The renomination ' of Hon. John
W'hiteaker for Representative of Ore
gon in the Federal Congress by the late
Democratic State Convention, was
something more than the compliment
of a grateful party to an honest public
servant who had already done the faith
ful part oi a representative citizen iu
the responsible position of a Governor
and a btate Semi tor. It was moro than
the selection of a man from the party
ranks merely on tho ground of availa
bility. It was a discarding of prece
dent and th inauguration of a new or
der of things , which threw overboard
Hitherto, no Congressman nor Unit
ted States Senator has ever been twice
elected from this State, to serve two
consecutive terms; and in our opinion,
the State has been the loser by it more
than once, ' Let the East elect ever so
competent and ablo a Representative to
Congress, and the very next State Con
vention weuld supplant him with a
man from the Willamette or Umpqua.
Sectional interests were made para
mount to ability, experience and all
those weightier considerations by which
intelligent parties should hope to pre
serve their integrity, and intelligent
party leaders aim to maintain their as
cendancy. Ihe renomination of John vhitea-
ker means something better and more
liberal for the future; it means that a
moro intelligent and less bigoted cla.s3
of men are lieing sent to our State Con
ventions. It means that a man's pre
ferment, hereafter, will depend more
upon his reputation for honesty and
ability than upon his place of residence.
And it does not mean that Oregon m the
saccharine futurity, will say to those
who have upheld her name and fame
with becoming dignity, "Well done
thou good and faithful Bcrvant, take
thou a back seat"
Those who visited the city of Port
land, during the past weak, wit
nessed a tierce struggle in tho ranks of
the Radical party. On the one hand,
the sober cautious and reflecting ele
ment of that party was seeking to nom
inate some other man than a Federal
appointee or the tool of a ring; on the
other hand every nerve strained to pro
cure tho nomination of a niar.liino poli
tician. Everything betokens a divis
ion in the ranks of that party. Ono wing
trying to defeat the corrupt ends of a
few men who had all tho engines of the
party under control; tho other whirl
ing madly on toward centralism and
total disregard of all popular right and
No such unhappy dissentions dark
ens the party of which the sturdy old
farmer of Cloverdale is the standard
bearer. Proud of his command, they
wheel into line and will be invincible
at the ballot box. It has been said
that no successful fight can be made on
a man who is absent from the State,
because he is not here in person to de
fend himself. Our answer is that J ohn
Whiteaker needs no defense. His acts
are a matter of public record, a record
that he could not change if he would
and one so plain that "he, who runs
may read.' As Governor lie kept the
State out of debt at a time when her
resources were a tithe of what they
now are. As State Senator, his vote
was always uron the principle of "the
greatest good to tho greatest number."
And as a Representative, the only
Democrat from the Pacific Slope, he
has nobly upheld the dignity of both
State and party. There can be tio reas
onable doubt of his re-election.
A correspondent to a London, Eng
land, paper, says that it is believed
that tho Rurmese government lias de
cided to meet the wishes of the Rritish
government, and it is probable that
early permission will be given the uur
mese embassy to proceed to Calcutta.
The writer also states that the rumors
of the death of King Thelaw are un
founded, ad that small pox is raging
in Mindaly and the heir apparent has
died of the disease. Another corres
pondent from Bunnah says that Man
tlalay astrologers maintain that in or
der to remove evil influences, great pro
pi tiary sacrifices is requisite. Victims
will be taken from all ranks to the
number of 400. The priests contribute
100, the remainder are to be made up
of men, women and children. Many
arrests have been made to secure the
number of victims. The priests, who
have hitherto enjoyed immunity from
sacrifices, are quitting Mandalay in
irreat numbers. A Catholic convent
was entered to procure victims from
among the girls thpre, but the attempt
was frustrated. The condition of the
country is most unsatisfactory.

Wha; Did Paul Say.
Maiiy years ago there lived in Vir
ginia a Baptist preacher named B .
though uneducated, he was a sound
thinker and eloquent speaker, and no
minister had a more devoted flock.
It was the custom during the inclem
ent season, to hold meeting at the resi
dence of the members and once or
twice during the winter, at the house of
For years it was observed that B
neither preached nor conducted the
meeting when held at his house, but
secured the services of a neighboring
He was often pressed for an expla
nation, without success; but finally in
response to the importunities of somo
of his flock, he gave the following:
"When I was younger than I ant
now in fact not long after tho com
mencement of my ministration I
held a meeting at my own house. It
being customary for many of- the con
gregation to remain to dinner, Mrs.
-, sent my boy, Tim, to our neigh
bor Taul's for some butter. Tim
returned, and located himself standing
on the outskirts of the congregation.
Heing well warmed up tn my sermon,
thinking neither of Tim or his errand,
but only of the most successful mode
of pressing homo my strongest argu
ments, I demanded with all the energy
in my power:
"What did Paul sayr . '
Tim, at tho top of his little squeak
ing voice exclaimed, as only Tim could
have dono: ,
"He said that you couldn't get any
more until you had paid for what you
"lhis brought down tho house and
cut short one of the finest efforts of my
early ministry. Since then I have
kept my preaching disconnected from
my domestic affairs.
Slit wm afraid. .
A man was once walking along one
road, and a woman along another. The
two roads finally united and man and
woman reaching tho junction at the
samo time, walked on together. The
man was carrying a large iron kettle on
his back; in one hand he held by the
leg a live chicken; in the other a cane,
and was loading a goat Just as they
were coining to a deep, dark ravine,
tho woman said to the man:
"I am afraid to go through that ra
vine with you; it is a lonely place, and
you might overpower me and kiss me
"If you aro afraid of that," said tho
man, "you shouldn't have walked with
me at all; how can I possibly overpow
er you and kiss you by force, when I
have this great iron kettle on my back,
a cane in one hond and a live chicken
in the other, and am leading a goatl I
might as. well be tied hand and foot
"Yes," replied the woman, "but if
you should stick your cane into the
ground and tio the goat to it, and turn ,
your kettlo bottom side up and put
your chicken into it,; then you might

"Success to thy ingenuity, O, wom
an!" said the rejoicing man to himself;
"I should never havo thought of such
And when they came to the ravine
he stuck his cane in the ground, and
tied the goat to it, gave the chicken
to the woman saying: "Hold it while
I cut some grass for the goat," and
then lowering the kettle from his back
imprisoned the chicken under it, and
wickedly kissed tho woman as she was
afraid ho would
At a recent meeting of the Southern
Historical Society, in Lou.siania, an
apron mode in the semblance of a Con
federate (lag was shown and its history
told. In the spring of 1863 the Elev
enth Virginia Cavalry passed through
Hagerstown, weury, discouraged and
pursued by Federal troops. A young
girl stood iu the doorway, wearing this
apron. The soldiers cheered enthusias
tically, and the Colonel asked her to
give him a piece of it for a memento.
"You may have it all," she said and it
was carried with the regimental colors
into tattle on the following day. ' The
youthful soldier who bore it was mort
ally wounded, but he saved the apron
from capture by hiding it in his bosom.
A clergyman asked his Sunday
school: "With what remarkable weap

there was no answer; and the clergy

tip of his fing"r, saying: "Wliat's this!
what's this!" Quick as thought a little
fellow innocently replied: "The jaw
