The legislature of Oregon at its
session next winter will be called
upon to enact much needed legisla
tion. Tle failure of the preceding
legislature to do anything but wran
gle over the election of a senator
and pass appropriation bills, has left
to its successor woik in addition to
' what naturally would belong to it.
The abolishment of useless, money
wasting commissions will be among
the first duties of the session ; but of
equal importance, and more so from
the standpoint of patriotism, is the
necessity of passing a registry law,
which will complete the usefulness of
the Australian ballot system and
raise our elections ' to a plane of
greater purity, making them the ex
pression of the wish of an intelligent
The enactment of the Australian
system was a great advance in the
direction of good government. In
telligence is a necessary clement in
the process of voting, which was far
from being the case under the old
procedure. Men who have dabbled
in politics of the grosser sort have
seen the effects of this law in making
the vote of the ignorant uncertain,
and thus lessening the amount of
mcney illegitimately spent at gen
eral elections. Political ingenuity
has, however, so disciplined by or
ganization the ignorant voting class
that the influence of the politician
has to a greater or less Extent been
made to extend to the voting booth.
Especially is this so when, through
the lack of a l egistration law, voters
can be imported from outside places
and more than that, can be made to
vote several times at the same elec
tion by appearing-in different wards.
A law which would compel all voters
to be registered ten days or. two
weeks before election, would in a
measure put an end to the iniquitous
'practice of trading in votes.
This subject has already received
some agitation through the press of
the stale, and the sentiment is
trongly expressed in favor of such
legislation. - The Chronicle hastens
to join in the demand for a registry
law, and feels safe in saying that the
members of the legislature from
"Wasco county will be found work
ing to such an end.
NOW THEY SELL WOOL.
Here is the testimony which the
East Oregonian proffers as , to the
successful results of the venture

Pendleton is the only point in the
state where any wool has been sold
so far this year. . It seems that the
East Oregonian was right when . it
declared the wool scouring mills to
be most important to Pendleton and
made the fight to secure them in the
face of the strongest kind of opposi
tion. Now those who opposed the
milld are reaping the benefits along
with others who favored them, and
all is well. Earnest, aggressive op
position is never to be deplored in
anything. ' .
An argument in favor of less fre

is estimated that the St. Louis and

numbers $8,000,000. This would
go a long ways towards the interest
on the Cleveland bonds. On the
other hand the spending of so large
an amount by people who presuma
bly are able to pay is of benefit in
giving employment to thousands of
men and in putting into circulation
