ONE AGAINST MANY.
That "one should put a thousand to
flight" was, in the days of old coneid-
, ered to be a wonderful thing. Modern
times has shown it to be a thing of not
uncommon occurrence. Especially has
it been illustrated in our houses of con-
gress. Senator White of California, in
iis speech before the senate, supporting
a change in the rules providing that
when a bill has been debated in the
senate on different days, aggregating
thirty, that it should tie in order, with
out debate, to fix the time for taking a
vote, illustrated this most clearly. He
cited a case in the last congress, in
which one member got his way by threat
ening to read a manuscript a foot and a
half high containing a thousand pages.
"Under our program," said Senator
"White, "a single voice. neutralizes, nay
vanquishes, eighty-seven." Sir Boyle
Roche would have said : "One senator
outnumbers eighty-seven." When you
multiply these eighty-seven by the con
stituency that sent them there, the
statement with which this article
was commenced is far more than justi
fied. "It was a common experience,"
he continued, "for the leader of the ma
jority to be told that if such and such
concessions were made, the majority
wonld be 'allowed to proceed.' The
rule securing unlimited deliberation did
not even secure intelligent deliberation.
Obstructing speeches emptied the
benches. "We cannot overcome a sin
gle and determined opposing senator
until, his physical powers having weak
ened, we march to roll-call over his
prostrate and panting form. Such-pro
eedure is not dignified.
Every effective assemblage in the civil
ized world is controlled by rales, which
make the transaction of business by the
majority always obtainable in a reasona
ble time. If we are here for work, let
work be done. If it be better for our
country that no legislation should be
bad, then let us meet only to adjourn.
I m afraid of majorities,' Jsays one.
Very true; but I am afraid of minori
ties. If we cannot tiust the majority,
o fortiori, minorities cannot be trusted.
The basis of our government is the rec
ognition of the majority. When the
people representing the majority cannot
prevail within a reasonable time, the
condition is menacing."
THE DALLES SHOULD BE THE
The reque8t"of The Dalles that she be
honored by being chosen as the place of
holding the next state Republican con
vention, has so far met with no dis
favor. Several papers in Eastern Ore
gon have commented upon the subject
with expressions favorable to The Dalles.
"We believe that if the matter be urged
before the central committee by repre
sentatives from this section, aided by
committeemen east of ns, it would re
sult in the selection of this city. Our
transportation facilities are of the very
best, our situation with regard to other
sections of the state is central, and we
will guarantee that nothing will be lack
ing in hospitality. The Walla Walla
. Gazette, while having no particular in
terest in the politics of the state, has
these kind words to eay of The Dalles
and its convention aspirations:
The Dalles wants the next Oregon Re
publican convention. In fairness to the
eastern part of the Webfoot state, it
would seem that The Dalles ehould have
it. As the locks at the Cascades will by
that time be completed, delegates con Id
go from both ways by water. It would
give a large number of citizens of the
state an opportunity to observe the
most important engineering feat on the
DID NOT KISS THE BRIDE.
Sooner Tban Cause a Sccno the Constable
Compromised for a Small Fee.
A marriage took place in the office of
a justice of the peace in Columbus, O.,
a few days agro, and, while a most im
pressive ceremony to the contracting
parties, it had a very humorous side
to the spectators. The couple were evi
dently from the rural districts, says
the Troy Times,, and were both seem
ingly covered with confusion at their
having1 to stand up before the four or
five xresent. After the form had been
read, the blushing: pair standing; hand
in hand, the magistrate announced in
a serious tone that, as it was the cus
tom of the constable to kiss the bride,
she would prepare herself for the os
culation. The constable stepped bold
ly out, and, being- a good-looking' young
fellow, the young woman seemed not
averse to being kissed. All doubts
of the propriety of the act were soon
set at rest, for the husky groom stepped
before her with-an air of determination
upon his face that showed it was life
and death with him. He g-ave his
hands an imaginary washing and said :
"Squire, this yere lady b'longs to me
now, an' what she did afore I took her
ain't my business, but if this constable
is' willin', I'll give him $1.50 to call it
off." The server of writs signified his
assent and the .jealous countryman
i;aid the amount,' which found its way
over the bar of the nearest saloon a
few minutes after the newly-married
A Wise Precaution
The president of a large accident
company tells this remarkable story
and locates the occurrence in Brooklyn:
"Some time ago a large policy holder
in my company was run over by a trol
ley car and his right leg- painfully
crushed. He remained conscious after
the shock for three minutes, during
which time, he pulled out his watch
and called the attention of the crowd
to the fact that it was just 15 minutes
to 12 o'clock. His policy expired at
noon, and his foresight was rewarded
by the immediate payment of his week
ly indemnity without controversy or
A Diplomatic Totor.
From a French journal comes this
little anecdote of a tutor and his royal
pupil: The lesson was in Roman history
and the prince was unprepared. ' "We
come now to the Emperor - Caligula.
Yvhatlo you know about him, prince?"
The question was followed by a silence
hat was becoming awkward, when it
was broken by the diplomatic tutor.
"Your highness is right," he said, "per
fectly right. The less said about this
Mnpuror the better."
