"CATOR DESERTS POPULISM."
Under the above caption last week's
Enterprise published extensive extracts
from a letter written by Thos. V. Cator,
the erstwhile populist leader in Cali
fornia, to the San Francisco Call on the
29th of last month. Mr. Cator is well
known to Oregon reformers, as he as
sisted us in the campaign of 1896,
and therefore his apostasy is of local in
The ostensible reason why he has re
turned to his first love, the republican
party, is because the people's party has
drawn near the democracy, which Mr.
Cator now pretends is not in accord wiih
the reform movement, yet he was one
of the strongest supporters of Bryan's
nomination at the 8t. Louis convention
of the people's party, because there was
an affinity between the Chicago demo
cratic platform and the fit. Louis popu
No one denies that the republican
party is the party that handles the cor
ruption fund of monopoly-no one denies
that tho fundamental principles of
"equal rights to all and special privi
leges to none" are sot at naught by thh
parly of plutocracy no one ditnies that
tho gi eat mass of American people are
staggering under legislative wrongs
heaped upon them by the power behind
the republican throne, and humanity is
crying for the success of a political or
ganization that will stand in eternal
negation to these obvious wrongs.
Leaving a party name when such re
tirement means the retention of the
principles advocated by the individual
is no disgrace. Leaving a party when
one is convinced that his party dees not
dufsiio to see the principles it advocates,
catried out when that party stoop to'
conquer by deceiving tbsi-mass -B, is no
disgrace It is, in fact, evidence of in
dependent manhood and citizenship,
the bulwaik and hope of our nation ami
democratic institutions. But Mr. Cator
says he was a republican. It is evident
then that he left the lepuhlican party
because that organization was deceiving
tho masses pretending to enact legis
lation in its Interests when in fact it was
legislating in the inteieets of the money
power, the despoileri of industry. The
republican party has not changed its
tactics, it has instead openlv espoused
the cause of mammon and has thrown
all pretense to the four winds. The
logical conclusion to be reached, there
fore, as leg.mis Mr. Oator's apostasy is
that he did not know why ho left the
republican party, he did not know why
lie supported Bryan's nomination in '96,
lie did not know why he supported a
middle-of-the-road policy in the recent
-election, and it is doubtful it he has a
more valid reason than, "they will give
me anything I want" for renewing his
a'legiance to a party that he left at a
time when it at least made pretence of
loyalty to the interest of the great cam
uion people. Mr. Cator' 8 haughty as
sumption in answering the self pro
pounded questions, "whether I in
tended to take steps to reorganize the
party," is far fetched. Did Cator or
ganize the people's party? Was he one
-of its organizers? The people's party
-was a cryatalizatlon of principles, and
Cator, like others, was merely a unit ,
and not by any means the whole thing.
The principles enunciated by the peo
ple' party are to-day accepted by at
least our times the number that rallied
to their support four years ago, and a
unification of the forces to-day holding
those views, will arouse an enthusiasm
that will overcome the potency
of the corruption fund of plutocracy and
its political millions
That Cator should in the same article
in which he publishes his political i!c
genoracy to the world, stand forth as
tho advocate of the gold standard, of
the national banking system founded
upon the eternal bondage of the nation,
of the retirement of green hack and of
the advantages of concentrated capital
and trusts? But how weak, how senile
is the language he has chosen to justify
himself before the public.

maining disciples of the Great Reformer

followed his dastardly lead (incidenta.ly
Benedict Arnold died a self-despised
exile, despised by all mankind) but
the causa of our forefathers, was
won. The fact that Cator hua pub

Thos. V. Catob of California, the
patron saint of the middle-of-the-road
populists of Southern Oregon, has an
nounced that he will be a republican
hereafter. This is not surprising, in
the light of the developments of the po
litical campaign of 1898. This class of
populists lent valuable, assistance to the
republican party everywhere, and al
ways will. J bey should lose no time in
