DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE RESIGNS.
London, June 22. The true story of the
determination of the Duke of Cambridge
to resign hts place us commander in
chief of the army, announced yesterday
by Itfhe eeorettairy of state for war, Mr.
CampteU-Barenerman, as exclusively ca
bled to the Associated Press yesterday,
throws new light upon the subject. There
has long been a skrong agitation against
the duke, and the government, It appears,
acting on the principle of expediency,
caused It to be known that It would ma.
teirlally assist the government if Ithe duke
would offer to resign. Consequently the
Duke, not suspecting that his offer would
be accepted, sent in his paper's to tfhie
Queen, and the latter handed them to
the government under the Impression
that they would be returned. The gov
ernment, however, accepted tihe papers
as a definite resignation and Mr. Camp
bell -Banner man made tihe announcement
to the house wfhlch wta the lost thing
expected or desired e-lther by the Queeu
or toy the Duke of Caintoridge.
AMERICAN BHIPS HONORED.
Berlin, June 22. During the fetes a
corps of picked detective officials sur
rounded the emperor day and night.
These precautions were taken because
of the fact that threatening leuters from
anonymous anarifhWt and others reach

right. Some of these letters came from
France and the letters threatened the
emperor with dealth. ' A score or more of
suspicious looking persons were arrested
by the detectives. ,
The naval correspondents of the Ger
man and Austrian newspapers have high
ly commended the appearance of the
Untied States war veasel and crews.
They praised the case of motion and ex
actness of their maneuvers, according

INCEST AND MURDER.
Eugene, Or., June 22. H. P. Hayis, of
the Fall Creek precinct.' this county,
was arrested at the residence of his
sister, Mrs. Buttricks, two moes from
Junction City, today, and now tangulshea
in the county Jail here, wtfeh a Charge of
incest against Mm. He may also be
coital noon to answer the charge ot
murder before She case is setatled. Hayes
is a schooljteacher, and he has a niece,
Miss Susan Walkwr, who Is also a school
teadher. Miss Walker laat night gnre
tCrfb to ft child, and charges Hayes with
blng her betrayer. She went to bsr
mother two weeks ago and made a con'
feselon' as to her condition. About the
first of May, the father of Miss Walker
had an tnrtimattlon. of the condition of
his daughter, and one day told Hay-:'
that If his suspicions materialized he
would Wll the guilty iman. On the lata
of May, Walker was taken suddenly and
violently ill, and was taken to his house,
where he soon died in great agony, hav
ing spasms end violent convulsions. Foh
some reason the case was not reported to
the coroner, and Walker's remains were
1 nit erred without any Inquest or posit mor
tem examination. This morning, when
Coroner Harris heard of the facta, h
went to tflie lace (or the purpose of
having the body exhumed, and an analy
sis of the contents of the stomach made.
People Mving in the neighborhood are
very much wrought up over the affair,
and Hayes is being held here and will not
be taken before Justice CulUson for ex
amination until the excitement subsides.
Hayes seems to realize bis precarious
condition and expressed a wish' to put
himself out ot existence.

er at nearly $50,000. The reasons for the

AN ELOQUENT ADDRESS
State Superintendent Irwin's
Remarks Friday Night.
"THOUGHT" WAS HIS 1 HEME
His Ideas on Evolution and Gradual
Growth of Lower Organisms
. . of Nature.
The. following is tne speech ot State
Superintendent Irwin, delivered at the
high school commencement exercises on
Friday night, and which wis "rowded
cut of yesterday's Issue.
Mr. Irwin, who was introduced very
guaceifully by Professor: Wright, was
greeted with loud applause as he stepped
on tine piaitrorm. He said:
"Ladles and Gentlemen': There Is a
document dear to the heart of the aver
age American, which says, among other
things, "All men ure created equal and
are endowed wttfh certain . inalienable
rights, among whldh ere life, liberty, and
tne pursuit ot happiness. It seems . to
me that In 'that bill of rights there is
a remarkable recognition of the ability
or mankind. And l turn to another docu
meat, as d'.ur and as hlghfty prized, and
read, "God said let us make man in our
own Image and let him have dominion
When I bring those two things together,
tjje one from our Declaration of Independ
ence, the other from the Bible, It seems
to me that I am able to find out some
thing of what life is, und wlhut man is,
too. He lis itfhe Image of God, friends,
and th's dominant power In this world,
We cannot fathom the doptths of life and
character, lor in .their grand expansion
tiney are beyond human tindorstandnia,
The dominion of man is not found in
his physical ulbllity. The horse you drive
Is stronger than you are. But the
dominion exists and exerts its power in
niis maid. We are told somewhere that
kmowledge la power," but I do not be
lleve that that is so. Thought Is power,
and knowledge may exist tin the mind
In a dormant condition, with no power
behflpdt It. Go out Into the world and
you And tverywere the dominance . of
tftvought. Enter a tniochlne shop and

ting' everything. Nupoleont tihe world's
great military genius, utways fought hlj
batllea in his head, before he give fight
on lio open pColn. Knowing something
ot tlhe field on wh1cfa the carnage wus to
rage, he would sJt at night In his tent
with a map before him and while all
around him eJtpt, there, with red pins
bo represent the British, blue pins t
represent the Prussians, and white pins
his own soldiers, he would fight the en
counter alone, moving baJBeol lions, mar
shalling columns, throwing one body ot
men on another and with eager mind
planning surprises and traps for tha
nv.rrow. Go and read the history of ere.
at Ion, I don't care whether you take
the divine or scientific side of it, for they
both march through the same highway.
You find that the great Creator brooded
over chaos, he gave it thought, and after
the five periods or days had elapsed,
when the birds were In the air, the moun
tains towering Do tho sky, the trees wav
ing In the wind, He made man, and gave
him dominion over uB the earth. That
dominion has come to iman by the same
process us gave God dominion over chaos.
He brooded over chaos and brought out
order, man broods over that order and is
every day bringing fortlh new results. I
don't brieve in evolution. I believe In
growth, I believe tlhla't by t'he power ot
something higher than tlhe undeveloped
material tihiut material is shaped and
fashioned und raised to higher life. God
put man on tlhls eantlh to develop It, while
He hlmsvlf develops all things. These
miaiinlftcerJt flowers in front of me had
Hhelr origin In some tJhapelaas ml stormed

earth. Mi in Hook Wold of them, gave them
Ms thought and care until today we have
the syntmetrloail thing of beauty that 1
see h:rs in such profusion tonight. Re
move your agencies from titiem, lot them
blow In your gardens unheeded, and they
will begin to go back stelodlly and surely
to iDhalr primitive sltate. Oregon is a land
of iblg red apples. We (boast of them to
our eastern friends. Ws exhibit them
at expositions and they win us fame and
aubstantlial rewards besides. They have
been developed by centuries of cultiva
tion and thljught. Turn them loose, and
Miey win tuist recede to their worthless
vtate that the thought of man has
brought Ohem out of. The world has
moved onward' and Improved Just us fast
as man has got hold of ft and lifted it
. "In the vast storehouse of the world
everything on which no thought has been
expended Is raw material). Once on a time
the lightning flashed over the heuvens,
terrorizing everybody, breeding supersti
tion, awe and fear. But Franklin thought,
and he brought the dread element down
through a kvte from the clouds and Im
prlnorrfd'ft In a glass battle. Morse
thought About It, he got hold ot it, he
svarted it spinning round tlhe earth, then
more thought encompassed it and today
that dreaded and powerful element has
been trained to light our houses, cook our
dinners, drive our cars and do our balk
ing. Conditions about us are1 only pow
erful by virtue of tihouglht. Th'e only true
wealth In the world Is ithe wealth of
thought. Here at rmy Wind Is this 'beau
tiful piano. Whers did it name from?

and shaped U; and Ithaugtit, the thought
of a genius, comhinitd the two results to
produce this ihlarmonlous whole. So It 'is
that tlhls piano, like everyuliing we see
around us is only valuable by rouson of
the weaQtJh of tlhtought itlhiait has be.jn
expended on SCs production. Jiwtt so far
as you can develop itfhougblt that for oun
you make the wtorld wealthier. God gave
us the materials, end we are taking them,
turning simples into compounds, harness
ing one to the other, and with our bat
talions ot science are storming the great
citadel of nature and winning, new tr
umphs every day we live. And now the
thought of man is branching away from
earth. It is looking for new worlds to
conquer; it lis reaching initio eternity. The

of tflvat tMn pale Milky Way.- -He Is di
viding It into stuns and planers and con

astonishes) our wondering eyes with the
results of his discoveries. It is thought,

higher and better things. -
"Then another phase. We are living to
day In a republic, a government by th
reople. There have been republics In
Ohe past, but they have crumbled to duet,
and why? They were founded on the
Band, founded on a basis of society or
caste, wthlle the body of the people were
slaves. I Armly believe that the exist
ence of our republic today hus been
brought about through tlhe providence ot
God. Did you ever stop to think why,
tor 6,000 yeans or more, this continent
was undisturbed and uninhabited? Ha
was keeping It .waiting, waiting, wait
ing for the f ul'lmess of time when a govern
ment like our own, founded on the rocks
of morality, educultlon and equality could
exist upon It. And when those pilgrims
of the Mlayflaiwer dedicated themselves fi
the cause of civil and religious liberty, oa
that (bare lonely rock the work was be.
gun. That work will only end with the
ending of the wtaCd. There is on the

hemmed in by great mountains. It txn
stood the conflict of centuries, and though
its enemies have 'been us the elands of tha

mean, wtluh sdhoolhousies and churches
dotting Its valleys, and Ithe belief In God
and humanity firmly imbed Jed in th
hearts of its people. Look at France, a-
great and mighty empire, but not yet a

For education ss still an unknown word
