C. I. JlANi-oni) hu.s boon appointed
Chief Justice of Washington Territory
by President Harrison, and the senate
lms confirmed his appointment.
CJov. J'Kx.vovi'jt hue appointed the fol
lowing horticultural commission : Dr.
.7. II. Card well and Henry K. J)osch of
Portland, Jt. S. Walluco of Salem, 8.
D. Whitman of Modford, .Tas. A. Var
ney of the Dallos, and .lame Ilendor
Miolt of Cove.
TitK Ailariun says: "The 0. 11. &
N. Co. can't handle tho Columbia riv
er flleamboat ongineorn as easily as it
did tho Oregon legislature." Woll,
hardly, and that company is finding
out that the pcoplo of Eastern Oregon
aro not as servile slaves to it as they
used to bo.
Tin: worst hind of competition
comes from men who do not undr -
htand thoir business. This is the elasa
that cuts prices and generally demor
alizes business. They aro found in all
lines of trade and generally succeed in
making their creditors pay foi thoir
lack of knowledge.
Tiiiiui: is still forty-seven aspirants
in tho field for tho position of United
States Marslmhihip of Oregon. Xot
ono has shown a disposition to with
draw from the contest. Put then it is
not reasonable to expect a hungry
man to withdraw from the banquet
when there is any thing insight to fill
up with. That's what tho banquet
was prepared for.
. Jt is suggested that among other
things, tho phonograph may bo used
as an automatic novel reader, with
each character speaking as it were in
propria persona. That is tho phono
gram will ho produced with tho various
voices as in nature, all tho inileclion
of passion, sorrow, sympathy, ridicule
and sarcasm, and song, etc., uttered to
it originally by professional elocution
ists dialecticians and singers.
iMrs. Lucy Stone Kays: "Wo idiall
never have tho churches full of nion
until thopulpits aio filled with wonion."
That might be a drawing card laiey,
douhtlcsM many bald-headed sinners in
the front eeat would bo saved, but (hero
would bo n marked decrease in tho
attendance of ladies, which would mako
tho matter as bad or worse than it is
now. You had bettor prcinit nature to
take its course, Lucy, and lot tho bald
heads go to the devil.
(Jov. 11 ii.i, of Now York in a letter
to tho Halom Democrat club makes a
.stirring appeal to tho Democracy.
Wo givo ono extract : "Our linen have
been driven hack, it is true, but wo are
not dismayed, and tho contest must
inevitably go on. If wo now prove ro
erent to tho trust, the progress of tariff
reform may ho delayed, but tho day
is not far distant when tho Domooratio
principle of equal participation in tho
benefits of taxation shall bo controlling
and supremo. To win tho contest
our weapons must bo those which will
enlighten tho ignorant and reloaio the
i'redulous from thoro fears."
Tin: Orfyanian assorts that "not a
penny was Bpent in trying to piuh
the Hull Jvun tfohomo through the leg
islature." Probably not a penny of
Portland's money was spout for thnt
purpose, but one only has to glance nt
tho number of appropriation jobs that
passed the legislature to be convinced
that over $100,000 of state money was
( xpended to got Portland's pet meas
ure through. Tho Portland delega
tion held ho balance of power in tho
legislature, and they dished out with
no sparing hand appropriations for
pet measures whenovor it would mako
u vote for thoir non-taxable bonds bill.
When tho nost slato tax levy is mado
the pcoplo will rolise that they, mil
Portland, have paid pretty dearly for
the Hull Hun sohomo. Pni'i7

have realized tint situation already, and

with tho rapid decay of honorable re

Cleveland is tho greatest Jiving
champion, will probably place many

Wo would rather see Mr.- Cleveland
president than any other American,

ONH Olf TlfK CAUIMRT.
Thoro is something j)eculiatly funny
about the make up of .John Wanna
makor, Postmivster-Oeneral of theme
United States. Last year he busied
himself with raising IjtlCO.OOO among
his rich quaker friends in Philadelphia
for tho mo of the Republican cam
paign committor, which ho knew was
to be spont in any way, corrupt and
otherwise, to bring about success,
while all the time in his individual
life he was striving to bring about hot
ter morality by his active work in tho
Sunday Schools of Philadelphia. Air.
Wananiaker must havo known ' that
tho corrupt uso of !?4fi0,000 in n single
campaign would do more harm to
morals than he would be able to cor
rect in his whole life timo. That he
know this cannot bo denied, but at tho
same timo ho felt that tho success of
tho republican party meant better
things to him, moro power, more prof
its, more money, more protootion to
tho few, more benefit to the monopo
lists. So the selfishness of his exist
ence conquered the bolter and higher
principles of his soul, and John Wau
amnker became Postmaster-General of
a great nation through the influence
of his corruption fund of $.150,001).
After, knowing this a man who reads
tho following "sickening stun"" from
tho newspaper dispatches from Philu-,
dolphin, Mr. Wanauiaker's home,
grows exceedingly weary and disgust
ed with groat lives, of which our Postmaster-General's
is a sample :
"Postmastor-Ueneral John Wana
makor in his Sunday school looked un
like the man who hud helped niateri-
ally to elect the republican national 1
ticket. His Sunday school is held in
the lletlmny Presbyterian church
which Wanmiiaker built. Tho Post-niustei-Ooneral
Thoro was a larger number of scholars
in attendance than usual and the
building was crowded to the doors with
visitors and members of tho superin
tendent's Bible class.
"After tho routine work, his Bible
class and a largo number of spectators
retired to a largo room. Before be
ginning tho lesson, Wuunmakor said
he proposed to organixe a vesper meet
ing, to bo hold at 7 o'clock in the
" Mint don.t you aH oome, please
don't you all come, for there won't be
room for you.'
" 'Now,' ho continued, 'if our choir
will just kindly give us some music 1
will look oor those- communications.'
"When tin male choir h:'d flnMie,!,
he went on : 'Oh, hero is one from a
frtoud of ouis whoi husband is dxing.
(!od help the widow and her (ami!).

The 12nst Portland Vindicator, in
making a comparison of the old and
young members of the late legislature,
'There were two young members in
the lower house of the late legislature;
Hon. Jeff Myers, of Linn county, and
Hon. Robert A. Miller, of Jackson.
The former is in his twenty-sixth year
and the latter a few years older.
These young men returned to their
homes taking with them the confi
dence and respect of all with whom
they came in cmtacl. They din-
played nn adaptability to tho duties i
of tho positions they were called to
fill, bj the manly course they pursued,
and the manifest purity of the motives
by which they were governed. Con
trast the noble conduct of these young
men with that of Senator Watts, of
Yamhill, tho accused bribe taker, the
girl swindler, tho lecher, the quack.
That man is more than sixty-live years
old, a giant in avoirdupois and a pig
my in intellect. He is a Good Temp
lar, n profeseod Christian minister and
a man of high moral ideas. The
hoary old villian' has been accused of
crimes which no newspaper would
stoop bo low an to present in print and
which could only find record in tho
annals of a criininnl court. Away
with the foolish idea that none but old
men are safe counselors, and that
thoso of fewer years aro qualified only
for I ho battle field. Such a theory is
worthy of tho dark ages which gave it
birth. The world has advanced and
mankind has attained a more exalted

Some of theeo 'dowiib' two very exten

of thorn is used tolely for tho jiastur-
ago of sheep, a bu&iness in which they
aro us far ahead of us, as wo arc ahead
of rticin in everything else. For my
part 1 would like to puo Australian
wool let into America free of duty, to
fur as Oregon is concerned. It would
develop the marvelous water jwiwer of
Oregon in the next decade, ta no oilier
cawso could develop it in the next fifty
years. If we could produce tho eumo
quality of wool here ourselves, 1 would
fay go ahaad and tax it to keep it out.
But knowing, as i do, that we do not
grow it, and never can, 1 should liko
