FRIDAY, JUNE 8, 1SSS.
H. Y. Klripatrict, Manager.
Monday closed one of the most event-
.ful elections in the listory of Oregon.
"1 here waa but one issue lefore'the poo
pie and that was the all important
question of the Tariff'. The discussion
was calm and dignified, and the cam
paign was marked by gentlemanly
taring and a fair and candid state
lueut of facts. The result in Linn
county as shown in the table which is
fjur.d elsewhere in this issue shows a
slig&t falling off in the usual dem-t-Tatle
tuajoiities and also a wantof har
riorty in the democratic rants, which
Wiis exemplified in the scratching or
irregularity of the vote. The result in
the state is an increased republican ma
jority from 1600 two years ago to near
70-30 this year, much to the mortifica
tion of the democracy and also a sur
' prise to the republicans. The result
only shows us the uncertainty of the
" Vox Populi," and instability of par-ties-
The democrats demand for revision

Trade by the opposite part, and on
this line they have forced the contest.
The coming presidential campaign will
perhaps develop more statemanship,
.an l'a d per research into political econ
omy, than any question since the "late
unpleasantness." We rejoice that the
lead stench of the past, the bitter acri
monies of sectural hate, are all forgot
ten and burried in the jjreat living
question of the day.
To become a statesman is certainly a
laudable ambition. To be a politician
is to assist in making statesmen. The
one may be as faithful in his work as
t be other. The popular vote m this
-country determines elections and set
ties principles. That vote is largely in
i be control of politicians. Certainly a
politician who favors principles which
i"i believes to be right, and supports
them in an honest manner, is engaged
in a good work.
The strongest denunciations of poli
liciaiis I have ever heard cime from men
who had leen defeated in securing of-
'lii-es. The world looks very dark to
j; man the morning after election
in which he has been defeated for
;'"rice. He remembers the broken pro
mises made to him, but forgets those he
made 'to others. He forswears politics,
abandons his party, and calls himself
an independent, and usualy ends by
making himself a general nuisance.
That our statesmen and politicians
rre growing better instead of worse I
think admits of no doubt. The black
(ruardism recently exhibited in the Uni
ted States Senate is bad enough, but it
is better than the old custom of person
al assault which prevailed before the
war. The condemnation of the public
has been swift and severe. The morals
"of politicians, if a little lower than
those of the people, yet keep pace with
them and never fall far bt-hind.
tories; the ceremonies attending the
laying of the corner stone of the Cath
olic University hus brought together a
large concourse of catholics, among
them being many distinguished clergy
men. Then there has been a Jewisn
gathering here this week, a conference
of Hebrew rabbis at the synagogue on

The election parsed off very quietly

Baptist friends were leaving and the
lawyers were coming, and while neith

movements, they were none the less
welcome. The great convention city
holds out her hand in welcome to all,
whether their advent is under swaying
banner and heralded by martial music
or whether they slip in unobserved,
singly or in groups, from the station,

The Catholic demonstration wa9 di

the next post of honor being given to
the clergy. The procession of clergy
was led by the priests, followed by the
bishops, and then the archbishops,
with the cardinal in the rear. The
blessing of the corner stone was the
first detail of the programe, and then
followed an address by Bishop Spauld
ing, with other exercises.
It would require the space of a large
sized volumeto tell you what took place
in the Baptist conventions, since it
was the largest of the kind ever held
in America. The temperance question
was discussed amongother things how
ever, and I will just mention that the
National Capitol was too attractive,
and that some of the ministers who
made speaches did not hesitate to say
that sight seeing among the delegates
interfered with the conventions.
The report of the committee on Eu
ropean missions indicated treat and
material progress in eyery branch of
the work there. . Another report called
attention to the lack of workers in
China. There is only one missionary
to every 13,000.000 of inhabitants in
that far land. The report of work done
in Japan showed the existance of 20,
000 Protestant Christains in Japan, 17,
500 of that number have been convert

who have consecrated themselves to a
