The Democratic State Platform.
The Democratic party of Oregon in
State convention assembled, proclaim
the following? propositions of political
faith ana action :
l. Unfaltering devotion to tho car
dinal principles of Republican crovern-
ment. as declared and put into practi
cal operation by the Fathers of the Re
2. Tho preservation or the general
government in the proper exercise of
tho powers delegated to it in the Con
stitution, carefully and strictly con
strued, and the maintenance, inviolate
of the several States of the Union in all
their rights, dignity and eaualitv. as
the most competent and reliable ad
ministrators of their own domestic con
cerns, and tho surest bulwark against
me lenaency toward a centralized des
3. Opposition to aggression by either
department of the government uron
the functions of any other and to the
exercise of federal authority of any of
the rights or powers reserved by the
constitution to the States respectively,
or lo me people.
4. That every attempt on the part of
tho Federal government to exercise
any powers not delegated to it, and es
pecially every interference by the srov-
erninent or anv of its departments.
with the local affairs of any State, or
with the rights of the people thereof
to choose their own representatives, is
an act of usurpation which should be
repudiated ana condemned by every
iriena oi consuiuuonai iioeriy.
5. Wedemand retrenchment, reform
and the most rigid economy in the ad
ministration oi every department ot
the covernmont ; the honest payment
of the debts, the sacred preservation of
the public laun ; strict accountability
of all officers, and the speedy and im
partial urruiiriiiiieiiL ui uu Houses ui
public trust before the tribunals of jus
tice ; a zealous care of the ri-'hts of
election by the people; tho absolute
subordination of tho military to the
civil authority. The equal and impar
tial administration ot the laws, ana tne
protection of the rnrhts of all : freedom
of religion, of the press, and of the
person, under protection ot the naoeas
corpus, and trial by juries impartially
6. We protest against tho burdens of
a protective tarin, as needless exactions
from a people already intolerably op
pressed bv a national debt, and we in
sist that the tariff be so regulated as to
provide only surhcient revenue lor an
economical administration ot the cov-
ernment, and not for the purpose of
enriching the tew at the expanse or the
many, or tostering one branch ot m
dust'ry to the detriment of another.
7. That the precious metals aro the
only basis of commercial values; that
an irredeemable paper currency is a
national curse, and we insist upon the
speedy return by the national govern
ment topecie payments.
8. The institution of the system of
national banks was' a fraud upon the
country and an injustice upon the la
boring classes, and we demand such
prudent legislation as will gradually
bring this vicious system to a close ;
that all currency which may be issued
shall be convertible into coin ujxm de
mand and be issued directly by the
9. That the treaty between the Unit
ed States and China shall be so modi
fied as to apply solely to commercial
10. That we condemn the party in
power, only for its contempt of constitu
tional obligations, but for extravagant
partisan and corrupt administration of
the federal government; for its reck
less expenditure and prolligate waste
of the people's money; for its oppres
sive, unjust and defective system of fi
nance and taxation; for tho perver
sion of the functions of the general gov
ernment to enrich the great corpora
tions at tho expense of the jeoplo; for
tho jobbery and frauds which have
brought reproach upon democratic in
stitutions; for the iniquities of the pro
tective system; for the curse of an in
convertible paper money ; for its dis
graceful diplomatic service and unfit
apiointmeiits and continuance in office
of incompetent and corrupt men at
homo and abroad; for its attempt to
pass an unconstitutional force bill, and
for a catalogue of other enormities
which have rendered that organization
offensive to and subversive of the lib
erties of a free jxjople.
11. That corporations are the crea
tures of law; their functions and priv
ileges are granted to subserve
the public interests, and when
they are not used for tho object of their
creation, out, ior purposes oi oppression
and extortion, we declare it to be the
right and duty of the legislative power
to regulate and control such corpora
lions for the public good.
l. t hat we disapprove ail measures
in tho interest of monopolies against
labor, and therefore we approve of the
declared principles and sympathies
with the avowed objects of the order
known as the Patrons of Husbandry,
and with those of all other orders hav
ing for their object, retrenchment and
reform in public alfairs and the social
advancement of the people.
13. That we are in favor of laboring
to secure judicious appropriations from
Congress for the purpose of improving
our harbors along the western and
northern boundaries of our State, and
we demand that our representatives in
Congress shall use their best efforts to
secure the aid of the general govern
ment for tho free navigation and im
provement of the Columbia river, by
tho construction of locks at the Cas
cades ; the improvement of tho Willam
ette and Coquill rivers; the construc
tion of the Portland, Dalles and Salt
Lake and Winnemueea Railroads, and
the early completion of the Oregon and
California Railroad from Roseburg to
the State line.
15. That the policy of the Republi
can party in dealing "with the Indian
tribes is impolitic and unwise ; that the
time has arrived when the few Indians
now occupying the Umatilla, Grande
Hondo and Siletz reservations should
be removed to some other locality, and
thus open up to settlement by the
whites some of tho richest portions of
15. That we invite the hearty co-operations
of all persons, whatever may
have been their past political affinities,
to unite with us in carrying out the
principles herein enunciated.
Important to Tax-Payer.
The County Assessor gives notice
in this issue to all tax-payers that the
board of equalization meets for the
correction of the tax list on Monday,
tho 30th inst. Persons who were
assessed prior to the Gth of May were
not allowed their indebtedness, and
to them it is a matter of importance
that they should attend and clim a
deduction for indebtedness, other
wise they may have considerable
trouble hereafter, and probably have
to pay on all their property and have
no deduction for debt. Let those
interested take warning and be on
hand when the time arrives. The
Assessor did his duty properly and
right, and it is no fault of his that
he took no account of debts prior
to the date mentioned, as he was
governed by the tax law ond did not
suppose the legality of the act would
be put in question. Timely notice
i3 now given, and should any suffer
by their own neglect, it is their own
fault, and they will have no one to
censure but themselves.

Tribune says that harvesting is th
order of the day among the farmers,
and many are glad to find the yield of

Owing to the recent spell of warm
weather in Douglass county, the grain
has matured very fast, and on ac
count of a scarcity of machinery to
harvest tne crop immediately, there
will be quite a loss to the farmers.

On last Tuesday Willamette Engine
Company, No. 1, of Portland, cele
brated their twenty-second anniver
sary. They had extended an invita
tion to Albany Engine Company to
participate with them, which was ac
cepted, and a large representation
went down on Tuesday. At the cars
they were met by the Portland de
partment and escorted to the Com
pany's house, where speeches of wel
come were made, and Mr. Burkhart,
President of the Linn County Agri
cultural Society, in behalf of the
society, presented the Company with
two beautiful silver plates, appropri
ately inscribed, which .were received
by Mr. W. S. Chapman, the foreman
of the Company, in an appropriate
reply. Miss Webber, of Albany,
then presented the Company with
two beautiful wreaths, one made by
her own hands. In the course of
her remarks, she stated that she had
the honor of being the first lady that
ever rode on an engine in Oregon,
and that was on Willamette No. 1.
She said that the wreaths were em
blematic of the affection of the fire
men of Albany to their brother fire
men of Portland, without beginning
and without end. In the afternoon
the companies paraded through the
principal streets of Portland, and
stopped at the Rink, where toasts
and shorfc addresses were had. In
the evening a grand ball came off,
and the twenty-second anniversary
of Willamatte EDgine Company No. 1
will long be remembered by all who
participated. It was a most'pleasant
and agreeable affair. The invited
guests were shown every attention
that they could desire, and the hos
pitality of the Portland boys knew
no bounds. Wo regret that space
will not admit of a more full notice,
but suffice it say, that it was a grand
affair and complete success.

Purify the Springs of 1,1 fe.
It is a sine qua non of health, that the
sources of vitality, "the springs of life,"
should bo free from contamination.
The fluids which by their action upon
tho food, transforms it into blood, and
the great vital nutriment itself, must
bo pure, if the muscles, the bones and
tho brain are to be properly nourished
and kept vigorous. To this end the
stomach, the liver, the bowels and the
kidne3's should perform uninterrupt
edly their various functions, since if
these aro disturbed the vital fluids
speedily Income vitiated. The best
nay, the only blood denurent which
purities them, by overcoming those
bodily irregularities which produce
mem, is nosteiier s fttomacn JJitters.
The principle upon which this salutary
alterative acts is as simple as it is philo
sophic. The origin of most diseases.
and invaribly those which alfect the or
gans abovo mentioned, is weakness
caused My msutlicient assimilation of
tho food. The Bitters speedily rectify
the cause of the dilficultv hv i
vigorous digestion, so that all parts of
At t : l a a. t . .
me iHiysiuin structure are supplied
with an abundance of pure, rich blood.
This increases the activity of tho dis
charging organs, and enables them to
throw oil the ellette matter, which
ranking m tho system, destroys health
This bodily refuse having been not rid
of, and perfect assimilation re-established,
there is nothing to prevent a
healthy and active performance ot the
various functions. Such being the rase
it is plain that the Bitters are not only
tne most reiiaoio stomacnic. but an
eradicant of those diseases of the
liver, bowels and kidneys which con
taminate the springs of life.
