Tin democrats of Marion county have
had all the fusion they want. With the
brethren here it is different as they
flatter themselves that all of the demo
crats and populists will follow any aggre
gation gotten together for the purpose of
carrolling the officers. All the men in
the rouuty are not after the oil'icea and
these men do not see why they should
follow a crowd that avowedly has noth
ing to bring tbem together except the
loaves and fishes. This "independent"
movement is run by leaden that do
not agree on finance, tariff or the course
the government should take with our
recently acquired possessions. But then
they want the offices and the voter will

where a monument will be erected.
The Oregonian has about $10,000 for this

burial will take place will be decided by
relutives, but if they could all he buried
at one place it would be better and a
more fitting monument erected.
Observes that democratic journal, the
Little Rock Gazette:
" 'Expansion doesn't appear to be a
party question in Alabama, Arkansas
and Tennessee, where prominent demo
crats are advocatiuir it.' says the Searcy
Times. No; not strictly a party ques
tion now, but atone time it was, and for
many years the popular policy of the
democratic party. At one time the
United States consisted only of a small
strip on the Atlantic coast, but through
democratic influence the territory was
expanded until now we are recognized
as the greatest and most powerful nation
in the world."
This is well put. But the Gazette
might have added tiiat those who claim
to be the leaders of the democn tic party
now are doing their best to make ex
pansion a party question, to the profit
alone of the republicans.
