Tbe date for the republican county
convention in drawing near, and to far
there has been very little said in regard
to candidates for the various county
offices to be tilled at the coming June
election. We are of the opinion that a
better and more satisfactory ticket can
I nomiuated, when there has beeo a
full and free discussion of the merits of
proproeed candidates for a reasonable
time prior to the convention. When
this is done the delegates go to the con
vention with some idea as to whom
their constituents prefer to have nomin
ated, and of the fitness and availibility
of the persons whose names are placed
lief ore tbe convention. We Lave no
sympathy with the plan of jumping op
candidates for office on convention day,
and nominate them without any lime
or opportunity to become acquainted
with their ability or fitness for tbe posi
tion ti which they are nominated.
Nine timet out of ten tbe man who
prates tbe most about tbe office seeking
tbe man, has a three pronged lightning
rod of bis own ready for use and ia hop
ing to be struck by forked lightning him

announce the fact that he is a .candidate
he ousut to have friends wbo wonld do
it for him.
Fisher, of tbe Review, pays the Plain
dealeb a big a compliment when be
refers to it as a middle-of-the-road
paper, and to it editor as a middle-ot-tbe-road
republican. A middle-of-the-road
republican, or democrat, or , popu
list ia one who bolda hia political prlnci
plea above the spoils of office, wbo be
lieve tbat hia party stands for tbe beat
interests of tbe people, and ao believing
wonld prefer temporary defeat to victory
tory won at the sacrifice of what be be'
lievee to be right. A futioniat ia one
who either has no political principles, or
who cares so little (or them that be is
ready to barter them for tbe aake of
office; political street-walkers hawking
their wares where tbe market promises
most. Yes, tbe Plajndiaub ia middle-of-the-road
republican paper. The
Review is a fusion organ.

architect, has reported tbat this state

We are in hop. that the situation is
Dot io bad as has been predicted. We
do not believe that there is imy present
intention on the part of the company to
remote the division termiuaU from
Roseburg. It is true that for the present
some of the passenger crews will change
at Riddle. We think there should to a
public meeting of the cilius called at
which the matter can be discussed from
a business sUndpoint and a committee
appointed to investigate tho nutter acd
take any steps which may I ueccesaiy
in the premises.

of the attempted escape of two convicts
from the Oregon slate ptuiten'iary and
staets that on their recapture I hey were
bound to the whipping post, wLcte caen
received "3 lashes on his bare back
50 lashes is all that prisons of average
nhvsinue can endure without utter col
lapse and probable death. Ihe inhumani
ty and barbarity of such punishment
can be in some measure understood.
The horrors of the Spanish inquisition
call to cur miud to greater puuiehmcnt
than this, and when it is remembered
that the puoiahmeut was for do greater
crime than cn attempt or; tbe part of the
convicts to regain their liberty, without
force or injury to any one, it ought lo
cause every lover of Li'uiauity to blush
With one or two exception?, every
northern state has long agj liecardei
the whipping post as a means of punish
ment and it is not to the credit of this
state that they cling to this relic of bar
barism. County treasurer Krater refuses io re

County Treasurer Frater and Commis

asked County Treasurer Frater to resign ?
IIow could be refuse to resign unless

are concerned, nothing that "Toiler"

distracting one iota from their well
earned reputation as economical and

The Rogue River Courier, speakiug of
the fusion state conventions now iu ses

are waiting with btei lieath to see
