THE FALL ELECT10XS.
In the six states in which there
are to be elections for governor the
campaigns are well under way. These
states are Massachusetts, Iowa, Mis
sissippi, Maryland, Kentucky and
Ohio. It is safe to say that Massa
chusetts and Iowa will go Republican
and that Mississippi will go Demo
cratic, says the Spokesraan-Ueview.
Maryland Las ordinarily been Demo
cratic, but at the last election went
Republican, and members of that
party have claimed that such It
would remain. But there seems to
be nothing very substantial on which
to base this confidence. The Demo
crats are well organized, under the
leadership of Gorman, a significant
local victory has been won in Balti
more, and the reeent dissensions in
the Ropublicin ranks growing out of
a conflict between Senator Welling
ton and Governor Lowndes are like
ly to make the chances of Democratic
success all the uioie certain.
Kentucky is nominally Democratic,
but its present governor is a Repub
lican, and a part of its electoral vote
was for McKinley. Moreover, there
is a boiling Democratic ticket which
gives the Republicans reason to feel
encouraged. The regular Democrats
are waging a vigorous campaign,
however, and in spite of Independent
Democratic secession it is not im
probable that Goebel will be elected
by a safe rnnjoritj'.
In Ohio the campaign has just
opened, and it will be an extremely
Active one for both parties. It is
believed that the usual Republican
majority will be cut down, but it isj
doubtful if enough of a change can
be effected to insure the election of
McLean. Ohio is the president's
state, and with all the influence that
the administration cau exert in favor
of Nash there is a fair probability of
the bitter winning by a small ma
jority. AH of these elections will be full of
interest, for the stute campaigns arc
being waged largely on national
issues, and from the results it may be
possible to make predictions as to
the greater conlesl of next year.
ing June 30, J 890, the newcomers
numbered 5,246,013, while the ag
gregate for the last decado will not
be three fourths of that total. Some
mouths ago an estimate based on the
estimates of the governors of the
several states placed the population
of the country at 77,803.231, which
Is probably not very far from cor
.V TERXA TIOSA L VI SI TS.
POPULATION IX 1900.
Ia 1890 the United Slates census
returned C2,C22,2jO people. Calcu
lations as to the population next year
range from 74.000,000 to 80.000,000.
The Spokesman-Review sas: In
this connection it is interesting to
recall the remarkable predictions
made in the early part of the century
by the noted agriculturist and math
ematician, Elkanah Watson. By
careful attention to the science of
general averages, Mr. Watson com
puted the population of the country
for successive decades for nearly a
century ahead with an accuracy that
is almost astounding. His calcula
tions were within 1 per cent of what
the actual count proved to be for
five succeeding decades. Only in
I860 was his prediction more than
100,000 out of the wajr, end his cal
culations had been made before
After the civil war Watson's
figures began to varj from the actual
enumeration. He predicted 70,000,
000 for 1890 and 100,235,985 for
1900, which is probably from 20 to
25 per cent more than the census
count will show. Possibly if the
war had not occurred his estimates
might have been verified, for that
conflict, with the killing of thousands
of men, 8ustens:on of family life,
and the falling off vf immigration
conspired to decrease the annual er
centage of growth from 2$ to 3
The growth for 1890 to 1900 will
not be so remarkable as it was for
the previous decade, for there was
no general financial depression be
tween 1880 and 1890, and the num.
bcr of immigrants coming to America
in the early 80s was the largest ever
recorded. During the ten years end.
The frequency with which princes
and presidents in these days become
the guests of other potentates or
peoples marks one of the advances
which have been in the amenities of
civilization In the modern age, says
the Globe-Democrat. There was
surprise for a time in the gay world
of Europe when Charles V. of Ger
many visited Henry VIII. of Eng
land, and when Henry immediately
afterward called on Francis I., the
French king. So many exchanges
of courtesies between monarchs in
the sme length of time were so un
usual in that day that they were
incomprehensible to the subjects of
these sovereigns. The reasons, how
ever, soon became plain. Charles,
who was king of Spain before be
became emperor of Germany, and
Francis had been rivals for the
German crown, and were hostile to
each other nearly all the days of
their reign. Each sought the aid of
Henry in his wars against the other.
But the visits of potentates to
other countries in this age are not
only far more frequent than in the
older days, but generally they have
a more creditable purpose than usual
ly incited the earlier conferences of
sovereigns. Nobody couples the
visit of President Diaz, of Mexico,
to the United States with such
projects as usually prompted the
international journeyings of the
earlier heads of l.ations. A possible
scheme to secure an elliance between
the two countries as against some
other nation or rations will be as
far from the thoughts of the presi
dents of Mexico and of the United
States when they meet as would the
preparation of another such a spec
tacle ns the Field of the Cloth ot
Gold which trie French king got up
for the delectation of his British
royal guest. The visit of Mexico's
president is purely a call of friend
ship, and an evidence of the esteem
which his countrymen and himself
hold for the government and the
people of the United States.
Nor are these international ex
changes of civilities confined to the
heads of the states of the American
continent. William II. of Germany, j
in his reign of eleven years, has
tired young woman and a boyish-
looking lieutenant, with his way to
make in the woild, stood up before a
few friends and answered "Yes" to
the simple, direct question "for bet
ter or worse, as loug as ye both shall
live," and departed, husband and
wife, to begin the struggles incident
to founding a home and bringing up
a family by their own unaided ex
ertion. This last wedding doubtless
awakened responses from grand
motherly pride, while the fond dopes
with which the widow of a happy
marriage follows a newly married
couple will go with these ycung
people across the sea; but the other
marriage ceremony, sacred in its
simplicity, must appeal to the heart
of the American woman as all
sufficient in its power to initiate the
happiness of a lifetime and crown
country and posterity with honor.

Patriotism is not waning In The Dalles
and the regard which our people have
for their soldier boys, as well as the in
terest taken in their heroic deeds in our
behalf, was evidenced last night when,
in spite of the many counter attractions,
such a large crowd gathered at the Con
gregational church to hear Earl Sanders
speak on the recent campaign In the
Philippines and the experiences of the
Oregon boys. As a general thing it is
Imposbible to get even a moderate sized
crowd to attend a lecture in The Dalles,
but last mgbt was an exception.
The people were met at the door by
James Elton, Harry Fredden, Fred Ken

former members of Company L. ' The
boys were attired in their Khake uni
forms, and acted as door keepers and
ushers, also explaining to the audience
the curios which were displayed daring
the evening. There were abo a num
ber of "our boys" In the audience.
Earl was also atlired in his uniform
and presented a soldierly appearance as
he took the rostrum and was greeted by
hearty applause. All had been anxious
to hear the story of the war from the
lips of one of our own boys, and it was a
pleasure to listen to the speaker, who
possesses elocutionary ability which
added much to its nndition. Begin

any other manner, but leaving out the
political side of the Philippine qnestion
entirely, which no one expected or
cared to have discussed at such a time.

MORE ABOUT THE TRAGEDY.
Verdict or the Coroner' Jury In the
A telephono message received by the
Ciiromclk from Moro this afternoon
gave further particulars regarding the
dreadful tragedy which occurred Monday
evening, thd coroner having just re
turned from holding the inquest at
Harris' place on Des Chutes, the scene
of the occurrence.
It seem that Guyton and his family
were camped on the east bank of the
Des Chutes, near the site of the new
mill, and were putting up berries for
winter use. Monday morning Mrs.
Guj ton became angry at ber husband's
little girl (his daughter by his first wife)
and began beating her about the head.
The father interferred and took the child
to llarru' house, near by, telling his
wife that he could not stand such treat
ment of her and if it was nit etopped
they must separate.
About three quarters of an hour after
ward the Harris children heard I creams
from children in the direction of the
river, but by the time they got down to
the stream, nothing could be seen. Dis
covering their abtence from camp, the
river was searched and as it was very
shallow there, the bodies were soon
found. She must have thrown the
4-year-old boy Into the stream first, aud
then tied the 20-months-old babe in her
arms and jumped in, for the boy was
found twenty-five yards further down
the river and the babe was lied to her

mother's hand, after which she took her
