The statement has been going the
rounds of the press that ''Bryan has re

Chairman Doneen of the county de
mocracy is announced with flourish of
trumpets ac haviDg said that "the dem

take something more than the usual
effort to pull the party up to the 963
votes ca9t in the election of 1898.
The result of the election in Oregon
tells the story of tbe drift in politics in
1900. All tbe non-republicanß in that
state—tbe democrats, the populists and
the silver ex-republicane—united on a
ticket which was supported by all the re
sources at the command of thope ele
ments. Oregon's was a decidedly ugly
fusion for the republicans, as far as the
indications before the election went. The
contest in that state was the republi
cans against the field. The republicans
swept tbe Afield, electing their state
ticket, headed by the supreme judge, and
choosing both candidates for congress.
In the election of 1898 the republican
nominee for governor carried Oregon by
10,000, a lead which was never closely
approached except in the republican
tidal wave year of 1894. This year,
with no candidate for governor, and a
consequent less interest in the state
campaign, the republicans carried the
bead of tbe state ticket, Wolverton for
supreme judge, by over 11,000, accord
ing to present uncompleted returns.
Tongue for congress gained more than
1000 in the First congressional district
and Moody more than 2000 in the Sec
ond district. Quite a satisfactory vote
with which to open the presidential cam
For week 9 prior to the Oregon election
of last week democratic editors were pre
paring blasts to be touched off when the
count was made. But they are saying
not a word. For the first day or two,
when the figures were young, they im
agined that the republican lead of 10,
--000 in 1898 had been pared down to
5000 to 7000, but hardly were their
glorifications circulated until it was dis
covered that Oregon republicans had
won the greatest victory in the history
of the state. The republican lead did
not stop at 10,000. It climbed steadily
up to more than 11,000. Then demo
crats ready to jubilate collapsed. Any
other subject is more interesting to
them than is the Oregon election. This
contest foreshadows the sentiments of
the people of the nation upon the im
portant issues espoused by the repub
licans and fought by the antis. Expan
sion, gold standard and Puerto Rican
tariffs have been passed upon. The re
sult in Oregon is a substantial repub
lican gain, and as went Oregon in June,
so will go the nation in November.
The Chicago Chronicle, the leading
democratic paper in the west, says the
result of tho Oregon election "demon
strates the impracticability of carrying
for the democratic candidates this year
the class of far western states in which
the silver sentiment was supposed to pre
dominate." This is true, and the as
sertion of the Chronicle that theee states
are not worth special tffort does not de
tract from the importance of its conclu
sions, adds the Tacama Ledger. The
Oregon election has shown another thing
equally important—that the far western
states cannot be carried for anti expan
sion any more than they can for free
silver. Mr. Bryan's tour in Washington,
Oregon and California, for the purpose
of preaching present calamity and future
disaster if nnti expansion and free silver
were not carried was time worse than
wasted. It increased the republican
majority in Oregon and will have a
similar effect in the other coast states.
Kansas has made another record.
Not content with plastering the walls of
her state buildings with cancelled mort
gages; not content with doubling her
bankjdeposits since 189G, Kansas now
has but one inmate in the state poor
farm. Dining-halle and bedrooms that
a few years ago were crowded with the
idle, with the hungry, and with the
poorly clad, now echo and re-echo the
solitary tramp of their one sole inmate,
who is without kith or kin, and who is
too old and feeble to work. But one
sad relic remains in the Kansas poor
houee, to remind the taxpayers of the
days when its free soup, free bed and
free clothes were donated to those who
were compelled to idleness under a demo
cratic administration, and under its
,iolicy of destruction to all American
industries, both of farm and factory.
E. C. Benedict, long a leading New
York democrat has this to cay: "The
gross outrages perpetrated on the good
name of the democratic party by the
present managers of a party by that
name with scarcely a vestige of the old
democratic gospel left in it, makes me at
present a political orphan. I am practi
cally disfranchised by their action, while
their infidelity to democratic principles
has provoked infidelity to the name to
euch an extent that I greatly fear we
can never again succeed under it. lam
not alone in this orphanage. Ou the
contrary, I have not a single acquaint
ance among my democratic friends with
whom I have conferred, who does not
share this feeling with me.''
If it were not for the good times, if it
were not for the Chicago platform, if it
were not for their past record, if it were
not that McKinley has been such a
promise keeper, if it were not that the
American people know a good thing
when they have it, and if it wtre not for
a few more it's, it would be safe to bet
money on democratic success this fall.

COLFAX GAZETTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON, JUNE 15, 1900.
The Omaha World-Herald was Mr. ■
Bryan's perßonal organ in 180G, and
during that campaign it made the
prophecy daily that in the event of Mc-
Kinley'* election the depression and die
trees among the working classes would
be widespread. The best proof of the
falsity of this prophecy is found on the
want pages of the World-Herald. The
last insue at hnnd contains the adver
tisements of two females and seven
males who want Htuations, while on the
same page the "help wanted" advertise
ments ask for 107 females and 11")
males. This is in addition to the "agents
wanted," and does not include the ad
vertisement fur 1000 men for railroad
work. The calamity prophecy was a
failure in Mr. Hryan's own state, as it
The democrats, fusionistp, populists,
and general kickers against a govern
ment for the betterment of all can look
at the result in Oregon with alarm, says
the Walla Walla luion. It indicates
that the great American people are true
to the Hag: that the American voter is
etill patriotic and in favor of the exten
sion of American territory, of American
trade, and of American freedom. It
means that the progress that has been
made in America during the past 40
years is to continue, and that our gov
ernment is advancing with the world
and keeping in the front rank. As Ore
gon went, so will go the nation.
Records of the postoffice department
show that the amount of mail matter of
all classes in the I'nited States, in 1899,
weighed 1,565,666,508 pounds. This
was enough to fill 39,142 cars with
freight. This record was the largest in
the history of the country, and was due
to the remarkable prosperity and unpre
cedented business activity now existing.
In dull democratic times the business of
the postoffice always declines.

all, judging by the following comparison

the (iarfield Enterprise. Unwarranted
use is made of the term ''fine business
men in this connection. Our county's
business should not be made a school
where officers receive their first knowl
edge of accounts, and yet it is well
known that some of the men nominated
on the democratic ticket are men who
never saw the inside of a ledger. It is
not enough to say that the work can be
done by clerks. Our county offices should
not be made sinecures for the reward of

BOILS # CARBUNCLES
These unwelcome visitors usually appear in the spring or summer, when the blood is making at. extra effort to frr
§ itself from the many impurities that have accumulated during the winter months.
Carbuncles which are more painful and dangerous, come most frequently on the back of the neck
eating great holes in the flesh, exhaust the strength and often prove fatal. Boils are regarded by some
people as blessings, and they patiently and uncomplainingly endure the pain and inconvenience under
the mistaken idea that their health is being benefited, that their blood is too thick anyway, and this i
feature splan of thinning it. The blood is not too rich or too thick, but is diseased is full of poison ai
unless relieved the entire system will suffer. The boil or carbuncle gives warning of serious internal
troubles, which are only waiting for a favorable opportunity to develop. Many an old Bore running ulcer
