The lines of no two human
hands are exactly alike. When a
traveler in China desires a psss
poit, the palm of the hand is cov

stamped, is his passport. Ex.
Ik Ohio a farmer painted his
house white. It rained before the
paint was dry, and the rain carried
plenty of white lead into the cis

water, and six members of the
family ere dying. It requires some

The Oregonian'i Washington
correspondent writes that Gover?
new-elect Lord, tS Oregon, and bie
wife spent a few days in Wash
ington, before going tome. Tbe
governor made a decided hit in
inviting President Cleveland to
visit Oregon, especially as the
boorishness of Pennoyer on the
occasion of President Harrison's
visit is still remembered. - Govern
or Lord became quit a prominent
figure as the man who succeeds the
peculiar Pennoyer. His invitation
to the president and the fact that
he coupled it with the assurance
that the people of Oregon would
at any time welcome the chief
executive of the nation, has done
much to give the people of the
East a better opinion of the state.
It elan left the impression that
Pennoyerism was on its last legs

Press Association of New York,
Hr. Whitelaw Beid was called up
on to respond to the toast, "The
Independent Press." Here is bis
response as reported in the daily
papers of that city: "There is no
such thing in America as an in
dependent press, unless it is out
in the country towns. You are
all slaves. You know it and. I.
know it, there is not one of yeu
who dares to express an honest
opinion. U you express it, you
know before hand that it will not
appear in print. I em paid 11501
for keeping honest opinions out of
the paper I am connected with.
Others of you are paid similar
salaries for doing similar things.
If I should allow honest opinions
to be printed in one issue of my
paper, like Othello, before twenty-
four hours my occupation would
be gone. Tbe man a ho would be
so foolish as to write honest opin
ions would be out en the streets
hunting for another job. Tbe
business of the New York journal
ist is to distort the truth, to lie
outright, to pervert, to v illify, to
fawn at the feet of Mammon and
to sell his country and his race for
his daily bread, or for what is
about the same thing, his salary.
You know this and I know it; and
what foolery to be toasting an
independent press.' We are tools
and vassals of rich men behind the
scenes. They pull the string and
we dance.. Our time, our talents,
our lives, our possibilities, are all
the property of other men. We
are intellectual prostitutes."

The trial of Alma Morris for killing
deer for tbeir bides was completed
befere Justice Powell aud a grand Jury
of six men Saturday. A verdict
not guilty was brought in. . One ffiao
informs The Democrat that be saw
eight earcassss near Moms' plant,

Morris carrying deer in ea his task.
It is stated that he confessed to different
parties, and it is further said he
came to Albany with money to con
fess and pay bis line; but be was ably
defended aud cleared, and likewise
well prosecuted, but tbe jury didn1
look at it aooenling to the reports
given. It is possible no one saw him
