and the SwIn tret more exerclwe in

mile. In Hra.ll it is three and four

THE tF.DF.lUL ELECTION LAW.
The democratic malority In the
houe has dis-idisl to "push things"
on the repeal of the federal elections
law. Th-re Is no possible reason why
his law should le r'xntlel at all, un
less It is the d iiierute intention of
th democrats to miike easy the way
to fraud In the election of rcpresenta
lives in congress and of presidential
electors. Hut, even in that case there
Is no need of rushing a repeal bill
through at the extra se-slon, as there
are no elections in any state this fall
which the federal law would effect
The nvcraire democrat a; peart to
think there is something terrible in
the federal elections law. A refer
cm to tne sections oi me reviseii
statutes of the 1'nlted States relating
to congressional and presidential elec
tions would certainly dissipate any
These sections provide that when a
repreaentatlve in congress is to la1
elected In any city having more than
L'o.ooo inhabitants, two crsons may,
by application to the Judge of the
circuit court, secure the appointment
of smiervisors of election. Thesame
can lie done in any congressional dis
trict on iielition of ten ix-rsons, but
this Is seldom resorted to. These au
iM-rvisors have no powers except to
see that voters are not Intimidated
and to canvass the vote. It should
be remarked in passing that there are
to lie two su ei visors in each district,
and that they are required to be of
nuite out of the
marshal of a
on similar petition, to appoint
deputy marshals to preserve the peace
on election day, and see that the
rights of citizens at the jxills are not
interfered with. That is all there is
of this law, except the penalties pre
scribed for their violation.
The greatest objection that any
honest citizen can bring against this
law is that it has not proved strong
enough to make much impression on
Itourhou scoundrclism. It has sel
dom lieen used, except in New York
city, where it failed to check the tide
of Tammany's fraud. Every one
familiar with the inside history of the
presidential flection' of lSSl knows
that the electoral vote of the ulnte of
New York was given to Cleveland
by one of the boldest and most un
lushingfrauds in our annals. In certain
election districts, chielly in Brooklyn,
thousands of votes for Hutler were
counted for Cleveland, and thus James
O. Itlaiue was cheated out of the
presidency he had fairly won. Hutler
asserts, in his book, that he had proof
of this. The bitterness of the Tam
many crowd in the mctroolis against
"Johnny" Davenport Is liecause he
invoked this law to prevent a repeti
tion, in Ihhh, of the wimo scoundrel
ism, which was fully intended. Had
it lieen carried out, it would have
lieen an useless crime, as Cleveland
was elected without it.
The republicans of the house do
not expect to prevent the reeal of
this law. The tight they are making
Is to direct the attention of the coun
try to the motives of the democracy
in wiping it from the Matuto books.
The execution of that law has never
prevented a single legal voter from
casting his ballot as he desired, ant
having it counted as cast. No demo
crat can produce a single Instance
w herein it was or could have lieen
used us un Instrument to nullify the
vote of a single citizen. The debate
will draw Kipular attention to the
measure, and to the purposes behind
Who are the men who are leading
the democratic forces against it?

States will do well to devote Home at
tention to the progress of nffairs in
the house while the bill to reenl the
law is under consideration. It will
bring them to a realizing sense of the
fact that the democratic party Is an

DEMOCRATS FAVOR CORK! TTI0X.
A few day ago when Hie rules
were up for discussion, the republi-
cans of the house of representatives
argued strongly for u provision to
prevent filibustering, and the demo -
cratic majority ersitently opixiscd
it. Last wtfk the republicans were
tempted to resort to filibustering.
The majority were very anxious to
bring forward the Tucker bill, which
Is designed to sweep away every
thing iu the nature of federal super -
vision of elections. These laws have!
been on the statute book many years,
and have proven very useful lu the
detection and prevention and punish-
ment of fraud In New York and else
where. Hut attempts to extend
their operations everywhere, so as to
secure a free ballot and a fair count
In all parts of the union, rousts) the
strongest hostility in the south, and
it was made an Issue In the last cam
paign. Federal suiervision is s;xk-
en or liy democrats lu the house as
though it were designed to prevent
freedom of voting aud keep people
away from the polls, it would la-
ust as correct to say that the police
of New York city are designed to re
strict the freedom of its citizens and
prevent them from going uhoiit the
streets and transacting their busi
ness in a legitimate way. Of course
every Insly knows that the function
of the police is to preserve the peace
and to secure to every law-abiding
citizen his rights. It is only tin
guilty who are afraid of the police and
would sunprcH them. There is no
constitutional reason why federal su
per vision should not la' extended to
federal elections, ftnd there are most
excellent reasons why it should lie,
In New York city the corrupt demo
cratic machine removed the safe
guards of pure election last yir,
anil would have had everything their
own way except for the federal su
iH'rvlslon that was exercised. When
this is removed, according to the
will of the present democratic con-
irress. there win ne practically no
way of guarding against extensive
frauds. It is certainly not in the in
terest of either the purity or the
freedom of the ballot box that the
democrats in congress are now pro
poning rcjieal. New, York Indcpen-
Saved by her lilhl.
Such love is the power unto salva
tion, Loth for the individual and for
society. A mother was arraigned in
a police court charged with drunken
ness. She was guilty. The Judge
tlned her fi, In default of which she
was to go to the Island. A little
ragged urchin stood by and heard
the sentence. He cried to the Judge,
"Wait a minute, Judge, I'll get the
money." Ho rushed out to all the
places of business where he was
known. He secured from all his
friends all tho money possible. He
told them of his mother's difficulty;
that she was to go to the Island. He
secured t2A. He camo back and
poured the money out on the judge's
csk and then said bravely to him,
It's all I could get now, Judge, but
' you will send me to tho island for
her, I'm not so large, but I'll slay
longer and work out the balance."
Tho HXr woman, overwhelmed by
this evidence of her child's devotion,

Oreg-ou'n Dig Apples.
Dr. J. 11. Cardwell, president of the
State Horticultural Society has re
turned from Chicago, where he went
to sh the great fair, and esiecially to
visit the horticultural display and
stsj for himself how Oregon's pro
ducts compared with those from
other states. He is well pleased
with the showing made, and says
Oregon is ahead, and will certainly
receive tho prize for the liest prunes
and plums. Some very fine fruit
ha Ixs'n sent on of late, and he is
very desirons that fruit-growers
throughout the state shall send in
the best specimens they can find to le
forwarded. There was a great ileal
of good naturod rivalry among ex
hibitors as to who should exhibit the
largest apple. Idaho, Kansas and
Arkansas led, the latter standing at
the head with a twenty-ounce apple,
measuring fifteen and one-half inches
in circumference. Of course Dr.
Cardwell was certain that Oregon
could beat that, and has forwarded a
numlier of flftis-n and one-half Inch
apples, and tine measuring sixteen
inches around. Dr. Iewi. who '!
in charge of the Oregon exhibit, was
so certain that he could get a bigger
apple than the largest shown that he
had a big rooster prepared carrying a
sbwmer in his bill, tin w hich is in
scribed, "Come down Arkansas."
Dr. Cardwell say he hasst'en Oregon
apples weighing thirty-eight ounces,
and he is in hope to be ablo to tind
one measuring twenty Inches around.
Every orchardist in the state should

apple and send forwnrd the lt he
THE EXT CICLONE.
Under tlii luMiling the San Fran
ciseo Bulletin dicus the political
' situation at Iciiirth. Among other
thing it ay :
j '-It looks as if the next political
cycbn c would strike with great force
' the present administration. The
warnings at present are mostly from
the democratic side. The country
is already expressing its disappoint
incut with an emoliasis that cannot
1 le mistaken. The Cleveland
ministration tisik office with
promise to give the country a greater
f degree of pros rily. In tlx month
Jhe securities of the country had
depreciated more than HIHI,(HMI,(HM(,
The customs receipts lias fallen off
many millions. The tidal wave
that carried the present adminis
tration into power has receded.
It has 1c It It hard aground. This
change is still going on. If demo
cratic organs turn about and attack
the party in power, what then? It
cannot be expectisl that rcpuhliiims
will t n-ii to its support.
"For six months the party in
power has been u trial. During
the critical period it lias done nothing
except to create distrust. It has a
majority iu both house and a demo
cratic president. If tliere Is any
virtue in these facts they ought to
give coiilldeiice to the country. Hut
it has followed that as soon as this
clear majority was ascertained conll
dciicc began to decline. Meanwhile
it is keeping up It assaults on repub
lican principles everywhere.
"It is worth while to contrast the
attitndt' of the republicans toward
the present administration with that
of the democrats toward that of the
last republican administration.
There is a radical difference. The
Harrison administration came in
when all the resources of tho demo
cratic party In congress were em
ployed to nullify every .. measure
brought forward by the republicans.
The aim was to harras and discredit
tht party in power. The opposition
was factious beyond precedent. The
purpose was to kill every measure
brought forward by filibustering
tactics. This tierce party war has
passed Into history. Now the party
in power Is asking for the tolerance
and 'support 'that it refused to the
republican administration. The at
titude of tho party out of power is
quite different. It is not eonspring
to wreck the administration, and
does not employ any Illibiistering
tactics to cmbarras't it. It has even
gone so far on one or two occasions
as to help pull it out of the mire.
1'he administration will need to I
coutimiously call on the republicans
to help save it from the vagaries of
its own platform. While it is
nomindly committed to free trade it
would go down in a political cyclone
if it were to carry such a measure
into full effect. Democratic organs
art- today asking for a repudiation of
the Chicago platform to the extent
that particular industries In I heir
several states must have protection.
There is not, for instance, a demo
cratic organ of any Influence in
California that has taken ground
against the protection of fruit, wool,
sugar aud other great local Industrial
interests. Those exceptional cases
are occuring all over the country.
What doe it mean? Just this, that
while the party is bound by its own
platform it has no confidence in it.
Free trade, as it has lcen formulated,
could not lie carried out today with
out disrupting the party.
"The country Is Itcginning to
look once more to the republicans to
save it Irom the worst results or
democratic rule. The latter has
tarn looking in the same direction
for similar help. And this change of
attitude lias lecii brought about in a
little more than six mouths. In
this light it is not difficult to forecast
the changes that will occur in the
next three year.."
