Industrial development ia going to
take strides in the uttermost comers of
the earth, such as the world baa never
seen. Not only is this development
affecting all the earth, but it ia going
ahead at a speed never before contem
plated. Before man has been satisfied
to apply his genius to comparatively
small limits, but now nothing but a
continent will satisfy his ambition either
in industrial deqelopment, colonization
schemes or avenues of trade and com
Russia no sooner sees her gigantic
railroad nearing completion than she
reaches out for new ports on the Pacific
and not content with half of Europe as
well as Asia she fastens herself on
enough of China to make an empire in
itself. While Russia is reaching after
the great Chinese prize from the
north, England is as active by water
and it is an English dream rapidly
assuming shape, to see Calcutta and
Hong Kong connected by rail. But the
pet scheme dear to every Englishman
that has the matter at all in hand, is the
control of Africa. Starting with Egypt
en the north and Cape Town on the south,
ber outposts have been pushed until
they have nearly met Rhodes has for
years been widening the sphere in the
south while Kitchener has opened the
way in the north. Egypt will become
British in name as well as fact.
Fashoda meant little to Erance and
little to England alone, but all as a
link in the great scheme. Another move
or two on the political chessboard and
England will command contiguous terri
tory from Cairo to the Cape. Inside of
ten years yon can ride the length of
Africa by rail and not leave British
While these schemes of man are at
work in the Old World, America em
barks on plans frougbt with as much for
change. Departing from the doctrines
held since birth she holds the attention
cf the world, while she embarks in the
politics of the world, rather than that of
America, where heretofore she has been
denied the right that will now be ac
corded her Hi at of guardian of the New
Before the present congress shall ex
pire the means will be provided by
' which the canal will be built bringing
its attendant results that will make local
changes in the industrial world that can
be hardly loretold. Change follows
change so fast that we little realize how
little time has passed for such gigantic
works, Africa was only known to
Stanley and his fellow-travelers; China
to no one, Siberia, a waste, and America
a frontier colony, outside of politics and
little approaching the center of trade,
finance or society within the memory of
men now living.
Ox next Monday the annual election
of city officers will take place. Nomi
nations have been made by the "inde
pendent" and "non-partizan" conven
tions, and considerable interest is being
manifested over the contest. 0. I).
Latotiretta, the nominee for mayor on
the independent ticket, has been a citi
ten of this plaoe for twenty years and is
well-known as an able and conscientious
lawyer. He ia deservedly popular
among his brother-lawyers, anJ has
many supporters from all classes. His
record while here gives him good en
dorsement, Rudolph Koerner, the non
partizan candidate, is superintendent of
the Woolen Mills, and Is regarded by
his friends as well qualified for the posi
tion. The contest promises to be
spirited and interesting, but happily ia
devoid of personalties and political bit
terness. Partizanship does not seem to
cut much figure in the election, as some
of the most enthusiastic supporters of
Mr. Latourette are republicans and of
Mr. Koerner are democrats.
Imports of gold into the United States
(or ten months of the present year have
amounted to U3,C58,005; exports, T14
061,849. This gives the enormous bal
ance fl29,.y.Hi,LMG of gold importations in
excess of exportation in ton months;
and this sum will no doubt be increased
to $150,000,000 by the end ol the year.
This sura is more than double the net
imports of gold in any former year of our
country's history. Assurance of main
tenance of the gold Standard has done it.
We are getting back our rightful share
of tbe world's money, which was ex
pelled during many years by 'continuous
issue of silver and of silver paper, in
vast amounts. This folly was the chief
factor in making the panic of 1S93 and
subsequent hari times. Oregonian.
It seems that Schley bad believed or
bad a presentiment that Cervera would
try to escape the night of July 3rd and
Schley on that date changed the connec
tion on the engines ol bis flagship so as
to get greater speed. That same nignt
the troops captured six block houses on
the outskirts of Santiago and burned
them, that being the number of ships in
Cervera's fleet. Cervera believed that
this was a signal to the American fleet
and to fool the Yankees put off tbe dash
for liberty until the following morning.
The circumstance probably largely de
termined the result.
Tub successful completion of the
torpedo boat Davis is a notable event in
shipbuilding for Oregon. A boat of this
type making a full knot over ber re
quired time on her first trial trip is very
unusual and the more so considering
that this is the first torpedo boat built
by this company. This may be and
probably is.tbe beginning of a large ship
building plant on this pait of the coast.
Senator McBbidi in an interview at
Washington expressed himself in favor
of a legislation that would prevent tbe
obligations of this country from being
paid in silyer, and that would pat this
country positively on the gold standard
rather than in the negative manner as
at present. His constituents are with
him in this view of the mometary situa
tion. Spain has at last succomed to tbe in
evitable and accep ted America's terms.
She held out a long time and only gave
up when she realized that no Euro pean
power would take up ber fight. Jeal
ously prevented this in continental
Europe, together with the fear that
England and America would form an
alliance. The latter is feared as much
as the entranca of America in the colon
ial affairs of the Old World.
Lieutenant Huntley explains some
of the things that many friends of the
boys at Manila are anxious about. It is
only when we are able to get authentic
reports that we should pass judgment.
Matters are not as bad as they have
been reported, although it is safe to say
that none of us are anxious to change
places with the boys.
In the Wisconsin the coast adds to tbe
navy a battleship that as great things
may be expected of as of the Oregon.
Built by the same firm, the Union Iron
Works of San Francisco, she may be
expected to do the same work when
called on. She is a sister ship of the
Alabama and Illinois.
With an independent conve ntion held
one night and a non-partizan one held
the next night It might puzzle an out
sider to know what was at stake. But
there is just a slight difference that can
be explained if you have a day off.
The seyere storm that has visited New
England is in strange contrast to the
mild weather here. We have plenty of
rain, but no blizzards. Vessels are lost
on this coast in storms but not by tho
score in Pacific coast harbors.
