Hayes and Wheeler two certificates
having been received, one by mail and
corresponding one by Messenger
Thomas C. Anderson of the returning

A third certificate was then presented,
authenticated by the Secretary of State,
certifying to the election ,f eight

having been received by messenger
certifying that John Smith had been
chosen elector from the fourth district,
John Smith No 2 from the second dis
trict, John Smith No 3 from the third
district, etc., and that the eight John
Smiths had cast their votes for Peter

Mr. Chad wick, Secretary of Stale, is
sues his proclamation declaring himself
Governor of the State of Oregon. The
proclamation is signed "S.F. Chad wick,
Covernor; By tho Governor, S. F.
tiadwick, Secretary of State." The
Constitution ot the State ot Oregon
eays that "in case of the removal of the
-Governor from office, or his death, res-
. Jgnation or inability to discharge the
duties of the office, the same shall de
volve upon the Secretary df State."
As the same Constitution declares that
no person shall hold more than one lu
crative office at the same time, Chad,
certainly will not claim that he fs Gov
ernor as well as Secretary of State !
And yet he has signed his proclamation
in both capacities ! It is just possible
that Stevey is running altogether on
"by-laws," and hopes in thefe unsettled
times to get away with the "honors"
and profits of both positions. It is hard
to tell what a ring Democrat won't do
We see it stated that some of the
leading Democratic politicians are ad
vising the Democrats composing the
electoral commission to resign ! The
Democrats have had their own way in
the matter ot making the electoral
commission ; they had the majority and
unless they had voted for the bill au
thorizes such a commission it could
never have been formed ; but, as this
-commission seems to be determined to
do its duty honestly in the premises
finding Hayes and Wheeler elected,
the choice ot the people, they will so
announce your honest Democratic pol
iticians would like to disorganize and
destroy the work of their own hands!
But we don't believe such counsels will
prevail, but the rote will be counted,
nd the Republican candidates duly
declared elected. 'Bah.
Apparently oar entire population

think the "wah" had really commenced.

In 1872 Sec. Chad wick gave to each
of tlie Presidential electors a certificate
of their election. In 1877 he handed
all tlie certificates (in one envelope) to
Croirin, who was not elected and had no
title to them under the sun ! And this

On the 13th there were 76,000 stran

witness the carnival on that day.
The programme ot the day was fully
earned out, the subject of the process"

covered was from 1,500 years before
Christ to date. It was a brilliant af

The suspicion of corruption in the
manner of Grover's election to the Sen
ate is so strong, that that body will be
compelled to investigate the matter. It
is confidently asserted by those who
are supposed to know whereof they
speak, that so great will be the
amount of corruption disclosed, ' that
Grover will be excluded from a seat in
that august body. And then this base
fraud will crawl into his hole and pull
the hole in after him.
In the matter ot the Louisiana vote.
the Democrats claim that two of the
Hayes electors were ineligible, as the v

the electors resigned their offices, and

fill vacancies. The Democratic Con-
