FRIDAY................... SEPTEMBER 3, 1875.
YOU CJYT MOST ALWAYS SOME
Was It the voice of a bell or bird
Which, careless I half-hearing heard ?
It bubbled forth with a laugh Inblent,
And a childish acream of merriment.
And these the words on mv ear that fell,
‘‘You can’t most always sometimes tell.”
I marveled much such words to hear,
But smiled at their conjunction queer,
For in them was a pregnant thought.
To be in many a Judgment wrought,
For what Is ill or what is well,
We can’t moat always sometimes tell.
The outside glitter of worldly show
Obscures the meanings that lurk below ;
We gaze and wonder and think we see,
But onr eves are blurred with the crlamoury;
We check onr verdict, saying. “Well.
We can’t most always sometimes tell.”
Superlatives tn dress and air
May take the careless by their glare,
And stimulated virtues shine
As bright as lewels from the mine ;
We Judge the kernel from the shell.
But we can’t most always sometimes toll.
80 verdicts every day are given
Of many matters under heaven ;
With honest hearts and truthful tongue
They earnestly are said and sung,
Where people pray or preach or sell;
We can’t most always sometimes tell.
The smiling look may haply hide
A covert where the gloom abide ;
The dullest tone in law or love
May treacherous and wicked prove ;
The smooth mien hide a purpo«e fell—
We can’t most always sometimes tall.
But if *tla thus, reflection saith,
We lose in men all living faith ;
The people moving round about,
Are seen through clouds of fear and doubt,
And they may say of us as well,
We can't most always sometimes tell.

W ashington .—A Washington dis
patch says that the General Lind Office
lias received information that ex-Com-
missioner Drummond, by the means
of defective titles and speculative land
script, is endeavoring to get possession
of a tract of land in the heart of
Chicago valued at millions of dollars.
This affords a fair illustration of the
way fortunes are sometimes made in
Washington. An official remains in
office as long: as he can, and if he is
8 nart he acquires a knowledge of
lapsed titles, neglected claims, and
other matters which are turned tn ac
count in the future. The ex-official
pets up In Washington ns a lawyer or
claim agent, hunts up parties anil doc
umenta, and prosecutes the claim, for
which he receives the lion’s share,
llis knowledge of department routine,
and of the most effective way of push
ing a claim are then put into acquisi
tion. The Interior Department is the
very “big lionanzi” of places, the
various Land, Indian, Internal Rev
enue and other bureaus affording al
most unlimited opjairtunities for
trumping up claims. .Next to the In
terior the Treasury Department is the
l»est for the adventurers, though the
Post Office Department is not to be un
dervalued. The War Department af
fords the poorest pickings of all, It i»e-
ing conducted somewhat on military
principles, anil with old-fashioned ideas
about honor, which are kept alive at
West Point. The maxim is «an offi
cer is a gentleman, and a gentleman
will not steal.” The exceptions to
this are very rare. But for a man of
little or no principle the second best
thing to holding a fat office in the In
terior Department is to be a claim
agent In it.— U. S. Economist.
T he M ails .—When Mr. Under-
wood gets through manipulating con
ventions we would suggest he would
pay a little attention to Postal affairs.
Of late the letter packages from Port
land to 8alem have three times been
carried past this place, and letters of
last week are still not forthcoming.
We do not know who is to blame, but as
the community hold the Postal Ag< nt
res|M)nsible and connected with the
late gold dust matter, we think it is as
well for him not to give any further
color to suspicion. Let us have either
a new agent or better attention to this
important branch of the public service.
A n E lephant P icks a Y oung
W oman ’ s P ocket .—A correspondent
of the Kansas City Times says : “On
Tuesday the entire population, except
a blind woman and Rouse, went over
to see Queen’s great show and have a
nice time. A young lady from across
the Jersey took her suitor and an opera
glass. The young lady says she
thought the performance real romantic
until she stopped to see the elephant.
She wore one of those pockets behind,
in which, besides her handkerchief,
she had deposited an apple, a handful
of peanuts, quarter of a pound of gum
drops, a little bottle of ammonia, and
some other trifles. She and her swain,
after admiring the complexion of the
huge beast, turned their backs upon
him to watch the monkeys and the
live kangaroo, and gaze into each
other’s eyes ; to do this the better they
leaned back against the rope which in
closed the stately monarch, who saw
the apple protruding from the pocket
of the unconscious fair one. lie hesi
tated a moment, and was lost to all
sense of honor or self-respect, for with
a shuffling movement he emulated the
example of our common mother,
plucked and ate the fruit, returned to
the pocket and scooped out the gum
drops and peanuts, with a sly wink at
his nephew, who was looking on with
anxiety at the proceeding. But in the
last mouthful the majestic beast took
in the ammonia bottle by mistake, the
cork came out, and about an ounce of
hartshorn ran down the throat of the
greedy beast. This beverage is said
to have a reviving and stimulating In
fluence, and in this case it proved its
power, for a more revived elephant
was never seen on earth. With a
wild yell he grappled the protuberance
behind the lady which had been the
cause of his disaster ; she was ‘pulled
back* some before, but as the exas
perated trunc yanked at the bustitwind
accessories, all former attempts at that
style of wearing gear seemed pale and
sickly ; everything was ‘pulled back,’
until the young woman looked like
the statue of Niohe in blue calico. The
young man with great presence of
mind shouted ‘Shoo,* and the gentle
manly clerk, of the elephant, with a
long prod, persuaded the beast to let
up. But the fun was over fur the day;
cake had no charms, and soda no balm
for these two souls, who walked home
with but a single thought about wild

M. P oulard , a lawyer of Andelys,
France, has invented a new cider, said
to be very cheap and of excellent flavor
—the peculiarity of which is that a
large pro|s»rtinn of sugar beets is
mixed with the apples before pressing;
80 pounds of beets are mixed with
700 quarts-of apples, or about 11 pound»
to 100 quarts. The beets and apple»
are pressed together, then saturated
with water, left quiet in aceliar for 24
hours, and pressed anew. This re
peated several times. The inventor

DEMOCRAT IC PLATFORM.
The Democratic party of Oregon, in State
Convention assembled, proclaims the follow
ing propositions of political laitli and ac
1. Unfaltering devotion to the cardinal
principles of republican government, as
declared and pu into practical operation by
the Fathers ot tho Republic.
2. The preservation of tho general govern
ment in the proper exercise <»f the powers
delegated to it in tho Constitution, carefully
and strictly construed, and the mainte
nance, inviolate, of tho several States of tho
Union in all their rightH, dignity and equal-
itv, as the most competent and'reliable ad
ministrators of their own domestic concerns,
and the surest bulwark atrainst tho tenden
cy towards a centralized despotism.
*8. Opposition to aggressions by either de
partment of the Government, upon tho for
mation of the and to tho exercise of federal
au’hnrity of any of the rights or powers as
sured by the Constitution to tho States re
spectively. or to the people.
4. That’ every attempt on tho part of the
Federal Government to exercise any pow
ers not deleirated to it. and espe •¡ally every
interference by tho Government or any of
Its departments, with the'local affairs of
any State, or w-ith the right« of the people
thereof to choose their own representatives,
is an act of usurpation which should be re
pudiated and condemned by every friend of
5. We demand retrenchment, reform, and
tho most rigid economy in the administia-
tion of every department of the Govern
ment ; the honest payment of the debts, the
sacred preservation of the public faith ;
strict accountability of all officers, and the
speedy and impartial arraignment of all
abuses of public trust before the tribunal*
of justice : a zealous care of the right» of
election by the people; the absolute sub
ordination of the military to the civil author-
Itv. The equal and impartial administration
of the laws, and tho protection ot the rights
of all ; freedom of religions, of the pre**,
and of the person under protec’ion of the
habeas corpus, and trial by juries impar
tially «elect od.
6. We protest against the burdens of a
protective tariff, a* needless exaction* from
a people already intolerably oppro««cd b.v a
national debt, and we insist that the tariff
be so regulated as to provide only sufficient
revenue for an economical administration
of the Government, and not for the purpose
of enriching the few at the expense of the
many, or fostering one branch of industry
to th» detriment of the other.
7. That the precious metals are the only
basis of commercial values ; that an irre
deemable *paper currency is a national
curse, and we insist upon tho speedy re
turn by the National government to specie
8. The institution of the system of na
tional bank* was a fraud upon the country
and an injustice upon the laboring classes,
and wo demand such prudent legislation as
will gradually bring this vicious system to a
close : »hat all currency which may be
issued shall be convertible into coin upon
demand and be issued directly by the Gov
9. That the treaty between tho United
States and China shall be so modified as to
apply solely to commercial relations.
10. That we condemn the party in power,
not onlv for its contempt or constitutional
obligations, but for extravagant, partisan
and corrupt administration of the Federal
government ; for its reckless expenditure
and profligate waste of the people’s money ;
for its onpressive. unjust and defective sys
tem of finance and taxation ; forthe perver
sion of the func’ions of the General govern
ment to enrich the great corporations at the
♦»xnon«e of the people ; for the jobbery and
frauds which have brought reproach upon
democratic institutions; for the iniquities
of the protpc‘ive system ; for tho curse of
an inconvertible paper money ; for its dis
graceful diplomatic service and unfit ap-
poin’ment« and continuance in office of In
competent and corrupt men at home and
abroad ; for it« a'tempt to pass an unconsti
tutional force bill, and for a catalogue of
o*her enormities which have rendered that
organization offensive to and subversive of
tho liberties of a free people.
11. That corporations are the creatures of
law; their functions and privileges are
granted to subserve the public interests, and
when thev are not used for the object of
their creation, but for purpose of oppression
and extortion, wo declare it to be the right
and duty of the legislative power to regu-
’a‘e and control such corporations for the
12. That we disapprove all measures in
the interest of monopolies against labor, and
therefore we approve of the declared prin
ciples and sympathize with the avowed ob
jects of the order known as the Patrons of
Husbandry, and with those of all other or
ders having for their object retrenchment
and reform In nublie affairs and the social
advancement of the people.
18. That we are in favor of laboring to se
cure the judicious appropriations from Con
gress for the purpose of improving our har
bors along the western and northern bonnda-
ries of our State, and we demand that our
Repre«entatives In Congress shall u«e their
host efforts to secure the aid of the General
government for the free navigation and im
provement of the Columbia river, by the
construction of locks at the Cascades ; the
improvement ofthe Willamette and Coquille
rivers ; the construction of the Portland,
Dalles and Salt Lake and Winnemucca
Railroads, and the early completion of the
Oregon and California Railroad from Rose
burg to the State line.
14. That the policy of the Republican
party in dealing with the Indian tribes is
impolitic and unwise ; that the time has ar
rived when the few Indians now occupying
the Umatilla. Grand Ronde and Siletz reser
vations should be removed to some other
locality. and thus open up to settlement by
