priTOTTCY HTT RANHROFT LIBRARY,
It is a remarkable fact, that not a
Republican journal or speaker in
Oregon has a word to say about the
enormous National debt that is accu
mulating with fearful rapidity. Not
a word explanatory of the fact that
since the close of the war the expen
ses in the maintainance of the Fed
etal Government has increased to
millions. Not a word is pronounced
against those expenditures outside
those consequent upon the war being
higher than they wer,e prior- to the
war, and still they have increased
beyond all proportion. The 'expen
ses of the navy which have doubled
and the army which have trebled
are received as matters of course as
the legitimate result of peace. The
war has ended, and the legacy of an
increasing National debt is bequeath
ed to the laborers and tax-payers of
the nation by this Republican party.
We present the case from ollicial iig
nres, and give the expenses of the
Government' since the war, outside
interest on national debt, drawbacks,
pensions and the cost of the army
and navy these national expenses
have been increased from ."jr':il,0I5,o58
up to i)l.(i8,r01 74 in 18(18, and
again to j?75.7Vl .125 05 in 187:5. The
actual appropriations for the fiscal
year 187:3-4, were :J05, 0(10,250. For
the ensuing fiscal year the estimates
presented to Congress were $13, 138,
18b' 82 increase upon that enormous
sum. If our Government had been
honestly administered since the war,
we would not be troubled with green
backs, specie payment would be re
sumed. Every man who has the best inter
est of his country at heart, should
well consider these facts before he
casts his vote for the party that is
loading the country down with the
increased debt. 3f'rcti-.
The School 3f:iey Swindlers.
The law requiring the a-uuual dis
tribution of the interest of the irre
ducible school fund, was passed in
1800; but strange as it may seem,
and the people certainly know it to
be a fact, that there was not a cent
received by the districts or counties
until 187J, the following year after
tiie present State Administration
went, into power. The question naf
urally is a:.ked, what was done with
the money? "Wevill tell you. The
Wood's administration speculated on
it. and po 'keted tl." money and then
left for Halt Rake, and finally one of
them was returned to be tried, but
we presume that under the Union
Ieagnu pledge, the Radical jury
which tried him had to let him go.

And now, says the Xcn-s, while
Ciovernor ( rover is being charged
witii every Regislative act without
regard to the. politics of the Legisla
ture authorizing it that has proven
unpopular with the people, and with
all the burdens of Portland's munici
pal government, we desire to ask
wnether or not he is to blame for the
act by which -'-, i( 10 were voted from
the treasury of that city into the
pocket of Mr. Richard Williams, the
Ring candidate for 'Congress, as an
attorney fee V Perhaps Mr. Williams,
whose theme, upon the stump is the
prevailing extravagance of the times,
will give this subject his attention.
It will be remembered that the city
has an attorney, or pretends to have,
at a salary of 1,800 per annum, and
tiiat Mr. Williams, for his services
in a single appeal case, which ought
to have been attended by the City
Attorney, if the man holding that
office is lit to hold it, was voted this
enormous sum. It may as well bo
remembered that one of the oldest
and most capable attorney's of this
city offered to take the case for ."(()
one-tenth of the Williams fee. A
more outrageous piece of profligaey
eannot be found in the records of
the Government, State or citv.
Court House Mobilier.
A correspondent from the northern
end of the county, asks us to remind
the voters of this county of the little
Court House Mobilier game played
four years ago, in which the present
Radical candidate for County Clerk
played a very prominent part, and by
which the county has been paying at
least two hundred dollars per year
IV ore than the rooms formerly occu
pied could have been had for. This
two hundred dollars per year would
amount in the four years past to just
tight hundred dollars. Charge this
sum to Radical manipulation.
Our correspondent states that a letter
was kept back until the present con
tract was entered into, in which
Dr. Thessing proposed to let his en
tire building for any sum the county
was willing to give, and that he
would have taken even two or three
hundred dollars.. - Do the people
want to re-elect the Court Houso
Washington, April 27, 1874.
The political results of the Presi
dent's veto are' likely to be of great
importance. The leadership of the
Senate is henceforth vested in Senator
Conkling, and the Republican party
is disturbed to its very centre by this
financial conflict. The question will
undoubtedly enter into the fall cam
paign, and some very marked changes
will be made in the personnel of the
next House of Representative. The
inflationists propose to try again and
this time to effect their object, if pos
sible, by means of a free banking sys
tem, by which the various National
Ranks will be authorized to inflate,
under certain restrictions. It appears
to be conceded that t: ere is to be no
addition to the four hundred millions
of greenback currency; but as the
South and West will insist on a re
distribution of the currency so as to
allow those sections to obtain their
share of the baud issue of the coun
try, it is thought the consequence
will bo the" introduction of a free
banking bill which will give the
country banks sufficient currency to
satisfy the demands of their business.
It is believed that a bill similar to
this can be framed which cannot be
vetoed by the President and which
even if vetoed can be passed by the
required two-thirds majority. The
only obstacle in the way is that Pres
ident Grant insists if any system of
free banking be inaugurated it be
coupled with some clause tending to
a resumption of specie payments.
On this subject, however, all the
leading Senators are very reticent,
though the Pacific Coast members
appear to be the
the people will
most confident that
port this action
of the President.
One of the most obvious results
should the President not have vetoed
the Finance Rill, would have been to
open the door to all sorts of extrava
gances in legislation. The power
that could have manufactured "mon
ey" at pleasure would not need to
be scrupulous in parting with it.
Evidence of this has been afforded
by the revival of the Centennial Ap
propriation Rill, en last 3Ionday,
with a better prospect of its being
passed than ever before. The Cen
tennial Roard of Finance have, during
the past week
subscription to their
stock, they do not however abandon
the more direct plan of seeming aid
and still announce that they rely on
Congress for assistance to the tune
of :5, 0(XM '00. This being the case
it is expected if they are unsuccess
ful in their present endeavor to re
cent) popular support, they will use
their disappointment as another and
more conclusive argument in favor
of a Government subsidy, and may
possibly succeed in persuading Con
gress to take a similar view of the
matter. It is hardly necessary to
add that so far from justifying a na
tional appropriation their failure
now to prove that the centennial
scheme has any hold on the public
feeling outside of Philadelphia would
deprive Congress of the faintest ves
tige of excuse for appropriating a
single dollar; that in fact a more un
warrantable levying of a tax on the
property of the nation, could hardly
bo perpetrated. Moreover, if it is
proper for Congress to give at all,
there is no reason for its stopjung
short at .ro.0!0,000, even if it was
ever supposed that it would be al
lowed to do so, the prosjiect, however,
is we shall soon hear this question
discussed both pro and con. as the
House have decided to devote the oth
of May to its consideration.
The Massachusetts legislature have
succeeded in electing a Senator in
the person of Mr. Wasburn, the
nresent Governor, a man with a de-
cided views about
perfectly sound on
tions. It is generally accepted with
satisfaction, but it required thirty
two ballots to prepare people for any
solution of the solemn problem, as it
was considered to be, of selecting a
successor to Charles Sumner. The
Simon-pure Rutlerites in the legisla
ture proved in the last analysis to be
small, and the Essex statesman ap
parently loses popularity and power
at home as he acquires it in Wash
ington. Nearly all the time of the Senate,
during the past week, has been de
voted to the discussion of the Louis
iana case. Mr. Rayard has offt-red
an amendment to Mr. Carpenter's
bill, ordering a new election, and it
is now pending a decision. It may
be as well to say first as last that it is
useless to refer to either bill or
amendment, for there is every indi
cation that the administration party
intend to maintain the

Our Special Wahiugton Letter.
Tel man as a IiObbjIst.
An ' exchange says the " Little
Joker," who is now playing the farce
of running for Governor on the Re
publican ticket has heretofore given
substantial proof of his devotion to
the interests of the Ilolladay -Hippie
Ring. He " has done more service
and they know it,"
for his nomination.
At the session
of the Legislature in 1870, Tolinan
was an iudustrious,
prominent member . of
Lobby" he couldn't be prominent
anywhere and he did his little best
to get Williams elected to the Senate
through the purchase of Derooerntic
votes. He was an active co-worker
in this dirty scheme with Ike Moores,
Geo. Cole and Dr. Loryea, those em
inent Republican leaders. Rut the
enterprise failed for the very ob
vious reason that there were no Dem
ocratic votes for sale. Again at the
session of 1872, Tolman was present
with the same disreputable crowd,
contributing according to his ability
to the election of another of Holla
day's attorneys to the Senate. This
time he and his confederates were
more successful; for it chanced that
there were " votes for sale" though
not Democratic ones. And there
was no lack of buyers; so the trade
was made without difficulty ; and that
public indecency, the election of
Mitchell, was consnmated. It was
by congenially small work of this
kind that the : Little Joker" endear
ed himself to the Ring and secured
the doubtful honor of his present
. n lApcfisivc Justice.
The luxury of a Radical Justice of
the Peace in Oregon City precinct is
very apparent. At each term of the
County Court we find more or less
bills against the county for some In
dian trials or other frivolous offences,
which could as well be settled as to
put the county to costs. At the last
term of Court two Indians had been
arrested S our months ago for stealing
a bottle of cider. One of them gave
bonds, the other has cost the county
about 100 for board, while he could
have been released on his own cog
nizance and the county saved that
much. Rut that is not the end. At
the trial, these Indians were set free
and the verdict of the jury was " not
guilty. The trial and expense at
tending this case does not, probably
amount to less than -100 to the coun
ty. The indid vidua! who might have
at least saved the tax-payers one-half
tins sum is a candidate on the Radi
cal ticnet for Countv Treasurer.. His
name is W. P. Ruins, and was for
merly hneriif. The people probably
will remember this at the polls next
A private letter to us from Salem,
under date of the 21st ult., gives us
the following in relation to Gov.
G rover's and Proxy Dolph's speeches
in that place:
" We had a' good time here last
Monday night in seeing the Govern
or skin Dolph in the discussion at
the Opera House. Dolph was the
worst used up man I ever saw. He
made the same old . charges against
the State Administration that he
made at the Radical ratification meet
ing at Portland the evening of the
Republican Convention. Governor
Grover was armed with the facts and
the record to prove them all false
which he did in the clearest manner.
As Dolph was forced from his false
hoods, the immense audience testifi
ed their appreciation of the Govern
or's convincing logic, by storms of
applause. Dolph was utterly dis
comfited and sneaked home very
early next morning like a whipped

highly delighted at Dolph's rout and

The Rev. Thos. Campbell, the In
dependent candidate for Governor,
has proved himself a liar, and when
a gentleman who professes to be a fol
lower of Christ, is found and proven
guilty of telling lies, his statements
should be taken with great allowance
thereafter. It appears that he denied
when he was charged with being a
political weather-cock and anything
for office, that his name had been us
ed by his consent in the Democratic
Convention for Superintendent of
Public Instruction. At Albany the
letters he had written to parties ask
ing their support were on hand, and
the Reverend Campbell took a hugh

In 1S70, Dick Williams canvassed
tha Second Judicial District against
John Kelsay for Judge, and in favor
of the late A. J. Thayer. We are
anxious to know if he will now
throw his influence against Kelsay,
who is again the nominee of the Re
publicans for Judge, and 'whether
Judge Kelsay will now use his influ

The Eugene Guard says that Got..

gives the following account' of the
speech made by the-Governor on the
occasion: "A crowd gathered in front
of the building,, and the Governor

speech some liftven- minutes in

this no-party cry was simply a snare

mental policy that shook the nation
when Gen. Jackson throttled that
monster of corruption and centraliz

Cikcclale Democratic Newspa
pers. The Examiner has frequent
ly urged upon Democrats through
out the country the inqiortance of
circulating local as well as metropo
lital Democrat journals. It is only
through such medium that the hon--,
est. but bigoted, members of . the
Radical party can learn the true con
dition of public affairs. The news
papers of the dominant party, of
course, represent everything on
their side in favorable light, and tha
nnthinking masses of its adherents
blindly support it in all its damna
ble corruption, until a preception of
the truth presented in . some. Demo
cratic journal causes the scales .to.
fall from their eyes. If Democrats
will yield a hearty support to their
party press. Radicalism will soon be
swept from the land. Kxmniner.
A Bad Example. In his reply to
Davenport, says the Times, we were
sorry to hear Dick Williams rehearse
a very vulgar story, which was neith
er witty norpointed, to the audience,
among whom were a number of la
dies and young persons, aud also to.
denounce Mr. Davenport as a liar..
In this denunciation, however, 3Ir.
Williams merely follows "the rery
bad example of Judge Tolman, who
repeatedly denounced Mr. Daven
port as a liar, and his author as a
liar. All this in the presence of
ladies and young persons. A very
bad example, indeed, and one we
hope will not be followed in our com
munity, although set by gentlemaa O
over sixty vears of age and a candi
date for Governor of Oregon. ';
Disgraceful. The Radical breth

Good Mex. Messrs. Joseph A.
Field s and A. J. Cason, the Demo
cratic nominees for County Commis
sioners, are both old citizens of this
county, and are men of unimpeach
able character. Roth possess good
busines qualifications, as their suc
cess in their own business affairs
amply proves. They are both trell-to-do
farmers, and if they are elected
the interests of the county will bo
faithfully and honestly guarded.
The facts and figures show that
the expenses of the Executive De
partment of our State, notwithstand
ing the extraordinary expenses of tho
last Legislature, are less under tho
present State Administration than
they were under the Woods-May
administration. This should be suf
ficient evidence against the lies which
are being circulated for electioneer
ing purposes by the Custom House
Rums, the Radical candidate for
County Treasurer, while he was
Sheriff, was allowed carriage hire
while he was collecting the taxes.
He charged it, and a Radical County
Court allowed it. He is now a can
didate for Treasurer, and the people
should remember his short comings
when he was Sheriff.
From all parts of the State we hear
cheering news as regards the pros
pects of the success of the Democratic
ticket. There i3 scarcely a doubt but
what the entire ticket will be elected.
Democrats should do their dnty as

fight for, and not let personal HKes
