In order to Bonienhxt justify himself for not returning one cent of his salary back
lato tbe county tteasury, as he pledged himself as above to do, Mr. Uaaley now,
with brszen effrontery, sets forth the claim ot bring the author and finisher of the
bill passed in the legislature providing for the reduction of the salwrir of the offi
cers of tbis conntv. Tho facts are tbe man, through whom Gazley claims hs urged
the pasge of the bill, Representative Wilson, opposed the only measure intro
duced for this object, which bill was drafted and introduced by the Douglas county
republican senator, the late Hon. A. W. Heed, and it was only through the per
sistent personal effort of Mr. Reed and the union representatives, Wonacott and
Conn, that Mr. Gaaley's righl-lmod man was prevailed upon lo support the Reed
bill, ever word of which can be proven conclusively. The Roseburg Review oven
reputes tbe claims of Mr. liazley in its issue of May 3, l'HX), when it said :
THE review's admission:
"Senator Reed introduced a bill reducing and re-adjusting
the salaries of the officials of Douglas county and
in order to insure its passage the Union representatives,
Wilson, Wonacott and Conn, introduced no measure, but
came to the support of Mr. Reed's bill."

ABILITY AND INFLUENCE.
The nomination of Hon. Thoa. H.
Tongne is a just tribute to an able and
conscientious public nervant. The pec
pie of Oregon ara beginning to under
stand that if tbey would be a fac'.or in
congress they mut bate a man at bar Of
ability and influence. They are obesrv
jng the course of o'.her states and are
profiting by theit experience. It has
long been a noteworthy fact that a
number of tbe small Eastern states have
for many years had an overshadowing
influence at the seat of government, and
simply beeaoao tbey selected men of
ability aud kept tliBtn there. It takes a
number of years of active life in a fixed
and prominent position for a man to ac
quire national notorioty and influence.
Oregon is young, its destiny i jJ9t shap
ing, and it needs the best talent and in
fluence it can command to stand in tbe
breach and plead its demand. Xu bet
ter man than Mr. Tongue could have
been eelected, and voter should see to it
!that be is elected. Med ford Mai!.
As the reports come in from various
parts of the connty regarding the can
yass, being made by tbe republicans, the
fact presents itself that ons of tbe mott
popular candidates on the ticket is Capt.
F. B. Hamlin, nominee Jor counly school
superintendent. Tbe captain is a gentle
man without a single olemiah of charact
er, a true patriotic American citizen, and
man eminently well qualified . and
equipped for tbe office to which he
aspires. The manner in which he wis
deprived of the office alter being elected
by a large maj ui'.y at the last election,
j intly entitles him to tbe suffrages of the
people generally at tbis lime.

IT. IS A HARD YEAR.
Tbis is going to be an aniol hard year
for the fellow's who's a democrat in Spo
kane. He can't hurrah for the soldier
on Decoration day that's militarism :
be can't help hoist tbe flagon the Fourth
of July that'a imperialism; he can't
tell his friends ta come Webt and take
up land on the Colville Reservation
that's expansion ; he can't welcome tbe
Nation's President to tbis city that's
McKinleyism; he-can't cheer for the
Queen of tbe Industrial Exposition
that's 'be pomp of monarchy ; be can't
eyen get in witb tbn rest of us anil brag
about the wonderful way Spokane is
gaining in population, and wealth, and
industry that's prosperity. And when
tbe election returns come io well, he
can go away out behind the barn and

CAMPAIGN LIE NAILED.
Willis vs. Crawford.
I notice that tbe Review claims to
have been informed in eomn mysterious
manner, that I have signed or made an
anti-Hermann pledge, in case of my
electlou as representative of this
county. This coming from tbe Review,
I bardly thought it worth a denial, bat
as some people not informed as to tbe
Review's reliability might believe it, I
denounce it as absolutely false.

SOnETHING DEMOCRATS FORGET
Some democrats seem to have forgot
ten that in tbe two democratic platforms
made at Charleston and Baltimore in
i860 was this plank: "Resolved, that
the rieruocratio party is In favor of tbe
acquisition of the Island of Cuba, on
such terms as will be honorable to our
selves and just to Spain at tbe earliest
practicable moment." Dallas (Tex)
Missouri populists are holding a state
Convention Kansas City and will put a
Straight ticket in the field. They declare
that fusion with the democrats will ntfv
er occur again in that state.
The arrest of Hon. A. M. Crawford on
list Saturday At tbe instigation of Wm.
R.Willis, wH'i as follows: In January,
18'JO, testimonv was taken in a civil act
ion between Wra. R. Willis and A. M.
Crawford and the case is now pending in
tbe supreme court. It is alleged that
Mr. Willis recently demanded some kind
of a fettlement with Mr. Crawford in
tbis long pending case and upon the lat
ter's refusal Mr. Willis swore out a war
rant for the arrest of Crawlord upon
the charge ol perjury. The district
attorney, Hod. Geo. M. Brown, being in
attendance at circuit court in Ccoa
county, bis deputy, Attorney J. E. Saw
yers, examined all the testimony in tbe
case, and declared there was no grounds
for tbe charge preferred by Mr. Willis,
end moved to dismiss the case. The
preliminary hearing occurred before city
recorder, D. f. West, who over
ruled tbe motion. Deputy Dis
trict Attorney Sawyers declared in open
court and in his motion tlat he was well
satisfied that the prosecution was solely
without cause and from malicious mo
tives, however, Recorder Weit held the
defendant to appear before the circuit
court. From tbe fact that both parties
stand high in social, legal and political
circles in tbis city this case has created
considerable interest and it is freely
charged on the streets that political de
signs, or motives to influences tbe higher
court is behind the whole affair, but as
far as the Plaisids i.tn Is concerned, it is
in no position to maka any definite
charges lo this direction.
