BHAXE OS SUCH JOURNALISM.
It is the hit dog tbat howls. Mr. J.
At. Lawrence whose questionable methods
as a reporter at the Chautauqua assembly
last year was made mention of in the
Ektirprisi last week, is ont in a limpy,
wish-washy denial of the charges, in the
Oregonian. He started in bravely enough
to make a great fight for his alleged honor,
but fell down in the first round. Before
be gets himself clear of this very unprofes
sional affair he will find that it pays for
even reporters to be honest.
Last Saturday this man Lawrence
thought be had a vindication that would
vindicate and land the Enterprise into a
lively libel suit. So he proceeded to get a
statement from one of the Chautauqua tal
ent to whom he gave a $5 laudation last
year, to the effect that this little Pullman
porter tip was not for favors in the Ore.
gonian but for a special write-up In the
Chautauqua News, which he was then pub
lishing for the Chautauqua association,
lie thus admitting that he bad practiced
this little game in the columns of the Chau
tauqua paper as veil as In the Oregonian.
But through the intervention of a Iriend
this was suppressed and he was saved from
further disgrace. Tbe Chautauqua Daily
News is tbe official organ of the Chautau
qua association and it is supposed by both
tbe public and the distingnisbed people
who appear upon its platform, to give a
e'ear and impartial report of each day's
proceedings. To acknowledge tbat he bad
been showing special favors to the talent
would have been a violation of the trust the
association reposed in him when it gave
bim its work, as well as to show to tbe
world his true character. Tbe first two
years that the Chautauqua Neas was pub
lished it was gotten out in the Estkbpkisi
office and the publisher of this paper never
for a moment thought tbat his contract
with the Chautauqua association would per
mit of bis turning their official organ into a
taffy giving sheet. The same Is true of Mr
Cheney of tbe Courier who has tbe con
tract to publish the News this year and
there is no likelihood of bis disgracing the
association and besmirching his honor by
engaging in so contemptible a practice as
Lawrence was engaged in. But then what
else can be expected from a man who will
hang out his name as one of tbe publishers
of a six by nine sheet while he goes in with
a sheriff to rob the taxpayers of Clackamas
county out of $1295 for publishing an
illegal delinquent tax list.
THE PASSING OF THE O.SK-IDEAD JU.N.
Tbe address by W. J. Bryan at Gladstone
Park was a disappointment to the majority
of reading and thinking populists and dem
ocrats the others thought it was a great
speech. His priori pal line of argument lay
in funny stories with which his speech was
largely made up. While most of them
made a point or was supposed to in sup
port of the question he was discussing, yet
his advocacy of free silver was very weak
and be made no answer tbat could be called
an answer to the arguments advanced by
the republicans in support of the gold
The free silver cause was not strengthened
. by tbe coming of it's great apostle, and
Mr. Bryan's presence in Oregon clearly
proves that it is on tbe wane, for with all
the advertising that was done by the Chau
tauqua association and the booming given
bim by the populist and democratic papers
and leaders only a little over 5000 people
were out to hear him. The free silver
advocates hoped that by getting up a mon
ster demonstration at Gladstone Park to
show to the country that in Oregon the
white metal cause was gaining. But they
were confronti'd with the stern fact that
people are no longer going to be led by a
one idead man. The populists especially
are tired of Mr. Bryan's leadership which
was forced iii'On'tliem and hundreds of
them are not backward in expressing their
condemnation of their windy leader.
The Wiu.amktte Valley Chautauqua
assembly has a name not excelled by any
assembly in the United States for the high
moral and intellectual tone it has main
tained in the four years of its existence.
Its platform talent has always been
promptly paid and most courteously treated
and the astembly work has been carried
While the county may be In need of
funds, It was hardly the proper thing to
declare the tax roll delinquent so early in
tbe summer. It is especially bard on the
farmers who as yet hare bad very little to
sell to raise money and it will be fully six
weeks yet before they will be much better
off, it being that length of time before they
can get returns on their fruit, hay, grain or
fat stock. The taxpayers of Clackamas
county have had rather a bard olt of late.
The tax list was declared delinquent much
earlier last year than was really necessary,
the interest of the taxpayers being made
subservient to the greed of a couple of
newspaper men and the sheriff. Then to
add to the $1295 newspaper fees paid to the
Three Sisters-Press, tbe sheriff bad to make
a bungle and the court ordered tbe list pub
lished over again, which was done this
spring at tbe cost ot fl22, and now
belore the taxpayers bad time to catch
their breath another delinquent list is upon
them. Three delinquent lists in twelve
months is rather rough on the taxpayers,
but then it makes rich picking for the news
papers, especially when tbe list is published
early before many payments have been
Th i Orkconia. to maintain its reputa
tion for fair and impartial reports of local
events, has detailed one of its brightest and
ablest local men ts report tbe Chautauqua
assembly this year, confining their Oregon
City reporter to strictly Oregon City news.
The detailing of a special reporter by the
Oregonian is a compliment to the Chautau
qua assembly for it indicates that the as
sembly has come to be one of the great
gatherings of the Northwest and is so recog
nized by Portland's great daily. The great
Eastern dalles devote as much space to tbe
Chautauqua assemblies of that section as
they do to any of tbe other great state and
national gatherings, and the Assembly at
Gladstone park has attained such import
ance as to hereafter claim and receive the
attention of the press of this section as a
gathering in whose proceedings thousands
of people are interested.
Sosti maliciously disposed persons, who
are opposed to the Chautauqua and never
let an opportunity pass to injure it, have
been circulating the report that tbe trestle
of the East Bide Railway across the Clacka
mas bottom below this city was unsale for
loaded cars to pass over. This trestle was
built for a double track and is ss strong as
any in Oregon and if these worthies never
get their necks broken until it is done by a
fall from this trestle they will live'to inflict
themselves on Oregon City for an indefinite

C. G. Jacobs, Secretary.
Oregon City, June 10, 1807.
William J. Bryan, the apostle of free
silver delivered a lecture on liitiuttalism
at Gladstone Turk, on Monday last.
Early In the morning farmers from all
sections ot the county, were Been throng
ing the streota of Oregon City, waiting
for the arrival of the silver shamplon
Col. K. A. Miller, president of the W
V. C. A., boarded the taain in the morn
tng and went aa far south as Salem
where he met Mr. Bryan, and accom
panled him to Gladstone Park. Bryan
arrived on the S. P. train at the Glad
stone depot at 2:10 o'clock p.m., and
was driven in a carriage direct to the
old auditorium where the audience had
been assembled, lie waa met by the
officers of the association and escorted to
the platform. On taking his seat be waa
greeted by a hearty applause after which
be was introduced in a few brief words
by President Miller. Mr. Bryan then
stepped to the front of the platform and
began his speech, lie traced the
history of free silver from '73 to the
present time, telling the influence of the
act of '73, the Bland-Allison act of ISiX),
and the Shermon act upon the rise and
decline of the free and unlimited! coinage
of silver. He then defined an honest
dollar, discriminating between the "gold
bug definition, and his own which is:
"an honest dollar is one whose average
purchasing power la the same yesterday!
today and forever." He said: "A
dollar that rises' in purchasing power is
just aa dishonest as one that falls in pur
chasing power," and emphasised the
statement that the test of honest money
was in the purchasing power. '
Throughout his talk, be introduced
illustrations which, while they seemed
to take well with his audience, which
would have applauded quite aa vocifer
ously had he taken them from Ayer'a
almanac, were of a character that ap
pealed to non-readers rather than the
Mr. Bryan has a thorough knowledge
ef elocutionary effect, and knows when
to use his stock in trade of old, season-
cracked jokes, which his audience too
frequently mistakes for wit, and his free
silver arguments, which have been out in
the wet, and have warped to the best
advantage. He is a man of undoubted
oratorical ability, and it is to be re
gretted that he does not exercise his
talents in a cause more worthy of
Mr. Bryan waa listened to with the
closest attention, and at the close of hit
speech was heartily applauded. (Owing
to hia engagement in Portland, he hur
ried away to his train disappointing
many of bis admirers who expected that
e would "hold a reception. While
awaiting the arrival of Mr. Bryan the
audience was entertained with some
musical selections by Parson's orchestra
of Portland, and at tbe close of the
meeting by the Lafayette band which had
come with an excursion on the steamer
Eugene from the Yamhill river. The
Southern Pacific brought two excursions
of 11 coaches each, one from Portland
and one from Salem and south, while
the electric cars brought in crowds from
both Oregon City and Portland. These
with the county people who came in
private rigs, made up a crowd of nearly
