'The ground fairly smells sour!"
This is the report of the sick and
emaciated soldiers of this republic
who return invalided from Cuba
Centuries of filth have polluted the
very soil of the unfortunate island
All that in civilized countries is
buried deep in earth, or that is car
ried away by swift streams that oxy
genate and purify its noisomeness, or
that is burned to prevent its danger-
ous infection, is, and by generations
of unclean people has been, poured
on the surface of the earth of the
cities and towns of Cuba, which at
length are saturated by poisonous
germs. It is impossible to give in
stant and absolute control of Cuba to
a people who Lave not learned that
ablution is a word illustrative of the
first letter in the alphabet of civiliza
tion. A temporary protectorate is a
necessary preliminary to the evolu
tion of Cuba into a domain in which
decent folks can live. We have
fought that Cuba may be a member
of the sisterhood of civilized states;
we cannot turn it over at once from
Spanish filth and despotism to epi
demic and disorder.
In the oldest book that relates the
progress of a race from salvery and
degradation to freedom and eminence
we are taught that Mcses enforced
cleanliness upon the Jews as the first
law of being. The higher civiliza
tion of the tabernacle and the temple
followed fn.due course, and almost
halurally, upon the strict hygienic
regulations that the great law-giver
enfoiced upon his people while they
journe3rcd and dwelt iu tents in the
wilderness. A ballot is a good thing
in the hands of a clean man; not so
in the hands 'of a dirty child or an
unclean nomad. Cuba must be made
clean and healthful first, free and
independent afterward. "We have an
educational work to do pieliminary
to our noble work of establishing lo
We are not fighting in Cuba solely
for Cubans. We expect that the out
come of the war shall give to the
capital and enterprise of the United
States free room "to run and be
glorified." We must make Cuba at
least as healthful as Louisa na before
we relinquish our authority over the
territory from which we have driven
Spain, The Cubans must be educated
in the rudiments of civilization, near
to the first of which is personal,
household, and municipal cleanliness.
All naval officers and men who
have distinguished themselves during
the war with Spain will be rewarded
by the government in some manner
appropriate to tfieir individual ex
ploits. The president is determined
that not one deserving man, from
commanding officer down, shall be
neglected in the distribution of hon
ors. This is eminently proper, and
the navy will be all' the better for
every such act of consideration.
England has built up her navy by
making those who follow it proud of
their profession and by establishing
the practice of conferring honors up
on her heroes without regard to rank,
station or employment. One of the
decoraiions to which all fighting Eng.
lishmen aspire is the Victoria cross.
Those who wear it have in some way
distinguished themselves by heroism
that stands out in bo'd relief before
the nation. Were Hobson a British
officer the Victoria cross would fall
to him without a question. In this
country special medals are voted by
congress in recognition of such acts
of bravery as Hobson and hi com
panions have to their credit.
Annauias, No. 2, was recently a
visitor in Baker City, and called at
the Democrat oftice. We have al
ways held the proprietors of that pa
per in the highest regard, and are
surprised to learn that either Bro.
Small or Bowen entertains such vis
itors; but no doubt they have for
gotten that a person is known by th6
company he keeps. During that
gentleman's (i) call he informed the
editor that The Dalles is the dullest
town on earth. We wonder which
side of the street he was working.
Handouts have been scarce of late,
for there is so much business going
on and so much work to be obtained
that there is no necessity for any
idlers or beggars. The amount of
business being done in this city at
present, in spite of what is supposed
to bo a dull season of the year, would
make a Baker City man dizzy in the

Why do we retail more Cigars than
Wby do smokers fro ont of their way

Not because we have better cigars
or better brands, or any greater variety ;
no, not that.
Why, because we have the finest ci

in better condition.
