OFF ICIAL CITY PAPER.
ALBANY, FRIDAY, APIUL 21, 1S7G.
The most cheering and inspiring
news comes up from every precinct in
XJun county. Everywhere, without an
exception, throughout the county ponies
the welcome words : "The attendance
at our Republican primary was the
largest ever known before, and every
thing passed off most harmoniously."
. Republicans are waking up to the d u
ties of the hour, and purpose showing
their strength in the coming battle, and
misrule and corruption in county affairs
will receive a terrible rebuke in J une.
A long-suffering aud patient people,
after looking in vain for even a Mign of
'reform aud retrenchment" in county
affairs at the hands of Democracy, and
receiving no sign, but on the contraiy
perceiving a new determination on the
lart of the Democratic leaders to con
tinue to build up and enrich pat ty fa
vorites, no matter at what cost to the
taxpayer?, have determined in their
sovereign might to cast out the evil
doers forever, and purge the high places
from tlie rottenness and festering corrup
tion with which tliey are reeking. All
over the county men are to be found
woo heretofore nave not attended pri
maries, and scarcely ever voted, who
are now at work with might and main
to secure a Republican triumph in June
Tliere is no other hope for Linn county
but in the success of the Republican
ticket. All true men in the county sec
this now, and are looking with anxious
Iiearts to the results of the Republican
County Convention which assembles in
this city next Wednesday. We are
sure the people will not be disappoint
ed, but that a ticket of good, honest
and true men will be selected for their
suffrages not men who have been
standing with their mouths open at
very convention within the memory of
man, asking for office, but sterling, capa
ble, pure men, men of thepeople.who are
in sympathy with the people, and who
stand well with their neighbors. With
such a ticket we cannot fail.

The Duty or the Republican Convention.
The earnest cry of the people, not
only in Linn county, but from one end
of the Union to the other, is, "give us
capable, substantial, honest, scber men
for our officials." The people absolute
ly loathe and detest these old party
hacks who have done nothing during
their whole lives but stand with open
mouths demanding "give us oflice."
For swearing great round oaths, and
guzzling immoderate quantities ot tangle-foot,
these persistent office-seekers
have first class diplomas; outside ot
these, bit few of them possess any
claims whatever. The Democratic
party having failed to present a ticket
the people will support, it now becomes
the duty of the Republican County
Convention to place in nomination a
ticket that the honest voter of the
county can conscientiously work and
vote tor. , Place true men, men of char

it will be elected by an overwhelming
The most cheering accounts reach us
from Benton county. The Republi
cans of Benton are at work, and are
confident of a glorious victory in June.
The Republicans all over the State are
in good heart, and it only remains for
the Convention to do its duty to still
further assure and strengthen the party.

seen through Democratic fpectac.es, a
Granger is good enough as a voter and
taxp&yer, but is not good enough to
hold any office i;i which there is money.
As evidence of the truth ot this propo
sition, look at the Democratic ticket in
Iidn county. The only offices in which
there is really any money, are those of
Slieriff and Clerk, and although Gran
gers offered themselves for the position,
men as well qualified, wo are told, to
fill the potations as the two who got
away with the nominations, yet they
were snubbed by the very men who
have all along professed to be warm
admirers and fast friends of the Gran
gers, and their claims for office rldi-
, coled. Two chronic office-seekers asked
for the offices, and beside their claims
the Granger's honest petitions for an
equal share of the spoils of office, al-
' though patting in all the capital, dwin
dles into utter insignificance. And the
Granger will still continue to foist into
office these political hacks that they
may fatten and grow purse-proud at the
public crib, and heap up taxes : on the
heads ot those who made and feed them!
Oh, yes, Democratic Granger, ro mat
ter bow much you . are snubbed and
kicked and cursed and bled, you will
still bow in humble subrnksion to these
lordly non-producers, because, you
know, you are only fit to toil and vote
you must not aspire to office, none
but the aristocratic office-seeker is quali
fied has the "brain" to fill moneyed
. offices in the Democratic party.

of Southern Democracy. It Republi
