VOL. XI THE DALLES, OREGON, SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST 14, 1898. NO 130 HOW IT WILL BE GOVERNED 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. DISPOSITION OF THE TROOPS 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.

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 whatever." 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. Robert Kebi.y, Sheriff and Tax Collector for Wasco County. Dated, August 4, 1898.

When this tube is in flamed you have a rumbling sound or im per feet hearing, and when it is en tirely dosed. Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can betaken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed for-, ever; nine cases out of ten are caused, by catarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous sur faces.
