THE SAMOAN TRAGEDY.
The tragic affair at Samoa will
draw closer the bond of friendship
between the United States and Eng
land, says the Review. Forces
wearing the uniforms of the two
nations have been under fire together..
British valor and American courage
have faced a savage foe. Son? of
the two countries have fallen to
gelber, and there is grief ia England
and grief in the United Stales.
Lamentably, this unhappy event
may strain the relations between
England and the United States on
one bend, and Germany upon the
other. But that it will lead . to war
is a possibility too remote and shock
ing for serious consideration. It can
not be believed that the British gov
ernment will approve the reckless
course of its hot-headed consul, or
seek tOtCondone the wanton conduct
of Germans who are reported to
have incited Mataafa's savage war
riors to attack the forces of the
United States and EDgland.
. In the light of recent events in
the Samoan islands, the wisdom of
efforts to continue the tripartite pro
tectorate will be questioned. The
feeling between the Germans and
the British and Americans in the
islands has become too bitter for
The situation requires cool con

OUR PHILIPPINE POLICY.
There is certainly no exploitation
of the islands tor our own selfish
benefit. There is no attempt at
Americanizing the natives against
their wil.'. They are to remain Fil
ipinos, with their native creeds and
customs, so far as they desire to
retain the latter' in preference to
others of which they may learn. The
Catholic may remain Catholic, and
the Mahometan may remain Mahom
etan. There will be piotection for
each, but no compulsion for either.
And so the wild forebodings of the
Tagal rebels and of their handful of
sympathizers here are pilloried as
sheer fancies, if not malicious in
ventions. The policy which has been
so successful in the native states of
the Malay peninsula and in the vast
East Indian empire of the Nether
lands is substantially to be applied
to our postessions in that quarter.
To say that it . will not there meet
with equal success would be to say
that the Filipinos are harder to deal
with than the Malaccans and Su ma
trans, or that Americans are inferior
in governing capacity to the English
and the Dutch. To neither of those
propositions are the American people
at present inclined to give assent.
Governor Merriam, in his capacity
as director of the census, expresses
himself plainly -In regard r to the
pal icy he intends to pursue in the
appointment of bis subordinates, says
the Oregonian. Candidates will be
examined - and be will endeavor to
put competent persons in the places'
but civil service rules will not apply
to these positions. - "It will be a
matter of influence, more or less,"
he says, and adds that practically
those candidates having passed ex
amination "who can bring the most
influence to bear will receive the
appointments." This statement is
conspicuous for its candor so much
so that it cannot be misunderstood.
The declaration should serve a good
purpose in dismissing to other pur
suits a multitude who would other
wise waste time and nervous energy
in hanging round waiting for a job
in census taking. While the policy
bints broadly at political favoritism,
saying boldly in effect, "No Demo
crat or Populist need apply," it is
something to learn we ate dealing
with a man who does not propose to
be a hypocrite. .

There is only one way to cure deafnesp
and that is by constitutional remedies
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition the mucous lining; of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it Is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be deetroyed for
ever; nine cas?8 out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing bat an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. . -
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
