Blaine is develop ing into an accomplished fact, says the mter-OceaD. The details of this 3lan may or may not be worked oat. "They do not matter. The essential 'unity of American interests is becom ing a conviction common to all America. In the entire range of J"South American countries, all, with uwo exceptions, have given unmis takable signs of friendliness in re cent years. The two exceptions are Chili and Argentine Republic. The latest evidence of this friend- , liness comes from Rio Janerio. A dispatch from that capital announces that the Brazilian Radicals are pre paring to declare themselves in the chamber of deputies as In favor of of the United States and opposed to Spain in the present conflict. ' The government of Brazil gave the most practical evidence of good will by selling to our government one of the best battleships of its navy, and that, too, when the war was so near that the sale versed upon 'an infringe ment of neutrality. Our relations with Brazil were always friendly, and when the republic was struggling for existence the United States rendered it signal service by a practical appli- cation of the Monroe Doctriae. Eu ropean warships were sent there to afford aid and comfort to the mon archical rebels under Mello and Da Gam a. Tbeir malign influence was promptly and effectively checkmated by a formidable counter naval dem onstration on the pait of the United Stales. . The great republic of Brazil has hardly, if any, less occasion to be grateful to our own government than has Venezuela. The greater the influence of the United States in the affairs of Amer ican'nations the better it will be for all America. That the Agentine Re public is unfriendly is due to the pre Donderance of foreign influence. In an evil hour that country ead a spasm of speculation and wild fiatism When the inevitable " collapse came the European capitalists had a blan ket mortgage on the country. The present attitude of Argentine toward the United States is due to this con dition of bankruptcy and financial dependence. As for Chili, there was a time when it had a better navy than the United States, and it still cherishes an absurd ambition to dom inate the rest of South America Moreover, the Chilian government still remembers the day when it was brought to terms with Benjamin Har rison's ultimatum. The general and cordial good wil of nearly all the other countries of this continent is a potent factor in enabling the United States to take and maintain its right place among the great powers of the world. The time seems near at hand when James G. Blaine's ideal of pan-American alliance will become an international reality. TREASONABLE JOURNALS. In the house on Wednesday Rep resentative Belknap declared that a certain New York paper had "spread broadcast to the world the location of every mine in New York harbor, If that is true, the publisher and editor of that paper ought to be ar rested and tried for treason, says the Spokesman-Review. The constitu tion of the United States defies trea son as "levying war against the United States, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort." The aid which might be given by an American citizen who shouldered a rifle for Spain would be infinitesi mal in comparison with the aid it would derive from learning the loca tion of the mines in our harbors. In timea like these it is preposter ous for any newspaper . wishing to print information damaging to this government to seek shelter behind the provision of the constitution which declares that "congress shall make no lav abridging the freedom of speech or of the press." As well might be claimed by some traitorous wretch holding communication with Spanish 'agents that interference by our government was an abridgment of his constitutional right of "free speech." No self-respecting or patriotic journal will want to disseminate news which would aid and comfort the enemies of this country. Jour nalistic "enterprise" which goes to that length- ought to be brought up with a sharp warning; and if the offense be repeated, the proprietor and his editor ought to be clapped in prison, and made to answer to the stern charge of treason. HERE'S TO THE OREGON. Another great achievement must be credited 10 the American navy. Admiral Dewey proved the fighting capacity of the modern battleships. Captain Clark of the Oregon has shown they are good sailors. When the Oregon left San Francisco for the long journey around Cape Horn it was said no battleship should be put to so severe a test. It was argued that our great "floating batteries" were built for fighting, not for long voyages, and that to send the Ore gon on a hurried trip of 14,000 miles was more than hazardous. . ' The battleship, the pride of our Pacific coast, started for the Atlan tic squadron to make good the loss of the Maine. While she has been sailing down one side of the conti nentand up the other, the war has made rapid progress. . Other war ships, purchased abroad, have joined the Atlantic squadron in advance of her, but no one has been followed with such - anxiety as the Oregon. Foes watched for her at strategic points, but she escaped them all. The voyage of the Oregon is the mcst remarkable ever made by a bat tleship. The naval experts in Eu rope have watched the course of the Oregon with as much interest as they have watched the maneuvers of Ad miral Sampson's fleet. If this high est type of the modern battleship could . stand the strain of high speed for 14,000 miles and join the Atlan tic squadron ready for battle an im portant point in naval architecture would be settled in favor of the new school. The Oregon has been ready for battle every day for two weeks. She has been steaming toward her goal over a path beset by Spanish war vessels. She has been the objective point of two or more Spanish expe ditions, intended to delay or capture her. But she has arrived in the Car ibbean sea in lime to join in the na val battle for which - she was ordered from the Pacific to the Atlantic. She is a sailer and a fighter. May her shadow never grow less until she has shown the Spaniards the stuff of which she and her fighting men are made. The present war has demonstrated at least that there is no division of popular sentiment with regard to the question of increasing our naval strength. Even political lines are lost sight of when the question of building up a great navy is discussed in congress now. That is one tre mendous gain in our favor, and it must be counted, no matter what other results are attained in the war with Spain. The newspaper correspondents cap tured by the Spaniards in Cuba are to be exchanged ior the Spanish offi cers captured by the United States, Governor-General Blanco has noti tied the government that he is not only willing but anxious to get rid of them, and that he will take any kind of S Danish officers in return -for them. Weyler's brother, now a United States prisoner of war, threatens to reconcentrado himself to death, which, in view of all circumstances, is the proper thing for him to do. There is a universal feeling of regret in this country, however, that it isn't Weyler's brother's brother, who is going to do it. ' It is said that Admiral Dewey- when a bov was the terror of the nervous people in his native village because of his mischievous pranks, but the man who tells this specified that his full name should appear in connection with the story as an evi der.ee of good faith. , It used to be Grant's idea that all personal misunderstandings would keep till the war was over; but Grant was an old-fashicned soldier who entertained the silly notion that what the country wanted him to do was to make things hot for the enemy. The Spaniards are blamed for regarding this country with un feigned derision; but what would you think of a country whose nag was floated by a gunboat called Gussle, if you knew scarcely any thing about its redeeming features. For the benefit of those who do not understand Spanish it might be said that Boca Grande one of the main t channels in Manila Harbor means big mouth. Spain is cele brated for its boca grandes. One way to get even with Spain would be to charge up against her the expense involved in chasing her fleet around the globe. We should not forget the coal bills when the day of settlement arrives. The climate of the Philippines is remarkably salubiious at this season of the year. The rainy season has not as yet set in, but days and nights are quite Dewey at present. Let us then be up and Deweying, with a heart for any fate; still achiev ing, still purseweying, learn to get there, not to wait. If the Spaniards were so anxious to avoid a sea fight why didn't they keep their fleet at home? " . A torpid liver ' robs you of ambition and wins your health.

In epeaking of the coming election and the candidates who are . in the field the Antelope Herald says of A. M. Kelsay, the nominee for county clerk. V Our readers are all acquainted with the candidate for clerk, . A. M. Kelsay, and he needs no very great amount of recommendation. He is recognized as having made the moat accomodating and efficient officer that ever graced the office of county clerk in Wasco county. He has already had the office two terms and has given sacb excellent service that the people were so well satisfied that they want to retain him. In deciding how your ballot shall be on the to men running for this important office, consider well the adviaibility of making a change when you know to a certainty that Mr. Kelsay will prove officient, while the other man, Mr. Andereon,is an uncertainty and yon may be sorry for the change should you make one. . "The worst and only formidable objec tion to Mr. Keleay is that it is bis third term, yet Mr. Gibons a Democrat, held the office for six years in encceseion, and resigned dunng his last term, "We have stated before in our col umns, that no better recommendation than this could be had. Consider well before you vote and cast your ballot for A. M. Kelsay and make no mistake." C. I,. Gilbert for Scbool Superintendent Professor C. L. Gilbert, Republican candidate for county school superinten dent, is well known throughout the county, having occupied that position for the past two years. . His devotion to educational matters, together with the marked interest he has manifested daring his term to im prove the schools of Wasco county, will insure him a very large vote. Mr. Gilbert has the reputation, where ever known, of being "the right man in the right place," having performed his duties as superintendent justly and im partially to all. Mr. Gilbert has filled the position of principal of the public schools at Hood River for four years, having taken charge of these schools at a time when they were perhaps not what they might have been, and, during bis administration, brought them np to a standard second to none in the county. His efficient work for the last two years throughout the county is manifest. and we can predict that if be is superin tendent for the next two years, Wasco county will be able to say proudly that her schools are second to none in the state. All who feel an interest, and every good citizen should, in the future welfare and education of tbe young, give him their hearty support in the coming election. He has always been an earnest, con sistent Republican, but lor all this he has sever allowed bis political views to influence him in tte least in the dis charge of .his duties as superintendent. Vote for him and you will never regret it. TYGH VALLEY ROLLING MILL. At all times flour equal to tbe best for sale at Tygh Valley Roller Mills, at prices to suit the times. Also mill feed W. M.

BMiilts asAKDsa WagomnaKers A School lirrs From the "New Mothers who have young daughters of school age should watch their health more carefully than their studies. The proper development of their body is of the first im portance. After the confinement of the school room, plenty of out-of-door exercise should be taken. . It is better that their children never learn their a, b, c's, than that by learning them they lose their health. But all this is self-evident. Everyone admits it everyone knows it, but everyone does not know how to build them up when once they are broken down. The following method of one mother, if rightly applied, may save your daughter : The young lady was Hiss Lucy Barnes, the fifteen-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Barnes, who lives near Bur ney, Ind.VJ She is a bright young lady, is fond of books, although her progress in this line has been considerably retarded by the considerable amount of sickness she has ex perienced. She bas missed two years of school on account of her bad health, but now she will be able to pursue her studies, since her health has been restored. Her father was talking of her case to a newspaper man one day recently. "My daughter has had a very serious time of it, said Mr. Barnes, " but now we are all happy to know that she is getting along all right and is stronger than ever." Asked to relate the story of his daughter, Mr. Barnes con tinued: "About three years ago, when she was twelve years old, she began to grow weak and nervous. It was, of course, a deli cate age for her. She gradually grew weaker sod her nerves were at such a tension that the least little noise would irritate her very much, and she was very miserable. There was a continual twitching in the arms and lower limbs, and we were afraid that she was spine to develop Stl Vitus' dance. A" She kept getting worse and finally we had to take her from her school and her studies. She was strong and healthy before, weighing eighty-five pounds, and in three PERSONAL.

We did everything we could for her, and tried all the doctors who we thought could do her any good, but without result. "There was an old family friend neat Milford who had a daughter afflicted the same way, and she was cured by Dr. Wil Hams' Pink PUls for Pale People.

They helped her at once, and by the time she had taken eight boxes of the medicine she wag entirely cured. She took the last dose in April, and has, not been bothered since. She is now stronger than ever, weighs ten pounds more than ever before, and her cheeks are full of color. She can now gratify her ambition to study and become an educated woman."
