The Salem Statesman of last Sun
'day, in speaking of N. B. Humphrey,
Republican candidate for Prosecuting
Attorney, sava ho is " a vounsr man of
good legal attainments." Now every
person in this community knows that
his legal attainments are of the most
obsenre sort, and that he haa never
-attained any character as a lawyer
even at the local bar. The Statesman
also says that Humphrey has always
been "firm, consistent, and straight
forward in his political views neither
a changling nor a trifier in political
Tir5no.ini pa." Vnw thia littln fitnrv
will do to gall the Salemites with,

nominee, Mr. Shaw, who is a lawyer
of acknowledged ability and a digni

man. Two years ago we carried this Dis
trict by a handsome majority an 1 we
can do it again if Democrats only do
their duty next Monday. Our party
pride and .prestige is at stake in this
matter, and we trust no Democrat
will so far forget his duty as to vote
for the Radical candidate and thus

Let every Democrat, remember,
that upon his individual vote may de
pend the success of our Congressional
candidate, next Monday. No Demo
crat should fail to go to the polls and
cast his vole for John Burnett. But
few Democrats in Oregon desire that
Greeley should be endorsed by the
National Democratic Convention. If
we carry the State next Monday, it
will stimulate that Convention to make
a sqnaro toed Democratic fight. If
we los Oregon as California, New
Hampshire and Connecticut were lost
at the last elections in thoso States
the National Democratio Convention
will see no hope for our cause, save in
a coalition with the Independent Re
publicans.' Hence, we believe, the re
sult of our State election next Mon
day will have much to doiu determin
ing our status as a party in the com
ing national contest. A vote for Bur
nett, is a vote for a straight Demo
cratic Presidential ticket and a sound
Democratio platform. .
Democrats, remember ! that Wilson
is the purchased tool of a grasping
monopolist, while Burnett is the
pledged servant of the people, having
no 44 rings " to serve, no self-interests
to gratify. W ilson is a vulgar buf
foon and boorish clown, while Bur
nett is a dignified, high-minded, cour
teous gentleman. Wilson is a ealvan-
ixed whiskey-bloat, while Burnett is a
sober, tempcrat man. We defeated

years ago. Ltt us now bury him un

Remember, that John J. Shaw a
lawyer of known anil acknowledged
reputation, a gentleman of enviable
moral character,' and a Democrat of
undoubted loyalty and fealty to the
party is our nominee for Prosecuting
Attorney for this District. Let no
Democrat fail to voto for him next
Monday. Capt. N. B. Humphrey is
not entitled to your votes by any rule
of reasoning or of politics. He is the
Radical nominee let his party elect
him if they can. We appeal to all
Democrats to stand by the nominee
of our party and aid in securing bis
Remember, that a vote for our
Legislative candidates is a vote
against the corrupt appliances of the
Railroad Monarch and in favor ot the
interests of the people. The Locks
at the Falls of the Willamette must
be speedily constructed and preserved
to the State. If Holladay s tools are
in the majority in the Legislature
those Locks will never be built or
they will be speedily tamed over
to his selfish grasp, thus leaving
the commercial and transportation in
terests of the wholo Willamette Val
ley in his power. We can confident
ly and proudly assert that our Dem
ocratic candidate fur the Legislature
are not for sa'e. Remember that the
next Legislature is to elect a United
States Senator in place ot the Radical,
Corbett, and it is important that the
Democrats secure a majority in that
body We now have one Democratic
U. ' S. Senator. Let us ; elect Bur
nett and carry tho Legislature, and
Oregon will enjoy the proud distinc

representation at the National 'Capi

States in the Union that can boast as
much at the present time.

Remember, that trading votes is al
ways dangerous. Make no "swaps"

TH3 ''LIII3 AST SWINDLE."
Tho last issue of tho Jointer has"
an Article urging Republicans to vote
for men for the Legislature who will
see that " no more 'litigant' swindles
may bo perpetratod, causing you to
pay $21 for notices that, before its en
actment, the same1 paper charged but
$7 50 for."
We now propose to show, by the
"advertising rates" published by the
Jlf'jlstcr, that tho same advertisement
in that organ would cost the poor
litigant more than it does iu this
paper, under tho existing law. Take
an advertisement of four squares
Uuder the litigant law, (twelve lines
to the square), . this would be forty
eight lines; but under tho llegitteis
published standard of ten lines to the
square, a four square advertisement
under the litigant law, would bo to
tho Jlegister uaarlyjloe squaresjust
four squares and eight-tenths so
nearly, indeed, that it would, by any
publisher, be counted five squares
Now for tho figures: a four square
advertisement, uuder the litigant la,
for first insertion, comes to 810. At
$1 per square for each subsequent in
sertion, it would amount to $12 more,
making a total of for the four,
weeks. Now, by tho lleijuter"a owu
rates, published on its first page, tho
first insertion of the same advertise
ment would amount to 810. iho
three subsequent insertions, at 81 per
square, would amount to 815 dollars,
making a total of 8-5! which the
Register would charge for the same
advertisement that costs tho poor
swindled litigant, by this atrocious
act ot a Democratio Legislature, tho
sum ot 8-2 ! Thus we have plainly
shown that tho 44 liticaut swiudlo"
saves to the advertiser, on every four
square advertisement, three dollars!
Wo have heard this act assailed by
those who didn't know the difference
between a power press aud a thresh
ing machine; but we did not expect
a pnpr, claiming respectability,
to publish such trash as that above
quoted from our cotemporary, when
its standing "advertising rates" gave
the lie to its assertion, and by which
any one, able to multiply two by two,
can see the truth of our argument.
Tho Register's assertion that litigants
now have to pay 824 for notices that
beforo the enactment of that bill cost
in the same paper 87 50 is so barren
of truth as to scarcely need a refuta
tion. We have only published one
legal notice since the law was enacted
which cost 821, whereas before we
operated under the litigant law there
was hardly ever a notice published
which did not exceed that amount.
This, the Register, as well as every
lawyer in the county, knows. The
litigant law cut down our rates of
charges for that sort of advertising at
least one-fourth, besides requiring us
to execute bonds in 81,000 for the
faithful performance of the work and
exacting of us the voluntary contribu
tion of four copies of the paper every
week to the several courts of record
in the State. There is not a paper in
Oregon to-day, and we stand ready to
prove the proposition by plain fig
ures, whose advertising rates, if it
have anu, are not above those allowed
by the Litigant bill. The leading
organ of the Radical party in this
State (Oregonian) is to-day doing the
city printing of Portland at a price ;
one-third higher than that bid by the
Herald, a paper with equally as wide
a circulation. This is because a Rad
ical council would not give the work
to a Democratio paper, after it had
advertised for and received bids from
both, but gave it to the Oregonian, at
a price one-third greater than that bid
by the Herald. Out upou such de
ception and barefaced falsity. Sour
grapes" is what is the matter with our
Radical neighbor. That law is an
actual protection, and as such should
receive the warm support and endorse
ment of the voters of the State.

speech, at the Court House, Judge

stock holders in that enterprise. He

A JUDA3 HI THE FIELD.
The Register of last week contains
n letter from Mr. Sam. Mansfield, of
Harrisburg, which merits some at
tention at our hands. Wo dislike
much to have a controversy with a
Democrat upon questions of party
policy or expediency, but as Mr. M.
rushes entirely out of. the party and
into the panting bosom of the Radi
cal enemy to express big views and
give vent to his harrassed "phee
links,'' be certainly cannot expect
Democrats to deal with him very ten
derly. Instead of making a bombastio as
sertion that he can prove J udge Tan
dy to be both a "gambler and drunk
ard," why doesn't be sail in nd
prove it? The limple fact is that it
is much easier to tcake empty asser
tions than to produce the proofs, and
Mr. Mansfield has rushed into print
at this late day with tho desire to
gratify his personal spleen at the ex
pense of truth and fairnetts.
It seems in very bad tasto for
Mansfield to opposo Tandy, whom ho
warmly supported in the County
Convention, and whose qualifications
and merits he extolled to other dele
gates in order to secure their support
for him.' He came to the Conven
tion at an instructed delegato for
Tundy, labored diligently and un
ceasingly for bis nomination, repre
senting bim to other delegates as
embodying all tho elements of an
able, upright, houorublo and incor
ruptible Judge; and Mansfield knew
bim as well then an ho does now !
Then why this sudden revolution in
Mansfield's sentiments" with regard to
J udgo Tundy ? Can Democrat place
confidence in a man who would urge
the claims of a candidate upon them,
secure his nomination, aud then turn
about and proclaim bis owu shame
by publishing that be bad perpetra
ted a fraud upou them? Hi ftit-u
ought to burn with shame at tho ex
hibition which bis letter in the llegU
ter has uiado of his perfidy iu this
Again: The ridiculous phase of
Mansfield's conduct is illustrated in
the fact that ho i. a saloon Let'jxr
himself making his living by selling
that which bo mj bitterly condemns
Tandy in using J Doesn't any one of
sense kuow that it is not iu the na
ture of man to condemn thoso who
furnish bim with a livelihood by their
patronage? Then if Tandy were a
constant whisky-guzzler would not
tho ealoou keeper, Mansfield, rather
champion than condemn bim ?
Tandy cannot be a very good cus
tomer of tho whisky-vendor, Mans
field, or Lo would doubtless receive a
warmer support at bis hands.
It is also hardly probable that
Mansfield hai any sympathy with the
Radical candidate for Judge, who is
a pronounced foe to all whisky-sell
ers and a violent fanatic upon the
subject of temperance.
Then we are led to tho inevitable
conclusion that the prevailing opin
ion of tho Democrats of Harrisburg
is correct, and that Mansfield's cupid
ity has got the better of hU party
loyalty, und that be has fallen a vie
tim to tho machinations and manipu
latious of thoso who bavo sought to
corrupt the people by the use of the
basest of means known to baso poli
ticians. We do not charge this upon
Mr. Mansfield, but we do assert that
it is the only apparent motive that
could induce bim, under the peculiar
circumstances, to pursue his present
reprehensible course toward the
One at a Time. The head-light
of Oregon Radicalism, and the lead
ing defender of that platform, came
into Mart. Taylor's show, on Wcdncs
day night, in a drunken condition.
Becoming somewhat copious in his
greetings to friends, to the annoyance
of the negro delineator of the Fam
ily, who was just executing a banjo
solo, the mock Ethiopian mildly " sug
gested : 41 One Republican at a time "
Amid tho roar ot applause (for the
minstrel) which followed, the leading
Radical attempted to reply, but was
prevented by the publisher oi the
Register and tho Radical candidate
for Prosecuting Attorney of this Dis
trict, who gently drew the celebrated
orator into a seat, in order to prevent
a disgraceful scene.
Monopoly. During our residence
in this State we have heard much
complaint concerning the O. S. N
Co.'s monopoly of, the Columbia
river. Now compare notes with Ben
Holladay's railroad : Freight on
wheat and flour from Wallula to
Portland distance, 240 miles with
two portages (equal to four hand
lings),' is $6 $ ton, or 30 cents 1? 100
lbs. The O. & C. R. R. Co. 'a freight
tariff on wheat and flour from Eu
gene City to Portland distance, 123
miles without rehandling between
points, is $7 $ ton, or 35 cents 100
lbs. The railroad charges are nioie
than double those of the O. & C. R
R. for the same distance.
False. The Dallas Republican says
it learns by private letter that the
Democratic candidate for Prosecut
ing Attorney of this District had
been in this city subsidizing the va
rious saloons, t Now we don't believe
the Republican learned any , such a
thing. But if it did, all we have to
say is that it has been most egre
giously imposed upon. The intended
accusation is made out of whole
cloth, containing not one word of
truth. Democrats will . be prepared
to explode these Republican lies
sprung on tne eve oi eiecuon .
THE O0U3TT CANVASS. ;
From several gentlemen who re
turned from Brownsville Wednesday
evening, and had listened to tho can
vassers at Halsey, Harrisburg and
Brownsville, we learn that the can
vasu is progressing finely. A. C.
Jones, at the solicitation of friends,
in consequence of tho inability of
Ion. N. II. Cranor to make the can
vass on account of ill health, and
Ion. T. J. Stites, aro conducting the
canvass on the part of the Democ
racy, while the opposition is repre
sented by Messrs. George and Ellis.
No vituperative vilifications or per
sonalities are indulged in, but the do'
bates are characterized by gentle
manly courtesy and dignified argu
ment. Thus far every argument ad
vanced by the Radical speakers has
been successfully combatted and an
nihilated by the champions of De
mocracy, and the utmost harmony
and satisfaction exists in our ranks.
The enthusiasm with which our
speakers are everywhere greeted tells
more loudly than words that the
great mass of our peoplo are resolved
that Old Linn shall roll up for the
noble cause an increased majority.
Mr. Jones is devoting himself assidu
ously to the work, and, though not a
candidate nor an aspirant, is mak
ing a strong fight for the ticket, and
doing excellent service. He argues
ogically, upon every occasion under
mining tho studied rhetoric of Mr.
George and tearing away the founda
tion of every argument be advances.
Tho people of Linn may well be
roud of this canvass, and of the
ticket in the field. Its success is be
yond tho possibility of a doubt. One
thing, however, perhaps undeserving
of notico at our bunds, we wish to call
attention to iu a brief word. There
aro a few very few irresponsible
characters sneaking about the coan
ty, stealthily following in the wake
of the canvassers, endeavoring with
their villainous tongues and venom
ous falsehoods to beslime and belittle
the name of one man on our ticket
whose sense of right and moral and
political character are as far aliove
thm "as heaven is above bell." To
thoso wo will not stoop to speak, but
we wish V say to the people at large
that the responsible, vprigld, reliable,
honorable men of the county, every
where, are rising up and denying the
fulttities which have lx-en heaped up
on Judgo Tandy. These sneakers
deserve, therefore, to be spurned by
every honest, right-minded voter.
Pronounce thir coard!y assertions!
fal.se. and lUten to the verdict of the
more ri-njwtnfAe portion of tho com
munity iu regard to this matter.
Let Democrat stand by the nomi
nees of a fair convention,' and allow
no base falsehoods, sprung on the

JUDGE BOISE OH SWA1I? LAKD3.
This legal star, ia his speech here
lajt Friday, attempted to justify him
self for being tho claimant of 10,003
acres of the swamp lands of Oregon.
Hu mado several attempts, a good
deal lite tho Yankee witness, who re
peatedly began his story with: ''Waal,
cap'n Rice be gin a'huskin;" and at
last, after many allusions to his "cous
in Sally Dillard," arrived at the point.
It was this: He found no iault with
tho swamp bill. It was a good thing
for Radicals and Democrats; yet his
being occupied with the duties of his
judgeship, he was prevented from
filing upon any of these lands until the
best of them had been applied for by
other parties, and when he did get
time to search the records, ho was
compelled to fasten on to 10,003 acres
in the Summer Lake country. Mr.
Cann, the clerk, gave him every as
sistance, but after a careful search he
concluded that Summer Lako was the
best left. Afterwards ho had discov
ered that Summer Lake could not be
drained, and he wauted to exchange
his whole "grab" for eigldy acres of
John F. Miller's "fat take" in the
Klamath Lake country. John F
didn t see it, and now the sapient
Judge publicly offered to assign his
filings to any person then present, for
the low sum of 10. The speaker
paused a moment, then fell to $5
Receiving no bids, he passed on to
the Locks bill. Poor man ! What a
pity his time was so occupied with
judicial duties that he couldn't get a
more valuable tract to file ou.
Demagogcism. Judge Boise, in
his speech here last Friday night, said
the "Constitution of the United States
declared that all men were born free
and eqaal" Not satisfied with this
ridiculous declaration, ;he repeated
that the " Declaration of Independ
ence, as all present knew, said all men
were born free and equal" Now
thero was not a man or woman in the
Court House who had ever read
either of these instruments, but knew
no such words could be found in them
Judge Boise has been on the bench
in this State for some twelve years,
and makes pretentions ; to honesty
and intellisrence: and we were aston
ished to hear him make, before an in
telligent audience, 6uch bare-faced,
false assertions and mis-quotations as
these, i This is a species ot base dom
agoguism to which we had thought
Uoise could not stop.
L. S. "Westgale was arrested at
Oregon city for bigamy, recently, and
allowed & five minutes'intervte w with
his youthful bride No 2. At the ex

back door, and was no est inventus.
EEPLY TO MANSFIELD'S LETTEE,
' llAnmUKO, liny 25, 1872.
IZditor Democrat :
We herewith make it our pleasant,
but not at all agreeable duty, to make
the following statement pleaaant It 1,
In defending tho charucter of Mr. K.
N. Tandy, Democratic Candidate for
County J.utlgo of Linn county, and dis
agreeable, that wu aro compelled to
contrudict certain assertions of Ham.
Mansfield as published in tho Register
of the 2 ith Inst:
In the first place, Mansfield says that
we "begd Mr. S. C. Siiodtrrus to
publicly retract" what he said in the
Register of tho 10th Inst. This ve
drnj, and denounce it a bane falsehood.
Wu simply told Mr. Hnodgraa that his
remarks were so construed by some
parties as to confirm the report which
Is In circulation that Tandy is a com
mon drunkard and gambler. Mr. 8.
expressed his astonishment, saying
that he did not know that this report
was in circulation, nor does he wish
that Ids communication should be thus
misconstrued, and he freely and vol
untarily offered to correct this "mis
take, or otherwise malicious report,"
which bo dill, like a gentk-uian,
through tiie columns of tfie Dkmockat
of the 24th inst. Mansfield says, "why
do not lloult and May rise to explain?
Will they dare suy that Judge Tandy
is not a drunkard and gambler?" We
will say we dare say it, u thousand
times if necessary; we will further say
that we, us well as many other Demo
crats, have contradicted these false re
ports wht;i-ver they reached our ears;
but us Mr. Tandy had never been at
tacked througli th'j press, wo did not
deem it necessary to take this stop;
but now, utsm the invltatiou of Mans
field, we will publicly denounce them
us bane and malicious falsehoods. We
have been acquainted with Mr. Tandy
for a iiuinU r of years. For the last
two years wo have seen him almost
daily, and we have never observed him
even under the influence of liquor.
Mansfield asserts he can prove him to
bu a common drunkard and gambler.
To tlii i wu will say, while ho (Mans
field) may be able to prove it by a few
(Tandy's enemies), that gentleman can
prove by nutny re,Kj,cclabtecitizens, that
be is an honorable man, and not at all
guilty of what he is accused.
Jaiisileld further states that he is a
Democrat, but if the Jcmocrucy put
such men on the ticket, he, for one,
begs to be excused from voting the
straight ticket. !x.-t us see what kind
of a Democrat he is: He attended the
Democratic irimary meeting, was
elected (it is true by only oue majority,
and that one we are led to believe was
a Ui publieuu!) as a delegate to the
County Convention; be took an active
part in that Convention, supporteu
iandy all the way througli, came
home and hoanted that Tandy might
thank him for getting the nomination,
as he worked for him doy and night;
and now, at this late hour, he accuses
Tandy of being a common drunkard
and gambler. If these reports are
true, ho certainly was aware of them
before the Convention, and it by these
actions he still claims to be a Demo
crat, we for two, beg leave to doubt his
Democracy at least.
Ham. Janstkdd, your Communica
tion to the Register is very nice. ler
hajs you had miiic Republican to as
sist you, but be that as it may, it won't
win. You must assign other reasons iu
justitlcat.on of your action than those
you have been giving. It may be you
have been tamjrred with, by a turtle
of the general corruption fund, which
U so frequently used iu this .State; but
iu our estimation you cannot oiler any
reason to justify you In our eyes, as a
And now fellow Democrat, in con
clusion we will that Mr. Tandy is
luliy worthy or your support at the
ensuing election, and are fully assur
ed that you will never regret having
cast your vote in Ins favor.
Yours In tho good cause,
. K. HOULT.
