The Enterprise charged bim with
stretching the sberitTi sales and charg
ing 13 an inch, and he does not deny it,
but now says for the fi ist time that he
never contracted to do It tor lcaa. As
this does not tally with wbat the board
contracted for, or wbat Cheney bas told
tliera be would do, what is going to
be done? The coat Is greater than be
fore the contract was let, but this Is re
form. Cheney baa admitted to the
board that be bas over-charge!, and as
his excuse told thetn that the Enterprise
was standing in, and he supposed the
board was. We state this as Cheney I
modest, and does not like to tell th
public all he tells th board.

The reviving cheerfulness of the edi
torial tone of lb democratic newspapers
is merely a renewed proof of tbe persist
ent bopefulnes of the human heart and
of iu 'power to recuperate in tbe face
of discouragement. Pioneer Tress.
Ij 1896 the democratic prophecy was
that prosperity could not come without
fiee coinage at 16 to 1. Last year the
cry was "prosperity cannot last." It
reminds one of the sign boards after
youthful America is through juggling
with them on Hallowe'en night.
It is with deep reuret that the Ameri
can people learn of the death of the vice
president. He was a man universally
liked and respected by all who knew
bim without regard to party. As pre
siding officer of the senate his decisions
were alasys respected as fair and honest.
Tug munificent donations by (he
Stanford estate to the 8tnlord univer

12,000,000 having been recently turned
over to the university by Mr. Stanford
The endowment of th state university
of California at Berkely by Mrs. Hearst
is almost as great and it is said that if
the building are completed at Berkley
on the plana selected, that nothing w ill
compare with them in the world. The
plans were prepared in Paris and a large
premium offered for the best competition
being open to the world. Many eastern
colleges have received lame gifts and
endowments, notably Chicago, The
good that will be done by this wise ex
penditure of money cannot be estimated.
Many a poor boy and girl will get a
chance to get an education that would
otherwise be impossible. The good that
these people will do and the effort that
they will stimulate in all with whom
they come in contact will largely help
the state In many ways aod not the least
will be good citizenship. It ia acts like
these that not only should, but do bring
wealth and labor more closely together.

Ix a decision at Albany Judge Boise
held that foreign loan associations doing
business in Oregon make illegal loans in
that they are usurious where more than
ten per cent interest is charged in the
way of interest. This will affect a
large amount of business of these com
panies in the state and may force them
out of business here.
Tug controller of the currency reports
on the condition of the country In which

have increased beyond parallel. When

Tub petition of Goebel to have the
vote of the city of Louisville thrown out,
on the allegation that the judges and
vo'erswere "intimidated," is an admis
sion that he was not elected and that
Taylor got more votes. 01 course, the
charge of "intimidation" is ridiculous;
tut Goebel wants the office of governor
and expects his corjitniftHoners of elec
