NO NOON FOR OREGON.
TUESDAY .DECEMBER 22. 1S85
The Congressional JRccord con
tains the names o President
Cleveland's appointees thus far
ver 1,200 in number.
The officeholders in the city of
New York draw from the public
an aggregate of 23,000,000 a
year in salaries and fees.
After twelve days of arduous
labor congress adjourned yester
day to rest and recuperate. The
period of recuperation runs till
January 5, 1886.
Tiiougu Gladstone denies the
accuracy of the published state
ments regarding the Irish home
rule movement, still it is not de
nied that he has resolved on con
ceding the principle of home rule.
The conviction is universal among
the English of all parties that
Gladstone means to crown his
career by carrying i hrough Parlia
ment an Irish scheme satisfactory
If the wealthy and aristocratic
tories in the English parliament
are still alarmed at the possibility
that their dignity will suffer by
contact with the poor and plebeian
Parnellites, the' certainly will be
excused if they choose to adopt
the only remedy in sight. They
can take themselves and their dig
nity out of parliament to the seclu
sion and safety of private life.
The Parnellites have come to stay.
Or, better still, perhaps, the Eng
lish aristocrats can get rid of the
annoying Irish by giving thorn a
parliament of their own.
There are some inconsistencies
in the new registery law. For
instance, says the Bedrock Demo
crat at Parker's in this county,
they have been voting the straight
Democratic ticket, and there has
not been a Republican in the pre
cinct to vote for some time. How
will the count' court appoint
judges belonging to different po
litical parties when there is but
one party represented by the legal
voters in the precinct? Again,
should one of the county commis
sioners of this county be in favor
of women suffrage and appoint a '
man of the same opinion as judge,
and the other two commissioners (
appoint Democrats, who would i
represent the Republicans? Or,
if the judge in favor of women
suffrage should be in reality a
Democrat, and a suffragist only
to obtain the position, then the
entire board would be Democratic,
A law similar to this was passed
in Ohio and declared unconstitu
tional, because of its prescribing
that the judges should not be of
the same political belief.
Represextati ye Paysox, of
Illinois, says that settlers are need
lessly alarmed on account of the
recent decision of the supreme
court that technically the tities of
railroad lands which have been
sold by railroad companies to set
tlers, but have not yet been pat
ented, still rest in the diked
States. The decision has been
ctnstrued to mean that settlers
who have so purchased have no
valid title to their lands, and may
be deprived of them at any time.
This is not the case; the title that
the government holds to lands by
this decision is that the lands are
to be sold to secure the cost of
survey, and may be acquired at
any time by settlers by paying for
the survey of their lands. The
railroad companies will then have
to make good the cost to them.
The court suggested that a bill
might be passed by congress for
feiting lands not patented within
the time stated after the passage
of the act. Payson is going to in
troduce a bill in the house which
was offered by him last year and-
pasaed, but failed in the senate
through amendments. This pro
vides for forfeiture of all lands
upon which the cost of survey has
not been paid within sixty days
after holders have received notice.
It would have been a happy day for
Oregon if Judge Dawne, on the first
day after setting foot on Alaskan
soil had accidentally fallen into a deep
crevasse and become as rigid as the
ice encircling him; a happy day, I
repeat, if thereby liis private record
could have been so concealed as not
have been heralded, as it has, from
sea to sea. The injury inflioted up
on Oregon by the Dawne case, dating
from its very inception, is greater, I
think, than Oregoniana are generally
aware of. It is much as an acquaint
ance said to mo yesterday: "Your
state has seen its Dawne; it has also
seen its twilight, minus the enstomary
From an authority so high that
there can be but little, if any. donbt
about the statement mauo be
ine a correct one, I Jearn how
Mr, Cleveland received the some
what widely published letter, to
which he sent the still more widely
published reply. Jbirst it may as
well be admitted that the first letter
protesting against the appointment
of Dawne was sent by Mr. A. Bush,
of Salem. When the lettor was de
livered to the president he was sit
ting at his desk and in his shirt
sleeves a not uncommon state for
him to be in during the summer sea
son. Mr. Cleveland took the
letter; he read it; he read it
again; he began to boil with indigna
tion. He arose and stepped to the
desk of his secretary. "Write, write
as I dictate," he said. And while the
secretary was penciling his words the
president, with knit brows, flashing
eyes and clenched nsts, strode up ana
down the room. I am told that sel
dom has he become so enraged. It
was the principle involved. A man
recommending an applicant for oflice
and, after the applicant had been ap
pointed, sharply protesting against
the appointment as a national dis
grace and ruinous to the Democracy
of his state! The letter written it
was mailed, hot from the pen. Al
though dictated in excitement, the
president has never regretted his ac
tion. He meant it uot only as a
stinging reproof to the Democracy of
Oregon, but also n warning to the
Democracy of the nation. His ac
tions, however, did not stop here.
He had been duped. When Dawne's
recall had been decided on, the presi
dent resolved that at least the next
appointee for that position should
not come from Oregon. From what
I can gather it would have been as
easy to have diverted from its chan
nel the Columbia river as to have
changed the president from his
course. He emphatically stated that
the appointment should not be given
to Oregon, and especially Salem,
notwithstanding the fact that there
were two or three apparently efficient
men applying for the position.
