THE GRANT COUNT! NEWS,
.January ., J SOS. ;
Tho Now York Herald's Vulpa-
raiso correspondent fays liu 1 1 earn j
the Chilian government hit cabled ,
orders to Minister Pedro Moult at j
"Washington to make sincere npolo- I
gy to tlio Unitud Status for tho mi- 1
fortunate and deplorable attack j
iijmjii tho I'ultiinoro'a sailors on
Oct. ltith latt. Tlio iiHlury in i
tHHjualilied in character. Other j
matters which have been in 1 i s t 1 1 o 1
hetwecn Chili and the Tinted '
fjtntoa arc speedily to bo considur
ed by tlio now administration.
Tlio statu lionrd of c(imliitioti
is receiving mjuio sovcre criticism,
and whether cenf.ur is merited or
not, there is no mistake that the
method of assessing projierty in
ilitrerent eon n ties in Oregon in not
faultless. That projierty in one
jiortion should ho nssosscil at one
lialf its value, and in another at
two-thirds or tlircu-fotirtlid, iiu
plies tin inetiality in hearing the
burden of taxation. That some
n n i for in system should he followed
and that projierty owner in Mult
noinali eoiinty should pay ta.en in
proixirtiou to tlioiiu residing in
nl hen r is simply justice to nil
concerned. Thin should ho un
forced by statu law, and then there
can hu no iciison for complaint.
Tlio Kiigono (iiiard, referring to
certain pnpors that aro early in de
nouncing the Australian ballot law
a failure mid humbug, fays: "The
new system has not yet. been tried
in Oregon except in the recent
election in (taker City and there-
lore wo have no reason to complain
In other states where the system
of voting is in voguu it is pro
nounced excellent. Our sister
htalu of Washington commends it
highly. Of course it is an expense,
but that amounts to nothing when
a free and fair vote is obtained.
In small precincts the law will
probably not bo productive of bet
ter results, but in towns of 1000
inhabitants and over vote buying
will be iiiitiiuii.cd. It is notice
able that no statu that has adopted
the system has repealed the law.

of tho congress of that co in try.
Monnwhilo tho formal concluding

has at length adopted tho new

contains only ouu schedule of

makes concessions upon these
duties to nations disfKised to make
rceipioeity treaties with Spain,
Mich treaties to include tho most
favgred nation clause.
Tli ore is still some diireienco
hutweeu a white man and a China
man in Oregon. News comes by
tho way of Suloin that "a few day's
um)" a bomb was thrown into a
gravel pit near L'nnhy, where a
gang of ('hinainen were encamped,
ouu of whom hud his head blown
oir and several others were wound
cd. If thou men had been white,
wo should have heard of tho out
rage the same day, ami something
would have been said about an ef
fort to dipt tiro the perjietratorn.
It m iy lit even have been called
miirdur, and the governor might
have ottered a reward for the up
prehension of such cowardly mis
creants us would throw a homh in
to tho camp of white men, and
decapitate an inolTeiisivo (.'niicasiau.
This is one of tho little diirerence
that make ono bless his maker for
tlio color of his skin. Still, such
a precedent ns this of tin-owing
bombs into Chinese camps ought
not to be established. Some white
tramp might bo stooping there
over night, enjoying the charity of
tlio Chinamen, 'ami it might bo
his valuable head that would be
distributed about, thus depriving
his friends and society of the
pleasure of his company. On the
whole it would bo better to undea
