Tbe Duty of tiie National Convention.
On the 9th of July the National
Democratic Convention meets at
Baltimore to nominate candidates
for President and Vice Presi
dent. While we have always sub
mitted a ready acquiescence to the
action of the National Convention,
we feel it our duty to enter our
protest in advance against the dan
icrotis and anti-Democratic course
advocated and counseled by some
p!-(i!'essed Democratic leaders and
journals. We allude to the policy
of surrende! iiiij the Demociatic
party to their iive-long enemies,
ami jJedu'm the party to a sup
port of men who would have no
sympathy with the organization.
Such a course we should regard as
the greatest calamity which could
.befall the future of our party and
No Democrat would be obliged
to support the nominees of the Lib
eral lienubHean Convention, and
but few could be rallied on such a
ticket. In Oregon there would be
no party organization to take up
their battle, and an overwhelming
defeat would be the result, of such
a course. We regard it as most
tin vise to seduce the party into the
support of the candidates of the
Cincinnati Convention. Such at
tempt cannot strengthen the party,
Avhile they are most likely to even
tuate in injury and lessen the pros
pects of success. We have never
believed that there was really any
depth in the fueling for 3Ir. Greeley,
and, every day convinces us that
the true sentiment, of the Democ
racy is adverse to adopting him as
our standard bearer.
We are satisfied that with men
lor our
nominees who can com
the support
ot the honest
uutranieled citizens of all parties,
opposed to Grant, we shall hold in
our l;and the
; an ces of succe:
e near the opinions or the people
expressed freely on this question,
and we kuow that the masses,
those who constitute the voters
and workers on ejection day, de
mand a party nomination, and will
not tight tor any other leaders than
men of their own choice. A defeat
with a Democrat, would be a sad

same wo
doubtedly be the case were we to
take a Iladical, and in the former
case, while we
would be defeated.
we would at least retain our
ous a party, and in the latter, we
would lose all, even the respect of
our opponents,
The party has been defeated for
the last twelve years, yet it lias
not,e.ven in its darkest days, thought
seriously of resorting to such ob
jectionable and dishonorable means
for success. We do not question
the right of individual Democrats
to express their preferance in any
ilireclion; but we deny their right
to force journals in consonance
with their views, or to impugn the
motives of those who believe that
this, above all other times, is the
hour when nartv discipline and
party organization should be strict-j llls "nn-v d',,KMl tli(-'s-' same bibor

Xf.vhv, of Yamhill county, died
Saturday at Portland from
The lead Party" Again.
The Radical press of Oregon is j
again announcing the death of the !
Democracy. Iu 1802, wluea the
Democracy carried only one coun-!
ty in the State Josephine this
same Democratic party was pro
nounced "dead," and we have
heard the identical cry ever since, '
especially when the Radicals gain
ed a victory, even if it were noth
ing greater than some municipal
election. Yet the Democracy sur
vived that Waterloo defeat, and
soon overthrew its opponents in
our State. That election was won
by them under false colors, and
the last was gained by fraud and
repeaters. They were soon defeat
ed. Four years ago the Democracy
trained the State. Two years later,
and they again were victorious
against corruption and rascality.
This election lias gone against the
Democracy by about 800 majori
ty, while the returns will show a
larger Democratic vole than has
ever before been polled in this
State, and had none but legal
votes been cast, and t he voice of the
people prevailed, the Democracy
would have again been triumphant.
Jhit the Radicals, through their
money and facilities of repeating
and illegal voting, have carried the
State. If the Radicals had gained
this victory by honest means,there
would be some reason for them to
pronounce the death of the Democ
racy, but when it is gained by the
means it was, the people will be
quick in rising to rebuke the cor
ruptionists. Oregon is to-day, up
on an honest and fair vote, Demo
cratic by at least 1,000 majority,
and the barefaced frauds perpetra
ted by the Radicals will soon con
sign them to an everlasting pit of
damnation. The Democracy, hen
they are defeated by fraud, can
survive a temporary loss, while our
opponents will find the victory
they have gained but an empty
triumph, soon to be lost and wrest
ed from them by an indignant and
outraged people. In the counties
of .Multnomah, Douglas and Lane,
where their corruption had the
best opportunities of devcJoping
itself, their gains are made. In
these counties there are at least
one thousand more votes polled
than they have legal voters. This
is the way the Radical victory was
gained, and while it was purchase'
.at an enormous price, it will not
last, and wiil prove this very fall
that Oregon is Democratic by an
overwhelming majority.
Let our Radical victors look
back a few years and see from
what the "dead Democratic'" party
has arisen in Oregon, and they will
soon ascertain the fact that this
defeat will not discourage the brave
and incorruptahlu Democracy 'of
Oregon; but they will rise in their
might, and hurl from power the
scoundrels and their aiders who
have so outraged the sacreduess of
the ballot-box. While the Radi
cals are rejoicing over their ill-gotten
victory, they ought to be
repenting and hanging their heads
with shame for their infamous acts.
All good and true citizens will
unite in future to put down a party
that has to resoit to such unlawful
means to accomplish its object.
The seal of condemnation is already
placed upon them, and will be to
the perpetrators when the people
again have an opportunity to ex
press themselves.

for the Democracy. We do this

counted for the Radicals which
ought to be thrown out. The

again placed under special obliga

able canvass of the county prior to
ihe late; election. 3Ir. Deatie is
one of the best speakers in our
.State, anel his ellbrts in behalf of
the Democracy did much towards
the achievement of our splendiel
victory in this county.
That's Good. A Iiadical friend
of ours says the locomotive which
passed through this county on elec
tion day with twenty repeaters on
it, came up to get the election re
turns, and not to vote. That is a
good joke, and the only wonder to
us is that they did not bring fifty
men along to get the election re
turns. That man deserves a leath

Our Special Washington Letter.
Washington. May 27th. 1S72.
- Editor Entkhusk : The business of
the session is rapidly coming to a close.
Tbe past week has been q-iite exciting in
the Senate, that body having bad one ccn
tinuoua session of 24 hours. Daring that
time the bill authorizing the President to
suspend lhe writ of haheaa corpus, aud
use the military to elect himself, a civil
rights bill, and an amnesty bill were
passed. Charles Snmntfr being asleep
when the latter bid got through the Sen
ate. It is not believed that the two first
named bills can got through the House.
The various appropriation bills are
nearly all through, they are largely over
the estimates from the Departments, for
this Congress has been quite liberal in its
The Tariff bill got through the House
last Monday, and the Senate has had it
under consideration day and night since
it was sent to that body. The Finance
committee will report it to-day, and it
will be considered at once by the Senate.
The proposed reductions in the tariff and
internal revenue will amount to about
sixty million of dollars. This reduction
is made in view of the pending Rresi
denlial election, wiih a hope that it may
save lhe skins of those in power.
The impression prevails that Congre-ss
will certainly adjourn ou the 3d day of
The Treaty of Washington with a suj -
pleme ital article has been in the. Senate
lor a week, and lengthy Executive ses
sions have been the order of the day. It
is stated that the Senate came to a conclu
sion on Saturday night, adopting the ad
ditional article.
The Philadelphia Convention meets on
the 5th of June, and it will merely meet to
carry out in a formal manner the views o!
Craut's olliceholdt-rs and renominate
Ulysses. There will be a little tustle
over the Vice Presidency, but the artful
Wilson will '-get away with it.' There
appears to be no enthusiasm either here
or any wfTere else over this Philadelphia
Convention. The tact is it looks like go
ing to a big funeral Radical members of
the House and Senate all look melancholy
and well they may. in view of lhe un
favorable prospects of their pari v. The
people want, a change ef rulers and mean
to have it. This is apparent in all direc
tions. The Demi'Cralic National Convention
meets in Ralumore on the l) h of July,
and the time is too far off to tell how
large the attendance will be. It is de
sirable that the whole country should be
represented there, as much depends upon
its action. The opinion prevails that the
nominees of the Cincinnati Convention
will be endorsed by the Dein cratic Con
vention. There have been many im
pel taut movements on the pari id' some
of the States endorsing the Cincimi.i ii
Platform which has increa -t-.I the. pros

Pen Puller's prophetic soul dictated ttte
following words concerning Grant :
Grant's election to the Presidency will
be a misfortune, because it will put iu a
man without a head or heart; indifferent
to human suffering and impotent to gov
ern.'' If Grain's election was a misfortune,
his re-election will be a double calamity.
He has shown himself to be without a
head in his treatment of ail questions in
volving the slightest stretch of intellect,
and without, a heart in his administration
of affairs iu the South, where his iMdilfer
erce to lhe suffeiinir caused by the out
rages of his subordinates has been pain
fully evident, and where his impotency to
govern lias produced terror, dismay and
politic il confusion where once were
peac, contentment and political order.
The increase in lhe vote in this State in
the past two years is about three thousand.
Yes, and if Wilson 'would have
needed three thousand more, you
would have had that further in
crease. Tiie increase i.-s a fraud
upon the people of Oregon, and
will eventually result in the ever

perpetratcei it.

G.'iAvr's Skkan". The nomination of
Harlrau't a notorious ring" master, for
Governor of Pennsylvania, by tin; Ridi
cals. has demoralized Grant's party in
that State. Harirauft was implicated in
the Evans frauds, one of the most stupen
dous atiempts at public robbery of ibis
free booting oHiee-holdei s" era.
The Philadelphia I'.ist says that -the
Padieal papers that are opposing II irt
raui'l assume the anomalous position that
Pennsylvania can elect the Democratic
candidate for Governor in October, -and
yet elect Grant in November. We can
not believe lhat any man acquainted with
the political history ol Pennsylvania can
sincerely believe thai the State can be
lost to the Pep'ibiiean party in October
nod saved to ' it in November. Il irtrauft
may be defeated in October, and if he be.
a disaster as significant as Sedan awaits
(Iran! ia I'enn-ylv tiMa in November. If
the nis! lie at all probable lhe latter will
be inevitable, and ihose Radicals who are
leading in this guerrilla warfare cannot,
be ignorant of it. They are simply fight
ing Gr mt behind a masked battery, and
if they succeed in breaking the lines in
October, a rout must follow th it will con
tinue till the second Tuesdav of Novem
ber." Saix Amox; i UK Pitoi'iiK is Hi en. TLe
odore Til ton is forced against the cen
tralism of Grant. Here is the way in
which be speaks of the government of
robbers: "The. worst thing about General
Grant is not hi chronic stupidity and
political insagacity which wholly unfit
him for any civil position requiring pod -ical
knowledge and insight It. is not the
appointment of his half imbecile and
half-knavish relatives lo oltiees which
they disgrase. It is not his connivance at
corruption, his patronage of thieves, his
constant advertising for a policy and
never adhering to a policy when it is
adopted, -bis tas'es and low associates.
All these ihiiiirs. bad as they are. are
trivia! in comparison with his fearful
usurpation of executive power and pat
ronage. If he can cairy a convention by
means of cash now. what is to hinder his
carrying the county by cannon four years
hence?" The principle is Ihe same, the
means are of no account. It is the prin
ciple that we protest against as full of
perils. And. if the Republican party had
not lost the vigor of its early virtue, it
would throw the usurper from its should
ers in scoin.and sweep his creatures
from its councils as so much offal."
A Guoit Geo. II. Williams made a
speeeh at Salem the other day. and in al
luding to ttie delegation from Jackson
county in the House of Representatives
at the last session, used the following lan
guage : -Look at your Jackson county
representatives. One of them (Jack Pur
nett) filed on yd.OOO acres of swamp land;
one (Joe Wells) is a murderer, and tine
(Jackson Rader) is dead wul .jone I know
not ichre.'- The allusion to Jack Kader
could 011I7 come tronv a bearl lost to all
feeling of humanity and calloused to -v-ery
sentiment of goodness. Mr. Iiader
was a mm who. in every feeling, thought
and attribute of manhood. ' was as far
above George. II. Williams as the heavens
are above the earth. He was one of
(rod's noblest works an honest nun.
Williams is. not. That'a the difference be
tween them. Williams has earned for
himself ;i lasting infamy by his contempt
uous allusion to the good aud honest man
who sleeps in his lonely grave on the
banks of the Willamette, and wlitm the
dread hour of death shall come upon him.
Geo. II Williams will ardently wish that
he possessed the spotless soul and Chris
