THE OEEGOX VOTE.
On the afternoon of Monday, Decem
ber 4th, as previously announced, Gov
ernor Grover and Secretary Chadwick,
in the presence of a largo assemblage,
proceeded to canvass the vote of Oregon,
with the following result :
For Electors -Odell received 15,20G;
"YVAtts, 15,200; CarlwrigU, 15,214;
Klippell, 14,136; Cronin, 14,157; Las
woU, 14,149; Clark, 500; Sutherlan,
510; Curl, 507; scattering, 4. The first
three electors were for Hayes and
"Whee'er, the second three fur Tilclen
and Hendricks, the three last for Cooper
and Carey. It will bo teen from the
above that the Republican Presidential
majority is 1,057.
For Congress Williams, Republi
can, 15,347; Lanej 14,229; scattering,
8. Dick Williams' majority, 1,118.
At the close of the count, the Gov
ernor announced that, in the matter of
the e eel ion of a member ot Congress,
certincate would issue upon ue canvass
to iicliard Williams. In the matter
of the electors, a protest had been filed
in the office of the Executive against
the issuance of a certificate to Mr.
Watts as ar. elector, dn the ground that
lie (Watts) is ineligible, Laving been
postmaster at Lafayette on the day of
election, ar.d instructs the Governor that
Lis duty is to issue certificates to the
three qualified 'candidates ha'ving the
l:ighest number ot votes. The protest
was filed December 2d, and is signed
by It. II. Thompson, J. C. Ainsvvorth,
Geo. L. Curry, C. U. JJellinger, J. S.
White, J. F. Miller, J. II. Reed, W. F.
Trimble, James, K. Kelly, W. II. Ef
fltiger, W. W. Thayer, IJ Jennings, D.
11. Acker, A. D. Shelby and T. Fatter
Bn, and is accompanied by an ailidavit
of four citizens of Yamhill cnuuty as
to the persoral identity ot , Watt and
as to the fact of his being postmaster up
fo November 14th. The board ad
journed until half pa-t nine a. m. Tues
day, to give time for parties to tile
counter statements, when the quotion
raised could beanjuetl and investigated.
After hearing arguments from Sen
ator Kelly and others, lasting through
the entire day of Tuesday and until ten
o'clock at night, Grover took the mat
ter under advisement until Wednesday
morning, when he decided not to give
a1 certificate of election to Dr. Watts,
but to issue a certificate to Mr. Cronin,
one ot the candidates for Elector on the
Tilden ticket. It is gene-ally believed
that the Governor was acting under or
ders from Tilden. And here is an ac
count of the finale of the whole matter,
as given in the columns of the Orcgo
t inn :
The hour of 12, noon, (Wednesday),
when the electors! college was required
to meet and vote, having arrived, the
Republican and Democratic electoral
candidates assembled in a committee
room opening iu tlie Senate chamber.
The certified list of electors containing
the names of Messrs. Cartwright, Odell
and Cronin had been prepared by the
Governor and weie handed to Secre
tary had wick, who attached his oflicial
pignature, and placed thereon the seal
of State. Then placing all three lists
in one envelop, it was sealed up. Mr.
Ohadwick then presented himself at the
3oor of the room where the electoral
candidates were assembled and rapped
npon the door. It was opened and Mr.
Cronin was standing just inside, ready
to receive the envelop, which was Land
ed to Lira, by Mr. Chadwick. After the
lapse of a short time, Mr. Klippel ap
peared and called for J. 2ST. T. Miller,
of Jackson county. Mr. Miller, who
Lad ot course been selected asoneot the
tools in carrying out the plot, was on
band and went into the room Then
John Parker, of Linn county was called
and, like Miller, he was not so far off
but that Rill Watkinds soon led him to
- the door, a nd ho also was admitted.
Then the whole plan was understood
and all were able to form a correct idea
of what was going on inside. Cronin
refused to give the certified lists to
Cartwright and Odell, and they refused
to recognize Cronin as a qualified elec
tor. Cronin assumed that a majority
of the certified electors refused to act
because they declined to acquiesce in
his illegal assumption of the office, and
bo he declared their places vacaut, and
filled them with Miller and Parker, and
the three proceeded to cast what the
i Democrats claim is the electoral vote of
Oregon, a proceeding which, were it not
of such a farcial character as to excite
' derision, would be considered as .one ot
the rrreatest frauds in law and trece-
dent on record. That upon the refusaL
f the electors to act Rrith him, Mr.
Cronin should have cast Lis vote for
Mr-.. Tilden and sent or carried it to
Washington is no matter of surprise,
lor, though he was not elected, the
.fraudulent oilicial notice of election
, riven Lisa by the Governor would at
If:. ' '-V ..... ,
least give a color of justice to his as
sumption of the right to cast a vote;
but that he should forcibly retain pos
session and refuse to give to the two
persons named with himself therein the
certified lists was an outrage more glar
ing, if possible than any other act in the
infamous Democratic programme, and
iil comports with the reputation which
Mr. Cronin had earned for fairness and
honorable dealing, and which will carry
him, with his companions in the fraud,
to an early political grave. Having
filled his rump college with Miller and
Parker, the vote was cast, it is said, two
fbr Hayes and Wheeler and one for
Tilden and Hendricks, Miller and Park
er casting the former and Cronin the
latter. The bogus arrangement was
finished, and it is said Cronin was
selected to carry the thing to Washing
ton. That the Oregon Democracy
think they have played a fine little
game and laugh over their victory.
Republicans can rest assured, that it
will Iks dearly bought and fruitless, and
that the votes of Grover's rump college
will be disregarded in the count ot the
aggregate electoral votes for President
THE CnOWXIXG 1XFAMY
Grover, as a member of the returning
board, appointed himself Dictator, Su
preme Judge, opened Court on Tues
day, heard arguments from Senator
KelJy, II. Y. Thompson, Judge Thayer
and Eftinger, why he should, as the
Supremo Judge of Oregon, refuse to
give a certificate to the man who was
elected Presidential K'ector by 1,057
votes! And this hold-all-thc-othces
man, Grover, acting Governor, claiming
to bo a United States Senator, and as
suming the authority and prerogatives
of Judge, informs the people that they
are not competent to decide whe they
shall .have as Electors; that to him be
longs all power ; and he uses it to de
clare that Mr. Cronin, with 14,157
votes is ejected Presidential Elector
over Dr. Watts, who received 15,203
votes! What do the people of Oregon
say to this last an! most stupendous
outrage upon the freedom of the people?
With such men as Grover in high
places, what are the liberties of the peo
ple worth? The will of the people, as
shown at the ba!Iot-bov, is set aside
without reason or law; the sacredness
of the ballot is laughed to scorn, and
the people are told they have no rights
whielya Democrat ic-U i lited-States-Sen-ator-Julge-Govcrnor
is bound to ro
sject. Will the people of Oregon sit
quietly by and ennlt this unprincipled
demagogue to rob them ol their rights?
COXGRESS-XX. 1 LTOMMEXTS
Congress met on the 4th inst. The
House was called to order by Clerk
Adams. A motion to admit the new
members elect from Colorado and
Maine, before proceeding to the election
of Speaker, was voted down, the Dem
ocrats outraging all precedent by their
votes iu this matter. Samuel J. Ran
dall was elected Speaker, the vote be
ing: Randall, 161; Jas. A. Garfield,
82; C. G. Williams, of Wisconsin, 1;
W. R. Morrison, 1; G. F. Hoar, 1.
Following are a few ot the press com
ments on the opening ot Congress:
The Triumif; -says: The Democratic
House starts on its homestretch badly.
Its refusal to allow members havintr
prima facie title to seats to be sworn
in before the election ot Speaker is con
trary to precedent and in violation of
the dictates of common sense. Its
Sjaker began badly in making a parti
san speech on taking the chair, and as
the third officer ot the government at
the present time, his allusion to the
President was outside ot all official
decorum. The House went on from
bad to worse with its exclusion of mem
bers elect from Colorado and South
Carolina, and the Speaker seems to have
followed its example with his final rul
ing. Altogether it was not a day for
Democrats to be proud ol.
The Times editorially says: The
arrogance and bad temper of Randall's
speech on taking the chair, and the con
tempt of parliamentary- precedents die
played in his first ruling as Speaker,
gave the key note to a session likely to
be marked on the part of the Democrats
by a great deal of turbulence, demagog
ism and reckless partisanship. There
is some reason to hope the Democratic
Senators will behave more rationally
than their party associates in the House.
There is, ot course, a certainty that the
overbearing tactics by which tlie popu
lar branch of Congress will be controlled
will lead to several discreditable and
ridiculous blunders, but it is evident
the bullying and bluster of Confederate
colonels who were so successful in mak
ing a beer garden of the House at fre
quent intervals last winter will be re
inforced by some of the choicest efforts
ot im orthern demagogues. During the
present session, the House will be con-
ouctea like tne democratic campaign
in reliance upon sharp practice, bragga
docio and brute force ot unreasoning
The JleralrPs editorial Fays : The ac
tion ot the majority of the House of
uepresentatives vesterdav in case of the
member elect from the new State ot
Colotado, was uufortunate and ill-advised.
The Democratic party in Colo
rado took part in the Presidential elec
.tion in that State, and the Democrats
all over the Union counted Colorado as
a State that would probably elect a
Democratic electoral ticket. It
had been the result, no one will believe
that the majority of the House ot Rep
resentatives would liave raised a ques
tion as to the right of the State to be
present in the electoral vote. The at- j
tempt to embarrass the admission ofi
Colorado, would fail; it would besides J
fatally damage the JJemocratic position
which at present we are unwilling to
believe that it will be made.
THE ELECTORAL VOTE
Louisiana has gone for Hayes. Flori
da has gone for Hayes. South Caroliua
has gone for Hayes. The. vote has been
counted, and notwithstanding the un
blushing frauds, false witnesses, false
swearing, ballot-stuffing, destroying re
turns from precincts and parishes, the
majority for Hayes was so large it could
not be overcome. Now let the heathen
rage ! We are to have an honest man,
a capable man, a Republican, fbr Presi
dent, who will administer the affairs of
this government for four years from next
March. 1 light, honesty, truth and jus
tice has prevailed. God reigns.
XERRASKA ALL RIGHT.
The Gov. of Nebraska labored un
der the impression, until a few. da3s be
fore the day appointed by Iaw for can
vassing the vote ot the State fbr Presi
dential Electors, that the duty J of can
vassing said vote devolved upon him.
Upon looking into the matter, and
finding that the law entrusted (he mat
ter to the Legislature, he hastily issued
a proclamation convening that body ;
but it was thought impossible j to con
vene the Legislature in so short a time
probably six days as the Democrat
ic members placed every obstacle in the
way, determined that there should le
no quorum. Rut in sp:te of Demo
cratic opposition a quorum was obtain
ed on the 6th, and the electoral vote ot
the State cast for Hayes ar.d Wheeler.
jry .SHALL DECIDE ?
There seems to be a wide 'difference
of" opinion as to the power ofi the Pres
ident of the U. S. Senate in the matter
ot the I residential vote. The Coiisti
tuti.m of the United States hays that
the President of the Senate shall "ojx?n
all the certificates'," in presence of the
Senate and House, "a;id the vote shall
be counted." Precedent, at least, gives
the matter wholly and entirely into the
hands of ti e President of the Senate,
who heretofore has counted the vote
and decided who was elected President.
If past usage is to govern the next
count, the Proident ot the Senate has
the power and will decide who is Presi
dent elect for the coming four years-

The Servians are not a military peo
ple, and in their present War with the
Porte they are extensively officered by
the Russians. It is said that many, ot
these Russian officers have been shot
down from behind ! The Servians were
urged into a disastrous enterprise,; to-
which they were not very strongly ; in
clined of themselves and now when
they cannot escape service by wounding
and bandaging their own arms, they
take revenge by shooting down the
officers who have voluuteered to lead
them ! . -.; - i
It is not alone in battle . that men,
figuratively, if not literally, are often
shot down by their own allies and pro
fessed friends. Many a civil enterprise,
as well as military exploit, has been
wrecked by the treachery of those pro
fessing to aid it. - ;

In every calculation it is not merely
the enemy in front who must be taken
into account ; but also the liability to
be shot down from behind..

Simon Feldt, a rich German farmer,
living with bis mother and two sisters,
near Fa3'0tte, Pa., was awakened about
midnight by a peculiar noise i.ear his
bedroom door. Suspecting burglars,
he jumped out of bed, upsetting a chair
and making considerab'e noise. In
stantly the sound of rapidly retreating
footsteps was heard on the stairs. Feldt
seized a shot-gun that stood in the cor
ner of his room, and ran to his bedroom
window, which was open. Just then
the form of a man appeared, running
across the garden. Feldt fired at him,
but the retreating burglar ' kept on his
way, scaled the fence, and disappeared.
Detached from the farm-house, but only
a few feet from it, is a summer kitchen
or wash-house. Under this is a large
cistern, the mouth of which is in the
center of the floor, covered with a trap
door. This door, however, has always
been left open as often as closed. There
is a door in the end ot the wash-house
next the dwelling, and another in the
opposite end, owning towards the barn.
These doors are never closed, as the
building contains nothing that any one
would care to steal.
The next day one of Feldt's sisters
went to the cistern to draw some water
by means ot a bucket tied to the end of
a rope. The trap was open. She let
ler bucket do. vn, and it came in con
tact with something that prevented its
sinking. Miss Feldt looked down into
tiie cistern, and started back in horror
at the sight that met her gaze. Plainly
revealed by the light that streamed
down through the opening was the face
of a dead man. The rest of the body
was dimly outlined in the surrounding
darkness. . The woman ran into the
house screaming. The body proved to
be that ot the .thief, who had fallen
headlong into the cistern, striking his
head against the. side of the opening
with such force as to cut the gash in it
that was seen, and jio doubt so stunned
him that he was drowned before know
ing what had happened to him.

Soon after noon yesterday a stranger
entered a Woodward Avenue hardware

"They are shingle-nails, of course."

"No' sir. They were , shoe-pegs,

"That was strange," mused the clerk.
"And another time when I ordered
shingle-nails," continued the stranger,
"the clerk put up four stove-handles,
three nutmeg-graters and a coffee-mill.
Can I build a cow-shed out of coffee
