TRUE IN PART ONLY.
Occasionally a Blaine paper pops
up and reminds the country tliat in
1872, Carl Schurz, as well as a great
many others, bolted the Republican
nomination for President, and yet
the Republican nominee was elec
ted for all that. But, one important
fact is lost sight of in this behalf.
Grant was the Republican candidate,
and, despite the corruption he had
fostered during his administration,
the country was, just then, in the hu
mor to give him another trial. Yet,
this sentiment was the least of the
difficulties the Independents had to
contend against in that memorable
campaign. Horace Greeley's candi
dacy was adopted by the National
Democratic Convention. This was
the last feather that broke the camel's
back. The Democracy could not be
brought to the support of Greeley,
their old time most implacable enemy.
Multiplied thousands of them voted
for Grant straight, as a rebuke of the
folly of Greeley's endorsement, whilo
by far a greater number of tried and
true Democrats declined to vote or
attend the polls at all at that
election. While the Independents
did all that was expected of them and
more, the default of the Democrats
gave the election to Grant; Greeley
received an immense vote. There is no
considerable neighborhood or settle
ment in Oregon, in Curry county, for
that matter, wherein dozens of Demo
crats cannot be counted, who either
voted for Grant, or "wintered" their
votes, as they termod it
At the present time there are two
very sufficient reasons why this cam
paign will not cannot ultimate like
that. Firstly, the country at large is
disgusted with the frauds, and false
pretenses, and peculations of the
Republican machine to a far greater
degree than it was then. Secondly,
the Democratic National Convention,
profiting by the recollection of past
disasters, wisely gave the party such
candidates as to defy criticism on the
record of their Democracy. Whatev
er else may be said, it cannot be al
ledgod that there is any "Dolly Var
den" element in our ticket. This
fact rallies to its support the united,
unconquerable Democracy, while the
better elements of the Republican
party rally to the support of Cleve
land and Hendricks with the single
purpose and the fixed determination
to bring about a change. The result
of such a contest cannot be doubtful.
The Mariar Halpin fiasco having
been pushed against Cleveland for
all it was worth, and the same having
recoiled upon the promoters of the
story, recourse is now had to the most
absurd objection to the Democratio
standard-bearer possible to be im
agined, and that is. that Cleveland is
a monopolist! A monopolist worth
scarcely five thousand dollars is a cu
rious looking bird, truly. And that
sum marks the limit of honest Grover
Cleveland's worldly possessions.
Kalloch was for Blaine awhile, but
he is now whooping up Butler in San
Francisco. Kalloch ought to have
stayed with Blaine, for Kalloch afore
said istattooed, too. '
k SECOND MORTGAGE" STEAL.
The Albany Herald reprints the
statement to the effect that the Gov
ernment will lose a hundred mil
lion dollars by reason of the default
of the Union Pacific Railroad U the
payment of principal and interest of
meaDS advanced to build said road,
and the statement adds that, but for
the surrender by Congress in 18G4
of the Government's first mortgage
for a second mortgage on the road,
all would be secure. This stupen
dous robbery of the people is such as
to almost stagger belief, and we mar
vel that the Herald, a leading Blaine
organ, would give currency just now
to such a showing. The shifting of
the Government's mortgage was a
part of the Credit Mobilier pro
gramme, and Congressmen were pur
chased with Credit Mobilier and
Union Pacific stock to vote for the
change, which everyone at all posted
knew to be a bald, infamous robbery at
the time. Blaine was an active, lead
ing supporter of the measure, and
Blaine was found afterwards to pos
sess large lots of Union Pacific and
Credit Mobilier stock 1 The promo
ters of that infamous swap of mort
gages were a band of abandoned,
bribe-taking rogues. We suppose
tf'at even the Albany Herald will not
i ttempt seriously to controvert this
proposition; yet Blaina was conspicu
ous among the despicable gang. And
when the Thurman bill, which was
intended to compel the Pacific roads
to do something toward redeeming
their pledges to the Government, was
before Congress, this same Blaine
fought it inch by inch at every, stage
of its progress. It was in conse
quence of Bfaine's factious , opposi
tion to this just measure (the Thur
man bill) that Senator Edmunds ac
cused him of beiDg a paid attorney of
corporations on the floor of the Sen
ate. MISS ANTHONY'S EDICT.
It will be remembered that, in the
first number of the Recorder, in de
fining the position of this paper on
the suffrage issue, we gave as one
reason for opposing the measure that
all of the representative leaders in
the movement were Republicans.
This statement the New Northwest
attempted to controvert at the time.
That paper and all of the organs of
the suffrage crusade are now hurrah
ing in chorus for Blaine and Logan
in obedionce to instructions from
Susan B. Anthony & Co. We knew
whereof we wrote. Time has vindica
ted our position.
And the reason stated by the Neio
Northivcst for hoisting the Blaine and
Logan flag, if worth anything, would
kill them in all the Pacific States, by
parity of reasoning. That , journal
argues that, inasmuch as a majority
of negative votes in Congress against a
preliminary suffrage resolution wer5
cast by Democrats, therefore the
Democratic party of the nation is
opposed to Woman Suffrage. ; Now,
if such logic is good and we think it
is no anti-Chinese voter in the three
Pacific States ought to vote for Blaine
and Logan, for it is notorious that,'
when the Restriction Bill was passed
it was vehemently opposed by a very
large array of Republican members,
and, when finally passed, it was ve
toed by a Republican President. Not
alone this, but John A. Logan spoke
and voted against the measure in the
Blaine points to Turkey as exem
plifying the beauties of free trade!
Let the tattooed man look upon Mex
ico, a high protective tariff country,
and see if he can discern any point of
advantage that country enjoys oyer
poor, rent and emasculated Turkey.
And Turkey is not a free trade coun
try. Despite the efforts of the Aladdin
to pull the wool over their eyes, the
majdrity of the leading sheep men
of Curry county aro dyed-in-the
wool Democrats, and are enthusiastic
supporters of Cleveland and Hen
dricks. They think the Aladdin
aforesaid has wool in "his teeth.
Josh Billings hits the "bulls-eye"
when he says: "Dead men alone
have a right to be noutral."
A manufacturing boss in Wheeling,
West Va., called his men together the
other day, and addressed them in be
half of Blaine, and dwelt upon the
assumption that the election of Cleve
land would lead to a 25 per cent re
duction in wages! A ' bold spirit in
the crowd spoke up and asked: "Why
have we already been reduced 25 per
cent during the last two years?", This
was as difficult to answer as it was
unexpected. "The fact is," continued
the incredulous operative, "there are
not one dozen of the entire force of
this mill that believe there is any
probability of truth in what you claim
on this point" "Why so," returned
the boss, "won't they reduce the
tariff?" "I cannot say as to that, but
this much I am certain of," replied
the workman, uif it was at all likely
that Cleveland's election would pro
mote the further reduction of wages
every factory in the country would
be working hard for that end." It is
unnecessary to add, that this brave
spirit wa9 "rebuked by prompt dismis
sal from employment '
More acting. If Blaine is not dra
matic and unreal, he is nothing. His
latest "opportunity" was the publica
tion in the Indianapolis Sentinel of
the story of the seduction and deser
tidh in Kentucky of the woman he
finally married in Maine. He tele
graphs to have libel proceedings
brought against the publisher of the
Sentinel quick! and adds: "I will
defend the honor of my family with
my life!" Sotto voce, "You bet your
boots." One would have thought
that, had he not been merely acting,
Blaine would have omitted the bluff
implied in his closing, in view of the
gravity of the aspect he sought to
give the affair.
Frank Pixley, of the Argonaut,
who has always been a violont abuser
of the Irish Catholics, has consented
to forego his abuse until after the
election in the hope that some of
them may be induced to vote for
Blaine, but thinks Republican poli
ticians will curse themselves after
election for the presumption that
they can secure any considerable por
tion of the "Pope's Irish" as he terms
