Corruption, Bribery and Fraud.
We publish below the statement of &
gentleman at Xceah Bay, exposing a small
portion of the rascality perpetrated in the
late election by the Garfielde ring. It is
made by a reliable witness of the transac
tion, who will substantiate the facts there
in set forth by oath, if they arc denied by
any party interested. Who would have
believed that the most abject tools of Gar
fielde would have had the audacity to per
petrate so glaringan outrage ? Although,
from the well known character of the men
who led the campaign, we expected that all
sorts of rascality would be practiced, we
were not prepared for so humiliating an
exhibition as this. When we were as
sured by the officer having charge of the
Indian service in the Territory, that the
Indians should not be used as a political
element at the polls, we placed the most
implicit confidence iu that declaration.
We are not now convinced that this out
rage was perpetrated with his sanction or
knowledge, but we do know that the In
dian department has manifested a most
wonderful and extraordinary zeal through
out the canvass, and while it has patted
Judge Mix on the back and whispered
"aidand comfort" in his car, orders have
gone forth as bombastic as the ukase
against the jumpers at Ilog'em, to crucify
him and elect Garfielde to Congress.
But we have no desire to misrepresent
any one, or to misstate circumstances in
any instance, and we sincerely hope that
the publication of the statement will
determine precisely who is at fault, and
fix the odium upon only the guilty parties.
We cheerfully tender the use of our col
umns for the publication of a.iy statement
that responsible parties may choose to
make. We would regret very much to be
lieve that such an outrage as was perpe
trated at Neeah Bay, and for aught we
knew at other points in the Territory, had
the sanction of the Superintendent, and
still we can hardly concei.vc how such
an outrage could be perpetrated and he
be in total ignorance of the plotting which
preceded it. The Agent in charge has im
mediate control of the Indians, and a word
from him or the Superintendent would
have prevented the fraud. That a pro
position to vote Indians was discussed by
Republicans, is well known; and the
question is, did the officers of the Indian
service sanction, disapprove, or quietly ac
quiesce in the proceeding ?
NEE An BAT, June 6, 1870.
ED. STANDARD : The day of election
ia oyer and I never was so disgusted as I
was at the action of the Garfielde King
here to-day. It was without exception
the most humiliating spectacle that an
honest man erer beheld. The first thing
that was done was the election of the
board of Judges and Inspector of election
la the following manner: Mr. Maggs,
one of the Judges appointed by the County
Commiasioners, went into a room with five
other men, and with closed windows and
doora, elected a board and their clerks,
without the knowledge of any parties on
the outside, leaving this man Maggs off,
he being the only one of the board pres
ent appointed by the County Court,
which aetion was entirely new to me.
After everything was arranged on the in
aide, the window was raised and the polls
declared open, no one bciug on the
authorized to admiuistcr oaths except as
they empowered each other. Then came'
the voting. Maggs took an Indian by the
arm and le.id biic up to the polls, when
the Inspector raised himself up in a very
dignified vaoner, and administered an
oath to this man Mag<*. to act as inter
preter, which read aa follows :
" You do solemnly swear that you will
faithfully anl impartially, act as interpre
ter, in putting of questions and administer- 1
in* oaths put by Inspector of election this
«Jay. (Signed) <T. S. MAGUS.
Subserit>ed and sworn to before me,
this Gth Jay of Juno. IS7O.
(Signed) Theodore ALYED,
Inspector of Election Neeah Bay.
After the oath had l>ecu administered
to the interpreter, he proceeded as follows
to interpret the oith to Indian Saxey.
"Mikawa-wa uiika delate Hoston," &c.
ice., and the Indian said that he was n
Bo«ton, when this man Magg* took the
ballot from his (the Indian's) hapd and
gave it to the inspector and the inspector
put it iu the ballot-box. I was standing
within ouc foot of the parties, and saw the
whole transaction. Then this man
lead an other Indian up to the polls and
went through the form and took the ballot
from the Indian and jrave it to the inspec
tor, when one of the gentlemen on the out
side exclaimed : " For (Jod's sake, Maggs
how many times are you going to vote."
Just then there was considerable talk
made about the style of votirig, and the
Judges took Indian Saxey on the inside
and made him act as interpreter the bal
ance of the day. At this point, I walked
out to where the Indians were and told
them I wanted them to go with me,
and I took away 85 of them, who I
am quite sure, did not go back to
vote. The compensation offered to the
Indians and which they received, was a
sack of flour for them to vote for (Jar
fieldc. The flour was sent here to Maggs
to be distributed in this manner. This
can be proven by the Indians themselves.
Xow if there is no law to take hold of a
man iu such a case, it is something strange
to me. The Revenue Cutter came in
about noon, and there were ten men and
three officers went ashore and voted. I
never asked nor attempted to get an Indi
an to vote. There were 112 votes polled ;
106 for Garfielde and C for Mix. All
these facts can be proven and will be
sworn to if necessary.
gram received liere a few days ago states
that T. M. Somfer, has been appointed
Receiver of Public Moneys at this place.
So it appears our old friend, Judge Cusli
man must stand aside to make room for
auothcr carpet-bagger. If there is a man
in the Territory who has filled a Federal
office with better satisfaction to the peo
ple, irrespective of party, than Judge Cush
man, we do not know who he is. Besides
being a pioneer, a man whose industry and
enterprise has contributed in no small de
gree to advance our material interests, he
combines iu a remarkable degree the qual
ifications fitting him for the position he
has held BO satisfactorily the past eight
years. Although a strict partisan, his
official conduct has been such as to secure
the unlimited confidence of the people in
his ability and integrity as a public officer.
It is, therefore, with regret we chronicle
his removal and the substitution of a carpet
bagger in his place. Wo have had an
overdose of the infliction. If the claims
of our old citizens arc of no weight in af
fecting the distention of the loaves and
fiiihes, if with all of Garfioldo's boasted in
fluence with the Administration this state
of things cannot be averted, and we must
continue to be afflicted with the plagues of
Egypt, let the fact bo at once made known
to the people that they may know the
grapes are sour and cease their hopeless
longing. If the Delegate had not been
(elected from the Radical party, if the
power claimed for him with the Adminis
tration was not so omnipotent, we should
not have so much cause for complaint.
But the facta are far different, and we
leave it for the supporters of Mr. Garfielde
to reconcile this last removal with justice
and propriety as beat they can.
distinguished author is no more. As a
novelist he had reached the highest pinna
cle of fame, and his works are perhaps
more generally read and highly prized
than those of any other author. Mr.
Dickinswas born at Portsmouth, England,
Feb. 7th, 1812. lie was intended by his
father for the law, and to that end placed
in an attorney's office in London. De
coming discontented, he left law for letters,
and in the capacity of reporter attached
himself to a London newspaper. In this
field his intellectual Ability soon manifest
ed itself. lie wrote a series of sketches
on London life which soon gained public
approval. The "Pickwick Papers," a
comic work which appeared in monthly
parts, obtained for him an enviablo popu
larity. Since that time Mr. Dickens has
written many novels illustrative of society
in its different phases, prominent among
which were " Oliver' Twist," " Dombey
and Son," and " Nicholas Nickleby." In
every community may be found the coun
terparts of some of his characters. It is not
unusual to'find a Ileep, a Carker, a Peck
sniff, or a Chuzzlewit, nor are the charac
ters illustrating the brighter side of human
nature without familiar illustrations along
the journey-of life. The Captain Cuttles
are not the less appreciated because they
represent a far less numerous class. The
hold Mr. Dickens had upon the affections
of the people was sclrcely less in this coun
try than in his own native land,as the cor
dial greeting of which he was the recipient
a few months ago proved. Up to the day
of his death he was apparently enjoying
good health, and had just written several
pages on i: Edwin Drood," a novel, which
is thus left uncompleted.

pers are filled with accounts of the men
dacity of the Radical party wherever it
held the reins of power, in the late elec
tion. Such outrages should cause all
honest men to blush for the party that
perpetrates them : The following is from
the Oregon City Enterprise:
\\ c learn from parties up from Port
land that election day in tliat city was a
most disgrpceful affair. The pulls were
taken charge of by Hen. Ilolladay's bul
lies, and legal voters were intimidated or
pulled away from the polls. We learn
that in one precinct there were at least
two hundred voters prevented from exercis
ing the right of suffrage through fear of
being knocked down. In Kust Portland
the same ruffianism was displayed, and the
whole affair was a farce ami outrage on
the legal voters. Money is said to have
been freely used, and voters and strikers
openly bought. We believe there is a
law against such offenses, and hope that
the law abiding citizens of that city will
make an example of some of the scoun
drels who have been guilty of these out
rages, and scud them to the penitentiary,
where they belong.
tyw e learn from the lntclUgrneer that
the new steamer Alula, formerly known as
the Taeomn, intended for the mail service
on the Sound, is now nearly completed,
and will make a trial trip in about ten
days. Her length of keel is 115 feet;
width, 20 feet; depth of hold, 0 feet. She
has one boiler with six ten-inch fluos, and
forty-four four-inch tubes, with a heating
surface of twenty two hundred feet; dou
ble engines of two hundred horse power,
with 14} inch cylinders ; and ono mast
with a jib-sail. On the upper deck there
will be twelve state-rooms, one ladies eabin
16 by 14 ; a dining saloon 60 feet long,
and a promenade deck forward of the pilot
house, and one aft th« ladies' saloon. The
model and powerful eugines indicate con
siderable speed, whilst her general appear
ance is creditable to her builders.
I't?" A telegram to the Tribune states
that the steamer Active was wrecked on a
rook about twenty-two miles south of Cajic
Moiidocino, about the 6th instant. The
vessel is u total loss, but the passengers
and crew were all saved, with their bag
gage aud about forty tons of freight. The
Actire was destined for Victoria, aud had
on board several passeugcrs for this place,
among whom were Mrs. MeElroy, and
Misses Slocum and Kvans. The passen
gers and rescued freight were taken back
to Sau Francisco, and were to have taken
another start last Tuesday, by the steamer
Pciieun, for Victoria.
If tiariielde dou't do something"
for Pud, he deserves to bo eternally
damned, now, henceforth and forever. To
see how the " skillful concealer of Gar
fielde's defects" has stove himself up by
arduous labor in tho campaign, with
scarcely a hope for tho coveted ermine, fills
one with sadness. We intend that he
shall have it if persistent solicitation will
get it for him.

Most of the rich men of California caine
to the State in poverty. Jumcs Lick, who
owns the Lick House, commenced life as a
miller. Peter Donahue the chiefowner of
the Occidental Hotel, was a machinist.
The Keis Brothers, who built the Cosmo
politan Hotel, weio,miners. HUSH, whose
estate furnished 'the funds and land for
the Buss House, was a watchmaker. Mi
chail lleese was a surveyor. Alviuez
Hay ward was a miner, and for years ho
struggled in poverty. James P. Pierce
lived for years on credit in the hope that
the Smartville Blue Gravel Mine would
prove rich, nnd it more than justified his
hope. Andrew McCrecry was a porter.

ingdon all started with little, made their
fortunes ill California, and aro now with
the othere previously named, classed by
common rumor among the " millionaires"
of the State, though probably most of them
could not reach half a million. At any
rate, they arc reported to be wealthy, and
except in having been more successful
than their rivals, they are fair representa
tives of the men who have rjsen from pov
erty to riehes in the State. The class who
brought wealth with them to California is
extremely small.
The opportunities for speculation, and
for making fine fortunes without disregard
of the strictest rules of business prudence,
are still, and will long continue to he. nu
merous. Hardly a month passes without
a rise of ten per cent, in the value of real
estate somewhere in the State. The re
sources and attractions of the coast are too
great to permit a decline, or long arrest of
development. Wages and interest will
fall, the yielding of the mines will decrease,
business will become more steady, but land
will rise, the influence of railroads will
open districts now unoccupied, and a mul
titude of causes will contribute to keep
California for many years one of the best
places in the world for young men of un
usual intelligence and capacity. — S. F.
