A convention of Independents was
held in this city last Saturday, and a
ticket placed in the field, as follows:
Senator, W. A. Starkwater; Kepre
Hntatives. J. W. Cochran, Jos. Younr,
ii 0. Ramsbv, George Strickler; Shei
lif lieinan S liuck ; Clerk, .S. Jj. Ste
vens; Count V Commissioners. I,. D. C.
atourette, Isaac Frost; Treasurer,
l)'r II. VV. Iloss ; School Superintend
ent V. VV- Moreland; Assessor. John
Thomas; Coroner, Hiram Straight.
The a!ove ticket embraces some very
good and substantial men. Mr. Stark
water is known to 1 a man of good
abilities, and lias heretofore been a firm
Republican; Messrs. Cochran and
Ramsby are both Republicans and Mr.
Strickler has acted with the Demo
crats since 17'J, but is not : partisan.
Mr. JoxepU Youuj has been a Demo
crat. Tnc candidate for Sheriff. Mr.
II. S. Iiuck is a firm and reliable Re
publican, and has acted with that iarty
tip to within the past two weeks. Not
two weeks ai;o he was run and elected
bv that wrty as city Assessor and Col
lector, and we presume lie was in sym
pathy with that pnrty up to t ho time he
r -.vivid his nominaiion. ,. He is a i;ood
niin for Rcpublieaiis, who can't stand
fio Kinj n-.inineo, t vote for. Mr.
Stevens is also a Republican, he has
m my friends amon the Republicans
and will protiably ;et more votes than
ths Rin nominee- for that position.
The nominee lVr County Jude, Win.
Mtreland, was a candidate for llie same
po-titioii before the Democratic Conven
tion, and we believe him to lie too hii;h
minded to accept a nomination from
that or an y other source after having
participated in a former Convention
.in 1 beiny: defeated. He is probably
jIaced on thn ticket to catch Democrat
ic votes, and not with any expectation
t fleet him. The Coiiuty Commis
toners are both Rcpu! 1 irans, and Mr.
Is. D. Ijataurette is ridiiitr two horses,
lie professes to lio an Independent,
vt has received ami accepted the nom
ination of the Rim; Convention. lr.
Ross, t!u Independent nominee for
Treasurer has professed to Lie a Demo
crat in t!ie past. W. W. Moreland, tlie
nominee for School Superintendent, is
tho Democratic candidate for the same
3 offl-'O. He was called upon to explain
whether In- endorsed the movement or
not, when lie told the convention that
ho could not say that lie did. Where
upon quite a little stir was created, as
K:tion of the convention desired to
endorse the Radical nominee. A ballot
was taken finally, and Mr. Motel an I
wa ; endorn- l over his Radical oppo
nent, S. i. l'oK-. Mr. Thomas, the
nominee for Assessor, has liceu a Dem
ocrat, and has led, I the same ollice be
fore. Dr. Siraiirht, the nominee for
'tjroiier, is also the candidate m the
Democratic ticket and has tuisyni oat hy
with the movement. The Doctor is a
Democrat, and exnects to be elected iiis
.so -h. The nominations. .;i the whole,
are much better than the Radical ticket.
V. N t r. iit a l n m a N r. The entertiiin
incnt veiven at I'opt.-'s Hall last Thurs
d.iy evening for the benefit of the M.
K.Chureh.was a jrrand success. The hall
was well idled and everything passed
tr to the entire satisfaction of the au
dience. Tin; tableaux were beautiful,
mid some were indeed most excellent.
Tse opening chorus was well rendered.
Kil l in fact all the sinu;inir was rcceivcu
with applause. The "Three Jollv
lt,ys," sunir by Messrs. . and 1'. ll.
Hatch. W. Il.l'opeand Kodney Tomj-
xiis, was ricli. and eiictcil rotimls ot
Hp'4il.nse. W'e have not space to speak
i each sincer in particular, but will
Mtatethat they were all excellent. Tic
re.idinsC ijy Prof. Macruni was excel
lently rendered,- but the piece was cii
tiridy too lon for the occasion. The
re:. lim; by Mrs. Laltocquo was rich,
Aril she personated Miss Malony on
tho Chinese question to ierle.ctin, and
received rounds of applause The en
tertainment was a success in every par
ticular, and it is to bo repeated next
Thursday evening, witJi a change of
lri gr.iiiime, when we have no doubt a
f ii 11 house will I Hi in attendance. We
ild surest a slight ehamre in pr-
niue. Let there lie a little more ot
onue. Sentimentality is very tood
i change, hut too much ot if ire Ik

LTtainnient will meet all tastes.
' -iitEN'ADED. Governor Grover and
M. V. IJrown, Esq., candidate for State

City Rrass Rind at theClitF House last
Monday evening. The Governor was

addressed the crowd in a lew nppro-
priaiu reuiarKs, .saying mat me 1 emoc

witsi tlie Constitution and must end
witn it. He cited the f;i-t that the E.ist
rn State.s had but lately spoken in em
phatic tones as to its U-ing a living and
triumphant party in the nation. At Hie
cloio the, crowd gave three hearty
ctiterii for Gov. Grover and the Demo
cratic ticket. Mr. Itrown was called
for; ami made a few appropriate re
marks, and told the .story of the old

Coitxty Canvass The candidates
for county offices commenced the can
vass at Rock Creek last Tuesday. We
learn that Peter exhausted himself in
one hour and a half, and that he says
nothing even in that length of time.
Mr. lieatie holds him level, and knocks
the sand from under him.
Ok the seventeen voters who partici
pated in the Independent Convention
last Saturday, two were Democrats and
the rest Republicans. That is a fair
proportion of those who take Indepen
dent stock in this county.
The Sheriff informs us that he will
publish the delinquent tax list in a few
days and those who have not paid their
taxs wi.l do well to call and settle up,
as thev will thereby save costs.
Called. We had a call from Hon.
Richard Williams last Friday. Gov
ernor Grover, M. V. Drown, Esq.. and
J. C. Moreland, gave us calls last Mon
day. Pkofessiosa i.. Our readers will
find in this issue of the paper, Dr. Par

We trust the people of Clackamas
county will recollect that through the
Radical party, in 1870, the Railroad
Company managed to get rid of pay
ing its just proportion of taxes, and
that the county lost a large sum of
money by the transaction. While
Mr. 1'razcr was not the party diroet
ly at fault, it is well known that ho
was the chief of the Cour4 House
clique, and his counsel and advice
was gi-ncnilly taken. That ha was
indirectly counected with this job
in behalf of the R ailroad Company,
there is not the slightest doubt. The
same clique is now asking the voters
of this county to reinstate them
in their former positions, so that
thsy can serve their masters the
great corporations which hold the
Radical party in their hands, and
which has, nominated their present
ticket, and through whoso i ilnence
they expect to elect it. Let the vo
ters of Clackamas county remember
this fact on the lirst day of June,
and' place in office men who are with
the people and owe no allegieuce to
Is That (ood Authority t 1
In his speech at Portland, Gov.
Grover read a letter from Judge M.
P. Deady, one of the Codv.- Commis
sioners, in which Deady states that
he had examined the manuscript of
the new Code, and that the law in
controversy was unchanged and still
in force. Governor (haver said he
was content to rest his case on the
opinion of Judge Deady. We ap
prehend that the people will also be
willing to rest the case there, and
that Tohnan and his duped followers
will have to write themselves down
as donkeys, or keep on lying out of
the dirty scrape their would-be law
ful adviser got. them into. Tohnan
says he is a natural lawyer. Whv,
he ha 1 better put himself down as a
natural ass. 'lhat was the verdict
of every sensible man who heard
him in this place last Monday.
Our readers will remember that the
office of County Clerk was contested
in 18(58 by the Democratic candidate,
atd it will also be remembered that
J. M. Frazcr, the present Radical
canoioate toon to the mountains to
avoid legal service, and thussueceed
ed in holding on to the office for vir
tually four years. The Radical
Sheriff con teste.l Mr. Myers' election,
and in the trial it was shown that the
democrats had been swindled out of
enough votes to elect nearly their
entire ticket. Wjll the people en
dorse mis candidate and his acts at
the coming election.?
The Covrt Hoise Mobiliei:.
The voters of Clackamas county
will remember that it is the same
old clique of the Radical party which
asks their votes this year that was
ousted two years ago, and that they
are the same set who left Dr. Thess
mg's and John Myers' building be
cause they were not Radicals and
have paid $200 per year rent more
than Myers and Thessing offered to
take. The matter of renting a Court
House was a county matter, and it
was the duty of the Radicals to rent
where they could get tho cheapest
accommodations. If you want a rep
etition of this thing vote for the Rad
To the City Tax-Payees. We de
sire to publish a list of all tho city
tax-payers who paid their taxes in
coin last year, and for that purpose
w ould like to have all persons who
dhl so, leave their navies with the
amounts paid at this office. Wo are
in earnest in this matter, and if the
people will sustain us, we shall be
enabled to break up one of the snug
gest little Credit Mobilitrs that has
ever existed on a small scale. Leave
your names at this oiiice at once.
LiItle Rock, May 11. Baxter
this evening in response to tho Prp-
idents telegram with regard to an
adjournment of the Legislature con
sented and stated that he would dis
band his forces in proportion as
Brooks did; that the latter must
leave the State House, deposit the
State arms and retire as far west of
the State House as he himself was
east of R Thirty-five members of
iiio legislature endorsed the reply.
Baxter to-day received COO reinforce
ments, lie revoked his mrl mo
tion of martial law as concerned the
legislature, notifying all persons
not to interfere with them while in
session. The U. S. troops stand in
readiness to prevent any collision
Washington-, May 11, The Attorney-General,
to-night telegraphed to
Brooks that the President considered
Baxter's proposition concerning
Brooks' retiring from the State
House and depositing State arms
entirely reasonable and that his in
terests demanded his acceptance.

"True as CJorqiel.'
" We are reliably informed that
Judge Sliattuck, of Portland, has
declared that he will not support the
Radical ticket. His reason, as we
learn, is, that the Radicals are deter
mined to force negro and Chinese
children in the public schools, and
he declares that he will not send his
children to such schools, and that
this is creating a tax upon him and
other citizens who will not receive
any benefits from the school money
making a tax without representation
It is gratifying to note the fact that
such men as Judge Sliattuck have
become disgusted with Radicals and
their infamous mongrel policy. He
is a worthy, honorable and much
respected gentleman, having occu
pied the the position of one of the
Supreme Judges of our State, and

The Radical Secretary.
Our readers will probably be some
what astonished to see any party
guilty of placing in nomination a
man who would be guilty of defraud
ing them out of their sovereignty.
But such is the case, as the following
letter, written by C. M. Foster, Rad
ical candidate for Secretary of State
will testify. We trust that every
honest man will vote against this
rascal, as he is utterly unfit for the
high position he seeks:
Auburn May 5th 18GG.
FiiiEXD Slocum: The object of
this communication is to impress
you with the importance of bringing
the poli-uoous ami election returns
yourself from Pleasant Valley and
Camp Alford precincts.
Slater was here last night, and
told some of his Democratic friends
that Pleasant Valley precinct would
give a majority of twenty for the
Democracy. If such should be the
case, and you are unable to get a
larger majority at Camp Alford, do
not bring the returns in until the
ten days shall have elapsed.
Slocum, be sure and make ar
rangements with the Judges of elec
tion in Pleasant Valley precinct to
bring the election returns yourself.
Don t let the Judges give them to
any other party but yourself, but be
sure you have a Union majority be
fore you make 3"our appearance with
the returns. The election returns
will be opened and canvassed on the
11th of June, so you can govern your
self accordingly. We do not want to
bo beaten by votes in the precincts
you are waiting upon, and if those
precincts' go against us you know
what course to pursue. Do the best
for the cause and trust in providence.
Write what the prospects are as
soon as you can ascertain.
Yours, sincerely, Foster.
How Tolmax Received the News.
Late last Thursday evening, weary
with the fatigues of his day's jour
ney, and chilled by the night air,
Judge Tolman arrived in Salem.
Desiring to procure something to
warm the inner man, the Judge with
a party of friends dropped into
Plum's. While waiting for their
several decoctions of Plum's best,
some one handed the Judge a copy
of the Oregonian containing the
news of his nomination by the Tem
perance Convention, at Portland,
for Governor. He read the article
through and then exclaimed in lan
guage by no means chaste or ele
gant. "Je-sus Christ! That will
lose me every Dutch vote in the
State!" The Judge then swallowed
his cocktail, retired for the night,
sadder, no doubt, over the loss of so
many "Dutch votes" for his ticket
Will, he Explain ? Will Broker
Apperson explain to the people the
part he took in tho importing and
exporting business while he was
Captain of one of Ren llolladay's
steamboats? Will he tejl them how
many fellows he took out of Yamhill
on letters signed by W. A. McPher
son, then a Radical editor at McMin
ville? Will he tell them whether he
ever received letters from parties
which read as follows: "See that the
bearer goes to Salem, and we will
make it all right." And then anoth
er to Major Rerry, then Superintend
ent of the Penitentiary, which read
as follows: " Pay the bearer 5 and
charge to account." These are ques
tions the people will probably like
to have answered before they vote
for the R-idical candidate for Sheriff.

Our Dormant Knertries.
Our bodies ar: not as vigorous nor our
minds as clear ns they might be. This re
mark is true of at least two-thirds of civil
ized society, and of these two-thirds prob
ably one-half is laboring under Infirmities
of a character likely to shorten the lives of
the sufferers. This is a melancholy exhibit
and furnishes abundant food for reflection.
Can the evil be mitigated? It can. Lack
of vitalitv is the primary cause of most ot
the physical and mental suffering to which
we are subjected, and th'-rofore a vitaliz
ing medical agent is t he remedj' required.
Is there such a medicine? There is. Hos
tetter's Stomach Hitters will rouse and en
ergize the mind and body when the life
power of the svsteni is in a comparatively
dormant State. The languid, feeble, de
sponding invalid is not aware of the latent
energies" that underlies his debility. He
thinks there is no element of vigor left in
his frame, when the fact is that his phys
ical capabilities are merely asleep and
onlv require waking up. Let him stimu
late and tone his animal machinery and
endow it with nw motive power, through
the agency of this incomparable invigo
rant, and h" will soon feel like a new man.
or rather like a man who has received a
new lease of life, aod the requisite h-alth

in this condition, from whatever cause,

strengthens the body, clears the mind and
