Giordano Bntmo, the name of the
daring Italian thinker who was cooked

Tub Umatilla republican county ticket
and convention were ruled by a former
democrat in much the same manner as
Drownell rules Clackamas, The repub

than they did here, seeming to pre

Vkrv recently an English company
purchased 2,000,000 tons of coal in Ala
ia'iia, paying therefor 50 cents per ton
At the mouth of the pit, and the cost per
ton for carrying the same to tidewater
will be less than $1. Talk about the
products of cheap foreign labor swamp
ing this country! How long will it be
lioforo the countries of Europe will have
to nut on a protective tariff to save them
tfrom being swamped with the products
of Am "rican cheap labor?
Tim report of the New York buroau of
flabor statistics shows that during the
Vast three years a period of "prospei
fity" over 20 per cent of the working
poople In that state have been without
employment. If 'we place the popula
tion of the state at about 7,000,000,
the number of men continually out of
work for three years is 303,000. Rather
liieor prosperity, isn't it? This fact
shows how the workingman suffers iu
the north Atlantic states.
An address has been issue 1 Blgned by
the representatives of 84 English labor
unions denouncing the war against the
Transvaal on the ground that it is being
waged for the nolo purpose of enabling a
Sew millionaires, Rhodes, Earl Grey et
l to exploit the gold and diamond
ninea of South Africa with cheap "nig
ger" labor that of the Kaffirs, by Im
pounding them la herds like convicts.
Among the signers of the address are
snambors of parliament and other
tnen of prominence. At Johannesburg
the Boer laws were su :h that the Kaf
fir could not be worked to death at star
vation wage, This was a thorn in the
uside of the Brtish exploiter.
Thomas U. Tomgub was renominated
for a third term by the republican con
igneeiional convention at McMinnville on
Tuesday on the first ballot, receiving 92
votes. Gatch received 28, Brownell 17,
Hewitt 14, Carter 11, scattering 1. J, B.
David, ol Yamhill, and George A. Steel,
of Cluck a mas, were elected delegates to
the Philadelphia convention. George
G. Brownell was made committeeman
for Clackamas. This nomination is a
practical Indorsement of the administra
tion and Tongue's vote for the Puerto
IP.lco bill and a slap at the Oregonlan
;and its free trade ideas. In the conven
tion were 17 federal office holders ai
delegates. No wonder Tongue got the
nomination. Without these 17 he would
mot have had a majority. Brownell did
Tory welli considering the fact that he
wat ft new candidate, and it shows thai
where he is known be rules, despite the
f pposition of hit political enemies. Even
his enemies here wished bis nomination,
so he would get out of the way arrd
leave Clackamas to them. A prominent
anti-Brownell republican of this county
bt 2 to 1 lhat Brownell would not get
four votes besides his own county dele
gation, and won. Gatch and Brownell
a Ivocated free trade in Puerto Rico.
Our German fellow citizens who have
been so loyal to the republican party
while Its advocates denounced the demo
crats for favoring English free trade,
will njw have time for a little sober re
flection. The republicans having de
ceived them with thir protective falla
cies until they have secured the English
financial system, they are now moving
cautiously towatd the goal of free trade,
while at the same time endeavoring to
teach our patriotic German ,.nd Irish
American voters the many advantages
which would accrue through an alliance
with Great Britain, t j the end that the
civilizing influences of the British em
pire may extend over the republics of
South Africa and justice be established
among all classes of their citizens. These
Kruger-Steyn olegarchies have been a
source of great annoyance to that prq
found English statesman, Cecil Rhodes,
for many years, and that characteristic
cabli gram from Lord Robert3 that (by
the aid of Almighty God and superb
British soldiery) a great victory had
been gained for civilization In the dark
continent, should Bend a thrill of joy
through the heart of every German on
this side of the Atlantic. The republi
can party is par excellence the party of
freedom, and the only reason that the
present administration favors Great
Britain is the fact that those Dutch
burgers have not the faculty to under
stand the elementary principles of free
dom, though they are fighting for it to
the death.

Tne Scientific American says: "Mod
ern machinery has po greatly enlarged
the productive power of the workman
that it becomes possible to pay him
wages far in advance of those earned by
his hand-labor predecessor, and the
same labor-saving devices, while raising
liis wage, have increased its purchasing
power by lowering the cost of food and
clothing and many of the luxuries of
lifo. Hence, the automatic m idline is
not, as the agitator will even yet suggest,
the enemy of labor, but is in every re
spect its best fiieud." In saying that
the machine la labor's best friend, the
paper bogs the question. The "agita
tor" does not claim that the machine is
his enemy, but his com plaint is that
the capitalist, who obtained his capital
by floecing labor, abwrba the proiit ob
tained through the machine operated
by the agiUtor. If the capitalist's profits
were moderate, the agitator would not
exiHt, for In that case he. would receive
that share of the profits which is due
him. This Is the bone of contention
between capital and labor, and accounts
for tho unrest pervading the toiling
The degree ot success of the citizens'
ticket will depend on the efforts of the
citizens who have made it. If each
democrat or populist considers himself
to be a committee of one, in duty bound
to do what he can, honestly, to win
votes, it is a dead certainly that the
ticket will come nearer being victorious
than if each remains in his own shell,
doing little beyond casting his particu
lar vote.
There are scores of republican voters
in the county, upright and well meaniug
who are not familiar with the merits or
demerits ot the two opposing ticketr.
Many have been so blinded by the dust
that political trickster, Brownell, has
cast into their eyes, that they cannot
recover until after the elections this year,
when, seeing his deceit, they will curse
him. But letting the blind lead the
blind.there la a host of wide-a-wake repub
licans who do not worship at the shrine
ot the tiu god from Kansas. These men
care more tor principle than pelt. They
will listen to reason and argument, and
it we can show them convincingly the
corruptive principles of the republican
party on the one band, and the forceful
efforts ot the reform party on the other,
they will vote against the republican
party in June and November. Campaign
work must be done. We must offs et,
as much as we can, the covert machina-
tions of Brownell and his tools, and tie
bedeviling influence of the republican
sack. It should not le forgotlen for an
instant that no trick is too contempti
ble for the managers of the republican
county cam paigrf. Let us not alone be
upright but on our guard.
In America," the land of promise
heretofore the inspiration of every heait
longing for liberty and opportunity
capitalism and commercialism are tri
umphant. M ith unbounded natural re
sources, with a prodiglcus woalth of food,
fuel and of all that humanity needs,
nevertheless Ihcusands of he workers
perish annually from sheer want, sur
rounded with the wealth which they
helpi-d to bring forth. Tens of thous
ands awake every morning hungry and
penniless, while tens of thousands be
sides shiver in the cold for the want of
clothing or fuel, and the vast majority
of those martyrs are not dissolute or dis
sipated either.
America now has a surplus of labor,
and wilh the white man, the black man,
the yellow man and the machine pitted
against each olher, the condition of the
workers is deplorable. The capitalists
and mammonists thrive and pile mil
lions on top of millions.' Their hirelings,
the press, the pulpit and the politicians,
are ever ready to defend them, and woe
be unto the man who dares to question
the righteousness of the mammonists,
As an example, Mr. Rockefuller recently
donated a considerable sum of money
to the church in a town in the oil region
of Pennsylvania, and the pastor of the
church remarked that although the
money might have come to the donor by
dishonesty, still, the church being the
medium through which the Lord works
to uplift humanity, he could Bee no ob
jection to receiving the money. Mr.
Rockefeller heard of this, and straight
way had the pastor dismissed.
No where in the world is capital so
arrogant or the workers so hopelessly
helpless as in the United States. Com
mercialism has reigned undisputed for a
little less than half a century, and we
see on every hand the fruits it has
brought forth. Every, unemployid
man, every famished woman or child
and every crippled worker that you meet
is the direct fruit of this abominable
barter and trade supremacy. On the
face of each of its millions of victims
seem written these words: "Capitalism
and commercialism made me thus and
coined money." Where will it all end?
San Francisco CoaBt Seamen's Jour
nal. To the Man That Was Pinched.
Editor Courier-Herald :
I see a letter in your last issue signed
by George L Story, a two-by-four law
yer of Oregon City, accusing me of be
ing a treacherous cuss, etc.
Now, if you will allow me space, I
would like to tell my friends the facts in
the case.
I met Mr. Story a day or two before
the republican county convention and
he asked me if I could place his name
before the convention for the office of
county clerk. I answered "Yes, I can,
but had rather not. It would be better
for you, any way, to get some one who
could and would make a neat little
speech and give you a good sen .off."
He said "I don't know who to get." My
answer was, "Oh, you can find plenty
to do that." I think this is almost the
exact language that was used.
He never opened his chops to me
about it on the day of the convention,
and I supposed, as any sane man would,
that he had found another man.
In conclusion, let me say that since
reading his letter I am very glad he did
not get the nomination, for I think both
parties prefer to have a man of common
sense for that office.

Eosolved, That we believe in returning to tho.
