The recent election indicate several
things political. In the first place the
senate that for sometime has been in the
hands of the opposition will now be re
publican by 18 majority. This means
that the senate will be controlled by
this party for sometime to come. The
house still continues in the bands of
this party but by a much narrow
majority. The present indications are
that the majority will be thirteen.
Locally on tl.e coast it means that the
silver party is utterly dead. Wash ins
ton, Oregon and California have refused
to listen to the Warrior statesman
William Jennings J3ryan and here
after his "cross of gold" will hare to be
borne without help from this section.
In the East the silver question cut
very little figure in the recent elections.
It is only in the such great states like
Idaho, Montana, Colorado, and Utah
that the fundamental principles of the
double (?) standaJd are fully understood
or its benign blessings are fully appreci
ated and upheld at the ballot bos.
There was a decided tendency in the
East on the part of the democrats to pet
together, and many a democrat who
supported McKinley supported a con
gressman nominated on a silver platform
because they believe that free silver will
never obtain even with the democrats in
power any more than free trade has.
Tbey regard the question as practically
out of politics and are trying to get the
party together on other issues for 1900.
This resulted in cutting down the re
publican majority in the house. The
control of both houses of congress with
the election of Roosevelt and a republi
can legislature in New York can safely
be taken as an appiovel of the adminis
tration's war policy although Alger cost
many a vote and all mishaps are laid at
the door of the administration even if
unavoidable. As we have said before
silver is out of the question, will not
figure in 1900 with any party, but the
democrats will be far more united in
1900 than they were in 1896.
The democrats by leading the popu
lists astray on the fusion scheme have
completely extirhapted that party
nationally from politics.
The populists of this county and state
will have to choose between the demo
crat and republican parties. It is a well
devised scheme to try and deliver the
populists bodily to the democrats and
that is especially true in this county but
it will not work.
Ralph Platt commissary of the
Second Oregon Volunteers writing from
Manila to the Orej;onian ntates that the
trouble on ship board with the rations
was the absolute lack of facilities to bake
break or cook for the regiment. If the
transport had been furnished with these
facilities the food would have been as
good as on land except the refrigerator
was not equal to its task.
Lohd Sausiuhy's spwch at the lord
mayor's banquet in which ho said that
America must now bo taken into con
sideration in the affairs of tho world,
since she has taken up with a colonial
policy has created a groat stir through
Europe, and is intei prcted as meaning
an Anglo-American agreement as Salis
bury said that the entrance of America
into the diplomatic affairs of tho world
not be to the detriment of England.
Tin report of Uen. Miles shows that
much ot the sickness in camp arose from
the fact that tho government was not pre
pared to furnish the troops ptoperly and
a long detention in a camp hardly pro
vided with absolute necessities tended to
make the men homesick and bring on
melocholia under which circumstances
disease more readily planted itself as

Archbishop Gross was a man of great
executive ability and a fine scholar. At

personality and affable manner that to

Not only tho church, but tho Northwest

His place will not be easy to fill.
Tm letter in this issue from Captain
rickens ought to set at rest any fear that
may hare been raised by anxious friends
concerning the boys at Manila. It will
be seen that all possible care is being
taken and the resources properly looked
after rather than wasted, as some of tho
volunteers seem to think they should bo
It is certain that the administration is
going to push the settlement of peace
with Spain and no farther delays are to
be tole.-ated. The negotiations have
now reached the stage where it is a
question of the price to bo paid for the
islands and the method of taking posses
sion of them.!
The gloating manner of the assassin
Luigini shows that he mentally is a de
generate. No properly balanced mind
can exalt in so foul a murder as that of
the empress of Austria. At his trial be
was anxious that it should be known
that he premeditated the crime and de
signed that it should be fatal.
It has been suggested that Elyyille is
entitled to a councilman. We believe
they should be given one. This section
of the city has never had a representa
tive in the council and it is no more than
right that they should have a voice in
the city affairs.
Josepiii was elected senator in Mult

A Sure Sign of Croup.
Hoarseness in a child that is subject to
croup is a sure indication of the approach
of the disease. If Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is given as soon as the child be
comes hoarse, or even after the croupy
cough has appeared, it will prevent the
attack. Many mothers who havecronpy
children always keep this remedy at
band and find that it saves them much
trouble and worry, It can always be
depended upon and is pleasant to take.

From New Zealand.
Rekfton, New Zealand, Nov, 23, 1890.
I am very pleaeed to state that sincel
took the agency of Chamberlain medi
cines the sale has been very large, more
especially of the Cough Remedy. In
two years I have sold more of this par
ticufar remedy than of all other makes
for the previous five years. As to its
efficacy, I have been informed by scores
of persons of the good results they have
received from it, and know its value
from the use of it in my own household.
It is so pleasant to take that we have to
place the bottle beyond the reach of the
children. E. J. Sca.nti.ebuky.

Philosophy of this kind Is bused upon
gross ignorance. The fact Is, that thrre is
no necessity for the severe pangs under-
f:one by the average woman. If a woman
s strong and healthy in a womanly way,
motherhood means to her but little suffer
ing. The trouble lies In the fact that the
majority of women suffer from weakness
and disease of the distinctly feminine or
ganism and are unfitted for motherhood.
This can always be remedied. Dr. Pierce's
I'avorite Prescription Is a sure, speedy and
permanent cure for all disorders or this
description. It acts directly on the delicate
and important organs concerned, making
them healthy, strong, vigorous, virile sua
elastic. It banishes the iiidihpoitions of
the period of expectancy and makes baby's
adcent eaoy and ulinont painless. It quick
ens and vitalizes the feminine organs, and
insures a healthy and robtmt baby. Thou
sands of women have testified to its mar
velous merits. Honest druggists do not
offer substitutes and urge them upon you
as "just as good."
