The republican coooty thke is tie

pat in the field in many yi-arr. It can t e
supported conscientiously not ouiy by

The manner ia which Mr. Fisher
garbled up the republic n platform in
hie report of Saturday's cooveutico.J
reflects little credit to hinisfil or the
Soviet. For instance, at th o?ginoirg
olthe platform be mtkm it read, "There
fore, we congratulate the republicans,"
when it should bave been, 'We con
gratulate the at ate of Oregon." etc.
Bryan has come and none and little
was the fusion cuee benefitted by hi
adyent to this city, indeed, so bitter was
hia arraignment of the republicans that,
if any thiog, the opposite was the result.
Owing to his physical condition
he was a disappointment from an
oratorical etandpoiu', t the lets than
3500 psopl who assembled to hear his
speech, tha majority of whom were Rose
burgers. Oar review of his speech was
crowded out f thin i woe.

Many democrats will vote the republi
can ticket this year on account of tbe ex
pansion issue. The Bry unite convention
ia ctriain to oppose expansion, and this
will cause a bolt lu that p.trty as big as
the otiO produced by the repudiation
declaration iu 1806. A large portion of
the democrats of the country are on the
republican side in regard to the nccea
stone of territory made in t he past two
years. The flag-furling which the Kan
sas City convention will declare (or will,
be shown to be au unpopular policy
among the voters of the Uuited States.

We further i.eclareour unrompromis
ing oppoiiin lo the Imperlali-tlo ten;
denclee of the present republican ad
ministration which would hold as oolon
ial poatesfliona foreign lands annexed lb
opposition to tbe wishes of the Inhabi
tants thereof, and conquered at an ap
palling ttoet of public revenues and blood
sned. This policy of imperial conquest
has iucreaaed our standing army upon
the land several fold and trebied our na-
vt neon the seat, growing evidence on
every hand that tbe enormous expenses
attt tiiiant npou tbe increane of army an!
armament mint, under this policy, be
come permanent only to be met by the
ever obnoxious stamp taxes that only an
emerging of foreign wai should justify
We further charge against the policy of
iinprrialitim thut it ia contrary to all tbe
time houored, uud time tried principles
of,cur govern men t. and violated alike'
the letter hh. 1 the spirit ol the declara
tion of independence which asserts that
all governments derive thtir just powers
from the consent o.' the governed. ,
We pledge ourselves o wage an on-
ceasing warefare against all the trust
the money trust, tbe industrial trusts
and the international landgrabbtng trust
We are in favor of tbe immediate con
struction, fortification and control ol tbe
Nicaragua canai by tbe United States.
We favor such control, supervision or
ownership by the government ol rail
roads and telegraph lines as in the due
progress of time may be lound necessary
te protect the people from outrageous
and unjust exactions in the shape of
freight, fares an 1 tods.
We favor admendmenls to the federal
constitution, specially authorizing an in
come lax and providing for the election
of tbe United States senators bv a direct
vote of the people, and we pledge our
legislators to vote only for a candidate
lor United States senator who will pup
port with bis voice and vote such amend
We oppose government by injunction
and the blacklist, and favor arbitration
as a means of eettliug dispntie between
corporations and their employes.
In state and local matters we would
call especial attention to tbe following:
We pledge our legislative candidates
to eapport an amendment tj the state
constitution providing for the enactment
of that system of direct legislation
known as the initiative and referendum
and the imperative mandates. We be
lieve that thereby much vichus legisla
tion might be nullified and many good
laws placed upon our s atuie hoots.
We denounce the republiciu party of
Ortjcou for repealing the mor't.ige tax
law, thereby exempting a large
amount of foreign money from taxation,
and corref pondiuly increasing tluu al
ready heavy burden upon resident tax
payers. We demand the immediate en
actment of said mortgage tax law, and
that a deduction of indebtedness where
thi-re ia a corresponding taxable credit
be allowed in acsepuients !or the pur
poses of taxation.
We denounce as an outrage upon th
taxpayers, tbe district attorney' salary
bill passed at th last eesMon of the
legislature, fixing tin calary f r the
secon I judicial dixtrict at fQ0i per en
naai. This measure was lobbied through
h legislature by a combination tf llioe
odicuU of tl.e f tale who neglected ttu-ir
