W ILL RE PAINT DEPOT.
Bridge and Building Superinten
dent N. Rose o f Portland informed
Agent Powers this week that the
depot would be re-painted on the
inside and out in the near future.
The exact time when the work
will commence is not known as the
stock o f paint was burned up in
the warehouse at San Francisco
and a new stock will have to be
supplied before the work com
mences. The signal switch l»oard
has been re-painted.
WOULD BURN KEROSENE
An exchange says that an Ohio
man thinks that he has invented
a carburetor that will burn kero
sene instead o f gasolene. It is
possible that it might jar the Ohio
gentleman to learn that the ordi
nary gasolene engine will burn
kerosene without any extra frills.
To burn kerosene in a gasolene
engine has been practiced for
It is a little harder to
start when the engine is cold and
it is'a good plan to squirt a shot
or two o f gasolene into the intake
to warm the engine and start the
vajpir. Some who have used it
claim there is more energy in a
gallon o f kerosene than a gallon
o f gasolene. One thing is certain,
there is more stink.
A GREATER WAR TO PRESENT CON
To the Editor:
"A n d the nations were angry.”
ThiB wonderful prediction o f the pro
phecy o f Revelation is made under
the sounding o f the seventh angel.
Concerning the time, we learn that
when the seventh angel begins to
sound, or early in the sounding o f
the seventh angel, that the mystery
o f God— that ¡ b , the work o f the gos
pel, "Christ in you, the hope o f
g lo r y —should be finished, as He hath
declared to His servants the pro
phets.” Rev. 10:5-7: 11:15-19.
The anger'of the nations is coupled,
in the prophecy, with the wrath o f
God, which is the prelude to the
judgm ent o f the world. It comes in
connection with the judging o f the
dead, the reward o f the righteous,
and the destruction o f the wicked.
There can be no doubt at all that
the prediction o f the prophecy ia to
day in process o f fulfillment. The
nations are angry; and since 1844,
when the seventh angel began its
sounding, and more particularly
since 1848, one o f the plainest truths
o f the day has been that the temper
o f the nations was one o f anger.
Their attitude has constantly exem
plified it. During ail this time, the
rulers o f the great nations have had
to put forth strong effort, have been
compelled to use extrem e caution, in
order to avoid a universal war.
A t the same time, we must remem
ber that the prophecy concerning
Turkey indicates its waning, partic
ularly from the time o f the prophecy;
that is, from August 11, 1840, after
which time the Turkish government
would exist only by the sufferance o f
the European powers. That was the
date specified in the prophecy; and
true to the prediction upon that day,
August 11, 1840, the powers notified
the Turkish Sultan that they would
henceforth attend to his cuse
without any question about it, from
that day till the present war, they
have been attending to his case.
W ere it not for an agreement among
the powers, the Turkish government
would have vanished long ago
Thus the nations have attempted
artificially to prevent war; but to
day they are in conflict, and more
thun ever we realize the truth o f
that prediction o f the prophecy
which describes accurately their
state o f wrath. They have seemed
to realize that thiH spirit o f wrath, if
once let loose, would carry them ut
terly beyond themselves. Realizing
it. and stating it to the world, they
have tried to make Turkey a buffer
state, as it were, to hold them from
each other’ s throat. Or as some one
has put it, Turkey is the bone, and
each o f the nations, while watching
the bone, has not dared to seize it,
for fear o f bringing the others on
him in a great dogs’ light, so to
speak, fo r the possession o f the Mo
This bone o f contention, the terri
tory o f the Turk, has been described
as a section that "m ig h t and ought
to be one o f the most flourishing on
the face o f the earth.” Almost
every nation o f Europe involved in
the present conflict is deeply inter
ested in who shall ponses this terri
tory. No one nation can gHin con
trol o f it without tremendously a f
fecting the others. There are Eng
land’s possessions in Egypt and India.
There are the possessions o f France
and o f Italy in the N ear Hast. Russ
ia is almost dependent fo r her very
life upon the free passage o f the
Dardanelles: Austria and Germany,

through the Balkans and Turkey
into the rich Mesopotamian valley.
Greece is deeply anxious about it,
because she lies so close to Constan
tinople and environs. Italy has no
good harbors, and looks across the
sea to Albania and the well sheltered
places o f that coast as a security for
her navies and her ships o f com
Thepresont w ar is an ineffectual
effort to straighten out the Eastern
question, which has been precipitat
ed upon the nations before they de
From studies o f the prophecies, I
do not believe that the present war
will solve the problem. Some sort
o f temporary arrangement will be
made, giving a short period o f peace,
in which God’s work in the earth
will be finished. Then will come
another war. known in the prophe
cies as Armageddon; and after that,
the end o f the world.
But Armageddon is located in Pal
estine, within the territory o f the
Turk. So that war. too, will be an
attempt at the solving o f the Eas
tern question. And it will be the
last attempt the nations o f the earth
will ever make; fo r Armageddon
ends the struggle o f the nations,
and makes the ushering in o f the
kingdom o f Christ, with the de
struction o f all those things which
are foreign to the righteouness and
peace o f Him whose right it is to
rule the world.
The nations are angry. Soon God’s
wrath will come, and the Judgment
day, even as the prophecy o f Revela
tion Xl-18 clearly predicts.

You pay for rail transportation 3 billion
dollars a year, and 44 cents out of every

for the public, have no right to place this
burden on the cost of transportation to you
without a clear mandate from a public tri
