ment, outside of the political rings, Is
that if be don't gel promptly 'boost
ed'" out, thea We will have escaped,
again in act ot retributive justice,
The Democnt may, we think, safely
caper for a thousand crowns that Mr.
Stratum will be '-boosted." As for
"Senators Myers and Monroe, we luive
only to say that, if their seats shall be
STontested, the Senate will undertake to
decide such contests fairly and squarely
upon the merits. So far as tlie Repub
lican members are concerned, weVlo'
not believe Uiat tbev will be insAnely
reckless enough to repeat Or imitate he
jieculiar methods of determining 'con
tests which were adopted by tlie Oem
ocracy In 1870. Then k was only
question, 4Do we want the contestant
in ?" The evidence in rgntxi to the
fairness and legality in tin election,
cut no figure In the 'case, at all. Con
tests were dueldevl, by tlie right of
might, and men who were undeniably
lcfeuted by de people were elected to
seaU in the Legislature, by the Demo
cratic majerlty of the Legislature. Tlie
people saw plainly enough how their
sacred rights were being trifled with,
outraged and scoffed, and they rose in
theirrighTeousangeraud "boosted" that
iJemocrattc majority out. After this
lesson, will any legislator care to imi
tate llie Democratic example ?
If Senator Myers shall be found to
elected by a majority of the lawful
votes of Clackamas county, we say he
must retain his seat, though a hundred
partisan plans slxuild fail in conse
quence. It his election slm.lt be found
to rest, upon fraudulent votes, then it
will be in order for every honest man
ot the Senate to rise up and "boost"
him. And so of Senator Monroe. The
Republican party cannot aftbrd to dis
turb any man in his scat if he hold it
rightfully, nor can it any betterafford
to tolerate any man In a seat which be
got through corruption and fraud.
"ABOtT SCARCITY OF MOXEY AM)
Now comes the Herald, and for
proof that its editor is an ass, says that
IVii Holluday is nsionsiblc for the
scarcity of money in Oregon. This
will appear an odd proposition to
those who .have any idea of the amount
of money Hnllmlay has expended in
Oregon, within the last two or three
years, in the construction of his rail
roads. Does not everybody knowthnt
with the exception of tlie returns for
last year's wheat crops, nearly all the
money we have had in circulation in
the State was placed in circulation by
Ben Holladay. The amount of coin
disbursed by the railroad companies
to pay for material, and the thousands
ot people employed from Portland to
Umpquu has been larger by many
times tliau the entire receipts of all tlie
people of the State from abroad, for
their products Those companies have
been, in fact, the principal sources of
money supply. Let any man sit down
and soberly calculate just what would
lave been the financial condition of tlie
State to-day, if the railroads had not
been commenced, and tlie inevitable
conclusion mut be tliut, with, our re
sources for money, we must have been
in a state of general bankruptcy and
distress, business flat, crops and farms
without sale, and enterprises generally
in a state of neglect and decay. This
was, in some sort, the condition of af
fairs before the raiiroaus were com
menced. Can anybody tell how or
whence the remedy could have come,
save as it did in the shape ot railroad
builders? Everybody, at that time,
prayed devoutly for the incoming of
capital and tlie Inauguration of a rail
road line through the valley. The
people who thus prayed were not fools,
nor did tliey invoke tlie aid of capital
blindly. Tliey knew what it would do
in awaking the dormant energies and
developing the latent resources of the
State. Much of what they anticipated
has been realized. Tlie State is now
very far advanced In every material re
gard, from iu status of the ante-rail
road period. It is larger, stronger, and
hi every way mote independent. There
Is less private indebtedness, and debts
are easier cancelled.
Gov.' Miller's Grover, through the
Mercury, replies to the charge that tlie
Penitentiary appropriation lias been
largely overdrawn, by saying, in sub
"stance, that the building is "a credit to
tfie present State "Administration ;"
that it is a permanent building, and
tliat the expenditures liave exceeded
the appropriation, because tlie Com
missioners thought it advisable
, Voucher not warrants, you see
have been Issued to the. amount of
$30,501 60, In excess of the appropria
tion. Therefore, tlie peskey Radicals
who have been charging that the ap
propriation has been largely overdrawn,
are very naughty men ; to adopt Gro-
vcr's owu style, tliey have written ly
. i. t. line "
and "leaders of lies."
The appropriation was fifty thousand
dollars; the extra vouchers amounted
to nearly forty thousand dollars. We
, are still under the impression, not-
witstanding the Penitentiary is
standing honor to its builders" that
when tlie appropriation Is exceeded by
. tlie expenditures, by a sum nearly as
large as the appropriation itself, tlie
appropriation is rather largely over-
. drawn, even though tlie Commission
ers do think it advisable to involve the
State in debt, beyond the authority of
law. Tlie Governor hides behind a
technicality. He says: "Xo warrants
are issued beyond any ot the appropri
atious." Well, tlien, vouchers are Is
sued ; they are evidences of indebted
ncss or the State, and tlie State will be
called niion t pay them. Xo more
could be done with a warrant, after
after the appropriation is exhausted
The drawee would simply hold it, a
, be would lmld tlie vouclier, ern-pt that
on the latter he would draw i; inter
est, 'llie pith of tlie charge against
the State ollicers is that tlwy Imv
created an Indebtedness, on account of
the Penitentiary, largely in excess of!
the appropriation. That cliarge stands
confessed in Grover's editorial iu the
A "JIOOPOLY" WEUXHED.
People who have a railroad only in
prospect, are generally disposed to
think more tolerantly of "crushing
monopolies'" than those who, having
secured a railroad running past their
doors spend llrcit time in cursing the
buihter. Thus, a Rosebnrg paper
"We fcaru that the railroad tract Is
complete to Oakland and tlie cars are
now running to that point. Tlie track
layers are aiming on as rapidly as
possibly, and will reach llio Xdrth
Umpnua river in a slwtt time, then
their nrosrress will be checked 'luioild
tlie bridge can be constructed. It "Mil
not be a great while until tho 'locomo
tive readies Itosetmrg. Some1!! tr.o
people are well pleased to see'ttns Won
derful monopoly coming along."
So it is everywhere. Tlie people of
Yamhill, Polk anfi Bcrftvm counties
want to see the "rhbriftpoly''' coming
their way i Hie iiwxpas. and Rogue
rivers sta ml ready 'and anxious to be
gobbled" arid "shed" just as tlie
peojdeof Marten, Liun and Lane are
gobbled rid crashed. The counties of
Eastern Oregon offer themselves as
willing 'martyrs to any gobbling and
crti&iing monopoly that will please
come along and slap down a railroad
throogh their country. They are so
green (according to the views ot the
Herald and certain other Democratic
authorities of the genus Demagogue)
tliat they think a "crushed" farmer
whose lands have been "gobbled," till
they are now worth only about fAree
dollars to tlie one dollar at which tliey
could liave been sold before the mo
nopoly came along, is immensely bet
ter off than tliey who have not yet
been crushed and gobbled. In short
they are waiting with some impatience
to know when tlie crushing and gob
bling is to begin.
After all, even those who liave been
crushed and gobbled, are not quite
willing to have the bitter-sweet pro
cess under which they pretend to suf
fer, suspended. We have never found
any of them quite willing to see rail
road construction stop, or tlie finished
parts taken up and removed. They
prefer to still be crushed and gobbled.
rather than that. Even the Herald
which in its bitter spite at Holladay,
has done what it could to destroy his
credit and render It Impossible to pro
ceed with his roads ; which has raved
that Holladay ought to lie driven out
of the State ; even the Herald says it
U fortunate that the railroads are built
and tliat Holladay wlien he shall flee
before an outraged people, cannot take
the railroads away from us. He mui
leave them for our use and profit
That's tlie style of man the Herald's
editor is. He would denounce the
railroad builder, rob him of his prop
erty, drive him from the State, and
then felicitate himself that the flyin,
exile must, per force, leave his prop
erty f'r the benefit of the brigand:
wlio should make the country "too hot'
for him !
CAI.CIXATIONM THAT ARE Ql'EER,
The dispatclies from California in
forms us tliat tlie Democrats are figur
ing on what they call "compromises"
that shall secure the State electoral
vote against Grant. Having nomi
nated Kewen. a violent secession Dem
ocrat, for Congress in the Southern
District, they are now trying to "com
promise" with somebody, on the prop
osition to let tlie Liberals have the
candidate In the Central or the Xorth
ern District, in order to promote har
mony and fusion, and thus secure the
State against Grant. All this sounds
queer when we recollect that the State
had not Liberal Republicans enough
to hold a convention, or even a caucus,
for the pui-pose of sending delegates to
Cincinnati. Rackcrby who made him
self immortal in the same manner in
which J. W. Jasper J. achieved im
mortality was tlie sole, self-elected del
egate of California iu tliat convention.
Even as J. W. Jasper J. voted for
Jasper, Delegate, and "proxies," so
Rackcrby voted for Rackcrby, Dele
gate, and "proxies." Tlie business of
"compromising" with the Liberal ele
ment in California, seems to be merely
a compromise with Raekerby ; and if
the Liberal element is to have a candi
date for Congress, it appears that, of
necessity, Raekerby must lie the man.
Even so, in Oregon, if there arc to he
any division of spoils honors or sacri
fices, between Democrats and the Lib
eral clement, it will, of necessity be J.
W. .Iaeper J. wiio must pocket the
Liberals spoils wear the Liberal feath-er-iu-his-cap
and submit to be the
Liberal lamb Talking of "compro
mises," under tlie circumstances in
either Stale, is really very absurd, and
laughable, too, if one could laugh at
such driveling nonsense.
A bedrocker who corresponds with
the Oregon City Enterprise warns his
fellow-Democrats against tlie folly of
Dolly-Vardenhig with tlie Liberals.
He says :
" Look back over the history of such
unions of antagonistic forces and see
the long catalogue of disgraceful and
nisastrous defeats which have crowned
the efforts of t he no-party policy hi the
liast. Look forward and see the great
defeat tliat would follow the indorse
ment of Greeley and Brown by the
Baltimore Convention. It Is just as
plain tliat such a result would follow,
as it is that such a result did follow the
people's tickets iu Multnomah and

A SH E UTI LE KILL.
Our citizens may or may not have
heard of the advertisement of
the delinquent tax list. It
was advcrtUed, however, as the law
requires, in the litigant organ. The
organ charged no more tor it than It had
the ;urJ right to charge, we sup
pose! The advertisement made some
thing over fitly squares, perhas fifty-
six. At our commercial rates it would
liave cost the county about one hun
dred and fortv-seven dollars. We
would be glad to have onr advertising
space filled witn similar auvenise-
menU at that price. The bill of the
litigant organ was, however, some
wlutt larsrer tlian tlie sum we have
named if we remember rightly, a
little over three hundred ami eiijht dol
lars. At the highest rates for compo
sition double price for table work
the cost of putting the advertisement
in type did not exceed sixty-eight dol
lars. Tlie proprietor therefore pock
eted somew here about two hundred
and forty dollars for his profit. Who
says the litigant law Isn't a good thing
for litigant organs ?
Talk about Grant's nepotism and
taking ways! He hn.i done some
thing in that line. The Ogdonsburg
Journal has been figuring up and it
finds that It is compelled to admit tliat
Grant hs done a good deal for his
friends. Take and give has to a great
degree characterized his conduct. He
commenced at Fort Douelsou, which
he gave to his aunt Columbia ; he
gave Vicksburg to his Uncle Samta-l
for a birthday present ; Mission llidge
to his cousin Yankee Doodle, and Ap
pomatox to brother Jonathan. In
order to perpetrate this nepotism he
had to turn out Buckner. Peuibcrtoi',

LETTER I'BOM IaJSX OOl'XTY.
We have received a letter from L1nn
county (Albany, June 29,) from which
we present the following extracts :
A large portion of the crops of this
county was sown late in the spring,
and consequently tliey were guttering
greatly from tlie severe drouth till
yesterday. Pastures and gardens were
also suffering greatly. The fruit crop
is light here, but better than it U in
Marion county. " The Cula
jooia campuieeting will probably
break up as soon as tlie clouds- cienr
away. The folks and tbeir effects are
very wet. There is great re
joicing among the farmers on account
of tlie great rain. It Ls estimated that
it will be worth nearly a hundred thou
sand dollars to this county. I hoie
that Marion county is sharing in the
lieiietks of the "shower."
James Roberts, a wealthy land owner,
here, las just returned from a lon
journey in the Wrest better pleased
with Oregon than ever before.
This county begins to feel tlie great
benefit or the O. & C. Kailroad. It Is
massing strange that the Democratic
leaders could so mislead the people as
to make them vote the anti-railroad
ticket. How glorimrdy our

FOR PRESIDENT: I XYSSES S.HR.WT
(From Harper's Weekly.)
The enthusiasm with which tlie
President was renominated showed
two tilings : tlie deep gratitude of the
people to a man whose service to the
country has becu inestimable; and
lheir deep indignation at the measure
less calumny which has been licaicd
upon his iiame. The attacks upon
General Grant slww tlie very madness
of liostility. He is represented as a
candidate Imposed by himself or by
somebody else upon reluctant Repub
licans., when nothing is plainer than
that nfflicpublican in tlie country has
so strong a hold upon tlie party as he
a hold which is due not only to the
seuse of his military services, but to
his unswerving fidelity to every prin
ciple of the party and to his own
pledges at his inauguration. With
absurd inconsistency, he is denounced
jus at once the most imliecilc aud the
most dangerous of tryauts.
Indeed, tlie opposition to him is so
Insanely extravagant that it makes
very little impression upon the intelli
gent mind of the Republican part".
And tliat party enters upon its contest
with more real heartiness and unani
mity than iu 1WJS. Its present duty
is to destroy the organization ot the
Democratic party, by battling the ef
fort to give it new life bv the Greeley
movement. And It will do tliat duty
as effectually as it has done all tlie
work to which it has been called. Hav
ing suppressed the rebellion uncon
ditionally and abolished slavery ut
terly, it will now complete tlie de
struction of tlie party which sustained
slavery and produced the rebellion.
And it will accomplish this work un
der the lead of the patriot whom Mr.
Martin I. Towusend, In casting the
vote of New York for him in the Con
vention, descrtlied as "that man of

tin uiglit. and Abe and Allen were
fast asleep in the "cabin." when they
were startled by fuot-tcps on board.
Tliey knew instantly that it was a gang
Of negroes come to rob, and perhaps to
uiunler them, Allen, thinking to
frighten them, cried out, "Bring the
gun-S Lincoln ; shoot them !' Ale
came without a gun. but he fell among
the negroes with a huge bludgeon and
l)clalKrcd them nio-t cruelly. Not
content with Ijetiting them offtlie boat,
lit: and Gentry followed them far back
into the country, ami then, running
back to their craft hastily, cut lon-e
and made rapid time down the river,
fearing lest they should return in
greater numbers io take revenge. The
victory was complete, lait iu winning
it Abe received a scarwhich he carried
with him to his grave.
FAII.VItE OE TIIE OPPOSITION
Tlie New York Herald, after care
fully reviewing the political situation,
says that the Congressional opposition
scheme for the defeat of Grant by
bringing his Administration under the
ban of public opinion, as inefficient,
careless, ignorant, blundering and cor
rupt, liave failed, and that the opposi
tion element will have to cast about
for something else tlian the devcloii-
uieiits ant! doings of the late session of
Congress if they would make even a
vigorous caiui.tigu against General
Grant's re-election. Tlie ersniial ac
counts of Mr Sumner, Mr. Schurz and
others against Grant will go for noth
ing in the Presidential canvass. Tlie
great question iqioii which it will be
determined is this : Will the general
interests of tlie country lie safer under
the administration of General Grant
for the next four years than iu tlie
hands of a new party, or of the old
Deiii.icratic party on a new departure ?

TIIE LIBERAL TAIL. TO TIIE DE.n
OI RATIC PAR I Y.
The Sacramento Bee says : "Tliere
is an old saying that the reason why a
dog wags his tail Is because the dog is
heavier than the tail ; that were the
reverse the case the tail would wag the
dog. We are reminded of this by tlie
anticipated action of the Baltimore
Convention In adopting the Cincinnati
ticket. Independent aiid alone. Mr.
Greeley would draw at most but a few
hundred thousand votes from tliat par
ty ; while the Democrats, at. the last
Presidential electiou, had 2,703,G00.
As it seems pretty certain that the
Democratic Convention is going to
surrender to tlie Liberals, doesn't it
look a little as if the tail would soon
lie wagging Ihe dog? Perhaps, how
ever, the dog won't allow tlie4 tan to
wag the whole of him."
