observer says that First Officer Thomas
E. Stanneid. of the lightship, came ashon.
and endeavored to communicate with tne
lighthouse Inspector in Portland, but the
"wires were all down and be was obliged
to send the news of mail.
Yesterday morning Captain Day pub
lished a warning to mariners that the
lightship was no longer at her moorings.
Mr. Stanfiold reported that a "'living gale
of from 10 to SO knots had been blowing
for 10 days, and that although the light
ship was equipped with the strongest
kind of ground tackle, her officers knew
that her cables could not resist the ter
rible pounding of the sea for long. Her
engines are not strong enough to hold her
against the gale, and her propeller only
served to keep steering way on her by

she finally made her way into Neah Bay. '

Zwlcker Iron "works, of Portland, three
years ago, and is one of the stanchest
vessels of her class afloat. She cost the
Government about $G5.O00.

ONE DESERTER TO BRYAN.
And He's Against McKinley Because
He Doesn't L-llce Roosevelt.
THE DALLES. Oct. 2C (To the Editor.")
I have been told several times that The
Oregonian would not publish correspon
dence not coinciding with its political
faith. However, I have read several
Democratic articles of late in your paper,
and I venture to offer a few remarks
In connection with Mr. O'Shea's article in
your issue of October 2L First, I have
been a Republican for a number of years,
voting for and folding steadfastly to poli
cies of that party. I supported McKinley
In 196 and intended doing so again, un
til, a few weeks ago. I was in Indiana on
business, and, being Jiot far from Fort
Wayne on the occasion of Mr. Roose
velt's speech at that place, I went to
The Indianapolis Journal's account of
the disturbance at that meeting was cor
rect. Mr. Roosevelt and his party were
wholly responsible for the disturbance.
His sarcastic bulldozing and bigoted
manner of Addressing the American voter
4s something new to them in a candidate
lor so high an office. While I do not
uphold a disturber of a public meeting, I
do -think that Mr. Roosevelt betrays a
shallowness ill-becoming a man In his
position, in dealing with such. Any pub
lic man should expect to corne in contact
with all claseos of people and aim to
deal with them in such a way as to conv
mand the reppect of all. Instead of low
ering himself to he level of him who
Joiows no better than to disturb a public
jneeting. After hearing "Mr. Roosevelt,
and noting his wt-akness for slangy
phrases, his ill-temper and arrogant man
ner, I am Convinced there is an Imperi
alistic tendency, and if there was not, I
20uld never support such a man as Roose
velt for an office which Involves so many
responsibilities; for he is not a statesman,
but simply a "gSittering generality."
I submit this" in all candor, for the
benefit of those who must rely upon
hearsay(and have not had an opportunity
to hear Mr. Roosevelt In person.
D. J. BRAINBRIDGE,.
The logic of this correspondent is that
HoosevelCs hearers didn't know any -better
than to disturb a public meeting;
therefore Roosevelt was to blame. Roose
velt is a shallow, ill-tempered man;
therefore Mr. Brainbridge is for free sil
ver, free riot, National contraction and
National! cowardice, and against the gold
standard, expansion,, and National duty.
If all persons who do not love McKinley
or Roosevelt refused to support them
when they are Republican candidates
standing for Republican policies, the
country would be in a sorry way.
OBJECT TO A LIMIT.
Uncle-Hunters Want to Shoot With
Yesterday was a favorable day for duck
hunting, and the hunters returning may
be expected to report good sport. Last
Sunday some of the onds were still too
jow to afford good shooting, but the

may shoot in a day comes, it is said.
from up tne aney, wnere tne ponus ana

All sportsmen here allege that placing
i .lmit on the number of ducks that may

put an end to duck-shooting in this re -

NO BRYAN .FOR HIM.
Four More Years of Prosperity
Wanted, So Supports McKinley.
XA GRANDE, Or., Oct. 26. (To the Edi
tor.) I have frequently been asked by
my former Democratic associates why,
having supported Mr. McKinley in
preference to Mr. Bryan in 1&96, I desire
so vera me in supporuns me pren
Administration, I may mention that, af
ter more mature consideration of ths
crime of "73" and the dire arid dismal
disasters tKat Bryan predicted would
paralyze the industries of this country,
and turn the laborers of the United
States into an army of tramps, I And
on the contrary, that every man who
wants to work has only to hold up his
hand and there Is work for him at good
wages, and there Is plenty of good money
in the country to pay him with.
Four years of experience with the gold
standard have dispelled all fears as to
our volume of money; and we now have
a larger per capita circulation than was
ever known in the history of our Gov
ernment. The banks are crowded with
deposits, only awaiting the result of
the election, and if the people decide on
November 6 to continue our present
financial policy I believe we will open
the dawning century with greater bus
iness activity than was ever known In
the Western Hemisphere since the Stars
and Stripes were adopted as our National
emblem. I was born in the South, and
voted for over 30 years with the old-line
Democracy. They always advocated
sound money and their leaders were al
ways in the van of expansionists, and al
ways regarded the decisions of tie
Supreme Court with the greatest respect.
And when a Bryanlzed Anarchist Gov
ernor of Illinois refused to call out the
state militia to assist the police force of
Chicago In maintaining order, and to
prevent a Bryanlzed Debs mob from
destroying Government and pr"v.ite proi
ty, I fully Indorsed the patriotic cour e
of Grover Cleveland in sending Unl'ed
States troops. Again, when an organized
band of Bryanlzed thugs forcibly took
charge of railroad trains and committed
murder and arson, and blew up the
Bunker Hill & Sullivan mills In the
Coeur d'Alenes to terrorize and rob m'ne
owners, and a patriotic although Demo
Popullstic Governor called for Unltrd
States troops to protect life and pro-jerry,
I, as an American citizen, was pro-Jd io
know that even he was inspired by true
American patriotism. When the very
men who elected this Demo-Populist
Governor on a Dolly Varden platform
threw him down and trampled him under

now, that I bad no desire to affiliate or
In any way take part with them.

States of the Philippine Inlands for a
consideration of 520.OCO.O00. In rrder to

were required, and Mr. Bryan, the spell

Chicago, and by the aid of his "crown of

term the paramount l-sue as slmp'y th"
paramount "blather" of a paramount
demagogue, and a very dangerous one
at that. This chronic habit in the Demo
cratic party of "viewing with alarm" and
filling the land with scarecrows every
four years, Is as old as our- form of
government ar.d dates back to the
Tories of the Revolution; but fortunately
nobody but those who themselves put up
these scarecrows ever "view them with
alarm." The land -was filled with th'm

ON "THE' YELUOW PERIL"
MISSIONARY SERMON BY REV. ED
GAR P. HILL. '
Ohararcs the Greed of Nations With
Responsibility for Chinese Out
rages Other Sermons.
The morning sermon at the First Pres
byterian Church yesterday was giv
en in response to the "appeal,
sent out by the United Boards
of Foreign Missions, requesting tho
churches to make the week beginning
October 2S a time for' special prayer for
missions In China. Previous to the ser
mon, Dr. Hill announced that the offer
ing taken the previous Sunday for, homo
missions amounted $1250.
The text of the sernion was Isaiah xlix:
6: "I will also give thee for a light
to the Gentiles that thou mayest be my
salvation unto the end of the earth." Tho
speaker said in part:
"The text Is in harmony with the genlua
of tho gospel message. The outlook of
CRUELTY TO A FAITHFUL AND LON G-SUFFERING HORSE.
Tho horse shown in the accompanying picture was discovered by "W. T. Shanahan,
abandoned and 'suffering with a swollen leg, which made Its every step exceedingly painful.
The animal was taken In charge by the Humane Society's officer, and was mercifully put to
death. It was learned that he had lone served faithfully an unworthy mas'ter, who, when
the animal became useless, from Its affliction, turned It out to die.
Christ's kingdom is never local, never
national, but always world-wide. The
model prayer encircled the earth In the
arms of Its sympathy. 'Thy kingdom
come, they will be done, in earth as it is
In heaven.' The apostle to the Gentiles
l'ecognlzcd no boundary lines. His mes
sage was forf man wherever found. Our
planet has one sun. . It would be
as silly as it would be futile
to attempt to set apart certain districts
of the earth's surface as unwilling to
acknowledge its supremacy. If the people
of Africa, unable to appreciate the min
istry of the king of day, were to meet In
deliberative assembly and vote that the
sun should not be allowed In their sky, t
they would only make the more evident !
rheir dense stupidity; and the Sun of j
Righteousness is for the world. God Is. tho
God of China as of America; Christ is not
America's Saviour only, but India's. To
acknowledge that the gospel doos not be
long by right in the Orient is to confess
that it is false. Christianity Is the world's
religion or It is no religion. (
"We are sometimes confronted in these
anxious days with the question, 'What '
right, has Christianity to thrust itself on i
unwilling people like the Chinese? If ',
they do not want Christianity they have '
as much right to drive It from their
threshold as a citizen has to close his
door In the face of a too importunate so- I
llcitor.' We might answer the question I
by another, 'Why do the governments
of the world thrust their goods on un
willing nations? -Why do merchants In
sist on sending their wares to these In
hospitable shores? Why Is It that the j
powers would regard it a declaration of '
war If a country were to close its ports
against their merchants?' Commercialism
sends its goods at the mouth of a can- j
non into the cities of the Orient and says: j
'You must have my wares whether' you
will or no; and then it turns upon the I
missionary in well-feigned Indignation as
he goes with words of love and ministry
of mercy, and angrily says, 'Why can't
you leave those people alone to me?'
But we have a better answer than this;
Christianity insists upon bringing the peo
ple of the East under its sway for the
same reason that the law of gravitation '
Insists that the Chinaman as well as the
Englishman shall 'lay the foundation of
his home before he builds the roof. God's
laws are universal. All have sinned; ,
Christ- Is the one Saviour. In connection
with the story of the war In China four
chapters should be burned Into our minds
that we may be able to answer the man i
who says that the untactful. Ignorant, .
lazy missionary nus oeen iu umiiic.
"Chapter I. There was a time when
opium was a contraband article In China.
Two hundred chests were allowed to be
shipped into the country annually for i
medicinal purposes. It was forbidden as
an article of trade. But the Portuguese
carried on a profitable smuggling busi
ness, and the East India Company con
ceived the Idea of using the plains of
India for growing the poppy and smug
gling the drug Into China. After a time
the English Government superseded the
East India Company, and for a time the
world witnessed the spectacle of Chris
tian England engaged In smuggling opium
Into China. Then the Emperor of China
became enraged. He ordered his Com
missioner to seize the offenders, whoever
they were, execute the Chinese engaged 'n
the traffic and put trie foreigners In
prison. This was done, and the opium
was emptied into the sea in some such
spirit as our forefathers tossed chests of
tea in Boston harbor.
"Did enlightened England send a note
of apology to China and punish her sub
jects who had sought to fasten an awful
curse on the people of the East? Well,
( hardly. England sent a fleet of warships
to unma, seizea tne mugiuiiceiii port ut
Hong Kong, which she holds to this day,
compelled China to pay $21,000,000 for the
opium seized and for the expense pf send
ing the warships, and forced her at the
mouth of cannon to allow the shackles
of the opium curse to be fastened on her
people. And -when tne Chinese muttered
savagely, 'Let us drive the foreigner Into
the sea,' an opium merchant wrote back
to a London newspaper that the mission
aries should not be allowed there, as they
! were causing no end of trouble.
"Chapter II. Then the enlightened
French Nation thought It was in, order
, to extend its commerce: It was discov
ered, however, that there was a duty on
goods sent Into China. But this difficulty
! was speedily overcome. A fleet was sent
1 to Tonquln.and the city was taken just
I as a highwayman might spring from a
' dark alley and take a pedestrian's watch-
at the point of a revolver. Then, when
I the- Chinese clenched their fists and de
clared they would be avenged for the
outrage, a French Consul announced to
some) travelers that the missionaries were
a mena'ce to the peace of China and
should be recalled.
"Chapter III. Russia Jhought it was
time to be'doing something ln,xthe -f arEast.
There was a line., aeep-water naroor up m i
Manchuria and Russia's port at Vladivo
stock was icebound a large portion of the
year. Therefore, with -about as irinph
Dolitenessi and for the obvious reason,,a
1 Rocky Mountain grizzly seizes Its victim,
the Russian bear laiq its great paw on
Port Arthur, the Chinese became dis
tressed that Iks -four deep-water "ports
seemed to be -passing into the hands of
foreigners. Angry, protestations were
heard and threats. Were made. Then a
Russian Army officer told a newspaper
correspondent that, the missionaries were
making no end of trouble that they ought
to know better than 'insult the people of
China by building hospitals to care for
their sick, and establishing schools to
educate their younsr
"Chapter TV? At this point enlight
ened Germany began to feel that it was
not doing its duty -in the'far East. Two
of its citizens, who happened to be mis
sionaries, had been murdered Just as some
Italians were murdered in Now- Orleans
a -few years ago. The matter could have
been settled in some such" way as it was
here. But no. Germany was .not going
to be behind in trade expansion in the
Orient. So she sent -her fleet to China's
fine' port of Wei-Hai-Wel, and annexed
it to tho Kaiser's realm, and miles and
miles of territory. But that was not all.
A fow -years ago a private party of Ger
mans sailed up one of the rivers in search
of treasures. They landed at a royal cem
etery, 'and began digging Into the tombs
of Chinese Kings. The exasperated Chi
nese of the neighborhood gathered to
gether, attacked the desecraters of their
dead, and the robbers were killed. Did
the German Government send a letter of
approval to .the villagers who thus de
fended tho bones of their dead Kings?
Not exactly. It sent a warship up the
river to wipe the villagers from the face
of the earth. And when there filtered
through the empire the liews of these re
peated wrongs, and the members of a
secret society grasped their guns and de
clared they would driye every foreigner
awny, the German attache wrote back to
his government that the. missionaries
ehould be left to their fate if they per-'
sisted in arousing the anger of tho people.
We know a ureat deal more now about
the cause of discontent in China than we
did three months ago.
"We who are Christians have our rea
son for sending the gospel to China, and
no argument of the faint-hearted nor
threat of brazen commercialism can dis
suade us. We' have our orders from the
lips of Christ himself. The past urges us
to the task and the future beckons us
to the work. But Is there a reason for
the evangelization of China which we can
place before men who can be moved onlv
by the motive of self-interest? China Is
sometimes called the Yellow Peril. All
who have investigated the question roprrt
that a sullen cloud hangs low on the,
Oriental horizon which threatens world
wide destruction. More than one thought
ful student has prophesied that a day
will come and it Is not far ahead when
there will be a fearful contest with the
Christian nations on the one side and the
Chinese on the other. Our ablest mission
aries have been impressed with the fact
that China contains millions of men who,
with modern enginery of warfare in their
hands, might sweep over the earth, aa
Genghis Kahn In the thirteenth century,
and Tamalane in the fourteenth century,
swept from the east with their hordes
Into Asia Minor, destroying millions of
lives. I open a lat'o magazine and read
an article which is spoken of as a re
markable one, and read: 'China as an
anvil has chipped many a hammer al
ready. China as a hammer will yet pound
tlie Cossack anvil as no European ham
mer ever -yet pounded it. The land that
produces a mendicant Genghis Kahn may
yet produce a twentieth-century Genghis
Kahn up In .the mastery of modern war
fare.' I open another magazine and read:
'If the sleeping giant shall once awaken
and becomo conscious of his strength, let
the world beware.' I open another late
magazine and find that a" writer has
amassed cold figures lnto'an Impressive
and chilling array;' 'I am firmly con
vinced,' says . the . writer, 'that unless
something revolutionary Is done beforo
another generation shall have passed
away, the world will b"e split asunder :u
a gigantic struggle between the white
and yellow races.'
"What Is the combined population of 'the
civilized nations of the . earth? Russia
has 120,000,000, the United States has CO.00O,
000, Germany has 48,000,000, Franco 3S.000,
0C0, the British Empire 40,000,000, Janan
40,000,000, and Italy 28,000,000; total, 3S&.
000,000. But China clone has a population
of 400,000,000. Since 1891 China has im
ported from England alone 7L guns or
position and 11,000 rounds of ammunition,
123 field guns, with 40,000 rounds, and 207
machine guns, with 4,000,000 rounds. From
Germany she has Imported 500,000 Mauser
' rifles and 3,000,000 rounds of ammunition.
Place every available soldier of China be
hind a Mauser and fit an army with such
death-dealing machinery as Is now made
and what an appalling menace this yellow
race, becomes to the nations of the earth.
Such a nation well equipped and organ
ized could overwhelm the world.
"Well, what Is to be done to forestall
, such a catastrophe? This writer whose
figures I have quoted says there Is only
one way to forestall such a calamity,, arid
that Is to" sllbe up the empire and give
each power a -piece. But the Unlteif
States says that that shall never happen
with Its consent. It Is Improbable that
such a thing can be done", and lfir lt could,
more strife would probably be stirred up
than would be allayed. What can bo
done? There" can be done for. China what
, has-been done for, Japan. When the.,..a"
lled" armies marched to Pekln to the re
lief of the Ambassadors, one of the most
efficient, most trusted, most' aggressive
sections of that army was that of Japan.
Fifty years ago It was a heathen nation.
Fifty years ago it would "have taken its
'place by the side- of China. Fifty years
jiago jt was as blindly prejudiced against
tne roreigner as unina' is toaay., out
Christianity has revolutionized Japan,. It
has-lidhey-combed it with its thought. It
has .held before It high Ideals. It has
put new motives in the hearts of the
people. Today. that England of the Orient
Is one1 of the world's great powers, and
it Is arrayed on tne side" if civilization
against heathenism. And this is exactly
what is needed in China. Who cares how
strong, ithe glantis if hls.hsartils right?
Who cares haw many millions there are
in China if they are good' people? Who
cares how many rifles' andamach1he guna
are shipped there if they are to be turned
only against that which is evil?
"Let the Gospel work its beneficent min
istry among those millions of the Orient
and the yellow peril will become a golden
"THE MASTER'S CALL."
Stirring Sernion and Fine Music at
Centenary M. E. Cnurch.
Yesterday morning's services at Cen
tenary Church were especially attractive.
Aside from the beautiful song service
rendered by the choir, Mrs. Miller sang,
by request, "In the Secret ofHls Pres

G. W. Gue, the pastor, then delivered a
sermon on "The Master's Call," from the
text Matthew xl:2S-29, "Come unto me, all

"We ought to give thanks that Christ
spoke those words. There are numbers
of sublime passages In the Bible, but none

no human being can understand Infinity.

meek and gentle as a little child, and
the world has suffered much because It

Thriving: Without a. Pastor.
The Fourth Presbyterian Church, In
thict ritv seems to be cetting on very
well without any regularly stated pastor,
although six Sundays have passed since
Rev. Thomas Boyd vacated the pulpit.
Members of the congregation volunteer
to read from the scriptures, lead In
prayer and singing and occasionally are
helped out by a visiting minister. In this
way large congregations still attend both
morning, and evening services, and the
Sunday school Is fully as largely patron
ized as ever, while sociability among the
members seems to' have increased as a
result of so much volunteering. The con
gregation has Its eye on a certain pastor,
however, and If he accepts and the pres
bytery authorizes his engagement, the
Fourth Church, will have a shepherd at
tho head of Its flock within a few weeks.

WAS BALD SIX YEARS.
Three Months of the New Scientific
Treatment Restored His Hair.
Baldness Is caused by dandruff, which
Is caused by a germ. Kill the germ and
1 there Is almost certainty that hair -will
grow again. If the follicle has not been
I totally destroyed. Nels Peterson, of Lime
' Spur. Mont., says: "I had been bald six
years, and had tried all Kinds or. -cures,
but -without any benefit whatever, until
I tried Herpicide. November 16, 1S39, I
began using Herpicide. and in three
months a fine growth, ot hair covered my
head completely." Ask .your druggist
for Herpicide. Everybody can havo lux
uriant, glossy hair. If Herpicide Is used
thoroughly. Take no substitute.
