THE FAVORITE WILL WIN.
It is doubtful if the democracy
will be able to even make a re
spectable effort in the next presi
dential contest Not only has
its recent legislation and its pres
ent administration found great
disfavor with the people, but the
party seems hopelessly split on
the financial question. Democ
racy seems to be in an advanced
state of disintegration.
Democracy has had its oppor
tunity as a dominant party and
has signally failed to show itself
in any particular entitled to that
position. It will be a longtime
before it will regain the confi
dence of the people to the degree
that they will trust democracy
with the reins of government.
But whatever the incapabil
ties of the democratic party, it
will be a national disaster should
it -become the third party in poli
tical power. The country will
have cause for mourning should
the populists elbow democracy
out of the race for supremacy.
The very foundations of the pop
ulist party are laid in pessimistic
discontent and anarchistic ideas
of political economy. The bulk
of the populist party is made up
probably of men who think they
are, and, generally speaking,
really are, good enough citizens.
Their intentions, in the main,
are good enough, but Mrs.
O Leary's cow probably had no
bad intentions wlren she kicked
the lamp over, nevertheless, she
burned Chicago in getting rid of
As it now looks, republicans
will have but little opposition
next year. Of course all things
. are possible in politics, but noth
ing short of an apparent miracle
can raise up an opposition that
will .wean away the people from
their present" faith in the repub
The present agitation concern
ing the non-enforcement of the
city's quarantine ordinances is
rather surprising. Our. citizens
seem to be spasmodic in their
municipal desires. They are
- very earnest in locking the barn
door after the disappearance of
the horse. A death at the Occi
dental hotel, recently, is thought
to be directly due to the non
enforcement of the quarantine
law, and there is a general ex
pression of indignation con
cerning the matter, as though for
sooth the laws of Corvallis were
made to be used. At one time
last spring there were twenty-one
known cases of contageous dis
eases, yet only two . or three
houses were quarantined. But
there was no uproar about it.
This paper called attention of the
police department to the matter
at the time, but there-was . noth
ing done and the people upheld
the department. Then, why the
present complaint against the
chief of police? His present
policy is perfectly consistent with
that of previous years. We have
the last council for authority that
our laws were not made to be
obeyed. Of course some of the
city ordinances are carried out,
but, then, the salary of the chief
of police is not high enough to
enable him to prevent these exceptions.

The Corvallis Gazette, now
in its thirty-third year, has just
celebrated its first anniversary
under the very efficient manage
ment of B. W. Johnson. The
Gazette is one of the best week
lies in Oregon, and an aggressive
exponent of republicanism.
The editor of the Boston Her
ald in an interview with a New
York paper declares his belief
that the democrats will win in
1896. Mr. Holmes is an opti
mist of the highest type. He
bases his belief on the improve
ment of trade in the country and
the aversion of the people to a
change. He also favors Whitney
as the democratic candidate.
The people tried an experiment
in 1892 which was not successful.
That ruin did not follow is not
to be credited to the party which
the people placed in power, but
to causes which that organiza
tion does not and cannot control.

KNEW MORE THAN REED,
In order that the government
in the future may not be caught
in such a predicament as tliat
which has given the administra
tion so much embarrassment
during the past six months and
that any deficiency ot revenue
may be met, it is reported that
Secretary Carlyle will ask the
next congress to give him author
ity to issue treasury notes or cer
tificates bearing a low rate of
interest, and redeemable at the
pleasure of the government.
Should the request be granted
it will enable the government to
pay its running expenses without
large long-time bond issues and
make it possible to tide over
short-revenue periods, and more
especially it would prevent a
drain of gold from the treasury
in times like the present. It is
interesting to note that this plan
was suggested by ex-Speaker
Reed in his amendment to the
bond and bank bill last winter,
which the democrats opposed
solidly, mainly because Secretary
Carlisle claimed that the revenue
would be ample for all purposes
! and such a provision was quite
THE attitude of the Astorian
on the improvement of the Col
umbia river is. surprising. That
paper is ably edited, and on al
most any subject is sound and
broadminded, but on the matter
of the Columbia improvement it
manifests a condemnable little
ness of spirit, selfishness and
absolute silliness.. Large cities
erow, not on the misfortunes and
the crippling of sister cities, but
on account of their own peculiar
advantages and merits. Astoria,
doubtless, has a bright, a bril
liant future, but it must grow to
prosperity by the unanimous
efforts of its citizens in its behalf;
by the advantages of a splendid
harbor; by being accessible by
water and rail to the balance of
the world, and by the aid of the
people of Oregon. It can never
reach the height of its ambition
by attempting to injure Portland.
Portland will not be injured, and
assaults upon ' the metropolis of
the state ought to, and will
arouse the ire of a great majority
of Oregoiiians, especially, when
it takes the form of an attempt
to stop improvements of the great
Columbia. That is a matter
that concerns, directly or indi
rectly, the prosperity of the
whole state. Astoria is blind to
her owu interests in opposing
such improvements. r
"Oregon" has commenced active
efforts. The general outline of
the campaign was made at the
recent committee meeting in
Portland and the dudes of the
several members of the commit
tee apportioned. The commit
tee, of course, anticipate the
hearty cooperation of the state
for this is a matter that appeals
directly to the patriotism and
loyalty of our citizens. The
school children will be given an
opportunity to contribute their
mites, and . it will be a grand
thiner if every child will be able
to claim a personal interest and
proprietorship in the splendid
warship of our country that bears
the name of Oregon.

The friends of Governor Lord
cannot but deplore his action in
appointing Henry McGinn as
circuit judge for Multnomah
county. The governor must
surely know that the appointee
can not add lustre to the judici
ary of Oregon, but will rather be
a stain upon it. He has no rep
utation as a lawyer, except such
as he gained as a pleader in
criminal cases, and his record as
a man is most unsavorv. This
is a matter that concerns the peo
ple of Multnomah county most
immediately, but it is also of
general public , interest to the
citizens of the state. When
blustering rowdyism aims at the
highest place in our judicial sys
tem, the people have a right to
and will protest.; The Orego
nian, editorially,, damns the ap
pointment with faint praise. . It
cannot dutifully condemn it.
That paper hints at McGinn's
past un worthiness -in its half
hearted guarantee of his future
good conduct To put a man
like McGinn in the place lately
occupied by Judge Hurley, a
gentleman and an able jurist,
would be humorous in its con
trast, were it not so serious a
matter. Governor Lord has
j maue a grave mistake.
