i BESOIXTION of endorsement. Wbekras, the Douglas Indepejtdkkt, a newspaper published in Roseburg, has been published in this county for the period of three year ; and Whereas, mid newspaper i now well established, and during a three years' trial it has faithfully served the interests of the producer and tax-payer ; therefore be it fietohed. We, the member of the TTmp. ?ua Q ran tre No. 28, do rive The Douglas KDkFEKDEirrour unqualified eodoeement. and would recommend It a a newspaper worthy the patron (re of every farmer and tax-payer In Southern Oregon. : I I 1 Geo.

KELLY & WELLS. INDEPENDKNTS TO THE FRONT. Thinking that Independents belong to the class thafdoot spin," or wor tor their livelihood, and the accumu lation of the means with which to buy a home, the Boseburg and Jackson county rinirs are jubilant A letter from Jaci -ocvllle reads thus: " The ref ' vthipper-la ' has gone to ... Poniard and is sooa expected to re-urn. Whether he will return with a "bar'I " of Tallow ducats 1 know not. But in this rounlT this vear you may rest sssured every. thing will be done to carry the Interest of the ring," 'Sow strange I The "Chief" in question has been here. He passed through the city on his way to Port landhas returned by the same route and following upon the heels of bis coins? and coming, we have received the following note from a gentleman whom we will vouch for, so far as the general question as to his piominence In opposing wrong, his means a. tax-payer and his reputation as an honest and successful farmer is con cerned l . '; ., : v " There is something wrong, I judge so from the fact that since a certain man from Jackson county visited this place, the Roseburp rinit hsi found extaa reason for ieeiinflr lubilant: and I think that .this extra reason baa come in the shape of promise of combination between the rings of this county and those of Jackson. The two letters, coming at one and . the same time, and one confirming the statements of the other, and ne ther party acquainted with the other, are significant facts, well worthy the : consideration of every honest citizen and taxpayer. If there is to be such a : combination formed and who can now -doubt that it has not already been made who will not say tbat any Efforts made or any action taken by Independents in the two counties named, will be justifiable as so much work done in a l ighteous cause T We have no battle to wage only in favor of taxpayers. The motto at the head of this paper forces us to be of and one of the people. We, In en lightened and free America, wish no greater distinction. Then, as one of the people and an Independent, our cry will be out il answered, "Inde pendent to the front I " We have but - one cause, and that is common be tween us. It is all embraced in one sentence and a patriotic sentence at that : Honest home rule, low taxa - tion, and prosperity of the people I We want no more black-mud swindles! By our efforts and our votes and our sensible discrimination in favor of honest men, we have put the ' conn ty out of debt tod brought its warrants to par value ! By voliog for honest men, and by intrusting them with the management of social administrations we have invariably gained, as the re suit which has invarltably followed has been announced by a decrease In the cost of management of county affairs 1 But on the other hand why have we thus worked T The answer cornea back, simple and easily to be understood! very time the ring has labored to Its own success, it baa fol lowed the rule clear to the end, to fill the pockets of Its members, and the government of the counties have not been conducted as a matter of speculation in favor of the people, but as a matter of speculation and profit to the rings. Under Independent rule the rings' debts bave been cut down. Under the rings' managements the debts have been made, and after wards caused to grow larger i ' These are the facts. Let Independ ents who do not want any more of the rings' work, come to the front in this much to prepare themselves for the battle that is fast approaching between right and wrong. "Forewarned fore- . 'armed. "t From this time on this should be our motto and yuor our aim should be to work first, last and all the time against the common enemy. On the 3d Instant the glad tidings of frost and ice at Memphis waa flashed along the wires North and South, and also that the epidemic of 1879 in that fever-ridden city was at an end. But t there was nothing sent by telegraph to the effect that a sure remedy for vellow fever and that means for its prevention had been discovered. Thefkstonishment, tbat he had not news was plain ana simple : " xne danger is over and you can return home in safety." With all their learning, and the experience of prac titioners handed down for centuries, those brave doctors, those angelio nurses, who have braved death and came out unscathed from the encoun ter, bave nothing new to tell us, nor a single new certain remedy to annouuoe. It seems that yellow fever In the South is inevitable in its recur rence as are tbe season, and that with each succeeding year It must find so many victims. This may not leave ns -without the hope that a remedy and means of prevention will be fmin.1. Throne the practical experl- .noAnfthA aborleineas the virtues of Peruvian bark were discovered. In this case of yellaw fever It win be very difficult to first discover the Indian, but more difficult and bother s a me to find one who will know more than our doctors of medicine. DEATH OF TWO GREAT KEN. The death of General Joseph Hooker at Garden City la something for ths nation to weep over. He was a man who ever had a personal identity. He was the brave and gallant soldier who was many time breveted for bis dar ing courage In the war with tlezioo. He was the' road builder of Oregon as the lneff&ced marks of bis work yet to be traced all along the Canyonville canyon will silently testify. When it came to battle for the preservation of the Union of these United States and the perpetuation of the best form of government God's glorious sun ever shone upon, there be was known and honored as "Fighting Joe Hooker." He met with defeats it is true, i But no historian will ever write that defeat came to the hero because he was lack ing in courage and honesty; even bis last fight with Death was one in which Fear took not a single part, and Hook er would have lived bad not the odds been against him in the form ;of Old Age and its attending disorders. The nation will show rejpect for the departed hero in public demon strations of grief in the way of guards of honor and national salutes ; but the most sincere tribute, and the one most touching and glorious to the memory of the dead man is and will be the deep, silent and inxpressive sorrow of these who loved or admired the man while living for his Individuality and Its twin-brother Fearlessness. The sudden death of Henator Chan dler, following so close upon that of General Hooker, is, to carry out the idea of the old monks In St Jerome's time, that no great spirit ever left the world tbat we know of without it was accompanied by another. Zacbariah Chandler's ghost was a great bptrit. While living be was a great man. It makes no difference if Hooker was a Democrat and Chandler a Republican. Both were great men and both died and but a few hours (a second In the whispering of an angel's wing) inter vened in the flight of two souls for their abiding place. It may be by many thought this idea, given birth during the days of strange supersti- suuons ana ioousn tnougnts, was but a fancy of that lime. But who can prove truth is to the con trary t . '. 'I But leaving this one thought out of the question, the death of Chandler is a serious misfortune to the country and the Republican party. He was, like the late Senator Sumner, the im personation of an idea. He was of that unyielding character which be- loogs to tbo combinations found in leaders of men or the authors of great ideas, and coupled wlih these combi nations he had flVm resolution! o.d fixed purposes." Like Sumner, noth ing could turn bim from the road which led him in the direction of the ends he purposed accomplishing, and again like the Massachusetts states man be believed not in the honesty of the Republic which permitted slavery to exist within its confines. As a re publican he simply lived, as a republi can he argued for universal rights,' and a republican be died. We say tbis for the reason that the mau's ideas and purpose may be truth fully chronicled. What does it matter if upon other matters the dead man's mind wavered and was at fault ? Who can say that one idei was not what he came to the world for? All great leaders Are known for their one idea, and sad to say, whether successful or not, the time is fixed when they shall die. They serve only as an illustration as of some startling and before incom prehensible point in the magazine of life, and then that is the end of them. " Simply this and nothing more." "Junius Brutus ' - report of an " un filed" opinion in the Supreme Court of the State of Oregon in the Jcase of Huat and Wah-ker vs. Tiegbl has everywhere been favorably received. The extra edi.lon of tbe Independent issued has been exhausted. There seems that there is reason for the be lief tbat tbe present Supreme Court is in disrepute, and that the people of Ore gon should be thankful to "Junius Brutus " for his maoly and independ ent course and his knowledge of law which allows him to name the fault In the Judg s In the eyes of the law correctly in the sight of all fairness Justly. We might add, it is a pity there have been no more of the family of Junius. Through the absence of members of the family to take notes and criticize opinions wrong ideas bave crept Into the Statute pages of many State law books ; owing to their absence many a corrupt Judge bas un molested continued his way corrupt but undiscovef able ; owing to their absence many a deserving client bas went to his grave, poverty-stricken and buried by common charity be cause a venal judge has given to others the property the poor, honest client had worked long and honestly to se cure. Then give us more of the family. We do not want them vain glorious because of their renowned ancestry, but champions of the right, and aa In this case fearless to speak the into. The grumblings of the members of the Roseburg ring who talk it abtit that this paper is a "hired organ,'! forcibly reminds us of the story of a gambler on a Mississippi, river steam er. Watching hla opportunity, he slipped out foor aces and placed them on his knee under the table. The man next to him discovered the trick, and, without belog observed, took the aces and put a very poor hand in their place. The gambler and dealer ex changed his hand for what he sujh posed to be bis aces, and without look ing to see bet largely, and when called oy ms opponent round, to his utter ;even a single pair. " Gentlemen," said he, "I shall play no longer. There is cheating around this board I" The ring may charge others with wrong, but In tbe little game it Is setting up it may, like the Mississippi gambler, find it has lost its four aces. The election at Oakland last Mon day resulted In a victory to the antl IncOrporators. The original incorpo rators were defeated by a majority so large in comparison with the minority vote that it seems they had all their money put up on winning a slow race! But don't cry, boys. Yoa know that the people of these United States are devilish queer. When a thing is done that does not suit theirp: rticuiar fancy they abide their time (as in this Oak land matter), and then they go to work silently, surely and effecUvelyand cor rect the wrong done. Hurrah for the people I THE t&BOOLHABXS, The town is full of them w mean stjhool-marru'a. They are of tha rosy cheeked, dimpled chinned, how-pleas ant-would-I t-be-were-yo u-to-teach-us kind. Tbey wear pleasant faces, neat dresses, neat shoes or boots, and are so dainty with their dresses when crossing the street that we feel like ex claiming In the language of a mortal bard Gh, I'd like to be a scholar - And with te scholars stand, A kiss upon my forehetd, A school-marm by the hand: Then I'd make the sweetest mnslc, something beyond boo-lioo I That's the way In all creation, Between I and you. Then they are everywhere to make the lover of the good and the beauti ful feel bad because he cannot appro priate all that there Is nice in the world to himself. No wonder the fair sex In Roseburg, in the way of self-protection and to keep their sweethearts at a safe dis tance, pair-off with tbe school-marms! If the Institute should continue an other week we would not be surprised to hear that the dally custom bad be come general to offer in addition to the usual evening prayer And make our husbands faithful to nst The very old Adam is in all man kind. He could not resist the charms of Mother Eve, and for the love of a beautiful woman threw the world and eternal, peace away. There are Just now a number of mju-ried men In town who may throw their eternal peace away. While we cannot blame them severely we pick for them from Shakspeare tbe following doleful ditty which they may paste In their hats and retain for future use: I'm sorry I met the school-marms I really am, I swear! See this patch upon my forehead T Then 1 haven't any hair! A correspondent wants to know if we believe a Republican to be better than a Democrat. If the Lord loves us and we hope He does He has never given ua power to discriminate between tbe two parties. Bo far as tbe leaders of tbe two parties are con cerned we regard them as cut from the same piece of cloth, since all are anxious and willing and will under any circumstances take office when they can get office. As to the rank and file of both parlies the men who do the voting we have always found them tbe same, and there a Democrat wilt be found as good as a Republican. We have warm friends in both politl cal parties, but It matters not who is a Democrat or who is a Republican. rne matter or political belief upon their part has no effect upon our love for our friends. The threat made by two members of tbe Supreme Court to disbar "Junius Brutus" must bave been manufac tured from one single piece of beaver or started by some one high in author ity with the view of intimidating tbat fearless and truthful writer. In either case tbe reporter of opinions " unfiled can and will write and be crucified between yon all if need be. His crucifixion, in the event such thing takes place, will not essentially differwith that which occurred about eighteen hundred and seventy-nine years ago at a place called Mount Cal vary. Sixteen yean ago a woman at Bridgeport, Conn., was accused by a neighbor of stealing his watch. There was no evidence against ner, nor was she able to give satisfactory proof of her innocence. She grieved constant ly ovir the matter, and of late, as she grew old and decrepid, she feared that she would die without being able to clear herself of the disgrace. But the watch has now been turned up by a plow In a field where the careless owner originally lost it. We hear considerable to the effect that politicians have commenced lay ing their wires for the next June cam paign. We wish to be particular in our statements of facts and therefore' will not give names of the "early birds "Just now; suffice it to say that tbey are after the " worm." Under "the present state of existing affairs ' our advice to Independents is : "Don pledge yourselves to vote for any man yet; but wait and see whether or no the ring members will support him. Our readers will not be surprised to learn that Chaa. De Young has been indicted by the Grand jury ol San Francisco for an assault with intent to kllL They only hope that a verdict, rendered by an honest jury, of guilty, will follow tbe indictment. Tbe time for assassinations has gone by. Thelaw must be all-powerful ; and no man must be permitted to play the part of an assassin, even In tbe defense of any one, if he provokes the assault. An attache of the Bodie Standard recently, on the occasion of his birth day, went In debt for a spring chicken to the extent of $1 25, wherewith to appropriately celebrate the event. Upon dressing the fowl five distinct articles of gold jewelry were found in its crop, which aggregated $4 85. He sold the bullion, paid for the bird, and with the remaining $3 40 coppered the ace and lost. Walker's Staticlan for the produce exchange, after a careful estimate, places the wheat crop of the United States this year at 425,000,000 bushels. TheSpiing wheat crop is over esti mated. The amount consumed by 48,000,000 persons, plus tbe amount required for seed and other purposes, is placed at 250,000,000 bushels, leav 160,000,000 bushels for export to Eu rope and 15,000,000 bushels for other porta. j ""I' An; exchange Informs na that a "square-toed" Democratic paper will soon be started in Lake county.
