FACTS WITHOUT COMMENT.
Fob the year 1896 the appropriation
for the navy was (in round numbers)
' tlx 1898, the year of the Spanish war,
it was $58,000,000.
Last year it was $55,100,000. 1
This year the bill as reported to the
house calls for $77,00,000, with authori
zation for additional naval construction
which, included in the bill, as it should
be, would swell tbe total to nearly H00,
00,000. The entire ordinary expenditures of
the government twelve years ago were
less than $300,000,000.
CHRISTIAN SOLDIERY. '
A wave of fear and horror preceded
the advent of the allies in China to sucli
an extent that in many of the villages
people committed suicide to save them
selves from their Christian conquerors.
Soldiers were so busy looting that tbey

One of these forays visited the citV of
Tuliu, which was entered without firing

officer and two privates. The troops
looted and burned the town.
When another large city was entered

ants were non-combatants and unarmed,
Incapable of resistance. The day the
allied forces took possession the streets
teemed with people and the daily life
and business flowed normally. The

streets were deserted, except by German

city was systematically looted. The

Washington, Feb, 15, 1901.
By standing together in their .opposL
lion to the ship subsidy bill, the demo,
cratic and populist senators have forced
the republicans to change their tactics.
They began the tight last week by blus
tering and bragging about how easy
they would tire out the opposition by
night sessions. After holding two niuht
sessums, at neither of which a republi
can quorum whs maintained, they aban
doned the night sessions, and are now-
seeking to cajole the opposition into
agreeing to set a time for voting on the
bill. hile it is impossible to sav with
any degree of certainty wht the result
or this change of tactics will be, Senator
Jones, who is leading the opposition.
says the bill will not be voted upon ,t
this session, end thftt if the republicans
are determined to pass it, they must do
so at an extra session of the next con
Mr. McKinley is pulling for an extra
session, provided, of course, that a valid
excuse can be put forward for calling
one, and the republican leaders in the
senate are pulling to avoid an extra
session, by leaving no valid excuse for
one. An amendment has already been
offered to the army appropriation bill,
by Senator Spooner, giving Mr. McKin
ley authority to establish a civil govern
ment in the Philippines, and one is now
being prepaied setting forth the condi
tions that Cuba mnst comply with to
get the U. S. troops withdrawn.
Three of Mr. McKinley's nominations
to be brigadier-generals, Wood, Bell
and Grant may be held up permanent
ly. All the other nominations for gen
erals, including that of Miles, to be
lieutenant general, have been favorably
reported to the senate and will at once
be confirmed, but the committee on
military affairs, after several members
had expressed the opinion that these
three officers had not seen sufficient
service to entitle them to promotion
over many older and more' experienced
officers, decided to delay action upon
the nominations until a further inves
tigation could be made of their military
records. Wood was promoted over
more than five hundred officers and Bell
over more than one . thousand, while
Fred Grant, although he is now serning
in the Philippines as as a brigadier gen
eral of volunteers, is regarded as practi
cally a civilian.
Senator Bacon tells an amusing and
instructive story of the methods of le
islation in the Mexican congress meth
ods which the republicans have to an ex
tent already introduced in one branch
of our congress. Speaking of his visit
to the lower house of the Mexican con
gress, Senator Bacon said : "I went
there day after day and never saw a
member rise and address the Chair. Bill
after bill was passed without a vote in
the negative and without a word of dis
cussion. I became very much interested
in this state of affairs, and not being
able to speak Spanish, I inquired of a
gentleman at the door who spoke Eng
lish, to explain the situation to me.
'Oh,' he replied, 'there is no need for
any debate. These bills are sent to us
by the president and he tells us that he
wants them passed. When he lets us
know that he is in favor of the bills, we
are all in favor of them, too.' "
A proposition to make Cuba pay the
expenses incurred by this country dur
ing the war with Spain, has been put
forward by Representative Levy, of
New York, but probably with more de
sire to fuddle the situation than to seri
ously push the idea of trying to make
Cuba pay our war expenses.
Imagine what a rattling there would
be among the dry bones and wet

visit Oregon City, and begin the work of

Phillip Koob would look on with dismay
at the improvements he has made;
Matthias would take refuge in Buech's
cellar ; Wallace Cole would complain of
the wanton destruction of valuable
property, while Ohailey Kelly would get

make a free silver Fpeech ; Charles Nob

One Saturday afternoon the writer went
to Long Bench, and on the boat was a
widow who kepi a lodging house aojoiii'
ing the printing office, and she volun
teered the information tnat her daugh
ter, another young lady and Davenport
were camped at the beach, and exiemied
an earnest invitation lo dine with them
while there. However, when the 11
waco dock was reached, it was learned
that the landlady of the lodging house
had a 100-pound basket of supplementary
provisions lor the Long Beach camp,
which the writer tugged up the incline
to the waiting cars. The following day
was spent at the camp. McGuire, presi
dent of the EaBt Portland Water Com

McGuire tequested him to sketch t ie
