out, and on what account paid out:
The semi-annual report of the fi
nancial condition of Union county ap
pears in this issue. It chould be care
fully scrutinized by all tax-payers.
Spokane Kails has pledged $17a,000
to a railroad company to come in there
and partake ofi bountiful repast and
thenceforth and forever become a full
fledged citizen of that place, having
fullgcorpornlion honors, with tho ad
vantages of slicing and being sued, if
the advantages of the country, and
the usual whims of ordinary mankind
should deem it advantageous to their
interests. That's the kind of towns
Oregon should have.
That was a very handsome compli
ment paid by the Republican conven
tion to County Treasurer K. C. JJrain
ard, in refraining from placing any
one in nomination to oppose him,
Although Mr. Uraiuard has made a
good treasurer, and the compliment
was deserved, such acts tend to cre
ate a sentiment of brotherly good will
between the two purlieu, which can
but have a tendency to make tho cam
paign more pleasant.
liecause Tin: Scoi'T commended tho
Democratic convention for utterly Ig
iioringanythliig that would lead to lo-
propriety of the Republican conven-
lion acting in a similar maimer, the j
Gazette sees lit, to misrepresent our
position, and accuses us of attempting
to create discord in the Republican i
party. As the Republican convention i
did about as Tin: Scout suggested, ' never issueil such an excellent number
A number of years ago when the
great Henry Villain" was building the
Northern Pacific railroad, the citizens
of the Northwest, and especially those
i of Portland, were very loud it their
j laudations of Mr. Villard, as at that
j time it was believed that Portland was
his objective point. Much surprise
; and dissatisfaction were expressed
j when he was suddenly let out of the
' control of that company. JJiit Ileuiy
; Villard was not a man to bo shoved
1 out in the cold and iiictly accept the
situation. He longed for the control
of his favorite road and left nothing
undone to place himself again in that
position, ami at the annual election uf
that companv's directors, a bomb cx-
plodcd in camp, and when the debris
was cleared away it was found that
; the great schemer was there with
' Riillicient stock in his hands to gain
i his long desired ends. lie was hap
py again, and so were the citizens of
Poriland, and (hey lost no time in
J dolling their hats to their old lricud.
i ISut railroadmagnatcs, like the heath
en Chinee, "for tricks that are vain
; are peculiar,' ' and the recent findings
of Portland's committee before the
j joint lease coinmitteo in New York,
are, that Henry Villard is favoring the
I joint lease measure which the Metrop
I olis considers is directly inimical to
hei interest. "Whether it is or not,
makes but little difference to Villard
1 if his company can reap a richer liur
, vest of the ''(Jolden ficeee" by joiu
ing the lease, lie is there for the
' money there is in it, and it makes no
I difference to him whether Portland
! lives or dies so long as. his company is
making more money out of the joint.

OX WHAT ACCOt'NT
or as any fair minded person could
ask, it would appear that the only
"discord" that, has been created is
in the mind of the editor of that paper.
An unusual number of new subscri- i
hers have been nddedjto our list this i
week. Tho growth of Tin: Scout in .
this direction during the last, two years
has been almost phenomenal. The 1
number of its subscribers will reach
at least 1,300 a list which wo think
few papers in the State can boast of,
(bough published in towns many times '
larger than Union. This evidence of
popular favor wo art proud of, for it. 1
shows that our work has not been mi- ,
appreciated, and that tho course we I
have adopted as an Independent jour- !
nalist to freely express our opinions
on all matters pertaining to the wel
fare of tl.o country, iiutraumiclcd by
fealty to any party or sect, and accord
to thoso opposed to us consideration
and courtesy, is the correct one to
A full account, of tho proceedings of
llio Republican convention which' met
in this city last Saturday will bo found
elsewhere in this issue. Tin: Scotrr
has constantly urged, during the past
fow months, upon tho members ot
both parties in this county the neces
sity of attending the primary elections
and sending delegates to the county
conventions that were fair, honest and
candid men. who would use their best
judgement in selecting (heir nominees
for olllt'o during the ensuing term.
Wo believe our elfoi Is have not been
barren of good results. The little co
terie of schemers who would like
nothing better than lo see (he county
involved In a war on local ipiestlous,
havo been (juicily set down upon in a
manlier that will probably be benefi
cial to them in the future, and teach
(hum (hat open honesty is yet supreme
in (his county, Last week we hesita
ted not to commend the democracy of
Union county, in convention assem
bled, for their wise and Judicious ac
tions, To-day wo as heartily com
mend the actions of tbr republicans,
Tho convention last. Saturday, so far
as wo could sco, was characterized by
the utmost fnirnoxs, and a desiro on
the part of the great majority of dele
gatus to do tho best they could for tho
county At largo. If they erred in
making any tif tho nominations, wo
bolievo U win an error In judgement
alone. Tho selection of the legislative
portion of (ho ticket will no doubt
convince tho people of tho county, as
it lias us, that local dissentions are
not to outer into this er.uipalgn. The
selection of n senator, which has not
been made at this writing, may some
what alter the aspect or tilings, but
we think that (ho sentiment of (ho par- 1
ty at huge, and tho will of (ho conven- J
lion as apparent by its nominations, '

The First Sign
Ot failing haaltli, whothor in tho form of
Night Swoats and Nervousness, or in a
80H80 of Gonornl Weariness and Loss of
Appotlto, should suggest tho uso of
Ayer'a Surwii;iriln. This preparation
is most effective- for giving toao and
strength to tho enfeebled system, pro
moting tho digestion and assimilation of
food,. restoring tho nervous forces to
their normal condition, nnd for purify
ing, enriching, and vitalizing tho blood.
Ten years ago my health began to fall.
I was troubled with n distressing Cough,
NightiSwents, Weakness, and Norvous
iioss. 1 tried various remedies pre
scribed by different physicians, but
became so weak that I could not go up
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friends recommended mo to try Ayer'a
Sarsaparilla, which I did, nnd 1 am now
as healthy and strong as over. Mrs.
K. L. Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
1 have used Ayor'n Sarsanarllla. In my
family, for Scrofula, and know, it it is
taken faithfully, Hint it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I have
also prescribed it as a tonic, as woll ns an
alterative, and must say that I honestly
believe it to be the best blood mcdichio
evereouioundcd, W. 1 Fowler, M. D.,
I). D. 8., Ureenvllle.Tenn.
It would bo impossible for mo to de
scribe what 1 Mtuered from Indigestion
and Headache up to the time 1 began
taking Ayer's Snrsnpnrillo. I was under
tho care of various physicians, and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsnpnriila
for a short time, my hcadauho disap
peared, and my stomach jierfonned its
duties morn perfectly. To-duy my
health Is completely restored. Mary
Hurley, Springfield, Mans.
I have been greatly benefited by tho
prompt use of Ayorft Sarsaiwrilla. it
tones and invigorates the system, regu
lates tho action of tho digestive nnd
iitshnltntlvo organs, and vltnllaos tho
Mood. It is, without doubt, tho most
reliable blood purifier yet discovered.
