THU OUIO CAMPAIGN.
The Ohio campaign is beginning to
wax warm. Tho two' candidates for
governor, Cainphcll and McKinloy,
have arranged a series of meetings in
joint debute, and tho greatest enthusi
asm prevails. Tho Cincinnati cle
ment of the democratic party, which
it was thought would strongly oppose
Campbell, is gradually dying away,
and it is now thought that tho num
ber who will probably bcratch him will
not exceed 5,000, and the fact thai
they oppose him will gain him more
votes in other parts of the state.
It doesn't ncsessarily follow that those
who scratch Campbell will vote for
McKinloy, but if they should Cani
bell can spare 5,000 votes and still be
elected, taking his race with Forakor
two years ago as a basis of calculation.
But tho Ohio election is a very un
certain problem. Tho state has al
ways gono republican on a full vote,
and though it has three times elected
a democratic governor, there was each
timo more or less republican disaffec
tion and a light vote.
But elections in all the northern
states, especially those of tho west, are
now more problematical than over
because of the manifest political dis
quietude that exists thcro. Tho farm-
ors aluanco is strong in Ohio, and
what effect it is going to have on the
coming election is not yet in tho pow
er of any man to divine. The princi
ples of tho organization ought certain
ly to incline it to Campbell rather
than McKinloy, but the republican
have made a bid for tho alliance voto
by nominating a member of tho or
ganization for licutonant-govornor.
Tho labor element is another strong
anil uncertain factor in Ohio politics.
A meeting between Governor Camn-
bell and tho Knights of Labor Nation
nl Executive Hoard is reported to have
beon held recently, and an agreement
is supposed to have been arrived at
that will give Governor Campbell tho
labor vote. If that bo truo, it is a
strong card in tho governor's favor.
Another important point lies in tho
fact that a fight is on between .Sher
man and Forakcr for tho eonatorship,
and a family discord is thus created
that will not provo couducivo to repub
Mr. McKinloy is at tho further dis
advantage that ho must necessarily
conduct ii defensive campaign, and it
looks also that ho will bo forced to
mako it ono ol apology. Ho is tho
very embodiment of high tariff idea,
so much so an to mako all considera
tion of his personal qualifications of
Governor Campbell is an active,
alert and aggressive politician. His
record as governor has beon a good
ono and ho has satisfied tho best olo
mont of both parties. He will got all
out of tho campaign Inat is to bo had
out of it, and if any man can lead tho
Ohio democrats to victory ho will.
This is tho situation at tho opening
of tho campaign. It is ono month
until tho election. Who can prophesy
methods of reaching free carnage, but
that all democrats believed in employ
ing every means to attain that end as
soon as it could bo done with safety.
He denied, however, that the democ
racy desired to rcstoie free coinage in
any manner except such as would
"make every silver dollar as good in
purchasing power as any other dollar."
Ho spoke of invoking tho treaty pow
ers in behalf of silver, implying that it
might bo necessary to proceed by way
of an international agreement.
Mr. McKinloy, who has acted the
part of the demagogue throughout the
entire silver discussion, was neatly
impaled on his own record. Mr.
Campbell asked why, in view of all the
depravity tho father of the tariff had
discovered in the "dishonest dollar,"
tho "shoddy dollar," the "short dol
lar" and tho "eighty-cent dollar," lie
voted in congress to suspend tho rules
and pass a bill providing for tho free
and unlimited coinage of silver.
The point is well taken. Mr. Mc
Kinloy did just that thing. On the
fitli of November, 1877, Mr. Bland of
Missouri tho sumo man who was pre
vented by Heed and McKinloy from
offering a free coinage bill in the last
house moved a suspension of tho
rules in order to pass a bill authoriz
ing any holder of silver bullion to de
posit it in any mint or assay office and
have it coined into standard dollars of
112. grains each on the samo terms
allowed in the ease of gold bullion.
That bill passed tho house by a voto of
10!1 to .'M, William McKinloy voting in
the affirmative Charles Foster, now
secretary of tho treasury, voted the
samo way, and so did every member of
tho Ohio delegation that voted at all.
Mr. Sherman's record is equally at
tractive in another way. Sherman
never favored silver, but ho has always
had a weakness for prophecy, and it
needs only to collect his past predict
ions and compare them with tho facts
to show that his opposition is the
surest proof that a givon policy is
Having disposed of tho false issue
raised by his opponents, and inciden
tally disposed of tho opponents them
selves, Mr. Campbell was ablo to
devote his attention principally to tho
tariff. There ho was on safe ground,
with a united parly behind him and a
divided enemy in front, and he made
tho most of his opportunities. Exam-
ol the tliistle, says:
"Aolng the railroad between here and
Salem and in many different localities
throughout the states of Oregon and
Washington the much dreaded thistle is
to be found in large quantities. This is
greatly to' be regretted, because of the
many evil and noxious weeds with
which the farmer has to contend, the
thistle is undoubtedly the meanest to
handle. The millions of seeds gathered
by each gentle passing zephyr are car
ried to some other place to find lodge
ment and a production of millions of
other seeds which in their turn are pro
ducers. After the pest is once started
in a country it is almost impossible to
get rid of it. You may mow it ever so
often and never let it go to seed, but it
will keep spreading, unless it be situ
ated where a thick sod of grass will after
many years gradually choke it out; and
in mowing you must cut oil" the plant
very early, and often, or the seed will
mature even after the plant i.s cut, there
being so much nourishment in the stalk.
Plowing is the easiest way to get rid of
it, but even this must be done with cure
and with a large amount of lalwr. The
tliistle must lie plowed under ear v. at
least before it has bloomed, and then
the plowing must be kept up, turning
every green leaf under the earth, be
cause as long as any green is left above
ground the plant will continue to grow
and thrive. There should be a most
stringently executed law regarding the
growth of the thistles in Oregon and
Washington, instead of dead letter laws,
iNo farmer can allord to let any of these
grow on his ranch or along his road, or
allow his neighlwr to grow them

convention doclared for free coinago
by such a i mall majority as to show
that tho party was seriously divided on
that point, and the hostile attitude of
Mr. Cleveland toward tho plank in
tho platform made tho situation still

The Herald's ex -editor, who has been
on a business trip to Portland for the
past two months, spent a portion of the
past week in Pendleton on his wav to
his old home at Union. He was pres
ent at the opening of the Great Indus
trial Exposition at Portland on the 17th
hist., and says there were many new
and novel features of attraction to be
seen tins year, and mat wmit tlie agri
cultural products of Oregon are not so
fully shown as might be expected it
must be remembered that the leading
features of this mammoth exposition are
art and mechanism. He thinks that
these sciences were never so beautifully
portrayed and placed before the public
gaze in the city of Portland as at the
present cxpoMtion, excepting perhaps,
the great Mexican hand farce. The
organization is, of course, somethiiiK of
a novelty, and so is a Chinese hand, but
to compare their crash! slam-bang,
rip-saw music (?) with that of (lihnore's,
Liberati's or even the Marine Hand of
Portland, is, in point of the inspirations
melody wafted upon the air like unto
a Mexican bronco compared to a Nor
man thoroughbred for size and shapeli
ness. Hut they hold their job at the
modest sum of .ffiOO per dav, and it is
