JACKSON COUNTY. The Medford Monitor says: Or those counties whlcHJiuve as yet held no conventions,, (cYcrnl. which have been considered sure for Hermann, show signs of getting Into line as untl-llerninnn. Here lu Jackson county anti-Hermann delegates will doubtless bo elected. Down in Linn county, Albany, tho convention city, sends 43 antl-IIurniaun delegates to the county convention. In Luno county, so far, no Hermann delegates have been elected, and It Is not likely any will bo. State Printer Leeds' Ashland Tid ings has the following summary of the Jackson county primaries: There is no kind of doubt that tho support ers of Senator Mitchell and Congress man Hermann arc In a majority here, and that the eighteen delegates elected properly represent such major ity. There was no contest between Mitchell and antl-Mltchell, or Her mann and anti-Hermann men, though an eirort was made to show such con test. Tho ticket elected was headed plainly "Republican Delegates," while tho defeated ticket was headed "Mitchell and Hermann Delegates." The latter was doubtless held to bo a scheme, and so defeated; tho former less pretensions of label, was found to represent the views of tho people with no device to catch votes at the expense of credulity. Cheap catch penny schemes without organization ormothod and dopondlng wholly on cheek and ornamented breath, with popullstlc attachment, will not In these days of universal reading and Investigation succeed except In largo cities where Ignoranco and a lack of patriotism ; prevails and where tho emoluments or olllcc Justify tho cor ruption there practiced. Ashland, though not cosmopolitan In many re spects, has an intelligence and an In spiration which reaches beyond tho methods of large cities for healthier and higher results. IN LINN COUNTY. Tho Albany Democrat (Dcm) has this editorial squib, which Republi cans must read with due allowance, "The congressional light In tho Re publican ranks, has centered down to Dinger Hermann and Til Ford. Roth are free silver men, thus Increasing tho Interest In tho struggle. Tho Democrat continues to predict Mint Hermann will bo nominated. Though over three thousand miles away ho Is doing some aggressive electioneering, or wire pulling, whatever you wish to call It, that is proving effcctlvo at a time when tho chances of most men In tho same box would go to pieces." HERMANN MEN DEFIANT. It seems the old ring uudcrPortland dictation packed the Albany primaries. Followln "sassy" card Is published: Tho Albany republican primaries were carried In this city on Saturday last "by ways that nro dark and tricks that are vain." Hermann republi cans were roughly handled, most of them on the tickets in different wards were beaten, and others were notified that they could take no hand In tho republlcn county convention or republican district convention! A reign of corruption was inaugu rated by tho bosses.tho anti-Hermann marplots and tho McFernon-Necdham combination joining hands to carry the primaries, else MieMcFcrou-Need-ham combination would have been beaten two to one! Now this nrtlcJeserycs notice on the antl- Hermann, McFeron-Ncedham combination, that no man this year In Linn county can ride Into tho olllce en tho backs of Hermann Republicans! This nice little game has been sprung by men who do not -hold a single winning card. If Hermann Republicans are pro scribed, rerused their share or reprc- sentatlonat the Republican district convention that convenes In this city on April 7, look out Tor snakes! After the June election there won't bo enough left of the McFeron-Necdham combination to make a decent sized funeral procession. Clubs are trumps this year and Its a square dice or a free light to a finish! Stand tip and act like men or take your medicine! Many Hermann Rbpuhucans. PRESS COMMl NT.

Tho Republican prlmurlcs will bo held In Multnomah county Thursday under the Simon primary law. It will bo the most oxcltlng political event In the history of tho state, of a purely preliminary character. Republicans are going to Portland from trail i over tho state, In order to witness tho contest between the county chairman, Senator Jo. Simon, mid his former associates. It Is predicted a great deal of money will be spent by both sides, and thero Is some prospect or rioting. Chairman Simon's bosstsm Is offen sive to tho better elements or tho party, and popular boutlineut Is largely against him. Rut ho has control or tho election olllcors and can let vote whoever ho pleases. Under tho Simon primary law his judges need not preserve tho ballots, and can certify any result they please and It will be final. If Simon abuses his power under that law, which was never enacted for a general election, It will result In his overthrow and the repeal of his law. If Micro Is an honcstcount Simon will bo defeated two to ono In Portland. Scvc e Storm.

Among the passengers on tho steamer Yucatan, which has Just arrived here, was Al bert Rapploye, tho nowspapor corres pondent, who, arter a threo months' stay In Cuba, was banished rrom the Island by a decreo or Captain-General Woyler. Mr. Rapploye In an Inter view said: "1 unhesitatingly state that with in threo months tho Insurgent causo In Cuba will bo triumphant If tho United States government will grant belligerent rights and glvo to tho Cubans anything resembling a light ing opportunity. Tho Spaniards aro now on tho defensive. Every battlo fought In Cuba In tho last threo days has been Invited by tho rebels. "The Cubans now practically hold tho Island or Cuba. Tho troops or Spain have been, as they aro now, on the dorenslvc. When General Maceo started on his western campaign one third or his men, 10,000 In number, wcro unarmed. Ills rorces havo en gaged battlo with but threo cartrlges each, dopcndlng entirely on tho cap ture of tho enemy's train for ammu nition to continue tho light. These men fight llko tigers, and with tho supply of arms and ammunition hu)- piled by the Bermuda, they are again marching towards Havana. If the Cubans had enough arms they could put 100,000 men In tho field. The Insurgent troops are well of fleered, and as perfectly organized as Spanish. The Cubans havo been so near Havana that tho burning plan tations could bo seen from tho house tops, and the Cubans havo captured places only a few miles from tho cap ital. Mora tiau this tho Cubans con trol all tho products of tho island. Thousands In Havana aro suffering for food, as they ure In all tho seaports, but they aro heart and soul with tho Cubans and aro willing to suffer.

Tho fooling In Eastern Oregon on tho subject can bo gathered from a letter received by Hon. John Mlnto from J. N. Williamson of Prlnovllle, secretary of "The Stockmen's Pro tective Union."
