Salem. Monday, Oct. 01.
The Legislature have done tbeir duty
in ousting the Radical members in both
branches from Yamhill. The contest was
ended in the Senate last Thursday
evening, and in the House on Friray.
The Radicals made a desperate Sght. and
we may say, a rather shameful one. They
took every adrantage to delay final ac
tion, and lost friends in every move they
made. The Committee on Electious took
as a basis for their action, 10 throw out
every rote that they regarded as an "im
port," and thus they ousted the sitting
members. The Radicals and Democrats
appear to have beea engaged in this busi
ness in Yamhill, but the former had de
cidedly the advantage. The majority re
port will be found in another part of this
paper, and the findings of the committee
vv-erd perfectly justifiable with the evi
dence before them. It shows that 'im
ports?' cannot defeat the will of the legal
and permanent tax payers of tlje respect
ive counties. Oui Radical friend.? think
that this ousting process will gain them
strength for the next election. "Te hope
they may lay this flattering Lop3 close to
their bosoms. It will show the people
that the purity of the ballot box is re
garded above party interests or desires,
and the part which will most closely
purge rascality will be endorsed by the
people. No man can endorse the actions
of the Radicals in Denton, Polk, Yamhill.
Clackamas and Multnomah counties. It
was a farce on the purity of the elective
franchise, and the Radicals can now see
that (Bere is a tribunal which will not
sanction such corruption. We believe the
action of the Legislature will receive the
hearty endorsement of every man who
has the slightest regard for the will of the
Jk resolution was introduced in the
House last Saturday by Mr. Amis (which
is publisehd elsewhere) in relation to the
sunty bonds whiffh were issued during
Giiv. Gibbs' administration. Our State
constitution provides that no one session
of the Legislature shall incur a debt of
Oover $50,000, and the session of 180-1.
Mook it upon itself to incur a debt by is
. suing State warrants to the amount of
over $300,000, and the people have been
taxed regularly to pay this debt. . Now
therS rem a? us $100,000 yet to be unpaid,
and to get an expression from the people
whether they would pay the balance of
this illegal and corrupt debt, the resolu
tion was introduced. On Monday the
resolution came up for consideration, and
it was strangled without ceremony. The
people of Oregon had long since regarded
;this swindle with displeasure, and would
.undoubtedly have hailed with joy an op
portunity to express themselves in posi
tive terms against it. It is about the last
remaining relic of Gibbs' administration,
and as the Legislature have refused to al
low the people two years hence to bring
it out of sight, we hope they may sink it
before the close of the present session.
IVa believe the resolution is a good one,
tind had it passed, the people would hare
sustained their representatives.
It is a remarkable fact that whenever
an effort is made to relievo the peopie
from any burden where the Radicals are
interested equally with Democrats, the
Republican members almost to a man
vote -against such relief. A bill has been
introduced, and passed the House, to
amend that section of the code which al
lows prosecuting attorneys to draw the
stftn of twenty dollars from the county
treasury for each divorce suit, and for
vhlch they hardly erer give any service'
Yhen thia bill vasn its passage, nearly
every Republican in the Fourth district
voted against the bill. We believe that
Mr. Hare from Washington county is the
only Radical who voted for the bill ; he
js the only one who spoke in favor of it.
We notice that Mr. Stai kweather, from
our county, recorded his vote against the
bill, as he has against all that have been
up to reduce fees. The Democrats have
four out of the five district attorneys in
the State, yet the Radicals love Bro. Gibbs
so much that they did not wish this bill to
pass. We find Mr. S. also voted against
the bill c1 abolish the office of Adju
tant General, which has in the past
been worthless to the people of this State,
and has costheci not lesi than $8,003 for
that many years.
We mentioned in our last that the
Marion county delegation are all noted
among the absentees. We probably

Duubar. who by the way, is rather a fair
Radical, is ahcays found in his c-eat. Lit
tle Geo. Jlolman has not been seen in his
seat this week, up to present writing. It
is rather severe on the State that the peo
ple are deprived of this gigantic intellect.
A bill has passed to authorize the Tual
itattQ Navigation Company to consiruct
locks and a canal so as to briog the Tual
itan rive into Sucker Lake. Those ac
quainted with the wants of that part of
our State say that this will open a great

A bill to amend tha Oregon City Char
ter I a pa. s d the Senate. It abolishes
the office of Street Cotninissioner; This
saves the city the expense of paying for
i nproving the streets, as it throws it into a
road district, and the road supervisor frill
be charged with keeping the street in or
der. The bill, since writing the above,
has passed the House, and will be a law
as soon as the Governor signs it.
The State Fair is in full operation, and
there are more people ia attendance than
we haver seen here before. The exhibi
tion of stock and other products is much
better than heretofore, and everything
indicates that the Fair of 1870 will be a
grand success. We shall give a full ac
The Legislature adjourned thl3 rrtorriing
to attend the Fair, but are holding an
ev ening session to make good their time.
It will be seeri from the bills passed,
that both house have been hard at work.
The General Appropriation bill for the
next two years and also for the past two.
has passed both bouses, and ia now a law.
A very interesting debate took place in
the House on, Wednesday evening, on the
bill to prevent and punish frauds. (The
bill is published" elsewhere.) The Radi
cals have a holy horror for thff provisions
of this bill, and did their best to defeat its
passage. It will avail them nothing, as
the bill was ordered engrossed and be
read third time, to-morrow, and will un
doubtedly pass the lower house. We
hope it may pass the Senate.
We ak pardon of our readers for any
shortcomings this week. The Fair has
taken some of our time, and then the
House has been ia session in the evenings,
which has consumed our time. We shall
make up nex tweek for the lack of original
matter in this issue.

The testimony of M. S. Hart goes to
show that the above named persons were

months previous to said election, in the
counties of Multnomah. Marion, Washing
ton. Polk and Linn, where they were,
when hired, residing, and taken to' Yam
hill under promise of Employment ustil
after the election. It also appeal's from
the testimony of M. S. Hart and John
Bowman that they (the men) understood
that they were to vote for Repuplicarrs at
said election, as Republican mouey paid
for the work, and after the election tbey
were to have work on what is known as
the East Side Railroad. The testimony of
Hart further shows that most of said per
sons left Yamhill county within a short
time' after election and went to work on
the railroad. The foregoing testimony is
confirmed by the depositions of Ed. Woods

Trio of American Humorists.
From Frank Leslie's Illustrated.
" M.VUK TWAIX."
Samuel L. Clemen?, more famil
iarly known in the literary world
as " Mark Twain,'' occupies one of
me nignesL positions among iiul-i-ican
humorists, and no man is more
deserving of success than he.
His brief career for he is still a
young man has been a most singu
larly varied one, and belongs to
that class which cannot be de
scribed without the assistance of
narrow escapes, and incidents that
live only in 'an atmosphere of wit.
Ho appears to have been closely
allied to the Arabs, for many places
have known him as resident, yet
few have been able to retain him
long. He was born in Florida
Monroe county, Mo., November
1835. He lias" an invincible an
tipathy to autobiog.aphies, when
he figures in them.
The serious part of his history,
he acknowledges, consists in the
one solitary and unpoctical fact
that he has earned his own living,
without tho least assistance from
anybody, ever since he was four
teen years old and has had a kind
of a lively skirmish to do it, too.
The worfd has treated him well,
and he sees no reason why he
should inflict upon" it a personal
In his writings and lectures he
depends on nothing coarse, and
makes no attack on the syntax of
his mother tongue - to produce
laughter. His wit is inherent, and
it bubbles out as strongly in pri
vate life as when accommodating
itself to tho guidance of the pen.
His success has been rapid and
truly deserved. In his present po
sition as an editor of the Buffalo
(N. Y.) Express, lie continues to
exercise those qualities that have
rendered him an agreeable and ac
complished gentleman, a warm and
la; ting friend, an attractive jour
nalist, and a pleasing humorist.
The philosophical, scientific and I
moral suggestions that have been !
running through the newspapers of
this and other countries under the
above name have an identity and
freshness that make one long for
the acquaintance of the author. Mr.
Henry G. Shaw has for many years
past been a hard working man.
Ilis -vritincrs have the unusual char
acteristic, that, if given to the
world in correct orthography,' they
would lose none of their originality
nor sparkle. It is the idea that
causes explosions of laughter, and
a good humorist will never sacri
fice a striking point for an uncom
mon arrangement of letters.
Mr. Shaw informs us that " if
any man wants to find out just
how much there really is ofh'.in,
let him sit down deliberately and
undertake to add himself up. He
will find that he amounts to a
dread .rl small sum."

Sometimes, without any assignable cause,
the physical strength andaniinai spirits give
way, and a strange torpor tails alike on the
lody and intellect. There is little or no
pain perhaps, but the natural vigor and
elasticity of the neivous and muscular sys
tem seems to have dep i ted and an inditfer
ence to the pie. nre . of life, and even of its
grave responsibilities, takes .he place of
t'aat earnest interest iu bo, i wfclch charac
terizes every well balanced mind when iu a
' ealthy cond.tion.
This stte of partial co'ap.se is often the
premoni ry symptoms of some serious rral
ady. It indicates unmistakably that the vi
ta' powers a e languishing and need a stini
.t. In such cases the edict of aftAV do
ses of Hostettei's Stomach Bitters is won
derfully beiu 'cia'. The great toj'c vrak -rp
the sysiem from its drowse. Tlierece
:ons and the circulation
las. The relaxed nerves rcover tbeir
icity under the oper ations of the spe
. jo, lik.e the slackened strengih of a music
cu instrument in the proe of tuning.
Lethargy and debitity are it u'aced by ener-
aud vior, the spirits rise, and lite that
most seemed a tmi uen while the reason of
'.epression lasted, becomes once more enjoy
:.ie. That such a radical change should be
duced by a remedy entirely Ov.void of tlie
powerful a'saloids aau minerals 90 extens"
ively used iu modern practice, may seem in- j
c. edible to. thase who piu their faith on the
medicinal etlkacy of active poisons, but if j
the.e skeptics will take the trouble to en
quire of tlioe who have tested the correct
ive and alterative virtues ot of the Bitters
under the circumstances described, they rind
the statement to be true.
