" The chief interest in the stale and munic
ipal elections held on Tuesday last in many
of the Eastern slates and cities centered in
the Ohio state election and the Greater
Kew York city election. In Ohio the dem
ocrats and populists exerted themselves to
their utmost to gain control of the legisla
ture so as to insure the defeat of Senator
Hanna for re election and put a democrat
in tbe senate from Ohio. Prior to tne cam
yaign strikes were incited and every effort
made to turn the laboring classes from the
republican to the democrat-populist party
and when the campaign did 0en Bryan
and all tbe leading pulist orators were
Bent to that state and a most determined
contest was inaugurated with the result
that the republicans have barely carried
the stale and have tbe legislature by a ma
jority sufficient to insure the election of
a republican United Slates senator.
Tammany carried New York City, elect
Ins the entire boodle ticket. As now con
stituted under its new charter Greater New
York will carry on its payroll an average of
35,000 employes all tbe year round and tbe
city expenditures will exceed J.O00,0tO
a year. With such an immense prize as
this at stake in tbe way of boodle to be had,
the followers of the Tammany tiger left no
means untried to carry the election and in
sure to their coffers the fpoils to be bad.
Massachusetts and Pennsylvania each
went republican by good majorities wbile
the populists ran so far behind in Kansas as
to make It possible that the republicans
have carried the s'.ate ticket, it being so
close that it will lake tbe official count to
decide. The free silver ticket in Colorado
did not show the strength it ossessed in
Ibe presidential election last year, and it
will require the official count to decide
whether the tree silver or republican ticket
is loccessful. The fusionists carried
Nebraska by a small majority wbile New
Jersey went strongly republican.
Stray rumors keep coming up from time
to time that the governor is to call a spe
cial session of tbe legislature. Ho far Gov
ernor Lord has shown no disposition to call
the legislature together, doubtless feeling
that the need was not urgent enough to
justify tbe expense it would bring on the
taxpayers or the stale. Since the decision
ol tbe supreme court w as rendered allowing
the secretary of stale to audit all salary and
other accounts against the state regularly
provided for by law, there is no special
need for appropriations to be made for
these bills are now paid as fast as presented.
The only persons really desirous for a spe
cial session are the populists, who would
Jike a chance to reticent their record before
the next election lakes place for they fear
tbat their connection wilb the late hold-up
will be tbe means of bringing defeat upon
their party at the next election.
'Okeooh newspapers are feeling the im
pulse of good limes as w ell as tbe farmers
and other classes. Tbe Salem Statesman
wiU with next Sunday enlarge its Sunday
.edition from eight to twelve pages, while
the Capital Journal of that city, commenc
ing with last Monday, enlarged its daily
edition from a seven to an eight column
folio. Tbe Portland Mercury conies out
with a new editor and the announcement
thai it will print no more naughty things.
The Welcome of that city has put on a new
dress and looks as prosperous as a Kentucky
horse jockey. In tact every newspaper in
Oregon is giving evidence of more prosper
ous days, tbe "calamity howlers" alone
being the exception, they being too deeply
engrossed in hunting for something to com
plain of to make an efio-t to build up their
Coktbary to Hie predictions of the Ore
gouian, the president has made all the ap
pointments recommended by the Oregon
Congressional delegation. The commissions
of Colonel Owen Sui.imers for appraiser in
tbe Portland custom house, John Hall for
United States district attorney and Zoeth
Houser for United States marshal were
made out and so soon as their bonds are
approved these men will assume the du
ties of their respective offices.
8 PI KIT OF THE mm.
Of the shortage In the potato crop in the
United States and of the prospect for good
prices here in Oregon, the Northwest
Pacific Fanner lias tbe following to say:
"It is fMimntpil llml the nhortn In pota
tors in the Vnlteil utatrs for thm year will
be about I7.VW0.0W bimlieln, to ay nolliiii(t
of Hie shortage, in Canada ami all oilier
roniitrlra except probably Herman. TIiIk
has certainly been an oil potato year for
every section except the l'aclllo coat
which Is now prepared lo furnish ninny of
its neighbors in exchange for either free
silver or gold."
The populist's denunciation of those who
gain wealth rapidly and Mr. Bryan's ellorts
in this line do not exactly harmonise, as
the following from the Sioux Kalis Argus
Iader indicates: "Let's see. It is on of
the fundamental doctrines of the pluto
haiing pops that no man ran rightlv earn
11,000,000 in a lifetime. Yel, for making
one speech at the state fair of Kansas Mr.
Bryan the oilier day received a check for
f.WX). Now, earning I'.WO per dav it
would require sixteen months to earns
million. What are we to conclude? Either
the pop doctrine referred lo is utterly
wrong, or Mr. Bryan has joined tbe wicked
plutes and is illegitimately filching wealth
from the pockets of the toiling masses."
No slate in the Union bas a harder work
ing supreme court than has Oregon and in
no state is there a greater volume of business
passed upon by a court of only three men
than is transacted eacb year by the Oregon
supreme court. The following words of
commendation for our supreme court are
from the Portland Welcome: "The Oregon
supreme court made an a.-tonishiug record
this week. It banded down opinions in rive
important cases, and all of them were affirm
ations of the decisions and verdicts in the
lower courts. And what is an additional
satisfaction the decisions in each case were
such as lo a sensible, observant layman
seem in accordance with justice and equity.
Therefore both the supreme court and the
lower courts in which the cases were tried
are proper objects ol congratulation.
Illinois has a compulsory education law
which is not a dead letter, as is the Oregon
law. At one lime the Illinois law was also
a failure, but a change in truant otllcers,
the I nterOcean states, made It one of the
best enforced laws in Chicago as the follow
ing indicates: "Messrs. Gallagher and
Keating, by the grace of Harrison, Junior,
member of the board of education, are
pained to learn that fifteen women are
acting as truant officers for and in this city
of Chicago. There are sixteen such officers.
And there was a time when all, or nearly
all, of them w ere of the kind of men w hom
Messrs. Gallaher and Keating seak of as
"the boys." Their work was not satisfac
tory. They were, with hardly an exception
politicians of the lower grade; consequently
when another low grade man was sending
his 12 year-old boy or girl lo work, instead
of to school, or was permitting it the
dangerous luxuries of idleness and Igno
rance, he reported It as "sick" to the
political truant otllcers, and all went well.
It has been found that women are more
faiibfulul as house to house visitors, more
impartial in the discharge of their duties,
less liable to be imposed upon by the
specious representations of fathers of fam
lies, and more able to gain tbe confidence
of mothers, and tor these reasons are much
more effective agents of the board of
Of the new industries that are being de
veloped on Ibis Coast none are proving
more successful than cranberry culture
and the lime is not distant when our
market will be entirely supplied witb the
homegrown berries. The largest cran
berry marshes are located near Ilwaco and
of their yield the Ilwaco Tribune bas the
following to say: "The gathering of the
cranberry crop at the Cbabot marsh near
Ilwaco was concluded last week, and the
product will be over lOCO bnshe's; last year
it was (00 bushels. About forty Chinamen
were engaged as pickers this year, and
about one hundred white Deot.le. men.
women, boys and girls. At 50 cents a i
bushel these pickers just earned flOCO.
The New berg Graphic makes the follow
ing observation upon the despicable conduct
of an Oregon City newpater whose little
ness makes ef itself the laughing stock of
the tow n : To a disinterestrd reader it looks
like it was a bit of Jealousy on tbe part of
the Oregon City Press that causes that pa
per to continue its uncalled for flings at the
Enterprise, while Mr. Meserve of the latter
named sheet goes on about his business
from week to week, getting out by far the
best paiierin Clackamas county.
One of the new industries that is being
developed ol late by our farmers is that of
lifting mortgages. The Pendleton Tribune
bas the lollowing to say as to what is being
done in this line in Umatilla county:
Seventy-five thousand dollars wort1, of
mortgages cancelled In Umatilla county last
month. This beats the business in this line
for the month of September, IK!, more
than sixty thousand dollars. At this rate
there will not he an old mortgage left in
the county bv Christmas."
Mark Twain In Ills Old Manner.
An article by Mark Twain written in
the style of 'fThe Innocents Abroad"
and illustrated by A. B. Front and Peter
Newell, is a promise that magazine
leaders do not have held out to them
every day. It is in the November num
ber of MeClure's Magazine that this rare
feast of humor is to be served. One
might expect much more than ordinitry
entertainment from any one of the three
items of pictures by Froet, pictures by
Newell, and an "Innocents Abroad"
article by Mark Twain ; but the editors
of McClures, in their profusion ,!engage to
serve all three at once. The Mark Twain
article will consist of chapters from the
forth coining book on his recent journey
around tne world, and is the only part
that will be published in advance of the
book itself. It follows, those that have
read it say, the earlier Mark Twain man
ner, which is undoubtedly the most pop
ular: on a thread travel are strung no
end of wiee and witty reflections, quaint
and quizzical observations, comic adven
tures, and plausible impossible tales.
