All yes are on the Southern Ore
gon Mail and Pennoycr.
' Mrs. Lease has turned the heads of
many a staid old politician.
The ring is tick now. but will have a
severe attack of spasms about June Gth.
Floods, mins horrors and stage rob
beries have been frequent and terrible
the last f jw weeks.-
Jths weok's issue we publish Gov
ernor Pennoyor's Athina speech in full,
and trust it will .be ead and apprf
ciated by all our readers.
AGAIN we deem it necessaay to con.-
tradiet the originators of the story that
W. T. Anderson will not run as judge
on the People's party ticket. He IS on
the ticket and will stay there until
the last vote is counted. These false
reports almost assure his election.
TnE Third or Peoples' Party move'
mont has reached a point bsyond ts
experimental stage and for a man to
sner at its principles or disciples
proves one ofthFJ9 taiagj-self inter
est, party prejudice or iguoranea.
sometimes we can excuso the first
wand thi last is deferring of pity, but for
J,$he second, party prejudice, there is
jpothing upon God's green footstool
which so much merits the contempt of
reasonable and free thinking men in
this enlightened age.
- L. Polk has s:ud, that more and
more are the grat masses of people
learning to comprehend the duties,
functions and powers of the govern
ment as then general agent. What
right has their genera! agent to issue
the peoples' money to corporations at
a cost of I per cont and license these
corporations to loan it to the pjople at
a cost of 8 to 24 per cent? We bjlieve
with John C. Calhoun that the peo
ple should not bj required to pay in
terest or gorernment credit while said
credit could bj extended to them with
out interest. We bjlieve with Tnomas
Jefferson, that the power to issue
money should be taken from the banks
and restored to the psople and to Con
gress, to which it rightfully belongs.
We believe with James G. Blaine, that
the one defective element in the na
tional bank system, is that it requires
the permanence of the national debt as
the basis of its existencs. We believe
that Abraham Lincoln could have ut
tered no truer prophecy had his hand
and pen baen guided" by inspiration
when he wrote, that the money power
of the country will endeavor to prolong
its reign by working up the prejudices
of the people until all wealth is aggre
gated in a few hands, aud the republic
THE KANSAS CYCLONE.
The People's Party may well foel
jubilant over thj result of the work
done in thU valley by our Kansas
champion, Mrs. Mary E. Lease, for
never in the history of political rally
has there bean such an uprising as
that which turned , out in every in
stance to hear this lady speak. Won
derful as is her voice and articulation,
her truths are still more of a rcveala-
tion and not only tend to the education
of the masses on vital points, but old
and tritid politicaas oa evvy hand
admit that they have had their eyes
opened as never before.
The lady spoke in four places: Ash
land, Medford, Jacksonville and Cold
HDl and at each and every place, sev
eral hundred people turned out to h ;ar
and to learn. She speaks without
notes and is never at a loss for words;
in fact as sh? herself says, the time
alloted for each sp3ch is always too
short. Her subject is the finance,
principally, although hir lectures
have no resemblance om with the
other.' Next week we hope to find
space to give tha greater portion of
the speech as delivered in this city.
PENNOYER S SPEECH.
The Portland Telegram publishes
the following interview with the Gov
ernor: Governor Pennoyer's Albina speech
has caused so much comment, coupled
with some speculation as to his motive,
if any, that did not appear on the sur
face, that a Telegram repprter was de
tailed to intjrview his excell
ency. The governor was found busy in his
office at the Portland lumber mill, and
greeted Jhe reporter with his accus
"We have harder times this year
getting money to pay for our logs as
delivered than for many years past,"
he said, as a man went out who was a
paymaster in a logging camp. "We
need more money in circulation."
'.'No doubt of that, governor, but I
callcil to inquire into the significance of
your Albina speech. It has caused
considerable talk, and it is freely in
timated that it was made as a prelude
to a big scheme, the outcome of which
might be your nomination for presi
dent at Omaha by the hird-party con
vention." ----- IS NOT A CANDIDATE.
"Oh, there's nothing in that; noth
ing whatever," responded the gover;
nor, earnestly, ."its all moonshine;
why, nobody knew till last Saturday
tnat x was going to muse that speecn.
No, I am not a candidate for president;
or vice president, or senator, or any
"But suppose, in consequence of that
)y Fklix .
speech and your former record, you
should be made the nominee?"
'I am not a candidate; that speech
was made with no reference to any
such event. It is not a supposable
case. Weaver will probably be the
candidate, and he is entitled to it."
'Do you think an out-and-out free-
coinage mnn, with that the main plank
in a platform not overburdened with
too many others, could gain some clec-
toriul votes, and thus throw the elec
tion into the house?"
"In tho event of the nomination of
Harrison by the republicans and
Cleveland by tho democrats," the gov
ernor respondod promptly and em
phatically, "such a mnn would carry
tho electorial votes of a number states
and be elected, because all the south
would votj for him in preference to
THE OMAHA CONVENTION.
"Well, governor, 'don't you see
that the Omuha convention, see
ing that in all probability you could
rarry Oregon in addition to all the
other states that Weaver or any other
candidate could, is likely to make you

Harvey Richardson. -
Following is a short sketch of
the life of Harver Richardson, of
Etna, nominee for commissioner on
the People's l'artv ticket, which we
know will be read with pleasure:
Mr, Richardson was born in Put
nam county, Missouri, in 1S53, but
his parents moved to Macon county,
Missouri, while he was quite young,
where thev remained until 1871,
at wnich time the fumily moved to
bhasta countv, California, and
from there Mr. Richardson came to
this county in 1S7S, and has re
sided here ever Fince. He has been
engaged in stock raising and farm
ing all the while, lie was post
master of Ktna for seven years, and
at present, in addition to farming,
is operating a mail route from
Sam's Valley to prospect, a dis
tance of fortv-five miles. It will
be seen by this, although getting
along in rears, Mr. Richardson is
sail an active and industrtous
worker. He is a reformer of long
years standing, and has taken an
active part this year in not only the
local reform, but is versed in na
tional affairs. The stories that he
would not accept the nomination as
nominee for commissioner, and
later, that he would withdraw, have
no foundation in fact. He will be
found at the helm till the last mo
ment, and as commissioner, will
serve the people honestly and
From Butt Cieek..
Editor Southern Oregon Mall:
There was a young lady out on
Butte Creek a few davs ago elec
tionecring for Mr. Deming for clerk,
and the most potont argument she
produced was that this was leap
year, and she expected to get mar
ried during the yenr, add that if &
R. Owen was elected that he was
so slow that he would not be able
to write out the marriage license,
and she would be left.
