THE TRIVJIPH OF PMJICIPI.E.

whether the Cut U uttered by faint or
sinner, statesman or convict. All
truths are independent of human ac
ceptance. They are selt-dependant
and eternal. Man does not create
them. Principles become the proper
ty ot mankind byj discovery, and he
who rejects theia thereby receives tlie
punUhmeut due to unfortunate dull
ness 'or to wilful adhesion to false
hood. It follows from this general proposi
tion, that a cause is to be embraced
solely for the truth or principle there Is
In It. ' "A political party need not de
spair because ot numerical defeat
wheu it is founded on a correct princi
ple. Mankind are so, constituted that
In the long mu they reject error. Ex
citement, Interest, partisan zeal, per
sistence in a wrong course, love of tri
umph, dread of defeat, ignorance,
prejudice, may for a season deter
mine the will of men to reject wbnt is
true in itseli and to embrace a form of
error. But there Is a tendency In tlie
human mind, a slow organic growth
toward something higher and better,
towards everlasting verity. Therefore,
In all the affairs of the world, in art,
literature, science, politics, after vari
ous conflicts the cause which contains
the greater good triumphs. Thus by
a Blow process of elevation Providence
is manifested in human history.
In tlie political conflict that Is now
going on among us, it is necessary to
look tor the principles at stake. On
the one side, there are all the princi
ples that have in the past constituted
the soul of the Republican party. On
the other side, there are absolutely no
principles, there is merely organized
antagonism to an administration. The
truth, the justice, tlie political validity
f Republican principles are admitted.
And because a hostile party has ceased
its opposition to principles, It is fala
clou.ly claimed that our principles are
dead issues. Just as though tlie life of
a principle depended upon hostility to
it ! Two and two do not cease to be
four as soon as knaves and tools cease
to dispute the fact. Republicans are
carrying on the Government accord
ing to certain great principles of pul
lic policy. Those principles do not
cease to be good, do not cease to be ob
jects of affection and -solicitude, sim
ply because Democrats have ceased to
make war upon them.
We are Impudently told by Demo
crats and Liberal orators and journal
ists that we have no business to recur
to our party history. Its glorious rec
ord is part and parcel of la exUt
ance. Because It has done nobly in
the past U a strong reason why it suoukl
be trusted In the future. Democrats
pretended that this is tlie very reason
why it should abdicate in favor of men
who have all tlie good of tlieir lives to
do in the future. It is uot singular tha t
tbey should object to a revival ot the
past. Yet, because their past political
record lias been Infamous, they claim
toe right to administer tlie Govern
ment in tlie future. Even allowing,
for the sake ot argument, tliat tlie is
sues of tlie past are dead, it does not
logically and morally follow that tlie
party whose dead issues liave been hu
mane, glorious and patriotic, should
give place to the party whose dead Is
sues have been inhuman, infamous and
unpatriotic' According to tlie same
doctrine, Jefferson DavU would make
a President of the United States more
zeaous for tlie preservation of the Un
ion than General Grant. Again, ac
cording to the aame doctrine, "Boss"
Tweed woold make an honester Secre
tary of the Treasury tlwn Mr. Bout
well. These conclusions are all legiti
mate from the premises laid down by
the opposing party.
. According to the verdict of universal
history and all political experience,
the party that la organized around the
higher principal triumphs. Still more
does a party embodying lofty principles
with a noble record, triumph over a
party with no principles at all, with a
record that offends the moral aenae ot
mankind. It would be contrary to ex
perience to assert that the Republican
party Can under no circumstances be
defeated. , It may be beaten in some
particular election by one of those ac
cidents to which all parties are liable.
It may be overthrown, however, only
when some new partv arises that has
in It still wore of trutlu, still higher
principles. Uutil then it behoves every
good citizen to adliere to the only or
ganization that at present promises
good government and a consolidation
ot noUer liberty wpu by immense sac
rifice. . The Cincinnati Times-Chronicle well
ays: : "Every mau who has his capi
tal, either of labor or money, at stake,
becomes a business man, whether his
capital Is Invested in a railroad track
or in a horse and cart; in tlie stock ol
a bank or, in the helve of a pick-axe; tu
the merchandise of a metropolis or in
the acre ot tillable land. And the bu
siness men of this country ouderstaud
perfectly well that the election of Hor
ace Greeley means danger to tlieir vl
tal interests." '
The San Francisco Bullutiu says: .."It
la a very significant tact lu the polttic
U campaign that the enthusiasm, as u
rule. Is ou the side of the Republican
party. In' Sail Francisco, as elsewhere

Horace Greeley, while on his stump
ing tour, endeavored to convince the
people that when the rebels htld down
their arms they submitted in good
faith to the Government, and aci'ted
the results of the war. He further
tried to convince them that he liad
stood since the close of the war, single
handed anil alone, battling for amnes
ty, reconciliation, and peace. His
record, as found In the columns of tlie
Tribune tip to his apostacy, proves
this claim untrue. He has done more
through his willful misrepresentation
ot Northern feeling to keep alive
sectional animosities than any otlier
man living. His words to-day are re
kindling tlie sparks of ill-will, sparks
that would have long since expired
but for the breath of this demagogue.
As late as 1$71 he denounced the Dem
ocratic party for doing just what he Is
doing now. The leaders of that pnrty
were holding up the wrongs ot the
South as they are now doing for tlie
benefit of Greeley himself. Yet Gree
ley followed them with his venom, and
warned tlie country agaiust their dan
gerous doctrines. A single extract
from his writings on the subject will
show how lie felt toward the party
ttheu lie iras not iln candidate. W'v
could quote hundreds even stronger
tlian this but this will answer the pur
The Democratic party of to-day is
simply tlie rebellion seeking to achieve
its essential purposes within and
through the Union. A victory which
does not enable it to put its feet on
the necks of tlie black race seems, to
tlie bulk of its adhereiil-s not worth
having. Its heart Is Just wliere it was
w lien it regarded slavery and the Con
stitution aitws names for one thing.
It hates the generals who led the
Union armies to victory, and rarely
misses a chance to disparage them. It
clings to tliat exaggerated notion of
State Rights which makes them the
shield ot all manner of wrongs and
abuses. It takes counsel of its hates
even moro than of its aspirations, and
will be satisfied with no triumph tliat
does not result in the expulsion of all
active, earnest Republicans from the
South. Tribune, March 23, 1871.
Every word In this -extract applies
with equal force to Horace Greeley to
day. VVliat he charged upon the Dem
ocrats is a self-imposed charge upon
himself. Their purposes then are ls
designs now. They have not changed,
but be has. He tells them they are as
Democratic as ever, while at Lancas
ter, Pa., he says : "I am free to confess
that uiy parly associations are not the
tiuue Hme that tltey were a few years ago."'
They liave not come np to his party ;
he admits that he has gone clown to
theirs. He has sold the realities of
truth for an idle dream of the White
It was mentioned the other day that
the bedrock Democrats of Lane county
had placed in the field three O'Conor
and Adams candidates for electors for
Oregon Messrs.Ison of Baker, Hayden
of Polk and Huston of Lane. It trans
pires that about tlie same time a num
ber of Straightouts from various parts
of tlie State met at Portland, and with
out knowing what had been done In
Lane agreed upon an Electoral ticket,
Ben Hayden of Polk, A. W. Fergu
son of Wasco, and U.K. Hauna of
Jackson and procured the printinz
and distribution of tickets for nse on
election day. It Is probable this will
take the place of the other ticket and
constitute the head of tlie Straightout
movement in Oregon. We do not anti
cipate that the ticket will get more than
a few hundred votes, mayhap a thous
and, cast principally by men who
would not have voted for Grant or
Greeley. The movement therefore hits
no significance in the present cam
paign. It is claimed, only, by the or
iginators, as we understand, tliat the
ticket will serve as a nucleous about
which the old bedrock Democrats will
gather and thus preserve the organiza
tion ot tlie genuine Democratic party
It's of no use, however; the organiza
tion of the Democratic party, genuine
or bogus, is practically dissolved, and
there is no virtue or strength in any
faction or fraction of it, to preserve the
party, where the entire orgaization
had none. There Is no such thing,
now, as the Democratic party; it has
passed away. Tlie opposition to the
Republican party is only a coalition ol
incongruous ami unassiinilative ele
ments, which will go to pieces as soon
as the present effort to get possession
of the offlees shall fail. After next
Tuesday it will be in order for the
Straightouts Greelajcrats and all the
rest of the subdivisions of the opposl
tion. to commence the dismal hunt for
new associates and a new name.
OMPETI riOS OX THE RIVER.
Just as we anticipated, tlie failure of
the Loek and Canal Company to dis
pose of their works to the State, has
led to the beginning of an enterprise
which promises to be of some practical
benefit to the farmers , of the upper
Willamette vallev. Several of the
stockholders In the Lock and Canal
Company, with others, have jnst or
ganized and incorporated a company
tor the purpose of running steamboats
on the Willamette river from Port
land to Engene. The capital stock,
we believe, is $100,000. We learn
from one of the memliers of the Com
pany that it is their Intention to put
their steamboats on the river, two of
which will probably be ready to run
by the time the locks shall be ready to
pass them. -Judging from the names
connected with tlie act of Incorpora
tion, the Company will be strong
enough to maintain their line on the
river, even against strong competition
If so we may look for cheaper trans
portation next season. The establish
uient ol this and similar lines is the
legitimate and the only way to secure
cheap transportation. The Canal and
Locks might belong to AorBorC.
without producing any unlike results,
unles It might be to the extent of tin
tolls per ton aa tliey might be charged
higher or lower by tlie one or the oth
er. The maximum being Axed at 75
cents per ton, the aggregate cost of
passing and transporting freight could
not be greatly affected by a cliatige of
ownershlD ot the Locks, the mam
charge being tor actual transportation
Thus if the State had become purchaser
and should charge but fifty cent, the
difference to tlie shipper would be only
twentv-live cents per ton an Insig
nificant sum compared with wlwt the
difference will be made by competing
lines of steamboats. Had the States
obtained .the works, we t should not
have seen inaugurated the enterprise
'we have mentioned. The Company
leaving tlie works still on hand find it
necessary to put on steamboats for the
protection of tlieir swn Interests ; and
thus we Bee demonstrated, already, the
wisdom of those who opposed the
Lock and Dam bill lu the late Legisla
ture. . ..

Liberal pnnpects in Missouri are not

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING VS. AD
Ever since the em ot advertising
was Inaugurated business men of all
classes have been made the victims of
a certain class of men who, with flip
pant speech, and with a persistency as
provoking as it would be admirable in
a bettej- caue. have persuaded them to
enter into their particular scliemes.
These schemes are numerous as many
an advertiser can attest, and when we
weigh their influences in n calm, im
partial manner, we shall liecome con
vinced that they are a sublime frand
UKn the too lenient advertising pnl
lic ; and that the advertiser, when he
has submitted to the imposition, has
literally thrown his money away.
The schemes of these honeyed-fougiuil
and metal-visiged gentry, who besige
the unwary advertiser on every hand
and bore him into giving hiin an '-ad"
which tlie advertiser generally does in
order to get rid of liiui. are as we have
heretofore mentioned exceedingly
numerous. There is the '"programme"
scheme, for instance, cunningly inter
persed with stale jokes or otlier "light
and entertaining readitnr matter," and
handed to the passer by on those .toy
when tliere chances to be an unusual
gathering In the town or city, only to
be glanced at for the space ot a second,
if at all. and then carelessly thrown
away to be trampled under toot. This
is decidediy a waste of money on the
irt of the advertiser. Then, again,
we have the hotel register scheme,
hotel card advertising scheme, and
last, but not least, that most infamous
of all fniuds. the hotel card-rack
scheme, toother with other schemes
too numerous to mention. Now, what
the hooe.t advertisers went, and in
deed, what every advertiser in tlie land
wants, is tlie greatest return lor tin;
amount ot money invested. In order
to do tliis there is bnt one reliable
method, and that Is the newspaper.
Tlie American people are pre-eminently
a reading people, and of all the
literature thrown broadcast over the
country that of the newspaper pre
dominates, and is tlie mot geuerally
read. The people are gradually being
edtveated up to the practice of looking
into the advertising columns of tin
newspaper in order to find where tlieii
wants can be supplied ; this lieing tlie
fact it is patent to every sella
ble advertiser tliat the place to
display his wares is where they will be
the most likely to be seen, which is the
newspaper. Further than this, the
newspaer is far less indestructible as
an advertising medium than any other
medium tliat can be devised, which of
itself is an important niaUer.nnd which
is not the case with many other modes
tliat nave been devised from time to
time. In conclusion, then, it is pre
sumed that the advertiser always wish
es to receive a fair return for his Invest
ment when he advertises. To do this
he must seek the most reliable medium;
that medium is most emphatically the
newspaper, and the wise and judicious
advertiser will always reject every oth
er medium. American Press.

following striking manner :

would not have been elected to the

fidence We saw lit in come stpotiess

We saw in him a total lack of all mili

things he was the exact opposite ot a
Cajsar. His first care was the dissolu
tion of the army in which lay his ynw
er. He always placed his own servi
ces lu the hackground and rendered
conspicuous those of his subordinates.
This is so notorious that the most un
scrupulous forger of history could
make no change in the same. These
traits of character have been no less
prominent in President than in man.
If he did not refuse tlie particular proofs

all of tliese tiausitctiotis took place be

sent such a man, after three years ad
ministration, as the personification of
corruption, as a usurper with an Insa
tiable ambition, and as a tyrant, was
the proceeding which shocked tlie mor
al sense ot the people. It was a piece
of meanness, and tlie people tliem
sclves would act meanly were they to
endorse that sentiment.
