A FLAT FAIL VRE.
Mr. Corbett'e dinner is liable to be
come historical as a failure.: ' That Mr.
Corbett had a right to give a dinner to
the members of the legislature, nobody
will deny; and that Mr. Corbett's mo
tives were not evil, most will admit,
Mr. Corbett is an honorable gentleman,
-with more brains than judgment, and
more hospitality than taste. That his
dinner was attended by only one-third
of the members of the legislature was
due, not to any dislike of Mr. Corbett,
not to any suspicion of his having any
sinister designs upon the members of
that body, but because, under the cir
cumstances, his invited guests could
not put their feet under his mahogany,
or their vests outside of his wine, with
out' making themselves liable to criti
ciem, however undeserved. The public
could see no reason , for Mr. Corbett's
dinner party, hence ascribed his hospi
tality to some motive, which, because
hidden, was believed to be evil.
The people of these days contrive to
do some thinking for themselves. They
have on many occasion noted the rela
tionship between wine sappers and leg
islation, and have learned that bills
passed by the influence of champagne
were generally in the interests of the par
ties who paid for the wine, instead of
the parties who elected the legislators,
Those who remained away from Mr,
Corbett's wine avoided the appearance
of evil, at least, and not only that, bat
turning their attention to legislative
work, performed the duties for which
they were elected. Whatever Mr. Cor
bett's object was, the presence of but
twenty-six out of ninety invited guests
stamps it as a flat failure ; or, to use the
society term eo numerous since Ward
McAllister gave it the sanction of bis
approval, a defunct "function."
OFFER TO SETTLE.
The defeat of the Reilly funding bill,
which proposed to give the Union and
Central Pacific Railroad Companies for
ever and some time after in which to
settle with the government, or rather to
give them 50 years in which they might
make up their minds whether they
would pay or not, has set the directors
of those roads thinking to some purpose,
They owe the government in round num
bers $64,000,000 principal and $75,000,000
interest. The defeat of the Reilly bill
has caused a sudden discovery among
the bosses, who a few days ago were de
claring their bankruptcy their inability
to pay more than one per cent a year of
the principal that tbey can dig up and
pay over to the government $64,000,000
cash, if it will release.. its claim on the
r i , i
There is reason in this sudden offer to
pay. Should the government conclude
to foreclose and then operate the road
it would hurt all the others, and espec
ially injure the Southern Pacific, which
was built with the stealings from the
Central Pacific, and which belongs to
Crocker, Huntington et al. If the gov
ernment has the honesty and backbone'
to stand up to these people and . say
-tinner pay your entire debt, or we
will take charge of the road and operate
it," the Pacific railroad question will be
settled. The companies will pay before
. they will allow the government to own
and operate a road in the interests of the
Besides this, under the laws of Call
fornia, where the Central Pacific was in
corpora ted, the government can collect
its debt from Huntington, Crocker, Stan
ford and that gang in 1911, at which
time the corporation terminates.
The Southern Pacific Railroad Com
pany, during the strike at Sacramento,
was protected by the United States
troops. As the troops were scattered
along the line, there were some who in
the demands upon their time, had no
time to cook their rations. They were
' invited by Superintendent Willis to eat
at the company's restaurants. When
the strike was settled, the company pre.
eented a bill to the government amount
ing to some $3,000 for the meals eaten
as aforesaid. . The government having
supplied the men rations, refused to pay
the bill, and now the railroad company
is taking steps to collect it from the sol
diers, and Lieut. Gorin has been de
tailed to investigate the matter, and if
it is found that ' the men ate the meals,
he is ordered to keep it out of their com
The boys in blue will no doubt take a
deep interest in protecting more railroad
property should another strike occur.
Recently a farmer in Indiana con
cluded to sell his farm and move to
town. The buyer was found and the
price agreed upon, and the deed prop
erly drawn up, when an unexpected ob
stacle presented itself. The wife posi
tively refused to sign the deed. When
the lawyer who bad the matter in charge
began to argue the case with her, she
said she' thought part of the money for
the farm should be given to her for her
own. When asked how much she
thought she ought to have, she said, "I
think I ought to have at least $2." The
money was given her and she signed the
deed with the remark that that was the
first money she ever had in her life to
do as she pleased with. The balance,
$35,998, was paid to the hasbadd and
pocketed by him. This would be funny
if it were not so pathetic, for the inci
dent is supported by evidence that
shows it to be an actual occurrence,
We do not feel like adding a moral of
any kind, for the story carries its own
moral' Baker City Democrat.
The railroad commissioners will prob
ably hang on to their job, and if so a lot
of legislators ought to be hung along side
of them, making one job of the whole
business. The spectacle is 'one to cause
nothing but contempt for politics and
politicians of all parties and degrees
Every man in the legislature except the
hold-oyer senators, was elected on a
platform pledging him to abolish the
railroad commission. Will it be done?
The Ranier Review, which made its
first appearance last Friday, is the last
candidate for pnbiic favor In Oregon
It is published, as its name indicates, at
Ranier, a few miles below St. Helens,
and is filled with interesting matter
concerning that section.
Free silver and Thomas Paine are the
two subjects just now causing the Ore-
gonian a great deal of worry. It seems
plausible at least that the free silver
caused the Paine.
Ten days loss of time on account of
sickness and a doctor bill to pay, is any
thing but pleasant for a man of a family
to contemplate, whether he is a laborer,
mechanic, merchant or publisher. Jas.
O. Jones, publisher of the Leader
Mexia, Texas, was sick in bed for ten
days with the grip during its prevalence
a year or two ago. Later in the season
be had a second attack. He says: "in
the latter case I used Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy with considerable sue
cess, I think, only being in bed a little
over two days. The second attack. I am
satisfied would have been equally as bad
as the first butfortheuse of this rem
edy." It should be borne in mind that
tne grip is mucn tne same as a very
severe cold and requires precise! the
same treatment. When you wish to
cure a cold quickly and effectually give
this remedy a trial. 50 cent bottles for

of all cases of consumption can, if taken in
the earlier stages of the disease, De cured.
This may seem like a bold assertion to
those familiar onlv with the means gener
ally in use for its treatment ; as, nasty cod

of malt, whiskey, different preparations of

Although by many believed to be incura

living witnesses to the fact that, in all its
earlier stages, consumption is a curable

has progressed so far as to induce repeated

and extreme emaciation and weakness.
Do you doubt that hundreds of ssch cases
reported to us as cured by Uolden Med
ical Discovery " were genuine cases of that
dread and fatal disease ? You need not take
our word for it. They have, in nearly every
instance, been so pronounced Dy the Dest
and most experienced home physicians,
who have no interest whatever in mis
representing them, and who were often
strongly prejudiced and advised against
a trial of ' Golden Medical Discovery,"
but who have been forced to confess that
it surpasses, in curative oower over this
fatal malady, all other medicines with
which thev are acquainted. . Nastv cod.
liver oil and its filthy "emulsions" and
mixtures, had been tried in nearly all these
cases and had either utterly failed to bene
fit, or had only seemed to benefit a little for
a short time. Extract of malt, whiskey,
and various preparations of the hypophos
vhites had also been faithfully tried in vain.
