It is rather amusing to nolo the bicker

future for tho country ; on tho other sido
it passes in review tho most demoraliz

but are probably oven more virile; for
they do not hesitate to associate tho nalne

least command rcsiwct with till that is
politically vile. And right hero let mo
s.iy that this in a measure explains tho
lack of Influence, proportionate to their
circulation nnd prominence, possessed by
these solf-stylcd "molders of public
opinion." Tho averugo Ainericun citizen
and voter is not such u gullible loggerhoad
as these journals and pollticluus imagine.
no has scon his country grow and pros

and his patriotic heart swells with pride
as ho rotlects that tho small question of
which party Is in power can neither re
tard nor increase Its' sure development.
Know niz this, it is but natural that ho
should look with contemptuous indltlcr
enco on tho ranting of journalistic dema
gogues. And this In not only truo of the
larger Journals, hut also of their smaller
country brothren. They have not ono
te:'th tho influence they uro suppoHcd to
possess lu controlling tho sentiments,
thoughts, and ballots of voters. Thoy
might simply bo placed on a footing with
Individuals, with tho sumo freedom to
oxprcss their viows nnd opinions, but
also with tho sumo understanding that
others losldcfl themselves havo minds
und beliefs, which can only bo influenced
by good, sound facts and urgiiments.
Apropos of the foresolnir about (ho
coining Presidential contest, it Is apparent
that it lias its exact counterpart, on a
much smaller scale, in tho liolllng of
Umatilla county's political ot In this,
tho Par West. It Is very, very umusing
to notice tho dlllerenco oi opinion ho
tween Pendleton's two dully "molders, "
nooui tlio iiemocrutio county convention
und Its nominations. Thu East Oiikiio-
nian says, und most probably with per
fect truthfulness, that tho ticket put lu thu
field is strong und satisfactory, and that
tho convention was uninfluenced lu tho
loast by rings, cliques or combinations of
any kind. Thu Daily "Conundrum,"
being uopubiicau, oi course lias iniiureni
Ideas and convictions, and bemoans with
crocodllo tears the corruption manifest
in every uctlon oi tho convention, it de
plores in hypocritical sorrow tho fact(?)
that tho "court-houso cliquo" was tho
lover that moved with ono accord tho
Democratic deleuates. and refers lu un
Insinuating way to a vague and shadowy
muchlno "boss," who rewarded or in
treated his followers us ho saw fit. It
feelingly laments tho "slaughter" of the
innocent John A., whom it regards us the
"licst man" in tho Democratic party for
tho osltioii of Representative, und
claims that ho fell u martyred sacriflco to
tho cruel mandate of tho "boss," who
was of courso advancing his own und the
"ling'n" rolflsh interests. How won
drous pitiful is this sud story I I'ut thu
"I. ittlo Conundrum" cannot douche thu
voters of old Umatilla, In its dibits ' '
effect it breach lu thu Democratic ranks
through which tho ltepubllcuus may rush
und ucniovo a victory, i ho result ol its
puny uttompts will lsi brotmiit homo io it
in u forcible and surprising way during
tho coming Juno election.
Tho Kast Oiikoonian has u happy wuy
of expressing itself. Its comments on
tho good and had oliits (principally
good, of courso) of tho Democratic ticket,
woro very interesting and free from prej
udice. I havo only timo to refer to one,
which I regard us u triumphal combina
tion of brevity und wit: After pnilslng
the prosont management of tho sheriff's
office, und commending tho integrity und
ability of "Honest John," it said ho hud
only ouo fault that "ho sometimes
tulked too much, whon silence would lie
far more dignified and iireferublo." Tho
nimble jon of "Mud Crook" could not
write u Iwttor biography of John M.
llentloy in a volume. It is to bo ho)od
hs will tako tho hint, und when his
tongue uttompts to run uwuy with his
vocabulary and his reason, bridle it with
thoughts of that old und reliable truism,

Tho Salem Videtlo has tho following:
It may bo well ut this time to caution
the Multnotmih delegation to the State
Democratic convention, ami to suggent to
tho convention that it will be folly to
nominate utiy one from Multnomah
county who has a well-defined suspicion .
over htm of always telling out thu Dem
ocratic party to tho Hepubliciins, or who
has been guilty of knifing the party to
servo personal ends. A stop might as
well bo put to this sort of treachery first
The delegates from tho valioy counties

The" Democratic party in Multnomah
county has been cursed long enough by
that class of tclf-scoking H)Hticiaus, and
it Is not going to Pendleton in thu inter
est of utiy such ono, but it is going there
to fight that clement lu tlio party, and to
help nominate u strong, clean, acceptable
ticket for the whole State. Mult.iumuli
county Democrats are not suriirlned that
tho Videttu misunderstands tlio position
of tlio .Multnomah delegation.
Tlio rumor has ixsen Industriously cir
culated through tho length and breadth
of tho State, that thu aspirant for tho con-
grcssiunul nomination from .Multnomah
county is tho strougcht man to put up
against tho Republican candidate, pro-
sumaiiiv bocatiso ho can trade oil in re
turn tlio Democratic county ticket with
his bosom friend, tho chairman of tho
Republican Statu committee. It is hardly
necessary to say that tho Multnomah
county delegates to 1'ondlotoii uro not
going to bo it party to this thing,
flio fear h that tho valley delegates may
bo misled by tho also impression
created there by absuid rumors of the
strength of the Multnomah aspirant for
congressional nomination ut Pendleton
next Tuesday, und lest they be. so do
colved It Is most opportune now to cau
tion them that thoy must not by their
votes or usslsttiucu help to lniiose'SUch it
man on the party. IaiI thorn test as
sured that the Multnomah delegation Is
going to Pendleton intent on putting up a
ticket that will not onlv kiiIIhIV tbe rxt
of tho Stuto, hut will bo nlso strong
enough to curry tho Stuto without u
dicker or trade. A Dkmociiat.
