.PREVENTION VS. CURE.
The Porland police departmnet is
proceeding cautiously, says the Ore
gonian, tn regard to the strike now In
progress, the asumptlon being that tt
Is easier, better and by far safer to
prevent conflict between the oppos
ing forces of labor than to stop one
after It has been precipitated by the
first blow. This is wise. Deplorable
results follow hasty action. The coun
sels of moderation and conciliation
must ultimately prevail In all con
tests between employers and employed.
Far better that the sober second
thought should rule before acts of vi
olence take place than after. "He that
Is slow to auger," says the wise man,
"is greater than the mighty, and he
that ruleth bis spirit, than he that
taketh a city." : In all the centuries
that have passed since this declara
tion was made it Is not probable that
any man has regretted having given
heed to it.
- GIVES UP HER DEAD.
That Dewey's men- could and did
shoot to hit is proven by 15 holes found
In the hull of the Spanish warship
Relna Christina, ; which has Just been
raised in Manila harbor and beached.
The skeletons of about SO of her crew
were fouad In the hulk. How many
heroes there may nave been among
the poor fellows history will perhaps
never say. They were not on the win
ning side and the world thought the
fact that our forces escaped without
a scratch was a more noticeable event
than that thousands of the enemy met
sudden and violent death with hardly
moment's warning. It Is probable
that we will be generous enough to
return the qrruesome relics to Spain
for burial. It is said that all the sunk
en ships may be raised, as the bulls
are In a fair state of preservation.
The committee on press and publicity
of the Lewis and Clark Centenial ex
position which will be held at Portland,
Oregon, U. S. A., In 105, has offered a
cah prize of $500 for the best design
in colors, symbolic of the Lewis and
Clark exploring expedition of 1804-6, the
settlement of the western part of the
United States by Americans, the devel
opment of trade on the Pacific ocean,
and the re-awakening of Asia. Terms
of competition will be furnished on ap
plication. Here is a chance for all ar
tists. The competition will close June
1, 1303. Designs must be submitted
before that date and should be ad
dressed to I. N. Flelschner, chairman
of the committee on press and publicity
of the Lewis and Clark Centennial expo

Thirty-eight years ago today Abra
ham Lincoln, sixteenth president of the
United States, and the man whose fame
grows brighter as time passes by, died
by the hand of an assassin. The world
has mads wonderful strides since that
dark day. Other men have displayed
magnificent talents and exalted char
acters. Marvelous achievements nave
been wrought out. Men have become
heroes and martyrs. But no man has
arisen whose life In the slightest degree
dims the lustre of fame which gilds the
name of Lincoln. No other life seems
to touch his. No other nature so
deep, so true, so lovable. History can
never repeat Itself In this case. Like
circumstances can never again produce
such a man because they can not ex
ist. 'That necessity will never place
a ruler In his position again In our
land is to be hoped. It Is well we
have the memory of his life. It is an
example worth millions to rising gener
ations for ages to come.
A dozen or more young men connect
ed with the department of agriculture
at Washington have for several months"
been living on a diet prescribed by Dr.
Wiley, who Is seeking to determine the
chemical effscts of borax and other
chemicals on prepared food.
It has developed within the last week
that all who have been at the doctor's
tahle are taking on a pink complexion,
giving thsm a healthy appearance, as
though resulting from a good circu
lation of blood and out door exercise.
If this proves genuine. Dr. WUey is

POSTAGE FOR THE PEOPLE.
The day of 1 cent letter postage
throughout the United States is sure
to come before many years have pass
ed, because the mail receipts and prof
its in the principal cities' and towns
are steadily increasing and mounting
to amazing figures. Even the gener
ous extension of free deliveries over
long routis in the country districts,
as well as in towns and villages, in
addition to cities, will not for a gen
eration stand In the way of cutting
the cost of lettter stamps In two.
