And during this state of affairs the.
Cleveland democratic administration
destroys the only private ship building
yard in the United States in order to
favor English built ships, and to grati
parfcy political spleen.
The sneak policy and cowardly
dodge of "Offensive Partisanship," un
der which the administration is trying
to put its friends into the offices, lacks
every element of manliness and is
deceiving nobody, says the Eugene
Register. Better turn them out simply
because they are republicans, else ex
ecute the civil service Uw honestly.

The Hon. Geo. H. Williams is now
and has been fur some time, the choice
of ninety republicans out cf every one
hundred for United States Senator
from Oregon. And had it not been for
the confusion in the last legislature, on
the question of senator, and the decided
opposition of democrats to the election
of Williams, he would have been elect
ed at the last session. He was opposed
by democrats, because as they said,
they preferred any other man to him,
for the simple reason that Wiiiiains
was a true republican, and with his
ability, standing and experience, Jie
could do their party great and. irrspar
able damage. For these reasons they
opposed him more than they would a
rattlesnake. For the same reasons
which prompt democrats to oppose him,
are the best reasons in the world, by
all means, why he is the first ohoice of
Ourcity govern men t has again shown
an utter disregard of the interests of
the tax payers in their poorly consid
ered action in placing a hydrant at the
corner of the street at Jacobs & Neu
gass' store on second street. The city
has one of her largest cisterns in the
center of the crossing at this street, be
sides all of the other hydrants, three in
numbei, are in reach of this corner
while there are a hundred other places
in the city which need hydrants before
the place indicated. If the city is
going to establish the precedent and
folltvr it up of putting four hydrants
in reach of all property where her lar
gest cisterns are, it will prove a dear
tax to her citizens. At Nolan's cor
ner, at Tho's Graham's corner and a
hundred places besides in the city where
there are no chances of protection by
the fire department for lack of water,
there should be placed hydrants before
establishing the new one where it is.
If the city government acts sensible in
this matter it seems like they should
have this hydrant moved where it will
protect unprotected property; in this
way the citizens will feel like they are
getting something for their money.
Since the present democratic admin
istration has ruined John Roach, in
the interests of England, because
Roach was the owner and operator of
the principal shipbuilding interests in
the United States which offered any
thing like opposition to English ship
building; Secretary Whitney has at
last found that government ships which
Roach was working on at the time the
government failed and refused to pay
him, cannot be completed in the gov
ernment's ship yards within from thirty
to forty per cent, of what the same
work can be done for in Roach's ship
yard with the latter's hands and appli
ances, and yet the democratic hypocrit
ical cry has heen that John Roach had
been and was yet the recipient of soft
contracts under republican rule. For
this and other flimsy excuses the dem
ocratic pa ty has crushed ne of thr
largest establishments and one of the
oest an 1 most useful industries which
the United States could have. This
great democratic party pretends to be
the friend of the poor man vhen the
very life and vital interests of the poor
man are being crushed in accordance
with the wishes of England, the foreign
foe to our industries, whereby she
.visiies to reduce and degrade Ameri
can labor and American laborers to the
level of the pauper labor of England.
The democratic party , which during
the last presidential campaign, promised
so much to acrue to make the country
prosperous,is having an opportunity to
do its work. Instead of the great in
creased prosperity which was promised,
we find under a democratic administra-ti-u
all over the United States, that
the value of all kinds of property ex
cept money, is declined in value. Mon
ey, the one kind of property, which the
rich man generally has in abundance,
is gradually going upvard in value,
land, stock of all kinds, grain, wool,
everything which the poor man depends
upon; n Itheonc -prospeiousfarmers re
duce is gradually going down in value.
All kinds of business in the United
States is in such a torpid condition that
manufactories all over the land are
compelled to shut down because they
are losing money, and thus thousands
upon thousands of people who depend
upon daily labor for bread are thrown
out of employment. And yet we are
told that the democratic theory of
'tariff for revenue only," and other
kindred crazes, would bring prosperity
to the country, and now since a death
blow to the ship building insertsts of
United States has been struck by the
democratic admini .(ration, prosperity
and renewed energy should bein at
once. During the twenty-four years of
republican administration such depress
ed and stagnate;! conditions of business
was never heard of, even through the
days of reconstruction followed the ill
effects of the war, times were prosper
ous compared with the preseut. Du
ring the administration of the republi
can party, none of the manufactories or
th. general industries of the country
were suspended except for a short time,
which in a few weeks were always
started up again with renewed energy
and prosperity. In 1860 when the
deniocrotic party we:it out of power,
every kind of property was so depress
ed in value and the rich man's moner
was so high, that the government loans
could not be secured for less than three
or four times of what they have been
for the last few years. It may be that
the present democratic party desires
things to drift back like they were in
those goad old times we hear them
speak so much about.
ID ABILITY OF THE PKESENT ADMINISTRATION.
The following special dispatch from
the city of Washington to the Minne
apolis Tri. unc is so fitting to the. situa
tion of things and the incompetency of
the present democratic administration
to do anything for relief that we repro
duce it in full:
"Five months and more have passed
since the inauguration of Mr. Cleve
land, and men liav begun casting
about to Bee what the harvest has been
so far. Said a leading merchant of
this city this morning:"
"The times are becoming desperate,
and scores of business men here are
just haugii g on the verge of bankrupt
cy, hoping that some change may come
soon that will enable them to escape
the ruin impending; and I learn that a
similar state of affairs exhists in other
cities. There are thousands of our very
best business men throughout the Un
ion our most enterprising merchants
and manufacturers who are in despair
and who see nothing but irretrievable
ruin before them unless' a change comes
soon. When the new administration
took charge of the government, all
were assured that new measures would
be adopted at once that would afford
relief to discouraged, despairing busi
ness men of all classes, The old rules
and methods of the republicans were to
immediately go overboard, and Mr.
Cleveland would, we were assured, put
in force such measures as would restoie
confidence, accelerate business, and
money plenty for all legitimate enter
prises. Five months have gone, and
what has been the result? The strain
on business men has been intensified a
hundred fold; doubt and distrust and
gloom have spread farther and farther;
the vaults of our banks are bursting
with money, piled up in cords by capi
talists who are afraid to loan a dollar
to a struggling trade. All the chan
nels of business are choked and dam
med because capital can not be had
wherewith to utilize and make availa
ble the vast products of our mines,
farms, mills and manufactures. The
promise that our commercial marine
would be restored has been kept in
such a way as to bankrupt the only
ship-builder in the country able to con
struct a respec.able vessel. The only
effort to improve the financial situation
consisted in calling together the bank
ers of New York city and confessing
to them that the treasury was unable
to keep up gold payments unless they
would agree to furnish the gold, thus
very nearly precipitating a ruinous
"There is not a member of the ad
ministration,'' continued the business
man, "who. seems to have mental
breadth and grip enough to comprehend
the true situation or devise any ade
quate measure of relief, and it looks
now as if we would have to drift along
for the next four years, helpless and at
the mercy of wind and tide; and heaven
only knows what the result will be.
One thing, however, is settled now,anci
that is that it will be another quarter
of a century before the democratic par
ty is again entrusted with the control
of the government. A short five
months have sufficed to satisfy business
men of all parties that the democratic
party is utterly incapable of conceiving,
much less ctrrying out, any measuies
adequate to the situation."
One hears this same story from rep
resentative men from all parts of the
country every day here now. There
is much impatience exercised on ac
count of the failure of the party in
power to do something to restore busi
