JOHN O. SIIELTOJf, ,
, In presenting the biographical sketch
of a noted individual in this county,
Wf, I give, aa; the first chapter, the fol
lowing frpra tho Weekly Domooratic
Press of the 21st inst :
We have a few men in this county,
formerly Democrats, who are engaged
in the exportation business. J. O. SheU
ton, the , go-between f-r your gentle
Jasper, appears to bo a;kind ol loader.
What adornment on the Godandmor"
r ali'y party', when we see it engaged in
such dirtybusioes as this. 1 To see it
employ such a simple creature as Shol-tonf-
proves conclusively that "what it
lacks, in knavery it makes up in fool.
This creature Shelton, some time ago,
Was a leader in a Good Templar lodge,
upending a portion of his time in a gro
cery y between these two he vibrated.
While, under, the influence of one, ho
made ! an issault on a saloon keeper,
and when governed by the other, he
courtdd the parsons daughter. Failing
to kill his man, and blast the prospects
of the fairi Jf. 0. pegged out and, for
a time, gave over the pusujt of hapra
ness, in the $hape of a wife, and spent
his time fighting hid shadow on the
wall. , With ;an empty pocket and a
broken heart, out ot love, out of cash,
he sucked tlie last dropiofi ten cent
worth of whisky and left ; After the
passage of infamous Fifteenth Amend
ment, Sheltou turned up agaia in pur
suit of a wife In his eye; tho 4uskv
maid ; of the forest became lovely and
he looked upon B. T. Whitson to see
what could be done in his behalf.
Whitson informed him that of that
kind, he had hardly enough . to supply
local demands and referred him to la
folic tt. 5 J. Os "prospects are lovely
and in consideration of his labors, in
behalf of the glorious Union, soon af
ter the, Ides of June, he is to lead to
Hymen's bloshing altar one of the fair
est of all the fair daughters, rolling in
pleasure,' lice and dirt, on' the banks of
the cvermurmunnjr lamhill. - site is
the chosen veasel, a kind of swivel, on
which to turn the Union of the races,
in . the bosom of domcstio bliss. At
present he is engaged by the Abolition
partf to do its dirty work j and illus
trate the term- "the Christianity and
Spirit of the age." ... We will write no
more on this point, as tho upright and
virtuous Gault promises to expose all
rascals engaged in trying to defeat the
wish of the people. AH we have to
sy is, if Gault fails in exposing these
rascals, Sheltan, Matheny and othors
he is as bad if not worse than the mean
est man in his party. Come, Gault, no
craw-fishing; give these fellows thun
der, expose them ox your honesty is
damned. ... . ... . ,. ..:. ....
$io, wo won't fail nor craw fish but
proceed at onco to give a full history of
a man y ho proved himself so political
ly ishonet asi the subject of this bi
ographjr, and epecially as we have been,
able to learn more facta than were at
the command of the writer abjove quo
ted, . .r,w..
n order to make it more correct and
yeliWe, we .rust gO ibacH toi 18Q4,
when Shelton sold himself to the Dm
ocrats and exposed the Unioa League.
About six months after that the Repuh
lieans bought itn, when he exposed
the Knights of the Golden Circle by
furnishing, the alphabet of the organi
'atioi Folr 1t1eJrtoct' of aoouVa year
from this tirao, h(0 tooted th,e spy ! of
the; Government, and. was in the,' habit
of m'ceting two prominent RepublicAos
in .. the 'fire-proof vault in the Court
House, in thia place, and detailing; to
them ajVtha .was, transacted by th'e or
gaoijatio About the, cjfpirtion oft this time he
found, it necessary .to emigrate to Oali
(vrnhf because the victims oi his treaeb
ery were about to prepare a corpse for
a special funeral, r. -r-y-r
Recently, he returned frora; Califor
nia, saying that hef had voted for Grant;
that he ras a Republican and shouU
vote 'the Republican ticket and pro
duced a letter, purporting to bo from a
citizen of California, corroborating this
statement. He represented that he
was strapped and wanted to stay in the
county, until i after the electioa and
wanted to borrow" some money to get
himself something to cat. Whereupon
Mr. Boone loaned him some. .
Since then, that is to say, about a
week ago, the Democrats bought him,
and he is now very prominent in the
canvass and is except Mr. Ilayden
tho mast talkative, man for Democratic
principles, now in the. county, :; Apart
from his oratorical powers he has shown
a remarkable fitness for, making, aflSda-
vits, exhibiting his own Worthlessncss
and want of honor. Moro' than that,
he, by his sworn scatemcot, gives it out
that the Republicans can "' buy ; hira
again before oleotion, if thoy desiro so

received and prominence given him, he

This chapter will.be filled out by the
Salem Press, when the subject of this
sketoh is bought by the Republicans
ABoeIatlon of Gentlemen
Called) Have Lied Again.
In the Daily Press of the 23d, it
is stated that' the resolutions of the
Union Republican Convention, at Dal
las, declared in favor of a white man's
governmcnt.1 f This 'is another Iving
tale of the "gentlemen (so-called);"
but we aro not surpr)scd aa this h in
perfect consonance and .keeping with
theirjijiate proclivities. They also say
that Congress' and f the Fifteenth
Amendment declare in favor of unirer-
sal suffrage. This is also, fle and in
harmony with the. habits of the so
called gentlemen. The 'troth! i. there
is no ioconsutency fo be found in the
platform of our: party in this county,
but the resolutions express the honest
sentiments of our party. Tho first w
simply the formal part, endorsing the
State "platform. This is done by all
Covnty Conventions in both parties,
whether they endorse it in every par
ticular or not How is it about the 8th
resolution ? Who's lied about that ?
and who has acted the hypocritl
The other three resolutions are the
pet measures of the party in Polk
county, and stand outside and do not
clash with our State platform. The
first declares in favor of economy in
the administration of all our political
affairs, tho good old denioeratio doc
trine. The second declares hat we are
opposed to so patching up our Consti
tu tion that the people of this State
will be financially ruined by bankrupt
cy. W hat have you to ay against
that, you lying clan ? And the third
declares that, while we cheerfully ac
quiesce in the laws oi the land, we are
opposed to any further extension of the
elective franorrise to any save the white
races. What is there here of which
you so mournfully complain ? Do you
And fault with us becanse ' we da not
declare- ourselves outlaws as you did in
1801, or is it because wo are opposed
to any further i cxtensioa of the ballot
to any except white persons,1 the very
principle yoursay- is correct fi3"Coe
out and explain, you sneaking falsifiers.
The truth is, i n' th is respect, we only
speak our honest sentiments as a party.
We were, opposed to extending the bal
lot to other races of men at all, but the
majority has decided against Jus and
'ike good and 'law-abiding citizens, we
are willing to submit aud oboy&th?
and now say in i our rcsolutioas like
honest men that we are opposed to any
further extension in that directiopi'and

Preaching and Practising.
Mr. Editor : While Jn my medi-.
tations to-day, a spirit of wonder .came
into ray mind,- and I was led to wonder
if you ever heard a Democratic Divine
preach, with all the eloquence the sub
ject should demand, that ffighteovsness,
Temperanee and ; Tru) Justice might
prevail in the land, then fall oohis
knees and pray,' with all the vehemence
he could command, that such a state of
things might be brought about here in
I wonder if you ever knew this same
class of Divines accept calls to deliver
temperance lectures, extoll the cause,
urge the Lodges to exert all ttfeir influ
ence in behalf of so worthy a . cause.
I wonder again, if you ever went to the
polls on Monday morning, when their
warm, fervent prayer had scarcely got
cold since the preceding Sabbath, and
deposit a ticket for men to fill high
and responsible positions who arc con
stantly propagating the vices the Di
vine so loudly prayed to rid tho coun
try of. ;
I wonder what you will think of the
following transaction : Mr. S. was
golhg to move to Southern Oregon j he
had a note on Brother B. for 100, due
one year from date wl'h ten per cent,
interest.- Mr. S goes to Mr. W.; says
he , Is going to leave and roust have
money I wijh to sell the note on B.
Says Mr. W. what will you take?
fc?ays S: I will take its face. Cant give
it; B. may fall and a great many ex
cuscs are made, and finally offers S50
S. reluctantly accepts, saying he . has
tried variously to do better. The year
volls round i Mr. W. cala rri Bro. B.
forhis money Says Bro. B., I aai in
favor of 1 equitabl adjustmtnt;. you only
paid 550 for the note, that amount I
will pay you, interest on the sirrie j if
you can get any more by law, go in.
Mr. W., knowing he is at the end of the
rope, takes 855. ?
The Rev. Divine,; hearing of the
transaction, calls a meeting of a num-
Ver of, the old, long-flietd brethren to
deal with Bro. B., who tries to defend
his case by the principle equitnMe, f$c.
but the vote is taken and Bro. B. slides
overboard. The Rev. Divine gets on
his knees and prays again, loud and
long, in favor of rightemtnts, temper
anc and true justice, warning Bro B.
of the consequences of such conduct;
Monday, election day, Divine on hand
in big glce-votes for .the above de
scribed candidate, standing on repudia
tion , or equitable adjustment, just as
poor Bra B. did a lew days before.
(Parsons, contrast the abovo transac
tion with that of the Government with
the bondholders.) ' ;
J Do you wonder if there are infidels
all . around these same Divines f and
the number increasing ? I say let them
traverse land and ?ea, let' them go up
to their great ; convocations and 'pray,
and groan and groan, and pray, to sake
one convert, but . sad it is, when they
have made him he is more the child of
hell than kiore, with ' suoh surround.
