The Conquered Territory Will Remain
Under Military Rule Commission
to Be Appointed Within Ten Days.
Washington, Aog. 13. It is probable
thut conquered stations like Porto Rico
and Manila will remain under military
government until congress can act. It
is believed the military commissions
will be appointed within ten dayp, and
will make such recommendations to the
president. In fact, it is pointed out
that little else can be done, for Porto
Rico and Manila officially should be
governed at present by the war depart
ment and a military commander. As
to Cuba, it is likely eo far as the UniUd
States authority is extended, it will be
governed by the secretary of war and of
ficers in Cuba under bis direction.
The energies of the war department
are being directed toward making the
soldiers in the field and in different
camps as comfortable as possible.
General Merriam Will Send Such Troops
As Are Intended for Manila to
That Place.
San Francisco, Aug. 14. General
Merriam in referring to the disposition
of the troops says:
"I shall make no change in the present
arrangements unless ordered by the
authorities at Washington. Every man
of the expeditionary forces will be Bent
to Manila if I am permitted to send
them. I cannot say whether the jour
neying of the troops to the island would
be construed as an infraction of the pro
tocol. With peace an assured fact, the
troops would be merely guards to pre
serve order. Still I look for orders from
Washington settling the matter one way
or the other.

Washington, Aug. 13. A dispatch
notified Secretary Allen that a naval force
sent by Admiral Sampson had appeared
in the harbor of Manzanillo and de
manded the surrender. The command
ant of the city declined to comply with
the demand an an engagement took

yictorously for the Americans.
In view of the signing of the protocol
and the suspension of hostilities, every
effort was made by the authorities to

eral Shaffer to get into communication
with Manzanillo as soon as possible, and
inform the naval commander there that
hostilities were oyer.
A dispatch was also sent by the navy

Absolutely Pure
Tomatoes Mot a Disease-Breeder.
1'eopie were wont to enijy eating a
bunch of good grapes until of late years
when the fear of swallowing some of the
seeds and causing that dreaded disease,
appendecitis, has taken away the pleas
ure. The same thing applies to toma
toes, and now when one eees a dish of
sliced tomatoes by his plate at the table,
the fear of cancer immediately takes
possession of bim and causes bim to
leave them untouched. The following
from Dr. Andrew Wilson, of London,
should dispel this dread : "I have re
ceived eeveral letters of late, reiterating
a question I might well be' tired of an
swering: Do tomatoes cause cancer?
But for the fact that one takes a .pleas
ure In stamping one's foot on a mislead
ing statement calculated to prejudice
people against a vegetable food which is
entirely healthful and eafe, I ehonld
grow weary of asserting that not a jot or
tittle of proof has ever been offered' in
support of the outrageous statement
noted above. One might as well allege
that cabbage causes cancer, for there
would be no more proof to be had con
cerning the tomato myth. I can only
repeat that the tomatce is an excellent
vegetable enough and may be partaken
of by those with whom it agrees, with
out any fear of its initiating any disease
Notice to Delinquent Taxpayers.
The delinqent taxes of Wasco county,
as shown on th6 rolls now in the bands
of the sheriff are $60,000, an amount al
most equal to the indebtedness of the
county. Every citizen will doubtless
admit that this state of affairs should
not exist, and that all taxes should be
collected. On account of hard times
in the past the county court Las shown
leniency to taxpayers, but that leniency
has reached the limit, and the court
cannot wait longer on delinquents to
make settlements. For this reason a
warrant has been attached ' to each de
linquent roll commanding the sheriff to
collect all taxes by seizure and sale of
property. With a bountiful crop now
in sight, there can no longer be any rea
sonable excuse for the non-payment of
taxes. The sheriff is bound by oath to
comply with the terms of the .warrants
attached to the tax rolls for the collec
tion thereof, and has no option in the
matter. Delinquent taxpayers can save
the cost of eeizure and sale . of property
by settling their taxes at once.

Deafness is eaused by an inflamed con

unless the inflammation can betaken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for-,
