A statement prepared by the com
missioner of immigration shows the
number of immigrants who arrived
in this country in the fiscal year end
ing June 30, 1896, to have been 343,
267, as compared with 258,526 dur
ing the fiscal year ending 1895.
Of the whole number 212,466 were
males 130,801 females. The coun
tries from which the imigrants came
are given as follows: Austro-Hun-gary,
65,103; Italy, 68,080; Russia,
58,816; Germany, 31,885; United
Kingdom.64,637; all other countries

and returned during that year was
3,037, as follows: Paupers, 2,010;
contract laborers, 776; idiot, 1; in
sane, 1 ; diseased, 2. Returned with
in one yea. hecause of their having
become public charges, 258. The
total number debarred and returned
in 1895 was 2,586.

Pendleton East Oregonian: It
mav interest some people in Pendle
ton as well as all over the land, to
know that Joaquin Miller lias de
clared for P.ryan for president and
will take the platform to help along
his election. The old poet loves
his fellow man, and he considers by
helping the brotherhood of man
which aggrandized wealth is des
troying. We say with fervor hur
rah, for the old poet! His voice is
the voice of Oregon, for he is a true
son of Oregon, who flies with her
own wings, as all truly Democratic
things should fly.
The 0. A. C. President.
The board of regents of the Ore
gon Agricultural college held a
a meeting last Tuesday afternoon,
at which time they elected a presi
dent of that institution to succeed
Prof. J. M. Bloss, who recently re
signed. The principal candidate for
that position was Hon. H. B. Miller,
of Grants Pass, and Mr. Miller was
the successful candidate also. In
the selection of a president a strong
fight was made, some of the regents
feeling that it would be to the best
interests oft he school to place a
man ot known reputation as an ed
ucator at the head of the institution.
However, this element of the board
ot regents was voted down by a vote
of eight to five.
The action of the board in the
selection of Mr. Miller, as president,
does not give satisfaction to friends
of the school in this county. Mr.
Miller has many warm political
friends hee, and is esteemed as a
gentleman of honor and integrity,
but there is a firm belief that he has
no qualification as an educator.
There is also a strong belief among
the friends of the O. A. C. in this
county that there should be an ab
solute divorcement of the school
from polotics, and the selection of
Mr. Miller is trpnprnllv lnnlcprl nnrm

Illinois A Doubtful State.
The Times-Herald, the great
McKinley organ of Chicago, re
ports Mr. Jameson, chairman of the
republican state committee of
Illinois, as saying: "Illinois is
not in the republican column to
day." He says it is a time for
plain speaking and he tells the
republicans that "that young fire
brand, Bryan, will land himself in
the white house if the republicans
continue to underestimate the force
of the movement behind him."
They don't seem to be able to
realize that the country has gone
from bad to worse under their
financial management until there is
a general revolt among the common
people. The people may not know
what the proper remedy is, but
they know the republicans are
responsible for the present condi
tion of affairs and they think any
change is better than to keep 011
under republican laws that avail
naught but oppression to the masses.
Hence, the sentiment in favor of
some change, almost any change,
is prevalent among the people of all

The fame of Newport as a sum
mer resort does not lessen with the
lapse of time, but on tbe other hand
grows year by year. The number
of visitors and campers there now
equal the number at this time any
other year, and each coast bound
train adds three or four loaded coach
es of pleasure seekers to the crowd.
The high water mark will probably
be reached about the middle of
August, when there will probably
be the largest crowd at Newport,
that that popular summer resort has.
There is a general demand over
the state for the abolition of the June
election, on account of the added
cost. While it is true that the ex
pense of a double election is some
what heavy, yet it must be remem
bered that the expense of an extra
election has to be borne but once in
every four years. And it must also
be remembered that in Oregon, par
ticularly in "Webfoot" Oregon,
the month of November is usually
one of much rain fall, and in rural
districts a large percentage of votes
would be kept away from the polls
by reason thereof.

We cannot help but feel hat
there has been a very unfortunate
mistake made in the selection of a
president. There is a certain feel
ing against the Agricultural college
in existence throughout the state
already. This feeling was in a fair
way of being overcome bv the care
ful management of the school, and
had the standard of the school and
its officers been kept high, this feel
ing would have soon died out. But
as it is now all the old antagonism
will be aroused.
At the meeting besides selecting
a president the board also chose
Miss Helen V. Crawford, of Albany
as instructor of elocution; H. F.
Condon, of Eugene, was made sten-
ograpner, dook Keeper ana pur-j
chasing agent; Prof. Berchtold, was
made deau of the college, and Geo.
Clark and Lester M. Lelaud were
given charge of the printing department.
If the populists are in earnest in
their support ot the principle of
free coinage, let them go at it in a
business way. The thing for them
to do is to withdraw Watson as a
vicepresidential candidate and give
Bryan and Sewall a hearty support.
There is no time now to be divided
by the influences of the single
Astoria Regatta. '
Astoria will hold its third annual
regatta during the week of August
18-22, which will include the
State Firemen's tournment. The
battleship Oregon will Be in the
harbor during the week, and one
of the features will be an ocean race
between two of the fastest schooners
on the Pacific coast. Astoria is
making great preparations for the
event, and expects to entertain at
least 20,000 people.
operations of government it is only
a collecting and disbursing agency
collecting such taxes as congress
has authorized, and paying out the
money as directed by law. It
would be an ideal condition ot"
things if the Treasury Department
received each morning; iust the
j sum of money it had to pay out
i that day no surplus money out of
i use in its vaults, no deficit to be
met by loans. But things cannot
be so nicely adjusted. Wars make
burdens that a single generation
cannot bear, and they must, in
part, be put over upon other gener
ations, by the sale of time bonds
bearing interest. Out of the great
expenditure for the supression of
the rebellion of 1861 it has come to
pass that the government furnishes,
either directly or through the
national banks, all of the money
used by the people. The Treasury
Department is now a great bank.
and no longer a mere public col
lecting and disbursing agency. It
issues paper money, receives it in
payment of customs duties and
internal taxes, and pays it out again
for salaries, supplies and public
works. It is also required to re
deem tbe greenbacks and treasury
notes to give coin in exchange foi
them if demanded."

All doubt as to Tammany's in
tentions concerning the Chicago
ticket and platform has been set at
rest by the issue of a call for a meet
ing of the executive committee
Friday to arrange details for ratify
ing the ticket. This step was de
cided upon by Mr. Martin and John
C. Sheehan in accordance with the
expressed desire of 32 out of 35 dis
trict leaders of Tammany. Senator
Hill and other leaders of the state
organization have endeavored to in
duce Tammany to defer action until
after the state convention, but the
majority of the district leaders in the
wigwam is opposed to any postpon
ment and the ratification meeting
to endorse the Chicago ticket will be
held next week.
