Why do not noma of thi states where
tbe Democratic party has undisputed
sway set the couotry an example in its
opposition to Hosts? The;e is not
democratio state tbat does not charter
trusts. Tbe party is gret to war and
complain, but iuflnitiral in practice.
It yon read it in tbe fusion aheet Uday
it la invariably tbe case tbat you will
read an apolo- for the same in tbe
next issue. 1 Eugene Guard and
Roseburg Revi -- bear the unenviable
reputation of I 4 two of the most ir
responsible ihw in tbe state. Ttiey are
kept busy correcting false statements.
It has been conceded by men in both
parties that Geo. W. Diinmick is entitled
to and will te re-elected treasurer of
Douglas county. He Las faithfully per
formed all tbe duties devolved upon him ;
he lias rendered a faithful account of ms
stewardships and tbe people generally
recognize in him honeety and integrity
consequently wi 1 retain him in his
pretent position for another term.
In order to some hit justify bitmelf 'or not returning one cent of his salary back
into the county tieafory, a he pledged himself as aboye to do, Mr. Uaxley now,
with brazen effroutf ry, sets f jrth lhe claim ot bting the author and finisher of the
bill passed in tbe legislature providing for the reduction of lbs salaries of tbe offl
cere of this county. The facts are the man, through whom tiasley claims be urged
tbe passage of the bill, Representative Wilaoo, opposed the only measure intro
duced for this object, which bill wa drafted and introduced by the Douglas county
republic n senator, the late Hon. A. W, Reed, aud it was only through ILs per
sistent persoual efforts of Mr. Reed and the union representatives, Wonacott and
Conn, that Mr. Galley's right-hai d roan was prevailed upon to support tbe Reed
bill, ever word of which can b proven conclusively. Tho Itoseburg Review even
reputes tbe claims of Mr. Gazley in its issue of May 8, l'JOO, wben it said :
THE review's admission:
"Senator Reed introduced a bill reducing and rc-ad
justing the salaries of the officials of Douglas county and
in order to insure its passage the Union representatives,
Wilson, Wonacott and Conn, introduced xonicasure. but
came to the support of Mr. Reed's bill."
THAT HOBO LETTER AGAIN.
The fact tbat Hon. Tha. H. Tongue
baa served two terms as congressman
from tbe first district and is a poor man
is evidence sufficient that he is an honest
man. Some men become rich in con
press at a salary of $5000. We have
known tbem to become rich in ooe term
they go there to make money and then
retire that is their constituentr retire
them. Mr. Tongue does not beloog to
this claa and tbe people of the first
district Instead of retiring him are going
to return him for his faithfulness. Lake
- It is rumored that a number nf miners
at the Gold Bug mine in the northern
lar of Josephine county, have reins
ured to vote in Glendale precinct in this
county, and, if their votes -should be
challenged that tbey intend to create
eerioos trouble. It is certaioly not very
consistent for tbe fusion party which
poses as a reform party, to advise its
alherents to vote illegally and it their
votes are challenged to create a riot or
Bfcriout disturbance. Tbe law should be
enforced to prevent illegal voting and
lhe fusion party should aid in its enforce

epiaode.wtth the low instinct of thu puny
cur, wuo guides ita deft nies blurts on
something about tbe editor of ibis paver
beiug a liar, and that such a communi
cation had never been presented to this
paper. In proof of our a'.lf-gationa we
bej to refer the Review aud our i eiders
to the union candidate for coot-tattle,
Sam Tool e y, who knows a great deal
more about this letter than he prob
ably cares to tell. Sheriff R. L. Stephens
is also fully aware ol the existence
of this libelous letter and the traitorous
and treacherous motives prompting its
origin and presentation to the Plain
dealer. Fisher will now pruti :o ef
ficient evidence to refnte this statement
or we will b) undr tbe painful necessity
of branding him a liar and provit g htm
as such, and Ihui add another Uurel to
his growing reputation for unreliability.
A FUSION LIE.
It is reported that the Dootb-Kelly
Lumber company lias employed l.'U J tip

Here is a lie made out of whole cloth.
There Is not a Jap nor a Chinaman em
ployed in any department of work hy
the Boo b-Kelly Co, at Wendling. This
is on a par with the campaign method
employed by other fusion sheet in the
county and ii a boomerang against the

The spectacle of a full fledged license J
brokerage business being conducted in
.connection with a "reform" county
clerk's office, is enough to paralyze a
marble statue. There are a grat many
tax-paying voters who think they are
jastasmucb entitled to an occasional
f nvestmeut in county warrants as is this
licensed county clerk broker. However
aa long as tbore is a two per cent com
mission in sight, the warrants are going
to be all gobbled up in tbe clerk's office
for the bank. Anyone doubting tbat tbe
clerk's office is in tbe hands of money
changers have only to investigate. Are
the voters of this county coin,; to perpet
uate and encourage this kind of thing?
We think not.
Tbe republicans made a ie choice
when they nominated A. R. Mattoon, as
a candidate for the legislature. Mr.
Mattoon, our farmer candidate, in a gen
tleman of exceptional ability, a ready
aud convincing speaker, and is cloely
identified with tbe industrial interests of
the county. Mr. Mattoon is an untiring
worker, belongs to no faction, a in' o'
raatore experience in public matter and
of whom Douglas county may eie-t
much good service In the legislature.
His election is one of th certainties of
the Jnoa election. No lees caur be said
