It is a little singular that the Mor
mon lenders are all democratic with
one exception, Daniel II. Wells,
foi mer counselor to Ilriglmm Young,
and If their demand for statehood
should be granted, another staunch
iloniocratlc comnionweiilth would

llut this "irruption of the doths"
into the democratic conclaves is
evidence that tin-. sectaries are
awaking to an Interest in national
alllihs. Tills Is encouraging on the
face of It; but tho Mormon followers
are so alien In their sympathies, and
so devoted In their allegiance to "a
foiclgn potentate," that they are un
promising material for American
ficomon, and are really not tit for
the exorcise of .a citizen's rights.

NOTICE OF FINAL SETTLEMENT.
LANDS AND HOMES
Afnrlon county is situated In the

the overcrowded suites, where cold
winters and hot summers, with
terrible cyclones, prevail, wM
comes to the coast with some
means, advantages that no other
county in Oregon possesses.
Much has been written of tills
western country that requires a
stretch of the imagination to com
prehend, and numerous complaints
ire heard from the class who have
been misled by them, so in this
brief sketch the writer desires to
avoid exageration as to its present
and prospective advantages, asking
those in the east into whose hands
tliis may fall-particularly those
who have their eyes directed towards
this coast to peruse it carefully,
feeling that It is not written to lure
immigrants within its borders, but
onlv as a truthful dlscriptiou of a
land which, if it does not "flow
milk and honey," contains within
Its boom wcaltli and resources equal
to any other country on the Pacific
side of the Rocky mountains.
Marion county is bounded on the
north by the Willamette river and
Hutte creek which separates it from
Clackamas county; on the cas-t by

his summer work. And yet tlu
low lands are much preferred b
many; the yield per acre is generally
greater, anil lierhaps less lalwr is re
