A Grays Joke The Salem Statesman
tells the following, probably manufact

hasn't been in session long, but the story
tellers are getting in their work and there
are tome goods yarns going the rounds,
The latest is on Representative Miller.of
Linn : A stranger while stopping at the
hotel in Lebanon became sick, and in a
short time died. He had no friends
them and the people did'nt even know
his name, bat his cass had elicited no
little sympathy and the citizens .got to
gether and gave him a fine funeral.
Around the grae there were the usual
solemn ceremonies and after their con
clusion a man, who had taken a promi
nent part, inquired if anyone would like
to say something. There waa silence for
a moment and then Miller stepped for
ward and said: "If no one else wants
to speak, I would like to say a tew words
on the tariff."

Harnev County. A writer in an ex

is one of the leading counties of the state
for hay. When one first gets a view of
Harney valley he would think it was most

thousands of tons for sale at $2.50 per ton.
It would be a gteal advantage to this

that the hay could be shipped to other

be laid in the shade when it comes to
gallant conduct in affairs of arms or the
less sanguinary conquests of the gentle
sex, immediately couched a reply in the
most elegant military language, and in

female, while the colonel awaited results

PUBLIC INUgssTEDKSat ,
The man who proclaimed that "a public
debt is a public blessing," is sn enemv to his
race. A public debt is a public burden just
as certsinly snd distinctly ss a private debt
is a persona burden. For thia reason the
legislature, which U the debt creating power
of th stste, should be as judicious In incur-
I ring debts as a careful business man would
be But a stste should not be pstshnoniou
and niggardly but the line should be drawn
en the line of reason and good judgment .
Sometimes an epidemic of extravagant ex
penditutet seems to sweep over a stale, snd

hsve increased m jch more rapidly I baa popu

and hence the state ia not in debt, bat It is a
deplorable fact thst many counties have Urge
burdens of indebtedness to carry. Let the
members of the legislature be careful that
no indebtedness of doubtful utility be incur

The more the last debt statemen t is
studied in the light of the demands upon

and encroaching dangerously upon the coin
reserves, will taMta ha iUs. to tita) over
the two months of existence that remain to
But after that the truth will appear
and a meant must be found of repairing
the deficit. If the republican senate will
permit, something may be done at this
session to stop the gap. The most likely
revenue measure to pass is that raising the
hiskey tax to $1 25 a gallon. It would
add about $35,000,080 a year to the
revenues without hurting any industry or
adding a cent to the cost of any necessary
of life. As there is no opposition made to
it by the manufacturers of whiskey, it seems
not unlikely that the bill may be passed.
The death of Thomas Jefferson and John
Adams formed a remarkable coincidence
They died on the Fourth of July, 1326. al
most at the same hour. Z, They were both
members of the nnuittee that framed the
declaration of independence; both signed
it; both had been American ministers at
European courts; both had been vice presi
dents and presidents of the United States,
and both had lived to a great age. Adams
died at Quincy at the age of almost 91 rears;
Jefferson died at Monticello, Vu. at the age
of almost 84 roars. They died exactly 50
years (almost to an hour) f after they had

Washington, Jan 9, 1893.
Senator Chandler is developing a tenden
cy to throw oratorical I .ricks- around with
all the careleaxnena which characterized the
sensational congressional career of Benja
min F Butler. While speaking in favor of
the National Quarantine bill Mr Chandler
made a few remarks about the relations
existing between Secretary Foster and
other treasury officials and the North Ger
man Lloyd Steamship Co, the agents of
which have been in Washington since the
session began for the purpose of preventing
legislation for the suspension of immi
gration, lie also bad something spicy to
ray about tao courtesies extended by the
same steamship company to the prominent
newspaper men woo compose the Gridiron
Club Here are the exact words of bis
arraignment of Secretary Foster and Assist
ant .'secretary bpauiuiog. ana many con
sider it strong enough to call for an
investigation. If it isn't true Chandler
should apologize; if it is true Foster should
be impeached. "This North German
Lloyd Steamship Company," said Senator
Chandler in his speech, "is the favorite
route for the secretary of the treasury and
the assistant secretary of the treasury and
the commissioner of immigration and
oilier bearury officials when they go abroad,
and the company is very kind to them. It
always gives them the best of accomoda
tions, and if they find themselves lacking
in money when they are on the other side
and congress has been negligent in provid
inir the means for their transit and their
support over there, it loans them money
It is very evident from Mr Chandler's
plain and unmistakable language that be
believes the republican officials whose doty
it is to inforce the present immigration Law
have been bribed by this steamship com
pany to nesiect their sworn duties, aad
that be thinks some prominent Washington
coneauussnsaats are in the same boat The
speech has caused a great sensation in
W aahington. and that class of newspaper
correspondent's entirely too numerous
who make a practice of placing- themselves
under obligation for favors received from
any who choose to offer them are highly
indignant; but all the same it is a fact that
so correspondent is apt to write disagree -able
thing, even though be knows them to
be true, about those he is under obligations
to. That speech hits a good many of them
in a tender spot, and it hurts. Some papers
trill not allow their correspondent here to
accept costly courtesies, aad the socaxer tbey
all get on that basis the better for all con

The removal of the seat of government
to Washington was effected in the summer
of 1800. It seemed like transferring it to a
wilderness. Only the north wing of the
capitol was finished, and that was utted up
to accomodate both houses of congress- The
president's house was finished externally
but much had to be done on the inside
There was only one good tavern, and that
was insufficient to accommodate half tie
congressmen. There was only a path
through the alder swamp along the line of
Pennsylvania avenue from the president
house to the capitol.
