THE POLITICAL SITUATION.
Under this bead tbo Itovlew belabors
the Pi&indeali:r and republicanism
with a gusto tbat .ougbt to satisfy a polit
ical zealot. Its self praise is its most con-
Bplcuons character. It boasts of what it
has dono for the dear taxpayer, and with
brazen effrontery, decries republican
newspapers, especially the Plaindealek.
Tbo Review nets upon so disinterested
motives all for reform. It cries "fusion
for reform," but self interest is its aim.
This blatant pseudo-reformer is crying
lustily and loud lor reform by appealing
to the peop.o-to defeat the republican
nominees for office. If republicans are
beaten it hopes to gain a little more
The Reviow saye, ".Not a single pledge
bo unequivocably given was kept, by the
republicans elected to tbo legislature."
That is false. Our representatives re-
deemed their pledges so far as the house
waj concerned, by re-enacting the mort
gage tax law exempting indebtedness
from taxation, and had we but had a
republican senator from this county in
stead of a demo-populist, a man tbo Re
view' helped elect, that bill would doubt
less iiave ras?cd the senate and beeomo
jsTtie Beview Tefers to a query' of a tc-
callod republican who, through tbe ite
view, wanted to kaow if the Plaisde.leb
would '.Mabor.ior tbo redactioq of tae ex
penses of the county clerk's office some
$2,0OJ. Snch a question was too silly
for furthsr consideration. Tbo questioner
himself would not want the offico of
county clerk at a salary 0! foOO, the
amount ofterMeducting &,000. AaJ, if
he would undertake it for such a snm it
would bo dear work for tbe county. . The
people of Douglas don't want such'Jiand
llng of their records as such a man would
doubtlees make. There is no man in
Douglas county capable of doing the
work who will do it for any 300 a year.
So we dia not desm such a question
worthy of notice.
The PtAiKOEAixs believes in paying a
county clerk, be he republican, demo
crat or populist, wno may bo placed in
charge of that office, such a salary as
sucL work is worth. Sucli piping for ro
form comes with bad grace from the Ke-
view wnen Jir. i. 11. snendan, a mem
ber of tbe Review's party daring bis man
agement, got from $3,000 to ?G,000 a year
fojrjhojvork jandet the
was a republican legislature that changed
the fee to'.t he salary system, cnltiug down
the expenses about bait.
Why did not our new reformer of
the Review advocate reform when he
was "pocketing the scads?" Let him
who can show a clean record talk reform.
HERHANN AND APPROPRIATION.
Querist, in the Capital Journal, assays
to show that Mr. Hermann is a failure
because only $30,000 bad been appro
priated for tbe improvement of tbe Wil
lamette river during his term. That
cuts no Bguro in the matter at all.
Prior to Mr. Hermann's term in con
gress, Querist himself acknowledges tbe
appropriation of f 34, 157.93. Now that
sum was only what his predecessor and
the senators thought nececsaiy; aud so
with tbe 30,000 since Mr. Hermann's
term, is very likely all that was deemed
necessary, by Jlr. Hermaeu and Sena
tors Dolph and Mitchell, for, if $30,000
were insufficient tho senators were more
at fault than Mr. Hermann ; clee we
must. allow, that Jlr. Hermann had more
influence in securing that 30,000 appro
priation than both senators. The real
facts in the case are that 30,OOJ were all
that our entire delegation in congress
deemed necessary ; and more than that
amonnt would have been robbery.
Therefore, eo far as Querist'.; argument
goes on that line, he stultifies himself.

At a special meeting of Umpqua Camp,
No. 0, of Indian War Veterans, held at
Roseburg, Or., March 5, J 890, the death
ot M. R. Hathaway, grand adjutant, was
made known, when the following resolu
tions were unanimously adopted :
Resolved, That the members of this
Camp, of Veterans, learn the sad news of
our late comrade's death with heartfelt
sorrow,, yet, bow submissively to the will
of our Great Commander above, who we
fervently hope has granted our late com
mander , "A vested right," in His holy
realm, according to the promises giyeriJ
in his sacred text, and to which bis. fel
low soldiers who are now "left in the
much thinned ranks, live in tbe full be
lief to join. him when the trumpet sound,
Tempus fagit." :
Onr comrade, died at Vancouver City,
Wash., March 2, 1696, in the 74th year
of his age, after a series of bodily , ail
ments, but in the full yigor of bis well
trained mind. He held tho office as
giand adjutant, of tho 1. W. Vet's
camps, for several yeare, and we all bear
witness to, bis courtesy and untiring en
ergy in promoting tho interests of the
camps over which be superintended, and
(or whicli we hold his memory dear to
our beans.- In his youthful days he
served as a volunteer, in the Indian War
of 1855 and '56, and acquitted himself as
an obedient, faithful and honorable sol
dier of the republic, lie crossed tbe
plains to Oregon in 1352, settling in the
northern part ot the state.

W. B. Clarke.
A correspondent of tbe Review of
March 5, says in regard to the candidacy
of W. B. Clark for tho nomination for
senator, that he, Clarke, owing to
business engagements will not push his
claims for nomination. I am acquainted
with Clarke's position with respect to
his candidacv nnd well know, that in
the presentation of his name for th
nomination of senator, that he will not
push his claims to an extent that would
create inharmonious action m the
County Convention. W. B. Clarke':
friends have placed his name before the
public for the nomination for senator in
good faith, aud they propose to submit
his name to the County Convention, and
cheerfully abide by its decision, and
whoever may be the nominee, they will
give him a hearty support, and put forth
effort for his election

HOP BUSINESS A LOTTERY,
The Two Leading Industrie
Oor prosperity depends on our own in
dustries. Tbe two leading industries,
hop and prune growing, with their yield
in abundance, have undoubtedly a ten
dency of putting the inhabitants of this
county into better circumstances finan
cially, and those who are interested in
tbe financial affairs of tbe county and
themselves should consider it an import
ant object to do what ia within their
power to sustain the continuance of
these two industries, and keeping them
in a prosperous condition. There is no
doubt in the minds of a thinking people,
that it 13 to cur advantage as a whole to
Owing to the lluctnatiou in tbe price of
hope this season, tbe grower has experi
enced a heavy loss, resulting iu a great
discouragement among hop growers aud
tbo plowing up of a number of yards,
trantforming the yard with a sure crop,
into a com field with an uncertain crop,
and depriving a large number of our
citizens of employment.
About 7 cents per pound ia estimated
to cover all ex peaces on a yard (allowing
45 cents per box for pickmc) from the
beginning to the end of ono season.
Should there be no preat adyanco next
season, ot which it is not likely, the
picker should take a certain per centage
of the price received in sale, assuming
50 per cent. If sold for 4 cents (one box
weighing 13 pounds dried) pickers real
izes 26 cents per box, if sold for 7 cents,
and upward picker receives 45 cents per
The grower has no loss, and if the
picker is energetic enough and this
method be adopted, tbo industry is
placed on a sounder basis.
The prune yield may deviate in pries,
henco we must guard agaiust all depres
sion ; in which economy is the principal
factor. The art of prune culture must be
studied. Cultivation, etc., with great
care in packing and shipping, and, the
most important of all, the selection,
building aud operating of an evaporator.
The Mote evaporator ia re.-oni mended as
being the best and most perfect in every
particular, of all dryers. The equaliza
tion of heat, caused by the rotatory move
ment of trays and fans, the fruit being
dried quicker and more regular than br
others and with less expense.
E. E. LaBrie, a very extensive prune
grower of Garden Valley, after studying
the matter thoroughly aud examined the
various kiuds of dryers, has made a
wise decision iu selecting the J. W.
Mote evaporator, lie will build oi.e of
150 bushel capacity and use a gasoline
engine for rotatory power.
Highest of all in Leavening
These two leading industries must be
studied and investigated with more care
in the future. T. D.
