The Tariff, and Not the Money Question,
Is the Issue.
A well attended and interesting
meeting was held Monday night under
the mangement of the Republican
olub. Messrs, Hartmus, Duncan and
Somen, were the speakers. Mr. Hart
mus spoke briefly on the political
issues, but dwelt upon the tariff, and
labored to prove that hard times had
always been and is now the result of
a low tariff. He didn't think the
money question had much to do with
it. The gentleman showed some feel
ing because he had been charged with
being a carpet-bagger, He went into
a lengthy and tedious account of the
republican primary at Lyons to show
that a disgruntled citizen of that
vicinity had made the charge because
the son of the citizen of Lyons hud not
been nominated for constable by the
republicans. He claimed to have been
a resident of this county for several
years, That he sometimes spent a
month or two In Salem and Portland,
being a widower and bis children
being away, and had been postmaster
under Harrison In Marlon county, but
with all of these temporary changes of
residence he had always considered
himself a voter at Lyons, an'' that be
paid taxes on land In Linn county,
and was therefore not a carpet-bagger.
He was not particularly anxious toga
to the legislature, but was anxious to
have the repullcan ticket elected in
order to Instil hope and energy iu the
hearts and minds of the St. Louis coj
veution. Judge Duncan followed Mr. Hart
mus. He wes in favor of protection
and was a devout believer In McKi'i-
leyisui. He thought the principles of
protection should be narrowed down
to even the towns we live n. : That we
should patronise our home merchants,
lawyers aud doctors. That if he was
caught In Portland in a shabby suit of
clothes, be would wait until here-
turned to Albany to buy one. In fact,
he was a great friend of bis own town
and believed In protecting Its Interests
against the world, so great was his
faith In protection. After giving his
views on these principles ofrepublU
canism the speaker rend the figures he
had prepared from the county records
and claimed that the administration
had nothing lo lose by comparison
with former administrations. That be
had been fair, honest aid economical.
He stoutly defended the present offi
cials and wes quite certain that no
future administration could do any
better. He thought that his official
household was worthy of re-election
and could not imagine why bis oppon
ents should thiuk that the people's
money had been too liberally spent.
The officials were entitled to their
money as he naturally supposed that
they bad not Idled their time away
although he had not thought It neces
sary to keep a strict watch over their
movements. He had probably made
mistakes, but anybody was liable to do
that. He did not wish to take up too
much time by going any further Into
the alleged extravagances of county
officials. His addres was well received
and he took his seat amidst the cheers
of the audience.
Mr. Somers made a forcible speech
and Indignantly denied that be had
slandered the populist members of the
legislature. He quoted freely - from
the records of the legislature, to show
that the populist members, In propor
tion to their numbers, had cast more
votes lu favor of obnoxious measures
and fewer votes for their repeal than
the republicans had doue. That the
populists, and not the republicans,
favored big appropriation, aud were
deserving of a share of the "cussing"
to be given. The speaker said he
wished to be fair with the populists,
but that their record was very bad,
even worse than the republicans'. He
solemnly declared he would not vote
forDolpb, but was a Mitchell man.
He said there were two kinds of silver
men, o.ie, the republicans, who had an
tioncst faith In silver, the other, the
populist, who abouted for silver as a
step toward flat money, and were
really no friend to the white metal.
The speaker seemed to be sincere in his
quotations and offered to verify them
by the books. His argument made a
strong impressiou on the audience aDd
he has put the populists In a very
unenviable position. The Express
never dreamed that the populists were
guilty of one half of all these things.
Surely their speakers are able to suc
cessfully explain these matters. If
not, then Mr. Somers has got Mr.
Smith where the wool Is short.

DEMOCRATS AT SCIO.
The Town Was Out in Full Force to
Hcio, Or., May 4, 1896V ';'
To tub Editok or the Hirams:-
There was democratic speaking here
ou Saturday. The rain came down in
torrents, but the people came by the
dozens, foot, horseback, and In wagons
and the town was out In full force.
Mr. T. J. Munkers presided with dig
nity. Mr. McElmurry spoke first and
made a fine Impression as an honest
advocate of the people. Mr. Garland
wus then Introduced and was received
with much enthusiasm. Le spoke
about thirty minutes and gave a plain,
unprejudiced and polite statement of
county affairs, criticising In a gentle
manly way the official acts of the
present administration. Mr. Garland,
who was not previously well known In
In this community, Impressed the
audience as a fair and Impartial man.
well qualified to attend the affairs of
the county. He made a flue Impree-
sion and won many friends.
Mr. M. A. Miller was next Intro
duced and soon had the undivided
attention of the audience. He showed
the) insincerity of the republican
speaker who tried to cover up the
main Issues by yelling tariff. He
proved that the money question was
the Issue. That the democrats had
declared for free silver in unmistakable
words. He showed that the republi
cans had openly or seorctly aided and
abetted the oorporatlous. trusts and
monopolies for thirty years, while the
democratic leaders, with hut few ex
ceptions, had always stood firm for
the Basses. He showed concluslvelv
that the issue of bonds was the secret
aim of the republican bosses. Mr.
Miller has risen rapidly as-a clear and
eloquent advocate of the people and is
recognised as a leading democrat of the
Mr. Watson, the democratic nominee
for the legislature, defined his views
and as in perfect accord with the
democratic county platform. He
showed that the republican leaders of
the state were tied to the Portland
riug, That the people were powerless
Iq their bauds. That the republican
voter; were as honest as any other, but
their leaders in this and other counties
could not loosen the hold of the ring
bosses. He was in favor of striot
economy and would guard the inter
ests of the people with a ceaseless
vigitflSoe. .. .
Mr. Watson impressed his hearers
with bis integrity and ability. . He
will poll a very large vote here irres
pective of party. The democrats have
awakened to their duty and Scio will
return its old time vote.

no doubt be liberally lavished upon
the voters of Linn eouuty until the
first Monday iu June, at which time
they will see the folly of their ways.
Last but not least. The thing that
created the most wonderful surprise of
all; Judge Duncan, after being tailed

whose honor aud dignity would not
