IlEPrBLII'AN STATE COSiTESTIOJI-
A Republican State Convention is here
by called to convene in the city ot Pot tland,
Wednesday, May 3d, 1876, at 11 o'clock
A. M to select six delegates to the Nation
al Republican Convention, candidates tor
judges of the supreme court in the second
third and fifth judicial districts, for prose
cuting Attorneys for the several judicial dis
trict?, three presidential- electors, and a
candidate for representative in congress,
and for tlie transaction of such otiier busi
ness as may come before the convention.
It is recommended tliat priaiary and
county conventions in tlie several counties
be held as follows : Primary conventions
on Wednesday, April .19th, and county
conventions on Wednesday. April 2(th, or
at such otlier times as tite county commit
tees may appoint.
Tlie following is tlie apportionment of
delegates in tlie said convention upon the
basis of the Republican vote tbr representa
tive in congress in 1875 :
Baker 3 Linn .10
Benton C Marion 13
Clackamas 0 Multnomah 13
Clatsop 3 Polk 4
Columbia 1 Tillamook 2
Coos 5 Union 3
Curry 2 Umatilla 4
Iotiglas 7 Wasco.. 3
Grant 3 Washington ,. 4
Jackson 4 Yamhill..... 8
Lake 2 Total 115
In making this call for Republican
State Convention, tlie State Central Com
mittee realize the fact that too much impor
tance cannot be attached to preliminary
operations. This being a "government of
the people, by the people, for the people,"
the agents or officers ot the government
should be in accord with the people. Ac
cording to the general accepted plan of
selecting candidates, the first steps are ta
ken in our primary, county and State con
ventions. These form the ground work of
political organization upon which tlie whole
superstructure must stand or fill!. If hon
est men desire honest officials, is it asking
too much that tbey lay aside for a day all
o:her business affairs and devote the time
necessary to select proper persons to attend
county and State conventions ?
In view of these considerations and of the .
important interests at stake we earnestly
appeal to all legal voters who are in sym
pathy with the principles of tlie Republican
party, regardless of personal likes and dis
likes to rally at the primaries, and see to it
tliat none but tine men are entrusted with
tlie business of preparing for the coining
political campaign : Select men who are
not only true themselves in the broadest
sense ot tliat term but men of dixcernnirnt,
men who can and will elmose wisely for tlie
good of tlie people in defiance of "rings"
It is uuneccessary at this time to reiterate
in this call the principles ot tite Republican
party; its glorious record is still fresh in
the memory of an enlightened public ; it
is sound upon all tlie great principles affect
ing our national existence ; it is the party
of progress and development ; it exposes
corruption wherever found and inflicts pun
ishment upon conspirators, tearful and sud
den, without respect of person or position ;
it favors the universal enlightenment of the
people without trammel of creed or ism ;
and its banner is found in the van leading
on the hosts of reformers in all that tends
to higher civilization and enlarged freedom.

To the Centennial Exposition.
"The Chicago and North-Western
Railway 'will, on and after May 1, 1876,
and until October 31, 1876, have on
salo in all of its coupon ticket offices,
(including its two ticket offices at Oma
lia), round trip excursion tickets to Phil
adelphia and New York and return fur
Centennial Visitors. These tickets, for
the roand trip, will be sold at one and
one-half of the usual rate tor a trip one
way. They will be ot two classes, bnt
will be sold at the same rates. One
class of tickets will be good, East of
Chicago, going and returning by the
same route, and tlie other class will be
good, East of Chicago, going by one
route and returning by another, thus
ofTering to the purchasers a choice of
routes and chances to see various parts
ot tlie country.
Neither cars nor trains will be chat
tered for excursion parties going to the
Centennial by this or any other road,
nor will rates be less per person for par
ties large or small.' .Every person going
will have to pay the ; same rat as is
paid by his neighbor, . No other road
will bo permitted to sell round trip
tickets for the Centennial, at any less
rate than is quoted above. Reduced
rate lockets reading only to the Exposi
tion will not be sold, and tfco rates
made are all for the full round trip. All
Agents ot the Chicago and North-Wes-tern
Railway will, in due time, be fully
advised as to rates from their stations
for these Centennial Tickets,. and will,
after April 1, 1878, be glad to answer
all enquiries in regard to them."

The Young Lawyer.
The tie which" bound a certain Detroit
youth to a lawyer's office was severed
yesterday, and his parents were happy.
They wanted the boy to make a great
lawyer, but he was getting along too
fast. lie pursued his studies with an
ardor which cast a Judicial shadow o'er
(he household and created considerable
neighborhood talk. He got trusted for
candy and repudiated tlie bill on the
ground that he was a minor, lie
bought a dog and went into bankruptcy.
I le borrowed a pair of skates and defied
the owner to get out a writot replevin.
1 le borrowed fifty cents and then made
the lender his assignee.
But the worst of it was in the family.
He had a legal name for almost every
thing, and his desire was to prove to his
parents that he wa just absorbing dead
loads of law. If he wanted a potato at
dinner-table he would remark:
"Father, file my claim against that
baked potato and I'll prove the indebt
edness this afternoon."
, If he wanted bread he said: "Mother,
get me out a writ of attachment for a
piece ot bread."
It was expected of him that he would
build the morning fires, but no sooner
had he gained an insight into law than
he said to his father:
"I'm going to move for a change of
venue unless some other arrangement is
He moved for a stay of proceedings
when asked to go to tlie grocery, and if
chided for being out nights he replied :
"File your declaration and give me a
chance tor a jury trial."
When he was in goood humor he
would sit and regale his mother with
stories about how Old Chancery was
going up town one night and met Old
Equity and asked him how Decree was
getting along. Old Pleadings and Ex
ceptions came alo:ig just then, and there
was a big tight, and the young lawyer
would slap his leg and add:
"If Indictment had only been there
he'd have whaled the whole crowd!"
The other day tlie long-sufiering
father severed the tie. He was trying
to bear up, hoping for reform, bnt as he
sat down to the tea-table his son bright
ened up and remarked:
"The defendant will now take the
stand and be sworn. Now sir, did you
or did you not come out of a Griswold
street saloon at 11 o'clock this morning,
wiping your mouth on the back of your
hand? Tell the jury all about it, sir!"
It was a little too much, and the boy
doesn't study law any more. He plays
with a wood-pile in the back yard.
Shkep the Salvation of the Farm
"Horses have ruined the farm and
sheep must save it," said a practical and
thoughtful farmer to us recently ; and
the remark has in it a great deal ot wis
dom. However much we may prize
the horse for his valuable, service to man,
all sensible persons must admit that the
breeding of horses has in the few past
years assumed undue protwrtions, which
has not brought corresponding profitable
returns to the farmer, at least. Now,
sheep husbandry is"profitable to direct."
There are no losses aud few risks to be
met with in the business. Early lambs,
tat wethers, wool and pelts, always
bring good prices at a market. Be
sides, heep bring up the condition of
the farm, and as tlie old adage has it,
turn the earth to gold wherever their
footprints are found. Nothing is so
good to counteract the effects of too
much horse, as a course of sheep hus
bandry, well-selected and judiciously
followed. W c are not sure but our
practical friend was not more than halt
right when he said sheep were to bo
the salvation of our farms and the res
toration of oiir farming to a safe , basis ;
and if more could realize and follow it.
we verily believe a larger share ot pros
perity in farming would be the result.
Pickling Beef. To pickle beef tor
long keeping! First, thoroughly rub
salt into it and let it remain in bulk tor
twenty-tour hours to draw off the blood.
Second, take up, letting it drain, and
pack as desired. Third, have ready a
pickle prepared at follows: For one
hundred pounds of beef use seven pounds
of salt; saltpetre and cayenne pepper, of
each one ounce; molasses, one quart, and
soft batter, eight gallons; boil and skim
well, at d, when cold,- pour it 'over tho
beef. . -
"Well, my boy," said a New York
father to his eight-year old son, the oth
er night, "what have you done to-day
that may be set down as a good deed?''
"Gave a boy five cents," replied the
hopeful. "Ah! 1 ah! that was charity,
and charity is always right. He was
an orphan boy, was he?'' : "I didn't
stop to see," replied tlie 1 boy; "I gave
bim the money for licking a boy who
upset ray dinner basket."

"No sir," said a weary looking man,
on a street car, to an individual by his
side, "I wouldn't marry the best woman
alive. I've been a dry goods clerk too
long for that."
"Was tho crowd tumultuous?" in
quired one man of another who had just
come from a mass-meeting. "Too multn
ous,'t replied the other. "Oh, no! just
about multuous enough to comfortably
fill the hall."

Professor Proctor, the English astron
omer, has recently delivered a very inter
esting lecture upon the moon, extracts
from which are here appended:
Tlie moon's diameter is 2,100 miles,
and she is distant 238,828 miles. Her
surface is less than our globe in the
proportion of one to thirteen and a half,
or in other words, includes about 14,
700,000 square miles, equal to the com
bined extent ot North and South Amer
ica. The volume of the moon is to that
of the earth as one to forty-nine and a
half, and tho relative masses as one to
The speaker had heard that the ob
servatory to be established on the Rocky
Mountains will bring the Moon in thir
niiles of us; but that is impossible. Tlie
optical image formed by the object glass
ot the astronomer has defects. When
you get beyou a certain point it is use
less to magnify it -you magnify the de
tects. When you get beyond a certain
point it is useless to magnify the image
as it appears, and there is no hope ot
any telescope larger than Rosse's to get
a close view of the moon. It is hope
less to expect to find signs of life on our
satelite, for the moon has no atmosphere.
This is by the fact that shadows thrown
by the lunar mountains are seen black,
whereas, did atmosphere exist, they
would, vary in . intensity. , Also, when
the moon passes over a star the latter
flashes out suddenly; it there were any
atmosphere, the star would lie seen
precisely as our sun when sinking. The
moon has no water, for it it had, and it
even a shallow atmosphere existed,
the water would be raised into the latter,
and increase or decrease the streaks or
marking which appear cn the great
floors. In answer to tlie question:
Where then has the water gone? four
suggestion are made. The first is that
a comet carried awjay the lunar oceans
and atmosphere. The second, that the.
surface is covered with frozen snow.
Tlie objection to the latter is tliat there
is no sign of the whiteness which would
then appear, for, m fact, the color of the
moon is about that ot weather-beaten
brown sand. Tlie third idea is that the
lunar oceans hare been withdrawn into
the substance of the moon; and the
fourth is that the moon is egg-shaped,
and that tho center ot gravity, being
displaced on the further side, has carri
ed to that side tlie oceans and air of the
moon, and that the side of the moon
never toward us may be comfortable
abode ot life.
Mouammedax Discipline. Euro
pean nations have a low estimate of
Turkish soldiers, as deficient alike in
equipments and in courage; but an
Englishman, traveling in the East, says
that these soldiers are under wonderful
discipline, and are trained to habits as
self-control and geod order, elsewhere
nnk nown. He saw a body of tour thou
sand soldiers enter Constantinople after
a weary march of many weeks, but they
made no disturbance in the city, and
their presence was hardly know.
"Not a single extra case was brought
before the police courts ; not a voice of
quarrel or complaint was beard in the
streets. J ho tew efheers who accom

silence ot an Eastern night. Morning
dawned, and if the bazaars and baths
were crowed, the mosques were no less
so. Not one of the four thousand but
turned to Mecca five times a day, in
witness to the unity ot God and the
mission of the prophet."

A Centennial novelty in the way of
political organizations will be a feature
ot the approaching Presidential canvass
in Chicago. It will, consist of a Re
publican club of one hundred men who
will parade in uniforms of the continen
tal pattern, with the traditional cocked
hat and knee breeches. The organiza
tion will, it is likely, visit the ceuter-
nial exhibition to suggest to otlier lie
publicans the propriety of similar clubs
in different parts of the Union. It will
favor Blaine and Senator Oglesby tor
the Ilepablican nomination, but wi.I, of
course, support the regular nominee.
