a pathetic exhibition of patriotism, and
as most of the people are devout Catho

Senator Hill, in his magazine article
on "The Future cf the Democratic Or
ganiration," draws a gloomy pit-tore of
that party's prospects. It is trae to life,
however. In the absence ol a union be
taeen the two factions of the party there
is not the sligbest chance for it to win,
for the coalition between the silver dem
ocrats and the populists can hardiv be
renewed. A powerful element of the
populists is against any further alliance
with the democrats, and many of the
latter tnink they could have done better
in the recent campaign without fusion.
The present temper of the gold and sil
ver democrats shows that the breach in
their party is as broad as it was in the
canvass. If the republican party avoids
blunders, and the likelihood is that it
will, the outlook for democratic success
at any early day will remain dark.

The inquiry of the Tendleten paper is
pertinent. If the people have not suf

friends to become responsible to those
who elected him for the faithful dis
charge of his duties. Let the whole
people Lear the responsibility, and if he
is false to his trust let the penalty b

NOTES f ROM SALEM.
Tbe Davis bouse hat been holding its
teetloni every day, Sundays included,
but the Sunday session bat usually been
held In the evening. Last Sunday there
was a I ttle surprise sprung: When the
Davi house met st 7 o'clock there were
present seven members, including the
speaker. Se en Itensonitea weie also in
their seats and were, accerJing to -custom,
enrolled as present. Brown ol the
Benson house, move J to adjourn till 11 :3t
Monday evening, but bit motion was lost
ou a tie vote. The ttontou meu then ob
jected to Speaker Davis voting except ou
rollcall. Davis acquiesced and the mo
tion was then made and carried to ad
journ till 11 45 Monday night, the Ln
ton men voting aye and the Pavla men
no. The whole matter was intended as
a joke, and created considerable annuo
msnt tor the Beuton men, at the ex
pense of the unsuspecting lvi mem
ber. Kut the motion had prevailed and
there was no help (or it, accordingly the
Monday session of the Davis houre did
not take place till 15 rninuto before
midnight. The Davibites, however, look
advantage of the conditions aud wheu it
adjourned it was to 13:03 Tuesday morn
ing. At that time the house was called
to order and another adjournment taken
to Wednesday at V:80 a. m. So that
practically they covered two seesiout and
two days within the space of SO minutes.
Now tbe whole business, senato and
both houses, are out of favor with the
ministerial association of Salem. At a
meeting the other day that body adopted
the following resolution :
"Heeolved, that we, the meiuiers of
the ministerial association of Salem, Or
egon, refuse to prny iu either the senate
or house chambers until the legislature
Is unitedlv at work.''
Kvery once io a while the ministerial
union makes the legislature tbe subject
of discussion. Wheti everything moves
on smoothly the ministers apportion
themselves brlwren the houses and pray
In turn. A few years ago one of the city
pastors contended that he ought to Imve
two prays to the other folks one because
bit congregation was twice as large.
But it didn't work, and neither house
cared who invoked divine blessing for
them, or whether it was invoked at all or
not. It was cn'y by courtesy any way,
and if tho ministers did not happen to
be on hand prcmptly the busintss went
on without waiting.
The story is told that tome years ago
Joab Powell, the eccentric pioneer
preacher, was engaged as chap'ain for
the session at f I pei day. As the con
stitution prohibits tbe payment of the
public money for praters the members
had determined to subscribe theamcuot.
Juab came and held lorth for a few days,
then the solons concluded they did not
need any more prayer, bat the chaplain
would not be choked off unless ho was
paid tbe full amount lor which be had
made hit pilgrimage to tbe capital and
they hd to dig up.
Senator Dufur of Wasco, mada a
speech, it will be remembered, in the
joint convention last Friday, io which he
severely scored the members who wer
holding on. The senator from Wasco is
a dem'icrat and it is generally under
stood ill do anything to further the in
terests of Senator Mitchell without di
rectly voting for him, and might do that
if it was absolutely necessary. But a
Salem paper commented on that speech
in a manner that did not please the sen
ator and the objectionable paragraph
"I throw my bill for a portage railroad
to relieve the farmers of Eastern Oregon
to the dogs. What Oregon needs is a
funding bill senator to help the Pacific
railroads rob the farmers.'' Senator
This brought the senator to bis feet
Tuesday morning on a question of privi
lege and he then characterized the state
ment as a "malicious falsehood and one
that was manufactured out of whole
cloth." Of coorse the senator did not
uss the words attributed to him, and
every one knows be didn't. It was only
an "Hoferic" way of stating what the
effect of bit wordt were. A staid aud
dignified senator, and a lawyer, too,
onght to have known that and should
not have clothed it with respectability
by referring to it in the senate.
The sick list continues to grow rather
than abate. Vaughan and Hudson
had a monopoly for a while but
now McKinley Mitchell, Veness and
Senator Dawson are added to the list.
It was found necessary to take Hudson
to the hospital and he will probably re
main there for some days. In fact, if
the session terminate! on Friday he will
take no further part in it. Mitchell's ab
sence on Monday was attributed to de
fection, but he responded to roll call In
joint convention Tuesday and asked to be
excused for Wednesday.
There it something about Salem that
always causes a large percentage of sick
nets among members and others iu at
tendance, at tbe legislative sessions. It
ii generally attributed to the water.
But tbe increased demand for liquid re
freshment bat not been noticed by the
Neither house is pretending to do any
thing. Tbe sessions of the renate are
about at perfunctory as those of the
house, or houses. No effort bat been
made to pass a bill though several have
reached tbe order of third reading and
are '"dy for consideration. But the
qui i ion has been mooted as to whether
or not a bill passed by tbe senate w hen
the "Legislature" was not in session,
would have any standing in court if
tested. Jt takes both house and senate
to make the legislature, and at the sen
ate does not recognize the Houso as or
ganised this may account for fact that
tbe senate baa not vet pawed a bill.
At during the past five weeks and
more, something is always promised for

irrrttievably gone. The
mnn wlio works on and

health and ton busy lo
occasionally take a little
iinen'tiry medicine, is
committing suicide at
lutely us if lie turned a pNtol on his heart.
Such a man dies by little degrees 1 nt a

The very sleeping loom of a ni.in in thin
condition is filled in the morning with tin
wholesome odor as if it had been occupied
by a decomposing corpse. It has been oc.
cupled by u man hulfdend The poisoned

Then come tho resort to the hypodermic
Injection of morphine and speedy death
All this tuny h prevented by the use of
Dr. Pierce's Gulden Medical Discovery. It
corrects ull disorders of the digestion,
makes assimilation perfect, fills the blood
with the vital element tlut make new It,
