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" in the upper end of the county im mediately proceeded to go back ou all their pledges fcc. East Oregonian We are weary of correcting sueh state ments as the above. It certainly looks as if policy should keep the K 0. near the facts even if lacking any higher Next Tuesday the citizens of the Uni ted States will be called upon to decide who shall be their nest President. TJn-, 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, . ' REPUBLICAN SPEAKING. THE CBAD OLD DOIOCEMTIV PASTY.

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. MUSIC STORE ! A m mm n t ?

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. 107 First Strtet,'PORTLAirD, Or. IE LEADING MUSIC DEALERS !

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.

Jr. in the W. V. Daily Statesman, we cull the fol lowing : "Weston still keeps up her old lick and is fast attaining the pre-eminence to which the energy and foresight of her business men in locating a town in such a commanding posi tion justly entitles her. Among the notice able improvements going on at Weston are the handsome two-story brick, now nearing com pletion, erected by J. E. Jones, who will car ry on his hardware business therein; Dusen bery & Co. are about moving to a brick store adjoining their old stand, to afford them ac commodation for their extended trade; a new City Hall, of the same material, is also going up which will prove quite an adornment and much to the value of real estate in the city; Mr. John's new hotel is a fine building, nnigne in architectural design, which en hances the appearance of the whole block in which it is built; tho establishment is being upholstered and furnished- throughout in the most elegant style, and, when finished, the completeness of its appointments will entitle it to take its place as one ot tne best hotels in the cnuntry. Saling & Reese have hightened the frout of their brick store as a further pro tection against fire, which gives it a better and more business-like asjiect. The Weston flour ing mills under the able management of the Procbstel Bro.'s do nn immense home trade and export large quantities of the usual high standard brand of flour which this mill always turns out. Centerville, like Weston, has also grown considerably this year, and is the seat of arge .and constantly increasing trade. aflSTEiTirt 6-H-S0-3m Gen'l Agents. Gen.
