The official figures of the census
enumeration of 1895, just promulgated
by the secretary of the state, show the
population of Oregon to be 362,513. This
is but 149 less than the estimated popu
lation of the state published by the Ore
gonian immediately upon receipt of un
official returns from all counties.
The official returns gue a more com
prehensive summary of the voting
strength of the state showing as they
do that the number of voters in the
state has increased a little over 100 per
cent in ten years than has beretotore
been published. The number of voters
in each county under the state censuses
of 1885 and 1895 is given in the appended

It is interesting to compare these
figures with the actual votes cast in the
years of 1884 and 1894. In 1884 the
largest vote recorded was on the presi
dential issue, and resulted :
St. John... 492
This records about 98 per cent of tne
The highest recorded vote in 1894 was
for governor. It stood :
Lord : 41 ,034
As the assessors found 110,802 legal
voters in 1894, it appears that in that
year only about 79 per cent of the voters
expressed themselves at the polls. It is
evident, however, that more would have
voted in 1894, if it had been a presiden
tial year; for while Blaine received 26,
860 in 1884, Hermann, for representa
tive, received only 25,699 ; while Cleve
land 24,604, Myers received only 23,652.
We are justified in expecting, therefore,
a total vote in the November Oregon
election of about 100,000."
A Runaway on the Deschutes.
Harvey Smith, the well-known Bheep
man of the Deschutes, had a thrilling
adventure last week with a runaway
team by which the lives of his wife and
little boy were seriously endangered.
He had driven with them in a light tcP
boggy to the farm gate, and giving th,
lines to his wife, alighted to open th
gate. Before he had returned to the
buggy the horses became frightened and
started to run. He .tried to reach the
buggy and nearly succeeded. His wife
threw him the lines, but he secured con
trol of but one, and this he was forced
to loose. The horses then ran for two
miles over a very rough country," finally
running down a steep and rocky hill
side, where the buggy was capsized at
the bottom by running into a ditch.
The lady and little boy were thrown out
and stunned, but luckily eecaped serious
injury. Mrs. Smith sustained ' slight
bruises about the face, but the.boy was
Neighbors followed the track made by
the buggy and rendered the necessary
assistance. The buggy was ruined and
the horses badly injured.
Ode to the Liberty School House.
O schoolhouse dear, how oft of thee
In after years our hearts will sing:
Thy Joys recalled by memory
No bard in mvstic rhyme can bring.
Thocgh plain thy walls and unadorned
By works of art; unknown to fame,
Yet we love thee, and Liberty
Has crowned thee with her name.
An entertainment at the Liberty
schoolhouse on last Saturday evening,
given by the Young People's Literary
Society, was a success both financially
and socially. A very interesting pro
gram, consisting of recitations, dia
logues and songs, was rendered by the
members of the society, and apparently
appreciated by the audience, judging
from the unusual good order which pre
vailed throughout the exercises.
The weekly meetings of this society
during the winter have afforded amuse
ment, entertainment .and instruction
for our young people during the winter,
and the orderly way in which they have
conducted them deserves praise. 4
