A correspondent of the Statesman
proposes a remedy for illegal voting ;
a remedy equally fair to both Repub
licans and Democrats ; one wliich will
work no inconvenience to honest men.
The remedy is this :
Let the Legislature pass a law re
quiring every man who desires to vote
to register his name m the precmct m
which he expects to vote at the time
he casts his vote ; let him prove to the
judges of election that he lias paid
his poll and road tax of previous
assessment, by exhibiting a receipt for
the same, unless he is exempt under
statute, and in such case, let him prove
the same by a certificate from the
county court of the county in wliich he
resides. This will, in a manner, com
pel men to comply with the law and
prevent fraud and rascality. I heard
a man saj7- he had lived in Oregon over
twenty years and yet he had never
worked the roads on his own account.
This man was able-bodied .and was
always on hand at elections to cast his
All There is of it.
-The impeachment trial of Eel-
knap was begun in the Senate on the
17th. When the minutes of the
court of impeachment had been read
by Gorman, Secretary of the Senate,
and the return of the writ served
upon the ex-secretary having been
read, and the sergent-at-arms having
called upon him to answer, Carpenter,
of counsel for the ex-se.cretary, read
and filed a plea denying the jurisdic
tion of the Senate to try Belknap on
the articles of impeachment as he
was not an oflicer of the United States
at the time such articles were found
and presented to the Senate ; that he
has not since been, nor is now an
officer of the United States ; but was
and is & private citizen of the United
States and of the State of Iowa.
Lord on the part of the manageis
asked that time be allowed them,"
until Wednesday, the 19th, to con
sider what replication shall be made
to the plea of Belknap and it was so
ordered by the Senate, and the Sen-
ate as a Court of impeachment ad
journed. And that is all .there is of
it, at this time.
The green fruit dealers of New York i tow head,
have just balanced their accounts for j Tlie fishermen in Astoria, in conn
10 i r i ai j 4.1 a i.j cil have mutually agreed to bind
18o, and find that they are "out" thoms61v08 to l)e"governed In- the
about $700,000 on the Mediterranean i foregoi ng drifts, and it is expected
business alone. This loss was not due from boats Outside of the Society that
to the general depression, or a liiflit i
demand, as the imports last year ex
ceeded those for 3874. Put the per
centage of loss in transit was unu
sually great; and then the people of
Europe were willing to pay more than
Americans for their oranges and lem
ons. The value of the green fruit
imported at New York alone last year
reached 3,455,000, upon wliich 020,
072 in duty was paid to the govern
ment. This" business has attained such a
magnitude, and is of so peculiar a!
Aii... .-,. J7, ... 4- , ;
ciiaracter, that a tevr facts m rcmird
' . o-""
to lipvill be of interest. A large part I
or the choice fruit consumed in this
country is imported from the Mediter
ranean countries in fast sailing vessels
constructed on purpose for this trade.
In 1875 a total of 3G6,SI5,GG0 oranges
and lemons were received at New
York from that region, Notwith
standing the great precautions always
tfltfill to lYTf5Arv .1if Tvnif. in rrvnr1i
x m x
lion, the proportion which perishes at
sea is very serious. Of the entire
skoii s receipts 01 lemons, twelve per
a :i.,j .. a! ...i ! j.i l.
two per cent, of the oranges were con
demned on arrival. Yerv lanre nu m-
titles of choice grapes are also brought
from the Mediterranean region. The
. i -inr,- i i nn a- i
imports m jlo o reacnea oijzoz pac-
ages. These found a ready market in
all parts of the United States.
The West India fruit trade is also
assuming large proportions; but for
some reason it is even more risky than
the Mediterranean bussiness. The
imports of oranges at New York last
year from the southern islands aggre
gated 22,550,375, of which 40 per
cent, were ruined on the passage.
Some times whole cargoes are found
.to be entirely worthless. One steam
er load of 72,000 oranges from San
Ann's Bay was a total loss last season.
The quantity of banannas disposed of
annually in the United States may be
judged from the fact that 123 cargoes,
valued at 315,207, were imported at
New York in 1S75. Pine-apples are
also brought from the West Indies by
the shrp load, 97 cargoes have been
sold at New York during the past sea
son. The fruit business with sev
eral of the West India Islands is in
creasing rapidly, giving enrploymcnt
to quite a fleet of steamers.
Frurfc grown for the American mar
kets in either the West India Islands
or the Mediterranean .country must be
picked while green and hurried for
ward as rapidly :is possible. If it is
allowed to hang on the trees too long,
or is plucked too soon, the chances of.
its. spoiling before arrival are very
great. Should the vessel be unex
pectedly delayed b' accident or bois
terous weather, the risk of damage to
cargo is largely enhanced. To. have
the fruit arrive in good condition
every step must be taken at just the
jriSht lime Jllul in ie Proper way.
, Otherwise heavy loss is the result.
But the fruit-dealers usually charge
enough on the good fruit to make up
shrinkage and other loss.
