Last Monday there was an election held
in this aud the various , otlicr counties in
Oregon. In Linn county the Democrats
-scooped tlie Republicans cleaned them to
the bedrock, bat with slightly decreased
majorities. We have not the space to go
tnto details this week. The returns re
ceived so tar indicate majorities as follows:
Bonh&m, District Judge. 239; Ramsey,
Dist. Atty., 237; Haley. State Senator,220;
Stanard, Porter. Weatherford, Crooks,
TSumner and Grimes Representatives, by
majorities ranging from 102 to 277; S. A.
-Johns, Co. Judge, 117; Cliarlton and Holt,
Co. Commissioner?, 279 and 238; Stites,
Co. Clerk, 334 ; Herren, Sheriff. 110;
Urigaby. Democratic candidate, and Dave
Andrews, Republican candidate for Treas
tiriT, 1311 votes each, but as the precinct
not yet reported (Friday) gives a Demo
cratic majority generally, Grigsby Is doubt
less elected; Smith lor Assessor. 218 ; Bil-
yeu. School Commissioner, 189; Bryant,
Surveyor, 188; Jacobs, Coroner, 165. j
Chan, K. Wolverton was elected Justice of
the Peace for Albany Precinct, and O. W.
Warren, Constable. ' .
Tlie vote throughout the State is unusu
ally close. The probabilities are that the
Legislature will stand : Senate 11 Repub
licans, 18 Democrats, 1 Independents 1 ;
House Republicans 30, Democrats 27, In
. dependents 3. Should these figures prove
rrect, on joint ballot, neither party would
have a majority unless Independents voted
with the Democrats. However Inller re
turns may give the majority to the Re
publicans. Tlie returns show a great gain tor the
Republicans in ny event. In this county
the Democratic vote is cut down very con
siderably, notwithstanding the almost su
perhuman exertions . ot the leaders and
whlpperMn of the party. Everything
that could be thought of was doue to se
cure votes, even to paying for votes in
flour; and we give our Democratic friends
credit for being workers, stopping at noth
ing to secure success. We dcubt whether
there is county anywhere, that has been
run by the Democracy so long, that con
tains within its organization so many
workers - does the Democracy of Linn
On tlie the 6th instant, Mr. Blaine took
the House once more by storm. Sia-'Ie-

cratic House, aud captured it, bag and bag
gage. The effect of hi great speech was
truly magical, said nevt-r to have been
equalled in that body. Tliose who were
before simply friends are now -filled with
enthusiasm such as uo other candidate for
Presidential honors ever, before aroused.
We hardly see how it will be possible after
this great success to' beat Blaine at the
-coming Republican National Convention.

Good, healthy rainfall yesterday.
We are not alarmed of discouraged by
the exposure of rascality In high and low
places, which meet our eyes in almost every
morning paper. These exposures are the
natural product ot liealthy reaction, the
preliminary steps toward cure. So long
as traud. speculation and defection exist,
the faster these exposures come the better.
Every.exposure lsj:i preacher of righteous
ness, an evangel of reform. The more
dangerous, all rascality and infidelity to
trust can be made to appear, the better.
Our latest advices lead us to believe that
we have elected .Tudg Boise by a small
majority, and G. n. Burnett, Republican
candidate for District Attorney, is elected
by over 400.

History of False Diamond.
A curious object was sold a tew days
ago at the auction mart ot the Hotel
Drouot, Paris. It was a false diamond
exactly like tbe famous Kegent. So far,
there was nothing extraordinary in the
fact, many pastes having been made be
fore in the Fame model. But the coun
terfeit jast sold for 20 francs was twen.
ty-peven years ago palmed off to an un
sophisticated dupe as the real Regent
for the trifle of 200,000 francs. The
story is worth relating. One day in
1849, a Frenchman, calling himself the
Count de Boissat, waited on Prince
Torveni, at Napla,. "I belong," mid
he, "to one ot the richest families of
France, so rich, in fact, that it recently
bought some of the Crown jewels, and
among them the celebrated iiegeut dia
mond, which I hold in my hand. Be
ing rather pressed for money I thought
I wou!d apply to you to lend me 200,
000 francs ou it." The Prince believed
tlie Frenchman, and lenthim the money.
Needless to say, the "Counte de Bois
sat" did not turn up again. Tlie
Prince subsequently - made a present of
his bad bargain to an actress, who died
in Paris the other day, and the false
diamond figured smonj her effects that
came under the hammer.
A Middle Age Rouuutce.
During the recent visit of the Queen
to Coburg, Germany, ber attention was
called to av venerable tower,, covered
with ivyya striking ; symbol ot Time'a
changes and life's contradictions. Here,
during forty years, Ulrich Von Licit
teusteiu, the lover of the unhappy Ai at
of Saxony, wife ot Duke Jchanii Casi
mir, lingered iu prison. Let me briefly
outline this sad history, which is not
alone of local interest. This lady was
a daughter of Elector ot Saxony, and
was married to -the lke Casimir in
1590. Brought tip amid the gayeties
of her father's court, she developed a
peculiarly lively, temperament, and was
ill-fitted Tor tlie quiet, lonely lite which
tell to her lot after marriage. Tlie Duke,
a passionate lover ot tlie chase, appears
to have neglected lus young wife, and
she prese'itiy fell into the snare laid for
her by one Scotus, a brilliant and wily
adventurer, who had wormed himself
into the confidence of the Duke, aud
secured also the reputation of being a
magician and alchemist. His machina
tions against the young Duchess were
directed toward the result ot getting
possession of her -i jewels, and bringing
her into' a guilty relation with Von
Lichteusteiu, a gallant officer of tlie
Duke's household. .Scotus succeeded
in his devilish intrigue all too well.
Tbe beautiful Princess become totally
under his influence, tailing a victim to
his slight-of.hand arts, and following
his injunctions even so tar as to make
overtures ot love to Von Liehteosieiu.
Scotus fled with Ida booty, and the
relations between the- Duchess and tbe
if ffwMwwlwafet m
courtier did not long remain a secret
Both confessed their guilt, and they
were both imprisoned. Tlie matter
was laid before the Consistory, and
Duke Casimir obtained a divorce. After
leading a life of penitence tr nineteen
years, "during all which time the mis
guided Duchess was kept in close cap
tivity, she closed her nnf.-rtuuate life at
the Coburg fortress in 1013. Even a
sterner fate ' befell Von Lichteustein.
He was condemned to perpetual and
solitary confinement. His sentence was
fully carried out in the old tower lietorc
the city, and his dreadful punishment
ot forty years ended with his life in 1633.
The p'ace of his long incarceration is
incorporated with an elegant lwelling
iiouse, and the walls ot the round tower
now resound with the joyful music and
noiy pastimes of happy youth, instead
of the groans aud sighs and comp'aints
of a languishing captive.' "
A .Milwaukee man made throe un
successful attempts to blow his brains
out, and then his wife told him : "Don't
try it again, John : you haven't got
any." lie goes about saying he owes
his life to that woman.
The other day a Black Hills stage
driver under-took to horsewhip his
passengers into getting out and push
ing up hill, but the gold-seekers held a
a coroner's inquest and found that he
died ot pneumonia.
