The Wtsco Democrats are beavy on
how dodges. They have, for several
yean Invented one expedient or anotb-
er hv which they have sot away with
the elections. This year It Is a slde
election, run excJuslvely by private
. parties, and with i surprising
nnanlmlty lor tho betnocfatk ticket.

expedient, Wasco, Republican, is made
Democratic, and the will of the people
legitimately expressed, has again been
over-ridden by the Democratic, trick
sters of Wasco.
as Eszarr to the state.
A more disreputable organ than the
Portland Herald has become since the
election, was never seen anywhere.
In Its spite toward Ben Holladay, it
is attacking the credit of the most im
portant enterprises of the State; try
ing to break down Oregon Railroad
securities and to discourage invest
ments of capital In our midst. It does
this to bust" Ben Holladay, for assist
ing to defeat the Democracy. But it
Is not doing him any harm, nor can it
do him any. It may succeed, how
ever, In doing injury to the State ; for
the State Is vitally interested in main
taining the credit of the enterprises on
which its progress depends. The
Herald might as well advise the ship
pers of Europe that they need not
come here for grain, because there Is
none ; or emigrants to star away be
cause there is nothing here for them ;
it might as well advise the outside
world that the country is worthless
and that it has no possible capacity
for development, as to continue in the
strain of depreciation and misrepre
sentation, In which It has been indulg
ing for the last few days. Its effort
tends directly toward preventing any
development of the country. The
Herald is simply an unprincipled sheet
which puts party before all other con
siderations. COMFORT FOR TBEHBLIXe MOl'U.
Doubtless many good people have
been led by Democratic declamation
to fear that sundry schemes injurious
to the State and in tho interest of Ben
Holladay will be proposed and proba
bly passed at the coming session of the
Legislative. It has been asserted over
and over again that a Republican ma
jority in that body would meet simply
. to record Holiday's will. This was
electioneering clap-trap, furnished by
litigant editors and their liege lord,
Gov. Grover. It auy have been mis
led by it they have only to wait in pa
tience to have their minds disabused.
In the first place no legislation can be
enacted which would be of any service
whatever to Mr. Holladay or his rail
roads. Not a single measure can be
proposed or devised which would ben
efit him or them in the slightest de
gree. And we here put on record and
ask readers to mark the sequel, that
no measure In the Interest of Holladay
or his railroads, will pass the legisla
ture. Mr. Holladay has nothing to
ask ot that body. And in the second
place the Republican majority in the
Legislature' is composed of men who
represent the Interests of the btate.
I 'Better Imeterlal'was, never sent to a
Legislature. These men will act with
a view to promoting the progress and
prosperity ot the State, and from con
vlctloDSof duty to their constituents
and themselves. They cannot be
" run " In any special Interest. But
while they propose no legislation for
' the benefit of Mr. Holladay, (who asks
nothing of tho kind) we hazard nothing
in saying that they will not allow the
great interests and enterprises which
- he represents to he harassed and fet-
' tered by narrow and unfriendly legis
lation. They will take no stock in the
Democratic onslaught upon the most
important industrial and commercial
enterprises of the State. Liberal pol
ler, regulated bv justice aud b v a re-
rgardforthe States highest Interests,
is the motto of the Republican party ;
and a Republican Legislature will pur
sue that policy as the one demanded
by an enlightened public judgment.
That judgment can have no sympathy
with the narrow, prescriptive, parti
san, spiteful and: rancorous course of
the Democracy, as reflected by their
chief 01 gan, the Portland Herald. The
course ot that paper and of those who
encourage it, resembles a schoolboy's
spite and malignity.
HOW IT HIKTH.
The philanthropist will be really
pained to observe with what grief our
Democratic brethren take their defeat

saying: .. -- - - -

While the Herald arraigns the Na
tional Republican platform for Its
plank declaring against further grants
of lands tomonpoltes, tCv, the Plain
dealer Is tasistbTg thirt the resolution
Is a cheat and I tldt Congress will con
tinue t give away'the public domain.
It seems quIte ltKpossIble to reconcile
these fellows. If we go for land
grants, they wall the gobbllng-up of
the publlc'domaln. If we go ior Keep
ing the lands for settlers, they rail
thatve have gone back on Internal
."The Republican party is entitled to
all the credit for the grants of lands
that have been given, to the great
trans-continental and western roads,
and it can well afford to leave tbe de
cision as to tbe wisdom of those acts,
to time. For our own part we think
Congress never did a better thing than
giving away the lands without which. j
the Union and Central Pacific rallroud
would never have been batik, and the
Northern Pacific woJd never have
been begun. Those grants rerolted in
bringing into market millton'j of acres
of land that otherwise wou'.d have re
mained as valueless for a century as
they were ten years ago. Those roads
and others bnllt or to be built tinder
the munificence of Congress, will create
an empire west, 0f the Mississippi,
where, without them, a desert wxrald
have remalnr-d forever. They are
making sale, for lands of the United
States, tbat never, otherwise, could
have befo sold 5 and they are making
way Cor tens of thousands ot homes
where, otherwise, the Indian and the
cayote would have lived undisturbed
lorever. Beside that, they are peo
pling and developing the Pacific
States and Territories as nothing ele
could have done. They have annihi
lated two-thirds of the distance be
tween the Atlantic and Pacific sea
boards, bringing the widely serrated
parts of tlte country into social and
commercial relations closer Dy so
many degrees that figures can scarcely
compute the Importance of the change.
What the land grants have done for
the regions passed through and con
nected by these roads, may yet be done
by grants for other roads through the
great interior. There are other great
sections of the interior country that
may be profitably opened up and
started upon a career of development,
by railroads. The united states may
yet reclaim, by a liberal railroad-aid
policy, other millions of acres of land
now lying as useless as the deserts of
Arizona. At no very distant time, the
universal judgment of the American
people will be that all such grants oi
laud were wisely given away.
THE WASCO RETlBJfS.
The Wasco county returns, as we
publish them this morning, are as they
were "fixed" by tbe County Clerk.
They give Burnett 38 majority ; and
Monroe, for State Senator, 33 majority,
As we said tbe other day, the legally
polled vote of one precinct was thrown
out aud a bogus poll in the same pre
cinct was counted Instead. The legal
vote of the county gave Wilson 2 ma
jority, and Moody, for State Senator,
14 majority. The returns, however,
were "doctored" so as to give the Dem
ocratic candidate for State Senator the
certificate of election. We understand
Mr. Moody will contest, and that he
will be able to show a shameless and
undeniable fraud and to prove beyond
question his own election. The Re
publicans of Wasco have been "trick
ed" out of one or two elections before.
That sort of thing has been carried 011
quite long enough ; and we shall hope
to see the matter set right at the prop
er time, and in the proper way.
A short time ago, tbe Herald was
furiously charging that Ben Holladay
was gobbling np one of the finest coun
tries in the world : and now it is seri
ously declaring and trying to prove
that there is not enough of the country
to be gobbled by anybody, and that
Ben Holladay must inevitably fail in
trying to operate a railroad in Oregon.
Wont the Herald please Inform us to
which text it will stick?
An order has been Issued establish
ing a post office in Wasco county to
be called Mt. Hood, and Mr. Holllns-
worth has been appointed postmaster,
Charles H. Hicks has been appointed
postmaster at EHensburg ; and Henry

Tlie Herald showed signs yesterday
morning of having begun to realize-
in a business way, perhaps that its
recent malignity toward Ben Holladay
reaching to basely false aspersions of
Oregon, its people and industries, will
not pay. It is beginlng to plead that
it has tbe good of the State at heart as
much as any body and like tbe whip

The Mercury is savage on tlie late

S. Stephen's new Society Novel, is In
press, and will be published in a few
days by T. B. Peterson & Brothers,
Philadelphia, Pa. It is said to l the
best book that this popular authoress
has ever written. "The Reigning
Belfe" will be' issued in a large duo-
uecimo, voiuinne, umiona witn jars.

will be for sale at all the Bookstores
at the low price of $1,75 in cloth, $1,50

ot tlie distinguished American artist,
Mr. Edward L. Henry, of New Yerk,
to illustrate this fine poem for them ;
and they have iu press, to be shortly

black man "is to vote for f lie party

to explain the instinct which moves

Judge Caton, of Illinois, a proml-j
nent Iietnocrat. has written a letter to
the Chicago Times, in which lie thus
testifies to the general denioraliaation
of his imrty and the causes of it :
"You tliink I assume too much when
I say our choice is necessarily to be
made between Mr. Greeley and Mr.
Graut. Would tliat I could see that we
could have a wider range of clioice. II
our party were drilled to the discipline
it once was; If we could count upon ev
ery Democtattc vote in the country; if
we could kindle in tlioin tliat enthusi
asm which can alone be aroosed by
confident hoie, then we might have
some chance of electing a majority of
the electoral votes inasmuch as a plu
rality vote in most ot the States can
elect electors. But in my judgment,
our party is so demoralized we cannot
depend ttiion ti the voters who liave
acted with us."
And he proceeds to say ftrrtlier:
"The truth p, we are hopelessly de
moralized, and the course of events for
the last two mouths lias done more to
produce this state of things tlian all
our disastrous defeats iu tlie last twelve
years. Hence it is that I think it would
be imiossible to unite our party, with
all its strength, on any candidate our

how accecptable he might be to us all."

Wendell Phillips was interviewed
recently and said :
Whom I shall vote lor, or whether
I shall vote at all, I do uot know ; but
certainly as against Greeley I am for
Grant. We liave had one Andy John
son, I will not run the risk of getting
another in, and Horace Greeley is
such. I want a man with some de
cided principles. Greeley never liad
any ; besides, I consider Greeley a
secession candidate. I believe the plot
to nominate him was hatched by
Southern white rebels more than a
year ago, and has been mainly nursed
by them. I advise any one who means
to vote for him to find out wliat agree
ments have been made by Greeley's
tnends with .left Davis and his stan.
As to ollice and patronage, I am per
fectly certain that there tea distinct
mutual understanding it not a positive
contract between them, if Horace
Greeley enters the White House, that
.left' Davis will be as truly a part of
the administration as Seward was iu
Lincoln's day. Xo negro can vote for
Greeley who values his life or property

The result of Greeley's sojourn at
Ciiappaqua is that the tribune has an
article on the adulteration of milk.

service to Mr. Greeley, "no matter

This is how Greeley's name was
first mentioned for the Presidency :
On taking his scat in the Thirtieth
Congress Mr. Greeley vigorously at
tacked the old-mileage abuse, and was
bitterly opposed by many of his fellow-members,
and at length it was
gravely proposed to expel him. "The

SEVERE KITH ISn.
The New York Evangelist thu
ludes to Horace Greely :
With all his talents, his long ex
perience of the world, he has very lit
tle insight into human nature ; and in
dealing with those who are crafty and
plausible, is as innocent and credulous
as a child. How many leeches have
fastened tqioii him, draining his purse,
and almost sucking his blood. Such
creatures nse his name and his author
ity for thir own seltish ends.
This would be our fear iu regard to
Mr. Greely, tliat no sooner would he
be established in power than there
would spring up under his nose a
Kitchen Cabinet, that would manipu
late things for their own purposes,
without a suspicion ever entering his
honest soul. And so it might come to
pass that, while this sudden uprising
ot the eopie might clear out the
"military ring," as it is called, and
thus exorcise one demon of corruption,
yet no sooner would this be driven out
and tlie hot.se swept and gam is! ted
than tliere would enter in seven other
devils worse tlian the first. This
might he, even while no man doubted
tlie personal Integrity of tbe President.

TAEVE OF TTIOKOrtai-BRED ANI
A thorough-bred animals Is one that
will transmit its peculiar characteris
tics with almost ineniug certainty to
its progeny. Crosses and grade ani
mals will not do this with satisfactory
certainty. Prof. Agassiz stated a fact
which breeders of domestic animals
should never forget or undervalue,
when he said no offspring is simply
the offspring of Its father and mother.
It U, at the same time, the offspring of
grandfather aud grandmother ou both
sides. Without touching ground at
all debatable, he might liave asserted
tliat this independence ot offspring or
liability to reproduce family charac
teristics extends much farther up the
ancestral Hue. Hence the importance
of thorough-breeding. According to
acceptation, a cow Is never a thoroiigli
bred nor a full-blood ; but in the In
stances where sire and dame are
Ayrshires, or Durham, or Devon
that Is, have been bred pure from
many generations they are called
thorougli-bred, or full-blood, the terms
being synonomous in bi-eeder's rar
lance. " A thorough-bred Is made
by carefully breeding to estab
lish a distinctive and permanent
tyie, or interbreeding to retain it;
but ot two thorougli-bretls of distinc
tive types or breeds are interbred, the
Crogeny Is no longer regarded fnll

WISE. Mr. Greeley thinks he should be
President. Fortunately the country
knows better than he. Let us ee : A
President who would have said at the
commencement of the rebellion, let
the South go in peace. A President
who would haye ordered the generals
"Ou to Richmond" only for defeat.
A President who would have ruslied
np to Niagara to go through the stupid
farce of negotiating a treaty of peace
between the North and South, with a
scalawag from Colorado as the prinei
Kil on the Southern side. A President
who would have gone to Richmond to
fo upon Jeff. Davis' bail bond. A
'resident who would have bankrupted
the country by trying to force sjieeie
payineut. For tlie people, especially
business men, liave uot forgotten liow,
at the close of the war, with gold away
up iu the forties, Greeley used all the
force of the Tribune to resume at once,
crying daily, "The way to reach re
sumption Is to resume." If Greeley
had been where he could have carried
out his policy then, he would have cost
this country as much by financial dis
aster as the war debt amounted to.
