It will be remembered that the last
National Democratic Platform contained
one or two planks from the Democratic
platform of Oregon which had been laid
down just previously. And gentlemen
who have traveled in the Atlantic States
and conversed with Democrats of differ
ent States, have been astonished at the
encomiums which the Oregon Democracy
have received from the Democrats of all
sestionsf the Union. They assert that
the Democracy of this State have preserv
ed from polution more purely the tradi
tions ot the nartythan have those of any
other State? This is true. Living in the
free mountain air and breathing the un
contamina&d breezes of tho Pacific, we
think and speak as freemen on all ques
tions at issue. On the finance question
th Democracy of Oregon has planted
itself re it never can be moved and
where it isalestincd to win a crowning
victory. It has planted itself on National
equity, and where we venture to predict
tho next National Democratic Convention
will stand. Greedy scoundrels who wish
mh the neonle. for the bondholder of
double what lie can legally claim, will
warmly interpose their stupid plea of dis
honesty, for above and beyond the hoarse
croaking of thes ignoble rascals, will be
heard the grand cry of an oppressed and
over taxed nation in behalf of the enforce
ment of National equity.
.' G(5d is with us who will falter?
Justice, who withstand?
Onward then for hearth and altar,
Right and native land."
Iisrepkesentatioxs. There are cer
tain degrees of truth and honesty which
9re necessary for a paper to maintain to
entitled it to confidence in its statements.
The Oregonian does not appear to make
any pretensions in this way. at least, so
we should jndge from its continual mis-
Q representations and forgeries. Some time
since that paper copied, or pretended to.
some extracts from the Corvallis Union,
and charged the authorship on Mr. Slater.
When caught in its forgery, it asserts that
I)emocratsGstated that Mr. Slater was the
editor of the I'nion when it was suppress
ed. He told one falsehood to get out of
the first. The name of the editor of the
C'uouatthe time it was suppressed is at !
the head of that paper, and if the editor j
of'tbe Oaegonian had rot wished to com- !
mit a willful) forgery, he could have readi-!
y ascertained that Mr. Slater was not the j
author of the extracts nnbUshed. !
The Radical party has been noted for
the adroitness which it possesses in the
perversion of words used in ordinary con
versation. For instance, during the war,
the word "loyalty was made by them to
express adherence to the most unconstitu
tional dogmas and procedures. To be
loyal in the Radical acceptation of the
form, a man had to forswear fealty to the
great written law of the Constitution and
give his adhesion to the unwarranted us
urpations of the Executive as well as to
treasonable enactments of a Rump Con
gress. And now. on this finance question,
we find the same perversion of the word
honesty. According to the Radical
theory j a man to be honest must support
that party in its endeavor io rob the peo
ple through its high tariffs and excessive
taxation, in order to give the bondholder
double the amount he ever loaned the
Government. The Democratic party,
which proposes to pay the last farthing of
the honest indebtedness of the Govern
ment, but not one farthing more, is stig
matized by the Radicals as dishonest. An
"equitable adjustment," which, is but
synonymy of an " honest adjustment," is
termed by them robbery. Josh Billings,
the greatest of living American philoso
phers, has classed in one of his esi-ays,
honenty as one of the lost arts. So far as
the Radical party is concerned, this is lit
erally true. What they call honesty, is no
more tho genuine article than was their
much-vaunted "loyalty." They have
perverted the, meaning of these terms the
better to hide their own rascallity and
BougUt and Solsl.
It is a, terrible state of public affairs
when men openly require written obliga-
j tions from aspirants'to office to the effect
that they will advance the Interests of this
or that individual ; but it is worse when
the public mind has become so corrupt
that the men can be found who will open
ly and shamelessly sell themselves i'cr a
nnminnlinn. Vet sneh nnrrhases and
, , t -, - T1 i i .
sales were completed m 1 ortland last
week between Ben. Ilolladay and the Re-
publican nominees. The railroad "rant
provides that the terminus shall be in the
j , rwnand. and in order to comnlv
with the requirements of the act. Mr. Ilol
laday conceived the brilliant idea that
tne countv must be consolidated with the
' city proper. Knowing that the Radicals
of Multnomah county were obliged to
comply with his demands, he positively
refused to furnish them any money to
carry the election if they nominated any
one who had not signed the agreement !o
support this proposition and also George
II. Williams for U. S. Senator. The agree
ment was presented for his signature to a
Front street merchant, who indignantly
spurned the proposition. There were
those found, however, who were ready to
sell themselves to Ben. Ilolladay and of
these the Radical ticket of Multnomah
county is composed. It now remains to
be seen "whether the free white voters of
that county will endorse the sale thus en
tered into by these parties. If they do,
they deserve no better name than slaves,
unworthy to bear the name of freemen.
Not our Fm:lt.
It is painfully amusing to witness the
protestation of offended honesty made by
the Radical scoundrels over the proposi
tion contained in the eighth resolution of
the Democratic platform. They profess
to see in this demand for equity a dishon
est purpose. Heaven bless their honest
hearts! Is equity dishonest? Will an
equitable adjustment of the bonded debt
abate one jot or tittle of its amount if it
be valid and not fraudulent? Nobody will
make such foolish assertion.':. Then why
this terrible outcry? Is it because they
are aware that the bonded debt would
lose some of its gigantic proportion if
equity was rneeted out between the bond
holder and the tax-payer? This must be
the case. But (his is not the fault of the
Democratic party. Why then should it
be blamed rather than the terms of a
fraudulent contract, which, if adhered to.
would wring from the people more than
double what equity and justice would de
mand? True as rre;ielxiug.
In ninety-nine cases out of one hundred
it will be found to hold true, that tho men
who blab the loudest about the dishonest
proposition in the eighth resolution of the
j Democratic platform, are men whose past
records for honesty and fair dealing will
not bear the; closest inspection. Take
them as you meet them and when they
iDveigh against that resolution and hold
up their hands in holy horror, just go
back over their record and you will not
fail once in a hundred times in finding out
that their rebuking a seeming dishonesty
is the selfsame old trick of Satan rebuk

The people of Oregon can blame Joel j
Palmer, the Mongrel candidate for Gov
ernor, as much as anyone else for the pay
ment of their claims growing out of the
Indian war of IS33-jC. He was in full
aflilliation with Gen. Wool, who quoted
him repeatedly in his correspondence with
the Government in relation to the war
o-enerally and these claims particularly.
Wool, as is. welt known, took an early op
portunity to. place himself in antagonism
to our.' people, and was their inveterate
enemy, classing them as " murderers and
plunderers of the public treasury." be
cause of their energy in defending them
selves from the attacks of hostile Indians.
Wool was probably influenced more by
Palmer than any other person in his
wanton and outrageous assault upon the
character of our people. Here is a speci
men of Palmer's style of correspondence
with Wool, beinar an extract of a letter
from him to Wool, dated at Columbia
Barracks (Fort Vancouver) W. T., Nov.
1st. 1855 :
Tae future will prove that this war has
been forced upon the Indians against their
will, and that too. by a set of reddens
vagabonds, for pecuuiary and political ob
jects, and sanctioned by a numerous popu
lation who regard the treasury of the Lnueu
States a legitimate sv.ljed of plunder.
In the same tone he wrote to the Com
missioner of Indian Affairs' at Washing
ton. It is true that Palmer was turned
out of office that of Superintendent of
Indian Afiairs and that Wool was -'shelved
" at Troy, N. Y., but that was small re
dress for the prejudice they had created
against, the interests and character of the
citizens of Oregon. And now this same
man Palmer is presented to the voters of
this State to receive their support for the
highest oflice in their gift. There is a good
deal of ice in this.- Indeed, it is the cool
est thing ever done by any party, not to
give it any other signification. We think
it rather too soon for Palmer to be en
dorsed ; he must wait a while and find a
few more passes through the .mountains
to profitable gold diggings and lucrative
traffic with the Indians and miners, in
which way he indicates that he has been
of service in the past. Perhaps so, and
certain iy more to be commended than
his official service. We apprehend that
the people will allow him to continue the
performance of the duties of private life.
Pkokahly Ri Moit Only. We have very
little faith in the statement that an oppo
sition is to be started against the North
Pacific Transportation Company, on the
routes from San Francisco north. In the
first place, there is no demand for any
more or better accomodations than we find
in the Ilolladay line at present ; secondly,
there is neither freight nor business for
the steamers and coasters now employed ;
and lastly, as Mr. I loll a day's inteeests
have become so much identified with the
development of our State during the pat
two years, the public here would very
probably stand by his interests if there
were forty in opposition to him. Oregon
ian. When a paper becomes corrupt enough
to sell itself, there is no limit for its efforts
to serve its master. The Oregonian hav
ing sold out to Ilolladay 's interests for his
influence to carry the State election, is
not satisfied with its services in behalf of
his railroad interests, but now goes for
sustaining him in one of the gr-atest out
rages and swindles ever perpetrated on
the people of Oregon. The above extract
is fab e in loto, ami is only published for
the benefit of the impostor and to the
detriment of the people of Oregon. In
answer to the first proposition contained
in. the above extract, we say that there is
a demand for better facilities for franspor-
tation ; it is the higjr rates of freight that
this monopoly charges that keeps our
farmers from realizing a reasonable re
muneration for his products: secondly.it
is well known that the old tubs now run
ning between San Francisco and Portland,
pay for themselves in two or three trips
and they com.' up loaded with freight and
passengers, and always return with a full
freight end passenger list, which would be
doubled if the prices were not so exor
bitant ; thirdly, the only interest he has
m anifested to develop our State has been
for his own pecuniary benefit. To him
and his associates we owe the loss of a
targe share of (ravel to and from Idaho,
because they could travel other routes so
much cheaper, and Portland has lost more
in this way than he has expended on the
railroad. lie is constructing a railroad
through this valley, for which the people
of Oregon contributed both land and
money, and in which they expected to
retain an interest, but he has ' frozen "

thing himself, and .should he complete the
road, it will only aid him to complely
place the people of Oregon at his mercy.
by connecting the interests of the railroad
with the steamers, thus precluding the
possibility of a successful competition.
The people of Oregon are nurshing a
serpant that will m due time fclmg them
with its poisonous pangs.
Great Enehgy: From the Radical pa
pers that belong to Geo. II. Williams, we
are led to the belief that this individual
is very industrious at present. He has
been in the Senate nearly six years, and
never has done anything 'worth mention
ing. But now he is very busy in sending
telegrams and letters, stating what is go
ing to hi done. We may expect his en
ergy to continue until after the election,
when it will subside again into making
Radical speeches. This dodge will not
win. He is too well known.

The City Kli-ctiun.
In the local column will bo found the
result of the city election, hold in this
city last Monday. The Radicals elected
their entire ticket. The whole number of
votes polled was 230, r. hich is 40 more
then were cast last year, and the Radical
candidate was elected last Monday by 27
majority, and one year ago by 2G.
showing that in proportion to the vote the
Democracy gained more than the Radi
cals since the last election. We had no
feeling in this matter, and would have
been satisfied if we could have acknowl
edged it an honorable defeat. But such
is not the case. No honest man can feel
otherwise but ashamed and humiliated at
the manner this result was obtained,
be he Democrat or Republican. Men
who had not resided in the city t n days,
and others who are known not to belong
within he city, and even some who had
not residal in the county for years, came
up to the polls and before high heaven
t ok the oath that they were citizens of
this city perjured themselves in order to
carry the election. These are sad facts,
known to the Radical as well as Demo
crats. .Some, who have claims to respec
tability, attempted ' to get others to take
the oath, but, be it said to their credit,
they had not yet descended so low in the
sca!e of human depravity as to wilfully
swear a falsehood. Over thirty illegal
votes were polled by the Radicals, most
of which were sworn in. The railroad
hands, who have n t now nor ever did
have a residence in the city, were furnish
ed tickets by their masters and ordered to
vote. By this means the Radicals carried
the election, and it is more to their shame
than credit. Honest people are disgusted
at these outrages and will no longer act
with a party so criminally guilty before
God and man.
There is a lesson to be learned in this,
which should prove of value on the first
Monday in June. It is shown by their
action that perjury will not prevent them
from voting. Let every poll in the coun
ty be guarded well on the day of election
and see that none but legal voters vote.
i The Democracy iciZbave a fair expression
of the legal voters at all hazard, let come
what may, and those who shall attempt to
defeat that expression, had better be care
ful how they make attempt with a
people who know their rights, and know
ing them, dare to maintain. We are
willing (o abide the deeisioj of the legal
voters, whether it be for or against us, but
never to one that is made by perjured
interlopers, who are hired to defeat the
wili of the legitimate citizens. Let hon
est Republicans consider to what degree
of infamay their leaders have come and
forsake them as they would a convicted
felon. Freemen of Clackamas county,
will you endorse this infamy at the elec
tion on the CUiof June? Wilt you de
clare to the world that you are in favor ol
a party w hich carries elections by Mich
means? If not, east your votes against

outrages to the pit of everlasting damna

selves by their false oaths.
Scoundrel ism lrosrrcsslii'r.
As was predicted in this paper some
time ago, that. IJolladsy and Williams
would discharge all Democrats wo: king
on the road or remove them into other
counties just prior to the election. Last
Monday a large number of hands were
discharged from work on the road in Mult
nomah county, and on the following day
an advertisement appeared for one hun
dred men to work on the road in this
county. A person with any sense what
ever can see what the results of this move
would be. These men, thrown out of em
ployment in Multnomah county, would,
as Ilolladay expects, avail themselves of
the opportunity thus readily presented,
and by this means they would be removed
from where their votes would cotint on
any county ticket. Could men be guilty
of a more high-handed outrage than is at
tempted in this move against the people
of Oregon? They are doing this to defeat
the legitimate voters of Oregon, for their
own aggrandizement. Will honest m?n
support a party so venal and corrupt as
tins led and controlled by Williams and
Holladay? Will they record their votes
as slaves to these scoundrels who are do
ing all in their power to defeat the legal
voters of this State? If you are not
slaves to these men. place your votes
against these attempted outrages and
show them that the people of Oregon ure
yet freemen. They are aiming to enslave
you and your posterity, and if you further
trust them you deserve no better fate.
Who is this Ben. Ilolladay that seeks to
thus control you and your interests ? An
intinerant money shark, who lias robbed
you through one of the greatest monopo
lies on tho Pacific coast, by high freights
and passage, and now he attempts to con-
trol your political interests as he has your
commercial. If you will countenance
such open and barefaced rascality, you do
not deserve the name of freemen. " Look
well and calmly on these matters before
you cast your votes on the first Monday of

A Traitor in the Field.
We probably should apologize to our
readers for devoting any more space to
the subject of this article, but as the Radi
cals appear to give him a prominence, we
feel justified in giving our readers what
we have learned about Jasper W. John
son. This individual was a delegate in
the last Democratic contention, by some
unfortunate mistake of the Democracy of
Curry county. He now claims that the
platform teaches repudiation, which he
knows, provided he knows anything, is
false. If he had been honest in this be
lief, and an honorable man, he would not
have participated in the proceedings of
that convention after the platform was
adopted, which was done the day before
the nominations were made, and he re
mained in the convention. This excuse of
his regarding repudiation is false, as his
subsequent actions show most conclusive
ly. He obtained a letter from a gentle
man at Salem recommending: bun to per
sons in Portland as a good canvasser, but
he found that better talent than his
could be obtained even on tho reserva
tions, and that Democrats had no use for
bim or his kind. He soon found willing
purchasers, however, among thoie who
formerly owned him, with this under
standing : He was to canvass the State
professing to be a Democrat, but opposed
to the platform and keep as many Demo
crats as possible from voting the ticket at
the present election, and to wages a war
within its rariKs after the election in behalf
of a third party for the Salmon P. Chase
movement for the next Presidency. For
this service to the Radicals he asked $1,
000. and which we snj pose he received.
He has a perfect right to sell himself
whenever he can find a purchaser, but
he has no right to expect or receive the
courtesy due a gentleman when he takes
upon himself to play the part of a traitor.
This he is attempting to do. and in his bill
of sale te included some gentlemen who
he said would act with him in his treach
ery. It will not be well lor this traitor
when these gentlemen learn that he has
used their names in connection with a
scheme to betray the Democracy.
The Radicals have attempted to make
party capital for their nominee for the of
fice of State Printer, on the ground that
he is a practical printer. If he were a
practical workmen, we see no reason why
he shcnld receive the votes or support of
the craft " over Mr. Patterson. The lat
ter is engaged in publishing a paper that
gives employment to eight practical print
ers, while the former never has given em
ployment to but one, and that has only
been since he has resided in Washington
City. As the Mongrels appear to be ig
norant of the history of their candidate
for this office, we will enlighten them
on the subject : He does not know
the first principles of the trade, and could
not hold a situation as compositor in a
well regulated weekly newspaper office ;
he has not been in the State but about
three months for the past three years and
more; he has been door-keeper and under
clerk at Washington City during that time :
he has a person employed in that city who
writes letters for him, which are published
in the Journal under the head of " editor
ial correspondence;" we are informed that
since he has resided at Washington he has
exercised the right to vote in that District
and has thereby forfeited his citizenship
in this State. It is understood that he is
not qualified to hold the position and was
only nominated to fill up a vacancy on
the ticket. The apparent sympathy of the
Radicals towards the crr.ft are as hypo
critical as most of their professions when
they desire votes. If their hypocracy
neeeds any evidence, we refer them to 1 lit
nomination and election of Gordon and
McPherson, neither of whom were print
ers, it is only an etiort to make votes.
