TfLS GROVER MATTER.-
The investigating committee are still
inquiring into iheGrover matter: A
large-number or witnesses have been
wimmwtedy. who, generally speaking,
have obeyed the summons and answer
ed the questions' propounded to them.
Mean, ilosier and Tic Trivett, so far,
have lotted to pot in an appearance, al
thongtr eagerly sonsht tor. - It is vital
to G rover that at least hosier should
bo produced. The evidence so far is
pretty much vf the beamy kind;- no
ooe knows or wfll'tell, anything- posi
tive, from his own knowledge. We
have dim visions of members of the
Legislature who were poor aod wanted
coin ; 'of certain members reported to be
ia the market at a thousand dollars each;
of a -Portland banker with a carpet bag
fall VfjT&oiD, supposed to be G rover mon
ey, and roach other matter of a similar
tenor. Bat so far we have no positive,
straightforward evidence that any one
was jpaid bo much cofn to vote for gro
ver.") And it is11 possible that sach evi
deoce may not be obtained. It Grover
is guilty he should sutler the penalty ;
... . . ' a.
a be a mocent, he sfaoaKi clear nis stiru
from every suspicion of guilt. Nearly
all the witnesses state that there were
rumors that money bad been used in
the senatorial contest, and where there
is so much emote there is generally
some fire, and it will take positive evi
dence to the contrary to relieve Mr.
Grover of the odium at present resting
upon him'. ' Men who sell themselves
io politics are about the last to aid in
the exposure of tLe crime.
A CHANGE FOR THE BETTER.
Under the heading of "State Control
of Railways," tho Oregpnian has some
very interesting remarks, from which
We quote. The4octriue of the "vested
righto"-of railway corporations, based
upon the decision of the Court ia the
Dartmouth College case, has tor years
been the commonly received opinion.
Under this decision it was held that
such corporations wore beyond legisla-
aocl fares ; that railroad companies
might, with perfect impunity, charge
the most exorbitant and oppressive
prices for freights : and fares, aud the
State be powerless to modify or in any
way interfere iuhe matter.
Recent decisions ot the United States
8opreme Court, howeverT overturn these
losg-time accepted opinions, by greatly
tnodrfying and even limiting the powers
which these corporations hare for so
long been generally supposed to derive
from their charters. In fact the current

IDAHO INDIAN WAR.
The annexed telegram, taken trom
yesterday's Oregonian, is the latest
from the seat of war :
Walla Walla, July 11th Indian Su
perintendent Watkins telegraphs : The
hostiles have forced their way past our
cavalry and are now at Kamia, on the
way to Bitter Koot. Their success has
induced other Indians to join them in
small bands. More troops aie needed.
From Lewiston to Mipsoula, by way
of the Lolo fork trail across the Hitter
Root mountains, is near two hundred j
miles. This Is the route the Indians
are supposed to have taken.
A special to tho N. Y. Times says
the indictment of Gov. Wells and An
derson, at New Or'eftns; does not meftt
the approval of Gov. Nicholls, but was
instituted by Attorney General Ogden
who is leader of the Bourbon element in
Louisiana politics, and who stubbornly
resisted all efforts to reach an amicable
adjustment of the difficulties. It is be
lieved the prosecution will not be upheld
by a great majority of the State, and it
persisted iu will divide the Democratic
party there on the Bourbon line.
The Fairmount Park Commissioners,
who represent the city of Philadelphia,
have given Lee Craudall the use of Ma
chinery Hall, in Fairmount Park, a
building which covers 14 acres ot
ground, for the establishment of a Na
tional Immigration Bureau. In this
building all contributions from tho dif
ferent States and Territories will be ex
hibited tree of charge ; and Mr Craudall
urges the people trom all sections of the
Union to send to him for said exhibition
specimens of minerals, vegetable pro
ducts, manufactures, works of art, copies
ot laws, statistics, rates ot taxation,
maps, charts, descriptions of lands for
sale, together with abstracts of titles,
the resources ot the State or Territory,
etc The object ot the exhibition is to
foster immigration to States and Terri
tories desiring it, and by a full showing
and a thorough exhibition of the pro
ducts of the soil, etc., emigrants could
at once make np their minds fully where
they could be best suited. Send articles
to Lee Craudall, Philadelphia, Penn.
The New York Times editorial says :
Gov. Grover is in ft fair way to furnish
some of the most striking illustrations
of the manner in which the reform cam
paign was conducted last fall. His fa
mous "Gabblo" dispatch brought him
prominently forward as an intriguer
without any scruples of honor. The
congressional investigation which he in
vited has as yet not convicted him of
bribery, though it shows corruption was
rite in the legislature which elected him.
Investigation has only just begun, and
some of the witnesses are "putting out
for the mountains." as the Oregonians
would say, and a generally unwholesome
aspect ot things opened up at the very
threshold ot inquiry. Grover was lion
ised by Democrats when he came on to
take his seat, as if he had done some.
thins especially worthy of honor, llis
couduct in the Croniu business was pre.
aumably the cause ot Democratic pride
in Grover, aud it it should turn out
that the man who lent himself to the
conspiracy to hire, buy or steal an elec
toral vote for Tilden, also bought his
way into the Senate, nobody would be
in the least surprised.
The Washington monument assooia
tion are indisposed to give up that pile
of stone erected in honor of the "father
of his centry." As tbe'eharacter of the
ground, the foundation and the super
structure have been reported upon un
favorably for a oompletio.) of the monu
ment, it ia now proposed to finish off
the present structure with a metalic spire,
or to put eighty-five feet of tho father
of bis country, io some sort, ot metalic
compound, on the top of the stone work.
The Journal's Washington specials
say the Democratic ring judges in Mary,
land recently indicted for their crimes
by the grand jury have retaliated by
procuring the arrest on a charge of per.

the most eminent citizens ot Maryland,
of high character and great wealth.

The Journal's Washington special
says : The general opinion here is that
tho testimony against Senator Grover
is already sufficiently damaging to im
peril his seat. At the time when ob

several Democratic senators said they
would vote to unseat him if the charges
against him should be sustained. They
may have an opportunity to fulfill their
THE SOUTH CAROLINA PLAN.
Columbia correspondence of the N.
V. Times relates how they now manngc
elections in South Carolina : '!. A.
Straker, Republican Representative i
irom urangeourg county, was excluded
from the House of Representatives be
cause he would not apologise fr his
"contempt"' in adhering to the Cham
berlain House last fall. A special elec
tion was held to fill the "vacancy."
The Democrats had all the commission
ers ot election and every precinct mana
ger. Last tall Gov. Chamberlain ap
pointed a Democrat on each board, but
Hampton did not follow his example.
During tho disorganization of the party
and tho defection of many timid leaders,
3Ir. Stratcr made a vigorous canvass,
and the piecinct returns show him to
have been elected over Dibble, the De
mocratic candidate by over 130 majority.
But when the Democratic commission
ers met to canvass the vote of the pre
cinct, the board threw out three boxes
on account of al'eged irregularities. At
one box the managers refused to swear
the' voters, alleging that it was only nec
essary in cases of chalenges ; at another
the po!esclosoJ before the proper time;
at another place the ballot box was not
sealed before taken to the commission
ers. These were all precincts having
Republican majorities. All the mana
gers were Democrats and no "ii regular
ity'' occurred at any Democratic pre
cinct. The "irregularities" were a 1 ar.
ranged beforehand, and were committed
in two instances, despite Repunlicau
protests. The Democrat was returned
as elected by 231 majority, and the Do
mocratio organs announced "another
county redeemed " Orangeburg gave
Ha-es 1.800 majority.
An election will be held in Charleston
county to fill 17 vacancies in the House,
occasioned by the exclusion ot the Re
publicans who were elected by 6,500 in
November last. Similar "ir'etnilari-
ties" will be discovered iu Republican
precincts after the election, committed
by Demi-cralio managers, and enough
precincts wi 1 be thrown out to give that
county to the JJennnjrats. tor Kepub

hope of obtaining any practical result,
