OREGON CUT, THURSDAY, JISE 6. 1578.
Result of the Election.
The election in Clackamas county
Las resulted iu the choice of the whole
Republican ticket from top to bottom
by various majorities, ns our table will
exhibit. Our county has thus fully
demonstrate! her fidelity to tho Re
publican party, anil it only needs an
honest and efficient administration to
keep the ranks well closed and our as
cendency certain; to this e. d we warn
the newly elected to remember that j
they have besides the gift of the office, j
the trust committed to them to keep j
the party name untarnished for future j
victories that the- line of succession
may remain unbroken through the
long hereafter of the coming years.
We regret to- have to announce the
probable defeat of Parson Ilines to
Coagress and the return of a Demo
cratic majority to the State Legislature
whereby we lose a United States Sena
tor, which assures a control by the
Democracy of that branch of Congress.
This is very unfortunate and will prove
a cause for regret fo those who have
unwittingly lent themselves to the am
bition of the states rights Democracy,
who are sure "to foment trouble again
as they have heretofore in thru' ting
this pernicious doctrine which the
last war it was presumed had trodden
out again before the country. The
spectacle of a Republican State return
ing a Democratic Senator and Repre
sentative is one which the Ike Moores,
Scotts and their confreres in Clacka
mas and other countieswho have
abetted this treason will long be sorry
for and against whom it will always bo
While we feel , unusual pride at the
vote of Multnomah and Clackamas and
of our success on the State ticket, the
fact that we have lost the State Legis
lature and the Congressmen gives the
substantial fruits of the victory to the
Democracy, hence we feel about -'arf
and arf" over the general result.
' We have another Indian war on our
hands, caused by the hostile attitude of
the Bannocks in the Boise country in
Idiho Territory. Gen. . Howard has
departed for the scene of conflict with
his customary" intrepidity and dash,
taking the companies at Vancouver and
Fort Stephens, and will soon confront
them with the regular soldiery. Trouble
of this character must be often antici
pated in such sections of tho country
where the white man is encroaching
and beginning to crowd the native. So
a railroad through that section of coun
try would be the best peace meaBure the
Government could-adopt to keep the
Indians in subjection, and we think the
people will begin to understand in time
that aid to railroads in such sections of
tho country should always be ungrudgingly-
given. The last Idaho Indian
war cost the Government nearly two
millions of dollars. This will doubt
less cost as much, and the expenditure
would have been unnecessary and un
called for had there been railroad com
munication through the Tyrritory in
fested. In the face of these facts we
see the people opposed to giving the
public lands, and the Democracy com
mitted to the reduction of the standing
army both blunders to be i-epre-hended.
There is cause for congratulation that
the " Crow Ticket " in Portland was so
badly used up. It was an unholy com
bination of the O.S.N. Co., the Ore
gonian. crowd and tho Democracy, and
received such a signal rebuke at the
polls, that it is not likely tho elements
will ever again so openly coalesce ic
their efforts for victory. Plenty of
money was spent by the combination
the O. S. N. Co. contributing S5000 to
the fund. The Oregonian, like an old
ghoul, will hardly claim credit for the
result in Moltooinah, while it will smile
grimly and patronizingly at our loss cf
the Legislature in other counties be
yond the reach of its influence....
At the hour of going to press from
the latest returns received, it seems
probable that we havo succeeded in
electing the Republican State, ticket in
its entirety, by a wide range from
overwhelmingly large; to the' uncom
fortably close of majorities. Brown's
career has come to a dishonored end;
his defeat is a stern rebuke to the
"ring" that has plunged Oregon in
euch hopeless debt, and- we hope will
remind the incoming officials of the
vengeance of the jeople against wrong-vloing-in-office
for their proper edfiica
tion. - " '

Our Standing Army.
With the strangest and most unao
countable fatuity, the Democracy use
every means to reduce the maximum of
our standing army from 23,000 to 20,
000 men. Neither judgment nor sense
is used in actuating them thus. The
greater number is now too small, to say
nothing oS the necessity of froops in
our fortifications to guard public pro
perty, and keen up even a shabby show
of national dignity. Another great and
growing necessity for troops exists in
in the rapidlygrowing communal socie
ties forming in all the large cities, and
whose theories and professions bor
rowed from conspirators against mon
aichial government in Europe, incite
attacks on all forms of law, order and
property in this country, and combines
at once the rowdy, the tramp and the
viciously poverty stricken into a co
hesive mass, whose ultimate teachings
lead up to public plunder, and a level
ing of all classes and conditions to a
common plane.no higher than their own
groveling interests. This revolution
ary and rabid idea must he encountered
with shot and shell in the streets of
our principal cities, and-! crushed out
I with an iron hand, or elsWtue lives and
property of citizens will be adminis
tered over by the proletarians, and the
scenes of the French revolution will be
enacted in our midst.
Recollection of the riots last Sum
mer need only be called to mind to sub
stantiate it, and to entitle tlm to the
consideration of the., thoughtful.
To meet this growing emergency, troops
under the strict discipline of the army
are required. The fancy regiments and
State organizations aie not to be count
ed on to resist the mob spirit, and an
nihilate it. They have generally been
educated in that part of modern warfare
which has taught them how to success
fully oJiarge the lager beer cellar, and
to dash on an capture the camp-kettle,
but beyond this and the pardonable
pride and strut which fills the home
guards when the ladies gaze on their
warlike accoutrements, they have little
of the knowledge or admiration of
" grim-visajed war." The discipline
of the regular soldier makes him effect
ive to enforce order. With tho growing
communal tendencies there are fifty cit
ies in the United States that should have
garrisons of regular soldiers ready for
emergencies such as their theories maks
imminent, and oar standing army
should bo raised to 40,000 men, rather
than reduced to 20,00. We will have a
war of no meat dimensions with the
Indians of Alaska on onr hands before
long, as the entire withdrawal of all
government forces from that section has
already emboldened the Indians to as
sume an insolent attitude toward the
whites in that section. In the face of
these facts we see the blinded Dem
ocracy, true to its blundering instincts,
moving to curtail the means of resis
tance we shall have at command to meet
the ominous war-clouds gathering in
the horizon of the future.
The smoke of the political battle hav
ing lifted, the wounded and slain count
ed, it remains to the victors to bury the
dead and set the field in order for the
next grand knock-down two years
The last campaign was conducted in
a way to meet the approval of most cit
izens, there being none of the billings
gate and boomerang stink-pots hurled
at each other, as was usual in earlier
campaigning in Clackamas county. It
tokens a healthier moral as well as po
litical status in the public, which shad
ows forth it3 reflex in their representa
tives, and we rejoice to see it. It is to
be confessed that we have pretty good
material for officials in Clackamas conn
ty, and both conventions were success
ful in discovering them, and were it
not for the stigma of party antecedents
that cling to the Democratic candidates
we could have had but little choice be
tween the various contestants for the
several offices, but each man's popular
ity was put to the test and the result is
Buuwn in our returns, iuose who are
elected will flatter themselves that the
masses are men of solid jndgment, but

the gratitude of Republics, and a gen
eral dispensation is given them to damn
their eyes, bang the children, and be
snappish for c. week.

For the first time in the history of
Clackamas county, every man on the
Republican ticket has been elected, by
a good majority. This speaks volumes
iu favor of the sound judgment of our
County Convention in selecting candi
dates, and it will be repeated two years
hence if Republicans do their duty.
Their opponents made a strong fight
and were badly used np, and our

Washington. (D. C.) May 10, '78.
The stirring aud eloquent address of
Mr. JIale, as Chairman of the National
Republican Executive Committo- .fully
covers the political situation here. No
one, hearing the expression of opinion
among the Democrats, and their threats
and prophecies, can doubt the entire
correctness of Mr. Hale's charge that
the Potter resolutions mean revolution
at all hazards, and that there is a full
determination on the part of the Dem
ocracy to oust Mr. Hayes as ever there
was in a Mexican greaser to inaugurate
another resistance to the newly installed
President. The most singular part of
the outrage put upon ns to-day by the
House, is, that tho Northern Democrats
are more bitter and intense than the ex
Confederates. The latter, in their pri
vate conferences, may be as blatent -and
threatening as their Northern brethren;
but iu public they are xery discreet
leaving the blowing to be done by the
"dough-faces." In olden times theSonth
drove the ' dough-facees " like sheep
heaping upon them all kinds of abuse,
and every piece of duty to be done was
saddled upon a Northern Democrat,
just as during the rebellion the most
infamous cut-throat and desperados of
the Mexican army was the man of North
ern birth. Quantrell, who led tho mas
sacreing horde at St. Lawrence, was
born in our native county. We know
him well, as we were boys together;
and yet he, as a renegade, out-Heroded
Herod in wholesale murder. The
South would follow, though its in
stincts barred it from leading. So now
u Potter leads the oolumn.and as coolly
overrides tho peace and well-being of
the country as Quantrell charged upon,
and slaughtered tho defenceless at St.
Lawrence. We dou't doubt tho coun
try will visit tho same infamy upon the
one as the other; and wo cannot con
ceive that the people will submit to the
revolutionary Potter resolutions. Some
Democrats, who were coerced into vot
ing for them, are not at all backward,
when out of tho House, to deprecate
the action, and say it is a fatal political
error. Mills, of Texas, is not the only
member inimical to them. JJuckner, of
Missouri, says he was forced into its
support, and against his better judg
ment. When Mr. Hale's address is
carefully weighed by the country at
large, and the full iniquity of the sui
cidioal policy inaugurated by Mr. Til
den, the prince of "dough-faces," is
felt, we feel assured there will be some
terrible shaking among the dry bones
now in the Capital. Goode, of Vir
ginia, got terribly excited pending tho
last vote, inasmuch as Mr. Conger punc
tured his Southern honor most unmer
cifully. Goodo unseated Pratt in the
44th Congress through the most un
blushing frauds, and, in keeping .with
this, he violated pair with Dr. Loring
in order to vote for the Potter resolu
tions. Mr. Conger called him to ac
count with one sentence, as pithy and
pungent as ever spitted an opponent by
stating "it is simply a question whether
the gentleman will break his pair." At
this Mr. Goode threatened in the tru
est of stage bravados, to bold " the
gentleman from Michigan personally
responsible;" to which the latter re
plied, " The gentleman from Michigan
trembles in his Loots, as in duty
bound." We have not seen a more lu
dicrous ending to the blurting of a
Southern gentleman for many a day.
History tells us of several w ho would
not fight. Jeff Davis, for instance,
sneaked out under a technicality from a
contact with Col. Bissell, of Ills., who
charged him with falsehood and cow
ardice;so Mr. Goode allowed Conger to
sit down on him, and yet " his honor
is satisfied. It is amusing as well as
interesting, to witness Conger in these
broils in the House, for his coolness
exceeds that of a cucumber. His wit
and humor are ceaseless, while his
shafts of sarcasm are always winged to
cut clear down to the bone. One day,
during the fillibustering, he asked an
adjournment of ten minutes, that the
Speaker might get down and entreat his
brethren to do better. Sunset Cox, the
funny man of the Democratic bide, has
not a particle of spontaneous wit about
him. Humor with him is the result of
mental a trition in his quiet study
room, and never appears in off-hand
debate; but Conger's wit i3 unpre
medited, and bubbles forth on all oc
casions without effort or preparation.
No one can look upon the House in such
exciting contests as this without real
izing that the Republicans have an im
mense preponderance of mental
strength on their side. Conger, Hale,
Garfield and Frye stand head and shoul
ders above any or all their opponents.
There is not a skillful parliamentarian
on the Democratio side nothing but
sheer weight of mien carry them
through a fight; and when lacking
heavy battalions. Providence favors
them no more than he did Napoleon,
who thought success followed numbers
rather than generalship. Our leaders,
though heading a forlorn hope, make
nearly a victory in every fight.
The Sun 3Ioes.
A colored preacher from New Jersey
named Jasper has been revolutionizing
things in the East by coming out
squarelv for the doctrine which he
proves from the Bible that the Sun j
moves; instead of being the central lu
minary around which, the lesser planets
dance their stated cotillions he demon
strates beyond a doubt that Old Sol is
a peripatetic tramp himself. We are
glad to know this, that we are in good
company and while we go bobbing
round because we can't help ourselves
that the Sun. whom the foolish astron
omers had led us to believe was a fixed
fact is not above tho same business.
The Rev. Mr. Jasper makes out his
case thusly in his lecture at Washing
ton. But the five Kings of the Amoni
tes, having a quarrel with the Giben
tes, came down to fight them, and the
Jews buckeled to them. They fit, and
fit and right here I'm gwine to prove
to you by this blessed book that the
sun do move, suah! For Joshua said,
"Lord the battle can't be fought before
the sun goes down behind the western
hills." And the Lord said, .Joshua,
tell tho sue to stand still upon Gibeon,
and thou inoon, in tho valley of Ajalou.
So the sun stood still in the midst
of the heavens, and hastened not to go
down about a whole day. Do you
want any more proof than that? Take
Hezekiah, where the sun went back ten
degrees. And Solomon says, in Eccle
siaates, 1st chapter, 5th "verse, 'The
sun ariseth and the sun goeth down
and hasteneth to his place where he
arose.' Now Solomon was a smart
man, and knew something, and is enti
tled to respect, and that's what he says.
Now, I want to ask the gram
marians something. What is the mean
ing of the word arise? Don't it mean
Bomeiiung mat goes down stairs, or
gets up aud moves about? If I haven't
proved that the sun do move, then my
name ain't Jasper? Don't take mv
word for it, take God's. He pays
so. Will you make God a liar? Rut
they say the earth moves, that the
earth turn3 over, Pshaw! An astron
omer told me it turned over and over
and over! Why, don't you. see if it
did, all the water would fall out of the
rivers and we all be drowned.
Drowned! I tell yon. And if the
earth turned over, all the houses would
tumble down and the territories turn
over, and you and I would be standing
on our heads half the time! It's non
sonce! I have proved by the Bible
that Je sun do move. The Bible was
cherrished by our fathers; we. kin not
do better then cherrish it ourselves,
and teach our children to cherish it.
But don't beleive that the earth turns
over, for you know you can't stand on
your head all night."
It seems to us that wo often too far
rely on what assumed scientists tell us
than what is plainly disclosed to us in
iu the. Bible; every departure from its
plainly stated truths takes a person oje
step on the road to doubt and infidelity,
and nothing but a genuine return to
first principles will serve us as a na
tion from the stigma of unfaith.
