Tho Gazette is only making votes for

on that Antolopo precinct episode
There- to nothing in it, as everybody

nothing but Mich a feeble, charge, as
that to bring against Mr. Hutl'man it
is in a sail strait to bo sure.
A call has been made for tho Dcin
ocinlio County Convention of llaker

From what wo can loam, Hindmnn is

Just why the republicans so strenu

J. II. Ihiloy, democratic candidate
for joint fonator, has invited his oppo
nent, A. It. Mattoon, to make a joint 1
canvass of Umatilla county. We un
derstand that Mattoon declines, on the
ground that he don't know much about
the political situation, and says that if
Haley wants to discuss tho relative
merits of Stavor it Walker's farm im
plements w'ith those put up by other
firms, ho will "go him a round."
Mattoon is no Moses. Mattoon knows

knows enough to let Kaley alone.
Mr. J. 1). Guild, republican candi
date for assessor, called on us this
week. Ho has had the misfortune to
lose one leg, but the deficiency is arti
gcially supplied and ho does 110L use;
crutches as fconio may suppose. On
tho contrary, ho gets around with
about as much ease and as rapidly as
anyone else. It does not prevent him
from plowing, teaming and doing other
kinds of work 011 his farm. Mr. Guild
is a fair penman, has taught several
terms of school in this country and in
Kansas, and served as asfoetor there
for some time. l ie appears to bo a
man of moro than ordinary intelligence

people will not miss it much by elect

The election which will occur iu less
than two wcoks from this date will be
tho most important In its results of
any that has occurred iu many years."
Insignificant as tho State of Oregon
is when compared to some of its more
populous neighbors, it is being
watched by tho entire Union with con
siderable interest and the voico of its
pcoplo as showing the tread of popu
lar opinion iu regard to new and vital
issues, may bo tho cause of important
changes iu tho policy of tho United
States government Every man should
feel that bo has an individual interest
in the matter and that upon his actions
as well as at that of every other citi
zen rests the safety, piospcrity and
freedom of this fair laud. As tho
hosts of Napoleon, beneath tho Pyra
mids of Egypt, wore reminded that
the heroes of forty conturios were
looking down upon them, so should
our peoplo bear iu mind that, not
only tho departed patriots of our own
country, who resisted all attempts to
enslave them in former times, but tho
tolling masses of their living brethren
as well, are looking at them now and
expect them to act vLoly and well.
Wo havo but liltlo fear that this will
not bo done. Our faith iu tho good
sense and honesty of tho peoplo of tho
republic Is great, llrave. patient,
generous, forbearing and slow to act ,
but onco thoroughly awakened to tho
knowledge of a wrong, that wrong is
knocked out of existence with an alac
rity that is truly rofroshing.
Thorols but ono question now before
tho Amorican peoplo to bo disposed
of, but that is a question of vast im
portance One in which tho sacred
lights of every citi.on is involved.
U is a question of taxation unjust
taxation, compared with which tho
Stamp Act, which so raised tho ho of
our ancestors In llostou harbor, is as
nothing. Tho spirit of Injustice is
identical, but tho method adopted Is
far more dangerous, because hedged
about with tho sophistry of designing
demagogues who would load tho unin
formed and unsuspecting to boliovo
that It Is a blessing instead of a curse.
An cnoinv advancing openly wo may
know how to withstand, but when ho ,
comes unttor tito guiso 01 moiuoriy
friendship we tire takon at a disadvan
tage, Let no man bo docelvod. On
ono side iu this contest arc arrayed all
tho millionaires monopolists rail
road kings and the pimuitos of that
monlod aristocracy which a mistaken
system of government has forte-red.
On tho other side arc tho tolling hon-
est masses of the people. On one
side is brought to bear all the iiiilu- ,
euro that money can procure, on the i
i other is opposed the voice of the pco- j
I pie, backed only by tho consciousness ,
I of justice and right. When sixty .
! million dollars tiro wrested from the ;
' people each year, in excess of the
) needs of the government there is a
gigantic wrong to bo righted. Rut
when we rolled that the proness that
puts that sum into the IT. .S. treasury '
drops at the same lime a much greater I
amount into tho pockets of a favored j
class under the plea that our "infant J
iiiiln.-tries" arc thus protected, it at j
once becomes apparent that resistance
will bo made to any move having for
its object the mitigation of the evil,
uuuui 11, aim win navu iu k:uu it iu
the party loaders. What an admis
sion for any man endowed with ordi
nary reason to make! In it are the
germs of that weakness that dcrna-
fcgogucs make use of, and despots fos
ter to their interest. AViUiaui Lloyd
Garrison trulv says:
nothing iutiicate in freedom, free in
stitutions, the law of interchange, llio
measure of reciprocity. It is tho leg
erdemain of class legislation, disre
garding the common interests of the
people , that creates confusion , sophis
ticates the judgment , and dazzles to
betray." He is correct. Keason is
the safeguard of mankind, and ho
who cannot exercise it, or is afraid to
lest he offend sonic man lie esteems as
a leader, is in a fair way to become a
Wo trust that every reader of Tin:
Scout will fully investigate this ques
tion for himself and at the ensuing
election throw off nil servile allcgianco
to party or party leaders and vote as
hiseasoii directs him, whether it be
right or wrong. Mis verdict when
agregaled with thoso given by his
neighbors, and tho average drawn,
will bo the right one. Then will
demagogues and money sharks, who
only thrive on the credulity of the
people, wake up to find their occupa
tion .gone. The toiling slaves in the
factories of our cities, who pay iu
sweat a tribute to their masters, and
are doled out just enough bread to
keep life in their bodies, will find a
measure of relief, although in their
ignorance they may not know from
whence it comes. Tho fanners and all
the 'workers who compose the bone
and sinew of tho country, and whose
exertions are guided by reason, will
bo glad in the consciousness that they
are the arbiters of their own fortunes,
and that a mark of servitude in tho
shape of a revenue stamp, is not to be
found 011,' every thing they cat, drink
or wear. Then will there dawn an
era of prosperity such as we have
never witnessed, and our people di
vested of every species of slavery will
grow broader minded as tho years ad
vance, and our land wilt be a glorious

The First Sign
Of failing health, whether in tho form of
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
senso of General Weariness and Loss of
Appetite, should suggest tho uso of
Aycr's Sarsaparilla. This preparation
is most effectivo for giving tone and
strength to tho enfeoblcd system, pro
moting tho digestion and assimilation of
food, restoring tho nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify
ing, enriching, and vitalizing tho blood.
Ten years ago my health began to fail.
I was troubled with a distressing Couch.
NightiSweats, Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pre
scribed by different physicians, but
becamo so weak that I could not go up
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friends recommended mo to try Aycr's
Sarsaparilla, which I did, and lam now
as healthy and strong as ever. Mrs.
K. L. Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terriblo disease. I havo
also prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an
alterative, and must say that I honestly
bolievo it to bo tho best blood mediclno
e.vercompounded. W. F. Fowler,M.D.,
D. D. S., Greenville, Tenn.
It would bo imnossiblo for mo to de
scribe what I suffered from Indigestion
and Ileadacho up to tho time I began
taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was under
tho caro of various physicians, and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained moro than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for a short time, my hcadacho disap
peared, and my stomach performed its
duties moro perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored. Mary
llarlo'y, Springiield, Mass.
I havo been greatly benefited by tho
firompt uso of Ayor'a Sarsaparilla. It
ones and invigorates tho system, regu
lates tho action of tho digestivo and
assimilative organs, and vitalizes tho
blood. It is, without doubt, tho most
reliable blood purifier yet discovered.
