To Register Voters.
County Ciork Iloland is preparing
his blanks and books for the biennial
registration of tho voters of the
county. The sovoral precinct regis
ters aio now ready as Is tho largo
office register, and a largo quantity
of blanks Is held In preparation to
send out to notaries public and Jus.
tlces of the peaco (or tho purposo of
registering those voters who aro un
able to oomo to tho clerk's offlco to be
listed. The registration begins on
the first Monday in January next
Monday and continues until Ma)
IS. when the books close. This Is
two weeke before the election and all
voters who have not registered up
to that time will be oompelled to
bring wltneeees at the timo of the
etecllon and swear In their votes.
Tills is alwayn troublesome and
eumbersoroe. and It Is much easier tn
register than to make proofs at the
polls, and proper registration of all
voters within the time llmle May 16
relieve the Judges of election of a
large amount of work and prevents
a blockade at the polls.
It Is expeoted that the registration
will be greater this coming year than
In the peet. owing to U fact that
the trorUkma at the law are now
better undewood, and tke value of
this regulation Is appreciated by the
voters. A full reelstratlOB before the
hooka clow Jn May Is greatly to be
desired, and with an offleer In eaeh
of the outlying preelaets to register
those who eanuet personally come to
the o&UHly seat, there should be few
men left In the county unregistered

Salem's Select
A largo gang of tramps, numbering
ovor 35, Is encamped In the pasture of
a. P. Litchfield, In the southwestern
portion of tho city, nnd during the
day time the gang scatters through
out the city begging and stealing all
Hint can be secured. The camp In the
woods Is deserted during the hours
of dny-llght, but after darkness oemea
the hoboB gather there, and propnre
a feast from tho remains of their
stolen nnd begged plunder. Yeter
day Tlie Journal stated that Captain
lloss, In Yew Park, had lost a mini-
bor of line ohlokena at tho hands of
this gang, and this morning the steal

In the Yew York neighborhood Is re

The victims of tho band of Idle loaf
ors are getting as weary of theso dep
redations, as aro tho tramps them
solves whon work Is ode rod thorn.
Bfforts aro being made by tho resi
dents of Yow Park to rid themselves
of theso unwolcomo' neighbors, and It
is possible that tho crowd will bo
rounded up and made to seek other
Quarters. As their camp Is situated
within tbo limits of tho city, It might
bo posslblo to run In tho crowd, and
placo them on tho work gang on tho
streets scraping up mud, and tho In
vostmont would be a good one, for
their board would scarce cost tho city
as muoh as their work for the good
of tho community would amount to,
asldo from the faot that the depreda
ilonB on tho hen roosts of Yow Park
would ceaso, and the residents of that
section would be relievea irom
further troublo at tho hands of the
tramps A doso of work on the streets
or on tho rock-pile would result in a
decrease of the visitation of tramps
to this elty, for they would shun Balem
