Senor. Canovas, the gieat Spanish
secretary, talks in an extremely
"boisterous manner, about thrashing
the United States whenever the
handful of Cubans whale Weyler.
The last dispatches show that "Wey
ler must have been worse whipped
than usual, since Cpnovas is extraor
dinarily angry. He blames the
United States for the whole war, and
says "if Spain loses Cuba the United
States will have to pay every cent it
Is worth." It does not seem to
strike Canovas that the 70,000,000
people in this country are not going
to get badly frightened at a threat
of war with a government that can
not subdue a few thousand of -its
With 1 60,000 troops in the field
gainst possibly 15,000 and a whal
ing the. result of every conflict, the
calculation as to what Spain would
do with this country becomes a ques
tion of mathematics of microscopical
importance. If this government did
not patrol the ocean in the interest
of Spain, she would have lost Cuba
long ago, and it is not becoming in
Canovas to be making threats against
us. If Spain ever attacks Uncle
Sam and he finds it out, the old man
will be mad sure.
The La Grande people are making
a vigorous and determined effort to
have a beet sugar factory started in
their town. The Commercial Club
that hr.s the matter in charge, seems
hopeful of securing the subsidy re
quired, and in a recent report
showed that good progress had been
made toward the desired end. It is
to be hoped ,our energetic neighbors
may accomplish the good work, and
show the people of E istern Oregon
that wheat, cattle and wool are not
Its only possible productions. We
would like much to sample some La
Grande sugar, and hope we may

The senatorial election, to come
off next January, is troubling some
people considerably. Notwithstand
ing Senator Mitchell's speech at the
Hirsch banquet, there are those who
still insist on -the senator outlining his
position on the silver question. We
do not even pre tend'" to guess whom
the legislature will elect, but it
strikes us that Senator Mitchell's
position was sufficiently outlined in
the recent campaign that any one
might understand it. Mitchell is a
bimetalist. but not without it being
made an international matter.
The scientists are daily discover
ing 6ome new microbe, bacteria or
pe6t of some kind. The latest noted
is that of Mr. G. W. Shaw, of the
Oregon experiment station, of a but
ter fungus. . The butter turns blue
or black, and is affected with a regu
lar butter mold (no joke). Mr.
Shaw is confident he has discovered
a new and genuine butter disease, and
that the mold on the samples exam,
ined was not due to age or inanition.
It would be nothing short of a na
tional calamity if butter is to acquire
any more drawbacks than it has. .
We are not disposed to find fault,
but it does seem strange that the
locks cannot be operated on a legal
holiday. It takes but ten or fifteen
minutes at most to pass a boat
through, and as there are only two
boats to pass daily, it should not be
considered an extravagant demand
to ask that now the river is open it
