CELEBRATED Q A
THE TROUBLED TOOL OF POLITICS
Possibilities of the Eiertoir.1 CnPi-re.
If no candidate for the presidency
should receive a majorit of the elec
toral college, or 201 voles, the elec
tion of president will ! thrown into
the present hones of represeiilalives.
There the vote is, as several lltr.es
ils delegation, and a majority of
states, or twenty votes, is necessary
to a choice. The Democrats Lave a
majority of the delegations iu l;en
ty-two state ia the present hone;
the Eepublicans have a majority iu
fifteen states: and one state, Florida,
is effaced by reason of the fact that
its delegation stands one Hepnblieau
to one Democrat. On the face, there
fore, if the election should be thrown
into house, Cleveland will be chosen
president The house iu that case
would have to make its selection
from the three highest on the list,
who are quite certain to be Blaine,
Cleveland aDd Butler.
The ultimate facts of the preseut
campaign are, that there aro running
two Protectionist candidates and one
Free Trade candidate. Blaiue is a
Republican Protectionist; Butler is a
Democratic Protectionist, and Cleve
land is a Free Trader. The interests
of the first two candidates are iden
tical on the main proposition,. If
Butler and those who support him
are sincere they would prefer the
election of Blaine to that of Cleve
land. But on the face, throwing the
election into the house, would bo
simply playing into the hands of
their real opponents. The New York
Sun says that the apparent Demo
cratic majority in the house, if the
election should go there, can be
changed. Bnt it has not gone into
any particulars except to state that
in several delegations the majority if
very thin. It is true that if political
treachery is to be the rule, no change
is too startling to be effected.
But we are inclined to discredit any
speculation of that kind in advance.
There are some possible, but not alto
gether probable changes. If one
Democratic congressman should go
over to the Republicans iu Connecti
cut, that state which is now Demo
cratic would be effaced, because its
vote would be a lie. A like change
in Maryland would produce an ex
actly similar result West Virginia
could be manipulated in the same
way. Thatjwould defeat Cleveland
in the house, but it would not elect
Blaine or Butler. If no other facts
are furnished by the Sun, it is cer
tainly open to the charge of disin
genuousness. It is apparent from
what is above set forth, if that jour
nal cannot throw more light on the
subject, that when it is making war on
Cleveland it is really helping him to
an election, or when it espouses the
cause of Butler, it has some other can
didate in view, but not Blaiue. The
drift of practical politics just now in
Michigan is quite sufficient to estab
lish the first-mentioned proposition.
In that state the Butler men have
coalesced with the Cleveland men, on
the basis that Cleveland is to get
seven electoral votes and Butler six,
if successful. But Blaine ought to
and will probably have the whole
thirteen votes, for Michigan is a re
liable Republican state. Butler is
therefore not helping 31aine in Mich
igan. On the contrary his followers
are trying to give Cleveland seven
votes in a stato heretofore strongly
But if the house should fail to elect
we would enter upon what might be
called an unexplored sea. In the first
place it must be noted that a failure
of the electoral college to choose a
president, does not necessarily imply
a failure to elect a vice-president
In a popular election the citizen can
not separate the president from the
vice-president The two are political
Siamese twins. The ligature which
binds them cannot be severed. But
it is different with the electoral col
leges. They vote, in distinct ballots,
for president and vice-president. It
might happen that a candidate for
vice-president should receive a ma
jority, or 201, while the head of the
ticket did not, though that turn
could not well be given to the contest
without political treachery. As a
matter of fact, no vice-president was
chosen in the election of 1836. "While
Martin Van Bureu had 170 electoral
votes, R. M. Johnson, who ran on the
same ticket with for vice-president,
received only 147 votes. The sen
ate, however, subsequently elected
It might then happen that while no
candidate for the presidency should
receive a majority of the electoral
colleges, some vice-president might
In the present contest that vice-president
would either be Logan, Hen
dricks or West If any one of these
gentlemen should have a majority of
the electoral college and the House
should fail to elect before the 4th of
March, he would become President
of tne United State3. But if there
should be a failure in the electoral
colleges to elect a vice-president n.q
well as presiscnt, and if the House
should likewise fail, the presidentro
tern, of the Senate would become
President of the United States. In
that case Senator Edmunds of Ver
mont would most likely be the man.
It will be readily admitted that there
is too mucu political cut-throat
eucher in all this. It would not be
an easy matter to determine how the
great principles for which the people
are contending would come out of
this intricate mechanism. A free
trader, a corporation or some other
undesirable man, might pass to the
front when the vast majority of the
people wanted a statesman of the
very opposite stripe.
Death In Life.
For ten long years Mr. Francis
Mann, Hoddle street and Simpson's
road, Melbourne, Australra, says, he
suffered with rheumatic gout until
he tried St Jacobs Oil, the wonder
ful pain-reliever, which cured him.

The possessors of capital, although
argus eyed in their search for gain,
are often blind to facts which the im
pecunious and those who are in
moderate circumstances are quick to
perceive. Moneyed corporations are
constantly beiug organized for bank
in '-r, insurance and other purposes,
which are only speculative and of no
public benefit whatever. While these
questionable undertakings are being
thrust upon the attention of the peo
ple, and all manner of misrepresenta
tion icoorted to for the purpose of in
veigling the unwary into their meshes,
many opportunities for profitable and
honest investment of money await to
respond to the invigorating touch of
legitimate enterprise. The construc
tion of narrow guage railroads from
navigable waters, or railroads con
necting with the seaboard, into the
hearts of the great forests of the
state is a work that now awaits re
munerative investment. Such roads
could be built, on easy grades, up
both forks of the Santiam river, from
this valley into inexhaustable forests
of as fine" timber as ever grew on this
coast. The McKinsey fork of the
Willamette affords the same oppor
tunities on a larger scale. Both forks
of tho Coquille and Coos river course
through vast sections of timber whei
the sound of the axe was never heard,
which for variety and excellence is un
equaled on the globe. Gedar, spruce,
hemlock, maple, myrtle, live oak and
every variety of fir grow to tho most
enormous size. The finest maple ever
found in any country, much of which
is of the quality known as ''birds-eye
maple," grows there more abundant
than anywhere on the shores of the
Pacific." It is no unusual thing to
find maple trees on the Coquille six
feet in diameter, with limbless trunks
of from forty to sixty feet in length.
The myrtle, which is coming into
use in the manufacture of fur
niture, attains a size nowhere
else known. The timber often
stands so thick along narrow
bottoms, near the water courses
that it is difficult to pass through on
horseback, where there is no under
growth to obstruct the way. It is a
well known fact that the limber most
convenient to the points from which
lumber can be shipped along this
coast is rapidly becoming exhausted
while the demand for lumber, in all
parts of the world, is on the increase.
Tho shipments of lnmber from Puget
Sound, the Columbia river and Coos
bay, has been greater during the past
year than ever before within a like
period. The market widens ami the
demand increases, and the lumbermen
are compelled to go deeper into the
mountains for suitable timber. The
ox team and the bob-sled are rapidly
becomiug obsolete and a new method
must be resorted to for the purpose
of conveying timber from where the
trees arc fallen, to themills-
The firm of Wediler & Ordway, of
Portland have at this time a narrow
guage railroad in op'eration from Oak
Point, on the Columbia river, leading
back into one of the finest forests in
Washington territory- Ten miles
above the Brock log railway is also
in operation. The Columbia River
Lumber Company are constructing a
road from Bugby's Hole on the Ore
gon side of the Columbia river, twenty-seven
miles above Astoria into an
excellent timbered district This is
a corporation organized under the
laws of New Jersey. Hamilton Diss
ton of that state, is president, and A.
P. Akeuy, manager. That these en
terprises will be of lasting profit to
the proprietors, .and a permanent
benefit to the state is a fact which
has been abnndantly demonstrated.
In most places where the finest for
ests are found, minerals exist which
promise, when the mines are develop
ed, to supply ore for transportation
which would give additional work to
railroad tracks psnotrating to those
localities. This is especially true re
specting the Santiam region and the
McKinzie fork of the Willamette
which flows down from the neigh
borhood of the Bohemia mining dis
trict Some practioal man of means
will realize the feasability of the en
terprises above suggested and act
upon ii. Salem Talk.
