"Il Is proposed to teud regular regi

be returned to the Tnitod States iu
which they left."
This would bring the troops back in

Second Oregon, First Colorado, Tenth
Pennsylvania and the I'tah battery.

A few weeks ago, as publiebeJ"1u tho
Telegram al that lime, the gJvcruoi ol
Colorado, who bad been usiug bis lotlu-
ence to have a prominent youug Colora
do volunteer discharged from the service
In Manila, received a letter from Adju-tant-Oenciat
Coibiu stating that it was
the purpose ol the president lo hae tho
volunteers sent home as soou as regu
lars could be sent to tske their places
Beyond question this letter was not iu
tended for publication, as the peace ie
Collations were at a critical point at that
time, but tho letter fell into the hands of
the newspapers, and was widely priuted
.Secretary Alger wired a contradiction of
the statement, and it was thought at tho
time that the war department considered
it bad policy to give out any such iuform
lion until peace negotiations were con
a l . .
a uay cr two alter the .annouuceiuent
that Spain would accept the terms of the
I oited States, and that peace was as
sured a number of regiments of regulars
stationed in Wisconsin were ordered to
proceed to San Francisoo, preparatory to
tailing for Manila early in January, aud
now somes the information from fe ro
tary Alger that regulars will take the
placs of the voluuteers as eoou us the
hangs can be made.
In the meantime the New York vol
unteeis, who were at Houolulu have
been brought back. This woe con I J in

and no doubt treuieuduiis pressure was
being brought to bear upon the depart

The cry is guiug into Washington from
every state to let the voluuteers cum
home, aud the boys, tired, eick aud
woru out, are begging to Le allowed to
return. The president baa said it mm
purose to replace the volunteers
with regulars, and has asked congress to
increase the army sufficiently to allow
him to do so. Taking all of these things
into consideration, there can be no
doubt that the information coutaiued iu
the telegram from Denver is entirely
Local military men do not care lo be
(looted, and, while free to state they
have no knowledge of the intentions of
the war department, aside from such
news as sppears iu the papers, there
seems to be an uuanimous opinion
among them that the volunteers will
soon come borne.
It Is the opinion of those who have
given the matter thought that tho ex
change could not possibly be completed
iu lees than three months from the time
it begins, and as the regulars are oiJer
ed to be ready to sail f.-om San Francis
co between January 5 and II!, it may be
April or May before the Oregon boys get
borne. The thought that they are soon
to come, however, will make the time go
by rapidly, and within lees than a year
from the time of their departure it in
very probable that the brave boys of
Oregon will again be settled down in
their native land.

know we bave a good thing which do
mauds pushing. The entire- state is
watching Union county's experiment,
because there are iiunv other counties
that can grow sugar )ceta, and several
have already decided to try It.

bad a good campaign, under all the con
i!t!n wlili'h pi'Mvailml, hut because
some of the growers lost a little money
ami mo crop ol beets was short on ac
count of their lack of experience In cul
tivation does not uiaik the season as an
entire failure. No section of any conn
try has ever learned to grow sugar beets
profitably iu one or even two or three
years. It takes tiuie to properly reduce
the soil ami to learn how to raise aud
haudlo the beets. It is a crop peculiar
aud different from any other, but one
whose returns to a couutry are exceed
iugly rich aud profitable to all its people
alike. It is for this reason that other
states and couutrios havo found it ad
visable aud profitable to pay a bouuiy
ou sugar-beet raising. The net profits
to Ihe community iu keeping at borne
and disbursing for labor the large sums
anuually expended for imported sugar
havo far exceeded the temporary tax ou
the people for tho liounty. Already a
large number of well to-do farmers iu
Nebraska have headed for Oregon, and,
with a wise policy in handling this sugar
beet question, doubtless export growers
would bo iuduced to come to this stale.
The bouuty question is oue for the
whole state, aud not a sectional move
ment in any sense. In less than live
years lienco, under the bounty eysUin,
it is safe to piedict that not ouly cau
enough sugar lx produced in Oregon for
our home consumption, but ipjauliiiee
can bo exported lo our lees fortunate sin

Legislation Wanted By Blcyllsts.
13. S. l'aguo, president of the United
Wheeliug Association, is hard at work hi
connection with other members of the as
sociation, draftiug a bill which the uext
legislature will be asked to pass.
It Is the purpose of the association to
have the laws define the iights and priv- j
lieges of wheelmen ou the highway, and
give tho wheel a legal staudiug in the
state. As it now is a wheel iu Oregon is
neither man, beast nor thing, so far as
the law accordiog it or its rider aoy
rights is concerned.
One of tho iniporlaul features of this
bill will be provisions for raising a fund
for building bicycle paths in the various
counties of the state where such paths
are practical and desirable. The weth-
ou oi raising mis iuou win ue to levy a I
tax of $1.25 on each wheel iu tho coun
ties coming under the provisions of the
act. Tho amount so raised is to be ex
pended under tho supervision of the
county authorities for the construction
of bicyclo highways and nothing else.
troui the levying aud collecting of the
.Mr, rague expiobses uo doubt that
this measure will be passed by the legis
lature without opposition, as no one cau
be interested but the wheelmen, and
they aro almost a uult for sucb a law.
