A Italanrc .sheet.
The Bulletin has much to say
about the police system of Portland
costing the; people so much. Now.
suppose we just balance the account
in this way: That paper is down on
the Governor for vetoing the $300,
000 bill. Suppose he had signed that
bill, and put that amount in Holla
tlay's pockets, the people of Port
land would have had to pay it. We
will give Mr. Grover credit, there
fore, with saving this sum to the cit
izens of Portland, and charge him
with the Police expenses, even at the
Bulled it s lignres, which, we are told,
nre exaggerated. It is said that un
der the former system it cost $0,000
per annum; now, it is claimed, that
it costs $'.;2,005, a difference of $21,
000 per annum. 7ot taking into con
sideration the increased service, the
improved peace, etc., this would
make, in four years, the sum of $St,
000. The account would then stand:
Gov. ( rover, f'r.. bv veto of
irlla.l:iy' Subsidy bill J 300,000
Sinio, I .. bv not vetoing the
Police . S-l.coo
H i! tree in favor of drover. . . 21(5.000
T o trouble with the Bulletin is
that it would have got some of the
$300,000, while- it gets nothing out of
the$St,000. It certainly looks hypo
critical for the Bulletin to censure
Gov. Grover for not vetoing the Po
lice bill, wuen it is known that it
v.-as the champion of the $:JOO,000
r;rab. The people of Portland have
lva.1 a complete system of Police since
the t-:iaet:uent of t!;e law, anil yet
they on-J a debt of $210,000 to the
Govt ran- for vetoing the $300,000
grab. Is the Bulletin acting the hypo
crite in this matter, or will it dare to
endorse the Executive when he saves
the people $300,000 as freely as it
censures him when they, on their
own petition, are required to sustain
an improved system of police? But
that is not ail. The Governor did
not veto the bill on his own option,
lie was beseeehed to do so by the
most prominent citizens and tax-payers
of Portland. The author of the
first bill, Mr. J. B. Congle, who is
now a delegate to the Radical State
Convention, was not satisfied to let
the petition take its course, but in
person, to our own"knowledge, called
on the Governor and urged him to
withhold his signature. Yet Mr.
Congle is endorsed by the Bulletin
and the Governor is censured. Oh!
how consistent Radicalism shows
itself when brought-to light, The
tax-payers of Portland are responsi
ble for the veto, as they asked the
Governor to do so. Besides, the bill
before the" last Legislature, and
which the Governor vetoed, wns just
tho same as the present in force, with
the exception that the Council was to
select the Commissioners, and hence
there is no reason why the expenses
would not have been as much as thev
are now. Tliis police bill is a clap
trap and humbug, and the people
Great Knthtsiasm. Tho news of
the result of the Democratic Con

thusiasm throughout Eastern Or
egon. In Baker City, the home of

O celebrated the event by speeches and
c firing of salutes. The Bed I!o:k Dem
ocrat of the 2."th nit., says: '"The
news was received of tho action of
the Convention at Albany, by the
Saturday stage, and when it was an
nounced that Geo. A. EaDow and
Hon. A. II. Brown had been nomina
ted on the ticket, the wildest joy pre
vailed. E.nly in the evening the
crowd began to congregate on front

Republican County Tickets
The Radical County Convention,
which met in this city last Saturday,
placed in nomination a full county
ticket. The ticket is mainly com
posed of the disaffected elements of
the party, and- the paying offices are
monopolized by the town. The head
of the lambs for Democratic slaught
er, is Peter (not the Great), but
Paquet, for State Senator. He has
been a chronic office seeker ever
since he entertained the idea that he
was a statesman, and never had his
ambition satisfied, until 1870, when
he was elected to the Legislature.
In that body he made no flutter with
his great abilities. His weighty form
occupied the comfortable seat from
day to day, and he drew his regular
salary. He did introduce an incom
prehensible liquor bill, whichjwe
believe, never even got to a se'emd
reading, or was even printed. This,
we think, was his only effort, and it
being nipped in the bud, Peter got
discouraged and subsided for the re
mainder of the session. In 1872 he
received the nomination for County
Clerk, and was defeated by an over
whelming majority. He is again up
for slaughter, and will not fail to be
accommodated. He belongs to the
Hippie-Mitchell ring, having last
Fall voted for the endorsement of
The candidates for the Legislature
are regarded as even inferior to those
placed in nomination two years ago.
We know none of them, personally,
and therefore have to take the say so
of others. R. V. Short is an old citi
zen of thiscouuty, and is well enough
known to be easily beaten. Mr. W.
II. Lake has been here about four
years, and is but little known to the
general public. The other two are
carpet-baggers, neither of them hav
Lee is a man of .family, and has them

herewith him, we believe; but Mr.
Foster has his family in Iowa. The
election of these two men would be
a sad commentary on our county,
and would place us, on a small scale,
in the same category w ith the South
ern States. In short, the represent
ative ticket is an insult to the intel
ligence of our people, and there is
not a man on it that should be elect
ed, and will not- They are all Hip-pel-Mitcaell
men, and sustained tin.
resolution last Fall.
The candidate for Sheriff, Capt. J.
T. Appersou, is a broker in this city,
a clever gentleman, and all that, bu;
the load piled upon him with the re
mainder of the ticket, will leave him
behind se-eral votes of an election
Besides, he was one of the few who
refused to obey the dictates of Mitch
ell, last Fall, and on his return from
the St.de Convention, refused to sup
port the Mitchell-Hippel candidate,
and has ever since been regarded
with suspicion by the faithful. He
was a candidate before the Conven
tion two years ago for the same of
fice, and failing to get it, his friends
"siuched" the successful candidate,
and he will find hiniself in the same
fix this time.
Mr. J. M. Frazer is well known in
this county. He belongs to town,
and has been out of office just two
years. He has a hankering to get
back again. If Mr. Frazer's quali
fications were such as to tit him for
that position, he would be a good,

his qualifications are sadly defective,
as the records of the Courts plainly
N. W. Randall, the nominee for
County Judge, is a citizen of this
town, and at present employed as
teacher in the Canemah District. He
belongs to tho faithful, and that is
enough to defeat him. For County
Commissioners they have nominated
Messrs. LD. C. Latourette and C.
O. Boynton. The first named gen
tleman is a good citizen and a farm
er, and we know nothing derogatory
to him, aside from his being associa
ted with very bad company; and he
Las drawn out of the regular organi
zation and signed the Independent
call for this county. Boynton is well
enough known to the people of Clack
amas to insure his defeat. Where he
is best known, there is he the most
W. P Burns, of this city, ex
Sheriff, is tho nomineo for County
Treasurer. He is also too well known
to have any show for an election.
Mr. Rowley, the candidate for As
sessor, is a farmer, and will receive
a very light vote, as ho cannot get
the support of his own neighbor
hood. S. D. Tope, the candidate for
School Superintendent, is a practical
teacher, has good qualifications for
the position, but lie will be defeated
with the rest of the ticket.
Dr. J. W. Xorris, the nominee for
Coroner, is a sound and true Demo
crat, of the old school, and is there
fore, the best man on the ticket, and
will undoubtedly be elected.
Mr. Campbell is renominated for
County Surveyor, a position he has
held for the past four years; and as
the entire ticket will be defeated he
will go with the rest. The ticket is
a weak one, and the Democracv have
only to get out their best men to de
feat it by an overwhelming majority.
The Coos Bay Xeics has entered

A Radical Device.
A friend from Yamhill informs us
that the Independents in that county
nominated a Radical ticket clear
through, with one siugle exception.
And that those Democrats who were
beguiled into the movement, are dis
gusted and prspase to-run a straight
ticket. That is what those Demo
crats who are aiding them may ex
pect from the "Independent State
movement." It is only a trap to
catch them, and then tho Ring Ilad
ieals and the soreheads will unite
and elect the Radicals on both tick-
ets, and let the Democrats be swap
ped off and defeated. Democrats
have a good ticket to vote for, and a
splendid platform, and there i so
good reason why they should go out
side the organization for any wrongs
they may imagine as existing within
the party. The Democratic party
has maintained its organization thro'
the past twelve years, under all ad
versity, and the evils brought upon
us are the work of Radicals. De
mocracy has nothing to be ashamed
of, but Radicalism has; and hence
there is no use for honest Democrats
to join with those who have brought
our country to its present deplorable
condition. But they should maintain
their organization", abide by the ex
pressed will of a majority, and elect
good, honest, and trustworthy men
to office. If the principles of the De
mocracy have been good in the past,
they are good now. But, says one,
I don't like this or that man.' What
objection can there be urged to any
of the nominees of the party? They
are all true Democrats, honest men,
and will carry out the wishes of the
party as expressed in the platform.
Principles, not men, is a Democratic
maxim, and when Radicalism has
nearly destroyed our country, and a
few of the most active leaders of that
party having been discarded for va
rious reasons, put up a plea that all
parties are corrupt, (when in truth
ihey are the very ones that made
them so), and claim the confidence
.f Democrats, they assume altogeth
er too much on the ignorance of the
masses of the people. The Demo
cratic party has done nothing of
which any voter need be ashamed,
and the evils complained of are the
result of Radicalism, for which De
mocrats are not responsible. Let all
true Democrats adhere to their or
ganization and vote the straight tick
et. Fight for tho principles of the
ounders of our Government, and let
all untried and visionary schemes be
worked out by those who profess to
have become disgusted with the out
rages and dishonesty of the Radical
iNSTiiVCTKD. It appears that our
L-ity has an attorney who has judi
cial aspirations. We have long
known that the said Carey was terri
bly opposed to Judge Upton, but
did not once think that there were
selfish motives behind this opposi
tion. The cat is out, however, and
if his ambition be gratified by the
Radical Convention, ho may look for
a Waterloo defeat before the people,
Upton is bad enough, but Johnson
would not improve the matter much
to speak of. Tho following resolu
tion was passed, we do not know
whether as a joke or in earnest, by
the Radical County Convention last
liesolvcrf, That tho Clackamas
County Delegates to the St to Con
vention are hereby instructed to use
their influence to secure the nomina
tion of tiie Hon. W. Carey Johnson
for District Judge.
Imi'oktant Docxmknt. The an
nual report of tho Superintendent
of Public Instruction gives some
very interesting figures in regard to
our educational matters. From it
we glean the following facts : Male
teachers receive an average of $17 54
and females $13 70, throughout the
State, per month. The whole num
ber of pupils between the ages of 4.
and 20 years, in the public schools
of the State, is 38,070, of whom 18,
010 are females. The total amount of
money raised from all sources for
tho maintenance of public schools,
is $154,913. The total value of
school houses, and other school
property, is $322,000, in round num
bers. The Independents. So far as we
have noticed the -nominations made
by the 'Independents,' they have in
variably selected old broken down
politicians, who have been rejected
by their respective parties. They will
find out on the day of election that
the people will give them their final
rejection, and permit them to live in
retirement for the rest of their exist
ence. If the State ticket is made up
in accordance with the county tick
ets, it will be no material obstacle in

Our Special Washington Letter.
Washington, March 1G, 1874.
Three months cf Congressional
session are at an end but the topics
of discussion are still the old ones:
the currency, the frauking privilege,
cheap transportation, Louisiana;, anil
the Centennial. After a lengthy tie
bate in the Senate on the Centennial,
the general conclusion is that not
withstanding the activity of the
Fennsylvanians, the President's Pro
clamation, the efforts of Messrs.
Cameron and Scott, and some of the
Middle States Senators, the Centen
nial, as an international affair, lias
most probably received its quietus.
Its friends, however, have by no
means given up the battle. Last
week the debate' reverted to Mr.
Frelinghuysen's amendment appro
priating $3,000,000 in aid of theenter
prise. The tone of the debate was
adverse to its passage. The consti
tutionality of thus appropriating the
public mone-; the inexpediency of
doing so, even if the power was vest
ed in the hands of Congress, and the
clandestine manner in which the af
fair has been managed, were all
again united against it, and on Fri
day Mr. F's. amendment was defeat
ed. Mr. Stockton withdrew his
amendment giving Mr. Frelinghuy
sen's three millions to the Centen
nial as an 'international' exhibition,
and the bill is referred to the Com
mittee on Appropriations, without
instructions. As it stands at present
it merely requests the President to
extend nn invitation to the various
States and Territories to participate
in a commemmorativc exhibition.
The discussion has been unusually
spirited throughout, several Sena
tors making use of very forcible lan
guage. Among others the late Mr.
Sumner astonished everybody by a
light and trilling comparison. The
corporation" of Philadelplfta, he said,
were greedy. It was the national
government that should control the
business if the fair was intended to
be a World's Fair; but of this the
Philadelphia corporators would not
listen to a word. They desire to ab
sorb everything. In that respect they
appeared to him to resemble the Si
berian bear, who jumped on the horse
and ate with such vigor and voracity
that he ate himself into the harness
and was soon drawing thesledall by
h i nisei f. This created much excite
ment among tho members of the
press in Philadelphia, and the result
is that Mr. Mr. Sumner's great ser
vices in the cause of freedom, fur the
time being, are nowhere.
In pursnauco of the intention to
make the 4th of March more memo
rable as i historic day, by having the
new Chief Justice sworn in and com
mence the performance of the duties
of his office, the short but interest
ing ceremonies attending the inau
guration of Chief Justice Waite were
performed on Wednesday. Long in
advance of tho hour of openingcourt
the Supreme Court chamber was well
filled with people, among whom were
many persons of distinction. At pre
cisely 12 o'clock, the crier, as usual,
announced the approach of the llon
orahle, the Associate Justice of the
Supreme Court, whereupon they en
tered the Chamber, clot lied in their
long black robes, Mr. Waite bring
ing up the rear. The Justices took
their customary neat. Mr. Waite
seating himself near the ('Jerk of the
Court. The Court being opened in
the usual manner, and commission
of the Chief .1 ustice being read, Mr.
Waite, previous to entering, having
signed the "iron-clad"' oath, in the
presence of tho eight Associate Jus
tices, now arr.se and in a clear and
distict tone of voice, read the oath of
office, subscribing Lis name to which,
lie passed around the desk and as
cended to t he bene!) , w here he took
the vacant seat of the Chief Justice,
the Associate Judges standing and
bowing as he assumed his chair of
honor. . This concluded t he ceremo
nies. The customary routine of busi
ness was taken up, and Judge Field
began the delivery of an opinion
upon an appealed case. By this time
the court room was literally packed
with people, ami even up to the hour
of adjournment the chamber was
thronged with persons all eager to
obtain a look at the successor of
Chase, and see how he bore himself
in his new and exalted position.
It was but one week ago yester
day, that the news was received in
this city of the death of Ex-President
Millard Fillmore, following
which announcement the Depart
ments received their usual dress of
mourning, customary on such occa
sions, on the death of a prominent
official. Hardly had this cloud of
sorrow vanished from the minds of
the inhabitants of the National Cap
ital, when we were startled by the
death of another prominent official,
and this time not at a distance but
in our midst, in the person of Charles
P. Sumner. Senator from Massa
chusetts. This learne.l statesman
died March 11, of a disease of the
heart. His loss is all tho greater to
the commnnity on account of its ex
treme suddenness. Thirteen hours
previous to his death he was in his
accustomed seat in the Senate Cham
ber, and though he took no part in
the business of the session, appear
ed to be in his usual health. Expe
riencing a slight pain in the region
of the heart, he repaired to his home
where he gradually became worse
until he expired. The body was em
balmed and lay in state for some
time time at tho rotunda of the Cap
itol, where it is estimated it was
viewed by over 10,000 people. The
remains were then placed in a Pull
man Palace car, and escorted by the
Sergeant-at-Arms and Joint Com
mittee of the Senate and House, con
veyed to Boston.
The Senator disposes of an estate
by will, valued at $ltt.()00. The
principal legatees are his sister, Mrs.
Julia Hastings of San Francisco. II.

Among the Oregonians who yet re
main in this city, there are Col. J.
W. Johnson and Hon. D. P.Thomp
son. The former appears to be deep
ly immersed in the claim business in
the departments, and will probably
remain with us a considerable length
of time. But it is not so with the
latter, who contemplates leaving for
Oregon about the 1st of April. He
has secured several contracts for
himself, but has not been as success
ful as he anticipated on his arrival.
He has also obtained several for Ben
Hoi lad ay, for whom he has made
bids on the greater portion of the
Pacific Coast. R. D. M.
Our Radical friends alf over the
State have passed resolutions con
demning the outrageous fee bill pass
ed by the last Legislature. Their
inconsistency is very apparent when
it is known that both the author of i
the bill and the. member who intro
duced it in the Legislature are now
nominated by a Radical convention.
The bill was gotten up by B. W.
Wilson, Clerk of Benton county,
ana introduced in the House by
James Gingles. The former has re
cently been re-nominated for Clerk,
and the latter is placed in nomina
tion for the office of Sheriff. So it
would appear that the Radicals,
while they profess hostility to the
bill actually endorsed the author
and its principal advocate and intro
ducer in the House. The barefaced
hypocrisy of the Radicals in claim
ing that they are in favor of its re
peal and desire retrenchment, is very
apparent, and no man, unless he be
a fool, will be deceived by their pro
fesoions. The people of Benton
should rememlier these two individ
uals and all others who are on ticket
with them. The acts of men are a
better index what tfiev would do
titan professions ma-de on paper to
Ol'KNINO OF TIIE CAMPAIGN. Gov.
Grover opened the campaign last
Thursday at Albany, where he made
an able and telling speech to a large
audience. On Saturday he spoke at
Portland, on which occasion the Oro
Fino Hall was crowded to its utmost
capacity. J udging from the manner
the opposition organs have been
bus- since his speech in that place,
we are safe in saying that he made
an effective argument againts their
groundless charges. The Governor
will make it warm for his traducers
before the election is over, and he
being the main object of their wrath,
knowing that they cannot use him,
and he having vetoed a bill to pre
vent their master from taking $300
000 out of the pockets of the tax
payers of Portland, they will do
their best to defeat him. But the
people know him to be an honest
and faithful Executive, and will re
elect him, notwithstanding the mo
nopolists dislike it.
Disath of David Logan. Hon.
David Logan, well known through
out the State, died at his residence
near McMinnville, last Friday, and
was buried at Salem on Sunday.
Mr. Logan was a man -of extraordi
nary abilities, and was at times the
leader of the lb-publican party. He
never was successful, for ho was
nobody's man, bi t independent and
fearless. He received the nomina
tion of his party for Congress three
times, but was each time defeated.
He v ns a 1 ading member at the bar,
and a warm hearted, generous man.
He had his faults, but we all have
them. There are few men who had
more warm and devoted friends, and
who ulways fouud in him the ele
ments of a gentleman. Peace to his
R EiiV ct a nt. T he Jackson v ille
Sentinel asserts that we crave the
Democratic State ticket a "reluctant
support." This is false. We hear
tily endorse the ticket and platform,
and did so in the very first issue of
the paper after the Convention. We
did not have time to write a lengthy
aiticlo upon this question in the
issue of 20th, from tho fact that we
did not return home until Friday
morning at 0 o'clock, and having the
platform and proceedings- to set up
and forced to go to press by noon on
Friday to meet the mails, we simply
stated that tho Convention had done
its work well, etc. We are proud of
the ticket and declare it to bo worthy
the support of every Domocrat.
Random Charges. The Republi.
can press and talkers, declare that
Governor Grover is dishonest, but
invariably fail to bring a solitary
direct accusation against him.
When we consider how his Radical
predecessor robbed the State, the
people should be careful how they
trust that party again. Let them
specify tho charges of corruption
they make. What has he done by
which he has been the pecuniary
gainer? Give the proof. This they
cannot, and hence make a general
false declaration against a man who
has done his duty honestly .and faith
fully. Radicals expect to lie them
selves into power again, and then
rob tho people.
" Discordant Elements." A del
egate to the late Radical Convention
who remonstrated against votiDg for
Peter Paquet, was beseached by an
outsider to vote for him by declaring
" for God's sake vote for him as we
must get on the ticket all the discor
dant elements in the party." They
succeeded in getting on the ticket
all the "discordant elements," and
also in getting the voters to be very
" discordant," and when they see the
result on the first Monday in June,
they will conclude that the people
do not endorse " discordant nomina
tions." The ticket is indeed a com
bination of discord, and the Repub
lican voters will prove it at the polls
by refusing to vote for it.

The flashes of excitement produced by
he stimulants in ordinary use, are follow
ed by a reaction that is al.vays more or
less injurious. Just, as the darkness, illu.
minated ior a moment by the lightning' --1

ever after t be flash loverr so the mental
gloom ami j'hy.vical debility that vanish
temporarily und?r the influence of a dram,
return with a ten-fold intensity whei ths
first transient elfect ceases. Yet ihyi
cians habitually prescribe the liquors of
