field by the wire-workers from Mult
nomah county, and if the ticket is
successful, it will be in the interest
of the same corporation which cost
this county thousands of dollars
four years ago by a remission of its
taxes. Do tiie people of this county
propose to be controlled by the Rad-
ical King of Portland in the future
as in the past ? Not o Radical ticket
for the past six years has been nom
inated in this county unless by the
consent and advise of the Portland
ring. The small politicians of this
county dare not do anything contra
ry to the Ring's dictation. Two
years ago Capt. Apperson was slaugh
tered bv them, and then because their
man Warner was left oat by the con
vention, they showed their power and
defeated Ramsby. They have ap
parently made p with the discor
dant elements this time, but they
propose to defeat such of these fel
lows jvho have dared to defy their
authority and power iu the past.
Are not the people of Clackamas
county capable of selecting their own
officers, independent of the dictation
of monopoly rings and their coin?
"We trust that they will prove that
they are by voting against every
Radical on the lung ticket. Let

The Radicals, what few there are
left of them in this place, have be
come desperate and within the past
week have tried all kinds of expedi
ents to keep people from leaving
their rottoL ship. They have manu
factured all manner of falsehoods
and still that does them no good.
But the most positive fact that they
are gone in is, that their snarling
little-brained followers are becoming
excited and losing their temper.
One of them, known as a surveying
member of the last Legislature, so
far forgot decency that lie called an
old man, gray with the weight of
years upon him, and yvhich should
have been a protection from insult,
a liar, on a point where there is plen
ty of room for difference of opinion.
They will try to keep up their sink
ing cause until after the election on
the fame bullying principle that
their chief, Jockey Tolnian, tried in
Tolman, when asked why Demo
cratic newspapers are not allowed to
lil for the Government printing,
stated that it was put down, so low
that it was not worth going after.
This is a barefaced falsehood. The
Government printing in this State,
outside of. Multnomah county, is
worth more than the legal printing
of Oregon. The Radicals keep up
three or four papers with this kind
of patronage, that would die in one
week were it taken from them.

favored organs of the Administration

cO The present State; Administration
brought back tiiis Sjun. May for trial
on these very steals, but a packed
Ratlical jury in Marion county allow
ed that they could !not bring him in
guilty because it Ivould ri fleet on
the party, henca ..tl A let him go, and
the Radical press It up a cry that
the Democratic aijrities were foil-
(! ed in theif echarges of corruiition un- i
. der Woods. What have thev to suv worU ou the county ? These are ques-;-
now in regard to this matter? Have ! ,lons tll:lt the Vllo would like to
thev sufficient proof now that steal- IKl'c mm ;i!:swer- lle 1S proimuiy
ing was going on under Woods? Do
the people want a repetition of such
an Administration? ,What better can
they expect if they elect Tolman with
Foster, a man who wrote : letter to
Slocum to keep the poll Looks out if
. Facts for the People to Read.
The Radical press of this State has
had much to say in regard to the
extortion practiced by the passage
of the litigant act. We have always
taken the ground that instead of be-
in"- a detriment, it serves as a protec
tion to litigants. In many counties
of the State there is but one paper,
and where there is but one, it fixes
the price for litigant printing and
prevents extortion. Resides, this
matter of competition is simply a
cry to catch votes. If the bill is
repealed (and we hope it will be)
and the Radicals carry this county,
the Kadical officials . and attorneys
will give their patronage their own
organ if they have one, und no bid
from us or any other person would
receive even a respectful hearing,
now is it with the Federal printing.
A number of the Radical organs are
kept up by that patronage. Why is
that not left open for competition?
Not much. That yvould be giving
aid and comfort to the enemy, as
Tolman thought when he used to
order his little patronage to be print
ed in the Sentinel. But to show
what the litigant prices and the for
mer rates were, yve have taken the
trouble to go to the records of the
county and select three advertise
ments to take as an illustration, and
we trust that wo shall be explicit
enough to convince the most obtuse
(even James M. Moore) that the lit
igant rates are lower than was for
merly charged in this city or even in
Portland, where there was competi
tion. The first advertisement we
take from a bill on file from the
OrerjonUin office, prior to tUe estab

Jsow, this avlvertisement makes
two squares, and is required to be
published six weeks. The On-gouian
bill is is'o'J. The litigant rates are
two dollars and fifty cents per square
for first insertion and one dollar for
each subsequent insertion. Thus, it
will be seen that this would amount
to clo. The former was payable,
according to the bill, in U. S. coin,
and the latter could be paid in cur
rence. So much for competition
The next we take from the Enti-:k-I'lilSE,
while published by Mr.
Ireland. lie appears to have been
more moderate than the Oreyoninn,
though he had no competition:
Look at the Situation.
Peter Faqnef f the Radical candi
date and all his family are boat
builders. Mr. Holladay owns a lino
of boats, and is constantly in need
of carpeuters. Two years ago his
I candidate for the Senate was the car
penter then in his employ. This
year he has nominated a man that
will probably be in his employ as
soon as the election is over, provided
he is elected, and before the next
Senatorial election he will in all
probability have fat steamboat con
tracts. Do the people of this coun
ty propose to send this man to the
State Senate to speculate on their
rights? Let them vote against Peter
Paquet if they do not propose to be
transferred to the Hipple-Mitchell-Holladay
ring. He will be the tool
of the corporation, and yvill vote and
do as they tell him. Vote. for Mr.
Ollield, an honest farmer, who can
and does make his living without
hanging around for office to specu
late on. Two years ago the people
of this county were represented by a
surveying-contract speculator. If
they elect Paquet, they yvill be rep
resented by a steamboat builder.
Look Out for Small Leaks.
Remember that the "Smelling Com
mittee" appointed by act of Legisla
ture for 1870, of which James F.
Amis, better known as CueRill Amis,
was an honored member, cost the
tax-payers of Oregon the snug little
sum of three thousand and thirty
eight dollars, for which the State
never received a cent's benefit, while
some of the Stale's creditors lost
heavily-, and some Democratic spec
ulators made handsome profits. The
result of that investigation cast a
cloud over the value of some of the
State warrants, and the consequence
was that holders sold them at a heavv
sacrifice, to speculators who received
payment in full on their warrants
with i n t e res t . Jon rual.
Yes, and remember that the
Smelling Committee" did disallow
SI 1,000 of the stealings of Woods,
May & Co., and that a Kadical Leg
islature forced the payment of the
same by embracing the same in the !
general appropriation bill. And re-
member, also, that ne of these bills
disallowed wtis for 700 for buggy j
hirii for Geo. L. Woods. The r.sser- !
The Radical speakers and press
have been very energetic in manu
facturing lies in regard to the school
lands. Even our Surveying contract
member, Lord Barin, has been try
ing to make capital in his limited
sphere on this score. In order to
give our readers the views entertain
ed by the last Radical Legislature in
regard to this matter, we api eud a
report made to the lower House
yvhich we trust will close the mouths
of these small liars and demagogues.
This report is signed by two Radi
cals, hoi. Hirsch, the present candi
date of the ring at Portland for the
State Senate, and Lord Barin, the
ex-speculator in surveying contracts
in the last Legislature. These fel
lows will not deny having made this
report. It is as follows:
Your committee entered upon
their duty and investigated the Land
Departments of the State under the
immediate charge of the Board of
Commissioners. From a thorough
examination your committee are en
abled to state that the Board have
adopted a perfect system by which
the labor of the offices is performed
in regular order, and the rights of
applicants are guarded in every par
ticular. Books have been opened
in which all applications are'eutercd,
maps procured, upon which these
entries are noted, books of sales
showing in detail and in full tire
transactions in each case, even to the
record of the deed. All rules and
regulations, instructions to agents
and decisions of the Board are made
matters of perfect record. The
Board has performed a very large
amount of work; has rendered
several important decisions and we
find our land interest an important
and carefully gimrded department of
the State. Your committee are of
the opinion that the labors of the
Board have been faithfully done ami
for the best i't.-rest of 'the State.
Your committee find that the sales
are correctly reported and the fund
protected accerding to law, und inter
est on notes promptly collected. Also
the expenses for services in the vari
ous departments were not only nec
essary bui economically made.'

Ihey Ought to Remember.
Our Radical friends who were so
badly defeated two- years ago ought
to remember that Jas. M. Frazer
N. W. Randall and Capt. J. T. Ap
person were candidates before the
convention of 1872, and because they
were defeated, they threw cold water
on the ticket and allowed Ramshy
and Paquet- to, bo most terribly
slaughtered in the contest, simply
because they had been defeated.
This same clique now kissed and
made up with Taquet by faltering
his vanity, (and they will be as ready
to swap him off this year as they
were two years ago) by patting him
on their ticket for the Senate, and
thereby make the slaughtered of two
years ago support their ticket. They
may tlo so, but it is asking a great
deal, aT'd is much more than human
nature generally grants, to expect
the men who they delighted to de
feat, then, to come to their assist-

Hon. J. ('.
The above certificate and note were
handed us for publication by the
"carpet-bag" candidate for the Leg
islature, and we do so by giving it to
the public verbatim. &c. As we
have never assailed him through
these columns, nor have wo heard of
others tloing so, there may be
something of which we have no
knowledge, as the carpct-bag candi
date seems to have deemed it essen
tial to get a certificate of his charac
ter. The certificate does not disa
vow any charge we have made against
him, and if it will convince anyone
that he is not a carpet-bagger, not
having been in the county two years
yet, we give him the benefit of it.
We have said but little of this indi
vidual, but now yvill pass him for
the present, by saying that he is not
only a carpet-bagger, but utterly
nu'it by either ability, education or
knowledge of the wants of our coun
ty for the legislature, and we feel
confident thai the people of Clacka
amas county will permit him to re
main quietly at home.
Spake Us. We are informed that
Peter Paquet has stated that his
present aspirations are only a step
ping stone for a higher position.

State Senate; next to Congress, and
in six years he expects to locate his

It is a yvell known fact that one of
the principal reasons why Judge
Upton was defeated for re-nomination
yvas the opposition to him in
this county. This opposition was
very strong and came more directly
from tle friends of W. Carey John
son, who coveted the position him
self more than any other. Johnson
even went so far as to declare that if
Upton should receive the nomination
h' would not support him, and it is
well known that said Johnson yvas
ready and willing to accept the noni
iuation from the Independents or
any ether source. Johnson's oppo
sition to Upton, we learn7 was so
strong that Judge Bonham had to
preside oer the last term of Court
here in order to try a case for one of
his clients, as Upton was prejudiced
against Johnson's client. Will Up
ton's friends vote for it man who
holds that kind of an opinion of his
integrity as Judge? and yvho had
openly declared that if Upton got
the nomination he would not support
him? We think not.

how he came to get it. Also how
