THE EUGENE "JOUBNAL" IS INDIGNANT.
Somebody, who has evidently lieen to
the hurdy house a good deal, tries to
paMkite his own sins by implicating
others in the same very questionable
"pastime," and says in a letter to the
Oregonian, that nearly cvcrytoHiy of the
male persuasion iu this city are patrons
of the hurdv irurdys. At least this
would be the inference from his letter,

cento vote more times than the mind
the way things are at present. The
votes of those who have but little mind
and leas of interest in this country are
looked upon as so much purchasable
power in election times, and it is this
fact that makes corruption so hard to
eradicate from our ollicfal circles. The
vote is already in the hands of too many,
ami unless the privilege is restrained it
will work mischief. Universal suffrage
is a humbug, and if the idea is carried
out, it will le the rock upon which our
Republican Government will be totally
wrecked. The ballot is a sacred thing,
and should be guarded as such, and only
entrusted to those who can properly use
it; it is a matter of little moment
whether the voters lie male or female.
AVe eo in for taking from woman noth
ing tliat she knows how to wield.
ItnU our brother dreadfully in the fog?
While we sorrowfully admit that "dol
lars and cents voto more times than the
mind," we are not willing to admit that
it is right that this is so. When will our
masculine politicians learn that the on
ly possible cure for moral and social as
well as physical ills lies in uprooting
the very foundations of corruption, and
thereby destroying the roots of disease?
Corruption in politics is the legitimate
result of man-made laws, customs and
usages; and, until these are overthrown,
and in their stead shall arise a harmon
ious government, made and wielded by
thepeoplc, instead of less than a moi
cty thereof, then, and not till then, will
the ballot become a "sacred thing" in
practical application, as well as 111 eu
logy, bombast, theory and nonsense.
The ballot is not an instrument, to be
guided and wielded by a few sagacious,
designing politicians. It is an inherent
living, vital princtjuc, and its iower
should permeate the whole body politic.
It is not "a matter of little moment
whether the voters be male or female."
It fe a matter of great moment that they
shall be men and women.
How does our brother know that
woman does not know how to wield the
ballot? And what right would he pos
sess to take it from her if she did not
know? Is he certain that he knows how
to wield it himself? By what authority
did it come into his possession? And
may he not possibly become one of the
disfranchised class if "universal suf
frage" is ever abandoned as a "hum
bug?" To quiet his apprehensions, we
prophetically assure him that this will
never be. The car of progression never
rolls backward, but in this great onfran
cliiseing movement, as iu all others, it
will gather increased velocity until the
bands of ignoranec are burst asunder

Wives. Wo wait with a good deal of
curiosity to"ce whether tho conviction
of Hawkins in I'tah will prove the
death-blow to polygamy it was meant
to be; or, indeed, any blow at an. jjy
m odd Ictral whim, the scales ot Justice
in that much married community are
E laced, not in a blind woman's hands
ut Jn those of a wife whose eyes are
sure to be either crooked with jeal
ousy or love. As a man can be indict
ed for adultery only of the suit of his
wife, the decision in Hawkins case has
introduced a dilemma of exceedingly
nice proportions into every family circle.
Every first wife sits down to the breakfast-table
this morning with the proud
consciousness that she can oust at will
the whole detested lot or her husband's
affinities from under her roof, as Sarah
did Hagar; but with the slight draw
back of tiie fact that her Abraham goes
with them; for no man will be likely
to return to the sweetness of love's young
dream for the elderly lady who has con
demned him to line and imprisonment
for three or twenty years. After all,
there was, jierhaps, no practicable re
compense for the Mormon first wives
but that of this possible revenge; the
aflectiou which has slopped over into a
dozen unclean ways cannot be legislated
back into its first fresh fountain; it
remains to be seen in how many eases
resentment will induce the wife to give
up the small part she yetretains of her
hold on her husband for the sweets of
vengeance. The number, Ave suspect
will be small. The woman who has
borne daily contact with her rivals iu
her own house, is not likely to pluck
courage to wage public warfare against
them. But the law will be a terrible
weapon iu the hands of young wives in
future, whose territory is threatened
with invasion. A1 V. Trbune.

"Throw him over," arose front all parts
