Medal Wanted fur "Tip."
Salem, Aug. 17. Governor T. T. Geer
is today in receipt of a communication
from H. L. Wells, former captain of
Company L, Second Oregon, U. S. V.,
petitioning him to seenre a medal for
tbe mascot of said company for its serv
ices in the Spanish-American and Fili
pino wars. Said mascot was small
English pug dog which, Captain Wells
affirms, is duly entitled to a medal for
gallantry. Here are some of the prin
ciple excerpts of the communication
"Inclosed I take pleasure in handing
you a communication I received from a
committee of former members of my
Company, requesting a Spanish War
medal for "Tip," the company mascot,
which I heartily indorse. Tip is an
English pug that, belonged to one of the
members of The Dalles company, which
was consolidated with mine. 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. Tip, however is a veteran
warrior, who lias smelled powder and
listened to the siren song of the Mauser
bullet. 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."
The communication referred to from
the committee is signed by M. Bartell,
J. O. Elton, and C. E. Sanders, who ex
press their w illingness to stand the ex
pense of having eaid medal cast, which
will cost 75 cents, and Governor Geer
has ordered the medal made, which will
be in the form of a plate cast from the
borings of the cannon captured by the
Second Oregon Volunteers from the
Spaniards, and w ill bear the seal of the
State of Oregon, together with the in
tenption: "For gallant service in the

The Chinese cruiser Haichi, comand-
ed by Captain Sah, a thoronehly west

assistance, which was most gratefully
received by Captain Wilde. The Haichi
anchored close by to be of further use
needed. The next day a Russian
cruiser came along. Iter commander,
comming aboard the Oregon, eyed the
Chinese vessel with suspicion, and ask
what she was doing there. On being
told, be shook his head and said it would
nevertheless be his duty to take posses

answered :
"Vell, a bit embarrassed just
now, tun there, is ammunition nnoaru,

Kansas City, Aug. 19. 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. In 1899 the was 223,
000,000 bushels. Secretarv Coburn's
report of conditions in August indicated
a yield this year of about 14.",000,000
bushels. 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. Tbe plowing for
winter wheat is delayed by the dry con
dition of the soil. Pastures are dry and
stock water in many ciBterns is scarce.
Oregon's Cdlirto of Study Commended
Sai-km, Aug. 18. 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."

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
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
"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.
