Olympia, Saturday MORNING. June 15, 1872.
The Courier of Tuesday replies at con
siderable length to our article of last week,
in which we reviewed its fallacious argu
ments sustaining the postponement of'the
election to November.
It will be remembered that our conteni
porary based its justification of the post
ponement mainly upon the plea that it
would secure " uniformity, and prevent the
importation of voters from one State or
Territory to another." We admitted that
this would have been a proper motive for
effecting the change, if the claim that it
would secure " uniformity" was founded
oil fact, but showed that it was not so
based, for under the late general law of
Congress the elections in Oregon and the
other States is not changed to November
until 1870. Uutil that date, the general
electiou in Oregou takes place iu June,
and our own, by Garfielde's manipulation
in November. Does this secure the uni
formity, which the Courier urges as the
chief justification of the change?
As anticipated by us, our contemporary
liaßgs its only hope of escape from the
awkward dilemma into which it has fallen
mpon the fact that a Presidential election
occurs in Oregon in November, but it does
sot attempt to explain how " uniformity"
is secured by changing our timo of voting
front June, when a general election does
take place in Oregon, to November when
only a vote for Presidential electors is held.
Hut were it conceded that November is as
suitable as June this year, how would it
be two years hence, when Oregon holds no
election at all in November? To sum up
briefly: The Courier claims that the
change was to secure uniformity and pre
vent fraud, while the facts warrant the be
lief that the result will be to produce irreg
ularity and to open the door to illegal vot
ing. And that this is the real object of
Garfielde and his clique is apparent from
their acts in the last canvass, when a con
ditional charter of the steamer Varuna was
effected to import voters from Victoria and
Sac Juan, and Oregonians were actually
voted in some of the river couuties by
In defense of its second position, that
November is a more suitable and conven
ient season for the election, it says : " We
* arc content to leave the question with the
old settlers, and the unanimous verdict
will be in favor of November." This is
another assumption not justified by cir
cumstances. How can it claim to speak
for the people, who have not been consult
ed in relation to the matter, and have had
ao opportunity to express their preference
is relation to it ? It aseerts:
" If the argument tbai it has been In June
heretofore is good against the change, it is
equally good ogainst any change whatever for
the better because it hasn't been so before."
We do not hold to the position that be
cause a state of circumstances are once
right they are always right, and that a
change would not be proper ; but we do
maintain that the people themselves are
the best judges of what they want, and
not Congress. The fact that they have
made no change in the time of voting,
when it could be so easily done through
their legislature is conclusive proof that
they desired no change. Here again we
rest our case.
The third " argument" of the Courier is
maintained as follows:
" As to the fitness ol tbe delegate being at
liorae to see those whom he represent*, and
learn their wants, when not engaged in duties
at Washington, that ii a matter that requires
no argument, tbe bare statement chows its
propriety at once to every honest voter"
Here the Courier again throws dust in
to the eyes of ita readers. There arc just
so many days in a week, week* in a month,
and months in * year, whether the eleotioo
comes in June or November, and the Del
egate has just as much time to see those

as the •' Lost Trunk'' demonstrates, Lul

lias failed to secure any of the benefits his
constituents asked and expected of him.
Space will not allow us to review the re
maiudcr of the Courier '* article. It is the
feeblest attempt to twist out of the conse
quences of misrepresentation, to sustain a
poor cause by poorer arguments, that we
have ever witnessed. It literally

the Courier , if it prizes a reputation for
veracity, that it will gracefully throw up
the sponge—say it was mistaken in the
statement of facts—was joking—the editor
was away and " blame" the Devil —any-
thing—to relieve it from the consequences
of its folly. Come now, own up, and we'll
say no more about it.
In reply to our assertion that the numina
tion of Judge McFaddeo probably had a
great deal to do with the final passage of
the bill postponing the election the Cour
ier says:
"Judge McFadden did accept tlie nomina
tion of the Democrats in Olympia very reluc
tantly, nnd conditionally; lint when? Why,
on the eiyhth diy of Mil//, thr very day that the
Srnatc in Wailiitxjton finally /msscd thr bill.
Our cotemporary, from his prodigal use
of italic, evidently thinks his last sentence
a clincher, but it is not. We know more
about the matter than the official clique
imagine. On the evening of the 7th,
Judge McFadden decided to accept the
nomination, on the morning of the Bth,
Ferry Beach & Co., employed the tele
graph for hours in tho transmission of
messages to prominent Senators asking the
passage of the bill, as the only possible
means of salvatiou for Garfielde. Will the
Courier deny this ?
♦ ♦ -
proceedings of the Philadelphia Conven
tion were singularly deficient in enthusiasm.
Beyond the mere statement of main facts
iucident thereto nothing has been tele
graphed to this coast. The Platform even
is compressed into the announcement that
it embraces the " well-defined principles of
the party." There has been no such
demonstrations of popular feeling as usu
ally accompany the nomination of a candi
date for the Chief Magistracy. Poor Col
fax is laid on the shelf, after all the bluster
in his favor, simply because the office
holders dared not ignore the one-term
principle, except to retain their master.
With him and them it is live or die, sink

" There is an item of news comes to us from
several counties, where Republicans are elec
ted to the Legislature, to the effect that the
members so elected are pledged, in the strong
est teims, against Ilolladay's schemes of
plunder, and against Williams, Mitchell, or
anybody else, he may want for United States

pect is not so dark as has been supposed. It
may be found that all the Republican members

| It is amusing to witness the tribulation '
' .>f the Courier wliea it contemplate* t he
possibility of a Democratic endorsement of
the Cincinnati Dominations. Jfor is it
alone in its anguish. The Administration
| papers all over the country share in gloomy
' misgivings as to the result of such a meas
| ure. They have ceased cursing Democrats,
have laid aside the stereotyped epithets
always at their tongue's end, and resort to
piteous appeals. The vtry uicn who a
few months ago were sneeringly taunted
with being Kuklux sympathizers and
members of a dead party arc now dignified
into the honest masses, and glowing eulo
gies are written upon their proverbial
consistency! They are urged by these
new-found frieuds to adhere to their clier
ished belief, the creed of a life-time. Xow
that is just what the Democracy propose
to do. The preamblo and resolutions of
the Cincinnati Platform, embrace in a re
markable degree the principles for which
the Democracy have contended since the
days of Jefferson, and the exceptions are
upon questions of recent origin. The
spirit of those principles is preserved and
re-asserted, and the candidates of the con
vention manifest no less decided hostility
to the usurpations, the extravagances and
the corruptions of the Administration than
is held by life long Democrats themselves.
The nominees are conceded to be both
honest and capable, the only qualifications
demanded by a party, controlled sitnply by
an adherence to " principles, and not
It is not at all surprising, that a largo
clement of the party is in favor of ratify,
ing the nominations of the "Liberal Re
publican" Convention. When such pure
minded and patriotic statesmen as Gov.
Seymour signify a willingness to forget the
personal and political wrongs suffered at
hands of the N. Y. Tribune and its editor,
and declares that the election of Greeley
"will be a preservative step toward local
neighborhood government, and will stop
the course of overbearing federalism" the
party cannot go far astray in accepting a
course that will lead to inevitable success.
Hon. Renjamin Wood, in a recent letter
declares that, " the Grant men have already
used large amounts of money to prevent
the Democracy from endorsing Greeley.
If they are successful Graut will rule at
tongas he live*, even if it be for twenty
years." The well known political standing
of Mr. Wood gives a peculiar significance
to these words. There is danger that his
prophesy may come true, if the party per
sists iu grasping fur a shadow instead of
the substance) if it follows the disinter
ested advice of the Administration journals
which insist that it is the duty of the De
mocracy to make nominations.

1. An ) it came to pass in the fecond
month of the truce, after the emmissarics
had gone forth from the camp of Selucius,
the babbler, that Marshall, the headstrong,
commanded hia hosts to assemble on the
plain, to be maneuvered in the art of war.
'2. And the heralds went forth sounding
their trumpets, crying in a loud voice
throughout the encampment, and summon
ing the leaders of tens and of hundreds,
and of thousands, with their chariots, aud
engines, arid spears, aud swords, aud bows,
and arrows, and slings, to come forth upon
the plain.
3. When Marshall, the headstrong, was
mounted upon his charger, named Thotnp
sonscolt, and had coute into the plain, he
cast about him that he might look upon
the hosts that were to be maneuvered iu
the art of war.
4. And he saw that of the mighty men
of valor enlisted under his banner only
twelve were at their posts. And many of
those that were private soldiers, were wan
dering about as if they knew not where
they belonged or whither they should go.
5. And he called oue of these who was a
soldier under Christopher, the convivial,
and said unto him where is thy master,
that he comes not forth to the summons of
the herald ?
(5. And the soldier answered and said
unto hint my master tyeth in his tent sick
of a headache.
7. And to another, who was a soldier
under Klwood, the eosmographer, he said,
Where is thy master ?
8. And the soldier answered and said
unto him, my master has gone forth to of
fer up burnt offerings and to drill the lost
tribes of Ishmael, that he may raise up
soldiers unto Ham.
9. And one that was a soldier under
Benjamiu, the stiff, being questioned like
wise, answered and said : My master lyotli
in bed with a stricture.
10. And another who followed Edwin,
the amalgamator, being questioned said my
master hath an issue.
11. Ami when he saw that his generals
came not forth to his summons, he re
turned iuto his tent aud fasted until even-
12. And when it was nightfall he gath
ered up his mantle about him and went
forth into the tents of his chief men that
he might counsel with them why they
came not to answer the summons of the
13. And wheu he had spoken unto
them scperately, and questioned them why
they had done this tlmig, they evaded him
with artful answers and stammering in
their speech, after the manner of men who
speak not from the heart.
14. One said unto him. is it mrct that
we should take up arms against those that
are set in authority over us by Ulysses,
who is tho ruler of the people ? Is it not
written that ye shall render unto C»*ar
the tilings that are Caesar's, and therefore
shall we not render tribute unto Klisha (lie
15. Another saitli why dost thou stir up
strife among the tribes of llaui '< Is it
uot written that a house that is divided
against itself shall surely fall ? If we
turn against one another shall we not be
delivered into tho hands of the tribes of
10. And another said is it well that we
should trouble ourselves with these things
which concern us not ? Let the sword be
turned into a pruning hook, and tho ox
be teturned to the plow that the earth
may give forth its richness to its chosen
17. And when Marshall the headstrong
had heard the manner of their speech, he
knew that the emmissarics of Petroleum,
the drummer, had been among them, and
he went into his tent and olothed himself
in sack cloth and put ashes on his head,
and considered what he should do least his
captains should deliver him into the hands
of the enemy.
18. And when he had considered he
sent a message privately with his signet
to each of his chief men, who were cap
tains over thousands, bidding them to
his tent to counsel with him what should
be done.
10. And when they were all gathered
together, he went up into the rostrum and
spake unto them, saying, Hear, I pray ye,
this drenm which I have dreamed :
20. Behold, I walked in a garden, and
while I looked there grow up before me a
tree, whose leaves sent forth poison and
death over the land. And there came up
from the earth a vine which entwiued
itself round about the tree, and embraced
it until its branches drooped and the hue
of death was upon its foliage.
21. And behold, while I looked the
vine put forth blossoms and bare gourds,
and on one of the gourds there came a
scarlet spot like unto blood.
22. And the gourd fell from the vine
and was broken upon the ground, and I
saw that it was filled with rottenness.
23. And when I put forth my hand to
take another of the gourds, the vine with
ered at the roots, the gourds were dis.
solved from my sight, and I awoke full of
24. And I told this unto the magicians,
but there was none that could declare it
unto ine. And I knew it not until I had
seen it among you when you came hither.
25. And when tho captains of Marshall
the headstrong had heard his discourse,
they were sorely troubled, and looked
with amazement from one to the other, but
oo man spake.
20. Seeing them troubled he said unto
them, This is the interpretation of the
dream I dreamed : The poisonous tree was
the house of Selucius the babbler; tho
branches were his followers, and you are
the vine and the gourds.
27. The gourd with the red spot was
the sign and type of that man among you,
who having sold his birthright for a muss
of pottage, hath the red murk upon tho
back of his coat, upon which I see you all
look, as upon the curse of Cain.
28. When tliey had heard these words,
of the one hundred and thirty and seven
chief men that were in council, one hun
dred and twenty and five rose up and took
off their coats that they might lqok upon
the backs thereof.
And *ht-n they h»d #eeo the Lacks
••f their giruicnta that ilicy Were elem,

ye arc like unto whited sepulchres, which
indeed appear beautiful outward, but are
within full of dead men's bones, and of all
31. that one who was near him
had let fall from his garment a parchment,
Marshall the headstrong took it up and
read it. That it was a promise from Pe
troleum the drummer that tSelucius the
babbler should raise up him that had let
it fall to bo chief tyrant iu Alki over the
lost tribes of Ishiuuel.
32. And when he had read it he held
up the parchment in his hand and said let
him to whom Petroleum has promised
that his master shall make him chief ty
rant over the lost tribes of Ishmael, raise
up and reeeivo his parchment which he
has lost from his garment.
33. And of the captains that were as
sembled three and twenty rose up and put
forth their hands to receive it.
34. And when Marshall the headstrong
had said unto them, how shall I know
which one of you is the true owner of the
parchment and which are impostors, they
were clamorous, and spake high words and
jostled each other.
35. And seeing the pit into which tlicso
three and twenty had fallen, the others be
gan to question those that were near then*
what they were to receive from £elucius,
the babbler.
30. And among them there were five
and twenty who claimed to be Judges.
Two and twenty who were to be governors of'
Alki. Thirty were to be gatherers of tax
es, and fifteen were to be deliverers of
parchments in Chitwoot.
37. And tliero was much contention,,
back-biting and crimination among those
claimed to be governors, judges, tax-gath
erers, and deliverers of parchment, and
they would have fell to with their staves
and put heads upon each other, had not
Marshall the headstrong silenced them.
518. And when they were silenced, Wil
liam, the sanguine, being one of the twelve
who had not known the cmmissarics ol'Se
lucius, the babbler, spoke unto them say
ing, Much vanity and love of high .'mind
ing titles bath wrought this fully in Chit
woot. Veiily, I hay unto you, if there
were more soldiers and fewer generals, am!
captains, and governors, among you, it
would be worse for those who are en
trenched against us.
89. Hearing these words, that they
were full of wisdom, and seeing how they
had been delivered, the captains that were
in council struck hands, and swear that
they would put away th«-ir folly, that Selti
cius, the babbler, and they that were with
