A careful investigation of the alleged
‘union’ party will reveal the fact that it is
composed largely of self-appointed lead
ers, anil it is belter calculated tn disrupt
than to unite the reform forces of the
state, and that all who went into it from
patriotic motives are being misled.

Pennoyer pretends to want to unite those

he insists, at the instance of Mr. Jones,
national chairman of the democratic par
ty, that this tie done in the name and
under the leadership of the democratic
party, (of which he assumes to be the
head and front in Oregon.) In support
of this position, he claims that the demo
cratic party has abandoned its false gods,
and, therefore, there is no logical excuse
for the further existence of the people's
party, either state or national.
There can be no united action with the
people’s party tinder the banner of the
democratic party and its terms of capit
ulation. nor under the leadership of Mr
Cooper's so-called ‘union’ party.

literally saved from the insane asylum by
the timely influence of Dr. Pierce’s Favorite
Prescription. It is the one perfect and pos
itive specific for every derangement of wo
man’s special organism. It is a scientific
and permanent cure for those severe,
chronic, complicated cases which doctors
usually consider hopeless. It is the only
medicine of its kind devised by an educated
and skilled physician.
Mrs. Sarah K. Rains, of Dayton, Cass Co., Mo.,
in a letter to Dr. Pierce, writes: " It was in thè
winter of 1890 that my sufferings commenced. It
was close to my time of confinement. I took the
grip, and that with the labor pains all went to
r»y head. I suffered dreadfully, and when I gave
birth to ray little boy I kept getting worse I
