ORGANIZE FOR SUCCESS.
If the republicans of Oregon City ami
Clarkamas county bare not already buckled
on their armor for the canifaiK'i of next
June it is nigh time to enter the lists for an
aggressive light. The events of the past
year hare folly demonstrated that it is a
matter of business and that it is to the in
terest of all good citizens to see to it that the
affairs of the government are administered
jnhb the object of promoting the business
;aaccss and prosperity of the country. Jt
lias come home to the business man and
to tii laborer that lie needs enough of poli
tics in his government to insure confidence,
integrity, and a wise administration of the
a flairs of the government in all of ils j
branches. The republican party has demon
strated its ability to do this while the demo
cratic party has upon tbe other side proven
itself utterly incompetent and unreliable.
Its action at present in seeking to ally itself
with the populists who are given over to
wild, visionary and impractirable schemes,
shows that the leaders at least ara willing to
resort to any expediency or trick merely for
the sake of power.
If the republicans are to have the) com
bined opposition to fight there is the greater
need for activity at thia time. In the or
ganization of the young men of this city
through the club bearing their name, a
meeting of which Is called for next week,
there Is presented an opportunity for all re
publicans to fall In line with the party that
received the government with credit
wrecked and an empty treasury; success
fully waged a great war and paid a large
part of the great debt then incurred, mean
while giving to the country such laws as re
stored its credit, improved its rivers, lakes
and seaports and brought continued pros
perity till the success of the party which
wrecked the treasury again threatened a re
turn of conditions fraught will) greet na
tional and business danger. If the voters
of Oregon want a change from the present
evil times let them go to the meetings of the
republican clubs and party, and help to or
ganize for success in June next. Now is the
time to do the work.
go any lurthcr In this direction than the
country has already gone J If so a continu
ation of democratic votes and power will
give it. Senator Polph says: "The coun
try was Sieedily Hooded with Uritish goods;
large shipments of foreign niamilai-ttiri'i
were also made to the United Slates from al
most every country of Kurope. M any of the
goods were not adapted (o our necessities.
Merchandise was ltnnried In such quantl
lies that there was not store room for it;
and we are told by writers ol that day that
quantities of merchandise lav upon the
wharves unhoused tor many days. Our In
dustries, which had lived through long,
desolating war. were destroyed. The peo
ple bought largely of foreign goods. All
the specie in the country was sent abroad to
pay for importations. The power of the
people to pay for goods was exhausted. The
surplus of foreign goods was so great that
the prices fell in many Instances far below
the cost of production In the country of
their manufacture. Domestic industries
were ruined; property would not sell for
enough to pay taxes; labor was unem
ployed! bankruptcy was universal, and dis
content prevailed everywhere. There was
loss of confidence between man and man;
despondency, suspicion, and desperation
seized men's minds, and general discontent
soon ripened into riots and insurrections."
SriAKisa of the low and unsatisfactory
price which cereals bring a California paper
observes that "wheat is at such a low ebb in
price from the market constantly falling that
farmers, in California, at least, must bethink
themselves of some more profitable crop.
The rancher ol the valley lands of Califor
nia has not the excuse that be can do noth
ing else but plant cereals, which is practi
cally all that the farmers of the northwest
ern states are permitted to do by the cli
mate. They can grow almost any crop to
perfection, and may abandon cereals alto
gether except for local supplies and devote
their skill to the cultivation of the sugar
beet, the raising of fruit, cattle, sheep.
Tin editors of the country papers have
to bear the brunt of every campnigtt and II
is only lair and just that they should be
recognlred In the distribution of slate of
fices, As a rule they have to do the light
ing, take all tliecurses ami the other Mlns
take Iho plums. There Is one otltce that la
directly in line with the practical newspaper
man's business, and he should he recog
nized as the proper one to lie nominated
therefor. We refer to the oltlca of state
printer, .and would nrge upon the stale
press the necessity of uniting to secure the
ollloe for a representative of the Country
press where It by rights ought to go. If
the papers themselves demand recognition
from the convention In this matter their
wishes will not lie ignored.
limn Is a problem which the hands who
have been employed In the woolen mill In
this city may ponder over while they are
waiting for the demand for shoddy goods to
improve so that the mills can start up again
If five officers receive '-7.000 per annum for
their valuable services what Justice is there
in pinching the 'i" employees who do the
hard work In the mill down to $T.000 per
annum. Is it any wonder that the good
wile has been obliged to go Into the mill and
to take in washing to help out?
St. H n ri has organized a ritualistic se
cret order republican club and will proceed
at once to organize all parts of the county
Into subordinate clubs w hich will send dele
gates to monthly meetings of the county
club. No one but members all! be allowed
to be present at the meetings, and it is
thought that the work which the club can
do will be considerable. The plan is a novel
one, at least In the republican ramp.

Thi democratic partv is making a failure
in its conduct of the affairs of tbe nation
and the Telegram has at last been com
pelled to admit that such is the case. It
says: 'There is only one way for the demo
cratic party to come safely through this
cru-ial period, and that is to substitute pat
riotism for expediency. It must clear itself

omioNs or the press.
New port News: The press generally con
eludes that this able representative of Ore
(ton's interests should be renominated to
serve a few years longer where he is now.
We do not believe that Mr. Hermann ever
asked anvone to urge bis candidacy for

A LEAR SCHOOL.
At the meeting of the convention of re
publican clubs of Ohio Governor McKinley
" We are attending upon the school of ex
perience; and while the scholarship is free,
the expense is enormous. Nor is there a
business man or working man who would
not, if he had the power to do it, defeat the
Wilson hill, and stop at once all present ag
Ration of the tarifl. This sentiment is not
confined to Ohio or the East, but extends to
the South and West. Louisiana and Ten
nessee, Alabama, West Virginia and North
Carolina were quite as earnestly against tbe
Wilson bill as any of the Eastern, Middle
Western or Pacific states. It Is to be re
gretted that the people must so long wait,
must so long sutler, and suffer from their
own agents; but as this is a government of
Jaw, tbe people, who are the sovereign, must
submit to the law. Tbe lesson, however
dear it bas been to tbe country and its vast
interests, may be useful. It will teach us
all that elections are serious public transac
tions, and that their effect does not end on
the day of the election, but continues
through the legal and constitutional term
for which a president and congress are
elected, and cannot be ended sooner."
Continuing, he predicted that the next
house would be republican by a large ma
jority, and that in 1806 the people would re
store the republicans to control of the na
tional administration. He said;
"The people want a change, and they
want it badly. They want it sooner than
they ever dreamed they would want it; and
they never wanted to vote so badly in all
their history as they do to-day. They are
tired of their contract before the period of
its legal termination ; they are tired of this

wage-reducing, queen-reBtoring administra
are so Intensely American that the Ameri
can ople will have faith in them. It
should elevate principles above its leaders.
No one man has the right to dictate the pol
icy of his party, no matter how strong kis
individuality or with what power he is in
vested. The president is a power and con
gress is a power, hut, after all, the people
are stronger (ban either the president or
congress. And it is the eople who make
and unmake parties." Prating of patriot
ism and principles in one breath and howl
ing for fusion or anything to beat tbe repub
licans and hold power in the next, is char
acteristic of democratic consistency as ex
emplified in the columns of the Telegram.
With free trade, wage earners of the Uni
ted States must learn to eiect to work for
such wages as are paid in the most down
trodden countries on the face ol tbe earth
which engage in manufacturing. A case in
hand comes in the announcement of the
United States consul at Belfast, Ireland, that
the English carpet makers are preparing to
reduce the prices of carpets about 40 ier
cent. This reduction can be made only by
a reduction in tbe rates of wages. To which
the San Francisco Call observes: The worst
point in the free trade policy is that a drop
in wages in one country compels a like drop
in all competing countries. If English car
pet manufacturers reduce wages American
carpet manufacturers, unless protected by a
sufficient tariff, will have the alternative of
making a corresponding reduction or go out
of business. What going out of business
means to the wage earner is beginning to be
pretty well understood in the United States.
Ox Monday the Knights of Pythias of
this city will observe tbe 30th anniversary of j
the founding of the order by appropriate
exercices to which they have issued invita
tions to the capacity of their hall. The
order is one of the prosperous young orders
of this city, and although it has been organ
ized here a little less than tvo years It has
bad a prosperous growth and embraces
some of the brightest young men of the city.
Its founder was J. H. Rath bone of Wash
ington, D. C, who instituted the first lodge
in 1804, tbe object being to found an order
devoted to friendship, charity and benevo
lence. From the start of thirty years ago
with less than ten members it has Increased
in membership and influence till it now
numbers over 400,000 members and is classed
among the strong orders of the country
while it exerts a conservative and salutary
has Mr. Hermann been present at a con
vention even, asking for office. The eople
recognizing his efficiency, have nominated
and elected him just as they will again.
Ilillsboro Indndent: There seems to be
a prevailing sentiment among the newspa
pers of the state that the office of state
printer rightly belongs to tbe newspeier
mou men actually engaged in newspaier
work, if the office of state printer is to be
held by men of other callings, then why
not promote the farmer to the Judicial
bench, or tbe sailor to the schoolroom, or
the carpenter at the throttle ol the locomo
tive, and so on all along tbe line. To suc
cessfully manage a 'business requires ap
prenticeship In that particular line of busi-ni-bs.
Success cannot be expected otherwise.

Eugene Register: It is now announced
that W. H. Spaugh is a candidate for the
office of secretary ol state on the populist
ticket. If tbe matter were sifted down it
would be found that all the populist lead
