Tlio nominations mndo last evening
hy tho Republican State Convention
prove that the Independent movement
lia done nrnHi good already, ar.d plac
ed tho old political organizations upon
i heir guard and forced thuni to lay
wide tricks and schemes, and their
most notorious perpetrators, to obey,
as well as politics permit, tho will of
iho people. Tho nominations we pub
lish to-day were made with a view to
nxccllenco in hopes to command suc
cess. For once tho rings stood and
looked on, hut they were present, nnd
we helievo they are yet alive and pow
erful. Tho Republican ticket lias good
iU.illlie.s and is composed of good aver
age men, and may bo considered a fair
offset for the Democratic nominations.
.Judge J. (.'. Tolnian, of Jackson coun
ty, nominee for Governor, is a farmer
and has been County Judge of that
county. It is said that he is also a
(i ranger, and ho is known as good a citi

of Stato, Is a resident of Maker county,

Itichard Williams, nominee for Con
gress, N a well-known lawyer of I'ort
laud, shrewd and able in the law, who
will make an active campaign. Hois
olfored as a Mciillco, of compromise, to

Tho earnest work commenced with

The Can.ni.nu Business. The bight of i(
a Salem Hoodlum's ambition is to get

his caudal extremity. This business W
b(ion reduced to a science by young Slej
lies, and tho doxterlty with which theaum
Is captured and " canned, ' Is marvelous
the "sojourner in our midst." We wob
mildly suggest to the lovora of this p!

here, Is tho part generally thrown oveibotr-.
at the fisheries.
