Lebano-1 -Express. H. Y. K1RKPATRICK, Editor and - Proprietor, HON. C. W, MoBRlDE. At the very lust moment of the session, the legislature elected Hon. George V. MeBriile the successor to Air. Dolph in the United Htntes innate. PerfHimilly Mr. MeBriile is untarnished ly any scmkIhI mid in this respect is full worthy his! high distinction. - Politii ally, he! is n republican and a protectionist! and stands on the platform of his! party enacted in ,'94. " If he is for free silver, no one lias ever heard of it. He is understood to be in favor of limiting the coinage so as not to in iuteifere with the parity between gold and silver. That ought to be good enough for any man, for, on this basis, republicans, democrats and populists can claim the new senator as their own. He is very cautious and has not yet so expressed his views as to enable a voter to really place him. When this is done, we believe he will be found opposed to the extreme free silver centinient of his party, and that he will lean vcarv decidedly to the views of Mr. Dolph. There was a very pronounced opinion that Dolph is a machine politicion. If repeated election to office by the republicans makes their candidate a machine politician, then the new senator is even worst than Dolph, fir he has bee- in office longea ond - oftener than has Dolph. The people do not know the true inwardness of Mr. McBride election and they will not know until some one "talks out in meeting." It matters not what the new senator's views are, and why he was chosen. The Republican party will have to answer for the useless and costly delay in making their choice. They have so manipulated things, in view of this contest, that the most shameful extravagances have been committed. The object ionable and useless commissions have been retained, when their destruction was solemnly promised. The expenses of the Governor's oflice were largely increased, when these same solons talked them selves hoarse in denouncing Gov. Pennoyer for drawing all the money allowed by law. They have given costly positions to numerous clerks many of which pevitiens were merely sinecures. Other useless wastes of money too numerous to note were permitted. No Re publicon paper can conscientiously defend this last legislature. Its sins of omission ami of commission are too glaring and to frequent. Two years more of the burdens that Oregon's people voted to rid themselves of la t June. Not one of the useless commissions has been abolished and not a single one of the economical suggestions con veyed by Governor Lord's inaug ural message has been adopted. Every measure of relief demanded by the people was ignored in the faction fight that prevented the election of a senator until the last moment. It is a record of which tiie republic majority can be heartily ashimed. Telegram.

You will pleuse understand me, Hint 1 do not s.euk from the stuml point nf thePrincipiiLsliip of our school, whieli position us a servant nf the people I have the linnor to occupy; hut plainly as eitteen whose Interests me the In terests uf us all. Education istie I i : the pride, the jwifetyof our American Jtepiililie. The "Common School" saiil tlimicc Sluun, is Hie Republican lincof tiirtitlcutiniis,' and his wonls have been sniiudtd echoed and re-echoed, fioui const to coast, from the Gulf to the British Donimion, until they have become a proverb. In every city, village, and country place, the public school is open and free to all the youth of our land, There they receive the funda mental principles of an education, and drink in draughts of patriotism and devotiou to their country beneath the folds of her flag. A free education for a free people. W must of course meet all the expenses incident to the management of our city; but it should be done by other means than this. The very thought, (much less the net) that the Public School shall pay a license, even on the very day it meets to honor and conirr.eniorate the Anniversary of the beloved and immortal Father of our country is a shame uml a disgrace. This is uot the wuy to foster educa tion. The entertainments of the Public Schools should be always and forever free from tux of every nature. Let us collect our license from our Balls, and the enterprises gotten up for the sole purpose of bringing money profit to their management, but never, never from the efforts of our children, whose achievements and successes are theirs and their country's safely, and our pride. If our city ordinance contains a single clause which requires the col lection of a license from any of imr home educational talent it should be at once repealed. Our schools need every advantage and encouragement they can get; from seven tn eight months iu the year is all the school we have been able to have, and unless Hi is is given under the strongest en couragement, from ull directions, how can we expect our children to compare ill life's race, w hen in a few years they stand shoulder to shoulder iu the world with the youtli receiving from ! nine to ten mnnihs training each year? If there be uny one w ho would seek a sheltering clonk by saying, tliui ttie school should uot have charged un admission of 10c, us it did; (which statement I have heard made) let him consider how Hie expenses of an en tertainment are to be met. Besides I will say that all the moneys received above the expenses went into the school Library fund, to thus become a permanent profit to the school. Who reoieiueLers a lime, or place before, when the exercises ofu Public Hiihool of Ibis laud have paid one cent of license r of tribute? The ichnols of our city have given entertainments of similar nature before, and under the very samecily ordinance we now have. Is our city ordinance to be subject ,to innumerable constructions? It should not be so. If this is the condi tion of tilings, let us have our o.diii- ance changed, encourage the education of our children and our schools, and let their not fie another generation grow up to remember, the the day when Lebanon charged the Public School a license to commemorate the anniversary of Washington, ' Very truly, G. if.

The Washington entertainment iveu ut Mrs. Miller's ball by the Ladies Relief CWm, February 22, af forded a most enjoyable ontertalnmtut to a large and appreciative audience. At an early hour the hall wn Sited to Its full seating capacity, ami the enter luinment Mjotumeuceri by refreshing uiuslo by rite Orchestra. The Hon. C It.

The "rally 'round the flag" brought back the thought "Long may she wave O'er the land f the Free, and the home iff the Brave," which was followed by a choli selection of in usle by the oroliestra. The recitation by Miss fijanah War ner was rendered with uausual grate and eloquence, ond followed by a beautiful vocal , solo by Mite Ilda Klkiiis. ' Here the audience was suddenly surprised by the itart.iiig report that, "George Washington and forty," In costume would boiwr the oacasion by making a short call. In old contln ental attire they shortly cam forward. Everybody seemed to almost reaog uizethe "Father of his country" on sight. The entire party ia costume and uiuimur, suggested euriy timer. The familiar "Star Hpanfled Ban ner" waa then suug by Maw Ilda Klkins, .with a aleameas and purity of voice well matched to the words. The recitation, Our Flag, "by Drak" given by Hon. C. B. Montague, was given with the (Ull BieauUig and am phasis due that glowing trlbnta. The nilrtli of lb ovoniug was brought to its height and overflowing by the "Little Alabama Coan."

The closing exercise vol a tiaod Nigh drill, by the little girls. Their quaint, Innocent, appiauaaea, With their while attire, dolus, aud euudles, made the closing scene a charming feature. . ; The announcement of a choice luach for fifteen cents to be served at the seats was then balled with Welcome looks and feelings. It was aouounaed that the lunch would be passed around and those partaking of it would fay their fifteen cents Ibis nay iu He of of the llfteen cents adtnkaiao fee whiuh waa to have been cliartednt the door, but was remitted because the oily council proposed to exact Jn license, if the "Corps" should charge any ad mission fee. This way of doing saerus to us a lit- tie peculiar as we understand that the, ioouncilnt first promised tlicy woo Id ' exact no license fee, but oo the day of the entertainment stem to have 1 changed, their minds.
