The Office-Holder's Platform.
The platform adopted by Grant's
Convention at Philadelphia will
be found on our first page. It is
full of empty and meaningless
phrases, and is certainly the weak
est State paper to go before the
people on we have ever seen. It
attempts to embrace everything in
generalities, while it promises
ndthing to relief the people. The
hollowness of this document is
very apparent when we make just
three quotations. This platform
states that the Republican party is
in favor of abolishing the franking
privilege. If the Republican
party are iu earnest in this, why
have they not abolished it within
the past ten years, when they
have had large majorities in both
Houses of Congress. This decla
ration is simply to catch votes.
The next absurdity is, that they
are in favor of general amnesty.
Why docs a Radical Congress
vote it down then whenever the
question comes before it ? The
Democracy have shown by their
votes in Congress that they are in
favor of this measure, and if the
Radicals are why have they not"
given the sacred right to the peo
ple of the South to which they are
entitled ? The next is, that they
are opposed to giving away the
puttie domain to land grabbers.
In the teeth of ibis profession the
- Radicals claim their late victory in
Oregon because the Democracy
was opposed to this very kind
grabbing business. The platform
is a batch of buncomb, and if it
has any merits, they will be like
all its former platforms, broken as
soon as the party again gets into
power. The assertion and flourish
made about the reduction of the
national debt is simply false, as
we have repeatedly shown that
the debt has not been reduced any
thing like what is claimed, and by
no means in proportion to the
jvmouut it should be, taking into
consideration the enormous taxes
the people havo to pay. We
have not space to go into detail
this week on this question, and
shall refer to it from time to time
el urine: the canvass.
Facts for Consideration.
The vote this year of Multno
mah, Lane and Douglas counties,
shows a remarkable- increase over
cihaof two years ago. In Mult
nomah it is an increase of 8 12, of
which the Radicals gain GS8, and
the Democrats gain 171. It
is fair to presume that the legal
vote of Multnomah has not in
creased over 350 which would have
reduced the Radical majority to
about the same as it was two
years aero. In Lane county the in
crease is 331, of this the lecral in
crease is probably 121, the balance
arc frauds and repeaters. In
Douglas the increase is 333, allow
ing the legal increase to be 133,
which is certainly its full amount.
it would leave 200 illegal votes
polled in that county. These
three counties then, give illegal
votes as follows : Multnomah, 500 ;
Lane 200 ; Douglas, 200, making
a total fraud of 900. Add to
these figures the illegal votes poll
ed in other counties by the Radi
cals, iu the valley, which amount
to not less than 200, and we find
that Judge Purnett, had he re
ceived the same vote Mr. Slater
got two years ago in Eastern Ore
CD J5on would have been elected by
at least 800 majority. These fig
ures show very plainly that a most
stupendous fraud has been perpe
trated, and that a majority of the
lc,Tal voters of Oregon have been
cheated out of their choice. When
it is considered that the vote, as a
rule, is not larger when a Con
gressman alone is to be elected
than the previous election, the
fraud is still more apparent The
Democracy have made a fine show
ing, and poll fully their share of
increase m every county, and had
there been no illegal votes polled
would have carried the Legisla
ture and the entire: Stale by a
larger majority than they did two
The Way it was Done.
We learn from a reliable gentle
man who was on the train the day
of election, that a car load of men
left the station this side of Oak
land, and the first voting place
they came to in Douglas county,
all hands were ordered off to vote.
This done, they left for the next
poll, and repeated the work. The
next place of voting was in Lane
county, and before they reached
Eugene, had voted twice in that
county, and after reaching Eugene,
this gentleman walked up to de
posit his vote for the State ticket,
and here he found a portion of
the se very same men voting again.
This accounts for the Radical
majorities in Lane and Douglas.
From the description of the man
who took charge of .this voting
stock after they reached Lane
county, we presume it was that
delecate gentleman by the name
of Jim Comstock. Our informant
said he was a man, weighing about
250 and heard him called "Jim."
A young man who was on the
freight train that morning for
Portland, informs us that the men
on the train mostly voted at Jeffer
son as they passed through. They
did not attempt to repeat the vot
ing process until they reached
Gervais, where the entire crowd
rushed out of the cars and voted.
They next came to Aurora, where
Dr. Kiel closed the polls on them
and refused to let them repeat
their infamous outrage, informing
them that they did not belong
there and could not vote. This
same game was practiced by the
freight train going south that
morning, and we have no doubt
but hundreds of illegal votes were
polled in every county along the
line of the road. Under such cir
cumstances, we ask the honest
reader whether the Radicals havo
any reason to boast over their ill
gotten victory? Should it not
rather bow their heads in shame ?
It is not a verdict from the people,
but a fraud upon their rights. The
people now know what they must
guard against two years hence,
and we predict that their verdict
will be overwhelming against the
perpetrators of this gigantic fraud.
Paid the liill.
The County Court paid the bill
of $80 for special deputies on the
3d inst. Mr. Myers appointed ten
special deputies two years ago,and
this same County Court refused to
to pay them for their services, say
ing that there was no law for it.
We fail to see where the' can now
find the law to pay Mr. Warner's
deputies. If it was unlawful for
Mr, Myers to appoint them and
have them paid out of the county
funds, where does this same body
now get the law to warrant Mr,
Warner in appointing and receiving
pay for sixteen dcputies,when there
was not half the need for them this
year that there was two j-ears ago?
Besides, tho Sheriff himself pre
sented a bill for $5 for his own
services. It looks to us as though
there is a disposition on tho part of
those about to retire from office to
make the last grand haul, and the
County Court is lending itself a
a party to the transaction. It is
their last grab at the people's mon
ey, as Radicalism in this county is
forever dead, and they are making
the best of it. Let the people re
member these facts two years
from now, when these same men
will again present themselves for
A ConnECTiox. The Radical
press of this State have stated that
lion. D. W. Yoorhees was defeat
ed in Ins district for delegate to
tho Baltimore Convention, owing
to his opposition to Greeley. The
following telegram from Terre
Haute, uuder date of June 15th,
tells a different story :
The Journal of this morning contains a
direct and omphalic contradiction of the
report telegraphed from here that Dan
Voorheea was defeated in his own dis
trict for the position cf delegate to the
Baltimore Convention. It says he per
emptorily declined to accept the nomina
tion, which was urged upon him by mem
bers ; and also says, Yoorhees has been
approached by strong Greeleyitea in the
district, and urged to accept a nomina
tion tor Congress as the only means of
saving the district Irom tho Republicans.
The indications from the Eastern
States are that enough delegates
to the Baltimore Convention
be instructed to nominate Greeley.
We fear that the Democracy are
taking a very dangerous course.
While we hope for better results
we cannot shut our eyes to facts
as they exist, and it is our opinion
that Greeley will get the indorse
ment of the Convention,

Are not the people of this county
fortunate in getting rid of the

ty ? It has cost near forty thous

run the county. These are not
"electioneering lies," as our Radi
cal friends say before the election,
but facts which the records will
prove. Radical rule lias been nr.
expensive luxury for the people of
Clackamas county. Can any one
tell us what the people of this
county have to show for the $10,
000 expended last year?
Tin-; ' Doi.i.v Vauukn"' Pi.atfoku. The
string of platitudes adopted at the Phila

exhibits that the spiiit of the times h;;s
caused a combination of resolutions, enun
ciated in words as flashy and stunning as
the colors which now, at the command ol
fashion, bedeck the person of the fair sex.
The ideas of tho Convention must have
been given expression with the object of
making a platform as striking and varied
to the mortal vision of its supporters as
are the calico arrangements which the gen
tler sex now wear for the purpose of ex
citing admiration in the eyes of the lords
of creation. But the "Dolly Vanden'
clothing of the Radical platform will not
conceal the defects of the hideous organi
zation it was made to conceal. The peo
ple duiing the past few years have felt ihe
iron grip of Radicalism, and it, cannot be
dressed in any clothing that will induce
them to view it with any feeling save that
of intense disgust.
The Xew Xorihicesl speaks as follows :
The Republicans had a Temperance
plank in their State platform in She elec
tion campaign just closed. The Republi
cans have elected a majority of the Legis
lature.' Will they enact a stringent Tem
perance law ?
Does our fair sister suppose the Radi
cals mean to keep any pledge they make
before election ? Let her read the his
tory of the party and she will find that it
is composed of broken pledges and prom
ises from its very organization. In the
estimation of Radicals, platforms are
made to be broken at convenience.

Exactly Ho. The vote last
Monday, in Portland, was 1734
against 2419 polled on tho 3d of
Juno, a difioronce of 085 votes.
Does any honest citizen need fur
ther evidence that a gigantic fraud
was perpetrated two weeks ago ?
That 085 was made up of repeat
ers and Pen Ilolladay's steamer
hands. We apprehend the
Kadicals will make all kinds of ex
cuses for this falling off, as the
fraud is so barefaced. They, no
doubt, will declare that the poo-
pie did not vote last Monday. "We
venture the assertion that more
bona Jule citizens of Portland did
not vote on the 3d of June than
last Monday. These figures show
the facts as thev exist. !
V"e hear that Mr. Coekr-ui will contest
the right of .Mr. Myers to the seat in the
Senate for Clackamas county, being saiis
fied that he can prove that a large number
of illegal votes were thrown for the latter.
The above bit ot information is
from the Orcfonian. The Padi-
cals of this county had complete
control of the
number of illegal votes to be cast
for the Padical ticket, and to cap
the climax, refused to count 04
votes which wore entered on the
poll-books, besides rejecting a num
ber of others. We have no doubt
some Padieals in this county would
like to make it appear that- the
Democrats polled illegal votes, in
order to cover up their own infa
mous acts. The Democracy arc
prepared for an mvestion on this
The Padical papers arc already
discussing various fat jobs the next
Legislature is to create for their
party favorites. They probably
do not remember the fact that
Woods' Administration left the
State bankrupt and many thou
sands of dollars in debt, and the
Democracy havo not yet caught
np with their predecessors' defi
ciencies. Don't spend tho money
of the people before 3-011 get it,
besides, remember that $50,000 is
all you can go in debt. Keep cool,
gentlemen, and don't be in a hurry
to divide what von have not no"t
A (loon One. A Padical
named Gleason, living in Lower
Jilolalla precinct, has for the two
last elections brought a half-breed
in his buggy to tho polls to vote
the Padical ticket. He did so on
on the :Jd, but after ho had got
him to the polls, some Democrat
rave the half-breed a Democratic
ticket, which he voted. It is prob-
ably unnecessary to say that the
half-breed had to walk home.
A Fact Pr.vtM.v D;:?c;uni:t. -Of the
payment by Secretary Robeson of the

in full by virtue of an Act of Congress,
Gov. Blair speaks pretty plainly in his re

It is not improbable that Rev. E. R.
Geary may carry oil the prize, there be

every probability that (he conservative
element will unite upon turn. Mr. Geary
is an honest and fearless advocate of
measures he beiieyes to be right and can
not be swerved from the path of duty by
mere partisan considerations. So the
supposed victory of the Grant pavty is
likely after all to prove a myth.

It is about time, remarks the New Or
leans J'iaiijune, that the American people
should put their boot on the snobbish
apeing of royalty, which has cropped ou.t
so offensively iu Washington under a
quasi military adminis'ration, who, be
cause he happens to be a President, sees
tit to illustrate his station by assuming
tbe role of an imperial father, in sending
his son, (who ought t3 be where his class
mates are, with hi. regiment.) with the
General-in-Chief to dance attendance on
him, to visit the different European courts,
as it is the customs with the sovereigns ol
the Old World. Now the country is re
galed with bulletins, reportiug the royal
progress of his daughter, a mere slip of
a school girl, who is being thrust under
royal noses as the equal In rank of prin
cesses of tho blood of royal, and fetid ac
cordingly. Our foreign friends are making
themselves ridiculous over Ihe young peo
ple, who have no more rank and no more
title to "the highest place" than any other
young Americans, their rank being as
ephemeral as an adminislration. and nei
ther inherited nor transmutable. The
people are getting sick of this foolishness.

of that county achieved a most
glorious triumph, electing their en

capture them through dissentions

Discovkuy of InoxOitK. Capt. Josrpk
Kellogg, who has ihe superintendence of
the work now being prosecuted by tho
Oswego and Tualatin River Canal Com
pany, placed on the table of the 0r"jn
inn office a specimen of iron ore which
has been taken out of the excavation for
the canal. The ore was taken from1 thd
canal about Midway between the upper
end of the Lake and the Tualatin rivtr.
It is, on a direct line from Oswego, a little
less than three miles. In the progress of
the work on the canal, after descending
to a dt pth of about IS inches, a red'sticky
clay wa.-j reached, which appeared as if it
had been subjected to tire, and indicated
by its character the presence of iron
The workmen supposed that it was noth
ing but an ordinary bed of red clay, and
continued to "skiiii''' along near the sur
face, in marking out the course of tbo
canal. Alter proceeding in this manner
for (he distance of neifr a h!" miie, tlm
handi went back to where work had jut
been begun and commenced to excavate
for the second course. Digging down
through the supposed clay they came to a
solid rock like substance, winch on exam
ination proved to be iron ore. The lode
was penetrated for a depth of two feet.
The ore continued to improve in richness
as the distance from ihe surface increAse.i.)
At ttie distance indicated frot the sur
face of the lode, there was no upfeearane
of the ore being exhausted. How much
deeper the lode extended, theie was no
determining. Capt. Kellogg prospectedQ
in different directions from the canal to
ascertain as far as possible the extent of
the vein, Ab.wnt the same distance from
the surface of the soil the same clay wai
found, and following that strata came the
lode. The specimen was broken from
noar the top of the vein, and consequent
ly is not so tich with tbe metal as if takea
from the center. It has been shown,0 a
competent gentlemen who has long been
connected with one of the leading found
ries of Portland and is conversant with
the different kinds of iro,n ia use. H
pronounces the ore of a richer quality
than similar ore taken from either tbo
Prosser or Patten lodes, which are both
contiguc.us to the works at Oswego. Tbo
canal Uads directly through the lode, and
when that work is completed the ore can
be shoveled into boats and transported
down the canal to the lake, across that
body of water, and through another canal
to the river, where the work3 now standf)
with but little trouble or expense.
