Th Sham Battle.
The Oregocian, ever ready to
fling at Democrat hag been using
the powerful influence of its col
ums to lay the blame of young
Kelson's death on the head of Gen.
Compson. Sham battles probably
cost more than they are worth, and
shook! be diroourrged. But Gen.
Compson is no more to blame than
Gov. Pennoyer, the Commander in
Chief, who coul J haveeountermand
ed the order. From Gen. Comp
son's explanation, it appears that
Nelson met bis death in the act
(innocently probably) of violating
the orders, of his Biioerior. Some
one hud 16 be found on whom to
fasten blame. A Democrat hap
pened to be head of the army, and
this fact was enough to warrant
the Oregonian in laying at his door
any crime. Hence Gen. Compson
was made the victim, rettv mean-

Silver is dead. The bouse passed
the Wilson bill. The silver men
were fewer than was supposed.
there were nearly two to one a
gainst silver Of course the silver
nnrtisans are predicting untold
miseries while the gold men are
much encouraged. An anal i sis of
the vote shows that the great ma
jority uf those favoring silver were
Democrats. An attempt to have
American silver carried was not
encouraged by the silver champion
Bland, who wanted absolute free
silver. What effect on the hard
times this action will have, if any,
yet remains to be seen.
Again we call the attention of
the proper parties to the condition
lei the county roads in general, and
i particular to the rod from Leb

is a nuisance and should be abated.
Wheat is worth only 44 cents,

The Oregon legislature at its last
session changed the holiday known
as labor day from the first Satur
day in June to the first Monday in
Srjitember. ? So next Monday, the
4th day of September, will be the
lesal holiday, labor day.
We now nave an authoritative state
fluent from the governor tliut au extr
action of the legislature will not b
called to pass a stay law. A niajorilj
of the niemtjera are opposed to the
proiosition, and the governor bini
wlf is of the opinion tliat it would op
erate more barm than good.
Gov. Pennoyer keeps Oregon
well advertised. So sooner does
the press of the East get through
with him on one subject before he
stUre up the entire nest again from
the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean.
It may not be the most desirable
character of advertising, but then
it keeps the governor, as well as
the State, before the fiublic, and
what is best, it costs nothing to
the tax-payers of our State. It is
free advertising in the editorial
columns. Nothing like having a
Governor who is always ready to
ssy something worthy of so much
note. When anyone thinks that
Oregon's Governor is a 'nonenity
he should read the papers. Dis

The Eugene Guard thinks that
if Governor Pennoyer would call a
special session and club the mem
bers into passing a law to curb ex
tortionate freight rates he would
deserve the gratitude of the people.
Some members would be in favor
of an extra session if it could be
known in advance that the legisla
ture would repeal the laws author
izing the jute mill and soldieis'
home appropriations. Others would
want the mortgage tax law re-enacted,
so there is small hope that
the session would he a Bhort one.
