Settled the Question.
Tho late election In this State settled
the question as to the political status
of Oregon. The Independent vote has
r turned to the Republican or Démo
cratie parties, says the Journal, and
so far as the Independent party in this
State is concerned, it is a party of his
tory—its mission accomplished, its
existence remaining only in the name
it has left behind. Whitney’s voto in
the entire State will not reach over
1,000 when the final returns come to
be counted, if it goes above 500. In
the counties where Davenport last
year polled his largest vote, with the
exception of Multnomah county, this
year we find the heaviest Republican
majorities, and the returns from Doug
las, Marion, Washington and Yamhill
counties are proof of this much. Now
if, after the Republican party has ab-
.««orbed tho Independents who are
Republicans in sentiment, and has
made what has been truly a square
fight against the Democratic party,
carrying with it tlie weight of the
defeat of the party in Ohio and other
States, and the capital afforded the op
position by the agitation of the pub
lic school question, then here re
mains not the slightest doubt that
Oregon is Democratic from choice and
not from chance, and is certain to elect
a Democratic Legislature in June next,
and cast her vote for the Democratic
candidate for the Presidency in 1876.
THE SPECIAL ELECTION.
The returns of the late election
come in slowly, but enough is known
to place the election of Hon. L. F.
Lane beyond a doubt.. However, his
plurality is not near as large as was
at first announced. The vote is light
throughout the State, but for which
fact he would have received a hand
some majority over all. Too great a
degree of confidence pervaded the
Democratic ranks from the outset, and
in consequence a large number of
Democrats staid away from the polls,
which came near endangering the suc
cess of our candidate. The Independ
ents, as a general thing, voted for the
Republican candidate, as is shown by
the returns from the various counties
in which they were the strongest in
1874, and where Warren now receives
a considerable plurality. Whitney
and Dimick, Independent and Tem
perance candidates, figure slightly in
the contest, Neither of them will re-
ceive 1,000 votes in the State, from
present appearances, The following
is an abstract of the election returns
as far as heard from:
