WEUU A POPULIST. Ex State Treasurer George Webb o' Union county has oomo out for the PopullstB He asks how can the Dem ocrats of Oregon square their platform so as to hurmonize that structure with the position of the Cleveland admlnls tratlon on the Chinese, silver and tarlfl questions? Not having been re-elected state treasurer and holding no office uuder Cleveland Mr. Webb lies awake nights worrying about the Democratic state platform. Union county Is such a stronghold of Republicanism that there Is absolutely no hopo for any Democrat ever to come to tho stnto cap Itolirorn there unlcw lu charge of tho sheriff, No one will besurprisedtosoo Uncle George take tho only other pos sible means of getting hero at public expense as a Populist legislator. But the reasons he assigns fur becom ing a Populist are not good. What evidence Is there that the Populist party is nearer right lu Its theories about sil ver, Chlneso and the tarlfl, than Cleve land? It has never been tried. IU platform Is vague and nebulou on all three of these propositions Cleve land position Is clear and strong.liow ever mistaken. He Is firm, llit-fnolwl ..n,i rvwiiive. The Poriiillsls lave no backbone In their platform on any u ) lei!t excent calaiiiity.Tlielr organlKttloii U full of tho dynamite that, destroys coofldonco, upsets business, and solves nothing. Probably all there is iu Webb' flop Is a desire to get Into the next legislature aud help Ponnoyer to becine the Popul st United States sen ator. The calamity party has a rich field to operate in soiim of tho more distressed parts of Ksster i Oregon, But It will hardly be found to be lu Union county. A WMl) C0.NVK.Sri0X.
