Vote Your Principles, whether it
Helps or Not.
Some of our friends, the enemy j
say that as either Harrison or
Cleveland is sure to be elected, the
duty of the voter is not to vote in
the air, but for one of these. As
suming the case of a voter who has
no choice between the democratic
and republican parties, and who is
in sympathy with the principles of
a minor party, do you really think
it that man's duty to withhold his
support from what he believes to
be best, in order to save his vote?
If so, the inference would seem to
be that one should not support a
principle for principle's sake, but
only when there is a hope of being
on the winning side. Some will'call
such action contemptible cowardice.
The only value of the franchise is
to effect the political measures we
desire. To place one's self on the
strong side when the strong side
represents what one is opposed to,
is rank apostacy. The argument
that this is peculiarly a campaign
which calls for a support of the old
parties ia so ancient that the third
party man must be excused if ha
passes over it with a weary sigh.
Some peoplo concede that there
may be occasions when it is the du
ty of men to stand upland be count
ed by way of protest and rebuke,
but add that such occasions are
rare and that it cannot be pleaded
this year. Therein we(and by we
is meant a good many folks) difitr.
To use the ballot "simply to de
clare as a purely practical thing"
which one of two given men shall
be elected may be a very short
Powderli and Dr. MeGlynn
Hold Forth In New Yort
New York, Oct 26, There were
no vacant seats in Cooper Union
tonight. The hall was filled with
enthusiastic members of the people's
party, gathered to listen to the ora
tory of General Master Workman
Pewderly and Dr. McGlyn. Reso
lutions were adopted indorsing the
Omaha platform. Powderly's whole
address was a denunciation of the
democratic party. He denounced
Governor Flower vehemently for
sending troops to Buffalo to protect
the "gigantic railroad corporations,"
who had their cars insured purpose
ly, and then side-tracked them to
be burned. He said:
"We men of Pensy 1 vania are will
ing to accept the charge of treason
in shooting downjthe dastardlyjPink
ertons at Homestead, and we thank
God for it."

Denver, Colo., Oct. 26. Chair
man McKinley, representing the
Cleveland faction of the democratic
party of this state has just returned
from New York, where he had been
in conference with the national
democratic committee. As a result
of the plans discussed there, it is
said the Cleveland electors will be
withdrawn and the people's party
candidates be substituted.

Terre Haute has not had such an
overflow of humanity even at ' the
great races, as greeted the national
lender on Oct. 17. It so happened
that the representatives of the as
sociated press and all the local op-
erators. were suffering from n at-
no word concerning the great' up-
I rising reached the daily press out.
side of the city. Such a crowd at
either of the old party rallys would
be heralded as 35,000 people. Two
vast wigwams in different parts of
the city were kept hot, the General
speaking in both.
Now You Hit It.
What the South should pray to be
delivered from is the merciless dom
ination of the aristocracy, and the
political unrest manifested in the
People's party movement shows the
effort that is being made to throw
off the yoke. Until this is accom
plished there will be no industrial
prosperity in the South that can be
compared to that of the North.
The people's party managers are
sorry" that Nathan Pierce was put
on the democratic electoral ticket,
and believe that it will damage
them in the coming election; but
they do not seem to have the nerve
to take him off their own. This
would be the most effective way to
resent the gratitous impertinence
put upon them. Nothing less will
convince the public that the people's
party has not become the tail of
the democratic kite knowingly and
willi ngly. Oregonian.
The above is all "rot" and that
the Oregonian should publish such
stuff" as this proves that it is on its
last "legs" in the endoavor to "wor
ry" People's party voters. If the
democrats see fit to withdraw their
electors and substitute People's par
ty electors, that is their business
and will harm no one but the re
publicans, who realise that Oregon
is slipping from their grasp.
In some counties," says the Salem
Statesman, "Pierce's name will appear
on tbo ballots in three plaoea, under the
group heading's of democrats, people's,
and democrat-poo pit's. In otkers it
will appear -under any two headings
the clerk may hays desired, while ia
there the 'name occurs but once, in
some counties under one heading and
la others under another. Thus it will
be seen the tickets will be printed ia
as many as 10 or SO different wars. In
(act the law has a different construction
(or nearly every county. Secretary of
State McBride believes Pierce's name
should be printed only in one place
in the people's group, as a "democrat-
people's." Attorney-General Cham
berlain, a democrat, thinks his name
should go in the democratic group as
well as among the populists."
A worse muddle cannot be im
agined than that which is voiced in
the above sentiments. We don't
thank the democrats for meddling
with the People's Party ticket and
every good third party voter will
agree with us. If the democrats
saw fit to withdraw their elector
they were welcome to do so but
they might have let the People's
party ticket alone and not jeopard
ized our success thusly. Our ad
vice to every intending Weaver vo
ter is to vote the People's party
ticket STRAIGHT and vote for
each name but ONCE. Let the
democrats do all the withdrawing,
combining, fusing or whatever they
wish to call it, but we say to all
People's party voters Wash your
hands of any of these schemes or
fakes, for as we have already seen
they are used by the republicans to
whip the weak-kneed back into the
old rut, and will disrupt our party
sooner or later. Every vote the
democrats give us is a clear gain
and makes success that much more
sure, but a trade or fuse is different
it means defeat all around, there
fore don't fuse or trade and dont let
these fakes scare you into voting
against your honest convictions.
The democrats have endorsed one
of our electors. The same thing is
being done by the republicans in
almost every "solid" state in the
south but this is not fusion, as the
republicans would have you believe.
Invite republicans and democrats
to vote with us, but don't trade and
all will be well. ' Oregon is ours,
Within the next few days, every
quality that goes toward making
up the true retormer will be sorely
tried. Untiring and unremitting
efforts will be made to break through
the ranks and stampede the forces
of retorm. Nothing that money,
experience or organised cunning
can bring to bear will be omitted
in this last desperate attempt
Therefore we say to you have
courage and be on your guard.
Tha Supreme Moment
The critical moment is here. The
hour when all manner of remarks
are afloat tending to sow distrust
and doubt through the ranks of our
people. The most subtle agencies
known to human ingenuity are jjow
in vogue to scatter and.befuddle the
heretofore resolute voter.
Mrs. Lease Denies It.
New Yore, Oct. 18. Mrs. Mary
E. Lease, who stumped the South
with Gen.' Weayer, the People's
party candidate for president, tele
graphs a morning paper as follows:
"The special going the rounds of
the press in regard to an interview
in which I am reported to have ad
vised the Populists to vote for Har
rison, or that a vote fof Weaver was
a vote for Cleveland, is unqualified
ly false. I would consider it a
public calamity for either Harrison
or Cleveland to be elected.
