ME ELECTIONS OF 1SW.
During tlie coming yonr tlilrtj
one states hold election nt which
conpressmen we to be elected
In twenty of those states the
lecislatur must elect ft now wnii
tor to take his Beat Mnrcli 4, 189.1.
The senate of the Uuited States
now coutaius forty-four democrats,
thirty-eight republicans, three pop
ulists and three seats vacant.
These twenty states may through
their legislatures greatly change
the United Stat. senate.
The House of Kepreeutatives
has 219 democrats, 127 republicans
aud 10 populists, a total of 356. It
takes 179 votes to make a majority
for any party. In order that our
readers may do some figuring for
themselves we herewith give the
names of the thirty-one states bold
. inir elections this year and the pol
itics of their congressmen uow in

In order that the house of repre
sentatives may have a republican
majority there must be elected out
of the 200 congressmen 100 repub
licans. Whether such sluill lie the
case depends entiiely npon wheth
er the people in these stales are
satisfied with the present adminis
tration. The West Side would
like to have the views of its read
ers on the'probable change of con
gressmen, if any, in the states
named above and the total accord
ing to their estimate.
Elections for a senator will also
be held in the following stutes at
the meeting of the states' legisla
tures: Kansas, Kentucky, Aiifmis
sippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, North
Carolina and Virginia. Making a
total of twenty-seven senators to
take their seats in March 18!)5. Of
the seven states last mentioned,
Kansas is probably populist, Ken
tucky dcra., Mississippi dem., Ne
brawka rep., New Jcroey dem.,
North Caroliua dem. and Virginia
An endless array of figures is
presented by some of our contem
poraries to show that the Wkst
Bide is wrong in saying present
ownership maps are wrong in prin
ciple, and that they cost too much
for their benefits. Maps for the
use of assessors are one thing, and
preaent ownership maps another.
Do not condemn the West Side in
. this matter tco hastily. , We shall
have omeHiing to say later in de
fense. Taxation is a very im
portant question and it will not do
to nider it too hastily.
Congressman Linger Herman hns
dome out squarely as a candidate
for congress in the first congress
ional district. Ho is no longer a
candidate for governor of Oiegon.
The Wkbt Side does not waut to
bo understood rs opposing any
necessary expenditure of our city,
nor does it want to critlouo our
city fathers tn the discharge of
their duties. We iwogniite the
fact that our stand ou Una matter
of hooks, and other expenses, has
brought upon us the euinity of sev
eral officials of Independence, and
goodness knows we seek no more
enemies than we already have, but
we cannot loci that iu calling atten
tion to these facts wo have done
more than our duty.
We are in receipt of the Oregou
EwitgiliM of Lafayette, a neat six-tccn-coluuin
