14 Stop Thief cry.
The Statesman and other small fry in the
Radical ranks, appear to be highly exci'.cd
over what they claim a discovered design
on the part of the Democracy of Yamhill
county to buy Radicals to leave the county.
This is only one of the stop thief" cries
gotten up to detract public attention from
what they know is in possession of Demo
crats. Ihey know that V. A. Mcl herson,
editor of the McMinnville Blade, has
drawn orders on Major Berry. Superin
tendent of the Penitentiary, for money,
and given passes on Cant Atmerson. to
parties to be taken to Salem, which have
not been presented, and the parties are
yet in lumhill. tor fear of these letters
being published, they have .concocted this
story. e were shown two letters some
three weeks since, signed by W. A. Mc
Pherson, one to Capt. Apperson, to see
that the bearer goes to Salem, and we will
make it all right," and the other addressed
to Major Berry, in which was this sentence:
Pay the bearer $" and charge to ac
count. He came to this county in the in
terest of the Democracy, and is now dis
gusted and wants logo back to Silverton."
Everybody knew that the Radicals have
been playing this game for some time.and
it was regarded as useless to mention it.
But while we "are on this subject, we
would ask where the money comes from
to pay these orders drawn by Me. Did
Williams furnish it, or is it taken out of
the proceeds from brick sales made at the
Voters of Clackamas County,
The contest has now come to action. On
Monday next you are to choose between
the two parties which will govern you for
the coming two years. It is a conceded
fact by all. that the verdict in this county,
if made by legal votes, is in favor of the
Democracy. It therefore behooves every
Democrat and white man. to be on
duty on that morning, and watch that none
but the legal voters have a voice in the
selection of the officers who are to govern
the county. The extravagance and pro
fligacy of the Radicals for the past eight
years calls for a change in your county
affairs. The legitimate citizens are en
titled to that change. Let but proper ex
ertions be made on your part, and the
county will give a handsome majority. and
with the inauguration of Democrats into
office will come a reduction of vour heavy
taxes, and all the blessings of a liberal
and honest government. To you the con
test is now given. Do your "duty and all
Gives It Up.
The Oregonian has given up all hopes
of cariying the State, and now comes out
begging the honest Republicans who will
not sell themselves to Ben. Ilolladay, Wil
liams & Co., to save the Legislative ticket.
It's no use Mr. Oregonian. your fate,
when you linked it with that infamous set
of corruptionists was sealed, and no
amount of coaxing and begging will save
you from utter and complete destruction.
Your sins have become too heavy for
you, and they are bound to sink you and
your party into everlasting defeat. The
people are not yet slaves ; and are deter
mined to cut loose from the Chinese-nigger
party before it is too late.
We supposed from the beginning that
the ticket placed in nomination by the
Radicals was a burlesqne, but did not
think the Radical organs would make an
acknowledgement of the fact, at least un
til after the election. The Jacksonville
Sentinel, in speaking of its candidates,says
" to show the superiority of the Repub
lican nominees over the Democratic, it is
only necessary to mention" II. R. Kincaid,
who ia a practical printer, over his oppo
nent. We concede that Mr. Patterson is
not a practical printer, but we also know
that Kincaid is nothing more than an ap
prentice at the trade. He don't know
anything about it ; ne has worked at it
long enough to make a printer if he ever
would, but unfortunately for him, he is
one of that dumb class who made a mis
take in his calling. He has changed his
occupation in disgust, we presume and
taken up with one more congenial to his
tastes, nnd that is. on the nigger police at
Washington City. Mr. Patterson, though
he never learned the trade, during the
time he has been connected with the busi
ness of publishing, has learned more about
the actual workings of the trade than Kin
caid knows. The fact of the matter is. the
Sentinel meant to burlesque the ticket,and
took this opportunity to do it, knowing
that it would be taken so wherever Kin
caid was known. Oh cruel! Why so un
kind to your Chinese-negro candidates.
Kincaid superior to Jo. Wilson ! Why.
simpleton, the niggers in Washington who
serve with him on the police hardly re
garded him as their equal. We are in
formed that he has caused many Oregon
ians who saw him there in his uniform to
feel ashamed that Oregon had a repre
sentative among the negro watchmen, lie
is, however, a fair specimen of the rest of
the Radical ticket.
You have a solemn and heavy responsi
bility to meet on next Monday. To your
efforts is given the choice whether you
will relieve this county from the rule of
an extravagant, dishonest and worthless
party, and install honest, competent men
men who are known for their integrity
and whose every interest is identiGed with
the success and prosperity of your county.
If you discharge your duty faithfully and
boldly, a glorious victory will be the re
sult. You owe this day's labor to your
State, your country and your family. Be
not derelict in discharging it. Be at the
polls early, and exert every influence you
possess to bring thinking and honest men
to your cause. Every vote cast this time
for the Democracy, is one for a white man's
Government, and a perpetuation of the
principles ot our forefathers, while every
vote cast for the Radical ticket is one for
a mongrel institution, unwerthy of the
name of government.
In 1862. the Federal scoundrels in this
State, prominent among which was B. J.
Pengra, then Surveyor General of Oregon,
wrote letters to intimidate voters from
oting the Democratic ticket, staling that
they (the pap suckers) would confiscate
the property of all who did vote the Dem
ocratic ticket. The same thing is being
done this year. The land office in this
city is used for this venal purpose, and
we have good reason to b;l;eve that more
than one letter containing threats has been
written in the back room of that office.
The letters written by the man above
named did no more harm than to ever
lastingly sink the author in shame and
disgrace among men, just what will be the
result of those engaged in the dirty work
now. They will bear the brand ot dirty
scoundrels fastened on their backs for the
remainder of their miserable existence.
The Infamy Complete
in another column we publish the bill
to enforce the fifteenth amendment. We
have not space to, comment on this piece
of Radical infamy, and can only ask our
readers to read it for themselves. It will
make the blood of every white man in the
land boil with indignation at the insult
perpetrated upon them, and especially
Oregonians, who had declared by their
votes that negroes should not even come
into the State, and now they are forced
on the State as legal voters by a heavy
fine and imprisonment. The next bill will
be for the protection of the Chinese voters
if the people continue to endorse the
scoundrels in Congress. Williams among
the number. He voted for this infamy,
and every vote cast for the Radical candi
dates for the Legislature, is one vote for
Judge Caples. in his speech last
Wednesday, said that there was a poster
up in Portland for 500 laborers. Just so.
And now the wages will be cut down,
and then the 500 cannot be bad. and the
Chinamen who were brought here by
Ilolladay, will be put to work. If he is
so anxious to get 500 white men to work
on the road, why does be not bring up
this number on his steaners, who are in a
starving condition in Sari Franciso. His
plans are laid, and whether the men on
the road vote for or against him, after
the election they must work for China
men's wages or quit. This is the simple
His Death Knell.
The expose of Williams' treachery in
the Humboldt Railroad bill ha3 caused
the honest people of Portland and the
west sida, to emphatically renounce
against bim. If the people knew one
half of Ids infamy since be has been in
j the Senate not a county in the State
would elect Radical members to the
Oregon Legislature. They have all sold
themselves to Williams and Ilolladay.

J uitge Ilt'i-cl's Speech.
Judge Reed's speech last Thursday
evening was a masterly effort, and we
wish that every laborer in the State could
have heard him. The audience was very
good and the speech was received with
Judge Caples. of Portland, .poke at the
Court House in this city, in behalf of the
Radical party. The Judge started on the
glorious war and ended there. He
evidently felt that his cause was very
weak, and from the ridiculous compari
sons and declarations he made, we con
cluded that he was not particular wheth
er the audience believed anything he said
or not. Space will rot allow us to detail
his many erroneous assertions.

COURTESY OF BANCROFT LIBRARY,
"We take tne following items
from the Herald :
Capt. Besse's card is a carefully
worded document. It was evidently
written by a lawyer. "With a great
flourish of language it denies that
Capt. Besse made the statement
that Sam Poy had told him of the
contract between Ilolladay and
Wa Kee. It does not, however,
controvert the proposition that
Sam Poy did tell him of that con
tract. It carefully avoided any
denial of that, or of the fact, which
is probably known to Capt. Besse,
that there is an -understanding
that the Chinaman brought over
in his ship are to be employed, on
The Herman Doctor has arrived
with her cargo of Chinese. This
is a significant fact, which goes to
controvert Ben. Ilolladav's brag
gart proclamation to his employes.
Before lie can convince people
that he is not going to hire China
men to work on his railroad, he
must point out some other probable
purpose for which these successive
cargoes of them are being brought
into the State. As his railroad is
the only possible Avork upon which
such large numbers of Chinaman
can find ernplo3'ment in the State,
men will suspect that to be the
inducement which causes them to
be imported. They do not come
without a definite promise of some
kind of employment.
Ben. Ilolladay has taken the
field in person. Heretofore he has
been entrenched behind his dignity,
but of late the Democrats have
made it so warm that he has come
out with a printed article, and has
appeared on the stump before
his unruly men, who insist on their
right to vote as conscience dictates.
Ben's pledges to Williams will not
permit inactivity when points are
likely to be lost by such a course.
We will attend to his case before
the week is over, and will ventilate
This campaign, so far as this
matter of railroads is concerned,
has, in fact, narrowed down to
this: It is a mere contest between
the Democratic party on the one
hand, standing in its historic
position as an opponent of all
monopolies, and Ben Ilolladay on
other, aided by a faction of strikers
that us"d to bear the name of the
Republican party and claims it yet.
On which side do the voters of
Oregon wish to be counted? If
they go for Ilolladay and his
agents, they will virtually consent
to have but one railroad in the
State, with branches here and there.
But if they go for the Democratic
party, ther will vote for as many
competing lines of railway as the
country will bear.
