Satitrdat. March 14,
Very Foolish Course.
We dip the following from the Rose
berg "Review," a paper that support
ed Cleveland with all its power in the
last election, and ire think the rebuke
a just and nieritted on gaining force
by cwnirrjf from an advocate of the
"Standard's" own party: "We are
sorry at the course pursued by th
Portland "Standard." Indped if such
a course were general br the Demo
cratic journals, there would be" some
truth in the strictures of the "Oregon
ian" t to the Southern Confederacy
having captured the government. Tlie
paper that cannot Fpeak with decency,
e do not even tay-respfct, of Gen.
Grant must injure any cause it reeks
to uphold. The "Ftandard" pu's the
head "Dying of jim-jaras" over its
account of the pitiful condition of Gen.
(rant, who is slowly but surely being
cansumed by Cancer f the mouth.
"Wo can think of no fate more terrible
than the death by Cancer. We know
that the treat heart of the Aiupricau
people goes out in sympathy to the
jrreati captain, bo often victorious, that
at last but waits his conquering by the
king of terrors. While we are in this
ein we may presume also to I ell the
"Oregonian" that its assumptions re
garding the Southern Confederacy
being in control of the government are
not received even by its own party
with any degree of pleasure. The peo
ple are tired of forever looking back,
They see before them a bright futurp;
they see now a reunited people; they
demand that the great living issues
that have sprung into existence since
the war shall be dealt with. By the
arbitrament of the sword,' they know
the questions that divided them have
been settled now and forever. Let us
therefore in a spirit of brotherly love,
in a spirit of common devotion to the
Star Spangled Banner, in a spirit of
true patriotism again pledge ourselves
upon the altar of our common country
and look forward 1"
The National Republican takes a
despondent view over the failure of
the Oregon Legislature to elect a U.
S. Senator. It says: "With the hope
of securing a majority of the upper
branch of Congress, does any one sup
pose that the whole power of the next
Administration will not be thrown in
to the scale of the Oregon election to
make it Democratic in its results Tht
frail Republican majority in the Sen
ate will, for two years of Mr. Cleve
land's administration, stand between
its errors, its fallacious doctriais, its
mittakts and the country. The anchor
of security for protection to American
industry was the prosptet that the Re
publicans would at least hold a major
ity in the Senate for the next four
years, and until the final adjournment
of the Oregon Legislature the outlook
vat certainly encouraging."
Senator Blair of New Hampshire,
who was apj ointed by the governor of
llfat state to 611 the vacancy caused by
the expiration of his own term durin
a recess ef the legislature, has been
admitted by a strict party vote, except
that Senator Jaes of Florida voted
with the Republicans. This vote es
iablished the Republican position upon
one point which would be presented
ill cast Governor Moody should ap
point a Senator from this State. It
hows that' the Republicans think that
the expiration of a term constitutes a
vacancy which the governor is author
izei to till. In. New Hampshire the
legislature meets in Jane. The ad
iui i -n of Mr. Blair therefore signi
fies nothing'as to the-other joint, that
would arise in case of an appointment
from this State, except that th Dear
erats would probably oppose admission.
In the new(XLIXth) Congress, the
House of Representatives is controlled
by the Democrats, and tho Senate by
Republicans. The House stands: Re
publicans, HO; Democrats, 182; Green
back-Labor, 1; Fusionist, 1; vacancy,
I; total, 325; majority, 1G3 The po
litical complexion of the Senate is as
follows: (Mahene and Riddlebtrger
being classed as Republicans): Repub
licans, 41; Democrats, 34; doubtful, 1
These are the figures given by the New
York "Tribune" Almanac. There, is
little doubt, however, that Illinois will
continue to be represented in the Sen
ate by Logan or some other Republi
can. Should the Legislature fail to
elect a Senator, the Republican Gov
ernor of tht State will fill a vacancy by
Tht paper World dpclares that the
ten plagues of a newspaper office are
bores, poets, cranks, rati", cockroaches,
typographical errors, exchange fiends,
book canvassers, delinquent subscri
bers, and the man wbo always knows
how to run the paper better than the
editor doss hianielf.
The Democratic Prps of this State
with its usual mrnJicity is claiming
that Hon. Sj! Hirsch wa defeated for
the position of TJ. S. Senator in con
sequence of his nationality. This con
teiuptible attempt to create race pred
jadice is bat another of that party's
alms to advance its own interests at
the expense of its honor, as we feel as
mred that not a single Republican
withheld thtir support from Mr. Hirch
ou account.of his nativity, liu solely
and directly in consequence of bis resi
dence in the great city of Portland,
that is tht home of our present Sena
tor, but like the "horse leach's daugh
ter" is still crying more. And if the
Democratic party had so earnestly de-.-ired
Sir. Hirsch's election, it could
have given him a handsome majority
by uniting with the Republicans,
whose support was already assured
him. Our jewith citizens are a pros
perous, self-sustaining, independent,
peaceful ard law abiding people, who
have never taxfd us with the care ef
paupers and convicts. It is true that
they hold to the traditions of their
fathers, and also true that a people
who are true to their rcligicn are true
to country and hume be it native or
adopted. Mr. Hirsch is a man of
great commercial and financial ability
and an honored party leadvr, and
would have been our electeJ Senator
1 9-day if be had lived in any other sec
tion but that from which our other
Senator was chosen.
SoMtrrniN'o Needed. The differ
ence detween most men as to their
success is whether they have energy
and push. The same is true of any
set of men, of any town or city, or
any section of country. Jackhon
is such a county, Rogue river valley is
such a valley, that to make known its
irtues to those that love the sill one
of the most common passions if men
will be a benefit to every one living
here, a financial benefit to every mm
that owns a piece of land. It is a
known tact that each average irami
grant in capital or capital creating
farce is not less than $1,000, and that
in. sending forth a knowledge of Jack
ton county, the county and every indi
vidual in it will be benefited. To in
crease the wealth and importance of
ibis end of Oregon it is only for us
each man's duty to see that some at
least of the many thousands of immi
grants coming to this roast, nnd who
eagerly seek for informa'.ton about
different parts of the country, should
le able to learn of us by reaching them
with a pamphlet descriptive of Seuth
ern Oregon. Sueh a pamphlet should
be immediately gotten up sitting forth
all parts of the county just' as they are.
Every townsman in the county, and
every farmer in the valley should give
their aid, for by so doing they will
crente a demand for what they have,
people will come here for homes, and
when our lands are wanted they can
be sold for a fair pree This concerns
everybody. What do you sa J
