The Hadical Ticket.
The Radical .Convention met at
Salem, last Wednesday, at 1 o'clock,
and ratified the ticket which had
been previously nominated by the
Federal ofneo holders. The ticket
could not have been made any
weaker, and i;ot a man on it will be
elected. We have not time to com
ment on the platform this week.
For Congress, Dick Williams, a
lawyer of Portland, was put up for

lie is in nowise qualified for the
position and cannot write a message
to save his life. We will use the
closing opinion of the Orvjonim of
this nomination, which is as follows:

is a mere bagatelle compared to the

-elected, to write an intelligible
message to the Legislature. Exit
Grover, enter Tolman! No, thank

C. M. Foster, .an obscure individu

Dave G. Clark, of Corvallis, is tho

the ring will let him out. lie is
brother-in-law to Mr. Congle, and
Congle is the father-in-law of Dick
Williams. A little family arrange
ment it appears. Dave has always
been a Radical, and has been i
of prominance enough to get even a
nomination for constable even in his
own county. He will be done Brown

L. -aAI. Wane, the nominee for
State Printer, is a Job printer at
Salem, has no 'politics unless thev
pay, never has had, and we see ho
reason why those printers who have
worked for tho Radical party should
be set aside for him. But as he will
not be elected, it makes but little
difference who is nominated.
For District Judge, the Conven
tion gave us W. C. Johnson, of
Oregon City. . If ve had not re
ceived this information from olueial
source, we should have been under
the impression that it was an attempt
to perpetrate a ?ell on us. Byt this
is an actual fact, and while we feel
flattered that the convention has thus
thrift this honor on Oregon City, we
feel also equally satisfied that his de
feat iu the county will assure the
people that they don't want to have
such honors forced upon them. The
Ore'joniaa gives Mr. Johnson this
notice, and we will stop this time by
quoting it: "At last Hon. W. Carey
Johnson has got a nomination for
Judge of tho Fourth Judicial Dis
trict. " We give him joy on the occa-

fact, whether he is much more of a
man in respect of legal learning anil
ability, than the present incumbent,'
but we expect him to make a better
Judge, all things considered. But
what is the useof speculating on the
subject of his qualifications for an
office which he will never be called
upon to fill. Let us indulge the
pleasant fancy that he would prore a
very Marshall, since wu can do
so without the slightest danger of
having our fancies put to the test of
reality. The convention could have
selected a worse man or a better
for Judge, but it could hardly have
found a weaker candidate."

Take the ticket from head to foot,

From Kenton County.
We learn from Corvallis that tho
Independent movement is not as
complete a success as was hoped it
would be by the managers. The
Democrats don't go into the move
ment very readily under the lead of
Mr. Avery, and then to be presided
over by that ancient relic of Radi
calism, B. II. Diddle. They can't
stand that kind of a mixture. We
are informed that most of these
Democrats who took part in the In
dependent move in that county will
vote the Democratic State ticket.
Our letter states, "It is a remarkable
fact that all the old wire-pullers of
both parties a rein the new party."
It also states that the Radicals are
dissatisfied with their ticket, es
pecially with Gingles for Sheriff, in
troducer of the thieving fee bill in
the last Legislature, and Bash Wil
son for Clerk, the author of the bill.
It was thought for awhile that the
Democrats would have no show in
the county, but since the nominations

forthcoming Independent ticket,
Democrats are iu good hope, and
think that they will carry the county
says : "The Democrats are now
rid of the men who have al
ways been a curse to them, and the
true men of the party will be put
forth." It is understood that Mr.
Burnett will withdraw his name as
an independent candidate for Circuit
Judge, and accept the nomination
for Judge of Benton county. The
nomination of Judge Mosher and Mr
Fitch meets with genenal approval,
and both Democrats and Republican,
will vole for tht m. y They will un
doubtedly be elected. It is said that
the publisher of the Dj:no;rit was
busy all day last Saturday in stop
ping papers, as the Democrats refuse
to be led by Avery into the Inde
pendent wigwam, and if he does not
gratify his spite against Governor
Grover, won hi lead them into the
Radical or any other camp. We
kn ow that the Democrats of Benton
are made of true stuff, and personal
prejudice) will not control their
Disaffection. The Ralieal ticket
placed in nomination in this county
is creating general dissatisfaction,
and it is belioved by those who are
acquainted with the sentiment of the
people, that an independent ticket
would get more Republican support
than the ticket now in the field.
The members for the Legislature
seem to be particularly obnoxious,
as two of the fonr are nothing but
carpet-baggers, and the other two so
unfavorably known that the Repub
licans are actually ashamed of the
ticket. The overwhelming defeat of
Peter Paquet two years ago, is also
regarded by tho masses as an indiea-
! tou w,at will become of him this
j time. The attempt at sandwiching
m M'b'hell-Hippel supporters with t
anti-Mitehellites, has not had the
desired effect of harmonizing the
party. If the Democrats nominate
a good ticket, composed of men who
are identified with the prosperity of
the county, and who are know for
their political and moral integrity,
there can be no doubt as to the re
sult on the first Monday in June.
District Convention. The Peo
ples' District Convention meets at
Portland to-morrow for tho purpose
of placing in nomination a district

in the District will send delegates to
it. Ike oilices of Judge and Pros

m fact, they should be independent
of party iniiuences, and if this con
vention will nominate satisfactory
men, men known for t eir honesty
and ability, there is no reason why
they will not receive the support of

of the district. We hope that this
county will send delegates to the

Our Special Salem Correspondence.
SAwavApril 8th, 1874.,
Editor Entetfrisk, Dear Sir:
Salem has been on the alert for
several days past, in expectation of
the arrival, of many office seekers,
office holders and place hunters, who
compose the Radical State Conven
tion, for the purpose of ratifying the
nominees made by the Hippie part of
the Republican party, several weeks
ag-o. All the shining lights of that
element, those who carried the fa
mous Hippie endorsement resolution
through the Albany convention last
fall are here in all their power and
might, prepared for any emergency
that looks to the building up of the
Hippie portion of tho Radical party.
Custom House officers and attachees,
Postmasters, Surveror General, Sur
veying contractors and Chain-carri-ers
composed the greater part of the
convention, and are here to faithfully
serve their masters.
The Convention organized at one
o'clock P. M.,. to-day, by electing
John McCraeken of Portland, as tem

A Committee on Credentials was
then appointed, consisting of L. T.

ety, Win. M. Turner, also a U. S.
Deputy Surveyor, W. H. Odell, ex

reader, S. J. McCormiek and W. P.
Lord; end the Convention took a re
cess for one hour, in order that the
committee might have time to make
a report, which, on re-assembling of
the Convention, v;ts adopted with
minor amendments, increasing the
representation of certain counties.
The temporary officers of the Convention-,
ere then elected as the per
manent officers, and W. J. Snodgrass
was chosen as Assistant Secretary. A
committee of one from each county
was appointed to draft a platform:

all to lie totally unfit for the position,
which, I am happy to say, he will not
have the privilege to disgrace during
the next lour years. He is no talker
and cannot write a message.
C. M. Foster, of Baker county, was
nominated for Secretary of State,
just for form, as I do not think he
expects himself to be elected.
J). G. Clark, of Corvallis, is con
sidered a weak nomination for State
Treasurer and he will not have trou
ble to hunt up bondsmen, for they
will not bo needed this time. Mr.
R. Jacobs was also a candidate for
this position and received on 1st bal
lot do votes and then withdrew. He
thought that his Chinamen would be
too heavy a load for him to carry
through successfully. J. G. Wright
of this city received for this position
on 1st ballot 37, 2nd 4", .'5d oG votes,

We take the following from the
Eastern Oregon Tribune, published
at Pendleton, the home of the Dem
ocratic candidate for Congress :
Br a telegraphic dispatch received
last Friday morning, in this place,
from Umatilla Landing, tho citizens
of Pendleton learned that Col. La
Dow, our fellow townsman, had been
nominated for Congress by the Dem
ocratic State Convention then in ses
sion at Albany. Sundry of" our
citizens gave vent to their hilarious
feelings by burning considerable
powder on the banks of the Umatilla
Col. La Dow was born in Cayuga
county, New York, March IS, 1S2G,
he is, consequently, forty-eight years
of ago. In 18oJ Ids father emigrat
ed to Chicago, Illinois ; and in 1811
Col. LaDow commenced the study
of law, first with S. S. Jones, of St.
Charles, Illinois, and subsequently
with Col. Strode, of Woodstock, 111.
In IS.jO he was admitted to practice
in the Supreme Court of I bnois.
In the same year he moved to Wis
consin, and was subsequently elected
District Attorney for Waupaca coun
ty. In lSGo he moved to Waseca
county, Minnesota ; and in 18G7-S
he was elected a member of the
house of Representatives of the
State Legislature, overcoming a Re
publican majority of about live hun
dred and being pitted against a
strong and popular candidate of the
Republican party. In 1SG'.) he mov
ed to Umatilla county, Oregon, and
in 1S72 represented, this county iu
lower house of the Legislature : and
even strong Republicans admit
he was a very efficient member,
accomplished much for Umatilla
Col. La Dow, if elected, will make
an active and efficient Representative.
He is possessed of unbending integ
rity, and hence cannot be bought up
by designing and corrupt men. He
is a kind neighbor, and is universal
ly respected and beloved iu this com
munity. His private character is
above reproach. As a speaker he is
not considered brilliant and liowery;
but he makes his points distinctly
and clearly and sustains them by
facts and cogent reasoning based -on
them which is far better. He is
inclined to be a'little lazy ; but, like
all men of his build, is possessed of
great powers of endurance, 'and when
lie once becomes really wanned up
he is a very formidable antagonist
on the hustings. We predict that
every county in Eastern Oregon will
give him a good rousing majority.
