Willi all due respect for our worthy
brother, siys the Christian Aifonenle,
we cannot but feel that Rev. II. K.
limes who has accepted the n mina
lion of tho republican slate conven
tion lor congress, has made a greal
mistake. In our judgement it, is si l
dom if over that the good of the com
nionwealih demands such a step. It
ceiiaiuly doc not now. We fail lo
see nuy reason on thu part of the
statu which require Litis, while in
tjio corruption among wire working
poliliui lis and llio chicanery neces
sary to bring about such a tiomiuatioii
we do see ample reason for not taste
ing, touching, or.haudling the unclean
ihiiiL'. Ii ' not so much a qu.'siiou
of moral right, however, as of exp. di
eiicy. Thu vows of . a, minister ot
Jesus are still unoii this brother. , II
has not been uomiuatetl by the church,
nor has his eonloi cnco released him
fi out his W'irk as presiding older of the
Bo'se di-ti iut. He simply steps aside
from his legitimate profession, one
in w ii ith for years ho has spent hi
time and talent and lor which hu has
educated himself. He is not a stales
man. It would bo unreasonable to
rcquiro he should be. Nor do we
risk anything in saving ho is not the
choice of lliu republicans of the Slate.
We doubt not his name would never
have been thought of for this position
but for tho usual game by .which
uuheaid nothings are accomplished
among politicians. Who bus done
this work wu do net know, tior are
we worried in the least about tin
coming election. We believe how
ever it turns out, it will prove a final
injury to our good brother and will
out benefit to thu Slue. Mr. limes if
elected w II doubtless maintain hi
' Integrity a 1 1 di all .!i,t otn . but in
tegruy and sneeess at Washington
j are I wo tli.ngs. poliiic.iu are pub
o property in the worst possible
; sense. Alieady the opposition ivi
prs are throw.ng garbage and the
stench of the campaign is upon us.
However Well A good man bears llu se
things, no minister can oft rd to in
vile llu-ni,withui a better lesson
than wu can see in this esse.

Annual Mcijaje of the President of the
Coonrll.
TO THE Ho5oKALK, TUB CoMHOX CoCXCJL
or Et'oisi City:
Gxstlims!: Id compliance wit's article
eiglit of th Amended Charter of 'the city,
which makes it the duty of the President of
the Council at least ooce in each year to re
port to the Council the financial condition of
the city, and at the same time to saggent
luch measures as will com! ace to the gener
al health snd nroperity of the city. Beg
leave to submit for your consideration: That
from a critical examination of the b lokt of
the Treasurer, there has been collected from
all snarce $3,243 50, ami tliereareontatanriing
warrants in the sum of $255 80. For a de-
tailed statement'of roceipts and disburse
ments, yon aro reipectfully referred to .the
Treasurer's and Marihal s reports.
I am informed by the Marshal that the
smonnt of delinquent taxes are 310 4.t,
which if collected ttill be sufficient to pay
all outstanding warrants of the year ending
Aprd I, 1878, leaving the city free from Jubt,
At the commencement of the last fiscal
year, April 1877, tho city was in debt in the
sum of jt, 100. During the yaar the city
has constructed a. substantial stone culvert
on WillametU and Sixth streets, and also a
a bridge on Patterson and Tenth streets,
which extra expenses will not be required
the present year.
Estimating the services of Night Wutch,
Marshal, Recorder, Treasurer and the con
strnction of crosswalks at the same prices of
1877, it will require the sum of alxiut two
thousand dollars to moot the cxpensos of the
emuing year. But from the unsafe condition
of miny private sidewalki btth in the center
and remote pirti of the town, our citizens
are liable to moet with serioin injury, both
in the day and night time, and the city there
by be liable for heavy damages. I would
therefore recommend that tho Committee on
S reets make a thorough examination of all
the sidewalks in the city and direct the
M trahal to give written notice to the owners
of the property to repair or construct new ones
wharo necessary im Mediately, and in every
caie where the owner of the projicrty dues
n it commence the repiir or constructs i of a
now walk aftur ten days notice given in writ
iug, that the Marshal do construct tho same
at the expciuo of the owner, I would in this
this connection recommend thatanoudinance
pissed requiring all sidewalks constructed on
Willamette and Eleventh streets in the fu
ture toia eight feet wido, excepting in that
part Willainetto street where they are now
ten feet wido, to be and remain as they are
now constructed. During the pint year
soven street lamps have been erected by pri
vate citizens, and thu city lias fuiuishud
tho lights. This is a small expense to the
city but a pluxsure and benefit to all citizens,
and I would recommend that four lamps be
p a:cd, one at the northeast corner of Eighth
and High streets, by the Baptist Church, one
at tho northwest comor of Xiutli and High
streets by the Christian (,'hurch; one. at the
northeast corner of Eleventh and High struct,
slid ono at tho northwest comer of, Seventh
and Olive strceU Tho lighting of the city
being a puhlia benefit, private citizens ahull
nut be callud on to erect the lamps.
I would recommend that all street cross
ing! be live feet wido, three inches thick and
tho tiiubor ton to twelve inches wide, and bo
let to tho lowest bidder annually, and all
gravel required for grading the crossings be
let to tho lowest bidder, per square yard, an
nually. I would further recommend that
the street committeo ba directed to examine
at an early day the intersection of every
street in thq corporate limits and that they
direct tho same (every ono that may . i dpi ire
it) to be graded ovor tho entire intersection
or squire. That tluy als.i contract with
soma person or porstms to remove all ob
struction from the ditch leading from tho in
ter ,iti n of Olivo and Sixth streets to the
crossing of tho 0. A C. It. U. I would also
recommend that the ordinance relating to
peddler's license, enacted on to-wit: The
13th day of Auguit, 1S77, bo epealod and
law mors reasonable in terms be enacted,
as the law as it now stands amounts ttt
prohibits i, and a small revenue to the city
is thjrj'iy oxti ig tishud.
,At a sanitary .noisnrj, every citizen should
keep his premises free from any nuisance, and
the Council should direct all streets and al
leys in the corporate limits to be kept clean.
With good sidewalks and clean streets and
alleys, tho city will assnme a healthful and
prosperous sppcarancc and strangers visiting
the city will be glad to sojourn and jK-rma-nuntly
settle.
I would also recommend that the property
holdjrson Willi uette strwt fromthedepitto
thesout't boau I i.-y of tho city, and such other
places as tho committee on streets shall ti
red be required to repair and till up the
sinks in ths streets to tho required gnt,lo.
Bufore concluding this communication I
beg leave to submit ouo other subject for
your consideration at no far distant day. The
growth of the city and the improved valua
tion of proiertr will d.-mand the purchase of
a lire engine. The city is at this time about
out of debt, and it wdl not require exceeding
four mills, perhspt not over tlireo to th-es
ami a hal', lor the nees.ary cxpensos of th..
city (he ensuing year. M on!d it not U
vu.ible to levy one mill or one and a l.alf
nulla the present year, and the same amount
of levy nut ) ear ! This would alinrd sutti
rient means to purchase a double suction and
force engine with perhaps thrvo hundred frwt
of how. An ainount could be raised in this
manner which, wouM not be seriously felt by
the tax Myers an. I teiumcirntfrtii vmu
of the city. I am, dear sirs, most respect
fully jocr oWie ut s-mant.

Democratic Platform.
The f dlowiug is the Platform as adopted by
the Democracy of Oregon in State Convention
assembled in the City of Portland, April 11,
1878.
Sec. L ni.-itasimplegovernmenthor.estlyand
economically administered, confined in its oper
ations to tho administration of justice and the
preservation of the public peace, is the only
safe guard against the abuses of power to which
persons in authority nre prone, and the corrupt
and lavish appropriation of the public funds to
corporations which has characterized the Na
tional administration for the past seventeen
years.
Sec. 2. Tha we heartily approve the action
of Congress in rvinoneti iug suver. That we
believe that all m mey made or issued by the
Government should be of equal value ami that
we are in favor of paying all the obligations of
the Government hi greenbacks so-called w hen
the p:-cmii.iry interest of the people is promot
ed thereby, except where otherwise expressly
provided.
Sec. o. That we regard the forced resump
tion of specie payment as greatly aggrivatiug j
the depression and distress consequent on a ,
long season of inflation and extravagance. We
therefore favor the repeal of the act requiring ,
resumption Jap. 1, 1879. j
Sue. 4. That the gratuity of near twenty-four
mil. ion dollars now paid the National lianks ,
by the Government is simply levying trib
ute upon the people for tlie benefit ot the cap
italist : we therefore favor the repeal of the law
under which they were establish!, and the di

Sf.i 5. That wo heartily indorse the eiiorta
now being made in Congress to reduce our pres
ent tariff to a strictly revenue standard. 1 hat
the interests of the grat mass of the people of
tho United States lie in tlie paths of unrestrict

Sec. C. Th.it we favor continued agitation
en the S' bject of Mongolian immigration to
this country until the i'ed-.ral Government is
moved to modify our treaties with the Chinese
Umpire so as to prohibit it, anil thus save i
those of our fellow citizens who depend upnii j
labor for a support, from unjust and degrading
competition.
Sec. 7. That the eighteen years of ruisrulo j
of the Republican party is indubitable proof
that that party is no longer to lie trusted.
That much of its legislation iu Congress has ,
t-'iKcd to make the rich richer, and the poor
poorer, nd we arraign that party before the,
people for its classed legislation, for having fos
tered and upheld rings, for its repented elforts
to overcome the voice of the people by nn un
just and unconstitutional use of the military
aim of the Government, and for forgeries per
petrated under its otticial sanction, whereby R.,
ll. Hayes was placed iu the Presidential chair
1 j contrary to the expressed .will of an ovcrwhelm
j ; iug majority of the people of this Government.

and Federal, as will prevent the abuses grow
ing out of compensation for extra services and
will limit the pay of otticials to a single salary ;
secure the prohibition of all perquisites, that
fruitful source of corruption whereby the dm
peuaatlou allowed by law to those in public
employment is frequently doubled ; the tliini-
without re"ard to efficiency.
Sec. 9. That it is the duty of the State Gov
eminent to maintain its supremacy in regard to '
the authority uot delegated in the constitution I
of the United States, and to vindicate iw juris- j
uicuoii ngauixi, einxoaeiiuieiiis mini any source
