Just at present the entente be

Britain is flourishing finely, but the
chances are that before so very long
it will receive a blight, if not a
killing frost. The reason will be
that the United States is likely to
continue the process by which it is
steadily wresting the world's mar

declares that Boni is bogus. Doubt

A number of influential Republi

they are in favor of the principle.
They are no doubt right in both
positions. The present bill was
drawn by President Griscom, of the
American line, and is admittedly
intended to promote the interests of
that line rather than those of the

On the first day of the session of
congress but one Oregon member

keep up their political fences, and
in order to do so must spend much

The Oregonian was fifty years
old on Tuesday. It is a great
newspaper in every sense of the
word and a tribute to the untiring
energy and skill of Henry L. Pit
tock and Harvey W. Scott. There
are very few old printers in Oregon
or Washington who did not at some
time "set type" on the Oregonian.
One who could "hold a case" there
was deemed a lucky man as well as
a skilled one. While the editorial
page haB always been a thorn in
the side of many of its readers, in
order to get the news, and all of it,
they willingly subscribed for it.
No other paper ever published in
Portland ever kept pace with the
times, but. the Oregonian kept
ahead. Its facilities for gathering
news are first-class and news of all
important events can be found in
its columns daily. "May it live
long and prosper."

This Rovernmont has ones more
taken the diplomatic lead in Chin

endless deadlock ot the foreign
ministers at Pekin, and believing
that their personal experiences had
aroused their' prejudices to such an
extent that It would bo well nigh

Whatever the beer and tobacco
mn can do on the floor of the
house, where they threaten to carry
the fight, there is no doubt of their
having been completely routed in
the first battle on tho bill for the
reduction of the war taxes, made
before the sub-committee composed
of Representative Payne, of New
York; Dalzell, of Pa., and Hopkins
of 111., which has prepared a bill
estimated to cut the annual revenue
between twenty and thirty million
dollars, without reducing the tax
on beer or any class ot tobacco

before being reported to the house.

men that if the brewers taxes were
reduced it would be accepted by the
