LET THEM CAST LOTS.
Japan is not having much trouble
.with China. The Chinese army and thej
march to Peking are a trifle compared to
what she will have to contend with after
China is no longer in the problem. ; The
ultimate division of Corea, the passing
around of the spoils and the apportion
ment of the plunder is what is going to
make her diplomats grow gray and her
people weary. Russia wants a portion
of Corea for a terminus for her Siberian
railway because Vladivostock is too far
north and not a good and accessible
harbor. France wants a coaling station
on the island of Formosa, 'which want
properly interpreted means that she
wants the whole island. - Great Britain
would be surlily content with the island
of Cbusan but would take as much more
as she could get. Germany has not put
in her claim yet -but it is safe to say she
will want part of the plunder, and Italy
and Portugal each have a navy, large
enough to make their requests for coal
ing stations and an island to appear
; In view of these complications it is
well enough for the "United States to
attepd to her own business, to settle her
'monetary affairs, and business that con
cerns ' her.- Greeham's handling of
Hawaii would not cause enthusiastic
encore, but if his talents are too large for
the home market they should at least
be utilized nearer home; and irv this
connection it might be proper to add
that the Nicaragua canal would furnish
a subject large enough forhim, and
all of us.
. Dr.' Wallace has stirred up a pretty
mess down in Portland ; and while it
may be true that be is nioJted thereto by
personal reasons and for personal ag
grandizement, the fact remains that he
tells the truth when he says gambling
is carried -on in Portland with the
knowledge of the police. Whether his
insinuations concerning eome of the
officers of Multnomah county are trne or
not, remains to be seen. ; District At
torney Hume says Dr. Wallace falsifies
the conversations had with . him ; but
even so, the fact remains that Dr. Wal
lace easily found four gambling rooms
that the police were unable, or unwill
ing, to discover. However, the matter
will die down in a little while, and the
games will continue at the old stand.
As long as - public sentiment is hot
strong' enough to compel the closing of
all gambling houses, it can be taken as
a fact that the police force and other ex
ecutive officer's are not.
' Chicago has a club known as the Two
Million Club. The members have for a
motto "Chicago FirBt, Last, and All the
Time," which, it is needless to add, is
not indicative of power to' create. The
club had a big banquet Wednesday
night, at which 500 representative Chi
cago citizens were present. The re
markable thing about the affair was
that seated at .the main table was the
first white child born in the city, a
daughter of Col. R. J. Hamilton. The
population of the city is now nearly two
millions, and yet within the life time of
one person the city has been created.
There is no country in the world that
can make such a showing. . There is but
one United States, and there never will
be but one Chicago. .
The big newspapers can safely claim
and certainly capture the prize for both
.quality and quantity ot nerve which
they always have with , them. This
morning we received an offer from' the
Independent, published in New York.,
to send us their' paper for a year if we
would set up and run for three .consecu
tive issues a reading advertisement of
their paper, next to " reading matter.
The price of the Independent is $3. Our
price ' for the . service asked would be
$25. This being thus, . the advertise
ment of our benevolent contemporary
will not appear in these columns.
There seems to be pretty good grounds
for believing that Bunco Kelley has con
cluded to tell all he knows about the
Syres murder and also what he knows
a jot opium smuggling and the inside
blfctory of the Haytian Republic cases
or those growing out of the smuggling of
opium and Chinese . by that vessel.
Kelley it is said feels that he is being
abandoned by those whom he thinks
' should stay- by hini and proposes to
- make a clean breast of all that he knows.
It is quite probable that some startling
developments will be made when next
those cases come up. .' '
, Emperor William of Germany in yad
dressing some new recruits after having
administered the oath of allegiance, said
.among other things : "Obey the oath
. you have taken and be courageous, des
pising death." This piece of advice no
doubt rolled sonoriously off the em
peror's tongue, but it comes under Josh
Billings' description of it being better to
give than to receive, "advice and castor
the parties avoid what they despise, but
despising death at the cannon's mouth
is another affair. - . -
- -Governor McGraw of Washington, in
issuing his Thanksgiving proclamation
follows Governor Pennoyer's example
and quotes scripture. . He calls atten
tion, to the fact that. "Whom the Lord
loveth He chasteneth.?' Wonder if the
good governor was thinking of the dem
ocrats or populists, they both got 'some
of it. ., - ' "; ; ' ' "
vTwo of the young men of Company C,
First regiment, have been charged with
swiping a portion of the receipts of the
sideshows at. the late society circus.
This serves to bring that performance
nearer to the -standard of the genuine
circus.. " ' - .
SOMETHING 'AtivO i- UIAMONDS.
Their Appearance la the Rough, the Cutting-and
The ruby mirrors the flame of fire,
the sapphire reflects the blue of the
heavens, the emerald pictures the depth
of the sea, but the diamO'rid is a dew
drop laden with, sunbeams, the most
poetic creation of an organic, nature.
Every moment it flashes a new calor
now blue, now red, now royal purple,
now golden yellow, says . Home and
Country. ' '
In the rough that is, just as the
stone has been washed out of the clay
and broken loose from the ore a dia
mond presents the appearance of a
crystal pebble,' somewhat pointed at
each end. It usually appears to be of
a brownish" hue but now and again a
ray of light will seem to leap from the
very heart of the stone.' From this
rough form of - the gem the diamond
cutter decides what the. shape of the.
finished jewel is to be. It should be
the aim of -the diamond cutter to .pre
serve this octahedral character of the
gem. To accomplish this the rough
stone is first split or . chipped.
The operation is a most difficult onei
requiring- an insight into the character
of each individual stone. There' are
hardly two gems that can be treated in
a precisely similar manner. Every
diamond has a thorough individuality
and must be treated accordingly in
order to obtain the best results; The
"splitting" is accomplished by fixing
the gera in a block of cement, after
which the' angles must be split off in
accordance with the direction, of the
crystallization. Flaws are also taken
out in this operation and the diamond
given its future shape. -i
The diamonds most highly prized are
the Indian and Brazilian stones. They
are peuerally of the purest white, the
most complete transparency "water"
and the most brilliant "fire.
GANDER AGAINST BEAR.
And the Cub Did N'pt Come Ont Best In
. the Fight.
. An Alameda sale '.keeper, 'has. -'a
black bear cub about a foot and a half
high when he stands on his hind legs
and reaches for a stranger's coat-tails.
He is full of mischief or fight, as oc
casion may require, but withal very
discreet. He knows he is not big
enough to whip the grocer's dog, but
he doesn't, hesitate to intimidate the
candy man's cat.
The other day, says the San Fran
cisco Post, a big gander marched grave
ly up the street. The bear sized him
up, and said to himself:
"He's my meat."
He advanced on the gander, who
marched. slowly and steadily on till the
growling cub barred his way. Then he
extended, hi-j wings, stretched out his
neck and Tried to make the" cub
ashamed of himself. The bear made
two or three vicious, .but ineffectual,
cuff at the gander and then stopped to
see what he had accomplished. -
. Just at this juncture the gander took
a firm hold on the cub's ear and com
menced pounding him over the head
with his wings. The cub was a quit
ter, and started to beat a nrecinitous
retreat, but the gander, wouldn't let
go. He just hung on. and thumped
away. , '
When the dust and feathers settled
the gander was trying' to find the ten
der portion of what appeared to be a
piece of the bear's ear.
FUN BROUGHT FAME.
An Encounter with tx "Cop" Suggested a
. "Popular" Song.
It is a mystery to many how a "popu
lar" song becomes popular. It seems
to spring out of the pavement or to
f sing on the back of the wind. A popu
lar, song is usually a genuine inspira
tion, which often comes in a queer way.
One night last year Stanley Wood, the
dramatist - a nd editor of the Great Di
vide, hurried up to the post office
in haste to inquire about a letter. All
the doors on Park row were closed,
and Mr. 'Wood was in supreme disgust.
"Say, officer," lie exclaimed to a po
liceman near by, "how on earth am I
going to got into the post office?" -.
"You'll find your mail in. Heaven,
young fellow," said the. cop, "if you
try to get into' the post office by the
Park row doors."
The officer's reply seemed amusing to
Mr, Wood, and it took in his mind the
form of, a comic story in verse.- But
there seemed to be a false note, and
Mr. . Wood turned his poem into a pa-
the tic little story and some, one wrote
appropriate music. The song was pub
lished, ' and one- day Mr. .Wood was
amazed to find everybody around the
theaters in Chicago whistling his song..
That is the story of how "Wait, Mr.
Postman," happened to come into ex
istence and become popular.' . i
