contest w over ami Dolpli is neieateu.
Ex-Secretary of State George W. Mc-
Brido, a native- Oregonian, was elected
tonight on the GOth ballot of tho BCSBion
and tho 23rd of tho night. His official
vote was 72, against 10 for W. D. Haro
(pop.), six for James II. Raley (deni.)
and one for J. K. Wcatherford (dem.).
Just at midnight President Simon, of tho
joint convention, formoily annoumed his
Tlio hall of representatives, tho corri
dors, tho galleries aud ovory other con
venient space in tho btate house was
never so crowded vuth humanity
was last night from 7 o'clock to
night. Public excitement had been
nrouted to such a pitch' tliat persons ro;
maiued at tho hall all tlio afternoon and
evening, accompanied by their lunches
sons tub. euro favorable ositions und
seats. Long beforo the joint convention
assembled every seat, chair, desk, rail
ing, window soat and platform step, was
occunicd. while staudinc room was
packed liko a sHrdiuo box. So soon us
tho balloting began tho greatest possible
anxiclv was aroused. Arrangements
had bevn made for transmitting bulletins
to tho secretary of stale's olficeand thence
to tho masses in the outer corriders and
upon receipt of each succeeding result
the noiso of the public discussion of its
meritB could bo heard within the houe.
On tho first ballot tho Dolph forces were
greatly cheered by the return lo their
ranks of Smiih of Clackamas and Gowan'
who had left them temporarily ut tho
afternoon tension, and then the general
belief was that tho diu van cjst and there
would lie no election. Through all tho
wcarv round oi twenty-two lallots the.
crowd remained, the monotony being re
lieved at intervals by the "change of
horse'' at each "relay'" of the anti-Dolph
republicans. They led out for the eve
ning's race with Williams, hut dropped
him early fur Judge J. B. Waldo, who
they left after two bdlot.-t for Foltoa, to
whom they attached themselves for ten
ballots, but were comiKilled to drop him.
The only acceession of note to tho Ful
ton standaid was Senator Browncll of
Clackamas, who broke from Dalph on
tho fifth ballot of the evening the forty
first of the total. The next man la-let led
was Tongue, but Mr. Browncll shifted lo
George W. Mcltride, as did Senalor Holi-
son on tho next, aud after live ballots
without gain the antis took up Governor
Lord and two ballots were had as the
clock pointed half an hour of midnight.
The crowd was in good hnmor socially,
as a few boxes of oranges sent in by
Dolph had iieen brought in and scattered
and thrown all over the house in boyish,
sportive glee, a short timo before.
Everybody was happy aud the time was
riie for a crisis. The opportunity was
t-r-tannl liv Plraton of Columbia, who in !
I - j
a few well choson words recited hc well
Known conditions and his previous loy
alty to Dolph, ending with the announce
ment of his intention to vote for George
W. Mcflride. The roll call proceeded
and the first representative from the
Dolph rank to step to the ilcBrido col
umn was J. 1.. uaivert oi itiu county.
The first senator to take a like step was
Dr. Calbrcath of Yamhill. Senators
Hobson and Patterson and Speaker
M cores also took their positions for Mr.
McBride and when the roll call was com
pleted ho had forty-two votes, cy three
short of enough to elect. Following is
the vote as between Mr, Dolph and Mr.-McBride:
Dolpli Bancroft. Bench, Blundell,
Bridges, Cardwcll, Carter. Conn, Daly,
David, Dawson, Denny, Gesner, Gowan,

Smith of Polk then changed his votu to
McBride; then Templetou ami then
Bridges. The atiiionnccinent of Dridges
was tho signal for a wild demonstration
of delight, for it meant an election.
Members stood on their drsks and
cheered and tho noiso was deafening.
Smith of Clackamas and George .Myers
next secured recognition and changed.
Then Price, Steiqer, Woodaid and Daw
son. The list of Dolph names was called
off. Those not changing their vote wore:
Bancroft, lieach, Blundell, Cardwell,
David, Moorhead, Paxton, Simon, Smith
of Josephine and Thompson.
Paxton then jumped upon his desk
anil moved to make tho vote of tho re
publicans unanimous for McBride. Mc
Ginn seconded tho motion, and it was
carried without dissent, and President
Simnii nnnotincod that tho clerk would
record all republican names as voting for
McBride. unless somo objected. No ono
objecting, tho vote of the GOth ballot was

should tie lo do nil in his tower to Imr

party and srrvi! tlm people of the tlati
well. Cries woro then mado for Fulton,
Tongue, McGinn, Barkley and others.
Barkloy mudu u clo.er npeneb, extolling
tho republican party, and urging it to
scttlo tho financial question. Fulton
was greeted with tumultuous cheering,
and made a brief speech in his best form ;
enthusiastic from party standpoint; full
of witty sallies, and eloquent ot tho pros
purity he predicted for the country under
tho return of republicans to power.
Tougue also spoke, congratulating tho
party upon settling its differences in its
own ranks and presenting a united front
to tho common enemy. Both Fulton
and Tongue wero given three cheers.
Tho latter paid a high tribute to Dolph,
and said McBride would also come back
with a good record. Tho joint conven
tion was then dissolved on motion of
Raley, and tho house then ndj-mrucd
witli three cheers for Speaker Moures,
led hv Paxton.
The report of tho joint com nittee to in
vestigate tho Soldiers Homo was submit
ted Thursday, and is quite a readable
document. It is quito voluble, and is
also written with quite a good deal of
.flourish and style. It commences by
.saying the committeo found the Homo
qnite pleasantly situated near Rosoburg,
;etc, etc. Fault is fouud with about
everything. that was done, and in conclu
sion the report says:
"Jn view, therefore, of nil tho informa
tion obtained and evidenco produced to
substantiate tlioso undeniable f.iclK, your
committee would earnestly recommend
that tho nomination of tho present board
of trustees bo not confirmed; and while
your committee hnye no occasion to criti
rise in any manner tho treatment uf the
inmates by the officers in charg. vet
there are other and cogent reason which
prompt us to recommend that tho higher
officers of tho Homo lie superseded by
others, uud that lliuenlire management o!
this institution lie placed under the con
trol of a new administration ; anil we will
go farther and say that we helieve that
suit should be brought by I lie proper officer
to compel the trustees to account for the
money placed in their hands and lo return
tho amount illegally taken by thcui.
But for this trouble in the aff.iirn of the
Homo and cloud upon its management,
the recipients of its euro are nowise le
sponsiblo, nor should tho legislative as
sembly lie influenced by what has oc
curred in doing an act of juM ice lo these
men. For want of accomodation the ad
missions lo the Home ceased r-cveral
months since. There are at pres-eut in
tbe Home 53 inmates, and If proper ac
commodations could be reenred, the
number would bo doubled within the
year. This claf s of persons must be suh-
lorted by the state in some way, but in
no way as cher ply as at the home."

Oregon vs. California.
Wo interviewed Israel Pofcct, who has
juat returned from California after over a
mouth's sojourn in that etate. He re
ports rather a lamentable condition ex
isting among tho people in some parts.
Much distress was prevailing at Lo3 An
gcloj on account of hard timis, some of
tha people being in absolute want for the
necessaries of life and no means with
which to procuro them. In the region of
country contiguous to Chico, Marysville
and other points tho country was almost
inuudated with water, thev having had
the heaviest rains ever known there.
The future for them seemed dark and
gloomy, and many, had they tho means,
would come to Oregon, where they say
"v.e aro all rigjit." "Rainy Oregon" is
still in the lead of all localities for mak
ing a pleasant home, where kind nature
never fails to reward the husbandman
with abundant harvests und the best of
health. As wo write now, the gentle
rain is descending, which gives assur
ance of good crops the coming season,
without uuy fear or apprehension of
flooded district. The man who has a
home in Oregon may thank Providence
that tho thought entered his mind toetni
grate from the East, and taking Greely's
H.lvice, "Go West." S. S.

A Pertinent Query.

How then can tho average man, who has

the judge is to tell him what the law is

from ignorance of the law or the interest

Passes Away Suddenly at His Home
Washington. Fe'i. 20. Frederick
Douglas, ihs n-jtsd colored orator,
dropped dead at hi-i ho.no in Anacostu.
His death was due to heart failure au.t
was entirely unexpected as he had been
in the best of health. During the after
noon he attended the convention of
women of the United State) inthiscitv
and chatted with Susan B. Anthony and
other lending member?, with whom he
had been on intimate terms for many
ycars.t When he returned hom he 6aid
nothing of any feeliug of illness, though
he expressed himself as being a little ex
hausted from Ihe climb nitairs leading
from the street to his house, whioh i on
a high terrace, lie sat down and chat
ted with his wife .io;ii the women a'
the convention. Suddenly ho gasped,
clapped his hand-j Ut nis heart and fell
back uncon-dous. Within twenty min
utes of the attack the motion of tho heart
cea?ed and the exI.ivo statesman was
dead. Mr. Douglas leaver two sons and
a daughter, children of his first wife.
His second wife, who is a white woman,
The story of his second marriage is a
romantic one. Ml- Helen Pitts, whom
he married, was a New E i-ilaud wemau
of middle age, a clerk in the office of the
recorder of deeds iu the office of the Dis
trict of Columbia, when Djuglas was ap
pointed to that, office. She was a mem
ber of a literary society to which he be
longed. They wero thro.vn much to
gether and finally became engiged. Her
relatives opposed the union bitterly on
account of his color, but finally yielded.
Travelers on the Southern Pacific sys
tern between Portland and San Fran
Cisco, if they are observant, will notice
that the old fashioned system of having a
bell cord reaching through tho entire
length of the trains has been done away
with tecently and tho cars on passenger
trains are now all equiped with extra
air compliances forpign.illiug the engiuc,
the same as is in use on eastern roads.
The cord reaching through each car con
nects separately with the air and thence
with the engiue, and under this system
it is as easy to signal the engine from the
rear car of n long train as from the one
next tho tender.

THE NEW ENGLAND SUPPER.
Mr. and Airs. McKenzie Entertain
Ye Old F'.Iks.
By invitation we were present at the
ITew England supper given by Mr. and
Mrs. W. A. McKenzie at their handsome
reddaccs cn Mosher street, Saturday
evening. Mr. and Mra. McKenzie wel
comed all present with great cordiality,
and acted tbe part of host and hostess
with that genuine hospitality truly char
acteristic of them. Mrs. Woolley, who
assisted the host and hostess in receiving
and entertaining the guest, wan droned
in snowy white, representing a Iohs of 12
or 14 years of age and presented a lovely
picture of youth and beanty. We will
here note some of tho ancient relics that
came under our observation. On the
piano were fonr solid silver candlesticks,
being heirlooms in tho Wallenberg fam
ily for several generations, and which
wero brought from Germany b mem
bers of that family. They reminded ns
of our youthful days, when in Albany,
N. Y., all of tho old Dutch families had
their mantle pieces adorned with similar
household silverware. These candle
sticks, were about twenty in lies in
heighth ami were of elaborate workman
ship. No doubt they aro highly prized
by the descendants of their ancient
German ancestors. Mrs. Briggs was ar
rayed in a silk dress that was made in
New York fifty years ago. Mrs.- Selilen
woro ear rings which had been in her
family for the past fifty years. "Auntie"
Grnbbe, the eldest lady present, she be
ing past 77, was dressed in silken garb
which had been in the family for half a
century. Mrs. Mckenzie displayed a
shawl which had been preserved for fifty
years. A snuffbox which had lec in
the Godfrey family was there. Mrs.
Applehoff exhibited a sampler made by
her mother in ISIS, which showed marks
of artistic handiwork, and then there
was a bed spread of the Godfrey family
which had done fifty years Fervicc, and
many old pictures adorned the walls of
the rooms. Among them was one of
George Washington surrounded by his
family, which almost tempted us to dis
play our oratory in memory of that dis
tinguished revolutionary patriot. Aud
now came tin- grand New England enp
pcrintheold ancient style, and when
the old folks sat down to that sumptuous
repast of boiled beans, brown bread and
pnmpkin pie, it wns n time of much
mirth and merriment to the happy
i guests, and had a stranger stepped in, he
would have imagined that they were
raised on Leans, as they were still eating
beans, and seemed determined to fill np
on beans if it took all summer. Over
our heads as we 3at around the frugal
board was expended strings of dried
apples ami corn as a reminder ihat the
old time way of drying apples and shuck
ing corn still lingered in memory. There
might have been some ancient relics
that esi-aped onr observation, as we were
so attracted by tiie joyonsntss of the
assembled guests that attention was cen
tered on them. As we entered the
happy domicile ww were creete-J most
courteonsIy and kindly by host and
hostess and all present, and soon after
onr entrance, when the humorous song
of Cousin Jedediah was sung and all
sang the chorus, "Won't we.haye a jolly
time, andw e'il all take tea," we for the
moment thought that the dancing a jig
was down on the programme. They all
appeared to be Cousin Jedediahs, and
the manifetatioi s of a jolly timo were
clearly apparent. Iu tl-.e songs Ming
Master Edwin McKenzie playjd the ac
companiment upon tbe piano. Master
Edwin with fair opportunities gives
promise of being an accomplished musi
cian. There were abont forty guests
present. It wus such a gathering of old
folks as is seldom witnessed in Roseburg,
mid the joy of ail seemed complete. It
could not be otherwise with such a host
and hostess to contribute to tbe mjoy
metit of their guests. Auld Lang Syce
was sun-.: with spirit, an 1 at abont the
timo of departure for our respective
ernes that heart cheering old cong of
