THE EUQEHE CITY GUARD.
SATURDAY, XPR.'l. 1870.
Attead the Primaries, .
, . It is the duty oi every Democrat
'in Lane county to attend the primary
meetings ia their respective precincts
to-day. It is a duty you owe not
-only to yourself and to your psrty,
. but tie whole people. If our party
r i lucoeasful in the coming election,
i let ni have only the best men in the
' party to make laws and administer
'' them, and fill the places of trust and
''jjionor,' 'And to be successful wo must
'Vj put such men in nomination. To do
' this, we must begin with the meet
ings to-day. If these' mooting, are
itonded by tho voters generally and
the usual amount of "wire-pulling"
dispensed with, tho County Conven
tion ill take caw of itself. It will
., lejond a doubt be composed of iScn
I who have no candidates to nominute
" cr aspirants to kill. While there are
'no' officer, of tho State gfvornment
'to elect tjiis year, tho elealion is still
n important one, and more than or
i -diuarilY so to the people ot Lano who
' have important local interests, which
' are really the interests of the whole
';gtato, to look after. There is to be
eleotod by the Legislature this year a
Senator to sucoced Hon. J. K. Kelly.
'"We hope die primaries to day will
aolect a body of delegates that will do
honor to themselves by working for
1 the greatest good of tho greatest num.
"r The project of constrnctiug a canal

'water power at Corvallis is ejain be

.. J. C. Jennings writes from Juno

' I bare noticed oue or two extracts ia four

tbt writer advocates tbo building of a eanul

of tbe bead cut, the work may be said to be
iuily balf dooe by nature. If we could bare

I think we could soon bare the canal. Let

; II. 0. Buckingham of the Uelknap
cttloraent Informs the editor of the
Gnxtte "that it would euhince the
value of land betw een Corvallia and
nia placo at least loO.OOO." Some
of the best land in tho southern por
tioo of Denton county la now almost
entirely valuuless io consequence of
oeing overnowed, which would be en
tirely reclaimed aod rendered tillable
by the proposed canal. Othor see
tions, for miles, tire entirely destitute
of stock water io summer, which would
euppnea by this ditch. But these
considerations, taluable as they are,
oo not compare with the advantages
aud beucfiu to be derived as a means
of transportation and water privilege.
;Tho people oi the northwestern
portion of this county are said to be
dlsowinga proportion, to bring the
water out of tie river at some point
above Springfield ar i empty it into

bote iukrcsle, io this matter attend
the meeting which will be held in
Corvallis next Saturday to make some
definite arraugemeuti to put the work
on foot. That a canal could be con
struoled from the point mentioned to
Long Tom at a comparatively small
outlay is evident of itself. There ia
already a ditch through which all the
water from the north side of Spencer's
Butte and the hills adjacent flows in
to Long Tom. This ditch carries wa
ter enough through the winter to fur
nish water power for all purposes.
By oponing it to the river, and we
are told by those who have examined
into the matter that , it can be dono
without any great dificulty, 'there
would bo a ditch which could with
very small outlay be made navigable
to an extent that would enable our
farmers to put their grain in Corvallis
at a very slight advance on the cost
of putting it on board the cars at Eu

Of the Connecticut election, which
occurred last Monday, the Portland
Evening Journal says :
The election yesterday in Connecti
cut resulted in complete victory tor
the Democracy. Ingersoll's majority
for Governor will be upwards of 5,
000. In the Legislature the Dem
ocrats will have a decided majority
over thirty in the House and thirteen
iu tbe Senate. . That will do for the
good old State with. the .penume of
the nutmeg. Sho leads the Dem
ocratic column in the good n'ghl
against corruption and extravagance,
&n the influence of her victory will
go abroad over the Union with the
most gratifying resulty.

think that Newcomerought to air the game

it stands on the statute book, is a nulKty ;
and that neither gTaod jury nor Justice of
the Puace can construe it to vufuable or re
strictive purpose. Our Representatives in

to the Eunoa of The Ouabd:
Having noticed several communications in
your paper from Newcomtr.ln some of which
1 think be has done great injustice to tbe
farmers of this county, aud not wishing aucb
essertions to go abroad and have people
think thy are true, 1 wish to try to Correct
some of bis errors. It seems to me that
when a person writes for a newspaper be
should confine himself as near as possible to
the truth, especially if he writes for informa
tion and about a large class of people. Now
I wish to say I don't di ny but there is room
lor great improvement amongst the farmer
as well as amongst all other classes of peo
ple, but 1 do deny that they are guilty df all
the charges prefcred by Newcomer. I think
the farmers of Lane county, and of Oregon,
will compare favorably with lanmirs of any
other State. True, they may not have
fine improved farms us in other Stales, but
in Improvements, tbey are the crjnul of any

one would believe this to be true f When

And then to cup the whole, he says, "and
