Congressman Towney, tot Minnesota,
liat fr. nut sled a pln to Increaso tlie
efficiency ol the public ecrvie. ami for
that pnrpoo has introduced a lull in
concrete. Il la proviled In his hill for
Hit tetiremr-nt of superannuated nl
disabled government officials ami the
ereatluttot a fund for the retirement of
tucb employees. That the governnunt
withhold thre per cent ot their salaries
t- lie deposited as a "civil service re
tirement fund," nnd to be expended for
the benefit of (he employes who shall he
retired under the art, the government to
pay four percent interest semi-annn illy
on all moneys thus withheld. I'pnn re
tirement from serviie or hy death the
money is to bo restored to the emplojee
or his legal representatives with aocra-
nir interest.
This a paternalism that tu many eases
would bt for the benefit of the employee,
na it In a well known fact that many em
ployes can not, or rather will not, cave a
dollar of their earnings while in neaiiii
and vigor of life. Too many employes
art deficient in a knowledge ot economy
or knowing will not practice economy
and save his earnings by foregoing pres
ent luxuries that he may enjoy bis earn
ings in old age when unable to labor.
. If tht act be properly guided by cau
tious nroviaiona it will doubtless be a
good thing.
A friend on the U. S. s. retrel has
ten' us a copy of "Ihe Bounding Billow"
a paper "published at intervals" on
board the C. S Flagship Oljmpia. Tht
number before us was published just af
ter ths great naval battle of Manila, and
gives the best description of that battle
we hare yet teen. Toe first page is dec
orated with a beautiful colored engrav
ing, with the inscription: "We Came!
Wt Saw ! Wo Conquered '."
"Twas for Cuba and her honor,
To avenge our heroes elaio,
That victory wreathed our banner,

It gives a history of the fleet front the
time it left Mirs Bay, China, until after
the battle, which is described from the
Bailors' point of view, by one who took
part in that greatest of modern naval
battles. Some pointed translations are
made from the Diari ode Manila, a Span
iah paper published at that time iu Ma
nila. Here is a earn pie :
"A soldier of the first U it'll ion
Caradorea gazed at the American equad
ron sweeping over the waters out of reach
of the fire of our batteries, looked out at
the ships and then toward heaven, say
ing, 'If Holy Mary would turn that wa
ter to land, the Yankees wouid find out
how wo can charge in double time
And a 'crouching native staring out at
the ships, said, 'Just let them come
ashore and give us a whack at them."
Again, 'In majestic crder, why
should we deny this? the nice Yankee
sliiis advanced in battle array. The
Olympia, bearing the .Admiral's flag,
led the column, followed by the other
ships, steering at full speed toward Ca
vite." "The Bounding Billow is edited by L
S. Young and is quoted at "50 een per
copy," and the fact that it.ii piinted on
paper captured from the Staoiards after
the battle makes it of greater value as a
souvenir of the battle of Manila.

Aguinaldo and William Jennings
Bryan are the champion long distance
fighters of the age. Blanco is not "in
it" with them, and their etore of ammu
nition seems to be inexhaustible.
Aguinaldo has the thirl time pro
claimed the Philippine Republic, but
his proclamations like vaccination some
times appear to fail to take. He doubt
lees believes in the old phrare, "The
third time is the charm."
Hon. Thos. II. Tongue is making

tht Indian War veterans of the Tacific
northwest through the house. Speaker
Iteed baring withdrawn his opposition,
there is every reason to Lclieye that he
will succeed. The bill has twice been
passed by the senate.
The situation at Manila is portentous
of trouble. Germany and. Spain, it is
feared, will acknowledge belligerent
rights to the so-called Filipino republic.
If they do it will greatly complicate our
situation there. The warlike attitude of
Aguinaldo excites alarm and it is feared
ha will foice the issue and bring on a
conflict with Amorican forces. The situ
ation is a grave one.
The death of many ot our hoys at
Manila will lie at the door of the senator
la Washington, who are retarding, by
their useless speech-nuking, the ratifi
cation of the treaty if peace. Because

W. J.Shiplev, the new commaudant
of the Soldiers' Home at Koeeburg, has
been for manv rears a resident of this
city, and it well known tn urami Army
circles. Ho was for aome years em
ployed as bookkeeper by the Willamette
Lutatfing Company, and has tht repu
tation of a careful aeco-intant and an
honest, capable busiuess man. Judging
from the charges and counter-charges
that hart been made, the troth of which
it NiiLi impossible to ascertain, tne
Soldiers' Homt is in need ol a com
mandant possessing thtie qualities, and
not only the friends ot Mr. Shipley, but
the people of the entire state, may well
hone that in his selection the services ol
such a man art assureil. Oregonian.
General Kagan, who has just beeu i!
clared guilty of conduct unbecoming an
officer, bv a Court martial, participated
in the Modoc war as First Lieutenant of
tht Twentieth Infantry. He was never
acccaed of being guilty of cowardice. In
one of the battles in the lava beds he
went into action in full uniform, as a re
sult of a dispute with his brother officers
about the proper costume for an officer
to wear when goiug into battle, F.agan
claimicg that cowardice prevented them
from wearing all the gu Jy trappings of
war. His rash act made him a special
mark for the Indians and he was soon
carried back on a stretcher with a bul
let hele through his leg. For this wound
he was raised to the rank of captain.
Once I was a young mn, now I am
old, and I've never rcen a girl uufaith-
ful to hermother that ever amounted
to a one-eye button to her husband. It
is the law of God. It isn't exactly in
the bible, but it is written large and aw.
ful in the miserable life of many a misfit
home. I'm speaking for ths boys this
time. If ever you come across a girl
with a face full of roses who says as you
come to the door, "I cannot go for thirty
minutes, for the dishes are not washed"
you sit right down on the door step and
wait for her. Cause some other leilow
may come along aud carry her off, and
right there you have lost an angel.
Wait for Lhat sirl and stick to I?r like a
burr to a mule's tail. McMinnyille
We are in receipt of a copy of the con
stitution and bylaws of the Oregon His
torical Sxiety, an orgmizatiou which
was formed on the 17th day of Decem
ber, 189S, and its object being "to gath
er up and preserve what yet remains of
a once ich store of historical matter."
The officers are: 1'reeident, H. W.
Scott, vice preside!. , Judge C. B. Del
linger; secretary, I'rof. F. G. Young;
treasurer, L. B. Cox : the directors are
Governor T. T. Geer, State Superintend
antJ. II. Ackerman, Mrs. Harriet Mc
Arthur, Mre. Maria L Myrick, Trof.
J. R. Robertson and Prof. J. R. Wilson.
This organization has long been needed
and we are glad it has been effected.
There is a rich store of material for his
tory still remaining if it could only be
preserved. This is a move in the right
direction, and every old pioneer and
every person interested in. the history of
our state should help it along.
The United Slates wants no colonial
system. Our Washington fought against
it. Let us if wj love our country oppose
The above from the Albany Daily
Democrat is simply nonsense. We pre
sume that the Democrat man is not
authorized to eay w hether or not the
United States wants a colonial system,
and the statement that our Washington
fought against it is untrue. A colonial
system for ths United States at that
time had never been advocated, nor
even thought of. Washington's rcllcy
was, that we should keep ourselves free
from entaugliug European alliances,
and there was great need for that policy
at that time, for an unfortunate alliance
might have meant the death knell of the
republic. Conditions have changed and
the United States bat no need ol allianc
es. We are able to say to the world,
"This is our buHinees bands off." Tbe
policy that was necessary for the pre
servation of our institutions and our lib
erty in our infancy should not necessar
ily be followed by us since we have at
tained national manhood. Tbe reasons
for the policy no longer exist. How
ever, we have followed that policy, and
probably will continue to do so, not
trout fear as of yore, but from a feeling
of independence. We will let other
nations alone, but if they get entangled
iu our affairs we will give them a taste
of the same medicine that Dewey gave
the dons at Manila and Shatter at San
tiago. Washington did not fight against
a colonial system. He was a wise man,
and a brave man, as well as a lover of
liberty, and by lhat sign, if be were alive
today doubtless he would support the
president in tb policy t which the
Americans nation hiii been committed.
Oregon Legislators Very
In Proposing Laus.
What Lach Has Accomplished Ways
and Means Commltet Prepar
ing to Report.
Salic, Jan. 33. The clow ot the
third week ot the legislative session
shows what good reason the people had
to bs grateful to the special session last
fall for its economy in the introduction
of bills. This session has now continued as
long as that one lasted an 1 while there are
many reasons why the work accomplish
ed in the two similar periods is not sub
ject to comparative nualysie, there are
several features that cau tie compared,
or contracted, with much lutereet.
In the threo week last fall, 70 bills
were introduced in the senate, and S.I iu
the house, a total of Kit); iu the three
weeks of this session VX bills have ap
peared In the senate, aud 330 in the
house; a total ot 5.'. The senate last
fall passed 32 or its own bills and '
that came to it from the house; the
house passed 4" of its bills and :U of
those originating in the senate, though
the nutnocr that wen t to the governor is
not represented by these figures, becaoco
of amendments frequently made iu the

measure passed back to the first house
for concurrence. So far this session, the
senate has finally ' passed 34 of its bills,
and nine of those originating in the
bouse, and the bouse has passed 41 of
itiown bills, aud six from the senate.
Iu the eenate last fall but one hill was
lost on a (quro rote, and that was sub
sequently amended and passed.

Four house bills and ono eon.ito bill
have failed to pass the house, and two
mora hous? bills have been indefinitely
postponed there.
The usual number of resolutions have
appeared, consideration of some of
which, notably thoso tombing tho
matters of committee clerkships aud the
segregation of appropriations, consumed
a good deal of time.
By far tho most important mu&sure
acted npon at this session is tho apior
tionment bill, which has passed both
branches aud awaits only tho siguaturos
of the presiding otlicerj before going to
tbe governor.
Josephi's bill to reform iho ay .item ol

important measure, nnd it has jusscd

to veto the bill, if it shall reach him.
Hill's bill to regulate pilotage on the

Recommendation For Clemency
Hade By the Court.
Washington, Jan. 2S. General Kagan
commissary-general of subsidence, has
been found guilty of charges of conduct
unbecoming an officer and a gentleman,
and of conduct to the prejudice of good
order and discipline, and of the specifi
cation thereto, and has been sentenced
lo dioinirsil from tho 1'nitrd MuIch
army, bu'. with a recommendation from
the tourt for the eiercleo of eaecullte
clemency. Under the regulation, tht
court, having reached tht conclusion
that the accused was guilty, had no
choice In selecting tho penalty, tht re
gulations prescribing absolutely that ont
punialiinei.' dismissal lor tho offence.
Therefore, tht only hope for General
F.agan is In the direction ol commuta
tion, mitigation or disapproval. Colo
nel Uavla, judge ad vocatt of tht court
martial, finished his revision of tht rec
ord of tht court's proAiediug this after
noon, aud at once placed tht papers in
the hands ot Secretary Alger.
Tills action settled at onct any doubt
that may hare existed as to Ihe routine
to bo pursued iu the treatment ol the
case. As for Secretary Alger, as soon as
ho has read the record, he will place it
at once with tht president, who, under
the law, is tht final rtviawing authority.
It is his privilege to add to or takt from
it the strength of the court's recommen
dation that clemency l shown. Tht

Too other day when his court was
dceo in the intricacies of a law suit and
the lawyers wero getting Ihe honest
justice somewhat muddled up, the door
owned and in came a young man and
his best girl. One glance at the anx
ious pair was enough to convince the
practical justice what was wanted, so he
dismissed court for a fe minutes,
c eared a space in the center of the room

and asked the parties to stand op.
"Hold up your right hands," said tbe
justice, and the parties obeyed, appear
ing ready aud auxious to take the oath
of allegiance, or receive the seutcuce, or
whatever the learned justice had In
store for them.
"Wilt thou.' said ho addressing the
young man, "take this woman to be thy
huW wife, and love her and protect her
uutil you die?"
' I will," sai I tho young man heroc
"Wilt thou ia'c Ihi mau lo bu thy

No answer horn ihe ivluctaul bride.
"Wilt thou'.'" demauled the justue in

inaudible whisper.
