JMarihfieM - - - Oregon
Senator Fulton has been over on
Coos Bay, and came out strong there
for a 40-foot channel, so he is re
garded more favorably over there
than lie was when he said that a 35
foot channel might be all that could
1)0 secured. Tho Coos Bay people
want a man who will go after a chan
nel of not an Inch less than 40 feet,
and agree to get it, too. This offers
a hint to Mr. Mulkey and whoever
olso has an idea of running for sen
ator; when visiting Coos Bay posi
tively promise a channel of not only
40 but 45 feet. The deeper the bet
ter, of course, and what's five feet,
raoro or less, to a man who wants to
be- senator? Beside?, the people of
Coos Bay are well deserving of what
ever they want.
The above Is from the Oregon
Journal of the 3d Instant. It is in
tended to be a bit derisive and is
playfully malicious. No uoubt it was
ljorn of a knowledge that depth tem
porarily obtained in tho great chan
nel and on the tremendous bar at tho
mouth of the Columbia river cost a
few Hundred thousand dollars. That
is tho troublesome fact Senator Ful
lon had in mind when he expressed
liimself last year in favor of 30 feet
on Coos Bay bar. He did not know
then that to get 40 feet on Coos Bay j au ifa&ue wi,jcn mst wound Japan
fyar would be almost as easy and In- i lQ tne quid to accept exclusion in
expensive as to get 30 feet. He did llurjam!e ot- treaties would be for her
not know then that such an improve- i to aiirajt tuat the Japanese are an la
ment would be practically permanent, i ferlor raC6i But tne duflculties of
He has studied tho question since, j
and knows as well as any man in
Central and Southern Oregon that
the- development of the state beyond
tho Columbia and Willamette Valleys
and the future prosperity of those
valleys depend just as much on opon
jng of this great harbor to its great
est possibilities as on the construction
of railroads. No man who is so little
acquainted with tho state of Oregon
as not to know that Coos Bay is her
only deep sea possibility among har
bors is fit to represent tho state of
Oregon in tho United States Senate.
No man who is progressive when tho
Columbia and lower Willamette are
concerned and grows conservative
when Central and Southern Oregon
aro mentioned is big enough to rep
resent all-Oregon anywhere. Coos
Bay wants to hear all Senatorial can
didates expross themselves with as
much intjjlllgonco on the subject of
rivers, and harbors as Senator Fulton.
Tho nvcrago Coos Bnyito Is an expert
on harbors, and if the candidate does
not know anything about tho subject
lie, had better not talk at all. An
ignorant man is a very unsuccessful
flatteror. This Is a good hint to tho
thoc candidates. It does not neces
sarily follow that Senator Fulton gots
-tho prize merely becauso ho has fur
nalied positive evidence- of fitness.

October in accordance with tho first
notice, but as thoso notices were
drawn without fully complying with
the. latest enactments of tho Legis
lature, tho change to November 7
-was necessary to make tho election
valid. ' But tho High School oloctlon
Is Mat as important for this com
munity on November 7 ns it was on
October 31. and tho people of Marsh
field cannot excuse themselves for
being absent and falling to cast thoir

tuWy expected that tho addition of a
full four years' course and tho In
crease anticipated in the eight grades
embracing the primary, intermediate
nnd grammar departments will bring
It up to 600 within two months. Tho
schools is. becoming a principal Instl-
i ution rather than a mere incident of
.he city's life. It must bo taken caro
if and taken caro of munificently, for
dticatlon Is and must be the basis of
."oos Bay's reputation under all cir
Minstances. Coos Bay has great na
tural features through which it
must and will be a great city sooner
jr later. What is done In tomorrow's
election will enable tho future his
torian to determine what manner of
people are we who lived in Marsh
field while Marshfield was yot small.

ENGLISH VIEWS ON
What Big English Newspnier TlUnks
of Japanese Question and Dec
laration of Independence.
Tho subjoined editorial from the
London Mail expresses a certain
phase of English sentiment on tho
North American-Japaneso situation.
But the dispatch of this force (re
ferring to Evans' battleship fleet)
does not remove the question at issuo
between the United States and Ja
pan; it may Indeed, unless great self
restraint and tact are displayed on
either side, aggravate tho difficulty.
The postion of Japan Is this: she
'claims for her citizen tho same rights
and the same treatment that are ac
corded by the United States to citi
zens of other civilized communities.
President Roosovelt, In his message
to Congress of last December, em
phasized tho fact that such treatment
had been accorded to the Japanese
in California. He declared that tho
hostility to the Japanese displayed
by the mob of San Francisco was
"most discreditable to us as a peo
ple, and may be fraught with tho
gravest consequences to the nation."
Tho people of the Pacific states are
determined not to admit the Japan
ese. They complain, that tho Japan
ese standard of life is lower than
theirs, that the immigrants of that
race undersell white labor, and that,
if freely admitted, a population
which is not capable of assimilation
in the American nation would grow
up, and California and Oregon would
cease to be "white men's countries."
Similar signs of hostility to Japanese
immigration have shown themselves
in British Columbia, where mobs, in
stigated by labor leaders, have at
tacked the Japanese. Yet In Canada
uuil Uie United Staces cue Japauebu
Have treaty rights to wnicli theii
country can appeal.
Tho ill-treatment of her citizens is
tl rjnit.ed States aro equally clear.
: uuw lb it poaaiulo ior u democratic
-avornment to force immigrants
against whoso presence its subjects
ruuel, and whoso assimilation is Im
possible, upon its subjects?
As the ally of Japan and the sin
cere trlend of tho United States, it
should be the aim of Britain to exert
every possible effort to reconcile tho
uiiterences and to secure a compro
mise by which further friction might
be prevented. If the United States
made a fair concession to the Jap
anese sense of honor, it 1b at least
conceivablo that tho Japanese gov
ernment might waive its oxistlng
treaty rights. If, for example, it
wero agreed that the treatment of
American citizens in Japan was to bo
identical and recii rocal with tho
treatment of Japanej subjects In
America, there would oa no humilia
