The insurgents appear to be gaining ground
and Hpain Is sending more troops to aid In

it is but a question of time when the Island

and robbed Cuba until the Island is nearly

STICK TO THE FAR,M.
A deep discontent i now prevalent
among the farming class and many are
only awaiting the time when they can get
away from the country and go to the city
to live. Especially is this discontent no
ticeable among the boys who are attracted
by the glitter and excitement of city life.
Where one country lad arises to wealth and
influence in th cities there are fifty wbo
are doomed to disappointment and who are
forced into a fierce struggle with poverty
and want. The competition in the cities is
now so sharp that unless a man bas power
ful friends, or is an exceptionally brainy
fellow, there is no possible chance for bis
rising above a day laborer's position. And
with the laboring class competition has
forced them to work for a pittance barely
sufficient to pay tbeir expenses, leaving
nothing to lay by for a start in business or
to ward off becoming a pauper in case of
sickness or accident.
One-half of the farms of Clackamas connty
are for sale. The only reason assigned by
the owners is that they want to move to
town or that their boys have already left
for the city and they cannot longer look
after the farm. If the farmers only real
ized it they are tbe best off of any class. The
fanners' boys especially have far more op
portunities for attaining a competence and
a comfortable home than the boys of tbe
cities. If the country boy acquires tbe same
education and training for bis work that is
absolutely necessary to even a reasonable
success in tbe city, bis cause for discontent
will soon cease and be can live in peace
and plenty with no fear of losing bis job, or
of being evicted by bis landlord, or the fail
ore of a bank ruining his business.
Wkst Virginia has passed a law forever
disfranchising a man bavin been convicted
of selling his vote, or of asking money for
it. Such a law would do some good in Ore
gon, though its need Is largely done away
with by our present ballot law which makes
vote buying an unprofitable business, as the
ward beeler is unable to know whether be
received the goods or not.
It may be a surprise to our mill men to
know that Nashville, Tennessee, is the larg
est manufacturer of hardwood lumber in
the United States as well as of the world. It
is the greatest milling city of the Soath,
and is one of the cities whose industries
have been wholly built up si.ice the war.
The exodus to Alaska this season prom

A return tide has set in with ear foreign im
migration and nearly as many are return
ing as come over. But the serious part is
that it is tbe educated, law-abiding immi
grants who are returning to their native
lands, whilst the lawless, ignorant rabble
from Sontbern and Central Europe are
pouring in in still greater numbers. On this
subject The Interior of Chicago has the fol
lowing pointed remarks:
There is a general jubilation in tbe East
over the fact that the tide of immigration
has turned, and thousands are going back
to the old world every week Irom Ameri
can ports. But so far as we see our ex
changes fail to note that it is tbe wrong
crowd that is going back. It is not the Nea
politan but tbe Dane ;'not tbe Hun but tbe
Swede. The Mosts and the Schwabs and
the Niebes and tbe I.ings only flow in one
direction. We are losing thousands of hon
est workmen upon whom conditions of life
in the old world never pressed so heavily
but they are willing to return to it. But the
drastic measures introduced in every legis
lative txxly of Europe to purge itself of an
archists, will result in dumping upon our
shores a less desirable class than ever. In
dustrial depression has no terrors for a class
that never wanted to work; and riot and
turbulence attract the riotous as the thun
der of the captains and the shoutings draw
the war horse to the field of conflict. Un
less measures for our relief are promptly in
troduced we shall have fewer immigrants,
but worse ones.
Sandt, March 18. As your scribe over
heard a conversation inquiring what had be

don't write any more, to show that he is still
alive I will again give a few items.
Saint Patrick's day Is bright, clear, and
warm and nice as a day in May, and tbe
splendid weather we are baring Is prized
by all, especially tbe farmer w ho Is as busy
as ever sowing grain. About two-thirds of
the spring grain is sown, and a good deal is
tip and looks fine. Fruit trees will soon be
in full bloom. Grass is green and growing,
and the sweet melodies of the song birds
can he heard. Everything shows that
spring is here.

China is at last making serious efforts to
secure peace with Japan. The emperor bas
sent his chief viceroy, Li Hung Chang, to
Japan with full powers to arrange the terms
of peace with the emperor of Japan. Japan
will demand a heavy money indemnity as
well as a cession of territory and valuable
commercial privileges as the price of peace.
In the mean time her armies continue their
steady advance on Peking1 with the Chi
nese army offering but a feeble resistance.
The prospet is good, if Li does not get a
tiurryon him and give the Japs some evi
dence of the sincerity of bis mission, tbat
tbe capital of his country will be in the
bands of tbe Japanese and his emperor a
captive or a fugitive. .
