A good lejiistratioii law Is liadly
needed in Oregon. The UU providing
f.r the registration of voters, intro-
uued by Senator Harmon ot Josephine
county, should become a law. It is
indorsed by Dr. T. L. Eliot and other
jrood friends of .ballot reform, und by
K. W. Biughiun! author of our present
excellent bullet law. Mr. Bingham's
criticism of the bill introduced by Mr.
Hill, and which passed the house at
the special session, shows up the won
derful tiiammicies of " the measure
which seems to have been drawn in
the interests of the politicians,'." That
.Mr.' Bingham's criticisms are just, and
given by one who has made a study of
' our systems of voting, in the interest
of purer elections, none will dispute.
The Hill bill curries with it an amend
ment to the Australian ballot law
which would a low the voter to vote a
st latent ticket without reading his bal
lot, by pimply making a cross in the
printed circle at -the top of his party
ticket. This amendment would do
away with the best part of the secret
bullot law, and if-it is adopted we
might as well .dispense with the ex
pensive machinery of the- whole law
and go back to the simple method of
every man preparing his ballot before
coming to the polls.- Every one in
fayor of honest elections who is con-
- versaut With'. the workings of our pres
ent ballot law knows it is all right and
does not :need amendment. But there
is necessity for a registry law, and the
bill introduced by Senator Harmon, If
enacted Jnto law,, will be simple, Inex
pensive and effective.
The""' terrible ' battle at Manila last
Saturday and Sunday, was a shock to
most of us, but was not unexpected.
To read of our soldiers being killed
after their sufferings in that miserable
climate for the past six mouths Is dis
heartening. There is no use trying to
1 ly the blame upon the administration
tor JiHn any part of,, the, people of our
country. The administration might
'haVe been slow in declaring a policy,
but the." treaty was uot ratified. The
seuate. uyht have 'been slow, in
ratifying the . treaty, . but it had six
mouths in which to act after the treaty
was signed by our commissioners at
Paris. Aguinaldo wanted to bring on
nn engagement; ". he wanted a battle,
and he got it got several times more
than lie bargained for. . He has learned
by this tiuiG .that., fighting Americans
Ixi'altogiither" different' from' fighting
Spaniards. The war with our. rehel
lious subjects has commenced. . When
.'will w'e see the end? In the meantime
our volunteers will be kept in "the
Philippines longer than we hoped for
'and longer than will be good for their
-.N; The woman, suffrage amendment to
'the constitution passed the legislature
two years ago, and again at this ses
sion, and now will be voted upon by
' ihe people: at the next general election.
The same amendment was defeated at
he polls 12 pr 15 years ago by an over
v helming majority, and there Is-no
Reason to suppose it will be more 'suc
cessful this time. , It is a fact that a
very small proportion of the women of
Oregon-, the same as other states, desire
ihe righjt to vote aud take upon them
selves" the duties of citizenship that
jiiojv devolve only upon the men. It is
also a fact that there are now too many
voters who never take the trouble to
Juforhi'. themselves upon important
questions, and only vote because they
are, pressed to do so by those who are
The treaty with Spain has been rat
ified by the senate, ' and it is expected,
t( j.'course'j.that the Spanish cortes will
ta'tteflike action at oiice. Thus ends
the',war with Spain. We will pay $20
00000 for the Philippines, ' but Spain
hus not delivered the goods.' We have
bargained, for a "pig in a poke." - It
looks as if we had ended one war to
begin another. ' u.' :.. . . '.'iVii

A farmers' .institute will be held in

'for Saturday afternoon, February 11th,"
at the Mt. Hood bote, to take' action.

Mr.' H." Rice, , who is evidently-a
stockman himself, writes to The Dalles
Chronicle a letter' of warning agaimt
the lease of the Cascade reserve for
pasturing sheep andcattle. Mr. Rice
claims to have been familiar with the
timber licit of the Cascade mountains
for the past 35 years.. He says, speak-
ine of the east side of this timber belt:
".Thirty- years' ago 'this timber belt
wh fho 'largest of any bfjdy of timber
in the world of equal dimensions. 'The
,-jno fell very, deep ill winter upon the
""If;k mulcliing ot silt, moss, slicks aud
a, and also among the (hick uuder
ji'd .trees ' w hie b would cause
the snow to go oft very slow, in fact, it
would last, some years, until almost
the Hi st ot August aud the ground then
was very loose and absorbed the water
from the melting snow like a sponge,
and thus seeped slowly into the creeks
and kept them flush all the season.
.Large tracts ot mis maispensaoie ana
essential seed bed is now destroyed by
fires and Che tramping of herds, and is
bare and dusty, upon winch the snow
falls in winter. With much of the
timber, the undergrowth and mulching
gone, the first winds and warm sun of
the spring melts this snow very rapidly
causing the rivers and creeks to over
flow their banks and wash away many
acres of valuable land as well as preci-
itatingand running on the whole sea
son's waters in a very few days. In
the hot summer time the herds are
kept the most of the time on the creeks
and other watering places and from
these places the freshets take all their
tilth and deposits down me mountain
streams and foul all the water and air
in the settlements below. ; Our rivers
aiid creeks are affording more impure
water; the air is drier aud lees healthy;
our seasons have less rain in spring
and summer, aud our crops are shorter.
It will be very ' nice for . this peerless
belt or limber to t parceled out to us
and leased to us for the pittance of one
cent a head per year. If we can thus
succeed, we can safely promise that in
less than eight years we can make of it
the best slock range on the Pacific
coast, and by that time we can herd on
every foot of this now grand timber re
serve, and will have truly 'killed the
goose that laid the golden egg'."
Thoughts by the Way.
An empty chair, a silent voice what
does it mean? Mother, is gone: but is
she gone? .
in the morning we behold the sun
rise in splendor and majesty, and at
night we observe hini set in glory, hav
ing ruled the day with wisdom and
goodness. And so this diurnal phe
nomenon goes on from aay lo day.
We say, "Nature has so ordained, we
could not exist, nothing could exist,
without the sun.'? ut one day the
horizon is dim; clouds are rising; per
chance they rise slowly, but.they rise.
Say we, "A storm is approaching."
We look east and we look west, we
look uorlh aud we look south, this di
rection and that direction, to see whith
er the clouds are drifting. Meanwhile
the clouds are rising; perchance they
rise slowly, but they rise. They come
our way; still we hope they may not.
The sun is shining, but dimly. The
clouds are rising higher, higher, higher;
they assume a threatening form.- The
sun is yet shining, but more dimly.
Si ill we hope ''a change may take
place," a good wind drive the clouds
hack, or at least scatter them. We
have hope the anchor of life is true
hut we feel thut the critical moment
has come. The clouds are dense; 'tis
growing darker,' darker; the storm
breaks loose, and the sun has 'gone from
our dim vision. But has begone? Has
he vanished, for ever and: ever? No!
By and by the clouds shall have rolled
away and the mighty luminary, the
center nf -all earthly existence, whose
vvarmth causes the snow to melt, the
earth to bring forth flowers, the birds
to sing, and inaketh man rejoice, shall
again, in glory and munificence, appear.
. When this- transcendent measure of
the Creator's bounty to man is (hus
manifest lterevTn'i,his vale.of tears, can'
it be less transcendent, less bountiful
in that 'mysterious land from whose
bourne no traveler has ever returned,
where the wicked cease from troubling
and the weary shall find rest?.
Man can creale nothing and annihi
late nothing. He can build a house or
a ship, but not an atom is created. He
can burn the. house or the ship, but not
an atom is annihilated. : He can plant
the seed of an apple; it grows, and the
result, is a 'little plant. He grafts the
little plant so that the fruit thereof may
in due time suit the fancy of bis indi
vidual laste. By his assistance Nature
develops the little plant into a sturdy
tree 1 ill" whose shadow lie may find
comfort, admire the beauiy and fra
grance of its blossoms, ana its fruits
give health and strength to his body.
Nothing is created; the phenomenon is
only a manifestation of Nature's trans
forming powerof elements, which have
existed from - the "beginning" trans
figuration! Man can reduce the same7
tree, in almost an instant of time, to a'
handful of ashes; but nothing is anui
lated the elements returned to places
from whence they came, the earth and
the atmosphere transfiguration!
When matter is indestructible, how
much more that which dominates mat
ter. That incomprenensihlesornelhing,
the soul, the spirit, which controls the
corruptible body of man, is set free
when the stern harvester of humanity,
Death, levies tribute. We know "that
it is liberated, but whither it goeth we
know not. Is it impossible to believe
that its mission here oir earth is not
yet ended? , If our sense of seeing and
our sense of hearing - were increased a
million times, who can prove that we
could not then .see and hear that in
comprehensible' something, the soul,
the spirit, which we loved while it yet
habitated the form of our dear ones?
For a certainty it can not be the body
a little watery a few . gases and a hand
ful of ashes' that -we love. Were it
thus,' theu we would know of no sor
row.,', ho, heartache, for there would be
no parting of husband and wife, father
aud mother, sister and brother, parents
and children;-'we would have our dear
ones with us alway and we with them.
We would employ the art that the an
cient Egyptians had a knowledge of
4,000 years ago, or, if that art is '.'lost,"
something that would answer equally
well in preserving i he. body after that
which- animated the same, were de
parted. ' ' - ' .- ' -
No.no; 'tis not the clay we love it
is that marvelous something which is
not of this world, and which conse
quently is not perceptible to any of the
buu'ian senses. And so I again re
mark, Mother is gone. But is she gone?
I suppose that my "thoughts by the
way" will, by some, lie pronounced
sheer nonsense and I, myself, an old
fossil "just behind the time" but it j
com forts me to think that there vis a
?ossibility, yea, even a probability, that
am correct in my obtuse speculations.
If I am old-fashioned in my views in
regard to eternity, know and reinemlier
that the grooves in which my thoughts
run were cut by a loving sister's band,
who believes that we shall be rewarded
in .. the, great-..beyond according to the
WMy"weniave done the Master's will in
this world. V . . " A. N. R.

The casket containing the supposed
remains of Christopher Columbus,
which arrived at Cadiz, January 10th,
and was transferred to Seville has been
opened;". About thirty bones and some
ashes were found in the casket. It was
reclosed and will be received at Seville
witli great solemnity and deposited -in
the cathedral. But we cannot, help
thinking that the brave spirit of the
noble discoverer ' would have preferred
that his bones should rest among the

It is curious to note that in Austria
wheat flour is supplanted by a flour
made from that staple food,, the potato.
Potato flour makes a beautiful white
and light, cake and is better than corn
starch in lines where this would be
used, because of the absence of the pe
culiar taste. It is cheaper there by
$1.50 per cwt. than wheat flour. . ..

or supplementary reading .in schools,
U. S. Commissioner , of Ed ucat ion W ,
T. Harris says: "I am very glad to see
this reinforcement of supplementary
