. Tsh conduct of-the Democratic party on
Saturday night baa been tbe general topic
since. Every honest man, Union and Demo
crat, acknowledge that the, instigators of that
Insulting conduct who. were, np.less than the
candidates of the Democratic ticket are. not
worthy of any fn,vors at the ba,nds or tbe re
spectable raters of tbis town.. '
Tbe Democracy of tbe Dalles have made a
riicVrocord for themselves iy their conduct
on last Saturday, night. The,. Oregon Steam
Navigation Company is also, made a party to
the insult given to the city aniitbo Governor
of this State,. An apology Is due both from
the citizens of tbis town and from the 0, S.
N. Company ta Governor Gibbs for the insult.
ine and unmanly conduct of these would-be
rioters, andwe have no doubt but that If, will
be made. 1 '
'Hx-Gov. Welles addressed tbo would-be
rioters laBt evening at tbe Democratic Club
Room. Tbe Governor's reason for the late
civil war Is on a different tack from that of
the- leaders of the party hore;. lie says that
" the cjergy of New England, are responsible
for the late war." Dow do our church-going
"men like that.? The clergy is responsible!

THE GRAND UNION RALLY SATUR
The largest and most enthusiasts Union
meeting ever held in. Wasco county was that
of Saturday night on tho corner of Main and
Washington streets. The Mechanics' Brass
Band, from Portland, headed a procession
previous to the speaking, and marched
through some of the streets. About 8 o'clock
Gov. Gibbs took the stand, and for an hour
and a half kept bis hearers, as it were, spell
bound. He reviewed tbe history of the pres
ent Democratic party j -showed clcaily that
they were leagued with traitors during tbe
rebellion ; that on every occasion where men
and money were needed to carry on the war,
that tho Democratic members of Congress
voted against all measures tending in that
direction. lie showed that the present lead
ers of the Democratic party aro members of
a treasonable organization, that was ready
to resist tbe Government in raising troops in
tbis State. He proved that the charge of
squandering the Slate's funds was false, by
tbe report of Lano, now candidate for Sec
retary of State, to tho Legislature, last fall.
We have not space to follow tho Governor
through his speech. Suffice it to say that it
was the ablest, most logical, and bad a moro
telling effect upon the enemy, than any we
have heard during the canvass. And here
we might mention one of the scurril
ous tricks that the Democracy resort to
during, the canvass. After Governor Weller
had finished bis speech tbe Democratic
party mounted on railroad cars, which
the Oregon Steam Navigation Company fur
nished them, and accompanied with a band,
went up the railroad track, and when in front
of Gov. Gibh's stand, stopped and did all
they could to interrupt the Union meeting.
Tbe same Insultwas aain repeated while Col
Hawkins was speaking. These insults, not
only to- the Union men of tbe Dalles, but to
tbe Executive of the Slate of Oregon, were
not resented, for tbe reason that it is better
that the people Bbould see of what material
a party is composed that will resort to such
low, scurrilous and unmanly conduct to dis
turb a Union.meeting,.atd probably tbe peace
of tbe city. We are more than astonished
that the Oregon Sienru Navigation Company
would lend itself to this contemptible conduct
to insult not only tbe people of tbis town but
the people of Oregon represented ia their
Col. Hawkins was then introduced, the
band playing a national air. He defcr-ded
himself against a charge of cowardice that
tbe opposition worked up. He never belonged
to the Seventh Tennessee Regiment; his was
the Second East Tennessee Cavalry. ' Tbis bo
had. explained to Judge Humason, and he bad
expected that the Judge would do the speaker
justice in connection with it, Not having
done so, Col. Hawkins sailed into Judge
Humason rough Bbnd. Tbe speech was a
masterly one and reflects credit on tbe speak
er... That old battle flug was exhibited and
reference to it drew forth cheer after cheer
from the audionce. Cot,. Hawkins has done
nobly' in this canvass, and especially In this
county. May tbe Union of the States and the.
great Union party of the country always have
such able defenders as Col. Hawkins.
After, tho close of the speech a procession
was formed of TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY
.Union men, with torches and candles, and
beaded by the brass hand, marched through
the streets of the city. It was a glorious tri
umph, and one that made the opposition hunt
their boles.1' On the corner of- Third and
Washington streets, as the procession was
moving along tbe street; a group of ladies
stood'on tbe corner and sung patriotic songs.
Tbe procession bolted, and at tbe close of the
singing, three rousing cheers were given for
the ladies, and three more for tho Union
The procession then marched to the corner of
Main and WasbintOn streets. and were dis
missed. ; ' ,'
Let tho Union men of tbe Dalles turn out
to-day, and in solid ranks march to the polls
and there yoto the whole ticket. Tell those
men who disturbed your meeting, and who
would disturb the public peace that tbey are
unworthy to govern the people of this county
Tell them that their loud c ics of freedom of
speech, .like all other professions, are false,
and voiuruive tho proof in their conduct on
Saturday, night. They, are not deserving of
your confidence ana shoull not have it..
