Tba next U. S. Senate will be com
posed ot two Independents thirty
ight Republicans and thirty-six
Democrats. The Independents are
Mahoneand RiddWberger of Vir
ginia. Ireland, would improve her con
dition with fever police barracks and
more school hoaxes, more school
masters and fewer constables. Or
ganized associations for murder
makes-barracks and police necessary.
Three hundred cit'xe-ns of New
York, representing tl,000300,000 of
capital, have made known to Gav.
Cleveland that they regard the "Five
eent Fare Bill" with grave appre
hension as a breach of faith upon the
part of the State, and an attack upon
the rights of the people. The Gov
eruor vetoed the bill
The right of the electors to vote
up oadown, and early and often, an
article for the constitution, to pro
hibit the manufacture and sale of
pints, wine, beer and cider is gen
erally conceded by the people to be
one of the inalienable lights contem
plated by the Declaration of Inde
pendence, and included in that clause
relating to the pursuit of happiness.
Tbe Republican Congress saved
the country from a serious monetary
disturbance, and from a leap in the
dark, by extending the National
Bank Act, against the solid opposition
f the Democrats, who now, ot
course, will have to carry out their
policy of destroying the National
banks, and put their substitute in
place of it.
The recent Democratic minority in
Congress which opposes every act of
the Republicans, ha since become
the majority, and must take up the
responsibility of undoing what it op
posed, and of substituting a policy
consistent with their former actions;
bat consistency with them in tbe past
has been unknown. Republicans will
observe with interest the formation
of Democratic opinion, which should
now take plage, preparatory to the
impending time for leginlativc action.
The amount now paid by the Gov
ernment in pensions is doubli the in
terest on the National debt. There
was more paid out in pensions last
year by ten per cent, than during the
entire period from the foundation ot
the Government to the breaking out
of the rebellion. Since 1861 there
have been $562.'741.170 67 expended
for this purpose, and the appropriation-for
the coming year is $100000,
000. This is equivalent to a per
capita tax of 2 50 upon the entire
population of the country. It is
probably a larger sum than- was re
quired for the pay of the army (not
its maintenance) at any time during
the war.
The Democratic element in Con
gress which recently opposed tbe
Republican work ot modifying the
war tariff, and voted in mass against
the act the country will look to the
present Democratic house for a tariff
poiicy they being now in the majot-
ity. The Democratic element in the
late Congress which oii the one side
endeavored to reduce the whisky and
tobacco tax in order to preserve a
high tariff, and on the other side to
preserve a large internal revenue in
order to reduce the duties which tax
consumption without revenue will
now have to be fonsrbt out amonsr
themselves to give them any tariff
policy at all and in the mean time the
country and especially Republicans
will wait with much cariosity to ob
jrrt their action?.

The legislature of Minnesota has

Mesquit grass keeps green the
year round, is very hardy, takes root
quickly a mere scattering of the
seed over the snrtace of the ground
being sufficient makes good hay for
cattle, I've seen horses eat it with
p parent relish, and kills out fern.
Upon the latter point a great many
adverse opinions are held, but I am
speaking from experience and can
show any incredulous reader a small
patch wb'ch I sowed two years ago
in mesquit, which then was quite
thick with fern bat is now entirely
covered with mefquit grass and also
other patches in process of transfor
mation. Most farmers who have
given it a fair trial are of the same
opinion. It grows well on hillsides
requiring but little soil to propoxate

A recant dispatch frmn San Francisco,
says: A gentleman prominently connected
with the management of the Oregon Pacific
railroad arrived from the east Saturday,
where he has been engaged foi the past two
months in matters ulating to the construe-'-
tion of the proposed road. In conversation
with an Orego.ilan correspondent he stated
he was unable to give any detailed account
of the conternpla fed work or the result of
his labors in the east, as arraugements had
not boen finally consummated. It was not
improbable that within the next two weeks
matters would aasume definite proportions
so that work will be commeccod on short
order after the receipts of certain plans.
At present the only thing he could state ad
visely is that every important developement
are tinder consideration, and when finally
decided upon a flank movement wonld be
made and work pushed on to speedy conclu
sion. A asbiegrsm.frora London is anxious
ly awaited, which would determine the com
plexion of matters to a considerable oxtent.
He leaves for the east this afternoon.

three and one-half yeai-i, to be distributed
as a dividend at the rate of 2J per cent per
annum on the preferred stock of the Oregon

after July 1st, 1S86, to the lesser- company,
35 per cent of the gross earning, with a gua
rantee that this percentage will he sufficient
to pay the fixed charges of $20,000 per an
num for the maintenance of the'organization
and minimum or 2 per cent dividend on the
preferred stock.
And still a liter dispatch from New York
confirming the same says:
New York, March IS. At the office of
the Oregon and Transcontinental company
it was stated that advices- received' this
afternoon announce the acceptance by the
London stockholders of a proposion made at

St. Paul, March 19. The Pionaet Press

gor, cattle yards, shop, elevator, writer

The doctrine of polygamy aa taught and
practiced by the filth and senm of humanity
in UiehWs doubtless gaining ground deapitc
the long -winded consideration of congress,
says the Prinevilie AVwa. Its growth ond
pread seems to be as certain a fate; find the
"saints" pay -no heed to tbe acts of the gov
ernment regarding their behavior, but act
right ou in the capacity of panderers. The
pillars of this degenerate institution have
become too fiirmly fixed to be'.fcorn down
destroyed by ordinary legislation. The
canse has become an obstinate, if uot al
arming .one, and only the severest rstraini
will gever its pertinacious huld upon iveak
humanity. Blind zeal if uot an evil iteclf
is productive of evil results of worst charac
ter, which fact is made plain, we think by
a at the rotten intntions of Mormon
ism. And if the suppression of a great evil
is conducive to the welfare and seemly be
havior of a state or nation, why dally long
er about this wholesome sacrifice of virture
honor, principle and common decency? The
government in its great solicitude for ihe
welfare and protection of religious liberty,
has tolerated this inexcusable depredation
too long. Because the vile practice of poly
gamy is mantled with the false cloak of wor
ship, is only another and better reason why
it should be suppressed. If severe, measures
must be instituted to restrain it, we cannot
see any policy in delaying the matter. On
the contrary, to delay longer what is so es
sential to the common laws of propeicty, is
we believe, to forget our national pride, and
loose prestige in the eyes of all civilization.
