Shortly afhr tlie election of
Senator J. II. .Mitchell, we ven
tuictl a jiioiliei that the editor
of the ''Oieguiyaii" would oppose
the Republican ticket, it mattered
not who wis limn it. ,The course
of the "Otcgotiiaii" feiuue the elec
tion Jts vciified our picdietiona
to a letter. "So ooouer was the
"Republican ticket in the field
when ho began to attack it with
all the ability 4iu possesed emptj'i
ing out his pint of roal'ce on the
Leads of men that never did him

tin " eie formerly friendly
to John 1 1. ..iitcheil. lie now
'claims thai the deleat ot the Be
publicans is due .10 the Mitchell
influence "and l'oitland ring. It
requires but little thought to de
termine the tiue eauo of the Re
publican defeat. The fitsr, and
perhaps the most effectual cause
is the defectiou iu the ranks of the
party. The heavy and spiiited
opposition to the eleuion of
Judge Waldo by a largo and nil
flicufial chits of Republicans in
Portland, had undoubtedly a
tendency todcmoiiiization of the
parly iu Multnomah comity, as
well as the entire State. Auothei
cause, of no little impoftauce. it
t le heavy draft made upon us by
fie Prohibitionists ticket, which
doubtless, if we take Jackson
'county as a lest, drew ten to one
from the Republican party. Tlie
above reasonu has lead us to bo
lievo that Mitchell figured but
Utile in this election except in
the imagination of Scott, who-e
Jiatred for Mitchell and desire for
tho Republican .party, would
naturally lead him to the con
clusions ho has 1 cached. Again
we do not believe th'e people oi
the State aie" so much intere.-ted
in Scott's" hatied to Mitchell, as
to cause them to abandon their
choice and principles, simply to
-gratify his icvcnge iigaiiift a man
I13 uphold; jand defended long
after the attacks wcie made upon
him. 0 believe wo leno.v the
feeling of Soulliciu Oregon, in ic
lation to the two mei Mitchell
and Scott; and we do not lic.iitate
to say 'that Mitchell with his
good ability, energy and prompt
ncss to attend to the wants of the
people of the State, i prcfonod
to Scotr, who, for years, seemed
to have uo. olhcr object than to
gratify his personal revenge with,
out regard to results." If we mutt
have a boss, and the choice is be
tween Scott aud 'Mitchell, we say
for heavens sake give us Mitcn
The constitution of tho State
of Oregon provides,' in Article
two See. ten; as follow'?: 'Xo
person holdiug a lucrative office
or appointment under the United
States, or under this State,, shall
bo elligiblc to a seat iu tho lejji
islativo assembly; nor shall any
person hold mote than one lucra
tive office at the same time, ex
cept as in this constitution ex.
pressly peunitted, provided that
officers in the millitia, to which
there is attached no annua salary,
and the office of postmaster,
whnre the compensation does not
exceed one bundled dollars per
annum, shall not be deemed lu
dative." It appears that Mr.
Walton and Mr. llubboll, were
both holding the office of Re
corder, when elected, which, tin
derour constitution, are lvct.ativh
offices. When a person is elected
to the office of Recorder, ho is

his office, within his jurisdiction, this tribute of respect to this ven

The question of eligibility has

Mrs. Rbrxln Boone T'Vault was
born in Bowling Green, Ken.
tucky, Kov. 19th, 1810. and died
at her home in Jacksonville June
4th, 188G, ngeil-75 years. Herfathi
er removed with his family to
Warick county, Indiana whenshe
was 11 years of ago. They set
tied near Booneville on a farm
which still belongs to deccudauts
of the family. Mrs. T'Vault was
a great grand-daugter of Daniel
Boone, Kentucky's famous pio
neer. In her 17th year she uni
ted with the Cumberland Presby
terian church, and never changed
her firm adherence to the tenets
of that church. She was married
to Col. W. G. T'Vault July 11th
1820 and five children Pere born
to them, tvyoof whom died in in
fancy. In 1845 Col. T'Vault and
family crOBsed the plains to Ore
gon and settled in Oregon City
then a tradng post of
the Hudson Ray Company.
At Oiegon City a few years later,
Col. T'Vualt published the Ore
gon "Spectator," the first paper
ever published in Oregon. Dun
ing the time Mrs. T'Vault re
sided at Oregon City she endeared
herself to the hearts ofOiegou'a
earliest pioneer by her many
acts of kindness and hospitality.
When tho dark clouds of peri!
and privation, lowered most
threateningly over the hearts and
homes of tho brave pioneer her
generosity was unfrfling and all
met kindly cheer, aud greeting
around her piimitive bearthstope.
In 1So2 they removed to Rogue
River Valley aud shortly after
settled on the Dardanelles f.irm
on Rf.gue river, the first family
that settled on a farm in this vab
ley. In 1855 Col. T'Vault came
t) Jack;om-ilIe and began the
publication ol the Oregon Se.nth
nel, the first paper published in
th's valley. Since that time Mrs.
T'Vault has resided permanently
in Jacksonville. In 1857, George,
their only son, a young man of
great promise, who but a few
months bcfoic had been taken in
full paitner&hip with his father
in the publication of tho Semixel,
died, a bereavement that fell with
life long agony on the devoted
parents hearts. During the small
pox epidemic of 1SG9, Col. T
Vault died of that disease aud ja
few years later their invalid
daughter, St. Marion passed away,
and since that time Mrs. T'Vault
has lived with her widowed
daughter, Mrs. E. JTenney, car
ing with the totiderest devotion
for her three orphaned graud
children dunngithcir -infancy and
youth. As life shadows were
lengthening, and the faithful
heait of the old pioneer hailed tho
East that heralded the dawu of
tho brighter daY7lfef- daughter,
grand-children and great grand
children gave her every care and
devotion, and pioneer friends
wafted to her kindly greeting that
they had cherished for a lifetime.
Thus closed the eventful life of
the brave-hearted and loving
pioneer, who began her life work
when Oregon was a wilderness,
and completed it, surrounded by
every comfort of modern times.
May her spirit rest in peace until
the last reunion ofchc old pidueers
around the camp fire of Eternity.

A curious evasion of the payi
rnent ot duty of imported wool is
reported to the treasur3' depart
ment. A flock'of sheep was driv
en across the Mexican border,
and duty assessed on them as
live stock. They were then
sheared, and the wool placed on
the market without having been
subjected to duty. The scheme
resulted iu a saving of about 50
per cent, in tbe matter of duty.
