—One-Mau Power” Illustrated.
The silly twaddle of “one-man pow
er,” “ring,” etc.,which seems to be the
favorite string upon which Turner and
Watson persistently labor, is so very
hypocritical and contemptible that we
hardly deem it worthy of even passing
notice. But the recent niasa meeting
furnished such a striking illustration
of this “one-man power in polities” of
which they tell us, and paints their
hypocrisy in such glowing colors that
we cannot refrain from giving it.
The “one man” who managed that
little fiasco is not even a citizen of the
county, but a carpet-bagger from Jose
phine, where he is not in the best of
odor. Not withstanding all this, be has
shown himself capable of managing
such a “mass” convention as they con.
coded iiere on the 4th, and proved
himself more than a match for the
dupes who consented to the union and
represented themselves as managing
Republican interests. Cox accomplish
ed a grand coup de etat, and the Green
back “crow” that he dished up for
Republican stomachs on that occasion
seems to muny of that party the “dead
est” carrion they were ever urged to
swallow. Cox gained a great personal
victory and cannot be blamed fur the
feeling of pride that now elites him.
Cox is “boss,” and no mistake.
Declined to be Nacritices.
Hou. T. F. Campbell, the Greenback
nominee for Congressman,has declined
iu a neat letter, which leaves that or
ganization without a candidate for this
office. Mr. Campbell well knows that
he bad not the ghost of a show of suc
cess and has no desire to be sacrificed
in so vain a cause. Other candidates
on that ticket may be expected to fol
low. The absurdity of the movement
is manifesting itself and it will figure
but slightly in the contest. The Re
publicans recognize in it a valuable ad
junct to their success, but present ap
pearances strongly denote that they
will be sorely disappointed. It is ex
tremely doubtful whether eDough
Democrats will be found willing to
give the State to our natural euemies
through this third party hallucination.
They have taken him io. Mitchell's
satellites have captured poor Beek.
and he is now under the training of
Jo. Dolph and Rufus Mallory. He
couldn’t withstand their overtures, and
he has fallen. No more will the Ore
gonian publish those pompous notices
planned by his private secretary, and
the Corbett fellows refuse to touch
him—yea, with a forty-foot pole.
Verily, the clouds become darker each
day, and our fellow townsman will find
himself swamped on the headwaters of
Balt river next June.
The first-class ticket presented by
the Democracy of Josephine is entitled
to the support of every Democrat in
the county. It is composed of upright
and competent men and should be uni
Time rolled on, Bybee protesting that be
would never lend his influence to tho oppo
sition again by becoming a candidate for
Sheriff or any other office. Such were his
public sentiments until he returned last
Winter from Portland, the home ot John
H. Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell had visited this
county a short time before and had a long
private consultation with Ross. What the
subject between these two high functionaries
was is not positively known. Suffice it to
say, however,that the visit of Bybee to Port
land, where he spent a considerable time,
and Mitchell’s visit to this county and his
secret conference with Ross, is followed al
most immediately by the announcement
that Bybee would be a candidate tor Sheriff
again and Ross for Senator, in opposition to
the Democratic party.
Bybee was asked by his friends why be
had faced about so suddenly on the promis
es he had made his friends during the cam
paign two years ago. His answer was: “I
am going to fight the ring-n aster as long as
I live in the county.” But Bybee and
bis friends buried the local fight between
Democrats in the last Presidential election.
Every man who voted for Tilden is a Demo
crat, ami is so regarded by every other Dem
ocrat in the county. Why did he seek to
renew this strife, and, if he wanted to be
Sheriff, why did he not come into the Con
vention of his own party and take his
chances for the nomination with other com
petitors? Said he, “I think I could get the
nomination from the Democratic Conven
tion, but the office would lie an injury to
me if I had it; besides, I mean to fight Klip-
pel as long as I live in the county.”
We ask the Democratic voters of Jackson
county, before they vote for Bybee for Sher
iff, to ask themselves why he h is eaten his
own promises made to Democrats two years
ago? Why he has in conjunction with
Brown and Watson, Mitchell's rightand left
bowers, placed a ticket in the field with at
least two Mitchell men on it for the legisla
ture? Why he is himself on that ticket for
an office which he says would be an “inju
ry” to him to hold? Did Afitchell’s Port
land tools fix matters with him while he
was there, or did Hipplo arrange it with
Ross and himself while here last Fall?
Wil) the General and Bybee give the voters
of Jackson county a little more light on this
subject? How much will Mitchell give tor
two votes from this eounty in the next leg
islature, Bybee? You are a generous man,
Bybee, but it would hardly be doing your
self justice to say you are willing to be placed
in an office that would lie an “injury” to you.
How much does Mitchell give provided
Father Kahler can ride into the legislature
on your supposed popularity? And, if by
any misfortune, you should be thrust into
a place that would be an “injury” to you for
the next two years, what is your security
for such “injury?”
We know these are what you will probably
call impertinent questions; but when we re
member your promises made two years
since, your oft-re|»eated declaration that you
would not be a candidate for Sheriff again,
upto the time you went to Portland; then
your sudden change and unceasing labor to
get out a ticket, the mean-Fyou took in hum
bugging Democrats inio assisting you, and
your final success—when we calmly view
all these circumstances, such questions force
themselves uj>on us, and we ask them.

Dad Ross, candidate for Senator, has been

nominations. Eight years ago lie pretend
ed to bea rampant Deniocratand sought the
nomination for Senator at the hands of the
Democratic Convention. Failing in this he
asked and received the nomination for Rep

after several days' deliberation, and then
again endeavored to recall his declination.
The County Committee refused to consid

since. He lias no particular qualities to fit
him for the position he aspires to, unless
his avoirdupois goes for something.
Bybee has a mania for thoSheriff’s office.
He has been in pursuit of this bubble for
many years and has performed more acro
batic feats in politics than any other man
know n to the history of Jackson county.
Bybee cannot fill the office of Sheriff, and if
elected the business of the office must be
done by proxy—perhaps by Cox.
E. B. Watson, candidate for Clerk, has al
so been anything for office. He is net very
particular, either, whether it is District
Judge or Constable. Watson bad hardly

Prosecuting Attorney on the so-called citi

much to bring the Republican party of Jack-

dition. He has no political scruples and is
an astute wire-puller, with his eyo always
