INCREASE MILITARY STRENGTH
ISow that the appointment of the Ven
esuela commission has been made anil
the country is satisfied with the men
selected, there will be a dimanition of
war-talk for a time. The examination
which the commiitr is to make will
occupy a lengthy period of time, and till
their report in m vie no further action
will be taken nt Washington. So in the
great rush of events the attention of
people will be turned to other themes,
And the issue raised by the promulgat
ing of the. Monroe doctrine will for a
while, at least, be allowed to slumber
In the meantime some of the lessons
which the late flurry of impending war
excitement has taught, should not be
overlooked. The country has shown it
is not lacking in that quality of patriot
ism which id so necessary to continued
prosperous existence. From all over
tho land came hearty offers of men to
wage the country's battle?, and within a
abort time an army could have been
raised the counterpart, in numbers, of
Xeixes" host. ,
Another fact which has been painfully
impresed upon observing people is the
critical condition of our means of offense
and defense. Since President Cleve
land's message was announced attention
has been ptrougly attracted to the inili
tary conditions attending this country
in the event of a foreign war. The con
' census of opinion is that our condition 19
lamentably weak, and 1.0 time should
be lost in rectifying the errors which
our legislators have committed' in allow
ing our sea coast defenses to fall into
the deplorable state in which they are,
and in not raising our army and navy to
a point of greater usefulness in conflict.
Among the many who have studied this
matter, none have done so more care
fully than Colonel Jackson, of the regu
lar army, now stationed in Portland
In a recent address Colonel Jackson
"Patriotism of itself will not save the
republic; coupled with it must bo
power. Weakness for defense or offense
, is another, and perhaps tho greatest
menace to the permanence of the re-
"Among the 'great military powers
rank and consideration are accorded in
proportion to the ability of a nation to
defend itself, or its interests, and to in
' flict injury in theee respects upon other
nations. It does not need much research
in ancient or modern history to know
that weak governments have received
but little consideration and short shift
when their interests or existence ran
counter to those of strong military
p iwers. Cir.-fent history, with which
you are all familiar, shows as that the
'world is no better in this respect today
than in the past.
"At the close of the civil war this
country was rated as one of the most
. powerful of nations. Nothing but our
great war strength and willingness to
use it induced the British government
to consent to arbitration in the Alabama
claims, and when we declared that the
M jnroe doctrine would be enforced, and
' sent 70,000 veterans to the Texas fron
tier, France took the hint and retired
from Mexico. Does any one suppose
that within ten years of the close of the
civil war Great Britain would have neg
lected our repeatedly expressed wish to
have the Venezuela boundary question
submitted to arbitration, or have per
sisted in the seizure of territory in a
friendly republic, or in the extension of
the boundaries of British Columbia in
"The nation that would survive in a
wor!d where forcj is law, must itself be
the most forceful, and there is ho dis
guising the fact that wo are dangerously
weak as compared with ether nations;
- neither is there any doubt that tho great
military powers will not hesitate to take
advantage of any weakness of ours to
hamper our progress and despoil our
commerce to their own advantage; that
also is a part of . the struggle for exist-
enee, and to hold our own in the battle
for national life and prosperity we should
at all times be sufficiently strong, not
only to prevent encroachments upon the
soil of American continents to our dis
advantage, but to promote and defend
measures necessary to the success of Our
trade relations with other countries."
' These words of Colonel Jackson should
be heeded. They express a truth which
however unpleasant, is no lees vita). It
would be good for the country if
the majority, of men in congress were
like Colonel Jackson, who can tee the
need of the country and would not hesi
tate- at applying the remedy. . If the
United StaUs is going to stay in the
front rank of nations it must possess the
neceesary requi sites.
England will bo glad of the intermis
sion afforded by the inquiry of the Ven
ezuelan commission. She has her
hands full just at present in South
Africa, where an English company is
trying to conquer a free state. - The
cheering news comes today that the in
vading force sent by the British South
Africa company, was defeated by the
Boers and forced to surrender. Al
though the home government disclaims
any responsibility for the invasion, the
occurrence will not make Germany or
any other European nation who has in
terests in Africa, feel more kindly tow
ards the bullying country of Great Bri
tain. England is just at present out of
joint with the rest of the world, and
must stand having tho worst construc
tions put upon her motive?.
Oregon is beginning to receive atten

Science is " knowing how.'
The only secret , about
Scott's Emulsion is years
of science. When made in
large quantities and by im
proving methods, an emul
sion must be more perfect
than when made in the .old
time way with mortar and
pestle a few ounces at
time. This is why Scott's
limulsion of cod-liver oil
never separates, keeps
sweet for years, and why
every spoonful is equal to
every other spoonful. An
even product throughout.
In other emulsions you are liable to get
an uneven benefit either an over or
under dose. Get Scott'. Qcnuine has
