Cat. The delinquent tax list occupies fif

which was lucky enough, to secure its pub

has been well protected bv the snow, which
melts no faster than the earth can absorb it.
This enhances the prospect of a lull crop
the coming year.
Mrs. Laura Wilson, on trial in San Fran

Jacksonville people boast of spending
$25,000 in building improvements within
the past year, the brick buildings in the
I urnt discrict and improvement in the flour

A considerable amount of real estate has
passed into the hands of immigrants in
Linn county during the past few weeks.
During the past week $25,000 has been

iau. It is stated that the Northern Pacific will
lie completed to Ellensburg by April 1st
and that connection will be made with Ta
coma in October. The temporary road over
the Cascades will be in the form of a Z, or
similar to that used during the construction
of the Bozeman tunnel.
Concerning the proposed new building for
the state university, for which $30,000 has
been appropriated by the legislature, the
Eugene Guard says: "The building will be
a two-story brick structure, with basement,
of very handsome design. The first floor
will be used as an auditorium, while the
second will be divided up into class rooms.
Plans will be ordered immediately, and the
contract will be let as soon as possible. The
whole work will be under the supervision of
the Board of Regents. The building was
badly needed, and our people appreciate the
action of the legislature in so promptly
passing the measure."
After the legislature had been in session
forthirty-eight days, its committee oa elec
tions was at last enabled to report on the
L lughlin-Burch contested election case,
recommending that Burch hold his seat.
Inasmuch as Burch has held it so far, it
would not have been much satisfaction to
Laughliu if they had reported in his favor
and given him a seat among the solons for
the last two days. The testimony written
out in long hand makes 800 folios, or 80,
000 words, and covens 500 pages of legal
ctp. It is made np in three bound books.
There were about 125 witness examined,
and fifteen days taken up in the examina
tion. It will cost the state about 82200.
Salem is troubled just now with a great
deal of sickness of the malarial type. Why
is this? It is the fault of bad drainage, and
siothing else. Which is better, to pay
, from $10,000 to $20,000 annually in doctor's
bills, or to pay a less amount in draining
the streets, and thereby prevent disease?
The latter, of course. The medicine taken
after one becomes sick is not so effective as
prevention. ISo one eoejd expect anything
but sickness with the streets full of slimy,
.stagnant water; and when spring opens, and
the rains cease, it will be a thousand times
worse. The healthiest cities are those
where cleanliness and drainage is well at-
.tended to. Tribune.
The new county established east of the
.John Day river is named after Col. Gilliam,
who a.-cidently shot and killed himself in
that region in the year 1848, at the close of
the Caynse war. Gilliam county contains
bout 46 townships of fine agricultural and
grazing land. The land is mostly the bunch
grass table land, of easy cultivation, and
produces from 35 to 40 bushels of wheat to
the acre. The principal trading points are
Alkali and Fossil, but other towns are
springing up rapidly, such as Condon, Clam
Olex, Eight Mile, and Rock point. Ad
joining Gilliam county on the east side of
Marrow county, carved mainly out of Uma
tilla, with Heppner as the principal town
and county seat. This county is named
after Captain Jack Marrow, a member of
the Legislatures from Umatilla. The prin
cipal settlement ia both these counties has
been made within the last three years, ex
ceeding anything of the kind known in
the history of the state. Statesman.
The depression in the wool tra le is driv
ing some of the Coos and Curry county
flock-masters out of the business.
Wheat shippers offer to advance 20 cents
on a bushel on next season's crop, to Walla
Walla farmers, which was not offered last
Citizens of Ashland tender a splendid
building and grounds there to the State, to
be kept and used as a normal school.
Reports from all parts of Coos and Curry
county agree that this has been an extraor
dinarily good weather for live stock in that
section of Oregon. While they have had an
unusual amount of rain, there has not been
sufficient frost to check the growth of grass.
Major Jones of the United States Engi
neer Corps, will soon leave Portland with
a force of men to survey Priest's Rapids on
the Columbia river, an appropriation of
$6,000 having been made for that purpose.
The Priest's rapids are on the Colombia
river about 200 miles above The Dalles,
and extend a distance of 1 1 miles.
General work on the locks and canal at
the Cascades has been resumed for some
time. During the continuance of the heavy
snow storms and very cold weather opera
tions were almost entirely suspended.
About 160 men are now employed at the
government works there, and the force is
being slowly inct eased.
The Second Adventists are at it again.
They are bound to wind up the world some
time. The prophets live at Los Angeles,
California, this time, and place the date at
September 30, 1SS5. The announcement is
made through the columns of a paper called
the Los Angeles Trumpet Call, and the
editor was but lately discharged from the
Stoc'.on Insane Asylum. The Adventists
are at least a persevering set in the matter
Mr. J. H. Stine, formerly editor of the
West Side, which flourished for some time
at Independence, Oregon, proposes to es
tablish himself with a weesily newspaper
at Grants Pass, devoted to the interests of
that section of the state. A bill has just
been passed by the legislature which fixes
the boundary line between Josephine and
Jackson counties, by taking four townships
about sixteen miles of the Rogue river
valley from the latter, and adding to the
former. A second bill provides that the
inhabitants f the entire county of Josephine
thus created, shall have 'the right to vote at
the next June election for the county seat.
There is little doubt but that Grant's Pass
will receive a majority of the votes. Mr.
Stine will be the pioneer publisher of Jose
phine county, as it has as yet, never had a
newspaper within its boundaries. He says
he has received substantial encouragement
from the people of that section, and be
lieves his new venture will accrue to his
own profit, as well as to that of the coun
try he will represent.
Protection for Newspaper Carriers
Portland carriers held a meeting recently
for the purpose of forming some plan to
protect themselves against dishonest sub
scribers. It is said that persons in that
city will subscribe for a paper, and when
ever the collector come around will keep
putting him off, telling him to "call again."
The collector does "call again" several
times, but never gets his money, and finally
has to stop leaving the paper, having lost
the price of it during the eutire time it has'
been left. The newspaper beat then sub
scribes for another paper, and gets it free
for two or three months more from another
carrier, and so on for six or eight months,
and even a year in some cases. The carriers
hereafter will have one common "black
list," which will have upon it the names of
all the above class of swindlers, and when a
man fails to pay one carrier he will never
get another paper from any of them without
paying in advance.
All doubt as to the senate for the next
four years is removed. The election of Ev-
arts from New York and Teller from Colo
rado insures the republicans a clear majority,
whether the legislature from Illinois respects
the will of the people or not. There are al
ready chosen or to hold over 41 republican
senators out of 76, and the democrats with
out Illinois can get only 34; with the sena
tor from that state they would have only 35.
But it is hoped by republicans throughout
the country that the splendid services of
General Logau will not be ungratefully re
paid by defeat. The people of Illinois gave
a clear majority for tho republican cause,
aud a plurality of over 25,000. To defeat a
republican candidate for senator, either
electing a democrat or depriving the state
of half its representation, would be a wanton
defiance of the popular will. Included in
the list of 41 republican senators are Gener
al Mahone and Riddleberger, who joined
with their associates in formally adopting
the republican name prior to the national
convention, who sought admission to that
body as republicans, and were recognized
and admitted by the convention, and who
heartily supported the republican national
candidates. If without them the republi
cans had not a majority, it is possible that
the bourbon democrats would have been
willing to sacrifice almost anything to secure
the co-operation of the Virginia senators,
though there is no reason to suppose that
any overtures to them would have succeed
ed. But with 39 members, a clear majority
of the senate, besides the two senators from
Virginia, the republicans know what their
opponents have nothing to gain by offering
terms to Mahone and Riddleberger, and
the savage abuse of those senators by demo
cratic organs will therefore continue. The
confirmation of Cleveland's appointments
aud the power to defeat mischievous legis
lation will rest with the republicans of the
senate for two years from March 4, and
After that time they have reason to hope
they will be supported by a republican ma
jority in the house. JT. Y. Tribune.

Education vs. AlconoL
Every one can see the outward effects of
alcohol upon human beings. We know that
those using it to excess usually have bloated
faces, bleared eyes, red noses and many
other disfiguring marks left by the habit.
These are too well known to need enumerat
ing. And it will seem as though these effects
were bad enough to make all wish to put
down the habit. If one could become intox
icated an indefinite number of times and still
recover and oe no worse off mentally, mor
ally or physically, we think the visible effects
ought to be enough to deter all from the use
of alcoholic drinks. But these are only out
ward results from inward effects. There
are many no dojbt that are ignorant of the
laws which govern the organization of the
human system that they think they can take
poison in their systems as often as they like
if they do not kill themselves outright, and
may recover from the effects of it and be
well and strong, and live as long as if they
had never taken it. But educated people
who have studied the physiological effects of
poison upon the human body know that
everything that injures the system injures
the health; that it interferes with the per
son's usefulness and certainly shortens life.
The youth of the past generation and of to
day have been altogether too ignorant as to
the actual effects of alcohol on the body
from a physiological point, we firmly believe
that many people would never have acquired
thejhabit had they been taught in their
youth all these facts.
The temperance people now ask that their
children and the coming generations may be
enlightened on this subject, and taught to
understand their own systems and the effects
of abusing them by the use of stimulants
and narcotics, even as they are taught to
other important branches of knowledge; to
the end that they may learn self government
in order that they may be qualified to ad
minister the affairs of the nation.
Herbert Spencer says: "Knowledge
which subserves self-preservation by pre
venting the loss of health is of primary im
portance." We do not say such a knowl
edge would by any mens wholly remedy
the evil, but that she right knowledge im
pressed in the right way would effect much,
we infer that as vigorous health aud its ac
companying high spirits are larger elements
of happiness than any other things whatever,
the teaching how to maintain them is a
teaching that yields in moment to none
whatever, aud therefore we assert that such
a course of phyisology as is needful in the
comprehension of its general truth, and
their bearings on daily conduct is an all es
sential part of a rational education.
We heartily endorse this with reference
to scientific temperance instructions and to
this end have asked that our legislature
place upou our statute books a law requir
ing that in all schools supported by public
money, instructions be given in physiology
and hygiene with special reference to the
effects of alcoholic drinks, stimulants and
narcotics upon the human system in order
that the children of Oregon may have equal
advantages with those of Vermont, New
Hampshire Michigan, New York and Rhode
Island. Wherein laws have been euacted
makiug such instructions obligatory. We
sincerely hope to see such laws iu full force
all over our state and that right speedily.
