Our contemporary has often spoken
elurrinsiy of the G. A. R. and murmured
because, as it alleges, many persons get
pensions who ought not, and many more
get more than they deserve. And ye!
me xteview was at urn time receiving a
fair share of pension money in the way
of business that it would not have got
bad there been no pension money dis
bursed in Roseburg.
Tbe fact is, bad it not been for tbe
pension money paid here and railroad
disbursements to its employees, Rose
burg would have suffered greatly and
felt tbe financial distress more than she
has. The money put in circulation by
these two sources has been a veritable
God-send to Douglas county, and light
ened tbe financial distress through which
we are passing.

What the People There Think of the
Glide, Or., May 27, 1890.
Editok Plaindealkk: In the Review
of the'.2lst appears an article, "Baxter
was Overmatched." It states that "Ills
remarks were a tissue of falsehoods from
start to finish." Now a spirit of fair
ness and justico demands that the Re
view must not judgo other people by its
oich reputation for truth and veracity.
Mr. Baxter read sec' ions of tho Declar
ation of Independence and of the con
stitution of the United States. Docs
tho Review call theso falsehood's? Docs
not the Review know that when it can
make no other answer to the facts pre
sented by Mr. Baxter than that "you'r a
liar" that reasoning people are getting
disgusted with its campaign of vitupera
tion and vilification? Slander, false
hood, vituperation and vilification are
tbe patented weapons of Romanism. Is
the Review seeking tho honors (?) of
Romanism? As to Mr. "Sbloeman com
pletely breaking the force of Mr. Bax
ter's remarks," such is not truo. Pet
haps, because Scbloeman tried to get in
to the Rosoburg Council of tho A. P. A.,
and becauee they had tbe right to select
their company and black-balled him
when he tried to become an A. P. A., he
itched for a chance to get e yen on them.
But how did be do so. By beginning bis
remarks thus: '"I am an ignorant, hot-
beaded dutcliman. I have nothing to
Bay about tho principles of the A. P. A.
I think they are good." Scbloeman not
only convinced many of the audience of
tbe truth of Mr. Baxters remarks, but
positively affirmed parts of his remarks,
while taking exceptions to others.
Schloeman's effort was the long sought
for chance for revenge, because the A.
P. A's black-balled him on June 29,
1S9L and he did exact! v what others of
his ilk have done, because they were for
tunate enough to get in but were after
ward dishonorably expelled.
Now as to N. T. Bridges. Bridges did
not fay he was personally acquainted
with the Booth family, as claimed by the
Review. Even if he did make this al
leged statement, it rtust be remembered
that neither Scbloeman nor Bridges could
nor did they present any documentary
evidence to substantiate their remarks.
Again, when Bridges commenced bis re
marks he did so in thesa exact words :
"I am an ignorant man. I am a Southern
man and a democrat. I have a history
at home that gives the account of the as
sassination of Lincoln, and Booth was no
Catholic. Booth did what I or any other
true Southern man would have done.
He said bo would kill Liucoa and be
did it, and G d it, I glory in his
spunk. Ho did just what ho said he
would do and' I would have done the
same tiling." Jlte. faurratt, who was
hung for the assassination of.tlie immor
tal Lincoln, said: "The death of Lincoln
is no more than the death of any nigger
in the army." Here in Douglas county,
at the Welter Ecboolhouso on May 19,
1896, N. T. Bridge?, one of the cham
pions of tbe Roseburg Review, declared
to the world that be "gloried in tbe as
saEaination of Abraham Lincoln," and
that he would have done the eame thing
himself. What will the old soldiers
think of this, and what will ihev do
when it is backed up by the Review by
patting such men as this man Bridges on
tke back. This is how Scbloeman and
Bridges refuted Mr. Baxter's arguments.
The Review says .Mr. Baxter "at
tacked the county democratic ticket, and
advocated tbe election of the A. P. A
ticket." Mr. Baxter never spoke one
word against the democratic ticket nor
did he advocate tbe election of any
ticket in either of his two lectures. He
never spoke one single word either for
or against any party ticket in Douglas
county. Now what does the Review ex
pect to gain by each misrepresentations
as this? Docs it not know that Mr.
Baxter delivered a second lecture at tbe
Free Ferry school house and that both
Scbloeman and Bridges were there? If
they were a match for Mr. Baxter why
did they not reply to his second lecture?
Docs the Review not know that it has
made no friends by its article, in Mt. Scott
precinct? Does it not know that the
two large audiences that greeted Mr.
Baxter cannot read its article without a
feeling ot shame and disgust? Does Jit
not know that even those who were op
posed to Mr. Baxter, and who will
countenance fairness and justice feels
ashamed of this kind of championship

to put his name to Mich au infamous falsehood
the Review says, "We teach justico and liberal
Ity." Great God, what a misnomer! We propose
to Rive these malicious lies to the public, for the
reason that they arc published by the Review as
its favorite method, and seems to ue the only
kind of campaign it is capable of conducting

Lie No. 1. Mr. Baxter never made the state
ment that a "Catholic Institution burucd at
Ban Francisco and that 100,000 Wluchcstcr rllles
and three or four cur loads of cartridges vtcrc
stacked on the sidcwnlk."

President Harrison to appoint a commission to

their employ 2000 sub-ngents, who received 43
cents for every icrson they Induced to migrate
to tho United Mates, and that It was found out
that the Romanists deposited tho money In
these banks for this purpose.
Lie No. 5, Mr. Baxter never stated that the
Catholics offered "somo three or four millions
armed soldiers when tho disturbance was going
on between the United States and Venezuela."
Docs not this Ignoramus, this lying "farmer" of
tho Ilcvlcw, know that there lias been no dis
turbance between tho United elates and Vene
zuela? Mr. Baxter stated that to prove there
were secret armed and political orders In this
country inimical to tho interests of the people at

who believes in the prosperity and wel
fare of the nation, stand firm next Mon

falsehoods not only about the nominees

soreheads, so-called republicans, who
failed to receive anything at the hands
of tbe convention or the several primar
ies. - But so mote it be. The G. O. P.
can well afford to ehake off these barn

ficial report of Mine Inspector Hazeltine
filed with Gov. McKinley on August 12,
1S95, shows the condition of tho miners
of Ohio and illustrates the situation
throughout the country :
According to Mr. Hazeltine's report
the average pay received by a miner in
Ohio iu the year ending Juno 30, 1S95,
was $15.20 per month. That would giye
an income of $1S2.40 pDr year. Out of
this the miner pays from 3 to ?7 per
month rent for a hovel that he and his
family exist in. Average the rate of rent
$o, this leaves him $122.40 a year or $10
per month, 34 cents a day, with which to
provide food and clothing and educate
his children. The average number of
members in a miner's family is eight,
making 44 cents a day for the support of
each member of the family, allowing the
coast of each meal to be 1 cent. We
suppose they eat 3 meals a day ; they
have tho extravagant sum of 1'4 cents
left to furnish each member with all the
necessities and comforts of life. We
hayc made the liberal allowance of 1J
cent for each meal, fctmnge theso
