Miss Ncwland's. - At the close of the
former term, Mr. Good an 4 Miss New-
land took it m their wise heads to give
a sort of basket sociable, interspersed
with exercises from their respective
rooms, said baskets to be sold to the
highest bidder as a means of raising
additional funds toward the new school

(From oDaily, Jan. ijth.)
The new registration law tinder the
terms of which all voters in the county
are compelled to register with ' the
county clerk, is proving a most un
wieldy affair, and it is doubtful if all
voters in Marion county can be regis
tered, as contemplated by law. within
the time specified. County Clerk W.
W. Hall and one deputy are kept bnsy
almost their entire time in registering
voters, and they are continually crowd
ed : when not listing those presenting
themselves at thecounter for registra
tion, they enter1 up the reports of no
taries public and justices of the peace
from the surrounding towns, and . here
they find their greatest trouble. "It
takes double the time to enter on the
clerk's record books those voters reg
stering before justices of tha peace or
notaries public, and the work in this
way is not at all satisfactory. .
Thus far only about 400 persons have
registered, some of these havfng ;ap-
pearcd bjefore justices and notaries in'
the county towns. Among the latter,
report ' was yesterday ; received from
justice of the Peace crank L. Pound
who sent in the registrations of twenty-!
five residents of Aumsville. A number
were also sent in from Silverton and
some from Turner.
Among those appearing arc many who
fire ; naturalized citizens, and V in some
'-rases they are unable to produce thei
-roof of their having become natural-j
ized. Other cases there are of men whoj
came to the United states, when ehild--cn.
and whose parents became citizens.
These persons i have no copies of the
naturalization papers of their parents,'
hence it is an open question as to
whether they arc entitled to register
tnder the new law. These person
ire unquestionably citizens under the
federal iand sate laws, but " under "thej
.cgistration- act, as interpreted in many
I'tartcrs. are not eligible . to rcgistra-f
rion. The Corvallis Times, of last
Tuesday.' in discussing this matter, cite
several instances which can be dupln
ated in every portion of the state.
The Times says :
"There is much discussion about
town over the effect of the registra
lion law on ' naturalized voters whose
papers . have been lost. There art
many such. It is estimated that 10 to
t5 per cent, of the voters of the state
have been naturalized and can not pro
duce their papers.
"There the many queer instances.
One voter was naturalized at Cincin
nati in 1855. He has been voting .ever
since. That was forty-five years ag.
He knows the date, place and court jn
which he was naturalized, and can
readily give these, particulars. But to
cap the climax, in a great fire in Cin
cinnati some years ago, the county
records were destroyed," and he can
not get the transcript of their record
which would entitle him to registra
tion. Still he is a legal voter, but the
registration lay apparently puts him
under the Jan.
"The case of D. C. Rose is not less
queer. He was a child when he came
to America. His father became natur
alized, and that act made 'Mr. Rose, at
twenty-one, a citizen. ; But Mr. Rose
has not his father's papers. He does
not know in what court the papers were
taken out. His father is dead. Ac
cordingly he, cannot, because he cannot
produce legal evidence of his father's
naturalization, get his name on the
registration books, at lest for the pres
ent. Still, in the- civil war, Mr. Rose
fought bravely in the Union armjr.
He risked his life' and impaired his
health in the struggle for the preser
vation of the union of the states. But
the law, before it permits him to reg
ister, requires him to produce papers
that he cannot produce. '
"All over Cprvallis, probably all
over Benton county, and all ovct the
state, there are similar instances. On
account of its rank injustice, there are
few, if any, who believe that the rc
auircmcnljrftbfilaw will stand. Clerk
Watteris waitirur,Ptiently for a fa
vorable decision, and hoping that, when
the decisions : come they will break
down the barriers that now practically
ostracise some of our best citizens."

that country, and does not hesitate to
say it is all that is claimed lor it. tie
savs Dawson City is the liveliest town
he wai ever in, and the amount of gold
that is brought in from the Surround
ing mines is tremendous. ; It- must be
seen to be believed. Mule train alter
mule train comes in loaded down with
gold dust very day. He has seen trains
of twelve and fourteen mulesi come in
during the past season loaded with an
average of 300 pounds of gold dust to
the mule, which, is the product of one
single claim. Of course, this is an ex
ception, but he says' there re many
claims of that kind near Dawson.
"Considering the great ! distance
which supplies must be carried, living
there is very reasonable, and the va
riety of eatables is all that could be de;
sired by anyone. All ; kinds f of vege
tables -and meats can be secured now.
and also a great many delicacies of
which outside people nave not the

(From Daily, Jam 13th.)
. ProL J. IL Ackcrman, superintendent
of public instruction, yesterday sent out
several circular letters to all county
superintendents in Oregon. One of
these calls attention to the fact that
teachers examinations for state papers
will be held in each county on Feb
ruary 14th to 17m inclusive. The following-paragraphs
are taken from the
letter: I . . . . . -
"Questions arc to be submitted to the
applicants by the county superintendents
and not by the county boards t ex
aminers. Each superintendent will de
termine the place of holding the ex
amination in his respective county. I
would suggest, however, that the place
most convenient for the greatest num
ber of applicants by selected.,
"The law reauires tfaat I shall deposit
the full amount of fees for state papers
with the state treasurer; hence, tne tuu
amount must be' remitted to this oihee.
Manuscripts will not be sent to the
examiners until the fee -ha been re
"Notice of the examination must, be
given through the press at least ten
davs before the examination.".
The examination -will be held com
mencing Wednesday, February 14th, at
0 0 clock a. m., and continuing unti
Saturday, February 17th. at 4 p. m., and
the following order will be observed
Wednesday Penmanship,, history,

Thursday Written arithmetic, theory
of' teaching, grammar,- bookkeeping,

Saturday Botany, plane geometry,
general history, English literature,
Another letter issued by Supt. Acker
man deals with the district clerks and
ccunty superintendents reports, urging
greater are in compiling them, as fol
lows: I . " .
''Whilr examining the annual reports
of superintendents,.! wa-s led to believe
that there is a misunderstanding, on thc
Iart of some superintendents, as to just
what isvrequired in the -financial statc
mcrrt; he)nce I call your attention to the
same, atthrs time, so that you can in
struct your, clerks, if you have not al-
rcntiv none so.
i "One of the difficulties seems to be
in item 29. Item 20 represents the
whole amount of school . funds in the
hands of 'district clerks at the time of
making their last reports and should
tally, exactly witJi the sum of item aS of
their last reports. That is to sav . item
48 of your last report becomes item 20
of your next report, or 5. .; . . .. If item
29 of your next report is not $. .... .
your report will not.be correct: hence
the necessity of your clerks understand
ing this thoroughly: for it is the sum
of; items 20 in their reports that makes
item 20 of your -report. I speak of this

WASHINGTON; IS N0T TYPICAL
No Other American Cl'tty Bears Rc
semblance to the? Capital. - j
Washington city is ot. the United
States. It is not a 3 represcntativq
American city." Its population is not
svoical. There is' no fcomracrce iii
Washineton. There isl no- manufacti
uring in Washington. There are nq
targe mercantile houses in Jvashuig-s
ton. It is a city, largely made up1 of
drones from the idle Attaches of lcgai
tions to the young army officers with!
soft thine; from the yawning gov-f
ernment clerks, who kill flics , witli
rulers. 6 the lazy nefcrocs who loafi
and sleep and snore in khe naileries of.
conarrcss. It is a city of. people wiih-l
but homes except . for'f the new rich,j
who seek there "stkial standing"
which they could not iittain in moret
settled communities. It is a city " of;
hoarding houses, inhabited by men
and women who live in abject fear of;
losing their government Jobs. There
are other kinds of houses than board-!
ine houses thcreV I - '
Ihere is probably mqre lewd living
in Washington than in any city of its
size in the country. When the- l!,d-
;munds law against: illegal cohabitation
was passed for the benefit of the Utah
Mormons the first case under it- was1,
surprise. It cant e iva in Washing
ton, which, being Federal territory,1
also came under this Federal law.. A
young army officer who had .installed
a young woman as liisf mistress was
ndicted .by her father, and threatened
with a felon's cell. Bui Washington
public opinion was scandalized not at
the offense, but-at:the prosecution. So
the young officer wasUpullcd through,
and the matter husheil up. Several
moral laws intended for -the uncouth
Mormons, in Utah would never do for
daoocr army officers in Washington.
Its opinions on politics are as lofty as
ts . opinions on morals. Washington
has no politics. It is always ."for the

Mr. Jones is a m'Hiclan of consid
