FRIDAY MORNING, FEB. 27, I860.
Through the efforts of Hon. M. C.
George the senate bill in relation to
Umatilla Indian Reservation passed
the house on the 24th inst. The bill
had previously passed the senate, but
as there were some amendments in the
house, it requires further action by the
senate. This will open for settlement
a zry rich and valuable tract of land.
The state legislature of Georgia has
passed a law which, in effect, bieaks up
the carrying of concealed weapons in
that state. A tax of $100 is levied
upon every place of business where
they are sold, and, rather than pay it,
the merchants give up keeping them.
o that the places wbeie arms can be
purchased are only " limited, and the
replenishing of cartridges are exceed
Beeeher was announced to lecture at
Chickering Hall, New York, recently.
One hundred persons assembled to bear
him, but the reverend gentlemen con
cluding that empty benches bad no
ears, refunded the admission money
and dismissed the audience. Here is
evidently a strong instance of a man
outliving his usefulness. It would
have been better for Beeeher to have
died when young when the gods loved
him, than to have lingered superfluous
ly. The eloquent divine who electri
fied the nation during the war of the
rebellion; is forgotten in the gibbering
old man who supported Cleveland for
the presidency. News.

democratic proclivities in the Oregon
Senate at Salem, last Friday night, in
an enraged condition made at Senator
Simon, from Multnomah county, be
cause Simon was endeavoring to get a
resolution voted on to rescind a former
one to adjourn, when at the same time
Bilyeu and two or three other demo
crats were filibustering in order to kill
time and keep Simon's resolution from
being voted upon. Bilyeu finding that
Simon had outwitted him, became en
raged and started to carry the thing
with a kind of bull-dog force in ac
cordance with the sonthern democratic
idea of deciding right and wrong.
The feeling of hopefulness that pre
vails in Eastern business circles is
gaining ground day by day. An in
creased activity is said to exist, more
especially in the iron trade, which
leads the markets, in the lower grades
ot cotton and woolen goods, and in coal
and hides. The stocks in the hands of
retail dealers have been so reduced,
owing to the limited purchases which
they have made under the recent de
pressed condition of business, that they
are generally in the market as buyers,

The failure of the legislature at Sa
lem to elect a United States Senator
is surely an unfortunate one for the
people at large. Senators and repre
sentatives from all counties throughout
the state were sent to the Capital,
among other things, with the great and
important duty entrusted to then-
charge of electing a United States Sen
ator. This important duty they did not
perforin, hence it would lead one to
suppose that the legislature had failed
to do its duty. Where the fault lies
in this failure is another question which
is vei-y difficult to solve, or more par
ticularly does the difficulty seem to be
when we attempt to fasten the blame
down upon any one, or faction of the
legislature. While the result thus far
seems deplorable, yet it certainly ought
to and should teach all factions a very
important lesson in this "that a house
divided against itself must fall," and
that perfect harmony is the all import
ant condition of affairs which has in
itself the primary tendency of accom
plishing all great things. The lesson
will most certainly teach all concerned
that Multnomah county cannot name
i senator or carry out other important
political matters without the co-operation
of the other sections of the State.
On the other hand it certainly teaches
other sections of the State that they
cannot elect a senator and carry out
the political workings desired without
consulting and securing the co-opera
tion of Multnomah county. All good
republicans having the welfare of the
entire. State at heart must necessarily
recognize the great and. supreme im
portance of securing and maintaining
perfect harmony. This harmony is
the only stepping stone to any great
success. Factional fights, no matter
what section is responsible for it, has
its ultimate and only tendency in dis
organization and defeat as a final re
sult. The only way to secure the
perlect harmorfy so much desired is for
each section or county to give to
each other locality and take in a friend
ly and brotherly way and not for one
section to move off with all the most
desired things in the public pot and
endeavor by pressure to force sister
counties to do or take something which
is a displeasure to them. When we
view the whole State of Oregon upon
that higher plane where we can see
and realize that all parts and sections
of the State form a complete whole
and that without any of its parts the
State is incomplete. The next sugges
ion leads one to add that in order to pros
per as one State, each of its parts or
sections should act in perfect harmony
and accord with every other part; to
do this we must have a good feeling
and the sensibilities of distrust which
in years past have absorbed the feel
ings of different localities should be
put at rest, and the most powerful and
influential sections of the State should
not use their power for selfish ends,
but should carefully guard her weaker
and less noted sisters and should help
them to get some of their desires and
especially their dues, because it was
their due. Many things during the
past several years have led to this
state of affairs, and to say that one
locality is whclly to blame and that
the other faction is blameless, is to say
too much. It is sufficient to say that
such a condition of affairs and feelings
of distrust has seized hold of different
parts of our State, and that such con
dition of affairs is all wrong. This
condition of feelings is not alone with
republicans but the same feeling ex
ists in democratic circles. As a great
State, and in order to make ourselves
prosper and grow with the great nation
of states, it is the duty of every good
republican to advise harmony of action
and the most friendfy feelings between
different parts of the State. And it
is also the duty of every good republi
can to do all in his power to bring
about hannony, good feeling, and re
store confidence as fast as possible.
What Portland or Multnomah county
has done in the past or what other
sections of the State have done is not
necessary to discuss for purposes of
future welfare, providing all sections
can and will determine upon the plan
of all working friendly and harmoni
ously together. There are many
things which have led up to this con
dition of discord, confusion and dis
trust which might be discussed profit
ably in connection herewith, but space
will not permit until some other time.
We confidently hope and believe that
when the republican party in Oregon
become to understand all factions and
find themselves willing to discuss the
difficulties which have led to discord,
with the view of meeting the wants
and necessities of all so far as to be
able to procure harmony and good
feelmg, that the republican party will
then have become stronger and more
powerful for the accomplishment of
good than ever before.
We are under obligations to Senator
T. E. Cauthorn for public documents
One of the great causes which led
the last legislature up to the deplorable
condition where they failed to elect a
United States Senator is found in the
fact that so many of the members of
the legislature thought perhaps light
ning might by some possibility strike
them, and hence there was no caucus
held nor any attempt at organization
or concentration by the opposing fac
tions. For a wise purpose a provision
is engrafted in our state constitution
in the legislative department in the
following words, to-wit: "No senator
or representative shall, during the time
for which he may have been elected be
eligible to any office, the election to
which is vested in the legislative as
sembly; nor shall be appointed to any
civil office of profit which shall have
been created, or the emoluments of
which shall have been increased dur
ing such term, but this latter provision
shall not be construed to any officer
elective by the people." This pro
vision shows unmistakably that the
framersof our constitution intended
in unmistakable terms that the mem
bers of our legislature should not be
placed under circumstances where de
sire for official position from the votes
of their fellow legislators could inter
fere with the course of legislation or
put them where there might be an in
ducement to barter matters of legisla
tion for votes to elect them to pos -tion.
This provision' of the constitu
tion as plainly as language can,
forbids any member of the legislature
during his term of office from running
for United States Senator. Hence,
with this view of the whole affair it
was contrary to the spirit and plain
provision of our constitution for any
member of the legislature at the last
session to vote for Hirsch , Hare, Car
son, Weatherford, Davenport, Bilyeu,
Prim, Waldo, Keady, or any others of
that body. The reason for the- pro
vision of the constitution alluded to
and why it should be strictly enforced
is plain to every one after reflection,
because while it was possible for an
election to fall upon' any member of
the legislature it was to their interests
to discourage any attempts at organi
zation of their forces upon any one
man for fear that such organization
would not result in concentrating upon
them, and hence organization they
viewed perhaps as detrimental to their
own interests in each individual case,
and worked without organization,
scattered the entire session on the
senatorial question like an old rusty
shot gun, wide of the mark, and
wholly failed in the most important
duty of the whole session. The result
is to be much regretted, and yet it
cannot be helped at this time, but for
the benefit of the future if men elected
to the legislature so far forget them
selves as to permit their candidacy for
position before that body, which the
constitution forbids, the next legisla
ture should pass a law making it offen
sive for a legislator to be a candidate
for office through the election by the
legislature, or else to pass a law pre
venting members from voting for their
fellow legislators for such positions.
It somehow' seems that if those
who so strenuously opposed the elec
tion of Hirsch had early in the session
organized and concentrated their
efforts on George H. Williams, B.. P.
Earhart, Governor Moody or some
other good staunch republican, that
an election might have been made and
it will always be the regret that such
organization was not made early in the
