. Washington, Feb. 24 There is con
sjernation among certain candidates - for
places under tbe new administration.
Mr. Cleveland has given ont bis policy
He has determined that new men shall
e selected almost without exception.
The acnonncement of this policy ccmi-i
through members of the ntw cabinet.
From time to time, it has been rumored
thut Mr. Cleveland bad views which
would stand in the way of bis former
office-holders who are seeking reap
pointment; but this is tne fitst authorita
tive announcement. Mr. Cleveland take
tbe position that his former appointees
f boa Id have gone to work after losing
their offices lour years ago. The fact
that they are turning up now for reap
pointment is evidence to him that tbey
have been waiting four years to get back,

the wisdom of tbis policy, he refers to
himself. He says that alter bia defeat
be thongbt no more of office holding,
turned his atten'ion - to tbe practice of
law and was miking a very good living.
He did not seek a renomioation and only
yielded as a matter of duty to the will
of tbe people. He says it would have
been unseemly for him to have sought
the presidency again aud be tbinks it is
unseemly for those who were assistant
secretaries, commissioners paymasters,
marshals, district - attorneys, ministers,
consuls, and what not, to appear pressing
claims tn reappointment. This substance
of Mr. Cleveland's conversation is being
repeated to tbe friends of candidates
who are trying to get back their old

of congress next fa L and as Colombia

fact that the rights of Colombia in tbe

Vancouver Independent: It was largely
due to this Oregon misfortune the mortgage
tax law that Washington's growth and
financial resources surpassed the growth
and developments of Oregon To this fact
and the nnceasmg efforts of Portland capit
alists to remove this law and further fhe
nest interests of their state they were led
to tbe repeal of the obnoxious mortgage tax
law, and Oregon is once more a free state.
We say tree because it has been relieved
from the most damnab e encumbrance that
ever disgraced the fair name of the state,
and it may now go forth to the financial
world that another unfettered field for prof
itable investment is now open. The ban
bas been removed. -
A queer freak of electricity was witnessed
last night on Front street. The wire con
ducting tbe eleotrio current from the dyna

and then burned off and fell to the side

who at fi st thonght that some of the build

may account for the phenomenon.

Salem Statesman: Some people may think
that on aooount of the vast sums appro

run out of cssh. They may compose their
souls. The general fund of the state treas
ury is already out of cash, but the warrants
of the state of Oregon will bnng their face
in gold at any time. Tnere are plenty of
bankers and other people in Oregon, Calif- '
ornia and elsewhere who will take them np
fast as they are issned. Only a few days
ago a letter was reoeived from a big New
York nrm wanting to boy all tbe warrants
that are issued or likely to be, indorsed.
'not paid for want of funds." Such war
rants draw eight per sent interest, and, as
Oregon hss do state debt, they are gilt
edged and sought for all over the country. . r
No state in tbs Union has a better credit
than Oregon. So don't get excited, friends,
about the money running short. If overy -
warrant called for by tbe legislative appro
priation could be drawn to-morrow, there
would be cash for each one.
