Few voters understand the work
done by National Campaign Commit
tees between the time of nomination
of presidential candidates and elec
tion day. Of course, "publicity" is
the first object and this must be se
cured at any cost, and by any means.
One of the first steps of the Commit
tee is always to create a bureau to
provide literature for distribution,
and a bureau to provide speakers.
The most energetic work is carried
on in the "doubtful" States, each
party bending all energies to secure
these votes. The average reader will
be surprised at the magnitude of the
work involved and the many points
to be covered, and will cease to won
der at the enormous sums demanded
for "campaign funds."
The watchword of the Campaign
Committee is publicity. To get
this it tries to catch both the eve and
the ear of every voter who is not o:
its party but who may be influenced
Dy tne pen ot tne writer, the pencil
of the cartoonist or the tongue o:
the orator. This is why one of the
first steps is the creation of a bureau
to provide literature, and a bureau to
furnish speakers.
With the field of action plotted ou'
the bureaus which are to enlighten
the masses as to the virtues of their
side and the sins of the other, get
ready for business. The press bureau
organizes with a chief, and enough
assistants to examine and edit the
mass of copy required from the staff
of writers employed. Editorials, re
views, statistical articles, witty hits
directed at the opposing party, even
poetry, form part of the product
this literature-factory to be spread
broadcast over the country some o:
it printed by the bureau in leaflet
and pamphlet to be delivered directly
to the voter, some of it to reach him
through the medium of the newspa
jacciuamg tne newspaper copy
which each party furnishes on
very liberal a scale, the press bureaus
put out material, ranging from pam
phlets to posters, by the ton, and
sometime the carload. It was not
uncommon for it to be shipped by
.freight from Chicago during the
campaign of 1900.
The Roseburg Plaindealer soberly

argues, or rainer assumes, inai ine
opportunities of American working
men, and such prosperity as they

as a sample oi many utnera sees
nothing in our vast area, in the in
calcuable wealth and infinite variety
nt nnr roannrres. nothing in our loca
tion, the best in the world for a great
nation, nothing in prolific soil and
temperate climate, nothing in the
Dienaing ih prugieoaic "a y co
pies that has culminated here, with
these unparalleled opportunities, in
the most enlightened and progressive
people on earth, nothing in American
inventive genius and American energy
and enterprise, nothing in the fact
that American labor cost, though
American is the best paid in the
world, is notwithstanding the lowest
in the world, the quality of the article
being considered, nothing in the seg
regation here of church and state,
nothing in our splendid public school
system nothing in anything on
earth except high tariff. That, and
that alone, is the cause of American
prosperity. Portland Journal.
Really! But where was all that
"inventive genius" and "American en
ergy and enthusiasm," the "infinite
variety of our resources and incalcu
lable wealth," dear brother, during
that long-to-be-remembered period
between 1893 and 1897? Why, we
even had "church and state segre
gated" all through that tariff-re-Xormed
era come to thing of it,
nearly everything the country had
became hopelessly segregated, before
the people could get a chance to vote
again and to reinstate the protective
policy. In fact, this "energetic and
enterprising country" had all the
things so attractively enumerated by
our esteemed contemporary excepting
a protective tariff, and we ..had that
as soon as the people could get at
the ballot boxes and the' country
has prospered ever since as never be
fore. Salem Statesman.
The members of the military com-
nanv ot this city will not do
without social and entertainment ad
vantages at the big encampment near
Tacoma this month. The Young
Men's Christian Associations of Ore
gon, Washington and Idaho have
united in providing large tents in
which an abundance of good reading
matter will be provided, including the
local papers from the towns from
which the companies go. Free writ
ing materials will also be provided,
so that the boys will not need to take
any stationery with them. Band con
certs and entertainments of various
sorts will probably be arranged,
games will be provided, ice water will
be on tap, and other privileges will
be afforded. Every one of the four
thousand men at the camps will be
welcomed at the Y. M. C. A. tents,
and one of the best features of the
whole thing is that it costs the boys
not a cent To be sure, it will cost
the association a good round sum,
but money will be provided by busi
ness men who know the good work
the associations are doing. During
the militia encampments in Washing
ton the past two years, the associa
tions have provided outfits Bimilar to
those being arranged for this year,
only on a much smaller scale, and
thev were used to the limit. Last
year the 700 troops at the Washing
ton encampment wrote over 200 let
ters a day in the Association tent.
The encampments in many states
have similar outfits, and the army of
ficers welcome them and give special
locations, realizing the great benefit
to the men.
The increase of immigration likely
to be occasioned by the present cut
rates of the steamship lines must nec
essarily carry with it many interest
ing and profitable lessons in political
economy and public sanitation for
this country. So far there has been
no sensible increase in the nuinber of
arrivals, but current statistics appear
to show a marked increase in the
number of proportionate deportations
as compared with that of a corre
sponding period last year. The pres
ent influx cannot be taken as an indi
cation of what we may expect for fu
ture months, when the lower classes
of foreigners Bhall have been better
informed concerning the cheapness of
transportation. When such a time
comes the numbers that may crowd
into our ports may be something ap

Skrydloff, has distinguished itself by
sallying forth and sinking several
merchant ships as well as two Japa

It is stated that during the last 10
years there has been no time that the
Colorado state militia has been free
from guard duty in two mining coun

owners are radically wrong, and the
tax-payers of that state have a right
to insist on a speedy settlement of
the trouble. The cost to the state in
keeping the militia on duty is more
than half a million dollars a year.

Chefoo, July i. 8: 30 p. m. What should prove
to be a decisive naval engagement was in progress this
arternoon midway between Chefoo and Poda.
The steamer Chefoo, which has arrived here,
passed within 16 miles oi a Japanese squadron, consis
ting of two battleships and four cruisers, all actively
engaged. The Russian fleet was not seen but the
distance of the Japanese from land precludes the possi
bility of any attack on the land batteries.
The cautain of the Chefoo sa3's he heard a terrific
explosion, but was unable to discern whether a Japa
nese or Russian ship was affected.
The battle is held here to confirm the Japanese re
port that only four of the larger Russian warships were
at Port Arthur last night.
Chefoo, July i. A party of Russians and Chi
nese arrived here today by junk direct from Port Ar
thur, having left there yesterda'. They report that
for several days shells from both land and sea have
been falling in the town, but doing little damage.
The Russians who resisted the ad vane e of the
Japanese suffered severely. Many dead and wounded
men have been brought to Port Arthur. The hospi
tal there is overcrowded.
A Chinaman who left Port Arthur last night, and
w o has arrived here, says there are only four Rus
sian warships, cruisers and battleships in the harbor
and none outside. The opinion prevails that the fast
er ships succeeded in eluding the five Japanese war
ship maintaining the blockade.

Cured of Chronic Diarrhoea After
Ten Years of Suffering.
"I wish to say a few words in praise of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarr
hoea Remedy," says Mrs. Mattie Burgs,
of Martinsville, Va. "I suffeted from
chronic diarrhoea for ten years and dur
ing that time tried various medicines
w thout obtaining any permanent relief.
Last summer one of my children waa
taken with cholera morbus, and I pro
cured a bottle of this remedy. Only
two doses were required to give her en
tire relief. I then decided to try tho
medicine myself, and did not nsa all of
one'.ttle before I waa well and I have
never since been troubled with that
complaiut. One cannot say too much
in favor ot that wonderful medicine."
