The election is over ; the celebration
of the opening of the locks a thing of
the past; the shouting for McKinley and
Bryan have' passed away, and the sound
of the stump speaker's voice is no longer
heard. Indeed all things change; all
things pass away, except the Salvation
Army, which has come to stay. The
untimely drum alone, of all its fellows,
is still heard on the streets, and, while
erst w nil e the welkin got up and whooped

no salute, and its candidates no cheers.

The Oregonian today says editorially;
"The citizons of The Dalles cannot well
overestimate the advantages that will
-accrue to their town through the open
ing of the canal and locks at the Cas-
-cades. The event is an important one
in the history ot the country tributary
therelo, and relatively so to the -entire
tiecton of the state east of the Cascade
mountains. What with its share in the
improvement of business that will follow
the election of McKinley and favorable
local conditions, The Dalles should now
begin to realize its long-deferred hope of
prosperity and enter upon a new era of
growth. Portland sends greeting and
joins The Dalles in the hope that its
juet expectations may be fulfilled.

The ladies of The Dallas deserve un
stinted praise for their hearty assistance
and co-operation in making the celebra
tion Thursday such a phenomenal suc
cess. It was due to their quick and al
most universal response to the request
for pies, cakes, etc., that made it pos
sible to successfully feed the vast crowd
that evening. It waa due also to their
self-sacrifieing efforts that the hungry
horde waa waited upon, and that the
barbecue and supper were successfully
carried out. The committee in charge
of the celebration, the members of The
Dallea Commercial Club, and the citi
zens generally are enthusiastic whenever
the work of the ladies on that occasion
is mentioned, and The Chboniclb takes

Old Judge Moses Tebbs of Genoa, Ne
vada, waa a queer old genius of a lawyer.
He was pompous, ponderous and im
pecunious, yet withal aa offen happens
to those with email means, of a natur
ally generons and hospitable disposition.
He hated penuriousness mortally. In
an unguarded moment Tebbs became
indebted to a neighbor, whom we will
call Lawrence Jones, since he still hangs
on to life, said indebtedness amounting
in the grand aggregate to 35 cents.
Jones dunned Tebbs, but Tebbs didn't
pay. He didn't have the specie. The
dam was repeated on divers occasions,
with similar results. Tebbs never kept
small change, that waa for liquid neces
saries tor himself and mends, and be
seldom had money in greater abundance,
but yet always managed to pay. Jones,
anguishing for his 35 -cents with all the
force of his inordinate greed, watched
Tebbs until one day the latter gave a
little dinner party, the occasion being
his birthday, to a few friends- There
in the midst of the festivities Jones ap
peared, demanding ia strident tones his
money. Tebbs invited him into the
hallway, paid and dismissed him. Re
turning to the dining room be resumed
his seat, but silence circled round the
board, interfering with the hilarity of the
occasion. Tebbs looked solemnly at his
guests and then in solemn tones, said :
"My friends, the ancient Persians bad

The following figures of the East Ore
gonian shows how and where the fasion
majority of June was overcome. There
are some startling changes in the votes,
particularly in Clackamas county, where
it was a general landslide :
"The fusion majority in Marion county
last June was 1,068 against the Republi
cans. Not only that has been over
come, but a majority of 500 for McKin
ley has been given in that county. Iu
Lynn county the majority against the
Republicans was 1,580. That has been
reduced to 698 for Bryan. In Clacka
mas county tne iusion majority was
1,101, all of which, has been overcome
and a majority of about 400 given for
McKinley. In Washington county the
fusion majority ia 279. The majority
for McKinley was 500. In Yamhill
county, the borne of the bimetallic
movement in Oregon, in which the
majority against the Republicans was
674, this was overcome and a majority
of fifty for McKinley - waa given. And
so in nearly every county outside of
Multnomah there have been gains for
McKinley over the vote of last June,

the Aloasnrlng Process.
It is a commonly-accepted theory that
a man steps three feet, and many a tract
of land lias been "(stepped off" instead
of measured with a chain, says the
Washington Star. In the west they ob
viate the dlU'enltie-s of surveys by the
.land being divided into sections, but in
Pennsylvania much of the property, es
pecially in the mountains, must still be
described by metes and bounds.
In one of the counties in western
.Pennsylvania are two brothers, one of
whom is tall and lank and the other
short, and fat. Many years ago they
purchased a tract cf mountain land call
ing for a mile square. They divided the
labor of measuring it, one stepping off
pne side, the other the other side. Then
they fenced it in and were perfectly sat
isfied until recently, when suit was
brought to recover a considerable tract
of land. Each brother swore that he
knew the measurement to be right and
told liow it had been done. Then, as the
spectators saw the short legs of the one,
scarcely long enough to reach the floor
when he sat in a chair, and the elon
gated extremities of the other, there
was a general laugh, in which the judge
-and attorney joined. Upon surveying it
was found that one line was a mile and n
half long and the other only a little over
half a mile.
