In asyering my connections with tbia

HOW DE DO?
The undersigned baa purcbaaed the in
terest of W. F. Benjamin in the Plain
dealer and with this issue assumes ed
itorial control thereof. The Plats-
' dealer in the future, as in tbe past, will
be a republican paper; a firm believer in
' and an advocate of tbe principle (anun
ciated by the representatives of tbe party
at St. Louis last year. It will not follow
tbe name, wherever it may lead, simply
for tbe name's sake, bit so long as that
party stands for the doctrine advocated
by its great leaders, "whose names
adorn and dignify tbe scroll upon which
is ioscriDed their country's history," its
influence and its voice will be given to
the republican party freely and cheer
folly, mindful at all times that its mis
sion is that of a newspapers and not a
party organ. It will have opinions, and
will express them on all matters of pub
lic concern without fear or favor. It
will be tbe organ of no clique or faction
and will have no pets except wben tbe
political organization with which it
affillistes, through its representatives,
places a ticket io the field for tbe soi
. frages of the peoole, then tbe candidates
will be it pets. It will be devoted to
the interests of Oregon and of Douglas
county in particular, disseminating each
information as will bring to tbe beauti
ful vales of tbe Umpqua and its tributa
ries a desirable immigration. lis criti
cisms Will be courteous, even if severe,
and tbe anlmadverriona resorted to by
small minds will be avoided. A news
paper ia a power for good or evil la the
community in which it is published, and
the guidance of tbe angels of good ia fer
vently desired. J. B. Eddy.
THE PACIFIC RAILROAD.
At last the government is taking a
proper course in regard to its liena on
the Pacific railroads the Union Pacific
and Central Pacific. When these great
enterprises were undertaken, partly as
war measures, to connect the Pacific
coast states with those east of tbe Rocky
mountain!, to bind them more firmly to
the Union, they were not only granted
lands sufficient to form an empire but
the government lent its credit In vast
sums to aid in the construction thereof,
ThiB credit w as made a lien of second
mortgage on the properties to be paid at
the end of 30 year. That looked then
like a long time to look forward to, but
the time has passed and the mortgage is
due. The companies cannot pay tbe
debt. Various echeicea have been pro
duced in congress to fund the debt and
extend the time of payment for a long
period. These schemes have all failed
to receive the sanction of congress, and
at last aa stated at tbe outset, tbe gov
ernment is taking tbe preliminary steps
' to forcloee its lien in the Union Pacific.
Tbia is right and proper. Let an upset
' price be eet and the property offered to
tbe highest bidder. It is not expected
that tbe government will get its money
back or anything like; but let it get what
it cao, and wben tbe road is Bold, sub
led to the first mortgage as it must be,
then let it be capitalized at the cost to
tbe purchaser, namely, the amount of
tbe bid and the prior lieu, and rates of
frelghta and fares fixed in accordance
therewith and (he people will immedi
ately deilve tbe benefit. The people,
who are really tbe government, will get
heir money back .in that nay,

iJbiXS'JK Cm, Jan. 25. Another at
tempt was made to break into the Ore
gon City, poetoffice last night. At one
side of the iron outer doors guarding the
rear entrance tbe brick was chipped
away for the evident pnrpoie of releas
ing the bar that bolts tbe doors. Tbe
doors muBt have been closely examined
beforehand, and a very good estimate
made of tbe point where the bar would

A. H. Moore came down last Frldsy

but sharp fight near 1 Jobo, west of
Guinea, in which Weyler's vanguard was

Spaniards, attracted by tbe firing, came
up and drove tbe insurgents off in con
fusion. Tbe two combined forces then
swept tbe field, with a loss of 100 rnsn,

THE SENATE'S POSITION.
Salbm, Or., Jan. 25. Tbe lobby ot the
senate chamber waa crowded this after
noon in anticipation of action on the
house concurrent lesolutlon to notify the
governor ol tbe organisation ot the legis
lature. The resolution failed to put in
an appearance; but tbe matter came up
in another form ou a resolution by Sena
tor King, which was lost on a tie vUe,
and subsequently by a decisive ruling ol
President Simon, which was distinctly
against recognition ot thoHenson Hons..
King (populist) ot Baker and Malheur
asked unanimous consent to Introduce a
resolution. There was no objection, and
King sent to the clerk's desk the follow
Ing: "Whereas, There appears to be some
question as to whether the bouse of rep
resentatives, comprising the oilier
branch ct this legislative astcmbl.v, has
organised and is ready to prove"! with
business; that there is one organisation
ot such house claiming to be the tempo
rary house, duly oraniafd as such, and
one organisation, claiming to U H-im fl
uent and duly organized ; that tl o senate
has not been notified by resolution of
such permanent organization; that this
branch of the legislative assembly cannot
perform legislative dutits for which its
members were elected without the con
currence of the house of representatives
on all bills and joint resolutions passiug
this body ; that this branch of the legis
lative aseerablv has for two weeks beeu
organized and ready for the transaction
of business, and the ctuso of such delay
on ths part of the houeo of representa
tives has not been fully made known to
this body; therefore,
"Resolved. That a committee of three
members of the senate be sppointed to
examioe into the conditions abovu tet
forth and ascertain whether or not either
of the two pretended organizations of tbe
house of representatives is a legally or
gaulaed branch of this assembly ami, if
ao, which of the two is so organized, and
report tbe conditions thereof to the sen
ats st asearly a date as may bo deemed
practicable by said committee."
This brought up the matter of house
recognition in an expected for in. Pat
terson of Marion at once saw th cirect
of the resolution, and ho moved to lay
on tbe table, thus shutting off debate.
Driver, however, asked that the resolu
tion be read again, which was done.
President Simon then put the'ir.otion to
lay on the table, snd tbe motion was
lost cc viva voce vote. Then Gowm
started a brief debate.
"After tbe gentleman has got through
bis long list of 'whereases,' " he said,
"he lands just where he started, and I'd
like to know what the deuce he's going
to do about if."
"Tbe senator does not understand the
actual facts," responded King. "It is
absolutely necessary for us to know
whether tbe other braucb of this legisla
ture is legally organized; otherwise, it is
obvious that we can do no business."
Driver declared that it waa not in the
province ot this body to imjuire into tbe
status of the other house. "We can't
settle that question here," he said
"None of us can, unless he's elevated to
the supreme bench."
The discussion stopped here, and the
call ot tbe ayes and noes being de
manded, the roll-call a tie vote, as fol
lows: Ayee Bates, Daiy, Daw6ou, Holt,

Tbe senate proceeded with the second
reading of bills, but bad not gone far
wben Representative Crawford of Doug
las, appeared in the lobby and handed a
paper to Doorkeeper Btuodell, who an
nounced a message from tbe house
Tbe message waa delivered to President
Simon, who opened and read it, and
then said :
"Tbe chair ia in receipt of a com muni
cation purporting to be a message from
the house stating that the bouse hat-
effected permanent organization by elect
ing Hon. H. L. Benson as speaker, R
R Hays as chief clerk snd otbor officers,
nd is ready for tbe transaction of bui-i
nets. Tbe chair has already submitted
to tbe senate a message from- the tem
porary organization ct the bouse, ad vis
ing tbe senate that such permanent or
ganization waa effected in an irregular
and unconstitutional manner and with
out the presence of a quorum, and that
each action was illegal and void. Tbe
chair ia of the opinion tbst no per ma
nent orgniisation of tbe bou-e has
been effected an 1 that the pretended
permanent organization, without a quo
rum mentioned in this communication,
Is not valid or binding, and that the sen
ate cannot recognize such an alleged
permanent organization of tbe boui-e,
. . i t i
1 06 Ctiair, inereiore, declines i uuier
taiu or receive tbis communication, and
rules that tbe same cannot beenteied
ution tbe journal. This decision will
sts -! as tbe judgment of tbe senate, un
lee . the senste will overrule tbe decision
of the chair."
Tbe president's ruling was received in
silence by ths senate, which appeared to
think tbat it was entirely correct, and it
would be useless to attempt to set it
aside, even it so disposed. Crawford
waited until the cud of the chair's an
nouncement, and then withdrew. The
matter did not again come up during the
Tried to do Business.

Brow n moved that it be referred to a
