Poor Spoon Ben !
Elections were held ill Keveral of the
States Tuesday, mid at the time of om
going to press, returns are incomplete.

Danville, Va., was the «cene of an
insurrection, within the past lew days,
and Itichuioiid wart threatened with n
rtimilar dsrtturbanve. 'I lie colored peo
ple are all out of humor over the re
cent civil rights decision, andnre liable
to act quite indiscretely.

Springfield, Mo., was sadly
victimized by one on Monday last,
when n great deal of property wus de
stroyed, five people killed and aboil
thirty olliers were wounded. It would
seem that the cooling atmosphere of

Much a thing wan due this northwestern

which support them.
The good hrother down the “ crick”
«ay« lie in willing to divensg the turili'
question if we consider ourselves
“posted.” We right here say that we
are not posted, and there are very few
people on the face of theearth that are
posted on the tariff question, and not
a single one of them live in the nasal
shades of Yamhill. That is the reason
why people generally stick a newspa
per in the Htove that undertakes to
ilirtcnss the tai iff question; but we ale
going to stand on tiptoe, and at the top
of our voice ask one question. Why is
a protective tariff on home manufac
tures wrong, when in nine cases out ot
every ten, it Hiiccei da in bringing down
the price of the article manufactured.

would condone the reduced tax on tor
eign wool, and in tile other that it
would Htlengthen liceiirte um against
The republican party
therefore, in the opinion of thene vot-
eiH , iiiUHt be taught that if it relaxcrt
protection or ci adert proliiliition it w ill
be defeated. Thia irt of course very
rtigniticant. It is the position that was
taken by the liberty party in New Yoik
in 1H41, and which defeated Henry
Clay. That event showed that to an
important part of the \\ liig party the
restriction of slavery was a more vital
question tlinn any other, and in nine
years from that election the repub
lican party was foimi'll. The result in
Ohio h I iowk iih plainly that to an ini
portant part of the republican party
high protection and prohibition an
paramount issues and that party sin-
cess is endangered if the extreme po-
rtition upon both irtHiicK is not taken.”
" The figures show an iniineiiNe prohi
bition vote—a vote wliieli, while it
show« no tendency toward denioctai'y.
xiguitii'K plainly that prohibition i-
more iniportaut than lepiiblieanisiu to
an immense IwMiy of citizens. In Iowa
this feeling in so strong that the repub
lican inirty pro< l.iimed prohibition, anti
has cart itnl the state by a large ninior-
ity. In Maine, on the other hand, tin
prohibiiionistH have det iileil to abnn
don the republican party as too slm

If the prohibitionist» refuse to support

of a free and independent government
of the people. At the close of the day
we ask the question “have the ‘ peo
ple voted?” Municipal elections are
not for I he pui pos« of expressing feel
ings of patriotism or to defend a spe
cial party. They are only an organiz
ed system for home protection—protei -
tiou of health, life, money, property,
or nionc', etc. Therefore, the pel sons
owning .mines, property oi money,w ho
UK'directly inten sted in the health,
peace, p *o«perity anil general good of
society, «lionlil have been tin- repre-
sentativ ■» at the polls to day, while
only th.' men voted.
There are twenty-five or thirty wid
ows an.I maiden ladies in this« ity who
own pro icrty which is assessed and
taxes d ily collected lor all city purpos
es, equally with, besides the many
wives v. io own taxable property sepa
rate f roil tlieir husbands. Have they
voted, to-day .* There are more than
double that number of men who don’t
own n dollar's worth of taxable prop
erty here, who have tin special interest
in anything which is fortlie permanent
good of the town. They are only trnu-
rtient men. some of them having no
home or property in any place. Have
they voted, to-day f llh, yes! they
nave all voted if they have so chosen,
ami expressed their opinions in regard
to tlie future welfareof tax-paying and
law-abiding people of the city. Too
litany of them don't care a tig wliat
the result may be. But these widows,
wives and mothers, whose homes and
property ate here for protection, whose
children are here demanding the sale
guard of good society and good laws,
have not voted.
1 have before me a “Citizens’ Tick
et.” In tlie name of justice we ask
wliat is a citizen ? The 14th Amend
ment to the Federal Constitution says:
" All persons born or naturalized in the
Dinted Slates and are subject to the juris
diction thereof, and of tlie State wherein
they reside, are citizens."
Are not these widows, wives and mo
thers residents of tlie State of Oregon,
of the city of McMinnville .’ Are they
not subject to the jurisdiction of this
city ? Do not they pay taxes equally
for the support of thin jurisdiction !
Why are they not treated as citizens !
The polls have closed : the “Citizens’
Ticket,” I suppose, has been support
ed, but the “people" have not done it.
For shame, men, that such injustice
should be longer tolerated.
widows, mothers and wives want tin
power of the ballot and as citizens id
this commonwealth ate justly entitled
to it. No, we repeat, the “ people”
have not voted to d:n
‘inly a puvi-
liged class li.ixe, and that privilege
simply an accident of birth. W in n
one-luilf of the citizens of any State,
county or town aie di tiied .i von « in
elections, and \ el Lehi equally K'spon
slide for all liabilities witli the ollici
half, which has n voire, it is iinqin
tionably a libel to say that the citizen-
ot pi'oiue have voteil.
