NEW YORK.' Oct. 1$. A speclnl
the Herald from Washington says:
The belief at the war department Is
that the series of promotions and re
tirements following Shafter's removnl
from active service will result In Gen
eral Lawton getting the brigadier-generalship,
and that the next vacancy In
that rank, 'in January, 180. following
the retirement of General Anderson,
will be filled by General MacArthur.
All the present general ofTlcers of the
regular army will retire before Gen
eral Lawton, with the exception of

April 14, 1907. Oenera'. Lawton will re
tire one month earlier. Should any
thing happen to General Wade, General

Lawton, by his appointment now, would
be the Immediate suotv.wsor of General
Mile upon Ma retirement In 1909, and
would have command of the army for
nearly four years. Whether appointed
now or In January, General MacArthur,
If he lives, will be sure to be the com
mandTng general for at least two years.
There Is a str.mg movement on fo(4
to have General Wood, the commanding
ofllcer at 8antlagc, appointed to th
present vacancy, but at the war de
partment there Is no expectation that'
he will come In ahead of Generals Law

MEXICO'S TRIBUTE TO THE UNI
In his short and graceful speech at
the Chicago day banquet Senor Marls-
cal, the Mexican minister of foreign af
fairs, Indicated that an act of friend-
I ship performed In an hour of supreme
trial had effaced from the minds of hlB
' countrymen all that bitter hostility to
the United States which they felt after
the unfortunate affair over Texas.
The French emperor had taken ad-
I vantage of the great rebellion In our
own land to promote an ambitious
schema of foreign conquest. Maxlmll-
lan, his tot, dep?ndod upon the French
'troops to support his title, and while
the rebellloj lasted we were not in a
position to do more than protest
against the usurpation as an Infraction
o( the Monroe doctrine. In this way
8-cretary Seward oonnerved the prin
ciple, which he strengthened subse
quently with more forcfole representa
tions. At the conclusion of the civil
war a great and splendidly disciplined
army was released for foreign service
and nave a new significance to the ut
terances of diplomacy. ' Napoleon then
r"Ci'xnled that discretion was the bet
ter part of valor and wi'.hdrew his sol
diers. The triumph of Juarex over Max
imilian followed, and the Mexican re
public was re-established on a much
firmer basis than ever.
In referring to this Incident in the his
tory of his country. Senor Marlscal
'Less than 40 years ago we had to
battle against Napolonlc Intervention,
and In spite of our heroic resistance,
prolonged for five long years, we might
have succumbed, yielding to force, had
It net been for the powerful Influence
of the United States, which promptly
settled the matter In our favor. That
hlstcrlcal fact has not been forgotten
by any true Mexican, and we will keep
It engraved In our hearts."
The era of good feeling thus Inaugu
rated has continued ever since. The
two governments hive exchanged cour
teslesfrspeatedly, and, its th minister
testifies,' American capital has been an
important factor In Mexican progress.
So close haa been the bond between the
nations that while the foreign policy
of M ilo consists In cultivating a
friendly 1 intercourse with all countries,
It Sin at "a real Intimacy with' the
United States." The cause, says Senor
M'Uis-al. ;ls not vicinity only or the
memory 'of that past favor.
"We have adopted your Institutions,
we have shaped our political being af
ter your model, and the symbol of our
nationality Is almost Identical with
yours -both are the famous bird of
Jove, an eagle. May these two eagles
soar forever, flying along parallel lines
tho American guiding the Mexican
following always encouraged by the
example of her elder slsrter."
This, too, Is the sentiment of the Il
lustrious soldier and statesman who
has watched over the destinies of Mex
ico for so many years, and who has
eroded a stately and endurtng struc
ture above the ruins of anarchy and
LOGIC IS LOGIC.
It Is told that a grandfather, well
known In the English house of com
mon", was chatting amicably with his
Httli! granddaughter, who was snugly
ensconced on his knee. "What makes
your hair so white, grand pa?" the lit
tle miss queried. "I am very old. my
dear: I was In the ark." replied his
lordship, with a painful disregard of
the truth. "Oh! Are you Noah?"
"No.". "Are you Shem. then?" "No; I

"No. ' ' Then," said the little one, who
was fast nearlng the limit of her Bib

A regatlve reply was given to this que

be. "But. grandpa, if you are not

ANOTHER TOWN HEARD FROM.
Baker City Republican.
It would be a sorry day for Oregon
if the actual operation of the O. R.
A N.wore thrown Into the Omaha office.
It would mean ruin to the local Indus
tries of the state, a was the case be
fore when the Union Pacific operated
the through line. Everything was pros
tituted to "through" traffic and big
"transcontinental" tonnage. It was na
tural that a manager 3,000 miles away
from this territory should know little
of local conditions and pay little atten
tion to his local officers.
Kudyard Kipling Will address a poli
tical meeting in London next Friday in
support of the government's policy in
the Transvaal dispute. In view of the
novelist's disinclination or inability to
live on this side because of his brother-in-law
no one would be surprised to
see him moke the best of the situation
by going In for politics in England.
Among other things it might result in
a new lot of moat surprising "copy."
