Tin: present law of .Indiana allows
mrties to have as few men on a iurv
as they please. One man will do if
they can ncroo on him. This is get-
tfng rid of a great deal that was objee-
tionablo in tho jury law, and if it works
i :e ;
well there, wo may expect to sbo it in
troduced elsewhere. In time they
may do away even with one juror and
have courts based on a principle of ar
bitration. Justice is something tho
world has tried to compass for, thous
ands of years and it has often boon true
that the moro justice a ihau paid for
tho less ho got.

Sow: mkm havo an idea because
"business is business," that much of
the politeness of lifo is to bo dropped an
soon as they touch their oflico chair
or their store door closes them in. In
other words they seem to act, "Now
look out for mo T am your friend in
a social way, but I'll skin you alive if
you havo anything to do with mo in a
business way." It is very true that
"business is business," and any man
who useu the fact of any friendly social
relaxation to advance his own ends at
tho expense of yours should bo "tired."
This is no excuse for your cold illntt
tured behavior and boorishness. A
gentleman is a gentleman inside his
placo of businc.Ms as well as out of it.
Nhxt YKAit every farmor in the Uni
ted .States will bo visited by a paid and
accredited olllccr of tlio government
and asked to givo statistics of his farm,
crops, stock, otc, for tho previous year
that is tho year 1881). Tho sugges
tion has been made that in order to be
prepared to givo the census laker ac
curate information, farmers should be
gin now to keep account of all farm
operations and keep it up through tho
year. In this way only can tlio agri
cultural statistics of tho census report
bo nuulo to havo any practical value.
Keep an accurate record of the num
ber of bushels of all kinds of grain
raised, of hay and root crops, of butler
and cheese, also of cattle, sheep and
hogs, not forgetting chickens and eggs.
Attention to theso details will niako
up a good showing for our county.
Wh notice that several men, who owe
moro or less money, are disposing of
thoir property to their wives or somo
other relativo. This is not a safo pro
ceeding, as those sales can and will be
set aside for fraud. Courts of justice
will not countonanco such dishonest
attempts to defraud creditors, and have
rendered decisions adversely to that
kind of business. Tho court of appeals
of Maryland has also recently decided
that in caso of property hold by a
woman tho ' proof must always bo at
hand that it was paid for out of her
own money, and if that is not furnished
it is taken for granted that tho husband
furnished tho purchaso money. Tnis
decision has caused consternation
there, as it involves titles to ono-thinl
of tho proporty in tho state and leaves
that property all liable for tho debts
of tho husband. Good lawyers hold
that this decision has foundation in
common law and is applicable to all

I do not believe it is possible lo ea

people counted by tho head. That
proceeds upon tho supposition Unit the
rich and tho poor, tho wUo and tho
ignorant, tho virtuous and tho vicious
are all counted as equal and endowed
with equal political power. That is
tho fatal vice of your institutions that
Jefferson founded. Now, your country
can pre sper so long as you have great
spaces of unoccupied land; a great
AVtfst for your surplus popula
tion; hut tho time will como in your
history when New Kngland will bu an

It is that if the railroads can (afford to
pay commissions on tickets gold, they
can afford to lower their prices by just
the amount thus paid, and, the com
mission has accordingly had a hearing
on tho subject, and may probably
mako a ruling that the roajfls mast re
duce rates in proportion.
IIbv. Edward EveheSt Hale, in
The Cosmopolitan, write in favor of a
compulsory life insurance for every
body. The plan is ffor mon and
women alike, as soon fe they are old
enough to work for ft lining, to begin to
pay the stato an annual insurance
The payment woulji continuo up to
the time the payer was 65 yours old,
then he could retire on his pension and
live without work tno remaindor of his
days, if his payments bad been large
enough. At any rate he would rcocive
a regular fixed amount, which would
prevent hia becoming a public burden
Tlio state would nvest tho funds paid
in, aim got retusns trom tnom.as pn
vato insurince companies do at
present. ThcnJ is in Germany a law
requiring the inuuranco of the lives of
factory operatives. Thoro is also a
compulsory accident insurance in
which all Germans are included.
Those laws wcro favorite incisures
Tlio systAni of taxation appears to
bo badly inuddlod in Oregon. Tho
figures of the last assessment roll of
this Klalo show that Multnomah coun
ty only returns ? 1,585,055 under the
heading "money, notes and accounts,"
etc., while Umatilla shows nearly a
quartor million moro, Yamhill only a
about ono quarter million let-s, and
Wasco county $850,000. Thoro nio
very fow who do not believe that Port
land has a larger valuation than this
with till her banks and capitalists;
but it lessens her proportion of State
taxes, and throws this burden on other
places. Jf the same system of valua
tion was followed in tho different coun
ties of Oregon, snys Tho Dalles-Times
Mountaineer, tho levy would havo to
bo increased materially to mako up
tho necessary amount of Mate ex
penses. This is all wrong, and some
method should bo pursued to cqualixo
valuation. Wo understand that twelve
counties in tho State returned a less
valuation of property JUist year than
tho one provious, and hardly anyone
will believe that there has been any
docroaso in property in tho last few
years; but on the contrary a largo
increase. There is something radical
ly wrong in all this, and there should
bo some kind of system adopted by nil
tibsotisors. Where there is an unequal
valuation thoro must bu injustice done
lo goino taxpayers,
no juouk co.nritoraisE.
Mr. Kamuel J. Kaiulull thinks the
domocmtR can secure the next presi
dent ami the next House, If they cau
"gel togother." The traitorous NV
York Hun takes this up and urges, the
"getting together," CM courao this
moans the abandonment, by the groat
majority of democrats, of their princi
ples, and going over to tho Randall
minority. It means tho sacrifice of
tho cause of tho people in order to
gain the support of the plutocrats.
Wo desire no such mooess u t but.
Tho democratic party conceded ul- ;
together too much last year altogeth
er too much in the Mills lull. That
bill was only a slight uU p in the riyht
direction. We might as well take tho
whole step and plant our.-ohvt. .square

It expresses our sentiments exactly.
No compromise of any kind should be
made but an aggressive and unrelent
ing warfare should be kept up until
the Hight prevails. The unparalleled
robbery of the people under the guise
of a protective tariff must be stopped
and it is tho work of the democratic
party to slop it. If tho party falters

"8ix hundred and sovenly-four years

dropped his torch to the ground. "My
God ! these trees were older than the
landing of Columbus, older than Magna
Ohartit, older than tho first translation
of tho bible into English, and last
week they stood with a thousand years
of lifo ahead of them, and these loggers
of Knuppa havo leveled them to tho
earth with ns little sense of what they
aro doing as tho Vandals had when
thoy overturned the immortal sculp
tures of Koine,- and trampled the
triumphs of art under the hoofs of
thoir chargers 1 It is simply brutal.
But tho trees will have long and sure
revenge. Boston would givo a mill-'
ion of dollars to have two such trees,
growthful and strong, with six cen
turios of growth and ten centuries of
lifo ahead of them, on her common."
