11)C rival candiilates for Con
grens met in debate at Portland
lat Monday uiglit, and before one
of the largest audiences that ever
assembled in that city, presented
their opposing political views. The
audience was attentive throughout,
each speaker Iwing frequently cheer
ed by partisan friends as his points
were strongly made. 1 lie main
points attempted to be made by Mr.
Burnett were based on the capital
ami labor question, the tariff, our
national banking system and Gov
ernment laial grants for internal
improvements. The positions taken
by Mr. Burnett on these questions
were ably and successfully contro
verted by Judge Wilson. On tlie
question of the tariff, he proved that
the Democratic party in its plat
form in 1808 occupied the same po
sition now advocated by the He
publican party of this State; that if
the tariff was higher now than in
1828, (as Mr. Burnett asserted)
that it was no burden as there was
forty times as much produce, etc.,
to raise it on ; and that more than
half of the Democrats in Congress
had always voted tor the tariff laws ;
that local or State interest governed
in that matter; that while the peo
ple of Illinois, who wereall farmers,
had instructed their Republican
Congressmen to oppose the tariff',
tlie people of Pennsylvania, who
were all manufacturers, instructed
their Democratic Representatives to
advocate a high tariff; that with
out a tariff there would lie a dearth
of labor in the mills, the same as
there now exists in our shipyards.
On the question of land giants for
internal improvements, which Mr.
Burnett most earnestly opposed,
Judge Wilson, in reply, read from
the State Democratic platform of
1870 where the Democracy call
ed on Government for just such a
grant as Mr. Burnett now so earn
estly denouced. But this was not
all. Nearly every other principle,
said Judge Wilson, enunciated two
years ago was now ignored, ami
many ot them utterly discarded.
This change of front, Judge Wilson
denounced as an e'lfort to gull the
people who did not think fid' them
selves. It made no difference, said
Judge Wilson, whether thea) rail
roads are held by monopolists or
not, so long as they do goal to the
country. If it were not for the land
grant to the Northern and Califor
nia railroad, monopoly as it is now
called, it would not Ih? built at all.
The position of Mr. Burnett on
banking was that lie though paper
money a curse, and National Banks
were only intended to destroy the
liberties of the jieople. 1 le thought
there was no reason why the coun
try could not get along without pa
per money, as it did beforfthe war.
That period, "liefore the war," is
not so long passed, but what fbme
ot us can remember whether there
was any very great destitution of pa
perinotif jr t Uiat time. Weivinem

the Nation, and what is the con
clusion ? "In regard to the home
std law, Judge Wilson said the
only veto President Buchanan ever
gave-was to that law. Ju regaixl
to corruption, he challenged the
Democracy to name one on their
side who had ever been pun
ished tor any crime. Ho spoke

ereil the Administration, as a whole,

! old Republican organization destin

future. He said if he thought the
Cincinnati Convention should force
j the Philadelphia Convention to take
a purer and more advanced platform,
he should be glad, but he was op-
i posed to so dividing the Republi

get into power- He said that Sena

could not make a new party.
Governor G rover, so far, in his

Senate, has carried a full hand. So

a trump card even in the house of
J Nesmith's friends. He played double j
'on Slater, on Helm. He mado
promises to Burnett's friends. Hay
