What Democrats Rejoice Over-
The Oregonian can't see where the
ground for rejoicing' on the part of the
Democracy comes in over the Lite elec
tions, and asfcs, what have they " gained
in place of Louisiana and New Jersey ?"
Why, the gain of one Representative
from Michigan by white votes, is more of
a victory, and the Democracy have bet
ter reason to rejoice than the Radicals
hate fat their success la the tvo States
named by the negro vote. "We rejoice
over successes gained by white men and
the Oregonian rejoices over the success of
negroes. But while we are on the sub
ject, it may be as well to state the
grounds for rejoicing, which are, the gain
of five Senators, namely, in West Vir
ginia, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennes
see, Oregon anS Alabama. We lose the
Senator in Jlinnesofa, whieh makes a
clear gain of five, or a reduction of the
Radical vote in that body of ten. There
are elected up to this time 222 members
Congress., of which ' the Democracy
have, according to the reports received
by us, which are as reliable as those of
the Oregonian. 101, and the Radicals 119,
and two "Independent." There are yet
to be elected 22 members, of which the
Oregonian claims ten, and we are willing
to concede them eight making their
strength in 'the Forty-second Congress
127 against 115 Democrats, and two " In
dependents"' which gives them a ma
jority of 12 over the Democrats and 10 over
the opposition. In the present Congress
there are 150 Radicals against 71 Demo
crats. If the Oregonian fails lo see any
reason for Democrats to rejoice in such
results, the cause must be that the editor
feels too much like mourning. There is
nothing in these figures which is calcu
laied to give any Radical cause to re
joice, while there is much which is ex
pected to make him feel sad and dejected
Theygare not to blame for not feeling glad
and rejoicing at their pending doom.
There is another reason why the Radi
cals are so much dejected. The result
ehows conclusively that the next Presi
dential election will go Democratic. The
Electoral College is composed of 319
votes, of this number the Democracy can
now safely rely on carrying the follow
ing :

And the-Democrais have an equal show

making 109, which leaves . the Rad
icals 220, or give them all the doubt
ful States und they have 1.39. These
figures are not calculated (o inspire the
Radicals with much of a disposition to re
joice, and we do not wonder that they
grow very angry at the Democracy for
entertaining the hope of a fpe'edy deliv
erance from Radical rnisrulc. The De
mocracy have much reason to be jubilant,
and the present indications are most
favorable. The Radicals dare not take
any other man for their candidate but (he
present incumbent, and 3 the elec-
Jions wereh. test of his administration. If
it continues to grow in disfavor for the
next two years as in the past, the Radical
parly will not carry a single State out
side of New England. The ball is rolling
on, and no man cin stop the popular tide.
Ti.ectiox.s. The New York Dcmoaat
of the 2C,th nit., has the following in re
lation to Ihe October elections. It ' will
be seen that this report differs somewhat

j'uuiitLuu several days
after the election, it may be regarded as
correct :
In rennsylvniiia, there was W
hope than almost anywhere else, the Con
gressional delegation has been balanced
and now, instead of ten majority in the
delef ation for the Republicans. the Dem
ocrats have one more majority than the
Republicans, with one independent"
member. For a State whose Congres
sional districts have been manipulated
and gerrymandered by the Republican
in such maimer as to secure to themselves
all possible advantage of ground, this
will do, and furnishes such encourage-
v....,w..v.jr t-iuer states as
to give them greater strength.
Ohio has given us but "two additional
members. In three districts the Demo
crats gained, but there was a loss of one
in the 1st District. The greatest tri
umph in Ohio, however, is in the defeat
of Schenck.
The Iloosier State has outdone herself.
Everything there has gone Democratic!
and besides electing their State ticket,

If the administration of Grant finds

The Litigant Bill.
Some of the Radical organs arc taking
on terribly over the passage of the Liti
gant Rill, and in their denunciation of
the act. go entirely astray from the truth
The bill is what its title indicates, and the
want of such an act has been seriously
felt by parties in counties where there
was but one paper, as the prices charged
in many cases were nothing better than
robbery. This bill provides for regular
rates, and, notwithstanding the assertion
of the statesman, the price ia less by con
siderable than is charged for transient or
legal advertising by any paper in this
State. The usual charge per square of
ten lines in all papers with a certain
widih column, and we have heretofore
charged 2 60 per square of minion type,
for twelve lines, our columns not being
as wide as other papers. This bill re
quires the official paper to use type
a size smaller, nonperiel, and publish the
same at the rates we are now charging
for Kinion type, and the bill further re
quires two copies of the paper to be fur
nished to the County Clerk and one to
the Clerk of the Supreme Court, free of
charge, besides placing aicm under $500
bonds, for tho performance of duty accord
ing to law. The bill undoubtedly bene
fits Democratic papers where there is a
Republican paper published in the same
county, but where there is but one paper,
the benefits are all for the party who lias
'the advertising to do, and not for the
publishers. " Now let us see which party
will have the most official" organs under
this act : Jackscn county. Republican ;
Douglas, Democratic ; Lane, Democratic:
Benton, Republican ; Linn, Democratic;
Polk, Republican ; Marion, Democratic;
Clad manias, Democratic ; Multnomah,
Democratic ; Wasco, Republican ; Union
and Raker, Democratic ; Yamhill, Repub
lican. Thus it will be seen that the Dem
ocrats will have eight official organs and
the Republicans four, just one-third
which is a very fair representation for a
minority party, and - our Radical friends
should be satisfied with this proportion,
and all (ho counties which will have Rad
ical official organs, with the exception of
Denton, are Democratic, and it certainly
is as objectionable for them to give their
patronage to the Radical papers as it can
be for Radicals giving to Democratic
papers. There are but four papers ef
fected by this bill, as in the other four
counties no papers of the Radical 'persua
sion are published. Rut the four thus ef
fected will try and raise a terrible howl
over their loss, and of course they are ex
pected to denounce the bill.
Now let us see what the difference is
between this bill and the practices by the
Radical Judges, who had the ordering ol
advertisements under the old law. Com
mencing with Judge Deady, he has ren
dered a decision or order, by which all
advertisements from his Court must be
pub'ished in the Oregonian. In every
Circuit Court it has beea the practice of
the Judges to order their advertisements
in the Radical organs, and this also holds
good in County Courts, while Democratic
Judges have made it a rule to letlitigan's
publish in what paper pleased them.
While there was no law to designate ofii
cial organs heretofore, the practice has
been as thorough to give it to particular
friends on the Radical side as it can be
under the present law, besides allowing
them to charge what they pleased, which
was never too low. We r g ird the bill
a good one for the litigants, and in a
few cases it of benefit lo individu
al papers. To us, es we have stated be
fore, in this county, it is no benefit, and
simply cuts down the present rates about
ten per cent., without any other consider
ation in return for it. The trouble with
the Radical papers whieh take on so over
this bill is. that it takes away a little
' fatT? they have enjoyed for the past ten
years, and gives it to their opponents. It
is natural that they should feel sore over
Radical Rom;ei;y. Fernando Wood, in
his speech at Tammany Hall last month,
in spenking of the Radical party and the
public debt, said :
They conceal tho true state of affairs,
and never allude to the $100,000,000 of
debt that lies pigeonhold in the Treas
ury Department. From the manner in
w hich they boast of reduction of the debt
it would seem as if such thing were heard
of for the first time in the history of the
country. At the close of the American
Revolution there was a debt cf $75,000,
000 ; in 1812. when the war with England
broke out, it was $122,000,000 ; but in
18:57, at the close of Andrew Jackson's
term as president and 1817 to that tinii
the government was Democratic the
whole debt was liquidated, every dollar
of it. In 181( we had a war with Mexico,
and in ISIS the debt was up to $82 000.
000 ; in 1850. by the much abused Frank
lin Pierce, the public' debt was reduced to
twenty millions of dollars, and when Lin
coln was elected President it was almost
entirely paid off. Contrast thi3 with the
debt4under the Republican Admuustra
tion, and he would say, so help me God
no beleived two-thirds of that debt was
absolute and wholesale Republican rob

The Court House.
The County Commissioners, in their de
fence for removing the Court House, say :
. The building was fitted
up (not at the county expense as repre
sented.) and at the October term the
county leased it - -
Mr. Ralston, in Lis statement, says :
I went into 'the
Clerk's office and in the presence of W. 1.
jsnrns, asked J. M. Frazer, County Clerk,
if there was any record of a renting of an
other house. He told me there was none,
but there was a record instructing him to
notify 'me that they would leave the
building on the Gist of October. 1 then
handed them a proposition to lease the
building'for two hundred dollars p. r year.
After getting my propositiou !or two "hun
dred dollars they leased of other parties
at six hundred dollars ptr year as the
dates will show.
Jlr. Myers, in his published statement
in regard to this little matter, speaks as
follows :
I examined the rec
ords of the September term, and found no
order or any agreement to rent any other
house. On the first day of the October
term, before any business had been trans
acted, I filed with the Clerk a notice in
writing, and called the judges attention to
the fact, that as there was no record of any
contract for renting any other building. I
after consideration, had concluded to take
hco hundred dollars per annum, and was
prepared to go into writing on the same
terms as pefore. for as long a term of years
as they might desire to use the building.
The tax payers can judge from the ex
tracts quoted whether the Commissioners
transacted 'i the county's business as they
would their own." or whether they were
actuated to squander $200 per annum for
the rent because the Court House was in
a building owned by a Democrat.
Inducement to Our Subscribers-
We have made arrangements by which
we are enabled to offer to our subscribers
the American Steele Journal with the Ex
terpkise, at the small sum of 'three dol
lars per annum. This is the best journal
for farmers published in the United
States, and none should do without it. In
order that our subscribers may receive
the benefit of this arrangement, it will be
necessary for them to pay in advance.
All subscribers on our list who have not
paid for their subscription may receive
its benefits by paying for their paper now.
With this combination, our readers will
get a local paper and also one which
ought to-be in the hands of every farmer,
for the usual price of subscription. Let
all our present subscribers pay up their
subscription between this and New Year's
and receive the benefit of this proposition
and commence the year of" the Stock
Journal with the beginning of 1871. This
makes the Entkhtkise the cheapest paper
in Oregon. We hope all our subscribers
will take advantage of this offer.
Impkrtixkxt. A few weeks ago, an
article appeared in this paper over a star,
and an individual, who had no interest in
the matter, took it upon himself to ascer
tain w ho the author was. He inquired of
every one he had the slightest suspicion
of being the author, and receiving a neg
ative answer, finally, after he had nearly
given up his search, some one suggested
to him (as his own little brain never would
have done it) who the probable author was.
He met this gentleman on the street, and
very abruptly asked him whether he was
the author of said article, to which he re
ceived an affirmative jyiswer. Instead of
receiving a gentlemanly reply, he should
have been informed that it was none of
his business, which would not have been
half as impertinent as his question. It
shows the irnpudenco of the fellow to
learn something which was none of his
business, and he should have received
a just rebuke. It is hardly necessary to
state that this busy body was Ihe Repre
sentative from Caneniah precinct, as there
could hardly be found another with an
equal amount of impertinence.
Small-vox. We regret to learn that
Hon. J. R. McLain, of Baker county, has
been taken down with this disease, a!
Umatilla, while f .n his way home from
Salem. He remained in Portland about
two weeks after the adjournment of the
Legislature, having been exposed to the
disease, and not having any symptoms of
it, he started for home with his family, to
to be taken down on the road. Mrs! Mc
Lain, who attended him. has also taken it.
At last accounts Mr. McLain was getting
better. We hope both may soon recover,
and that it may not extend to any other
members of their family.

A Body siml Mintl disease.
Ftich is dyspepsia. The stomach and the
brain are too intimately allied for the one to
sillier without the other, so. that dyspepsia
and despondency are inseparable. It may
be added, too, that irritation of the stomach
is almost invariably accompanied by iriita
tim of the temper.
The invigoratin j- and trinquiiizing opera
tion of Hostter's Eitteis is most powerfully
developed in cases ot indigestion. The first
e fleet of this agreeable tonic is comforting
and encouraging . A mild glow pervades
the system, the ehionic uneasiness in the
region of the stomach is lessened, and the
nervous restlessness which characterizes the
disease is abated. This improvement is not
transient. It is. rot succeeded by the re
turn of the old symptoms 'with superadded is always the case w hen iiinnedic ited
stimulants are giren for the complaint.
Each doe seems to impart a permanent nc-ces-ion
of healthful ir.vigorat.ion. But this
is not all. The aperient and nn'.i-bilioiis
propei ties of the preperation ae M-aretlv
scenndary in importance to its tonic virtues.
If there is an overflow of bile the .secretion
.-.i..,j uiuiism niLii.ii proper limits, and is
toned and regulated. The effect upon the
discharging organs is equally salutary, and
in cases of constipation the cathartic action
is pisi suincient to produce the desired re
suit gradually and without pain. The Put
tors also pn note heidthy evaporation from
the surface which is particularly desirable
at this wason. when sudden spells of raw
unpleasant weather tire apt to eheek the
natural perspiration and produce congestion
of the. liver, coughs, and cohis. Ihe best
ertft-zuard uzh,xt all disease is bodiln vuun
and this is the great Vegetable Ilcstorative
