side has to say.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press of the 25th
inst. gives the following railroad news:
"Owing to the absence of Vice President
and General Manager Oakes, nothing
could be learned at the offices of the
Northern Pacific yesterday regarding the
published report that the Union Pacific
had secured control of tho O. B. & N.
Messrs. Odell and Iiamborn, tho only
prominent officials at home, had no in
formation corroborative or otherwise of
the rumor. Neither thought it likely. A
general impression perTaded the build
ing, however, that the report was true,
and this was augmented by the report
that the engineering department had re
ceived telegraphic instructions from
President Harris to rush tho Cascade
branch as fast as possible. Chief En
gineer Anderson's .absence made it im
possible to learn definitely whether such
instructions had been received or not.
Crews are now at work upon both ends
of the branch, but it will be impossible
to oomplete this work within two or three
years. The great trouble will bo tunnel
ling the Cascades. Connection, however,
will be made a at much earlier date by
means of a switch back. "With this
branch completed, the Northern Pacific

The present campaign has been a lively
one in Astoria. Political clubs havokept
everything moving- and moro especially
during tho last week has tho enthusiasm
been unbounded. Last evening saw the
most effective turn-out of the campaign
in this citj. Tho Astoria Blaine and Lo
gan club, tho Scandinavian Blaine and
Logan club, and representative Bepubli
cans from all parts of the county formed
in line and marched five hundred in
number in what is conceded to bo the
finest procession of the season. The
night was a grand one, the moon almost
at its full, shone brightly, the air was
filled with the glare of torchlights, trans
parencies, rockets and Roman candles;
the bands played their loudest; those in
the procession and on the crowded streets
gave vent to their enthusiasm, and when
the procession after parading through
the principal streets of the city, halted in
front of the Occident to escort the
speaker of tho ovening to the hall, the
assemblage gave three cheers which were
taken up and re-echoed along the line.
Arriving at the hall, which was filled to
hear Hon. Buf us Mallory, thatgentlomnn
was introduced by Frank L. Parker.
Mr. Mallory said:
"To be ushered into such a presence on
such an occasion ought to be a pleasure
to any American citizen. When I reflect
that on next Tuesday the nation's fate
shall bo decided; when I seo such a vast
concourse of intelligent American citi
zens as are now before me, I feel that the
heart of Astoria is right on the great
The test of trne Republicanism is that
the majority shall rule; that fearlessly,
thoughtfully and with a due sense of the
great responsibility of sovereignty the
American citizen shall go to the polls on
election day and cast a ballot for tho
choice of the nation.
The Republican party has for its .standard-bearers
the great statesman, Blaine,
and the gallant soldier, Logan, into
whose hands are to bo placed the destin
ies of this nation for the next four years.
They are in every sense representative
men. Their nomination hud been dic
tated by no ring; their names were the
spontaneous selection of the people; and
the people that selected Blaine labt sum
mer would place him in the presidential
chair. We need ;i statesman; in Blaine
wo have a great statesman, a brilliant
leader, a popular representative, and an
honest man. His record has been read
b' the nation; his history is the history
of the Republican party: his triumphal
endorsement is but tho just due that iucii
pay to acknowledged merit. In the con
vention that nominated Blaine there was
no gag rule as in the convention that
nominated Cleveland. It was free,
hearty, almost unanimous, and was in
dicative of tho majority that would be
rolled up for him next TueMlay. It was
a matter of history that u candidate
foisted upon a convention by a ring, a
candidate who, like Cleveland, was put
forward by thoso who would rule or ruin,
such u candidate was invariably defeat
ed, Tho letters of acceptance were com
pared, greatly to the detriment of that
written by tho Democratic candidate.
What recommendations did this obscure
man Cleveland have for tho high office of
president of the United States? His sole
recommendation was that ho happened
to be tho instrument that Republicans
used to rebuke interference by tho ad
ministration in 1882. Ho that year re
ceived a les3 number of votes in tho Em
pire state than Hancock for president
two years before. All that the Democrats
wanted was to get in: it didn't mako any
difference who they took np sons they
thought that ho had a chanco to pull in.
This was not a hogging game. It was a
choice for president, a man fit to sit in
the highest place among 56,000,000 peo
ple. But Democrats say "turn tho rascals
out." No matter what Republican argu
ment was used, that was their sole plea,
their only shibboleth. Simple calling of
names wasn't enough. Thinking men in
any emergency decide according to argu
ment and proef: they pay no heed to idle
talk. Tho perpetuity of our government
is the point to insure. "When the ver3'
life of the Union was threatened the peo
ple of the United States handed over the
shaping of its policy to the young Re
publican party, and they had never re
gretted tho act. That party had declared
that the Republic could not live half
slave and half free; between slavery
and liberty there was an irrepressible
conflict, and the Republican party had
adopted and maintained tho cause of
liberty. At the root of the tree of slav
ery they laid the ax of constitutional lib
erty. Shall they therefore be turned out?
Gito the history of that great party. Its
policy has ever been for tho best interests
of tho country. It was not infallible.
Some of its members had been unworthy.
Is tho party to be blamed for abuse? It
purged itself of that abuse. It turned
out its unworthy members and punished
them. Sometimes it had trouble doing
that. "When Dorsey was tried in Wash
ington, eight of the jury that failed to
conv ct him were Democrats.
Who did they put forward to take the
place of this patriotic party? Was it
Hendricks? Tho speaker cited Hen
dricks' war record, showed that he was
then an enemy to tho government; but
was a fair representative of his parti'
throughout those troublous years. But
now, with all that infamous record, the
only plea they plead for power is "Turn
tho rascals out. '
The Democratic party had been out of
power a long time; they wanted to get in;
tney were full of promises but the Amer
ican people were distrustful of that par
ty and its history and would not let them
in. They had tried again and again, but
the answer comes "Not Yet."
There was a question in tho campaign:
that of the tariff. Tho Democratic party
is by nature a party of free trade. There
is but one way of judging of a thing, and
that was by trying it. Experience is the
best test. Tho history of tariff legisla
tion showed that prosperity followed fa
vorable legislation on the tariff, and
disaster and distress followed its repeal
Under tho fostering policy of protection
the country had attained a marvelous
growth in all the attributes of a material
prosperity. John C. Calhoun had tried
to fight protection by marching South
irarounu oui oi iuo union in iooz, out
Andrew Jackson quelled the free trader
and swore that Calhoun and his follow
ers should abide by tho law or ho would
know the reason why.
The question of the tariff was inextri
cably wound into the fabric of our na
tional life and national history. The
speaker went into an exhaustive history
of the tariff from 1812 to the present
time, furnishing abundant proof that in
the judgment of the great minds of the
nation protection insured prosperity, and
free trade invited disaster. The question
would be again decided next Tuesday and
it was for the voters of tho Republic to
say whether they were for the policy that
insured health to the country or one that
inevitably provoked national disease.
Referring to Mr. Fenton's speech and
the doctrine of stato sovereignty7, he
thought that their advocacy of that doc
trine was of itself fatal to the party
that would advocate and champion state
supremacy. He had a certain amount of
respect for tho man that foucht for his
principles, however erroneous they might
be, but none for men like Hendricks, who
stabbed hiscountrv in the back. But
Democrats say: "Treat us as was treated
the prodigal son." That's what the Be
pubbcan party was doing, but tho Demo
crats wanted more; they demanded entire

1U IUU UJUtbUl Ul IWUIO, UUUUUU WJ Oyi
jut. .teuton, tne speaker asserted thatL
Mr. Fenton didn't go far enouch. He
should have disoossed tho question to its
logical conclusion. Did Mr. Fenton say
that there was a tariff of 25 per cent on im-
ported salmon, and so on the million dol
lars of salmon sold in this country, sold
at an increa'sed price on account of tho
tariff, tho fishermen of the Columbia,
while paying 80,000 a year in round num
bers in tariff they received $250,000 more
than they would had there been no tariff,
thus showing a clear gain of 170,000 a
year by reason-of this tariff. Mr. Fen
ton might have said all this and told the
truth, but he didn't. That twine was
made in New Jersey by men that Ameri
can prices of labor gave opportunity to
buy salmon; by men that while they lived
in Scotland could not. This thing works
both wavs and when both sides are told
the truth comes out.
It is claimed and complained that wo
are on the eve of hard times. This was
always usual about the time of presiden
tial elections. Democrats had had the
lower house of congress sinco 1874, yet
they have not been able to inaugurate
some plan or policy that would avert these
"hard times," about which they talk so
much. They had the oppertunity: they
had failed, and nave but an iaie protest.
All thev conld do was to camp on the
trail of tho Bepublican party a long
way oft and cry, "Turn tne rascais ouij
we want to get in."
Their settled attitude of opposition to
Republican policy and Republican prin
ciples was the most fruitful cause and
menace of hard times, and until they
showed a disposition to accept tho policy
of the country "hard times" would be
threatened. People to-day were timid;
they feared that by some accident tho
Democrats might come into power and
iftjatta al busimat Talue. Astoria
v.tiiteu liberal appropriations for the im
provement of the bar. It was to the
business interests of Astoria to stand by
and vote for the parly that always makes
it a part of its policy to favor liberal ap
propriations for such works of improve
ment as that of improving the bar at the
mouth of our river.
Cleveland says ho is "a Democrat"!
If he is, then ho is opposed to river and
harbor improvements. If Astoria want
ed that, let Astorians vote for Cleveland
and Hendricks. If they wanted to work
with tho party that was in their favor,
let them vote for Blaine and Logan.
When the speaker asked for appropri
ations when he was in congrass from this
state he was repulsed by Democratic
"statesmen" in congress. They made a
mistake then: they would make tho same
mistake now. Such work as that needed
at the bar was a part of continuous Re
publican policy, and that party was the
one to stand by and maintain.
Tho Democratic party claimed that it
always had the Irish, just tho same as in
the solid south. That had been true, but
its truth had ceased. Irish-American
voters were now casting their political
fortunes with tho Republican party, and
on the 4th inst. no inconsiderable part
of Blaine's majority wou!d come from
tne ranns oi our lrisu-Ainerican citizens.
The Republican party had all creeds,
nationalities and conditions in its ranks,
and was a national party. It embraced
all classes, and was proud of the fact
that tho cmicrant when he turned his
eyes to the flag of the free, allied himself
with the party tnat was pieugea to up
hold that starry banner.
England endorsed Cleveland and op
posed Blaine. That nation had endor&od
the bouth in slavery days, anu opposeu
tho Union. Sho drove our commerce
from the seas long ago in the cruel days
of the nation's trial. To-day, truo to
her nature, she goes against our inter
ests and upholds thoso whom she deems
will aid her interests at our expense.
Let us be Americans and uphold our
American principles against England as
wo did in 177G, and 1812 and 1SG1. A
vote for Cleveland is a vote for England
and against America. Can a citizen of
this great Republio betray his country
by aiding her hereditary foe?
Blaine is a representative American.
He believes in an American lolicy and is
a worthy exponent of our great and pro
Mr. Mallory then entered upon a glow
ing history of tho progress and trium
phant record of the Republican party,
and amid thunders of applause ho proph
esied tho election of Blaine and Logan
on the 4th of this month. Here ho would
stop, but amid a storm of applause and
cries of "Go on," "Go on," he in a pero
ration of exceeding beauty, cited the
signs of victory as they hung on the po
litical sky, and congratulated tho vast
audience that tho great Republican par
ty had been weighed in the balance of
public opinion, had been stamped with
tho approval of the people for twenty
four yoars and was now to receive
tho seal of public approval for the sev
With but slight allusion to tho con
temptible charges against Blaine, that
were but mentioned to bo contemned,
the speaker paid eulogy to the high per
sonal character of the Republican presi
dential candidate, and closed amid ap
plause that rose and fell and rose again,
to chaugo into tremendous and tempest
uous cheering for the man that on next
Tuesday shall bo elected the twenty-second
president of the United States.
Mr. Mallory spoke for two hours and
twenty minutes to as large an audience
as was eTer gathered together in Astoria.
Ho was interrupted by vociferous and
long continued applause and made a most
telling and effective speech. For fino

Astobia. Oct. 31, 1SS1.
"'Many Bepublicans havo turned over
to tho Democrats to-night, I know."
This is what I heard a naturally con
stituted Democrat say, after we camo out
of Occidental hall last night, where Mr.
Fenton had unfolded tho Democratic
cause; and, as a Republican laboring
man, I must say that ho i3 tho most rc-
spectablo speaker that I havo yet heard,
of all the Democratic politicians. -Tho
mild way in which he expounded the
great Democratic force and its harmless
ness, was almost amiablo to listen to.
Ho had no particular fault to find with
Blaine, simply stating that ho was a cow
ard for not having shown his true colors
in the Prohibition fight, and that he was
well known for previously using his offi
cial influence for his private interests.
Ho also assured us that he was for
the protection of our industries. I was
about thinking ho was "all 'some as
'Melican man," until he referred to the
Democratic unity and force by which
they had extorted a confession from the
tariff commissioners that a reduction of
25 per cent, was needed. This I had seen
before better explained in tho Democrat
ic platform, which reads thus: "Its own
tariff commission confessed the need of
more than 20 per cent, reduction; its con
gress gave a reduction of less than 4 per
cent.; it professed tho protection of
American manufactures: it has subjected
them to an increased flood of manufac
tured goods and a hopeless competition
with other manufacturing nations."
These are the simple and encouraging
words by which the Democratic platform
reminds all interested, of Democratic
unity and ability to extort this confession
of tho need of more than l!0 per cent, re
duction. This particularly identifies
them with tho Morrison bill, which pro
posed a horizontal reduction of 20 per
cent., and was supported by five-sixths of
all the Democratic congressmen. It is
evident that the Republicans cannot
causo any manufacturer to produce goods
that there is no market for; but the
Democrats accusing the Republicans of
being the cause of this flood of goods in
hopeless competition, i3 a positive proof
that tho Democratic force is in sympathy
with free trade.
"Flooded with goods but in hopeless
competition with other manufacturing
nations," that explains itself. These
goods cannot be produced at the Ameri
can price of labor and sold at tho Euro
pean price in market except at a loss.
Our natural resources are bettor than
those of Europo in most thiugj but these
goods cannot bo produced for the same
price on account of higher wages in
America and for no other reason. Ac
cording to the Democratic party and Mr.
Fenton, it is proven that Democrats are
in sympathy with thoso now in hopeless
competition with European manufactur
ers. As it is not likely that either party
would knowingly attempt to paralyzo the
industries of our country, we must con
clude that one or the other's reasoning
power as a whole is in discord with cause
and effect, for if it was good judgment
by which the Democrats proposed and
supported tho 20 per cent reduction, then
it was folly on tho Republicans' part to
This simplo question regarding a pro
tective tariff and our common welfare I
claim can bo solved by admitting tho or
dinary known pr.nciples of cause and
effect. Tariff is a toll paid by foreigners
for the privilege of selling their goods in
our market. It costs the public nothing
for it goes to the public treasury and is
used for the public goad. Twenty per
cent, reduction of tariff permits a for
eigner to bring his goods into our mar
ket at a 20 per cent, less cost and that is
n 20 per cent, reduction in market value
for such-goods manufactured hero and as
that will be a clear loss to manufactur
ers, it necessitates at least 50 per cent re
duction in wages. This the American
laborer will not accede to but will strike
as long as unions can support him, and
work only when compelled to by poverty.
It will send millions of mechanics out
among the farmers seeking in vain for
employment as miners, machinists, wea
vers, shoemakers, tailors, hatters, etc.
It will effect a reduction in wages of 50
per cent, at least, throughout tho countrv;
It will reduce in valuo almost everything
that is produced by hands, it matters
not whether it be a saw mill or a brick
yard, goods in store or ore in piles, for
things that are produced by labor have a
relative valuo to the cost of the labor
required to produco them. This and
much moro is what Mr. Morrison with
five-sixths of tho Democratic congress
men havo asked us to endure.
Tho tradition that tho devil cannot
trespass on our company without first un
covering his cloven hoof is an exact and
truecomparison with every public mis
leading question bearing on common
welfare, it cannot bo introduced to us
without visible mischievous intent. We
have listened to oratorv for a false pur
pose comparing Blaine's faults as a camel
with Cleveland's as a gnat, and proclaim
ing that low tariff had been and would
be again for the interest of the country;
we have heard the deceptive cry "mono
poly," "stop thief;" we have seen tho de
ceptive circulars referring to tho roberies
of millions and millions by tho Republi
cans, asking ignorance to accept it for
tho truth without giving tho least trace
of proof; asking the simpletons of the
country to accept their figures and com
pute for themselves the amount stolen
from the poor people; we have heard the
deceptive lie that it can be no worse for
us laborers while wo see tho living proof
of continued emigration of labor from
worse countries for their own betterment,
but for all this we cannot willingly sub
mit to the Democratic legislation to ad
minister laws for our welfare.
