THE PRINCIPAL OFFICE.
The offices ot assessor, county judge
and commissioners, are the most im
portant in the county. The former
raises the revenue, the latter superin
tend its expenditure. And yet less
attention is paid to the selection of the
assessor and commissioner than to the
sheriff and clerk. This is a mistake tbe
people have no one but- themselves to
blame for. In the first place the assess
or's office is the hardest to fill, the most
disagreeable', and the most thankless of
any. Besides when the assessor has
completed his work he has generally
managed to displease every person in the
county. Every tax payer thinks he has
been rated too high, and if the matter
was put to a vote the assessor would be
in the asylum, sent there by unanimous
vote of the people for hopeless idiocy.
We believe the laws should be amended,
and that either the system of precinct
assessors should be adopted, or that the
assessor should be appointed by the
county court. The latter plan would be
a good one.. A good assessor can no
more be re-elected than a bad one ; but
the connty court could select a man and
finding he made a good assessment could
keep him. Hngh Gourlay made the
best assessment this county has had for
years, but he could not have been re
elected.' Let the law be changed, and
the assessor be appointed by the county
court, and we would have good and
satisfactory work. Then let the people
use a wise discrimination in selecting
tneir commissioners and the grumbling
about unequal taxation, would be re'
duced to a minimum. , ;
THEIR CASE GONE.
The democratic senate Tuesday, made
further , concession to .the protectionists
of their party, and placed a tariff of 40
cents a ton on iron. That this result
should be reached is not at all surprising.
Standing on a free trade platform, they
a. i .i , .
iBiieti hj sea wtti wxieu ey conceded as
proper, the placing of a tariff on any one
of the products of this country, they
conceded their whole case. When ,they
yielded to the demands of the sugar
people, they were forced to give way to
the coal people, and so, in turn, to the
woolen manufacturers, and every other
industry in the order in which they de
manded it. They are like the bog that
crawled through the crooked hollow log
nnder the fence ; they came out on the
same side they started in at, the only
difference- being that the hog soon dis
covered the fact. The senate will do
a wise f.hing if it amends the bill quickly
and then refuses to pass it. .' -
Democracy again showed its bands in
the house Tuesday, the occasion -beioz
an amendment strjkine from the appro
priation bill the amoHDt provided for
paying the civil service . commission.
This was one occasion on which dem
ocracy knew- what it wanted, and what
it didn't. The thing it didn't want, was
tbe civil service commission, and it pro
posed getting rid of it by cutting off its
means of existence. ' What it did wajjt
was the spoils . now kept from it by
means of said commission - There was
no haggling, no long winded debate, no
acrimonious accusations. Democracy
recognized its duty, and with a unanim
ity' of purpose unknown except when
the loaves and fishes are being dis
tributed, "they went for it then and
DOING SOME GOOD.
Politics were never as badly and thor
oughly mixed in Multnomah county as
this year. With four regular tickets in
the field and dozens of independent can
didates, free silver societies, A. P. A.,
and Pennoyer, the political hash can
not be resolved into its component parte.
Election day many of the voters will
have to have assistance to discover
where they are at. ' It is quite certain
that a large number of democrats there
as well as in other parts of the state will
vote for Lord, fearing Pierce's election.
Truly Pierce will have accomplished
some good, if he succeeds in turning
even a few democrats to the Lord.
IT RESTS WITH YOU.
If you want to show where you stand
politically, this is the year to do it.
Just remember that what is worth
doing is worth doing well. . It is ad
mitted by all that the republicans can
elect the legislative ticket "without
a struggle. Why then can they
not also elect the county ticket? They
can. .Wasco county is safely republican
all the time, and if republicans rote
tneir ticket every name on it will be
elected from sheriff to coroner. . See that
your vote goes in straight.'' ,
An effort is being made to have the
postage on letters reduced to 1 cent and
the postage on newspapers increased to
seven or eight times the present rate.
It will not be done for the reason that
the newspapers in the country will rise
up in their combined wrath and relegate
every member of congress who votes for
it to private life. When the revenues of
the department will ' permit, postage
may be reduced on letters, but a law
that will make the postage on a news
paper greater than the - subscription
price of the same, will never be per
. ;. . .

RUSSIA'S BOSS DOCTOR.
. .- ,.t , ,
Little Eccentricities That Mako Him the
I Object of Professional Dislike.
Prof. Zakharin, of Moscow, who at
tended the czar during his recent seri
ous illness, is almost as well known in
Russia for his cccfntricitics-as for his
eminence as a physieiun. -When he is
called to attend to 'a patient, says the
British Medical Journal, special ar
rangements must be madein the house;
all dog-s , must be kept out of the
way, all eloclts rn,ust be stopped, all
doors, must be thrown wide open. The
professor on entering1 begins a process
of gradual undressing, leaving- his furs
in the .hall, his overcoat in the next
roonv. his jjoloshesin the third, etc. He
insists on perfect silence on the part of
the afflicted relatives, except in reply
to his questions, when their speech
must be literally "Yea" and Jfay."
He has a theory which he expresses
in the maxim . "Take, a rest before
you are tired' and accordingly he sits
down every eight or ten steps. His
demeanor toward doctors with whom
he happens to be unacquainted makes
him greatly feared by them, and some
eight years ago a kind of public agita
tion was got tip in opposition to him in
which many hundreds of doctors took
part. Resolutions were passed and ad
dresses were presented, and echoes of
the gathering storm made themselves
heard in the press. These manifesta
tions of feeling- were quickly repressed
in a way characteristic of Russia. The
then ; general-governor of Moscow,
Prince Dolgorukoff, sent for. the editor
of the medical journal in which the
addresses were printed and told him
that if he published a word more about
Zakharin he would have to leave Mos
cow in twenty-four hours' time. His
eccentricities, however, cease at the
bedside of his patient; there he is
courteoms and considerate, most painstaking-
and minnte in his examination,
and very thorough in his treatment.
So successful has lie been in his pro
fession that he is believed to be worth
some half-milliiui sterlinjr. .-
THE GREAT LAKES.
How the Five Inland Kens First Received
The first discoverers of Lake Ontario
gave it -. the name ".Saint Louis;"
another party of travelers called it
"Fronteuac,'' after the great pioneer.
Then came the English, who preferred
to call it "Ontario"' or' "KatarakuL"
George Washington, in his journal as
surveyor, gives it both these names.
"Ontario"' prosed the more popular,
however, and was finally adopted.
Lake Huron was named after the
famous Indian tribe that lived upon its
borders. - Hennepin in 1008 called it
"Karegnondi." In Washington's jour
nal it is mentioned as "Onatoghi," or
"Huron." - - .
Lake Michigan was for many J'ears
called "Lake Illinois," from- the ..tribe
of Indians who lived near it. In 1719
the pioneer Sener gave it the present
name of Michigan, and this was rati
fied by Charlevoix in 1744.
Ghamplain was the first one to . de
scribe Lake Superior, and on his map
it is called "Grand Lac." ' Later on the
Jesuit fathers called it "Tracey," or
"Superiors" ' The English Sener called
it" "Nadonssions," another title for
'fSione." Late in the Jast century it
received its present name, and he
matter was decided ,by the government
on the early mapsnof survey.
Lake Erie was often called "The
Cat." "Felis," or "Du Chat," from' one
of the names of the Erie tribe, who
lived , on its .banks . Sencr, in 1719,
called it also - "Cadaragua," a name
sometimes given to Ontario. Washing
ton's journal names it "Oswego." Its
present name became fixed soon after
by appuaring on the official maps. ,
Massachusetts" Humane ' society
erected the - first lifeboat station ' in
America at Cohasset, Mass.
SO, 000,000 Stars
Can be seen' with a powerful telescope.
The number is vast, but so are the hours
of suffering of every woman who belongs
to tne overworked, ''worn-out, run
down" debilitated class. Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription cares nausea, in
digestion, bloating, rveak back, nervous
prostration, debility and sleeplessness,
in fact, it is the greatest of earthly boons
to women. Refreshing sleep and relief
from mental anxiety can be enjoyed by
those wno take it.
