The democrats and the populists have re
solved to fuse in Oregon. Thi move sur
prises no one. It is the policy of the demo
crats to defeat republicans by any means at
their command and if they can obtain any
advantage by withdrawing their own candi
dates and voting for others they will do so
every time, lty endorsing a people a party
man for presidential elector in Oregon they
think they can deprive Harrison of one rote
at least. It remains to be seen whether this
dodge snail be successful.
In Oregon the people's party is on record
as beiiift in harmony with the republicans I
on the tanB issue. But here is what the
democratic organ, the Portland Telegram
lias to say on the question
As has beea said in these Interviews, there is
do difference between the democrat and the j
people's party on the tart If question. They sre
thoroughly in accord on the proposition to re
duce the wartsie.to.pe.ee bail.. Mr. Pierce,
the new electoral candidate, is representative
of both parties on this question. Hence there
is no sacrifice of principle on the part of either
a democrat or s populist Id voting for Pierce.
The democrats can gain nothing directly
by endorsing a populist man. Their hope
is that they may prevent Harrison's getting j
the full Oregon vote in the electoral college
by means of a trick. It is in every sense
dishonest and it will probably be recognized
as such by the best element of the parties
concerned in the jugglery. It shows that
there is a secret understanding between the
leaders of the democratic and people's par
ties. Taxes and Indebtedness.
The people north of the Clackamas who
are advocating annexation to Multnomah
county lose sight of the relative conditions
of the two counties financially. It should
be remembered that there was a strong
movement toward consolidating the county j
and city in the last session of the legisla
ture when Portland's boundaries were
changed. The sentiment still exists and
there is every reason to supKse that it will
come up again and will finally carry.
Portland and Multnomah county together
already have an indebtedness that may be
stated in round numbers at between $fi,0OQ,
CO) and $7,010,000. The indebtedness of
Clackamas county is wittdn fflO.OQO. If the
people w ould work to get authority to issue
even $100,000 or bonds and expend the
money on the roads Clackamas county
could have as good a system of roads as any
county in the country.
What roads Multnomah county has were
made by gradually working out from the
city. When the country people howled be
cause they could get no improvements in
remote sections the city had the power to
continue the administration that pursued
this course and it did so. Such a policy in
this county would be met with the cry of
"city ring" and it would lie voted down by
the country people at the first opportunity.
This city has not the voting strength to en
force the policy which has given Multno
mah county whatever of good roads it pos
sesses. And because the city has not thrust
this upon them the north-ol'-G'lackamas
people are kicking.
Another thing: The city of Portland is
practically Multnomah county. The city
gets all the offices and no one thinks of giv-
intf any other part of the county any consid
eration whatever except to collect the taxes
which Portland may see fit to levy upon it.
In Clackamas county the section north of
the Clackamas has great weight in county
affairs; it has an iniKrtaiit voice in con
ventions; it has its share of the offices and
lias its due influence on the conduct of the
county business. There is no large city to
orertower it and deprive it of Individuality.
These things are worth thinking about.
The situation is entirely changed since the
measure was advocated before. Then Port-
land and Multnomah county had but frac
tion of their present debt and there had
been no movement toward consolidating
city and county. The scheme of building
good reads liavl not then been abandoned.

basis now and it should be weighed very
carefully by the malcontents.

AK.NUAL SCHOOL BOOK ROHilEKY.
(irants Pass Courier: liy the way who is
responsible for the annual robbery perpe
trated on the parents of Oregon through
this thieving school book purchase system?
Why do parents have to pay so much ipore
for books than they did twenty years ago?
We understand that the legislature one of
those notorious legislatures which Oregon is
in the habit of electing selected some one
particular firm and allowed them whatever
price they asked for their books. The legis
lature w hich meets this w inter might spare
a little time from sparking female clerks and

CONVICTS ON THE ROADS.
Kugene Register: Michigan intends to
work her convicts on the roads. This ac
tion will be watched with interest In a great
many states, and especially in Oregon,
where the matter of adopting the same plan
has been talked of a great deal. If the plan
proves successful in Michigan it is likely
that many states will adopt it. In this
state it could doubtless he done to advan
tage, as there is plenty of work needed on
the roads and in this way convict lalsir
would not be brought in competition with
legitimate free labor. Something should be
done with the convicts in this state to make
them earn their board at least.

Fasni G. Port,
Judge Mcllride lias won golden opin
ions from the people and the bar by
the judicial (airness and ability which
he lias displayed during the term that is
now drawing to a close. He baa dis
pensed justice intelligently and wisely.
His decisions in matters ol legal
practice have been given promptly and
clearly. As the result, few "exceptions"
have been noted and no discontent has
been manifested by litigant or lawyer.
The judge lias done his utmost to restrict
court expenses and has expedited busi
ness by evening sessions. He has held
many voluble witnesses in check and at
times restrained counsel for their own
good. In weighty suits, aa well as in
affairs of less account, Judge Mcliride
has paid close attention to details anil
has imparted cheerfulness to the dullest
cases. Astoria Astorian
