Tbe city ticket nominated br the republi
cans on Monday evening is trovd clean
ticket, composed ol representative citizens,
and every man on tbe ticket ought to com
mand the hearty support and sultra of
every good citiien ho favors an honest
administration of the city's atlairs at the
bands of clean men. There is not a name
on tbe ticket that is not well and favorably
known, and aside from personal dislike,
which onght i.ot to dominate in the choice
of officers to administer the affairs of the
city, tbere can be no valid objection brought
against the men named at Monday's con
vention. The nominee for mayor, T. Is
Cbarman, has in tbe past evinced a lively
interest in the welfare of (lit city and may
be relied upon, in case of bis electioi., to
jrtve the office the attention abicb it de
mand at this time. He will be a credit lo
the office and no citizen of die city will have
cause to blush over the acts of its chief ex
ecutive either as a private cilUen or a serv
anl of the public in case of bit election.
J, N. Harrington, H. C. Stevens,
George Brooghton, and 0. H. Wisbart are
careful, conservative citizens of the city
Vbotn every one knows and respects. They
were not put up simply as vote catchers,
but because they can be relied upon to con-
duct tbe affairs of the city in a wise and i
economic manner. There is no reason why I
every man on tbe ticket should not receive
the united support of republicans and dem
ocrats and even of others who honestly
wish the welfare of the city abeve mere par
Usansliip. It is a ticket on which all good
citizens can and ought to unite.
Amoroeof tlio Thanksgiving scnson this
extract from the Kami and Home may
furnish the text for a line or thought a little
out ol the usual run, it says: "Throughout
the mechanical Industries many families
are Just now without the income of regular
wages, and the winter looks dark. The
families of business men are learning a
long-neoiled lesson in economy; for the
middle classes of American society are x
travagent in their habits ol living. The
farming industry, on the other hand, li not
suffering like the others from recent div
turbaneee of trade, and they can celebrate
the rilgrlm feast day with a grateful heart.
The nation as a whole may well congrat
ulate herself upon the remarkable strength
and stability ot this foundation of all indus
tries, the agricultural, at a time when a pure
foundation is to essential to the recovery
of business. As shown by census figures
made by this paper, hardly one-half of our
farms are mortgaged a guarantee ofluture
prosperity in all lines. This is worthy of
celebration on the part of the whole people
without regard to occupation. Itcmember
that the Pilgrims could get up a lot of
Thanksgiving enthusiasm over the fact that
they were alive and well, with the prospect
of having enough to eat and wear through
tlio winter. The resources of klie United
States as we see them now throw the glow
of promise not on a season to come but on
1'hominknt democrat snid before the
republican convention Hint If the republi
cans would pul up a representative ticket
of capable and clean men It would get a
large vote from the democratic parly which
bus no ticket of its 011, The republicans
point with pride lo the names which were
placed 011 the ticket on Motidny and invite
all good cltisens to unite In electing these
men to olllce since their elm lion will best
Insure good government during the two
years for which the) are chosen.
it Is reported that several of the candl
dales lor the appointive olllcea have taken
off their coals for the purpose of electing
mayor, m mie it may be a good tiling to
have a friend in the mayor it la well lo bea
in mind that the council also has a voice In
determining who shall serve the city. It
may not alter all be the wise thing to worl
for a mayor and antagonise members ot tl
council by the act.
A Washington corresondent snys the
tariff bill being prepared by tbe Ways and
Means committee proposes " A reduction
ol all protective duties to a point where it is
supposed there will be the greutest encour
agement for importations at a rate to pro
duce the greatest revenue." This is in ac
cord with the declaration of the Chicago
platform of the dominant party and it will
be well for every laboring man to consider
its meaning and determine as to tbe result
It can mean nothing else than the partial
transfer of American industries to foreign
countries. It is impossible to reduce duties
and increase revenues without an increase
in the amount of imported goods. Now,
for every increase of a million dollars' worth
of goods Imported there w ill be a tailing off
of a million dollars worth in the home pro
ducts. This, ol course, does not apply to
foreign products that we cannot produce
ourselves. But it applies to woolen goods,
cotton goods, iron in all stages of manufac
ture to everything in fact which under a
protective ) tariff we are now
SicktTARY Caklism says it Itaaatnurd
to contend that there should he two dif
ferent standards of value as it would be to
Insist that there should be two yard-sticks

WITH TEAXKFUL HEARTS.
Thanksgiving day has come to be consid
ered as a time to enjoy something more
than ordinary of the material things w hich
contribute to the comfort and enjoyment of
tbe inner man, and in this part at least of
the continent there are few who do not
find tbe means and something to be thank
ful for. Even if tbe past rear baa not pros
pered with us as fully as we could have de
aired we may have occasion to be glad that
it is no worse, thereby emulating tbe exam'
pie of tbe laborer referred to in tbe old
school readers who, losing one by one the
comforts which he had provided for the
evening meal, yet after each loss found he
bad something left to be thankful for, and did
not make bad niatters worse by fretting over
what be could in 110 way help since the evil
bad already been done.
We may not have as many dollars as we
bad a year ago, but friends, relatives and
health need be no less or no less dear on
tti at account, it is probable that all have
enough to eat and could and would wil
lingly share with any less fortunate, so that
they too might have occasion to be thankful
on the day set apart for thanksgiving and
prayer. It is not enough that the time or
tbe annnal thanksgiving be set apart as a
season to make glad both in our own fami
lies and by assisting as we may be able any
less fortunate, but it is well and proper that
we should upon this occasion And some
means to lighten the burden and make
bright the pathway of someone traveling in
tbe shadow of a passing cloud and be thank
ful for the opportunity to assist a fellow
For every million dollars decline in the
consumption of home made goods, there
must be a corresponding falling offiu the
amount of labor and raw material consumed.

Th democrats of this city who favor
good government administered hy clean
men without axes to grind, ought to Hud
110 difficulty in determining which ticket
they will support at the polls next Monday
since tbey have nominated no ticket of
their own. Tin republicans offer them a
ticket composed- of good" clean men against
none of whom is there a breath of scandal.
They are also comment men, representa
tive citizens and well qualified to transact
tbe business of the city intelligently and
carefully. Besides, they are honest and
straightforward and will seek, not to pro
mote personal ends but the city's interests
and welfare. Let their election speak in
no unmistakable terms the intention of the
citizens of Oregon City to have a good gov
ernment administered by men whom all cim
resct and trust, in all places, in all things
and at all times.

A Letter Fall of Interesting Newt From a live
TBI Boston Journal says that the south
ern democratic members of tbe Ways and
Means committee are willing to grant the
New England manufacturers only 25 per
cent duty. This is exactly 25 per cent,
more than the New England woolen manu
facturers are willing to allow the pro
ducers of wool. It is now understood that
the Waj s and Means committee have de
cided to put wool, iron, ore and other raw
materials on the free list. It Is intimated
also that the southern and western pro
ducers of raw materials will not vote for a
bill which admits such materials free. Pres
ent appearances are that when congress
meets it will have a livelier time over the
tariff than it bad over silver.
There is always more or less pulling and
hauling previous to the city election in fa
vor of tbe different candidates for the ap
pointive offices, and the present canvass
does not vary from its predecessors in this
particular. Whatever couse In this resect
others may have pursued, it Is safe to con
clude that Mr. Cbarman has not pledged
Inmsell to the support of any one, or seve
ral candidates for the various ofllces to be
filled, but that he will, when the time comes
to fill the offices, consult the wishes of the
citizens and appoint the men that the peo
ple want. Can the candidate or the people
ask more than this?
Govlbhos McKihlet in a recent speech
in Boston, quoted from President Cleve
land's message to congress last September
tbe clause, " It may be true that the embar
rassment from which the business of the
country is auffering arises as much from
evils apprehended as from those actually
existing," and continued, "This is true.
Remove the apprehension of threatened
tariff legislation, remove the scare of a pro-j
mised free-trade bill, remove the fear which
has settled upon every business Interest,
and confidence will return. What would
be more welcome to business interests of
the country than an assurance that this
congress would adjourn without meddling
with our industrial legislation? I sound a
note of warning here to-night. The effect
of tbe proposed tariff legislation, whether
intended or not, is an unerring blow at
labor which will be instantly felt in tbe
home ol every operative in the United
The McRinley theory, according to the
San Fraucisco Call, is for each nation to look
out for itself. If general natural conditions
are more favorable to the wage-earners In the
United States than in Europe we have a
perfect right to legislate to preserve those
conditions. The McKinley tariff imposes
duties on foreign products to enable Ameri
can manufacturers to retain the American
market while conforming to the American
standard of wages. The average American
does not gloat over human misery, but he
keeps misery as far from bis own peaceful
shores as possible.

John Zumwall, one of ouroldet pioneer,

Tuesday, the Hth, at Ins resilience, with a

weeks with relatives in Yanrxtuver, M ald

the dinner, so the invitations were not sent
to all whom they had intended to invite for

and disapK)intment would ensue. Hence
those who may think they were slighted
will now know the true cause. Among

Tuc law of this country should be so
