THE HOLT ELECTION BILL.
Measure to Be Actively Urged by tta
The Holt election bill is a measure of
considerable importance ' that will be
urged actively upon the attention of
the legislature. It will be cham
pioned by the Populists, and they desire
its passage more perhaps than any
other bill. It has been indorsed by the
Populist party throughout the state.
The proposed act relates to the ap
pointment of judges by county courts.
Its policy is to provide for representa
tion by the three leading parties on
election boards, and it is made obli
gatory upon the county judge to desig
nate the person recommended by the
chairman of the respective central com
mittees. The clerks are to be appoint-
. . . . ii. , i i
ea in similar manner irom we two leau
ing parties. The appointments shall
be made on the first Saturday in May,
instead of in January, as at present.

, Senator Carter has by request pre
sented the following bill relating to the
' free ferry at Corvallis: ,
"That the county court of Benton
county, Or. , is hereby authorized and
empowered to establish and maintain a
free ferry across the Willamette river,
at Corvallis, Or. , and to accomplish
that end shall have ' the power to buy,
build or lease a ferry, grounds and
equipments therefor, or may in the dis
cretion of. said court hire or employ
other persons to furnish such ferry,
groundsand equipments and run the
same as a free ferry at all reasonable
hours; provided, that " in ' conducting
said ferry it shall be lawful for said
county court to prescribe rates of ferri
age to be charged customers for cross
ing said ferry during the hours between
8 o'clock in the evening and 6 o'clock
in the morning. Said county court is
hereby authorized to do everything
neoessary to maintain said ferry as
completelyas a natural person could do. "
: Here is a bill by Senator Harmon
that will be of interest to many: . ,
"Seotion 1. Any person riding or
driving any vehicle, whether such
vehicle is drawn or propelled by animal
roads in the' state of Oregon, when met
by any other vehicle shall keep to the
right, and, . when overtaken by any
other vehicle, he shall likewise keep to
the right, allowing such rider or driver
to pass him to the left, so as in both
cases to permit such vehicles to pass
free and uninterrupted.
"Sec. ,2. Any person who shall vio
late any of the provisions of this act
snau do aeemea guuiy oi a misae
. meanor, and, upon conviction, shall be
fined not less than $10 nor more than
$50, or imprisonment in the county
jail not more than twenty-five days."
The senate committee on assessment
and taxation has under consideration
something like twenty-five bills, cover
ing all phases of the subjeot. It meets
almost daily for the purpose of con
sidering them. Several of the bills pro
vide an entirely new assessment of law;
but Chairman Hughes thinks that the
session has so far progressed that it will
be inadvisable to attempt to enact a
general law. An attempt will prob
alby be made to pass a special measure
designed to correct the present assess
ment code. .'

TO REAPPORTION THE STATE
Representative Somen' Bill
Census of 1895.
' Under the constitution, it is the
duty of the present legislature to reap
portion the state in senatorial and leg
islative districts, based on the state
census of 1895; and to that end, Repre
sentative Somers has framed a reappor
tionment measure. The census figures
were obtained by Somers from the sec
retary of state. The ratio of apportion
ment for senatorial districts is one sen
ator for every 12,084 of population, and
fraction thereof exceeding one-half;
and for representatives one for every
6,042 of population. For senators, the
apportionment is as follows:
First district Marion county; two

Hold-over senators representing joint
districts shall be considered senators
for the new districts in which they
The most important change in the
measure is the increase of the represen
tation of Multnomah county. ' It gives
fifteen representatives as against nine
at present, and eight senators as
against fivd at present. Multnomah
has aobu't one-fourth the state's popu
lation. Senator Mulkey's road bill is for an
amendment to the old law providing
for taxing lands adjacent to the county
roads for the purpose of improving
them. It-makes the territory affected
to extend not more than two miles on
each side of the proposed road, or to
the next adjacent parallel road, instead
of three miles, as under the old law.
It provides that not less than one-fifth
of the tax shall be paid by the county,
the remaining four-fifths to be paid by
the taxpayers, provided that the coun
ty court may determine for the county
to pay more than one-fifth of the tax.
The law, as it now exists, provides for
the payment of the entire tax by 'the
taxpayers residing within three miles
of the road in question. Less than a
majority of the taxpayers residing
within the : limits may petition --the
county court for such tax levy for the
purpose of improving a county road.
The Court, upon discretion, may order
the levy upon petition of - less than a

duced a bill to make-Ashland college

policy of government is the same as for
other normal schools. - The bill carries
a $15,000 appropriation.

Representative Crawford, of Douglas
county, . has introduced a maximum
freight rate bill, designed to govern
the railroad corporations of the state.
Rates in detail for various distances
are prescribed for every manner of
freight, and it is made unlawful for
any corporation to charge more. Repre
sentative Crawford says that one prin
cipal object of his bill is to prevent
railroads from raising rates when the
price of wheat or other commodities
advances. 1 ;

THE MEANING OF IT.
Very often we give the wrong meaning tt
a word and thereby make serious mistakes
For instance, the true and literal meaning
of the word rheumatism is "aches or paini
of the muscles, bones and joints of the hu
man body." It is general and not specific
Also the word relief does not mean cure
Relief may be but a short cessation of pain
But when we say St. Jacobs Oil cures rheu
matism promptly and permanently, w
mean it conquers pain quickly with no re
turn of it, unless the sufferer gives cause
for a new attack, and then it will cure
again. It matters not whether it is chronic,
acute or intiammatory, it will cure. That
is sure, be sure of it. -

TO GET OUT OP THE WAT
When trouble is coming, la obviously the part
of common sense. An obstruction of the
bowels is a serious obstacle to health. To get
this out of the way is an easy matter with the
thorough laxative, Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters, which, although it affords relief, never
gripes and convulses like a drastio purgative.
lvspepsia, malaria, kidney and rheumatic
ailments and nervousness yield to this genial
family medicine. .

Plumstead, Kent, England, Nov. 8, 1895.
With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef
forts gentle efforts pleasant efforts
rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condii
tion of the system, Which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
very where esteemed bo highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists. -
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of
figs stands highest and is most largely
ved and gives most general satisfaction.

. Olympia, Wash., Feb. 1. Judge
George Turner, of Spokane, was at
noon Friday elected by the legislature
to succeed Watson O. Squire in the
United States senate. He was chosen
on the twenty-fifth joint ballot of the
session, and on the first ballot of the
day, as a direct result of the caucus of
fusionists which made him its nominee
last night, and one of the most inter
esting and stubbornly contested of the
senatorial battles of this state is
brought to an end.
The election was of an exceedingly
formal nature, although those who re
fused to abide by the caucus nomina
tion continued their opposition to the
last moment, in the hope of causing de
lay and of the possibility of the defeat
of the choice of the majority.
Turner reeived 68 of the 87 votes of
fusionists, or 11 more than a majority
of the entire legislature. Nineteen
fusionists refused to vote for him, all
of whom were Populists, except Wil

' PRIZEFIGHT BILL SIGNED.
Governor of Nevada Would Not Oppose
Wishes of the People. 1
Carson, Nev.,Feb. l. Assembly bill
8, intended, to permit Corbett and Fitz
simmons to fight in this state, is now
a law, the governor having signed it.
When aaekd if he ever had any thought
of vetoing it, he replied:
"I waited to see what the majority of
the people ' seemed to want, intending
to be entirely guided by their wishes.
This policy I have pursued to the end,
and because the people were in favor of
the .bill, I signed it. Of the merits in
the argument made against the glove
contest in the bill, I have nothing to
say. ' A. majority of our citizens
seemed to wish it, and I have signed it.
That is all there is to it." ,
Wheelock is in San Francisco now,
but before his .departure, he refused to
gay anything concerning the location
of the fight if it came to this state at
all. That it will come to Nevada seems
almost a sure thing, but Carson and
Reno both claim to be the favored
spots in which it will actually occur.

at the hands of Spanish officers at Porto
Rico. The Stubbs left Philadelphia in
December for ' Porto Rico, with a cargo
of coal, and Captain Door carried a
bundle of American newspapers for his
consignee. At Porto Rico she was
boarded by Spanish officers, who re
lieved Captain Door of his newspapers,
and subjected the officers and crew to
the closest scrutiny. They were dogged
throughout their stay on the island,
and at every turn were watched and an
noyed by Spanish officers. :
