There need be no difficulty in secur ig help at the summer hotels. Al most the entire democratic party are waiters. With the election of Gen. John A. Logan as United States Senator from Illinois, and a republican Senator from OregCn, the Senate will stand fei'fy re publicans and thirty-four democrats. A bill is before the Ohio Legislature providing for punishing the wife beater with public lashing, in addition to fine and imprisonment. It is said fo be strongly supported and the lead-rig journals favor its passage. "Why do Texas lawyers and legis lators always sign petitions to have convicts pardoned out of the penitenti ary?" '"They do it in obedience to the scripture." "What scripture!" "Do unto others as ye would that they shoud do unto you." Texas Sitings. It is related that upon Tony Xolt ner's visit to Washington he was intro duced to President Cleveland by Mr. Slater, with a great deal of ceremony. The ex-senator stated that Tony had been a life-long Democrat, a delegate to the Chicago convention of 1884, and that he was the editor of the leading Democratic journal of Oregon. The President scrutinized Noltner closely, and after the pair had departed, turned to his private secretary and asked: "Lamont, did Slater say that fellow is the editor of the leading Democratic paper of Oregon" "He did, sir," re tponded the secretary. "Then no wonder the state is so heartily Repub lican," observed the President, as he resumed examination of official documents. Ex-Gevernor John Whitaker, has filed his official bond with United States Commissioner Larason as col lector of internal revenue for this dis trict in rheisnm of 875,000 His sur eties are B. Killin, D. P. Thompson, E. S. Kearney, Louis Nicola, John Catin and T. M. Richardson. These sureties were approved by United States District Attorney Watson, and the bond will at once be sent on to Washington to be approved' by the propel officials there, after which the commission will be for varded. Mr. Whiteaker has made arrangements to take charge of the office on the 1st of July. One of the bondsmen informed Si reporter that there were four demc- i sts on the bond, and each of them wrote his own name, or what he al leged to be his name. One of them '.-id he went on the bond because Hon est John would not steal anything, and ii he would there was no chance for him to steal much in this office, and also because now if any one asked him to go on a bond he could say, "I am on one now for $75! 000.

The London correspondent of the Evening Post says: "Almost without warning England is landed in the midst of an acute political cricis, of which no body foresees the end and no one can hardly exaggerate the possible conse quences. For the following facts I can vouch, although every man here has his own opinion. Chamberlain, president ef the board of trade,- and Sir Charles Dilke, president of the local govern ment board, said positively in the cab inet that they would resign rather than support any further measure of coercion for Ireland. After a hot discussion they weae induced by the other minis ters to agree to the renewal, in a very mild i'orm, of the crimes act. In their opinion a measure of local self-government should precede any land purchase scheme, and Gladstone's statement that the government would introduce a land bill later in the session was in advance of any decision of the cabinet to tht effect. I am credibly informed that Sir Charles Diike wa in the Louse of cemmons at the tim Gladstone's state ment was made." New York Tribune. The count has virtually ended, say democratic journals, and after twenty four years of republican rule, everthing that ought to be in the treasury is found to be there, except, possibly, two cents which appear to be missiug from one of the packages. ' Exactly what republicans have for years officially re ported about the condition of the treasur', the new democratic officials find to be its actual condition, all the money that ought to be there, is there Always excepting the possibly lost two cents. This is satisfactory, of course, and it is just what republicans have expected. But what becomes of the venerable campaign lie, used by the democrats in every contest for twenty years, that "millions have been stolen from the treasury." Mr. Manning has the books, which show every transaction since the democrats left Washington in 1871. His very first step was to set some of the best experts in the country go overhaul these books, in or der to know whether there was any mischief concealed, and exactly what amount of money the treasury ought to have on hand. They find I'O error or fraud in the accounts, and new debt Statements are issued, showing to a cent what amount of money, and of each kind of money, the treasury ought to hold. Then one. of th grained ex perts was appointed treasurer, and the vaults were turned over to his custody, and he sets trained accountants to count all the money. They do so, and find that the cash actually held agrees precisely, both in amount and in kind, with the cash that the treasury books show ought to be held always except ing the two cents aforesaid. Now, Messrs. Democrats, it is in or der to thank you for disproving anoth er of your favorite lies, which you have used in every campaign, especial ly in the rual districts. You have taught many people to believe that the treasury has bee'-: systematically robbed for a long time, and that, if democrats could only get control and, in the language of Mr. Hendricks, "let the light of heaven into those vaults," there would be horrible things dis closed. ' Three times elaborate and costly investigations have been under taken, some democratic senator having asserted that he had found traces of fraud, and believed that millions had been stolen. Not a trace of wrong was discovered, but still the falsehood was persistently repeated, and it was said that the officials in charge "con cealed the vast deficiency. At last, Messrs. Democrats, you have the "light of heaven," and an overhauling of the books and a counting of the cash by your own trained experts. And it proves that your leaders have been persistently lying, year after year. It is greatly to the credit of the re publican party that, after all the changes and excitements, the corrup tion and the temptation of twenty-four years of unrestrained power, after the tremendeous financial struggles of the civil war, and the issue of new kinds of currency in vast amounts, the suit proves that the accounts have been absolutely correct; and the guar dianship of the public money absolute ly faithful. In a party point of view, it was well worth the tempoary loss of power consequent upon defeat last fall, to secure this demonstration ef the honesty and fidelity of republican j officials. When republicans came in, j it may le remembered, they found that the treasury had been robbed by Jacob Thompson whom this adminis tration takes pains to honor. The country will not fail to note the contrast. - Says a Washington dispatch: A New York democratic congressman, whose name is withheld, went to the White House some days ago and "gave the president a piece of his mind" on the subject of federal appointments in his district. Among other things, he is reported to have said: "I do not suppose that 1 shall improve my chances of recognition by this visit, but I felt it to be a duty that I owed to you as well as myself. Some appoint ments have already been made in my district, all of them without any refer ence to my opinions or wishes. The men selected may be democrats, but they are not democrats who have ren dered the party any service, so far as I have been able to discover. Now there are plenty of good men in the district men in every way as good and well iialifiecl as the men who have received appointments who are democrats and have been of service to the party. I desire to say to you that such appoint ments as have been made in my dis trict have produced much discontent and that has been aggravated some what by the retention in office of re publicans." It, is reported that at this stage the president remarked: "I have heard all this scores of times, and I am get ting tierd of it. There are complaints because I do not turn out every repub lican officeholder immediately. Peo ple seem to forget that this is a big country and that the machinery of this great government cannot be overhauled in a week or month. I am doing the best that I can, and I am weary of the constant repetition of the same com plaints." There is a growing belief in official circles that neither Postmaster General Vilas nor Secretary of State Bayard are long for the Cabinet. There is ex cellent authority for believing that the President and Secretary of State are not in harmony' as to the policy of placing so many ex-rebels in diplomat ic positions. On the outset of Mr. Cleveland's administration, it was the unde'stood policy of Mr. Bayard that, as far as possible, the South should be recognized at the State department. By giving ex-'-ebels offices out of the country, it is thought that their claims would be fully met and satisfied with out incurring the criticism that would follow if prominent ex-Confederates were put in high places at home. This policy Mr. Cleveland has livod up to most thoroughly, the exceptions being hardly sufficient to take off the curse. The Secretary of State living on the middle line between the North and South, has, naturally, a large acquain tance with Southerners. He has been overpersuaded by them until the mat ter has become offensive to the Presi dent, and the latter has talked about it to some of his New York friends. Ex. PRESS COMMENT. New York Herald. It is not long since the democrats claimed to be the debt-paying party, and formally declared in convention that "readjustment is highway robbery and readj usters highway robbeis." But the party now accepts the readjustment scheme which it so lately denounced, and Senator Mahone in his recent let ter to Senator Warner Miller declares that it is ready to go, and even has al ready gone, to a degree of repudiation beyond that charged to the readjustees. Boston Advertiser (Mug.) We suggest to the postmaster gei - end that it would be a good idea to re quire of those who ask for the removal of any officer on the ground that he has been an offensive partisan in any of the indicated particulars and of the candidate for the vacancy to be created, explicit assurance that, if appointed, he will strictly refrain from all such par ticipation in politics as is by the post master general held to be offensive and unbecoming in a public servant. Boston Herald. t It was a quarrel over toe inces which led Conkling to quit the senate divided the party in New York, and contributed to the loss of the presiden cy. And whenever there is sulking or sore-headedness in the democartic paVty to-day, it is due to disputes, or disap pointments as to the offices. It is high time for the party to turn its attention from men to measure, and from the offices to the problems of statesman ship, if it expects to justify its being here. Albany Journal. In all their disappointments the re formers have clung to the hope that in Postmaster General Vilas, the cabinet member who controls the great bulk of the federal patronage, they had a firm and abiding friend. Even this hope is to be abandoned, and Mr. Vilas, too, it seems, must be classed with the good men of this administration who have gone wrong. , . Boston Herald (Mug.): Postmaster General Vilas's action in notifying democratic members of Congress that they "must determine the postmasters of the fourth class for the several dis tricts" is a most unwarrantable one. In Governor Cleveland's letter to the Reform league, he sain that appoint ments for non-political offices not with in the scope of the civil service act would be "based upon inquiries as to their fitness, directed by those charged with that duty." This assuredly does not mean members of Congress or de feated democratic candidates in repub lican districts. ' AVERY & IRVINE, (Successors to S. H. Look,) Cash Dealers In BOOTS and SHOES.

Considering the present condition ot affairs it behooves every yersou to practice economy and to obtain for every dollar expended the best and most satisfactory result. This can be only accom plished hy a strictly CASH SYSTEM. The expense of keeping accounts and the cost of collection mnst of necessity be added to the price of goods sold. There is also a more im portant contingency to be provided tor, namely: the number and amount of bad accounts that are unavoidable in giving credit, no matter how carful the seller mav he. These losses must be made flood by charging cash customers a higher price, to make up for losses sustained on worthless accounts.
