It is amazing Ui.t so old and
experienced a soldier as General
Miles should place himself in
such a predicament as must ex
pose him to just and prompt rep
rimand. It is matter for congratulation
that the army has a commander-in-chief
intelligent and courage
ojs enough to administer its dis
ciplinary regulations even though
the msjor general commanding
it be the offender.
General Miles has been a brave
soldier whose merit has been rec
ognized and amply rewarded. So
was Iiscom who fell at Tien
Tsin and Lawtou who feu in the
Philippines; so are Ludlow,
Wood, Green, Chaffee and
Young. Some of these, like
Miles are not West Pointers, but
are men who came up from the
ranks of volunteer regiments
through the most gallant and he
roic conduct in the campaigns of
the civil war, and subsequent
rugged service. For service and
murage and knowledge of the
art and science of war they are
not overshadowed by the greater
merit of General Miles.
It is altogether probable that
none of these would ever so heed
lessly expose himself to the
merited rebuke of a superior as
Miles has done. Had they done
so there can be little doubt the
Major General commanding the
army would have administered
it,, for he has ever been a stickler
for discipline. This makes his
own infraction the more difficult
There has been more than a
suspicion that Miles is inordi
nately vain and quite ambitious.
He is flattered by the aristocratic
society of the country. He is a
4 'society lion" in Washington
and New York. Mrs. Grundy
everywhere never tires of patting
him on the back, and chattering
in his laudation. 1 his answers
the question, "Upon what meat
doth this, our Ceasar feed that he
hath grown so great!" The flat
teries of society have quite spoiled
him. This incident, humiliating
as it must be to him, will do
him the kindly office of recalling
him to his official senses, and
may quiet a tongue too prone to
promiscuous wagging. ;
The people will appreciate the
stronff hand of the Commander-
Time to Act.
Levi Conner, a farmer near Dallas,
Polk county, was recently robbed of
000. He had deposited the money in
his barn, but the thief found it. Hold
cos and robberies in and about Salem
And Portland are of daily occurrence,
While officials are on the salary system
there is no incentive for them to look up
criminals and, in fact, the incentive is
the . other way, because the danger to
person and the expense in hunting crim
inals reduce the salary and consume
time. While officers received their pay
in fees there was a strong disposition to
arrest criminals and bring them to jus
tice. In those days unless they obtained
fee's their income was short. There is an
other danger under the salary system
that when the officers get fat salaries an
occasional one, and sometimes the police
officers of a whole town or county, be
come anxious to increase their pay over
the amount of their salary, and in order
to do so, it has been claimed that the
criminal, and robber and hold-up class
became on very familiar business terms
with the officials.
The Portland police and detective
forca have been'.kuown to catch a mur
derer when some woman forced the in
formation on them, but the robber or
hold-up class they seldom ever find time
to catch. It was said some days ago
that Portland- people could do anything
they undertook. This, however, referred
to the subscription of stock for the Lew is
and Clark celebration. Portland people
could perforin many other things as well.
Country people often wonder why Port
land's best class of citizens don't organize
to banish the robber, hold-up and
murder class from their community. If
people having the administration of
the laws will not attend to it, the well
meaning people by organization to ac
complish those results can readily do so
if they proceed on proper lines, Any
thing outside of law and order is to be
deprecated, and still there are times
when a community becomes so congested
that it is proper to bring about order at
all hazard, and get to the conditions of
law and orderas soon thereafter as pos
sible. There are -many people, who are
fearful of trusting themselves to go to
Portland except they are compelled to
go strictly oa business and this fear will
remain well grounded nntil Portland's
better class of people organize to bring
about order. The attractions of the
criminal class to Portland with little or
DO fear of being apprehended, permits
them to scatter turouguout tne state. Ha
nous is it necoming map oiner parts oi
ths state are becoming interested in the
Whatever disturbs the quietude of
Portland readies out in some measure to
other portions of the state. At tliis par
ticular time, interest in the affairs of
Portland must be more inteuse than at
former periods, because in the celebra
tion to come off at Portland in 1905
evpry citizen of Oregon will necessarily
have a just pride in the siu'tesi of that
enterprise, and in order to contribute to
its success nothing can ilo more than Or
the whole world to lie made to under
stand that the people or Portland control
the methods of quickly apprehending
and punishing the criminal classes who
destroy life, rob and plunder. It is nof
now too late, but it is yet time and very
necessa'y that Portland's good citizens
organize in the very strongest possible
way to stamp out the irregu.airties jind
dangers mentioned. Lare numbers of
people are not going to rush to any
place if they understand that robberies,
hold-ups and murders are committed
daily aud-without arousiug an indignant
public to prompt action and punishment
of the offenders.
Aent Thayer .was informed
that the steamer Modoc left Port
land vesterday morning with a
large barge jn tow. She is ex
pected to arrive this morning.
Everything that can possibly
aid in the work of raising the
Ruth will be brought along.
A diver's suit will be brought
up so that in case it is necessary
a diver can be sent down to in
vestigate the state of affairs un
derneath the Ruth and possibly
assist in placing chains beneath
her to be used in hoisting. It is
declared that when this large
scow arrives they will be able to
either raise her or pull her in two.
There has been much specula
tion in the minds of a ttreat
many as to what the Ruth cost.
A party of men were guessing at
her cost a few days ago. There
was a wide difference in the
'landsmen's" guesses. They
ranged from $3,000 to $110. 000
It is a matter 01 truth that those
who proved to be widest of the
fact regarding the cost ot the
boat were the most positive that
they were right. The Ruth
cost $24.. 100. She was v fitted
with the very best machinery
for a boat of her discri tion
Her boilers had stood a cold
water test of 450 pounds press
ure. She was a splendid boat in
many wavs and was a favorite
along the river. It is sincerely
hoped that she can be saved.
