Whin a tusn attempts to put an ar
gument through on a falae promito or
misrepresentation, ho hoi o "paculiar"
wsy of invoking ono misstatement of
foot to bolster up ooothor. Ia fact it
it hit last and only rooort. Thia ia the
predicament iu wbioh the Orejonian
haa placed itaelf with reference to the
content going on between the Preeideot
and Senate over the President's refusal
to transmit to that body hia teaaoni, or
the paper or documents containing the
reason, for making certain suspensions
and remsvaU of Republican officials.
We repeat, that the Ortgonian baa mia
atated the iaaue between the Preaident
and the Senate. Ths iaaue ia whether
the President ia com palled to furniab
the Senate with hia reasons, or the doc
ument containing his resaons, for mak
ing suspensions, while the Oregonmn,n
the light of knowlodge, aays that the
iaaue includea papers aad documenta
upon which appointments have been
made. That paper aays : "Tho Pteai-
dani telle the Senate that pepera on file
in the department, on which he haa
neminatoti men to cftteo are his own
property." Now, the President ha
told the Senate nothing of the kind, and
the Oregonian must be very blind not
to have found out the truth about the
matter. The Senate hae net aeked the
Preeideot for his toaeoni, or the papeia
and documents, containing them, upon
which men have been nominated to
office, therefore there waa no occasion
for the President to refuee them. It ia
evident that the Orejonian haa net rt
the Praoident's aaeaaage, or that it haa
determined to misstate hia position
Hers is what the Preeideot aaya in re
gard to furnishing the Senate hia reasoas
for oominating men to office : "To the
nd that the aervice may bo improved,
the Senate ia invited to the fulleat
scrutiny of the persons submitted to
them for public oifice in recognition of
the constitutional power of that body to
advUe and consent to their appointment.
I shall continue aa I have thus far done,
to furnish at the request of the confirm
ing body, all information I poaa
. a .a as m
touomog tna ntnoaa of the nominees
placed before tbem for their action, both
when they are proposed to fill vacanciea
and to take ths places vf auapended of
ficials." Hare ia an open pledge in hia message
to furnish ths Senate with all thoee
reasons and papers which the Oregonian
aave the President has refused to do.
We must congratulate the Orejonian
on being .he moat successful dodger
from the awkward reeulte of ita own
false promisee we have ever met.

Much haa been said in refrrenoe to
the sotion of the Orand Jury at the late
term of Court in fading "not a true
bill" against Miss Allison, charged
with the murder of Charles Campbell.
Of course, pubHo feeling had been run
ning high since the murder, and it ia
notatrange that the relatives and frienda
of Charles Campbsll should feel indig
nant at the acquittal of one whom they
believed to lave been guilty of the mur
der. But when all tho facts aod cir
cumstances aui-rouadiog the one are
understood, we oaonot permit ourselves
t believe that undue outside influence
as brouuht to bear upon anr member
of the Grand Jorv. Thev are all well
-jp v w
kuown, ref utable citizens without any
shadow upon their character. They
were aworn to isdtot according to the
truth, uninfluenced by envy, hatred,
malice, fear, favor, or hope of reward,
aod that the p rooeediogs before it, the
oounaei of the state, their own counsel,
they should all keep secret. Under
provision of the criminal code when the
Grand Jury are in doubt whether the
facta, as shown by the evidence before
them, constitute a crime in law, they
may mako a presentment of the facta to
the court, without mentioning the namea
of individuals, and aak the eourt to ia
struct them eencerning the lew thereon
This, ws uoderstsnd, was done.and the
court instructed the jury that no con
viotion oould be had upon the stats o
facta presented. If ihia be true, then
ths blsme, if eny, would reat upon ths
Judre and not uoon tbs jury. No ons
doubts the Judge's integrity, we aup
pise. Then bow can the jury be accua
sd of not doiog their duty ? In no way,
except that they were tampered with
and corrupted by outside influences. If
thia waa done, aa haa been intimated,
it is ths duty of those having a knowl
edge of auch facta to make tbem known
thet the execrations tf an outraged
public may rest upon the guilty ones.
Certainly the public cannot claim to
kaow all the evideoca submitted to the
Grand Jury, as,under the statute,tbey
may hear evidence that would exculpate
any one charged with a crime. Then
how can one, not knowing the evidence,
determine certainly that the Grand
Jury should find an indictment. Again,
it has been said that witnesses were
called whoee evidence would have ss
tablisbed the guilt of the accused. But,
under th aatute, it is tbs duty of tho
District Auoruty to present the evi
dence to the Grand J try in the ease of
every person held to answer a criminal
charge, and the Grend J ury have it not
in their power to reject it, so if wit
nesses were not examined who bad been
subpoenaed, we must conclude that the
District Attorney, who bad charge of
the matter, conaideied their evidence
immaterial. Again, we repeat if any
one knows of facta sufficient to show
that any member if the Grand Jury
was tampered with, it is bis duty to
d iaclose the facta to the public that such
a cne may, at least, i shunned and
driven from tbe pretence of decent, law

"Dout you know mo, Brick," alio
yelled, as tho door or my elegant
auminor residence was thrown open
to admit a fair creature, upon whoso
ace ceuld bs plainly seen the pencil
marks of fvrty-thrtw or four summers
and a half. As her voice went rush
ing round tho room, a coldness seemed
to creep down m back and a kind of
way-back feeling swept over my gl
gantlc frame. In a voice, faint and
trembling, t wanted to know where
she came from. Giving me a look
that would have stopped a clock, and
In a vole that told of a heart crushed
and broken, she said she came from
Brownsville. Leaning my pale, cold
cheek on her graceful rhoulder, I
wanted to know who she waa, and
what she cam for,and if her clothea
didn't fit her, and which one of the
girls she was. Striking an attitude
that would have made a cigar sign
turn pale With envy, and In a voice
that shook my cabin and made the
window blinds turn yellow,she called
mo a heartless villain and told me to
let my mind wander back through
tho hazy past, to the time ef long ago
when I was a young, happy, gladsome
tny, and she a winsome, trusting, lit
tle maiden. "Do you think," she
cried, "that 1 have forgotten the hap
py daya of yore, when hand In hand
together we tripped lightly o'er tho
beautiful meadows and plucked the
dalstee and the butter-cups, snd you
wove them Into garlsnds, and with
the love light shining In your eyes,
you placed those sweet fragrant flow-
era on my brow and told me I was
the sweetest posy of thsra all."
"Stop," I cried, as the light began to
break In upon my clouded mind.
Taking her gently in my arms, and,
as her beautiful head clothed lr
wavy maseee of fine silky hair sank
upon my ducking vest, I told hor
that I never wandered in any one's
meadow nor ever wove any garlands,
and that 1 was too nice a little boy to
go hopping around In the tall grass
with any little winsome maid. But
that I knew a man that used to be up
to that racket, and that he now rode
around the country In a Hacfne cart,
and carried a blue patent gate and
a look of woe.
