Washington city's finances are

are levied and collected, but not
one cent can be spent without the

that the capital city of the nation

The last Republican convention

Chairman Ray of the judiciary
Committee is about to take the first
steps toward securing an amend
. ment to the constitution giving the
government power over marriage
and divorce. It is to be hoped that
he will succeed, though the road
will undoubtedly be long and
rocky. The divorce laws of many
states are a stench in the nostrils of
today. The postmaster who sells
postage stamps deals also, as a rule,
in dry goods and wet goods, in
hardware and soft ware, in glue and
groceries. The country store was
the prototype of the department
store. The only difference between
the two now is that the city depart
ment store ha a separate counter
for every separate class of goods,
while the country store-keeper, over
the same counter, sells his customer
anything, from a jug of molasses to
package of Tins. Where shall we
draw the line on tho department
stores? If we wipe out the big one
in the city, what will become of the
ittle one in the country?
To the Point.
Recent shipments of livestock
from Independence are: T. J. Fryer,
200 head of choice mutton sheep;
Gray, 200; Lee Brown, 500; W.
W. Percival, 1200; and also two
cars of fat tioirs. The hoes were
very choice, bringing the same price
as Eastern Oregon hogs. They
averaged about 300 lbs. live weight
for which the farmers were paid A
cents per pound. It mav bo a
revelation to the Willamette farmer
to learn that the Eastern Oregon
hog pells at a quarter to a half cent
per pound higher than the valley
ing. The explanation of this is
that the valley farmer persists in
selling his hogs half finished while
the Eastern Oregon farmer is never
ready to sel! until his hogs are well
fattened. And yet there are some
very choice hogs in shipment that
had not been fed on wheat. They
were raised on a rotation of crops
and finished on corn, which leaves
the grower a nice margin.
As it saves the t xpense of har
vesting the grain there certainly
should be more stock raised in the
Willamette valley. They are bring-
ng long prices and we surely can
compete with favored localities
with our mild and even climate.
Still mutton sheep and hogs are
selling as high here as in Chicago,
where the farmers of the eastern
states market their stock. They
have to prepare for long cold win
ters, not like our valley farmers
who never expect to have to feed,
or if so there are rare occasions.
More , livestock and less wheat
should be the motto of the Willam
ette valley farmer. Rambler.

Tho Senate did not take up the
Nicaragua Canal bill today, in ao
cordanco with the resolution adoj
ieu ai mo last session, because,
with the vote of tho many friends
of tho Canal hill, tho Ship Subsidy
bill was hist week made tho regular
order of tho Sunn to. The friends o;
the Canal bill will wait until the
Hay-Pauncefote treaty is acted
upon before pushing that measure.
They say that they have the votes
pledged t) pass it whenever they
get ready, and that there is no neei
to runh it now.

There has not been tho slightest
wrangle on tho floor of either Sen
atoor House, although iho latter
debated and pushed the AiliiiiiUni

providing for a regular army of
from 58,000 to 100, 000. men, in the
President's diHcretion, which under
ordinary circumstances might have
been expected to Jiava- aroused thj
minority. Doubtless tho failure of
tho minority caucus to agree ujRn
a party policy had something to do
with the calmness of the debate.
Congress is likely to find itself
volvod in a financial disoiiHiiion
shortly, in connection with an ad
ministration bill providing a sys
tem of coinage for tho Philippines,
where the Mexican dollar, commer
cial value, 50 centH, is the jxijmlar
unit of value, under U. S. control,
as ii was under Spuuish control.
No bill has yet been introduced in
Congress on tho subject, but from
talk at a Cabinet meeting, one is
ikely to bo that will provide for
the purchase of silver bullion to be
coined into pesos, or Phillinine
lollars, each to contain alw'ut fifty
cents worth of silver, or a little loss
than our standard silver dollar.

money in heing freely imed in tho
interest of one of tho candidates in
the coming senatorial election.
That large wealth is interested there
can he no question. If men having
reputations as boodlera oro intonat
ing themselves in thosueceHs of any
wealthy aspirant for Hint high oflico
let their comings and goings he
closely watched by all honorable
men. Should they ho seen inter

let imiuiry bo mado as to their bus

corruption will not bo tolerated.
Oregon needs a representative in
tho senate who can accomplish
something for the slate, and who
has some interest in affairs aside
from "personal vindication" or re
venge on political enemies. The
stato of Oregon has nothing to do
with private (lilliculties, and no
man has tho right even to ask the
legislature to help remove tho blot
ches from his moral cscutoheon..
It is work Oregon needs and' not a
social light in the giddy whirl of
tho fashionable set at tho Nation's
Capital. Wealthy entertainers can
but political connections, provided
they spend money enough. Oro
gon is not in need of social distinc
tion. She wants a senator who
already has, and who can secure,
committee assignments where sub
stantial benefits can be secured in
the way of appropi iatins and favor
able legislation. Lot it ho soon to
that the right man is , selected.
Money does not make the man any
more than does tne coat.

ing poor people, Judge Sears set
aside the bond, mortgage, contract
and several other documents with
which a poor man's home was plas
