NOT TO BL1HC
As th argument of the "Tidings"
on the court house question grows
weaker, its words grow bigger, its
phrases rounder, its sentences longer.
Repeated iteration lias caused the "Tid
ing" to regard its assertions as facts,
and a statement of its opinion as argu
ment. Wheti its article of a few weeks
since appeared, wo were disposed to
look upon it as fairly reflecting the
feelings and sentiments of the people
of Ashland, and we answered it accord
ingly. But last week's bombastic
spluttering, ws are convinced, repre
sents nobody but the "Tidings" editor
himself. It says our effort to defend
Mr. Cook was "colossal presumption,
magnificent hardihood." (Was it all
thatl Wo wonder how wo dared!)
And "that a large number of the voters
of the county have not yet forgotten
that they voted for Cook upon assur
ances from him, or thoso interested in
electing him, that he would oppose a
new conr; house.". Now the fact is,
jur. oooimerer suugm u secure votps
by any pledge on the court house ques
tion, and if any person presumed to
volunteer such a pledge, it was done
without his knowledge or authority,
and was probably born of a desire that
he should so pledge himself, and was
promulgated with the hope that he
might feel lound by it. When the
"Tidings" charges commissioner Cook
with securing his election, by deceiving
tho Toters, it makes a charge which is
sot consistent with the facts, and is an
uncalled for injustice to that gentle
"njan. The compassionate tenderness of
the "Tidings" editor for the feelings
of Jacksonville people in regard to a
court house, is profoundly touching.
He has nothing to say against us be
cause we want a court house) You
don't blame usl Oh generous mortal
it is the poverty of the English lan
guage alone, and not our lack of in
dustry in searching tho whole vocabu
lary of gratitude, that prerents us find
ing words adequate to thank you for
this inestimable boon this unparaleled
favor. For months, the shadow of
your possible displeasure had been des
cried in the distance. It had gradually
grown, and deepened, and darkened
until it hung like a heavy pall above
the heads of our onco happy people.
The fear of your majestic frown had
chilled our erstwhile hopeful houIs, and
frozen the very marrow in our bones.
Bat now, that you come clothed in the
radiant glory of a noble and matchless
charity and shed the soft and soothing
sunshine of your gracious indulgence
into the very depths of our desolate
souls, our throbbing hearts long bowed
in awtul awo and solemn fear, again
beat free and full, and nc join in ono
long, loud shout of thankfulness and
praise, and are happy oncc.again.
A Freethinkers convention is now
hi session at Watkins, New York, with
an attendance of 700 delegates from
all parts of the United States.
Among other business of the conven
tion, a committee was nppointed to ar
range for the establishing of a Freo
Thought University, Tho convention
numbers among its members some of
tho best men and women in the
country, and, whatever difference of
opinion there may be-, as to the good or
bad results of their labors, it cannot
be denied that they ore earnest, honest
men and women, diligently working
for what they believe to bo tho advance
ment of humanity.
California is threatened with a
straight-laced, out-and out uuti-monop-oly
party. This party is abosolutcJy
independent of both tho Democratic
and the Republican parties, but it pro
Kses to distribute tho honor of its
nominations equally between former
members of the two parties. Being
entirely new, thiR party will have no
history to explain, no blunders to re
pair, no broken pledges to renew, or,
in commercial phrase, New firm, new
goods, new prices.
Tho average Republican editor, (who
ever he is) says the "Times," is trying
to find out under what Democratic ad
ministration political assessments were
levied. Speak out Mr. "Times" and
let us have the name of one such Re
publican editor. We don't often bet
but we'll lay you twenty dollars to a
cent that you can't name a single one
who tried without succeeding. Put up
or shut up.
Stage robbing would soon lose much
of its charm, did the bold highwayman
repetmoro frequently the fate that has
lately befallen some of these accom
plished gentry. A recent robbery at
Cherry creek, Nev. which netted only
$40 and an Aiizona robbery which
jiaid $5000 resulted alikn in the foot
-pads, in both cases, being hanged by a
Everybody in this part of tho
country will remember tho Crescent
City wagon road excitement, which
prevailed here a year or so ago. It
will be remembered, that asurvey of the
road was made and work begun by Air.
II. Gasquotof Happy Camp. It will
also be remembered that Mr. Gasquet
went to San Francisco, and through the
assistance of gentlemen of this place
and other parts of southern Oregon,
obtained from the wholesale merchants
of that city, subscriptions to the
amount of about $1700. What
amount, of any, if these subscriptions
was paid to Mr. Gasquet has never
been known. About two miles of the
road, beginning nt the initial point
of the survey in Josephine county
was comp'eted but" what the work
cost, or who furnished the money that
paid for it, are alike matters of mys
tery to everybody but Mr. Gasquet
himself. This two miles of road is not
constructed on the lsnd of Mr. Gas
quet is in fact county road although
nothing is known certainly about where
the money came from that built it, it
is generally believed that it did not
all como out of the pocket of Gasquet.
But even if he had furnished the money
to IrniU J .-.-.him of abseluto
ouip on His part, would be, under the
circumstances, somewhat chimerical, to
say tho least of it. All the actual
wotk ever done on tho road was
the completion of these two miles, and
after considerable bluster and little '
work, people began to lose confidence
in the enterprise and then Gasquet in
the following somewhat sarcast.c card
withdrew from the management of it.
To tiik People of Jacksoy, Josephine
and Del Norte Counties:
I would like to be excused from giv
ing any more attention to the C. C.
wagon-road raattir as an active promo
ter. For two years past, on account
of the C. C. wagon road, I have neg
lected my business and suffered great
pecuniary injury by doing so. I fouxd
DONATIONS TOO SHADOWY, PROMISES TOO
slitpery, and my means too limited to
allow me to complete the road singly.
Not wishing to be a drawback to the
welfare of these counties, I will donate
to any company or individual who will
complete the road, all the work done
and interest I have in it and my most
cordial support. H. GASQUET.
A short time since, Messrs. J. Wimer
it Sons, of Waldo, undertook the build
ing of the road and are now pushing
it to completion as fast as the force of
130 men can be made to do it. A few
days nco, they were somewhat sur
prised to receive a formal and threat-
ning document from Mr. Gasquet
warning them not to occupy or tres
pass upon the two miles built during
his connection with the road, and claim
ing it as his individual property. In
the light of all the facta in the case,
Mr. Gasquet's notice bears very much
the appearance of a rather cheeky effort
to bluff the gentlemen who are really
building the road, and who undertook
the work upon tho faith of the prom
ise contained in his card.

Three weeks we have waited pa
tiently for the "Democratic Times" to
define its position if it has one on
the court house question, and we have
waited in vain. Judge Day and Com
missioner Cook, both Democrats, have
been severely criticized by a public
journal of the county, because they
have determined upon tho building of
a court house, and yet tho "Times," the
Democratic organ, has no word, either
of defence or of approval, to offer on
behalf of these gentlemen. Tho
"Times" has merely mentioned tho
fact that a court house is needed, and
that there is some opposition to the
building of ono at the present time,
but it has never yet said whether it is
in favor of tho building of one or
. Now, Mr. "Times," we wish to pro
pound to you, a few, straightforward,
plain-faced questions, and we venture
to hope that, bv a frank, manly, un
equivocal answer to them, you will
silence a certain unpleasant suspicion,
which is beginning to be rather em
phatically voiced by the people of this
community, in regard to your position
on this question.
First, then, aro you, or are joa not
in favor of building a new court house,
in Jacksonville, at the present time?
Second: Do you, or do you not en
dorse the action of Judge Day and
Commissioner Cook in reference to the
court house, and if not, why not?
Third: Do you, or do you not be
lieve that, at the last election, the
question of the building of a court
house , was fully and fairly settled by
the election of Robt. A. Cook, as
a county commissioner? If you answer
this question in tho negative, please
favor us with a statement of the rea
sons upon which your answer is based.

The Willamette University at Salem
has recently come into possession of the
proceeds of the sale, of the block occu
pied by tho Portland Female Seminary,
amounting to about $15,000, and anad
ditional 12,000 raised by subscription,
making a perpetual endovr&fcat of 527,
000, the interest on which is to be used
in pay ing" salaries of teachers. Presi
dent Van Scoy and Gen. W. n. Odell,
one of tho trustees, made arrangements
last Saturday in Portland to have the
proceeds of tho sale of the block above
mentioned turned over to the endow
ment agents of tho University. During
the last three years, since Rev. F. P.
Tower became its financial agent, the
Willamette University has gained more
than 40,000. The woman's college
department is an important feature of
the institution. The next term of the
University will begin on the 4th day of
September under very favorable condi
tions. Tho "Times" insinuates that the
"Tidings" editor is poor and hence his
opinion on tho court houso question is
of little consequence. If tho "Times"
had a littlo more wealth of opinion on
the subject and a good deal less jiover
ty of courage in expressing them it
might occupy its columns with some
thing better than such snobbish innu
endoes. Tho time has gone by in this
country when the value of a man's
opinion is rated by the amount of
money in his purse.
