SANITARY WORK OF OUR ARMY IN
Whatever, diverse views way be enter
tained regarding the wisdom of our pres
ent policy in the Philippines, no one will
be disposed to discredit the teotimony of
General LoyJ Wheaton as to the sanitary
benefits conferred by our army of occu
pation. MiPtarism is never quite so defensible
as when employed in the business of
cleaning up the plague and disease
breKling spots of the earth. For this
work the army is splendidly organized
and equipped. As an agency for sanita
tion and disinfection it lias no equal. It
ci.n enforce sanitary and health regula
tions with superb disregard for the ob
stinacy of ignorance. The work of the
British army in cleansing the plague
ipnts of India and driving ignorant and
stubborn natives into the hospitals at the
point of the bayonet has commanded the
admiration of the civilized world. The
work of our army in transforming Cuba
from a filthy and pestilential fever-breed
ing island into a land of health and sani
tation will be the most creditable act
that history Till record in telling the
gtory of our intervention.
What the army has done in the Philip
pines in the establishment of sanitary
measures for checking the frightful mor
- Ulitv from smallpox and the bubonic
plague can hardly fail to mitigate the Be
aaverity of the criticism that has been
heaped upon the army. Of course there
baa been much loss of life as a result of
the war, but General Wheaton declares
that the mortality from that souroe seems
infinitesimal when one takes into consid
eration the tundreds of thousands of
lives that have been saved by reason of
the sanitary precautions of the American
armv and the Taft commission. The
general plactft the number saved in this
way at half a million. Compulsory vac
cination, enforced in every province and
town, has stamped out smallpox. In
General Bell's department alone 300,000
were vaccinated. By prompt and vigor
oua measures the army also succeded in
preventing the bubonic plague from get
ing a footbold in the islands.
Upon such work as this must rest the
justification of our military occupation of
the Philippines. Civilization, not com
mercialism, can alcne excuse our con
tinued assertion of sovereignty over the
dueed. Greatest not only lit the privi
leges of its ritisens and their ability to
take part and enjoy to the fullest the
many material intellectual and social
blessings hut greatest in it power and
force in the earth and greatest in its
ability to bring to other people these
same blessings. On this day we should
realize that the fathers of this govern
ment in order to give the blessings we
enjoy to their posterity had to give up
much and they placed themselves io the
shadow of the hangman's noose to gain
the freedom we enjoy. These are some
of the things we should not forget and
turn the day over entirely to noise.
Tils efforts of several people iu this
city to bring about a satisfactory settle
ment iu the r. C. A. O. strike are very
commendable. Strikes are deplorable.
This one has caused inconvenience to
residents of Poitlaud and Oregon City
and intermediate points. The accident
to the Grey Eagle was unfortunate in
more than one way. Fesidea a loss to
the Oregon City Transportation Coin
pany, which has had to bear its share of
loss of late, it has prevented the installa
tion of a faster schedule and the travel
ing public has suffered thereby. The
sympathy of the people of this city has
been largely with the employes but a
strong drsire for a settlement of the diili
culty has aUays been entertaiued.
The selection of lion. A. S. Dresser as
orator of the day of July Fourth is a high
compliment to his ability as a speaker.
No man in the city is better fitted. A
deep thinker, a lawyer with a judicial
turn of mind, a talker who is careful in
his choice of language, Mr. Dresser will
hold the attention of his audience and
will deliver an instiuctive and entertain

The Kansas farmers have overcome
the physical inertia of the bobo. They
did it with a gun. The deficiency of
farm hands in Kansas is estimated at
bout 10,000 men. The harvest fields,
with their golden seas of overripe grain,
re calling for men. A freight train
westward bouud was wrecked near the
town ol Pratt. On the train were fifty
or sixty tramps bound for Colorado for
their health. The farmers heard of it
nd offered them (2 per day and plenty
of good food and shelter. They de
clined the offer. Thereupon the farmers
tried shotgun persuasion with the result
that nearly all of the tramp are now
toiling in the harvest fields of Pratt
County, and they will be kept at it
until the wheat is all garnered. The
picturesque feature of the episode ia
furnished by the women of the farms,
who are acting guards, each armed

BATTLE OF THK BALLOTS.
There is considerable sensation
In regard to education
Which seems to trouble the people who
live on the West Side.
Ebey had an election trie other day,
To see who would have the say
In administering the laws by which the
others should aoide.
The Irish and the Dutch
Against the English and theUcotch
Had a battle of the ballots which laid the
latter in the shade.
There was talk of dissolution,
Like a Southern revolution,
Ann threats of annihilation with great
frequency were made.
Mike Clancy and his band
Made a most di-terinined stand
Against the allied forces of Humphry
And nothing amounted to much
Against the Irian and the Dutch,
so the English and their minions were
completely swept away.
It the rising generations
Of the Scotch and English nations
Can continue electing level heads to guide
their young careers,
They will soon becone enlightened
And their social standing heightened
Till they'll equal the Dutch and Irish
whom they now concede their peers.
But their night is getting lighter.
And their prospects getting brighter
And emancipation from their density it
seems is now quite near;
For with a sense of duty's call
And in justice to them all,
Mike Clancy will run with Hansen in the
election there next Fall,
