He went over with us and went through the en tire campaign and into every fight with us. There were two other dogs with tbe regiment, but neither of them went through the campaign, both remaining in Manilla.

When the regiment was mus tered out Colonei Summers gave him a regular discharge, and now he wants the medal he earned by gallant service in the field."

Two-thirds of Kansas, west of the three easternmost tiers of counties, is experiencing one of the most severe drouths in the history of the state, and the general opinion is that the Kansas corn crop will be the smallest in proportion to its require ments for feeding, that has been raised in many years.

Since then there have been two week of hot, dry weather, which has materally reduced conditions, and tbe most liberal estimates of well in formed men on 'change do not exceed 100,000,000 boBhels.

Profeesor G. A. Gregory, formerly superintendent of tbe public schools of Jackson county, Oregon, has been spending tbe present summer at the University of Chicago, where he has been making a special study of school methods. In pursuing that course be has had occasion to study courses of study for graded and tingrad ed schools. In writing of his observa tions he says. "I have not yet met a state course for rural and town graded schools that is as practical as tbe one Superintendent Ackerman prepared for Oregon. I find some so rigid that, if followed, would become a hindrance to progress; others so brief or indefinite that the average teacher will have difficulty in rsing them. The Oregon course seems to be the golden mean, and I expect to see the Oregon schools prosper under it." Slain With a Hammer. New York, Aug. t9.

IS NOT AN AGUINALDIST Why Steward of .Nevada Will Vote for Mckinley. Antis Prolonged Fil ipino War. Nkw York, Aug. 20. Senator Will lam M. Stewart, of Nevada, called at republican headquarters today and said he had decided to vote for President McKinley. He made the statement in part as follows: "The United States went to war with spam, urged on by the democratic party. The popularity of that war was such that Mr. Bryan joined the armv. The war was successful, a treaty of peace was entered into whereby the United States agreed to pay 120,000,000 and accept the sovereignty and public property of Spain in the Philippine Archipelago. The was opposition to tho ratification of tha treaty. Mr. Bryan came to Washington and persuaded his democratic friends to vote for the treaty and it was through his influence that the treaty was finally ratified. It then became the duty of the United States to maintain law and order and protect the lives and property of all residents in the islands, whether native or foreign born "The United States at the time of the ratification of the treaty held military possession cf Manila and immediately after such ratification assumed the sov' engnty of the islands. The people of the United States, especially of the Pa' cine coast, became entitled to the vast commerce of the Pacific ocean, of which the Philippines furnish the key. "One Aguinaldo had raised a rebel lion in Luzon against Spain before the commencement of the Spanish war with the United States. This adventurer had sold out or settled his rebellion with Spain for $400,000 before Dewey set sail for Manila, and as part of the bargain with Spain Aguinaldo agreed to leave the islands and never return. "Dewey took the wily Aguinaldo back to the Islands, supposing, as a matter of course, that Aguinaldo would naturally be an enemy of Spain and a friend of the United States. In this Admiral Ddwey was mistaken. Aguinaldo, as soon as he landed, organized a rebellion against the United States, which would have been of little consequence if he had not been able to obtain comfort and aid in this country. An organization was formed in the United States called the Anti-Imperialist League, which has for the last two years co-operated with Aguinaldo's Tagal juntas, with head quarters at Hong Kong, to supply lit erature and materials cf war for Aguin aldo. "President McKinley had no author ity to buy out Aguinaldo's rebellion against the United States, but bound by the treaty (which was the rupreme law of the land; to maintain law and order and protect life and property in the is lands. It required a large army and the expenditure of hundied of millions of dollars to put down Aguinaldo's rebel lion. The assistance and the encourng ment he received from the Auti-Im-perialUt league and the enemies of the United States, both at home and abroad, made bis barbaious and irregular war bloody and expensive. Congress, how ever, made all necessary appropriations, providing for tho executive men and money to maintain the nuthority of the United States ih tho Philippines. The socalled anti-imperialists declared that the rolicy pursued by the government to put down the rebellion and maintain law and order in all territories of the United States, without regard to the time when euch territories wero ac quired, was 'imperialism, and that any use of tho army to maintain law and order, however necpssary, was 'militar ism' and that (living aid and comfort to retiels in arms against the United States was 'maintaining the principles of the Declaration of Independence.
