Bryan will publish a daily edi tion of hiB Commoner in St. Louis du' ing the convention. "All will be treated alike." MciirHY, the Tammany chieftain, says this U a Democratic year and Cleveland would be elected if nominated. So, he thinks, would several others. Word comes from far-off Texas that it will hold nominating conventions with the purpose of entering their very dark horses in the presidential campaign. Tbe more the merrier. Sknatok Gorman, of course, holds aloof from the Senatorial contest in Maryland between Smith and Kay nor, both Democrats . Ether is good enough for anybody. It is a far cry from Alaska to Hawaii, but both of these territories wiil send delegates to Chicago. Filipino and Porto Rican will now stand up and try to read the constitution: Mr. Bryan sayB that Mr. Blank is his candidate for preeident, "some dark horse."

Was the destruction of the Venesuela fleet by Germany and England a vindi cation of the Monroe Doctrine? Or wai it the same sort of vindication we are exhibiting in seizin Panama?

This awful result is explained by the revelation that among the dead picked up after the so-called "bat tle" there were many women and child ren who fought our troops and faced our machine guns armed only wi'h knives and sticks. It might be a good plan for tbe Presi. dent to appoint a commission to find out whether the rage to ratify the Panama treaty is in the interest of the transcon tinental railroads who do not wiBh to have any canal whatever constructed at the isthmus. Tbe theory is consider ably more than plausible. Thus ; these railroads are vociferous for the Panama route, declare all others impracticable, and want the treaty satined at once, immediately, right way, toute da suite. But they would give the forty millions that the canal company demands not to have any canal whatever built between the two oceans. How do these facts jibe? Suggestive, isn't it? Espedally as the American engineer Haupt affirms that it would take forty years to dig through the mountains for the Panama canal. President Sciiurman, of Cornell Uni versity, who was McKinley's Commis sinner to the Philippines, declared last week in a speech that action of the ad ministration concerning Panama was tbe destruction of the Monroe Doctrine and the beginning of a policy of violent expansion which would ultimately result in an effort to annex all of the South American Republics to the United States. Whitelaw Reid will consider that optimistic I On next Tuesday night the Democrats of Oregon City have been called to meet at the Williamette hall for the purpose of organizing a Democratic club. It is to be hoped that a goad attendance will be out and that the cl ib may start off under the most favorable circumstances. It is a good work. Let every honeBt man who believes at heart in the doc trines of the Democratic party attend this meeting and lend the Democrats of Oregon City a helping hand. Congress has had two months of dawdling but now promises a busy week. Committees have reported and there is enough work for both houses on the calendar. Executive ousinees has the right of way. But there will be plenty of talk, if not discussion, on the Panama outrage, the postoffice scandals, and other more or lean fragrant topics The Hepburn bill giving the Interstate Commerce Commission custody of pure food transit, is urgent for consideration. We are now promised a business month. A great agricultural discovery has been reported in Western Kansas and Eastern Colorado. It is that by the aid of the summer fallout it Is possible to save BDongh moisture in the soil from one year to enable a good crop to be raised where this can not be done by depending upon the rainfall of a Bingle season. The fact has been a familiar one for many years to farmers of East ern Oregon and Eastern Washington, who by this plan are enabled to raise every alternate year heavy crops of wheat in districts in which the total rainfall for a year is only from 12 to 18 inches. In fact, good crops have been obtained when the fall of rain was only about lOincheB. "Since time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the contrary" the verdict ol coroner's juries have been the laughinn Btock and the butt:f jocke and ridicule among sensible men the world over. Tne bitrgoBt monument to human folly which a coroner's jury has erected to its general ineompetaticy and failure to roach correct results is to be found in the verdict of coronors jury in Chicago which investigated the Iroquois tueatre disaster. Among other things they held the Mayor of the city to answer the Grand jury for the consequences of the iire. The Mayor was ptomptly discharg ed when taken before a Circuit Judge on a writ of habeas corpus. The idea seems to have been that the Mayor was crim iually responsible for the carelessness of his subordinates iu office. It would be juet as good reasoning to arreat the President of the United States and hold him criminally liable for the slealing of his subordinate appointees. In his probable conflict with the Muscovite faces a different problem from that of the knanates ia Central Asia, which have been overrun, one by one, and quite different from that of China and Manchuria. During the Boxer war when the walls of a Chinese fort had to be breached with dynamite, and those who placed it would surely die, the Japanese geperal aBked for "volunteers who would go and die." The number effering was so great that he had to select the heioes who were willing to die for their country's pres tige. Taking the dynamite they went jocund, to death, and their comrades who cried "Sayonnara." farewell, en vied them the glory of their service. In fighting such people it will not do to put too much trust in numbers, especially when the numbers are ignorant, stupid, brutal and without patriotism, Russia has impressed the military world more by the display of her armies in the an nual parades than by handling them in battle. Her prestige as a military pow er has been achieved at reviews rather than on the field. In the Boxer war her soldiers were distinguished by bes tiality of the lowest order, rather than by conduct in battle. The world, look ing on at the prospective struggle, hails gallant little Japan, and commends her to the favor of all the gods of battle After An extended investigation of European food products, principally in London, Paris and Berlin, under the am picei of the National Pure Food Asso ciation, Professor Robert M. Allen de clares that '60 per cent of the French wines and 80 per cent of their cham pagnes are adulterations or imitations.' 'The American people,' he declares, 'have been drinking labels.' To hun dreds of importers and dealers in this country this is not a revelation com ments the Chicago Record-Herald. To the consumers of 'French wines and champagnes,' however, it is an interest ing and somewhat startliug disclosure. As tbe statement of Professor Allen is based upon the analyses of 10,000 well selected samples of wines and cham pagnes, in much of which was found coloring matter, saccharine and acids deleterious to health, it will be accept ed as a timely and unanswerable argu ment agaiust further delay in the enact ment of a national pure food law. FORM NEW LODGE. Oddfellows Institute a Thriving Camp at Garfield. A number of Oddfellows went to Gar field Saturday night to assist in the in stituting of a lodge at that place. Tbe new lodge will sttrt with 32 charter members, there being 10 members who were members of lodges, and il candi dates were initiated Saturday night. The formation of the lodge took place in 'he i range hall at Gar held, and the session continued all night.

These were j lined at Milwaukie by Richard Scott, John Risley and John Wetzler. The party went to Cazadero on the electric line and walked from that place to Garfield, a distance of about four miles. Some troubled was experi enced in finding the trail to Garfield, as itwasdaikand the country was un familiar to the visitors. John Oooke claimed that he knew every mudhole in the trail, and this statement was proved to the entire satisfaction of the crowd, lor it is thought not a single one was missed, Thoee fiom this city state they naa a most enjoyable time, J hey re turned Monday.
