are Jesigne-1 to eoe5t lan treachery
of tLe basest Jrcription, including
akl ami comfort to the enemies of the
nation paying their salaries and pro
viding food for their families and
What steps would be taken were a
weaker power in tte ascendancy in
the rbilippir.es one shudders to con
template, l'robably pure anarchy
would obtain in a few months, with
the islands divided against them
selves and the Land of every man
turned agaii st Lis neighbor. Villages
would be at war with eatb olber,
commerce would be destroyed, and
the Gelds wcuH go untitled. With
a strong nation like America, backed
by 7000 troops, the insurrection is
more under cover, but it is painfully
id evidence, and some of the boldest
natives do not hesitate to announce
they will afford every opportunity
for the carrying od of gueiilla war
fare. It is to such a conglomeration of
tribes and people the opponents of
American dominion in the Philip
pines would give a free rein, offering
tbe statement that they are intelli
gent, liberty-loving and capable of
self-government. When tbe anti-
nnexationist and tbe opponent of
American occupation of the Philip
pines asks Ibis government to aban
don tbe burdens which came with tbe
peace treaty ending tbe Spanish
American war, tbey forget tbe Grst
principles of good government.
Honesty of purpose is one of tbe
foundation stones of every civilized
nation, and there can be no honesty
where duplicity and treachery exist.
No government ran hold together
where tbe people begin to plot
against their leaders the moment
peace Is declared, and no nation will
long survive where every tribe Is at
war with its neighbor and all tbe
tribes war against progress.
It is apparent tbat without a strong
governing hand in the Philippines
the people of tbe islands would lapse
into barbarism, a fertile country
would become a jungle and tbe
evidences of civilization which began
to manifest themselves under the rule
of a naticn as corrupt as Spain would
become memories. Outside the nar
row radius of tbe suburbs of tbe
larger cities no man's life ' would be
Is it possible to believe these
treacherous people could form a
republic with Aguinaldo and bis
advisers as president and cabinet?
How long would a government by
- bese men last? How would tbey
keep peace with tbe conflicting tribes
in tbe islands? The truth is, tbe
-natives of the Philippines have never
been fitted for self-government.
Conditions there among all but a
few isolated tribes approach so close
Jy tbe ideals of the most rampant
-anarchist tbat it is curious the dis
ciples of the red flag and dynamite
do not establish colonies on the
islands. Government by any set of
natives (elected from tbe officials
now permitted to assist in carrying
on civil functions of the islands
would result in barefaced robbery,
unbearable taxation and Inevitable
The fortunes of war have imposed
upon the United States tbe task of
educating these natives to embrace
civilization. It can not be done by
making citizens of tribesmen in this
decade, or perhaps not in the follow
ing one. It will be years before the
treacherous disposition of the natives
has been remodeled. Only time will
teach these misguided people that
freedom means honesty of purpose
and obedience to Just laws. Spokesman-Review.
THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS.
When president McKinley goes
out on an electioneering tour, and
delivers a number of addresses, his
efforts are not always of a high order.
At Impromptu work he is not felici
tous. But when the president sets
bout the careful preparation of an
address or state paper, the product is
pretty sure to be worth reading.
This is apropos of his recent ad
dress before the Ohio Society of New
Yoik. Regardless of whether the
iudividaal reader agrees iih all or
a part of the doctrines therein coun
ciated, it is only fair to say tbat bis
address was strong, di-uiGcd and
Tbe president was particularly
forcible in bis rebuke of the flam
boyant patriots who are betraying an
apparent put pose to embroil us in
a war with Great Britain. "There
are unfortunately those among us,"
said President McKinley, '-few in
number, I am sure, who seem to
thrive best under bad times, and
who, when good times overtake
them in the United States, feel con
strained to put us on bad terms with
tbe rest of mankind."
The president well says: "We
are neither in alliance, nor entangle
ment, nor antagonism with any
foreign power, but on terms of amity
and cordiality with all. We buy
from all of them and sell to all of
There is no reason to doubt this
distinct and clear assurance. The
truth is, tbe noisy clamor about imag
inary "entangling alliances" comes
for the most part from politicians
ft bo are doing all they can to pull
the United States into an entangling
alliance with the Transvaal and tbe
Orange Free State, and thereby pro
voke war or strained relations with
Its foreign policy has been the
strongest and most admirable part of
President MtKinley'a administration.
We have come through one war with
a power of Europe, and through a
troublesome insurrection in the Phil
ippines, and remain free from en
tangling alliance or complication.
Id fact, we have cultivated more
cordial relations with our neighbors
THE WORLD'S NEW FINANCIAL
Tbe loan of $25,000,000 which
Russia has just made in New York Is
one of many recent evidences that
the world's center of financial gravity
is shifting to this side of tbe Atlantic
For many years that center was in
Lisbon. Then it went to Amster
dam. Atterward it traveled to Lon-
doD, and it remained there two and
a half centuries. Now it is moviDg
to New Yoik.
In many particulars New York
has been beating London in recent
years. London Is still ahead of
New Yoik in population, though if
the entire metropolitan district
around tbe mouth of the Hudson
were counted as one city, as it is in
the case of the big town on tbe
Thames, tbe British city would not
contain many more inhabitants than
the American center. In many par
ticulars, however, ihe American city
is getting ahead of its rival on the
other side of the Atlanlic. New
York's imports and exports are great
er than London's. Tbe aggregate of
its bank clearances is much larger
than those of England's city. Its
growth in those resjecl3, too, is
much in excess of that of its rival.
The number of millionaires which it
contains is much lurgcr.
Russia bad the whole world open
to it, but it came to New York to
float its big loan. The loan, which
is guaranteed by the government of
Ihe czar, is to be paid, principal and
interest, In American money, and in
New York. This is not the first loan
of a European government which
has been floated, in this country.
The transactions of this sort will un
doubtedly be frequent hereafter.
The United States is the wealthiest
country in the world. In this re
spect, indeed, it bas gone so far be
yond tbe United Kingdom in the
past twenty years that its holdings of
property of all sorts very nearly
eq .a! .those of tbe United Kingdom
and France together, which stand
second and third on the list, respect
ively. A HINT FROM FRANKLIN.
In 1773 Franklin wrote some
"rules for reducing a great empire to
a small one." They were published
in the London Public Advertiser,
and were intended for the eyes of the
king and bis ministers. One of these
rules ha, some application to the
. . '
pending measure for tne government,
,.f Pnoitfi Rico, and mieht be coc-
sidered with proEt by President
McKinley and t!ie Republican leaders
iu congress. Franklin said :
"Take special care the provinces
are never incorporated with the
mother country; that tbey do not
cnj'jy the same commercial rights,
and have the same privileges iu com
mon." The Puerto Rican bill does not
grant the people of the island the
same commercial rights as are en
joyed by the "mother country" and
her other territories. Alaska has free
! trade with the stales. If the pend
ing bill becomes a law, Puerto Rico
will not have free trade with this
country. It does not alter the
principle to say the tariff between
Puerto Rico awl the United Slates
is only 15 per cent of the existing
American tariff. To that extent we
are exploiting the Islands od sclOsh
methods. We are making of Puerto
Rico a part, and yet not a part of
the common countr.y. We are tax
ing its people for the use of our
markets, and taxing them at both
ends of the transaction.
The bill is a squint at imperialism.
It weakens our cause with the Fili
pinos, and it lowers us in the estima
tion of ourselves and the rest of
THE MOHR LINE BOATS.
Preliminary Arrangement tnr Their
It Is understood that necessary ar
rangements (or tbe construction of the
boats to be used on what is known as
the Paul SI oli r transportation !in-, have
been made and that active operations
wiil be commenced at once, says the
The dimensions of tbe boat will be:
Length, 200 feet; beam, 32 feet; depth
of hold, 8 feet. One will be fitted es
pecially for passenger traffic. Her cab
ins will be equipped with all the modern
conveniences. Ihe other will have first
class passenger accommodations, but
will be able to carry a greater amount of
freight. Both boats will be equipped
with hitch pressure engines of great
power. Their boilers will be capable of
standing a high steam pressure aud will
probably use coal for fuel.
From Portland it is reported that a
knock-dowu boat, the timbers for which
have been recently sawed at Johnson's
mill, Is being loaded od the cars cn the
O. R. A X. switch on the East Side. It
will be shipped to a point opposite
Columbus on tbe upper river, and there
put together. Tbe boat which will be
built at that point will be 165 feet in
length, 32 feet beam and 6 feet depth of
hold. It is understood that tbe boiler
and engines are now on the fground,
Captain Cochran having brought them
from Chicago. Tbe steamer Fredrick
Billings, which was recently purchased
from the Northern Pacific, will be snp-4
plied with a new boiler and will go into
commission immediately as a construc
tion boat. The report is current that
the next move on tbe part of the com
pany will probably be the construction
of a first-c'iass, light-draught boat on
Snake river, at some point above Riparia.
For about three or foar months in each
Tear, Snake river is navigable from
i Htu iu urniiu auuu9. iu remainder
n . - l t l ti i l
ot the year boats can operate only b -
tween Kiparia and points a few miles
above Lewiaton. .
Iha Han Who Can.
There is but one straight road to suc
cess, and that is merit. The man who
is successful is the man who is useful.
It cannot remain undiscovered because
it is sought by too many anxious to
utilize it. A capable man on earth is
more valuable than any precious de
posit under the earth, and the object of
a much more vigilant search. Whoever
undertakes to build a houee, to cultivate
a farm, to work a mine, - to obtain relief
from pain, to maintain a legal contro
versy, or to perform any function of
civilized life, Is actively searching for
other men qualified to aid him. To ap
preciate the thoroughness of the search
it is necessary only to realize the number
of persons engaged in all theee pursuits
and undertakings throughout the world.
From inch a search, no form of ability
can remain concealed
I the possessor
of capacity sought to hide himself, be
would be discovered and induced to em
ploy bis ability for the benefit of those
who need it.
To be successful, then, one bas but to
qualify himself thoroughly for some oc
cupation. Every man has some natural
aptitude. In theto days, the training
by which natural aptitude is developed
into effective ability can be obtained by
every youth. No man can hope to be
beet Id any field of labor, but everyone
can hope to be among the best. Time
occupied In worrying about opportuni
ties, openings and starts, is time wasted.
-Walla Walla Statesman.
I'obllo Lands for Soldiers,
Representative Jones, of Washington,
a chairman of a sub-committee of the
Itee on pub!ic lands, will
otue a bid -
od laws to the
soldiers of the Spanish war, tats trie
Eatit Oreifoniaa. Several bills looking
to this purpose bave been introduced in
the home and all referred to the sui
committee of ahich Mr. Jones is the
head. He has embodied the best
features, all in one bid, which will be
reported to tlie house with the sanction
of the committee.
It provides that every eoliier who en
listed for tie Spanish war shall have
credit upon a homestead claim equal to
the amount of nis service. Moat of the
measures as introduced provide that
every soldier should have credit for a
full two years, regardless of the term cf
Tbe bill prepared by Representative
Jones will give to eviry sjldler who
served any length of time under six
months, six months' credit, and to those
tho served six months aud lets than
twelve months, one year's credit. That
is, every soldier, regular and volunteer,
who may elect to take up a homestead,
if be served over one year in the war
with Spain, will only need to live on hie
homestead three years before making
final proof. Tbe bill also provides that
widows and minor heirs of soldiers who
died while in service, or as a result of
service, shall receive the same credit as
would have been allowed to tbe soldiers
Further, if a soldier died while in
eervice, or as a result of his service, bis
widow or minor heirs will get the benefit
of a full term of tnlistnient of two years
credit npon tbe homestead claim.
Catarrh Cannot be Cured
with local applications, as they cannot
reach tbe seat of tbe disease. Catarrh
is a blood or constitutional disease, and
in order to cure it you must take inter
nal remedies. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
tuken internally, and acts directly on
the blood and mucous surfaces. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is not a quack medicine.
It was was prescribed by ono of the beet
physicians in Ibis country for years, and
is a regular piescription. It is composed
of the best tonics known, combined with
the best blood purifiers, acting directly
on tbe mucous surfaces. The perfect
combination of tbe two ingredients is
what produces such'wonderful results in
curing Catarrh. Send for testimonials,
