Bore Retarni "Honest Mo'1 ViidieattJ.
Charges which are certainly well
fouiided have been made against Mr.
Whiteaker on aocount of his relations
some years ago with the Willamette
falls lock company. 'While the
whole facts are not generally known.
enough is known to make it certain
that the case would not bear examina
tion that could redound to Mr. Whit
eaker credit He was a member of
the legislature when the bill was passed;
no urcame the owner of stock m the
company, and that stock stood on the
books in his name, Orcgoiiian, May
No one, we fancy, will dispute' a
a statement made by Mr. R Goldsmith
formerly o!tho firm of L Golnsraith &
Co., of this city, for his reputation for
truth and veracity is so well established
that even the most hardened villi
fier or defamer will hardly dare
question it Mr. Goldsmith says that
he was President of the Willametto
Falls, and Canal Co., and he informed
us that Mr Whiteaker did not own any
stock in the company. As President of
company Mr. Goldsmith says that he
had to sign all the stock and that ho
never signed any for Mr. Yhiteaker.
We hardly think the editor of tho Ore-
gonian would make such a statement
as the above w ithout having some reas
onable impression of its truthfulness,
and now that the gentleman who, more
than any other, should know whereof
he speaks, denies that Mr. Whiteaker
owned any stock in the Willamette
Falls, Locks and Canal Co., the Ore-
gonian should make tho denial equally
as plain and prominent as it mado its
charge, Sunday Welcome.
Shall (he tliiutse Be Naturalized?
E. 15. Watson, as an attorney in a
mining suit in which the rights of Chi
nese and Americans were at stake a
few years ago, not only expressed the
opinion that Chinese could be natural
ized, but urged tho then Clerk of this
county to take the preliminary steps to
naturalizo them. Workingnien of Ore
gon, w e ask you if you want a man on
tho Supreme Bench who holds such an
opinion upon a question so important
to your interests? By such a decisiou
your only hope to get rid of Chinese
competition would be gone, and you
would be outcasts in your own land,
while an alien race, degraded, unpro
gressive and uncivilized, would have an
opportunity to become inheiritors of
your glorious country. Let no parti
san of the Chinese assume the ermine
or all is lout. Ponder well on this mat
ter and act accordingly. -Jacksonville
Better than Speeches.
Several of our Republican friends
have asked us why Whiteaker does not
come Wk and canvass tho State with
M. C. George. We answer that he
was elected to represent Oregon in Con
gress, and as that body is in session
it is his duty to remain there. The
news we get of his work back there is
a greater recommendation to him than
all the speeches he could make. The
following appropriations for Oregon re
cently reported to the House for their
approval shows that he is attending to

The Walla Walla Statesman says:
Great Scott ci the Oregoiiian, is la
boring in the greatest agony to fulfill
his contract with his party in order to
defeat Honest John Whiteaker for Con
gress. All that the On gon ian can say
against John Whiteaker will havo no
effect upon the pooplo at largo. They
know that bo is honest and ablo, and
will prefer hint before any other man
who is placed before them. There is
hardly a possibility that George will
obtain a small majority of votes even in
his own district but Honest John will
sweep Eastern Oregon like a whirlwind
and be triumphantly elected. We have
discovered that trickery is already , be
ing used in Umatilla county by the Re
publicans to causu a division in the
Democratic ranks. This will most la
inontably fail, for tho pooplo have
already discovered that they have been
made cat's paws of and are justly in
dignant The boast of thoso wire
workers in our sister county that they
can drive the Democrats into tho Re
publican camp was premature and will
fail most lamentably. Tho Democrats
of Umatilla will stick to their colors, as
of old, ond show by their votes their re
pugnance of trickery, fraud and corrup
tion no matter in whatever guise it may
The more tho radicals fight Judge
Kelly the more votes they will make
for him. They first started out to beat
both Judgo Kelly niul Prim, but finding
that job a little more than they could
get away with, have concentrated all
their energies against Judgo Kelly.
It would be an act of ingratitude on
the part of the pcoplo of Oregon, after
a man had served them in protecting
their homes against tho savages, in the
Legislature, in the Senato of tho Uni

State courts, in every position faithfully

sides to tho questions presented for
their decisions, and they decided accor

In addition to the six attorneys who
reside at Dallas, 22 were in attendance
from abroad during the aes.sion of the

K. Phillips, purser of the rivar
steamer, Orient, running from this city
to Dayton aud intermediate points,
was made a victim of the "loaded cigar
joke, which came very near resulting
iu a serious manner, and as it is, hat
inflicted serious injuries which will in
capacitate Mr. Phillips from perform
ing his duties for some days. Purser
Phillips, after the steamer left Dayton,
proceeded to smoke a cigar which had
been given him by some party in this
city. He had enjoyed the fragrance
of the weed but a few minutes and had
just removed the cigar from his mouth
when to his astonishment the cigar ra
vealed itaclf an infernal machine, and
as he was, entering his office it exploded
the concussion breaking the glass of his
office window. The cigar had beet
plugged with a dymanite cartridge. A
portion of the charge struck him in tha
face which with his forehead was badly
powder bumed and the left ev-e wag
also injured but not to au extent to ira
pair tho vision. A piece of the cart',
ridge also struck one of the fingers of
his left hand, badly lacerating the flesh,
and the thumb and another finger was
also injured. The wounds oi Mr, Phil-,
lips were dressed as speedily as possible
and on tho arrival of the Orient at her
wharf in this city yesterday afternoon
he was taken to his residence on Fifth
street Another cigar given to Mr,
Phillips by the same party was found
to be similarly loaded. The practice of
presenting parties with cigars loaded
with powder cartridges has prevailed
for some timo in the city and the atton
ding results of the trick played upon
Mr. Phillips should be a sufficient les
son to put a stop to such business. Had
the cigar been in his mouth the charge
of powder was sufficient to have killed.
Mr. Phillips, and it was providential
that he had occasion to remove it from,
his mouth when he did. The party
guilty of the trick played upon Mr
Phillips should lie, if within the power
of the law, severely dealt with thai

amusement and practical joking wit)
