Lovers of minstrelsy will welcome the
return of Schilling's Minstrcle to the
Roseburg Theater, Thursday evening,
Jan. 9th. Mr. Schilling claims that his
company this season is the strongest ho
has ever carried and as lie has always
bad a good company, something cx
traordinory may be looked for. He
certainly has in Lew Spencer, Billy
Carroll, Frank Hammond and Eugene
Everett, a list of comedians hard to
equal, and in the olio of novelties, the
Brothers La Rose, the great English
acrobats, Kinzo, the Japanese juggle
and Uarroii ana JNeaiy, me inuia rub
ber twins, are a show in themselves.
The first part settings and draperies and
the costumes worn by the company in
this part of the entertainment are the
finest ever seen in this city with an or
ganization of this kind.

Some Possible and Probable Demo
Tho article in last week's Review, un
der tho caption, "Local Politics," while
attempting to portray tho stato of things
political, in fact presents no information
of tho least practical importance.
It is significant, however, in that the
writer of it is deep in tho conlidcnco of
tho republican party a repository of its
most important 6ecrots and a trusted
friend and advisor of tho A. P. A.
Wo have scanned tho article for somo
evidence of equal appreciation by tho
democrats, but, excepting the two lines
in conclusion of it, probably volunteered
in an unguarded moment by their al
leged candidate for sheriff, the search is
fruitless, Why the people of this
county should be slighted thus wo aro
unablo to conjecture. It cannot bo in
tentional? It cannot bo that the sta
bility of the writer is not sufficiently ap
preciated by his own party.
It Bhould be remembered that tho
voters are not altogether wrapped up in
the doings of the republicans, nor tho
A. P. A's; they would be gratified to
learn what tho "three great lights" of
democracy have brought forth for their
subservient followers to scramble over,
Any intelligent person might hazard a
guess, but owing to the vagaries of the
aforesaid (no it might be wide of 'the
The most conspicuous group are the
aspirants for the sheriffalty. Dillard,
Long, Quine, Houston, Cawlfteld, and
hold your breath Sam Miller, who
would carry the prestige of two success
ful campaigns with him into the battle.
The other five arc mentioned in the
order of their probability ol success,
Tho democratic party, as represented by
the leaders aforesaid, has no idea of
placing Mr. Quine in the lists, although
in qualifications for the office far ahead
of most of.tho others ; but a sop mnst be
thrown him to raise his expectations
and keep him in the line, and they al
ready f smile broadly in their lloon
sleeves at the supposed success of their
tino Italian work. Long will make a
pretty strong hgbt for the nomination
and if he withdraws from the A. V. A
and promises not to think for himself
any more, he may be granted forgive
ness by tbe boss, and have the trncheon
placed in his hands (?) Finis Dillard,
the only logical candidate in the party
for the office, and the only man stand
ing the ghost of a show of election is
handicappea by the animosity of the
eclf-constitutcd "boss." Atrucemav be
patched up, and the people may (if they
arc real humble and buliavc themselves)
have a chance to vote for their favorite
next June. R. B. Houston and J. B.
Cawlfield do not expect the nomination,
but their names may be put forward as
Quine's has been already; and the
promise of 1st deputy held out to each
of them, also with the prospect of nom
ination for ehernt four years hence may
hold them in line.
Halrn'riting ca the rcgahHrar.n electing
a sheriff every 3 yearj it will take from
24 to 40 years for George, Jim and Bird
to get there. Promises are easily made
and are very soothing just before the
shock of battle, but afterward how elo
quent the excuses for breaking them !
Yut this trio are just in the vigor and
strength of their young manhood and
have not yet learned that "Hope de
ferred maketh the heart sick" of poli
tics. To sum it all up (for geographical
reasons, politically speaking) rmis or
Sam will be sheriff .and Long deputy,
Hon. J. W. HamOton, by reason of
his reputed poverty (?j brought about in
assisting to "lead" tho democratic party,
coupled with bis rabid and profane, al
though ineffectual, onslaught against the
A. P. A., will bo pushed to the fore front
by the other members of the combine,
but the utter defeat of bis ticket at tho
recent city election will tell terribly
against him next Jnne.
When the proper time arrives the sat
urnine editor oi trie iieview will bob up
serenely and demand, in his modest
manner, to be sent to Salem to make
laws for the common folks. His emienet
serrices against the A. P. A. and the
hard fight he bad to bold the patronage
of the sheriffs office for his paper during
Sam Miller's incumbency, entitles bim
to a seat in the house next year, and his
bust a niche 'in the great university at
Washington hereafter. Still a great
many of the common people think that
bis partiality in publishing all news indi
cating the suspicion of a check to the A
P. A., and suppressing all matter tending
to show their many successes in purify
ing politics, may not result in ins recep
tion with that grateful entbusiaem his
' leaders" would havo him expect.
Volney C. London will probably not
bo run for representative by tho machine
this year and it is doubtful if Volney will
swallow hia medicine with the same
placid and unmoved countenance he ex
hlblted last year. He is popular with
the R. R. boys and controls a very large
voto there, regardless of party, which at
the last election, ho very generously
threw to his colleagues.
Since V. L. Arlington retired, timber
for treasurer is rather scarco inside tho

them to call in some good honest man
from Myrtle Creek or Looking Glass. I
will not be surprised however, to bco the
staunch and invincible democrat Stony
Fitzbugh brought out.
For Clerk ah! there's the rub.
Here also they will have to stop outside
to; get their material. Always saving

The Transvaal Raid.
Bekun, Jan, 4. Tho invasion of tho
Transvaal by Dr. Jamieson and tho
forces of tho British South Africa Com
pany has brought up all tho latent feel
ing of hostility to England, and has
evoked an outburst similar to that pro
duced by President Cleveland '8 message
in America. Tho general belief thattho
duplicity of tho British statesmen is de
liberate and iu pursuanco to their pol
icy of keoping Europe divided into two
camps, in order to lacilitato ,ngiisn
aggressions and encroachments in Af
rica and elsewhere, has received sup
posed confirmation in tho nows. of Dr.
Jamicson's venture. In spito of tho
diavowal of tho British secretary
of stato for tho colonies, Mr. Cham
berlain, of any knowledgo of responsi
bility for tho step taken by Dr. Jamie
son, little doubt is felt hero that it was
prompted in high quarters, and the free
terms of tho emperor's message are in
terpreted as indicating tho same mis
trust of the English protestations as
felt in government circles. Everybody
understands that the emperor's message
to President Kruger was not due to
mens impulse, but was decided upon
and drafted after a grave council of
ministers, and it must therefore be re
garded as an open pronouncement of a
change in German policy toward Great
London, Jan. 4 If any such proof
were necessary, the events of the past
week have once more tended to establish
beyond any doubt llio cold isolation of
Great Britain. But theanti-Brtlish com

Demands on Turkey.
Cliictuo, Jan. 4. A dispatch to the
Times-Herald from Washington says:
naranips Hying the stars and stripes,
and manned by American bluejackets,
may force the passage of the Dardanelles
and Bosphorus, anchor at Constantino
ple and show the sultan that Uncle Sam
is not to be trilled with. It transpires
today that the Bojphorus is likely to be
the. destination of the North Atlantic
squadron of American battle-ships,
stead of the Carhean sea-.
According to the plan arranged by
Secretary Herbert and Admiral Bunco,
the squadron should havo sailed from
Hampton Roads for St. Thomas Decern
bf r .'I. Though every ship was leady
for sea on that date, tho fleet of seven
i . i
vessels nas ueen nem lor some reason,
which the secretary of the navy declined
ft is now stated that Admiral Bunco,
when he vi6!led ashinglon December
10, was given scaled Instructions, which
postponed the Southern cruise, pending
developments in Turkey. Now tho
bouthern cruise may bo abandoned alto
getner, and the vessels may set Bail for
the Mediterranean at almost any hour,
Tho 'government proposes, unless
Turkey responds promptly to tho de
mai ds for $200,000 indemnity, made on
account of tho Kharpoot and Marosh out
rages, to mako a naval demonstration
that r " bring tho sultan to time. In
caee f previous experience with Tur
key u.o government has fouud that tho
sultan does not respond to such demands
easily. This is a caso whero tho dignity
nud p.-eeitige of tho United States is be
hoved to bo at stake, and tho sultan will
not bo permitted to practice his custom
evasion and deceit."
The Actual Crisis at Hand.
Ni:w YoitK, Jan. 4. A special to tho
Herald from Key West says:
Startling advices havo been received
from the city of Havana, that tho wholo
province of Havana is up in arms against
tho government. While no details aro
given of actual engagomcnts, the reports
say that the government troops aro fall
ing back everywhere iu the disaffected
western rogions, boforo the triumphant
rohol army. To allay us much as pobsi-
ble tho punlo excited by this stato of
affairs, the chief officials in the capital
aro sending ont in everv direction false
dispatchea about tho situation.
That theeo attempts at stifling facts are
far from successful is shown by tho wide
currency which has been given the
rumor that tho actual crisis in tho revo
lution has arrived, and that far from
holding tho insurgents in check, tho
Spanish military authorities havo been
outgeneialed, havo allowed their foes to
turn tho flank of their main army, land
havo thus found themselves in a military
dilemma of the most humiliating as well
as the most eerious character.
Not only aro highly imaginary reports
of Spanish victories disseminated, the
Havana advices stato, but tho vigilance
of the censor has been redoubled, and
letters, as well as telegrams and cable
messages, aro subjected to rigid Jexam
ination, that the news furnished by tho
anthorities at tho palace may not be
alarmingly contradicted by the relation
of actual facts.
