Ths war between Russia and
Japan is now repented to be a
thing of the past a mere mat
ter of history. The plenipoten
tiary's from both countries
reached an agreement satisfac
tory to both governments at
Portsmouth, N. H., last Tues
Peports have it that men j
threw their hats in the air and
women wept on the announce
ment of the hews. Be this as it
may, if such were the case, we
wonder why they acted in this
manner. ' So far as we observed
the intelligence of a satisfactory
termination of the peace nego-icity
tiations did not cause a . tear in
Corvallis and we are about as
near the seat of war as were the
good people of Portsmouth.
Beyond doubt it is right that
the war should end; it is humane
to consider the sacrifice of life
that a war entails; another
thing to consider is property that
is lost and country devastated;
many families resident in the
war belt are caught as by the
tail of a cyclone and hurled to
destruction or direct poverty,
TWc 0.0 n rW fnlW
a declaration of war so truly as
night follows day, and a cessa
tion of hostilities means, in the
present instance, a cessation of
all these awful conditions.
Japan is thought by many to
have got worsted in including
the terms. If Japan is satisfied t
the matter is settled she is the
judge The general theory ad
vaneed is that Japan was out
generalled in the peace negotia
tions because she failed to se
cure an indemnity. Not so. It
may be possible thac the Mikado
never expected nor hoped for an
indemnity, but knowing well the
temper of the Russians, stuck for
what was almost on the face of
it an impossible thing.
By such an act Japan may
have reasoned " she would be
enabled to finally conclude peace
terms on a basis acceptable to
herself. 'If such were in truth
the case then the Japanese, not
the Russians, are the shrewder
' As for the Sahahlin island, it
matters little. Japan will un
doubtedly do with it ' about as
she pleases henceforth. It is too
near Japan's base for her to
worry over what Russia may or
may' not do on the island in the
future. Japan has trounced
Russia as she never was before
and possibly, probably, never
will be again.
' There are many reasons for
" Japan's splendid victory. First
. of all, Russia made a woeful un
derestimate of her adverary's
fighting ability this really was
the secret of . it all. Another
thing which conspired to Russia's
defeat was the ' disaffection of
her own subjects. That she was
fighting too far irom her '' base
of supplies, both of men and the
- materials of war, is another fac
tor in . her defeat. Her men
were, 'disloyal and her officers
corrupt and dissipated. Cdm-j
pared vith all these features,
J apan was fortunate in her po
sition, the loyality of her soldiers
and. citizens at home, and she
was likewise strengthened by
the knowledge that she possessed
the moral support of the major-
ity oi mansma.
Russia will not (should not)
Soon forget the lesson she has
been taught. May she profit by
. it. ; On the other hand it is to be
" hoped, that ' Japan will continue,
to merit the evidence and es
teem of the world by continuing
. along paths 'that, have se
" cured her naught ,but admiration.

FIRST SHOT FIRED.
Since local option went into
effect January ist, last, many
ihave watched its workings with
Clubs were organized
and maintained at several points
in Oregon under the state law.
One of these existed in Lebanon
and, as stated in the: last
issue of the Gazette, the place
was raided recently by Linn
county authorities. Regarding
the matter the Albany Herald of
Wednesday has the following:
" The prosecutions under the
local ootion law have commenc
ed. Yesterday afternoon Gale
S. Hill, deputy "district attorney
Ior 1nn c unty, nied a com-
i..'t : i-.i t-. TTT
piaini in justice 01 me reace w.
S. Risley's court, charging
Andrew Jennings, of Lebanon,
with a violation of the local
option law by selling a glass of
beer to George Ray in the club
jxoms in Lebanon. Last even
ing Mr. Jennings came to this
and was nomisally plated
under arrest, and he will appear
in court todav and plead to the
Jennings, with his brother,
was formerly in the saloon busi
ness in Lebanon, and when the
precinct in which the saloon was
located went dry at the local
option election, and the city
council or Lebanon declined to
grant a license in the precinct in
which local option did not cany,
for the reason that it was the
residence district of the town,
the firm was temporarily out tf
lime ago JCI1
nings was cnargea witn selling
liquor in violation of the local
option law, and to this he at that
time pleaded guilty and was fin
ed. Since that time the Leban
on Social and Athletic Club was
organized, and the headquarters
of the organization are in the
buildinS formerly occupied by
the Jennings Brothers for
saloon. This was the place raid
ed test Saturday night by the
sheriff under a proceeding
brought for the purpose of secur
ing evidence of the - violation of
the law, and the case brought in
the justice camrt yesterday after
noon is the result,
The purpose is to test the local
option law and the legality o:
clubs, such as Lebanon had, to
operate in and supply its mem
bers with intoxicants, it being
held that the club organized m
Lebanon was but a subterfuge to
evade the local option law passed
by the people last fall.
.. Speaking of the matter last
evening Mr. Hill stated that this
was but one of a series of cases
that would be brought as the
result of the raid on the Lebanon
club and that violators of the
local option law, if they could
be proved to be violators, would
be prosecuted to the full extent
of the law. .
A ciut) similar to tne one in
Lebanon is running in Corvallis
and it is stated that the authori
ties in Benton county are eager
lv watching the outcome
of the case in Linn county
for if it is found that the
courts will uphold the officers i
their attempts to suppress such
clubs, steps will be taken lm
mediately to put a stoD to the
operations of the Corvallis club

To.all such here is the news that there

It was discovered forty years ago by
Dr. Pierce who searched A'ature's lahtrr

so liberally provided therein. He took
Lady's Slipper root, Black Cohosh root,
Unicorn root. Blue Cohosh root, Golden
Seal root, and by extracting, combining
and preserving, without the use of alco
hol, the glyceric extracts of these natural
remedies he has given to the world
Dr. Pierce's Favorite, Prescription,
which has to its credit the enviable and
unparalleled record of more than a half
million of cures in the last forty years.
