Hillsboro, November 27, 1871.
Our cfcns;es will please di
rect their- paper to HiUsboro
from (his date.
The Bulletin Dictates.
The Eulletot editor asserts that the
Independents in Oregon are all go
ing ;back to tne old parties. He
says that there are no Independents
to be found at Forest Grove, but
that they have become Republicans
of the "straightest sect." And con
cludes with the following remark:
Let the rank.and file come back,
but let their leaders go to the dogs."
Gaston is a mercifnl conqueror. A
statesman ,he knows how to deal out
mercy and justice in equal propor
tion so as to win back the mistaken
crowd and punish their leaders with
forfeiture and exile; a philosopher,
his blood and judgment are so nice
ly commingled that in the inidst of
the broken cannon, "hacked swords
and universal slaughter- of hi3 ene
mies he can calmly declare iu plain
Anglo Saxcn, "Let the rank and file
come back, but let the leaders go to
the dogs !" Quomjue tandem abutere
patient to O Catilina !
The Bulletin editor, a ducat
fihrewd hanger-on of HippLi and
Holladay, having no hope of politi
cal resurrection either with the
damned or the just, can afford to
brave the people thus. But it cer
tainly does take an ocean of cheek
in any man where defeat ha3 crushed
his party (faction ?) to denounce and
dictate terni3 to the victors. Ve
say victors, for the Independent par
ty were victorious in the lust election
in this State.having elected a plural
ity in the House in a single cam
paign. Like Scott, Gaston-, in thi
one splenetic boyish squib, demon
strates that he is not fit to represent
- tlie interests or reflect the sentiments
of his party. Instead of using his
position as editor of a leading Re
publican organ in healing the dis
sensions and uniting the factions of
his party he uses the very means
put in his hands to sow new
dissensions and create new divisions.
If the Independent party of Oregon
should die and go back to the politi
cal parties which it left the work it
accomplished and atiempted in the
last Legislature was well worth the
trouble of its birth. It was the first
Legislature we have had in fifteen
years that was not the author of, cor
rupt legislation: Such being the
record of the Independent party in
Oregon if it should die it can do so
with honor. And if its members
should go back to the old parties it
is to be hoped that they will have a
wholesome influence on the efTete,
corrupt and dominant parties. But
it is contrary to all philosophy, and
to allexperience in American politics,
that an upright party shall have such
a short life. The people or Oregon
need the Independent party, and an
Independent victory in our next
State election will demonstrate the
The Bulletin statement that there
are no Independents to be found at
Forest Grove is a mistake, not of
the "Bulletin editor, but of a "gan
grened" Collector of Customs who
was out there recently. The men in
this county who were Independents
in the late campaign are Independ
Get Up Clubs.
Now is the time to get up tlub3
for the Independent. For a club of
five ubscribers we will send the In
dependent a year for$10; for a club
of 10 subscribers we will send the
Independent a yar for $20, and a
copy free to the getter up of the
club. And from now until the first
of January we will send the Inde
pendent to any subscriber for a year
for $2 50 and wait for the pay until
the expiration of the subscription.
Send us your names.

A DYING MAN KICKS.
Fditou Independent :
There is an old adage we have
heard some where, to the effect that
it is dangerous to poke a dying ass
in the Hank. AjiprojxHf to this is the
very laughable manner in which our
county officials had this saying
brought to their remembrance imme
diately after the election. Our Coun
Jndge, Co. Clerk and Sheriff were
condoling with each other upon the
dangerous symptom of this hereto
fore useful animal in the shape of
our Senator, and just as our Clerk
had meekly, pronounced him .lead,
the aforesaid animal let go with
both feet planting a pair of No. lis
right square into the bread basket of
County Judge knocking 6100 off of
his official salary per annum. The
query is now who the people &hr 11
thank fortIii3 "reform," the ass, or
the man that '-poked" him.
