It seems as though the cold, frosty
weather of the paat few da s has diB.
appeared, and we are looking for a gen

Those having cattle on the range are
now trying to round them up. There
are a few cattle in the mountains yet
that belong to some of our stockmen,
though it is not unusual for cattle to
live through tbe winter away back in
the mountain;', .though they would nit
be No. 1 beef when spring comes.

Is there any cause or need of the So
cialist party in the United States?
1 nave tried as hard aa any ona could
with my limited ability to believe there
was not, but, the more thought I irive
the question tha more convinced of the
need of such a party. One need not
read the Socialist literature to become
convinced of this fact. All you need is
the Socialist demands. Then read the
Republican and Democratic papers and
ask yourself what remedy they propose
to stop the robbery in every department,
national, state and municipal. Here let
me call your attention to an editorial in
tbe daily Oregonian of December the
9th, 1903. Then take the St. Louis
Democrats, aldermen, and the Ueuten
ant-governor, the wholesale bribery of
the council in Sigonia, Mich., Oregonian
of Dec. 8; Bronaugb's attack on the
mayor and city council of Portland, tbe
leader in Dec. 12 Oregonian, headed

Courier on the Clackamas county offi
cials. You point with pride to Judge
White's record twenty years ago in
Clackamaa county. Let me whisper it,
your ear, Mr. Editor, the Democrat
party is not the same aa t renty years
ago, no more so than the Republican
party. Conditions have changed. Cor
ruption is rampant throughout the land.
' There must be a cause tor this corrup
tion. What is it the Good Book tells us?
"Seek and the truth shall be found;
knock, and etc." Will you or some other
good brother applv this rule and give us
the cause, do you dare do it? Is it the
competitive system or ia it the lack of
more competitive industries. If anyone
should think this worth an answer and
he be a Democrat, be sure to point with
pride to St. Louis, Tammany ball and
tbe Democrat Alderman of Sagana,
Mich. ; and if a Republican, also point
witn pnoe to the r. U. frauds, land

THE STAMP OF TRUTH.
Oregon City Residents Know it Well.
There ia the stamp of truth on a state
ment endorsed by people we know, by
our neighbors. The following experi

right here at home.
B. Meredith, tbe Portland brick rna
son, contractor and builder, who Uvea at
561 21st street, says: ''Doan's Kidney
Pills is one of the best remedies I ver
used and I cheerfully recommend t em
to anyone suffering with kidney trouble.
I was bothered for years with attacks of
kidney complaint, and no medicine gave
me permanent relief nntil I procured
Doan's Kidney Pills. I aa so well
pleased with itthat when my wife had a
severe attack a short time ago and could
hardly get around to do her work, I had
ber take Doan's Kidney Fills. In two
or three days they straightened ber up
in fine ahape. We both endorse the
claims made for Doan's Kidney Pills
and have nothing bnt the highest terms
of praise for aucn a valuable remedy."
