LET ITS HAKE THE APPEICATIOX.
Our text may be found in Sc-uator
Corbett's personal organ :
"The Impossibility of drawing the
great mass of any party into tle ptr
sonal quarrels or ambitions ainn of a
few of its member, is illtistmted in
the nieageriie. of the stjuad of Kepiib
licsins wlio have deserted the ctinili
datea of their party to JiJ?t C.reeley
and Stunner in tlieir Sihemes of re
venge and selflsh greed of power
The patriotic and unambitious who
coiiititute the voting strength of the
party still cling to the old organiza
tion." The text Is a good one. Let us
make tlw application, by a para
phrase, thus: The impossibility of
drawing tlie great mass of the
Republican party of Oregon into
the personal interests and ambitious
aims of one man, is illustrated by the
ineagerness of the numbers who are
willing to sacrifice the organization of
the party, and join with the enemy to
elect II. W. Corbett to the U. S. Sen
ate. The patriotic and unambitious
w lio constitute the voting strength ot
the iarty, stUl cling to tliejld organi
zation and mnnltest a consistent de
votion to Its principles.
The members of the Legislature
who have alreatly indicated their fixed
purpose to stand by the party usages,
and to thus maintain the party or
ganization; number over three-fourth
ofali the Republicans in both houses.
We believe tliat when matters come to
the polut of deciding what shall be
done for aud in the name ol the Re
publican party, this proportion of true
Republicans (who represent the party
instead of a man) will be increased to
nine-tenths. Every man who con
cedes to the party in general, the right
to name the man to enjoy the honors
ot the victory won by the whole party,
will allow the Representatives of the
party to name that man lu the usual,
and the only fair, way by the voice
of the majority. We confidently
count on the integrity and patriotism
ot the members who are, for the time,
entrusted with the destinies of the par
ty, to sway them in their final decision,
rather than to lielieve that they will
allow themselves to be drifted about in
political waters whereof the Republi
can party has no chart and no pilot.
The act ot the Portland Bulle
tin in cominc out as an out-and-out
Republican journal, will be Ira tight
with important results. There was a
general feeling among Republicans
that in the sale of the Oregoniau news
paper to Mr. Corbett, to be his mouth
piece, the party was left without an
organ at the metropolis, where it
puolit to have one. There has, also,
been expressed a general hope that a
sound, thoroughly Republican news
paper would be soon establtthcd there.
The Bulletin's change of base will an
swer this hope in some measure 1 per
liaps not fully, at lirst, because, in the
nature of things the paper cannot,
until after long trial, have the general
confidence of the party, as the Orego
niau had while under the management
of Mr. Scott. The latter paper was
years engaged iu establishing itself in
public confidence. No degree of ability
can at once leap into publiceontidence.
Therefore we say that while the Bul
letin is an excellent newspaper, and
destined without doubt to worW its
way into the largest circulation in the
State.it has got before it a long and
laborious road before it can hope- to
reach the commanding party position
from which the Oregonian fell in a
single day. But we heartily welcome
the Bulletin to the Republican ranks
and wish for it tlie fulfillment of all its
reasonable expectations. It will assist
us greatly iu the great campaign now
Senator Couhett's Personal Or
gan of yesterday contains the infor
mation that twelve Republican mem
bers of the Legislature remained away
from the Republican caucus of the
nreviors evening, couching the au-
nouncement lit such terms as to con-
vince tlie reader that a chucKle of de
light was intended. It presents the
spectacle of a newspaper which pre
tends to be Republican, rejoicing over
the fact that the Republican party of
Oregon, with a majority of fifteen in
the Legislature, is unable to name and
elect its own choice tor United States
S -nator ; rejoicing over the fact that a
man who believes himself not the
clioice of the Republican members of
the Legislature, also believes hinielf
able to secure his own election with
twelve Republican and twenty-eight
Democratic votes. This is hardly a
pleasant spectacle viewed from a Re
publican stand-point. In the exulta
tion which accompanies the telegram
from the capital to the Senator's ier-
sonal organ, a small error occurred in
relation to the number ot members
who "declined to go into caucus."
I'liere were not quite so many as the
organ claims who even stayed away,
to say nothing of the number who
There is to the mixd of a true
Republican a serious suggestion in the
fact that there are here among the
members who abet Mr. Corbett's
scheme of ignoring the Republican
majority in the election of an U. S.
Senator, a very large proportion of
Dolly Varden politicians. Republican
sorelieads and disorganize!1, men with
grievances, men who have either been
turned out of office or have sought and
failed to obtain office, Democratic
wire-pullers and adventurers of all
shades. Some of these encourage Mr.
Corbett in his defiance of the majority,
not caring what might be the disas
trous effects upon our party, while the
latter encourage him, hoping for the
very worst that might follow. To the
Democracy tlie success of Mr. Corbett
in his general scheme, would be a tri
umph and party gain, because it would
break . down our party organization
as It did in 1806, when he defeated tlie

the Republican party. If the Presi
dent knew of this and did not give
the incumbents of office above-men-tioued

we should think he could not reason
ably expect the Republicans of Oregon
to give him the State iu November.

"WHO BROKE Vf THE CAl'lTS OF
Mr. Corbett's personal organ, the
Oregonian, undertakes to relate some
history in connection with the disrup
tion of the Republici.n party of 1866.
As a historian, the writer in Mr. Cor
bett's personal organ. Is not much of a
success. Wlien men talk as historians
they ought to state matters not upon
oj,iuion but as all men agree that
events transpired ; and facts ought to
be stated iu such a way that the state
ment may be supported, if called in
question, by testimony either direct or
strongly circumstantial. Judged by
tliis standard, the history recited by
Mr. Corbett's personal organ, will
We need say but little in regard to
the effort of Mr. Corbett's personal or
ptn to throw upon Mr Mitchell the
blame of breaking up the caucus of
JS(!Q. Aside trom bald, unsupport
ed assertion, tlie article iu the organ to
which we refer, presents but one single
incident which could by any stretch of
disiugeifuousargmiient be made to ap
pear to implicate Mr. Mitchell iu any
degree, with the defeat of the caucus
nominee of ISGO. It is st i ted that Mr.
Upton who had lieen a supporter of
Mr. Mitchell iu the caucus, tailed to
vote for Mr. Gibbs, (in the Convention)
on one ballot when a Democrat ;the or
gan says, two) voted for him. Every
lMxly knows tlutt Mr. Miller (the Dem
ocrat who voted for Mr. Gibbs) would
not have allowed his vote to go on rec
ord for Gibbs if thereby Gibbs' election
WiHild have been secured. It was
simply a "skirmish" vote, and amount
ed to nothing. Judge Upton's vote,
on that ballot, fur Gibbs would not
liave elected him any more than it
would have done on any other b:illot.
But that signifies nothing. The strug
gle between Gibbs and Mitchell had
been fought out (within the pnrty) in
catKti; Gibbs had received the nomin
ation; Mitchell hail retired trom tlie
contest; his supporters had done what
they could for him, and failing, they
were all released from any and all ob
ligation to him. Mr. Mitchell cou'd
not by any fair judgment be held re
sponsible for whiit any man might do
afterward. He might control men so
far as voting for himself was concern
ed, but after he was out of the field,
be. nor no other man. could beheld re
sponsible for the conduct of his former
supporters. It is matter of history
that Mr. Mitchell did labor among his
friends to induce them to vote for
Gibbs and thereby save the organiza
tion of the party. There is not one of
the recalcitrant members but will tes
ify that Mr. Mitchell urged them to
vote for Gibls. It can Improved that
on one occasion he rose from his bed,
long after midnight to so urge one of
tliem; that he finally took him to Mr.
Gibbs' room and that before he left, he
promised to vote for Gibbs. But there
is still stronger evidence than all this
of the good faith of Mr. Mitchell to
ward his successful competitor. It is
matter of record. Iu the Salem Un
ionist of Sept. 2t, 1SCS. Mr. Mitchell
published the following :
'Letter from Hon. J. H. .Hltehell.
Mr. Editor : We are upon the eve
ota senatorial election of unparalleled
importance in the hsstory of Oregon
politics, to the State of Oregon and the
whole nation. Having been a candi
date before the caucus held by the
Union members of the Legislature, i
deem it but just to the Union party,
a well as myself, to say a word to my
friends, whose support I received. 1
staked my chances of success uxii the
action of that caucus, and I have
(ailed. Although my successful com
petitor was not my choice for the po
sition. I hold to the doctrine that he is
entitled to receive the earnest and un
qualified support of every man w ho
particiiated in the caucus, as well as
that of every candidate who submitted
his name to it. And I do, therefore,
respectfully but earnestly urge it upon
all such to 'forget their preferences for
men, and show themselves more than
moral heroes in their love of principle
and their desire to maintain aud pre
serve, at all hazards, the harmony of
j tlie Linnii party and the best interests
of the State and nation, by giving to
the nominee their hearty and" itiniiiali-
tied support. The man who will not
do tlii. under existing circumstances
although painful for me to speak it
is no friend ot mine, and what U iu
fluitcly worse. m fiU-ud ot the Union
party, beneath whoe auspices this na
tion met and conquered the nio-t ter
rible conspiracy against human liberty
and Republican government, chroni
cled in tin) world's history. In union
tliere is strength aud ultimate triumph ;
in division there is weakness, and cer
tain and overwhelming disaster and
defeat. Let not personal preferences,
then, or personal antipathies or ani
mosities, be thrown in the balance
against the well-lieing and future per
manency of American lilx-rtyand tree
government, all of which I conceive to
depend so much upon the preservation
ot harmony in the ranks of the Union
tty the action of that caucus, I con
sider every friend of mine released
front every expressed or implied obli
gation to labor for my preferment;
and as an act, then, of justice to my
self, knowing that I am pledged to the
support of the nominee. I "hope von
will contribute vour votes and influ
ence t secure bis election.
As for myself, it requires no back
handed compliments from the press,
to give me Aaci-6on," or cause me
to do my duty. All such things as
these I scorn with bitter contempt. I
know my duty, and 1 dare do it, re
eardleis of consequences, and indepen
dent of threats of displeasure or ironi
cal praise. I consider the Union par
tv the one to which I own my alle
giance and unconditional fealty ; and
the perfidy of friends, -nor the railings
of enemies, nor the hope ot preferment.
nor the shame of defeat, "nor any other
creature,' hall drive me from my in
flexible purpose to maintain not only
my own political integrity but the in-tein-itv
of that party with which I have
acted and still expect to act. and of
which I shall always Del proud to be an
J. II. MITCHELL."
The historian of Mr. Corbett's
personal organ says there were four
Republicans of the Legislature of 18(5(5,
who bolted the nomination of Mr.
Gibbs. Xow, if Mr. Corbett. himself,
(Mr. Corbett prides himself on being
correct in business) had been called
upon to say how many there were, he
would have answered "three." If he
were called upon to say how many he
conferred with and urged to prevent
the election of Mr. Gibbs (the regular
ly nominated candidate of the Repub
lican irty) he would have answered
"more than three." Sltall we name
the men and state what Mr. Corbett
has since doue for them ?

KO.E PERSONAL .HATTERS.
Mr. Corbett's "personal organ" has
a great deal to say about the caucus of
1803. and pretends deep regret that
Gov. Gibbs was defeated, though it is
a fJict that the Senator has since reward
ed or tried to reward witn office every
person who "bolted' that caucus. In
this article the "personal organ'- as
serts that J udge Upton was one of those
who "bolted," or failed to vote for tlie
nominee. The assertion is that Upton
voted blank on one occasion when his
vote would have elected Gibbs, two
Democrats having voted for him. Now,
here are some facts which the record
shows. -'i i
It is untrue that there was a tlmie
when two Democrats voted for Gibbs.
or that there was a time when be lack'
ed only one vote. Upton voted for
Gibbs on every ballot taken during thafc
session when he received tbo vote, of
any member. Gov. Gibbs did on one
occasion obtain one Democratic rote.
that of Miller, of Jackou county JUd-
he received none on any otlier ballot.
That vote was given after Gov. Gibbs
friends had agreed in caucus to with
draw him after giving him two com
plimentary votes in the Convention,
and it was after Mr. Corbett was nom
inated and while Corbett was tlie nom
inee of the Republican caucus and not
more than ten minutes before Corbett
was elected by the joint convention. ;
Upton voted for Gibbs when the Dem
ocrat, Mr. Miller voted for hun, and
on every other occasion when he re
ceived the vote of any member of the
Legislature, as may be seen by the
The object of Mr. Miller in voting
for Gov. Gibbs was not that alleged
by the "persona f organ," but it was in
pursuance ot a thoroughly considered
and matured plan of the Democrats to
procure an adjournment' immediately
before the time fixed for the vote that
elected Mr. Corbett by getting up a
"scare" among the Corbett men.
Such adjournment at that time would
undoubtedly have prevented Corbett's
election. Xo one at that time had
any expectation that Gov. Gibbs could
possibly lie elected, as thirty-five Re
publicans were then pledged to Mr.
Corbett. Persons who were thorough
ly cognizant of all the facts as they ex
isted on that tiny expressed the te)lef
(and hoid to it yet) that Mr. Upton's
action in the premises saved Mr.
Corbett the same fate that Mr. Gibbs
had already met.
Mr. Corbett has bought an organ
and hired, apparently, several men to
say what the boss thinks. Of course
the owner is master and the others are
the master's hired men. Hired men
are paid to do as directed. According
ly we are not surprised to find Mr.
Corbett's personal organ sounding, in
lofty strains, the praises of Mr. Cor
lett. Here is a specimen of what Mr.
Corbett directs one of his hired men to
say in his personal organ :
A more sound and reliable Repub
lican and Admistration man tliau he
does not exist in Oregon."
That, is putting it pretty strong, but
we tlid not quote it for tlie purpose of
controversy only to show how con
venient a thing it is to have a person
al organ and a hired man. Again it
is Mr. Corbett's opinion as sfated in
his personal organ that, lie
" Will still continue to have,
the confidence of the entire Re
publican party and people of
Oregon, as one who has accomplished
more for the material and substantial
interests of Oregon than any other
representative heretofore sent to Wasli
ingtoii. And we lelieve it will be a
long time In-fore another will be chosen
who will give the same satisfaction."
This, aoain, is putting it rather
strong tor even a personal organ ; but,
again we say we have not quoted for
the purpose of indulging in controver
sy, only to show slill further, how
convenient it is to have a personal or-
'au and a hired man.
I'he Olynipia Transcript (Greeley)
thinks that the recent change in the
Oregonian indicates that that paper
will "change its policy before Novem
ber." The Transcript savs that those
who now control the Oregonian have
lieen "supposed heretofore to sympa
thize with the Liberal Republicans."
It is not singular that the Transcript
should have formed this opinion when
it is so patent to everybody that the
disorganizing policy pursued by the
Senator and his ersonal organ plays
directly into the hands, ot the Greeley-
ites. The Domoentey of Oregon con
fidently expect to profit by it.
Mr. Corbett's personal oroax
says of the Senatorial election of 1800:
Gibbs was undoubtedly the choice ot
four-fifths of the Republicans of tlie
State." So he was : or. at least, was
the choice ot a considerable majority,
which ought to have been enongh to
elect him. Rut he was defeated
through the agency of one H. W. Cora)
bett, who had the control of an incon
siderable minority of the Republican
members of tlie Legislature. The
same man is now trying to secure con
trol of another sufficient minority to
again prevent the Republican party
from naming and electing its omi

call, Monday evening from Mr. James
M. Melville ot Dundee Scotland, who
is visiting this State to learn the ad
vantages ot Scotch emigration hither.
He went up the road yesterday to

probably learn something definite in
regard to his purposes iu the matter of
sending his people out to Oregon.

THE CAT 11'T OF THE BAU.
The ratsONaL organ of Mr. Cor
bett, says: 0 jr. Corbett. we are in
formed, lias ne rcr objected to the cau
cus but he is nt willing to submit his
uame to a caucas unless the entire par
ty is represented therein. If tliere are
men iu the party who are unwilling to
go Into caucus to be bound hand and
foot by the attorney of a certain corpo
ration, it is no ttult of Mr. Corbett."
There it Is In a nut-shell. Mr. Cor
bett 1$ not willlpg to go into caucus as
tongas he thhdU tlie attorney" will
beat him there. If he tliought he (Cor
bett) could get the nomination he would
not object to a caucus. That is the
plain meaning tf the above quotation
and k is just wliat has all along been
understood to be Mr.Corbett'sJposltion.
Having concluded that lie would be
beaten in caucus be concluded next to
stay out of caucus and hold eight or more
Republican members who are devoted
to him. In, a fiilse, position with respect
te aity that elected them, and at
tlx; same time be able to defeat an
election ot anybody else. If the "en
tire party" lias not been and shall con
tinue uot to be, represented iu caucus,
the. country will know that Mr. Cor
bett Is responsible for It. How can he
persuade men to stay out, at id then
justify himself for staying out. by stty
hi ie could not submit to a caucus on
tlte ground that the members would
nor all go iu ? It is shallow ; it is less
than subterfuge and ainoemts to no
more than petty" jugglery. It -is im
possible for 3Ir. Corbett to jt: slify him
self before the Republican party in the
ocxirse be is pursuing.
The time has fully arrived when
the Republican members of this Leg
islature should be decided whether
Utey wiU adhere to the fortunes ot
senatorial aspirant without regard to
the effect such action will have tqion
their party, or whether they will put
thettirxvs. and stability of their par
ty before all personal considerations.
