t since last week, although the until

J by the house as certain is constant-

a caucus last night, and, while no
iron-clad agreement was entered in
to, it is believed that a resolution
will idiortly be reported from the
committee on rules assigning a date
for the consideration of tlio free

of the lirst tariff bill which is to be

Hain-maker Dyrenforth has been
a little slow in reorting how he
PKnt the eight or ten thousand dol
lars appropriated by the last con
gress for experiments in trying to
produce rain by artificial methods,
and what he accomplished there
with, so, this week, Senator .Sher
man ollered a resolution, which was
adopted, calling ii()on the secretary
of agriculture for a copy of the re
iKrt made by Dryenforth. It is
believed that the resolution was
prepared bv request of Secretary
ltusk, who lias not received any re
jwrt frum the alleged rain-maker.
Secretary Kink has from the lirst
taken pains to let it le known that
he was in no manner retqwnsiblo for
Dryenforth's exK'riuients, which,
although nominally conducted
under the auspices of the agricultur
tl department, were in reality en
tirely indcondent of that depart
ment, being conducted under a
social act of congress carrying the
necessary appropriation. It is un
derstood that Dyronforth's report
will claim that the experiments
were entirely successful, and will
ask for a laruer appropriation to
tests recently made, under

Senator ticorge, of Mississippi,
knows how to do a manlv act in a
graceful way. He made a state
ment on the floor of thu senate this
week in which ho acknowledged that
he found ujkmi examination that he
hail umde an erroneous statement,
in a spewh made last week, as to
the dispilion of the '.)(),( XXI.IXXJ of
legal tender notes issued under the
act of 1MH). Ho also referred to
the words "conditions arising from
tlio local conditions surrounding
H'liators in this city," which he
said contained an implication un
just to others and to liiintelf, that
was not intended. To make his ex
planation all the stronger he added:
"During my service in the senate I
have never'had occasion to believe
that any seuiltor gave supKrt to
any measure from other motives
than a conscientious conviction of
the public good."

It is sometimes an advantage to
the eople of a state to have a
variety of state ollicials, as to poli
tics. 'At the last statu election an
alliance man was elected state print
er in Kansas, and owing to the
rigiil scrutiny of the secretary of
state, who is a republican and not
friendly to the printer, the amount
of printing done and the pay allow
ed therefor were restricted to the
limit required and allowed by law.
This suits the taxpayers very well,
but the question arises, Why was
not the same economy, or rather the
same honesty, practiced when a re
publican state printer was in ollico?
It is said that the state printing ex
penses have been cut down more
than one-half, which is conclusive
proof that thero was gross extrava
gance before. It would bo a good
thing for the jK-oplo of Oregon if a
"calamity" state printer could bo
elected, as it might bo attended
with similar results. The state has
saved a large sum in consequence
of having representatives of both
lKilitical parties in its chief admin
istrative ollices. and it would bo well
if thoro was a further division of
tho offices among the parties.

Tho state of New York is busily
engaged in taking a new census,
ordered by tho legislature under
authority of tho constitution, for
the pursue of apjkirtioumcut. This
will furnish a test of tho accuracy
of the national census, which it was
claimed was '2(l5,lKX) short in the
iiiotroiMilis alone. It is probable
that the state census will show a
larger jKipulation in Now York City.
It may show an increase in all
parts of the slate, since tho state
census undertaken little besides
enumeration and can therefore do
that thoroughly. Tho last census
failed as much because it was en
