Convincing Logic. A comparison
of the first year of President Grant's ad
ministration with tho last and most eco
nomical of Andy Johnson's, shows the
receipts from internal revenue, with di
minished taxes, to have been $20,000,
000 more, and the government expenses
$00,000,000 less,under Grant than under
Johnson. These figures arc convincing,
and prove that all the charges of waste
ful expenditure of the public lunds,
made by Democrats against the present
administration, are as false as the hearts
that made them.
Washington Items. Up to the
13th, 150 bills and joint resolutions bad
been introduced into Congress, and sent
to tho' appropriate committees. It is
probablo that they will not all be acted
upon during the present session, which,
it is now thought, will close its labors now they nave proposed another
Democracy Opposed to Railroads.
The following plain statement of facts
we find in the Oregonian's "Washington
For several years the Democracy has
been stealthily and laboriously hunting
around, partly after the style of a bur
glar trying to break jail, and then again
in imitation of the owl, hunting in the
glare of a midday sun, for some hollow
log id which to poke its muddled head,
for a platform on which to go before the
people. Opposition to the war against
the rebels was tried until Democracy and
rebellion became almost synonymous
terms. Then, after the rebels were
soundly thrashed, Democracy valiantly
raised its arms against the right ot col
ored men to hold and enjoy civil and po
litical rights j and was again defeated.
Then they went back on the old maxim,
that "honesty is the best policy," and
proposed to repudiate the national debt,
; and have been defeated on that : and

all of whom were anxious to learn some

main efforts were directed toward show

moderate means, the advantages possess

ever among what might be termed the
floating class men who can pack their
carpet-bags and start at a moment's no
tice. He gives it as his impression that
the immigration during the Summer of
' 1870 will be largely in excess ot any
heretofore, and that the body of this im
migration, will be made up of substan
tial men, who come here to better their
condition, and make -a future home.
This is the kind of population Oregon

Democratic Candidates for Gov
ernor.1 It is announced that the Yam
hill Democratic Convention instructed
for G rover as their choice for Governor.
Multnomah county instructed for Chap
man, but the Statesman is assured that
the delegated are teally Grover men,
with a Chapman clause thrown in as a
satisfaction to the "meek mannered old

for Avery, which caused some of the

with indignation. G rover's chanches for
the nomination seem to bo cheering at
The Two Parties Compared.
Here is a comparison of the intents and
purposes of the two parties of to-day,
taken from the Oregonian, that exactly
fills the bill :
While the Republican party addresses
itself to the living present and proposes
truly American policy which looks to
development of the country and its great
future possibilities, the Democratic party
presents itself as a clog and obstruction
the way of advancement ; and, in
stead of laying hold of present opportu
nities and helping to work out the desti
ny ot the country, it expends its energy
n a iatuous attempt to revive political
questions forever settled, and to undo
what it could not prevent being done.
Can such a party long survive on euch a
basis ? Can these dry bones live ?
Woman Suffrage. An exchange,
in referring to the fact that but few
women voted at the recent election in
Salt Lake, remarks : "This fact imme
diately puts a brighter f:ce on the ques
tion of woman suffrage. It seems all the
woman want is the right to vote, and if
they won't use it any more than the Mor
mon women it would be as well to let
them have it, if only to get rid of their
persistent demands for it."
Snow Storm. A snow storm of al
most unprecedented violence occurred
throughout the East on the 12th and 13th.
In Chicago the street cars were obliged
to stop running, owing to the great depth
of snow, and locomotion of any kind was
difficult. Trains on most of the railways
were delayed, and in Wisconsin and
Minnesota the trains were snowed in.
Telegraphic communication was inter
rupted by the storm.
Spanish Duel. A duel recently
transpired outside the walls of Madrid,
Spain, between Prince Henri de Bour
bon, brother of the consort of ex-Queen
Isaillla, and the Duke de Montpensier,
in which the Prince was killed, being
shot through the head at the second fire.
A harsh letter to the Duke caused the
quarrel. The Duke, is said to have been
much affected by the result, and, as the
Prince was poor, offers to provide for the
widow and children.
opposition to railroads in the west.
This new platform was announced in
the Uuited States Senate by Senators
Thurman and Casscrly, who were evi
dently put forward as representatives of
the Democracy, in the debate over a lit
tle railroad bill to aid the west side road
in your State. The specious reason as
signed for the new platform, is, that tbc
Democracy desires to preserve the public
land for the actual settlers ; and they go
on to argue the question as it a railroad
land grant actually wiped off the face of
the globe so much land. Their charge
that such a grant takes from the settlers
even any land, is not only positively false,
but on the contrary, the railroad grants
secure the land to the settlers, by taking
it out of the hands of speculators and
military warrants, agricultural scrip, and
other means to cover vast areas of good
lands. All railroad lands must now be
sold to actual settlers, in quantities not
more than one quarter section, at two
dollars and a half per acre ; aud yet the
Democracy would prohibit actual settlers
the privilege of paying that price per
acre with a railroad improvement, and
then invite him to go on the same lands
for homesteads, and starve without any
road to get to market. Every man desir
ing a home, or a farm, or land, will repu
diate this ; pretetided friendship of the
Democracy, which invites settlers into a
wilderness, and to the comforts of a Snake
The land grant system was fairly in
augurated in 1850, and though often as
sailed, the wisdom of the policy has
been repeatedly vindicated by over
whelming votes in both houses of Con
gress by all parties.
But whence comes this new, this dem
agogic love for the settler ? From the
Democracy ; from the same party which
opposed the passage of the homestead
law, to secure free homes to the landless.
If honest men, Thurman and Casserly
ought to hang their heads in shame at
this onslaught on the rights and claims of
the hardy pioneers who push out along
the railroads, and plant schools, churches,
ciyilization and national glory and pros
perity in the departing footsteps of sav
ages and barbarism.
Thus ' we again see this Democratic
party arraying itself against the progress
of the age, the development of the West,
and rights of the pioneers.
Oregon Democratic Press. The
Democratic press of Oregon is but the
echo of demagogic partisanship. ' It re
ports the same old tale from day to day
and from week to week, and continually
mourns over embalmed mummies, or
strews flowers over the gravepf ancient
Democracy. It seems to be incapable of
learning that the Confederate cause was
crushed out with the rebellion, and that
the ountry is entering upon a new po
litical era. The late amendments to the
Constitution, says an exchange, are the
mile posts of political progress. How
much time must pass before the conduct
ors of the Oregon Democratic press will
freely admit, what they know to be true,
that Democracy means equal and exact
justice to all men ? Instead of crying
over the bones of the dead past, why do they
not move onward and prepare their read
ers to assimilate themselves with the rad
ical changes forced upon the country by
their treason ? Instead of heaping abuse
upon the party of progress the party
that saved to them and theirs the liber
tics they now enjoy let them emulate the
example of the New York World, and
wage a war upon corruption in their own
Yamhill. The Democratic Conven
tion of Yamhill instructed for Grover in
this way : On putting the motion to in
struct for Grover, but few vote'd " aye,"
but the chairman decided it carried with
out putting the negative vote!. It was a
case of strategy, and some of the Democ
racy are reported as swearing' most ter
ribly. What ahappy and harmonious
family. ' .'-' . ;

Look at the Figures. Those who
are accustomed to descant on "Radical
extravagance," says the Oregonian, would
find something worth their attention if
they would only look at Democratic do
ings in the city of New York. The civil
list of tho United- States embraces all the
pay and public expenses of Senators and
Congressmen, with contingencies of both
Houses, printing, advertising, library of
Congress, botanic garden, Court ot Claims,
salaries of the President, Vice President,
Cabinet officers and Clerks, publishing
laws, diplomatic salaries and expenses of
foreign intercourse, the vast machin
ery of the Treasury and Internal Reve
nue, the Mint and its branches, the ex
pense of Territorial Government, of Na
tional loans, every expense pertaining to
the care ofpublic lands, Indian Affairs
and Pensions, the Patent Office, the
Washington Police, Smithsonian Institu
tion, various hospitals, all war expenses
except the pay of the army and navy,
Post Office, and Agriculture, and all the
expenses of United States Courts, save
fees to District Attorneys and Marshals.
The entire appropriation for all this work
for the year ending next June is 823,-
972,352 80. " The New York Tribune
shows that the expenses of that city un
der the Tammany ring for I860 were
823,920,295 82 within 852,057 48 of
the entire civil list expenses ot the Uni
ted States Government at home and
abroad. Look at the figures : United
States, $23,972,352 80. City of New
York, S23J920.295 32. . Wouldn't it be
a promising prospect for tax payers if the

"Appropriate Legislation." Says
the Portland Call: The "Act to enforce
the 15th Amendment" places it beyond
the control of Democratic County Com
missioners to select Inspectors and Judges
of elections who may disregard the rights
of voters, and furnish returns to give
certificates of election to Lost Cause

Democratic ruffianism becomes too ram

to call on the nearest commanding officer
