So they shook hands and parted.
At the last session of the Legislature
the sum of '2,00() was appropriated
for a memorial stone from this Stato to
be placed in the Washington monu
ment, in a niche left for that purpose,
and the contract for executing this
work was let to Frank Woods, of Al
bany. He has been engaged upon the
stone for some time, and expects to
limn it completed by August 1st. AI
though several Slates have expended
much more than Oregon for a memorial
stone, it is stated that none yet sent
fiom any Stati will surpass this one
when completed. It is to consist of
three kind? of Oregon stone. The
stone itself is a hrown sandstone hear

Secretary Manning has reduced the

! Miss Cleveland Ins settled tho mooted
question of who is the first lady in the
land. Slin settled it herself in a way
that meets pul.lic applause. Tho other
put oinn old calico dress, and with
broom and dust pan in hand, went from
room to room and made things lively
for a w hile. The servants, who had
never witnessed such a scene in tho old
mr.nsion, Ktood aghast, hut that didn't
deter, her from going through with th
work. Of course thero is going toTm
a terrihle outcry on tho part of polite
vxiety. Rut that will not dethrone
Mis Cleveland from the proud position
which the American people with a
loud voice will accord to her. The
masses of tho people will stand hy her
and uphold her as the first lady of the
land. Such homely common sense aa
she displays is right up to American
ideas. The woman who knows how to
take care of her home is the only queen
that Americans crown. Courier-Jour

A Washington special says: Treas
ury officials are still trying to find the
address of Governor Kinkead of Alas
ka, to notify him that he has heen suc
ceeded hy Stvineford of Michigan.
Kinkead has heen dodging ahout he
tween Alaska, San Francisco and Ne
vada, avoiding telegrams. The last
heard of him he had sailed for northern
Aluski. It is probahlo that he will
not he informed of his recall until the
new Governor finds him and relieves
liin; ollieiady. The Treasury Depart
ment is also trying to relieve one of
the Seal island agents, supposed to he
at Alaska. It turns out that he has
not heen there for a year or more, hut
awaits his removal in San Francisco.
No thinks he will he allowed to draw
pay until ho receives an order of re
moval, hut it has been decided other
wise, hy placing the name of his suc
cessor on the pay roll, to dato from
June 5th.
A Good Administrallon.
The San Francisco Post, a leading
Republican paper, says: "The fact is
that President Cleveland has, on the
whole, giyen the country a very satis
factory administration so far. The
people uro convinced that he is a man
of honest purpose, bent upon doing his
best. le has made mistakes, of course,
and his policy of restoring the South
to a full share of the honors and emolu1
iiients of tho Government may ho dis
agreeable to old-line Republicans. Hut
nobody ever expected that old Repub
licans would take much comfort out of
a Democratic administration. Mr.'
Cleveland has not been iu ottice long
enough to furnish tho opposition with
material for a platform. And, judging
from the character of the man, it is
probable the Republicans will find it
expedient to trust to something besides
his blunders to supply them with am
munition." "Where rolls tho mighty Oregon"
was quoted hut once while tho editors
were in Oregon, and then tho work was
done by nn Oregon man. One of our
Fowa boys quoted "Breathes there a
man with soul so dead," i'C,' and ten
minutes after our train pulled ou( the

The appointment of Mr. R. H. Todd,
of Spokane Falls, as deputy internal
revenue collector for eastern Washing

is a most excellent selection.' Mr. Todd
resided for many years in Mc.Minnville,
is a thorough business man, and has
the esteem and confidence of those who
know him.
Gov. Noadly will doubtless Im renom
inated for Governor of Ohio and tr
tho race over again with Foraker. " He
has rnailn a splendid record as Gover
nor, and we trust will lie elected again.'
He is 0110 of the leaders of the Domoc
