COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
DALLAS, SATURDAY, JUNE 18.
Some Man's Fortuue.
Tt knowo in all parts of the Un
ion that Oregon is comparatively a new
State, anj that there are many locali-.
tics where capitalists can -invest their
money with the certainty- of realizing
princely f octanes in the near future.
Since there is a liktiiihood of the Hum
boMt Hroad going into Rogue River
Valley the region of country about
L:nk river is one of great importance.
Link river is a stream containing
half as much wafer as the Willamette
sit S ilem. It connects the upper Klam
ath" Lake with the lower one, and is
about a mile long; in that distance
there is a fall of sixty or seventy feet
in a succession of cascades. The bed
if the stream is solid rock. The dif
ference bctweeu high and low water
mark is not more than thirty inches.
XVe consider it the best water power in
the State. '
The Lake above is about forfy miles
long and in places twenty mites wide,
with water sufficient to float boats as
large as any on the Willamette river.
Williamson river is also navigable for
a .considerable distance. There is more
navigation in the Klamath Lake coun
try than in the Willamette Valley.
On the east side of the Lake fine
grazing lands stretch away for miles.
On. the west lie 'the 'Cascade " Mouu
tains with a heavy growth of timber
down to the very brink of the Lake.
The timber for lumbering purposes
eatmot be excelled, and jt is easy of ac
cess too. Rafts can be made of any
size Jand floated to the mills on Link
river The distance to carry these
rafts is not more than 15 or 20 miles.
If the railroad is built to that neigh
borhood, lumber mills would have Ne
vada and all the intervening country
for a market.
Aside from the lumbering interests,
there is no locality offering greater in
ducements to parties desiring to erect
woolen factories. The wool is produc
ed on the spot, and only the dye stuffs
mast bo imported. Link River, some
day : will be. the location', of a thriving
The offioiat vote of the State has not
yet been announced, and we have not
heard the official count from all the
counties west of the Cascade Moun
tains. Ve give below the majoiities
estimated and official, as we have been
able .to gather from our latest exchan
ges. . The vote is on Congressman :
Countiet. . REP.
Clatsop ......,... fll
Democratic majority.,., 3!
In this repprt some counties are not
given for the reason that we have no
reports from them. We think the re
sult will not vary many votes from
tnese figures Three precincts heard
from in Grant county, give 41 Repub
lican majority. There is doubt about
hof the legislature will stand. If
Grant county has elected Republicans
and the contest iti Wasco shall be in
favor of u?, we will have a majority of
one in the House.
Theodore Clay, son of Henry fjlay
the statesman, died last month in a
Kentucky Insane Asylum, aUthe ad
vanced age of GO years. . He had been
an Inmato of the institution for thirty
years. ' Ho was a young man of great
'promise, and at the age of 30 was one
of the most promising lawyers at- the
Kentucky - bar, but having formed an
attachment for a young lady who dis
, couraged bis attentions and refused his
proposals, he" became insane and so re
mained until the time of his death.
The OregQnian thinks that Slater's
majority in the State will be about 200.
!Lay Delegati u.
The Methodist- Conferences of the
United States have all voted on the
quastion of Lay Delegation, with the
following result: Ayes, 4,947; nays,
1,627, counting the vote of the Hast
Maine Conference-as now reported for
ty-three to fourteen, but that body hav
ing ninety three members, the thirty
six, should auy considerable number of
them record their votes in the negative,
may change the relative, proportions to
the defeat of the measure. As- the
tally now stands there is an excess for
the measure, under the three fourths
rule of the discipline, of but twenty
two. The Conference of Germany and
Switzerland, which is to meet on the
10th of June, to attend which Bishop
Simpson is about to sail for Europe,
has vet to vote. This Conference has
forty-five members. The great and
grave question, therefore, is seriously to
affect ,and 0 radically to change the
government of the strongest church in
America, is left to the decision of fbf
cigners, to a mission Conference. How
its members will vote is unknown, but
it wbelic'ved they will support the
measure. That Bishop Simpson is to
preside over them when the election
shall be had is a favorable indication.
The most intense interest will pervade
the church, and not only the church,
but all progressive people, until the de
cision of the foreign Conference shall
This measure of Lay Delegation or
iginated in Oregon about 12 years ago
and w.as for a longtime denominated by
Eastern church men, the Oregon Lay
Delegate system. The measure is one
that is purely , American 'aud peculiarly
the offspring of a new country where
the people have breached the air. of
simple freedom. If the Lay Delega
tion system shall be adopted, one more
link in the chain of arbitrary rue will
have been broken, and tlrtf people will,
erelong rule in church affairs as they
now do in State.
' The plan of lay representation and
its operations, should it be adopted, a
paper "of the church states in brief as
follows: It goes only to the General
Conference, which sits every fourth
year, in the month of May the next
regular session being in 1872. Each
Annual . Conference is entitled to two
lay delegates. The various districts in
the Anuoal Conference elect delegate,
which meet at the seat of the Annual
Conference next before the meeting of
the General Conference, on the secoud
day of the session, and select by ballot
two representatives, who shall sit in the
General Conference with equal power
and authority as the clergy. The cler
ical and lay votes may be taken seper
ately, if called for by the Conference,
and in case the clergy vote oue way and
the laity the other, the total vote shall
decide the disagreement.
Claries Dickens, the celebrated Eng
lish novolist, is dead. There is perhaps
no writer who has had his productions
sj widely read, during his lifetime, as
Dicken3 He had no equal in the mat
ter of describing his characters, aud
this quality has made his writings ap
pear tedious to many readers. He lev
eled his shafts of wit, sarcasm and crit
icism at snobbiog, whether he found it
in high or low circles, and yet he, him
self, was a snob. America can never
name Dickens as a friend ; his visits to
this country were those of fault find
ing and money getting. But with ali
his faults, Dickens has left a literature
that will be standard in its line.
The Democratic News exulting over
the late election says, Oregon is redeem
ed, thank God, fiom the thraldom to
which she has been subjected by the
Williamses, the Woodses, and Gibbses,
Just so and .we suppose, of course,
the Neivs desires to pass the State qui
etly into the hands of the Laneses, the
Fayses, the Shielses, and the Whitea
kerses, and Jpne3 familicse?! Go it
you rebels, your rule will end in 1872.
The Jacksonville News is particular
ly severe on the Democrats in Jackson
county who refqsed tq yote the Demo
cratic ticket. By the tone of that pa
per, it would sepm that Demoprats arp
owned by the party, and must ratify
what is set up 1 y the conventions, or, in
other words, that Democrats are not
Tue lilcction lu Wasco County.
A correspondent writiug to the Ore
gonian from Dalles City gives the fol
lowing history of the proceedings had
in that county on election day :
Democrats ' pretend that the poll
books from two Republican precincts,
have not yet come in, and Republicans
suspect that Democrats do not intend
to have them come within the ten days
provided by law. If they are not in it
will be because Democrats deem it nec
essary to keep them out in order to
" elect" their candidates, to all of whom
they will give certificates, which they
can do with as much propriety and
more honesty than many other things
they have doue.
According to returns, majorities in
this county stand thus : Wilson 8 :
GroverS; Chadwiek 5 y Fieischner G ;
Patterson G; McArthur 2, Lasswell 3:
Waldron, (Rep.) Representative, over
Fulton. 1 Savage, Dem.) over Row

All of the-men at work on the mints

the county ticket, and some on State

discharged soldiers, and had been ad

Several Republicans were driven
away by the judges, and not allowed to
vote, although they were well known
residents of the county and offered to
take the oath provided by -law. We
arc legally and justly entitled to not
less than ten votes on the State and
40 on the county ticket that were re
jectcd. He can throw out from ten to
twenty that voted their tickets illegally.
Not less than eight (perhups more) of
their men were allowed to vote for' Rep

..They have beaten us only by the
most villainous aud outrageous frauds
And if we submit now we can never
hope to have another election with tf:e
least decree of honesty or fairness.
We shall go after them and crowd the
rascally judges to the bitter e nd. I am
entirely confident we can make it cost
them dearly. . Upm a contest we will
secure every county official, We are
going to the bottom of the matter.,
During the late campaign the Al
bany Democrat denounced Fay's re
pudiation disgorgement, letter, and de
sired that it should be distinctly under
stood that Fay was not a Democrat.
; The election is over, and now Fay's
organ, tbe Democratic News, claims
that Mr. Fay, with his disgorgement
principles, has succeeded by eleven
majority, and comes back at Mr. Dem
ocrat, and charges it with being a sub
sidised 'sheet, and with lending its
ready aid to defeat the Democratic can

Democracy ; go after them Fay, for ii

ment plank is all that is left of modem

gorgement principle succeeds, you are
gone to the devil sure. Who will sue

Gounsky, a tailor in Salem, wa3 ar

Precisely so. Saved, we suppose, by

from Jackson, who was read out of the
party a short time since by the Albany
Democrat. Put on your shield, Mr.
Democrat, and wear it until after. Sep
