"UNITED WE STAND"
The Bedding Daily Searchlight comes
out squarely for the union ticket in Cali
fornia, and says:
"At the time that the people's party
of Shasta county held its convention we
declined to participate in the nomina
tions of that body after it decided against
union in order that we would be free to
act, as in our judgment seemed beBt to
defeat the well laid plans of the party of
monopoly. Since that convention the
national mid-roaders have bolted the
people's party organization and' have
nominated a national ticket for 1900, in
this way attempting to destroy any pos
sible getting together of the people for
practical and effective reform. This
action on the part of the national leaders
of the ultra-radicals has brought thous.
ands of populists to a realization of the
folly of opposing union. 'The middle-of-
the reader must now choose between
the regular organization and a handful
of disaffected radicals.
We mention this merely to show that
the action of the county convention
would not be repeated aiiain if the op
portunity offered, as Shasta county
populists are not bolters, and will not
follow a few "rule or ruin" leaders out
of the party because the party differs
with them not in matter of principle ,
but in mater of nolicy only.
The motto of our national and state
organization is: "In union there is
strength." Let the people unite, and
in solid phalanx meet the onslaught of a
common enemy. This spirit largely
predominates the ranks and file, and to
give eiiective concentration we an
nounced our purpose to support a union
ticket made up of natural allies.
The Avail street press makes no dis
guise of the purpose of their party to
win the fall elections on war excitement
and to secure through a congress thus
elected the equivocal adoption of the
gold standard. The New York Herald
after lecturing congress for not passing
a currency bill "more thoroughly com
wit the United States to a single gold
standard," makes the following sug
"However, an extra session of congress
will be necessary after the 4th of next
March to deal with the new colonial
problems that are looming up, and there
is good reason to believe that the presi
dent in calling this will strongly presen
thj need of dealing also with the vital
problem of currency."
It any suppose that the silver question
is a dead issue, he can easily undeceive
himself by observing the persistent
urgency of the gold press to pass a cur
rency bill which means the gold stand
i i i i i
ru uiki Luna monopoly, tiaraly an
editorial appears In which attention is
not directed to thojnecessity of carrying
the elections next fall by the Bide issue
of war for the purpose of establishing
more firmly the rule of Wall and Lorn
bard streets in this country.
Local option in taxation has acquired
foothold in New Zealand ; und in some
counties the voters, acting upon the
local otion rights, have adopted the
single tax. It is worthy of special men
non nun una has been done by the vote
not of all the voters, but of taxpayers
alone. Hie local option law of Now
.ealand is so hedged in with irksome
conditions intended to protect the landed
interests, that tho adoption of the single
tax by the taxpayers of any country is
strong testimony in favor of its popular
lty wita Die thrifty classes. I?y this
It is required that upon the petition of
a specified proportion of the taxpayers a
poll must be taken upon the question of
taxing unimproved values to the exclu
sion of everything cleo. At that poll
only enrolled taxpayers are allowed to
vote, ami unless one-third of them do
vote the poll is invalid. Notwithstand
ing these and other restrictions, only
four polls out of 15 have been invalidated
by lai'k of the requisite one-third vote,
and at the other 11, the single tax fell
short of a mojority at only one. For
local purposes, therefore, the single tax
is in operation in at least ton districts of
Tub democratic party, the democrats
in congress and as has been repeatedly
charged the democratic press are re
sponsible for the declaration of tho war.
The American people are responsible
for the war's glory and for its triumphs.
The republican party is responsible for
the war's mismanagement, for the
leaths, the needless sorrows 'that mar
the national rejoicing.
Tho democrats in congress voted freely
the funds to carry on the fight, fiot a
note of discord in the face of the enemy
only support for the administration .
But the democrats were not concerned
in the corruption, nor connected with
the incompetence with which these funds
wer j disbursed. Nor were thje democrat8
concerned in the cruelty ttnd criminal
neglect of which soldiers hi camp have
Whoever will analyzeacts and not be
blinded by a hurrah campaign must see
that the democrats have been connected
with eyery honorable and creditable
step in the war, and with nothing that
is dishonorable or discreditable. N. Y.
Journal. . .
The republican organs and orators
told the people jast year that the Ding
ley bill made wheat worth a dollar a
bushel. The Dingley bill is still in
force. WiW they kindly tell the public
the reason' that wheat is only worth 50
cents this' year?
Affairs Noticed by
The Eugene Guard recently told
about a fat, sleek loooking Jap, who
tides up and down tbe line of tbe South
ern Pacific, and is said to secure a hand
some competency by collecting a per
centage of the wages from each Japa
nese laberer on the road. There are
three citizens of Oregon, who have about
as soft a snap as the Jap magnate the
railroad commission. They rake on
about $10,000 annually, and this money
comes not only from the Japs, but from
every citizen of Uregon who pays tax di
rectly or indirectly. They ride in pal
ace cars, and never pay a cent. In ad
dition to this they ride up and down the J
line at pleasure, and when the tram
stops at tne uregon uity depot, tney
step out on the Grant's Pass granite
platform, and gaze over across the sus
pension bridge, as though they were
monarchs ot all thev surveyed." The
members of the railroad commission
neither toil nor spin unless they spin
long yarns to hold their job, or go spin
ning over the country on railroad trains.
The complaint is heard that the state
insane asylum is tilled to overflowing,
while the convicts at the penitentiary
are not up to the maximum number.
This matter can be. easily explained
from the fact that a quite a number of
people are sent to the' asylum, who
should have been inmates of the peni
tentiary. In fact, hot a great many
years ago a man was twice sent to the
insane asylum from Clackamas county,
to prevent his conviction for certain
crimes. Another reason that the insane
asylum is filling up so fast, is that many
aged and feeble persons, who become a
burden ol care on thmr relatives, are ad-
tudged insane and sent to the asylum.
Jot many months ago an old gentle
man, feeble and helpless, and possessed
of considerable property, was sent to
the asylum, and died two months after
he reached there. And, yet, Clackamas
county has been no worse in this re
spect than many others in the state.
Many good dollars of Oregon City
money was spent in outfitting prospect
ors for the Klondike, and none of them
have yet returned with a competency,
nor is the likelihood that, but few, if
any of them will return with a sack of
nuggets. One by one, the hardy ad
venturers are returning, after undergo
ing hardships innumerable, and, while
they do not say outright that the trip
was a fruitless one, it is evident that
they are more than pleased to settle
down in Webfoot again.
The Oourikr-Heralo now far dis
tances all other papers in Clackamas
county in point of subscription list,
local and general news, a fact that ad
vertisers appreciate. Its circulation,
too, is growing rapidly.
The Olackamas county legislators
and the committee clerks spent Satur
day and Sunday at their respective
Moses was said to be in the dark
when the light went out, but it puzzles
the average legislator to know where
Brownell was when the caucuses held
their meetings Monday evening.
Thompson, too, was absent.
In addition to the Oregon O'ty people
already named who hold clerkships are
the following: A. S. Dresser is clerk
of tbe senate judiciary committee, and
E. J. Swafford is clerk of the committee
on public lands. Miss Cornelia Mc
Oown, also holds a clerkship, and C. U.
Wilson is clork of a house committee.
The house committees were not ap
pointed by the Bpeaker until la-t Fri
day, Kruse was oppointed chairman of
the committee on corporations, and,
niau, in a luemuer oi me committees on
federal relations and manufactures.
Thompson is chairman of the com
mittee on rules and joint rules, and is a
member of tho committees on statistics
and immigration, and alcoholic traffic.
Knight is a member of the committee
on roads and highways.
Senator Porter is the only member of
the Clackamas county delegation, who
has stood by and supported the caucus
nominee from the beginning. Knight
votes with the fusionists, Kruse ami
Thompson vote with the opposition,
and lirownoll the Lord hardlv 'knmv
where he is at." It is dillicult at this
lime to prognosticate who will be
elected senator, but it is evident that
they will unite on some one, rather than
permit a continued deadlock. '
The Denison-Knight contest case was
argued by the attorneys on both sides
