It begins to look as though a great
many good democrats didn't lose any
thing in the way of sffica by dying
some years ago. Chicago Nezos.
"Dan" Manning will be the boss of
the cabinet. If he needs any assist
ance W. C. Whitney will bestow it
Ireely. Endicott will tlo the deport
ment. Vilas can be depended upon
for orations. Bayard, Lamar and
Garland will do ihe thinking. Cin
cinatti Commercial Gazette.
From the best information to be
gained it seems that there are several
very important matters of legislation
which were not pushed at the last ses
sion of the legislature to a complete
solution and proper determination in
cluding the subjects of assessments
and taxation and the law appropri
ating the fund3 with which to build a
fish ladder at the Oregon City Falls is
in such shape that it is quite certain
that :no cne can be found who can or
will build the ladder under the present
Jaw without amendment; besides sev
eral other subjects of great importance
to the people which teed additional
legislation. The questions of assess
ments and taxation is in a very bung
ling shape as it now exists under the
law and if the commission authorized
by the last legislature to consider these
questions and report a solution thereof
out of which a liw may be formd
could report during the coming fall,
and as the legislature did not elect a
United States Senator it seems like
perhaps it might be well for a special
session of the legislature to be called to
meet next fall to consider and pat"
upon the neccessary questions of legis
lation and at the snme time elect a
United States Senator.
The executive committee ef the
Civil Service Reform Association of
Maryland adopted a resolution, saying:
"The selection of Eugene Higgins for
the responsible position of appoint
ment clerk of the treasury department
kas been a paip-fu! surprise to this asso
ciation and all the friends of honest
government in the State of Maryland,
and is explicable only on the supposi
tion that the secretary of the treasury
was ignorant of the character and an
tecedents of the person chosen. That
the Civil Service reform Association of
Maryland urgently suggests his imme
diate removal therefrom, giving as a
cause for such action, that his reputa
tion in this community is not that of a
man of integrity and honor."
A Washington special to the Chicago
Tribune says: Vice President Hen
dricks and Senator Vorhees have had
an interview with the President, in
which they tried .to pe.rsuade him that
he ought to move promptly in patting
republicans out and filling their places
with democrats. They presented all
the argunents of party policy and of
doctrine to the victors belongs the
spoils. President Cleveland heard
them through and told them plainly
that he intended to carry out the
propositions he had set forth in his let
ter on the civil service and the declara
tion of his inaugural on the same sub
ject. He held the party by its civil
service law to be bound to an honest
effort to carry its principles into effect.
Both Hendricks and Voorhees dis-snt-ted
most emphatically from the position
of the president, and especially from
.the pnrpose he announced of making
changes very slowly and except in
those classes of offices which everyone
expects to change almost at once with
an administration, making them only
for causes. The president's views, if
.carried out, will not, speaking general
ly, give the offices to the democrats
much faster than commissions expire.
And so the democratic spoils hunters
are disapppointed because they cannot
.secure the post offices.
Four thousand saloons in Illinois
have been closed by the Harper high
license law, and tax-payers are saved
jtwo million dollars a year by it.
Editor Corvallis Gazette:
Dear Sir: The Benton Leader in
its last issue in answering an article
published in Gazette denying charges
made in Leader against J. D. Lee says
"The paragraph which caused the
furore was almost a verbatim copy of
a statement made t us by a prominent
and leading republican." The Editor
of the Leader lias said on the streets of
Corvallis chat these charges were made
by W. P. Keady. Now as Mr. Keady
and Mr. Lee are warm personal friends,
the Leader man will pardon us for
saying that we think it extremely
doubtful if Mr. Keady or any other
republican ever made such charges
more anon. Republican.
SUCE CRIMES SHOULD CEASE.
As there seems to be a wanton and
malicious disposition with some persons
to destroy property not their own, de
face buildings, sign boards and other
people's property generally, for the
information of this class of criminals
we publish the sections of our statute
making such offenses punishable and
we would advise the perpetrators of
such deeds that they can remain good
law abiding citizens more easily than
become criminals by damaging and de
stroying other people's property. The
statute is in the following words:
Skc. 575. If any person shall mali
ciously or wantonly cut down, destroy
or injure any bush, shrub, fruit or
other tree not his own, standing or
growing for fruit, ornamental or other
useful purpose, or shall wilfully break
the glass in, or deface any building not
his own, or shall wilfully break down
or destroy any fence or hedge belong
ing to, or enclosing land not his own,
or shall wilfully throw down, or open
and leave down or open any bars, gate
or fence or hedge belonging to, or en
closing land not his own, or shall mali
ciously or wantonly sever from the
land of another, any produce thereof,
such person, upon conviction thereof,
shall be pai-ished by imprisonment in
the county jail, not less that three
months, nor more than one year, or
by fine not less than ten dollars, nor
more than five hundred dollars.
Sec. 576. If any person shall wil
fully break down, injure, lemove or
destroy any monument erected or used
for the purpose of designating the
boundary of any town, tract or parcel
of land, or any tree marked for that
purpose, or shall wilfully break down,
injure, remove or destroy any mile
stone, board or post, or any guide or
finger-board, erected or placed upon
any road or highway; or shall wilfully
alter or deface the inscription upon any
such stone post or board; or shall wil
fully extinguish any lamp, or break,
injure, destroy or remove any lamp,
lamp post, sign or sign-post, or any
railing or posts erected upon any strtet,
highway, sidewalk, court or passage,
such person, upon conviction thereof,
shall be punished by imprisonment in
the county jail, not less than three
months, nor more than one year, or by
fine not less than ten dollars, nor more
than five hundred dollars.
The Benton Jjtader of March 12th,
says: "We do not intend to get in a
squabble with the Gazette because we
(refering to the Leader) are not ac
complished at mud throwing. Person
al feelings and little inuendoes have no
place in a newspaper, they should be
settled between man and man, not bur
den the public with them." The same
issue of that paper has the following
words, to wit: "It seems to be a mat
ter of general congratulation among
both democrats and republicans that
Flax brake Williams failed to make
the "rifle" for 'United States Senator."
Whether the above quotation has any
thing like mud throwing or contains
anything of personal feelings or little
inuendoes we leave to the judgment
and edification of the reading public.
One thing certain so far as it refers to
democrats dislike to Geo. H. Williams
it is true, because some of them hate
him worse than they do a rattle snake,
because he stood on the side of and for
his country during the hours of the re
bellion, voting men and money to put
down armed treason, while others hate
him because his republicanism is true
blue and because his ability being far
ahead of any other man in the State,
gives him a power in behalf of repub
lican principles and right when in a
public position like that of United
States Senator. Other democrats de
spise him because of his supreme
ability when on the stnmp affords op
portunity to tell and show the demo
cratic party what they are and have
been so clearly that many of the in
dividual members of the party are
almost persuaded to hire a small boy
to kick them because they cannot hate
him worse, then out of about every
hundred republicans there is about one
who belongs to the corporation and
ring factions who do not like ex-senator
Geo. H. Williams, because they knav
they can not use him and mould his
actions like "clay in thepotter'shands."
These kind of men wiether republicans
or democrats don't like to see anv good
and able man like Williams elected for
United States Senator, but they want
a tool which they can convert to their
own private use and if they desire,
against the interests of the people.
The assertion quoted is false when re
ferring to ninety-nine out of each hun
dred of the solid and substantial men
of the republican party because they
are unanimously in favor of Geo. H.
Williams for United States Senator.
Since the beginning of the Senatorial
question in the recent legislature the
writer has talked with a large number
of prominent republicans of this county
on the Senatorial question and he has
the first one yet to find who did not
heartily agree that Geo. H. Williams
was preeminently the most appropriate
man for United States Senator at the
Hall of Philomath Lo.lge, I. O. G. T.,
No. 435, February 28th, 1885.
Resolved, That we tender the thanks of
this Lodge to our Senators and Representa
tives for their able and efficient labors in
procuring for us such wholesome temperance
law? at the last session of the Oregon Legis
lature. Ordered, that a copy of the above
resolution be sent to the Corvallis Gazette
and Benton county Leader for publication.
