"Scour the camp. Take overcoats

cannot get the overcoats we will have
no guard at all. We are short of over
coats and blankets. Now we are going
to infringe on the hospitality of Califor
nia and see if we can get the loan o(
what we need. Failing in that, I will
make arrangements with Governor Geer
to buy blankets and overcoats from the
quartermaster's department, and then
lei the boys turn them in to the state of
Oregon, receiving the money they paid
for them. .
"The government should have pro
vided these things for the returning vol
unteers. AVe are the pioneers of an
army to come from Manila, and, let ine
tell you, if something is not done it will
i be worse here than it was in Cuba.
There will be hundreds of deaths from
pneumonia. The United States should
turn over to the hospital at least 5000
blankets and 5000 overcoats. They will
be needed, and as their use will be only
temporary, the government can have
them back again. If this is not done
l-ni Fiancieco is going to be a great
eravevard for the volunteers."
General Summers, of the Second Ore
gon regiment, has spoken in no uncer
tain tones concerning the negligence of
the government in failing to provide
suitable clothing for the Oregon volun
teers. The clothing the Oregon men wore in
the tropical Philippines is all they have
to protect their bodies from the pneumonia-laden
fog of the Presidio.

The Philippine Campaign Not a
Washington, July 18. A severe jolt
was given the administration today by
the publication of the "round robin"
protest of the newspapermen against the
censorship at Manila. It brands the
management of the Philippine cam
paign as one of incompetency and evi
dently shows that the right kind of a
man is not in command.
: It may be that General Otis is not act
ing under his own volition, but upon in
struction from Washington, when he
has decided to keen from the people of
the United States the facts concerning
the real conditions. It is absurd to be
lieve that the publication of reverses
and the necessity for more troops would
have assisted the Filipinos in their in
surrection. Tl.e "round robin" tells more than
appears on the surface. It shows that
there never has been troops enough, and
it has been the intention of somebody to
deceive the people. General Otis' dis
patches for more than a month contin
ually predicied the downfall of the Phil
ippine insurrection, and day after day
the people of the United States were in
formed that the end was about to come
Evidently he was mii-informed, or he
was carrying out- instructions wnicn
never should have been given him. It
seems as if the managers of the Philip
pine campaign, both in Washington and
Manila, were being forced into a uil-de-
sac ; one object after another has been
dodged by running hither and thither.
Now the facts are laid bare and some
decisive action must be taken.
If General Otis has been a failure and
has not kept the administration correct
ly informed, he should be at once re
lieved and some of the fighting ofheers
in the Philippines placed ih charge, un
til a man like Miles could reach Manna.
Whetlier the administration will have
the courage to take'serious action is just
now puzzling everybody here. If the
newspapermen are wrong, they should
pe ordered from the Philippines ; if right,
there should be a change in the head ot
the American army in the islands.
Nothing has occurred recently to
cause a sensation as the joint production
frfiru the Manila correspondents, and
everybody is wondering how the ad
ministration wll avoid decisive action.
San Francisco, July 18.-An Oregon
volunteer was fo.ind on guard duty to
night at the Presidio wearing four suits
of clothes, with a piece of flannel rihirt
tied about his neck for a mutller. He
had borrowed these things from the
boys in his company. A year or two
ago he was a Stanford senior weiging
170 pounds; now he is reduced to 120
and looks like a shadow.
Scores of men in the Oregon regiment
are passing through this experience,
while the war department is busy with
the eternal red tape. Another effort
was made by the Red Cross Society and
General Summers to have the Oregon!-
ans provided with overcoats and blan
kets. It is thought that by tomorrow
Adjutant Babcr ck, of this city, will re-
eive orders to draw these articles lroni
the quartermaster. Meanwhile, uie
soldiers are borrowing (rom each other,
while half of the boys are obliged to re
main in their tents or take the conse
quences in the fog and wind outside.

Otis or Correspondents.
New York, July 18. The Washing
ton correspondent of the Herald quotes
a member of the cabinet as follows:
Either Major-Geneial Otis or the news-
nnnpr enrresnondents must go. To de-
1 1 1 - ..,
port the correspondents would probabl y
be accepted at home and abroad as a re
turn to the old Spanish method of muz
zling the press. To relieve Major-General
Otis will mean an official acknowl
edgement of his fault and a demoraliza
tion of military discipline."
The above statement was made when
the member of the cabinet wag asked to
discuss the problem which confronts the
administration as a result of publication
of the newspaper correspondents'
"round robin" protesting against the
course of General Otis in preventing the
real facts regarding the Philippine sit
ation from becoming known.

It would almost seem as though a man to make a

To illustrate, a short time ago a customer wanted
to buy a quantity of ready mixed white paint for inside
work. I took a lot of pains to explain to him that there
was only one kind of white paint to use for inside work and
that was a fiat white; or in other words a white mixed with
turpentine instead of Linsesd Oil; that any inside white'
paint mixed with Linseed Oil would turn yellow.
While I had a cheap inside white paint I would
not reccomend it to this customer because I knew his
work was such that he would not be satisfied with a dingy
yellow white later on.
The paint I wanted him to use was Masury's flat
white; or, as I told him, he could make his own by mixing
white lead with turpentine. Nothing short of this would
make a pure permanent white for inside work. After all
I might as well have sold the cheap paint as he finally
bought the same grade the kind I wouldn't sell and
paid 5 cents a gallon more than I ask for it. However,
when his paint is yellow and old before it's time he may
remember what I told him about fiat white and ordinary
