These cars will take cattle to Montana, purchased from our citizens by a cattle firm that has been in our midst lor some time. "Too Good." Some arc saying that a par ticular candidate on the Democratic ticket is "too rood a man tor the office." Well, that Is certainly one of the very best objections that could be urged against a man, and ol course will do him "good." "Too good a man to to hold office," who ever heard of such a thing. Bio Breeches. A gentleman from Hub bard. Creek felt so large the other day, and ac cordingly walked into one of the Rosebnrg stores and bought a beautiful pair of breeches corresponding to his feelings. When he went home and "tried them on" they were about twelve sues too large, and this destroyes the old maxim "too big for his breeches." Card ok Thanks. May 1st, 1886, Fhile tarian Lodge No. I. O.

For colic, grubs, lung fever, cough or hide lnmnd, I give Simmons Liver Regulator (liquid) in jjne ounce doses; or, one teaspoonful of the powder in a mash twice a day.

Miller's address to the club was heartily en dorsed by the members and visitors. I lis views on the prohibition question are extreme, claiming tliat the guilt ol the murderer hangs on those who sell intoxicating drinks, likewise on the licencing party, his arguments were for cible and expressed with moderation. Mr. A. Eustick of Springfield Lane Co. gayo a short but interesting discourse which was ap preciated. Rev. G- W. Miller of the Baptist church, Civil Bend, was chosen to address the club next Tuesday night. XV. Alexander, Sec. The Soiree. The Eastern Stars did shine beautifully last Wednesday night. The music both instrumental and vocal, was ol the most classical kind. We have not the space to particularize, and only feel that we must say that "When the leaves begin to fall," as ren tiercu ty Mrs. j. YV. bnort ot Wilbur was never excelled in any of her pieces before a Roseburg audience except possibly, when she some eight or nine years ago sang "The Beautiful Isles of the sea:", Mrs. S. C.

All deserve praise for the interest taken and the stars will forever shed their mellow light upon all the patronizing friends. Receipts about $So.oo. S i raws. "Staws show which way the wind blows" and the Oregonian has this to say of Multnomah Democracy. Taken through out, the Democratic county ticket, nominated on Saturday, need not be ashamed ol compar ison of material with the Republican ticket nominated a week earlier. Moreover, in not being "a set-up job," it has a distinct advan lage. 1 ne ticket was not made by a ring, nr for ring purposes. Democrats say it will get the entire Democratic vote of the county, and probably it will. Particular men upon it will be supported also by great numbers of Republican independent voters, partly because of their recognized fitness and partly as means of administering a rebuke to that close corporation known as the Republican ring of ibis county. Therefore in making up their county ami legislative tickets, great numbers 1 -f independent voters will exercise a careful discrimination. In particular they will vote against the most active and offensive of the Republican ring tools and managers. Some say they will vote the entire Democratic ticket though the number of these probably will not be large. But there are abundant signs that the knife will be used freely against the ring ticket. It should be used freely enough to re tire the bosses from "practical politics." Hat Accepted. The . following letter from Judge L, I Moshcr to Col. T. B.

Indian War Veterans.

Burnett, L. F. Lane, Captain. Acting Orderly Scrgh, Jtutler Denounces the Boycott. New York, May, 1. Gen. Ben. Butler has this to say about the boycott: "It is ut terly unjustifiable, and should not be adopted by laboring men especially because it is the weapon of capital, used by capital from time beyond memory. That is to say, whoever in all the world's history has stood forth as an advocate of the rights of labor, whether in the forum as a politician, in the legislative hall as a statesman, in the courts as a lawyer, or in the press as a journalist, has always been boycotted by capitalists. Now when laborers, by legal means and organization through the ballot-box can control capital and make laws as the laborer pleases, why resort to a partial, illegal and always nnjust remedy such as boycotting which is the miserable invention of an op- pressed people who have no power to raise their voice in making the laws which govern them? Boycotting is a confession of weakness not an exhibition of strength. It cannot be dropped too soon. It is a two edged sword, more dangerous in the hands of unskillfuf wielders, to themselves than to others." Only Half Alice. There are hosts of men and women who, to coin a phrase, are only half alive. That is to say, they have seldom if ever any appetite, are nervous, weak, fidgetty and troubled by num bcrless small pains and aches. In the presence of vigorous, exuberant vitality theysccni mere pigmies. Such persons are usually fond of fre quently dosing themselves, swallowing in the course of the year enough drugs to stock any apothecary's shop of averagedimensions. This of course, defeats instead of furthering the end in view, viz., the recovery of health and vigor, Were they to seek it from an unfailing source of vitality, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, how umerent would te tneir case, men vigor would return to their debilitated frames, the glow of health to their wan cheeks, their tremb- .ing uncertain gait would grow firm and elaS' tic, appetite, that grandest of all sauces, would give a relish for the daily food, were it ever so coarse, and refreshing sleep would crown the tasks ol the day, CIUCtTIT COURT PROCEEV1SG8.

There seems to be no good reason why the en tire ticket should not be elected. Butler from Polk for Congress, and Pennoyer from Multno mah county for Governor is a strong head to any ticket. With such men to lead success is assured. Hon. Mr. Gibbons for Secretary of State on the Democratic ticket will comedown from eastern Oregon like an avalanche upon our friend McBride. Mr. Gibbons is a man well prepared to conduct the business belong ing to that office. Hon. R. S. Strahan of Al bany, than whom a better qualified jurist never wore the ermine is to be our next Supreme Judge. His opponent Judge Waldo is not his equal much less his peer. Judge Strahan is known to some extent personally in southern Oregon, and we shall roll up a large vote for him. , tme two leaders. . The News lias this to say editorially of our two leading standard bearers in the coming conflict. "The convention was well attended and we proceedings harmonious, ihere was a manifest determination to take advantage ol what have been paraded as the mistakes of the Republicans, to avoid all appearance , ol ring dictation, either in platform or resolutions or in the nomination of candidates. Great care, therefore, was taken in the appointment ol committees and managing the details of the convention. There was a disposition on the part of a few delegates to hurry things through but they were promptly informed that there was no occasion for haste, and that the busi ness that brought them together must be trans acted with deliberation and circumspection The various committees were apjiointcd and the convention adjourned until 7 o'clock in the evening in order to give the committee on plat form time to report. At the evening session the platform was reported, discussed and adop ted without much change. The nomination of Sylvester Tennoyer on the third ballot was no doubt the strongest the convention could have made. It seems to be conceded that the result in the State will be determined by Multnomah county and there is little question that Mr. Pennoyer will poll a larger vote iri this county tlian any other candi date who could have been named. On some of the questions which have agitated public opinion, the News has been in full accord with Mr. Tcnnoyer, and it respects him highly as a man of independent thought and action, and one who has the courage of his convictions. In addition, it is free to express the belief that if he is elected Governor, he w ill administer the affairs of the State in an honorable and ef ficient manner, and to the entire satisfaction of the people. N . L. Butler, of Polk county, who was nom inated for Congress by acclamation, is a lawyer in Dallas, of the firm of Daly & Butler. His nomination by acclamation shows that he will have the united support of his party. He is said to be a good -citizen and an able man, and will probably come as near keeping Bingcr Herman's majority within reasonable limits as any other candidate who could have been nominated . Hon. G. W. Webb of -Union is a man of excellent financial abilily and will conduct the affairs of stale in a different manner from pre vious mcumoents. ucorge Washington was honest; and Mr. Webb is one namesake of the father of this country who is in this respect deserving of the "G.

It is true that Th e Rev i ew has opin ions of its own. yet in Mr. Nickels opinion we "vaccillate" and our profession disquali fies us from running a journal in the interests of the party anil this has been "demonstrated" so he says, therefore we arc at a loss to know what to do in his case, until he shall suggest.

Whilst the resolutions passed by the Dem ocratic County Convention do not contain all that should be embodied in a state platform they do contain many practical propositions suitable to the wants of Douglas county and on these wc commend them to every intelli gent voter for careful consideration. That a public office is a public trust is the declaiation of a principle which should be upheld by all good citizens in office and " out of office lioth in state, nation and municipality. The more general the principle becomes recognized lha public officers are trustees of express trust and directly accountable to the people who elect them, the purer will become the public service.. The more that candidates for public office arc made to feel that the office is intended for the public good instead of jerquisites for tho successful candidate, the better will the office be administered. Thi stricter we hold our public servants to account directly to " the people for their stewardship and recognize in a faithful and honest public official his fitness lor place and position and visit our condemnation upon such as are der elict in their duty, the less cause will we have for complaint in public matters. The duties of no office are so complex or difficult but every intelligent voter may readily comprehend its workings and the more general the people become acquainted with officials actions the lettcr will it be lor us all and the more eco nomical will our affairs tic conducted. So much inequality exists between capital and labor that society is almost over-thrown and the business of the country in chaotic con tusion. This condition of affairs is attribu table in a measure to vicious legislation in the interest of organized capital which has grown opulent from the sweat of the toiling millions. That legislation is demanded upon this labor question is attested by the numerous strikes which the strong arm of the law is called up on to control. If a just equality was main tained between the workman and his employ cr there would le no occasion for military or martial interference in a free Republic in times of ieacc, and the voter who is unwilling to favor legislation which will secure to the hired laborer his earnings is unworthy the privileges of citizenship. The trickster who will attempt to maintain by sophistry the jernicious practice of hiring out the convict lalxr of the state at a price lie- low the cost of guarding and maintaining the prisoners, deserves no consideration at your hands. When viewed in the light of truth and intelligence no conscientious voter can maintain the practice of placing the labor ol these cemvicts in competition with the products of honest workmen and mechanics, that con tractors and speculators may make a profit at the expense of the state.' The public lands off right lclong to the people and the pernicious principle of granting them by the wholesale to corporations for speculations should forever cease.. The lione fldc homestead and pre-emption settler must be protected, and should be encouraged to lay deep his hearth-stone and erect the home roof on a solid foundation that his children's children may call him blessed and the country rejoice in their patriotism. The evil of the Chinese scourge is upon us we tli2 people of the Pacific coast feci it more keenly than any other section of the country we -have a right to and do demand wise and prompt action on this question. Honest laborers and mechanics should not be forced into competition with these serfs who can and do live upon garbage and cheap food which is neither palatable or sufficient to sustain the white laliorcrs. They are not of our people and do not affiliate with us and self preser vation demands that they should lie removed 1 from. our land. That the wealth which they are sending from our shores to China be turned nto legitimate channels and that the gold they send away may remain with us and be used by our own laborers to build and decorate the homes of our own people. The Democratic party is essentially a party of the people and for the people and works for the good of society and whenever occasion demands a change in the organic laws is equal to all emergencies. We have spoken in favor of submitting the pending constitutional amendment to prohibit the liquor traffic to a vote of the people of the state. Further than this the most ardent agitator cannot go; noth ing beyond this can be demanded al this time. HECROLOOY. HOBBINS. LosAngels California, April the 22, 1SS0. Died in this city Mrs. Sarah Tiobbins, wife ut Ellas Robbins of Dora Coos county Oreg-on. Bartuolovkw Wihtk. BURT. Miss Abigail T. Burt was born near Greenfield 111., but spent most of her life in Wisconsin. In 1853 her father moved with his family to Oregon and in 1854 settled on Deer Creek near Roseburg where she taught her first family school in the family ol Samuel Harkncss. In the fall of 1855 ghc entered the Wilbur Academy which she attended for two years. Alter her return she taught in the fam ily of Leonard Bucll and from that lime she has taught in families and districts through Doug las, Jackson, Josephine and Linn counties, From her earliest childhood she was remark- aoie lor ner singularly sweet and winning manners, nearly always cheerful and hopeful; even the same after she found-that the stroke of paralysis which she received in her eleventh year had doomed her ever afterward to depend on crutches every step she took. Universally beloved by old and young, she gratefully re membered and treasured up the many offer ings of love she so often received, and near her last moments said "say good bye to all my friends. Most of her life an humble but faithful follower of Christ, she seemed anxious at the last to give her dying testimony; she said she wanted the whole world to know that she "had lived for Christ, that he was all in all to her. Oh, how she longed to go and be with him, and join the lovetf ones who had passed on before. For many weary nights and days the patient sufferer waited for the summons, but said she was willing to wait she knew thai God meant all her sufferings for her good. April 22nd, 1SS6 the weary weight of suffering was laid aside and the freed spirit gone beyond caiths shadows. M. ROBERTS.
