Only four of the forty churches
of Galveston are standing. The
fact gives the world a true sense of
the devastation of the city.
Galveston grew into an import

those has been lost.

Oregon has nine rural mail de
livery routes at the present time.
In 1897 three separate routes were
established at Turner, Marion coun
ty. In July, 1899, two more were
established, one at LaGrande and
one at Hood River. In June, 1900,
one was authorized at Shedds, Linn
county, and one at Dayton, Yam
hill covnty. In July of this year
one was put in at Newbcrg, and on
the 15th instant the last one was
authorized for Suver, this county.
There are in the neighborhood of
a dozen applications for new routes
in Oregon and Washington now
pending, but so great a demand has
been made for this service all "over
the west that action upon these ap
plication is necessarily slow, and
cannot be authorized until the pro
posed routes have been examined

Automobiles are being used with
great success in the French army

The Philippine policy outlined
by the president in his letter of in
structions to the Taft commission
is all right from the American point
of view. It offers the Filipinos all,
and probably more, real happiness
than they could possibly get under
their own rulership. The bother is
that they would rather make a
Uitch of ruling themselves than
have some alien make a success of
it. And in this, they are like some
other people ourselves, for in

Germany refuses to make peaco
with the Empress Dowager until
the men who were responsible for
the outrages have been surrendered
to her for punishment. Nine-tenths
of the American people will back
Germany up in this. A little whole
sale justico against the ring leaders
in China will do more to guarantee
the safety of foreigners in that
country than will all the guaran

It is asserted, and pretty nearly
proven, that less than 10 per cent
of the goods kept in the grocery
stores of Oregon are produced on
the coast. More than 75 per cent
could be produced here if the pre-
per effort were made. Farmers,
raise your own bacon, beans, toma
toes, canntd and dried fruit, butter,
eggs, honey, etc. Then $8,000,000
will be saved to the Btate of Oregon
annually. This state will be afilict

The Willamette valley haB been
wheated with a persistency that
cannot be explained. From tin
earliest days in tho state's history
the soil has been repeatedly sown
to this product, to the exclusion of
all other cropaf until it is suspi
cioned and believed by some that
nothing else will pay. Almost any
other crop will yield better returns.
Clover will beat it dollars to halves

Perhaps it was "the best thing that
ever happened" when Western Ore

failure. Whatever the cause, it is
gratifying to hear from our own
farmers of the resolution to "get out

The death list at Galvoston con
tinues to grow, and the destruction
of property mounts up far beyond
tho first estimates. But the authori
ties are laboring with the greatest
energy to perform the first duty of
relieving distress and preventing
sickness. Amid such scenes of dis
tructions a herculean work miiBt be
faced, but everything has been done
that could be done, and tho agencies
of relief from the outside are now
in touch with the suffering city.
Those experienced in calamities
who have arrived on the scene say
the loss of life and the devastation
at Galveston are worse than at
Johnstown. It iB all the more
necessary then to extend the aBsist
ance needed in the promptest ami
amplest manner, and to keep up
the stream of contributions.
Washington, D. C, Sept. 17.
Gen. Chaffee and the American
troops now there are likely to eat
their Christmas dinner in Pckln, so
far as can bo seen at present. It Is
believed that tho refusal of Eng
land and Germany to will-draw
their troops, caused Russia to
change her mind, and that it was
liecauso of a knowledge of that
change, although there has been
no ollicial announcement, that this
government made a promise of pro
tecting Li Hung Chang, if ho need
ed protection, which makes it
practically certain that our troop
will be kept lit Pckln as long as the
negotiations which Li and several
other chinamen are to conduct on
Udialf of tho Chinese government,
go on there. Minister Conger bus
sent an important communication
concerning these negotiations but
tho department of Statu declines to
give it out. Unknown tint Mr,
Conger does not feel as much con II-
l.'iicii in Li Hung Chang, as this
government exhibited, and he has
probably sent a word of warning
as to the danger of trusting him
tOO far. i
Shrewd observers are predicting
that soon after the opening of nego
tiations with the Chinese, the allies
will split and that each nation will
endeavor to get tho U1 settlement
it can regardless of what the others
got. 1 hat u believed to lie the end
Li Hung Chang is aiming at. The
numlier of those who believe that
Germany and Russia will in tho
end ho found acting together and
that Loth will demand territory is
increasing. It may be necessary
for Undo Sam to show his willing
ness to ll ;ht for his treaty trade
rights in China, if not actually to
fight for them before tho business
is settled. Several of his allies are
his greatest trade- rivals and the
old gentleman' has need to be very
wide awake to escape being buncoed,
Mr. S. Iwaunira, who is a gradu
ate of the Japanese Imperial Uni
versity and Chief Secretary of the
Kyota Chamber of Commerce, who
is making a weiuiolliciul tour of
the U. S., with a view to increasing
business between Americans am
Japanese, is now in Washington.
Ho expressed himself as follows as
to what otighj to bo done by the
powers in China: "There aietwo
possible courses for tho powers to
take in dealing with the future in
China. One is Id make a confed
eracy out of tho country, with the
different provinces as independent
states, like tho German Empire,
the second course is to preserve the
Chinese Empire under jicw rulers.
The formation of a confederacy
would U no easy task for the pow
ers, and they would have to act as
protectors and general overseers all
the time. If the powers interested
in China would stand firm in tho
maintenance of tho Chinese Con
federacy, tho thing would be ac
complished. The present dynasty
has not sullicient support nor pop
ularity to maintain its authority.
Many of the ignorant and supersti
tious natives are led to believe
through tho "star-gazers" that the
end of the present dynasty is near,
and the multitudes look for a new
reign within a short time. A strong
army will be needed in China all
tho time, and Japan can furnish
this army if the other interested
powers will come forward with tho
Washington o plo havo alady
done much for the Galveston suffer
ers, but they aro to do more. Wod
nesday of this week has been set
asiJc as Galveston day. Every
theatre in the city will give a bene
fit performance, tho entire gross re
ceipts to go to the relief fund, and
there are few persons in the city
who will not contribute something,
directly, or indirectly, on that days
Ex-Secretary and ex-Senator Car
lisle was in Washington on legal
business for several days, but all
efforts to get an expression of opin
ion from him on current polities
were met by the smiling reply that
he was out of politics and had noth
ing to say at this time. Mr. Car
lislie is said to bo rapidly accumu
lating wedth in tho practice of law.
Tho government is being run just
now almost entirely by minor offi
cials, although the usual vacation
season is about over.- One roaon
for this is that tho president and
members of the cabinet spent more
time, than usual, owing to the Chin
ese troubles, in Washington during
the pasj, summer, and they aro now
getting some , rest and recreation
preparatory to the winter's . work
before them.' Another reason is
that the political campaign is now
fully under way and several mem
bers of tho cabinet are in demand
as stump speakers. The president
is at Canton, presumably for rest,
but tho telegraph reports him as
constantly holding important con
ferences with his political friends,
,'o he vidently isn't there entirely
mr rest. Attorney General Griggs
and Secretary Hitchcock, hoth of
whom have had long vacations, are
the only members of the cabinet in

"Every crnp game in Portland
has been vict indued by loaded dice,
an t one of tho suborners, Sam Rolf,
Is lit jail. Rolf is ft manufacturer
of dice, and in moments of tem
porary absent-mindedness, ho oc
casionally loads tho dice, Armed
with a pocketful of theso eulns,
Rolf and a companion began a
campaign against tho crap games,
and swindled every ono in tho city.
Rolls operations became known
this afternoon after tho chit f of
police had arrested him on First
street for failing to leave town
when ordered to do so."
The Portland Telegram publishes
tho above. What strikes ono as
very peculiar is that Rolf was
warped to quit town for robbing
the game, yet the police allow tho
games to do business and rob tho
eoplo who attempt to win from
them. Tho Telegram should in
form tho public what interest tin

ponce auuioruies nave in ineso
games that they should become
their protectors, Eugene Guard.
Doesn't the Guard know that
Portland licenses this and other
evils? As the games are now sanc
tioned by the police, any Interior-1
eneo on tho part of another gam
is sure to meet with a hot rebuff.
What a common thing it Is for
man to work twenty yours accumu
lating a competency and then de
cide he can do better in some far
away state, remarks an exchange,
lie sells bis property at a sacra lice,
tries some other location, and in a
few years finds bis littlo fortune
scattered to tho four winds. Every
train that passes through his town
is loaded wild chumps. One half
tho passengers have beuii west or
east and got bmko and aro return
ing to their old homes to legiri over
again. ' Tho other half have just
sold their old homes and are run
ning away to become poor. Why
are people so foolish? Tho whole
world is alike all around. There is
no place where tho climate is al
ways pleasant, no place where con
tentment dwells; there is no place
where wealth is easily gained. No
place where work seems play. Don't
run to th other side of the world
expecting to find anything differ
ent. Tho writer of tho above has,
to a groat extent, tho correct idea,
but any man in drottthy portions
of the middle west may wiu by
coming to Oregon. True, every
state has its drawbacks, but Oregon
has tho least number.
