UNION, OREGON, FRIDAY, ,11'NE 15,
ice is ''iven for the nc anil
benclit of our local writers of verse,
and we hope to make it a pleasing feature
of the paper. To that cud contributions are
solicited, but they must po-en undoubted
literary merit to" obtain place and recogni
tion here Ed.
Written for the Scott.
Sacred to Hie memory of the Democrats
of Union county.
Heaven knows best, for her impartial eyes
Sec each man's merit often fall and rie";
She views them from a well established
And then dissects thein'incrit, joint by joint.
Humility and scorn she reckons not,
Nor cares how deep may pierce the after
shot, Hut as each man deserves a different place,
So she appoints despite a smiling face,
And whether party zeal Haines hijih or low
The favored few are victors o'er the foe.
No party now. as in the times pone by
Can flourish, lest It's cuided bv her eye ;
And so we sec, throuidi all thelast campaign
How many struggles, wholly, were in vain?
Brave Crawford, how he climbs the slip
And boldly walks up to the foremost ranks.
And sec him wield the sword of public
A modern giant, by old Hlaekstone taught.
His tongue devours each policy of wrontr,
And sends up to the heaven" a campaign
But then his foe is gathering up his force,
While Crawford rides on death's white horse
And down amid the ruins of the past
Brave Crawford sinks a hero to the Inst.
And see Lou I'incliarl drifting on the tide,
While yawning deep, Ids hopes and fears di
vide, Now up, now down, forcyer on the go;
At first. cpiitc'fast, at last subdued and slow,
And all along the sympathies sincere
Like some old tune, are poured into cich
Lo! all arc gone, the bright smiles and ci
gars, Just like a glaneo cast upward to the stars I
And now each hope is nursed with tender
And caged within tho heart, a gem more
Than any ollice whatsoe'er it be.
For now he sits at. home, contented, free
He sees no more where olllces are fat.
And e'en forget.s that he's a democrat.
And Ilutlman I See him climb the he!)
With hand upraised and head-just oui of
a do ye uie lowered ciouds oi common gain,
But there his mighty struggle is in vain,
For now, at least, "one thing retards bis
The smuggled poll books 'twas a wicked
And now his foes give him a fit reward,
Instead of smiles hu sees their upraised
lie bows before the steady, scornful ga4-,
Then steals in silence toliis resting nlacc ;
His iields of grain, and muley Calloway
Now tempts his foes, till they fain would go
But no ! They to their ofllce, lie his blood
To build their fame as firm' as Plymouth
He lets the foes his Interests represent.
And saves tho money which he might have
lie lives at home amid the tranquil scenes,
And for a soothing diet, dines on turnip
Courageous Oliver! Hurrah for thee!
A daring strike on Life's contrary sea ;
Have hope, th v race is just begun,
And Oregon will recognize her son.
No matter how a party's zeal may llanie,
The people yet will raise thy honored name
On banners high, beneath the azure skies,
And thus encouragefl, you will grandly
Don't weep, my friend, for weeping Is a sin,
And with defeat some victories begin;
Submit, to this, and do thy humble part,
For brave submission issues from the heart.

Tho modosof death's approach are
vurious, and statistics show conclusive
ly that more people die from diseases
of the throat und lungs than any other.
It is probable that everyone without

where there germs fall upon suitable
soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is sliown by u slight
tickling cnatioii in the throat and if
allowed to continue (heir ravages they
extend to the lungs producing con

if allowed (o proceed will in timo cause
death. At the oiuet you must act
with promptness; allowing a cold to go
without attention is dangerous and

High Valloy Happenings.
Homo (o Medico, greeting:
The same old story, high wages,
low wages, pauper labor, protection,
high tariff, and ruined factories is all
balderdash. All this whining of (ho
projected fellows (bat if you repeal or
even reduce the (aritV they can't com
pete with the pauper labor of Europe,
is (ho most contemptible falsehood.
Wo have been competing with tho
whole world for more (ban 200 years
and for more than 100 years of tho
lime without one crnt of protection
and so rapid was our progress am
prosperity that with our cheaper aim
more abundant raw material the su
premacy of England, not only iu
America, but in tho markets of the
world, was threatened by her now
rival and sho passed laws restricting
the commerce of her colonies. Very
early iu the history of our government
the American merchant was seen with
his cargo and samples in every coun
try on the globe, the Amoiic&u sailor
in every port, the American flag on
every sea, tho Americ.m ship was
tho iinest, most graceful and rapid
sailor, and thus wo continued to pro
gress in this country in spite of low
tarill' until 1S(0 when we had tho
finest commercial marine that had
over lntived tlie ocean. Ship building
was next lo agriculture in. ui"orflce
W? WUI nipS to Haughty England',
we carried one-third of tho tonnage of
the world, .and throe-fourths of our
own produce. Other industries had
developed in likn proportion. The
lockout was unheard of, the strike was
unknown, the (ramp was unborn, while
poverty and industry had never occu
pied tho tame quarters. Hut, alas,
that policy has been changed. Oh, ye
gods, what a revelation ! Alas for tho
lesult, or at least for tho present con
dition. With twenly-fivo years of
commercial restriction our tnercantilo
marine is banished from tho seas and
the grandest carrying trade of tho
world handed over to England, and in
tho name of labor an industry next to
agriculture in importance is annihi
lated. Wo carry, practically, none of
the tonnage of the world, and but 15
per cent, of our own products. Wo
pay foreigners $130,000,000, annually,
lo curry our produce abroad, no Amer
ican sailors, no foreign merchant, no
use for water except as a beverage.
Agriculture is crushed. Seven-tenths
of tho farms mortgaged. Tho farmer
forced to sell his wheat aqd corn at
the (pauper) port of Liverpool and
buy his coat in Massachusetts. Idle
ness in robes and Industry, in rags.
The cottage is robbed to adorn tho
palaco, and a million tramps speaking
"United States" are roaming our land
as a giim prophesy (hat liberty is dy
ing. And then tho blind ussuranco
iu saying: "Nay verily we have need
of protection by tarill or otherwise.
We cannot have loo muuh and main
tain ourselves against a class who
would trample us under foot." Oh,
Consistency thou art a jewel ! hi 1881
tho Democratic and Republican plat
forms were just tho same on tariff, also
a number of Kopublican state plat
forms favored a reduction on tariff.
What has brought about about this
great Republican backslide iu so short
a time? Thore is far too little of genu
ine honesty iu tho llcjuiblicaus carry
ing out their political pledges. Tho
timo has como when more than prom
ises are needed. Tho farmers want tho
issue on tin iff and protection clearly
defined. Hack of that tliero is a deep
er meaning iu tho finance question.
Wo have too much money iu the treas
ury and too little per capita in circula
tion. Money is too close and it does
not need lo bo thus. If tho platforms
declare in favor of righting those
wrongs tho people should see tho point
and support this party that will draw
a lino and hew to it, and not say ono
thing and do another. Thou again,
you find a Scottish savings hank in
Portland giinding tho life .out of tho
Willamette farmers, but what is tho
camo of tho farmers patronizing this
concern? I'leato explain. Is it high
or low tariff, or tariff at all? Or do
you want to make it appear that tho
farmers all over the country havo all
at ouco become candidates for tho lu
natic asylum and 'have becomq unfit
to manage their hminosM. Iieing a
farmer myself J know by experience
where our protection comes. in eter
nally out of pocket.
Tho. rain has revived I ho drooping
spirits ot everybody.
