Having examined these sledge-hammer
taps critically and impartially, we
concede that our condition is, or ought
to be, one of pulp, and we. are really
ashamed to tly in the tace of nature by
pretending to be In a healthy and or
ganized State after such hard uage. It
never occurred to us before that it was
just the thing for Smelling Committees
to twist their noses sky-ward and de
clare that they smelled something.
jyhen they didn't ; we were opaquely
impervious to the consideration that
Mr. Amis, and his military colleague
would never have signed the Report
had they not known how pure and
true it was ; but our greatest error was
in being ignorant of the fact that G ro
ver and the ilercury people had them
telvet examined the Report, and had
pronounced It a work of unusual litera
ry merit. Ignorance is no excuse for
crime, and it was in our criminal want
of Information on this subject that we
became a prey to sledge-hammer taps
f of tlie direst, force. And then how
wickedly foolish of us to believe tliat
the people, who pay the printer, should
care anything about how the Report
was made or what testimony was in or
out. It is clear enough now : they
were to sicken with the salute of an
imaginary stench whenever the Smell
ing Commission were observed to be
wreathed with indigent wrinkles to
lose themselves completely lit the petti
fogs of the Commissions' Attorney.and
only emerge in time to. rote the' 'Dem
ocratic tickeU'June 3d,' 1872.
We call upon O. J. Carr to rise to
explain. Did you as a defeated candi
date and sorehead, conspire with John
F. Miller and others, Monday evening
May 6th, to bring out Sara Allen and
F. . Eldridge as fuion candidates for
Representiitive3?' Did you promise di
rectly or indirectly" to vote for F. E.
Eldridge or any other. Democratic can
didate for Representative, in consider
ation of John F. Miller's, or any other
Democrat's vote for Sam Allen, Billy
Laughead, etc? Did you promise for
yourself and for other Republicans
that you and they would carry out the
arrangements then and there made be
tween yourself with certain other bolt
ing and disorganizing Republicans,
and John F. Miller and certain otlier
Democrats . If so, who are tlie Re
publicans whom yon thus pledged?
Don't be bashlul, O. J. Carr. Come
to the trout and let Republicans of Ma
rion -county know whom you liave
promised to bargain oil', in favor of the
election of filler's G rover to the U. S.
We have Just discovered what Undo
Sum. .Allen has been having worms
about he wasn't nominated for Rep
resentative by the Republican Conven
tion. He is now an independent can
didate, and looking, of course, to the
Democracy .for votes. His trouble
about Billy Laughead was, of course, a
mere subterfuge and an excuse behind
which lie entrenched himself, tor the
purpose of disorganizing the Republi
can party. .Sow, that he is an inde
pendent candidate against tlie regular
Republican wmineesy without excuse
or extenuation, the Republicans of Ma
rlon eounty will know how to. value
hitn. Let Republicans note the col nci
dence, that his name appears at the
sameatme with that of F. E. Eldridge,
Democrat, and Jn the Mercury, Demo
cratic newspaper. Does, any body doubt
that this lias been done by collusion.

The oatnmittee met, 'and after hearing

the charges were hot mistained, and by

rosed to sign the call or to enter into

called upo .tit) vote for Deiuocratic

Mrt)ed dowa to about this conclusion
with thU clAspof Mr. Laugliead's
frieiids : That they would vote straight
for Jos. G. Wilson, the representative
ticket, aud tiie couuty ticket except
for Clerk; for clerk, tliey would vote
as tliey pleased.
But there were a few men, includ
ing O. J. Carr, Sam Alien, and others
whose names we shall probably men
tion sitortlr in this connection, who
never ceased to conspire with the
Irnocracy for a fusion ticket. They
made promises to John F. Miller, R.
II. Dearborn, W. H. Watkinds, A.
Bush and- other Democratic leaders,
that they wonM bring to the support
of such a ticket, 250 Republicans,
though they knew such promises could
not be fulfilled. Finally, they did
agree with tlie Democracy to bring
out Sam Allen and F. K. Eltlridge to
gether, aud they pledged to this ticket
the support of Win. M. Laughend and
his friends. Whether this was done
by and with tine advice and consent of
Mr. Laughead, we cannot say. It is
time now, for hint to come by the front
and say whether it was or not.

nomination for Slierilf. Now that it
is over, we doubt not the late oppo

The Jacksonville Times ; charges Gov.

Mercury, to hoist the name of Judge
Prim among the names of candidates

Tlie reason ot the omissieit Is that Gro

bery which tlie Litigant law legalizes,
we will take the time, four weeks, and
the number of squares, two. For
publishing such a notice, the organ Is
allowed $5 for tlie first insertion and
$2 tor each of the three subsequent in
sertions, making a total of $11. This
is ati outrageous price and is more
than any of the metropolitan papers
charge, and considerably more than
double what any ot the country litigant
papers can get tor mercantile adver
tising. For instance, the Mercury,
the litigant organ for Marion count,
will not pretend tliat it can get any
such price for any business advertise
ment. That paper certainly does not
charge its business nitrons who are
not compelled by law to abvertise in
it, more than halt tliat sum. Our
charge for a two square advertisement
In tlie Weekxt Statesman, four inser
tions, is $5 ; does the Mercury charge
more titan tliat for a mercantile adver
tisement ? And ye,t, under the Litigant
law it-gets (11, and the' party adver
tising has not the opticu to advertise
in the Statesman where lie could get
It done for $5. We doubt not, the
Farmer would also do it for $5. ISo, a
person Iiaving legal advertising to do.
is robbed under Democratic legisla
tion of $G, every time he has occasion
to publish a two square advertisement
for four issues of the litigant organ.
The Illustration Is so simple and plain
that even the dullest man can see tlie
infamy and outrage there is in tlie
Democratic Litigant law.

arrangements had been made with the
Oregon & California Railroad Co., for
a grand Fourth of July Picnic Excur
sion, trains to start from Eugene on
schedule time on the Fourth, and to

tions to Portland. At Portland, steps
have already been taken, to arrange tor
a general celebration, oa the largest
gcale ever attempted h that city. Tick
ets will be issued, good for round trip,
the return to be made within five days,
at very low rates less than half the
regular fetes. Cars will l)e supplied
at ail tlie towns and stations to accom
odate such as may wish to go in
local delegations. ' Arrangements have
also been made for an extension
of the excursion, fbf each as may de
sire to go, to either Astoria or the
Dalles., The entire double' excutslou
can be made within the five days cov

Tlie traitors to the Republican party
were In council with the lemocracy
la- night and tlie result of their In
trigue appears in the form ot an "In
dependent ticket, " which means simply
a Democratic ticket, to be manipula
ted in favor ot L. F. Grover for the
U. S. Senate. While this ticket cou-
tains the names of some Republicans,
venal enough to agree to and accept
the political infamy they are earning,
we are satisfied that It also contains
the names of others who will spurn it
as an unclean thins;, contamina
ting and disreputable. Such names
have been used, of : course,
without consultation or consent.
and we shall look to see tlietn fitly re
pudiate the insult tliat lias been offered
them. The entire ticket will be found
hi our advertising columns under the
bead of Independent Candidates."
Let Republican who would not sec
die Legislature bartered off to L. F.
Grover, now show the mettle tbey are
made of. Let them come to the res
cue of the Regular Republican ticket
against this unholy and disgraceful al
liance into which a few unprincipled
Republican traitors would lead them.
We have been told tliat, in attacking
O. J. Carr aud the little coterie of Cay

everybody will understand Jhat We are
not attacking anybody except tlrose
men who liave gone into it fusion and
trade with Democrats. ' IS o Republi
can who is not engaged in such fusion
need conkler himself hit. As for
tliose men wlx) have entered into a cor
rupt league with Democrats, they are
in the same boat with the natural ene
mies at tlie Republican party, and
uiust erpoCv the same treatment given
to enemies.' If they choose to let tbelr
angry passions 'rise,, we shall neither
