The contrast between the senate

It is telegraphed from Cairo that
Zobber Pasha has said he "will not
rest until he has killed General Gor

but it is probable, should they meet,
that some Egyptian undertaker -will
have a job.
The thirteen states of Arkansas,

with an aggregate population which

At the Chicago convention in 1880
Blaine received 9 votes from tho Ohio
delegation to 35 for Sherman. He
will take this time start in "with 30
and probably on the next ballot -will
have 46. He had 17 from New York
on the first ballot, and will now start
with 30; he had 23 from Pennsylvania
on the first vote, and will now get 47,
and probably 50 of the GO.
Ex-President Hayes is said to
have a more elaborate set of scrap
books, classified and indexed, than
any other public man in the coun
try. He began the collection of
scraps when he was a young lawyer
in Cincinnati "When ho was presi

stantly busy cutting and pasting
slips from tho newspapers.
At Point Barrow, Alaska, the recently-returned
United States ex

ground is frozen to a depth of nearly

May no living thing may be seen on
this land except the Innuit and his
dog, and an occasional stray rein
deer or white fox.
Hon. John Myers, in his speech
in this city on Saturday even
ing, talked about the need of big
appropriations for the lower Colum
bia river, and at Astoria lib spoke
similarly about appropriations for
the Columbia bar. It would bo a
mistake to repeat these things in
other parts of the state. The people
in other localities don t want any
thing done for the lower river or bar.
It will be no mistake to repeat his
speech all over the state, and Mr.
Herman will make a colossal mistake
if he doesn't make substantially the
same declaration here and elsewhere.
The people of eastern and western
Oregon are in earnest in their de
mand for "a free river," and the only
mistake made so far is the Oregon
fan's unwarranted assumption that
"the people in other localities' don't
want anything done for the lower
Columbia river or bar." This is
something with which "politics'' has
no concern. "We of western Oregon
are not going to look twice at the top
of a ticket to see whether the words
"Republican" or "Democratic" head
it, but will look well at tho names of
men for whom we are asked to vote,
and demand that these men place
themselves squarely on record as to
their intent regarding a question of
suoh. vital importance to our pros
perity. The party whip cannot be
craoked over the shoulders of Repub
licans of all men, for they at least are
supposed to do their own thinking,
and the sooner all concerned drop on
this littlfrfact the greater the surety
of patty triumph in June.
Captain Eomeyk, of the Fifth
infantry, predicts that the Indians
will be absorbed in the white race, by
intermarriage, within a very few gen
erations. Ho proposes to give them
land in severally, teach them how to
care for it, furnish them -with tools,
require them to obey the laws of
civilization, break up their tribal
relations, and make citizens of them
as soon as they are prepared for it.
All of which is doubtless feasible, in
time, but not without the raising of
a good man' scalps.
