thereof to some friend or neighbor who is not taking

At the same time invite their attention to the fact
that the Qazktte contains a greater variety of and
more reading matter, including local, editorial, tele
graphic, general news and miscellaneous, fireside and
aniily reading than any other paper published in
Oiegon. To all persons who receive sample copieB of
the Gazette, we ask to read and examine it carefully
a id decide if they can afford to do without it when a
piper containing so much interesting reading can be
obtained for the small sum of two dollars and fifty

place it is because it is needed, and it is bought where
he best article can be had for the money. So you
should subscribe for your paper, because you need it

Youaubscribe you should get the one that is the best
and the most valuable to you for your meney.
We propose to furnish to all desiring, the best

"Blaine and Victory."
Washington, June 14. The serious
manner in which the democrats are casting
about for candidates here indicates that
they appreciate the desperate chance they
have of success in the coming presidential
election. The "hurrah" talk that followed
the first news of a probable independent
bolt in New York and Massachusetts has
quieted down since it was seen that the
people attempting to get up the independent
move did not amount to anything; that they
were weak in numbers and of small inftu
encn, and that the masses, rank and file of
the republican party, were enthusiastic in
support of the ticket. A week ago the
democrats in Washington were boasting of
their ability to carry not only New York
but Massachusetts and other New England
states; now they are looking over the list
of would-be candidates to find a man who
can keep in column the heretofore certain
democratic states, and at the same time
have a fighting chance in New York. It is
the prevailing opinion among the democratic
members of congress that the candidate
must come from New York, and while that
state is not at all unprolific in candidates,
but two Cleveland and Flower are
thought to have any chance of securing the
nomination. While there has been very
little serious talk of Flower up to the pres
ent the belief is gaining ground that when
the New York state convention meets
Flower will be found to have sufficient in
Hueuce in the convention to defeat Cov
entor Cleveland, and perhaps get enough
votes in the convention to nominate him,
bat Cleveland's friends believe that Flower
is surrounded by a gang who are willing
and ready to shout for him as long as it is
to their interest to do so, but will desert
him the moment they see that he has no
real strength outside of what they have
' The news from California and Texas that
the democratic conventions of these states
had, after Tilden's letter of declination,
adopted resolutions in favor of Thurman,
gave the latter some promise. In discussion
of presidential candidates, every democrat
bad a good word to say for Thurman, but
the general opinion was that it would not do
to make the tight in Ohio. Members gen
erally expressed a belief that the nomina
tion of an Ohio man would be to challenge
tbe republican claim in that state, and if
Ohio should go republican in October it
would put a damper on the democrats in
Good Crops In Texas.
Galveston, June 16. The News this
morning publishes exhaustive crop reports
from over seventy-five agricultural counties
of the state. From the nature of the re
ports it is impossible to compile figures
showing the yield of wheat, bat a careful
review of the statements of 200 correspond
ents shows that this year's wheat and corn
crop in Texas bids fair to surpass the yield
of 1882, the heaviest in the history of the
state. Farmers are now in the midst of
wheat harvest. The exceeding warm
weather of the past fifteen days has been
very beneficial to crops.
The Postoffice Bill.
Washington, June 14' The house to
day concluded action on the report of the
conference committee on the postoffice
appropriation bill. Of twenty-two amend
ments to the bill adopted by the senate, the
conference committee agreed to accept but
five, namely, to increase the appropriation
for the payment of letter carriers and the
incidental expenses of free delivery; to
strike out the section of the bill which au
thorizes the postmaster general to readjust
the compensation to be paid railroad com
panies for mail transportation, by reducing
the compensation 5 per cent, per annum; to
increase the appropriation for inland mail
transportation from $ 11,700,000 to $12,000,-
000; to provide for necessary and special
facilities on trunk lines, $18,000,000, and to
increase the appropriation for the payment
of railway postoffice clerks from $4,000,000
The amendment which created the most
discussion was the appropriation for contin
uing the fast mail. As the bill passed the
house no appropriation was made for that
purpose, but in the senate an amendment
was adopted appropriating $185,000 for
special facilities on trunk lines, This the
conference members, on the part of the
house, refused to agree to. The house,
however, took a different view of the matter
from that taken by the committee, and not
only accepted the senate amendment but
increased the appropriation to $2o0,000, ind
southern and western members voted solidly
in favor of this provision of the bill. By its
adoption the postoffice department will be
enabled to continue the fast mail service,
which is of great use to the west and the
south, as jhey have direct mail communi
cation with New York, Philadelphia, Boston
and other large cities at least twelve hours
faster than they would have were the sys
tem of fast maris discontinued.
Budd Declines Be-nomination.
Washington, June 15. Some days be
fore the recent meeting of the California
democratic convention at Stockton, Bep
resentative Budd, of the second congression
al district, by letter, declined reuomination.
During the session of the convention he de
clined by telegraph, but it appears he was
nominated by acclamation, and that no at
tention was paid to his reported refusal to
make another canvass of the second district.
In conversation to-day, and in response to a
question whether he should insist on his
declination, Budd said: "At present I don't
think anything will induce me to accept
this nomination. Of course I feel grateful
for the favor of the nomination by acclama
tion, and for the confidence which the peo
ple thereby show in me, but in the present
condition of my health I could not serve, if
I could be elected without an effort to the
next congress. I have asked the second
district convention to appoint a committee
to confer with me, and then I will explain
that I cannot possibly accept the place on
the ticket. If I did accept I should have to
work, and I cannot work."
The truth is Mr. Budd, in his now famous
buckboard canvass of two years ago, nearly
destroyed his health, and it is boubtful if
he will ever recover, being under a doctor's
care ever since he came to Washington. He
has been advised by several physicians to
quit politics at once. Henley, who regrets
Bodd's declination, had advised him to take
such a course, on the ground, as he said
some days ago, that he probably would not
live through another hot canvass. Budd's
idea is that the Second district convention,
believing Blaine'S nomination would require
some extra work this year, and recollecting
his desperate fight against Page two years
ago, put him on the ticket, to seenre a rep
etition of that performance. '
It is stated privately by other members of
the delegation that Budd is greatly
chugrim d at the defeat of Sumner and Tully
in San Fr tncisco. He, as well as they, re
gards the failure to nominate them as a
reflection on their course by a large body of
the party in California, as they have been
practically united on all questions. Several
free tr;ide papers in the east point to Sum
ner's defeat as an indication that California
is not united on the tariff question, and
that the recent vote on the Morrison bill
would seem to indicate the party having
refused to nominate prominent followers of
Randall. Sumner has explained to, the
democratic leaders what the influences really
were that defeated him.
Iron Mills Closing Down.
Easton, Pa., June 16. The depression in
the iron trade causes a falling off of orders
for ore from the mines. In Williams' town
shp, Northampton county, which supplies
the Glendon iron furnaces, this morning the
mines of Sampson, Meriwaith, Bennett and
others were shut down. A large number of
men are out of employment. Hahn's mines
and several others have reduced from 85 to
100 tons per week.
Too Much Oil.
Philadelphia, June 16. The extremely
low price of oil has compelled the oil pro
ducers of this state to make a vigorous at -tempt
to decrease the production. An asso
ciation has been organized, and canvassers
are busy throughout the oil districts to get
signers to an agreement to suspend drills for
six months. If three-fourths are agreed
tbe shot-down will begin next Thursday.
EDITED BY THE W. C. T. U.
Declaration of principles,
And plans of work adopted by the State
W. C. T. U. at their annual convention.
As we look over the wonderful years
since the crusade, and see the one hundred
thousand noble women who compose the
army of W. C. T. U. workers, we feel that
God indeed had a meauing when he poured
out his spirit upon the daughters of the
land, and daily we should consecrate our
selves anew to the work. Knowing that
what ought to be, will be in God's own
time, we therefore respectfully submit the
following declarations of principles:
With full trust in the power and assist
ance of Almighty God, and realizing that
the use of alcoholic liquor and other forms
of intemperance including the use of tobacco,
morphine and opium, is among the greatest
evils in our midst, therefore we pledge our
selves to use our influence to banish the
same from our land.
2. Believing that fermented wine used
for sacramental purpose is neither com
manded or sanctione 1 by divine authority,
and has proven a stumbling block to many
a weak brother, therefore we will use our
influence to banish the intoxicating cup from
the Lord's table, and we respectfully urge
each local Union to carry out the plans in
that line of work as adopted by the National
3. As the hope of the church and the
nation rests upon its children we will do
our utmost to give them thorough Biblical
and Scientific temperance instruction, that
their way may be clear to useful and hon
Recognizing the powerful opposition
which is brought to bear against all our
efforts, yet realizing that God is ever with
us, we should prayerfully consider the very
best methods of work. Feeling that our
main object is to relieve our land from the
curse of intemperance, in order to do this,
our work must be kind, charitable, prac
tical, free from all party, sect or classes, so
that good people of all parties, sect and
classes can aid and assist in this work of
education and reformation. Let onr work
be so distinguished by those crowning at
tributes of the woman, wife, aud mother,
constancy, unselfish devotion and loving
kindness, that the shafts of antagonism and
prejudice can find no lodgment. In this
way we shall sap the foundation of the
liquor traffic, disarm criticism and cultivate
a good healthy public sentiment, anil we
may rest assured that when public senti
ment is correctly developed prohibitory law
will as surely appear on the statute books
as the rising sun heralds the dawn, and our
bountiful laud shall indeed become a peace
ful home, where all may dwell secure trom
the ravages of strong drink and its attend
ant evils. To promote this cause we would
heartily recommend the national leaflet
published by the N. W. C. T. U., for plans
of work for 1884, as a basis for our work
again this year, continuing those depart
ments taken up last year, also a few others
1st. As an ounce of prevention is worth
a pound of cure, we believe more attention
should be given to the study of God's laws
of health, with a view of returning sanity
in our ways of living, and to this end would
have the department of hygenie and sup
pression of the social evil added to that of
2nd. That every local Union should be
untiring in its efforts to push on the petitions
for scientific instruction.
3rd. That juvenile work should be given
4th. That our Literature department
should be put into hands that would see to
it that Oregon is "sown knee deep with
temperance literature," aud we would in
clude in this department the work of "sup
pression of impure literature."
5th. That a Supt. be appointed to work
6th. Press work should never be neg
lected, for in this channel very great gooil
can come. Particular attention should be
paid to the press in our larger cities and
7th. The department of Intemperance in
relation to capital and labor, should be
added to that of Relative Statistics.
8th. A Supt. should be appointed to
make special efforts to overthrow the
tobacco and opium habits. This should be
vigorously carried on, for tobacco is one of
the most costly absurdities the world ever
saw. The frightful extent to which this
pernicious practice prevails at the present
day is unprecedented by anything to be
had in the annals of recorded time.
Tobacco meets us on every corner; we
must battle against; it our boys must be
saved from the narcotic poisons.
9th. Flower or mission day should be
more generally followed. m
10th. That the Supt. of young women's
work should be one who could devote some
time in going from one place to another
thoroughly enlisting onr young ladies in
the work for in them lies the , future of the
W. C. T. U. Let us all labor earnestly to
gether in towarding this work that through
its means the gospel of truth and love,
temperance and sobriety may be carried
more fully into human hearts. Let every
member of the W. C. T. U. feel a personal
responsibility resting upon her in working
for "God and Home and Native Land."

New York Jure 16. The Chinese con
sul here addressed three hundred of his
countrymen at the Fourteenth street Pres
byterian church yesterday. Previously
8 3V. Dr. KUen wood said there were more
than 100,000 Chinamen in the United States;
they were a peaceable, industrious and gen
erous class, and anxious to learn the lan
guage of the people among whom they lived
and however politeness might feel toward
them, the church was resolved to show that
it represented something other than the
typical hoodlum and American feeling to
ward them, as portrayed by the brickpats of
Irish Catholics of the Pacific coast. He
hoped Christianity would become a religion
of the Chinese. Rev. Marsters preached
for half an hour in Chinese. Some of the
Chinese scholars laughed aloud several times
at the missionary's remarks. San Francisco
was tbe only English words heard in the
sermon. Joseph Bassett, president of the
Chinese Sunday School Union, announced
that the object of the union was to evan
gelize the Chinese in this city and Brooklyn.
It has twenty-one Chinese Sunday schools.
The consul stood up and spoke to his coun
trymen in their own language, and then
gave Rev. Marster's written translation of
his remarks, which were read in English.
The consul said that he was gratified at the
interest evinced in the welfare of his coun
trymen in New York, and trusted that they
would appreciate what was being done for
them. He advisecLtheni to shun opium and
gambling, and badafcociations, and to go to
Sunday school. He subscribed $40 to the

feels inclined to hold the report for the
present at least, and may conclude to order
