A USTRALIAN BALLOT SYSTEM.
A system of voting by which the voter
is protected from outside influence;
where he can alone prepare his bHot,
and cast it without fear, is a necessity
of the times. The Australian system
accomplishes this and should thertf;ri
be adopted in every state in the Union.
Under its protection the employe can
cast his vote without fear of his em
ployer, and can thus express his politi
cal belief without fear of losing his job.
The honest man is protected n casting
an honest vote. The dishonest one who
is willing to Bell his vote is thrown out of
business, for his purchaser has no means
, of telling how he has voted and natur
ally refuses to put up for goods, when he
has no means of finding out if they are
tienvereu. Lnaer tnis Australian sys
tem, every man can vote once, and vote
as he wants to, and this is all that any
law can provide for. Its adoption will
shut out the ward striker, who cuts such
a large figure in elections ; will prevent
bribing, fraud, intimidation, and will
result in an honest vote honestly
counted. This is all that is required,
and when it is accomplished it matters
not either whom it aids or which party
it hurts. It is fair to all parties and
fchould therefore be objectionable to
Chili is having another revolution, it
is not likely that any one except the
leaders of it know what, it is for. South
American politics seem to recognize but
two parties the one in power, the other
out. The party that gets left at the polls
generally starts a revolution and some
how always manages to get followers.
From which we judge that soreheads are
as abundant south of the equator, pro
portionally, as north of it, and that the
fellow beaten for office feels just as bad
about it down there, as his free born
brother up this way does. Revolutions
are always in order down that way, and
it is an exceedingly cold day when Chili
Dr. Darrin advertises to the effect
that some wretch has been defrauding
the people out through Powell's valley
and other sections by passing himself
off as Dr, Darrin. Powell's valley has
an opportunity to distinguish herself by
capturing this fraudulent imitator of a
fraud. He who can successfully improve
on the methods of the "Darrin Doctors,"
in the line of fraud, who can successfully
see them and go them one better, so
to speak can '-paint the lily, gild refined
gold, and add fresh perfume to the
violet." At the same time he illustrates
the fact that a "rose by any other name
. would smell as sweet."
The rapidity with which the silver
legislation is being pushed indicates
that the friends of the bill, having been
sent to the field are playing hard to again
get hold of the bat. The plan now seems
to be to get rid of the silver question by
conceding everything the silver men re
quire, thus getting time to work the elec
tion bill through before the 4th of March.
It is not probable that the scheme will
-work, as the election bill has been de
throned and it will be impossible to
again awaken interest in it enough to
Eight democrats happened to meet in
the county clerk's office yesterday morn
ing when the question was asked,"what
is the relative strength of Cleveland
And Hill? Five at once . responded that
Cleveland was their choice, one favored
Hill, another "Pattison and Pennoyer,"
and the other, whichever one got the
nomination. This is a small straw but
we believe is a fair one as to the west
ern democracy's choice.
Professor Virchow in a recent lecture
before the Berlin Medical Society stated
that the post mortem examination on
twenty-one patients who had died after
being injected with lymph showed that
the baoiili .were driven to other parts of
v the body and a new disease created. In
brief he declares there is no Virchow in

in the Nebraska Legislature.
Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 8. The Alliance
members took possession of the house at
5 o'clock this morning-" They .placed
their speaker in the chair and put s cor
don of assistant sergeant-at-arms around
him. When I -ieutenant-Governor Mick
eljohn appeared he wasn't allowed to
take his seat, but stood in front, of the
speaker ready to call the joint session to
order. At 9 o'clock the epeaker issued
an order for the arrest of the lieutenant
governor on a charge of misconduct in
office and breach of the- peace. The
lientenant governor defied the officer
and was . not .taken into custody.
Both sides had a force of Sergeants-at-arms-,
within - call and any attempt
of either ' side to proceed with a
canvass ' of the vote would have
precipitated a row. . To -avoid this
a committee freni each party was sent
with a statement of the case to the
fcr.preme court to ascertain which officer
h.-.d tlic constitutional right to preside.
Governor Thayer ordered ost a com
pany of the national guards ; at 11
o'clock they stacked arms in the corrid
ors of the capitol. Crowds arrived on
every train to attend the inauguration
of Governor-elect Boyd, and consider
able impatience was shown over the de
lay in counting the vote.
At 12 :15 p. m. the supreme court issued
a writ of mandamus directing' the
speaker of the house to canvass the re
Sheriff McLeary served the writ on the
speaker only after a pitched battle. He
was guarded by a squad of police and
Captain Carder's clothes were torn off,
but, after smashing hats and heads with
their clubs, they secured entrance and
the writ was served. ' Lieutenant Gov
ernor Micklejohn then declared the ses
sion adjourned, and the Republicans and
Democrats filed out of the house. Elder
then called the Alliance members to
order and directed the roll to be called
When the Democrats and Republicans
attempted to leave the floor, the Alii
ance sergeant-at-arms closed the door and
attempted to keep them in. He received
a punch in the eye and a bloody nose as
the result, and the doors ' were speedily
opened, i ree fights occurred every few
moments. Nat Brown, of Omaha, had
an altercation at the door of the house
with an Alliance man, resulting in the
Alliance man being sent to the hospital
for repairs. Elder called eighteen
senators and fifty-five represenatives of
of the alliance to order in the joint ses
eion, but Attorney-General Leese advised
submission to the order of the court
Nevertheless, Elder was declared presid
ing officer of the joint session, and the
Alliance men started to work.
Mr. Micklejohn went out in the corri
dor at2 o'clock and the doorkeeper re
fused to readmit him. Governor Thaver
then ordered the militia to escort Mickle
john back if necessary. , Micklejohn
finally gained the mastery, entered the
chamber and presided. He appointed a
secretary, and the returns were read,
ana tlie epeaker said they were all right,
not having been tampered with. The
doors were then opened and the crowd
let in. The militia cleared the state
house grounds several times, but the
people crowded by them every time
they could, and a howlintr mob sur
rounded the capitol. When the militia
was called out the crowd hooted and
yelled at them in such a manner that
the soldieis became frightened, and it
was only when a squad of forty police
men arrived that any kind of order pre
vailed. At 1 :30 the Alliance men began
coming out to dinner. They were ' re
cieved with howls of derision, hisses,
catcalls, and other uncomplimentary
things. Governor Boyd was sworn in
as governor at noon by Chief Justice
Maxwell, of the supreme court. This
morning he took the oath of office
before a notary public, as did also all the
republican officers elected.
Governor-elect Boyd called on Gov.
Thayer and the latter informed him he
(Thayer) would not give up the office on
the ground that Boyd was not a citizen
of the United States. Governor Thayer
has barricaded himself in executive of
fice with police and a company of milita
on guard. It is understood he will re
main governor if possible, until all ques
tions affecting his successor are settled.
Boyd's father, it will be remembered,
came to this country from Ireland while"
Boyd was a minor. ' He. took out his
first papers, but never perfected citizen
ship, and his son was never naturalized.
It is claimed, therefore, he- is ineligible
to office. . -

The Grate City of the Inland Empire is situated at
the head of navigation on the Middle Columbia, and
is a' thriving, prosperous city.
It is the supply city for an extensive and rich agri
cultural an -l grazing country, its trade reaching as;
far south as Summer Lake, a distance of over-to
THE LARGEST WOOL MARKET.
V The rich grazing country along .the eastern slope
of the the Cascades furnishes pasture for thousands
of sheep, the wool from which finds market here.
The Dalles is the largest original wool shipping
point in America, about 5,000,000 pounds being
shipped this year. V
THE VINEYARD OF OREGON. 1
The country near The Dalles produces splendid
crops of cereals, and its fruits cannot be excelled. It.
is the vineyard of Oregon, its grapes equalling Cali
fornia's best, and its other, fruits, apples, pears,
prunes, cherries etc., are unsurpassed.
The salmon fisheries are the finest on the Columbia,
yielding this year a revenue of $1,500,000 which can
and will be more than doubled in the near future.
The products of the beautiful Klickital valley find
market here, and the country south and east has this
year filled the warehouses, and all available storage
places to overflowing with their products.
v ITS WEALTH
It is the richest city of its size on the coast, and its
money is scattered over and is being used to develop,
more farming country than is tributary to any other
city in Eastern Oregon.
Its situation is unsurpassed! Its climate delight
ful! Its possibilities incalculable! Its resources un
limited! And on these corner stones she stands
