At his Tricks Again.
D- P. Thompson, the leader of the Ilad
ical Brig-vie in this county has been try
ing very hard to get up a contest between
Senator Myers and Mr. Cochran, but his
Radical friends in the Senate don't appear
to believe his terrible stories about illegal
votes. i-c. cast for Mr. Myers. The cheek
of Dave Thompson is good; he worked,
almost day and night to secure Mr. Myers
defeat before the election, lie hired men
to leave Hie county: tried to buy votes
against him. nnd finally got a set of
Judges to bring in false returns, and yet
he f.,und that he was unable to defeat
hi:n. He got a locomotive to start np
from Portland with twenty men on it,
with instructions to vole the cattle
every precinct, and. be it said to the cred
it of the Jujges. they failed in getting in
but about four of these votes. After all
this work, and Mr. Myers getting a clear
maicriiv as counted bv the Radicals
themselves of seven, and if fairness and
i j j j
; honesty li;iu prevailed, bv about seventy
we should think Dave would give up his
efforts against a man who could to day
beat him before the people of Clackamas
county two to his one votes for any oflice
in the gift of the people. Dave is a good
fellow, but in poliucs tie has no limit to
trickery. Besides, he has an eye out for
Dave all the time, and generally makes
ii pay, or he don t take any stock in it.
His statements in regard to -illegal voting
by his opponents should be taken with
great allowance, but If he can get an
illegal vote he never lets it slide. That's
