Well, it is dead teat's all, slaughter

We did oppose that measure (Knox Coun
ty) because of its gross unfiirnens and
the greed evinced by its supporters, but
there was no opposition on the part of
citizens of Pendleton precinct to anything
like a just division of the county. If the
"divisiouists" had kept faith with the
people they might and probably would
have attained their end ; if they had been
. honest in their promises to the people
that they were in favor of a division into
three jcounties such a bill would most
probably have been passed. But as soon
as election was over designing "division-i-jU"

fortunately there are many who will dis
charge the important duty of voting by
casting their ballot for the candidate of
heir party irrespective of any other con
siderations. During the campaign that
s now drawing to a close every oppor
tunity has been afforded the intelligent
voter to decide for whom he should cast
his ballot. The press has been free in its
criticisms, and ablu speakers have expati
ated upon the candidates and the princi
ples of the parties they represent. Grave
charges of corruption have been wade
against Jas. A. Garfield, republican .can
didate for president These charges were
first made by his own party, they were
examined into by republican committes
of a republican Congress and proved be
yond all reasonable doubt. Nothing said
or written in extenuation during this
campaign has changed the verdict. He
stands convicted by his own party. W.
S. Hancock, the democratic candidate for
president, is a military man. This we
believe is the only fault laid to his charge.
His loyalty, his honesty, his ability no
one doubts. Such are the principal can
didates. It remains for the voters .to
decide which of them will be the chief
magistrate of our country. The republi
can party favors high tariff; it believes
in a strong central government, or as
Garfield puts it, it believes in the theory
of Hamilton (who desired to have the
president elected for life); it yet persists
in regarding the South as a hotbed of re
bellion and disloyalty: it refuses to allow
sectional strife to die; and departed from
the principles of its inception at the time
of Lincoln. The democratic party advo
cates tariff for revenue only ; it believes
in constitutional states' rights ; it opposes
Mongolian immigration; it believes that
the war is over and in willing to abide
by the result ; and it stil! maintains Miosr
principles during the practice of which the
country experienced its greatest prosper
ity. To which of these two parties then
would it be better to entrust the reins of
government for the next four years ? We
fancy that next Tuesday the American
people will reply by their electing Gen.
Hancock the gallant standard bearer of
the grand old democracy, .

Ex-Senator Mitchel addressed the peopla of
Weston last Tuesdcy afternoon in the interest
of the Republican party. We are sorry that
we did not hear the first part of his speech.
But what we did hear was good. Mr. Mitch
el is a pleasant and fluent speaker and carries
b.is audience right along. The gist of his ad
dress, stripped of all its oratorical embellish
ments was simply this : the South rules the
Democratic party, and the South is not to be
trusted, therefore the Democratic party can
not be trusted. He stated repeatedly and em
phatically that the interests nnd ideas of the
South, are, aud always were directly opposed
to those of the North, and that therefore we
should vote to keep the South out of power.
He never mentioned the South but in terms
of unqualified condemnation. Still the Re
publicans never do anything to foster section
al hatred. He dwelt at considerable length
upon the tariff question, showing the great
advantages to wool men from the protective
tariff system, hut forgot to mention the hard
ship it worked to tho?e who bought woolen
goods; and we fancy the latter largely outnum
ber the former; but" "the greatest amount of
good to the greatest number" is not part of
the political creed of protectionists. He ex
plained that the principal difference between
Republicans and Democrats on the question
of revenue duty, was "that the Republicans
regarded whisky, tobacco and quinine as lux
uries, while the Democrats regarded these ar
ticles as necessaries of life." He cautioned
his hearers against the tariff doctrines of the
Leader, but of course did not deign to show
any particular in which they were calculated
to mislead. He stated that Polk was elected
on the tariff issue the cry of "Polk, Dallas,
and the tariff of '42." Not a few of the audi
ence had been under the impression that the
"Annexation of Texas" was the principal issue
in that campaign; and that the stand of Clay
against those whom he was pleased to term
'land pirates," "squatters" and "robbers of
the public domain," contributed in no small
degree to defeat his Presidential aspirations.
It is well known that Clay advocated with all
the powerful eloquence of which he was so
great a master that the public lauds be sold
to the highest bidder (a splendid idea for spec
ulators), while Polk maintained that the land
should be sold to actual settlers at a price of
not more than $1 25 per acre. These were
the points that decided the election in favor
of Polk. Mr. Mitchel next took up the bun
question aud made many good points on the
Homestead law. He would have walked
triumphantly over this part 'of the course had
not an over-zealous Republican asked him to
tell what party made such enormous land
grants to the railway companies. Tho elo
quent gentleman was non-phissed, perhaps
confused. He hesitated, but rinaMy "suppos
ed" that there had been a combination, and
that lioth parties did it; then hastened to say
that both parties had agreed never to do it
any more. .
There was no enthusiasm at this point.
The speaker next showed how all the Con
gressional committees were under the control
of "ex-confederates' and. again expatiated
upon the di-.ngcr of entrusting the government
to the South, and portrayed liow powerless
the Democrats of the North were in the cau
cus and m Congress. One would almost sup
pose that Mr. Mitchel actually believed that
the whole aim of the South was to destroy the
government and injure the interests of tho
North. If we believed as he spoke, we would
gladly get rid of the South altogether. He
then made a stirring appeal to support the
Republican party .and waxed warm and elo
quent as he spoke of the many good things it
had done for the 'people: He was listened to
throughout with respectful attention' and fre
quently received hearty applause. The speech
was a good one aud greatly enjoyed by all
who heard it.
P. S. He also forgot to say that Garfield
voted against the tariff on wool 1
Republicans haow Hancock's record
is good, and that their own party has
condemned Garfield. Yet some are afraid
to trust Hancock's word because he
might go back on it ; but support Garfield
who has done so.

The Portland Standard has had the
Chinese posters, which appear in con
spicuous places in that city, translated,
aud finds it is a call upon the Chinese
. ' for money to aid in electing Garfield,
saying that Hancock will drive tnem "at
the point of the bayonet" out of the land.
That if they want to stay and make
money they must help to elect Garfield,
and that every cent they give now for
that purpose will return thBm twenty-
five. This may just be a ruse on the
part of Republican managers to obtain
money for the campaign, but in any
light it certainly looks bad.

Hon Jno. Q. Wilson proved himself a
man of honor. He simply promised to
respect petitions. Supposing that Kelley
represented the views of this end of the
county, they two and Hon. Pennington
agreed on the lines of what is known as

showed him the error, and he nobly ac
cepted his duty to his constituents and

The Pendleton Tribune says, "Wil-!
liamson, Steen fc Co. so long
as they advocate an unjust measure, just
so long will our hunest citizens oppose
it." This in reference to the advocacy
of creating Knox Co. The two named
gentlemen are pretty well known in the
county, but who are the "Co." The
"company" are about 1235 persons who
signed a petition for such division, whom
then the Tribune says "honest citizens
will oppose when advocating such meas
ures. Thht is a cool insult to a majori
ty of the voters of the county. If this
