We understand thai Rev. Heavenly
K. LTinea preached at Portland a week
ago last Sunday. Now we want it un
derstood that there is nothing mean
about ns, and we are willing to let our
political enemies derive some benefit
from the light of our brilliant intellect.
Besides, it is barely possible that the
sparkling idea we are about to suggest
is, in a manner, of divine inspiration.
(Bro. Hineshas taught us to look above
this earth for our political motives and
What we have to suggest is this :
That the election of Bro. Hinea to Con
gress and the establishment of his Heav
enly Kingdom might both be farthered
at one and the same time by a judicious
prosecution of the canvass. Arrange
' ments might be made with the various
Methodist churches throughout the
Stateby whicnBrr.Hinesmightbeadte -
tised to preach as he traveled from place
to place on the stump, it being understood
that the collection taken up on tbese
occasions be divided into two equal
shares, the one to be applied to the
work of the church and the oilier to go
toward defraying the election expenses
of the reverend gentleman in question.
And it might also be wise to secure the
prayers fcf the church for the success of
the Republican party.
One Dr. Felkmunn is running a Ger
man campaign shewt at Portland in the
interest of the Republicans. From the
looks of the concern it doesn't cost
much to run it, and from what our
German friends tell us its icfluenca is
about commensurate with the cost of
the, gratuitar.s concern. The Radicals
are resorting to base uses when they
hire a man to use his pen and tongue
to abuse the confidence and mislead the
votes of otir foreign born citizens.
THE UvAVCK F I)L(tl(Y.
A. friend writes us from Baker coun
ty as follows : "You can safely put
down Baker as Democratic the coming
election. I have been letting some oi
my Republican neighbors read your
paper, and two of them tell me they
will vote our ticket this year. We are
tfioroughly uuited here, and well pleased
trit our State and county ticket."

One of the resolutions of the Radi
cal State Platform denounces "th 2 ac
tion of Gov. G rover whereby ha at

rotes of Oregon to Tiltlen !"
And this by a crew who connived at
and endorsed tho electoral steal of 1 7
votes from the Southern States for
Hayes when tier rightfully belonged

Those Radical scions of Oregon well

the claim was broadly asserted under

that the acts of thoso who counted

gross the fraud, a blow was struck at
the very life-principles cf the nation,
from which it is suffering to-day. The

"Beek" ia bound to make himself
known, anyhow. He declined himself
into the nomination by publishing a
card beforehand that he wouldn't have
it, and then telegraphed a vainglorious
stump speech to the Convention, rfie
eepting the nomination aad telling that
body what his "strict business qualifi
cations" would do in the office of Gov
ernor ; and now he is out in the paj-ers
with a self-laudatory letter full cf ego
tistical promises and extravagant pledges
to the people.
In the meantime Jiule Thayer at

leaves the people of Oregon, ttho have
known him so long and well, to judge
of his fitness and qualifications for the
office of Governor, ire will talk to
the people on this subject during the
campaign in a legitimate manner, and

HELP FOK MITCHELL.
Our fellow townsman, David Fro-
man, who was elected Chairman of the
Republican State Central Committee,
evidently doesn't feel very enthusiastic,
and has consequently delegated one Si
mon, cf Portland, to do the henry work
of the campaign. As Simon is of the
firm of Dolph, Simon & Co., the Mitch

the w-ark will be well and faithfully

We see that Bill Turner, of Jackson
ville, has been writing a very fine pufi
for Beek man and causes it to first ap
pear in the Yreka (Cal.) Journal, from
whence the Oregon Radical sheets
snatch it with enthusiastic slopovera-
tiveness. It is a good notice, and we'll
bet when Bill read it to "Beek," before
he forwarded it to the Journal for pub
lication, there was an immediate stam

Monday's Orcyonian contains a letter
signed by twenty-eight prominent Eo
publicans of Marion county, addressed
to "Republican candidates for the Lejis
lature of Marion count)" asking said
candidates to declare themselves openly
whether or not, if elected to the Legis
lature, they will favor Mr. Mitchell's
re-election to the United States Senate.
We admiro the courage, and believe
in the sincerity .of these men. They
are gentlemen whose Republicanism
cannot bo brought into question; but
who feel compelled by their own self
respect, and their desiro to witness the
prosperity of their State, to oppose the
re-election cf a bad aniV dishonest man
who has determined to increase his own
wealth and power at the expense of the
people and without regard to either his
own personal honor and inegrity, or the
welfare and prosperity of his constitu
We are always glad to believe in the
honesty of purpose of our political oppo
nents; and are more than willing to
admit tho consistency of the action of
those twenty-eight gentlemen.
There are, we know, many other Re
publicans in this and other ceunties, as
well as in Marion, who can see through
the corruption and bad faith of this
man Mitchell. To all of these we
would hold up the example of these
twenty-eight of Marion.
The only way to secure the defeat of
Mitchell is to insist upon the candidates
for tho Legislature declaring whether
or not they will, if elected, vote to send
hini again to the United States Senate;
and then refuse to vote for any man to
the Legislature who may decline unu"
qnivoeally to answer the question.
If thoso Republicans, who declare
themselves opposed to Mr. Mitchell are
sincere, it is in their power to prevent
his going again to Washington, there to
sell out and disgrace the peopln of Ore
gon. We commend to our Linn county
Republican readers the closing para
graph of this letter for their perusal
and consideration. It reads ai follows:
Tha recent eourss of Senator Mitche:! in opposing
measures we decru of vital imTwrtanee to Orey hi, and
bis subser.iwiey to th? irrc-at ra lixsul monopoli.-w who
are trying to defeat the Northern Pae.fic Ratlrtad,
make it imiieralic!y necessary that yonr position
th-xild ba plainly and anmistakauly uudIrtood.
And now let us see if the Republi
cans of Linn have the courage and hon
esty to projound similar questions to
their Legislative candidates. If they
should do so we predict that at least
four of those candidates will not and
dare not give an unequival answer to
this question, as they are unquestiona
bly pledged to Mitchell's interest.
Let the test be made, and if we have
done those men a wrong wo will gbvily
make the amende honorable.
B ULGO AD TALK.
A meeting of the Incorporators of
the Albany, Lebanon and Brownsville
R. R. Co. was held in this city last
Monday, at which Hon. D. P. Thouip
son, of Portland, was present. The
question of grading and tieing the road
and turning it over to Mr. Thompson
or some other capitalist who would stock
the read and run it was discussed, but
as there was no definite proposition
made to the Incorjiorators from these
paifies it was agreed that the matter of
soliciting stock under the original plan
should proceed, and that the people of
our own county would build and own
the road. This plan seems to meet
with more general favor than any other
yet advanced, ami will most probably
be the one carried out.
We now earnestly ask our Linn coun
ty citizens to take hold of the matter
and push it through. This is one of
the most important local enterprises
ever started on the Pacific coast, and
will be the best paying investment ever
made ; and we urge upon our people
the necessity of pushing it to an early
CI F.SS XT.

comprising its county ticket, says each

day, and our ticket, being unobjection

ed men that if trading and swapping is
not resorted ta we will elect the entire
ticket by a handsome majority.
Devr do it.
We understand that already proposi
tions have been made to trade off two
or three candidates on our ticket. This
kind of a business is wrong and is de
cidedly undemocratic, and we hope it
will meet with no favor from Demo
crats. V e have a good round majority
in Linn and can elect our whole ticket
handsomely if the party stands square
ly by the nominees, but if the perni
cious system of trading and " dickerin"
is resorted to by any of the candidates
or their friends, then there is no telling
what the result may be. If trades are
made on one candidate it may natural
ly be inferred that the business will not

how they should do it. The proprietor
of that journal has regularly issued
a paper in tho interest of that party

against great odds nnd with little en
couragement antl les3 support, and it
does seem to .us that if there is any
balance in the .way of obligations the
weight is against the Radioal party
and in Van's favor. There is no Re
publican paper in the State that has
struggled along and existed tinder such
adverse circumstances as Van's, and we
don't blame him if he now asks ffr
some substantial aid from those who
may hopo to be benefitted by his sup-
ort. And we suppose they would
give it if they had any hope of success
in tho election, but being utterly hope
less of victory they can't afford even to
help their most earnest and gallant sol
diers in the unequal combat.
aOt U ADVICE.
The East Orejonian gives some good
advice to tho Democrats of Umatilla
county, and as the same may fit sonle
of our Linn county Democrats, we give
it: "Let every Democrat stand to his
colors, vote the whole ticket and all
will bo well. Remember the bloody
shirt 8 to 7 count, and although you
may feel that you have not been fairly
dealt with, for God's sakedon't go ever
to the ranks of the enemy, for what
can you expect there. When you cry
for bread they will give you a stone.
It has been the rule of that party to
gobblo everything, and you can expect
the same treatment at this time."
That lively, newsey, snappish little
Democratic paper, the Eoseburg Star n
on its ear because Republican exchanges
are trying to tell it who Beekman is.
It is useless for any Republican ta
attempt to tell us who C. C. Beekman
is ; we have known him ever since he
came to this State. "Beek," as he is
familiarly known, has made a fortune
in this State, and at present is a bank
er of Jacksonville. Although he got
all his money in Oregon, he has seldom
made a legitimate investment within the
State but confines himself to the busi
ness of buying gold-dust, discounting
notes, and participating in jobs, no
matter how disreputable, where he can
mate a uonar. tin is Known Here
not very favorably, we are constrained
to admit; as the person who purchased
the $15,000 Road Warrants from
Douglas county. He has neither relig
ious nor politial principles, but has
been a Republican just so far as it di
rectly interested "Beek," and as to his
"peculiar fitness for the otfice for which
he was nominated" we have been un
able to discover. It is true he has had
some experience, having at one time
been President of the Board of Trustees
of the town of Jacksonville, but even
in that capacity he failed to impress
any one with his "executive ability."
The only claim he bad on the Repub
lican party was his connection with
several powerful rings, which alone se
cured him the nomination for Governor.
and in the event of his election these
rings will have to be sustained at the
expense of the people of Oregon. In
deed, it looks too much like a repetition
of the Woods administration to meet
with success at the bands of the vo
ters of this State.
