There is a great howl in Portland

Pacific railroad managers to divert
Oregon grown wheat to Tacoina, in
stead of turning it over to the 0. R.

rule heretofore. The Northern Pa
cific is hereafter to get the complete
haul over its own lines. If this
matter, shall unite the people of
Portland and of this state in a con
certed and determined effort to
build up Oregon and its cities, it
will be a good thing. There is no
reason why the Webfoot state
should not now enter upon a long
period of development and growth.
It will only require the united ef
forts of her own people, who have
heretofore hid the light of Oregon
under a bushel, and allowed Wash
ington and California to absorb the
lion's share of the benefits of east
ern capital, enterprise and immi
gration. , It has often been said
that Oregon needed an earthquake
to wake her people up. This haa
been in a large degree elandorous.
But something has been needed to
get Oregon people to working to

WA8H1XQTOX LETTER. '
Washington, D. C, July 30.
That one of the bloodiest wars in
history is about to be fought in
China is now almost the general be
lief in Washington, but a much
better understanding must be
reached by the nations supposod to
bo allied against China before any:
thing important ii likely to be ac
complished. The jealousy, ; open
and secret, between Russia and
Japan, is believed to be largely, if
not entirely, rewponsiblo for the de
lay in starting the allied army from
Taku to Pekin. The safety of the
foreign ministers is "no longer the
most important factor. Even ac
cepting the Chinese assurances of
their safety, the known massacre of
other foreigners has made the occu
pation of Pekin by a foreign army
necessary in order to teaoh the
Chinese a needed lesson in good be
havior as well as to compel the
payment of a suitable indemnity
If the other powers declare war on
China, the president will have to
call an extra sesson of oongrecs to
decide what this government will
Spain isn't the first country to
be greatly benefitted by a terrible
threshing, but there is no doubt of
its having benefitted largely by its
American licking. Testimony to
that effect is given by all who have
visited Spain recently. For in-
staiieo. Mr. C. II. Slater, a Colorado

nusiness man, wno nas jusv reiunieu
from a trip through Spain said:
"The Spanish people are entering
on a new era of prof perity. Spam'i
humiliating defeat in her war with
the U. 8.", has worked a complete
revolution in the aspirations of her
people. The loss of her colonies.
which at the time was regarded as
a calamity, has proved her greatest
blesnins. It has served to divert
attention to the home land and its
possibilities of development. 'So
long as Spain was a colonial power,
her young men looked to the colon
ies as their possible source of wealth,
and those of them who were pro
gressive left their homes to seek for
tune in the islands, there being no
industrial development in Spain,
such of the population as were com
pel led to remain at home grow
poorer and poorer as the years went
by. All this is changed now. Men
of wealth, who formerly had all
their interests in the insular pos
sesions, are now looking about for
investments at homo, and there is
promise of such development as will
make the Spaniards a great people
Maj. E. T. Ladd, U. 8. A., treas
urer of Cuba, who was in Washing
ton a day or two ago, talked very
plainly about the Cubans, consider
ing his official position. He safd:
"The Cubans are a harmless people,
in no way fit for self-government,
and the announcement of the early
departure of the U. S. troops which,
among the better element, had not
been expected for the next ten years
at least, has aroused a strong feel
ing against the proposed step. The
Spaniards and the better class of
Cubans undoubtedly . prefer an
American protectorate. A cry for
self-government comes from the idle
class and those who do not repre
sent the best interests of the island.
The finances of the island are in
good condition. Since the first of
January, 1899, we have collected
something like $23,000,000 and
have spent some $20,000,000. leav
ing a surplus of about $3,000,000.
The commercial conditions are bet
ter and the sanitary conditions far
ahead of what they have usually
The adage about going away from
home for news was again verified
when it was cabled from Madrid,
that the U. S. had offered Spain
$100,000 for the two islands of the
Philippine group located outside of
the geographical boundaries named
by the treaty which transferred the
Philippines to this government, and
the news was correct, too, It was
a little surprising id Washington,
outdde of official circles, as it was
officially announced when Spain
first claimed the right to retain
sovereignly over those islands that
this government had peremptorily
domed that right, it is now ex
plained that this government is
bound to abide by the boundaries
named in the treaty, and that its
offer to purchase the two islands,
which are unimportant was to pre
vent either of them being obtained
by an European power which wish
es to establish a naval station in
Complaints of army officers of a
shortage of modern field guns, have
resulted in an order for 200 three
inch field guns of the latest type.
These guns will cost about $1000
each, and about the same amount
will be spent for ammunition for
them. The new type of gun has
been thoroughly tested, and is de
clared by our ordnance experts to
be the best of its kind. .
There isn't much consolation for
prohibitionists in the annual re
port of the commissioner of internal
revenue for the fiscal year ending
June 30 last.

"Rattlesnake" Jones is the name
of ft Boise man who captures snakes
and sells them to the Chinese who
puts them in bottles of whisky and
lets the whisky stand two years.
What remains of the snakes is then
removed and the whisky left to
clarify, which takes five years. The
liquid then is a sovereign cure for
rheumatism, says the Statesman
The Chinese claim it will cure the

There is enough water in this
stream, under a proper system of
improvements, to allow its miviga
tion the year through. And the
Willamette valley is certainly im
portant enough to justify the im
provement of the river by the gov
ernment. The cities along its banks
should get together, and stay to
gether, in an effort to have the im
provement made. .

The wheat growing farmers of the
Willamette valley will experience
one of the hardest times this full
they have in many years. In the
ong run it may prove a benefactor
to them. It will cause many of
them to go into diversified farming
and stock raising, for which Oregon
and this valley are specially and
abundantly adapted and for which
there must for many years, says tho
IIomcHteud, be a good demand. I he
outlook for wheat growing in Ore
gon is gloomy at best. This must
necessarily be so from the simple
fact that so many other countries
can gruw wheat cheaper, and are
nearer the markets of the world
Russia, India, and some of the
countries of South America have
developed during the past few years
into vast wheat regions where labor
is much cheaper. But for wool
growing and stock rojsing those
countries cannot compete with Ore'
con. It must follow that our peo
pie give more attention to dairying
and stock raising. Hut there will
bo no less wheat grown in the Wil
lamette valley or in Oregon under
a system of diversified and intensi
fied farming (in bushels) than now
and heretofore. But a less acreage
of land will be required to raiBe it.
And more of it will be consumed on
the farms in the feeding of stock.
More of it will be ' on centra tod in

FARM EXPOSITION LETTER,
-." From our ItouUr Currnnxmdanl,
Parts, Franco, July 15.
It was part of my duty to loo the
minister of commerce (M. Miller-
and) a few days ago it) connection
with the Fourth, and while waiting
(or him I passed the time looking
through Fornand Lubori'i "Grand
Review" at he calls his monthly

French, no doubt, as he tells you
himself, because he makes her talk
English so that ho limy ' not forget
that language, "if she wants

take one in the courts," he adds.
Well, in the Grand Review an
other Dreyfuslte you know of in
America, vei Guyot, suggests
rather than prophesies that France
will some day become Protestant.
Does that surprise you? Yet It
not so surprising if you think of it
The qualities of tho French mind
and character are eminently adapt
ed for Protestantism shrewd, logi
cal, not canity deceived once the
first glamour of sotrie precious dog
ma has worn off, such are the
French. But first let mo soy that
when I qicak of France I do not
mean Paris nor when I speak of
Paris do I mean France. They are
two countries, ulfnost two nation
alities, and though, politically and
artistically, Paris rules Franco, it
is only suiwlicially and she gives
France neither religion nor moral
ity. That is done by Rome, for the
priests educate the intellectual and
moral forces of tho nation and the
priests take their instructions from
Rome. But for NujKtlwn the First
a priest despiser if ever there was
one France might easily have be
come Protestant at tho revolution;
in fact Naoleon was widely reviled
for suppling tho foreign influence
of tho Pope and for signing the
Concordat with Kin In .1801. The
Concordat is tho base of the present
French religious system. But Na
Heon could not do without tho
1m, or rather his ambition made
him soppoxe he could make the
Pope his vuhhivI, and through the
I'ojm! foreign countries, lie brought
the Pope of his day to Paris, you
rememlier, for his coronation and
when the 1'of.e offered to place the
crown on his head, ho very clover
seized it, placed it on his head him
self, and then on that of his Em
prees. Now tho result of the Con
cordat Is that the foreign Catholic
system has grown into tho French
mind and habits and the govern
ment cannot get rid of it if it would.
The government, it is true, nomi
nates tho GO French bisiiops, but
the Popo has an absolute veto, aud
as tho 3XX) cures are irremovable,
and the 7000 vicars entirely in the
hands of of the bishops, the govern
ment cannot dispossess them. I
am far from saying or thinking
there is a disposition on a largo
scalu in France to turn to Protest
antism. Country life in France is
the abomination of desolation and
tho Catholic church with its glitter
ing ceremonial, its fetes, and its
clever priesthood are almost the
sole means of intellectual distrac
tion and amusement for the people.
Literature is not spread and read
through France as in the United
States. I only say, that there is a
Protestant movement of consider
able forco and that vast numbers of
French people despise tho French
clergy and their ways. Many, cer
tainly, detest tho confessional.
Whether any thing will happen to
strengthen the movement I speak
of, or to hopelessly discredit the
Catholio church in France, no one
can Bay. One thing seems obvious.
Unless there shall bo some great
moral change, somo species of purj;
gation,' France must continue to
sink in the scale of nations like
Italy, Spain, Bolgium and other

I was talking tho other day to
Arch Bishop Ireland, of St. Paul,
about tho ubo of English in the
Catholio church. He thinks the
church will one day use nothing
but English and reminded me that
de Maistre so prophesied a hundred
years ago. If ever such a thing
does happen, if the Latin mass and
the gay ritual that becomes neces
sary owing to the mass's failure to
reach the worshiper's heart, is ever
anglicised, it will be at any rate a
first step towards reform.

Tj turn to another subject, yet
one not wholly irrelevant, foreign
languages, Mr. Charlemagne Tower,
the United States amlmitador to
Russia, has written a letter to the
New York Times' Paris Exposition
edition omphalng the imKrtanc
to Americans of learning foreign
languages. Mr. Tower asserts that
not only in diplomacy but in trade is
a sound knowledge of foreign lan
guages necessary, and all the, more
now that America is entering upon
now and far-off fields of enterprise
and administration. It seems good
advice If we were really reconciled
