ABILITY AND FAITHFULNESS
VERSUS BOSSISM.-BOSSISM .
SCORES SEVERAL FOISTS.
' The members who were sent
from hore to the Populist conven
tion in Albany, were individually
and collectively the superior in
jMiint of ability to any .delegation
from elsewhere in this county. The
Populists of Lebanon have in their
ranks a better class of men than
the rank and file of the party can
elsewhere claim. Men of ability
and of property belong to the party
in this vicinity. The reason is Ob
vious to those who know the his
tory, of the party in this precinct.
Several years ago, Mr. A.
Jack Adams,, a man of ability
and an original Populist, began to
promulgate the principles of this
partv. lie did tins very success
fully by personal appeal and by
newspaper work. He spent his
time, his taleots and his money in
this, the work of his life, while the
' preient leaders of his party .were
loyal to the old parties in the de
lusive hope of securing a warm nest
in their midst, and were ridiculing
the principles he then advocated
and to which they have now at
tached themselves, like animalcules
to the bottom of a ship.
The work thus begun by Adams
has been carried on by Geo. Alex
ander, another old-time Populist
of Lebanon. Persuaded by the ef
forts' of these two men, in the main,
the people of this neighborhood
have, in considerable number, gone
over to this party.
The ablest, if not the oldest
member nf this party in this pre-
einct and even in this county
is Hon. C. B. Montague, a delegate
to the county convention. The
other delegates were all men of
more or less ability. They all re
flected honor upon their cause
and were thirteen strong.
Thus Lebanon, represented by
thirteen honorable men, with the
advantage of being the strongest
precinct in the connty and with
the prestige of being the cradle of
Populism of this county, entered
the convention. They left it with
the same number, the same advan
tage and prestige, but with the
most meager and unsatisfactory
representation on the ticket nomi
nated. One place was secured, and
thrit with hardly enough compen
sation attached to it to defray actu
al expenses if elected. Adams, the
father of his party, was turned
down for "the party's precocious
erandsou, for recorder. Alexander
wag left to sigh for even one world
to conquer. Montague, the ablest
and most eloquent member of the
(siiiventiou, was beaten for a seat
in the state convention by a man
who cannot hope to command the
attention that would have been
cheerfully given his defeated op
ponent. Thus did this convention
repay the services of their most
worthy party lenders.
The Lebanon delegates, believing
that they were entitled to recogni
tion, fdr reason mentioned above,
did not attend the midnight caucus
just preceding the convention. They
were early on tlie grunml tiie next j
day, but the early bird did not
catch lh worm for the night-owl
got in hie deadly work and there
was no worm to catch. Innocent
of wrong doing themselves and un
suspicious of foul play in others,
ignorant of midnight caucuses and
strong in the faith that Populists
could do no-wrong,' they soundly
slept on the night of the ninth
only to awake on the tenth to the
knowledge thut the Populist party.
. like the old parties, can have its
rings, its cliques and its bosses.
The awajscning is sad indeed
but sadder still will the awakening
be, when these confiding voters,
having placed these bosses in pow
er, gee the fleece of these lambs
changing to the bristles of a Tam
many tiger, and their bosses' anxi
ety to serve tiie ('ear people forgot
ten in their frantic efforts to make
the dear people serve the bosse? .
Sutweriue for the Expbbk now.
A rural correspondent writes
that he would like to know where
trmt dollar wheat is that he was
promised, and ulso the locality ol
that clover that he was told he
could roll in after voting for G ro
ver. Oregonian. v
The dollar wheat and clover are
probably in the same vicinity as
the good times that the Oregonian
said would follow the repeal of the
The snosdng under of tho Leba
non delegation to tiie Populist con
vention in Albanv, gives additional
reason for the superstitious belief
that thirteen is an unlucky num
ber, there being thirteen of the
delegates. In this case it is not
only an unlucky number, but also
a back number.
