ASTORIA- OREGON :
THURSDAY JULY 7. 1881
Sol Out of Danger.
The Oregonian 1ms kept readers
thoroughly informed concerning
the condition of President Garfield
since the National horror, and The
AsToniAK, as well as other Pacific
Nortlnvcst journals, acknowledge
many favors from the Oregonian in
this respect. There is still a .hope
that the life of the President ma'
be spared, but reports are conflict
ing and we do not feel assured, as
we wish to feel, upon this point.
The attending physicians, it seems
are not assured, and disagree as to
the piobabl"e icsult. Bulletins last
evening furnish encouiagement to
hone for his iccoverv. Let us not
Oregonians should not growl,
when the Salem assembly adjourns
to attend a horse race. The pi e
cedent has been followed in Eng
laud. Tt seems odd to hear that
so grave and dignified a body as
the English house of parliament
should adjourn to attmd a horse
race but so it ib. ( )ccasionally in
this country some insignificant
board have been held up to ridi
cule by adjourning to go to a
eircus. "What, however, would be
the sentiment of the country should
the United States senate adjourn
to attend a horse race at Pimlico.
Every year, however, pailiament
adjourns to permit its members to
go to the Derby, and it is not long i
ago since they adjourned to attend
a prize fight. It would seem that
at a. time like the present, when j
the affairs of Ireland arc in such a
state of disorder and insurrection,
and when theie may be bloodshed
any day, that their first duty would
be to attend to the affairs of state;
but the men who hae seals in
parliament would as soon think of
doing without their meals for the
remainder of the session as staying
away from the Dei by. This is the
body, too, which adjourns to at
tend horse-race., and prize-fights,
that lefused to allow l'radlaugh to
take his seat for the sole reason
that he did not believe in (Jod!
The alarming increase notice
able in the number of suicides
seems to demand the attention of
christians and philanthropists. It
is not attributable to any general
distress or sudden calamity. In
many cases the causes seem ab
surdly insignificant. There is no
reason for supposing that plane
tary or physical influences predis
pose persons at this time to suicide,
and there is no general distress in
ducing it. There is less fear of
death than ever before, since there
is no longer general faith in the
'teinitj' of punishment after death,
and to this alone the greater
quency of suicides may perhaps be
attributed. True, those who teach
that there is no hell, or that pun-
ishment in it will be eternal, hold
that sin inevitably pioduces harm
ful consequences; but to the suffer
er from want, disappointment or
disease, his pains seem almost un
endurable, while those that may
come after death appear remote
and less poignant. The change of
faith, the doubt of future punish
ment, mav have led to manv eases
of suicide. Although depreciated
by all moralists as wrong and cow
ardly, but the mind distraught by
suffering or rejnoise heeds little
such suggestion-, when the fear of
hell is no longer felt.

We have been reading numer
ous predictions of astronomers,
etc., concerning the tremendous
disasters to occur, but which did
not; last month and in April, be
cause of the groupings of the
planets. Their predictions have
not been verified to any conspicu
ous extent. The grand cataclysm
which was to occur on Suuda,
the 19th tilt., scared more people
than it hurt; and while the planets
Xeptune, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter
and Mars on one side of the sun,
and our earth on the other, may
have produced new forms of mag
netism, people on this coast were
not seriously harmed. "Why don't
these seers ever predict from such
influences the sudden inbringing
of the millcnial age, when sin and
sorrow will be no more? Why
can't they ever imagine good and
not evil to result from conjunctions
of planets hundreds of millions of
rnutsliracat of Bribers.
The legislature of Pennsylvania
have "by recent act, decreed severe
penalties against those who giTe
or receive bribes or vote illegally.
An' candidate for office who is
convicted of bribing an elector, or
corruptly inflnencing his actions,
is liable to a fine of 300 and three
months' imprisonment. A similar
punishment is to be meted out to
the recipient of the bribe, to him
who is corruptly influenced, and to
the elector who offers for any valu
able consideration to dispose of
his vote or influence. He who
votes at a primary if he is not en
titled to vote at a general elec
tion, incurs a fine of two hundred
dollars and three mouths1 impris
onment. The elected delegate, or
any member of the executive com
mittee, judge or clerk of returning
board, who is proven guilt' of
any of the infractions of the pro
visions of this statute against
fraud, is subject to a fine of one
hundred dollars and three months'
imprisoment, and this penalty is
doubled on him who attempts to
tamper with or corrupt the offi
cers. The past developments at
llarrisburg justified the adoption
of stringent measures to purifyl
primaries and conventions, but it
is rather doubtful if the present
law will secure honest nominations.
Tt is aimed especially at flagrant
cases cf fraud and bribery; but it
is not retroactive, nor does it pro
vidi for the future suppression of
that adroit system of cheating so
well understood by those politicians
who control the primaries anil the
followers who obey the orders of
their chiefs. Shrewdness of man-
ipulatiou is not sufficiently guard
ed against, and crafty dealing is
as liable to superinduce a
count as specific brib
ery; yet it is only the latter
offense that is punishable. Cheat
ing within specified Hunts can
still be practiced with impunity as
much in politics as in ordinary
business relations. There are some
men who cannot be legislated into
practical honesty and truthfulness
either bv human or divine law.
Penalties have been prescribed in
England as well as the United
States for illegal voting and brib
ery at regular elections, but these
aie comparatively inoperative, by
reason of the difficulties attending
the investigation and proving the
guilt of the accused. The primary
election, which is the head that
directs subsequent issues in regard
to delegates and nominations, has
bsen virtually uncared for by pro
visory statutes and allowed to run
its own way without salutary re
straints until it got into disrepute,
and a compulsory reform is advis
able in Oregon as well as in Penn
sylvania, and other states too num
erous to mention.
A leading paper in Ohio com
plains that the public debt is get-
'ting paid off too fast. Objection
is made to unnecessarily burden-
fre-'ing the present generation, to do
ing uway with a safe investment
for trustees, guardians, adminis-
j tralors, etc., but this is the main ar-
gnment: The wealth of the coun
try is to-day estimated at $40,000,
000,000, and the population is
about 51,000,000. Twenty-five
years from now the population
will be 100,000,000, and the wealth
will be 15100,000,000,000. There
fore, does it not stand to reason
that the people twenty-five years
hence hould pay at least one
half the debt, as it stood in 1SC5,
say SI, .100,000? What sense is
theie in the present generation
paying off the debt, when the nest
will be more than doubly able to
do it?' All this may have more
or less force, but if there is one
thing that the people of this coun
try have repudiated, it is the doc
trin, current during the war, that
a "national debt is a national
Mail advices inform its that the
storm in the western states lias
been more disastrous than was at
first supposed, and that the loss of
life seems to have been consider
able, to say nothing of the great
damage done to property of every
description. Crops of every kind
have also suffered greatly, and in
some sections the wheat is ruined
and the corn badly damaged. This
has been a season of most peculiar
weather, and its eccentricities 4o
not seem to Lave been confined to
any one section, all parts of the
country having been afflicted in
one form or another.
