- A Washington, dispatch says there
publican members, of congress from the
fcfouth are mad all the way through
over their failure to capture a1 single
one of the fat offices given out by the
caucus. They demanded the poptmas
tership of the house, but the combine
bad offered it to the Ohio delegation in
.exchange for the vote of that delega
tion for the combine candidates. They
threaten to make it warm forMcKinley
in. the national convention. The fol-
Mean congressmen and sent to General
Grosveiior, the boss of the Ohio delega
tion: "Hr Southern republicans take
this method of presenting the Ohio
candidate lor president in mourning.
You have swapped the presidency for
the postmostership of the house. It is
a pity that McKinley has to suffer for
the acts of others, but suffer he must.
Does your brother Pan get a place in
the deal that knocks McKinley out of
the presidency?" Accompany the let

The Oregon and Washington divi
sion of the Travelers' Protective Asso
ciation of America, at a meeting in
Portland last Saturday, resolved to
take action looking towards the build
ing of a boat railway at The Dalles, on
the plan outlined by Alexander Kunz.
It is intended to ask the farmers and
all others interested to assist by sub
scriptions of either money or produce.
The association has provided itself with
such figures and facts as will, it is
thought, induce the farmer to give his
help willingly. For instance, it is
claimed that this boat railway would
effect a saving in freight to the farmer
of from 5 to 7J cents per bushel. The
road will be ten miles long, and it is
estimated will cost $400,000 and be
from six to twelve months in building.
The following decision by the su

A case was appealed to the supreme
court wherein a wife sought a divorce
on the grounds that her husband was
a drunkard, and the court ruled as fol
lows: "You voluntarily chose a drunk
ard for your husband, and you should
discharge the duties of a drunkard's
wife. , His failure to keep a pledge of
reformation, before marriage, does not
justify you in deserting him. Having
knowingly married a drunkard, you
must make yourself content with sa

The deficiency in the revenues of the
government is due principally to the
nullifying of the income tax by the su
preme court. The new . tariff and the
internal revenues are yielding all the
revenue that was expected from them,
while the income taS would have
yielded just about $30,000,000, which is
very nearly what the deficit for the
year will be. Mountaineer.

The Torrens land-Transfer System,
The Australian system of land trans
fer was adopted in Australia in 1853,
and is called the "Torrens plan" from
its originator. Its salient points are
these: The land owner goes before the
registrar general and proves his title,
the same as he would in a court of law.
If his proof is satisfactory, that official
issues to him a certificate, which sets
forth the legal fact that he is the owner
of that parce of land. From that time
that particular parcel of land can not
be conveyed by deed. The certificate
is conclusive of title in any court of
law. No one can go behind it for any
purpose. It is not only a certificate of
title, but a government warrant of that
title. When the owner wishes to sell
the land he returns the certificate to
the registrar general, who issues an
other to the purchaser. The same pro
cess is used to sell a portion of the land;
a certificate is issued to the new pur
chaser for the part he hag bought, and
a new one to the original owner for the
part he still holds.
The fee is a mere trifle. The placing
of a mortgage on the land is equally
simple and the fee is insignificant.
. There is no tedious search, no abstract
of title to be made out. Real estate
can be transferred as simply and expe
ditiously as certificates of stock are
now. In fact,' there is no legitimate
object which a land owner can accom
plish under the existing law which
cannot be accomplislieJ more readily",
more safely, and at far less expense un- j
der the Australian system. By the
registration of titles fraud is impossible,
simplicity takes the place of complex
ity, and the cost has been enormously
reduced. It has been in operation in
Australia for 35 years and in New South
Wales for 30 years, It has given full
satisfaction, and no less than eight of
the colonies of Great Britain have al
ready adopted it, among them British
Columbia, our nearest neighbor. The
law was originated by Sir Robert R.

Mr. Blowers' Position.
Hoob River, Dec. 5, 1895. Editor
Glacieb: Herewith I hand you letter
from Dr. W. L. Adams addressed to
myself prior to election. I wish it
published to disprove many assertions
that have been made that I have re
linquished my veto power, which is
not correct. I hope my friends (?) will
now discontinue their mud slinging:
.Hood River, Oregon, Dec. 2, 1895.
L. N. Blowers Dear Sir: I find that
the only objection urged against you
for mayor is a widespread fear that you
may, if elected, veto some ordinance
which may be passed by the council
which the members thereof may think
for the ititerest of the taxpayers.
I think the resolution passed by the
primary meeting that nominated you,
Nov.. 20, 1895, covers the case and binds
you as it does the members of the
council. .The resolution passed is as
Resolved, That the candidates of
this primary for mayor and council are
hereby pledged, if elected, not to in
crease the indebtedness of the town,
nor to levy a tax on the assessable prop
erty of the town without the consent
of a majority of the taxpayers.
.This to my mind is plain enough as
meaning to bind the mayor and coun
cil to enact no , legislation . whatever
calculated to increase taxation without
the written consent of amnjority of the
taxpayers inside of this incorporation.
.' By this resolution I understand (and
so do others) that any ordinance passed
by the council conflicting with above
resolution, about which the council
and mayor may differ, shall be prompt
ly signed by the mayor whenever a
majority of the taxpayers within the
limits of this incorporation shall peti
tion him to do so. -
Is this your understanding of the ob
ligations imposed upon the mayor elect
by the passage of the above mentioned
I will stand by the resolution as
passed by the voters at the primary.
L. N. Blowers.

Pouring Oil on Troubled "Waters.
Hood Rivek," Dec. 5, 1895. Editor
Glacier: Permit me to correct some
wrong impressions which I . learn are
entertaiued by some well meaning peo
ple here. I drew up the paper signed
by Mr. Blowers, mayor elect, pledging
him to abide by the resolutions passed
by the primary meeting, binding the
mayor and council to enact no legisla
tion increasing the burthen of taxation
without the consent of the taxpayers.
The mayor is bound to veto all ordi
nances increasing taxation (if the coun
cil, also bound, should violate their
pledges and pass an ordinance increas
ing the same), or sign the same at the
request of a majority of the taxpayers.
Outside of this, neither the mayor nor
council are bound, as any man having
common sense can see. If the council
chooses to pass an ordinance requiring
me to shut up my chickens aud keep
the roosters separate from the hens, to
catch up and impound my cow, to send
the marshal on a still hunt for female
dogs, or to shave tne manes and tails
of all hordes running at large, the
mayor, under the resolution, can either
sign or veto, as he sees fit.; But if I
should wish to carry my spring water
into town, and the council should at
tempt to fix the price at which, I
should sell the same, I should expect
the mayor, as an honorable man, to
veto it, as the water is private property
and the council has no more right to
dictate my price than it has, to fix the
price of butter, eggs, wood or potatoes
brought to town for sale by the farm
ers. No such legislation, I am satis
fisd, is intended. If so, weak intel
lects proposing and currying it out will
soon learn how quick the courts will
open their eyes. - W. L. Adams.

"Good-by, God Bless You."
' I like the Anglo-Saxon speech,
With Its direct reveallngs;
It takes a hold and seems to reach .
. Way down into your feelings.
That some folks deem It rude, 1 know, '
And therefore they abuse It;
But I have never found it so
Before all else I choose it.
I don't object that men should air
The Galie they have paid for.
With "au rcvoir," "adieu, ma chere,"
For that's wha Freoch was made for.
But when a crony takes your hand
At parting to address you,
He drops all foreign lingo, and
.He says, "Good-by, God bless you!"
1 love the words, perhaps, because
When I was leaving mother,
Standing at last in solemn pauso,
We looked at one another;
And I I saw In mother's eyes
The love she could not tell me
A love eternal as the skies,
Whatever late befell me. '
She put her arms around my neck
And soothed the pain of leaving,
And though her heart was like to break,
She spoke no work of grieving;
She let no tear bedim her eyes
For fear that might distress me,
But, kissing me, she said good-by '
, And asked our God to bless me. '
