Dallas, Jan. 29th, 1870.
Trem every portion of the ; State
omes the glorious news of the certain
victory which awaits the Republican
party on the 0th of next June. The
dam d alio and cowardly sitbtcrfuges to
which the opposition press have resort
el to carry on the campaign, too clear,
ly indicate what the Democracy expcct
will be the fate of their candidates.
The honest and intelligent citizens of
Oregon will Jjust as surely put their
stamp of condemnation upon all such
acts as the day of election comes. The
masses are honest and do not endorse
- this whplesale attack upon the very
jbest citizens of the couojlry. The Re
publican candidates forf the "offices . of
the State are men of unimpcached and
' nn'mpeachable 'character, and will be
: elected; and when so elected will. do
their duty to all citizens irrespective of
Judge Wilson will represent the pco
pie of Oregon in Congress, where he
will have that influence in her behalf
.which his splendid abilities and the in
terests of the State, demand. Ho is a
good lawyer, gave the utmost and en
: tire satisfaction to the people of the
Fifth Judicial District as their Judge,
and will give equally as good satisfac
tion in the halls of Congress.
Gcn. Palmer will be our next Gover
nor, and none bettcrcould be selected

Coming to Oregon in an early day, he
was called upon to help carve out the
future greatness of our State, by, rug

' those "kid-gloved" nabobs who has
been afraid of toil. He has rolled up,
his gleeves and delved into the mighty
Vbrests, making gad havoc . with the
woodman's axe. j He has gone into the
h rrvest fields and bound up the rich
.; sheaves of grain, of which Oregon
--boasts so much. He has engaged in
all the industrial pursuits of the State
There is not art honorable vocation in

James iflkins, our next Secretary of
State, is a man in every respect fitted
for the position. Aa County Clerk of
Linn county, for four years, he gave
entire satisfaction to men of all parties. J
lie is also one of the people. lie has spectable citizens who are not Candida

is not ; that ought to bo enough to beat
him. Is there a "print" in Oregon
that don't consider it an outrage on the
craft to have a man crammed on them
who is not a practical printer ? Politi
cal parties ought to be taught a lesson,
and that is to respect the rights of the
craft. .They owe more to printers than
any other class of men. Printers, stand

West Side Railroad. While in
Portland, the first of the week, wo saw
a gentleman who is interested in the
Portland, Astoria and McMinnville
Railroad, who informed us that the
company had secured enough iron and
rolling stock to complete the road a
distance of forty miles.' This will bring
it up to the neighborhood of McMinn
vjlle. , It is not the r intention of the
company to stop at that town, but to
push the road forward as fast s. possi
ble. . It h idle to think for a moment
that the road will not be built further
than the point named in the bill grant
ing the subsidy. Many object because
the bill did not give aid for a road fur
ther south than McMinnville, but then
they do not consider that the Gdvern-
ment had any- land beyond that village
to give away, for the aid extended to
the road on the East Side of tha river
includes all the vacant land within thirty
ni!Jra flirt rnnrl n-i Aaa nA
that distance will go back into the
mountains ; fifteen miles west of this
place. But, notwithstanding the
Gtvernmcnt was unable to help the
enterprise in its southern extremity,
yet, by reason of the substantial sub-
I aidy extended to the northern end of
the road, the company will be able to
build the road through the whole
length of tho valley.
BSOrXt is said that the prico of sheep
is looking up since a certain individ-l
ual, who resides at Dixie, is about to)
removo to the upper country. Y
sheep raisers of east of the mountains
look ont for the Willamette Valley yar
mint. Ho has been scalped, but, unj
fortunately, escaped with his life."
.'We notice. that sorao of our cx
chanties, in aecrcditincr items to the
Republican, accredit to tho "Polk Co
Republican," instead of the Oreoo
Republican, the true name. We de
sire our friends to know that' our cir
culation is not confined alone to this
narrow 'confines of a county. v Wi
claim the State of .Oregon as bar the
atcr of action as much as Polk' county.

The candidates for Congress, Messr?.
Wilson and Slater, spoke here la? t
Tuesday. Owing to the press of woik
with tho farmers there was rather a
slim turn-out from tho country, yet
t.he Court House was very well filled,

Mr. Slater followed Judge Wilson,
and perhaps did as well as any one
could under the circumstances. Mr. S.
evidently felt that the responsibility of
packing the entire obnoxious portion
of his platform was upon his shoulders.

Slater quoten from a speech of Thad.

by that deceased statesman on a law
of Congress, cited by Judge Wilson,
which said law was' never introduced
into Congress till after j Stevens had
been dead more than six months. We

Four years ago the Republican press
of this State charged upon the Demo
cratic party that it was in favor of re
pudiation. ; In iheir'platform they de
nicd that tho imputation was true
Two yearg ago the same indictmcntj
wits': idrawn up but again4- they plead
not guilty. But this year the party, in
a State platform, has demanded "cqui
table adiustment." and in soveral coun-
ties have adopted out and out repudia-
solutions. Thus: is the predictions of,
Republicans made true.
IMUlcal Notes - i
A letter from Umatilla! dated May
5th, expresses the opinion that Eastern
Oregon will givo less than five hundred
majority for the Democratic State tick
et. Another authority sap, "not over
three hundred ' ;W e have sucli ad
vices as lead us to the conclusion that
Jackson county will not go more than
one hundred and fifty-' arid Lann not
over two hundred majority Democratic.
There is everything to encourage us in
the belief that, as compared with two
years ago the Democratic voto will be
relatively reduced greatiy in almost
every coun ty. To secure a complete
Republican triumph in Juno, it is only
necessary that Republicans everywhere
unite their efforts and work diligently
and persistently through the remainder
of tho campaign. :
There could scarcely be a more signifi
cant answer to those who advocate free
trade to bring down prices than the
memorial recently sent to Congress,
signed by over thirty thousaud railroad
officers, and praying for a specific duty
of two cents per pound an steel. These
gentlemen set forth that, under the
competition wih American works erect
ed within a few years past, foregin
steel-makers have reduced the price
from 8150 to less than 79 gold.
Could any argument be more conclu
sive. . j -
The Gazette, speaking of the history
of repudiation, says;
It is true enough that tho National
platforms of 1800-8 have declared
against repudiation, ns above set forth,
but the hour was not then ripe lor the
damning heresy. Policy and piausi
bility are the ruling sentiments of the
platforms, and the Democracy were
wise enough to understand that the
patriotic hosts, stilt warm with the an
gcr of battle, would be kindled into
fiery and fatal wrath by, the teach erous
proposition, come from what source it
might. Through all these parsing
ye rs. However, uie party nas oecn
courting infamy, and wailing the aus
picious mouicut when, ou bended knee
before the spectre of national dishonor,
its accursed affections might be avowed.
That moment had seemingly aVrivcd
when Munsren unmasked the corruption
of the Democratic heart soon to be
followed by the whining treachery of
the Albany Iago. It was thought that
the grip or hard necessity, and the
ceaseless irritation of the tax law were,
in the language of the Democratic
platform, a "burden too intolerable to
be borne. .
Some time since the Albany Demo
crat mado some fwivcru criticisms on the
Oregon Enterprise for advocating
repudiation. The En terprhe makes a
feeble reply, and introduces the emi
nent Democratic argument of green
backs for the soldier, and gold to" the
bondholder. - The Democrat disposes
of this by saying : : !
In answer to the jboyish blubber
about the wronged boldier, we say this :
Tho soldier knew that he was to get
only a certain stipend for his service
when he enlisted, and there is nothing
wrong in this it proves nothing. The
wail for the widow and orphan that
arises from the ympathetie editor of
the Enterprise is perhaps creditable to
his heart, but illy becomes the head of
a man who is the advocate of the most
stupendous robbery that ever was at
tempted to be pcrct rated in any age
or clime. Sighs, sobs and groans arc
formidable in the mouths of female val
etudinares, but simply ridiculous in the
mouths of able bodied men. We do
not believe that the honest and sensi
ble portion of the-.' community will
show by their votes, next June, that
they like such ."equitable adjustment,"
as is advocated be the Enterprise.
The repudiation organ of this city
denicsjajs the Oregonian, that it fa
vors repudiation, or j that its party is
committed to the doctrine. Rut Col.
Chapman, who is an older and a better
Democrat than any one connected with
that paper, says that it has "sown the
seeds of repudiation broadcast," and
that he has tried to "eradicate them
from the Democratic! mind;" but inti
mates that he '. has had poor success.
So this point is supported by the very
best of Democratic testimony.
