83 per cent, and that we have nearly
4000 millionaires an exported surplus

Clackamas is the banner Grange
county of Oregon. The total member
ship of the order in the Btate is hardly
3600, of which nearly 900 are within the
borders of this county. This shows
that in no part of the Webfoot state the
farmers are more wide-awake than here.
Slowly but surely the agricultural class
is coming to a realization of its vast
power, if, through organization, it make
itself capable of using that power.
The growth of the Patrons of Hus
bandry means more honesty in county,
state and national governments and
more legislation for the benefit of the
masses instead of the favored few.
Through'the Grange the isolated farmer
is brought in touch with the men of
thought, with the most progressive and
intelligent of his avocation, men whom
he implicitly trusts and on whose judg
ment he relies. The grange is in some
respects a school, moulding not alone
the character and the intellect of the
farmer, but also of his wife and child
ren, for greater usefulness to themselves
and their fellowmen.
The direct benefits that have accrued
to the farmers of the country through the
Grange are great. Measures of incalcu-
ble benefit to them have been passed by
congress and become laws because the
Grange asked for them and worked for
them. Every session of congress is at
tended by a committee of the National
Grange and in every space where the
Grange has any power a Grange lobby
looks after the interests of the farmers
during the legislative session. If the
"em bottled farmers" have accomplished
magnificent economics results, which
need no demonstration and cannot be
capitulated in a brief state, with their
present comparatively small number,
what will they not achieve when the
Patrons of Husbandry have become as
powerful in every state of the union as
they are, for example, in Michigan or
Maine? Will they not pulverize th rail
road combines and leave not a grease
spot of ship subsidy steals?
Unalloyed selfishness, if no other mo
tive, should impel every farmer to be
come a Granger. Alone he is helpless,
the football of the politicians and sharks.
These cormorants combine to rob and
defraud him, and in self-defense he
must combine with his fellows' against
them. The kicking, growling farmer
who has no use for the Grange deserves
no one's sympathy. He will not accept
the proferred helping hand of his brother
and is past redemption. His case is

Editor Courier-Herald : Monday night
a number of g o. p. met at this place for
the purpose of organizing a republican
club. His excellency, Geo. O , was not
present as anouneed but sent his regrets
by letter They had things all cut and
dried, but owing to the preience of a
goodly number of scribes and Pharisees
their plans did not materialize as they
They had a man imported from New
Era precinct, whom they proposed to
put in aa chairman, but lie was defeated
by our esteemed citizen and nominee for
justice of the peace, Charles Hanson.
This young imported aspirant for politi
cal prestige opened the meeting with an
eulogy on his master, which was, by no
means, a mean effort, all things consid
ered. President Hanson was then called to
the chair. Mayor Pirn ick was then in
troduced to the audience and he told a
number of tilings that the county court
"seen" that they were compelled to do,
etc. He told us that we have the finest
part of the county out here in the west
end, that the property here is the best
and therefore asiassed the highest and
we must expect to build roads for the
eastern part of the county. Then he
told what tine plank roads they had
been building in the eastern part of the
county, which was fine consolation for
those who know that we have mud axle
deep over in these parts. We wonder
what he tt lis the people in the eastern
part of the county.
He had a little map on which nobody
could see anything on which he showed
a tract of land, which he said belonged
to Harvey Cross. "This land" said he,
"was not assessed for years aud Harvey
has not paid taxes on it."
Dresser was then introduced, and he
began with a story about a cannon. No
body saw the poiut ol his far-fetched ap
plication of the joke, however, and the
audience failed to a pp. aud when he got
ready for it. He broke out into a great
tirade against Harvey Cross. He said
some things that we don't care to repeat
and which you would not want to print.
A mini lie r signed their names to the
roll aud were Furnished with a red but
ton. From what we can learn they will
meet a landslide on election day.
The ciiizens convention of Clackamas
county composed of delegates from all
the precincts of the county, non-partisan
in character, with a sincere and de
termined purpose to relieve the over
burdened taxpayers of the county from
the eelf'iRli domination of the most cor
rupt ring that has ever fastened itself
upon any people; and at the sunie time
to redeem the once good name of Clack
amas county from tlfw further coiitiol of
a political "boss," who has not hesi
tated upon proper consideration to bar
ter and to sell its character and reputa
tion to the highest bidder, hereby
pledge ourHclves to work unitedly to
gether for these great ends, willing to
subordinate partisans! ip to patriotism,
that justice already too long delayed
mav be meted out where due and civic
r'ghteousness may again prevail among
our people, hereby at-k the co operation
and active support of every voter in the
county without regard to previous polit
ical alhhations for aid in the coming
We further agree and publish the fol
lowing declarations and statements of
facts in regard to the financial status of
First We demand that the election
of United States senator shall be by di
rect vote of all the people, thereby re
moving as far as can be occasion for
wholesale bribery and corruption with
the endless scandals that bring disgrace
upon our present mode of selecting a
Second We are heartily in favor of
the "Initiative and Referendum" amend
ment now pending for adoption ry pop
ular vote at the coming election and rec
ommend that ur people make special
efforts that a majority vote be made in
Third We view with alarm the pres
ent financial condition of the county.
In 1893 after the extraordinary ex
penses connected with the construction
of the court house, the suspension
bridge and the Baker's Ferry brjdge,
amounting to about $80,000, the county
was in debt $57,925. It was at the next
election thereafter that the affairs of the
county were practically given over into
the hands of the present ring. Bince
then the indebtedness of the county
has been accumulating at the astonish
ing rate of over $10,000 per year and
careful officials now place the indebted
ness of the county at $1DU,UUU while
others equally sincere, fix the amount at
Fourth By comparison, we note ac
cording to the official , figures that it
costs, exclusive of roads, $3.54 per capita
to pay the running expenses of Clacka
mas county for a year. For the same
service it cost $1 60 in Washington coun
ty ; $1.61 in Marion ; $1.68 in Linn, and
$2.03 in Lane county. While the aver
age expense of the whale state is but
$2.54. The secretary of state repot ts
that if the present rate of expenditures
in this county are maintained for the
next four years our state tax will then
be .0662 instead of .0335 as at present or
nearly double the amount now paid.
We note also that while Clackamas
county is third in population, seventh
in assessed valuation, it is second in ex
penses (exclusive of roads) of all the
counties in the state, reaching the total
of $09,535.55 for the year 1901 as against
$39,921.98 for Lane, $31,304 45 for Linn,
and $44,730.49 for Marion county.
This comparison is the more striking
when we remember that the population
oi Lane is the same as Clackamas coun
ty and its assessed valuation over $1,
000,000 more while Marion county has
8,000 more population and an assessed
valuation nearly twice aa large.
Fifth We charge the reckless ex
travagance and waste of the public mon
ies of the county not only upon the
present board of county commissioners,
but with more point and directness upon
the "machine" that has for a period of
eight years not hesitated to add to and
subvert any and all funds to maintain
ita political supremacy in Clackamas
Sixth VVe strongly condemn the
practice insisted upon by the machine
of all republican road supervisors us
ing the road money apportioned to their
respective districts to carry primaries in
the interest of and t o perpetuate the rule
and power of the "boss," and we insist
that this vicious policy cease and all res
idents of the road districts be given an
equitable share of the road work irre
spective of parly.
Seventh We condemn the lack of
system and method in our road work
leading, as it does, to inevitable waste
and po )t results. We demand that a
definite, fixed plan of modern road
making be adopted by the authorities
that has for iis ultimate end and pur
pone the construction and completion of
a good road from the various market
centers to each principal district in the
county ; as a help to this end, we urge
the necessity of a non-partisan manage
ment of the entire road question and
that all supervisors be elected on merit
only. We further demand that the com
missioners' court apportion the road
money once each year amorg the sev
eral road districts, and that all expenses
be kept within the apportionment as
by law is now required to be done.
Eighth We condemn what has come
to be known as the contingent fund,
kept contrary to law, and demand that
all county expenses shall be regularly
presented to the board of county com
missioners, duly audited, and orders
drawn on the treasury therefor.
Ninth We demand that the county
printing, and the furnishing of supplies
to the court house and all other sup-
lowest respoi. Bible bidder
