Advices from every portion of the
Biate are of tbe most encouraging char
acter and denote that the Democratic
ticket is constantly gaining ground.
The Greenback fiasco is flattening out
and is only referred to in terms of ridi
cule and contempt. Democrats real
ize the fact that they are only further
ing the cause of Mitchell and the Re
publican party in going off after this
strange god and are deserting the
movement as rats do a sinking ship.
The weakness of the Republican ticket
is apparent to eveu its most bigoted
partisans, which is not calculated to
iuspire them with a superabundance
of enthusiasm and confidence.

work—unceasing, substantial work—

Democrats should consider the facts
ere they roam after this strauge Green
back god. Their defection can alone
result In rendering Republican success
more certain. It is an indisputable
fact that the Greenbackers have no
'possible chance of carrying a solitary
county in the State, and It seems pass
ing strange that anyone who ha9 here
tofore beeD a Democrat should desert
his party when it is evident it favors
many of the prime objects this new or
ganization claims to have in view and
which the Democracy alone can accora-
nliah. The common enemy, the Re
publican party, which at Salem the
other day evinced that it was more
firmly wedded to the monied oligarchy
than ever, erpects to carry the State
through tbe efforts of the Greenback-
era, who are supposed to derive their
main strength from Democratic ranks.
Facts go tc show that Mitchell and his
eoefreres are employing unscrupulous
parties to canvass Democratic counties
in the interests of the Greenbackers,
and attempt to distract our strength
there. Developments made in Jack-
son county prove this beyond perad
venture. This being so manifestly
the case, Democrats phould beware of
the results. It is not only a matter of
local importance, but affects us every
way—county, State and National. Our
county and State platforms are ample
guarantees that the Democracy is
sound ou the main question, and
through it alone can relief couue.
The people of Lake county have a
tender but peculiar regard for the Re
publican candidate for Governor. His
solicitude for their land interests and
his visit there last Summer are matters
that are not forgotten, and the Bettiers
will show their appreciation of him at
tbe proper time. We already hear of
several that are going to vote for him—
to stay at homo. And this don’t refer
to Democrats either.
Tiie legislative nominees on tin-
Democratic ticket are gentlemen ihd
will do us honor iu the place to which
they aspire. Combining ability with
experience, fully acquainted with our
every want, it is one of the best dele
gations that was ever sent from Jack-
son or any other county in the State.
As they will nave a voice iu tiie elec
tion lor U. S. Senator, a very import
ant event, Democrats especially should
see J that they uro elected by au over-
A JloJvst < «mutuate.
Rev. W. B. Curler, the Republican
candidate fur State Printer, iu cum-
mauling on bis uotuiuatiou in his or
gan, the Corvallis Gazette, remarks:
•‘Modesty forbids any eulugiea ul the
candidate for ¡State Printer.” Consid
ering that half his article on the nomi
nees of the Conference was consumed
in an obituary of himself, we are con
strained to believe that Carteriau mod
esty is uf a very unique character.
The Baulliug M iumx it» Head.
After lung weeks’ of incubation
Mitchell’s bantling is finally galvanized
into life and its wail, weak and uncer
tain, is heard through the columns of
Wednesday’s Sentinel. There is no mistak
ing the parentage. It is there in all its pris
tine beauty—a very picture of the cause in
winch it was t onceived. A coteriev*i uotiug
wet-nurses bate it in bund, Lui li is doubt
ful whether it will survive the morrow. It
is badly afflicted with the Klippel feter and
that is enough to founder it.
On our first page will be found tbe
platforms adopted by the recent Dem
ocratic and Republican conventions.
We ask a thorough and unprejudiced
comparison as between tbe two, and es
pecially ask the bone and sinew of the
country to consider them well. Those
inclined to greenbacks also should not
fail to peruse them.
The Oregonian, the leading and
most dignified Republican journal in
the State, is quite weak on the ticket
put forth by the Salem Conference. It
is noticeable that an indifference and
lack of enthusiasm pervades tbe Re
publican party, which does not augur
well for the prospects of its ticket.

to Hayes. This disclosure is confirmed
by Dennis, a co-conspirator in the
great fraud. Hayes sought to reward
the former by nominating him as As
sociate Justice for New Mexico, but
the Senate refused to confirm him.
The latter was made internal revenue
agent for his work. Perhaps these
confessions are too late to do any good.
However, they sorve to clinch what
Democrats have always maintained
and Republicans now udmit, viz: that
the vote of Florida was stolen from
Mr. Tilden anti surreptitiously appro
priated by His Fraudulooey. It is to
l»e hoped that Mr. Tilden will recover
that which justly belongs to him; but
we entertain grave doubts as to Ibis.

herself right upon the record. The op

fortune in the endeavor? In the mat
ter of wealth alone has he any advan
tage of his Democratic competitor,
against whom no odious comparisons
can be made. And, unless Mr. Beek
man has suddenly changed base to
suit the occasion, the extinguishing of the
State debt will l>e quite unpopular even
with him. It has never been a secret hero
that he always favored a county indebted
ness, and why should not this be tbe case
in the present instance? We are not in
clined to charge Mr. Beekman with such in
consistency, nor do we infer that he is a pol
itical weather-cock, ready to be swayed by
every popular breeze. His apologists are
anxious to have it appear that this is the
case, however. *____________
