THE POPULAR VOTE.
The following It the popular vote cast
for President so far as reported :
I 155.3071 I70.57a
As between Cleveland and Harrison the
returns are official in all the 6tates, except
Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio
and West Virginia. Cleveland's majority
over Harrison will be about 120,000 or
twice what it was fouryears ago. The pro
hibition vote will be about 275,000 or 125,
000 more than it was four years ago.
Day by day the army of spoils seekers
in Oregon who expect to hold office under
Harrison as compensation for party servi
ces rendered increases. There are at least
ten applicants for every office in the power
of the administration to fill. Already a
very bitter warfare has sprung up between
different contestants in various parts of the
state, and it may be safely predicted that
there is a '-whole lot" of fun ahead. These
contentions are still beneath the surface,
but by ths 4th of March they will stand out
in open day light. Every state in the union
has its army of spoils hunters, not made up
of the best, but on the contrary, made up
largely of the worst,elements of the repub
lican party. Every ward striker and
shoulder hitter, every man who contribut
ed or distributed boodle to secure the "elec
tion of Harrison In the interest of good
government" must have an office for him
self or friend. The boodle dispenser in the
"doubtful states" w 10 openly bought votes
will make itapppear that he has the strong
est claim on Harrison's administration
and the more votes bought the more zeal
will the applicant display in his search for
spoils. Harrison will not have the one
tenth part of the spoils feed necessary to
satisfy this daily increasing ravenous appe
tite for office. There is but little hope that
Harrison will have any peace until every
democrat in federal office, high or low, shall
be made to go. That he will make a clean
Sweep hardly admits of doubt The pro
fessions of a purpose to enforce civil ser
vice rules will prove a mere pretense made
to allay the suspicions of the true friends
of true civil service reform. The pressure
brought to bear on the ne it president will
be enormous. It will be made, not by the
best and truest republicans, those who
would use the party as a means to secure
good government, but on the contrary, by
the ' 'workers" of the party, by those who
are in the party because they hope to be
made the beneficiaries of the victories of
the party. But the party is divided on this
subject as the democrats are. There are
many republicans who believe the public
welfare is paramount in importance to the
mere possession of the offices. The num
ber of people who believe In the doctrine of
reforming the civil service in such a way
that the offices shall not be the contention
in a presidential election is rapidly Increas
ing. Under Cleveland's administration this
sentiment has gained a permanent foothold
in the minds of the people. This reform
will never go backward. It remains for
Mr. Harrison to say whether it shall con
tinue to grow or receive a set back under
In another column we print the pros

Pi-re Teas. If you want a first-class
article of teas gotothe Willamette Packing
Co's. store, their German mixed tea Is just
what every one ought to ue, as It Is first
class tea and warranted to give satisfaction.
Capt. Humphrey of this city does not
view the prospect of getting Into the office
of U. S. Marshal next March with unmixed
satisfaction. There arc several dark clouds
though not larger than a man's hand appar
ently, hanging over his pathway that wor
ries him to say the least. First of all Is the
cloud of doubt about the removal of Hon.
John Myers, who Is filling the office well.
There arc vague hints thrown out that Har
rison will be slow, oh, so slow, in removing
the hated democrats. Then there are the
dark shadows of Col. Melton SVeidler.P B
Sinnott and x-SheriM John W. Minto, all
of whom want the office, oh so much. It is
hinted that one of the gentlemen has strong
senatorial backing. Hut Cap. has his eyes
open, and we predict if a change is made a
'whole lot" of people all over the state will
be asking that Cap. should be appointed.
We see no reason why a republican ad-1
ministration should not give him what he
has fairly earned.
