THE 1MPESP1SU WAR.
(.VsnmcssMAN Hekmakn has introduced
joint resolution abrogating the I'liivton
Uulwer treaty, between the I'nited Slates
and Great llritaiti. This treaty long since
became obsolete, and changed conditions
have made it inoperative as far as any ben
etit it may bring to (he I' lined States, while
on the contrary it enables Knglaud to haul
ier our control of the Nicaragua canal.
The exclusive ownership and control of the
Nicaragua canal is absolutely necessary to
the commercial grow th of the I'nited states,
besides it is a most important link in our
coast defenses, and congress should not hes
itate to abolish this treaty if it is going to
prevent our controlling the canal.
K.ViUNn expects ibat its census to be
laken next year will show that Great Brit
ain has at last passed France In population,
though its area is but little more than half
as great. The population of France in lsjll
was SftXlW and of Great Britain 37.8SS.

salisfaclorv for years, while lhat in Great
Britain is comparatively large and increas

I'nileJ States will have a population e.ual

tions. Seeing a reason for every step In
Inrm practice will make Hie routine duties
seem less like drudgery. For the young

mestic economy, one on cooklngmid a third
on floriculture ran he profitably studied,
Music need not be neglected, but the prac
tical affairs of the home should be given a
generous share nt the leisure moments.
The Jug-handle trade relations that the
Cleveland administration has established
between tha i'nited Slates and Knglaml Is
clearly set forth in the following from the
London Financial News, the leading Kng
lish financial paper: Practically every
penny that was subscribed here toward the
recent American loan has been got hack
through the expansion in (he exports of
woolens and worsteds; hut the Tinted States
has not confined her Increased purchases
to those articles. , . . On the other hand
we have paid a good deal less for American
wheat, flour, bacon, hams, cheese, tallow
ami cotton, to mention only (hose articles
in which the contraction is most apparent.
War is inevitable between the I'nited
Plates and England. Nations are like in
dividuals: where there is constant friction,
rivalries and mutual jealousies, a collision
is sure to eventually take place. These dif-
lerences between the two countries have ex
isted almost from the first settlement m
America, and were the chief cause of the
revolution. The English have always con
sidered the Americans as their inferiors,
and are always free to express their con
tempt of America and her people at all
times and in all places. It seems to further
exasperate them against us to find that they
cannot run over and bully us about as they
do two-thirds the people of the w orld. The
Americans are equally as free in their re
sentment of these contined insults, and
time only adds to the hatred rather than
cools it between the two nations.
It may be a year, and it may be twenty
years, before this war comes, but come it
will, for it appears to be a part of the des
tiny of nations. Such a contlicf, while it
'would be a terrific one, and a long one,
would be the means of advancing the pro
gress of the English speaking people. In
fact all the world would feel the effects of it
as it did the effects of (he Napoleonic wars.
It would solidify and Americanize America,
and it would break down the feudalism and
aristocracy that hampers and oppresses the
English people; while to the rest of the
world it would bring such a change in po
litical and social conditions as would ad-Tanc-)
the cause of liberty and progress
more than two decades of peace would do.
A perfect bowl has gone up from all
England in protest against the enforcement
of the Monroe doctrine by the I'nited
Slates. The other nations of Europe, with
the exception of Kussiaami France, have to
a greater or less degree protested against
the president's message, these powe.s re-
niaming discreetly silent. Their motive is
easily to tie seen. Neither has any vital in
teres! on the American continent and both
could profit by having England's hands
lied in a war with the I'nited Slates.
Thi republican national committee has
issued its formal call for the assembling of
the republican national convention at St.
Louis on the lGth day of June, 1896. The
invitation is " to republican electors in the
several states and territories, and voters,
without regard to past political affiliations,
who believe in republican principles and
endorse the republican policy." The con
vention, on the usual apportionment will
consist of double the number of senators
and representatives, with four delegates
from each territory, and the district of Co
lombia in addition. This will give a total
of 824 delegates, of whom 90 will be senator
al delegates, required to be chosen by pop
alar state conventions called on 20 days
public notice, and not less than 30 days
before the meeting of the national conven
tion. The state district delegates are re
quired to be chosen br the same method as
congressmen are nominated. An alternate
delegate, who is to act in the absence of the
uational delegate, is also to be elected in
the same manner. This !! make, dele
gates and alternates, a body of l.fXS men
holding official relations to the convention
Okkoon City has always kept to the front
in all that goes to make a live town, and not
to be out of the held of sports has organized
(wo foot ball teams. Ther are not snide
coonlrv teams, either; and a team could be
made up mini the two that could put up a
still g ime against any ef (he college teams
of the state. In their game on Christmas
the Boys showed that they were ni'ide of
the stuff that is in the crack teams, an I we
may yet see the championship of Oregon
held by an Oregon City team.
The high tarill bill to be introduced in
congress this week should pass at once, and
President Cleveland should, if he is consist
ent in his Americanism, sign it at once.
The English have been trying to break us
down financially, (heir latest etfurt in (bis
line being to create a panic in our stocks to
punish us for daring to uphold the Monroe
doctrine, and it is our time to retaliate. A
high tariff for the I'nited States would hurt
England half as much as a war with this
Senator Mitchell has again introduced
his bill providing for an amendment to (be
constitution whereby senators will be
elected direct by the people. This bill will
meet (he fate of (hose that have preceded it,
but the lime will come when it will become
a law. lor popular sentiment is growing in
favor of the amendment and its Influence
will yet be felt even in so conservative a
body as the United States senate.

8P1EIT OF THE PRESS
War with the United States would leave
England a second-rate power. To cope
with (his country would require all her
strength and resources leaving her unable
to control the multitude of interests she has
scattered over the globe. Russia would be
sure to sieze Constantinople and encourage
the Egyptians to throw off the English pro
tectorate, thus causing England to lose con
trol of the Mediterranean and of her highway
through the 8uez canal to India. Russia
would also be sure to occupy coveted strat
egic points on the Indian border and to
push her conquests on the Chinese frontier.
France would seize Malta if encouraged by
Russia, and Spain might recover Oibralter.
England would lose all her American pos
sessions, those on the northern continent
ailing into the hands of the United States,
and those in South America to the adjoin
ingcountries. Her commerce would be ru
ined, and with ber strategetic strongholds j
josr, ami most or ner colonies gone, Eng
land would drop like Holland and Spain to
a second-rate power.
If a bond issue to save the government
from linanual ruin is necessary, and con
gress authorizes one, a radical change
should he made in the manner of disposing
of the bonds. Instead of being in big de
nominations and sold to English buyers at
lb-Mr own price, they should he made in
small denominations and placed on sale in
all the postal money order ofliccs of the
country so that the people could take them
lip and thus keep the interest money at

there are a great many friends of the news
