An Ekctioa law. j
Considerable inquiry la being made
regarding registration requisites, to en
title suffrage at the presidential election
to be held November 8.
The most perplexing question with
tbe voter is whether or not he is entitled
to vote outside tbo precinct, in wbicb
he waa registered, prior to May 15, tbe
day registration closed. In other words,
if be Is registered in one precinct and
subsequently moves to another, will he
have to re-register? Following is sec
tion 16 of the law passed in 1899 provid
ing Inr registration of electors, etc: '
"If it appears the elector fa not regis
tered in the precinct in which he applies
lo vote, the elector ' in any case, as of
course, shall be considered challenged,
and shall be required to subscribe and
swear or affirm to the blank "A," pre
scribed by section 3 of this act, filled
onl according to the facta, and in ad
dition thereto be ajiall be required to
procure six freeholders of the county lo
take and subscribe to the second oath.
as specified in said blank "A" ot section
S of this act, and tho same shall be con
sidered by tbe judges and forthwith
decided and after noting thereon with
ink whether the elector is allowed to
vote or not, and if allowed (o vote tbe
pollbook p umber ot the elector, they
(ball file the same. Unless the elector
in every such case so establishes his
right to rote in tbe precinct, and to the
judges, bis vote shall not be received.
In carrying out the provisions of this
act, tbe judges of election, or either of
them, are hereby authorised to adminis
ter and .certify nalhs, and to issue
subpoenas to require tbe attendance of
witnesses before them.
' Thus it will be seen that the voter
wbo votes outside the precinct, where
he registeted prior to May 15, will coin
cide with the person who has not
registered, and bis vote will not have
to be sworn in by the aid of six attesting

TEN AGES OF WOMEN.

be reckoned a composed of multiple
of seven. The first seven year are In

third seven girlhood, the fourth seven
bring a fully developed womanhood.
From m to 35 the fifth seven might
be called ths Infancy of age, fur in
those year one learns to exercise the
faculties and perceptions that have
been develoed in the previous groups.
I'p to the age of 42 the lesson go on.
Character 1 being matured and fixed,

After that few changesare made in the
real person. Slight variatlonsand mod
ification of opinion there may be, but
nothing d--p or vital ia likely to trans
form the life.
The common phraaes, "a confirmed
old bachelor," and "a confirmed old
maid," applied to unmarried men and
women over 40 are tacit admission of
that fact. Intimating that mental and
physical habits are ao strongly rooted
that the adaptability of earlier yeara
ha ceased to exist, and the person 1
lucpable of adjustment to a new en

' (From Our Regnlar Correspondent).
Washington, Oct. 15, 1900.
That the administration regards the
crisis, ao far as American interests are
concerned, a past, lu China, or tbat it
ia anxious to make the power think it
duet, is shown by the withdrawal of
American warship from northern Chin
ese waters, In addition to the withdrawal
of our troop from China. This indi
cates that the purpose for which tbe
recent ordering of the battleship Ken
tucky and the cruiser Albany lo Chinese
waters was done has been accomplished.
The only two American warships now
remaining in northern Chinese waters
are the New Orleana, at Takn, and tbe
Monocasy in the Pel Ho. Those two
will remain all the winter. Admiral
Remy, aboard the. flagship Brooklyn,
is on his wsy -.to Manila, which
ia the headquarters of the Asiatic
squadron of ; which ha it commnnder.
He will be In easy reach of China If be
is needed. Hon.. John U. Carlisle, who
was Mr. Cleveland's secretary of tbe
treasury, said whlht in Washington, a
day or two ago, that he did not intend
to vote (or either Bryan or McKiulev.
but bo believed the latter would win.
A delegatiod of prominentdignitariet
ol the Catbolio church, headed by Arch'
bishops Corrigan and Kyan, had an ex

discuss the status of their church in
Porto Rico and the Philippines. Mem

that they were satisfied with the presi

government toward their church and
its property in the former Ppani-b
The published atory tbat General
Chaffee captured $278,000 in gold In
Tein Tsin and shipped it to Washington
is amusing to official circlet. Secretary
Root waa Inclined to be facetious about
it when asked whether Iba atory was
true. - He said : "I never heard that
General Chaffee look anv gold at Tien
Tin, If the treasury people got hold ol
it, they tock advantage - of my absence
1 wouldn't have let them have It bad I
been here." Tba facts are ancient newt
Soma money wat captured by Rear
Admiral Remy'e marines when Tien
Tsin waa taken, and it was about Hie
amount mentioned. The other powers
mad a demand tor the money, but
Admiral Keiny declined to give it up
and deposited it in his own name in an
eastern bank, subjected to the order of
the nsvy department, and It it there
yet. Thit government hat not decided
what will be dona with it, and It may
be said to be held in trust at present.
Tbe Chinese government ha made no
derr.aud for It.
Although there are no parly politics
in tba daughter ol tba American
revolution, it waa brought out at tbe
celebration of the tenth anniversary of
the organisational Washington, several
davt ago, that the leading candi
dates for president to succeed Mrs
Daniel Manning, of New York,
whose reelection is prohibited by
the constitution of the organisation,
and ahose time will expire Feb. 22,
1801, are Mrs. Bryan, wife of Hon. W. J.
Bryan, of Nebracka, and Mia. Roose
velt, wife of Gov. Roosevelt, of New
York. The election will not take place
until the 22nd of February next. Both
ladies have active partisans, but the
election (or president of the United
Stales will probably b an imortant
factor In determining the winner, the
daughtera being fully aware of the
social and other advantigea of elsollna

Yon are not doing yourself Justice when you send away for roods.
First, because you get your living out of Southern Oregon and the
more business that is done in Southern Oregon the more chance you
have yourself of getting more of it. And more business will bricx
more people and more people will help the price of real estate, and so it
goes. .. A personal pride in the advancement and building up of our

tbat ottr prices will average lower than those of the retail catalogue

fact that they must pay transportation charges and collection, etc., and
find that when they do finally get the goods that tbe express or freight
