l many iimn political looked worried
ml nervous. The cloud usumtKl to
take on ii ominous look, and spirit
whlsMire were heard in many dark cor
ners that something dreadful waa about
to happen. Hash lights on every moun
tain aide a.ljsrenl to the various pre--uicts
gave a warning that the storm
which waa alxml to burst forth In all ita
fury would envelop the Republicans and
anow Vin under deep.
Well, it camel Republican defeat In
l.ake county meant Republican defeat
in the alate, wa argued by solous of
both parties. Sure euough It came
true. W. J. Furnlah of Umatilla went
down and out along with Charles Ton
ningsen of Lake, the former covered
over with "f.irniint" ballota to the
liumher of five thousand, marked
plurality, and the latter with on. hun
dred and twelve, majority. George K.
Chamberlain, Democrat of Portland,
will warm the seal to lx vacated by T.
T. Geer of the Waldo hilla, and H. Daly
iH'iii.KTitt and Republican, will sit
on the triKl of Lake County' rourt fot
the iii-it four years, taking the place of
Charles Toniiiiipsen, who lias gone to
Fish creek to herd sheep.
The Republican saved nut of the.
melee the Coroner, F. K. Harris, who
waa elei-icd by an "overwholinning ma
jxritv." The Ii'iuM-ruti even elected
the CotiKtuble, James Judge, who will
eee that no Republican disturbs the
jware of thia oomtniw.ity for the next
The Republicans also elected the
Omnty Assessor John Blair, who will
eee that the wealthy men of the county
pay their taiea in equal proportion to
the MMir men .
The Republicans alao caved the
Hhvritf with the assistance of I Vino
cratic votera and that ia all we have to
aho for it In take county. The bal
lota ahowed the moat (rightful mix-up
that waa ever recorded in thia county.
It needa no explanation when one
looks over the figures. The State
ticket waa carried by the Republicans
in Lake by a big majority, and Judge
Tonningaen, Republican, waa deleated
by 113 majority. Schroder, Demo
crat, was defeated for sheriff by 134,
and Blair, Kepnblican, waa elected by
193 majority. Ounther, Republican,
waa defeated for Clerk by a majority of
It waa a rasale-daxile I The voters got
on to the new game of Ping Pongf
The biggest surprise waa the defeat of
Wm. Ounther for Clerk by A. W. Man
ring. Republicans are responsible for
the defeat of their County Clerk, one of
the most faithful and conscientious men
who ever held the position in this
County. Of courae hit friends con
sidered him safe, but they overlooked
the fact that he waa up against a pop
ular man a man who makes friends
wherever he goes. Then it was prob
ably the order all along the line among
Republicans who supported Daly that
the Democratic Clork must be elected
or the Democratic County Court could
not have full sway.
It is no UHe taking up the timo to
figure out "how it happened " It just
happened, and that's all.
The table giving the election returns
will be found on this page. There may
be a few corrections to be made, but it
it about correct.

A Washington dispatch under date of
May 28th, says that the proposition to
lease the public lands for graiing pur
poses, which has been investigated at
some length by the House Committee,
on May 28thr went over indefinitely and
will not be considered again at this ses
sion. The subject was to have been
finally disposed of to-day, but the com
mittee coucluded that it would be well
before taking any action, to allow public
opinion to mature on the plan. Before
this decision was reached Representa
tive Bell of Colorado opposed the plan,
on the ground that it would bring to a
halt the homestead entry of lands.

Ex-Oovernor of Oregon Pased
Away Suddenly at His Home
In Portland Saturday.
Sylvester Penooyer, Governor of Ore
gon from 1884 to 181M, c ied suddenly of
heart trouble at his home in Portland
on the afternoon of May 31st. He wat
found by bis wife lyign on the floor of
the library, dead. Deceased was the
eighth Governor of the state of Oregon.
He waa the son of a New York farmer, :
born July 6, 1831. He graduated from.
Harvard law school aiid came to Oregon
in 1855. He was a gifted political
writer, an able lawyer, and a most pe
culiar and eccentric man. In 188tt he
was eiecled as a Democrat to the Gov
ernorship of Oregon by 40U0 majority
when the balance of the slate ticket
went Republican by 10,000. fie waa
re-elected in 1890 by an increased ma
jority. A an executive officer he waa
noted for his determined positions on
natters of state and national impor
tance, and in general by his positive
and independent attitudes. During bit
first term be gained the reputation oi
being the laborers' friend by refusing to
suppress rio'iag railroad laborers oi -the
Oregon Pacific railroad until their
managers bad paid the employee the .
wages which were doe them. In 1391
he attracted attention from ail over the
nation by refusing to meet President -Harrison
at the State line when the
latter visited Oregon, remarking at , tha .
time that if the President wanted to see
him tie could do eo by calling at his
office in the Bute Capitol. He alao,
came to the front during Grover Clev
eland's administration by refusing to,
take the advice of the President in re- -
lation to the suppression of railroad
strikes. At that time he telegraphed
President Cleveland the famous mes
sage: "1 will attend to my business;
let the President attend to his."
He was elected Mayor of Portland i n
18, and after bis term of otiice expired
he retired to pilvate life.
PEACE IN SOUTH AFRICA.
The theory was commonly accepted in

the two governments have been agreed
upon . The last draft of terms ? as sent
to the Boer delegates at Pretoria 1 last -Saturday
and was such that the British
Cabinet knew it would be acceptable.
The conditions were lramed with the
object of making then so satisfactory to '
the burghers that they could not be set
aside. King Edward has been most in
sistent that the war be terminated before
bis coronation, and it was due largely to '
his efforts and influence that the cabinet .
made the concessions that it has grant
