SKTTLEI AT LAST.
Although it was known to a mor
nl cwtr.inty all over the country on
lNuv(iiil).jr Gth that Cleveland had
U'fii triumphantly elected President,
yot, in obedience to a telegram from
Blaine, the trickster, to the National
Committee, to "claim everything for
a few days," suspense followed for
awhile which was annoying to
Democrats and Republicans alike.
But the final canvass has now been
rando which settles all. It shows
Cleveland to have been elected and
the Republican press is forced to
concede the point It was more than
suspected in New York State during
the several days the Republican
claim was kept up that Blaine would
finally be shown to have carried New
York, that a bold stroke had been de
cided upon to reverse the "figures by
force and fraud and bribery; but the
temper of tho people manifested it
self during these days in many em
phatic ways, and showed the manip
ulators that they would tread upon
i xtrpmely dangerous ground in any
'attempt to debauch the returns as
they had decided to do, when the
Kchemo ,was abandoned.

Hon. J. M. Siglin paid Denmark a
professional visit last week, stopping
over a couple of days and returning
td the Bay Thursday." Mr. S. has
hosts of friends in Curry county,
who aro always glad to have him
among them. This fact was suffi
ciently illustrated last June when, in
the face of a Republican majority of
forty votes, he carried the county by
siitv. maioritv. As a lawyer he
. stands pre-eminent in Southern Ore

palm -to "Sig."
