up to tiie cannon's mouth and de
clares that the litigant law is a good

"We claim that the law is a good
one, that It Is a wholesome economical
law, that it does, in feet, what Its title
denominates, " protect litigants."
First, it protects them by fixing the
price of printing at a lower rate than
was charged before the law went Into

densome on that class ofnersons. Sec

WHAT VIE KVIW AROIT BLOW'
A lew days ago the Dolly Vardens,
under the training of John F. Miller,
' were blowbard-lng around this city In
' regard to the immense defections of
Republicans from the Regular ticket,
at Lincoln, at Silverton, at Aurora,
and other outside points In this county.
With tiie hope tliat such representa
tions would help the Dolly Varden
ticket at5alem, tliey industriously ped
dled the falsehood that hundreds of Re- j
publicans in those precincts liad de- j
clared in favor of the Independent
ticket. The truth is tliat at Aurora
and Silverton, there are absolutely no
Republicans who will vote the Inde
pendent ticket, and there are less than
a dozen such in Lincoln precinct. At
Butteville. their candidates declared
,tbat there were large numbers at
. iJbampoeg and Fairfield who would
vote tiie Independent .ticket. At
Chauipoeg their allies were at Fair
field. At Fairfield, they were at Sa
)em', where they declared that more
tliau- a huudred Republicans would
' vote for the pielmld thing. Thus,
their strength has been all the time
just over yonder iu some distant pre
cinct. The county has now been
r pretty well cauvsssed, and the result is
the finding that tiie numbers of Repub
lican who propose to give up Marion
county and the State Legislature to
John F. Miller, Jo. Teal & Co., are not
to cqtceed thlrty In Salem, ten or
twelve in Lincoln, - perhaps a half
dozen about. Uervals, and there the
count stops dead still- -It is not true
that there is any Dollyj Varden strength
anywhere else, or other than we have
mentioned. ' It is an old-time Demo
cratic expedient, (learned doubtless of
the Chinese) to fight their battles
mainjtr with uolae and stink-pots.
That style of warfare, however, does
not succeed very well with Uie Anier-
, lean people, as Miller's, Grover's and
Teal's allies found out between the
years ISG1 and 1805. The blowhard
dodge is one of the most effectually
played-out things In the world. The

Attorney General Williams
Makes a Powerful Speech;
YillainotM Reeorl of Oregon
racy Folly Exposed. '
St Dolly Vardens; There.
Accordine to appointment, Attorney-General
Williams, came down on
yesterday morning's train and went
out to Silverton where he delivered in
the afternoon, the strongest, clearest,
most argumentative and effective
speech we have lieard in this cam
paign. . The notice of his appointment
mid been too brief to enable die news to
travel generally over that part of the
county; but there was, notwithstand
ing, a large crowd present enongh to
entirely fill the commodious hall In the
Odd Fellow's building. There were
present, also, quite a number of ladies.
Mr. Williams spoke over two hours,
during the whole of which time the en
tire audience remained with scarcely
an exception, interested to the last.
The speech was a searching and scatli
ing review of the frauds, and thieviugs
and general corruptions of the late
Democratic Legislature and the Dem
ocratic State administration. He ven
so thoroughly that even the dullest
mind could see the robberies It lccali
zes and the wrong it inflicts upon the
people. He showed that it was enact
ed not only to enable pauper Demo
cratic newspapers to live on oi tne
people' but that it was enncted at the
instance and for the benefit of L. F.
G rover who wanted the power of pat-
roiiMcre It would irtve nini to assist hun
in the prosecution of his political for
tunes. . He sent home and clinched the
charge that Grover and his accomplices
deviled the law as an engine of power
in serve ins personal ends; to enable
Grover to rob the people that he might.

prospects. He then thoroughly ana

Showing that the fund from which the

ple of Oregon, as a fund for the main

from the school fund, but the appio-
priation was profligate and corruptly
bestowed upon partisan favorites. He

ture Democrats that a responsible
company offered to do the work for a
sum less by $75,000 than that bestowed
upon the John F. Miller, Jas. K. Kelly
and Jo Teal company, land that there
was an actual robbery of the treasury
or that amount for party favorites,
The Legislature issued bonds for 200.-
000 and guWe them to the company
before the work was begun, paying
interest thereon for two years before
the time prest-ribed for the works to be
completed, and making an appropria
tion or f&u,ouu to pay interest, though
not a stroke of work had yet been done.
This giving a subsidy in advance and
payn.ent of interest In advance was an
unprecedented act in the history of
subsidies by btates to public improve
ments. In connection with this mat
ter, he fully exposed and called fresh
attention to tiie general schemes ot
Blunder. 'consummated or attemntcd
hy the last Legislature, in the way of
appropriations mm the same lund to
jobbing road companies iu various
parts of the State. . Incidentally, he
reviewed the infamous conduct of the
List Legislature hi turning out legally
elected members, and foisting in men
who had been rejected by tiie people,
. in order to carry out the schemes oi
plunder concocted by tiie grand cen
tral Ueinocratiu ring.

It exposed to public gaze. He sliowed
how the ring had spied out iu advance
the lands they wanted to gobble, liad
then lobbied and lugged tiie bill
through the Legislature, and how, be-
lore tne inn was dry rrom tne pen
which had approved the act, they had
tiled their claims. He said there was
no proof required of claimants under
the act, that the lands claimed were
swamp lands ; that the act did not pro
vide any means of determining whether
lands claimed under it were swamp
lands ; it was left to irresponsible dep
uties of the Land Commissioner to go
about the State and select anv lands
they might see tit and to return them
. as swamp lands : whereupon it be
came the duty of the Laud Commis
sioner to sell them to the first appli
cant. ' t ne deputies might select any
lands thevchosc as swamp land thougl
the same might be already vested in
settlers by patent from the United
States, thus casting clouds upon titles
, and giving rise to vexatious and costly
- litigation, me annncants for land
nnder the act were required to nav
only twenty per cent of the price one
dollar per sere down, the balance to
be paid on proof of reclamation of the
land, within ten years from the date of

United States pre-emption and home
stead laws, sulisennent to that time
might be made void, and the patents
Issued therefor be annulled, in order
to give such lands and homes of set
tlers into the hands of swamp land
simulators.. He read a letter of Gro
ver's to tiie U. S. Commissioner trans
mitting a special list of the lands or
Lake Labish (claimed by John F.
Miller, under the swamp land act) and
Wapato Lake (claimed under the same
' law by another member of the ring)
and asking the Commissioner to im
mediately approve and confirm to tiie
State the selection. This letter taken
in connection with the tact tliat the
ring speculators were at that time
claimants ofthe lauds under the swamp
land act, and. the further fact that
nearly all. if not every acre, of the
lauds in question were already claimed
by actual settlers under the homestead
or pre-emption or tiie prior donation
laws of the United States, proved to the
satisfaction oi every person present
thot Gov. Grover was corruptly in
league with the land-grahhers to rob
settlers of their lands. . The Judge's
review of this mammoth and infauions
swindle was terribly scathing and
thoroughly convincing. Il charged
the responsibility ofthe act home upon
the Democratic Legislature, and
pledged the Republican party, in cae
it obtained control of the Legislature,
to a repeal of the law and tiie enact
ment of one with proper guards for the
protection of the rights of tiie settlers
and to check the schemes of specula
tors. The JudgQ then addressed him
self to .

A DEMAUOUI E IMPALED.
tJ rover's own witness against trover .
' Grover has been saying all over the
State that the canal and locks at Ore
gon City are being built, "as required
by law, entirely of stone, cement and
Iron." To show how, even a deputy
Governor can practice deceit, we will
confront him with tiie statement of the
chief engineer of the works, Isaac W.
Smith, as published in the Herald of
yesterday, Saturday, May 25th. Mr.
Smith says: '
There are 1.200 feet of canal between
tftft fourth and fifth locks that has been
built, resting on the solid rock, a strong
and1 durable wall of masonry, level
with the bed of the canal, and costing
more than the amount given in the Re
publican papers as the total cost of this
portion of the work.

THE FARMER ON 1'I BUC SPIRIT.
The following, from the Farmer,
though severely said, contains many
grains of truth :
The only thing we really have to
tear is the blindness or meanness ot
some of our citizens. Men who own
large property in our city, and seem to
think that all they have to do is to keep
it and grumble about the taxes they
pay on it, are our worst enemies. Men
who will not lift a hand nor pay a cent
to secure the building of a bridge across
the W illamette nor the removal of the
depot into the city, are doing more to
injure us than Ben Hollaclay, with all
his monopolizing te.ndencies.ever could
do if these meii were cured ot their
We need more local pride and public
spirit. We need to have more influ
ences brought to bear to promote pub
lic spirit. When has there ever been
a public meeting to consider so import
ant a local question as the changing of
.1. . i , l j . :
me intcK ii mi removal oi uie uepoi, in
to Uie city? Which one ot our daily
papers has turned away from its dis
graceful political slang or one sided
partisan tight long enough to present
fully and clearly to its readers any of
these great local questions
To the last question we answer, the
Statesman has frequently mentioned
local enterprises, giving suggestions,
urging action and presenting reasons
why Salem should immediately under
take to help herself, by a proper dis
play of public spirit. We believe we
can safely say that in this direction we
have spoken oftencr and said more, by
half, than has the Fanner which now
assumes to lecture as.
From all parts of the county
we hear tliat the piebald-oayusc-Dem-obrartc
ticket will get but little, and in
most places no support from Republi
cans. Men who have stood proudly
these many years, in the Republican
ranks, giving tlieir earnest sympathy
and support to the government while
it struggled for its life against traitors,
while John F. Miller, L. F. Grover
and their associates gave their sympa
thies to rebels and their influence to
thwart tiie efforts of the Union armies,
are not going now to blot and foul
their record by going over and casting
themselves into the arms of John F.
Miller and L. F. Grover. They will
take no part in the election of Demo
cratic represenfcitives to the Legisla
ture. They will not consent to assist
in throwing the political power of the
State inevitably inlo the hands of tho
Democracy, when there is so much
hope or redeeming tiie State from the
corrupt and thieving rule of such men
as composed the last Legislature.
The Mercury neglected, and
now declines to denounce the de
falcation and flight of Tom How
ard, Democratic Sheriff ot Grant
County and Democratic candidate for
re-election, because it happened "hun
dreds ol miles away." Grant county,
however, hapjiens to be a county of
Oregon, aud Tom Howard happens to
be an Oregon officer and an Oregon
Democratic candidate. Oregon peo
ple are therefore more or less inter
ested in tiie affair. If Democratic
newspapers decline to denounce him,
it is probably because they are not dis
posed to censnre their party brethren
for such 'xwiduct as those.' In the
Mercury's case, denunciation of Demo
cratic villainy would be dangerous to
some greater thieves than Tom How
ard ; and that is likely why the Mer
cury treads so gingerly over the mat
ter. - . Ub
Grover said again last evening at the
Opera House that the Willamette Falls
Canal and Lock Co. is building the
works entirely of stone, cement aud
Iron. We refer the reader to the state
ment of Isaac W. Smith, the Chief
Engineer and Supt ofthe Works, as
published in the Herald, who says tliat
the outer wall of the canal is to le
built of vtod. How this world in
giveu to lying !
We hear that Lawsoti, hi the ab
sence of John F. Miller, at Gervats,
yesterday, let himself loose, and de
clared that Ben Holladay and the rail
road mouopoly imtaf be put down. To
tliat end, if necessary, the track of the
railroad must be torn up and the ties
burned ; aud after that, if all other
means failed, then bullets. If Jonuef
had been there, he would not have al
lowed his fool to rave in that manner.
The eeason wnr the Mercury
crowd concentrate their fiercest bitter
ness of hate upou Messrs. Fatten and
Mallory I that those two gentlemen
are so thoroughly acquainted with the
means ofraisiug the Democratic cuti
cle and combing tiie Democratic hair

We understand that certain parties

Laud Act, upou the sand-beach of Min
to's Hand, just opposite South Salem.
Mr. Miuto owns this proK-rty by deed

therefore .subject to claim under the
Swamp Laud Act, and tliat the State
should finally issue a patent to the
claimant, what would be the result?
Mr. Miuto says the land is his. Any
lawyer would say so. Tiie Swamp
Land claimant says it is his ; aud the
State oflicers say so. There is, then, a
conflict in title which must be settled
by litigation or black-mail. Cannot
anybody see that the mere filing of a
claim upon a part ofthe island is sulll-
cient to put such a cloud upon the title
as woiqd prevent Mr. Miuto from sell
ing ' the laud at its real value ? Xo
man of sagacity would care to buy it
with Uie prospect of a law suit. We
mention this case merely because it il
lustrates the operation of the Swamp
Land Act. The State officers vtay de
cide tiiat the land is not subject to
claim under that law ; and they may
decide tliat it is. If they are honest
they will decide the ease upon the
principles of law and right ; if tliey are
corrupt and in league with the Swamp
Laud claimant, tliey will decide in his
favor and rob Mr. Miuto of his proper
ty. We do not pretend to know what
they will do ; but does not every one
see how tiie door is open V collusion,
corruption and wrong, and how tiie
settlers of Oregon are at the mercy of
the land grabbers ?
. Grover and Chadwick who have, in
part, this matter to decide as State offi
cers, approve and defend the Swamp
Imd law. Miller, who is engineering
tla! Independent ticket in this- county,
approves and defends it. The Democ
racy everywhere approve and defend
it. Milleraud some of the StaUorn
eers, as we are informed, are claim
ants of lands under the Swamp Land
Act. They are deeply interested in
electing a majority of members of the
Legislature who will not repeal or ul-
ter the law. If tliey get control of tiie
Legislature, the law will' not be re

party ofthe State is pledged lo the re

didates of Marion county are elected,
they will vote tor its repeal. Let the

know but there may have been in all.
It Is remarkable, however, that no
fraud has ever been alleged by any
body except In one respect. It Is also
remarkable that some of these men arc
now trying to defeat candidates whom
they tn person as delegates hi the Re
publican Convention, assisted to nom
inate. We are Informed that John P.
Colo voted for some, if not all, the
successful candidates for Rejjresenta
tives. Another man whom we might
mention as very active now in favor
ofthe Independent ticket, voted in the
convention for all the present RepilWi.
can candidates for the Legislature.
What shall we say of the treachery of
these men foWafd. those whom tliey
thcinVelves placed before toe people?
If we' were disposed to deal In tlieir
own style of argument (?) We might
ask, '-who borfght thnn off?" This
'buying''' and "Setting'' argument, is
however an inimnnly and Indecent
one, and we will not charge if. We
must however say tha' the men to
whom this paragraph refers, have al
lowed themselves to be so blinded by
passioii as to forget the honor and
good faith that should exist between
CITIZENSHIP IN OKEOON.
We have heretofore published the
bill introduced iu Congress by Senator
Corbett, to declare the status of per
sons born In the district of country
formerly known as Oregon Territory.
In respect to citizenship. The sub
stance of the bill was finally attached
as a Proviso to the Deficiency Bill
which passed In Congress on the loth
of May. The following Is the text of
the Proviso :
"That all persons born In the district
ot country formerly know-n as the Ter
ritory of Oregdn.tiiid subject to the juris
diction ofthe United States at this time,
are citizens ot the United States In the
same manner as if born elsewhere in
the United States."
The Deficiency Bill was approved
by the President May 20. and it is
now a law of tiie United States. This
declares to be citizens all that class of
persons who were declared not citizens
by Judge Deady's decision of last
year. The question is now definitely
settled. The law includes in its scope
all those persons born within the
limits ofthe Territory of Oregon be
fore the treaty of June loth liG,
whose fathers were British subjects
and whose mothers were members of
various Indian tribes, then in the
Oregon Territory. All half-breeds are
therefore, upon the same footing as all
other American born people, raised to
citizenship and the right to vote upon
the same terms as other citizens. For
this they are indebted, as were the ne
gro race, to a Republican Congress.
ABOI T "DIVWINU TIMF--
The Mercury and other Democratic
papers are having much to say about
Attorney-General Williams' refusal to
divide time, at his appointments, with
Tom, Dick and Harry, or whoever
might choose to challenge him for a
joint discussion. These snarling criti
cisms do not amount to much, lor no
body lK-licves that Judge Williams has
any occasion to tear to meet in debate
anybody in Oregon or elsewhere. He
has declined to divide time or to dis
cuss with one or two blackguards that
were set upon him by Grover and
others, but lie is willing to divide
time with any gentleman. When he
was at Kugene City, Ben Hayden ap
proached him in a gentlemanly way
and proposed to discuss politics in a
decent, proper manner, and Judge
Williams at once consented to and did
divide time with him. Ben talked
like a gentleman and not like a black
guard. But, by what right do these Mer-eury-G
rover fellows demand of Judge
Williams a division of time with any
liody ? His appointments are his own,
and he certainly has the right to talk
at his own appointments as long as he
may see fit. He has never objected to
any man's talking after he got through.
Grover goes around the State making
speeches at his own appointments;
nobod3 questions his right to do so,
and nobody goes for him or sends
blackguards to ask him to divide time.
Helm docs the same thing and so do
other Democratic politicians. The
clamor about. Judge Williams' refusal
to "divide time " has neitlicr wit nor

ley's political associations and intima
cies are so bad tliat we can expect
nothing from him. iu case, to his own
misfortune and our.--, he should lie
elected, but a corrupt administration
of aflaiis."' Tiie Post sums up its op
position to Greeley in the following
terse language : "With such a head as
is on his shoulders the affairs of the
nation could not, under his direction,
be wisely administered ; with such
manners as his, they could not be ad
ministered with common decorum ;
with such associates as he has taken to
his Immhii, they could not be admin
istered with common Integrity."

The Mercury is evidently distrustful
of the candidates on the Independent
ticket. Nobody has tried to buy them
off and nobody wants to; yet the Mer
cury thinks it necessary to aver round
ly, almost every morning, tliat its no
use to offer to buy 'em ; they can't be
bought. , It lias come to sound very
much like an auctioneer's challenge :

Ed. Statesman: The Mercury ha 3
been crowing for several issues over
the refusal of Judge Williams to divide
time with Nesmitli. and thus make a
joint political canvasser the State- The
Litigant Organ evidently thinks tliere
is a point in it somewhere, but not-
wunstauuing us peculiarass tuteness.
the true point is yet undiscovered. An
order to contribute something towanl
the enlightenment ot our suspicions
neighbor, we will commend to him the
following maxim whicli tiie Judge, as
well as other wise men, learned in
youth : "AVer fljht irith a sotremjer.
utiles you trantel to get iltel vith
'." It is safe to assert that Jiuljre
Williams would not refuse to debate
political subjects with any earnest rep-
reseuiative of a political party, even if
ne liau no lietter plattorm tliajp "any
thing to beat Grant." but to enter into
a political discussion, from the san ic
platform with a man like J. W. Ni
inith wliose style of argument (!) is such
that a' tirade ot blackguardism from

ered a 'characteristic speech" a r

sjieech at Albany that he was : vedwe d

that the Judge recoiled from such per

that the Judge is afraid of Nesmitli
the fact, however, is highly compli

WOOL IN SN I8AXIMO.
ThePacitie Rural Press, May lSlh,
seaks as follows of the wool prospect
in the San Francisco market : "There
seems hardly a HVsibility that wool
will maintain even its present value.
There are now iu store, in San Fran-ci-co,
over 1S.0O0 bales, including all
grades, and even- day is adding its
(junta of receiits from all parts of the
State. If we compare the present
amount ou hand, with the wool dip of
last year, it Is evident that a very large
quantity is still In the hands of the
growers for some of which prices
ranging from 40 to 52 cents have al
ready been paid. The receipt of this,
in addition to that now on hand, les
sened only by a few light sales, will
have a tendency rather to lower the
price in this market than lower It to a
Much of that now coming in is not
sold or contracted for, and for tiie
most part is iu small lots, from the
growers on a small scale, many of
whom feel coniielled to realize, even
at low rates ; this will have a further
tendency to lower prices ; and we now
hear of sales of small lots at jirices
ranging from 31 to 40 cents. On .the
whole. 'we do not see w hat there is to
warrant a belief that wool is to ad
vance in jrice greatly beyond the Jres
ent market value."

General Butler is reported to liave
i"nl that the nomination of Greeley
was the weakwt that could possibly
