A few years go, not so long but that
our agricultural friends remember the
time very well, when tlie property as
sessed for taxes looted up but little
more than half what it does at present,
when the Iiepublicac party was in
power in this county, the tax levy was
but fourteen mills. During tlie time
the; . Republicans had the man
agement of county affair, they erected
a magnificent Court House, and several
splendid bridges all of which stand
3to the credit and honesty ot the Repub
lican j party today. The Democrats
have 'been in power since then, and al
though the tax assessment has probably
more than doubled, and outside of tlie
"ten thousand dollar jail pecalation,no
county improvements have been made
of any great cost, yet the tax levy has
run up to 17- mills, and even now,
when assured by Democratic author
ity tbat the county is out . of debt, the
(tax is 17 mills on the dollar ! Tho dif
ereaea between real I'epnb'ican thrift,
- economy and honesty, and the loud
promised "economy and retrenchment"
of Democracy, in county affairs, is so
glaring that the most simple-minded
can see it. Democracy has promised
"reform and retrenchment,'' with no at
tempt to keep thora promises, so long,
that the people have at last become
aroused to tlie true character of such
promises they simply mean, in the
months of Democratic office-seekers,
double taxation without a correspond,
ing equivalent. -And having found out
ly fad cxperier.ee, the cha rater of Dem
ocratic "reform and retrenchment," they
propose to get rid of it, and take Re
pnbUcan efficiency, honesty and true
economy iu its stead. Mark that.

A few days ago, and the Democrat
was loudly inveighing against the Re
publican ticket ot Marion county, be.
cause, as it asserted, so many of the
candidates hailed from Salem, the county-scat.
It argued that it was not. giv
ing tlie balance ot the county a lair
shew. On exactly the same grounds
the Democrat should argue against the
election of the Democratic ticket of
l 'Ann county, because the entire ticket,
at least all the office in which there is
money, viz : Sheriff, Clerk and Coun
ty Judge, are from Albany, not to m ra
tion the candidates for State Senator,
Surveyor.arid Coroner, all of whom are
citizens of this city. Will tb Demo
crat be consistent for once in its life,
and come out boldly and denounce such
selfishness, and condemn a party tbat is
run entirely in the interest of place-hun
ters, and bitterly opposed to the farm-
iug interest holding any Sees ot profit
or trust? The boot is on Uw other
foot now ; it's the other ox jhat's gored,
and the Democrat hut the moral
courage to denounce what it terms
bggisbnecs, when occurring in the Re
publican party, when a worse case of
the same disease occurs right under his
nose in the Democratic party I

The more we Lear from the different
sections ot the county in regard to the
prospects of our, candidates, the more
we like it. Our candidates are all true,
honest, capable, straightforward men,
with whom the people are well pleaed;
and the more they are canvassed the
better the people like them. Leading
Democrats freely acknowledge the elec
tion of the Republican candidates for
Sheriff,' Treasurer, Couuty' Judge and
Coroner, and are just as free to . ac
knowledge that there is no two to one
bet that we don't elect the entire ticket.
With the full vote of tbe county we
can elect the entire ticket, and tlie ouly
hope of the Democracy ot Linn is that
there will not be a full turn out ot the
Jiopnb'kan voters. There has not been
a full vote of the Republicans of this
county polled for years, but as all the
causes operating and creating tlie indif
ference of former years have all been
wiped out in thiscanvass by the nomina
tion of an unobjectioable ticket through
out, a full Republican vote, teiU be cast
in June, and tlie entire ticket elected,
because the Republicans outnumber
tlieir opponents iu the county. Every
observing, honest Democrat knows this
to be a fact, and many ot them will act
upon it, too.
The Democratic hacks ot Linn coun
ty are in a peck of tear and trouble.
They see old Linu couuty, so long ruled
with an .iron hand by them, about to
slip from tlieir grarp. The history of
tlieir past misrule in this couuty will not
down at tlieir bidding, and they are
catching at every straw to keep them
from sinking. They have even sent to
Washington for Congressional docu
menu to aid them, taping by ringing
tlie charges of corruption against tli4
present Administration to deter inquiry
into their acts of tlie past tew years in
this county. But it won't win.
It is now reported that Doss Tweed
and two companions wintered at Park's
mills, on the Muskoka river, thirty
miles from Midland, Canada. On
Friday, April 28th, two detectives got
cn Tweed's trail and went up to tlie
mill. Tweed and party discovered the
detectives on Saturday in time to escape,
after exclianging shots with them. The
detectives expect to catch the Boss in a
few days, as tliey have a hot trail now.
As tb whole report is contradicted, we
are inclined to think it a hoax.
On Tuesday the grand - jury of the
District Court ot D. C. found a true
bill against Gen. Belknap for receiving
bribes, lie will be duly tried, and,
if found guilty, snffer the penalty of his
crimes, Had lielknap been secretary
of War under a Democratic adminis
tration, judging from tJ records of the
past, he would have simply been per
mitted to retire on an ample fortune

The business of the Government is
suffering for needed appropriations ; ac
tual necessities are denied the Depart
ments, and . great embarrassments are
likely to follow; yet a Democratic
House wastes its time in trying to dis
cover if every dollar spent during the
past fifteen years has gone as far as it
ought to have gone.' In other words
tlie country is suffering fbi needed legis

looking for the fellow who stole the baa;
