DRTVETTS TRIUMPHAL ENTRY
Yesterday was a great day In New
lork city. Next to the dedication of
the "Old Commander's" tomb at River
side, the Dewey celebration will rank
as the greatest in the hlsory of this
greatest city in America. But it was
not New York merely, nor England
land, nor the East, nor any other sec
Uun or geographical subdivision, but
It was the whole country that welcomed
Dewey's coming home In New York
Admiral Dewey Is the hero of all
Americans. The Nation united to hon
or htm. It did well to so honor him.
for he Is well worthy of the Nation's
honor. Ke is our hero three-fold. In
one he is a man of remarkable phys
ical daring and bravery. The account
of the battle of Manila, published this
morning in another column, will thrill
ever reader. Future generations will
read and be thrilled by the story of
that battle until the end of time.
The entering of Manila bay without
hesitation was one of the most daring
acta in history. It was that deed and
awful daring that brought surprise and
consternation to the Spanish forces
and made victory possible. Delay or
hesitation would have been dangerous
and perhaps disastrous. Admiral Dew
ey is the hero of mind. It was not
' merely ship for ship and man for man,
but the mind of Dewey against the
mind of Montojo and the training and
skill of trained minds behind the guns
against the untrained and
minds of '.he Spanish officers and sail-
ors. It was an Attack admirably
planned, and executed. Dewey had
forseen the demoralization of the en
emy's forces, and the way he directed
the attack proclaimed him a hero of
" mind. "
And none the lees is he also of spirit
the hero who stands for the right
always and fights for-the right when
; ever necessary. ' In all Dewey's actions
he has proclaimed himself to be pre
eminently the man of mind, the man of
force and the man of spirit. It Is to
this kind of a hero that America hae
given Its admiration and honor, and
the honor of his triumphal entry was
all the greater because it was all un
sought and unthought of by him. It
Is safe to say he was not thinking of his
entrance to New York harbor when he
entered Manila bay.
May the Omnipotent power preserve
this popular Idol from the corruption
and seduction of the tricksters In his
THE DETRACTORS OF OTIS.
It Is well known that the better class
of democratic newspapers, with one
exception The New York Post are
unanimously supporting the president's
Philippine policy. Unfortunately, the
rational organization of that party is
not now In the hands of men who are
real democrats, and the unexpected re
fusal of the better party newspapers
to stand by the policy of non-expansionists
and the plan of detraction
mapped out by these leaders has car
ried consternation among them. The
whole conduct of the war has been
flawless, though there has been a slight
tendency In some quarters, both re-
publican and democratic, to criticise the
selection of Otis as supreme command
er of the Philippine force. No sensi
ble man blames the administration for
such a mistake, even if it be a mistake
and that la yet far from proven since
no general In ail the American army
had a finer record than Otis when he
was tent to the Philippines. But this
one possible vulnerable point In the
Philippine policy has been eetied by
the president's political opponents with
the hope upon this, if upon no other,
to hsng an excuse for fighting the ad
ministration and the republican party
which may enlist the sympathy of the
better element of their leaders and
newspapers. To this end. every effort
is being directed to the discredit of
Otis. How despicable the schemes and
methods of these plotters are was shown
up in good style by the San Francisco
Chronicle some days ago. Referring to
the return of the Montana troops, the

Drevlously disembarked, have been
caught and held. A concerted effort,
directed by the democratic national
committee, has been made by democrat
ic and mugwump newspapers to get In
coming soldiers to criticise the conduct
of the svar in the Philippine and
particularly the soldiership of General
blwell S. Otis. Such criticisms, when
made, have Invariably hurt the stand
ing of the soldier. In that they have
convicted him out of his own mouth
of conduct prejudicial to good order
and military discipline. The democrat

All they want is material for making

Otis and give the credit of the sue

cen' experience has shown that young
and thoughtless soldiers, given a chance
of wide publicity for such views as
they are willing to adapt to the policy
of the democratic campaign managers,
ar apt to say things which they do
not mean, which are unjust and which
cloud their title to the honorable dis
charge from the servloe which will be
almost their only trophy of the war.
The Chronicle wishes particularly to

may say what they feel that the sub

stead of compliments, the Interviews
carried curses. The only safety for the
soldier, therefore. Is In an unbroken
reticence when questioned by reporters
about any of the topics related to the
political issue of expansion.

: men' during the past few weeks, has
been enlarged and much Improved in
i its general and local news service, and
for tjiat ruon has become a more val-

tution in the city In which It Is pub
lished. As a newspaper it now ranks
among the best In Oregon.
What is still better, the Astorian, un
der Its new management, perceives the
futility anJ folly of antagonizing Port
land and the Columbia river and gives
evidence of a desire and a determina
tion to wake a strong, steady, honest
pull for Astoria and the Lowvr Colum

absurd theory that Astoria Is to be

READ THIS BY A DEMOCRAT.
Col. Watterson Addresses a Few Re
mark to Gov. Altgeld.
Amid the babel of tongue Into which
the democratic party ha fallen, It Is
not at all time easy for the stranger,
who seeks hi way to find It. If Thom
as Jefferson should come to life he
would have first to ask the time ot day
and then the shortest cut bark to where
he came from: and even Andrew Jack
son, aghast at the fantastic things to be
seen and heard, might. In sheer help
lessness, exclaim, "By the Eternal!"
In his speech at Cooper Instltutute the
othvr night Oov. AltgWd assured the
audience that the new Declaration of
Independence was In the Chicago plat
form of lSJi. He said that for thirty
ytars after the war the democracy
"stood for practically the same things
that the republican party stood for."
That "It had become a mere conven
ience of political and commercial man
ipulators." and that "during these thir
ty dark years It held out no inspira
tion. It pointed out no great principle.
It espoused no great cause. It made no
heroic fight for anything."
For thirty years, that Is from 1M to
1S9. the democratic party, according to
Its self-elected Moses from Rotterdam,
or at least from Don't-giv-er-dam. was
a cowardly corruptlonlM. playing sec
ond fiddle to the republicans.
We had been of a different Impression.
Somehow we had got it Into our head

eral fteU of national politics, and that'

gress, had made a fairly good fight
aeulni-t the radical scheme of re
construction Dy which the constitu
tion was to be brushed aside and a
centralized despotism to be set up In
room of the'old free union of the states.
Again, we had the fancy, or conceit, or
what you will, that the party, with
Carlisle at Its head and such men as
David A. Wells and Frank Hurd and
William R. Morrison and Randolph
Tucker and Roger Q. Mills, had rung
a very clear note and struck a very
brave blow .it monopoly through their
fight In favor of a tariff for revenue
only; and, although the fruit of their
labor were lost to u by the broken
promises of the Cleveland administra
tion, criticism comes with poor grace
from a person who, like Governor
Altegeld. set aside the principle of
tariff reform In order that a bargain
might be struck with an organized body
of free silver protectionist republicans.
