A Few Suggestions.
As the political parties in this
county will shortly hold their county
conventions to nominate county of
ficers a few suggestions from us on
behalf cf the people will not be
In the first place, the people have
grown tired of having their prima
ries "packed"for certain men by po
litical tricksters, and policy, if no
better reason, would dictate to the
politicians that the less of this "fix
ing things" in the primaries there is,
the better will it be for both the
party and the candidate.
Secondly, the men nominated
should not be noted for obscurity,
but men who are known in the conn
ty for integrity of character and ca
pacity for the office. The candidate
bhould, at least, possess integrity.
Do not choose a weak candidate for
mere local advantage.
Thirdly, the candidates fcr the
Legislature should be sound on the
railroad question in this county.
iVbit' is the time in tho beginning' of
railway corporations in thi3 State to
set metes and bounds to their rapac
ity. Railways should bo compelled
by law to give stations and all the
necessary facilities for transporta
tion to the towns and neighborhood
centers along the line of their routes,
and without discrimination; and the
matter should not be left to their
pleasure whether they shall give
these facilities or not.
Fourthly, the Senator elected from
this county should have legislative
experience, or experience in bodies
of similar character, so that ho .will
not bo a "knot on a log" in
the Legislature. And at least one
of tho Representative should bo a
good speaker, and by a "good speak
er," we mean one who knows what to
say and when and how to say it; not
one who knows nothing and is deter
mined to tell it willy nilly. It is
more necessary to have'an efiective
speaker in the House, because that
body is largely made up of men
without education or experience,
and an cuccuvo speaker in sucu a
body always commands a large
number of votes.
And lastly, no delegate should
feel bound to support the candidate
put out by the convention. Let
every man voto as ho pleases. Let
us voto for men av;hilo and see
if the )rinciples will not take care of
The Eutch. Have Taken HoUand!
The Oregon ia ii of Monday states
that at a meeting of the stock-holders
of the O. & C. R .It. Co. last Sat
urday, W. L. Halsey, len Holladay,
II. f hielscn, Geo. V. Weidler, C.
H. Lewis, lv. Koehler and S. F.
Chadwick were elected Directors of
the road, but the new board have
elected no officers yet. The Orego
nian commenting on this wonderful
change(?) in tho management of the
road says: "The country is glad to
be well rid of Holladay, and has
confidence that his retring is the end
of the railway jiolitics, and the un
just discriminations that havo been
made" under his presidency! AVe
cant "see it," Bro. Hill. How a
"new railway 'management" with
Holladay a director, and with a ma
jority of the new board made up of
tho very tools who manipulated
his henchmen, swashbucklers, loaf
ers shoulder-hitters, vagrants and
wharf-rats, under his past adminis
tration? No Subsidy.
Tho Central Pacific Railway Com
pany have made proposals to the
Portland Board of Trade to build
the "NVinnemucca railroad if the
State will pay tho interest on $ 3,000-,
000 of the Company's bonds for a
term of years, which, at 7 per cent.,
would amount to $210,000 per an
num. "NVe object to having such a
debt saddled on this State. That
would be a yearly tax of about $2.00
on each man, woman and child in
Oregon. Let tho Government grant
this subsidy, since it has built rail
roads for the other States. Oregon
is to poor and too young to shoulder
such a burden.
A petition to Congress praying
for a change in the Burlingame trea
ty so as to prevent the importation
of Chinese into this country, has
been sent on here for signers and
may be seen in tho stores in this

subscribed, owing to there being no
special efforts in that direction.
W. Lair Hill s Lecture.
Saturday evening TV. Lair Hill,
editor of the Oregonian, delivered his
lecture on "Five-hundred Years of
Civil War" at the M. E. church in
this place. Notwithstanding the in
clemency of the weather a fair audi
ence greeted tho lecturer. The sub
ject, the, speaker explained, not as
many doubtless supposed, was not a
description of 500 yesrs of secular
and continuous civil war in some
one nationality, but a series of wars
and persecutions,caused by the strug
gle of the people for the right to
think for themselves. And this war,
or series of wars and persecutions,
though spread over the enlightened
world, and fought out by the spirit
and the sword,by individuals and by
armies, preserved the "unities" in the
great drama of the freedom of the
human intellect. This mighty strug
gle had its origin in the writings of
Wicklifio in England in the 14th
century, espoused and taught by
John Huss of Bohemia in the loth
century, and Martin Luther and
Melancthon of Saxony in the early
part of the 10th century. . It was a
war for the freedom of mind, and the
scenes as portrayed by the speaker
shifted from country to country.
Huss was burned at the stako in
1415, when followed 17 years of ter
rible war in Bohemia. Tho diet at
Worms in 1521 exeoniunieated Lu
ther and condemned his writings to
be burned and himself to be brought
to punishment, which united half of
the German princes with the reform
ers. Then came the Huguenot wars
in France ending with the massa
cre of St- Bartholomew, when 30-,
000 Huguenot men and women were
assassinated in a single night. At
this time also the sanguinary war of
Netherlands was also waged. And
in 1618 the Thirty Years War began
which involved all the continental
states of Europe. The English rev
olution began during tha progress of
tho Thirty Years War, which result
ed in the overthrow of Charles I. in
1G47. Whence tho changing scene
shifts to New England, where the
Puritans who held that they had the
right not only to think for them
selves but also for others, persecu
ted and banished persons for exerci
sing the right of freedom of mind in
religious matters; for which same
right they themselves had fled lEng
land and come to America to enjoy.
The speaker in review of these
great events concluded that religion,
though it calms the passions and
makes man free from sin, fitting him
for this life and that to come, yet is
naturally despotic, and when united
with state theocratic government,
whether Catholic, Episcopalian or
Congregational, fosters despotism.
The lecture was not a dry narra
tion of facts but a philosophical dis
cussion of the prsnciples underlying
this great struggle, whose battle
fields, slaughter and burnings are but
the bloody foot-prints of the great ar
my of patriot-martyrs and statesmen
who fought and died for that mental
freedom which wo now enjoy.
Vote for the Best Men.
"When the different political par
ties iu this county make their nom
inations then the independent peo
ple of the county will know how to
vote. We all propose to vote this
year as wo please, and we will vote
for the b'( men. The intelligent
majority of the people of this coun
ty do not propose to bo bound to
support their party tickets. They
havo discovered some of the results
of that pernicious system in tho cor
ruptions in civil service in our Gov
ernment in the last few years, and
they aro tired of it. They have seen
tho primaries "stocked," the conven
tions "captured" and the Legisla
tures and National Congress bought
up, long enough to learn that the
the policy of "xU"ty through thick
and thin" is the cause of this wide
spread corruption. It has taken
years of sore experi ence to raise the
majority of the people of this coun
ty to the manhood of his position,
but they stand there now above
the partisan clamor of the shrewd
tricksters who follow offico seeking
for a business and suck the official
teat for a subsistence.
So it will stand the political par
ties in good stead this year to put
good men on their .tickets in this
county cr the chances are that thej
will be defeated.
The candidates tor office in this
county are staying at home as quiet
as mice now. They are afraid to go
into the country lest it should bo

The Independent llove.
Beavekdam rKECixcT, April 15th, 1876.
Has the Independent movement in this
county been prolific of more good than evil?
This is u question which is now open for
debate and one in which we are interested,
or at least should be. Every voter should
think for himself, and not be led around by
the nose by designing politicians. The
people are the supreme power of the laud
and are responsible for the acts of their ofi
cials. But if the people will not use their
own judgment in political matters but de
pend on the judgment of leading men, and
whichever they way go follow after, the
country is sure, sooner or later, to crumble
and be swept from existence by the floods of
corruption which has already shown itself
throughout the various departments of gov
ernment, and is to day sucking the very
life blood from tho tax-paying part of the
land. Such swindling, such downright
stealing, from a quarter where honesty
should be the principal virtue, is enough to
cause the honest American citizen to blush
with shame. It is a national disgrace. We
can boast of the rapid strides we have made
in the arls and sciences. We are proud of
our statesmen and of the laws of our coun
try, but wo must hang our heads and cover
our faces for shame when we see our gov
ernment robbed by persons who have rep
resented themselves as its friends. And we
think it is high time that people were be
coming alive and thinking for themselves
in matters of so great importance. Some
thing must done to reform the political par
ties, and I know of no better way to do this
than by encouraging the Independent move
ment. The record of the Independent par
ty iu this county I think is so far encourag
ing and the officers have given general sat
isfaction. In view of these faets let us niet
in convention and nominate tho best m.n
we can find to fill tho offices of tho county.
The question now comes up, who are the
best men, and the most capable? To which
I will answer, there aro none moro capable
or influential than holiest men; men whose
names are not classed with political rings;
and men who are not known as wire-pulling
poliiticians. These are the men we
should support in the Independent conven
tion without prejudice as to previous poli
tics. If we do this I think wo are sure of
