The Future Issues.
The issues for future political
action are beginning to- shape them
selves into a plain and tangible form,
and there can be no question but
what the principal plank of the op
position to the Administration party
will be free trade and opposition to
the railroad and other gigantic mo
nopolies throughout the country. In
the "Western States, like Oregon and
California, the farmers are organiz
ing themselves into clubs against
monopolies and high tariffs of freight
and to this end the political parties
must shape their future. The farm
er and nieolvanics aro becoming ar
rayed against capital and corpora
tions, and if they will but act togeth
er in their demands thev can control
the destinies of either party in the
. future. They have organizations
throughout the "West which are now
looming up and becoming a power
which cannot be safely disregarded.
In the outset the farmers concerned
undertook to band themselves to
gether in secret societies or "Granges
of the Patrons of Husbandry,"
against railway monopolies and com
binations, and against the existing
high railway freights which eat up
the farmer's profits in the transpor
tation of Jiis produce to market.
These "Granges," lirsl organised in
' Minnesota and next adopted general
ly by the farmers of Illinois, are rap
idly spreading over all the North
western Qrtnd Southwestern Staffs.
For exr.mple twelve hundred of there
Granges-aro rejorted for Iowa, with
an aggregate membership of one
hundred thousand men, which is
half the popular vote- of the State al- j
readv secured, while, in "Wisconsin i
there are over a hundred Granges or- j
ganized, witf i every promise of
increase that will control the vote of j
the State. And so this general move- i
ment is spreading throughout the
corn, w heat, beef and port prodtie
ingcsniinunities of the Northwest.
The direct object in view by these
organizations is to cheapen freight
and transportation to the seaboard;
but free trade must inevitably be
blended with tliis issue ere long. The
burning of Chicago resulted in dem
onstrating to the people of fhe "West
that there is no protection for them
in our existing protective tarilT. After
the Chicago tire, and as a lift to that
unfortunate community in the re
building of their city, Congress for
it limited time, removed the duty on
their building materials. The con
sequence was the rebuilding of their
waste places with a rapidity which
astonished even themselves; but with
the restoration of those suspended
duties the mystery is solved. In
this experiment they have discovered
to an extent they had not imagined
could be possible, that their prosten
ty lies in free trade, or a purely rev
enue system of duties, and that what
i called the protection of home in
ilustry is to them a tax, a delusion
and a snare." This demonstrated to
the West that their only hope of pros
perity is free trade, which will create
a pressing necessity for cheap trans
portation. On these issues the Pern
oeratie part" can again control the
government. Its record against mo
nopolies is established, and on th
question of free tradef notwithstand
ing the peculiar circumstances of the
last campaign, itsn-cord is equally
plain. At least nine tenths of the
Democratic- party hold to the doc
trine of free trade and a revenue only
for the actual requirements of the
government. While there are pro
tectionists among its party members,
they area small handful and amount
to nothing in controlling its organi
zation. Let the farmers go on with
their organizations and demand these
two planks in the platforms of the
party they propose to support, and
if neither will submit to this demand
let them act independently and for
themselves, and they can have noth
ing to fear of the result. Let them
rnt loose from political demagogues
who have not dared to set themselves
in opposition to the moneyed power
of the land; and they will not need
monopolies and in favor of the pro
visions of our Constitution, which,
gives Congress the right to "regulate
commerce between the States." This
issue will go to the people, and only
in the election of a Congress pledged
to the work can we expect Congress
no to regulate our commerce between
the States as to give the people cheap
aud uniform rates of transportation.
If or.r farmers will act upon these
issues, oppressors w ill soon become
powerless in this country. Free
trade and equality between the cap-
ttaiibt una producers, mus
issue m tlie future.

Death of Chief Justice Chase.
The telegraph informs us of the
Chief Justice of
of the United
yir. Chase was
New Hampshire, and was in his sixty
fifth year of age. He has formerly
been one of the leading politicians of
the "West, and has held many 2romi
nent positions. He has been Senator
from Ohio, and was a member of that
body when such men as Calhoun,
Pent on, Cass, and other statesmen
graced the Chambers of Congress.
He was Secretary of the Treasury
during Lincoln's Adminit-.trat ion.nnd
on the death of Chief Justice Taney
he was appointed to that position.
He was a man of great legal ability,
honest in all his 2'"blie ami private
transactions. The nation has lost
one more of its brightest stars. ?Jr.
Chase had been a strong partisan up
to the time of his appointment to the
high position of Chief Justice,
since lie has occupied the position lie i
has won the admiration of the whole
Corruption I-Jvcrj where.
Forneys Fre; a Padical paper, says
that at least two of the thrirtecn com
missioners appointed by the Presi
dent to the Vienna Exposition had
purchased their places, and that oth
ers had gone there to advocate certain
special American interests. The air
is so nll of rumors of corruption
among our public men that the peo
ple have begun finally to doubt the
best, and where there is universal
suspicion there must be universal
criticism. Co n. Van Puren, the head
of the National Commission, is charg
ed with having recommended the
suspected subordinates. "We give
the story for what it is worth, with
the remark that Pennsylvania is im

The editor of tho Jacksonville Sen
tinel was Captain of the Volunteer
Company raised in Jackson county
on the breaking out of the Modoc
war, and is a llepublican. He has
the following to say in relation to
the charges of certain persons against
Mr. Quincv A. Prooks:
:r dutv to say
words in relation to the charges made
in the Portland Full, tin on the 2Wth
ult., against the Quartermaster's De
partment tf the 1st Prigade Oregon
Militia. As Mr. Prooks was noi in
the service, but only acting as clerk,
at the time the grievances were com
plained of occurred, of conrse it re
leases him from all responsibility.
We are aware that the boys suffered
for the want of clothing and food,
and that great credit is due them for
the manner in which they braved it
through, but we believe with two
thirds of them that it was no fault of
any officer in the Quartermaster's
Department. It was owing to the
bad condition of tne roads that these i
supplies were not furnished in time.
The State Election in Iowa, for
Governor, Legislature, Ire, takes
place in October. Parties are al
ready bestirring themselves in regard
to candidates, and various devices
r.re resorted to by old elect ioneerers
to capture the farmers vote, which
through the recent independent or
ganizations, has become a great po
litical power in the State. Tlie re
publicans have generally carried
Iowa by from thirty to fortv thous
and, and, in the opinion of some
Western papers, it is thought they
will probably make the farmers some
temporary concessions on the tarilV
question and attempt to either cajole
or dragoon them into the party ranks.
As the Chicago TrVeene says, "When
