Since the Republican party came
into power generally throughout the
Uuited States, a eontinuaNmuxmur of
discontent has been heard from Demo
eratjc lips about the extravagant ex
penditures of the Republican party,
jand where the Democrats have met
.with any success 'whatever, except
through prejudice towards tho negro,
it has been on the assurance of an eco
nomical atlministratson of affairs.
jrera ember how the membcrsVf
thc last Oregon Legislature went up v
fthe Capital, with protestations of econ
omy yet warm on their Hps, and enter
te injto schemes for enriching their
party friends, and how they frittered
.away the time given them by the peo
ple for party legislation to the neglect
of public business of a necessary na
Over the whole land is thjs econom
ical cry raised'et how different the
. practice. Inew York the people are

.Nearer home the evil of JDcmocratic
y' extravagance is even more astonishing.
Jn California everything is governed
y Democrats, anthe legislative appro
priations from the State Treasury has
become so lavish that the people are
.greatly alarmed at the prospect, and
are sending petitions, signed by thou
ai(jls, demanding the; legislative body
Jo desist from their work of appropiU
aiing nioney. A general feeling of in
security in that State prevails, and
measures for; massing the citizens for
self-protection are being seriously con
ideref . It is well for the voters to consider
he acta of the Democratic leaders
'rather than their words, before they
give them their suffrages. The Re
publican party not only makes pledges
gf an honest and economical appropri
ation of public money, but makes good
' ts obligations.
I pEMCRATic County Convention.
Tho Democrats have held their Con
: yention and honored a company of men
jrith nominations. We have nothing
at present to say of the candidates per
sonally, save that their political graves
are now dug and the funeral appointed
for the Gth of June.
The Convention passed a set of res
olutions, but we have been wholly un
able to obtain a copy of thera, although
diligent inquiries have been instituted,
Whence we conclude the Convention , is
jsither ashamed of what it did, or Is
afraid to have their doings published.
We have heard, however, that one
jesoluiion opposed tho enforcement of
"the Fifteenth Amendment, and pledged
jthe members of the Convention to im
pede the execution of that law by all
honorable and peaceable means, or at
tho point of the bayonet, if necessary,
by which we take it that the Peace
Democracy of the North are not yet
patisfied. jlut we always consider such
resolutions are passed more for the ef
fect than as words of meaning.
Camp Lyon has been delivered by
the military into , tho hands of the pur
chasers, W est & Westgate. The pres

Murder Will Out.
The Oregon City Enterprise and the
Portland Herald are in a crave diffii-
culty. The Herald recommends the
forming of one great Vigilance Com
mittee to prevent Republican imported
votejs from exercising their suffrage
rights on election day; but, unfortu
nately .for this scheme, no Republican
importations can be found, and the En
terprise man is in trouble because his
nice littlescheme of importation hasbeeu
discovered. McKinney, as agent, took
twenty five men into Clackamas coun
ty, and was playing the thing low down
until two of the members, more honest
thanjjthe leaders, by their sworn affi
davit, divulged the whole thing. BIc-
Kinney, smarting under the lashes of J
this exposure, now assails thfi railroad
contractors because they employ white
labor instead of Chinamen.
The Democrat importers in Yamhill
county are brave about their business,
and make no effort to conceal the fact
that they are corruptly bringing meft
into that county for the sake of voting
them. They even gobble up steamer
passengers; who are direct from Cali
fornia. How long will the honest portion of
the Democratic party submit to bj led
by such corrupt men ?
Democratic Stale Ticket.
The Democratic State Convention,
at Albany, nomrf ated L. F.. G rover, of
Salem, for Governor, S. F. Chadwick,
of Douglas county, for Secretary of
State, L. Flieschner, of Portland, for
Stato Treasurer, T. J. Patterson, of
Portland, for State Printer, J. II.
Slater, of Union county, for Congress,
1$. H. Bonham, of Marion county, for
udc of the Third Judicial District,
and N.-L. Butler for District Attorney
for the Third Judicial District.
Bv this ticket it will be seen that
the people on the West Side may just
as well give up all hope for Govern
ment aid to a railroad, unless they
unanimously support the Republican
nominees whoever they may be.
The Democrats may consider that
they have a strong ticket, yet he who
heads it belongs to a manufacturing
corporation that won't employ Chinese
before election, but will cut the pay
of white laborers down to China wages;
but then the platform may heal all the
defects in men.
Of course, G rover docs not want
Republican votes, for he it was that, in
a Senatorial contest not many years
since, said that if he could be elected
to the Senate only by Republican
votes he did want to go. The ticket is
one that we think we can easily defeat-
at the June election.
Since writing the above we received
both the State and county platforms,
and, although we have no time to give
them this week, we can assure our
readers that they are characteristic of
the Democratic party, and can be made
to mean anything. j
To-day the Republican County Con
vention will meet to send delegates to
the Republican State nominating Con
vention, to be held in the city of Port
land, beginning on Thursday the 7th
of April. It should be the business of
the Convention to select such men as
will reflect the will of the people, and
will be certain to attend the State Con
vention in person. Again every dele
gate to this County Convention should
return home considering himself
oommitteejof one in his precinct, for
the purpose of bringing out every Re
publican voter to the next primary, and
see that none but jgood men, and true,
be sent to the County nominating Con
vention. We want that convention to
be made up of good men, who wil-
scrutinize every man's fitness for office,
and see that the will of tlie people is
respected. We don't want any such
farces in our nominating convention as
was displayed here last Saturday by
some of our political opponents. Kvcry
man despises a packed convention, and
we must steer clear of such corrupt
things. And, besides, the individuals
of a party are not bound by the doings
of a body that procures the nomination
of favorites through fraud.
It is said tfrat the number of cattle
in Texas has quadrupled within ten
j years, or smco too war.
W hy Is It f
Some person, unknown to us, writ
ing from Dallas to the Salem Press,
last week, takes issue with us for what
we said about the importation of vot-
a. r : . "I;
ers. iow, we nave nothing to sav
further on that subject, save to reassert
the position before taken, and if Dem
ocrats do not desire to come in and help
us put down this fraud upon the resi
dents of this county, but still, as in
times past, hold that it is right to im
port for insuring success, wo will have
to fight the wrong alone.
We only further give space for the
reply of the printers who "were person
ally assaulted by the correspondent.
Salem, March 21, 1870.
Ed. Republican: In the last is
sue of the Democratic Press appears a
communication from Dallas, over the
classic non de plume of "Junius."; The
subject matter of tho communication
in question; is principally devoted to a
charge against the Republican party of
Polk, importing voters. With this
charge I have nothing to do, and would
have paid no attention to the article
did not Mr. Rogers' and my own name
appear ?n connection with the charge.
"Why," asks the enraged writer, 'is
it that Mr. Rogers quit the Statesman
office to come here, and Mr. Davis, a
Democratic printer, put in his place V
For the time I will lay aside my Cel
tic personality and assume a Yankee
"make-up," that I may4e able to an
swer "Junius'" charge by propounding
a few whys myself, and thus enlighten
"Junius' " thick cranium on a subject
he feigns to be so ignorant of. Why
was it that "a Democratic printer" run
the Polk CtAtnty Times three weeks
after itsj proprietor had "vamoosed," on
the fair promises of Democratic aspir
ants for office, that the Democracy of
Polk would sustain the paper, and that
the "Democratic printer" would be
retained that this was not done ? W hy
was it that, at a secret meeting held in
Mr. L ' a store by the leading De
mocracy of Polk some tweuty in num
ber on the night of Feb. 19th the
"Democratic printer" was importuned
to get out a few more issues of the
Times on the same terms as th, three
preceding ones -fair promises? And
why was it he didn't do it? iWhy
was it that an inducement of three
month's work was offered the aforesaid
"Democratic printer" if he would re
main, whether the office was sold or
not? Whv was ft tho "bemocratic
printer" didn't accept so liberal an of
for ? Why was it that when the "Dem
cratic printer" mildly suggested to the
the meeting that he would like to sec
who was the responsible mac, no one
said I ? Why was it that when the
"Democratic printer" saw the patriotic
ardor and enthusiasm of leading Dem
ocrats, and he thought it a good time
to strike for his lack pay, that not a
jingle came from the hat that was pass
ed round ? Why was it 1 Whyt
I have a few other more pertinent
whys left, andfif "Junius" again dares
impugn my motives, or to insinuate
that Mf. Rogers and myself are the
tools of! any party, I will out-on-him,
and give the citizens of Dallas the
rarest bit of (true) gossip they have
had for many a day. Be careful, "Ju
nius," how you tread on the corns of
A Democratic Printer.
"Junius' wishes to know "why
came here," which inquiry I answer as
follows : capo here to take charge
of the mcchauical department of Til E
As to "why the 'Democratic printer'
was put in my place," I answer : Mr.
D having applied to me, as one
of the "craft," for my situation, I used
my influence to procure it for him.
Politics are not recognized by the
"craft" in such cases. I
