OUR NEXT SENATOR.
There is many reasons why the repab

should by all means bare a republican
legislature at the coming se3sion, as there
is a United States senator to elect.

The republican county ticket nornina
ed by a reunited party in a most bar'
ruoaiuus convention, is oue of the strong
est tickets ever put in tho Held for the
Barrage of the people of this county,
and especially are the republicans to be
coDgratulited upon healing their ticket
with tbe name of a man of such well
known at.ilitr, Hterlinic int-gritv and
untiring energy, as is posee-awt by Hon
A. C. Marstri". I lis accurate eHiimate
of men, his cler thought an I fnr-eeeing
mind, coupled with rip experience
makes hi.ii a v,iluabU counselor on
all public matters, r.ml being
naturally po.-tretseJ of genial and courte
ous manners he tiaci surrounded himself
with scores offiithful friends and ad
mirers, and from this fat, and this alone,
the less popular and f-iucea-l il leaders of
the opposing forces delight to hurl tucb
choice epithets as "bora," "dictator,"
etc., at him.
We Iia7e always found Mr. Marstera
evrr redy and willing to Usitn to, and
respect the opii.ionB and thiiories of otli
ersaod heis entirely (reafroiu any nar
row prejndice, or dictatorial cliuraeti'i
istics. He is u hhread, careful, econom
ical b'leines) man, strictly honest
and upright, and miy be relied up
on to do bis whole duty as a law
maker and conservator of the iiitrestx of
tbe people wtioiii hu will repteent in the
Oregon senate. Taken 'i 1:1 il there is
no reason why th entire, ticket eh mid

W. J. I'.ryan is a wonderful man from
any standpoint hois considered. H?is
a womier physically, becuusu he can en
dure more fatigue in a campaign than
any other ninn in the United States. lis
is a wonder intrllt dually. He has the
power of grasping strop points and tnak
ing them plain to tbe listener. Heis
Iramatic, recouiceful and forceful.
Many people whotuant 1). in tiers were
moved 10 tears by his pathos, to anger by

iiiagiietism, his excelled! e i'l the ait of

th ir homes, tbe sv-.re arraigmuent of

eiated in their former belief, if anything
inr,re stubbornly than before. It is oue
thing to point out iui tvil bred by a
party, but it is quite another thing to
provida an aJeij-nte remedy for that
evil. Mr. Bryan denounced the trusts,
so do most of the people, but be offered
no remedy itr thoso evils unless by. in
ference it be tho trt i-rph of the Demo
cratic parlv at the polls 1:1 November ;
Men cinnot bi ridiculed nr drivsn in

Men, in spite of their superiority t i the
brute creation, neverthcleti possess
some of the cbuacteri sites of the 'heists
of tbe field over which ihey were ain-ient-ly
given d minion. You can toll a hog
through a gap in the fence with a little
corn ; try to drive it through that gap
and you scon burn the dotiuition of o'-
etiuacy by a pracical demonstration.

old style of pti.itical haraogUM sti i in me
as in the day of "Tipp'-canoe and Tj-

convert people, if, indeed, it ever bad
any. The nespapers A tody ho tho:-

little left for political speakers to
do, unless it i;e to inform a class'
who cannot or will not read. Nine-
