THE OREGON SCOUT.
AMOS K. JONKS - - EDITOR,
City and County Official Paper.
Friday, November!, 188S
Tun Farmington, W. T., llegislcr Is
our latest exchange.
Tun English and Canadian press al
most univcrpnlly rejoice over the elect
ion of Harrison.
' Vol. 1, No. 2 of Iho Weekly Wel
come, n paper published at Spokane
Palls, is on our table.
Thkki: will be nine democrats in tho
upper house and nine- in the lower
house of the next legislature.
In Philadelphia where protection
has heretofore ruled supreme, tho
democrats cut tho republican majority
down more than 12,000.
Tun Mormons are starting churches
in the Northwest Territories and in
Urilish Columbia, agreeing to forswear
polygamy on. Canadian soil.
Tun comments of the JaiikIoii press
on the presidential result clearly shows
the truth of tho assertion that Harri
son not Cleveland, was the favorite of
Tin: New York Sun says that Presi
dent Cleveiand will visit San Francisco
and other points on tho Pacific slope
on a long vacation shortly after he
goes out of oilico, on March lth, 1889.
AwtAM Ci.auk, the great lens-maker,
says that for the trilling sum of 1,
000,000 ho can make a telescopic lens,
fivo fret in diameter, that will bring
tho moon within a few thousand foot
of tho earth!
Tun city election is near at hand
and as yet no issue has been raised
upon which to run tho various candi
dates, and make things lively. How
would cow ordinanco or no cow ordi
nance do for an issue?
TiiKiu: is no uso talking about the
gratitude of workingriien on the Pacif
ic const, after tho Way every state wont
for Harrison and hiH pro-Uhine.su leo
ord and against Ulevcland, who boldly
endorsed tho restriction bill. Port
It is expected tliat the popular vote
in tho United States this year will not
bo less than twelve and a half millions.
On tho basis of one vote to every four
persons this would give tho United
States a population of sixty-two mil
lions, a growth most remarkable.
ILakisihok appears to have carried
Indiana by over 2000 plurality, but ho
was beaten in his own county, run
ning soveral thousand votes behind
.Rlaiuo in 1881. This verifies our
Mtatumunt that tho labor organizations
at his home, where ho was best known,
wotdd not support him.
Jr the latest returns are to bo relied
on, Texas, tho greatest wool growing
Mate in tho Union, gave Cleveland a
majority of over 200,000, and returns
Mijls to tho Ilo'uao of Representatives
Jn 1SS1, Cleveland's majority in Toxaa
was 131,078. What is tho cause of
his iucreiifod vote thoro? Evidently
the sheep were standing in with him.
It is claimed from tho returns that
the free trado scaro inlluoneed thous
ands of votes all over tho United
States. Yet Connecticut and Now
Jersey, both largo manufacturing
states, wont domooratic. We believe
that Clovoland was defeafed in New
York by Mayor Hewitt and county
democracy of New York city, who
traded Cleveland for Hewitt. Wo do
not believe that tho question of tarilV
reduction contributed in any way to
Cleveland's defeat. Astoria 1'ioncor.
Tun Courier Journal pays tho fol
lowing tribute to lirovor Cleveland:
"An honostor, braver man novor occu
pied the Whito Mouse; nor yet one
who rendered tho country greator,
purer service. , Tho Knighthood of
party leadership was denied nini. The
'gifts of magnetism and grace wore not
given him by tho fairy that bent over
his eradlo in tho hour of hi birth.
But loyalty, courage, integiity, dovo
i (ion to duty, a nigged, saU-rellnnt
spirit, and a stern, unflagging faith in
truth woro his; and he, surely, can
afford to. stop' down and out with tho
seuso that, howovor failingly, ho was
true to his convictions, and imulo no
concessions to parly olitima, or sdlUU
intortaia ot any kiml."
A J.Iht lias been prepared at Iho
postofiice department which shows
that the commissions of eighty presi
dential postmasters appointed 1y P;c
ident Arthur will expire between now
and the end of Cleveland's term. The
list includes every state in the Union.
Thoyn from Oregon mid Washington
(Territory are Salem and Vancouver.
Tun common verdict of Hie press of
Oregon not that thoy are the best
judges perhaps is tlitip no change of
text books is necessary. The statute
law governing tho adoption and cljango
of text books in this state ought to be
amended or totally repealed. The
people oppose even a chance to change
text books every four years. Prine
It seems from the latest dispatches
that Anarchy is still alive in Chicago,
and another demonstration is feared.
Inspector Hon field 'says: "There are
no less than 5000 able-bodied anarch
ists in Chicago to-day, ready and or
ganized, waiting for tho appointed
time." The time thoy choose Fhoitld
also be selected by the law abiding eit
izsns to mote out death to every one
Tun New Orleans Timet-Demoeral
tabulates tho popular vole in ull the
states, as reported in round numbers
by telegraph, and makes out a plurali
ty Si 57,0-10 for Cleveland over Harri
son. It says: ''Tho majority may
slightlv vary from this when the full
returns come in, but Mr. Cleveland
has decidedly the best chances of so
curing a popular majority, and this we
believe ho will do."
Eastwin Oregon republicans aro
claiming that DolpliV successor must
come from that section. Oh, ye near
sighted dupes, have you not so much
as learned that the "bosses" in Port
land have long since settled that ques
tion? Dolph will bo his own successor.
You Eastern Oregon fellows had just
as well be dogs an bay at the moon
as to claim a United States senator.
Tun Salem Statesman, a republican
paper, speaking of the Oregon'mn, snys :
"Tho Poitland Buzzard kept the fact
of the existence of smallpox in that
city quiet until it became next thing
to epidemic, for fear of injuring somo
Portland merchants business and los
ing an advertisement. The Buzzard is
most absolutely edited by its business
office." Buzzard. It appears to us
that that is a very appropriate namo
and should bo adopted .permanently.
PitoK. llArroui) doos not liko our
criticism on. his pootio effusion to Wal
lowa Luke, and in tho Milton Eagle,
lelieves his feelings. Ho concludes
that wo are destined to inhabit u troi
ical lake alongside of which tho Wal
lowa lake is nothing. Ugh ! Jt is quite
ovidunt that tho biin light of morcy,
lovo and charity have never illumined
his benighted mind. Wo have no
harsher fooling than pity for such a
man. A typographical error wo made
in republishing his verses is the basis
of his conclusions that wo will sweat
in tho sweet bye and bye.
Twknty-two counties of tho state
have tiled .copies of their assessment
rolls in tho olllee of tho secretary of
state. Tho seven counties that havo
not reported are, Ilenton, ha ne, Mari
on, Multnomah, Polk, Wasco and
Yamhill. Some of tho counties have
notified the secretary's olllee that their
rolls will not bo filed before Decembdr
1st. So tho computation and appor
tionment of -the state levy of taxes for
hSS'.l will not probably bo nmdo before
Tiik cabinet maker who aro en

Thutii can never die. During the
. next four years the great moral forces
, of the nation will gather themselves
f' r u final elruggle, and will gain a
victory porninnont and lasting in its
results. Four years is a suincicnt
time in which to educuto tho ignorant,
cnthuj'O the indifferent, and give tho
iron hand of Monopoly a chance to
t leave its imprint on the backs of tho
people. The timo will be ripe, tho

! whom all eyes will bo turned that day
will bo the Champion of tlieI'coplc,

land. B. F. Underwood, of Chicago, 111.,
and Clark Bradcn, of Ottawa, Kansas,
j commenced a tlieological distussion in
l Silverton, Marion county, last Wed
j newlay, which is to continue eight
1 days. Discussions of this kind are of
incalculable benefit and should bo
i largely attended. It is worthy of re
j mark that not many years ago tho
( bigotry of tho masses would have
j made such a debate impossible, which
' goes to show that we are advancing,
and, as tho "old world swings triumph
ant down tho ringing grooves of timo"
t he music is an inspiration and beats
j in unison with tho progressive march
I'AitTiEK over from La Grande in
form us that several would-be Nasbys
aro circulating petitions for their ap
pointment as postmaster at that place,
and that the scramble for tho Land
Ollieo rcsemblt s more than anything
else a lot of dogs fighting for a bone,
there being no less than half a dozen
aspirants. It seems to us that some of
tho rcpubs. are not going to bo reward
ed as thoy think they deserve there
will not, bo enough offices. The party
manipulators here in Union are equal
ly hungry, tho most of them also
having that Land Office in view. We
are told that Sanator Dolph was utter
ly disgusted at tho way he was besieged
on his recent visit to Union. All the
offices, without doubt, will soon bo
tilled by republicans that is what
thoy belong to tho parly for that is
tho incentive that made them work
for its suceets. But while this is a
lnmentablo fact there is such a thing
as .mitigating tho evil somewhat, and
it remains in tho hands of democrats
to cost their iniluorice in favor of the
least objectionable candidates. Theso
will not bo the old toughened chronics,
but younger men men imbued with
the spirit of progress and devoid of tho
narrow prejudices belonging to a gen
eration that is passed. These aro the
men that will receive our support, and
tbeothers 'may stand from under.
When tho piopel'timu arrives wo have
a currying in store for somo of them
that will cause them to wince, but will
bo none tho less thoroughly applied.
A .Sti-miRo KpliU'liilc.
A Pcndlototi gentleman returned recent
ly from an extended .sojourn in fho Pig
Pond country, says that the typhoid epi
demic which 1ms been rugi'iR in that sec
tion is a terrible and unexplninnhlr one.
The graveyards at ltltsvllle, Watorvillo and
other towns havo been occupied by new
inailu mound, and iliany a mourner is left
to bewail the loss of luvcd ones. Strong
nu'ii, who never before experienced a sink
day in their lives, were stricken down al
most in a day, and many there were whose
lives were thus suddenly willed. Tho epi
deiuio is one of those mysterious happen
Injrs which can be explained on no grounds
of .scientille hygiene. The climate i.s said
to be suliibrious and agreeable, and the
general state of the weather not conducive
to dlscuse. The mnlailay probably results
from some obscure cause, possibly in at
mospheric condition which cannot be dis
covered. A Statement.

The First Sign
Of falling health, whether in tho form of
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
sense of General Weariness and Ijoss of
Appetite, should suggest tho use of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. This preparation
is roost effectivo for giving tone and
strength to the enfeebled system, pro
moting tho digestion and assimilation of
food,; restoring tho nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify
ing, enriching, and vitalising tho blood.
Ten years ago my health began to fall.
I was troubled with a distressing Cough,
NightiSweats, Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pro
scribed by different physicians, out
becamo so weak that I could not go up
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friends recommended mo to try Ayor's
Sarsaparilla, which I did, and I am now
as healthy and strong as ever. Mrs.
K. L. Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terriblo disease I havo
also prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an
altorative, and must say that I honestly
bolievo it to be tho best blood mcdicino
ever compounded. "W. F. Fowler, M. D.,
D. D. S., Greenville, Tenn.
It would bo impossible for mo to de
scribe what I suffered from Indigestion
and Headache up to the timo I began
taking Ayor's Sarsaparilla. I was under
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary ro
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for a short time, my headache disap
peared, and my stomach performed its
duties more perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored. Mary
Harley, Springfield, Mass.
I havo been greatly benefited by the
prompt uso of Ayor's Sarsaparilla. It
tones and invigorates tho system, regu
lates tho action of tho digestive and
nssimilativo organs, . and vitalizes tho
blood. It is, without doubt, tho most
reliables blood purifier yet discovered.
