In Favor of Fierce.
Salem, Or, Jan. 2 In tbe supreme
court to day, in tbe case of H B Miller,
appellant, vs. O. W. McBride, respond
ent.'on appeal from Marion county, the
opinion t f the lower court was sustained.
This is a proceeding by mandamus to
compel the respondent, as secretary of
state, in making the official canvass of
the votes cast for presidential electors at
the late election as returned to him by
tbe various county clerks, to abstain from
counting certain votes alleged to have
been illegally Cast for Nathan Pierce.
one of the candidate! for elector nomi
ated by tbe the People's party, in con
sequence or his subsequent nomination
by the Democratic party, and tbe priol-
ng of his name on the otrcial ballot
in more than one place that is, in both
the People's and Democratic group of
electors. The majority of tbe court is of
tbe opinion that the printing of Pierce's
name on the ballot in more than one
place was con'rary to tbe provisions of
the law, although Judge Bean was ot
different impression. However this may
be, the court all agree that tbe mistake.
if it was a mistake in printing Pietce's
name on tbe official ballot in both the
People's and Deinocratie group of
electors did not deprive the voter who cast
such ballot-of bis elective franchise or
the candidate for whom it was cast the
benefit of such vote. The decision says
the law is mandatory in tbe sense that it
requires tbe county clerks, in tbe prep
aration of tbe official ballot, to strictly
comply with its provisions, but not in
tbe sense that the voters right to exer
cise tbe elective franchise will be lost be
cause of tome technical mistake of tbe
county clerk in printing' the names of
the candidates upon the ballot. ,
The Homestead fotsoatnz Case.
Philadelphia, Jan. 2. Members of
tbe executive board of tbe Knights of
Labor are investigating tbe report
which connects leading members of tbe
order with tbe alleged attempt to poison
non union men at Homestead. - They say
that it tbe charges are trne the men and
tr.eir act9 will be repudiated by all true
members of the order. It is not a crimt
nal organization and does not knowiogly
harbor criminals or allow tbem to remain
among its membership. They do not.
however, propose to prejodge any one.
Tbey say that there is great eagerness
very often to implicate members of an or
ganized order, and especially tbe Enigbts
of Labor, in real or imaginary plots ot all
kinds,and are painfully aware that in some
quarters justice, is not ;to be looked for
when such members or officers are under
criticism. ; Hence, the aCLnsations against
tbe men at Pittsburg should be received
with caution till something hag been
Cholera la Spreading;.
London, Jan. 2 Cholera' has managed
to keep itself alive in Hamburg almGst
without intermission, and it is continu
ally spreading in isolated, hamlets along
tbe North sea coast in tbe Netherlands.
In French Flanders one tiny village bas
bad . 17 deaths in two days during tbe
pist week. Belore tbe autumn frosts tat
in tbe pest bad worked its way into two
thirds of tbe river' systems of Europe,
and was just beginning serious ravages
in Hungary, Poland . and the Ukraine.
It is a legitimate assumption that warm
weather will see it burst forth simultane
ously over a vast area. England seems
quite alone among the nations id not be
ing afraid of this visitation. No one here
is talking about quarantine, or dwelling
oo the chance ot infection. There will
be an overhauling of sewers, drains and
dock--quarter slums as soon as tbe frost
goes, but nothing more.

The following case ot destitution is re

Glacier: "White Salmon fnrniahes a case of
sickness and destitution that appeals strong
ly to the public's sympathy. Knot Knnt-
aon some two month ago was taken sick
with what proved to be typhoid fever.
Since that every member of tbe family, ex
cept the mother, twelve in all, have taken
the disease, two of the girls dying. At
present six of the family are in bed and
those convalescent are physically unable to
ears for the tick. The good people of Whit
Salmoo are willing to do what they can for
them, bat tear of taking the disease into
their own families prevents their giving that
care that they should have. Tbe family
have but-one room in their house, which is
distait several miles from any, neighbor. A
collection was taken op here Christina ev
for tbe benefit of this faroi y, amounting to
about $6, and Wednesday Cash Luokey col
lected 12160 more,' which he took over
Thursday, to be used in caring for them.'
