A Riulicnl Truth.
Senator I Towe, of Wisconsin, a lead
er of the Republican party, said in his
speech in the Senate a few days ago
that “If Louisiana did nof vote for
Packard the whole world knows that
Louisiana -11-i not vote for IJayes.”
And the world knows well enough
that Packard wasn’t elected, and rec
ognizes Nichols as the rfcjWoatul de
jure Governor of that State. Hayes
knows and oj>cnly recognizes this fact,
without the slightest effort at conceal
ment or denial, and this too, in the
face of the fact that Iku kard got 2,000
more votes in Louisiana than some of
Hayes’ Electors. Howe further adds
that “If llayes is not a usurper, Nich
ols is,” and comes to the conclusion
that the President has either usurped
his own oilice, or has aided Nichols in
u-urping his. There seems to be sev
eral unpleasant horns to Mr. Hayes’

Convention proceeded to the solemn
business of selecting seven victims for
tlie slaughter at Salem on Wednesday
next. They were W. A. McPherson,

After instructing their delegates to do

A (¿real Race.
At Louisville on July 3d a race will
be run, four mile heaw, between the
champion of the turf, Tenhroeek, and
the never-beaten Mollie McCarty, for
$10,000 a side. This will be the most j
remarkable race ever run in the Unit
ed States, if not the world, for Ten-
broeck has eclipsed the best tim * ever
made, and the California mare has
never lost even a heat, much less a
rice. Mollie McCarty is owned by
Theodore Winters, the most notable
stock raiser on the Pacific Coast, own
er of the celebrated Norfolk, and a
largo stud of well known animals.
Mollie McCarty is a grand daughter of
Norfolk, by Monday, out of Hennie
Farrow, and is one of the finest bred
and most beautiful animals on the turf.
Mr. Winters is willing to run this
mare agaiust Parole, Aristides, Tom
Ochiltree, or in fact any horse in the
world, miles heats for $5,000.
Greenback Slide Convention
The delegates of this new political
organization met in State Convention
at Albany, on the 3d instant, and put
a ticket in tho field as follows: For
Governor, M. Wilkins of Lane county;
Representative in Congress, Prof. T.
F. Campbell of Polk (the same who
ran for Governor on the Independent
ticket lour years ago); Secretary of !
State, N. T. Cates, of Union; State

man,whose name has been very freely
used by tho Republicans as a possible

coming ticket, comes out in a card in

exalted political ambitions, he hopes
“that the R ‘publican convention w ill

Under this heading for a leader,

ard of the 5th says:
Having stopped all further swarm
ing of Asiatic slaves to this country,
the people must then turn their atten
tion to the Mongolians that arealready
here. We are opposed to all incendia
ry methods of driving them away, but
it is in our power to frame laws that
will be so distasteful to the heathens
that they will be glad to leave us al-
most of their own accord. We must
therefore look to the men who are nom
inated on our tickets for the State Leg
islature. There must be no weak men,
willing to promise anything ami then
as w illingly forget after election.
Candidates must be outspoken in their
determination to do all in their power
to wipe out the Mongolian curse, that
is blighting the whole Pacific Coast,
by all legislation within the range ot
constitutionality. The cubic air law,
as favoring sanitary measures should
be enforced; laws prohibiting the re
tention of Chinese corpses for ship
ment to China, should be pissed; a
heavy per capita tax should be placed
on every Chinaman arriving in the
country; the queues of Chinese found
guilty of crime should be cut off, thus
barring their return to the Celestial
Kingdom; their idols should be de
stroyed as a mockery to our intelli
gence and an insult to our God, and
their superstitious fires and punk burn
ing be stopped for the safety of our
city. These are but a few of the
many laws that might be passed if wo
only put “the right men in the right
place,” and we feel assured that if our
people at large will but catch the spirit*
that actuates the Portland Working
men, we may yet rid ourselves of the

at Washington, who construe the min

Commissioner Williamson says, “Die

great care and cannot fail to be of
great value to all interested in mining
property.” Asst. Attorney General
Marble says, “T he Digest of Decisions
appears to be brought down to this

and instructions, by topics, is very
convenient, as it is novel. It is an ad
mirable compendium of mining law.”
Col. Ford, C lief of Mining Division of
General L ind Office, says, “It contains
the-only complete li-t ot mining pat
ents ever published ” Law Clerk Tif
fany says, “The knowledge that may
be obtained from it would enable claim
ants to so prepare and prosecute their
claims that much delay, loss and liti
gation would he avoided.” Law Clerk
Brainard says, ‘-By consulting this
book mine-owners and claimants will
bo able to avoid tho payment of con
sultation fees for legal advice; and by
having the laws of decisions before
them they may also avoid expen-ivt*
ami unnecessary litigition to manj’
cases.” Law Clerk Howe says, of
know of no publication on the subject
containing so much information. It is
on my desk for constant reference.”
Lawyer Mendenhall says, “As a hook
far easy reference it is invaluable.
Die work is destined to become the
