THE FORTY-NINTH CONGRESS.
Ox Monday, December 7th, be
gins the first session of the XLTX
congress of the United States.
The election of John H. Mitchell
from this state, makes the political
complexion of the senate 41 Re
publicans and 35 Demecrats: a
Republican majority of six in the
senate. In the house there will be
140 Republicans, (last session,
119,) 182 Democrats, (last session,
200,) 1 greenbacker, 1 fusionist,
andl vacancy. The Democrats
hare a large working majority in
the house, and will be likely to
keep it during this administra
tion. The Republicans have a
small working majority in the
senate and' are likely to lose it, ex
cept by good luck. Mahone, of
Virginia, will be succeeded by a
Democrat, which will make but
four Republican majerity: Haw
ley, of Connecticut is likely to be
succeeded by a Democrat, which
would make but two majority, and
in a body composed of a good
many old men, of membeYs many
of whom hail from states governed
by Democratic executives, it
would appear as though Republi
can supremacy in the senate in the
second session of the coming
congress, were a matter of con
For the first time in twenty-five
years congress will listen to a
message from a Democratic pres
ident. Should his third message
in 1887 be read to a congress
composed of a majority of mem
bers of his own political belief,
the occasion would illustrate the
completion of a political revolution
unparalleled in history.
Mr. Sparks, commissioner of
the general land office, has recently
received reports from special
agents whioh convince him that
five-sixths of the homestead entries
in Dakota and throughout that re
gion are fraudulent. He has re
ceived the advertisements of land
agents who offer to obtain land for
ex-Union soldiers or sailors, with
out the necessity of residing upon
the land, which the law requires,
and Mr. Sparks has been provided
with copies of railroad tickets to
whioh certificates of homestead en- ',
tries, under the timber culture act,
are attached as gratuitous coupons
to the purchasers of the railroad
tickets. Mr. Sparks says that
while in individual instances the
result of his action may cause
hardship, he shall decline to certi
fy the vast mass of pending ap
plications for patents to the presi
dent for signature until he is con
vinced that the entries are not of
& fraudulent character, and that
he will ask congress for force
enough to make these investiara
There are plenty of intelligent
women in this state who under
stand tue principles ot good gov
ernment and the necessity of offi
cial rectitude and executive ability
sufficiently to kniv uhich candi
date they prefer, mid to vote intel
ligently, and we would nor. object
to have them try the '.periment
of taking a part in an election.
We believe the state might fall
into worse hands than women
voters. The assertion that ignor
ant women would vote amounts to
little. So do ignorant men; and
moreover, few except intelligent
women would attempt it, in the
present condition of things. Ig
norant women will hesitate be
cause they are ignorant; and weak
women are indifferent. It is only
thinking women who have a clear
idea of the issues, and feel suffi
cient interest in them to form an

A DANIEL COME TO JUDGEMENT.
If this is a libel and you can
make it so appear, you will be
elected by acclamation, and the
Oregonian will be discredited, dis
graced, ruined. You will rise at
once, and justly, to the very sum
mit of public esteem, and they
whom you call your "enemies" will
trouble you no more forever. Or
Last January The Astorian
took the stand that as Hon. Sol.
Hirsch had a majority of Repub
lican votes, that was equivalent to
a caucus nomination, and for that
reason he should be elected. Last
"Wednesday that gentleman, who
is a thorough Republican and an
experienced politician, took pre
cisely the same ground. When
he found that Mitchell had 28
votes, a majority of the 52 Repub
lican legislators, he changed his
vote to Mitchell, saying that he
felt it his duty to do himself what
he had claimed to be the duty of
others in a similar situation. And
in this he was correct.
Leaving everything else out of
the question, the moment that
Mitchell got 28 votes, a majority
of the Republican vote, an election
was his due and he only got jnst
what he was entitled to.
The Republicans who voted for
Mitchell just equaled in number
the entire number of Democrats
in the legislature.
