the one wherein he urges on congress
lliu publication of the penrion list

amount ol pel, ion. This seems to meet
with considerable favor, especially among
thoee journal which, during the war,
had no word of cheer for Ibe boys at the
front and hnvo not had for the surviv
ors since Appomuttox. These will be
uuanimous with Commissioner Evans,
as will thoru individuals who bit and
snapped aud snarled at our beets from
61 to '65.
"But there iaanolhei class who will
not approve, who will in fact earnestly
proteet mid bitterly retient the venom
of the thing it it i accomplished. I re
fer to the veterintf, and those who honor
them not with a hypocritical tongue
only. They are mouth yet to be reck
oned with. 1'orter's census of 1890
showed, I believe, 1,100,000 survivors of
the Union armies, though I have not
verified the figuies. They are going fast
probably 00,000 a year but tlisy have
onmerous sons and sons-iu-law, and it is
not extravagant to say that in matters of
vital interest to the veterans and their
honor, -.000, (XX) men must be reckoned
with, lio slow, gentlemen, go slow.
"The commissioner did me the honor,
after lie hud made his recommendation
to congrees to ask me what objection
there was to publishing the list, and I
answered him as I would answer the
president or any one else, that, in brief,
it would be a damnable outrage. These
men served the nation in the hour of its
grent x.'ril, they suffered and they are
on the pension rll of the nation through
the operation of laws only enacted by
the congress. Many of them were pecul
iarly disabled by wennds, injuries, or
diseare, utid it would be hideous to
spicad tho fads before the publio gars;
facts w hich, w hile in no way dishonor
able lo tho peusioner, are none the less
humiliating to a proud spirit. This is
no imaginative picture. I am speaking
who red 1 know. I have in my mind's
eyo the statues of two major generals in
this country before wl.ich our people
stand in admiration and veneration, and
1 know their surviving relatives would
rather those statues would be demolished
than have the horrible facts of the mutil

has the government (o publish the pen

a boy? They are creditors of the coun

There were then, In round numbers,
310,000 names on the roll. It made five

Notes by the Way.
Millwood, Feb. 2(1. 1898.
KnnuH I'laindkalkb : When I wrote
last 1 was at Canvoaville, and here I
am. I went to Uolenbaogb's, Lew Aeh'a
mines and the hydraulic are busy piping
and 1 hope them a good clean up. At
Kiddle I met our coming slienir, J. It. It.,
who is as genial as ol old. F.verybody is
for Bouae. I found a nnit in the south
end for Nichols sgsin for commissioner. I
crosaed the Mjrtls Creek mountains over
lo Willis' Golcb, and I then went to
liice Gulch and staid all night with Ern
est Kice and he showed me an old
bouse that stood the Indian attack in
1850 The doors and one of the windows
still show tbe bullet boles. I enjoyed
my visit there very much. I then went
over to Olalla and staid at James By
ron's, the coming demo-pop county
judge. But Jim says no; he has enough
to do at home, ihev might go farther
and do worse. Mr. liryon i one of our
best citizens snd an old soldier. Our
precent couoty judge is still in the lead.
ao is Johnny Miopo, but in Joe Lyoos,
Johnny will find a worthy foe, as I know
both men, and they are gentlemen. I
got to eee my old friends, the Coats' fam
ily, who lived at Drain. Minnie is Mr.
hlmer Wells and grandma lives with
her. Will is on tbe farm in Ten Mile,
snd they were as glad to tee me as I was
them, and I shall long remember ray
I traveled along the Olalla creek and
mining has made it as muddy as Myrtle
and Cow creek, so much so that tbe
South Unipquu is red with muddy water.
I wish tbe mines of Olalla much success ,
ss they have expended thousands of dol
lars among the people. I crossed over
into Camas Valley and alaid at Geo. A.
Smith's, and he is a Father Perkins
sound money republican. Why not send
Perk and biui to balem next legislature?
I Inlt bis house with many uood byes
and started for looking Glass. I failed
to see my old friend, Geo. M. Prior, so I
traveled by and in snow some two inches
on the Csmas mountains to Gurney's
mill and there took down lo Looking
Glass. I staid at old Mr. E. Morgan's
overnight. Mr. .Morgan is a true blue
republican, and I shall for many days re
member my pleasant visit.
Next dav I sot as far as hA La line s.
He has hiyou work, some 2.300 trees to
spray. He has a nne unit dryer. I
called on Uncle Karci3se LaRaut. He
was well and O. K. politically. I then
went lo Wilbur and saw my democratic
friend, Geo. Grubbe. They say George
will be on the union ticket for tbe legis
lature. Tbe nasby. Perry Burt, holds
bis own with bis demo-pop friends. I
got over to James Coles and found him
sanguine on the election being correct in
Jane. Jim has always been one of tbe
stalwarts. I came to Coles Valley, and
saw old Mr. Shsmbrook snd Alex
Churchill. Would have gone to Mill
wood but want to go and see the dear
ones at home in a day or so. I saw and
staid all night with Pat Murphy, and
Pat is the same Pat. He probes up us
republicans every now and then. That
is all right Pat, maybe sometimes we
need a scolding. How about the demo
pop? Mr. Murphy has a nne farm and
everything looks thrifty. I am at Alex
ander's and looking out at tbe muddy
Urapu.na that goes to the tea. baimon
fishing is followed down this wsy by
many. I was surprised in travel inn to
see such large oak and madrono tiees,
some surelv will make 35 tiers of wood.
And again the evergreen blackberry are
becoming wild in ull parts ol tbe county,
and on South Umpuua there are wild
grape vines running up to the top of Ibe
trees. At Ten Mile in iJoats was pull
inn out tbe sweet briar with horses.
Oh yes, it was a pretty eight to see the
North and South Umpqua one clear as
ft crystal tbe other red wltn mud. rbey
run along separate, hut as in evil associa
tions they became one in color.
Our Next Governor.
It is said coming events cast Iheir
shadows before. I he masses of the re
publicao party, as shadowed by the signs
of tbe times, are wakiug up to a reueser-
tion of tbo true principles of the party
Tbe party is detei mined to cut loose
from the corrupt practices which nave by
degrees been thrust upon it by political
schemers at divers times and u'aoee.
That little scheme of populists and
dniri untied republicans in holding un
the last legislature, which culminated in
Gov. Lord's appointment id II. W. Cor-
bett United States senator; but tbat has
failod to tbe deliuht of every honest re
publican in the state. This has been ac
couiplialied through the earnest protest
of tbe honest voters of Oregon a protest
sgsiDBt seating a man who had lent
himself to so corrupt a Bcheme. This
will teach schemer for place, that, like
Othello, (heir occupations have none,
Had Mr, Corbett been seated it would
have placed a premium ou fraud and
corruption. This form of rascality has
bsen given a black eye, and tbe bonest
votor breathes easier, thank God, takes
courage and rejoices. They now are
casting about for a man not given to
political intnuue, a man ol probity und
political purity as well as ability to
guide the suip oi state tor tno next lour
vests. His star is rising aud scintillat
ing in brilliancy above the horizon aud
lo which all eyes are now directed. That
star on the iiolitlcal horizon Is T. T.
Geer, the Marion county farmer, the
nsxt governor of Oregon. Him, the
farmers of Oregon will delight lo honor
