Washington, Jan. 0. The anti civil
service reformers scored a victory in the
house today. The executive, legislative
and judicial appropriation bill was taken
up for consideration, and then, when
the appropriation for the civil service
commission was reached, Evans made
a motion to strike it out. This motion
has been made annually for a doaen
years or more, but invariably failed,
But today the opponents of the law laid
great stress on the fact that they could
not get a decisive vote upon the proposi
tion, and were therefor compelled to
seek Ha nullification in this manner.
Even these appeals failed io bring out
the full strength of the opposition,
though tbe motion to strike out carried
by a narrow margin, 07 to 61. This was
in committee of the whole where no
record was made of the vote. Moody
gave notice that he would demand a rec
ord vote in the honse, where the friends
of the civil service law expect to reverse

Bai.sk, Jan. 5 The state tax levy fo:

mills for 1833. This decision was
reached by the governor, secretary of
state and state treasurer at a meeting
beld today, when, they Inspected the
euinmarle of assessment rolls of all tbe
counties in the state, which they ob
tained at the eecretsry of state's office.
The amount expected to be raised baa
not yet been made poblic.
The Increase In this year's levy oyer
that of last lear is due to unexpected
items in the general appropriation bill
passed at the social session of tbe legis
lature, Including Ml, 000 for tbe legisla
ture of 1897, which did not organize;
133,000 for tbe porch ar-e of the branch
asylum site at' Union ; 125,000 for the
replacing of the burned I uildings of the
state agricultural college at Corvallis,
and $15,000 for (he expense of the Ore
gon commission at the Omaha expositiou.
A glAxce ahead.
Heery Clews, tbe great financier, pre
dicts that the ilosing yeai haa been a
remarkable one in roaoy respects. An
unexpected war bas been fought, within
its limits. About 10,000,000 additional
population have come under ous-control ;
thousands of square miles of tha most
fertile territory in the world have been
added to our domain; civilisation bas
taken a momentous step forward, and
tbe United States, conscious of its ma
turity and atrenth, has suddenly taken
a foremost position in the family of
nations, involving changes of policy and
vast possibilities' concerning tbe future
which can only be dimly foreeen.
Whether we will or not, events are forc
ing upon us a policy of expansion, which,
in spite of danger!, means an era of great
opportunities forlAmericsn enterprise.
A revolution baa taken place within a
few short months; the curtain has been
drswn, and our people are rapidly be
ginning to realize that their field la the
world, and that in future we must adopt
more liberal ideas and work on a larger
Next year we will strike the hlshest
notch of prosperity that tide country, or
any other, has ever reached. Good
times will embrace Ilia entire nation-
all industries will enjoy great activity,
and in consequence, labor will be in full
demand at good wages. Tbe people of
this country will be contented, hsppy
and loyal beyond precedent, tbe glori
ous results of tbe American-Spanish war
are going to be more tar-reaching than
the most brilliant dreamers of America's
destiny have ever pictured. The world's
commerce will be revolutionised. The
acquisition of tbe Philippines makes our
Pacific coast ot immensely greater im
portance and value to us than ever be
fore. We are placed in possession of a
frontdoor entrance to the vast com
merce of all Asia. From ocean to
ocean run our great railroads, and under
this new Impet js these great arteries of
trade will infuse lile into! the remotest
corners of the land. The Construction ot
the Nicaragua and Panama canals in
our interests must soon bl undertaken.
Their completion will make the Carib
bean Sea the commercial rendezvous oi
tbe world. t
The enormous benefits t accrue to us
may be only Imagined. Porto Rico, our
new outpost, and Cuba wilf share in the
great distribution. We ar now fast ap
proaching a 100.000,0001 population
which will certainly come; within the
next ten years. Reflecting men now be
gin to realize that fact, and that then we
cannot (ail to surpass all other countries
in wealth and international importance.
Hitherto they have not dreamed of what
the United States is to the rest of tbe
world, and now that their eyes are open
to the inevitable expansion of our com
merce and power, a great hope la in
Bplrinn the public consciousness. This
new inspiration must henceforth be
great impulse force behind the industry
and wealth of the country, and Its effect
can hardly fall anything short of a great
bound in national enterprise.

Salem, Jan. 11. Two handsome ami
inspiring United fttatea flags floated
over Oregon's stately capltol yesterday,
and will remain there for forty days,
elgnaling the fact that the letrialature of
the state is convene r In regular session
for the enactment of such messures as)
are deemed best for Ihe advancement of
the interests of tbe j:ornmonwealtb sfjd
the repeal of ancfj tfers as are not con.
eidered in line with 'that policy.
It was a happy; looking, Intelligent
and, to every appearance1, I well meBff-As
ing body of men that assembled In both '
house yesterday. I A different feeling
was evident amon them than baa been
noticeable for several sessions. Tberw
was no barrier to obstruct free and con
fidential communion. The legislative)
sky was clear, and the atmosphere freo
from the miasma of political wire-working.
Tb greetingM were cordial and the
determination for earnest, onited work
were geouine. Under such favorable
auspice tbe regular session was inaugu
rated and the people of tb ataU have)
very reason to U hopeful of good results.
Tbe work of organization was of short
duration. The officers of senate and
boose during the extra session were re
elected at once, exoept in tbe case of the
srgeant-at-arma of the house, where the
dictates of propriety demanded a change,
and to this place Benjamin 8. Worsley,
of Astoria, was sleeted.
The greatest question so far apparent
is bow to hsndl the question of commit
tee cleiks, which hi as far from being
settled as it ever was. The no ruber of
men, women, boys' and girls seeking
such place is as Urge as it bas ever
been, and members ' are importuned to
an extent that is terribly annoying and
difficult to meet. There is a sincere de
sire upon the part of a majority of the
members to lessen the evil of the com
mittee clerk graft, bu tbe political pree
sure is wonderful and the question ia
just where to draw', the line. Every
member bas some friepd or friends seek
ing these jobs and feels bouod to help
them, so be is willing .to let "tbe other
fellow" do tbe reform iact so long aa hi
own friends get what they want.
Salxv, Jan. 9. Oregon law maker
met in regular session today at 10 a. m.
and owing to tbe fact that number of
members were absent from each bouse)
an adjournment was taken till 2 p.m.
at which tim a number- of resolution
were passed, some special committee;
announced, 37 bills introduced in tb
house, and after an effort on the part
of both bouses to regulate ; the matter of
committee clerks, which 1 tailed, both
house adjourned till Tuesday at 10 a.
m. Notwithstanding tbe (act that there
is no senator to elect, the lUte house is
thronged with people owing largely to
the fact that all the state' officials ex
cept state printer are changed today,
and a large number of assistants are ap
pointed at this time, hence the anxious
Each separate h6use was called to

lature met in joint session for the pur
pose of canvassing tbe.vote for governor
after the result was announced the re
tiring governor W, P, Lord, the governor
elect T. T. Geer,' and thejretiring state
officials were seated on the platform
with the presiding officers of tbe legis
lature, when the retiring governor read
his valedictory address which was quite
lengthy taking one hour'and 20 minutes
to read it, the message contained a n em
ber of excellent suggestions and showed
the state to be out of debt and a nice
cash balance in the treasury. At this
time Gov. Elect Geer was presented and
took the oath of office and then read his
message to the legislature, the'governor
