AS HE SAW THINGS.
THE CAPTAIN'S BATTLE.
- President Roosevelt, in the Schley
"appeal; has declared that Santiago
was a cabtain's battlei and that
neither Sampson nor Schley was in
command. If Sampson had been
in the fight instead of 10 miles a-
way, the question is, would Rooce
velthave decided otherwise than
that William Sampson was the rea
and only commander.
In every, battle on sea or land
since soldiers' were disciplined and
bad commanders, in case of death,
disablement or absence of thecom
raander-in-chief the next officer in
rank has always exercised command ,
' and in" such cases hereafter until
there are no more wars, he will so
continue to do. It is to fix author
itv and to determine the extent of
authority, and for no other purpose;
that rankB are established and that
one officer outranks another. The
one case in all history and in all
time in which this order will not
be true according to the official re
cord, is the battle of Santiago', at
which Winfield Scott Schley and
none other, was the officer of high
est rank and in absolute authority,
Fortunately for Sclhey, the court
of last resort in his case, is the sov
ereign people. From their decisi m
there is no appeal. Their ; verdict,
attested by their plaudits wherever
Schlev eoes, is clear and resonant
as the trumpet notes of Gabriel,
and all the Roosevelts and Longs
in creation cannot wipe it out.
-The Logging -Case The Kings Valley
People win for the Present. ;
Judge " " Hamilton has banded
down a decision in the. Kings "Val
ley logging case, tried at the last
term of courts He does not pass
on the constitutionality of the log
ger's law. " He holds that there is
no gronnd for Dunn, Frantz and
the other defendants to be enjoined,
because they have not so far done
anything to monopolize and exact

The Pacific Monthly.
The opening numbers of' the Pacific
Monthly for 1902 are '" fully up to the
promise of its publishers. The number
for February was especially interesting.
Its leading article, splendidly illustrated,
on the "Great Caves of Oregon," was
prepared by George M Weister. Two
articles following, each with illustrations
are, "Old Chief Seltice" by J Mayne
Baltimore, aud a poem, "Meditation",
by Mrs Lischen Miller. "At the . Con
fessional" a story . by WFG Thacher , a
'The Native Women of Alaska" by Mrs
Miller, and the ' Skylark of Oregon" a
poem by Andrew Franzen, completes the
contributors department- :
" The announcement that in the March
number that Captain Cleveland Rock
well will contribute an article on "The
Great Columbia Basin" and articles by
Mrs Eva Emery Dye and other promin
ent writers, affords warrant for a wide
spread interest. The edition will be the
finest illustrated number of any magazine
issued on the Pacific Coast. In the Ap
ril number will appear an article on
."Our Coast Line" by , Joseph H Wilson,
of Los Angeles, Cal, also interesting il
lustrated sketches by Fred Lockley,Jr.

A Neighborhood of Corvallisites Make
Public . Acknowledgments to the :
& i" Council. . y ;
Residents of the vicinity recently
petitioned . the city council for a
street light at the corner of Twelfth
and Monroe. There, the deep and
widejcollege ditch yawns and yawns
for the pedestrians as they pass by,
and occasionally gets a batch. The
light, it was figured, would warn
pedestrians of their danger and save
them from dropping off the cross
walk into the caverns below.
The city fathers did not grant
the petition for a light. As a mat
ter. of fact the Light Company de
clined to supply it. Instead of the
light, however, the street commit
tee was ordered to put a suitable
banister along the crossing, and
the adornment has been completed.
Unfortunately, citizens of the vi
cinity don't like its architectural de
sign. They have framed a thank
ful communication to the council,
and have requested the Times to
publish it.. Here it is:
' 'The citizens in . the vicinity; of
1 2th and Monroe streets, wish to

Most of the vaccination - patients
have hot been feeling well for

By the same token, girl students

almost severe enough to prevent

Though in few instances the pa

as severe as a live case of small
