THE VS1TED STATES SENATE.
The reelection of John A. Logan
to the senate of the United States di
rects national attention to the only
existing vacancy that from this state.
If Governor Moody is wise he will
appoint and not trust to the proba
bilities of an extra session. There
will be pereral senators in the next
congress who will receive their ap
pointments from the governors of
their states. This results from the
practice coming into vogue of a new
administration selecting cabinet offi
cers from the senate, and also from
a failure on the part of one legislat
ure to elect and the probability that
another legislature will be no more
successful. The .Republicans won
two senators in the presidential elec-J
tion in which they were defeated
one in California and one in Oregon.
The senator who wiir derive his title
from the governor will sit through
out nearly the whole of the forty
ninth congress. The legislature of
Oregon will not again meet until the
first Monday in January, 18S7. The
forty-ninth congress will expire by
limitation cf law on the 4th of March
The senate of the forty-ninth con
gress will contain forty-two Republi
can senators, including the two from
Virginia, against forty in the last
congress. The Democrats had pre
cisely the same strength in the sen
ate of the forty-sixth congress. That
body stood forty-two Democrats,
thirty-three Republicans and one In
dependentDavid Davis. It was the
only senate since the war in which
the Democrats had control.
The Republicans since the date
stated have been gaining on
the Democrats. The Grim Sergeant
often also plays a part in remod
eling the senate. When he beckons
one of these statesmen away, the gov
ernor of his state fills the vacancy.
Two years ago that dread personage
was on the side of the Republicans,
for the governors of nearly all the
northern states were Republican,
while in the south they were Demo
crats. The preponderance was, there
fore,.on the side of the Republicans,
in case a Democratic northern sena
tor died. This time the Democrats
have possession of several northern
states. For instance, if a senator
from California or New York should
die the governor woul appoint a
Democrat fo the vacancy.
The senators from the north who
will derive their titles from the gov
ernors of their states, will be rein--
forced, probably, by three senators
from the south of like origin. Three
senators of the present congress have
entered the cabinet of President
Cleveland. They are Bayard of Del
aware, Garland of Arkansas and
Lamar of Mississippi It is to be
regarded as a coincidence that Cleve
land takes three of his cabinet from
the senate, as did also the late Presi
dent Garfield. Seats at the council
board of the president seem to be the
only promotion now open to senators.
Though often candidates for the
presidency they are seldom preferred
Garfield was a senator, but he had
the curious fortune of being at one
and the same time a representative, a
senator and a candidate for the pres
idency. He never sat as a senator.
James Buchanan was the last presi
dent who had been in the senate pre
viously. It is something creditable to the
governors who, by the mischances
and arrangements, to which reference
is above made, have acceded to the
power of -'their legislatures in the
matter of '"making a selection for
these coveted places seats in the
senate of the United States that
none of them so far have tried to ap
propriate the windfall themselves,
though it must be said that the end
is not yet. But the thing is as easy
as rolling off a log. All that is neces
sary is for Ihe governor to resign on
the understanding that his heir-apparent,
who In some states is lieutenant-governor
and in others is secre
tary of stated shall appoint him to the
vacant place. There have been many
sharp corners-turned in politics. It
is perhaps a subject for marvel tliat
no attempt of that kind has so far
been made in these cases, especially
when the attractive character of the
prize is considered'. Next to the
presidency, a seat in the senate is
most desired by those who "have a
yearning for public life. Eor a really
able man the senate, .ig, perhaps, the
preferable place. The president is
the great 'High, -Almonen He has
immense stores of nice things to give
away. Btrfrfrratiffa thankless busi
ness, as all presidents know. The
senator who has the ability and the
talent can mold Jthe -policy of. the gov
ernment and make history. If Web
ster had achieved his later ambition
his fame as a president would most
probably not have equaled his fame
as a senator, for there would not in
the former place have been the same
chance for the display of his dazzling
Ik no country in the world, says
the Philadelphia Call, do the people
average so high in the cost of living.
It proves that our average population
lives well And this is an important
fact. Good living promotes health,
and is a sign of intelligence. "Were
onr people so poverty stricken as to
be compelled to live poorly, the effect
on the nation would be bad. "Wheth
er we advance in the better elements
of civilization or retrograde depends
on our living. It is also a test of our
earnings. This nation has been
steadily liquidating debt since 1865.
Yet it has lived including luxuries, nt
an annual expense of not less than
510,000,000,000, and has put down in
business and trading plants nt least
as much more; $20,000,000,000 a year
seems a large sumT It means an
earning capacity of $400 a year for
overj' man, woman and child in the
country. Suppose that but 10,000,000
of these are producers, it Tales each
active worker as producing $2,000
a year of actual wealth.

It was about 3 o'clock Thursday morn
ing when Knut Clausen and Louis Etner
sen, two stalwart young fishermen j
started out on a fiahinfi-crniaato tlje Far
allones in Clausen's new yawl. Out Jn
the stream they fiaw ths tn 'Xepttne
Koing out, and. bulling her wero taken in
tow. They reached-the island safely.nrd
had n successful dav weighing dowattft
the little craft witu'ully J5i rxmndii'cf
fish by sundown when they st3rtectfor
home, -heading the yawl "for the Golden
Gate. A strong breeze had been blowing
more or less all d;iy, .bat now it had
grown to a pale, covering tfaa seldom
smooth water outside with, big, froth
capped waves, and sending, their" Httjo
craf tscudding and rocking dlong. Sdofi?:
when the bar line va3 reached, fhoral&
had increased, the waves 'bad rown
larger and all over tho-bar cqolclbe seen
ngly cros3-seas ot Irnge breakers. The
fishermen crouched low in" their cra't ai
she dashed brdvely through the waves.
It wns about dark, when suddenly with
out warnintr. an "immense sea "washed
over them, capsizing the boat ana send
ing the fishermen struggling into tue
"It was an- r.wf ol wave,, bigger than
any just as if it had come on purpose,
turning ns over," said Clausen, in telling
his story this morning. -Tcey c'ambsred
up the slippery bottom of the boat and
clung to the keel. The big waves dashed
over them every moment and drenched
them through and through, and wind
and water soon chilled them stiff. They
drifted slowly to the south of the Cliff
House, antL within, about a-half a milo of
shore near the life-saving station. They
shouted and shouted till hoarse, but no
response came. Both wero so benumbed
they could hardly speak. Slowly the tide
took them near the Seal .Rocks. It was
then about midnight. Off a little way.,
so near it seemed tJ them they saw the
outline of a sailing vessel coins in the
Gate. Again, with all'thelr f net-failing
strength they called and scouted tor nelp,
but in vain, for tho outline was soon lost
"Knut,"-said Emergen, 'I feel the
cramps coming; I can't -hold on much
longer." . . ...
"Hold tight a little longer, Louis,1' said
Clausen, encouragingly, as ho saw they
wero approaching the shore by tho south
Emcrsen made no reply. In a minute
ho put his head down close -f o the keel,
then his hands let go and ho' was gone.
His companion did not sec him again.
Clausen felt that ho could not bold on
much longer either, he was so cold and
stiff, when suddenly he was thrown vio
lently off tho boat and then he felt sand
under him. A huge breaker had tossed
him ashore near Mile Hock. Before he
could stand another sent him in still fur
ther. With difficulty ho stood upon hia
feet. The boat was near him, but he
could make no effort -Jo,, save. Jit. lie
could not move his Hands. It was then
about 1 o'clock. He stumbled along over
the beach and up on to tho sandhill?;
The exercise soon made him feel better.
Ho kept onirLdarknfcsa. meeting rib '"one
and, seeing few houses? He auxmbted,
slipped and fell occasionally, but plod
ded on until about daybreak he reached
the outer line of Ulay street, it was 7
o'clock when he Tapped at the -door 4 of
his lodgings atS3 Clay street. ' He was
nearly ready to drip with 4 fatigue. His
clothes were still wet and covered with
sand and dirt. He took some hurried re
freshments and' went to bed. He said
ho felt as though he wanted to sleep for
a year.. He is only -about twenty-five,
with the" typical rnddy, florid countenance
of the Norwegian. Entarsen was an old
"shipmate, aDaneapout thirty years old
and single. Me was formerly m the
navy and is said to have been a steady
young man with many commendable
qualities. S. F. Bulletin, 1G.

that brought hard times to our doors,

QUESTION OF THE HOUR
is, how can we avert a geueral bust up'?
It is evident that something must be
done, and done soon. Simple talk.wont
ncip. we must not indulge in luxuries,
w e must economise and be careful.
If you are inaeed of anything, inquire
for prices; don't trade in a certain store
because Mr. Jones or 3Irs. Brown do,
think for your self. Xow, for inslance
if we offer

a certain article we know that np other

goods are from 25 to 35 per cent cheaper

IJaving opened a general Iry Roods
and Clothing store only recently, we
bought our stock at greatly reduced fig
ures, and we bought for cash besides.
which means a further rednctiou of G
per cent, so that we are ahead alto
gether as far as prices are concerned.
At any rate we invite the reasoning
