Tbe Governor's Btuaje.
Tlie messagrt of W. W. Thayer to
the Twelfth Biennial Smion of the
Li gislature, proved to be an able and
masterly address. It tienis with nound
advice and wholesome suggestions to
the members of the Legislature res
pecting their duty as one of the co
ordinate brunches of the government,
calling their attention to legislation
that is most needed at the present timn,
snd advises them to employ their entire
time in considering and acting upon
those measures only which ore "calcu
lated to benefit tho community at
The Governor shows that ho is inti
mately acquainted with the condition
of all'airs, and the needs of the. people,
and his message recommends itself l.y
its plain, unvarnished statement of
facts connected with his four years ad
ministration rh executive of tho Slate.
He shows tint current expense.? of the
State, during the fiscal years lSSl and
1882, including various claims and ap
propriations, to be. about $400,000, and
a balance now in the treasury belong
ing to the State of $1 10,000 over and
above all expenses and 'legitimate
claims for the two years named, and
expresses tho opinion that laid balance
is the largest sum that has ever been
left unexpended of the current expen
ses since the Stato Government was or
ganized. Tho Governor suggests that
this balance should be wisely applied to
tho interest and advantage of the State.
He thinks that the constitution of the
Slate does not contemplate a fixed tax
for an indefinite, length of time for the
purpose of raising a revenue, as has
been levied in the past, but that it re
quires the "Legislative Assembly to
provide at each session a list of the
probable expenses of each of the bien
nialyears specifying the object and
to levy a tax sufficient to defray the es
timated amount a similar mode .to
that pursued by the County Courts of
the State." This is a wise suggestion
and one that should be adopted at the
As to the general bonded indebted
ness, the mciuage shows that it consists
of the soldiers' bounty 1 Kinds, the Sol
diers' reliet bonds, the bonded debt
arising out of the Indian difficulties of
1&7S, and the dobt created by the act
of 1880 to complete the payment of
the Modoc War bonds. Most of this
indebtedness a rosed out of claims as.
sumed by tho State, but which in
justice should have been paid by tho
United States in tli6 firetinstance. Ky a
recent act of Congress Iiowcve, the
State will in part be reimbursed for the
money's paid out on account of hoiiio of
these claims. There also exists a spec
iul bonded indebtedness payable to the
Willamette Fall Canal and Locks Com
pany of about 60,000, with ?30,000
now in Jh treasury applicable to. its
In referring to the Act of 1880
placing restriction upon tho deduction
of indebtedness in the assessment of
property tho Governor' says: "I am
satisfied that this (Act) has had tho
effect to prevent tho allowance of a
large amount of spurious claims. If
the provisions of the act are faithfully
enforced by tho assessors of tho various
counties, it will break up a practice
that has long prevailed, of claiming de
duction on account of contingent liabil
ities and ficticious debts, and w ill obvi
ate some of the objections urged against
including chom in action in the list of
property taxed as it will tend to insure
their taxation." Tho Governor sug
gests the propriety of constituting the
assessors of the several counties a board
with authority to establish general
rules regarding the valuation of similar
kinds of property, so that there may
be some uniform system in the work
and the taxes thus equalized through
out the State, Under the head of tax
ation he calls attention to foreign ex
press, Unking and insurance compan
ies, and recommends the enactment of
such laws as will compel them to pay
a due proportion of the expenses of the
State, pointing out at present hour they
evade the payment of taxes on tho de
posits required to be made by them, by
depositing with the , Slate Treasurer
United States bonds which are notsult
iect to taxation. The tneHHagn deals at
i length with the public institutions of
the State the penitentiary, the asylum
for the insane, and tbe school for the
deaf mutes, showing the condition of
each, and suggesting whatever modifi
cations are needed for the better man
agement of each.
Other matters of vital importance
are ably discussed by his excellency and
the attention of the present Le2'K'tturo
called to them. Whilst scarcely enough
is said in regard to the present systcra
of pilotage and towage, the Governor
nevertheless recommends that tho com
plaints Iwing made against tho exorbi.
tant charges enacted under the present
system, be enquired inlo, and recog
nizes the power and right of the legis
lative assembly to reduce tho rates of
charges if they bo found exorbitant and
oppressive. An earl completion of
the insane asylum building is urged on
the ground that unless tho State is
ready to take charge of the insane on
or before tho first of December next,
tho contract inadn with Dr. J. C. Haw
thorn will, under its very terms con
tinue in force two years longer. The
passage of .an act providing for tho
management of the institution when
completed, is urged with great force
and reason. It is argued that it would
be a criminal neglect of duty on the
part of the Legislature, not to provide
strong barriers against the attempts of
place-hunters to gain control of the un
fortunate insane of the State.
On the whole the message of Gov
ernor Thayer will compare favorably
with the address of any former execu
tive. It shows throughout an intimate
acquaintance with everything portain
ing to the duties of his position. He
leaves the State in good tinanoial con
dition, and we would not ask more of
his successor, than that he gives us a
economical an administration as Gov
ernor Thayer's has Wen. Democrat.
Killed the Wrong flio.
An irascible sea captain settled down
to Portland life by the side of a well
tempered man, and the two got along
very well until tho ben question came
up. Said tho captain:
"I like you as a neighW, but I don't
like your hens, and if they trouble ine
any more, I'll shoot them.
The mild mannered neighbor studied
over the matter some, but knowing the
captain's reputation well by report, be
"Well, if we can't get along any
other way, shoot the hens, but III take
it as a favor if you will throw them
when dead over into our yard and yell
to my wife."
"All right," said the captain.
The next day the captain's gun was
heard and a dead hen fell in the qoite
man's yard. The next day anothor hen
was thrown over, the next two, and the
next after, three.
"Suy," says the quiet man, "couldn't
you scatter them along a little? We
really can't dispose of tho nuutlior you
"Give 'em to your poor relations,"
replied the captain, gruffly.
And the quite man did. He kept
his neighbors well supplied with chick
ens for some weeks.
One day tho captain said to tho quiet
"I have half a dozen nice hens I'm
going to give to you if youll keep
quiet about this ofTair."
"How is thatr said the quiet man.
"Are you sorry that you killed my
"Your hens?" said the captain.
"Why, sir, those hens belonged to my
wife! I didn't know she had any until
I fed you and your neighbors all sum
mer out of her flock. Portland, Me.,
T. E. Fristoe, who lives north of
Sheridan, was on Thursday last stricken
with paralysis, while threshing in that
section. The stroke was a severe one,
extending over his entire body and
learing him in a very critical condition
fer a time. But by careful medical at
tention he was able to ln out on Satur
day, and is in a fair way to fully re
cover. The new bridge aero the aouth
Fork of the John Day is to have two
spans of sixty feet each, and two ap
proaches, each 6fty feet in length.
Just after the last election in this
State there was a general demand for a
registration law in Oregon. But the
election is over, and other topics of ab
sorbing interest have pressed out of
sight the needs of this law until another
election shall come off and then it
will be too late to pasa the law. Our
object is to direct attention to this
great want now, while the Legislature
is in session. Our cities and towns are
Setting so large that it is not so easy to
find judgea who can know every voter,
as has been the case in the small towns.
In the city of Portland, for instance,
the judges cannot know one man in a
hundred who offers to vote. We haro
no registration law of any kind to
guard the purity of elections. All that
is required is that tho would-l voter
offer his ballot, and, if not challenged,
in it goes, whether ho be alien or citi
zen. If challenged, if ho will swear he
has been a resident of the State and
county six months, in it goes, notwith
standing the objection. Too much re
sponsibility is placed upon the judges;
for a brief season they are clothed with
too much power. If theso judges are
corrupt, no amount of challenging can
protect the purity of the ballot. In
stances of the .grossest abuse of their
power by judges of election have come
under tho observation of the writer
hereof, as, perhaps, it has to almost
every other voter in this State, In
one precinct in the city of Portland, at
any election within the lost fivo years,
we personally know of at least 100
illegal vtes being cast, by tho conni
vance of corrupt judges of election.
The fault of our election laws does not
lay with the choosing of judges or the
manner of their conduct, so much as
the want of some means of properly
identifying voters. At present wt
know that repeating can be done with
the greatest of ease by adopts thereat,
and that it is done in Portland, The
Dalles, Astoria, Salem and the larger
cities and town in this State. The
papers of tbo State have to some ex
tent been agitating the subject, and it
is well they should, as there is almost
a universal demand for a registration
law of some kind, which will prevent
repeating and punish violators thereof.
A Patent for Married Sea.
Kentucky Slate Journal.
Our patent bed spring has been re
modeled. The one for two-in-a bed is
so arranged that the part tho wife lies
on can be set by tho husband, unknown
to the former, and it springs her out of
bed and stands her op on the floor at
any timo for which it is set It then
remains turned up on the edge, so she
can't get back again, at least, on her
side of the bed, and she won't come
back on his sido for she is too all
fired mad to come near him. So the
result is she is compelled to dress and
go down stairs to see to breakfast, and
