ATKINS Constables SILAS WENTZ, T. F. SAFELY A Modern Clncinnatua. A correspondent of the Oregonian writing under date of the 22d from this city, has this to say of the speech of Robt. Bridges, delivered in the Bryan-Rogers club rooms, Wednesday night: Candidate Bridges delivered a charac teristic harangue here last night. It can be truthfully said, quoting a former Dem ocrat as authority, that the talk did more harm than good for the Popocratic cause, for when a man of Bridges' stamp at tempts to attack the personal or otficial character of the late L. R. Grimes or of W. T. Forrest, before an Olympia audi ence, he carries his dirty wares to a very poor market. The "characteristic harangue" was a masterly array of facts and figures, which opened the people's eyes wider to the brace-game of the State con spirators than any speech" of the cam paign. Bridges began by stating that he had nothing to say personallyof the State Auditor or the State Hand Com missioner, that he believed them both to be gentlemen, and his speech throughout was notable for the entire absence of abuse or exhibition of party feeling. It depended solely for its weight upon the figures taken from official reports, and if they constitute " dirt," the dirt came from the dirty digits of the men who made them. If the talk "did more harm than good," as the correspondent so brazenly declares, the assumption is by no means borne out by the most palpable evidences of the effects produced. When an army veteran, as one of its effects, tears off his McKinley badge and sub stitutes a Bryan button, which he now proudly wears; when men who had hitherto been Republicans, the next day said, " Why were not such speeches as that made earlier in the campaign? The people have been, and many of them are still deceived in the methods which have resulted in public and pri vate bankruptcy;" when the Bryan roll has l>een augmented by a score of recruits from that single speech; it is useless for the turn-coat (for revenue) correspondent of the Oregonian to as sert that "It did more harm than good." The effect will not down at the bidding, and the very fact that Robert Bridges' speeches call forth more exhibitions of spleen from the tax-eaters than any others, is an indi cation that lie strikes the " bull's-eye" oftener. Then note the attempt to belittle this man of the jieoplc by the expres sion, "A man of Bridges' stamp"! It may lie true that Mr. Bridges does not wear a silk hat nor patent leather shoes; it may be that he has not l>een schooled to lift his hat with that Ches fcerfieldian grace which the American " nobility" practice so assiduously to acquire; but honest men can detect in the ring of his voice the tone of sin cerity and sympathy which goes out from heart to heart in this hour of sore distress. They find in his hearty grasp of the hand a thrill of the man hood which impels the masses to make a struggle for that liberty which has been the boast of a free government, and that has been slowly, steadily slip ping from their grasp under the dom ination of the would-be upper crust of "sassietv." Robert Bridges is a working man, 'tis true; but ho is a modern Cincin natus. While the Roman of old was taken from the plow by his apprecia tive countrymen to save the Republic from the aggressiveness of the patri cian host, Robert Bridges was taken from his pick in the mining shaft, to perform a like patriotic service for his fellow-man. That lie is doing it well is told by the cries of anguish which follow his vigorous strokes for li< inesty, for economy, for pure government and a return to conditions that presage prosperity. AN INFAMOUS SCHEME. INDIRECT BRIBERY TO RE I SER TO SE CI RE THE VOTES OF LABOR. Contractor (ioss Proposes to (jive Over the Pay- Roil of Capitol Labor to Mr. Allen White, in Return for Sullivan Votes. It tii.tv well lie asked, " Wliilher are we drifting," when a deliberate prop osition is made to purchase the labor vote "f this city for the Republican party by farming out the public work or, the capitol to a select coterie, who shall use their influence for Sullivan's election as Governor. Those who know Allen White will not for a minute question the state ment he makes. It i- due the people that this bold attempt at bribery shall meet a prompt and merited rebuke. Here is Mr. White's statement: Oi.ymita, October L'ti, 1 Silti. I hereby certify that Mr. Goss, the contractor lor the construction of tin- State Capitol, made to me, on this 'J'itli inst., the proposition that if 1 would inllueiiee votes for I*. C. Sullivan fur Governor, and Mr. Ernst for State Auditor, that he would, in the event of Mr. Sullivan's election and the prosecution of work on the capitol, employ such men as I might designate as entitled to such preference for said support at the polls. AI.I.GN WIIITL. As briefly stated in our local columns Monday, F. If. Goss, the con tractor for the construction of the State Capitol, made it his business yesterday to visit some of our busiuess men to urge upon them support of the McGraw candidate for State Executive, as a means of promoting a work that has been treated with so much unfairness hv the McGraw administra tion. The method of otl'ering an indirect bribe to labor seems to be the chief reliance of the men who have no high ® regard for the public service than to regard oflicjal duty as a mere confidcnrce game, in which the smartest manip ulators win. The bent of Mr. Goss' argument is that by the election of Sullivan, the "confidence" necessary to iloat warrants will bo assured, and that work on the State-house will be resumed soon as a loan with the lands as collateral security has been secured. Failing in this, Mr. Goss has a purely personal string to his bow, and that is to " work" through a relief bill for alleged dam ages, for a largo sum, claimed to have been lost from the State's inability to iloat the warrants based on the land grant. But can the scheme, if it passes a bait for suckers, be of any possible benefit to the laborer ? If the McGraw administration, before the bottom had fallen out of the State credit under the colossal debt that has been piled up against the State had accrued, was powerless to Iloat the warrants, is there the most remote hope of it being done under an administration that is substantially a continuation of the present? ft is claimed that the incom ing Legislature, if Republican, will be willing to guarantee interest on the warrants. The possibility of a Republican Legislature in 1807 is so remote as to practically eliminate it from all calculations; but if there is a goldbug Legislature, what assurance have we that Mr. Goss, Mr. Sullivan, or any other man can deliver the goods? Have not many of the objections to cap itol construction come from such stalwart Republican papers as the Tacoma Ledger, Spokane Spokesman, the Walla Walla Union, and other journals that claim to be the leaven of the party? Mr. Goss, in this deal, is only the little "joker" that turns up unexpectedly and results disastrously. Silver Certificates. Hon. George Turner, in a speech at Ellensbu-gh Saturday night, before a large and enthusiastic audience, paid a glowing tribute to the worth of lion. John 11. Rogers and placed P. C. Sulli van in the category of railroad monopo list tools in the State. For the past year eaid Judge Turner, this State has been the worst ring-ridden State in the Union, and the election of P. C. Sullivan will continue to keep it so. His remarks on the silver question were logical and forceful, and tbe bursts of applause be received showed that the sentiment of the people was with him. He closed his address with an appeal to the voters to throw oil' their partisanship and vote for principle; to vote their sentiments re gardless of the declarations of their party. They owed no allegiance to a party that swerved from the path of right and upheld the principles of an English policy. Gov. Pennoyer, of Oregon, prophe sies that McKinley will get less than 2,500 plurality in Multnomah county, and that Bryan will carry the State by a large majority. About 800 Silverites were in pro cession at North Yakima, Friday night. Five hundred of them carried torches. At Sumner, the goldbugs attempted a big rally last week, and 28 people re sponded and were present when the and meeting was called to order, but 13 (that unfortunate number again) when the meeting closed. The goldbug papers all come " big" with stereotyped supplements of cor poration trash, furnished by Wall streets free of all expense. Walla Walla had the largest Bryan demonstration, last Friday night, ever held in that city by any political party. Hon. John R. Rogers spoke to an immense throng, and the Statesman says, created au excellent impression. The Bryan club of the county uow numbers 1,000 votes. In a secent review of the political situation in Washington, W. C. Jones, candidate for Congress on the People's party ticket, has the following cheer ing words for the friends of bimetal lism and William Jennings Bryan: I have made six campaigns in this State before, but the present campaign is so different from all preceding ones that it is hard to comparo them. In former campaigns our difficulty has always been to till moderate-sized hall. Iu this the difficulty has been to find halls big enough to accommodate the crowds. Out of thirty meetings I have adressed this fall, in all but two in stances large numbers were unable to secure accees to the hall. The Mc- Kinleyites concede that Stevens coun ty will go 4 to 1 for Bryan, and our people claim that it will go Cto 1. In Walla Walla county a majority of all the voters belong to the Walla Walla Bryan club, and many, more are quiet ly supporting him, who are prevented from joining the club by business con siderations. Columbia county is closer but we will carry it by from 250 to 300. Garfield county will go 2to 1 for Bryan. We will carry every coun ty west of the Cascades except San Juan and Pacific, which may give small majorities for McKinley. Some of the larger counties on the other side will dispute honors with Stevens and Spokane, notable Whatcom and Suo homish. IF "clubs" were trumps, what a hand the Republicans would hold! ' Get out your llags and bunting. Is It Honest!* As Mr. C. B. Mann is again a candi date for County Treasurer, it may not be amiss to call the attention of the taxpayers of Thurston county to some facts that transpired when he was County Treasurer before. In 18'J1, when this same gentleman was County Treasurer, $59,000 of bonds of School District No. 1 passed through his hands when disposed of or sold, and for so doing he charged a commission and retained the amount of over sl,- 103. The School Board regarded the charge of Mr. Mann as exorbitant and unjust, but supposed they had no re dress and must submit. An identical case occurred in Spokane and the matter was carried to the Supreme Court, which tribunal decided that the County Treasurer had no right to charge any commission whatever. The Olympia School Board then submitted the case of Mr. Mann to the County Attorney, Mr. C. H. Ayer, who gave an opinion that Mr. Mann had no right to retain the $l,lOO, as the Su preme Court had fully settled the question. Soon after, Mr. Root suc ceeded Mr. Ayer as County Attorney, and the School Board again submitted the matter to him, and ho fully coin cided with Mr. Aver. The School Board then proposed to commence suit against Mr. Mann for the money retained by him, which, with the interest, amounted to about $1,300, but before the papers were filed a change was made in the person nel of the board and the new School Board consented to receive between two or three hundred dollars from Mr. Mann in settlemeut of the mat ter, rather than be bothered with the litigation. But is it honest for Mr. Mann to retain a thousand dollars of the money of the taxpayers of the county? Moreover, as the School Board had no right to settle the matter with him for anything less than the full amount, illegally retained by him, we shall not be surprised to see the new administration make him disgorge the balance he owes the school district. "Evil, COMMUNICATIONS" COKKUIT. —lt is a good thing to have men in your party with a high moral reputa tion to use in emergencies. It will be remembered that four years ago the Bible-class, Sunday-school reputation of John B. Allen was used to bolster up the "creepy" notoriety of John H. McGraw. It was awful straining on the reputation but had some effect, and now we find the same jaded and stretched reputation brought into requisition to hold up, if possible, a worso moral leper than before. We observe, however, that such loads are leaving their marks of worry and dis sipation on a countenance that once was "childlike and bland," and if the accommodating Senator does not repent and cease bolster ing up infamous reputations, his own will soon be on a level with those he tries to uphold. No TRUSTS UNDER BRYAN.—A gi gantic leather trust has been formed in New York, conditioned on the de feat of Bryan. It is to involve a capi tal of $10,000,000. The final clause of the agreement is significant. It reads: "This agreement to be null and void in case of election of Wm. J. Bryan to the Presidency in the forth coming election to lie held Nov. 3, 1800." Signed—Bobert 11. Foerderer, Burke Bros., J. B. Mathsin it Co., F. Blumeuthal «k Co. and Wm. 2aliu. The Man From Maine. It is liv no mi ;ins a pleasant task to criticise a visitor who lias crosseil the continent in the delusive belief that hv the exercise of his right of Amer ican citizenship he may add anything to the general intelligence of the peo ple of the Far West on political mat- tirs. It is far more so to he compelled to show up the defects of a man who, from the honors that have been ac corded liim, we have cause to hclieve should be an educated gentleman, even if lie may not possess the rudi- mintal qualifications of statesman- si li p. It is fair to state that a large major ity of the vast audience who thronged Olympia Theater, last night, to hear Congressman Botitille, of Maine, were present to do honor to the ollice he held, as well as to accord all due re spcct to the man, and it was unfortun ate for the gentleman that when a slight applause was heard in a remote part of the building when he men tioned the name of Bryan, that he was thrown completely oil' his guard and attempted to rebuke those who en gaged in it. This led to a repetition of the ollense, whereupon the speaker quite lost his temper and with Hashing eye and blazing face proceeded in the billingsgate of the street fakir to abuse a portioiTbf the people, who had as much right to make a decorous ex pression of opinion as he had, people who were as much guests of the party which entertained him as he was. This was the more unfortunate for the gentleman, inasmuch as in bis excite ment he forgot what little grammar he ever knew, and his verbs and ad verbs, nouns and pronouns, became mixed in interminable confusion. Only think of a Congressman using the word " git" for " get," and " pro gress" (verb) for "progress" (noun), and closing his tirade with " Come out from your dark place in the comer. I want to see the color of your eye. I did not come all the way from Maine to bo scared by owls in the woods- You will know more before I get through with you than you do uow,' and other undignified remarks, not to say anything of such an insolent ex hibition of temper, in the presence ot an audience largely composed of ladies. Mr. Boutelle's "arguments "were, in the main, an insult to popular in telligence, they were so easily deprived of the conclusions attempted, by the simplest of analysis. For instance, he boasted of the good times under the McKinley bill (during which " good" times the Homestead horrors culmi nated and the thousand strikes and seven hundred lock-outs occurred, and compared the value of certain sta ple products with their decreased value uow, but quoted no figures to show the increase of production, that came as a God-send to enable people to keep body and soul together. He boasted of the daily addition of two and a half millions to the wealth of the nation between 'Ol and '92, one third of the whole increment of the entire world. He gave no intimation, however, of what had become of the money, but his audience were not slow in determining that point with the $125,000,000 wallet of Kockafeller in view, and the $100,000,000 purse of the Vanderbilts swinging in the air, and the fifty to one hundred mil lion "eel-skins" bobbing up to sup ply corruption funds for stifling the voices of the hundreds of thousands of laboring men whose families are thinly clad and suffering for food. His auditors could seo the utter heart lessness of a boast of wealth for ttie few and poverty for the many. Then again he said that Bryan was in favor of a policy that would enable the man who owed" honest money" to buy silver bullion at 53 cents, take it to the mint, have it coined, and pay his sound money obligations in silver dollars. And he said this without any apparent blush of shame. Can it be possible that the statesman from Maino could have had such a con temptible opinion of a "back-woods" audience as to expect that such a silly proposition would deceive anybody? Did ho not seem to know that the weakest intellect of his own constitu ents of Skeduuk may possibly drop on the proposition that to be enabled to purchase bullion at 53 cents and by the p.ew process of free coinage convert it into 100-cent legal tender dollars, would be a bonanza to him. If any Maine man is so stone blind through Hon. Boutelle's representations, as to sell his 53 cent metal, under half its value, his body would doubtless find a resting place in Fassamaquoddy Bay eoon as the deception was discovered. But the most disingenuous and dar ing essay of the "Gentleman from Maine," was his denial that silver had been demonetized by the act of 1873. He told of the object of the law, how it was a compilation or codification of laws passed at various times by Con gress, and that the act was simply to place in compact and convenient form existing laws, and that it recognized silver by coining a new trade dollar of 420 (he said 480) grains fineness, hut he said nothing of its fruitless fight for recognition, denied as it was the autlioiity of law to circulate as a debt paying coin. He said that the coin age of dollars up to 1873 had been only $8,000,000, hut he said nothing of the " Spanish milled dollar," which was the model for weight and fineness of our own dollar and had been up to that time a full legal tender, many millions of which were in circulation. In reviewing the provisions of the act, I he omitted any reference to its most important provision, which demon etized silver and has led to all the | distress front shrinkage of property and commodity values—the transfer of the unit of value from grains of pure or 412J grains of standard silver in the coin dollar, to the mythi- cal dollar of gold of 25.8 grains. The ait deprived silver of the right to un restricted free coinage and limited its legal tender value to debts of $5. What more could he done in the way of demonetization? Still this "Con gressman" has the i tl'rontery to come j before a " backwoods" audience and | attempt to conceal facts known to the I " owls," if not to the " sardines" of Maine! He then reiterated the false hood denying the secrecy of the act of demonetization, a fact admitted for more than twenty years, and when the assertion is verified by such au thority as .Senators Thurman, Conk ling, Allison, Beck, Hereford, Howe, Garfield, and Maine's noble son, Sen ator Blaine, and Congressmen Bright, Holmau, Canton, Burchard and Kelly and President Grant. At the close of his diatribe, the speaker engaged in some low-flung abuse of Mr. Bryan which called the blush of shame to the faces of some of his own party associates. But space will not admit of a review that would take columns to embrace hare enumeration of its glaring incon sistencies and misstatements. Its only justification is found in the pre sumption that Mr. Boutelle thought be was addressing an audience in the backwoods of his own State and not •tree composed of the average intelli gence of the West. His speech was a boomerang hurled by an unskilled hand, and has turned to cut down his friends. As evidence of this, are fre quently heard comments of his audi tors. One of the candidates on the Republican ticket declared us he stood in the vestibule of the theater: " Will he never get through? He is doing more harm than good." Our Local Candidates. If the people arc sincere in their endeavors for a reform that will reach the most rigid demands of economy there should he no effort lost to secure a Legislature favorable to such changes in the law as will scale down the present expensive salary system. Our county has good material for this work in the gentlemen nayied for the Legislature. The commanding ability of Thomas J. Miller, and his sincerity and honesty, equally as well known, make him an ideal legislator; and the candidates for the lower house are ex emplars of the Jacksouian test for offi cial service, " honesty and capability." J. C. Conine. One of the next members of the House will he J. C. Conine, of Yelni. He was horn in Ashland county, Ohio, of Scotch-Irish parents, in 1839. He went with his parents to lowa, in 1852, and with a common school edu cation, began teaching school at the age of 17. He enlisted in the war in 1861, and was mustered out of service in 1857, ns Sergeant. He was taken prisoner at Pea Ridge, March 8,1862, and was held five months. He spent the 4th of July in a solitary cell in Little ltock prison; lived on corn bread and water for a month. After the war, farmed in Illinois and lowa till 1871, when lie came to Washing ton and secured a homestead. He has cleared over UK) acres since then. He He has taught school 20 years of his life, but has never held a civil office except Justice of the Peace and No tarv Public. Mr. Conine is a man of sterling in tegrity and he has the grit to stand for the right against all opposition. Dr. David UlttcUell. If ever Nature made an honest man and stamped her imprint on her hand iwork, it was when l)r. David Mitchell was ushered into this " vale of tears." He comes of Irish and English ances try of the pilgrim stock. He was born in Ontario, Upper Canada, in April, 1848. He attended school and college in Canada, graduating in medicine in 1869, before he had arrived at the age of majority. After four years of pro fessional work in Canada, he moved to Otsego, Michigan, where lie practiced his profession 18 years, and then moved to this city, where he has been engaged in the real estate business having made no effort to establish an extended practice. Dr. Mitchell has filled such minor positions as alderman and school director, in his former home, hut has never filled a political position. He has been a Democrat ever since a resident of this country. Arlbur Callow. The People's nomiuee for County Clerk, Arthur Callow, is a native of Wisconsin, and was brought to this country by his family when but three years of age. He was reared on his father's ranch, about 20 miles from this city, attending school whenever an opportunity was presented. At an early age he performed service in log ging camps, doing a man's work. In 18S6 he entered Olympia Collegiate Institute, taking the winter course, while the summer months were spent *n the logging camps. Ho graduated in the Commercial course in 1889. He was employed for a time iu the office of County Auditor and in keeping and posting books. In the fall of 1889 he again entered the Institute, and grad uated in the Normal course the follow ing year, being valedictorian of his class. After filling various positions as accountant and book-keeper, Mr. Callow in 1890, at the age of 21, was elected City Clerk, au otfice he filled till 1893. During a large portion of this time the writer served as Coun cilman and can testify to his ability, industry and. integrity. In 1893 lie served as accountant for the Olympia Door and Lumber Co. Mr. Callow was married in 1893 to Miss Mary E. Chilberg. Of late years he has been in the employ of one of the leading grocery establishments of the city, and it is what he conceives to be a duty to his employer that has kept him from making a tour of the county iu the in. terest of his candidacy. It may he well to remark that Mr. Callow has passed the best examina tion attained by any applicant of this city before the civil service commission of tlie Postal department. No candi date has entered the race better equipped for the service that will de volve upon him than Arthur Callow for County Clerk. Thomas J. .Miller Was born in Pennsylvania, and is 3'J years of age. His father was an old soldier, who carried scars to his grave, and who died about two months ago in that State. Mr. Miller has resided in various cities of the Union. He was always a great student of political economy. A cigarmaker by trade, he has always been a strong labor union advocate. He is, at present, an active member of the Cigarmakers' Union. He has resided in this county about six years. lie came here from Aber deen, Wash., and worked at his trade until about two years ago, when he bought a small farm near Belmore. Mr. Miller is a man of marked men tal force, possessing an analytic mind, well stored with the results of careful reading and mature reflection. Ready of speech and logical in debate, he will he more than a match for any goldbug that can he pitted against him. If you vote a single X at the head of your ticket—by all odds the best plan—all is well; hut if you do not, don't omit to place your mark opposite T. J. Miller's name. JuuieM Krewer. The candidate for county commis sioner of this district, James Brewer, is a man who has spent almost all his life in Thurston county. He is a thorough busiucss man, and every in terest he has is identified witli our people. He was born in Linn county, Oregon, 37 years ago, and was brought to this city by his parents, when but eight months old, and was reared in this community. He has been in the market business many years, and has demonstrated the possession of just those characteristics which are needed in the management of the public af fairs so closely identified with the otfice of Commissioner. He stands squarely upon the platform of re trenchment; favors unqualifiedly the plank that county olliccs shall be maintained at a cost not exceeding the salary of the head of each depart ment, and will accord special favors to nobody. Under his tenure, the exemption of property listed for taxa tion at the demand of leading " pluto crats," will never be conceded, and he will earnestly labor to place our county affairs on a safe business basis. John L. Vuntii. The same general comments apply to the candidacy of John L. Yantis, the People's candidate for Commis sioner in the Third district, lie has been a resident of this county for the past 42 years, residing on a farm near Bucoda. His occupation has been that of farmer and logger, and as he has scored a marked success in the man agement of his own affairs, it is a re liable index of his qualifications for performing a like service for the county. Mr. Yantis was born in .Sa line county, Mo., in 1845, and crossed the plains with his father's family when a lad nine years of age. Charles A. Billings. For Sheriff, the People's Party pres scnt an ideal ticket in Charles A. Bil lings. During his father's long ser vice in that position, Mr. Billings be came familiar with all the duties of this important office, and he will en ter upon the service with an accurate conception of its requirements. Charley was born in this county, has always lived here and all his interests are identified with the tax-paying public. He has, by card, over his signature, pledged himself to discharge the duties of the otlice for the salary allowed by law, and this will save from $1,200 to $1,500 annually to the people. Benjamin Ilarned Mr. Harued's long experience as undertaker iu this community is a qualification for the office of Coroner, but far more important to the public is the fact that under his electiou we have a guaranty that the otfice will not be made the means of " bleeding" the Treasury by useless and extrava gant fees, as has been done in times past. J. C. IflcFaddeu. It is scarcely necessary to say any thing in support of the " McFaddeii" family. Everybody knows just where to find the candidate for County Pur veyor, J. C. McFaddeii. Whatever he does will be done well, and he is in full accord with the patriotic principles of the People's Party. Kobert Front. Mr. Frost is likewise an old resident of the county. He belongs to the sturdy yeomanry and has contributed a life of energy towards the building up of our county and city. Nobody can breathe the slightest asjiersion against his honesty, a qualification so essential for one who is to handle the people's money. He has lieen a con tinuous resident of Thurston county the past 36 years, and in every path way of life assumed by him he has "acted well his part" wherein "the honor lies," and will be able at the end of his term to give a like goo* 1 account of his stewardship. Hobt. <• rail a ill. The record of Mr. Graham as City Clerk is enough to nilbrd ample proof that he will be the right man iu the office of County Auditor. He is faith ful and capable. He numbers his friends by the hundreds all over the county, and his election is assured. O. D. Sullivan. In no otfice in the county do we re quire sounder business discretion and firmness than that of Assessor. Eminently well qualified by these re quisites is Mr. Pullivan. He is ex ceedingly popular in the country pre cincts where he is best known, and his many friends in town will see that he receives his full party strength at the polls. I'upt. Xlouroe. Last but nor least is Capt. Monroe, who is named for that useless otfice on the placid waters of Puget Pound— Wreckmasler —but if the reader will excuse the use of the " chestnut," we would suggest that his services may be required to look after the goldbug's sinking ship on the -Ith prox. The Captain is a true silver man and for that he should receive the vote of every patriot.
