HATOllDAY. '.TAN. HO, 1877.
Politicians, no matter to what par
ty tbcy belong, nro tardly to bo con
. - sidorcd responsible persons. They
have always been notorious for doing
ridiculously foolish things. The
crowd now at Washington, however,
holds the pole that knocks tho persim
mons in that lino. They bavo sum
moned to that city to "testify in tho
Oregon electoral caso A number of
men who know absolutely nothing of
th matter at issue. Denny, for in
stance, testified that ho saw Chudieick
jaw the certificates to 'Crottin and that
ho saw Bush jo into the State Treas
urer's office with Bellinger. And thon
comes J. M. Johns, an, animal found
by lien. Ilolladay and now owned
by J. Mipplo IIitchell, and Bay that
ho "understood" that Grovcr wanted
Chad wick to count Watts out and to
count Cronin in. This kind ot "testi
mony" might do to convict a man ol
liorso stealing on, or of soiling liquor
to infants, or even of arson, but it
don't seem to fit tho caSo in hand.
Tho good work of raising woman
from her lowly sphero goes bravely
on. A Presbytery in iv York on
tho 4th iiist. concluded tho trial of
Itcv. Dr. Leo for a violation of St.
Paul's injunction and of tho rules of
tho church in allowiii'' n woman to
occupy his pulpit, in which they found
him guilty of ' unwilful violation" of
theso rules. That church would seem
to bo a proper subject for missionary
labor on tho part of tho friends of hu
man woman freedom.
Gov. (Jrover, in ono way and mi
other, has dono more to brinr Oregon
into notico than could half a dozen
Boards of Immigration. His' action
and published opinions in tho Watts
Cronin case havo made him and Ore
gon both famoim, and henceforth peo
at a disianco will turn with inquisi
tivo interest to a place that furnishes
such mci as our Governor and minds
cnpablo of scotching tho most un
scrupulous combination of fraud and
corruption that havo ver disgraced
our country. Tho "half civilized Wes
terner" will hereafter bo counted a
factor in politics.
Tho Christian Advocate, of Port
land, has quit religion and gono into
politics espousing tho cause ol
Grant, Chandler and all tho other
thieves. It is very painful to see how
that paper has degenerated since Dr
Dillon was displaced as its editor.
The N. V. Jfmihl says : "The Or-
egon Electoral uuiddlo is encouraging
to stockholders in lunatic asylums."
It looks something as if the inmates
of about six first-class asylums had
been engaged to pnss on it.

Dispatches to Eastern papers in re
gard to tho testimony of Gov. Grover
at Washington differ very materially
from thoso sent tho organ at Portland.
A dispatch to tho N. V. Su of the

Th Presidential Problem.
From tho dispatches of the 17th it
appears that the joint committee of
tho Senate and tho IIouso has agreed
on a plan to ascertain who shall bo
President of tho United States for the
next four years. According to a dis
patch to tho Now York World it zau
bo authoritatively stated that tho con
ference committees of the two houses
on a plan to verify and count the elec
toral vote havo virtually agreed. On
tho lGth tho main feature was adopt
ed by a decided majority. This feat
ure proposes a tribunal ot arbitration,
to bo composed of tho first five judges
of tho Supreme Court, to bo selected
in the order of their length of service
on tho bench, lo this arbitration is
to bo referred all questions of law and
equity arising out of contested teturns
for decision as to which is tho proper
return to be counted. Their decision,
however, is not lo be final, as has been
foreshadowed in some quarters, but is
to bo left torevision by Congress.
The two houses are to bo briefly do
bato it and then vote upon it, If belli
do not agree to reject it, then it is to
remain, aod tho return submitted for
such volo is to bo counted for a valid
electoral vote. Tho arbitrators are lo
net co-ordinately directly with tho
two houses of Congress, through tho
President of tho Senate, ami tho de
cision submitted by tho former is to
bo passed upon separately by each
liouso, but announced to tho joint con
vention, If both tho Senate and
House of Representatives decide lo
reverse, then tho return involved is
not to be counted. Tho whole plan,
it is expected will bo submitted to
