The Populists of Oregon Will Have to
Paddle Their Own Canoe.
II Is now finally settled that the pop
ulists of Oregon, in their effort to elect
congressmen in the first uud second
districts, will have to paddle their own
canoe. The proposed deal with the
democrats is off, and on the single
issue of free sliver, Martin Quinti and
V. S. Vanderburg, the two populist
candidates, must take their chances.
It is proposed to give them plenty of
assistance. Chairman Taubeueck, of
tiie populist national committee, has
sent the best speakers at his command
to slump Oregon.- General Weaver, nf
Iowa, and JameB R. Sovereign, of the
Knights of Labor, are thus early in
the field. Tonight, says a dispatch
from Portland dated May 7, Mortimer
Whitehead, of New Jersey, talks ftir
freesilyeratUresham, and tomorrow
night, J. H. Davls.the "Texas Cyclone"
opens up his free silver batteries In
Portland, in the interest of the popu
lists. In addition to these, J. H. Mc
Dowell, of Tennessee, a well known
populist editor, leaves St. Louis today,
for Oregon, to aid in carrying this
state for populism and free silver. For
three days the populist managers in
Portland sought to bring the democrats
into their procession, and the failure
to do so is explained in the following
Mr. F. A. E. Starr, chairman of the
democratic state central committee,
commenting on the conference held
between the populist executive com
mittee and tiie democrats, said: "No
agreement wap readied, After a care
ful consideration of the subject, and
the existing differences, It did not
seem as if our interests were sufficient
ly identical to allow a uuiou offerees,
aud none of the several propositions
suggested met with favor. The effort
of the free silver democrats aud the
populists to unite on the nomination nf
candidates in the two districts of
Oregon, bus failed, owing to the lack
of unanimity of feeling. Judge Waldo
was at no time seriously considered by
the democrats. He was talaed of, but
uo proposition was evtr made looking
to his nomination. We could stand
nothing like that. The result is that
there will be uo union between the
democrats and populists In Oregon this
time. That Is definitely and finally
School Land Loans.
The state officials have been making
a trip to Eastern Oregon and return,
and while lu Portland, to a reporter of
the Oregouian, the governor said that
they had made an extended trip to
various points in tiie slate, principally
to look into the validity of the many
mortgages held by the state for money
loaned out of the school fund. The
object of the trip was to ascertain by
personal examination and Interviews
with lllo various attorneys in each
county, representing the state's inter
ests, what condition each loan was in.
These were loans made under the Pen
noyer administration aud many will
be a loss to the state. Some were lu
good condition, and ordered renewed;
on others the mortgages were ordered
foreclosed. On the whole aud from
the guarded words ot the governor, it
was inferred that these loans were in
the main not in a very satisfactory
condition. The governor and ills party
also visited the site tor the proposed
Eastern Oregon asylum at Union.
The property is still in the hands of
the parties who Bold it the state, and
nothing can be done in the matter
until the question of the coustitutiuu
ality of the sale is decided by the court.
Governor Lord also took time to pay a
visit to the Cascade locks, .as far as
completed, he was well satisfied with
them. Their completion would, he
said, be a great boon to the state, as,
aside from the advantages as a water
way, the state would be saved the ex
pense of maintaining the portage road,
which at present Is a heavy burden
on the taxpayers.

WHERE MEN ARE CARELESS.
Should Provide for the Future of Those
Dependent Upon Them.
Edward W. Bok writes unon "Whon
Men are Tbouirhlless" in Mav Tjtrl(i
Home Journal, directing attention to
"tne singular Tact that the American
man, who Is the liest and moat thought
ful husband in the world, should yet
oe peculiarly thoughtless aa to the
future of his wife or children in the
event of his death.
Mr. Bok forcibly contends that th
hustiand should have his affairs in
such condition that in the event of
death comiug to him, his wife and
children, or those dependent upon him
wouiii not sutler. In this connection
'I II mil v believe that It la the dots
of every man to be Insured. With
insurance policies to be had at such
low rates as is at present the case,
there is scarcely a man who cannot
afford some sort of a policy, no matter
how small the amount it may call for.
What seems to the man himself in
good health as a small amount for an
Insurance policy, often turns ont to be
a modest fortune to the woman or
children who survive him. I wish.
sometimes, that the taking of au Insur
ance policy, on the part of the husband
for au amount according to his
might be made au obligatoryjpartof
every marriage ceremony. I know
whereof I sneak when I sav that th,n
are hundreds of womeu lu the homes
of this land who are dally carrying
with them the fear that their himh&nrlu
or fathers are neglecting cr forgetting
to make suitable provision for them aa
widows or orpliatis. They shrink from
speaking to t ho men of their homes
about tiie mailer. No man oan afford
to neglect this simple duty which may
meau all tho difference between happi
ness and misery to his family. Suita-

A Big Cattle Deal.
A ten thousand dollar cattle deal
transpired iu the south end of the
county the first' of the week. The
purcnaser is a Mr. Cornelius, who is a
heavy stock dealer of Montana and the
sellers are George A. Houclt and Sam
rerguson, who have beeu gathering
up cattle Jn Benton, Lane and Linn
counties for several mouths past. The
deal includes between 800 and 900 head
of yearlings and two-year-olds, and
they are to be shipped on a special
train at Junction next week. Mr.
Cornelius is in Webfoot buying cattle
because he says Oregon cattle turn off
better on the Montana ranges than do
the Arizona, Texas, and other cattle.
Iu buying these cattle the maximum
price paid by Houck and Ferguson to.
farmers was $13.60 for two-yenr olds,
and $8.50 for yearlings. The cattle
sold to Mr. Cornelius were all steers.
Messrs. Houck and Ferguson have left
ou hand a large lot of cows, calves and
heifers, and three and four-year-old
steers. Corvallls Times.
