The Chinese emperor's English

The strongest reason why sena
tors should be elected by the peo
ple, is presented by the various
western states at present, where the
legislature is dead-locked and no
other business can be done.

The death of Justice Lamar

Everything is running to extre

The total number of clerks em
ployed at the legislature is ninety
one. The wages range from four
to ten dollars per day. They will
cost the state this session, more
than twenty thousand dvllars a
su.n largely in excess of the pay of
all the members of both houses,
milage and all. In view of tiiis it
is not surprising that disgraceful
scenes of begging and buttonholing

womanly and unmanly fur cleik
ships. The booty held out to them
to scramble after was unusual, and
if they barked and jumped for it
like so many canines after a piece
of meat the commonwealth need
not be astonished. That the mem
bers liked the sport and were prone
to encourage it, is proven by the
fact that they voted down the res
olution fixing the pay of olerks at
three dollars per day, a rate of
compensation that would have
been effectual in securing the ser
vices of a sufficient number of
clerks, viz, about twenty, thorough
ly competent for the duties required
ot them. It the pay were placed
in reason, the behavior of appli
cants would be reasonable; it was
made extravagant and men and
women trailed self respect and
dignity in the dust in the struggle
for booty. And taxpayers whistle
for 15,000 overpaid them. Ben

notice that Mr. Jeffreys voted sol
idly for the three dollar measure
and Mr. Belknap voted as solidly
against it. Corvallis Times.
