POWERFUL. SIRCERE ANO EFFECTIVE
Pally Gaard, April 21
The opening of the camuaign for the
Citizens ticket in Lane county began
today with the speech of J H (Cyclone)
Davis, the brilliant epigrammatical
orator of the Lone Star state.
The circuit court room of the court
bouse was used, and before the hour
of speaking it was taxed to its utmost
capacity, quite a large number of
ladies being present. At 1:30 o’clock
Mr Davis was introduced by Judge J
J Walton aud proceeded at once to the
discussion of the leading political
"By the light of the past can we see
to advance into the future," said Mr
Davie. ‘‘Government such as ours is
organized to give and perpetuate to its
people certain inalienable rights,—
life, liberty and the pursuit of happi
ness, aud the movement of govern
mental functions should tend toward
The imperialistic policy is to grade
government to the existing conditions
of men as they are ground down, and
compel a submission to the same. Tbe
true Jeffersonian democratic policy is
to defend, protect and build up tbe
people by a strict adherence to the
principles of tbe government founded
by our forefathers an a place where
lite, liberty and the pursuit of happi
ness is our birthright.
The question of trust or monopoly
ownership of lauds was handled strong
ly by the speaker. A monopoly of
land never was contemplated as a Di
vine right, aud whether it be a duke,
lord, earl, sydicate, monopoly or trust,
to cone ;ntrate the ownership ot land
in the hands of a few is against tbe
masses and for the classes. To place the
enormous power of wealth in tbe bands
of a few people, creates a power in this
republic more potent than that exerted
by many kings aud potentates.

States can purchase nine states in tbe
