REAP, AND UASD TO YOCB SEIQIIDOR.
We do not deal in sensations, but in
sober facts aud cal m reason. Readers of
the Farmer, Citizens of Oregon, these
things are published for your good; as
friend forewarns friend, so we forewarn
you. If vou profit not thereby, It shall
not be our fault. Although Holladay,
with his wealth of millions, hxs seen lit
to make war upon us, struggling by
day's work for dally bread, and with
base libels attempted to ruin our busi
ness, yet we shall tell you sober truth
without any admixture of malice. And
tlds brings us to consider,
HOLLADAY AS A LAW-MA K E R,
It has not been forgotten by the people
of Oregon, and especially not by the
people of this city, how Holladay went
into the Legislature of 1S03 and secured
from that Assembly tho land grant
franchise on which the Oregon and Cal
ifornia Railroad has been constructed.
It was the shame of this city, and the
disgrace of a majority of that Legisla
ture, that Holladay and his satellites
held high carnival In Starkey's Block,
with wine, whisky, women, and feasts,
to which were added, not Infrequently,
midnight revelings and drunkenness.
Easy-going members of that Legislature
were wined, dined, made drunk, and put
to bed, to wake up supple tools of the
great Holladay. Those of a financial
turn of mind were enabled to start
stock ranches, and saloons, buy elegant
homesteads, pay oft old debts, and even
have $2,000 checks to bet on "poker,"
albeit they came up to this city as poor
as church mice, to serve tho people
at three dollars a day. We have heard
It said that the little resolution passed
for him cost him fifty thousand dollars
in gold coin. The corruption and un
lawful means tiien made use of by him
are notorious and undeniable.
But here bear It in mind that we have
never denied, and do not now denv. tho
right of Mr. Holladay to seek by honor
able and j air means the legislation he
desired. But, mark you again, it is to
the unlawful, criminal, and wicked
manner of his proceeding, and to the
dangerous corruptions he made, aud
makes use of, that we do object and pro
test. Then, for the first time in the
history of our fair young State, was the
vile leaven of corruption introduced into
our halls of legislation. Then, Citizens
ui wilfully uiu itiv jrvriovu ui nwii-1y-
influence insert his fangs into the heart
or Oregon polities, to eat and destroy
with its loathsome virus the purity of
our laws aud elections aud the honor of
our public men. Such was the moral
code used by Ben Holladay in his efforts
as a law-maker in Oregon: and such will
ever bo his evil influence until voted I
down by the voice of the people.
But, looking further, we sec that the
resolution of the Legislature of 1SC3 was
of no uso to Holladay without a con
firmation by Congress; and to secure
such ratifying act of Congress, to give
Ii i til the lands patented to his railroad,
Mr.nolladay agreed foand acccnlctl the
following proviso :
"And provided further, That the lands
granted by tho Act aforesaid shall be
sold to actual settlers only in quantities
not greater than one quarter section to
one purchaser, and for a price not ex
ceeding two dollars and fifty cents jcr
This is another Illustration of law
making, and which brings us to consider
HOLLADAY AS A LAW-BREAKER.
Why did Congress put on these rail
road lauds the above restrictions as to
away all capital not in his own interest,
aiul effectually checked Immigration.
No independent banker, manufacturer,
or capitalist is fool enough to come here
and invest his money where he can
plainly see that his fortune and Invest
ments may be ruined at any time by
this factious and unreasonable railroad
king. They have stopped coming. No
iwor man, knowing the state of affairs
here, will come to pay Holladay more
for timber and brush land than good
prairie will cost in Kansas; and especi
ally not when he learns that not a pas
senger or a pound of freight can get in or
out of the State without paying tribute
to one man, whose only rule ot action is
wight, and not right. Call you this a
beneficial state of affairs '. Call you the
man who produced It a benefactor?
Nay, verily; he is Oregon's worst enemy.
HOLLADAY AS A POLITICIAN.
Every citizen has a rieht to his politi
cal views, and to the free expression of
them. But what right has Ben nowa
day, a citizen of the State of New York,
to be interfering in the politics of Ore
gon? As the owner of property here,
ho has a right to demand equal protec
tion for property along with that of our
own citizens. And now we ask, has he
not always had it? Where is the citi
zen, where is tho party, that lias ever
proposed any injustice to him, or one
rule for him nndadiffercutone for other
people? There have been two sessions of
the Legislature since ho came here, in
both of which he sought for and re
ceived beneficial legislative favors to
himself. And where was the member
that proposed to do him an injury? The
fact is that Ben Holladay has been
feted, and honored, aud petted, and fat
tened by the people of Oregon as no
other man ever was by any other State.
And how has he returned our hospital
ity? Look at his malign and corrupting
influences in our Legislature; look at
his violation of the laud-grant act, in
quadrupling the price of laud3 upon
poor settlers; look at the employment of
his "red shirts" in the i'ortltinu elec
tions; look at his recent interferences
in tlie primaries of a political party In
the same city; look at his hostility aud
malice spit out upon every man that
does not obey his orders and wishes;
look at his compulsion of men to give
up tiieir steamboats, hacks, and drays,
or submit to a ruiuious opositiou. His
political platform is "Rule or ruin,"
and, for one, we propose to give him
a good square fight to sec whether he
The ballot-box offers you tho only
remedy to free yourselves from the im
position of this unreasonable man. And
we appeal to you, citizens of Oregon, to
pass not these words lightly by.
You men of bronzed cheek and horny
hands, in the sweet of whose honest toil
your daily bread is earned, how do you
like tho picture? Are you ready to do
Holladay's bidding at the polls, and
thus perpetuate his power over your la
bor aud earnings?

The National Woman Suffrage- Con
vention reassembled in Steinway Hall
at 11 o'clock a. sr., yesterday, Airs. H.
B. Stanton in the chair. Mrs. Isabella
Beecher Hooker spoke on "Blackstoue
and Women," arguing that women were
as capable of managing legal all'airs as
men, if they were only permitted to
study and practice law. She cited sev
eral instances of women becoming
prominent in the 'legal profession, in
other generations, and held" that what
man has done, man can do, aud woman
Jfrs. Duniway of Oregon followed
with a short speech, in which she said
that Horace Greeley was, In her opin
ion, the man most deserving of the sup
port of e'ery honest man and woman in
America. Mrs. Stanton then said that
Horace Greeley was a man she highly
respected, a man whoso whole life had
been devoted to the cause of lifting up
the laboring classes and procuring for
them their rights; but she thought his
journal, which was the most jwwerful
in tho land, by its overt attacks upon
the cause of Woman's Rights, was like
a dagger striking to their hearts. She
hoped that a man possessed of so many
virtues and good qualities would recon
sider this matter.
Mrs. Blake then proposed an amend
ment to the resolution passed by the
Convention on Its first day's session, so
strongly censuring the Tribune for the
stand it had taken on the woman ques
tion, anu moved tuai tue clause pertain
ing to that paper be stricken out. Tills
amendment was lost. A vote ot thanks
was then tendered the Tribune for Its
impartial report of tho proceedings of
the day bcrore. The ouiccrsor tlie Na
tional Woman Suffrage Association were
next chosen for the ensuing year, Susan
B. Anthony being elected President.
The evening session was addressed
by several prominent advocates of
