"THE AUEtlF HtASON.
' The boy that went to the mill on horse
back, carrying the gnst in one end of the
bag and n stone in the other, when reprov
ed by tiie miller, and told to divide the
grist replied that his futhcraifcrtf anatatber
had carried that way, and he being no bet
ter than they, should continue to do as they
did. Similar, or equally as absurd, reasons
are accounted as sufficient bv some to war
rant them iu indiscriminately condemning
ur. irierce s Jictticiiies. even tnougit there
is overwhelming proof that they possess
the merit claimed for thetn. For many

As a reason why Democracy should suc
ceed to the control of the General Goveru
met, Democratic leaders and journals point
with pride and satisfaction to the results
wherever the party has iiad control. In
the city of New York, for instance, in the
hands and nnder the control of Democracy
for years, the most marked results "have
been attained. Tweed, riming. tils reign.
stole untold millions - of money. But
Tweed was ousted, and in hi stead .that
pure offspring ol Democracy, ffce Tamma
ny ring, has controlled inunicipal affairs.
Since Tammany took charge, i Democracy
points with pride to the fact thajt tLe debt
of the city bad nearly doubled! And this
is what the Democracy mean when they
cry "honesty and reform I" It is all right
and everything is lovely when Democrats
are privileged to "lift" tie public money.
Here in Oregon, where Democracy has liad
control of the State government Tor nearly
eight years, the constitutional limit of $ 50,
000 indebtedness has been overridden near
ly a million dollars, while nearly every
officer and appointee nnder the State gov
ernment has managed, under various pre
texts, to draw from the State treasury
many times the amounts to which they
were entitled, or which the . constitution
ever contemplated they should -receive.
rThrough the management of'grants" made
by the party now tn power, the school fund,
which should have been held sacred above
all other State funds, has been shorn of its
proportions at a ""tremendous rate. The
people ot Oregon have but to continue the
"good old Democratic party tn ; power a
few years longer, and there won't be
enough lett of the school funds to furnish
one day's beer for the school board, and
the general Indebtedness of the State will
i be increased to such a vast amount that
even tho "rcdhotest" Democrat In all that'
State will point "with pride to the achieve'
ments of the good old Democratic party.
Let us cultivate this tealty and love of the
"good old Democratic party" even 'here In'
Oregon, for it has accomplished, measur
ing its accomplishments by the' opportunW
ties offered, as much as Tammany has for'
Vjw "Vri-L- Z. it )iia froq ttwl mn Immnnu arut'
burdensome debt, for jwhlch none, save the'
State officials, can sliow a corresponding'
benefit. Let us by all means stand by Ujj
good old party that upholds its officials la'
securing all they can . hlle in office, no
matter how much the burdens ot the pec "
pie may be increased thereby I
Never weary in well-doing. .' ' '
