TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1000. Eor President: WILLIAM McKINLEY of Ohio. Fjr Vice-President: THEODORE ROOSEVELT of New York. For Presidential Electors. TILMON FORD Marion County J. C. FULLEPTON Douglas County W. J. FURNISH Umatilla County O. F. PAYTON Multnomah County In its last issue the Times quotes from Carl Schurz's open letter to Secretary Gage and says: "It absolutely eliminates Gage and Gageism from the con troversy." Now, let the Times publish Mr. Gage's reply to the German statesman and let its readers hold an inquest over Schurz. Mr. Bryan says the present campaign "is a contest between democracy on the one hand and plutocracy on the other." With such plutocrats as Jones, Croker, Clark, of Montana, and a hun dred of others of like ilk sup porting Mr. Bryan, it looks like that gentleman's party was at war with itself. President McKinley's letter of acceptance, which has just been -given to the public, is a most ad mirable work of state craft. Here are the statements taken from the records by one in authority, in opposition to the insinuations, surmises and accu sations ot a man who is totally irresponsible for his utterances. Mr. Brvan has contented him self with abuse of the republi--Bh-pVrty and its administration, while Mr. McKinlev has laid bare its record and called upon the people to pass jugginent. Editor A. D. Hale has stepped out of the sanctum of the Albany People's Press into the pulpit of the Umversalist church of that city. In his val edictory he says: "When I took charge of this paper it had very little credit, either financial or moral, at home or abroad. Fin ancially the Press is on a sound basis and has paid its own way, enabling us to live comfortably and discount every bill and pay our help promptly every Satur day night since' I have owned it." The populistic supporters of Mr. Hale' paper have evi dently been making money un der this McKinley administra tion. What Mr. Bryan considers one of his strongest indictments against the republican party, is the charge that ' the war taxes were purposely arranged in the interest of the corporatiefhs. The Pullman Company stamps its taxable paper without adding to the price of its service to the publio or abating the wages of its employes. The railroad com panies stamp their bills of lading without trying to pass the tax to their customers. The only corporation in the United States that in the beginning exacted the war stamp from the people was Wells, Fargo, and its presi dent, John J. Valentine is out tooth and toe nail for Brvan. The defeat of Wiliiam McKin ley next November would mean not only a panic in the business world, due to a threatened radi cal change in the policies of the government, but it would mean a loss k the country of the ser vices of that wise executive him self and his splendid cabinet headed by Secretary Hay, whose achievements in diplomacy dur ing the Chinese embroilment have marked him the greatest living diplomat. The experi ence of these men and the confi dence the people have learned to repose in them, would mean a severe blow to the country, were it to lose their services during the next four years by the de feat of McKinley, Times must be good up in Eastern Oregon. The Pendle ton East Oregonian of September; 5th tells of an excursion tain passing through . there from Baker City to the Portland! carnival that had 17 pas- j senger coaches when it? pulled out of l'eiidieloii. Bakefl City lurntslieu ovt-r 300 passen gers a6 $7.50 a ticket for the round trip, and Pendleton 125 at $5 Eugene Guard. Yes; and times are good in the Willam ette valley; and, in fact, all over Oregon, notwithstanding Mr. Bryan's prediction that the establishment of the "old stand ard would bankrupt the country. The Elk's excursion took nine coaches of people out of Albany and eight coaches were added at Salem. There is plenty of money in the oonntry and the workingmau has it -to spend. Just now the farmers of the Willamette Valley are being urged and advised by the press, of all shades of political belief, in this section to engage exten sively in raising sheep and cat tle; and we believe the advice is wise. No farmer who intends engaging in sheep raising and is aware of Mr. Bryan's views on tariff on wool will cast a vote for that gentleman. If it is true, as all concede, that wheat-raising has been ov'er done in this sec tion, and our farmers contem plate investiug in sheep, they are not going to vote to kill that enterprise before it is established, by supporting a man who is un alterably opposed to a tariff on wool. During the last four years the sheep industry has so grown in Oregon that the reven ue from sheep and wool exceeds the revenue from wheat in this state, and the most ardent free trader will admit that the pro tection afforded this enterprise by the McKinley tariff, revived it from the crushing blow it re ceived under the Wilson bill. Billy and Nannie Goat. George A. Houck, the well known farmer and stock-raiser of Monroe, has written a very in teresting article to the Pacific Homestead and the following ex tract, on the subject of goats, and the dividends an investment in them will yield, will be very instructive to many who are en gaged in this branch of industry or who may have expectations of making any such a move. He says: I run my goats in two general classes those on sha-es and those kept on my own land. As to the relative profit of these classes, it would be a difficult matter to oampare. as the ones kept on my own land are clear ing brush for me in addition to the annual dividends cut from their backs and the sale of the increase. The ones on shares, however, have never paid less than 30 per cent, per anHUin on the investment, and in one case I made 65 per cent, per annum 011 the actual cash investment for a term of three years on a bunch of 60 head. I usually let them for terms of three years, getting half of the mohair each year, getting the old stock and half the increase at end of term. I sometimes let them for a year at a time, however, and as I have just divided on one band I cau give my exact income for the last year or rather, teu months. These were average nannies: Income for mohair, 186 pounds at 30 cents, $ 55 80 Income from increase after the old stock was made good. 47 head at $3, 141 00 Total income $196 80 My tdiare being $ 98 40 In other words, the 50 goats are worth as much as $1,640 at 6 per cent. These figures for the kids are what they could have been sold for when divided. I did not sell I bought. State Fair. The Corvallis & Eastern Railroad has made a rate of one fare for the round trip from all points to Albany account State Fair, Salem. Tickets good going Sept 17th to 22nd inclusiye, and return ing not later than September 24th. Greater efforts are being put forth this year to make the State Fair a success than ever before in its history. The dis play in all lines, and particularly live stock, will be the finest ever known in the state. The dairy interests which are now creating considerable attention throughout the valley will receive care ful consideration, and there will be a good display of all kinds of creamery machinery. The Fair this year should he visited by everyone who has the development of the country at heart.

Every farmer in this county should take an active personal in terest in the exhibit and assist the committee to make the best show ing of any county entering the con test at 1'n a fair. Manufacturers and others will find this an excel lent opportunity to advertise their products and it should not be per mitted to pass.
