SPECIAL , ELECTION-THE
A special election for Congress
mau to fill the vacancy occasioned
by the death of Judge Wilson will
be held in this State some time
during the coming fall, Each
party will have a candidate in the
field, and already are the merits
and claims, and availability of va
rious aspirants being discussed.
The Republican managers are
evincing considerable trepidation
already. They know that upon a
fair vote, the Democracy have a
large majoritp of the votes of the
State; and 'that if they cannot ma
nipulate Portland they stand no
sort of show in the race, less in
deed than they did upon a fair
vote last Juue a year. In addi
tion to the usual questions going
to make up the the theme of dis-
cussion in our campaigns, the Re
publican party will be coufronted
with the salary steal, the Chinese
influx and the Louisiana infamy.
The salary steal they will have to
face squarely; that will admit of
no species of shuffling or evasion.
The Chinese question they will
attempt to evade,by resorting to
the usual subterfuges of the dem
agogue, They cannot escape it,
however, for the Burlingame
treaty» was a Republican measure
and was ratified by a Republican
Senate. This treaty opened up
the floodgates of Coolie importa
tion and lenha stiinuloun to Chi
nese immigration such as, in a few
jihort years, promises to over
whelm us. In this State a Dem
ocratic Legislature, in 1868, passed
a Chinese embargo act. This was
vetoed by a Republican Governor.
Since that time a Republican Con
gress has passed a law forbidding
the enactment of anv statute in
any State which shall in any way
discriminate against the China
man. This act was approved by
a Republican President and leaves
thaStates manacled and power
less at the feet of the barbarian
hordes which annually rush to
these s’noreA And this Chinese
question is every day beconing
more serious and alarming. Hard
times pineb the p< or of this coast.
Beggary and want stare multi
tudes in the face, while the rat-
• eating Chinaman crowds himself
into all the avenues of employ
ment. The want of the times is
the repeal by CongresB of the in
famous Chinese protection act,
leaving each State free and un
trammelled to deal with such
questions as affect its internal poW
ity in its own way. This repeal
can never be secured until the po
litical complexion of Congress is
changed. Let Oregon be true to
her own interests, trim to herself
and true to the whole country by
electing a Democrat to Congress
this fall. Great and needed re
forms depend upon the reforma
tion of our National Legislature.
Our State can contribute much
toward exempting herself from
Congressional thralldom by her
fiat this fall.
Taking a calm and unimpas
sioned survey of the whole field,
it is not difficult to forecast with
^certainty the complete triumph of
the Democracy in the coming
