ELLENSBURG, WASH., SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1897. ELECTION THOUGHTS. The canvassing boards of the several slates having made their I returns, the aggregation <>f toe I votes at the presidential election shows the following poll: McKin ley 7,105),440; Bryan 6.508,681; Palmer 182,956; [severing 126,174; | Mitchett 2;},042; Bentley 13,320.1 MoKinley has a popular majority ol 293,807 —nothing to brng of nn- Ider the circumstances. His plu rality over Bryan ?s t>00,77t). Thl s plurality was a very costly one. No outsider will ever know the iig uros. They will be kept within the Hanna safe along side the 118,* 000's of notes. An enormous amount of money was spent by tbe Republicans. If the amounts poured into Kansas, Washington, and other silver states are a guide, each vote of this plurality cost well on towards a thousand dollars—a costly victor}' moneyvise, also a disgraceful one counting the ways and means of attaining it. In some states tbe aggregate Re publican vote is phenomenal. An analysis of the population statistics suggests that a census was made of the grave yards, with a transfer ence of tbe names to tbe poll books; or the counting boards possessed great arithmetical capacity, espec ially in multiplication. Of course we accept the situation without kicking, for the old woman said: " Tia as 'tis, and can't be no'tiser." • i There i* good reason for believing that ;i four years' rule McKinley will please tbe nation as thoroughly as did the four year's rule of Cleveland. Now, a word, as to tbe future policy of the national, anti-mo nopoly party. Shall we stack our arms, stolidly sit down, fold our hands, waiting, Micawber like for someting to turn up? Charles D. Lane, chairman of the National 15ir.jetali.sts advises us to do so. lie advises that active ngitation cease on tbe subject ol' free coinage, in tbe hope that theories of the re publican will bring relief. Now Lane ought to know that free coin age is net tbe sum total of our aims. The national banks are be dealt with, tor tiie system is it hot bed of devlishnesa and monopoly. Tho gigantic railroad corporations are to be also dealt with in a way which will curb their power and render them suhvient to the inter ests of the producing and consum ing classes. They bleed tbe people of millions of dollars, by means of i their watered stock, a device pttr ' posely concocted to slyly rob the j people. If a dead hog can be I transported from New York to San I Francisco for $5, it would seem i that a man should be transported lat a much luwer figure than at j present. These and other vital I questions are topics entering into i the anti-monopoly program. No, i no, Mr. Lane, your advice is ridic ulous! To follow it the people would make asses of themselves. Doing it, they would practically acknowledge that their action in the left campaign was worse than folly. The anti-monopoly party is mo Jonah's gourd. It has ceased to stay, to keep the field, till the last armed foe expires. To hope that the theories of the Republican party may bring relief, is like fos tering a colony of silk worms on a hog,s back expecting silk cocoons. My voice is still for war —vigorous, aggressive war. False hearted men may cry peace, but peace never can come until our legislation shall be I imbued with the spirit of '7(5, giv- Ung us a government based on that A PRIZE TAKER Is Thk Dawn and the Seattle Weekly Times one year for ONE DOLLAR!

J. Tbe board of county commission ers of Lane county, Kansas, have formally declared the county in solvent and issue instructions to Treasurer John Schiebeck to refrain from further payment of interest on the bonded indebtedness of the county. The bonds are held by about 40 different corporations and individ uals in New York and New Eng land, and when last heard from '■ they were quoted at par. There, seems to be no prospect that pay ment will ever be resumed upon tbe debt as it standi. Edward Helvie, chairman of the board of commis sioners, made the following explana tion of their action: ''We have stopped payment of inteicst upon our bounded debt for tbe simple reason that Lane county is insolvent. We cannot raise mon ey enough by taxation to meet our interest, and tha Ids the whole story. Our home people are not repudia tors; they pay their taxes promptly. But not so with the non-resident property owners, for instance, one of which owns 110 quarter sections of land in tbe county, upon which they have not paid a cent of taxes for nearly three years. Othar loan comprnies and individuals are de linquent the same way. "The eastern money sharks own lands here, collect tl*ir rents, but refuse to pay taxes' Our home people would cheerful ly do their share, but they cannot carry the whole burden, and so wej have reached tbe end." Attorneys have been engaged to de fend against any action that bond holders may bring. THE SHIP OF STATE'S NEW CREW.

Senator Rinehart, of Whatcom, will go through the senatorial win : ter at Olympia as the man who , wants to be omitted from the pray ers at the opening. He definitely so stated on the first day. Perhaps he is no more of a crank than the two other senators who asked to be j left on the list of those to whom postage stamps would be issued, but he looms up as a more offen sive typo tc a greater number. He .is not the only man in the world who sees no particular lienefit in in prayers, before a legislative body. •He is merely the most boorish and j disagreeable of all yet heard from. .

SOMETHING TO DEPEND ON Mr. James Jones, of the drug firm of Jones & Son, Cowden, 111., in Speaking of Dr. King's New Discovery, says that last winter his wife was attacked with La Grippe and her case grew so serious that physicians of Cowden and Pana could do nothing for her. It seemed to develop into hasty con sumption. Having Dr. King's New Discovery in store, and selling lots of it, he took a bottle home, and to the surprise of all she began to get better from the first dose, and half dozen dollar bottles cured her well and sound. Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds is guaranteed to do this good work. Try it. Free trial bottles at Perry Drug Co. Wantkd:—loo eordVof \vnn<l. Enquire o Q.
