The Lesson of Last Monday.
Whether Tongue is elected or not the
result furnishes a great object lesson to
tho people. It is morally certain that
candidates lor office must furnish some
ovidenco of their fitness for the place
sought in other ways than their ability
to secure a placo on the ticket of the
party with which they claim to affiliate,
where the area of their constituency em
braces an extensive territory.
Local politicians may wheedle and ca
jole, coax and persuade, and by prom
ises of patronage and tho bribery of a
few, succeed in riding into office. But
Buch a courso, now that party prestige
has lost its binding forco, ia impractica
ble. Party fealty has become Ja thing of
the past. Eyen the democratic party,
whose chief hold upon the masses in the
days of its glory, has, in a measure,
passed away. Its once powerful grip
has been loosened and it no longer
chokes the liberty of thought. Many
are leaving the party outright while
others remaining will not support men
for office not of their liking.
The republican partyjwith all its ad
hesive forces, protection to American
labor, American interests and sound
currency has been unable to keep a largo
portion of the party in line, as the vote
for Tongue clearly showB when it was
known throaghout the district that bis
nomination was secured by a combina
tion against Hermann, the nnmistakable
choice of the paily.
The Salem Statesman and the Marion
county republicans generally, do not
stand in a very creditable light. The
Salem. paper bitterly fought Binger
Hermann and the Salem delegation pre
sen ted a candidate at Albany and had
tlie audacity to urge bis nomination.
They refused to give one vote for the
man we could have elected, and finally
the whole delegation went to Tongue.
Benton and Lincoln stood by Hermann
to the last, yet look at the result. Ma
rion county with over G.000 votes, gives
Vacderburg a plurality, while Benton
coanty with lees than 2,000 votes, rolls
up a plurality fur Tongue of 270. Lin
coln county also gives Tongue a fair plu
rality Douglas, Mother strong Her
mann county, gives Tongr.e 550 plurality.
while in Clackamas, half of whose dele
gation at Albany bolted their conven
tion's instructions and went into tho
anti-Hermann combine, Vanderburg
goes ont with 500 to the good. Linn
county, whoso delegates in tho republi
can congressional convention were anti-
Hermann, goes for Vanderburg with
over 1.0 JO plurality. longuea own
county gives him 37 plurality. The nice
combination of sagacious paliticions who
put up the job at Albany, bnt did not
have influence cnoagh at home to carry
strongly republican counties for the re
publican candidate, should hasten to
retire to private life. A little more of
such brilliant 'management would totally
wreck the republican party in this state.
In Thursday's Review, referring to a
flattering notice of Patrick Collins pub
lished in the Plaindealer, it sueeringly
replies: "As Mr. Collins is an Irish
American Catholic, the Plaindealer did
not dare to publish this complimentary
notice before election."
To this contemptuous fling at the
Plain-dealer it will eay: The Plain
dealer never stops to inquire
what a man's religion cr nationality is
before it will honor him "to whom
honor is due." Unlike the policy of the
Review, a defender of the K. P. A.
party, ever on Uie alert to show subser-
vency to his holiness, the Plaindealer
has the courage to "do right because it
is right," without appealing to religious
prejudices, bigotry and fanaticism for
party gain. The Plaindealer had the
fairness and moral courage to publish
the meritorious acts of Collins as a citi
zen, not as a creedist; as a patriot not as
a religionist; and because the Plain-
dealer did not make his religion prom
inent and refer to it as the moving cause
of his action, tho Review, a fawning sy
cophantof popery, must take tho Plain-
dealer to task for omitting to mention
that "Mr. Collins is an Irish-American
Catholic." Tho Plaindealer did not
Know what Mr. Collin's religion was and
does not care a bean what it is.
