ell jjSaper.preteiiiU to gice artvii-o against
any attempt to "set up" things lor nuy
particular man. This is to bo the game
nil round with thosu who are .ictually
setting things up. No Immpkin can
lay that on the people o Clackamas.
When rncn are venal au! corrupt
themselves, tlsey generally suspect oth
ers. Our artiela to which the above
refers had no reference to any particu
lar person or persons, anil none but the
moat vicious and depraved in the pool
of corruptioTi would have taken it in
uny other light than a timely warning
against improper meaua being used by
those who may feel inclined to tamper
with the will of the people. When the
Ore'joni ui designates the ExTt:u:M:i.H!; as
a Mitchell paper, it asserts that which
is false. It ia neither vditeheli's, Heolfs
nor any other man's organ. It is He
publican in principle arid works for the
success of tlio party, irropeeMvo of
individual preferences. J3:it it is not of
tho class of K n bli can papers to which
the Orcjou-iia belongs. Its editor and
proprietor has r.owr had a Federal oiueo
ftud been removed for just aud proper
causes. lie has no personal malice to
gratify agair.pt any leading llepublioan,
and is as ready to support ono as he is
tho other, so long as such HepuMican
is tho choice of a majority of the Re
publican voters. This is our condition.
But how is it with the Orcjoi-lun man
who intimates that we are engaged in
"setting up" delegations and conven
tions in the interest of Senator Aliteh
cll ? He is a decapitated autocrat from
tho party, and has plainly intimated, if
not positively assorted, .that unless he
and his clique are allowed to dictate to
Republicans of Oregon who are to re
ceive office and position, he will heir
and go with the opponents. His Republi
canism is purely of a personal character,
jind his success dowends son l.v on his
ability to "f-et up" the conventions, lie J
is a chronic corruptiouist, Rokoinian
and demagogue. Ilo assume:; the vir
tues of a saint, while '.viLhin he is full of
corruption and Irec-ption. lie sees all
his own evil character in those who are
Lis superiors in evcrr walk of life, and
is willing to bend the en pliant knee to
the power which will give him place,
lie is a creature for an owner only.
Not content with having brought dis
grace and dishonor on the party he pro
fesses to support, ho now, unless it will
submit to his ambitions, works to de
stroy it. lie knows no higher honor
than to gratify his personal revenge on
those whose blave ho was until they
found him to be an inrato as well as a
knave, and igncminiously kicked him
out. This is a partial picture of the
creat moral and I u, test editor of the
Orcnonhta. We might give him more
"but for tho present thh; will sufliee.
Instead of ur, attempting to mis", cad
or betray anv one, this "bumpkin" of

against which we protested, and is try

Wo have counseled peace and har
mony among the Republican papers.
0 Wo still desire it, but we are not the
slave of any party or man to submit to
such wanton aud uncalled for insinua
tions as contained in tho above extract.
Wo wish the success of the Republican
party and to that cud we propose to
labor, but we do net think it advisable
nor prudent for the Republicans of
Oregon to follow tho lead of a man who
has openly avowed his determination to
support tho Democracy if he does not
get his own way. Yvre want the Repub
licans to honestly and fairly place their
men iu the Held, and be they Jliichell
or anti-Mitchell men, or any other men,
if they aro the honest choice of the
2arty, wo will give them our support.
Will the "bumpkin" head of tho Ore
gouiaa pledge himself in the same cause?
Kot by any means. Unless he succeeds
in his personal crusade against certain
jnembcrs of the party, he has declared
tLat he will go over to the opponents
rather than that they should be success
ful. While wo have never mamaieu a
i reference for any man or set of men,
as long as they were good smd trust
worthy Republicans, the above insinua
tion comes with a bad grace from one
who has declared that if he cannot rule
the party he will cause its 1 nia. We
aro ready to csteed the hand of fellow
ship to even this political prostitute if
he will honestly and like a true Repub
lican support the party and its nominc.es,
be thev his friends or his foes. But
wo are not willicar to allow such as him
to dictate to the party what it must do
to gain his pleasure. Even defeat would
be preferable to a dishonest surrender
to such a man. lie would soon bring
ruin and disgrace upon the party.
Allowing for the absence of Senator
Morton (counting Senator David Davis,
who has been placed on the standing
committees of the Senate as a Republi
can), the United States Senate when it

ocrats. If Senator Morton should die
and his place be tilled by a Democrat,
tho three contested seats from Louisiana
and South Carolina bo given to the
Democrats and Senator Patterson be

the Republicans will have one majority.

We learn that there is a vast proper
tiou of the late sov.u grain in all the
valley counties but more notably from
Marion aud Polk south that is shrivel
ed by rust and unfit for bread uses. It
is calculated this calamity will deduct
at least a million bushels from the mer
chantable yield cf the va'Iey. Ware
house men idiould bestow t-xira care in
assorting grain, for a little of the shriv
eled, mixed with the good will cause
tho rejection of the whole lot; po far,
but little has been brought to tins mar
ket, and we do not think the farmers of
Clackamas will bo sufferers near in pro
portion to those in the counties south
of us. The protracted ruins of tho last
ten days have also been instrumental in
destroying the little remainder of the

of the presumed or attributed re

tho ground when wo remember that tho

jects, and that the Servian and Bulgar
ian, like the brigand Greeks, have more
of the "barbarian, and outlaw in their
composition than any characteristics
pertaining to Christians. It is simply
a war for conquest of territory, and has
nothing of a religions crusade about

The -Tew Oilcans True declares that
when Northern Democratic Conventions
pass resolutions against subsidies, and
especially against thc:-e which cover
grants of internal improvements in the
South, the Northern Democrats might
as well understand that their candidates
for the Speakership will be opposed by
a solid South. Pnrthermore, tho meas
ures of States whose conventions have
adopted such resolutions will encounter
the earne antagonism. This begins ihc
breach in the Democracy. Northern
Democrats aro only playing their old
game, using tho political strength of
the South to abstract chestnuts from
the fire. Tho South says, We want the
aid of the government in making need
ed improvements. The Northern Dem
ocrats declare, as a party utterance, that
such aid must not be extended. At the
same time it wards tho alliance of the
people whom it snubs to oppose the
workings of a Republican administration
which has done more for tho South in
six months than tie Northern Democrats
ever cared to do. It is a pretty phase
cf affairs and worth a long study.

The war in Lurope has bv its fluctu
ating character proven a very cood
barometer of the wheat market. If the
Russians are victorious, wheat advances
if the Turks win the victory, wheat re
cedes. This is occasioned by the nerv
ous state of English feeling over the
subject, and illustrate.-, the traditional
hankering for the same prize the Rus
sians have an eye upon.
Whenever Constantinople is in dan
ger or threatened by Russian successes,
the war feeling advances breadstnhs'
and vice versa. Whenever Constanti

Britannia will bo there to see, and will

she therefore keeps a virrilant lookout

London", Oct. 1. Another week
shows but little eharere at the scat of
war. As the capture of Richmond was
indispensable la the collapse of the re
bellion, so the capture of Plevna ap
pear to be indispensable to the success
of tho Russian cvmiain, while tho
Russian oiiict-rs who stubbornly main
tain its siege arc confident that i", will
fall into their hands. The better opin
ion is that this result must follow from
Turkish weakness rather than from
Russian strength. There are many in
dications that the Sultan lias already
put forth liis supreme effort and has
nothing further in reserve, and yet his
three armies are not aide to take tho
ofiensive at the same time and so crush
the invader, and that t he Turkish plan
of tho campaign has utterly failed of
execution and it ; hour of success is
now believed to have passed.
Bulgaria is utterly exhausted of army
supplies. This is clearly disclosed by
tho retreat of Mehernet AH beyond
Black Lacvs for want -f supplies. If
this be his condition, notwithstanding
his nearness to tho great depots of
Shumhi and Rutschnk and liis condi
tion at Yarba and Danube railroad,
Sulemao and Osrua Pasha must be in
still worse straits. Russia grasps the
situation and will hold to its present
military positions in expectation of a
sudden collapse of an enemy whose
military resources are already so strain
ed that the catstrophe looked for may
occur at any moment.

CANCER CAN BE CtUlEP
Cancer has from time Immemorial been
great scourge to the human race, and is now
oecoming the greater. For many years it has
In-en held by the medical profession, and gen
erally believed by the people, that Cancer is
incurable ; that once its roots take hold upon
a victim, there is no chance for a sufferer to
escajK? a lingering and terribledeath ; a death
surrounded by all that is disgusting and hor
rible, not only to the sufferer, but to his
friends. Happily this fell dest rover need no.
longer be feared. Dr. IL T. Bond, jf Phiia-.
delphia.a well known physician, of hinre ex
perience, has for four years devoted himself
to the special study and treatment of Cancer,
and the result of his experience is his dis?
covery for the radical cure of Cancer, without
the use of either knife, caustic or plasters,
and without pain.
The majority of persons are greatly deceived
in regard to the first symptoms and appear"
a nee of this most dreaued disease, considering
it painful from the commencement. This is
R sad mistake, carrying thousands to nn un
timely grave. In most cases there is little or
no pain until the disease is far advanced
The only symptoms for many months, and
even for years, are occasionally a stingins,
darting, stabbing, shooting, smarting; Uch;
ing, burning, crawling or creeping sensation,
and some cases not any or these. If
malady is growing worse instead ol
better, it is conclusive evidence it is of
malignant character, and demands imme
diate attention. If yon have a branny scaly,
warty appearance, with an occasional break
ing out of these upon the face, lip or nose, or
any other portion of the skin, attended with
any of the above .symptoms, oi a sensation ol
a tly being on it, or a hair tickling it, is cer
tain evidence it is Cancer, and there should
o no delay in using Dr. Bond's treatment.
Life is too valuable to be tampered with.
Dr. Bond's treatment consists of an "Anti
dote" that is applied locally: this at once ar
rest s the growt h of the Cancer, and by chemi;
cal action neutralizes its malignity, render
ing it harmless and changing it to a simpl;
sore, which nature, assisted by constitutional
remedies, soon heals fwhen the skin is an-,
broken, nr.d the Cancer is a hard tumor, the
Antidote does not make an open sore, but re
moves it by absorption). In connection witn
the Antidote is used the Specific, taken in
ternally. This tones up the general
strengthens the patient, purifies the blood
and eliminates the poison from the system
Dr. Bond's Antidote contains neither caustic
nor poison, and can be applied to the mon
delicate tissues of the body without injury
and therefore is the only remedy that can do
used in internal Cancer, such as cancer oi in?
stomach, cancer of the womb, etc. Dr. Bonu
remedies, with full directions for successtu
treatment will be sent to any part of in
Pamphlets and full part ienlars tree.
