GEORGE, Upon the Issues of the Day, and our Local Interests. The Court House was densely, packed, on last Saturday afternoon, with citizens of Albany and vicinity, of every shade and complexion ot political belief, gathered to hear the vTews on political and local topics of onr chosen standard-bearer, Hon. M. C George. The speaker was introduced by Judge Powell in a tew well-chosen remarks, and proceeded nt once to business. Mr. George premised his remarks hy saying that to "lance over so many familiar fices reminded him of home. It had become his duly, in response to the call ot the Re- ...i.li.viii Convention, to travel over tlie entire Suite, the better to become acquaint ed with the special needs and interests of the several sections of the State, ne would not en back into the past and tear open afresh the wounds of tlie fratricidal J struggle, when brother was arrayed against I brother, and neighbor against neighbor in deadly strife. He would hnry tljat sad record in eternal oblivion. When the j people, seeking to remedy tlie official corruption which the great commotion ot the civil war, naturally and of necessity brought to the surface, placed the Dem ocrats again in power fi Congress, the Democratic pa.-ty became again the party of action and not ot mere theories, and as such Is open to criticism. He proceeded to expoe in a masterly manner the true Inwardness of the extra session. He be lieves the uiases, whether Democratic or Republican, are honest aud sincere in their actions and convictions. He has faith in American civilization and in American citizens, both Northern and Southern. He paid a glowing tribute to the devotion and heroism of the rank and file of the Southern eano, who laid their lives a sacrifice on the altar of devotion to their j political lelief. What he had to say was not in condemnation of the masses of the j Democratic party, but he believed thej had been misled. He fears the influence of Democrats who are looking out, not for the riahts and interests of the people, but of tbeir own pockets and power. He said when caucuses and partisan politics endanger the liberties of the people, down with caucuses and partisans forever. He alluded to the shot-gun tactics and intimi dation process as operating to consolidate tbe solid South. The Democratic party ot the North had been used as the mere tool of the solid South. In 1SG3 the State of New York was carried tor Seymour by 30.000 fraudulent ballots, in tho city ot New York, under the management of Ross Tweed, Oakey Hall and their pals. Besides the solid South the I arty needs but a few Northern electoral vote. Hence the importance ot controlling a few of the great cities. Cutting off" the soirth end of Indiana where 14 per cent, of the voters cannot read or write, aud giving 10.000 Democratic majoHty, and the Five Points district of New York city, Seymour would not have received a single Northern electo ral vote. He briefly explained the super vision law, passed on account of the gl:ir-' ing frauds in New York city in 18(38, to supervise elections and spot fraud so as to secure fairness. This was the great object of Democratic attack and assault in the ex tra session, because imperiling the success of the Democratic leaders by and through fraud. The same object was aimed at In regard to the law for supervising elections in the South by V. S. Marshals. It is by existing law a criminal offense to use military force at the polls for any purpose but to preserve peace thereat. He would like to know the danger of U. S. military Interference when there were no U. S. soldiers to interfere. There were only 3,000 soldiers east of Omaha, of whom only a few hundred were stationed in Southern States in many of which there were none. He related the fact that the only authentic case ot military interference at elections that ever occurred in the United States was by order of Gen. Geo.B. McClellan, who was the idolized standard bearer ot the Democracy for the Presidency in 1864, and who gave orders to his subor dinates in 18G1 to stop disloyal persons from voting at an election in Maryland. He is opposed to large standing armies in time ot peace, but we need to have soldiers enough to protect settlers on the frontiers from Indian outrages. He believed the army, the elections and all sliould be under the control of law, and the law under the control of the good sense and sound reason of the masses of the people, ne believed in State Rights as strongly as any Democrat in the land. By our Con stitution the control of all national affairs had been given to the general government; purely local affairs to the States, and all purely personal affairs to the discretion of the individual people. It is essential that the rights and constitutional prerogative of the States should be piotected. When ever they are nsnrped and overridden our Government is a failure and our liberties at an end. If ever the Republican party should take a position inimical to State Rights as contemplated by the Constitu tion, he would denounce it ; but the per nicious doctrine ot State Sovereignty Is the baneful parent of secession, disorder and anarchy, the mere prelude to over- throw, despotism aud eternal enslavement of the people. This he clearly illnsttatcd. Tlie Constitution has provided tlie general imvonimput as the common judge to preside over and regulate the several States, each the peer of the other, and sovereign as related to each other, but subordinate to the supreme constitutional federal direction. Among these Constitu tional powers ot the general government he held the right to regulate the election of the Senators and Representatives con stituting its general legislative assembly, that Is, Congress. It is conceded by Democratic precedents that Congress lias power to regulate times holding congress ional elections. Then It also followa that It has power to regulate the manner like wise.. He handled several of tbe buncombe, blood-and-thnuder resolves of the Dem ocratic platform without gloves, and iv,-rvhe!n;e! JI;eiii 'with deserved ridicule, in fact, the fool element In the Democratic presentation is so preponderant over even the death's-head and bloody cross-bones aspect of it, t hat the speaker could hardly touch its oracular resolves nt any point without convulsing his auditors with Irre pressible men-iment. He showed up the true Inwardness of the Democratic tactics ofhe extra session in tacking political legislation upon the appropriation bills, and paiiegyrizort the pat! lot ie firmness and consistency of President Hayes. Tlie Democratic br'gadiers had to back down after all, and the election laws tand unrepealed to-day. Said he ; "Some may shy they didut back down. Well, however that may be, I gness there was a good deal more strain on the breeching than on the collar along toward the last." He made several humorous hits on White ikers historic ride across the conti nent, on canned provisions, to vote tor Jim Blackburn, and his memorable and in tact only, so fir as known, speech on the subject or Blackburn's proposition to wipe out all the war legislation. Mr. fienrm disclaimed any intention of misrepresent ing or. taking any advantage of Gov. Whiteaker in his absence. I Would soy nothing about him other than complimen tary, excepting his public record : but he challenged anybody to mention any bill that had been passed, introduced or drafted by him In his whole term extra session and all. 'lie scathed the member for his reprehensible inaction or Incapacity in having done absolutely nothing for Ore gon's local interests her commerce and industrial interests which need so much attention. He rightly said, and the au dience endorsed him, that the people of Oregon are siek and tired of partisan legis lation. We want more attention to the interests ot the people and less to the ag grandizement of politicians. He should look out for our narrow gauge railroads and onr I. road gauge railroads, our har bors, etc. He then gave his views in re gard to the vast internal improvements needed hy our State, lie had lived in Oregon 25 years, and was proud to be call ed a "Linn coiiutv bov." His interests nthl affections are with the people of this comity, and Democrats and Republicans alike know it. In the nominating con vention his I.inti county friends stood by him first, last, and all the time. Tie he friendship of Ms early associates and old neighbors, and repelled with indigna tion any imputation that he would mis represent meir interests. lie called at tention to an improvement he deemed essential ana necessary to the interests of this particular section. , He believed in a narrow gauge railroad to TAQLIXA BAY and the improvement of that harbor, and would exert his utmost effoits ii: Con gress to seenre those lienelits, just- as he had done when in the State Legislature as a member from the eounty ot Multno mah. He was under no ' pledge except such pledges as he made openly and pub Hcly from the rostrum. He related the history of the Yaquiua Bay measure that passed the State Legislature through his efforts when a member fiom Portland. He thought Whiteaker'j sudden activity in the Yaquina Bay matter ju-t before the election, looked too suspicious. He criti cised that gentleman's inaction in not hav ing brought forward the matter earlier, in time to have got it through before this present election. He feared the $40,000 item in the appropriation budget would be forgotten after the election was over. It looks bad, yet he hopes the item will pas. If it did it would be no more than duty on Whiteaker's part. He referred very fclic itiotisly to tho CliAVE CHAKGE made ngak.st him that' he was a young man. In the Southern part ot the State he had dissembled what he could and hail hoodwinked the people by a display of a few artihcia gray hairs procured for the purpose, but here lie was too well known to pass that dodge, and so he would square ly acknowledge and own up that he is young man. aud, unfortunately, it is difficulty he has labored under all his life, But he would venture to make one prom ise : Give him time enough and he will be as old as anybody. He concluded with a tew earnest words or endorsement tor his brethren, the other candidates on the ticket After passing a fervent eulogy on Judges Watson, Waldo and Lord, the respective candidates for the Supremo bench, Mr. George closed his most eloquent, forcible and sensible address by thanking his au dience for their earnest attention, and ex pressing regrets that his appointment would not permit bis longer tarrying with us. Mr. George's address held the eager and unwearied attention of the entire audience to the close. ' It was a manly, clear, out spoken and forcible exposition of the status of the leading political issues ol the day. and in particular of the local issues that are of vital concern to us of the Willamette Valley. His arraignment of the culpable inactivity and delinquency ot the present Representative was just and fitting. The people of the upper Willamette require an explanation from that gentleman that nothing has been attempted in regard to the Yaquina Bay improvement, which our Interests demands, until just a few days before the election, for political buncombe, when action cannot be taken until the cri sis is over, when it can be Ignored with im punity. Such a course cannot be too strongly denounced. The past reputation of Mr. George for industry and persistency as well as the vigor and energy which ' he brings to every .work which he undertakes. his eminent ability as a worker and speak er, disinterested fidelity and sound good sense, are guarantees that he will prove one ot the most, it not the most, efficient and successful workers for the real Interests ot Oregon In Congress, ot all tlie represen tatives she has ever sent there. Linn coun ty is especially fortunate iu his selection, and lie will be elected by a sweeping ma jority throughout the State Pendleton will soon have a steam fire engine.. luiiHirtunt laeta for Tazpayen. The office ot county Ja lge is the most important office in the county. We have said this before, but it Is a truth that can not be too often Impressed npon the minds of voters. The office requires to be filled by a man of more than ordinary ability, possessing a sound judgrncnt.good common sense, and who will honestly and fearless ly discharge hi duties. I offering Judge Flint! naVnnr candidate for the office ot County Judge, every requisite here men tioned is filled. In ability he Is the peer otany lawyer in ;he district, and during a long and most successful practice, he has gained the reputation of being perfect in all probate matters. Judge Flinn is a ripe scholar, a close student, an indefatigable worker, and iu his hands the Interests of the county ami its taxpayers will be safe. Judge Flinn di l not seek the ofllce, and it was only after tlie urgent reqnest ot our best citizens that he consented to become a candidate. The salary attached to the office of County Judge Is not at all com mensurate with the duties and labor of the office, and it is really a sacrifice to Judge Flinn to give up his large and profitable practice ft snch an office. But he con sented to become a candidate tor the office for reasons suited above, and while to him financially, it will be a loss should he be elected, it Is of greatest importance to the taxpayers that he should fill the office. If the taxpayers of Linn di-sire a decrease Ot taxation it Is absolutely necessary that a change of administration in its affairs sl.ould take place ; it is of the utmost con sequence that a mail who thoroughly un derstands county affairs, is duly posted at all law points, who is personally interest ed as a property holder, and has the nerve to say 'no' to any measure calculated to waste the revenues of the county, should be elected to fill the office. We offer just such a man iu Judge Flinn, a-iki ask the serious attention of voters to these facts. Our C'iml!flutC9 tor- County 'oiuiuiHlun frs. In our candidates for County OoinnU-ion-er the uoiuinn lions are specially happy. For probity, honesty v Lnduess capacity and sound judgment. Messrs. Marion Cunningham ai-d John GeisemUirfer have no -peers in Linn county. Both gentle men have the fullest confidence of their ni IghlxM-s, and the business interests of the county In their liands will be looked after and scrutinized as closely as if their own Individual business.. No better or more energetic amf progressive gentlemen are to be found ; yet at the same time, while favoring all improvements calculated to advance the general interests, In the way of roads, bridges, etc.. the closest economy will be used, and no money will be used for the benefit of partisans or to secure partisan ends and every effort to draw wut-jr iruiu me puonc purse illegally or without ilue service being rendered, will tan. l heir aim will be to give an honest and economical admhiisfraMon of county fT.,M s.i... """.u i5iiiuuiii)'.ure way to re duce the burdens of taxation that now bear so heavily upon us. A Bad .Selection. The selection of Port Orford as the point for constructing the harbor of refuge, should the selection not be set aside, will prove disastrous to Oregon s interests. It wit. require ten or fifteen millien dollars and a quarter of a centurv in It ranntrne. Hon . auu when completed, it will be al most valueless for the purposes for which the improvement was demanded. But the greatest objection is that the immense annual appropriations from the national treasury to keep the work going, will de prive Oregon of any other aid whatever until its completion. The selection is pe culiarly unfortunate, and is so regarded all over the State. A more unfavorable point could not have been selected on the entire coast. We hope that Congress will eall in the $150.000 appropriated to com mence the work and condemn the selection A point could and should have been select ed that would have met the wants of our shipping and furnished a good shipping point for the produce of the Willamette Valley. The candor and fairness with which Hon M. O. George treated all questions in his speech on Satnrday in this city, received the highest encomiums of the many Demo crats present on the occasion. Ami we venture the assertion that Ilia handsome maimer In which lie rt-ferred to Gov vt hiteaker has not a counterpart in the political history of the State. He said that so far as the charge of bribery against Mr. Whiteaker was concerned, he knew nothing ; I he charge was made hy promi nent. Democrats ; he (George) personally had no knowledge of any snch transaction. Mr. George is whining golden opinions hy the conscientious fairness with which he is conducting the canvass. We want just such honest, fair minded, conscientious, able men in our legislative halls as Hon. M.O.George ami tbe more we have of them the better for the peace, honor aud tranquility ot our country. The plank in tlie Republican platform In regard to the local interests ot the State, demanding at the hands ot tho General Government, among other thing, the Im provement of Yaquina Bay, was written by Hon. M. C. George, and through his influence inserted in the platform. Mr. George has always been in favor of this improvement, and is not therefore a new convert. With Mr. George iu Congress, we should be snre of tbe necessary appro priation, becanse he wonld wield an influ ence that our present memler never could hope to wield did he stay tliere a life-time. Eight or nine of the thirty-seven general laws which tvere passed at the last session of the Oregon Legislature, were introduc ed or drafted by Hoii. M. C. George, This shows that lie was not idling away bis time, but was at work In the interest of the tax. payers who sent him there.

Williams shot Charles Mitchell. in the head t.vice, and at last accounts it was thought im t : 1. 1 , i. . ....... (jiismuiu ir iiiii) ia lire. Williams was foreman at the Cathlamet cannery. Mitch ells wile was divorced from him at the last term of court, and he blamed Williams for it. Williams had just arrived on the steamer from Cathlamet with Mitchell's wife and child, and seeing themapproach, drew a pistol and approaching Williams declared you can not go a step farther." But Williams was too quick for bim, aud shot twice before Mitchell could fire. It will not escape attention that the pres ent system ot representation in the national Republican 'Convention does not allow the proper measure of influence to those sections which must be relied npon for the votes of the Republican nominee. Thus fifteen Southern States, all of which are hopelessly Democratic, send 270 Re publican delegates, or within thirty dele gates ol as many as fifteen strong Republi can State are entitled to. The fifteen Republican States will cast 150 electoral votes for the Republican nominee, while not a Republican electoral vote can with any certainty be estimated to be cast by eitlier of the fifteen Sotitliern States. Yet their 270 delegates, combined with a meagre minority of the de'egates from the Northern States, may determine the nomi nation tor Piesident. In Congress political plof ing seems to have given place to some extent to the hard work of the session, and its accumu lated bills are piled high, while the regu lar appropriations force themselves upon' the attention of the members. Oregon is looking forward to the passage of a bill that will insure the payment of the river and harbor appropriations -JiuUy promised, hoping almost against hope that they were not reported merely Jbr political effect. It is idle to expect much from our present delegation. With Slater's influence so greatly inferior to that which has looked to Oregon's interests hi the United States Senate for six years preceding his incum bency. Grover nursing his addled brains at a water cure iu the vain hope of getting them back to their former cunning, and Whiteaker with his total lack of ability aud influence in the House, we cannot expect that Oregon will get more than a casual mention in the National Legislature. Our cople have, however, a better pros pect in the near future and bide their time with what patience they can command. lice - The reason Tildeuites believe that he win oe the iemoeratic nominee tor the Presidency is that he is the only candidate among the many spoken ot who has the coin with which to run the canvass. His last argument will be: "Gentlemen, I have $2,000,000, a mere bagatelle to me, which I will spend to secura my election iiuiuiuaicu, jiui ns nu win nave no competition on rhis "lay out," he will doubtless get the nomination.
