An unwonted and unwelcome note
has been wanted by the rebels In the
Dominican Republic, aays th New
Tor Tribune. " They have announced
to the American minister, according to
report, that M they are successful in
vertnrntng the (rovernment of Pres
ident Wos y Oil, and In establishing- a
government of their own. they will not

any engagements with the
fnlted States into which the govern
ment of Wos y GU may have entered.
They mean not only resolution, but re-
limitation. Then, with assurance that
talis little short of being sublime, they

they are in the tropica, they need no

This Is an extraordinary perform

and evil departure in ' revolutions.
H Itier to revolutionists have generally

ments which they - have overthrown
have already pointed out that our
new-Granada treaty of 18 has been
maintained unimpared through various
changes of government. During Gen
era! Castro's troublous career In Ven
ezuela we have had occasion to remark
that he at least loyally fulfilled the
agreements of his predecessors. To
do the contrary, to do what these Dom
bi leans are reported to be threatening
would come perilously near to making
international outlaws of the revolu
tionary people. If with every change
of government a country has to repud
iate ft public debts and Its treaties. It
" Is not difficult to imagine the only kind
of dealings resoeetable powers would
have with it.,

In Saturday morning's Astorlan ap
peared an advertisement for a package
which Imd been lost upon the street.
Before 11 o'clock that morning the
package was brought to this office In
response to the brief local asking that
the finder leave the package at The
Astorian. The owner was called by
phone and told that her property had
been found by honest people and was
now at this office. She seemed very
much surprised and said: "Is that so?
Why, I never expected to recover It!
I just put the advertisement in the pa
per with but little hope of the lost arti
cle being returned. I am. Indeed, very
much pleased." About one week ago
a gentleman advertised in the Astorian
for a girl to do housework. The ad
vertisement appeared, in the morning,
and when he went home at noon the
"new girt had cooked his dinner.

young lady from neighboring town

President Roosevelt has Just sent his
photograph to a Portland colored Ma
sonic lodge which has just dedicated a
new hall, to adorn Its wall as ft com
panion portrait of his martyred pre-
deccssor, eaya the Hllsboro Independ
ent. The President has autographed
the description, 'To Enterprise Lodge,

revive in Oregon the question of the
legitimacy . of African Freemasonry.
The grand lodge of Washington several
yearn ago held that lodges having their
origin in the Prince Hall grand
lodge were not clandestine and Past
Grand Master XTpton wrote a lengthy
treatise to prove that Prince Hall was
legitimately made m a field lodge dur
ing the Revolution and that perfect
succession could be traced from him to
the present African lodges. Prom this
position the grand lodge has never re
ceded but It has withheld recognition
in deference to southern Bentiment.
The grand lodge of Oregon wisely re
frained from artijn in the matter.
Europe Is considerably stirred up
over the scandal Involving the good
name of Princess Al'ce, daughter of
Don Carlos, the pretender to the Span

deploring the occurrence, will not de

in the princess and that of the daugh
