We iud fetro weeks ago: "If we fail
to obtain it (division) the blame must
rest on intrigue emanating from the pres
ent county seat, -whence has issued all
the' opposition hitherto." The East Ore
gonian, of Pendleton, rushes forward to
fill the breach,, as the representative of
seat. We are ready to admit its claim
to that distinction.' But when it char
acterizes our statement as "a willful and
malicious lalsehood," we feel sorry that
this! unwise, bull-dog style of argument
has Btill a prominent place in that jour
nal, j However, we reiterate the state
ment "with a full knowledge of all the
circumstance?' and beg to assure that
excited journal that the whole country
knows our statement to be true.
Again, the E. 0. says, regarding Bla
lock Precinct, "unless it (Leader) puts
its charges in some tangible shape, the
only conclusion is that their authors
knowing their falsity dare not trin
them before thn public i-jc refutation."
Very well, E. U., we believe the poll-
books' were stolen by interested parties
who were awar that Blalock Precinct
would! support division of UmatUla Co.
Dr. Blalack'a son reported in brief, thus:
"At the time the poll-books arrived at
the precinct, a young man, a stranger
there, arrived also, and in answer to his
question, Mr. Colby informed him they
intended supporting Division. lie (the
stranger) hung round the office for a
time, then disappeared without saying
good-bye' to any one. Shortly after
wards, on looking for the books, they
could no be found anywhere. , The
young man was tall, slim, dressed in

light brown clothes, and had little or no
hair on tis face. One of the men who
saw him, said he was a young lawyer
Thus while no person saw the books
stolen, there is a reasonable suspicion
that thej were stolen, but still no positive
proof whatever. We hope the E. 0. will
see why we believed fraud existed, and
yet did not want to wake any strong ac
cusation. But as we learned from the
Tribune that the books were tampered
with at Pendleton subsequently, we sup
posed thai if fraud was perpetrated in
one instance, it was reasonable to infer
witjj such evidence, that the poll books
were fraudulently taken from Blalock
Precinct, j If the E. 0. desires fuller par
ticulars they can be given.
Tuesday was a gala day at Walla
Walla. In preparation for the visit of
the Presidential party, the streets were
gaily decorated in profusion and good
taste. A grand arch had been erected
Main street, decorated with ever
greens, and turtner adorned witn cereai
and other substantial products of the
Territory. : Immense pumpkins, squashes,
sheaves of wheat, oats, etc, beautiful ap
ples and mammoth vegetables of various
kinds each spoke their silent but expres
sive speeches, as the gorgeously-escorted
party passed under the arch. The places
of business were closed, all desiring to do
honor to the office of President About
11:30 the party arrived, and were receiv
ed by the Reception Committee, and
received an address of welcome from
Judge Wingard. It was most excellent,
being replete with wit, pleasantry and
wisdom, and introducing the varied re
sources of the Territory to the Presidetial
ear. The President spoke cheerfully and
encouragingly, creating a favorable im
pression among the audience. . Secretary
Ramsey followed in a jocular strain, and
complimented the valley on its products
and prospects. Gen. Sherman followed,
paying a glowing and deserved tribute
to the romantic Columbia, "the most
beautiful river in the world." Mr3.
Hayes being called for, bowed to the
assemblage, and received genuine and
hearty arplause. She is an unusually
fine looking woman, commending general
admiration and respect A general
"hand-shaking" reception was given in
the afternoon, which must have exhaust
ed the party very much. Altogether the
affair was successful and creditable in
the highest degree to that handsome,
rapidly and substantially growing city,
We present on first page, a copy of H.
B. 52, introduced by P. J. Kelly, who
represents us in the Legislature. Our
citizens all remember that Mr. Kelly

faithfully and energetically for such di
vision of Umatilla county as would

new county to be called Knx county.
But Mr. Kelly has introduced a bill giv
ing us, at .this .end, a county Wise
embracing less territory than is satisfac
tory to five-sixths of the voters of said
territory. If Mr. Kelly advocates the
bill he introduced, he .is faithless to his
promises and recreant to the trust re
posed in hiso. Mr. Kelly at the June
leption was accused of leing the tool of
the Pendleton "rini." Sec 8 of bis bill
recalls this accusation. Reader, peruse

on .QoaJ a4 Wise. If UmatUla would
make any recompense, as in the shape of
assuming present indebtedness, all would
be well. - We have, however, too much
confidence in the good sense of the Ore
gon Legislature as to suppose they will
consent to the formation of Coal and
Wise, wih such difficulties to eontend
with from their inception.

The average Republicans have so far
failed to produce anything or a serious
nature against the Democracy or their
candidate, and finding the grave charges
against the Republicans and their candi
date incapable of refution, but yet being
unwilling to concede the point, now take
refuge behind their imaginary fears of a
"Solid Soutli," and give that as a reason
for adhering to a party -whoBe 3ay of
usefulness is pr-st forevur. It would be
interesting o know what particular evil
is to accrue from the election of Hancock
by the aid of the " Solid South." It is
true that in jail the tenebrious forebod
ing on this question, no definite cause of
alarm has been mentioned. The loyalty
of Hancock to the Union the most
cowardly wil not dare to traduce, the
payment of the rebel claims is forbidden
by the Constitution, Secession is dead
beyond resurection, and yet we are daily
reminded that the altitude of the "bolid
South" is threatening, that it looks bus
picious and that they vote tie Democrat
ticket. It would be in order for those
who can see danger in the solidity of the
Somth to formulate their fears, that we

Eds. Leader : Gentlemen My mind was
much bamboozled in tr ing to detect the gist
of your Milton correspondent's article on "Mu
sical Mendacity." I had to refer to Webster
who says, "It is an habitual dispoMtion to lie
about music." In conclusion the writer ex
claims, "why can't we be honest about this as
about other things ? If we were we would do
away with much of the music that ix merely
an annoyance, etc." I would ask this musical
paragon where he would strike the dividing
line between the good and bad music. The
Greeks defined music to be the "Arts of the
Muses," which at first included poetry and
eloquence, restricted at a later period to
rhvthxa or measured tones. Of the two
nobler senses of man's nature, sight and hear
ing, th?e first seems to belong more iarlicu-
larly to the understanding. By sight we are
enabled to scan the universe around us, to cull
the choicest gems, wherewith to store the un
derstanding, while the ear is more particu
larly connected with the emotions. Music is
interwoven and seems to be part and parcel of
the very texture of the homan soul . ltd pow
er is felt alike by the civilized and the savage
man, by every nation, tribe, kindred or people.
in every age and every land where has beat

every emotion that agitates the human bregtst
love, joy, anger, sorrow and despair the
battle cry or the shouts of victory are ex
pressed by particular tones which all men un
But it cannot be expected that all persons
are able to appreciate music, owing perhaps
to 'defective organization. Then again that
style of music that is exhilerating to one indi
vidual may vibrate harshly in another bosom,
A wealthy gentleman who took great delight
in hounds, was entertaining a friend when his
pack of do!s was passing in full cry. "Do
you hear that music?" said the landlord. The
friend listened, and answered that he could
hear nothing but "tbe uoise of those infernal
Then again we were amused at reading of
the vikit of Parson Brown to old SistetSnrith.
While the parson Was conversing he heard a
nise and remarked: ''Sister Smith, do you
keep a coat they are very good animals, do
cile, give milk for the coffee should like to
have one myself." Mrs. Smith replied: "the
noise you hear is nit a geat; it is my daughter
practicing the chords." But says Staccato,
this is "execrable." Perhaps so.
Speaking of cats reminds me, of the music
of our choir of Weston torn cats. When they
meet to practice some obtuse minds suggest
boot -jacks or shot guns. Not so the under
signed. A few evenings ago, we rolled from
the arms of Morpheus and stood at a wiadow
to enjoy tbe exercises of the choir. No. 1 led
off with a long, low, sad wail, expressive of
bis wrongs and his sorrows and a desire for
revenge. No. 2 suggested a much higher key.
No. 3, 4 and 5 pitched their voices two octaves
higher, and the music proceeded, gathering
volume and inieusity till the chorus came in
after the fashion of a cotton gin. -
Then, says "Staccato." "to listen to the
gush as in all politeness, bound over some
miserable performance is perfectly agonizing."
So seemed to think our old torn cat on coping
borne to breakfast this morning. We would
not contend that all kind of music are enti
tled toluudation. For instance, the braying of
donkeys, the howling of canines, the squeak
ing of gates, the grating of prison hinges, or
the filing of saws. If such is the k nd of
music Staccato hears nt Milton he may be to
some extent excusable for calling it a miser
able performance. SUGGS.
