Thmnsh the solicitation of friends, I hereby
candidate for the office of
M.Subtto the decision of the county
democratic convention, Apr. "'Roberts.
Next Friday's issue will be devoted
chiefly to the interests of Lexington and
vicinity, and will be an edition of quite
5,000 copies. It was the intention to
get it out much sooner, bat there was
too mach work for the short space of
time allotted for this important tusk.
It is generally understood that Hon.
W. B. Ellis has the entire delegation
from the seventh judicial district on his
side, for nomination for congress, second
district. This we understand, is back
ed up by other counties. Ellis will no
into the convention with the strongest
following of any of the Eastern Oregon
Wk acknowledge the receipt of a pho
tograph representing the whaleback
steamer, G . W. Wetmore and others, pass

Lake Superior and Huron. Linue Hub
bard, to whom we are indebted for this
picture, adds as a "Propheoy of the
"Quick as the Cascade Locks are done

comity for a while led the van in the
number of aspirants, but now takes Bec

ty, which has four candidates.
Meanwhile the seventh judicial district
holds to its first choice and will stand
solidly for Ellis as its candidate. Sen

frequently spoken of ub a possible nom

to be greatly in his favor. Times
In the second congressional distriot
in this stute there are two prominent re.
puhlioan candidates, either of whom
would ably represent this region, in I lie
lower house and who are men of sue
exceptional good characters politically
and socially, that no opposition need be
feared in the ranks of the party. We
refer to Hon. W. B- Ellis, of Heppuer,
and Hon. J. B. Eddy, of Pendleton
These gentlemen are interested in the
growth and prosperity of that portion of
Oregon eist of the Cascade mountains.
and if either is fuvored by being eleoted
to congress, be would ably advooatc the

Passed by the Umatilla County Al
liance in session at Pendleton, January
6, 1892:
Whereas, the republican and demo
cratic parties have bad control of tne
municipal, couoty, state and national
elections tor mure than a quarter of a i
century, find during this whole period
have abused the powers and privileges
entrusted to their bands and have crim
inally wasted our public domain, be
stowing the same with a lavish hand up
on the corporations of the wealthy
olasses, thus centralizing and tutting
into the hands of the favored few that
which of right belonged to the many,
thus riving the few the power to op
press and take undue advantage of the
many, and
Whkheas, unjust discriminations have
been praoticed against the farmer and
laboring man in favor of corporations,
and the ballot has been so manipulated
by politioal bosses aod rings in the in
terest of the bondholders and curpora
tions generally UDd the voioe of the peo
ple who produce the wealth is no longer
beard only as vassals and slaves to the
political bosses, and
Whekeas, there has been several re
form organizations having in view es
sentially the same object, that is the
correction of the ballot box and in our
law making departments, the above and
many other orjing evils which ore en
dangering the very existence of our free
institutions. Therefore we, the mem
bers of Umatilla County Alliunoe, for
the love of our homes and country, do
propose to join in with the general up
rising of Americans which is taking
place all over our land to preserve iu-
tuot our free institutions, and to this
end be it resolved:
1. We demand the abolition of na
tional banks; we demand that the gov
ernment sbull establish Bub-treasuries
or depositories in the Beveral states
which shall issue money direot to the
people at a low ruto of tax not to
exceed 2 per cont. per nnnuni on non-
perishable farm products and olso upon
real estate, with proper limitations upon
the quality of land and amount ol
money ; we demand that the amount of
the circulating medium be speedily in
creased to not less than $50 per capita.
2. We demand that congress shall pass
such laws as shall effectually prevent the
deuling in futures on all agricultural and
meohuuical productions, preserving a
stringent system of procedure in trials
such as shall Beoure the prompt convio
tion and imposition of such penalties as
shall SHOure the most perfect compliance
with the law.
3. We cundemn the silver bill recent)
passed by congress, and demand in lieu
thereof the free and unlimited coinage ol
silver; the coin to be a legal tender foi
all debts, public and privnte.
4. We demand the passage of lawf
prohibiting alieu ownership of laud, and
that congress take prompt action to do
vise some plan to obtain nil lauds non
ow ned by uliens and foreign syndicates,
and that all lauds now held by railroade
and other corporations in excess of such
as is actually used and needed by then
be reclaimed by the government and held
for actual Bettlers onlv
5. Behoving in the doctrine of equu
rights to all and special privileges I
none, we demand that our national legis
lation shall be so framed in the future
as not to build up one industry at the
expense of another. We further demand
a removal of the existing heavy turilTtux
from the necessaries of life that the poo
of our laud must have. We further de
mand a just and equitable ByBtem
graduated tax
believe that the
try should be kept as much ns possible in
the bunds of the people, aud hence wt
demand that all national and state rev
enues shall be limited to the necessary
expciiBCB of tho government eoeuomi
ou 1 1 y and honestly administered,
0. To own and oporute the railroads
telegrnphB and other arteries of trans
portutiou uud communication by the
government, with due regard for the
rights of the people.

Misnaming Things.
The experienced huntsman in the woods never wastes
time looking for bear in Bear Hollow, nor deer along Deer
Creek, nor would he hope to shoot any great number of ducks
on Duck Lake, for his experience has taught him that such
points are always misnamed, and this lesson holds good with
almost everything in life. For instance, in the case of the
brands on articles of food, spices and other ground food
products, the things branded or labeled "pure", "strictly
pure" or "absolutely pure," are without exception the most
villainously adulterated. 'T is the wolf in sheep's clothing
The most brazen case is that of the Royal Baking
Powder. This article is branded and paraded before the people
as "absolutely pure" when it contains ammonia. You can
smell it in the can and often in the biscuit while hot.
What woman would use an ammonia or alum baking
powder if she knew it ? They not only destroy the stomach,
but ammonia will destroy the complexion.
Not so with Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, the
only pure cream tartar powder to be obtained, and the
only baking powder made by a physician. Dr. Price has
devoted a life-time to perfecting this old-fashioned, in
dispensable article of the culinary art that has stood all the
tests and remained the standard for forty years.
