OREGON CITY COURIER, FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1904
W. W. Myers
Takes a Crack at Mr. Nelson
and Cther People.
He Believes That All Men Are Honest
But Will Steal a little at
The following letter from W.W.Myers,
the Socialist leader of Clackamas county,
finds its way to our desk and we publish
it ior what it is worth. Mr. Myers has
a cousiderable following and there are a
good many Socialist in the county who
believe in his doctrine?. While the
"Courier" does not emlorte all that the
gentleman says we believe be is right
in some respects and if lie will join
bauds with the Democrats next BUtn
mer we will turn me ra caU out.
"Mr. Nelson assumes that ihe Repub
licans are rascals and the administra
tion is very corrupt He failtd to give
us :ne reason and ci'e the cause now.
I don't think the Republicans are more
con not than the Democrats or the Demo
crate are more corrupt than the Social
ist. 1 know some Republicans that are
very bad men and have seen Democrats
that were not angels, also lime, seen
Socialists who did not have wing.
There must be a cause. Tliij is the
trutri we must seek now. In your next
pleahe give us "your idea of the cause.
Next you speak of the fundamental
principles of Democracy. This we will
cot object . to because the Socialists
claim to be the only party that is tryinst
to carry theBe principle': l.to efftct. Now
as to the policies of the Democratic
party. Do you claim thev are in keep,
ing with the principles? If so, you can
point with pride to st. LouiB, Saginaw,
Michigan. Tammany Hall, Child Labor in
the Smith and many other places too
OUhierous to uieuwivu. vuco uiuie i.
will mention after adopting a platform
dec-1; rim; for free coinage of silver elect
ing president and both branches of the
ley: ve department. Did they carry
it on' ? v i'l you answer? Next ynu say
thai Socialist deman !s. We surrender
our individuality. Let's see, I suppose
you mean we restrict the individual to
do c nam things be has a right to do
uoi i i this capiiative system. What are
Fi'hl.we demand that the labor or

exploiter, usury, rrut and profit.
1 uiUHt say that the article in the
Courier on the parcel post does not al
together agree with with you. Democ
racy, wherein it says when public .wel
fare conflicts with private interest. The
latter has, and always will have to give
away. This comes very near our de

going to draw the dead line on individ

not only cures La Grippe Coughs, and prevents Pneumonia, but strengthens the Lungs so they
will not be susceptible to the development of serious lung troubles. Do not take chances with
some unknown preparation that may contain some harmful drug when FOLEY'S HONEY AND
TAR costs you no more and is safe and sure. Contains no opiates.
I had a bad case of La Grippe about ten years ago which left my Lungs G. VACHER, 157 Osgood St., Chicago, says: "My wife had 1 very
so weak that I have been troubled more or less every winter since until I used severe case of La Grippe, and it left her with a very bad cough. She tried
FOLEY'S HONEY AND TAR, which cured me completely and my Lungs , bottle of FOLEY'S HONEY AND TAR and it gave immediate relief."

Among Republicans that Roosevelt
Can Not be Elected President.
The adherents of President Roosevelt
are takin great comfort to themselves
from the ffict that there is no candidate
openly in the field against him. This is
intruih a more dangerous condition
thau if the Republican opposition to
Roosevelt were united upon a known
candidate whose strength coal J be rea
sonably estimated. It is the unexpected
that frequently happens in the best re
gulated national conventions. Garfield
was not a candidate for President in
1880, arid yet be carried off the prize
from b th Urant and tiiauio rout arm
Pierce were hardly dreamed of as Demo
cratic candidates ior the Presidency un.
til they were nominated. The adher
ents of Rooeevelt are Hghtii'g in the
dark against an invisi le but portentous
five in the arowiou conviction of ihe Re.
publicans of the country that the hero of
f anama can never ne eiecteo rresiuent.
Bv the meeting of the Republican
National Convention events in their
rapid progress may have this convic
tion so formidable that nothing will re
main but to uivw it embodiment in the
choice ol a candidate, whether he be
Hanna, Fairbanks or Spooner. From
all appearances Spooner's would be a
name to conjure with in the next Re
publican National Convention.
Of tbe Republicans in New York State
New York Evening Post.
Extracting sunshine from cucumbers
is easier than extracting comfort for the
Republicans from the New York State
vote of last November. The State Com
mittee, however, is equal to the task.
Taking the votes for Assemblymen out
hide of Greater New 1'ork, and the vote
for Mayor in this metropolitan district,
it Amis a plurality of 2ti 547, and con
eludes, "The showing is flattering to
Republicans pros', ects next year." The
flattery lies iu assuming that "up-state
counties can be relied upon, it is believ
ed, to increase materially tbe majorities
whii b they gave last November." Ex
actly who holds this pleasing belief is
not revealed: certainly not the members
of the committee ".certainly not the Trib
une, which displays the statement.
These eminent political authorities know
that through the the ap.stale vote will
lie heavier, tne Democrats are more
than likely to beat it by swinging into
line thouaands of tiieir party who have
been supporting fusion here In brief,
the figure! compiled by the Republican
committee are prima facie evidence that
the situation in this state is desperate.
To overcome thesu heavy odds the Re
publicans are bnsy quarieliug over the
leadership and the distribution of pat
ronage. Plaving chess when the house
is on lire is wisdom compared with Buch
Mr John II. Cullom, editor of tbe
Gailand, Texas, News, has written a let
to i of congratulations to the manufac
turers of 'Chamberlain'! Cough Remedy
as follows : "Sixteen years ago when our
first child was a baby be was euoject to
croupy Bpells ana we would be very un
easy about him . We bejran using Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy, in 1886, and
finding it such a reliable remedy for
colds and croup, we have never been
without it in the house since that time.
Wu have five children and have giveu it
lo all of them with good results. One
goo.i feature of this reme.ly is that it is
not disagreeable to lake and our babies
really like it. Another is that it is not
dangerous, and there is no tisk from
giving an overdose. I congratulate you
upon the bucccbs of your remeily." fcir
