Baron Sone Arasuke, Minister of Fi
nance,, answering the criticism of the
terms of the recent foreign loan, said
that the "'loan was unsatisfactory to tho
government, - DUt the delay in capturing
Port Arthur and the departure jof the
Russian "Baltic fleet had created a hitch
in the negotiations,- anil had compelled
the acceptance of terms less advantage
ous than those of the first foreign loan.

March 21, and the fiscal year commencing
in April, the war expenses wer esti

balance, $35,006,000, by duties.

donation claim near "Wheatland, in Polk
County. He resided there until 1S59, when
he removed to Salem, where he resided
most of the time until his death.
It was in Masonic circles that Mr.
Miller was best known. Throughout tho
half century of his membership in that
fraternity he was deeply devoted io Its
interests, and was a regular attendant
and active participant in all lodge work.
Though he took 32 degrees, the "blue
lodce" always held tho warmest place in
his heart, and it was there that he enjoyed
most to tell his Humorous stones ana sing
his always welcome Scotch songs. He
never oecupled an. office higher than that

OF PUBLIG INTEREST
RICHARpS DENIES CHARGES
Land Office Records at Washington
Do Not Bear Out the Statements
Made, by Governor Chamber-yr-
lain n the Matter.
OREGONION NEWS BUREAU, "Wash
ington, Nov. J3. Governor Chamberlain
accuses Commissioner Richards of break
ing a promise to himj of- misrepresenting
his (Chamberlain's) attitude on the state
land question; or showing discourtesy to
Oregon's chief executive, and of making
public correspondence of a xonfldential
nature. While Commissioner Richards
says he has no quarrel with Governor
Chamberlain, and will make no reply to
these accusations, ho explains the situation-
and shows records which do not in
any -particular bear out the Governor.
Governor. Chamberlain charges in his
letter of October 25 that Commissioner
Richards- has not kept his promise to the
Statetof Oregon in regard to state lieu
selections. Commissioner Richards says"
he' made no such promise, and search of
the .files falls to. show that such aJ.prom-
lso. was ever given. " Formal reply will bo
made to -this Jetter.
Governor - Chamberlain's subsequent
charge that Commissioner Richards, In
giving out for publication his letter of
October 26 in. regard to the Warner Valley
settlers made public correspondence
marked "personal and confidential" Is not
borne out by records. This letter bears
no mark whatever Indicating it is personal
or confidential., nor do its contents indicate-
that, such 'Is its character. It Is a
purely business "letter.
The letter may have been in an en
velope marked "personal and confiden
tial." But dozens of such letters are re
ceived by Commissioner Richards every
day, and no attention Is paid to marks
on the envelope unless the face or the let
ter and the nature of the contents testify
to Its. confidential nature. Nearly all such
letters pertain to business and it Is Com
missioner Richards' practice to treat them
as official communications; and they be
come part of the public flies. Moreover,
Commissioner Richards does not believe
much .in confidential correspondence on
The fact that the Governor's letter of
October 25 was .given out for publication
at Salem .the day It was written led Com
missloner Richards to conclude that the
uovernor was more anxious that Its con
tents should become known to'the'tJebble'
of Oregon than he was that it should be
first read in- Washington. Commissioner
Richard read a copy of that letter In tlje
uregonian a day , before tho letter. Itself
reached him. If It was proper for 'Gov
ernor Chamberlain to make public -his let
ter to Commissioner -Richards five days
oerore its receipt in Washington. 'Commls"-
sloner Richards was unable to see that
he was guilty of Impropriety in making
public another letter received from the
Governor, as well as his reply, especially
wnen doui relate to a matter of consid
erable public Interest and importance.
JAPAN AS A WAR POWER.
Wonderful Courage of Soldiers Revel
ation to "World.
London Spectator. ' ''
Out of an Island which, measured by
.Asiatic scales of measurement. Is but
litue one, a monarch whose very title a
generation ago suggested nothing but
comedy, has poured an army oreanlred
within his own restricted dominion, com
manded by Generals who never saw an
.European foe, and by officers, most of
wnom nave had only reasonable-training.
ana in a campaign or seven months
against soldiers like ' Kuronatkin'a that
army nas never known defeat. Its Gener-
als, not men of genius, have fought at
least as well as Napoleon's marshals; Its
officers have died as readily as their op
ponents, whose superiors they are in
training and method of military life; its
men have they any equals as units on
the field? That Is the question all Euro-
peon experts are asking tnemseives as
they read of charges ordered after three
terrible repulses; of assaults at night.
wnen tne soldiers felt in the dark for the
barbed-wire defences, and calmly bor
"slaughter In swaths" till they could
pull them down; of divisions which, like
General xamada's, when fairly surround
ed and with half theii number dead, still
"cut their way out" of the multitude
which "enveloped" them.
The Novoe vremya surely a fair wit
nesstells lookers-on in Europe that no
European army -has ever had such sol-
aiers to contend with; and if there seems
to those who remember Splcheren some
exaggeration In. the statement. Is it not.
nevertheless, substantially true? Some
philosophers at a distance from the scene
say that the Japanese, for this mental
reason or that, do not dread death: but
what more could Alexander or Napoleon
or "Wellington have asked of his men?
Nor does the mere absence of the dread of
death account for that cheerfulness in
night attacks which all who were on the
spot record of the Japanese, or for that
strenuousnesB in bayonet charges which
so terribly raises the percentage of killed

'courage of callousness.
Others say that these soldiers, whose
virtue la its old sense they fully admit.
have never yet been tried by failure; but
has Port Arthur fallen? Through elgnt
slow months the little men have been
there steadily foiled of their aim; for
eight months they have repeated attacks
which by the latest reports have in all
cost them 50.000 lives, and still they are
swarming on as if they were like Kip
ling's "Red Dogs of the Deccan." which,
driven by some inexplicable instinct, can
not swerve or stop, but must go on when
once their rush has begun, if it is to
certainty of death. The eyes ot Europe
have been turned of late from the great
fortress -and its heroic assailants and de
fenders. But we believe that when It falls.
and tho true history of the siege slowly
penetrates the west. It will be acknowl
edged that hardly in the history of tho
world has such energy In attack, such he
role endurance in defense been manifest
ed in so confined a space. The attack and
defense of Paris in 1871 is the onr-ucene
with which It can be compared In modern
times; and while the assailants did not
perish wholesale in that sfege, the de
fenders had not to endure that rain of
shells, and could at least occasionally
sleep In peace. The-.Japanese army is
terrible one, and Its struggle with the
Russian army a veritable war of giants.

The 'questions of- wage disputes and
trade jurisdictions, Mr. Mahon' said, were
things that would eventually decide them
selves, and that all that was needed was
sensible consideration of the facts.
Mr. Mahon spoke In very decided terms
against the introduction of politics Into
tho Federation. He said' that the So

tried at nearly every yeartytnftetlng to
have the Federation committed' to Social

Socialistic Tenets Not Approved.
SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 13. President
Gompers, of the American Federation of
Labor, speaking of the work of the com
ing session, said:
"I cannot give expression to my official
views but . personally I do not believe
that this Federation will be committed
to any political party, whatever its name,
whatever its claim, or whatever Its pre
tense, Tbe only safe -course for. organ
ized Jabor to adopt Is one of absolute non
committal to any political party. There
may bo -fiv& or six delegates with Social
lstlc leanings, but any resolution- looking
toward the adoption of Socialistic tenets
will, I am sure, meet with the dlsappro
val of an overwhelming majority."
The main questions that will come up,
according to the president, are the oft
repeated discussions of trade jurisdiction
and affiliation of labor bodies. In the
opinion of President Gompers the time is
not yet-ripe for tne garnering ot toreign
labor-bodies into an International federa
tldn. with the possible exception of the
Longshoremen of the World.

THE DAINTY LADY CAPTAIN.
Miss Morgan Authorized to Show
How She Can Command a Yacht.
New Tork Times.
Such astonishment as may be caused
by the announcement that the daughter
of a Philadelphia financier has secured
official authorization to command her
father's xacht, and "on all oceans," at
that, will be kept within very moderate
bounds if those who feel It carefully
bear in mind Just what a "master's cer
tificate" proves In regard to. Its possessor.
As a matter of fact, to a vessel owner
In need of a captain, an applicant's cer
tificate tells practically nothing about
what the owner wants to know. It shows
that the man has the sort of information
that Is needed, the foundation of a mas
ter's competency, but information of that
sort can easily be obtained by anybody
with some slight knowledge of elemen
tary mathematics and intelligence
enough to commit to memory the essen
tial contents of any one of several "epit
omes" which are neither hard to under
stand nor hard to get. Such a person.
whether man or woman, might, with
just a little luck in the allotment of ex
aminers, pass a brilliant examination
and secure a certificate as good as that
carried by any captain that sails the
seas. But that person wouldn't be at
all likely to "get a ship" except in the
somewhat rare instance that the ship
was a yacht owned by tho candidate's
father, and .even then the chances are
that tho real master of the vessel would
be a first officer, who besides a certifi
cate quite as good as that of the nominal
superior, would have the priceless, ;un
purchasable, and unexaminaole wisdom-
that comes, and only comes from years'
of actual experience at sea.
Provided with her "papers," Miss Jane
Morgan, of Philadelphia, would be able
to do a few things that would be illegal
if she did -not have them, but they will
not help a bit In meeting any one of the
thousand emergencies which diversify a
captain's life, and in almost every one
of those emergencies her sex will count
against her competency vastly more than
her. certificate counts for It. There have
been women masters before this, and a
few of them according to history its
rather legendary history have really
performed enough of the duties of the
position to serve practical ends Xpry.a;
voyage or two. but It will be manynnd
many a day before the much-discussed
sphere of woman widens enough to bring
her nearer In sight of actual command
on vessels that work for a living.
The Real Kuropatkln.

BACHELOR MAID PREFERRED.
Her Neatness Makes Her Favorite
With Landladies Who Know.
The bachelor girl has galneM Tor Her
self a new distinction, commonly ' sup
posed to belong exclusively to her bach
elor brother. She Is in demand as a
roomer. She not only equals the man
roomer in her reputation for being de
sirable among landladies, but she goes
him one better. If she is "a true bachelor
maid in the sense that she leads a
business life, she ha3 all his advan
tages as to absence during the day, and
if she cherishes In her secret heart a
desire to wash out handkerchiefs or
borrow a flatiron she has the reputa
tion of either not having time for It or
carefully suppressing it.
Neither the doors nor the hearts of
landladies have opened readily to her
call, however. Owing to the Increas
ing demand of this class of women for
a place to lodge an agency In Chicago
applies itself to' Its needs exclusively. .
'Tt is difficult at first, said the wo
man in charge, "to get some people to
even consider taking a woman. But
the market Is not overfull of men room
ers, and the woman who is anxious to
add a little to her Kous'e money decides
after some hesitation to try it,
"Pretty soon she is back. 'Give me

laundry and hangs up her own clothes,

"The bachelor maid also has the habit
of casually mentioning to her landlady
the hour at which she expects to be lit
at night, which many times is much
appreciated. She is almost sure, too, to
be good pay. In fact, what are called so
cial references rather than . business ref
erences are what we are asked to fur
nish with woman renters. Tho average,
woman who takes a girl Into her house
wants to know that her acquaintance
is such as to give her some idea of the
conventionalities, which is fair, as a
large part of her social life in the
evening is carried on in the house. As
class, however, the business woman
is observant of these things, and the
one thing which some times deters a
woman from renting her rooms to a
bachelor maid is the fact that she is
apt to ask the privilege of receiving
her callers in the parlor. Many women
renting to business women arrange
their rooms with couches and screens
and furniture which is generally sug
gestive of a sitting-room on this ac
count. Little evening gatherings and at
homes are one of the things which
the working woman usually will have
as soon as she has any quarters at all.
be they large or small. But they are
not apt to be noisy ones or objection
able in any way, and the fact that sho
is fond cf them makes a girl put more
money Into her room than a man will,
and the girl who gets a fair salary is
generally ready and willing to pay a
good price for a sufte where a man
with tho same Income would be satis
fied with a hall bedroom."
New Bedford Standard.
The season of freak bets on the Presi
dential election has begun. A Parker man
in Brooklyn, in case of Parker's defeat,
will roll a peanut across the Brooklyn
bridge. But that will be nothing com
pared with the amusement which his op
ponent will offer should Boosevelt be
beaten. He has agreed to shave only
one side of his face for one month. An
other equally absurd bet Is that of a Dem
ocrat of Harlem who agrees In case of
Parker's defeat to walk bear fashion on
his hands and knees from Forty-second
to Thirty-fourth street on Broadway with
his opponent seated on his back. The
