About this time in every presidential canvass some featherhead, after "making an impartial investigation of the politi cal field,' predicts that the Democratic party is going to sweep the country. He and other featherheada repeat the performance often aferward until the voting takes place. Bryan predicted at least a score of times daring the cam paign of 1896 that he vu going to 'sweep the held." Henry George de clared altoui the middle of the canvass that Bryan was sure to carry pretty much every state in the Union except a few of the New England group. The prominence of Brother-in-law McLean in connection with the Dewey candidacy will impede the Admiral's chances for getting any consideration in the Kansas City Convention, if he ever had any chances. Even it he should get the nomination, his connection with McLean would hurt him in the canvass. Many persona would think that if Dewey were elected, the real president would be McLean, and that individual is so thoroughly distrusted ail over the country that he could not be elected alderman in any town in which he should reside. Dewey's boom is in bad iunds. Eki'iulicank all over the county are in harmony on all the issues. Those of New Jersey, in their Htate Convention to choose delegates at large to the Phila delphia Convention, gave a hearty in dorsement to ('resident McKinley, not only on the issues which were at the front at the time of his nomination four years ago, "but in the wisdom and ex alted statesmanship with which be has dealt with the new and complex prorV lems of great National consequence which have since arisen." Practically all the state conventions which have been held have taken the same ground. Thb woman suffrage proposition has few advocates in this county. In fact, throughout the state, as near as we can form u idea in regard to the matter by scanning our exchanges, the question is discussed as little as it is here. The women advocates, so far as we have seen, belong to that element which is continuously tramping around the coun try, lecturing on woman's rights and kindred subjects, to avoid, their plain duty to home and family, One can always judge their business by their apt pearance. Their dresses are seen to strike fhein sqmew)iere between their knees and the tops of their shoes; their voices sound like a pat tight, aud their physiognomy would frighten a cyclone, Voman suffrage won't get one hundred pffirmutive VQtei in Columbia romitv. UNDESIRABLE AMENDMENT. There is one amendment to the con? stitution of Oregon the voters will 1 called upon to decide upon at the com ing election, which needs to be well studied. It deals with the pernicious sys tem of running the public Into debt. The amendment abrogates tha present sec tion of the State Constitution which provides that no county shall incur an indebtedness exceeding in the aggregate sum of 15000, and in its stead proposes to substitute a section that shall extend the limitation of indebtedness to cities, school districts and mttnitiipnl corpora tions, as well a counties, so that their aggregate indebtedness shall not ex ceed 6 per cent of the taxable property therein. Now, how will this amend ment effect Columbia county T In spite of the fact that the law with regard to the $5000 indebtedness of counties is a dead letter the indebtedness of Co lumbia comity at the present time is about $30,000 the proposed amendment will give power to our couuty otliuiata to increase the indebtedness of the county to $72,600? Are the taxpay ers in favor of that? Take, for in stance, any of our towns or school dis tricts, the county could incur an indebt edness of 5 per cent on taxable prop erty, the city could do the same, the school district could add another 5 per cent. Now, that it is piling on the agony too much. It is just as well to ask "where we are at" and open our eyes to the promised conditions. Going into debt is certainly not to be thought of being restricted, for that would be almost as serious a condition as though we were permitted to incur au immenso indebtedness. The thought or intima tion of repudiation is not to be tolerated, but at the same time we believe we can see in the proposed amendment to the State Constitution very undesirable results. Thk recent aetionof the United States Senate in refusing to seat a number of boodlera who were pressing their claims because of an appointment by some governor, will not have a very eucour againg etlect upon proceedings of a sim ilar nature in the future. The first act of the Senate to merit commendation occurred a short time ago, when H. W. Corbett, of Portland, was sent home from Washington with a bug in his ear and the buzz of the Senatorial bee in his bonnet considerably silenced. The House then refused a seat to Polygnmist Roberts, of Utah. Later the Senate sent the California man home to pro cure, if possible, an honorable election. Then Mr. Clark, of Montana, got his case wound up and touched off with such beautiful embellishments as to impress upon his mind the fact that "boodle" appointments and elections would not be listened to or counte nanced by the Senate. The crowning jewel in the casket of Senatorial gems was placed when Boss and Boodler Mat Quay, of Pennsylvania, was refused a seat in the Senate Chamber. If Legis latures cannot elect a Senator the Sen ate had better very quickly adopt a constitutional amendment allowing the masses of the people to have a whack at the Senatorial .election proposition. The House has adopted such an amend ment by an overwhelming majority, and the Senate could do itself enviable credit bv an instantaneous concurrence in the House's action. The fusion-for-office element feel as if they had "gone up against it" when the prosperity that is seen on every hand is mentioned to them. When a popnlist asks you to vote his ticket or any part of it, just ask him, what for? He will not tell yoa that their advocated prin ciples are calculated to produce any good etlect upon the business of the country. It IN INTO A HORNETS NEST. The Tacoma News recently denounced Henry Watterson, of the Louisville Courier-Journal, for his advocacy of ex pansion. Watterson then proceeded to walk all over the News man's carcass in the following style: "It is a sad arraignment. It is the sad der coming from Tacoma. One can read by misty light it affords why that beauti ful townsite that erstwhile had such glowing hopes with snow-capped Rain ier towering above it and the crystal wa ters of the incomparable inland sea sweeping by it remains but a townsite and not yet a city by a dam site." Bold, brave, self-confident men make great citieB ; men who persue the truth in the stars ; men who see the truth in the dawn of day and who follow it morn ing, noon and night; not men who feed on the dry bones of dead languages and hug themselves stark and cold in the shadow of exploded ideas. Alas, for Tacoma ! Up with the banners of Seat tle, and let the ball go on until there is an hourly ferry-boat plying between the wharves and docks of Paget sound and wharves and docks of the China sea, the stars and stripes making a perpet ual meteor from shore to shore. Why should this involve a surrender of our liberties? Why should it mean the death of the republic? How does it "controvert and ignore the teachings of Jefferson and Jackson"? Did not Jefferson take Louisiana, Creoles, nig gers, Frenchmen, Indians, and all with out saying "by your leave," or "blast your eyes," or any other politeness? Did lie not stick bis hand into the treas ury up to his arm-pits and take out fifteen millions of the people's money to pay to the tyrant Napoleon? Has not the intervening century vindicated his forecast and justified his lawless proceeding? Did not Jackson fairly wallow in imperialism, as the saying went in those davs, down in Florida whilst he aas walloping whoever came in his way, confirming to his country a possession of the fairest the sun shone upon? Did he not foreclose Texas through his next friend, Polk, confirm ing the democratic policy of national expansion, so that no man can misread it? Who is Bryan that he should be cited and be set up against Jefferson and Polk yea, and Pierce and Buchanan and that we should be admonished from a perch for bats and owls away out in darkest Tacoma, of our falsity to demo cratic policies and traditions? Out upon it!" Ies Tills Mrlke VauY Muddy Complexions and Nauseating Breath from chronic constipation.

ONE GOOD AMENDMENT, There is one amendment to the State Constitution to be voted on at the June election which we endorse. It Is known as the "Irrigation" amondiueut, but its title fails to convey to the public mind the genuine value of such a law. The explanation of the proposed amoudment is lucidly given below in a clipping taken from The Columbia River and Oregon Timberman : "The time has arrived in the state of Oregon when legislation relative to a right-of-way bill, permitting timber to be logged without "holding up" those engaged in the business, should be dis cussed. There is no question so vital to the permanent success of the lumber businuss as an adequate and equitable method for getting the logs cheaply to market. The present bill allowing the use of a portion of a county road for logging purposes is only a makeshift. The dog-iu-the-manger policy which is pursued by the owners ot a strip of land, in many cases absolutely valueless, which must be crossed, is a travesty upon justice and a stigma upon the in telligence of the lumbermen ot the state who have not taken sufficient in terest to see that suitable legislation is devised to remedy this abuse. The Supremo Court of Oregon, in a recent opinion, affecting the u.e of dams, has cleared the ground of uncertainty effect ing navigable or floatable streams and established, clearly, the rights of ail parties who may be compelled to utilise these natural outlets. This, doctrine is in accordance w ith the advanced opini ons of courts of lust resort in other tim bered states. The Supreme Court ot Washington has held substantially the same doctrine. Washington ha; gone farther and passed a right-of-way bill affecting the use and condemnation of land where it becomes necessary for building logging roads." Such au amendment is calculated to have desirable and valuable effect upon our lumbering and logging industry, and any legislation or constitutional amendments calculated to aid in the work of converting our forests into cash should be endorsed and adopted. THE BOSS QUACK. Done Administered to Pony Popu lism in Kansas. In his Kansas Day speech Ed Hoch told about a quack doctor w ho mixed all his remedies in a big black bottle and gave a dose of it to each patient, no matter what his ailment. lie then ap plied his illustration in this wise: "And so these quack doctors of pop ulism have an old black liottle which is now in my possession w hich I desire to properly label and turn over to George Martin tonight for permanent preserva tion among the curios of the state his torical collection. Into it they first dumped the Omaha and Ocala platforms. Then Emery's infamous 'Seven Consnir acies'was dumped in. Then Ignatius Iktnnellv's 'Rotten Caesar's Column of Putrid Human Skeletons' went in. then Edward Bellamy, fascinating upas 'Looking backward' went in. Then S. S. King's - hateful 'Bondholders and Breadwinners' went in. Then M. S. Scott's silly 'Sub-treasury' went in. Then Later Commissioner Todd's 800 lie that Kansas farming doesn't pay, went in. Then Doeter's "Socialistic Heresies' went in. Then a job lot of octopuses and red dragons went in. Then the now penitent Peffer'a $20,000, 000 red, white and blue aluminum uni versity was thrown in. Then Otis' seven billion silk paper absolute go-to-the-penitentiary-it- you- don't -take-it money went in. Then John Davis' in terminable anti-fat statistics went in. Then Jerry Simpson's proposition that we make a geological survey of the mountains and base our monetary sys tem on the ore in the mountains went in. Then Dunsmore's bald pate with the revised arithmetic was thrown in. Then Breidenthall's Topolobampo tom foolery went in. Then General Arm's gasoline gun and gorgeous uniform went in. Then 'Senator' Martin's 'time-honored principles,' badly deiapidated, went in. Then Webb McNali's fleet-footed 'old Fluke' went in. Then the scrap iron and imaginary rolling stock of the aurora- horealis- no-terminal -at-either-end railroad went in. Then a lot of pnssy cat scandals went in. Then Mrs. Lease's celebrated anti-corn remedy went in. Then other fiat remedies too numerous to mention, as the sale bills say, went in. Then all the other idio cies the human mind is capable of con juring went in. Then the old bottle was labeled 'shake well before taking.' And they said the Goddess of Liberty was was sick, and heaven knows she was by this time, the Kansas part of it, at least, though we now know, in fact, we've known all the time, she was suf fering more from doctors than disease. And these quack doctors couldn't agree what was the matter with her; so they held her in their unholy embrace and forced their old black bottle to her lips and 'doped' her with that infernal enbalming fluid. And then even our best medicine men got bewildered for awhile, and held a consultation, and in desperation asked each other 'What's the matter with Kansas?' Matter enough. Too much matter.

Reliable and Influential, Senator J. II, Gallinger, Chairman on the Comtiittte on Pensions, says : "I am very fond of Senator' Mo Bride. I came in contact with him imme diately after he eame to the Senate aud formed a warm attachment for him, so that I naturally noticed his work. 1 feel that tor this reason, I may speak with some degree of authority. As I recall the circumstances, two leading: commit' tees on which be has membership, are those of Commerce, and the Philippine Committee. He was very fortunate to secure membership on the uommlttee on Commerce during his first term, and the probilities are that a new Senator from the state would not be eon ally for tunate. The Committee on the Philip pines is regarded as one of the first committees of the Senate, and to my knowledge there were applications for membership on the committee on the part ot more thiui twice as many Sena tors as could be accommodated. The state mav well congratulate itself that Senator Mcltride secured a placo on the committee. "I came in contact with Senator Mo Bride on the Committee on Commerce, and can vouch for the fact that he is regarded as one of the moat reliable and influential members. He is constant in his attendance at the meetings, mid never misses an opportunity to urge measures that are of advantage to tiie State of Oregon and the Pacific slope generally. So far as my observation goes, I can vouch for the fact that he is regarded as a man of good judgment, sound view and a safe leader. He is direct in all his methods, and absolutely free from pretense and double-dealing. Taken all in all, we have few meu in the Senate who would be more missed than Senator McBride, and while I disclaim any purpose of interfering with the po litical affairs of his state, I will venture to express an earnest hope that his party may not make the serious mis take of failing to re-nominate him, I admire his integrity aud fearless in dependence." Worked Both Ways. A preacher once said; "You editors dare not tell the truth, if you did you could not live. Your newspapers would lie a failure." The editor replied : "You are right; and the minister who will at all times tell ttie bare trutn about members alive or dead, will not occupy the pulpit more than one Sun day and will find it necessary to leave town in a hurry. The press and the pulpit go together with the whitewash brush and kind words, making little virtues into big ones. The pulpit, press and grave stones are the saint making triumvirate." And the great minister went away looking thoughtful, the editor turned to his work, telling about the surpassing beauty of the bride, when, in fact, she was ugly as a mud fence. The old missionary brig, Pitcairn, has sailed from San Francisco for Cape Nome and is the first craft of the season to leave for the Dew gold fields. The Pitcairn has about 200 tons of freight stowed away in her hold and on deck, and there is almost half as much again on the wharf for which she cannot find room. About fifty men have taken passage on h r, nearly all of them going to seek gold. The captain ettimatcg that he will receive about $15,000 for his cargo and jiossengers. It is reported that he paid but 15000 for the brig, so that if he has good fortune on the voy age his venture ought to be a prosper ous one. Skin Diseases.
