"50 IBISH KEEB APPlt.
Tho "Democratic Times."" the organ
of Jackson county Dembcracy, recently
discovered that the Irish' citizens of this
county had considerable "intelligence
andmanhood." The compliment if as at
doubtfnl one, coming from the source
it did, and the SuxTiNELsuggested that
a place on the Democratic ticket, ac
corded occasionally to an Irish born
citizen, would be a more substantial
recognition than a little "mouth taffy"
from a source not .noted for sincerity
or correct judgment. The Democracy
fiaro just given tho "intelligent" Irish
voters of their party another slap in
the face and tho Gods truth, is; they
are considered just "intelligent" en
ough to vote tho Democratic ticket,
But hardly enough so to hold the small
est office in the county. Prof. John B.
Parley, one of the foremost teachers in
Southern Oregon, who has spent near
ly twenty-one years in educating the
youth : of Jackson county,, and may
more .in voting the Democratic ticket,
offered himself to the Democratic con
vention, held here on Thursday, as a
candidate for - Pounty School Superin
tendent, and was spurned with con
tempt.' Vhy? He was in everyway
qualified by education and traiuint;,
ruoro so than the present incumbent
a man of, good moral character and
whose lifo long service as an educator
entitled himrto reward. "Why then
was he -thrust asidel Because just as
the' Sektikel said last wek the rule
of the Democracy has been "No Irish
need apply." Another Irish born citi
zen, James A. Wilson, than whom
Jackson county has no better man,
went before the Democratic convention
last Thursday asking for the small
boon of the nomination for Justice of
tho. Peace in Jacksonville precinct.
Who dares to say jthat he, was not
worthy and qualified? The convention
again spit in the face of tho .nationality
that have been a solid pillar of Demo
cracy by giving hira one solitary vote.
Why! Because: like Mr. Farley lie
was an Irishman and a Catholic! The
Irisb. born citizens must draw their
own conclusions, we have none to make
no advice to offer and only re-state
facts, that are- of record and can not be
denied; The Irish have been- credited
by tho -"Times" with "manhood' and
intelligence," not beeaust the "Times"
thought they had tbosa qualities, but
because1 they were a solid support to
tho.Democratic ticket and could always
be relied on. "Will they take the
"Times" at its word and show that
they have manhood enough to resent
continued insult, and intelligence en
ough to vote like freemen) It now re
mains to be seen. If they continue to
bo servile tools in the hands of politi
cians then they. will convict the "Times
Tf lint George Dm not done.
After ' tho long and creditable list
of what Mr. George' "has"' done in
Congress, how is a good time to note
Ebmo things he has not done. It is
notorious that a California land com
pany' have' been trying for years to
steal about 150,000' acres of land
claimed to be granted to the military
road-company in Lake county. A bill
was presented to Mr. George early last
winter 'which was a cold steal of that
much land and Mr. George promptly
refusedMto introduce it in Congress.
Subsequently it was "introduced by
Representative Rosecrans and Mr.
George declares that if it passes it will
bo because bo can not prevent it
Democratic papers have been trying to
tell what Mr. fleorgo has not done but
havo inadvertently overlooked this
item. Will they kindly mention it
. -To -whnm it may coneern: Having
been informed of the circulation of a
report that Mr. Merritt was compelled
b order of the Directors to close his
school on the day of the "burial of Alex
ander Berry, wo, Directors, then and
now, declare that no such order was
made, and that the report is utterly
false.. r W.htm Jackson,

Jacksonville,' May -iM,' 1$82. ' i
The speech delivered here on Toes
day by Hon. L. J. PowelL was a
marked departure from the usual style
of political speeches, being notably free
from partisan Bias, scholarly and gen
tlemanly. The speaker dwelt' long: o
the duty of the state to- provide a free
education for every ono of its children
and. then showed the wrecking of the
school fund by the last Democratic ad
ministration and its utter disregard
for the sacred character.ofTitsA.tnist.
His conclusions: were drawn from the
(report of a committee of investigation
appointed By a Democratic legislature,
that in scathing- terms denounced the
rapacity of the Graver administration
and its criminal recklessness in handle
ing the school fund. He showed that
in overy state, witst an assured and
steady Republican majority, the school
laws were the most liberal, and educa
tional matters in a higher and more
perfect state of efficiency than those
not Republican, and proved that h.
Republican party had over been the'
friend of free education. ,
He drew a vivid comparison between
the. present administration and the
coemption of the Grover-Chadwick dy
nasty. Tho unblushing corruption of
tho Grover-Chadwick officials prevented-
their nomination direct, yet every
mam nominated on the Democratic
ticket belonged to the Grover-Chadwick
wing of the party. That admin
istration hai left to the present one a
legacy in tho- shape 'of a Stats debt,
contracted in open violation of the con
stitution, of $737,713.34, exclusive of
interest. The present administration
had paid of this 550,481 and the in
terest, which the retiring officers were
careful not to report, amounting to
$118,459, aggregating in all $668,940,
in four years. This single act should
have been enough to re-elect every offi
cer connected with it. But with these
facts all before them, the Democratic
party tare- ignored Gov, Thayer, and
why! Because the Grover-Chadwick
wing was-! in power, and Thayer was
not of them, and they had for him not
one word of commendation..
Ho had known Mr. George from
boyhood, known him in school, watched
his career in Congress and was proud
of oar young and able Representative.
Mr. George, he said, xhad reached a
position on the Committee of Com
merce, never before reached by a mem
bor from this state, and he thought it'
would be folly to replace "him just at
the moment of his usefulness by a new
and untried man. Nothing could be
brought against the character of Mr.
George. He was absolutely unimpeach
able, intellectually and morally he was
no of the grandest Representatives
Oregon ever had and one we mijjht
justly be proud of.
The speaker had known Mr. Smith
for thirty-five years, he was a perfect
qentleman, and in past years has been
a man of much ability; but nothing
less than the hope of raakinc political
capital out of the Chinese question
could have galvanized him into tempo
rary political life again.
Mr. Z. F. Moodv he lenew to be
every way fitted to be Governor sf this
State. He is no speaker, but a man of
'business acumen and integrity, and of
strong practical common sense. "Mr,
Moody cam? to this State a poor man;
he has Become wealthy by managing
his business correctly; has some ex
perience in legislative work, being
"elected from a Democratic county, anil
two years ago was elected chairman of
"Rocky" Eirbart he thought too
well known to need extensive notice.
Should Mr. Smith by any chance be
elected Governor of Oregon, he would
probably not live his term out, and
Earhart would undoubtedly become
The speaker warmly alluded to the
manner in which. Mr. Hirsch had dis
charged his. duties, and pointed to his
name as the synonym of integrity .and
capability, and who will render a strict
account of every cent paid into tho
Mr. Powell'referred briefly to the
tariff question, showing that it was
not a political one all parties differ
ing on it; none agreeing among them
selves and that from its, very nature it
never could be 'opposed solidly or be
supported solidly by either party. The
Chinese question was virtually out of
politics, never Bad been in politics on
this coast all parties being united on
it and to show Mr. George's position
quoted from his powerful speech in
Congress as follows;
'!Give us of your people. Give us
the people of our race. Give us the
English, the Irish, the Scotch, the Ger
man, or the Scandinavian. ' Give us
those who will come with their, fami
lies; who will assimilate with us; help
diversify our industries and build up
our, Institutions; but do not forco upon
us the Tery opposite 'this cheap, ser
vile, ignorant and idolatrous laBor."
Mr. Powell urqed voters to be citi
zens rather than partisans, to canvass
every candidate with unimpassiohed
judgment and vote n&t according to
mere habit but with reference to. the
best interests of the country in which (
wo are all iBtereeted and tor select for
office those Best calcalated to carry but
the- ideas of ' efficiency sad economy.
The speech, was well received by Men
of Both parties for it was a cool and
dignified appeal to tho Better judg
ment of men and not to their prejudi
ces. There was a large attendanci of
ladies and the speaker was .listened
to throughout with close and respect-J

The Democratic organ in this county,
(he "Times" gives the puBlic tho fol
lowing Bit of wisdom: "a man must Be
either a Democrat or a Republican."
This will be sad, sad news to American
citizens wbo, Heretofore, have had an
idea that they were free moral agents
invested with tho right to stay out of
any party if they saw fit, and the next
we hear' will be the enunciation; that a
man must be a Presbyterian or a Cath
olicwith not atrinch of middle ground
to stand on. This is, to be sure, the
merest stuff and balderdash for no one
is obliged to join any. party except as
a matter of choico but it is the old ring
of the party whip that has been used
in Jackson county to drive Democratic
voters to the polls like a lot of coolies
and which has not always been effectu
al. Several times in this county it
failed and, if memory serves us right,
the Sheriff of Jackson county was
elected two years ago by a party that
was neither Democratic nor Republi
can. Urack the partv whin neiehbor.
mako it hiss and tingle and make your
men understand that to be Democrats
they must stifle all independence a'l
right of private judgment and follow
tho Bell wetber to the polls like a" flock
of sheep. Keep the lash singing
till tho last ballot is cast on election
day and tell Democrats if they dare to
"scratch" or fail to vote the straight
(ticket they will bo read out of the
party and classed with the hated Re
publicans. This is the way to train
American citizens so that they, can be
of the very greatest. service to office;
seekers, because they can be more easi
ly handled swing the whip again
neighbor it sounds so familiar and has
such a sweet sound.
Everything is booming now on the
line of the railroad extension south of
Roseburg. There are now between
1200 and 1400 Chinese at work drill
ing rock, . trading, eta, and the
number is being added to daily. A
large number of whites over, 200 aro
at work at bridge timbers, teaming,
and other kinds of workwhere Chinese
cannot be trusted, and the whole line
is a, scene of busy activity. There are
over a hundred scrapers being used in"
grading, and about 60 dump carts.
These are the property of tho company
who also own a number of teams, and
the-wages of whites who driv them
are 2 per day without board. Where
teamsters are employed who furnish
their own team and wagon the allow
ance is 4.'25 per day. Boring has
commen:ed on tho tunnels but it is not
expected that tho longest will be fin
ished before February andit will prob
ably be a year from this date before
the road is fiuisned to Grave Creek- or
the outlet of the south tunnel, and it
is not anticipated that trains will corae
further south than Riddleberger (30
miles from Roseburg) By next'Novem
Ber. The month of SeptemBer will
make Myrtle creek a railroad town for
a shori time But it wi'l not enjoy its
glory many months as it is now cer
tain that work will Be pushed right
along till connection is made with
Redding. Prices of hay and grain are
gooil along the line, and when the
work gets nearer to this valley our
farmers will have a good harvest; pro
vided they havo anything to sell If
they don't they will he out of luck. '
