A COIIUUTT 11AI..I.OT.
Ah tlio tumult of the recent polltl
cnl contest rolls nway, bo Hint par
ticular parts of tjio Held can .,bc
scanned, it becomes more and more
evident that ithc cash purchase of
votes was an enorjuous factor iij the
election. The press of the smaller
cities ami towns, of both political
parties, (cems with particular in
stances of buying by wholesale and
retail. The Watertown Times (re
publican) judges that something
over :!00 votes were bought in that
city at an average price of ?20 each.
''lJoth parties," it says, "went into
it apparently by mutual consent."
So openly was the trnlllc carried on
that boasts were- made by both buy
ers and sellers, tho former of their
success in getting wliat they paid
for, tho latter of their smartness In
gotting a month's wages for n day's
work, or rather for a day's idleness.
Tho Watertown Times very justly
observes that for every vote bought
tills year two must bo bought next
time, and that tlio price will rise in
proportion to tlio importune.) of the
election, ai)d that unless a stop is
put to tho practice, the llcpubllo
will cease to exist.
What is hnpoitant in such a crisis
is not to tlx responsibility upon one
party or the other, but to take steps
to buvo the fiibiio of government
ftoin swift destruction. We are in
deed, at (ho turning of tho ways.
If wo go as wo are going, the insti
tutions that wo piie so highly will,
in a few years, be submerged in cor
ruption. The contagion of vote
buying and vote-soiling will spread
and Increase until elections will
cease to havo any political signifi
cance; the national policy will be at
tho disposal of the largest purse.
No condition moro hideous can bo
imagined. Popular respect for pop
ular institutions will dwindle away
and gradually eetiM) to exist: young
men and women will glow up to re
gaid government as the prize of bri
bery; the moral tie that binds socie
ty together will be unloosed.
Tlio voto should bo held to bo
it is tho distinguishing budge of
a five man. Tho responsibility is mi
great, that it does not cease with
tho dropping of the ballot into tlio
box. It goes beyond that. War
may result, thousands of lives may
bo sacillUvd, millions of treasure
destroyed, towns and villages may
bo desolated and tho country be
come bankrupt through the easting
of votes by men who accept bribes.
Even there the ell'eet of thu pur
chased ballot docs not cud, for when
the briber and bribed lay rotting In
their graves; thejr children and
children's children miller from the
Infamous act of a (lodforakuii and
dishonorable wretch, with, Jiving In
a free country, bartered his freedom
for n mesa of pottage. If wo could
havo our way, tlio briber and bribed
should ho. branded In such a man
ner that everyone should hoo tho
"mark of Cain" upon thorn ami re
fuse to trust them, liellovo in their
word, or have dealings In any shajH)
with mon w thoroughly lost to honor.

thinking people, ought to bo protoe.

Now is the time to strike. Salem
has, nn opportunity to bq something.
Will she,, do, it? A shorf. time, ntjo
a railroad company proposed tp, the
the, people, of. Spokane Falls, thnt.if
they would raise the company ono J
hundred and fifty thousand dollars
that said. company would run the
road to the Falls. In three dnys
the money was raised and iusldo of
threq months property doubled in
valuation. The prosperity of no in
land town ever has exceeded It and
it still g'ows and becomes more
prosperous every day. Albany se
cured the O. P. Road by n subsidy
and will secure the woolen mill un
less Salem takes hold promptly and
nets. The opportunity lost can
never be regained. If our business
men men who have nn interest
in the town will lend till properly
the amount can be raised in a few
dnys. Will they do It? jSow Is tlio
time to act. A story is told of a
poor man who lost his horse all he
had to earn bread for himself
and family. His neighbors gath
ered around to console and feel
sorry for him. . At last a practical
man among them took of his hat
and said: "I. feel sorry for our
neighbor, very sorry and I have no
doubt you all feel as sorry as I do."
Then thruwing live dollars in tho
hat says: I feel sorry five dollars
worth. How much sorry do you
feel?' And passed tho hat to each of
tho lookers on. He soon gathered
enough to buy a new horse and sent
tlio poor man on his way rejoicing.
Every man in the city should feel
public spirit enough to subscribe hs
proportion for tlio woolen mill and
leave margin enough to cover up
tho deficit of those who are too little
to help hi this good cause.
COKNKK GHOmniY MUST GO.
The St. Louis Republican, one of
the leading journals of the West has
become very emphatic on the liquor
question. It claims that the saloon
element controls the city politics,
and says the corner grocery with
its saloon attached must go. For,
continues its leading editorial, every
corner grocery, as will readily bo
seen, has a good many mon on its
books, and how many of these will
let his vote staud between him and
his living? Not many, it is safe to
say; and so tho aggregate of votes
Inllucnced by these places must
roach an astonishing figure. There
nro, in round numbers, 800 corner
groceries with saloon attachment in
St. Louis. Lot us suppose that eacli
of these iutluences n do.cu votes
though that number Is probably far
too small and wo havo a grand to
tal of nearly 10,000 votes absolutely
oontiolled by these doggeries. That
is a sulllcient number to elect or de
feat any man who might bo nom
inated for aiiyollleo in tlio city, ac
cording to tho soverlgn will of tho
beer bosses, nnd against tho most
strenuous efforts of the respectable
element. It looks somewhat dis
couraging, it must bo confessed, on
tho faco oflt, to tnko up tho cudgels
against such n Titanic evil. Rut
thcio Is one weapon It cannot with
stand tho Law. Tho law Is still
supreme and it will prevail. Tho
comer grocery, with saloon attach
ment, must go.
By tho Australian plan of voting
tho tiekctB, which nro printed by
the state nnd furnished to tho voters,
have on them tho names of all tho
candidates. A man who is entitled
to voto Is given one of these, and In
a compartment where no ono can
see him be erases tho names of those
to whom ho is opposed. If he can
not read ho makes atlldavltto that
clU'Ct, and then two sworn scruti
neers take him to another private
room, read over to him tho names,
and then hu scratches oil" whichever
ho pleases. Tho men swear that
thoy will keep secret what ho has
done, No fault has been found with
the workings of tho system thus far
except by those who wero iu tho
habit of buying voters aud who
liked to know that thoy got tho
goods they purchased.
Somk people are u little anxious
about fuel for tho future, and a vast
number of people iu Kansas, Ne
braska ami Dakota almost perish
for want of coal or rather for want
of souse. They nro people who if

of tea to drink. Millions of tons

A witiTKK who has been in
Japan for five years says: "The
first month I was in Yokohama I
was invited to a stnto bail. There
were about 1,000 ladies present and
of this number only three were in
foreign dress, I was at another of
those balls this year, nnd there were
only three ladies in Japanese cos
tunic. The Japanese women look
a good deal prettier in their native
dres. They are too small to look
well in American costume."
An unmarried man recently drew
a crisp new live dollar bill out of the
bank. A happy thought .struck
him, and he wrote an ardent love
in ii. r. !i l.. m... !..i.
letter across the face of it in blue hit
and signed his initials and address.
Then he spent the five. By Thurs
day Inst he had received fourteen
answers, many of tliqra enclosing
photographs. He will marry one
of them (not the photographs, but
the original of one of theni) early

E. O. Norton informs the Port
laud News "that tho state has pur
chased 800 acres of thq L. M. Savage
claim nt Salem. With the 400 ncrcs
already owned by the state, this
will give a total of 1200 ncres in one
body, which will be ample for the
state prison, insane asylum, school
for deaf mutes and other institu
tions. It is understood that the
prico pnid,xwas $90 per acre". It is
possible that this tract has been
bonded, subject to purchase when
the legislature meets. Dame rumor
snys bucIi is the case, but fncts nro
not get-at-able. It is true the state
hns uso for tho land and tho pur
chase would bo ono of wisdom.
