pondent at Salem.
One of the greatest ambitions of
the present legislature is to put the
governor in a hole. It is an un
worthy ambition, and what is more
It is not likely to be successful.
A million dollars is quite an in
significant amount of money in the
eyes of the present legislature.
The senators nt Salem carried
out the wishes of the people by
compelling the railroads to Issue
passes to all the state officers in
stead of passing a bill making it
unlawful to issue passes to any one.
That is one way of carrying out
the will of the people.
The present speaker is compelled
to do more explaining than any
other man who has occupied the
chair. Ilttt his explanations do not
explain after all.
Large appropriations are demand
ed for additions to the asylum, the
existing buildings being overcrowd
ed. Instead of granting these
appropriations it would be much
more .sensible to nave the present
patients examined by a competent
committee in order to weed out
those who should be on their farms
at home and not in an insane asyl
um. Aud there are numbers of
that class there.
flic legislature has introduced a
bill to compel railroads to carry its
members wherever they wish to go
free of charge. Why not compel
barbers to shave them free of
charge? One would be as teason
able as the other.
A bill to increase the pay of
Mute ulhcials from si to finter

passed which allows the committee
to employ all the clerks they see fit.
riie attempt to alter ourprimary
law docs not tnecV with fnvor of
our junior senator, Hon. Jonathan
I Ion rue. In writing to a friend on
the subject he says: "I certainly
hope that no change whatever will
be made in the primary law. It is
in good smith: as it stands, aud any 1
alteration would probably impair
its usefulness, To my mind it is of
the utmost importance that the pri
mary law should be allowed to
stand without amendment, nt least
for the present,"
The woman suffrage committee
presented n resolution to the house
requesting that this question should
again be submitted to a vote of the
people at the next election. Mrs.
Duuiway contended that if the
legislature would do this, it would
save the suffrage society a few hun
dred dollars in the way of prepar
ing petitions themselves, but out of
courtesy to these misguided women
quite a number of anti-suffragists
voted for the resolution, and yet it
only passed by one vote the vote
of Frank Davcy, who is always
ready to turn with the unit. When
the same resolution came to the
senate, it was overwhelmingly de
feated, clearly showing bow the
country stands on female suffrage.
The fact is the voters are sick and
tired voting down this proxsitioii,
and if it ever comes up again it
will be snowed under by 35,000
votes, The result of its working
in the Mormon inhabited states of
Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Wyom
ing arc not such as to induce the
electors of Oregon to put their
necks in the noose.
After' he Told the Truth in His
A Missouri editor recently an
nounced that just for one issue he
would tell the truth. Here arc a
few items from that issue:
John Honin, the laziest mer
chant in town, made a trip to Ikllc-
joitn noyie, our groccryman,
is doing a poor business, His store
is dirty and dusty and notoriously
odoriferous. How can he expect
to do much ?
Rev. Styz preached Sunday night
on gossip. The sermon was punk.
If the reverend gentleman would
live up a little closer to what he
preaches he would have n larger
Dave bonkcy died last Sunday
at his home in this place. The
doctor gave it out as heart failure.
I lie fact is that he was drunk. His
home was a rented shack on Rowdy
street. He has gone whence no
rowdies return, and he has abun
Married, Miss Sylvia Rhodes nud
James Cauahau, last Saturday
evening, at the Ilaptist parsonage.
The bride is a very ordinary town
girl who does not know more than
a rabbit about cooking and never
helped her mother three days in
her life. She is not a beauty by
any means, aud has a gait like a
fat duck. The groom is well
known as an up-to-date loafer. He
has been living off the old folks all
his life aud doesn't amount to
shucks. They will have a hard
life while they live together and ,
the News has no congratulations to
offer, for we don't believe any good
can come from such a union.
It is needless to say that the issue
in wit ch the Missouri editor told
the truth was the last he ever made.

be Shorn of Its Trees and
Platted into Lots.
Last Monday a contract was let
to cut the timber off of Cedar Park,
and the intention is to plat it into
residence lots. The park consists
of ten acres of laud within the loop
in the .southeastern part of the city.
It is said to be owned by the Port
land General Hlectric Co. For
several years it has been opened
during the summer for picnics and
dances. The only improvements
consist of a tumble down pavilion
and a few crude benches and tables.
The entire tract is covered with
stately fir and cedar trees, aud one
of the handsomest parks could have
been made. The Review is unable
to learn any of the particulars.
