thisrnmpitiKi) which is slnmr limn ever
before. Not only have they a pHxl clean
ticket to support and elect, but this ticket
stands on a plntlorm which promulgate
and represents principles w hich are ef no
small importance to the busint'sg Imprests of
tlie country. Too Ioiir lias business ot all
kinds sunVred from the violent and untrust
worthy blinds of the opposing puny. It is
time that there should be a change which
will (gain set the wheels ot industry and
business ill motion. The history of the re
publican party promises that with lis return
to power there will be more work and better
times. The plat lor in upon which the can
didate) stand is a business document which
promises to conduct the art airs of state In an
economical and businesslike manner. Ami
last but not least the men nominated by the
party to stand upon that platform and carry
out its principles are clean men, of ability,
who have the confidence of the party, anil
should be elected by the most pronounced
majorities ever (riven candidates in the state.
Hon. C. W. Fulton, who was defeated for
the nomination for governor has many
warm friends In this county who, had cir
cumstances been different, would gl idly
have joined forces with the Astoria contin
gent in sounding his praises. Without a
candidate from Clackamas county It is
almost certain that the solid vote of this
delegation would have been cast for the
Clatsop statesman. There is little use in
talking of what might have been, but of
this Mr. Fulton may be certain that he has
no better wishers or warmer supporters in
his own county than he has in Clackamas.
The enthusiasm manifested in the conven
tion at the time of his appearance after the
nomination of his opponent, was more pro
nounced than that which marked the selec
tion of Judge Lord, and it may rightfully
be concluded therefrom that Mr. Fulton is
looked upon by a large majority of the peo
ple of the state as easily the foremost com
Ing man In the state.
Tin Iron Worker does nut seem to appre
ciate the kindness of the democratic con
vention which placed an Oswego man on
the ticket Tor an odice that was "going a
begging." It says: At the democratic con
vention Oswego, Ignored by the republicans,
was insulted. After no one would take the

the "honor' was thrust upon Mr. A. W.
Shipley. Mr. Shipley is a democrat, but too
much of a gentleman and a man of sense to
be made to swallow what no sue else would
have. He was entitled to more considera
tion and better treatment. Had he been in
attendance at the convention we feel as
sured he also would have declined to be a
candidate, and probably will do so yet. It
was an insult, pure and simple.
Thi Rural Spirit, speaking of the active
demand for good butler at nearly all times,
says: There has been a heavy drop in the
price of butter during the past two weeks
and it is now about as low as it ever gels in
Portland. The price of " common" butter
is so low that it cannot possibly pay the
farmers to produce it, hut the same was true
last year and the year before. Tbeproduc
tion of what is called "common butter" is
Willi. the democratic ticket Is a credita
ble one in the main, the only tulcrcnce
that can be drawn from the way It was made
up Is Hint the convention had no luiesof
electing a single mini plncel thereon, tt Is
plain that it was placed in the Held to main
tain the party organisation, If the ticket
is a fairly good one (he same cannot le said
of the platform, which in several respects
is pernicious. At this lime no political
parly should adopt and favor any principles
which are calculated to continue ami accent
uate the distressing times through which we
are yet passing. As the parly has always
been willing to promise anything for the
sake of obtaining or maintaining power, so
at this time it has been true to ita past
record and again comet More the people
of the state pledgosl to the performanc e of
certain things which if carried into ell'ccl, or
which being seriously threatened, would
bring disaster, and those to llrsl feel the
evil ell rets are those for whom the party pro
fesses the most solicitude. We had lioed
that the democratic party would have prof.
Ited by the scourging of the past year and
confine its platform loan honest statement u(
its principles. The fact that it has not seen
tit to do this should drive from its support
all who favor an administration of honest
With the return of spring ami renewed ac
tivities in the building lines il ts not out ot
place to remind our people thai the way to
build up Oregon City is to give Oregon City
contractors ami laborers the preference in
work that is to bedone.und on the other hand
those who ant to do the work should, by
making their prices reasonable, make It lo
the interest of the employer to give them
the work. The few dollars saved by giving
the contract to an outsider are not necessa
rily well saved, since by so doing the money
may be paid out to those alio a ill spend il
not in building up the city but in other
places, and it is not a good plan to send
money out of the community If it can lie
kept at home. This principle is In accord
with the republican doctrine which would
give home labor prelerence over its foreign
It is hard to see Just what has been gained
by the dirty Breckinridge trial. I-ong be
fore lis conclusion he stood sell convicted of
all be was charged with in the complaint
except that of the bare promise of marriage
to a frequenter ot houses of 111 repute. All
will agree that the damages awarded are
none too great, although on the other hand
her character ought not to entitle her to a
cent of this amount. The real trial is yet
to come when the people of the congress
man's district will pass iiKiii his fitness to
be returned lo his present seat. In the trial
to come the people sit not alone as jurors in
his case but in theirj own. The American
people may well be interested in knowing
whether Mr. Breckinridge represents or
misrepresents bis constituents.

Amest Captain Apperson's candidacy for
the otlire of governor, it is worthy to note
that his fitness for the office at this time
when a wise and economical administration
of the allaira of state is so much needed,
was generally recognized by the delegates
to tbe convention, but Mr. Apperson stead
fastly refused to enter into any combines to
secure the nomination, when by doing so be
might greatly have enhanced bis chances
for tbe nomination. Had those whom be

and those who professed friendship at this
time only to violate their pledges, been can

have been different or bis name would not
have gone before the convention.
C. M. Idleman who was nominated by the
republicans for attorney-general of the state
needs no introduction to the republicans of
this section of the state. As the business
partner of Mr. W. C. Johnson he has for
years been mingling with our people who
know bun to be an energetic, careful, pains
taking young attorney of much more than
ordinary ability. He is in fact recognized
as one of the brightest and ablest attorneys
in the state, and with him us counsel for the

Tbis is the almost universal verdict Since
the organization of the republican party in
tbis state it is not probable that a nomina
ting convention has disappointed as many
men and yet at tbe same time placed before
tbe people as satisfactory a ticket as that
named last week. No man of all the candi
dates has risen up to say that a stronger or a
better ticket could have been named. Slates
and combinations had been made, which,
prior to the convention, promised complete
success for those who had made them, yet
the convention proceeded to make a ticket
regardless of these combinations, and the
result is a strong clean ticket from top to
The cry of "ring rule" and "bossinm"
which baa in the past been raised against
the republican ticket can have no rightful
place in the campaign this year, since tbe
so-called bosses had but little to do with the

inated to lead the republicans to success in
It is a new deal all around, yet the men
placed on the ticket are not unknown fac
tors whose strength has not bean tried.
They are strong men whose abilities
, are known and in whom the people ol the
state have confidence. They have proven
themselves worthy of confidence by their
Actions in the past, and while it would be
strange if there were no attempt to smirch
tbe character of the nominees there never
was a time when there was as little occasion
lor mud-slinging as there is in this cam
paign. .Republicans have a duty to perform in
Fob ten years Dinger Hermann has served
the people of Oregon well, and his nomina
tion by acclamation at this time is another
evidence of their approval. During these
years he has won for himself the esteem
and respect of his colleagues in congress
till he now baa no small amount of influ
ence in securing legislation favorable to the
state. It is not likely to be a question of re
election but one of majority in his case.
The Hillsboro Independent says: The
populists are fond of using the term " gold
bugs," but it don't seem to be an appropri
ate epithet to apply to a man possessed of
great wealth. To illustrate: One would
hardly be justified in saying that a man
having a large stock of potatoes is a potato
bug, nor would one possessing a great herd
of hogs be a sowbug, nor yet is a large dealer
in furniture properly a bedbug.

the Evening Telegram in effect bew ails the
adoption of tbe Reed rules and says, "thirty
years ago such a display of autocratic power
as was exercised by Reed and is now being
exercised by Crisp would have precipitated
a revolution." Thirty years ago the repub
licans were in power and there was no occa
sion for adopting and enforcing such rules;
but forty-eight years ago with a democratic
administration it was necessary to fine
members by depriving them of their pay in
order to nee ure legislation, and the rules
adopted Tuesday revive a rule in force in
the days of Polk.

Albany Herald: The demand for a new
deal, for new men in publicolUce, hu b was
shown so strongly in the republican state
convention, is likely to reach lo the selec
tion of a V nlted Stales Senator next win
ter. In this connection we wish to say that
the selection of Hon. C. W. Fulton of Asto

choice. It is no detriment to Mr. Fulton
that he was defeated for the nomination of
governor by Judge Iord.
Eugene Register: What were sup posed to
be tbe strong slates were badly demoralized
In tbe republican slate convention at Port

before the people by the republican parly or
Oregon. The selections for all the olllces
are good ones. So far as we know no com
plaint can be made against the private or
official character of any man on the stale
ticket. With such a ticket to iin-ent lo (he
voters there is no doubt but what the re
publicans of Oregon will roll up majorities
next June such as have never been heard

Astoria Herald: The republican state
convention has finished its nominations
and a strong ticket is presented to the Intel
ligent voters of Oregon. The ticket is com
posed of the best representative men of the
Times-Mountaineer: The nominees are
men w ho have the respect of their fellow
citizens and are thoroughly competent to
fill the positions for which they have been
named. From the first on the ticket to the
last, each is entitled to the lull support of
republicans, and the manner of their nomi
nation was such as should produce the
greatest harmony among (partisans. The
convention was particularly distinguished
from its Inception for an effort to break loose
from the domination of bosses and the ma
