lie is the editor of Oregon. 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. He may
! w,Ul aBe, but some now living
1 be dead before they realize it.

principles and despises the other tenth
for special rontons, lie is the most
heartily hated man In the northwest,
and no McKlnlcy bill Is required to
establish reciprocity on his part. 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
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!

"I take my stand with tho friends
of silver, and heartily endorse the

blmctalllst8 at Tacoma, June 30, and
as a necessary sequenco I shall sup
port Bryan for president. Tho money
question Is tho paramount Issuo of tho
campaign. All others can bo held In
abeyance. I believe that the growth
of gold monometallism Is the chlof

bo persisted In, tho result will bo
general bankruptcy and ruin. It will
