These bank notes are brought into gem r

this State, they realize twelve per cent,

ihe bonds realize to them eighteen per
cent., as they are the only article in
ves:ed. The bonds themselves are ex
empt from taxation, but the circulating
medium, these bank notes, ire taxed ihe
same as oilier money. Yet the national
i,;u!is have the use of nearly double the
amount of their capital the bonds them
selves and the ninety per cent, national
notes. This is one of the great wrongs
perpetrated on the tax payers. When the
Government issues these notes for bonds.

a the parties owning them have the use
of their capital for investment, and thus
save the interest on these bonds to the
Government. And further, the pie lging
of the Guverninent faith to pay all its in
debtedness in coin, has augmented the
debt over one-third, as thee currency ob-
ligations were increased by this venal act
just the amount that the difference was
between coin and greenbacks. This is
what the Democracy allude to in their
platfjrm and which are necessary for an
equitable justment. Mr. Wilson's asser
tions that thi! bonds are owned by poor
people and lh.it the rich man pays Un
taxes of the country is so ridiculously ab
surd that we are somewhat asjonished to
hear such a declaration even from him.

The Lie Nailed Let the Liais
Ilarg their Eeads with Shame.
Portland, 3Iay 12, 1870.
Hon. L. F. GnoYtn Djar Sir:
Having been informed that my
name has been used as authority
for the public statement made
against you in this canvass, that
you, as manager of the Willamette
Woolen Manufactory Co., had pro
posed to negotiate with me for the
employment of Chinese operatives
in vour Mills at Salem. I will state
that you have never negotiated or
proposed to negotiate with me for
the employment of Chinamen in
your Mills, and I will further state
that you never .approached mc on
said subject, and I have always
understood you to be opposed to
the employment of Chinese in said
Mills. Truly yours,
W. I. DOLAXD.
Thus the falsehood, sought to be
proven in the presence of a Court
House full of people, has been put
in their teeth by the party himself
who they slandered by accusing
of being the author. People
of Oregon City, what do you say
to such willful ialsehoods. Be
lieve nothing these men mav tell
you hereatter unless you have bet
ter evidence than their words.
Ouc L'li-.vriS ten Issue.
One of the great questions at issue, al
though through some oversight it has been
touched by the platform of neither party,
is the internal revenue system that great
est outrage ever perpetrated in free
America. Concocted by the blur eyed
Federal Abolitionists as a - war measure,'
it now seems as though they intended fo
fasten it upon us lor nil time to come.
Odious, arbitrary and unconstitutional,
its provisions are repugnant to every
American ciliz'.'ii. Py ii. we are compelled
t i paste our spittle on nearly every docu
ment which men in business pass to each
other. Py it we are compelled under
oath to pubn.di our private affairs, w hence
they are proclaimed to "the world. Py it
hordes of spies and informers are fostered
by the Federal Government to pry into
your busiuess pnrsnits for the purpose, of
holding you for t:ia! and punishment be
fore tlie most infamous court cf the world.
The law is more rigorous than the statute, s
of monarchial governments, ar.d 'he pun
ishments are more severe. Mathiol, for
simply failing to take out a license for the
manufacture of brandy an inadver'ant
oversight on his part has been subjected
to the heavy expenses of a trial at Port
land before the " slanghter-house judge ;"?
has had everything he had seized and con
fiscated, aid has been fined two thousand
dollars, and is to be imprisoned in the
county jail one yea v. Is it in vain that
the Constitution of the United States ex
pressly stipulates that "excessive fines
shail not be imposed, nor cruel and un
iisu4i punishment inflicted ?"' Is this in
ternal revenue sy!rm of taxation distaste
ful to freemen and repugnant to the very
letter of the Constitution to become a perm-merit
system in our land? Are its offi
cials, luxunadng m their princely salaries.'
and arrogant in their arbitrary powers,
s.ill to remain for all lime i:i our midst?
I.s Deady's Court at Portland forever to
remain a slaughter house where our best
citizens are to be arraigned, and where
these excessive fines are to be levied and
these unusual punishments are to be in
fjic'ed? If the free people of Oregon do
pot w ish to fasten this system forever upon
us they must vote the Democratic ticket.
There is no symptom of relenting with the
Radical party. They have indeed pro
posed to mitigate the rate of taxation
somewhat, but tlu'3' have not proposed to
rid ihe people of the system or mitigate
the rigor of its penalties. It is indeed well
for thesu Federal Judges, for these infer
nal revenue, officers, and for their spie
and informers that Ihe bold and iwtquench
ab.e spirit of American liberty d ies not

One II. W. Corbett, who gets up in the
United States Senate, occasionally, and
reads, in a tremalous voice, written
speeches prepared by some one else,
which is a signal always for not only the
people in the galleries, including negroes,
but also Senators on the floor to bri "tak

are almost solely composed of the 6'0i
yre.ssiona! Globe reporters, who can't get
avray, a few deaf Senators and the presid
ing officer. This weak and vain mortal
has signed his name to a letter addressed
to Jo. Wilson, congratulating him on his
nomination to Congress, and saying. I
am proud of our young Stale.' w hich is a
good deal more than the young State is of
Corbett, tor we defy any Oregonian to re
main in the Senate and hear Corbett
through one of his dibits : it is altogether
too distressing. Even Williams, we are
informed, always goes - after"' his hat
w hen poor Corbett takes Ihe floor with Lis
manuscript. In this epistle to Wilsm he
becomes so aggifated as to use a number
of very foolish expressions. For instance,
he is willing 10 s?ee his substance perish
and hi.-s right arm wither before he " ill
support by vote, or act, any form of repu
diation of the sacred debt." alluding to
ihe bonded debt of the United Stales.
We are at a loss to conceive when the
sanctification of this debt occurred. It
must have been at its contraction, when
the broker in New York loaned the Sec-
retary of the Treasury four hundred dol
lars in coiu and took a bond for one thau
suud dollars, assumed to be payable in
lull a' maturity, in coin : or else it is the
reception of the highest rate of interest,
1:1 gold coin, semi-annually, on this six
hundred dollars which the broker never
advanced that sanctifies the transaction
and makes it a "sacred " debt.

No wonder that they have a regard for
this fraudulent debt and call it sacred."
They have made money out of it, indeed
in some, instances collossal fortunes, and
are speculating profitably in it to-day at
the expense of Ihe people. It has been
to them their stock in trade, and better
than their principles in polities, for they
can humbug and rant more about it
pump up more froth and wind on account
of it. tnan even for the nigger,"' who is

like the ligature of the Siamese Twins.
Their political life-blood courses through
it. They have no thought or wish to have
it paid. No. they would rather " fund r?
it. at a rate of interest a shade less than
it bears now, that they may continue to

children's children. It is sufficient now
to say that notwithstanding this s!ailic

Re on the watch. the Radical county
candidates are running around ihe county
making up all sorts of falsehoods against
their opponents Lying has become a
second nature with them, and they can't
help iL We wiil pin some of these lies on
tueir backs before lhe election is over.
The only thing that has constrained
General Palmer to consent to take up
Woods as his fugleman, after the most
veterent beseeching on his part, is the fact
that he has a most wonderful gift of gab.
To be sure there is tri sense in what he
says, as it has been conceded on all sides
that Woods can talk the most and say the
lea?t of any man in America. Put this is
no objection to him within the Radical
party. It is rather a high feather in his
cap. If he could and would talk sense,
he would immediately condemn their
foolish dogmas and pp. nt himself fairly
and squarely on the Oregon Democratic I
platform, and more parti- ularly. on the j
eighth resolution. Put as he talks only
nonsense as all he says is nothing but
" sound and wind, signifying nothing.'" l.e
is deemed just the man for the occasion.
Put the most, particular reason of Palmer
selecting Woods to become his month
piece at this time, is the fact ihat be ex
pects that about one hundred and fifty
niggers will vote for the first time in this
Slate, and he has fears that some ot the
niggers will have too much sense to vote
the Radical ticket, and as it has been de
monstrated that George L. don't talk sense
enough to addie Cult s brain, and as his
style is just suited to the childish compre
hension of the negro. Palmer was con
strained to pack Woods about in order to
secure one hundred and fifty darkey votVs
under the operation of the Fifteenth
Amendment. lie is employed to speas
just became any Guinea nigger can com
prehend all that he ever says. One thing
i.s very sure : if they can't, nobody else on
j earth can
It is well understood that the Supreme
Court of the United Stales has decided
that debts contracted prior to the issue of
greenbacks, could not be paid with that
kind of money. Jo. Wilson, the Radical
candidate for Congress, paid a debt he
owed to the School Found in greenbacks ;
Joel Palmer, the Radical candidate for
Governor, paid Sheridan a no e in green
backs for which he had received thcoin :
Sain Clarke d.d'raude'l the School Fund
out of some Si?)!. This trio are the most
loud mouthed against the proposed plan
of equitable adjustment. They are using
the word honesty to cover up their own
rascality in order to make an appearance
before the world that they are not dis
honest. The two first named persons aie
aware that under the decision of the Sf?
preme Court Hie injured parties can re
cover 'lie did'erence between the green
backs and coin at the time payment wa
made. and hence their opposition to an
adjustment of their accounts. As for Sam.
Clarke, he simply howls dishonesty to de
tract unsuspecting persons from his own
want of integrity, which article he isu'
terly destitute of. The whole thing is the
crv of the thief.
Palmer, the poor simple-headed Radical
candidate for Governor, who (Iceland
ihat the people of Oregon were ' plunder
ers" and vagabonds"' for defending the'r
homes against the Indians, said in Portland
that the majority east of the mountains
would not exceed 200. Woods said in
this place that it would probably beoOO.
Mr. ('rover alluded to these different esti
mates, when Palmer jumped up and said
that the majority against Wilson would
not be over 200. thus conceding ihat he
himself would run behind in that section
::). voies. A man thai would make such
an acknowledgment has not sen-e enough
to fid lhe oflice of Justice of the Peace.
3s u Taxes.
Jo. Wilson Sitid last Friday evening that
the people of this con. a try were paing no
taxes. In the face of this assertion, the
Radical jiapers are publishing a letter
from Williams in wIulIi he slates the.t the
Committee on Finance have agreed to
make a reduction in taxes on imports to
the amount of over $5 1.000.01)0 as much
as the entire expenses of the General Gov
ernment were under Democratic rule.
This is only a reduction on certain aeti
cles. and yet these Radical pettifoggers
iry to gull the people into tlie belief that
we are paying no taxes. t;ut wtt.i an
such falsehoods assertions ami lies which
would make the old Satan himself blush
When Woods spoke last Wednesday
nigh! he appeared very patriotic as fo his
relations to the war. It put us in mind of
Artemus Ward, when he sfid he was wil
ling to - sacrifice all his wife's 1 icli rela
tions" in behalf of it. This appears to be
the case with Woods, as all his relations
were in Price's army, in Missouri, wil h the
exception of the few eslraysthaf reside in
Oreiroti. and Woods would, no doubt, have
been willing to even sacrifice them.
Jo. Wilson, in h s speech last Friday
evening, to prove that the Radical p irty
were opjiosed to the Chinese importation
business, cited the fact that Williams once I
upon a time o'Jored a resolution in the
betiate to prohibit their importation un- .
der labor contracts. He did not object '
to iheir coming as they do now but to
their importation under contracts. Put
this eirort ot Williams' u, .secure a point
