"it an Independent candidate for
District Attorney, I hare a rigbt to
mr name on tbo tickets of eacb and
ever party in this Judicial district.
Democrats of Jackson, Josepbine and
Lake will be supplied with tickets on
which, as a matter of right and conve
nience, my name will appear instead
of T. B. Kent's. The charge of bitter
and uncompromising partisanship is
refuted by the fact that I have sup
ported Democrats net only for local
but also for State offices. An office,
the duties of which relate directly to
the rights of the people, should be free
frem political sentiment or subservi
ency. J. W. Merkitt.
Btffcrcsee or plnlaa.
Oar neighbor of the Times asserts
thit the new Chinese bill signed br
the President is not near so good as
the one he vetoed. This is really too
bad and we are awful sorry to hear it.
Small papers like the "Bulletin,"
"Chronicle," "Alta" and "Call have
surely been ljing about the Chinese
b))l, for they all concur that it it the
identical bill, except that the period of
its operation is reduced to ten years
and "passports' are called "certificates."
Now that the "Democratic Times" is
heard from and it-is ascertained that
the' bill is only a worthless shadow of
its former self what fools the people of
California were far wasting so much
powder over the signing of the bill.
We now-venture the opinion that our
neighbor never read either bill, don't
know what is in them, and, if we re
member ris;ht, that his sage opinion
was stolen from the "Yocahill Repor
ter" or "AJbany Democrat" and palmed
off as original and truthful. When we
see such contemptible and puerilo
efforts to mislead thejiublic we can on
Ij'say with uncle "Toby" "Good Lord
how thia world is given to lying."
The decision of the Supreme Court
in the Canyonville toll . road case has
wiped away all shadow of right, or
pretended right, thai Gaiety and Fink
have been extorting tolls under. The
whole road through the Canyon is now
by virtue of the decision a "free'1 pub
lic road and all persons shou-'d refuse
to pay a single cent of toll and any at
tempt to collect it b the same as petty
larceny, We adrise all teamsters and1
travelers accordingly to refuse to pay
tolls and, should any trouble ensue, ve
are authorized to, say that Judge Wil
lis of'Roseburg wiVl defend any and
all persona free of charge and ft his
. ows-expense. If teamsters are sensible
they will club together and make a
test case which will compel these illegal
toll .collectors to tear down the toll
gate which, under the decision of the
Supreme Court, is now a public nni
nance awl an obstruction o the high-
tray. Th'w is probably the but that
will be heard of this celebrated case, as
its whole essence ha been, settled by
till last decision.
The Committee on Judiciary ive
almost unanimously decided to report
adversely th section of Cobbs' bill
declaring land grants of the Northern
Pacific Railroad fee been forfeited.
The law governing- Psctfio roads,
namely, the Northern Pacific, Southern
Pacific and the Atlantic and Pacific, is
difierant from the statutes governing
grants io other roads. The Northern'
P&cfiic act doos not provide for f orfeit
Vre.p.f lands; b.ui jn the event of non
compliance with jU provisions by the
compaayv allow ite Corernment to
pike the road and farther it construe
jtioa in any way possible.

From the Washington City "Sunday
Chronicle" of May 6th, we take the
following: Perhaps so mere beautiful
and graphic description of the great
Northwest was ever made than that of
Hen. M. C. George, of Oregon, ia the
House of Representatives last Tuesday.
Mr. George was peculiarly happy in
his reference to the -fertility, resources.
and extent of that great country, w&Sc&
ke stated, embraced an area ol 3UU.UW
square miles. Oregon alone, according
to Mr. George, is "equal to all New
England, and two-thirds of the Empire
State thrown in. It is larger than the
great States of New York and Penn
sylvania combined, and is much larger
than either Ohio and Pennsylvania, or
Indiana and Illinois, laid side by side.
Oregon is half as large as old England,
over six times as largo as Switzerland,
and about eight times the size of Hol
land, and nearly nine limes as large as
Belgium. Were Oregon settled as thick
ly as Ohio, our population would be
over seven and one-half millions; or as
Pennsylvania, we would hare over eight
and one-half millions; or New York,
over ten millions; or Switzerland, over
thirteen millions; or France, about
eighteen millions; or Holland, about
twenty-seven millions; or our mother
country, England, probably over fifty
millions, or as many as are new in all
of the United States of America." Be
sides a vast extent of country, Oregon,
says Mr. George, "has the three essen
tial conditions: first, a climate warm
enough to ripen crops and secure tho
comfort of man and beast; second a soil
of natural fertility; and third and last,
sufficient moisture to render the soil
productive." Mr. George elaborates as
to these essentials, and shows a country
well "capable of furnishing sustenance
and prosperous and happy homes for the
teeming millions of the future." We
do not remember to have seen a more
graphic grouping of facts illustrative of
the resource and capabilities of any
country than this of Mr. George, which
is made for tho purpose of showing the
importance of improving the natural
water courses of that country. Certain
ly Congress should be liberal in making
appropriations for a country blessed
with so many natural advantages, and
capable of sustaining so great a popula
tion. If the people of Oregon do net
get from Congress what they want in
this respect, it will assuredly be no
fault of their able and faithful Repre
The latest complaint si tho Dem
ocratic Times is that Mr. George has
been flooding the State with his speech
es. Mr. George has mailed many cop
ies ol his speecfe delivered w me
House of Representatives on the
"DevelopmeBtof the Great Northwest,"
and, if the editor of the Times wore
competent to judge and possessed of
the slightest fairness, he would say it
was an honor to Oregon to have a man
in Congress who could so eloquently
and forcibly present her resources and
advocate her claims. This speech, so
complete in all its' statistical details,
so graphic in its description of Oregon
and the Northwest, so convincing ia
its logic, arrested tho attention of
congress and elicited enconiuuis from
members who had grown g-ay in the
public strvsce. We now challenge
the Times, any of its friends, any Dem
ocrat or itei.ubitca. to produce a
speech made in congress at the pres
ent session equal to Mr. George's in
vigor, eloquence, research and logic.
This is saying a good deal, but 'we
boldly challenge comparison. Those
who have read Mr. George's speeches
are quitt able to determine on their
merits, however, far more so than the
Times'' is, and the general' opinion
happens to be that they are creditable
both to Mr. George and the State-ho
has the honor to represent We will
moreover bet the editor of the Times
that he never rtad one of them, that
he don't even know what they are
about and could not appreciate nor
understand them if he did read them.
Match them if you can, or shut up.
Tho Jacksonville Times' has the
reputation of paying less regard to-
truth and facts, than any other news
paper in Oregon. Ashland Tidings.
The Ashland editor forgets two
things wbsa ho enunciates the above
troth. First, that the trath should
not always be spoken; second, that
truth ought not to be expected from
the "Times" when it has had a stand
ing "lie" in its columns for tho last
three years. If the Times" desires
proof let it ask ns and wa will give
full satisfaction. Spit it out, neighbor!
