The Times-Mountaineer SATURDAY .JANUARY 7, !893 . NEW COUNTIES. . . Among the matters which will be brought before the legislature which convenes in Salem next w.eek will be the creation of several new counties in different parts of the state, and we 'understand that one or more divisions , , of Wasco will be demanded. Aapbp . nlation and. wealth increases these po litical divisions become not only con veniences to the people residing at a . distance, but almost a necessity. For this reason, when the exigencies re- : quire such action, we believe members of the legislature, as representatives of tho best interests of their constituents, should grant the request of petitioners; but due consideration should be given to the facts in each particular case, ai.d V the vote by which such bilk are passed or defeated should be an' intelligent one. In many instances the taxable property of the people seeking to bo set apart from their neighbors may not be sufficient to support the increased bur dens, and then it is for the general good of the public that these requests not be heeded. Old Wasco has been sliced up in the last few years in different shapes, and we will not say that the new counties formed out of the parent one have not proved for the best interest of alL Distance from the county scat rendered this nearly imperative in the past; but in this era of railroad com munication the same emergency does not exist. It may yet be necessary to carve up our county in two or more. . 'different parts, and if it can be proved to be a convenience 'or a necessity to the tax-payer it should be done. But we have confidence in those who rep- . resent ns at Salem that no hasty ac tion will be taken. Due consideration should be given to the value of prop- - erty in the new division, and, whether there is a sufficient amount, without exorbitant taxation, for the purposes of erecting buildings and paying officials - a living salary. And legislators should not be unmindful' of the condition these new counties : will leave the old one, and consider, if it will not burden the property-owners who remain in an unfair degree. Representatives of the people who congregate at . Salem ; every two years have, duties to do , which should be performed conscien tiously and intelligently, and there is ' no legislation which ., requires more careful thought than the formation of new counties. " ,r . chasm between these two leaders the .Democratic party is causing con siderable anxiety, and it is evident that if Mr. Crisp expects Mr. Cleve land's influence for bia re-election he must forego some of his notions on silver. It is very evident that the last term of Grover Cleveland as presiden of the United States will be auto cratic in matters over which the con stitution gives him control, and the country will anxiously wait and see whether Crisp can so far forget his Brit ish stubbornness as to become an hum' ble suppliant At the throne of this modern Cesar for the position he de sires. Thero are many jarring ele ments in the ranks of Democracy, even if mugwump discontent has been elim inated, and not the least of these Is the strong individuality of him whom the party has elevated to the presi dency.. The project of incorporating the port of Portland, to extend from the region east of the Cascades to the mouth of tho Columbia river, is agi tating tho people at present. This in corporation is to 1)6 made for the pur pose of improving tho navigation of this great commercial highway, and it is claimed by this means that the work at the Cascades and the portage road from this city to. Celilo would be pushed to an earlier completion. It seems that such a corporation has been pushing the work on the lower, river very successfully, and it is claimed that the same would be true of the middle aDd upper Columbia. There may be some arguments in favor of such a scheme and many against it, and viewed in the most favorable light must be considered experimental The producers east of the Cascades appear to desire an appropriation for a port age road more than to be included .m the "port of Portland," and their de sires tor a sufficient sum to ouiia me road are not in any manner imperti. nent or the amount asked exorbitant. Every session of the legislature liberal sums are appropriated for public insti tu lions in Western Oregon, and very little, if anything, for Eastern. The portage road will not nearly equalize benefits between these portions of the state, and as taxes are proportional, appropriations should follow the same equitable rule. DR BRIQGS VINDICATED. Dr. Brings has been vindicated, and neither of the charges against him of teaching doctrines contrary "to the Westminster creed has been sustained. In this age of the world the leaven of liberality is permeating the churches, and the iron-bound dogmas which were considered necessary to salvation a century ago are only advocated occa sionally by the clergy. If religion consists in the advocacy of a life more conformable to the high moral teach ings cf the New Testament, with the constant practice of an open-handed chanty towards all classes of man kind, then the world is becoming more religious; but if it consists of implicit faith in old creeds which narrows thought to tho most contracted chan nels of investigation, then the human race is more heathenism tnan in any epoch in history. To hold the views which are now frequently preached from the pulpit would have consigned ministers of . the gospel a few years ago- to the severest condemnation or their church synods; but ecclesiastical bodies must keep pace with modern advancement, and men, whether-Catholics, Presbyterians or Methodists, can only follow the path in religion, as in science or philosophy, that their en lightened reason marks out for them. It was hardly expected that Presby- terians would so soon occupy the ad vanced position of Dr. Briggs; but they are in the line ot advancement, ana other denominations must follow or adopt the rules of the' inquisition of be middle ages over the minds of their adherents. . CLEVELAND AND TAMMANY. The Democrats are not smiling com placently at the dictation of Mr.Cleye- land in the choice of senator from New York, and the Evening Telegram, the organ in this state, makes the follow- w ing vigorous protest: ''Plainly speak . iag, Murphy is Tammany's candidate, and Mr. Cleveland is fighting him for that reason. - In view of the noble stand Tammany took in behalf of Mr. Cleveland and the assurance of victory that they gave him, it looks to be in gratitude on his part now to make a . fight against Tammany's choice for the senatorahip. It ia bad politics all . . around, and waether Murphy is elect " ed or not Mr.' Cleveland's action in this matter will be hurtful to the Dem ocratic party. It will be treasured up against him by the friends of Tarn- . w - . : many, and it is but natural that they should seek every opportunity to pun- ' ish him for his interference in this : senatorial fight' Mr. Cleveland is a much abler politician than he was four years ago, and now that he has - secured the presidency through Tam- ' many '8 efforts he can paraphrase Mr. Vanderbilt's expression regarding the people. He has captured " the big plumb in the Democratic pie, and is - undoubtedly satisfied. ; If any one can afford to be independent of party dic tation that man is Grover Cleveland, and it is very apparent that he intends to exercise his prerogatives as execu tive of the great republic. This is fun for us, and we desire to see this oppo sition extend all along the line. The coming legislature has a diffi cult task to perform if it attempts to pass 1a ws on the subjects which have been named by the people and the press. It is expected to remedy the defects of the method of assessing val ues; to deal with the convict labor Question: to create several new coun ties; to guard the salmon industry; to legislate on a better system of roads, eta; eta, and all this in forty days of working time. Of course it is not ex. pected that the representatives elected bi annually to occupy the capitol at Salem' are given the position for the purpose of recreation or festivity; but if the matters requiring intelligent leg islation are presumed to receive proper consideration and laws passed which will be made effective, the constitu tional limit' of the session should be extended. It would be no great bur den on tax-payers if the per diem con tinued for a longer period than the time mentioned, for matters of legisla tion are of little good if done hastily and not with care and consideration. Hon.. Henry Cabot Lodge, of Ms- -' sachusetts, is the caucus nominee of , the : Republicans for United States senator, and this will be very accepta ' ble to the party in that state and in . the nation. But the Democracy does ' not approve of him because he is the author of the so-called Force' bill, and . they have already begun to "show their ' teeth." Mr. Lodge has proved him- - self a very able legislator, and in every ' way competent to represent his state 1 in the upper house of congress. The odium attached to the bill he intro duced for fair elections in the United States was manufactured by the dough-faced Democracy of the north to' keep the south solid, and if en forced would not have interfered with the constitutional rights of any citizen. It may have had .its effect in increas ing the dimensions of the tidal wave of public senttiment last November; but when this settles down to its nor mal condition, and men regain their sober senses, the Lodge bill and the McKinley tariff will be the theme of praise instead of blame. The next four years of Democratic ' rule may give the people practical illustrations of the way elections are manipulated in the soath and of the financial dis asters attending the inauguration of free trade. It is, of course, a difficult matter to estimate with any approach to accur acy what amount of the outstanding obligations of the United States in the shape of currency have been accident ally destroyed and thus removed from the class of treasury liabilities, says Uradstreel's. The discussion of the condition of the treasury which '.has gone on recently, however, has direct ed attention to the subject, and accord ingly we find in press dispatches from Washington some attempts at- esti mates of the amount of paper currency destroyed by accident or otherwise eliminated during the last three, de cades. The estimates of the amount of currency thus removed range from $14,000,000 to $20,000,000. Of course All of this currency has not been lost. Some of it, the fractional currency es pecially, has gone to a considerable ex tent into the hands of collectors. What gives point to these estimates is J the suggestion now made that the amount of this money be . taken out of the sum of the liabilities of the gov ernment, a suggestion which may be laid before congress in the near future. NOT HARMONIOUS. Congressman Qeorge Fred. Williams, of Massachusetts, has not helped the cause of the mugwumps with the southern Democracy by his visit to Charleston, S. C. Mr. Williams made speech at the Forefathers' Day ban quet at Charleston last week, says the Chicago Inter Ocean, and he was ap plauded when he devoted' bis attention to the corporations in the north and accused these of controlling votes in the interest of the Republican party But when Mr. William's gently hinted that there were election methods in the south that would not pass muster in the shadow of Bunker Hill he touched a sensitive point and the at mosphere of the banquet hall became as chilly as that which struck the Lau resitna wnen her compasses were frozen, and . the Charleston Newt and Courier, next morning proceeded to read a lecture to mugwumps in gen eral and Mr. Williams in particular Mr .Williams has learned that how ever much the mugwumps may help the south to control the government they must not speak in criticism of the southern ' elections. The solid south does not band over to Mr. Cleve land its 159 electoral votes without re gard to the wishes of the. voters to have the elections criticiced. Like the colonel who ate the chicken stolen by the foraging private, Mr. Cleveland and his friends must accept this sup port without asking impertinent ques tfons. Louis McComas,wbo was nominated judge i t toe supreme court ot toe District o Columbia. Talking, about the probable outcome of the senatorial contests now beginning in the .northwest, Mr. Carter baid: 'In my own state the result is still doubtful, but with chances in favor of the Democrats. In Wyoming the Dem ocrats and Populists together have con trol of the lower branch of the legisla ture, and there are two contested cases which I suppose will be decided against the Republicans, thus securing a major ity on joint ballot, which will probably be used to elect a Democratic senator. Id California, the legislature is against us. Id Kansas, and Nebraska there is a chance we will be able to elect our candi dates, but there is considerable doubt about it." Another Idaho V order. Lkwiston, 'Idaho, Jan. 3 Mr. J A Czizik, a prominent miner from Warrens arrived in the city last evening, brintcing the news of another horrible murder in Idaho county. Two brothers named Perkins killed a man named Dickinson about midway between Orabgeville and Warrens, near the junciion ot the Little Salmon and Rapid rivers. The cause of he tragedy seems to nave been a dispute over a minicg location. One of the Per kins was held under arrest by Tom Pol lack at the letter's home, where Dickin son's body was taken, but the other Ptr kins tied the counary. TELEGRAPHIC. Cold Soap In nrope. Berlin, Jan. 3. The cold it severe. increasing all over the continent. Last night the thermometer marked 10 deg. above zero. A heavy snow is falling in the mountains. Suspension of traffic is threatened on sevrral railways. All the lakes in France, Germany and Austria are Irozen over, and night fetes have been organized in most of the cities. In Vienna thousands were employed all night clearing the snow from the streets. At Trieste the harbor presents an Arctic scene. A whole family were drowned near Gifhorn, while crossing the Alter on the ice. There is some discussion in the pub lic press of employing the convicts in the penitentiary in a jute bag factory, and this is receiving favoiable com ments from many. The state which supports these criminals should receive some compensation from their labor, but it should be in a channel in which they would not come in competition with the wages of bread-winners, and this causes the present agitation of the question. We believe the manufacture of jute bags has been tried in the penv tentiary of our neighboring state, Washington, and the result has not been very encouraging. There is no reason that it would be more success?. ful in Oregon, and it is experimental1, at best, on this coast. There is a pub lic necessity of the early completion of The Dalles portage road by the state, and the northwest is interested in this improvement -The present legislature can pass a liberal appropriation for this project, and there would ' be healthy employment for criminals in grading and doing the heavy work. . Now that congress has re assembled after the holidays, our senators and representative should be urged to im mediate action in favor of the bill ex tending the time for the payments to be made on the forfeited railroad lands. In many instances our settlers will not be able to purchaae these lands next month, and an extension of time would be no hardship on the government and be a great boon to those who desire to secure them, for - the past two or three seasons . crops have been very light, and farmers have found it diffi cult to meet their obligations. There is no possibility of land speculators reaping any advantage from such leg islation, and the petitions presented to congress clearly prove that these are the honest, ' earnest prayers of home- builders. ' Considerable interest centers around the Washington legislature by reason of that , body having to, elect a successor to Hon. John B. Allen, United States raanator. It is generally conceded that Mr. Allen has - ably represented the state in the national legislature, and will very probably succeed himself, Of course there will be other men who will have the senatorial bee buzzing around their heads, but no one is bet ter able to attend to the interests ot that growing state at Washington City than Mr. Allen, and in his election the legislature will have given voice to the sentiment of the sovereign people. Mr. Nathan Pierce will be an elector rom Oregon by a decision of the su preme court, although the judges de cided that the votes cast for hia, where his name appeared oh two tickets, were irregular. This is one way in which a decision may be -rendered that is Mr. Cleveland, as is well known, is ' a pronounced mono-metallist, and has not the least sympathy with the silver . craze, which has lately passed over the country, while Mr.Crisp, the speaker of I really not conclusive on a question of the houaebelieves in free coinage, and I law, and is the same difficulty were to in placing silver equal with gold as a I happen at the next general election representative of value. The speaker, I there would be no precedent to follow. in the appointment of committees and I It appears to one not acquainted with shaping legislation, has equal if not I the technicalities of jurisprudence that greater power than the executive, and I if a vote were irregular it would be il- there most be no clash between him I legal; bat this rule will not hold good and the president.

At mid night, a furious mob ot twenty-five or thirty men, masked and arme J and de termined to take the law into their own bands, called upon Deputy Sheriff Wright who has rooms at the court bouse, and at the point of revolvers demanded bim to deliver to tbem the key to the cell of Albert Roberta, who murdered Jack Sutherland. The key was obtained and Roberts taken from the jail across the road to an old grist mill and hanged by the neck. The coroner found a verdict in accordance with the above fact. The enme for which Roberts suffered was the killing of J. A. Sutherland, at Leland, Idaho, Dacember 15. The row, culminat ing in murder, occured in Jones' black smith shop at Leland, about four miles from Keudnck, over the amount of wages coming to Roberts, who bad form erly been employed by Sutherland. Dur ing the altercation Roberts called Suther land a liar and was jumped upon by him. Roberts bad a gun . in the" inside breast pocket of his coat, which he discharged three times, all three shots taking effect In Sutherland's chest. Sutherland lived about 10 minutes. - Carter oa the (Sltoatlaa. .

Stories ot great dissatisfaction tnroogbout Mexico with the Diaz government, and that battles with tbe revolutionists are being fought on tbe northern frontier, pub lished abroad, are denied here. It is de dared that tbe country never was more pacific or less inclined to revolution An interview with General Reyes, in command of the northern frontier, con tains the following: "These bandits do not exceed 250 in number Tney are scattered along tbe Texas side of ihe boun iary." General Estrade Local, de Alaracon, archbishop of Mexico, being shown tbe statement in tbe American newspapers that the church party was aiding tbe revolutionary movement on the frontier and desiring a revolution agaios Diaz, emphatically denied the troth tt tbe assertion. He said : "If toe clenca s ever retnrn to power it mnst be peacefully. President Diaz although a liberal, is not an enemy to the church, nor is the church bis enemy," Monetary Delig-atea Will Resign.
