The future looks bright for there-

. As Republicans of Mississippi I that it does not add to his importance
we are compelled to withdraw
our state ticket. We knew that our
votes would be stolen and our voters
driven from the polls, but we' hoped
that in the larger towns and cities at
least the semblance of free speech
might still remain to us, but our can
didates are not safely allowed to dis
cuss or protest. We desired especially
to go before the whole people of the
state and challenge the Democrats to a
comparison of principles and record?.
When the armed revolution of 1875
wrested the state from us, Mississippi
was the only Southern state unbur
dened with a state debt She has a
Democratic one. Mississippi is gov
erned by a minority despotism, and
we appeal to our country for redress.
The constitution that we adopted is
the only one in the South so satisfac
tory now that it has not been changed.
Our laws stand substantially . un
changed . and unrepealed, but we
are Republicans and this is our
offense. For fourteen years, ever
since the infamous Mississippi plan
was sdopted our path has been mark
ed by the blood of our slain not
only the well-known leaders who
bravely died, but faithful followers
known only in the cabins of the lowly.
We refer not only to such well-known
slaughter as those of Kemper and
Copiah, Clinton and Carrolton,
Wakalak and Vicksburg, Yazoo city
and Le Flore, but nameless killings
as a maratime power. The allied na
tions of Europe control the Dardan
elles. and in every instance lie has
been balked of accomplishing his pur
pose. At the dose of the last
war with Turkey his victorious
armies was in f'lll march towards
Constantinople until the guns of the
British fleet were pointed towards Ins
soldiers and he called a halt. If it
had not been for the statesmanship of
lieaconsfield Russia to-day would
have had control of the narrow strait
between the Black and the Mediter
ranean seas, and would have dom
inated the commerce of southern
Europe. But the bull-dog tenacity of
the British premier stopped this game
of the wily despot, and ever since he
has looked jealously towards this out
let to the ocean. From the past his
tory of Russia for two hund
red years, it is reasonable to believe
that these Turkish barbarities are
manufactured by Russian diplomats
to pick a quarrel wiili Turkey to get
to the Mediterranean. The facts of this
matter are that the Sultan's govern
ment has been more liberal and lenient
towards Christians and unbelievers
in Mohammedonism than Russia.

From our territorial exchanges it
seems that every town in' Washington I

and we are sorry we cannot say the
same of the cities of Oregon. There
are four cities in Washington with

years ago, were only small towns,

The Democrats have had glory
enough in the resignation of Tanner
as Commissioner of Pensions, and now
see something delightful in the
wordy warfare between him and
Secretary Noble. Perhaps Cor
poral Tanner was too much influenced
in his official duties by friendliness
towards his old comrades, but this is
more easily excused than a pat) y to
wards them. He may have talked too
much; but he fought almost as hi

ence when foes from within and with
out were attempting to undermine our
free institutions. Corporal Tanner

some lapse of years before the negro
could take his place as an intelligent
factor in the body politic; but in the
interval he must be educated to the
importance of the right granted him,
and no sort of bull-dozing will ac
complish this object. Intelligence has
never been made a requirement of
citizenship, the only requisites be
ing race and pa riotism, and the
former was abolished by the amend
ments passed after the war. Full
privileges as citizens have been
granted our colored people, and there
is every reason that the law should be
enforced by the full power of the gov
ernment if necessary. It is a disgrace
to our free institutions and the chiv
alric spirit of the south that the
most cowardly and cruel means should
be used to destroy the Republican
vote in that portion of the country.
We are glad to notice that the leading
Democratic papers in some of the
southern states have boldly denounced
the methods in use, and there is hope
that in a few years public sentiment
will, demand equal protection for the
ballot to'all classes and races in every
state of the union.
Europe other nations will not sympa

Since, the rebel privateers drove our
commerce from the high seas the mer

bas not been very large. A good
portion of our products has been car
ried in foreign bottones, and the grain
fleets which leave our shores annually
have been principally composed of
English ships. It may be that with
the increase of diversified industries
it was found more advantageous
to sell our products at home than to
export them. But the policy of pro-

more apparent than in the four new
states which will soon be admitted
into the union. New Tork, with her
36 electoral votes, has always been

union, and during elections a common
saying is, "As goes New York so goes
the nation." But Mr. Frank Hiscock,
senator from New York, says this will
bi true no longer. The center of pop
ulation is moving west, and the day is
not far distant when the voice of Cali
fornia, Oregon, Washington and Idaho
will not be unheeded in the national
legislature. After the next census
the states which now have such a pre
ponderance ot representation will wit
ness others in the line of progress, and
whose votes in congress, if consoli
dated, will outnumber tbeirr.
"Westward the star of empire takes

be so during the next ten years.

of gold, silver and coal could be made
accessible to this city, and by the ex
ercise of proper business enterprise
they could be made a factor of de
velopment to this city. Appropos of
this subject, Mr. Crandall has just
returned from the Clackamas mines,
distant about seventy miles, and
brought with him some very
fine specimens. These contain good
indications, and it is very likely they
will assay well. However this may
be, it would be a good plan for our
business men to develope some of the
sources of mineral wealth which are
tributary to this city.
Senator Dolph is right when he says
the standard gauge theory for over

Dalles and Celilo is a "political hobby
of Gov. Pennoyer and ridden to

decided on a boat railway, .and to
spring a new scheme on them is only
to indefinitely postpone matters for the
relief of producers and shippers in the
Inland Empire. Every day boats which
have been for years in the trade of the
upper Columbia are used on the mid

that craft competent to overcome'
the rapids and shoals above Celilo can
not be used below The Dalles and the
Cascades is apparent to the most
casual observer.

Sax Fbascisco, Oct. 23 The steamer
Cosmopolis, which arrived in port to-day
from Uray s harbor, met with rough
weather on her way down. Captain Dett

the steamer's shaft was bent and three
blades ot her propeller were broken oiF
by beavv seas. She was also short of
coal, and had to beat her way dowa in
her disabled condition against a strong
head wind.
The steamer St. Paul, Captain Erskine,
thirteen days from Ounalaslta, arrived in

She reports having experienced strong

ten days with heavy rains. She left at

Her cargo consisted of nineteen hundred

His legs were split open and broken in
several places. Hips were knocked from
their sockets and his ribs broken. The
skull was mashed in and altogether the
remains presented a horrible sight. A
card in. his pocket read "Dick O'Mallcy."

When the first claim was presented to
the second auditor it was disallowed.

that officers were entitled under the law
to an allowance for longevity rations, and
the supreme court affirmed the decision.

allow the claim", as he is douotful

CnicAGO. Oct. 23. The Journal this
evening asserts that cither in State's At
torney Longnecker's opening speech in
tne iionin case to-morrow, or in the evi
dence to be introduced later, there will
be several surprises. The weaK point in
the case has always been thought to be
the inability of the state to show that Dr.
Cronin actually entered the Carlson cot
tage on the night rf the murder. The
Journal claims that the state's attorney
has two witnesses who saw Cronin driven
up to the cottage and watched him enter.
It is also said that evidence will be pro
duced to show that four men took part
in the murder, Coughlin, Coolcy, Bulk,
aud a man not yet arrested or indicted.
Sullivan, it is claimed, acted as sentry
outside, and Kunzc is said to be the man
who drove Coughlin to the cottage.
