St. 1Ie!.knb, November 11, 1892. THS GENERAL RESULT. Though it is sufe to conclude that : Cleveland fa elected, says Wednesday morning's Oregonian, it is impossible At the hour o( writing to compute his electoral majority or to indicate all the states that contribute to it. He has the South, except Delaware, which is republican, and West Virginia, which Si in doubt. He has New York, New Jersey and probably Connecticut. In diana is still unsettled. The large democratic majority iu Chicago seems to have given hint Illinois. Wiecon 'in is very close. The other North western states are probably republican though the democrats claim seveu electors in Michigan. Beturns are alow from the fusion states. The pop' ulista claim Nebraska and Kansas, though the claim is not conoeded, California is democratic. , Here is substantial foundation for the democratic claim that Cleveland is elected, and it will have to stand until contradicted by positive informa tion. Out of so many Western states positively claimed for Cleveland and not successfully disputed by the re publicans, he is reasonably sure to get enough to give him the small margin he needs, with New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in addition to the nearly solid South. Beturns from congressional elections re still very incomplete, but it is cer tain that the house of representatives will be democratic by a much smaller majority than at present. Senators re to be elected in several of the states that seem to have been carried by the democrats. It is possible that elections by state legislatures this wiu ter may place the senate also in the control of the democrats and populists. At all events, they will secure it two years later. For the first time in 30 years the democrats will be in control of all departments of the government They will have full responsibility for its conduct, and will have to answer to the people for its administration, without the customary defense that they were hampered by republican obstruction in one or another depart ment.' . An item of unusual interest occurred at the polls in Drain, Douglas county. Boiier Brown, born July 3, 1792, being now over 100 years old, and a veteran of the war of 1812, was carried to the polls a distance of one mile, seated in a rudely constructed chair carrying in his hand the stars and stripes which floated over him, and preceded by the Drain brass band discerning national airs. Mr. Brown voted the whig ticket during the existence of that party since which time he has veted the re publican ticket and Tuesday cast his vote for Harrison. Had all republl cans been as loyal to the party the re sult would have been different. How ever, we must take the medicine even if wo don't like the doctor. CLEVELAND ELECTED. So Say the Latest Advices From All Parts of the Country. . Notwithstanding the fact that it was the expressed wish of the presi dent that the death of Mrs. Harrison should be regarded as a private be reavemenl and be unaccompanied by anv publio demonstrations, the state ment is made that as a result of a con ference between Mrs. Morton, wife of the vice-president, and Mrs. W. J, Foster, wife of the secretary of state, it has been agreed that the wives of the cabinet officers will wear mourn ing for 30 days, beginning last Sun day, and during that time will refuse all invitations to entertainments or at tendance upon places of public amuse ment. . ' A Salt to Try the Title of Lands. MUNICIPAL MONKEYING. The municipal manipulators of the destinies of the government of Fort land never seem to be satisfied unless opportunities are frequently presented for "monkeying" with either the fire or police department. Capt. E. W. Spencer, river pilot, was selected to take charge of the helm of the police department The "ship of state," so to speak, sailed along smoothly until it struck the White Chapel "rapids" in dense "fog," when Spencer seemed to have lost his chart and compass and rudder as well. The commission ers bad been "monkeying" with the fire department until it had become a sort of "chestnut," when they turned their attention to the police depart ment, and a nnmber of the gentlemen clothed with brass and an indefinite quantity of blue began to look and feel decidedly blue about the gills. Finally some 'of them were "mon keyed" off the force and .everything went merry as a marriage bell or a democratic ratification meeting for a time. Bnt the spirit of uneasiness again settled over the municipal cage and now the commissioners have sud denly "monkeyed" Chief Spencer ont of his job on the charge of "lack of necessary qualifications for the posi tion of present incumbent!" This all occurred last Monday night, and at the same meeting Capt. Charles H. Hunt was agreed upon to succeed Spencer, who assumed the duties of the office Tuesday, and the "monkey" show has again closed for a season. Poor fire department! Poor police department! Poor Portland I AFFLICTIONS OF BABIES. According to the New York Sun a mania has broken out in that city among mothers to name their babies in honor of the discoverer of this country. A Mrs. Schneider started it with her twin boy and girl, whom she named respectively Columbus and Co lumbia; Then others followed, and now the record bristles all over with these names. The opinion is expressed that the custom may be even more : i i of the immortal voyager is to be on every lip for a full year. More than a hundred infants are born in Chicago every day, and there is an estimate that 90 per cent, may become Colum ' buses and Columbias. .' This would make an amusing school-roll a ' few years hence. Perhaps after the elec tion the fashion will change. There 'are a good many Benjamins and G ro vers, and the opportunity is now pre sented for further affliction by idiotic mothers with the name Adlai. Think of loading upon an inoffensive baby boy the name of "Adlai, the Tired." Young man, make a note of this: Grass widows are not green. Texas Sif tings. ,' ' True, quite true J only biding their time to pluck the "greens. About the 1st of last month a suit was begun in the United States circuit court at Tacenia by William H. Young gainst the .Northern Pacific railroad company, to quiet title to a piece of land on the north bank 01 tne Colum bia river near Oak Point. This land is a part of an odd sec tion lying within the grant to the old Oregon Central railroad to Astoria,and also claimed by the Northern Pacific M be within its grant. If the North ern Pacific has a land grant between the Columbia river and Puget Sound, this would be within the overlap of the two grants. Alter the Oregon Central grant along the uncompleted part of the road to Astoria was forfeited by act of congress in 188o, the land depart ment at W ashington held that this land did not go to the Northern Pa cific, but reverted to the government, and accordingly threw it open to set tlement. The greater part of this overlap, amounting to about 30 town ships, has been taken either as pre emptions or homesteads or as timber claims, and the government has issued patents to the most of that taken. As this section of country embraces one of the finest timber belts in the North west, or in the world, the land is very valuable, and those who have settled upon or purchased the different tracts were greatly alarmed as well as sur prised when, about two years ago, the late Judge Sawyer, in a suit then pending in the United States court here, decided that all this land in the overlap of the two grants belonged to the Northern Pacific. This case was tried upon a stipulated statement of facts, but the statement was neither complete nor accurate, and the case was immediately appealed to the Uni ted States court, where it is now pend ing. The present suit was brought in Tacoma, on behalf of a hundred or more holders of the land, who contrib uted to the expense of trying in order that the titles to their lands may be settled ; and all the facts in the matter will be fully and fairly brought before the court. It is thought that the case can be tried in Tacoma in time to reach the court of appeals during the coming January term, and an effort will be made to have the case taken up in the supreme court of the United States next spring. The case is one upon which the fortunes of several hundred persons hang, and on account of tne value of the property involved and the legal points to be decided is of very general interest A Care for Khennaatlsoa.

The latest returns from all over the United States indicate Cleveland election beyond auy doubt 1 The peo ples party seem to have carried five states including Colorado 4, Idaho 3, Kansas 10, Nebraska 8, Nevada 3, and 4 out of the 13 votes of Minuesota total, 32. . ... . Illinois and Wisconsin are demo cratic, with Ohio very close. According to the latest estimate the electoral ool lege will stand : Cleveland 262, Har rison 150, Weaver 32. Necessary to a choice 223, giving Cleveland a clear majority of 40 over all. The democratic national committee issued the following bulletin from New York Wednesday : "Our advises justi fy the statement that the electoral vote of Michigan, and all of tho elec toral votes of Wiscousin and Illinois, in addition to those from New York, New Jersey, Indiana and Connecticut and those from the Southern states, will be cast for Cleveland and Steven son. This will make Zoa electoral votes in all. Thi indications are that California has gone democratic, thus giving Cleveland and Stevenson not less than 278 electoral votes." Just ss we go to press a report comes over the wire that Cleveland will have 300, Harrison 112 and Wea ver 32 votes in the electoral college. THE ELECTION IN OREGON, The State Gives Harrison a Plural ity of About 7,000. The returns are coming in slowly from all parts of the state, but'enough is known to indicate the election of the republican electors. Three hun dred and thirty-four precincts in Ore gon, including the completed returns of Multnomah, Washington and Yam hill counties, give Harrison 27,560, Cleveland 10,242, Weaver 20,972. In Columbia county the republican electors have a plurality over Pierce of 31, and a plurality over the remain ing three on the peoples ticket of 162 In Yamkill cou nty complete returns give Harrison 1469, Cleveland 682, Weaver 790, Bidwell 246, Nathan Pierce, the peoples candidate, 822 Nathan Pierce, democrat, 620.

In Clarke county the democrats elect the entire connly and legislative ticket In Cowlitz county the officers are about evenly divided between the two old parties. DELENA. Judge P. H.

Miss Ella Pax ton, known as the "Cow Girl of Texas Panhandle," re cently delighted a western audience with the following original production, which in her introductory remarks she styled a "paradox" on "Beautiful Snow." She also stated that it was "paradoxed" while sitting on ber horse on day herd, on her fathers ranch in the panhandle, situated about three miles from Mobolio, Texas : Oh, the steer, the beautiful steer, Kicking the fleas from the points of his ear. Flapping its tail in its frolicsome glee, Hopping about like a Bnak river flea, Bellowing! Boa ring I Thundering along! Killing the air with its steerical song, Till the rumble from Its lung-laden pits Scares timid jack-rabbits and wolves into fits. To me there i" nothing on earth half so dear As the lung-homed, slim-bodied Texican steer. i How often I wish that I was a steer, With a long shiny horn at the butt of each ear, With a clear, fearless eye and a tapering tail That would snap like a whip In ths mad' deninggale. How I'd beUerl And roar I And naw-OD ths around ! And lope over the hills with a thundering sonna, When I saw the wild cow boy pursuing my trace. And I'd laugh at his oaths as he fell to the rear.
