Advancements made on Consignments No Cliarsres for Storage of Goods iUll m i fl I B ijfl$TETTK CELEBRATED Q A V 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 liiai 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 Republican. 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 Mr. Johnson. 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.

E, Dement already statetl, to be by states Inai is to say, each state will lnve fie vote, determined hv the majority of TI3IRER ItAILROAD:?. 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.
