OREGON CITY, FEB. 7, 1902.
During the recent labor i troubles in
San Francisco the Willamette Pulp &
Paper Company of this city was per
mitted to handle all its freight without
molestation. The company had a special
permit issued because it had always been
fair to organized labor.
Priycr Henry, of Germany, the kai
ser's brother, is democratic enough to
receive a hearty and jovial welcome
when he visits our shores nest month.
Being as "Englishy" in his manner and
speech as any cosmopolitan Britisher,
he cannot fail to feel thoroughly at home
in the United States.
A contract is to be let for a concrete
pier at the west n ! f the new bridge

commissioneri of Clackamas are brainy
men. Pi:csilly Bome Oregon City pet
will get the contract at a low () figure.
Oanby Correspondent of Aurora Bore-alis.
Tub Piosyerity, of which we haye
heard so much lately, has one very ieri
ous charge to answer. That is the in
crease in the employment of child labor,
in some states as Jgreat as 39 per cent.
When we think of all that this statement
implies it is hardly leas than a horror,
and proHperity built on such a founda
tion carries the seeds of its own destruc
tion. A lie never escapes detection.
Probably Mr.Shaw owes his elevation
to the position of secretary of the treas
ury to his popularity among the canaille,
to which he pandered during his two
years as governor ot Iowa by releasing
nenrly 500 of that class of republican
voters from the penitentiary. The ex
governor evidently has about as much
respect for law and justice as a Robes
pierre or a Marat. ,
Til k inter-st ite commerce commiBsion
admits that the railroads which tap the
centers of trade of the East and the great
packers have in collusion broken the
laws, in order to accumulate vast profits,
with the impunity of the veriest high
waymen. Have ' patience: they are
manufacturing criminals, anarchist.
The seed of wickedness which they sow
will produce a harvest. The more is the
"Within the last fifty years," said Or;
15. H Hoyt, former member of the De
troit school board, "the number of in
sane people and fooli has increased 300
per cent, according to statistics, Three
hundred per cent 1 Do you know what
thai means? It means that if the pres
ent alarming rale of increase continues,
the entire population of this country
within 200 years will have gone insane
or become foolish, and that what we
call Civilization is far from being what
e pretend it is.
Clackamas, according to the Oregon
City Courier-Herald, is over $200,000 in
debt. This is a good campaign cry, but
it comes contemporaneously with the
arrival of hundreds of homeseekers, who
wiM undoubtedly keep on until they
cross the line into Marion, a county out
of debt. Our neighboring county has
been cursed with too much politics.
You are right, Hro. Gill. We have
more politics than business seiiBe in our
county, and until wo elect a county
ticket based on economy we are continu
ally getting in a worse fix. Our inter
est account alone amount to 2," per
cent of the tot l expenses of Marion
county. Our tax levyjis only 4 'J cents
on the dollar Hmt by another venr or
two we expect to increase it to 5 or (i
cents. Clackamas county will bo bur
dened for two years more with the pres
ent county board unless it is legislated
out o! cilice by the next legislature.
Every candidate on the county ticket at
the coming election should be pledged
to a reduction in the expenses of t'.if of
tloe he seeks.
"By th " ' '
PROTECTING ITS BENEFACTOR.
The Enterprise will no doubt under
take to prove that the county debt of
Clackamas county is but $140,000 or
$150,000. Of course it will claim that the
taxes due should be deducted from the
county debt. It is true that when the
tax is collected the debt will be some
less but as soon as taxes are all in the
debt will be as much as ever, if not
more. It is no use to garole figures to
shield the county authorities. The
Courier-Herald is as ashamed of the debt
as anyone but sees no object in cover
ing up the facts for political purposes.
The Enterprise goes on and says:
There is considerable comment on
the tax levy of this county. It is high,
higher than any one wishes it was, but
the question is how to cut it down
About one-fourth of the levy is the road
tax and at eight mills it is not enough
to satisfy the demands made on the board
for help on the roads. The good work
done on the roads Is apparent to the
farmers and instead of wanMngless they
want more money for the roads. Many
counties in the state have made a levy
of only one or two milk.
Don't know how to cut it down I It
the Enterprise had its way it would
make it still larger by getting a greater
pull at the public teat. If the voters
are satisfied to pay the high tax rate to
spend on roads the writer has nothing
to say, but he don't believe the voters
want t' h county to run behind to do so.
The writer is not opposed to building
roads h nd bridges and because he men
tioned the Oanby bridge last week is no
reason he does not think the bridge is a
good and needed improvement. What
he wanted to impress on the people was
the fact that the county money was
spent to pay politician debts. We haye
a good county and if the taxes were less
we would get many a new resident that
now goes to adjoining counties.
THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES.
The signs are multiplying all around
the political horizon that indicate a
coining democratic revival, a renewal of
democratic faith, confidence and union
of eirort to convert a great majority of
the people to sound principles and juit
The gouging and crowding by some
of the brethren in congress is insignifi
cant. They scent the coming victory
and are already eager to get front places
in the procession. They are anxious to
be where they can holler first: "I told
you so!' They are furnishing signs of
promise rather than of serious discords.
That there is a sanity in their seeming
contusion is evidenced by their refusal
to forecast issues and assume to predi
cate a national platform for the party in
advance of the convention of 19l'4.
The republican party's predicament
is not a happy one. They have a presi
dent on their hands. They have never
before had one who was so determined
to spell liis title with capital letters. He
is himself the x in their political equa
tionthe unknown quantity whose value
as a party-keeper and leader is yet to be
worked out. They are not in beautiful
agreement upon pending and urgent
policies, They have inherited the re
ciprocity proposition, which their lead
era wish to strangle, and have had
thrust upon them a Cuban question
which they had hoped to avoid. The
Philippine policy is a two-edged sword
which they are compelled to handle
with the greatest care. And there are
other matters, such as the isthmian ca
mil. the surplus, the war taxes and the
ship subsidy bill, that are powerfully
perplexing to men who have to face the
people this coming fall.
The democrats, however, have every
reason to be hopeful. They have no more
to do at present than to watch every
move by their opponents, hang on the!.
Hanks, expose, their errors, their inva
sions of the constitution, their evasions
of the fundamental principles of free
government, their extravagances with
the people's money and their subsorvi
I once to capital and Incorporations, trusts
and monopolies. Then dropping out of
I the programme all dead issues and past
differences, they can come together on
principles that nodenocratcan gainsay,
that the common faith of the country
can accept without serious argument
and that a majority of patriotic Ameri
cans will support in ordtr that "a gov
ernment of the people, by the people and
for the people shall not perish from the
earth "Atlanta Constitution.
This paper has just received a letter
from a prominent democrat of southern
part of the county, saying, "Let us have
a straight democratic ticket; not throw
away principle for one or two offices.
I wish you success in showing up that
county court ; you are on the right road."
The Courier-Herald would be pleased to
give every voter of Clackamas county
who believes in reform an opportunity to
express himself on the subject.
Hon. George C. Chamberlain, of Port
land, will no doubv be nominated for
governor on the democratic ticket and
will give Governor Geer a good run for
his money, and it wouldn't surprise us a
bit if he beat him, too.
A meeting of the democratic state cen
tral committee was held in Portlamd last
week and the consensus of opinion was
that a straight democratic ticket ba put
up in the state.
The chances for Deputy Sheriff Jack
to be the next assessor of Clackamas
county are first-class He prefers that
olfice to that of sheriff, and he can do
more good there also for the taxpayers.
Dr. J W. Powell, of Oregon City, is
spoken of in connection with the oppo
sition legislative ticket. He would be a
good man for th place.
It seems to be hard for democratic
and reform papers to live. In our
neighboring county, Marion, the Inde
pendent of Salem, has turned republican.
The Journal of Salem, which supported
Bryan and silver, has been back into
the fold for some time. This leaves
Salem without a reform or democratic
The Socialsts will hold a state conven
tion in Portland March 19. The con
gressional district convention will be
held the following day at Oregon City.
