if Bishop Peck, Bishop Tuttle, Bish
op Scott or any other well-known
divine was to come here, and he too
not only bring a budget of certifi

goes from town to town. These
ideas have suggested themselves
from the fact that we see a certain
individual who claims to be tho
"saved sinner" getting up certifi
cates in every place he goes, and
while his great good is not then vis
ible, it is expected to show itself af
ter he leaves. Bat wo find, since
this individual has got into the cow-
counties, or interior, where the press
are not afraid of losing a subscriber
by doing what they regard their
duty, ho is not meeting with the
same nattering comments as he did
at Portland where the revival com
mittee employed and paid for their
reporter. The Eugene Journal
gives him the following notice:
Thursday last will long bo remem
bered in Eugene as a day of general
excitement. At 11 a. m. a special
train arrived with a number of ladies
and gentlemen from Albany and
brought with them the modern re
vivalist of the Pacific coast. They
started like a band of crusaders to
wards jjane s xi.au wnero tho exer
cises commenced, consisting of sing
ing and shouting and telling their

and charged them with gross wick
edness and ignorance, saying that
thev lived "away off in the Oregon
back-woods, did not read tho papers
or know what was going -on in the
world." Now, if this Kev. gentle
man wishes to convert the ieople of
Salem, such speeches must be few
and far between. If he will inquire
at tho Salem postoffico he will find
that tho peoplo of this place take
more religious papers than any simi
lar number on the coast, if not in
the Union. Not only this, but our
ministers are earnest and true men
and there is an average amount of
vital piety in our churches, and as
largo a proportion at least of our
people atteud church, and observe
the everw day duties of religion as
is usual in such places. The people
f this place, moreover are not fools.
They are able, as a general rule, to
detect shams, and avoid humbugs
even though they come in tho shape
of professed teachers of religion.
The Albany Democrat intimates
that tho clownish manners of this re
vivalist do not come up to its stand
ard of orthodox religion. The shame
is being found out and he will need
tho certificates of good men to carry
hiia through, not only in this world
but iu the next.
Lot aii's Evidence.
Wo call attention to the testimony
of tho Boiler Inspector for this dis
trict, in order to show on whom the
responsibility of tho explosion of the
steamer Senator ought to rest. It
will bo observed that the testimony
shows that tho Senator's boiler was
rated as a 54 inch, constructed of
iron Ji of an inch in thickness; now
Mr. Lotan says "he dont knotc what
tho tensile strength of iron is;' that
he did not know rchat the tensile
strength of the Senator's boiler was
when ho inspected it and gave a cer
tificate. But he rated it at 60,000
pounds to the inch. The book re
ferred to in Mr. Lotan's testimony
as having been - compiled by the
Board of Supervising Inspectors of
the United States shows in its appro
priate colamn that new boilers 54
inches 26-100 of an inch thick (the
actual size of tho Senator's) made
from plates tested and stamped as re
quired by law to 60,000 pounds
were only allowed to carry 96 30-100
pounds of steam. But James Lotan
perils the lives and property of our
citizens by allowing an 18 year old
boiler, which- he says "becomes
crystalized" by use and thereby
looses its capacity to resist pressure
to carry nearly four pounds of steam
more than a new boiler.
"Did you take into consideration
the age? No sir." In other words
an old rusty shell of a boiler, that
time and tho action of water and heat
had destroyed and disintegrated by
18 years of constant use, is by the
gross ignorance, to say nothing of
criminal responsibilities of a govern
ment official, allowed to send a half
dozen unsuspecting Tictims into
We think that no man who reads
the testimony will fail to agree with
us, that his instant removal should
be demanded of the party in power,
before another fearful catastrophe
awakens the community to a sense of
its danger in the hands of such a
grossly ignorant or wilfully careless
Inspector. We have had enough of
ignorance and stupidity imposed up
on us as a reward for a small word
politician's influence to perpetuate
the reign of the ring.

The Public Confidence Well Placed.
Although the world has been seeking
specifics for disease many eenturies.few
indeed have been found. Prominent
among these few is Hostetter's Stomach
Ditters, which years ago received the
endorsement of the medical profession,
and was hailed by press and public as
the great renovant and preventive of
the age. And with good reason, since
to the weakened stomach it gives
strength, to the torpid liver activity, to
the disordered liowels regularity, and
to the shaken nervous system firmness
and tone. Under its benignant influ
ence healthful vi.or returns to t lie de
bilitated and wasted frame, the llaccid
muscles become compact, the wan as
pect of ill health is replaced by a look
of cheerfulness, the mind ceases to des
pond, and tlesh is developed upon the
attenuated frame. There is no exag
geration in this statement. It is as true
as that the system is subject to disease.
Were proofs required to substantiate
the reality of thecomprehensiveeireets
of the Ditters, there is probably not in
existence a medicine in favor of which
