JOHNS Mob Chases Hindus from City in-1 Hurry St Toll us was iu most bordering on anarchy for a few minutes Monday evening. As result several Hindu laborers were bandied In a manner that was pretty "rough and wholesale arrests were made. The trouble had been brew ing for some time on account of the imbiber of Hindus constantly in creasing at the St. Johns lumber mill. White men, it has been said, have been replaced by these tur baued fellows, and a strong feeling of animosity toward them was en gendered. It is understood tliat they have been giveu strong hints Jto leave the city by ncvcral of the young men who are said to have btfen in" the mob, but no uttcntiou was paid tb this arbitrary demand. The feeling of animosity against the Hindus was greatly augmented by the report of an increase iu the , number of Johnny Bull's subjects, 'and the fact that several had .rented quarters and were living, overhead business bouse on Jersey strew A crowd of Hindu haters met Mon day oiight, either by accident or design, upon the street, andjhreats were made of chasing them all out of town..

With this inten tion a crowd made for the quarters occupied "by the Hindus, while others went to the mill, vhichMs running' night and day. Every Hindu that was encountered was peremptorily ordered to. stop work .and. get out of town at once. If auy kesitaucy Wm shown several of the mob grabbed the man and escorted him to the street car, and the manner in which he was takeii up the hill waa decidedly rough. The same procedure was adopted at the Hindu habitations. T,be mob becauie more and more ex cited every momeut .and several of the Hindus were struck with fists andiatlcks, and window panes were broken and doors battered.

The soundness of the , chiefs advise gradually began to ' K impress them, and their criminal -acta were abaudoued.

" s' theTiot, the man( indicated "was at once placed under arrest. No pro testation of innocence or proof of an alibi availed in x freeing the bus- Eccts, and one and all to the Burn er of 27 were garnered at police headquarters in the city hall. The only manner in which any could espapc from going to the county jail was to furnish ball in the sum of ,iooo cash, or $ 2000 paper. " A dozen" succeeded in securing bonds, but the other 15 were taken to Fort Stevens. That the mob was woefully wrong in taking the radical steps they did is conceded by all. It Was the very worst method that could possibly be adopted, and nothing but-censure can be attached to their condition ni.l!!5!: !S?,b!!'? If the people of which the mob was composed had grievances' against the Hindus a method inside the limit of the law should have been adopted, and not by riot and. bru tality. While the Hindus arc' aa un desirable class of citizens by reason of their grotesque appearance and filthy condition, yet they ate human beings ana entitled to our pro tcction. so long as they conduct themselves iu a proper manner. .It may be. true that they have usurped white labor at the mill, and it may not be truc-vc do not know. But we do know that several times during the past ycur the mill man agement has sent men to look around the street corners itf quest tor men to do work at the mill, but the Idle mcti approached invariably expressed themselves as not caring to do that kind of work. White men have been tried time and ogaiu on the rougher work, and the man agement never knew whether, they would be back at work next morn-. ing or not probably not. There was ever three shifts one coming, one going ana one at worK. As a last result to keep the mill going, the black men were employed. And they could always be depended up on. It able to work at all they would be en hand every day. -They were not. paid the wages as a' gen eral rule that, were paid white men because they are not worth as much as American labor, being more slow and deliberate in their movements. The mill mnM net afford te aunt down becau.se white mH" eitltvr Would not work or could not be secured, and as long' as Hindus would, work and.iuake up in a shortage of pay, what they lacked iu ability to perform their 'tasks, was it hot their right and privilege so. to do? J Here may be otner phases to the situajion that we are not cognizant of, but these are the facts from the mill men's point of view. It is, on the other hand, a far from nlcasinsf sight to see these daik-skiuucd fellows, who' will not conform" to American .customs, parading up aud down the public thoroughfares and it does not speak well for a city that employs them, "Of course they are entitled to a living, but they should adopt thedresti of the country, take a bath occasionally and-atteinpt to become citizens of the United States instead of coming here and scrap iug up all the money they can, giv ing Hothing in return, and then de camping to their native heath with good American ceia in their pockets. It is too bed that their nasslous got away with the better judgment of the young men concerned in this unhappy 'affair, and it is to ' be Hoped tnat none put me guiuy win suner inconsequence. 1 utrt were some men arrested who claim that they were not participants in any degree, and this fact will be proven.

The rroeltiou of a high bridge at St. Johns should net be lost sight of these political days. The bridge is a necessity and would -be of immense value to, the city. The project, ia a large one and it will be some time before it materializes, out steps toward acquiring it can nst be taken (00 soon. No better time than Jthc present to begin pre liminary"proccedlngs could be de sired. It is impossible to secure a free ferry at this time, aud, in fact, it is not probable for a number of years to come. The bill authoris ing the county to operate a free ferry at this point was limited to two years only, and that time is drawing mighty near to a close. The county officials have refused to op.Tutc the present ferry, and the chances of calling a special election and voting bonds for a new one are almost nil. Anyhow, this could not be done within the time specified in the bill that passed the legislature eighteen -months ago through the efficient work of Hon. K. C. Couch. Since we have failed to take advantage, of this act, it is not likely that the legislators will pass another bill extending the time. This being the status of the matter in reeard to a free ferry, it is questionable if we shall have such an institution here within the next five veers. By that time a high bridge should be erected between St. Johns end Whitwood Court. It is the only point where a suspension bridge can easily be built between here and the steel bridge. , All big uudertakiugs.auot have a beginning and we contend ' that right new M the time to get under way with this project. The legislature, meets again this fall, and a petition with, all the names of voters on the Pe ninsula, the west side aud. many from Portland proper should be. got ten in readiness and presented to that body when it next convenes. Such a petition of set of petitions could not fail in securing their care ful and thoughtful attention. To, get such a petition circulated properly. would require the services several good mea for several weeks. To provide a fund forucur rying this work on, a mass meeting should be called and subscriptions solicited,. Every business man in St. Johns, no doubt, would be in terested enough iu the project to lend a little financial assistance. The' cost would be small aud- the benefit great. Why not make the effort? The Commercial Club might well, devote a portion of its time to this proposition and provide ways and means for carrying the work along, Now is the .time to. get busy.

He says cap ital of the country is easy and it is coming this way for investment iu Isrge quantities. Prospects for this year are the best, he says, the Northwest has ever known. He naturally attributes a very large pert of the activity aud hustle here about to the large amount of mil- road building now underway This, work, he says, is showing the cpn fidence the leaders in the financial world have in this section and' it 'naturally breeds confidence iu others. Many Men at Work John F. Stevens, president of the Oregon- Trunk railway, now under construction up the Deschutes to Central Oregon, says 5000 men are at work pu the 109 mites now under construction,, or nearly as many men as ever were employed 011 the construction of the 370 miles of the North Bank road. He says the new Hue is of the most modern construction and the whole thing is being pushed with the utmost pos sible euergy, The present plan is to build south only as .far as Bend. although maps have been filed from fiend south to the Klamath Indian Reservation.

Bcutlcy The Price of Meat Paradoxical as it may seem to the unenlightened, the increased price of meat unquestionably will be of very great advantage to the public. At least it will Induce thinking men and women, mid a few who do not think, to give sonic consideration to the subject of scien tific dietetics. I he more otic studies this subject the more one is com pelled to realize that, meat Is not by any means a necessary article of food, for one possessed 01 a healthy stomach. One should also rciuciu- cr that when meat is not obtain able, one is not by nuy means deprived of animal food. For in stance, milk and eggs and cheese, and the various products of the dairy, arc animal foods, und they practically take tne place ot meat as far as nourishing .the body is concerned, even for one who has the impression that an animal diet is necessary. buch an impression, However, is entirely unjustifiable. Meat is not necessary to life oc to health; iu fact, none of the animal products arc necessary to health. There may be conditions of disease, whcrc tin- uial food, such as is found iu milk and eggs, is absolutely essential to (he building up of the vigor aud vitality that arc lucking under cer tain circumstances. Iu fact, there may be diseased conditions where even red meat can be used witli ad vantage, but a careful study of the diet question, aud of the physical condition of those who perform various duties, will convince one beyond all possible doubt that au animal diet predisposes towards disease. Iu other words, it is in clined to fill the sy.stem with poi sons und' effete, matter which clog the tissues, aud which are the cause of serious acute and chronic diseases.
