A California woman writes Gov
ernor Lord to be sure undimt
suffer Lloyd Montgomery to be
hanged. If the sovereign people
of Oregon h.ad. desired a woman to
ruu their gubaruaturiul business,
they would have selected a webfoot
maid or ' madam for the purpose.
In view of the fact, therefore,- the
governor should kindly request his
$1,800 clork to write the California
female to mind her own business
and let the Lord attend to his.
Oklahoma is the next candidate
for statehood. It claims to have
energy,, population and money
eiiough to make an acceptable sov
ereign state. It will probably have
opportunity, however, to grow used
to territorial honors before assum
ing state responsibilities. It -has
at present an irreconcilable quarrel
on hand as to the location of its
oapital. Perry, Guthrie and Okla
homa City are jealous rivals for
this honor, ?nd each is ready to
bluck the movement toward state
hood until it gets it.
It has often been said that na
tions arc developed like individ
uals, passiug through the same
successive stages of infancy, vo:th.
maturity and old age. This theory
receives support from what is his
torically known respecting the
evolution of the color sense in the
infant. According to recent obser
vations, the process is as follows:
At first it has only the perception
of light, but soon learns the differ
ence between black and white, then
begins to notice objects and appre
hend their movements. At about
six months tiie sensations of red
and green take their rise in the
central portions of the retina, and
are perfected at the end of the sec
ond year. During the third year
the child becomes acquainted with
yellow; during the fourth, with
orange, blue, and finally with vio
let; the chromatic sense lis thus
fully unfolded at the age of five or
six. Within another year he forms
the habit of distinguishing the
above-named colors in his talk.
The Annamites, we are told, are
able to discern (aside from Mack
and white) only red, green and
yellow; hence the intellectual
growth of this people, so far as
vision is concerned, may be com
pared to thit of a two-year-old
child. Popular Science.
It is generally admitted, that
the last Oregon legislature was by
far the most inefficient in the his
tory of the state, and did more to
pile up burdens upon the tax
payer. The democrats and popu
lists very naturally take this view
of the matter. But they arc not
alone. A large number of republi
cans, heided by the Oregonian and
other papers, are as firmly con
vinced of the entire uuv orthiness
of this legislature, as a whole,
admitting, however, the honesty of
many individual inembtii. So
strong and general is this belief,
that the next legislature may pas'
from the control of the republicans,
and a senator bo elected who will
be of different politics. With this
end in view, a move is being made
throughout the state to nominate
men for whom all parties can vote
and whose personal integrity will
insure a clean and economical ad
ministration, and thus relieve the
over-burdened people. The- time
has come when we must look no
longer to republicans for relief.
Tney had the power, but they used
it to oppress, not to relieve the
people. They were elected .tion a
solemn pledge to cut down i:e:!css
expenses: they nave ii)c:ca?l our
burden and violated their pledgee
ine people ucneveu their proi-iscs
and gave them the power for good:
the people have been deceived
their burdens have been iueiciiwd
the innocent lambs on .-the canvas
turned to ravenous wolves on the
floor of the house. There is a re
ward for wolf scalps, and the
paopls are training for the hunt.
