I,et 18 Know the Truth.
O The Ifcrald bases the grounds of
its recent treachery- to the people of
Oregon, on the assertions that it
refused to go into a combination to
transfer the Democratic party to "Mr.
Corbett and a clique of dissatisfied
republicans, and charges that every
other Democratic paper has been
bought and gone into this combina
tion. This charge comes with bad
grace i:on a paper -whose owners
and editor have been "known for their
easy virtue in regard to strict party
organization. The Herald was the
first, and only Democratic paper in
Oregon which upheld and indorsed
the infamous Passive Policy,"
which led to the nomination of Horace
Greeley at Baltimore, and the over
whelming defeat of the Democratic
party last fall, and to a great extent
the disorganization of the party. It
was the organ of the clique which
3, 'Dolly Vardenized' "Multnomah coun
ty -last June, and as a result of such
deception, ju-t with an amparallelod
defeat, and Ins! us the .State. There
has been no soft issue presented by
. the ." sore-headed llcpubliVans " that
the Herald lias not eagerly espoused
and become a willing and energetic
advocate of. It has never been in
harmony with the Democracy of our
State since it fell iato the hands of
the present owners, and now when it
has go:ie to the arch-enemy of the
party, it attempts to create the im
pression that it alone possesses the
virtue of the great Democratic masses
and proclaims that it cannot be
bought. We have never charged the
IL-rahl editor of being bought, or
with any improper motives in going
over to Mr. II. d hula v. AVe have rd
ways believed that he naturally be
longed there, and that the course of
the Herald last spring, by its "Dolly
Varden " policy, did as much to
secure a victory for the Ilolladay
party as any llepubliean organ in the
State. We do not censure its former
editor, "Mr. Taylor, forihis. He was
comparatively a strange r in our State,
nnd doubtless acted on the advice
and counsel of others. But no man
can deny that the influence of the
Herald in that election tended to de
moralize instead of strengthening
the Democracy. These things aro
now passed, and we had hoped that
the lesson which was taught then
would be remembered and not again
repeated in the history of Oregon
As to the charge that the Demo
cratic press of the State, with the
exception of the virtuous ll-rald ed
itor and publishers, having been
'bought to transfer the parly to Sore
headed Ilepublicans' with "Mr.. Cor
bet t as the leader, all we have to sav
is that the information of such a pur
chase comes first from that virtuous
sheet, and if any such attempt has
been made, these "sore-headed 1 re
publicans" must have approached
the Herald man first as they suppos
ed that he would be thej least expense
to purchase. It was news to us when
we saw it announced in the Herald
that such attempt was made or to be
mule, and as all corrujd combina
tions for the3 demoralization of par
ties originate in Portland, we at first
thought that thereemight be some
truth in the assertion, and that the
virtuous editor of the Herald had
actually been tempted to go into such
a combination and strenuously refus
ed to be a party to the infamous act.
But when he charged that all the
other Democratic papers in the State
had either "been or might be seen
by Mr. Corbet t," we came to the con
clusion that the easy virtue of the
Herald Jiad le'i? ojferc:I for this very
purpose and rejected by those "sore
headed Republicans" the Herald men
tions. We deny any knowledge of
such attempt on the part of any one
and would assure the Herald and all
others concerned that we have "not
been seen," and further there is no
use for any one to come and "see us"
on such a subject. We have had
enough of party treachery within the
past tvfilve years. Ihe National Con
ventions have been a uniform cheat
upon the Democracy and by keeping
in th-3 minority the treacherous ele
ment in our State, the party lias been
true to the people. We are r.ot i'n
favor of any concessions to Republi
cans who are opposed to the ruling
faction in this State. They mav
come into the party and act with us;
but so far as relates to them neing
the leaders and the Democrats being
the tail, we most respectfully decline
the proposition. Our course is now
and always has been, that none bnt
true and tried Democrats should be
placed forwai'el as leaders and that
defeat is better and more honorable
with such, than a victory gained by
means of a sacrifice f f party honor
and principles. In order to train the
confidence of dissatisfied Republi
cans we must show by our own acts
that onto principles are of more im
portance than a temporary success
for office, and by showing this, suc
cess will sooner or later crown our
efforts. If the Herald, therefore, is
in possession of any plot by which
any eomlunation to transfer the De
mocracy to 'sore-headed Republicans"
we hope it will make an open and
b?!d cir;? of the- -Thole riiit'or. rui I
lit the people know what is going on.
But even this, if there -were" any truth
in the matter, does not justify the
Herald in going over to Mr. Holla
day. The Democracy can reject "Mr.
Corbett's corruption as well as they
can condemn and reject Mr. Holla
day's cause and the rejection of the
former does not necessitate the trans
fer of the party to the latter. Either
are dishonorable and deserve to be
condemned, and the Herald could
have rejected dishonorable propo
sitions on the one side without be
coming a traitor to the party on the
other. But if we are to be sold to
cither of these men, the people will
generally say let Corbett take us.
On the return home to Indiana of
ex- Vice President Colfax, a recep-
i tion was given him by his admirers.
; Oakes Ames also had a reception
! when he returned to his home in
Massachusetts, at which his admirers
declared their belief in his integrity
and honesty. Now either Colfax is
a liar and a speculator off the people
of this country, or Oakes Ames is a
rascal, a liar and a scoundrel. He
stated in plain tennis that Colfax had
: accepted Credit Mobilier stock and
dividends arising therefrom. This
Colfax denied. It was proven 071
; him and the checks produced which
had been drawn by Oakes Ames.
' Oakes Anus was found guilty of
bribing Congressmem, and yet we
find both these convicted public
, plunderers received by their respee
; live constituencies with honor when
! they return home. We must con
; elude that the masses of the people
i have become corrupt and that no
' matter what crime a man may com
; mit, so long as he is in possession
! of money, his fellow-citizens will
; give him honor. If the people will
. not rebuke such sco ndrolisni as has
been proved on both these public
', plunderers, there is little hope for a
; reformation in our government, and
i it seems to us that it is simply giv
ing a premium for corruption. We
next expect to hear that the people
i of Kansas have given Pomeroy and
i Caldwell a public reception. The
! latter resigned to keep from being
i expelled from the Senate. The form
er was detected in an attempt to buy
Srsi'i:Nri;r. In the last issue of
the Ac"" llorll- irr.-tf, Mrs. Duniway
gives notice that the paper will not
be published for a few months, and
that she proposes to take recreation,
and recuperate her exhausted facul
ties. While we materially, diller with
Mrs. Duniway on the question of
Womans's rights, we must give her
credit of beingaladyof fine abilities,
and were she to employ them in the
legitimate and proper manner, could
not fail to be of benefit to the coun
try and remunertive to herself.
She has labored hard and nobly in
a bad cause, and we hope she may
devote her talents in a cause which
shall not only prove more remunera
tive to her in the future, but be of
benefit to people generally.

with our present depressed treasury.
To-day if salt was worth two cents' r.

Don't Thin-ic It. We see that
some of our exchanges are uncharit
able enough to state that Mr. Holla
day has bought the Herald. We
don't know the price he could have
paid for it, as it was entirely value
less, and consequently we believe it
turned over to ldm from honest mo
tives, its editor naturally belonging
to him. If he paid anything for it"
we must say he displayed very poor

Plaimlealer has entered its fourth I

It has been apparent to the people
for a long time that the railroad in
fluence throughout the Union was
controlling the Government and dic
tating who should administer the
affairs of State. It appears that this
element is most powerful and has
become strong enough to defeat
even justice being administered to
those who willfully rob the people in
Credit Mobilier stock. A Washing
ton correspondent of a recent date,
speaking of this influence says:
" It was the railroad influence
at last that came to the help of
the erring brethren, and prevented
the expulsion of Brooks and Ames.
Their money paid for extenuating
editorials in the ('hroniele, and other
jiurchasal.de papers; their advocates
made ihe hotel corridors vocal with
justifications of the implicated; their
agents swarmed in the corridors and
cloak rooms of the House and Senate:
their retainers crowded the galleries;
their subtle, elastic, all pervading in
liuen.ee could be felt in the very atmosphere-.
Is this railroad power to end in a
revolution or a consolidated corrupt
power? The Legislature of Pennsyl
vania, New York and New Jersey are
nothing but adherents of Wall stree t,
clerks of Tom Scott or Vanderbilt,
Jay Gould or Horace Clark; and to
day a majority of the United States
Senate may be counted among the
assets of the great railroad corpora
tions. Fenton belongs to the Frie,
and Conkling to the New York Cen
tral. The Pennsylvania owns Cam
eron and Cameron, owns Scott. Lo
gan and Oglesby dare 11 0.111 ore elider
with the Illinois Central than does
Carpenter to disobey the Chicago
and Northwestern. The Baltimore
and Ohio lias a proprietary interest
in Yickers; the Northern Pacific runs
Ramsay and Windoni; Spencer and
Osborne and (iilbert and Cooper bo

and the Jacksonville ami Mobile;

Carolina are the creatures of the At
lantic and (inlf road; the Union Pa
cific claims Harlan and Allison. Tip

C. rant's Indian Policy.
President Grant's Indian policy,
indorsed by the Philadelphia plat
form and claimed to have been rati
fied by the popular voice at the Pres
idential election, is jhotogi-aphcd to
life by the Plot lie lie-ord. In a re
cent issue that journal tells the story
of " Indian Annuities, " which cost
the jieople millions of dollars as fol
lows: Responsible- parties from Pharan
agat Valley, among whom wo may
mention our old friend Char! oy
I loath, inform us that a few hundred
dollars would supply all the Indians
in North America with annuities of
the kind and quality they have receiv
ed in that section. A few bandanna
handkerchiefs, which cost about five
cents apiece, and coarse combs that
they have no more use for than an
Indian Agent has for the decalogue,
with a few other articles of equally
trilling value, constitute the sum
total of their annuities for this year.
Is this the 'humane course' by
which President Grant roposes to
bring the Indians under the benign
influences of education and civil iza-tionV-that
ho proposes to make them
" useful and productive members of
society?" In Heaven's name, if the
gove rnment wants to enrich certain
citizens, lot it make appropriations
for their benefit, directly, and not
add to the enormity of jdundering
the jmblic treasury by stealing at
the same time from untutored sav
ages, thus teaching them that swind
ling and duplicity are among the
art s 01 that civilization to which they
are asked to asj.j're.
The only way to insure measurable
justice to all concerned in this In
dian business is to have the entire
tribes registered, and deliver to each
individual his equitable share. reserv
ing for their future benefit what
miy be due absentees. And the
name of the tribe should be distinctly
woven into all the woolen goods de
livered, all of which should be in
spected and received by the ( war de
partment before being shipped, and
penalties jrovided for the punish
ment of any white man found with
such goods in his possession. This
would be si little protection to the
po or devils. It is safe to say the Indi
ans of South-eastern Nevada can, and
do. receive more in a we ek's begging
and scavenge ring in the back allies
and around the kitchens of Pioche,
and other towns, than they get from
the government, through its agents,
in a vear.
Bai Taste. Mrs. Duniway has
shown bad taste in giving publicity
to a scandal in regard tothoimpremor
conduct of a married man and woman
in the icinity of Lafayette, in her
two last issues. Had she kept quiet
about the matter the public would
have scarcely heard of it, and the
matter would have been hushed uj.
The party who she brings forward as
her informant is of too high charac
ter for voracity for her to impeach,
and the people generally think he
tells the truth about the matter in
