AN OLD HUT AIJSUItD PltOl'OSI-TION.
Senator Fornker in his great
speech at Canton, 0 Wednesday
evening, showed that ho had differed
with tho president on only threo
questions, as ho certainly had a
right conscientiously to differ. Ono
of theso wns tho Drownsvlllo nffalr
regarding which ho said, In part:
"Those mon hnd boon glvon no
opportunity to ho hoard. It seemed
Tho governor of Florldn, in an ad
dress to tho loglslaluro of that state,
recommended "a resolution memor
ializing congress to purchnso terri
tory, either domestic or foreign, to
provldo menns to purchnso tho prop
erty of tho negroes nt roasonablo
rates and to transport tho negroes to
tho territory purchased by tho United
Btntcs to form n government thoreon
for tho negro raco, to provont Inva
sion and to provont whlto people
from living among thom In tho ter
ritory, and to provont negroes from
mlgrntlng bnck to tho United States."
This Ib a repetition of tho samo
nonsensical proposition that has been
mndo at various times by various
Southern peoplo, but it will nover bo
seriously considered by congress or
tho country. Tho colored people of
this country hnvo a right horo. Their
ancestors woro brought horo against
tholr will, nnd for many gonorntlons
their descendants wero slaves, but
this Is tholr country novortholcss.
Thoy havo no othor. Thoy nro now
cltlzons nnd, theoretically, political
equals, no longer slnvcs. They can
not bo doported without tholr con
sent. And whoro would they bo
sent? Thoy hnvo tolled horo, and
fought too for tho country, nnd horo
thoy nro going to stay, and "grow
up with tho country." Tho governor
'of Florida docs not display good
common sense In this recommendation.
Portland nover had a better, if as
good a pollco judge as Judge Cam
eron, nnd tho peoplo nro going to
keep him right whero ho Is for nn
other torm. Ho carries on tho bus
iness of thnt office exactly as it
should bo carried on, gives every
body n Bquaro deal, is without preju
dice, has a kcon Insight Into humnn
nnturo nnd conduct, nnd In n word
Is n modol city magistrate. It would
bo n grent nilstako to put anybody
olso in his placo at this time.
Among tho men to whom tho Y.
M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. aro much
lndobtcd for n most gonorous con
tribution to tho fund recently raised
by them Is Mr. Frodorlck A. Krlbs,
who though not a very rich mnn con
tributed sovernl thousand dollnrs
cheerfully without urging. It Is-such
wide-awake, progressive nnd liberal
mon as Mr. Krlbs that will causo
Portland to grow nnd becomo gront.

tion of regularly olocted delegates
would not hnvo nomlnntod somobody
nt least as good nB tho best of theso?
PItOltAllliK NOMINEE FOlt MAYOIl
It Ib qulto n prevailing opinion
thnt tho raco for tho republican nom
ination for mayor lies between Mr.
J. I). Coffey nnd Councllmnn Dan J.
Kollaher. Mr. Devlin was first in
tho flold, but sooms to bo losing
ground. A good many voters nro
doubtful about Jils conduct of tho
auditor's olllco. Mr. Coffoy will ro-
colvo tho support of most of tho
labor unions, nnd many business
mon, nnd Mr. Kollnher will recolvo a
vory heavy support on tho oast sldo,
and Is backed qulto gonornlly by ro
tall grocors and othor business mon.
Tho nomination apparently lies bo
twoon theso two. Aa to Mr. Zimmer
man, tho Now Ago, after further In
formation expressed its opinion of
his candidacy last wcok, and it Is
manifest that ho is not seriously In
tho rnco or should not bo. A llttlo
later It will bo easier to guess wheth
er tho nomlneo will bo Coffey or Kol
lnher. Doth will mako big runs.
It Is not Renown yet whether Sur-voyor-Gonoral
Daly will bo reap
pointed to his prcsont position, but
ho villi bo it merit nnd tho wishes of
tho peoplo of Oregon nro to count ns
much as thoy should In tho matter.
General Daley, so far as tho publlo
has over been informed, has given
tho government entlro satisfaction
In tho conduct of his olllco, and it is
certain that ho has pleased all tho
peoplo of Oregon with whom he has
official relations. Thoro
