"THE OFFICIAL PAPER OF GILLIAM
There has been developed an ini
perfection in the flection law that j
ought to be remedied. Formerly a j
ninety days residence in the county j
was required of every elector; but j
under the new law nothing but a j
precinct residence is required, and j
this residence may have been of
only one day'6 duration. For in
stance, says the Corvallis Times,
any man after living in Linn coun
ty all his life may move with his
family into Benton county the day
before election and thereupon he ;
becomes a voter; or, any single
man six months a resident of the
state can vote in any county he
pleases, provided he sees fit to:
laim it his residence and swear in j
his vote. Under this provision !
t ramps, travelers or any other loose j
persons having the right to stop !
over night in a county and help its
residents to decide who their coun
ty officers are to be. The law is an
incentive to fraud, for it encourages
the importation of foreign voters.
It tends to corruption and sets at
naught the ballot of good, bona fide
citizens. The remedy for it is a
county qualification of at least
ninety days, and to render it per
fectly effective our constitution
should be so amended that we can
have a registration provision. That
places every voter on record, lo
cates him definitely, and is a sure
safeguard against fraud. Added to
the Australian law it would give
the state a healthy ballot system.
According to the latest election
returns throughout , the state the
republicans will have 71 out of 90
members in the next legislature.
They will be divided as follows: In
the senate, 19 republicans, 8 demo
crats, 3 populists; in the house, 53
republicans, 0 democrat, 7 popu
lists. Since the republicans have
such an overwhelming majority in
the legislature, the governor and
all the other state officers, they
must be responsible for the state
government, and if anything goes
wrong they can no longer blame
Pennoyer for it. It was a mistake
about one democrat being elected
to the legislature at the late elec
tion. The official returns headed
him off and the repub. candidate
won by a small maj ority.
Salem Democrat: The Orego
nian has now eight machines which
will be used to set type for that
paper and the Telegram. They
will probably be in full operation
by the first of the week. This will
throw at least 28 printers out of
employment, which will come hard
on them. Most of those who will
lose their places are men who have
grown old at the case, and it will
be hard for them to find employ
ment. The Oregonian will save
from the workmen thus disposed
$600 a week, and in a few months
will have money enough to put
another story or two on its build
ing. The result of this movement
on the part of the Oregonian will
probably be the establishment of a
big morning daily in Portland.
Will there be any advance in
the price of wheat is a question
that appeals to every citizen. Tha
Tciedo. Blade says that the low
price of wheat shows no feature of
possible improvement. It is offer
ed in Europe, by other countries
than this, at prices which render
competition impossible. On last
Friday,. Argentine wheat was offer
ed in London, including cost, in
surance and freight, at 54 cents.
The world's stock of this cereal does
not decrease enough to materially
improve the outlook for holders.
The new crop is near at hand, and
there is nothing on which to base
Xhe hope of a rise. On thecon
f rary, 50-cent wheat in Chicago is
The present term of circuit court
will be an inexpensive one to Lane
county. Not an indictment was

a population of at least 25,000

Crossing a field one day Abra
ham Lincoln, it is said, was pur
sued by an angry bull. He made
for the fence, says Life's Calendar,
but soon discovered that the bull
was overtaking him. He then be
gan to run around a haystack in
the field and the bull pursued him,
but in making the circles around
the stack Lincoln was the faster
and, instead of the bull catching
him, he caught the bull and grab
bed him by the tail. It was a firm
grip and a controlling one. He be
gan to kick the bull and the bull
bellowed with agony and dashed
across the field, Lincoln hanging
to his tail and kicking him at
every jump, and as they flew along
Lincoln yelled at the bull: "Darn
you, who began this fight?"
The strong facial resemblance
which married couples often acquire
after living together a long period
of years, harmonious in thought
and feeling, and subject to the
6ame conditions in life, have often
been commented upon. The pho
tographic society of Geneva recent
ly took the pictures of seventy
eight couples for an investigation
of this subject The result was
that in twenty-four cases the re
semblance in the personal appear
ance of the husband and wife was
greater than that of brother and
sister, in thirty cases it was equal
ly as great, and in only twenty-four
as there a total absence of resem
blance. A statement from the United
States mint gives the amount of
money in the world as follows:

Total . . .... . .... ..$10,271,178,000
The populaton of the world is from
1,400,000,000 to 1,600,000. Admit
ting that the population is not
over 1,400,000,000, there is only a
little over $7.30 per head of all
kinds of money. This per capita
is divided about as follows: Gold,

A lady in this city who is oppos
ed to female suffrage has long been
pestered to sign a petition circula
ted in favor of extending the suf
frage to women. In despair she
appealed to her husband what to
do and received the following ad
vice: ''Tell the person when she
calls again that you will sign her
petition when you no longer have
any confidence in your husband,
your father, your brother or your
son; then, and not until then, sign
the petition." Pittsburg Post.
A newspaper whose columns over
flow with advertising of business
men, has more influence in atteact
ing attention to and building a
town or city than any other agency
that can be employed. People go
where there is business. Capital
and labor will locate where there is
an enterprising community. No
power is so strong to build up a
town as a newspaper properly pat
ronized. It always returns more
than it receives. Rev. De Witt

has suspended publication, making
its final appearance last Thursday,
This we had predicted, but had not!
expected the event to happen quite
so soon. There is more about get
ting out a newspaper than one has
an idea, and just because'one can
dish up a racy article is no sign he
is a newspaper man, or knows any
thing about making a success of
tiat business. Long Creek Eagle.
Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, has
secured the passage of a bill pro

will than have three circuit judges.

A contributor to the San Fran
cisco Argonaut has drawn attention
to the term nom de plum as being
an erroneous one, and not convey-
gingthe true meaning. He states

A famous scientist, after careful
experiments finds that when pota
toes are cooked without removing
the skins they lose onlv 3 per cent
i of nutritive quality through ex
traction of the juice. V hen the
skins were removed before boiling,
the loss was 14 per cent, which
makes the process of cooking the
potatoes without their jackets an
exceedingly wasteful one. '

J. O. Wilson, Contractor and

thus speaka of Ayer's Pills i
" Ayer's Tills are the best medicine I
ever tried; and, io my judgment, no
better general remedy could be devised.
I have used thura In my family and
racoiumeudod them to my friends and
tmployes for more that, twenty years.
To my certain knowledge, many caaee
.of the following complaints have been
by the use of Ayer's Pills alone: Third
day chills, dumb ague, billons fever,
sick headache, rheumatism, flux, dys
pepsia, constipation, and hard colds. I
know that a moderate use of Ayer's
rills, continued for a few days or weeks,
as the nature of the complaint required,
would be found an absolute cure for the
disorders I have named above."
"I have been selling medicine for
elsht years, and I can safely say that
Ayer's Pills give better satisfaction
than any other Pill I ever sold." J. J.
