OFFICIAL PAPER FOR BENTON COuNTY
The Republicans in Nebraska made
a gain of ten thousand.
In New York the Republicans
erased the last year's Democratic ma
jority. Nearly a million dollars in gold bars
and coin was received a short time ago
at New York from Europe.
The Washington Territory House
unanimously passed a bill to restrict
Mr. Payne, aged 72, is said "to have
the best chances for being the next
democratic U. S. senator from Ohio.
Ben Butler talks a great deal about
his recent defeat to believe as he pre
tends that he sees indications for his
future political success.
Hoadley has now become a Demo
cratic necessity, for they claim that
with him they can carry Ohio, but in
1884 with National issues they will as
usual realize that delusion to be false.
We learn that Hon. M. C. George,
intends to introduce a bill at this ses
sion of Congress, which, if it passes
both houses, will place Alaska under
civil government. A good bill.
A correspondent of the Wall Street
Daily News estimates that sixty per
cent of the Oregon Railway and Navi
gation Companies net earnings for the
year will fall short of its promised ten,
per cent dividends on stock $772,896.
The $10,000,000 express company
of the Northern Pacific appears to
have been abandoned, says the Wall
Street Daily News. A dispatch from
Sioux City says : "At an early day
Wells Fargo & Co. will take charge of
the express business on the entire
Northern Pacific line. The Northern
Pacific has heretofore done its own
Investigation in Washington, D. C

colored man whose business was gath

The Bourbons of Virginia were so
hard pressed by Mahone, who is not a
Republican but is an anti-Pourbon,
that the color line was closely drawn,
the shot gun policy was revived, color
ed citizens were terrorized and pre
vented from voting and in that way the
Bourbons were saved. The bar
barious and uncivilized feature of Dem
ocratic policy to some extent indi
cates what course will be adopted to
carry a solid south in the presidential
contest next year.
Our English cousins are becoming
somewhat particular in regard to their
investments in American securities.
A few years ago any sort of a smart
talking Yankee could go over there
with the plan of a ship canal across
the Rocky Mountains and dispose of
all the stock which could be hauled
on a dray, but times have changed.
A Boston man went to London four
months ago to dispose of shares in his
narrow-gauge underground railroad,
from the Hub city to Galveston, but
returned the other day sad and discon
solate. Ail he wanted was a capital
of $500,000,000, and he was ready to
give his word for a semi-annual divi
dend of six per cent., but English cap
italists refused to put up a dollar.
Even when he showed them a prelim
inary survey of the route, which settled
the fact that the road would run
through no less than six great oil basins
and graze a hundred coal deposits,
they leaned back and replied :
"Yes, hi'it's h'all werry plausible,
you know, but there's the Grand Irunk
h'and the Northern Pacific, h'and the
Erie, h'and the Denver, h'and the
Reading, h'and the Wabash, h'and a
matter of h'about fifty silver mines
that we'd like to 'ear from h'in the
way of dividends first" Ex.
Here now, we have it the newspa
per! Wonderful product of the brain
and toil! One would think that it should
be dearly bought and highly prized,
and yet it is cheapest thing in the
world, says an Exchange. One to five
cents will buy it; one to two dollars
will bring it to your home every week
in the year. And yet, strange to say,
there are men "too poor to take a
newspaper. They can pay five cents
for a glass of beer, or ten cents for a
beverage of unknown composition, call
ed a "cocktail;" they can pay a half of a
dollar for a circus ticket, or twenty
five cents for the theatre, but they are
too poor to buy a newspaper, which
is a ticket of admission to the great
Globe Theater; whose dramas were
written by God Himself, "whose scene
shifter is Time, and whose curtains are
rung down by death." It is not neces
sary to speak of mighty responsibilities
which necessary attach to the control
of such a power in the land as the
newspaper is to-day, nor to say that
the editor who rightly apprehends the
importance of his work must bring to
it a reverent spirit ana a constant care.
The humblest sheet in the land goes
into some homes as the only authorita
tive messenger from the great world
outside; its opinions are accepted as
fruth, and its suggestions have the
force of law. Theeditor stands on the
widest pulpit known in modern society.
' The lawyer has a narrow sphere be
fore him; the Senator and the Repre
sentative the walls hedge in their
voices; the minister has the parish
walls about his church. But there is
a pulpit that has no limit it is the
press. It is, literally, the voice of one
that cries in the wilderness; for, all
across the populous land the papers
speak; and there is not in modern civ
ilization a place or power that can com
pare with this." Rev. DeWLt Tal-
masre once said: "In the clanking of
the printing press, as the sheets fly
out, 1 hear the voice of the Lord Al
mighty, proclaiming to all the dead
nations of the earth: 'Lazarus, come
forth!' and to (the retreating surges of
darkness: 'let there be liht!' "
DOWNFALL OP THE VILLARD STOCKS.
There is something intensely ludic
rous about the decline in the prices
of the Villard stocks which cannot fail
to be noted everywhere outside of
Wall street, says the Wall Street Daily
News. By his shrewd devices, solid
companions, and good luck in starting
his stock gambling at the beginning of
a boom, he managed to sell out the
larger part of his stuff, and left banks
and money-lenders with what had oth
When the mania for securities in
the "banana belt" had somewhat sub
sided, holders who had bought out
right, and those who had been left
with stuff by loaning money upon it,
were in common straits, and began to
inquire into the value of what they
were possessed of. They discovered
that they had embarked in a gamble
of the simon purest character, and
that the most of the stocks which they
were saddled with would be dear at
the price of Sutro. Lanre numbers cf
the victims were seriously crippled by
their mistaken confidence in Villard
and cases are numerous where the
possessors of fortunes were obliged to
sell out their homes and take their
families to live at hotels and ordinary
boarding houses. Some Have actually
been reduced to the condition of
tramps, having lost every dollar they
While the larger part of the people
who bought the Villard stocks were
reduced to such straits as we have in
dicated, many of them being actually
homeless, Villard himself is building
one of the most magnificent mansions
of modern times, a wonder of archi
tecture and costly decoration, even
outrivaling that of Mr. Wm. H. Van
derbilt. He entertains, at enormous
cost, princely ambassadors, and brings
shiploads of titled personages to wit
ness the work which has been wrought
by money subscribed in blind confi
dence, and which can never be got
holding the situation with the shot gun,
can turn all of its campaign efforts to
ward Northern States. It must be re
membered however that a solid south
will also bring a solid north. The fact
that the Democratic party has not pre
sented any new idea since it aban
doned the "lost cause" except to
scramble for the spoils of office, is a
sufficient reason why it shall and will
One of the main pointers in the
coming National conflict is the Dem
ocratic expectations of a solid south.
The Mississippi plan which was recently
established in Virginia to carry the
election by the shot gun policy has
proven beyond doubt that the idea of
conducting a fair election in any south
ern State is out of the question, and
can not be done under things organ
ized as at present. The solid south
will no doubt be a leading element to
Democratic victory and the party by
"Sol. Center, superintendent of the
Calumet mines, in Union county,
Oregon, has returned home after a
hard summer's work developing this
valuable property, a great portion of
which stock is owned by Walla Walla
citizens, says the Walla Walla States
mat. Mr. Center is a practical miner
of great experience, and is just the
man for such work. The mine is of
copper, carrying much gold and silver.
The ledge is a strong body of solid
quartz, and a drift run across it fifty
two feet has not crossed . the ledge.
Work is suspended for the winter,
owing to the snow. Ordinary assays of
the ore yields $50 per ton in gold
and silver, and from 10 to 60 per cent
in copper. Picked specimens go as
high as $250 per ton. The mine is so
advantageously situated that the ore
can literally be quarried out, and
when opened a thousand stamp mill
can be kept running day and night
with the greatest ease. There is
plenty of timber and water adjacent,
and the other facilities for inexpensive
working are second to none. The
formation of the country is very favor
able and belongs to the granite family,
and is highly mineralized. As soon
as spring opens work will be com
menced in good earnest and a fifteen
stamp mill will be erected, with rotary
furnace and amalgamator. The ore is
extremely free milling and can be
worked at an expense of one dollar
per ton, and with a large 200 ton
stamp mill can be reduced at forty
cents per ton. There is no sign in the
ledge body of any refractory base
metal, such as antimony, arsenic, black
jack, iron or lead. Everything is con
ducted in the most economical and
businesslike manner. The manage
ment have placed the property on a
perfectly sound business footing, dis
couraging all speculative tendencies,
and with this in view will start in with
a small mill until it has earned the
large one that in two years will occupy
"If an architect and builder should
say to a man who wanted a fine build
ing put up, that he never used line,
level, plumb, square, or rule, he prob
ably wouldn't get the job even of the
most ignorant. But it is no more ab
surd to attempt to frame a fine build
ing without the use of the proper tools,
then to attempt to make uniformly
fine butter or cheese without the use
of the thermometer. But that is the
way the most of ten cent and shilling
butter is made. The mass of the but
ter sold goes for half price, year in and
yea- out, and at all seasons of the year,
largely caused by being churned at
the wrong temperature, by persons too
stingy or too stupid to invest thirty
cents for a good thermometer. A va
riation of five degrees from the stan
dard spoils, or greatly injures, either
butter or cheese, while it is common to
not guess within ten or fifteen degrees,
when feeling the temperature with the
hand. The unconscious condition of
the body, and the state of the atmos
phere, and our exposure to great heat
or cold, ?eads even e::peits astray.
Unlike most men, a thermometer nev
er lies. And unlike most men, when
it does lie, it lies only a very
and does but little harm."

SATED HI f,M DOLLARS.
Adamb, N. Y., Jan 30, 1883.
Dr. B. J.Kendall & Co, Gents:- Having- used a
good deal of your Kendall's Spavin Cure with great
success, I thought I would let you know what it l.as
done for me. Two years ago 1 had as speedy a colt
as was ever raised in Jefferson county. When I was
breaking him, he kicked over the cross bar and got
fast and tore one of his hind legs all to pieces. I
employed the best ferriers, but they all said he was
spoiled. He had a very large thorough-pin, and I
used two bottles of your Kernuall's Spavin Cure, and
it took the bunch entirely off, and he sold afterwards
for $1800 (dollars). 1 have used it for bone spavins
and wind gatts, and it has always cured complete,
and left the leg smooth.
It is a splendid medicine for rheumatism. I have
recommended it to a trood i.iany, and thev all say it
does the work. J was in Withcrington &, Kneeland's
drug store, in Adams the other day and saw a very
fine picture you sent them. I tried to buy it but
could not; they said if I would write to you that you
would send me one. I wish you would and I will do
you all the good I can.
Very Respectfully, E. S. LYMAN.
From the Akron Commerci
al, Ohio, Nov. 25, 1882.
Readers of the Commercial can not well forget
that a large space has for years been taken up by
Kendall's advertisement especially of a certain
Spavin Cure. v e have bad dealings with Dr. Ken
dall for many years, and the truth is fully and faith
ullv nmnm notonlv that he is a irood holiest man.
and that bis celebrated Spavin Cure is not only all
that it is recommended to be, hut that the English
lamruaire.is not eanable of recommending too highly.
Kendall's Spavin Cure will cure spavins. There
are hundreds of cases in which that has been proven
to our certain "knowledge, but, after all, if any person
confines the usefulness of this celebrated medicine
to curing spavins alone, they make a big mistake.
It is the best r. cdicine known as an outward applica
tion for rheumatism in the human family. It is good
for pains and aches, swellincs and lameness, and is
just as safely applied to men, women and children
as it is to horses. We know that there are other
good linaments. but we do believe this spavin cure to
be far better than anv ever invented.

B. J. Keddall &Co , Gents: While in the employ
of O. C. Hastings, the well known horseman of San
Francisco, in the year ending 1880, we had a young;
horse two vears old that contracted a bone spavin and
seeingryour liniment known as Kendall's Spavin Cure
advertised, upon my own responsibility I commenced
using it and within thirty days from that time and
after having used only three bottles the spavin was
removed entirely, and therefore 1 naturally have th
utmost confidence in its merits. 1 do not hesitate to
recommend it to all who have occasion to use the
medicine ard should any one desire to confer with
me 1 shall be glad to answer any communication
relating to the case in question.

Messrs. J. B. Kendall & Co.. Gents: Throuirh the
recommendation of a friend about a year ago, J was
induced to erive .vour Kendall's Spavin Cure a ril
and I am pleased'to say that I was fully satisfied with
the results. 1 used it in several instances upon
splints, which after a few app.ications were entirely
removed. I also used it on a spavin with the same
results. The medicine has grown in popularity in
this vicinity in the past few months and what is
said here to-day I believe is put out upon Its merits.
