rt OREGON CITY COURIER, FKiDAY, DECEMBER 25 1903, , 7 ' . i The man on the stage who does th trick of escaping from firmly tied ropes, submits t6 the bonds with a smile. He knows he can get out of the ropes that are being knotted. Put the same man in the woods and let Indian captors bind him to a tree for torture and he would struggle to the last against the bonds. When the stomach is diseayed there are bonds being woven every hour about the organs dependent on the stomach heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, etc. The folly of mankind is to passively submit to the fastening of these bonds with no effort to escape until the pain they cause arouses fear. Dr. Pierce's Golden'Medical Discovery cures diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition. It cures diseases of heart, liver, lungs. kid neys and other organs, when these dis eases, as is often the case, have their origin in the, diseased stomach. "For a long time I was suffering end was hard y able to get about," writes Mr. Andrew J. Jennings, of Thomas, Tucker Co., W. Va., Box 194. "Was bothered- with kidney trouble and my whole system was out of order j had no appetite. A friend of mine told me to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. I did so rand the first bottle restored my appetite. I took six bottles of 'Golden Medical Discovery' and tome of the 'Pleasant Pellets' and feel like a uew person.

Opposition in Party. Philadelphia Ledger. President Roosevelt has made mis takes which are grounds for legitimate opposition and attack. He has handled the neuro question with lack of discret ion. The hostile view is that he tried to gain delegates by coddling the negro ; we prefer to assnme that it wa a chiv alric, if. mistaken, idea which impelled him to open an insoluble problem in soluble by any political action. President Roosevelt in the Panama business has discarded all his ideals, has violated the principles and precedents of the republic. Preaching exalted jus tice, constantly declaring with the ut most emphasis on all occasions that the ideas of justice and morality are just as closely applicable to the conduct of Governments as tojprivate conduct, he has approved despoliation of a friendly republic an attack which, in its ele ments and results, was strictly piratical and in the attempted justification for the act has in effect cited our great need of the stolen goods, thus informing the world that our national virtue it not strong enough to resiet a very high price. Millionaire's Poor Stomach. The worn-out stomach of the over fed millionaire if often paraded in the public prints as a horrible example of the evils attendant on the possession - of great wealth. But millionaires are not the only ones who are -afflicted with bad stomachs. The proportion is far greater among the toilers. Dyspepsia and in digestion are rampant among these people, and they suffer far worse tortures than the millionaiie unless they avail themselves of a standard medicine like Green'B August Flower, which has been a favorite household remedy for all etomach troubles for over thirty five years. .

One of the most astute politicians of modern times, Benjamin Disraelli, de clared tnat "precedent embalms a prin cipal." In our own history it is unbroken pre cedent that no Vice President advanced to the Chief Magistrate's cbair has ever dominated his party or succeeded to the office by the votes of the people. Will Mr. Roosevelt be an exception? The question becomes peculiarly in teresting in view ol the facts cited in our columns yesterday by a correspond ent, wh ) pointed out that the present political situation is not unlike that before the election of 1892, when for the first time in more than a third of a century control of all branches of the Government passed in o the hands of the Democrats. An article in our columns yesterday briefly sketched the history of the four Vice Presjdents who in the past begin ning with John Tyler and ending with Oheeter A. Arthur acceded t irouith the death of the elected Chief Magis trate. The Brooklyn Eagle of last even ing takes this article as the text for a long leader, in which it says: "The Hir ld errs in regarding these i ist: neee as conclusive against Mr. Roosevelt's ambition." As a matter of fact, the Herald made no deductions whatever, but merely set out the facts. The con clusion has unconsciously been drawn from them by our amiable contemporary for itself. It BtriveB to differentiate the position of the present incumbent from that of former V'ce Presidents who ao ceded to the Chief Magistrate, and adds: "Foi better or worse, Roosevelt and Republicanism are one. There are Re publicans who wish tnat it Were not so. Wishing, however, does not alter the facts Mr. Roosevelt and fcis party are inseparable. The next President of the United States will be Theodore Roose velt or a Democrat.

Rheumatism, which does its terrible work in the muscles, joints, and tissues, is caused by uric acid which gathers in the blood. To get rid of this poisonous acid which produces the irritations, pains, agonies, inflammations, and swellings peculiar to rheumatism, Paine's Celery Compound should be used without delay. No other medicine gives such prompt', cheering, and happy results. It is the only medicine that prevents a return of the dreaded disease. Paine's Celery Compound braces the nerves, the blood is quickly cleared of all irritating poisons, tissue and muscle are built up, and the digestive organs perfectly toned. Do not treat with indifference the slightest rheumatic symptoms; the early use of Paine's Celery Compound will save you weeks and months of suffering. Mr. S. D. Conway, St. Louis, Mo., was ' permanently cured by Paine's Celery Compound after repeated fail ures with other medicines and physicians; he says: " I am 64 years of age, and have lived in St. Louis 27 years, and all this time with the exception of three years, I have served in the Engineers' Department as Inspector. Last winter I contracted rheumatism and was laid up. I tried all remedies and doctors, hut all failed until I struck Paine's Celery Compound, which has made a permanent cure in my case. I have recommended it to many, and they have used it with the same result." TOE HOME USE AND ECONOMY Diamond Dyes HalceOld Clothes LooK New Direction book nnd 45 dyed Bam pies free. DIAMOND DYES, Burlington, Vt. that "Roosevelt and Hepublicanisin are one in view ol the very many Repub licans "who wish that it were not so," and in view also of his Democratic per sonal tendencies and of the hostility he has excited in the great corporate and financial interests which dominate his party, and upon which in past campaign it has relied for 'thj sinews of war." In view of the enmities he has aroused among these powerful interests within bis party and the distrust excited in its conservative elements it would seem not at all certain that he will be nominated, although our transpontine contempor ary assumes that it Is certain in assert ing that "the next President will be Theodore Roosevelt or a Democrat." That is a suggestive phrase "or a Democrat." The resentment of in e pendent Republicans against the course of the majority in Congress during the last few 'years and the dissensions with in the party in this and other states give the Democrats brighter prospectB than they they had for many years. As the Herald's correspondent "Jackson'' yesterday pointed out, the struggle be tween the Piatt and Odell factious pre sents them with the best opportunity they have had since 1892 of carrying this state. Delaware's Republican oligarchy is rent with dissensions. In Illinois there is intense dissatisfaction with the state administration. Maryland has a k ai n parsed com pletel y i n to co n t rol of the Democrats. Rhode Island has twice elected a Democratic Govern r. In Indiana the Democrats have carried several cities held by the Republicans since the outbreak of Bryanism, and they have carried all important city elections in Connecticut, while Boston is about to re elect a Democratic Mayor, almost without opposition. In short, the Conditions are snch as to impart a peculiaY interest to the histori cal fact that no "accidental" President has ever been elected to succeed him self and to suggest that there is a prin cipal en.balmed in this unbroken prece dent.

THE STAMP1 OF TRUTH. Oregon City Residents Know it Well. There is the stamp of truth on a state ment endorsed by people we know, by our neighbors. The following ex peri, ence of a citizen is but one case of Bcores right here at home. B. Meredith, the Portland brick ma ton, contractor and builder, who lives 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 tiouble. I was bothered for years with attacks of kidney complaint, and no medicine gave me permanent relief until I procured Doan's Kidney Pills. I aa so well pleased with it.that when my wife had severe attack a short time ago. and could hardly get around to do her work, I bad her take Doan's Kidney Pills. In two or three days they Btraightened her up in fine shape. We both erdorse the claims made for Doan's Kidney Pills and have nothing but the bighettt terms of praise for eucn a valuable remedy."
