget, however, to tell
their readers that Dewey is a democrat.
The Salem Independent remarks : "One
of jEsop'e fables says, that a farmer was
building a fence to protect his chickens
when a fox came up to him and said :' why
waste time on that fence? Why don't
you go about your plowing and leave the
chickens to us?, We foxes understand
the Jnisiness.' That isjust what there-
publicans want the farmer to do today
with the offices, state and county. Oh,
yes; they understand it. " .
FOR SUPREME JUDGE.
Of the union refoi m candidate for su
preme judge, it has teen well said by an
exchange, "Judge Wm. M, Ramsey is a
gentleman of pcholarly attainments, a
lawyer of ability, possessing a well
trained legal mind, with a clear and vig
orous command of the English language.
He would take high rank upon the bench,
and would enrich the adjudication of our
supreme court by his decisions. The
judge is of a retiring disposition but en
joys tho.friendship and esteem of all who
know him. The citizen who castsa vote
for Judge Ramsey can assure himself
that he has done a good day's work in
bi half of the state of Oregon.
WALDO'S DEFEAT IN '86
In 188(5, when Joseph Simon was
chairman of the republican state central
committee he caused the defeat of John
B. Waldo for supremo judge by an act of
treachery. The Oregonian at the time
stated "Simony in English law is the
sale of a benefit, in Oregon politics it is
the sale of a party." It is a noteworthy
fact that T. T. Geer was the one leading
republican in the state who rushed into
print in defei ce of Mr. Simon puplish
n a long letter in the Salem Statesman.
To those who think that Mr. Goer is not
he Simon tuw candidate this fact should
be an eye opener. Then the Marion
county delegation to the recent republi
can state convention voted solidly for
the seating of the Simon delegation. And
it is notorious that the Marion
county members were but mouthpieces
for T. T. Geer. If you want a man for
governor free from all rings, thoroughly
self-reliant and an honest vote for Will
R. King of Bakercounty.
OFF TO THE SEAT OF WAR.
Oregon City Volunteers Bid Farewell
To Their Homes.
At least 3000 neonle withered at the
depot Monday evening to greet the Ore
gon City contingent of Company I, and
the other Boldiers, and wish them God
speed on their long trip to the seat of
war in tne riullipine Islands. Mead
Tost, G. A. R., the Womens' Relief
Corps, tl e Young Ladies A. Y. L. I.Cluh,
and everybody elsf was out to the de
lot in holiday attire. The crowd was
so densely packed, that many poople
were unable to get within hpeaking dis
tance ot the soldiers during their brief
stop here. When the tlrst train carry
ing the soldiers reached the depot, the
pent-up enthusiasm burst forth in patri
otic cheers, guns were tired and when
the train pulled out it left in a blase of
nlory Illuminated with red flre. Dain
tily tilled I ti nch baskets were handed to
the soldiers, aud boquets of the choicest
(lowers were fairly showered upon them.
It was an occasion long to be remem

leaving home for the last time, not
knowing what the future holds in store
for them, but were bravely willing to
risk the consequences, to defend the

departure of the Oregon City volunteers
from Camp McKinley, they tot k advan

Oregon City will have no cause to
feel ashamed of her volunteers, who
have gone to the front. They will not
flinch from duty in the hour of need.

The Young Ladies A. Y. L. I. Club are
taking an active interest in the Oregon
City volunteers, and made about forty
surgical bandages and other articles for
Company I. The club holds itself in
readiness to do anything possible for the
comfort of the soldiers, whenever their
services are needed. They prepared and
donated two boxes of delicacies to the
company Monday evening. '
When Company I passed through Or
egon City Monday evening, about $225
was handed Captain Pickens, to be
used for the volunteers in case, of an
emergency. The members of the Wil
lamette Club donated $150 of this
amount, and the remainder was raised
by Mrs. W. Carey Johnson and other".
Company I also received $100 from the
