After the Election-
(XOVEMBEK 4TH, EVENISO RURAL TOTEU
Wal, we've bin and 'lected Blaine, mother,
Johnny's fif3t vote, and mebbe my last,
Though I aint so awful, old neither,
But goin' on sixty past.
I'm glad the campaign's over,
An' so I expect is Blaine.
Them Cleveland fellers looked droopy to
day. Like chickens out in the ram.
What? Mcbbe the'll beat him Blaine!
Pshaw I hear the woman talk!
,Mcbbeahiyninc is water,

And mebbe this butter' chalk.
No, ye can't skecr me a talkin'.
I know we're sure to win.
I'd bet on that tliisminit;
Beat Blninc? No, that's too thin.
(A week later R. V. indignant.)
Doubtful if Blaine's elected;
Oh, them's jest newspaper lies,
Demycrat ways o'- doing,
That honest men despise.
What, beat the Republican party ?
The party that fit and won,
Wal, I don't expect to be here
When that there job is done.
Beat Lincoln's party and Garfield's?
The party that's payin' the debt?
An, let the South'ners govern us?
Wal no, I guess not yet.
Think Cleveland could be elected ?
Sho now, don'Malk to me,
It'ill be nil right, to-morrow.
Beat Blaine? what a fool idee.
(Two weeks after election R. V. all broke
Cleveland elected I Cleveland?
A Demycrat, can it be?
Blaine beat by thj votes of Northern men;
You're makin' a fool ot me!
And Logan, I fit under Logan,
An' you now don't mean to say
That the nun he saved a country for
Hev give him dead away?
I b''ieve there's beel some fraud sorn'ers.
Must a bin, they don't count fair.
I can't for the life of me, see
How a Demycrat beats us square.
Blaine beat, Logan beat, us beat?
John, I tell ou its mighty tough,
I didn't 'low the United States
Wuz made of sech poor stuff.
My faith in human natur, John,
Is runnin' considerable low.
I s'poso this is what the papers mean.
When they talk of eatin' crow.
Of course we can't quite like it,
Tain't bin our diet for years, ye know,
And 1 reckon we'll save Ihe critter
vln' keep it jest fer show.
But I want to live 'till 'S8,

We'll see who eats crow then, John,
It won't be me and Blaine.

Mr. George Lelio, who lives about
five mile3 from Salem, near the Wil
lamette river, has demonstrated that
carp can be xuccessfully produced.
He has a large sprir.g which heljsto
fued the four ponds which hold the
finny tribe, which with the water of
the creek gives an abundant supply
throughout the yrar. There are some
ten acres covered by these ponds.
Natural depressions of the surface of
the land made only a little labor nes
essary to confine the water for these
ponds, which are from four to six feet
in depth. Mr. Leslie started three
years ago with eleven fish, adding six
more soon after, making seventeen in
all. The first year an accident to a
sluice let a large number of young fish
out into the Willamette, but by actual
count maile while transfeiring the fish
through a slu'co there were found to
be 1G.500 this spring. The fish arc
fed graiu from the biewery, boiled
potatoes, and in fact any refuse such
as would be fed to a pig. Mr. Leslie
comes to SaIcui twice a week ith his
fish; ha hf a large zinc tank fitted in
the back of the wagon bed, in which
marketable fish are swimming; a dip
net serves he fish alive to customers,
the CaL weighing from one peund each
to four, mostly the lesser weight, but
Mr. Leslie expects to give largrr fish
another year. So far tho expsnss of
this enterprise has been little, the
original fish costing about a dollar end
a half apiece. Mr. L. expects to havo
ten acres more in pond by next spring,
and judges from his preient succes
that he will have an abundant market
for all he cau produce. The 'fish is
like shad in the movement, smell am)
hone, the meat is white and delicious,
It seems that in this well-watered
country that almost every farmer
might, with a little labor, make a pond
that would supply a home demand at
little money cost. Any good spring
would supply water enough, for the
pond need not bo daep. When one
lives mi'as from a market, as most
farmers do, a mess of fresh fiih wouhl
be a good change from the regular
diet of salt meat. Will.unetU Farmer.
The Oregon Trump.
Most likely a majority of tho old
settlers of this section have beard of
Kini Stewtrt, the Oregon tramp. He
was in the city yesterday on his usual
annual round. He is selling a horse
cinch of his own manufacture, and
which represents tho original Latin
manu facio of the word, or made by
hand. On his former trips his cincliei
were mads of common horse hair, but
this time they are woven, or twuted
from the long mohair of the Angora
goat, and this makes a very soft nnd
also a stout cinch. He wants to sell
thcmat$3 a cinch, but tho sale was
not large in this city. This man is a
natural cuiiosity. His worldly pos
sessions are carried around by him on
his person. Ho has his blankets and
his dinner pail and hatchet to help him
in building his campfires. Wherever
night overtakes him he rolls Uf in his
Mauketv, and the whole "world is his
home," through we do not know his
religion. His apparel is the most
antiquted part of his make up, and
consists of gunny sacks sewed to
getlier by hand, old boots, old hat, and
a kind of sash thrown over his klioul
der, made of his blankets. He wears
long beard, but with modern attire
would not be a homely individual.
He came to Oregon in 1845 nnd set
tied on a farm in Benton county,
where bis wife died many years ago,
his family became separated and he
disposed of his property and became a
wanderer. One of his sons: is tn Mon
tana and one in California, and they
are above mediocrity in intelligence.
This remarkable tramp never tires or
re.sts from wandering. He is cent:nu
ally on the go, and his incessant march
will probably not end till death over
takes him on one of his trips. He
lives within himself, begging and buy
ing what he can, and the mystery that
set him waudring will probably never
be known. Ha must be possessed of
some hallucination that leads him on
his course as some kind of sacrificial or
religious duty. Salem Statesman.

8 PEIS YEAR
Blaine's Views on His De
feat. NewYouk, Nov. H-The World
prints this morning the following spec
ial from Augusta, Maine: Emmons
Blaine, who is now in New York, had
a long conversation with a lady there
just before he left, in which he com
pletely unbosomed himself as to the
views his father takes of his defoat.
This lady in turn tells tho story tome,
and I betray no confidence in giving"
the substance of it. According to
Emmons Bln'ih?, tit?' elder Blaine
thinks he would have carried New
York by a large majority, and been
elected, if the election had taken
place a wiuk before it did. He now
regrets, above all thing, that he
stopped in Now York on his return
from the west, for it was there, derinsj
tha la't wrek of the eampaign, that
the two fatal blunders were committed
which would not have been committed
if he Und been elsewhere. The first
was the rlebrated lapsus of Dr Burch
ard, and tho second the Dilmanico
dinner. When Blaine heard that
Gould wns to bo one of the givers of
tho Delmonico dinner ho protested
against going, not because of any per- '
sonal dislike to Gould, but solely as a
matter of expedience; but both William
Walter Phelps and Whitelaw Reid
said he must go; that it would be
worth S1000 for every plate on the
table. Blaine resisted their appeals
up to the last moment, but they
finally pushed him into a carriage,
and said there must not be any re
fusal. Ila was at that famous
feast as an unwilling guest, and
now, since the disaster that follow,
ed, he sees more plainly than over that
he was right. This is undoubtedly
an authentic version of the rupture
that now exists between Blaine and
Messrs. Phelps and Reid.
Another special from Augusta givss
a copy of a letter from Bhiino to a
distinguished New York Democrat,
who wrote to him, expressing tli9 hope
that he (Blaine) was making no at
tempt tn influence the count of votes
in New York. Blaine replied by ssk
ing in what possible manner he could
influence it, directly or indirectly,, and
and then added: "In the 'whole con
troversy 1 have no desire except for a
fair count and an honest declaration of
the result. The Republican national
committee have acted on their jut! fo
ment nt every step, and need no ad
vice from rre. do not wish any po
litical supporters of mino in New
York to take the slightest advantage
of mrre technical defeats in any re
turns where the honest intention is ex
pressed. I ttculd far rather lose than
gain by the exclusion of returns on
technical grounds. The presidency is
not desirablo if there Le the remotest
taint on the title. Promotion of that
kind no more leads tc honor thin the

The death rate among the work
men on the Panama Canil is said to be
alarming. About forty-thousand men
are employed of whom hundreds die
monthly. Tho wages paid are high,
laborers getting 53 and $4 per day,
and skilled workmen receiving 5 50
por day. This is n grpat temptation
to m?n out of work, number of whom
take their lives in their hands nnd risk
the dangpr for the sake of employ-'
ment. When work was progressing"
on the Panama Railway it was said
"every tin marks a grave," and of the
canal it may be said "every lineal fooS
marks a death."
