Tlic returns from tlie election :ire j
not nil in yet. Iiut there are enough'
to show that the prohibition amend
ment has heen defeated by nt least
sivciij thousand, and the other two
amendments by still greater majori- ,
lies. The result has probably sur- i
prised no one. It js evident that the!
people were not ready for a temper
ance move that had so much the undu e
of an experiment and which many
sincere temperance people were fear
ful could not bo enforced. We al
ready have several laws looking to
the restriction of the sale of intoxica
ting liquor but they had as well not be
on trie statute books so fir as any
good they do. A salut'ary lesson has
been taught, however, which will
result benelicially. The liquor ele
ment will know that there is a vast
and powerful force in opposition to
them, whice will cause n less defiant
and more careful and conservative
action on their part hereafter. The
defeat of the amendment for time of
holding the election is the free ex
pression of the people regarding the
most titling way, and is doubtless
correct. The defeat of the amend
ment to the increase of the salaries of
state olHcers, assumes another form.
There can be no doubt that the
salaries should be increa-ed, and that
the people are unanimously in favor
of it, but the method proposed was
the thing objected to. It is plain that
they leared to trust the Oregon legis
islature with it, which is a snd com
mentary upon the limes, and nui.-l be
humiliating to the gentry who prolix

The Chicago AunrchiMs will be
executed to-day unless the governor
commutes (licit sentence, which he
has not done at the present writing,
and it is not at all probable that lie
will. The grcatcsi excitement pre
vails as serious trouble is feared. On
a recent search of the ccHs six or
eight bombs, tilled with the most
deadly material, were found, which
shows that it was the intention of the
Anarchists to destroy themselves and
everybody near them, in rase thev
found their execution inevitable.
One of them has alreadv atloinnted
suicide. The sheriff and jurors who !
condemned the Anarchists arc being)

Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious by the
OA XDJI) CO XFJCSSIOXS.
The following extract, which we
clip from the linker Oily Democrat,
contains some candid confessions (hat
are quite refieshing and true:
"Wo understand from a reliable parly
who has recently paid a visit to Cor
nucopia, the seat of the Pine creek
mines, that the trade of thai entire
section is being diverted from its ac
customed channel, that leading to
JIiikci city , and is going in consider
able amount In Union town. The
Cornucopiaites claim that the business
men of linker Oily do not meet them
half way in their dealings and show
too much of indepemlunil disposition,
seemingly indifferent to the trade of
that section; and more that they can
purchase groceries at Union for '() per
cent, less money than at Maker City.
This latter statement is from Hie
mouth of Prof. Luce, so wo are told
('an this he possible,
Jlaker City? If this slate of things
exist they should be remedied hi once.
The fact that the trade of that section
is going to Union shows that some
thing is wrong. People are not going
miles out. of their way to purchase
supplies unless ; there is ttouie well
founded reason for it. linker City
has always been the supply point of
that entire country and should con
tinue to be. Will our people then
suffer their best interests to go un
guarded?. Look into this matter,
business men, it is for your welfare wo
tulvise you. '
The only exception we take to the
above Is the intimation that Uuinu'is
'miles out of the way." which,
however true the statement would
have been several years ago, is quite
the reverse now. The linker City
scribe seems to forgot that the years
are moving along, that change's are
beipg brought about, ami that what
