.The, campaign it beginning to wax
warm; that is, aa warm aa an Indus
trloua few can make It. Odds are all
one way, bat the inordinate love of
Americana to " disease," causes them
to take up everythtnp they hear and
etplain ft The Republicans are confl
dent and have money to back them on
their judgment, but so far only a. few
suckers can be found, they say. Fur
nish money is offered freely wherever
a Chamberlain man get to blowing,
but there are very few who have sub
stantial confidence In Mr. Chamber
One man discussed the matter at
length yseterday , and among othet
things be sad:
" Evidently the Budget does not agree
with the Astorlan on the question ot
assessment and taxation, and tries to
dodge the questions of fact presented
by the Astorlan. It is a well known
fact, that every county in the state
assesses property .not commensurate
with Its value, but in order to reduce
the amount each county ahall contrib
ute to the state. It la generally con
ceded that the railroad property is not
assessed according to its real value,
maim ' 1 I if
It is a singular thing that in the
popular view of disease the interde
pendence of the seversl organs of the
body 1 lost tight of. The heart, for
example, is diseased and it is treated as
if it were entirely separated from, and
independent of, every other organ.
The fallacy of this opinion is shown
by the cures of heart "trouble," liver
trouble," kidney trouble" and other
so-called "troubles," effected by the use
of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery. Primarily the "Discovery" is a
medicine for the cure of diseases of the
stomach and Mood. - But it cures dis-
the stomach, because these diseases have
their origin in a diseased condition of
the stomach and its associated organs
of digestion and nutrition.
I doctored with three different doctori for
mt heart, but they did me do good," writes
Mrs. Julta A. Wlkox, of Cygnet, Wood Co.. Ohio,
x 5a. I in to tired tad diieourured if I ha
t4 my choice to live or die I would bin pre
ferred to die. My husband heard of ' Golden
Medical Diacorery ' and he bought t bottle. I
took that and the flrat half aeemeJ to help me.
I took aix botltea before I stopped. I ant per
fatly well, and mi cooking lor ai boarders.
It baa beta s Cod-arad to mt."
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets cure coo-fUpotiuu,
neither la any otner property la the
city. A man In Upper Astoria has a
home that cost htm 1300ft. It Is as
sessed at I3J0, The Budget office, the
owner of which was offered 1000 for it,
Is only assessed at ISJO. or It per cent
of vtu value.' The railroad company,
according to the Budget, la only ai
scaaed at 10 per cent of lis va'ue, hence
honors are even between the " cltleans'
champion and the railroad.
A prominent farmer In the NehnJem
has a ranch consisting of ltt acres
for which he was offered 13006. It Is
assessed at SS0, or about 10 per cent of
its value. There U not a farmer In
Clatsop county whose property la as
sessed to exceed IS per cent of V
value. The farmers are well satisfied
with their aasesmenta and make no
complaints, neither would there be any
complaints were It not just before elec
tion .and those that art made exist
only in the Imaginative minds of fol
lowers of the lost cause. If the pur
port of the discussion tsto make votes
for h mongrel ticket, it wiU fall far
short, and certainly the Budget has
no kick coming. .
" To show to what depths of political
chicanery the Democrats are Indulging
in, la illustrated by a story circulated
by Democratic politicians, whose claim
to honesty wilt not bear m careful
scrutiny, about Mr. Scherneckau sell
ing a rat to the chief of police and
receiving I cents for It The story la
circulated to belittle Mr. 8cbraec5u,
but when the facta are known, the
circulators should crawl Into their
hole. Mr. Scherneckau did take a rat
to the chief of police and receive I
cents for it, but he did so for the little
son of Mr. C. Roentgen, who had been
warned against the police, a custom
characteristic of some parent who
wua afraid to take the rat to the sta
tion and asked Mr. Scherneckau to do
so for him, which he did, received the
money and paid It to the boy, whose
eyea glistened when he received the
money. This is about the emallest
specimen of political tactic ever In
dulged In outside of the source front
which It came.
"Some of the arguments made by
Mr. Chamberlain In his speech at the
opera house will not bear Investiga
tion. For Instance, Mr. Chamberlain
charged the Republican party with
being responsible for the payment of
a fee of MM to John Hall, of Port
land, for collecting delinquent taxes,
and the contract was made by George
W .McBrlde. secretary of state. It Is
true that Mr. McBrlde made a eon
tract for and on behalf of the state to
pay Mr. Hall 10 per cent of all mon
ies collected from the various counties
for state -taxes due the state .and
George E. Chamberlain waa attorney
general at the time .advised Mr. Mc
Brlde to make the contract and pre
pared the contract himself. The mat
ter waa presented to the ways and
means committee m 1M7. of which Mr.
Custic of this city was a member, and
it was rejected on the grounds, that
the secretary of state had no author
ity to make such a contract The sec
retary of state acted upon the advice'
of Mr. Chamberlain and now he Is
seeking to blame the Republican party
for following his advice. Such argu
ments, when explained, will not re
dound to the advantage of Mr. Cham-,
berlain's candidacy for governor."

The skin is provided with millions of little pores
and -glands invisible to the natural eye, yet through
these tiny outlets the larger part of the deadly matter
that daily collects in the body is carried off. But nature
never intended that poisons of an irritatine or acid
character should be eliminated through the skin, the Liver and Kidneys being their nutura
outlets, and it is when these important organs fail to perform their functions that these acid
poisons are absorbed into the blood and find their way to the surface ot tne body through tne
