Thomas Burko, of Seattle, to ;bo Chief

Hknky GV.oiwk, who is in England
writes home thus:
England appreciates the significance
of Harrison's election and tho protec
tion victory in his couutry. The Tory
preys f.vprestca Tory satisfaction over
the result, while tho democratic press is
not happy, and tho more democratic
tho paper tho loss its happinesH. It is
a curious fact, and one which Irish
Americans who voted for Harrison
might profitably consider, that Ireland's
bitterest enemies in England aro glad
of Harrison's election, while her truest
friends there are sorry for Cleveland's
ItKritKEKKTATiVK HoitMAN has in
troduced a resolution in congress di

report what action if any has been ta

any part of the land grant to The Dal
les .Military Wagon Road Company of

been restored to sottlemt'iit. Herrman
at thosamo time submitted a memorial
to congress from the Wiweo county

1'ittvATi; DaijZrli, claims to bo ono of
the founders of Iho Grand Army of the
Republic, and he has certainly long
been recognized as ono of its most
prominent aud 'zealous members. It
may be presumed therefore, that he
not only speaks from knowledge, but
authority, wJieu he Hays: "Tho re
publican party has no other use for tho
O. A. R. than to keep it in power, and
tho G. A. R. has no other use for. the
republican party but to get monoy as
bounty aud pensions. This is Alpha
and Omega well understood and
clearly expressed in all our contracts
over since tho war." In jusiico to pri

dom has a larger amount of cold truth
been put into two short MMiloncct;.

This system is tho suject of several
inquiries from correspondents', cays the
Philadelphia. I'recs, and the plan is
likely next winter to bo before enough 1
legislatures, including that of this slate
to make its general knowledge impor
tant. The ballot system in force in
this country docs not guarantee secrecy
and it requires ballots to bo prepared
by private or party enterprise- and ser
ved at ovory poll. Tho latter requisite i
akufl it utterly impossible to "run n
candidate unlo.-s ho is hacked by an or-
ganization large enough or with money
enough to havo a man at each polling
place with his ballots. Under the Aus
tralian systom the ballots are printed
by the state, and all candidalos nomi
nated a certain time boforo tho election
appear on these ballots, and no other
can boused. Instead of having a sop
arato ballot for each candidate, all the
candidates for ono office aro on tho
same ballot, and each voter marks his
choice in a loom by himself. Tho re
sult is that no one can know how he
votes, and in sonio election laws under
this system tho voter is prohibited
from telling. how ho voted under pen
alty, so as to reliovo him from pressure
he might not bo able to resist. The j vry farmer occupying bottom lands
practical result of tho Australian sys- j will tell yon tho same story, not
torn is far more freedom of action, col- among his own stock, as thoy aro ac
lectively and individually, for voters I customed to it, but of neighbors' teams
andgrealer opportunity for intelligent j f"m tho uplands, that occasionally
voting. In order to run a candidate ! l,nt P ov"' "'K1 ked off new
an oxpensivo organization is not need

trade of buying votes cannot tell
whether tho vote, is delivered and havo
no way of finding out.
KKI.KlION'S FINANCIAL .STlUJfiOLE.
Ever .inco tho beginning of (ho
Christian era, says Bill Nye, from tho
tinio tho lirit request was madu for
necessary funds to spread religon over
as large a territory as possible, from
tho earliest and simplest religion down
to tho intolerance and caraway teed of
of the Puritans), and the more refined j
and spectacular devotion of to-day, the j
great problem, as 1 may say, has boon
how best to save tho largest number of ,
souls and still pay oxponses. Every
moans, from tho sword and the rack
down to tho bean-bag aud (he humor
ous lectures, have boon employed to
woo the coy and reluctant seudi from
its Inir. (lontlo words, kind glances,
melting tears, uuauKWcrablo logic in
the pulpit and tho pleadings of tho j
press havo united to build churches !
and to spread tho gospel in order to j
make men hotter aud to bless tho ;
world. (Women wore good enough to j
start with.) But what a battle it hits
been to make leligiou bclf-supporting !
How many pangs, and timrs, and heart-,
burnings, anil iwiotion-cakws with frost-1
ing on Ihoni it hascofct. ThoHnanoial

Mr. A. C. Coe, of Hood Kiver, writes
as follows to the Scientific American:
In tho scientific American of Oc'o
ber 1.1, under tho heading of "Natu
ral History Notes," you speak of the
"loco" or "crazy weed" of Texas and
that its reputed power of producing
Jnwinitj- and death has been proved
' ruu i m in
nocence oi ine "loco weed i cannot
contradict; but tho fact of a certain
weed (by some called the "loco") that
grows on the Columbia river bottoms
between tho "Cascades" and "The
DdJles," that will cause temporary in
sanity in horses not accustomed to
feed on the bottom lands, is loo well
known to doubt. Although 1 havo
never seon any animal directly under
tho influence' of (he weed, yet 1 havo
seen them immediately afterward,
and tho signs were unmistakable tho
animal with his head and foro legs
bruised and bleeding, the stall, manger
and feed boxes totally demolished, and
donoting a terrible struggle.- Almost
lowland hay. Tho teams are watered
and securely tied in their stalls and
bountifully fed on tho bright, soft hay
from tho overflowed lands. About
midnight tho owner is awakened by a
terrific uproar in the stables. Hasten
ing thither, the teamstoj is astonished
: to see Ids horso or horses in a perfect.
t frensy of madnoss, roaring, striking,
biting and kicking. Nothing, how
i ever, can bo done until tho effects of
tho woed pass off, and morning finds
tho horse, if ho has not injured him
self, but little tho worse for his night's
antiee. What weed this is I do not
know, norliavo I ever found any one
that could positively say that they
know, but it is certain that (hero is
something in tho new cut bottom hay
that will causo tomporary insanity in
horses. It is no uncommon thing to
sco iv man driving a horso with a
bruised nnd swollen head, and, upon
inquiring tho cause, ho will answer,
"Oh, I was down on the bottoms last
night, and my horso got a dose of
crazy woed. Whether this is tho
famous "loco woed," or whethor it is
confined to this locality, is beyond my
"ken." I should like to hoar from
