On the 4th of this month, nn im
portant political contest in California,
was decided by ballot, and the vic
tory is not ours. But the cops, are
jubilant over the result, and well they
may be. For, with an actual force
O far sa than our own, they have
caused the Union party of that State
to strike its colors, and have borne
off the palm of victory, triumphantly.
The result is indeed humiliating,
but it is hardly necessary for us to
inquire why this is. The reason is
so prominent, thatdt requires no great
sagacity to fathom it no superior
political acumen to account for the
difference of about 27,000 votes be
tween this, aad the preceding election
in that State.
The Union party of California
was manipulated to the bitter end.
Un-scrupulous combinations, and
wire pulling cliques, have disgusted,
and for the time being, driven from
its ranks, enough candid men to pro
duce this result. Such men have
nc$ changed their political views, but
doubtless, have suffered the enemy to
obtain this victory for the purifica
tion of their own party. The time
is past, when designing and dishon
est men can manipulate the party
dnto clique nominations read out
of the party, all who dp not endorse
their operations, or who might stand
in the way of some of their own
number and then whip the lay
0 members iilo the support of their
nominations. Such operators have
taken advantage of the enthusiastic
loyalty of the people, to effect their
object, and in some instances have
succeeded. IJu it appears that some
of them have lost sight of the im
portant fact that lie mass of the
Union party is composed of honest,
intelligent, and free thinking men ;
nen, who can be neither hoodwinked,
mor forced into the support of such
measures and men.
The people ot California demanded
fair and honest nominatiors, but did
not get them. The self conceited
leaders, were working exclusively for
their owg benefit not for tho good
of ftie. party, nor tho country, and
the nominations were made accord
ingly. The peopfS disclaimed these
nominations, and the leading Union
Journals of the State echoed this dis
sent of the party, and called for a re
formation of the ticket ; but the call
was unheeded. Causes always pro
duce natural effects, and the natural
result of such a coarse was as might
have been expected indeed was pre
dieted, a victory in favor of the De

one. At that election
there will be not only important local
offices to fill, but there will be men

Then, again, the result of the next

FROM OLE TRAVELING CORRESPONDENT.
Monticello, W. T., Sept. 0th, 1SG7.
The pleasant little country village
from which I date my letter, is situs
ated on the Cowlitz river, about 2
miles from where it empties into the
Columbia, on a low, flat bottom, be
tween the two rivers. It is a pretty
place, and has a pretty name, and
yet, I think it must have been named
at random ; because the name, when
applied to the place, is certainly a
misnomer. I am told the word means
" little mountain," and this is about
the only place I have seen in this
part of Washington Territory, which

why it was so named, and he did not
really know, but " reckoned it was
because it had to be named;" and I
acquiesced in his sage conclusion, in
wardly rejoicing that it had escaped

I do not wonder at the woe begone,
haggard look of many of the citizens
of this Territory, when I remember
how they are compelled to twist
their faces in pronouncing the names
of their homes. I really believe some
of their countenances have grown into
shapes corresponding with the angles
and knots in the geographical nomen
clature of the country, so that a close
observer may generally know where
man lives by the shape of ;ns
I said this is a pretty place, and so
it is, at this season of the year. Uut
from the piles of drift wood seen over
the country, I am led to the conclu
sion that it is sometimes rather moist
under foot 'though the people say it
docs not over-flow here hence, again
am led to conclude : that drift wood
ows in heaps, happily distributed
around among the neighbors for fuel.
The soil in this neighborhood is very
rich, and all kinds of grain, fruit, and
vegetables, grow in great luxuriance,
and being so near the Columbia find
a ready market at good prices. The
grasses all do well, and there are some
line dairy ranches near here, where a
verv superior quality of butter and
cheese is mad?.
Monticello is visited daily by steam
boats from Portland, and just at the
present time erjoys the luxury of a
lively opposition between the O. S
N. Company's steamer Julia, and the
llangcr. The result is quite favorable
to the traveling community, who can
get a nice steamboat ride from Port
land to this place for fifty cents. 1
am somewhat surprised that pleasure
seekers do not come here more fre
quently than they do, instead of going
to Astoria. The hunting, fishing,
bathing, etc., is equally as good here,
the climate is pleasant, the hotels first
rate, and the expense but a mere trifle
those in quest of health and amuse
ment should come and see the coun

is an opposition line, which makes

justify, carrying passengers at a
cheaper rate than is charged by the

any where that the ground is a little
damp, and I would suggest the idea,
that it would bs well for her to car

bia river water, for places where the
dew is light. This plan might not
be as good as that described by
r. w. c." in the Orcgonian, as
adopted by the boats on the Wil
lamette river, but it would certainly
be as feasible as the one adopted by
tho man who attempted to lift him
self over the fence by his boot straps.
I never heard whether his attempt
was successful or not.
The spirit of rivalry, and opposi
tion is not confined to the steam
boats and stages here, but it has re
cently exhibited itself in the starting
of a rival town about a mile above
Monticello though they are so near
together, and are so interspersed with
orchards and gardens, meadows and

" which is which. ' and the only point

bors open their fair grounds near
Ilillsboro. They are a genial set of
people over there, and it we do not

be because we can't. We shall then

Lakes in. the Mountains. The
party to which the ladies were at
tached, who lately made the ascent of
Mount Hood, tested the lakes heard
of in the Cascade Mountains for
trout, and after an hour's fishing were
in possession of nearly a hundred
fine spotted beauties. Those lakes
abound in fish.
More or Less. The type in this
office last week revolted at the idea
of stripping off four or five thousand
feet from the summit of Mount Hood
and hence caused us to say that Col.
Williamson made our pet about 21,
000 feet it should have been 11,
000 yet we are not satisfied about
the correctness of these figures.
The Cascade Wagon Road Party.
The Albany Journal of the 10th,
says: " Yesterday Sam. Headrick
and his accompanying party returned
from an examination of the road as
far as Des Chutes. All arrived

game abundant." We are not in
formed what was said of the road.

as we have in the State " Portland

Oregon City, generally, they are a
little better than tho best we kuow

School Lands in, Linn. The Al
bany papers nearly went crazy over
the sale of school lands in Linn
county, and after a good deal of cuss
ing somebody for not advertising the
sections, did it themselves. Speak
ing of the result of the sale the

woolen fabrics, but what intelligent
person expects us to do so if the
Copperhead party gets control of the
nation, and take off the wool tariff so
that our wool growers and factory
hands will be forced to compete with
the half-paid laborers of Europe and
Indians in Disguise. It seems by
the Walla Walla Statesman that tho

are now confined in the Auburn Jail,
where they will remain until the next
term of the District Court.
Marshal Feeler. Speaking of the
death of Marshal Keeler, the Moun
taineer says : Marshal Charles H.
Keeler was a brave and good man,
and was noted for his ability as de
tective and for his general efficiency
as a police officer. If he had a fault,
it was in being over zealous in the
performance of his official duties.

The Dejeat. Speaking of ths de
feat in California, the Oregonian
says : The lesson taught in this case
should not be lost. Honesty in pol
itics is the only safe policy. A party
is never strong enough to make it
safe for its representatives to do
wronsr. Selfish, ambitious and unfit
men must know that trickery will
not succeed. The masses of a party
must make its nominations. Politi
cians must not cheat them out of their
choice. In selecting men for candi
dates, regard most be had to their
fitness and reputation . Cliques and
cabals to advance individual interests
must be kept down. Otherwise
party which is proud in its record,
and confident in its strength, may
meet defeat when great principles de
mand its triumph.

The conservative Convention which
met at Montgomery, Alabama,
adopted as a platform the resolutions
recently passed at tho Convention in
Pennsylvania ; mainly promising to
cherish, protect and defend the Con
stitution as the only rightful govern
ment ; acknowledging the Supreme
Court as the only arbiter of all con
flicts of powers under that instru
ment, and that each State has an ex
elusive right to proscribe the qualifi
cations of its voters. The Conven
tion appended a resolution of its
own, expressing an intention to culti
vate relat:ons of harmony between
the two races, to deal justly with
blacks and instruct them in their du
ties to themselves, to society and
their country, appealing to them to
place trust in them and to deal cau
tiously with strangers, who bear no
evidence that they arc honorable, till
they are better known.
A Fine Edifice. The M. E.
Church building at Portland is rapidly
advancing. We are informed it is
expected to cost about $30,000, of
which the larger part is already
raised, and the balance will be forth
coming. We understand that a lead
ing business man down at the Empo
rium on being asked to take stock in
this new Methodist " ship of Zion,"
offered to come down handsomely if
they would run the steeple up a few
feet higher than that of the Presby
terian, which has been reckoned
rather the crack thing in that line,
illustrating the old proverb 'com
petition is the life of trade." No
doubt the new Church, will be a
handsome affair, creditable to Port
land and our State.

Jim Cavanaugh. This old Min
ncsotian is reported to have been

gress from Montana. He Is "an old

The Railroad. The Willamette
Yalley Railroad seems to be a fixed
fact. Arrangements have been made
by the company here with Eastern
capitalists, by which the money to
build the road is to be furnished on
a mortgage of the road and rolling
stock. The material for the first
section of twenty-five miles is already
purchased and probably on the way
by this time. As soon as the bonds
are completed, which the company
are now preparing, and seut East,
additional material will be shipped.
There is one satisfaction about this
arrangement, at least, the people of
Oregon can lose nothing, as the
builders are secured only by a mort
gage on the road, which will be ut
teily worthless until the road is
built. A friend who has recently
returned from Salem, says that after
a careful investigation of the whole
matter and an examination of the
company's books and papers, he has
concluded that we are soon to have
a railroad. As to where the road
will run, no definite information can
be had, as there has as yet been no
authorized or definite survey. If it
is to be a Willamette Yalley Rail
road it will be built in this part of
Oregon, if not it is perhaps as likely
to lead off from the head of naviga
tion on the Columbia.

What is the moral of this defeat?
The Union party is not strong
enough to carry bad men into power.
It cannot afford even to take doubt
ful men, and on the strength of old
excitements endeavor to run them
into position. It can take up its
best men and win every time. Fail
ing to do this, it insures for itself de
feat. There are 10,000 Union men
in this State, as is seen by the results
of the last election, w ho will not be
trifled with, but who will be found at
the polls with the right ballots when
good men are presented for their

ters. The operation of this palatable rem
edy upon the stomach, liver and excretory
organs is singularly soothing and conserva
tive. It regulates, recruits, and purifies
them. Dyspepsia in all its forms yields to
its control and invigorating properties, and
it is recommended to mothers, enfeebled by
the cares and duties of maternity, as the
safest and best remedy they can "probably
use. In all the crisis of female life it will be
found eminently useful, and elderly persons
will derive much more benefit from it than
from ordinary stiun lants. Sold bv the drug
