"Tbe North Yamhill Record in

refers to him aa little more than a

male be to be beyond the boy stage,
anyway? Bryan has passed the
age when life's sun is supposed (o

has been a man and a voter for
about 20 years. He is a man of

"It is not right to say that there
was not adequate military prepara
tion. The evil dates farther back,
.'t dates to unfortunate arrange
ments in 1881 and 1884,by which we
permitted a community, obviously
hostile, to enpy the unbounded,
unlimited right of accumulating
munitions ot war against ub, Y ar
after year there was an accumulation
of munitions which could only le
directed against ns. Hampered by
these arrtngeinenta, it was impo
sible for us to ayoid the interval of
trial and danger necessary to inter

war was declared and the moment

"That interval has nearly pass!.
Our troops are beginning to arrive.
Foreign nations have complimentcl
us upon the calmness with which
we have received the intelligence t f
occasional checks. Whatever
strategy might be, we are well awaia
thai the beginning of our conflii t
with the Boers must be marked h
a retirement of our troops from
positions they are not stron r
enough to occupy.
"It is necessary that we should
wait for sufficient reinforcement.
I do not attempt to forecast the
future. I only say that my faith
in the British soldier is unbound.-!,
and I am deeply gratified to feel
that he is in the vigorous, sagacious
hands of General Buller.
"What we desire is equal righH
before all men of all races, and
security for our fellow-subjects and
our empire. The hour of asking
hv what means these results
can be obtained iB not yet come,
but these are the objects and tbe
only object we seek. We do not
allow any other consideration to
cross our path."

Withers of Lane county, whofo

taxpayers of that county, imme
