HON. E G. GEORGE,
Upon the Issues of the Day, and
our Local Interests.
The Court House was densely, packed,
on last Saturday afternoon, with citizens
of Albany and vicinity, of every shade and
complexion ot political belief, gathered to
hear the vTews on political and local topics
of onr chosen standard-bearer, Hon. M. C
George. The speaker was introduced by
Judge Powell in a tew well-chosen remarks,
and proceeded nt once to business. Mr.
George premised his remarks hy saying
that to "lance over so many familiar fices
reminded him of home. It had become
his duly, in response to the call ot the Re-
...i.li.viii Convention, to travel over tlie
entire Suite, the better to become acquaint
ed with the special needs and interests of
the several sections of the State, ne
would not en back into the past and tear
open afresh the wounds of tlie fratricidal
J struggle, when brother was arrayed against
I brother, and neighbor against neighbor in
deadly strife. He would hnry tljat sad
record in eternal oblivion. When the
j people, seeking to remedy tlie official
corruption which the great commotion ot
the civil war, naturally and of necessity
brought to the surface, placed the Dem
ocrats again in power fi Congress, the
Democratic pa.-ty became again the party
of action and not ot mere theories, and as
such Is open to criticism. He proceeded
to expoe in a masterly manner the true
Inwardness of the extra session. He be
lieves the uiases, whether Democratic or
Republican, are honest aud sincere in their
actions and convictions. He has faith in
American civilization and in American
citizens, both Northern and Southern.
He paid a glowing tribute to the devotion
and heroism of the rank and file of the
Southern eano, who laid their lives a
sacrifice on the altar of devotion to their
j political lelief. What he had to say was
not in condemnation of the masses of the
j Democratic party,
but he believed thej
had been misled. He fears the influence
of Democrats who are looking out, not
for the riahts and interests of the people,
but of tbeir own pockets and power. He
said when caucuses and partisan politics
endanger the liberties of the people, down
with caucuses and partisans forever. He
alluded to the shot-gun tactics and intimi
dation process as operating to consolidate
tbe solid South. The Democratic party ot
the North had been used as the mere tool
of the solid South. In 1SG3 the State of
New York was carried tor Seymour by
30.000 fraudulent ballots, in tho city ot
New York, under the management of
Ross Tweed, Oakey Hall and their pals.
Besides the solid South the I arty needs
but a few Northern electoral vote. Hence
the importance ot controlling a few of the
great cities. Cutting off" the soirth end of
Indiana where 14 per cent, of the voters
cannot read or write, aud giving 10.000
Democratic majoHty, and the Five Points
district of New York city, Seymour would
not have received a single Northern electo
ral vote. He briefly explained the super
vision law, passed on account of the gl:ir-'
ing frauds in New York city in 18(38, to
supervise elections and spot fraud so as to
secure fairness. This was the great object
of Democratic attack and assault in the ex
tra session, because imperiling the success
of the Democratic leaders by and through
fraud. The same object was aimed at In
regard to the law for supervising elections
in the South by V. S. Marshals. It is by
existing law a criminal offense to use
military force at the polls for any purpose
but to preserve peace thereat. He would
like to know the danger of U. S. military
Interference when there were no U. S.
soldiers to interfere. There were only
3,000 soldiers east of Omaha, of whom
only a few hundred were stationed in
Southern States in many of which there
were none. He related the fact that the
only authentic case ot military interference
at elections that ever occurred in the
United States was by order of Gen. Geo.B.
McClellan, who was the idolized standard
bearer ot the Democracy for the Presidency
in 1864, and who gave orders to his subor
dinates in 18G1 to stop disloyal persons
from voting at an election in Maryland.
He is opposed to large standing armies in
time ot peace, but we need to have soldiers
enough to protect settlers on the frontiers
from Indian outrages. He believed the
army, the elections and all sliould be
under the control of law, and the law
under the control of the good sense and
sound reason of the masses of the people,
ne believed in State Rights as strongly as
any Democrat in the land. By our Con
stitution the control of all national affairs
had been given to the general government;
purely local affairs to the States, and all
purely personal affairs to the discretion of
the individual people. It is essential that
the rights and constitutional prerogative
of the States should be piotected. When
ever they are nsnrped and overridden our
Government is a failure and our liberties
at an end. If ever the Republican party
should take a position inimical to State
Rights as contemplated by the Constitu
tion, he would denounce it ; but the per
nicious doctrine ot State Sovereignty Is
the baneful parent of secession, disorder
and anarchy, the mere prelude to over-
throw, despotism aud eternal enslavement
of the people. This he clearly illnsttatcd.
Tlie Constitution has provided tlie general
imvonimput as the common judge to
preside over and regulate the several
States, each the peer of the other, and
sovereign as related to each other, but
subordinate to the supreme constitutional
federal direction. Among these Constitu
tional powers ot the general government
he held the right to regulate the election
of the Senators and Representatives con
stituting its general legislative assembly,
that Is, Congress. It is conceded by
Democratic precedents that Congress lias
power to regulate times holding congress
ional elections. Then It also followa that
It has power to regulate the manner like
wise.. He handled several of tbe buncombe,
blood-and-thnuder resolves of the Dem
ocratic platform without gloves, and
iv,-rvhe!n;e! JI;eiii 'with deserved ridicule,
in fact, the fool element In the Democratic
presentation is so preponderant over even
the death's-head and bloody cross-bones
aspect of it, t hat the speaker could hardly
touch its oracular resolves nt any point
without convulsing his auditors with Irre
pressible men-iment. He showed up the
true Inwardness of the Democratic tactics
ofhe extra session in tacking political
legislation upon the appropriation bills,
and paiiegyrizort the pat! lot ie firmness and
consistency of President Hayes.
Tlie Democratic br'gadiers had to back
down after all, and the election laws tand
unrepealed to-day. Said he ; "Some
may shy they didut back down. Well,
however that may be, I gness there was
a good deal more strain on the breeching
than on the collar along toward the last."
He made several humorous hits on
White ikers historic ride across the conti
nent, on canned provisions, to vote tor
Jim Blackburn, and his memorable and in
tact only, so fir as known, speech on the
subject or Blackburn's proposition to wipe
out all the war legislation. Mr. fienrm
disclaimed any intention of misrepresent
ing or. taking any advantage of Gov.
Whiteaker in his absence. I Would soy
nothing about him other than complimen
tary, excepting his public record : but he
challenged anybody to mention any bill
that had been passed, introduced or drafted
by him In his whole term extra session
and all. 'lie scathed the member for his
reprehensible inaction or Incapacity in
having done absolutely nothing for Ore
gon's local interests her commerce and
industrial interests which need so much
attention. He rightly said, and the au
dience endorsed him, that the people of
Oregon are siek and tired of partisan legis
lation. We want more attention to the
interests ot the people and less to the ag
grandizement of politicians. He should
look out for our narrow gauge railroads
and onr I. road gauge railroads, our har
bors, etc. He then gave his views in re
gard to the vast internal improvements
needed hy our State, lie had lived in
Oregon 25 years, and was proud to be call
ed a "Linn coiiutv bov." His interests
nthl affections are with the people of this
comity, and Democrats and Republicans
alike know it. In the nominating con
vention his I.inti county friends stood by
him first, last, and all the time. Tie
he friendship of Ms early associates and
old neighbors, and repelled with indigna
tion any imputation that he would mis
represent meir interests. lie called at
tention to an improvement he deemed
essential ana necessary to the interests of
this particular section. , He believed in a
narrow gauge railroad to
and the improvement of that harbor,
and would exert his utmost effoits ii: Con
gress to seenre those lienelits, just- as he
had done when in the State Legislature
as a member from the eounty ot Multno
mah. He was under no ' pledge except
such pledges as he made openly and pub
Hcly from the rostrum. He related the
history of the Yaquiua Bay measure that
passed the State Legislature through his
efforts when a member fiom Portland.
He thought Whiteaker'j sudden activity
in the Yaquina Bay matter ju-t before the
election, looked too suspicious. He criti
cised that gentleman's inaction in not hav
ing brought forward the matter earlier, in
time to have got it through before this
present election. He feared the $40,000
item in the appropriation budget would be
forgotten after the election was over. It
looks bad, yet he hopes the item will pas.
If it did it would be no more than duty on
Whiteaker's part. He referred very fclic
itiotisly to tho
made ngak.st him that' he was a young
man. In the Southern part ot the State
he had dissembled what he could and hail
hoodwinked the people by a display of a
few artihcia gray hairs procured for the
purpose, but here lie was too well known
to pass that dodge, and so he would square
ly acknowledge and own up that he is
young man. aud, unfortunately, it is
difficulty he has labored under all his life,
But he would venture to make one prom
ise : Give him time enough and he will
be as old as anybody. He concluded with
a tew earnest words or endorsement tor his
brethren, the other candidates on the ticket
After passing a fervent eulogy on Judges
Watson, Waldo and Lord, the respective
candidates for the Supremo bench, Mr.
George closed his most eloquent, forcible
and sensible address by thanking his au
dience for their earnest attention, and ex
pressing regrets that his appointment
would not permit bis longer tarrying with
Mr. George's address held the eager and
unwearied attention of the entire audience
to the close. ' It was a manly, clear, out
spoken and forcible exposition of the status
of the leading political issues ol the day.
and in particular of the local issues that
are of vital concern to us of the Willamette
Valley. His arraignment of the culpable
inactivity and delinquency ot the present
Representative was just and fitting. The
people of the upper Willamette require an
explanation from that gentleman that
nothing has been attempted in regard to
the Yaquina Bay improvement, which our
Interests demands, until just a few days
before the election, for political buncombe,
when action cannot be taken until the cri
sis is over, when it can be Ignored with im
punity. Such a course cannot be too
strongly denounced. The past reputation
of Mr. George for industry and persistency
as well as the vigor and energy which ' he
brings to every .work which he undertakes.
his eminent ability as a worker and speak
er, disinterested fidelity and sound good
sense, are guarantees that he will prove
one ot the most, it not the most, efficient
and successful workers for the real Interests
ot Oregon In Congress, ot all tlie represen
tatives she has ever sent there. Linn coun
ty is especially fortunate iu his selection,
and lie will be elected by a sweeping ma
jority throughout the State
Pendleton will soon have

The office ot county Ja lge is the most
important office in the county. We have
said this before, but it Is a truth that can
not be too often Impressed npon the minds
of voters. The office requires to be filled
by a man of more than ordinary ability,
possessing a sound judgrncnt.good common
sense, and who will honestly and fearless
ly discharge hi duties. I offering Judge
Flint! naVnnr candidate for the office ot
County Judge, every requisite here men
tioned is filled. In ability he Is the peer
otany lawyer in ;he district, and during a
long and most successful practice, he has
gained the reputation of being perfect in
all probate matters. Judge Flinn is a ripe
scholar, a close student, an indefatigable
worker, and iu his hands the Interests of
the county ami its taxpayers will be safe.
Judge Flinn di l not seek the ofllce, and it
was only after tlie urgent reqnest ot our
best citizens that he consented to become a
candidate. The salary attached to the
office of County Judge Is not at all com
mensurate with the duties and labor of the
office, and it is really a sacrifice to Judge
Flinn to give up his large and profitable
practice ft snch an office. But he con
sented to become a candidate tor the office
for reasons suited above, and while to him
financially, it will be a loss should he be
elected, it Is of greatest importance to the
taxpayers that he should fill the office.
If the taxpayers of Linn di-sire a decrease
Ot taxation it Is absolutely necessary that
a change of administration in its affairs
sl.ould take place ; it is of the utmost con
sequence that a mail who thoroughly un
derstands county affairs, is duly posted at
all law points, who is personally interest
ed as a property holder, and has the nerve
to say 'no' to any measure calculated to
waste the revenues of the county, should
be elected to fill the office. We offer just
such a man iu Judge Flinn, a-iki ask the
serious attention of voters to these facts.

A Bad .Selection.
The selection of Port Orford as the point
for constructing the harbor of refuge,
should the selection not be set aside, will
prove disastrous to Oregon s interests. It
wit. require ten or fifteen millien dollars
and a quarter of a centurv in It ranntrne.
Hon . auu when completed, it will be al
most valueless for the purposes for which
the improvement was demanded. But the
greatest objection is that the immense
annual appropriations from the national
treasury to keep the work going, will de
prive Oregon of any other aid whatever
until its completion. The selection is pe
culiarly unfortunate, and is so regarded
all over the State. A more unfavorable
point could not have been selected on the
entire coast. We hope that Congress will
eall in the $150.000 appropriated to com
mence the work and condemn the selection
A point could and should have been select

The candor and fairness with which Hon
M. O. George treated all questions in his
speech on Satnrday in this city, received
the highest encomiums of the many Demo
crats present on the occasion. Ami we
venture the assertion that Ilia handsome
maimer In which lie rt-ferred to Gov
vt hiteaker has not a counterpart in the
political history of the State. He said
that so far as the charge of bribery against
Mr. Whiteaker was concerned, he knew
nothing ; I he charge was made hy promi
nent. Democrats ; he (George) personally
had no knowledge of any snch transaction.
Mr. George is whining golden opinions hy
the conscientious fairness with which he
is conducting the canvass. We want just
such honest, fair minded, conscientious,
able men in our legislative halls as Hon.
M.O.George ami tbe more we have of
them the better for the peace, honor aud
tranquility ot our country.

In regard to the local interests ot the State,

Government, among other thing, the Im

It will not escape attention that the pres
ent system ot representation in the national
Republican 'Convention does not allow
the proper measure of influence to those
sections which must be relied npon for
the votes of the Republican nominee.
Thus fifteen Southern States, all of which
are hopelessly Democratic, send 270 Re
publican delegates, or within thirty dele
gates ol as many as fifteen strong Republi
can State are entitled to. The fifteen
Republican States will cast 150 electoral
votes for the Republican nominee, while
not a Republican electoral vote can with
any certainty be estimated to be cast by
eitlier of the fifteen Sotitliern States. Yet
their 270 delegates, combined with a
meagre minority of the de'egates from the
Northern States, may determine the nomi
nation tor Piesident.
In Congress political plof ing seems to
have given place to some extent to the
hard work of the session, and its accumu

the attention of the members. Oregon is
looking forward to the passage of a bill
that will insure the payment of the river

It is idle to expect much from our present

them back to their former cunning, and

have only a small railroad. This makes

said he would not lie mean about it. he
would take the smallest one.
