For tlio llrt tlmo In many years lie visits Salem. He Is advertised to speak at the state fair. Tlio people of Oregon will not all go to see Ilnrvoy Scott out of excessive love for tlio man. Hund reds will go out of pure curiosity. Like his building ho Is supposed to bo fireproof. Tlio shaft that pierces his armor of indifference and contempt must bo exceedingly well aimed to elicit a reply. Ho never crlcs''pcccavl" but flounders terribly when a shot does go through his skin. generally demolishing tho fellow who flrcd it at the first blow. Every editor In Ore Bon has fought Harvey Scott In print, fie first thing anew editor docs up on arriving in Oregon Is to take a flyer at Scott. Ho sees a big shining mark and the thing is too tempting. Hecan't resist letting bang nthliu. The "amoosln little cuss" thinks IiIb opportunity has come, and ho Im proves It. He fires away ' at Scott. MOtt minds It about as much nsnn elephant would a fly. Scott never,' hu.hcS irom a big dally nearer than a thousand miles away. Tho small ones he Ignores entirely unless they suc cessfully stir him and it is clearly to n's interest to do so, to uphold some Peculiar view he advocates. To quote anybody who differed from him would nt be good Journalism. What are opinions for but to confirm his own 'e? All other opinions aro imbc Jll'c vaporlngs. Scott is a cross be tween a Puritan and a fishwife. In Shtlng for what ho holds right ho Is Wtea. and fanatical as, tho former abusive as tho latter.

A lover of power, he delights In using It. Ho scorns theology and scoffs at senti ment. If ever a warm Impulse was conceived In his bosom ho strangled It before It was born. He would make a good executioner. His only god is tho money power. He feeds day and night on plutocratic speculations. An Item about millionaires is his meat. Men worth only a few thousand ho has n poor opinion of. Ho never thinks about tho poor. The very poor he chews up and spits out. A man who writes or speaks contrary to his wish he condemns forever. Tho man nhodoes not fall in with his political views Is a fool to begin with, and un less he shows signs meet for repen tance at an early day, ho Is cast Into outer darkness forever. If a public man or an editor persists in views contrary to tho Oregon thundcrer he Is first shut out of Its columns and then tho oblivion of tho rest of tho world closes down on lilm forever. If you don't believe in tho single gold standard you uro a villain. If you think that congress or the legislature or government in general should do anything but legislate for corporations apd Wall street you are a socialist. It you think the government should be essentially and specifically helpful to the poorer classes, on tho theory that tho well-to-do are able to take caro of themselves, you are an au archlst. You are cither a fool, a socialist or an anarchist, or both or all three If you uphold any theory opposite to Scott. If you cannot be ridiculed off the earth you will be Jgnoredout of existence. Tho really bright men and women o' Oregon re main unknown until they leave Ore gon. Nearly all such who do go rise to distinction in an Incredible short time. Hundreds of men who would have been bright lights in tho history of. other states disappeared from view as completely as though lost In the mamotli cave of Kentucky when they entered Scott's literary domain. All around his castle this giant hasstrewn tho bones of public men who have been tho victims of his molar pro cessesridiculed off tho face of the earth by the great webfootcd fee-faw-fum. Ills glance withers. Ills patronngo blights. Ills praise damns. When Hnrvey Scott's Jaws sot on an Idea they never relax. Tho Idea raaychango or disappear but ho ad heres to It in tho original form In which ho assimilated In. In thirty days you can get all of Scott's opin ions. The Ferris wheel of his Intel lect has revolved. It simply rovolves again. Ring-machlno rule In politics suits Scott. It proves the depravity of tho race and tho Incapacity of tho people for self government. Ho has no Inter est In good government but to save money for tho rich. His champion ship of clean politics last spring was a temporary political abberratlon. His main object In llfo Is to prove that the people aro fools and tho fact that so many take his paper and read It demonstrates his assumption! Storm and Lightning. CLEVELAND.Aug. 0.
