The variation in prices for cattle showt
a wonderful difference, owing to quality.

at any price, within a dollar ot this. A
considerable number, however, sell at
from 4.50 to f A much larger num
ber, not counting inferior slock, tell at
from 3.23 to 14. Oue fact will never b
aatisfactorily explained to feeders, and
that is why good cows and heifers should
sell at mocb lower prices than do steers
f similar quality. At present f1.50 is
bizh price for a ccw or a heifer of
teallv good quality. Calve sell at lower
prke than good fat rattle. Many in
fcrior cattle are being forwarded now,
did selling as low as $1 per 100 pounds.
Tbe quotations of price for "cannert'
do not inspire one with a great desire to
at canned beef.
Th variation in price for bog is
snach lets than that for rattle. Exclud

at report at hand is TO cents per 100

Th republicans in congress have noli
thus candidate who were defeated for a
seat in that body, and who are desirous
of contesting the election ot their oppon
ents, that they must rely upon th just
ness ot their individual causes, and not
upon th overwhelming republican
majority. Thla is perfectly right and
proper. It is a pity that Mr. Kate, th
lat republican candidate for governor ot
California, did not gang his conduct by
that same rule. Had b don so he
would not hav inaugurated a contest
with bis successful opponent. Mr.Ete
may get th office, but If ha doe It will
be because be has th might instead ot
the right on bis side. Th election went
overwhelmingly republican throughout
the state, with th exception ol Mr.
F.ste, and that b was not carried along
with tb tide was hi own fault. A gen
eral suspicion that Mr. Kste was en
tirely too friendly to th Southern Pa
cific was what left Mr. Est in the
shade; that it was and not fraud as he
would now bare th public believe.

There is every indication of a large
migration from 5ebraka, the Dakota
and Kansa this winter and next spring
and Tit doubt a considerable portion of
tha home-seeker will turn their beads
ward Oregon and Washington. That
lb people wbo will leav ar generally
poverty stricken is said to be true. This
"m ao crime and an immigration of people
wbo are poor through failure of crops,
instead of through sbiftleetne I by no
aaeans an onmixed evil. Wasco county

before either leaving th borne they

We are grow iDg in population steadily,
and that growth is a healthy growth.
Jy all means let .t continue at that.
Kvery winter tha charitably disposed
people, and the charitable societies here
are taxed severely to support a lot of
aww-comer wbo are beiple and shift

afar bo are unfortunate, where tick- j
awor accident hav brought an extra

A dispatch of tb 8th tart :
lh textot tb Connecticut supreme
court's opinion ordering a re-trial ol Ir.
J. K. Le, after acquittal by a jury fur
murder, lb first record of the kind ia
tb state, is given oat today. It main
argument ltli point that th old F.ng
lisb common law was so cruel that judge
then wisely held that aa accused person
altera jury acquittal, could not b put
in jeopardy a second tiro for tb taut
offense; but now that th old law has
been relaxed, tha criminal ought not to
benefit by former practice, and justice
be thwarted by error of judicial ruling.
Tha court of five jo-lues was unani
mous In the opinion. Th opinion was
written by Jodg Hammersley.
It doe not seem possslbl that th
above dispatch can be true. If so the
sooner those judge can b superseded
by other with mora common tense,
and lest legal learning, lb better tor
th peopi of th state. One that gate
It opened there would b no end to liti
gation, no tafety to individuals, and In a
short time no regard for th law. A
man one arrested for a crime could m
kept at tbe pleasure of the judge whom
ba it brougnt before, ami though ac
quitted, could ba re-tried until Anally a
jury might b found to convict him.
Lawyers would rvel in fees, and coun
ties would li tnamped with court ex
penses. The Orecoman is somewbat mistaken
in regard to Klein and Savage, and th
powers and authority of th United
Mutes eonrts. Ravage and Klein ar
both ia tb power of th state, ol Oregon,
and with all due di-terence to I'ncle
Bam, the whole United btate it not big
noiigh to take tbem out of it. The
stat having taken possession of then
peopl for tha purpose of trying them
for an offens against ber laws, is su
preme. When tba stat of Oregon is
through with thsm tha United tates
court can meet them at th penitentiary
doort, and do what tbey pleas with
them but not before.
