eo verrior. when, asked ; about the
outlook of Oregon politics .'from .hie
standpoint. "I have received ma
ny letters from prominent repupu-
cans from all over the state,, 'some
of whom supported me; durinehe
Ub camsaienr and ; some who did
bot,' expressing satisfaction .with
my administration and ; promising
me' their support against any, other
man. - :
This support is. promised .on the
erOund fthst it : isn't a question jof
politics, but the faithful adminis
tration of the affairs of state, in the
Interest of I taxpayers." '
"What is. the record on ; which
you are going to ask for re-election?"
was asked and Oregon e. democrat
ic governor eat up and took notice,
State taxes wul be. lighter this
year than they have been for. years,
as the people wilt know when they
come to pAy.:their. taxes. Another
thing I think it is proper for me to
eav that when I was inaugurated
ihtre wa9 a $5U,000 school tund
unloaned. Now. there is about $60,-
000, making an increase in inter
est earning for the benefit 01 the
children of the state of about $40,
000 a year.
"I have kept a close watch on
appropriations and have made an
pft'.irt ti bean all lflul-ilftt.ion that
vitally interests the p ople of the
state in conditions so mat mey
could recall the referendum upon
it. if thev so desired. I have not
hesitated to veto bills when there
was a question as to the necessity
of the Appropriation.
Then the governor talked about
the legislature.
"Many of my recommendations
in m(s-aees to the legislature have
been adopted, with' the result , that
a good share of the burdens of taxa
tiooon . Teal estate and personal
property have been removed and
have constantly made the effort to
divorce: the methods of raising rev
enue for etate purposes from the
methods adopted for raising reven
nue for county purposes.
"It isn't beyond the range of
probability," continued the gover
nor, "that in the near future reven
ues for state purposes will be rais
ed by inheritance taxation, taxa
tion of franchisee, corporations and
other sources sufficient to adminis
ter the affairs of state independent
of taxes raised by direct taxation
for support of the several counties
Add the governor, talked about
land affairs, a subject that comes
close home here in Oregon. -
"I have endeavored to slraighten
out the tangle in which the public
lands of the state had become in
volved." he said, "and efforts along
this line have been measurably suc
cessful. Further than that, base
lands for indemnity selection, which
were Belling for $2.50: an acre, are
how' eelling for $6, and contrary to
the practice heretofore followed, no
certificates for indemnity selection
or deeds therefore are issued until
selections' have been finally approv
ed by the general land; department

because some of hi.v relatives had died of

two years-ago 1 contracted a severe cold,
which would not yield to such home-treat

Chicago, Feb. 14. A dispatch to
the Tribune from Washington eays:
Thirty-eight thousand men of the
regular army are to be mobilized at
Manila for service in China, in case
of an uprising against foreigners in
the ancient empire. The war de
partment has determined to send
four regiments of cavalry and sev
en battalions of artillery to the Far
Eastern islands to reinforce the
troops already there.
Tne navy is aleo active, and has
directed , Rear-Admiral Sigsbee's
squadron, consisting of one armored
and three protected cruisers, to hold
itself in readiness to proceed to the
Far East and report to Rear-Admiral
Traincomuiander-in-chief of
the Asiatic fleet. The navy depart
ment also has sent instructions to
Rear-Admiral Train . to take such
measures as may seem to him ad
visable for the adequate protection
of Americans and their interests.
Gunboats of the Helena class
which have undergoing repairs at
Manila will be commissioned with
out further delay andsent to China
for use on. the iYangste-Kiang.
Rear-Admiral Train has arrang

territory traversed by this stream

apprehension of trouble, and upon
arrival they will be picked up by

A special from London to the
World says: The story is told here
that Countess Castellane bad es
tablished in tbe Castellane mansion
an unobtrusive well-bred American
ostensibly as a tutor for her sons,
but really to closely watch the
count. This tutor brought on the
coud by gaining entrance to the
magnificent bachelor establishment
maintained by Count Boni and
some of his friends. Here he found
letters from several French women
of the highest position.
One of the most extraordinary
features of the cooperative bachelor
establishment was that some of the
women were particularly wealthy
and would defray the immense ex
penses. A letter from one such wo
man was found, it is eaid, covering
a check for $80,000.
