Order toot or readers may be
apprised of the true sentiments of
ha old bloody shirt war howling
expansionist of tha prsent time.

even though his heart
Lai bored them. Certain It is (hat
there are bat lew men holding an
-appointment under Mr. McKinley
but what ' would hare better sease
than to fall, iato so' pediculous
oaitton as this "Dr. Loom is."
.And are are at -a loss to account!
for a aaotire that he could hare
" ' had is writing that letter. From
any etaad point ao other conclusion
can be dram other .than that Dr.
Loomis arrote it in order to bring
himself 'prominently before the
public in defense of Mr. McKinley's
war policy to whom he ia indebted
for toe appointment he Kulds.
.Possibly, the "Dr." wished to pa
rade hi civil war record. At any
rata yoa observe that ha opens hts

. He doct'at aay what kind of com

, carried him to the front' where
t tbero waa fighting to be done
t that hi official duties pertained
v omoro to those of a hoc pital ftew
ji.ajed than to that of an army ser-
freon. Bat we would by no means
t impeach Mr. Loom is' prowess, or
' courage.' How could we in the
- face of his published letter?
You see from fts tone that he go(
anad at Springfield 3ft years ago,
.' ewid that he ia mad yet hat he
hopes the "miserable dirty cowards
sua all dead." But yoa will notice
. that he, the Dr, goes after their
pr ay. m
Space of time or distance has no
effect on the doctor's atriotijnj,
ardor or bravery. Thirty-six years
hts not cooled his' anger, nor has
' 2000 miles intervening between
' htm end his enemy molified his
" opIrKof revenge.
Bot ws have not much more
... ; 0fo, tiaao or patience to waste on
,' IfrLsoaiis.' We will only repeat
that w; hope there are few men
like Mr Leomia left. We hope that
111 parties la ewery section -of or
loaWrj' will do what they can to
cultivate and ' encourage the "Era
-of fJood-fceliaf . that seems to
have oet la and which has made
wch rapid growth since Major Mo-
JClnfey ot the example by word
and deed by his speeches to con
federate and lances and . by pro
moting aaesi like Leo and Wheeler
to high aad responsible offices
Bit It avast bo coufeesed that
thore la a bm11 element of men in
the country whose daily avocation
consist ta drawing their pensions
and naontiag the bloody shirt who
will cease only with death ia keep
ing before the world the fact that
they like Mr Loom is were la the
"war for the Union." And it
doosol matter now, it seems 'as to
-what kind of warfare these an
tlqnatod "old veU" were in, Just so
. they war killing some "Johney,"
or "soothers sympathiser." Wo
saw four of this kind all to
flethor on the street corner a day or
. so since, and pausing them one of
thorn yelled out "We are four jay
hawkera,nono repealing"! am a jay
hawker and do not deny it."
It la needkrs to hope that people
, - -
ike these will ever ttai-c to tiilJ
war and rw their pensions as
lMig aa they live. They arrogate
to themselves the honor of saviiig
the country, and they will never
consent to help McKinley care for
the graves of the confodeiato dead.
They tf-ould rather denounce, them
wih lr Iioomis as "cowards" and
da'tardr, and carry that sentiment
t -ery living -American cilisen
today whether repullican( democrat
or populist who oppose the colonial
policy nl the administration.;
But for the benefit of our bloody
shirt rote, including Dr Loorais
and those jay hawkers into whose
hands these prevents may come, we
will re-publish an editorial from
the Daily Oregon ian of as far back
as July 26, 1S93, showing what it
thought about the civil war and
those who participated. -
It will be noticed that the Ore
goniau was some six years in ad
vance of McKinley in advocacy of
"bridging over tb bloody ehosm."
The Oregonian said in its issue
of July 6, 1893;. . , .
"CompUiass come from old sol
diers In all parte of tho country
that their pension have been
suspended. There is little patience
with these - complaint, -'"Isn't it
about time that "dirty nigger war"
waa forgotteu? Nobody now knows
for certain who was right anyhow,
or what side was the right side.
It seems to bo about time to sit
IdaKrn on the complaining old pen
Isjjlners, : and let the country have
You see the Oregonian which is
standard authority, says that the
war that Loomis and Yates ware
engaged in so xealously was a
dirty nigger war and should be
forgotten." And then adds this
signiScant sentence: "Nobody
knows for certain who was right
anyhow, or what sTde waa the right
The Oregonian never" uttered a
truer and bigger sentence than that.
r Concluding we here re-publish a
portion of an article which was
published in the Broad-Axe of
Juue 8, 1S95, in regard to this
same Dr Loomis,- which will give
more fully our estimate of him:
"This individual by dint of cheek
and thejreport that he had held
some kind of federal appointment
under Harrison,. which office was s
sinecure oftJ.0-rer day, a year or
so back, appearing in Eugene, wa-
recti reu mu respeciaoie socteiy.
Especially (did the republicans at
once' take j him up, and through
their influence he was selected to
deliver the 4th of July address last
year. Ana subsequently from time
to time, A rough his importunate
egotism - nd - self conceit ho has
been brought forward to perform
some small office, such astnaking
reception' speeches to important
personages visiting our city' from
ab.-oad. This seemed' to give the
fellow encouragement until he
really began to imagine he was a
grett orator and a politician, unit!
finally at tho republican speaking
Saturday night be got an oppor
tunity to show to a demonstration
that he was simply a despicable
blackguard, not entitled to the
notice of any respectable person.
We certainly think any man who
would stand op before sn audience
of ladies and geLtlemen, such as
Loomis stood before on Saturday
night and ose the language he did
in wholesale personal abuse of the
people composing tha people's
party language not fit to be beard
by aay bat, the beerahop bruiser
cextily forfeits any claim to rec
ognition as a gentlemsn, and we
are glad ferknow every fair minded
person who heard him condemns
Col Yon. a ExpaiuIo.
Lieutenant Col. Yoran in a re
cent communication published in
the Oregonian says the Filipino
Islands are wonderfully rich, and
is worth having; but intimates
that it by no means will bo an
easy job to reduce the country from
its present status to a properly
"civilised Amei iran colony."
' There's the trouble. . Has Uncle
Sam left the Western continent
in search of rich and desirable
spots of earth fn tho Eastern
hemisphere, to capture it from its'
people, under pretense of purchase
from some European' monarchy 1
And if so, where's tho sense, or
justice of each proceeding, and
where will it end? .
A Cuban revolt. The Cuban
army is incensed against, Gen.
Brooks. The situation becomes
alarming,- is the latest news from
liiipurialUtu Demount ratrd.
"The PrvaiJent at Hot Springs"
is the title of a paragraph printed
on the outside of this paper which
the ltroad Axe thinks deserves
more than a paaing notice, at this
time when, imperialism and anti
republican ideaa are Upcoming so
prevalent. The stiff, strides our
president and other high offlclaia
are making in departing from the
old land marks of a simple democ-
: ' ..
down to Lincoln are much to v
regreiiea as snowing tnat we as a
people are fast tending to a con
dition, as a nation, which fostered,
will soon have undermined and
detroyed the spirit, if not the forni
of free government. One factor
more than anything elr, which is
producing this slate of affairs is
seen in a certain element, of the
newspapers of the day, which make
it a specialty to bask in the shadow
of high oftieinMoir, and like
hired lackeys, detail to the world
every movement of those U deairef
And it is to be regretted that
frail humanity is as a genafal rule
susceptible to flattery. And so far
aa our observation has gone we
think President McKinley has . the
buuipof self-esteem more largely
developed than was possessed by
any of hik predecessors. ,
Reading carefully the account of
the president's visit to the not
Springs of Virginia and one must
feel humiliated and disgusted aa a
free cititen of the land of Washing
ton, Jefferson, Jackson. Lincoln.
Look at it-'. "During the mornicg
he once strolled through the cor
ridors to the hotel JofficA. After a
nap and luncheon he .enjoyed a
social chat with Secretary Gage.
A few minutes were given (a
gracious condescension) to Senator
Fairbanks. A few minutes were
given to Secretary Cortelyou etc
and later put on a short sack coat
and a Derby ht tall ought to
wear short sack coats and Derby
hats now) he started for a walk
with Secretary Gage on his right,
and Senator Fairbanks on his left,
and as they went along, his strides
were long, his disposition jovial"
etc, etc. . , . t
The Car of Russia or Queen
Victoria were ieer noticed in so
fulsome terms Jf Toadyism, ard no
potentate ever seemed to enjoy
more too praise of a paid syco
phant. - McKinley may be consid
ered an emperor by the natives of
our colonial possessions, but we
insist that he be only president in
these United States.

ImJ me to believe that the study
of nature is the true and only way
to commune with and to worship
God. He "glows in tho stars,
blossoms in the tries," blushes in
the rosebud, sparkles in the dew
drop, flashes in the lightening,
peals in the thunder, - murmurs iu
the brooklet, sigh in the sephyr,
roars in the cataract, tints the ruin
bow and enchants the silent glen
with all theso tokcrtl of his handi

should we look to graceless lealots

a trip recently to the coast 1 stood
on the promdlHory near Crescent
City, the burial place of the victims
of the illfated steamship Brother
Jonathan, and pensively, gated out
on that boundless ocean swelling
in alii majesty and power, and
thoughts of friends and loved ones
on the opposite shore ten thousand
miles away fighting to defvud their
country's flag, I was painlully re
minded of the iui potency of man as
compared to the elements. All
inordinate and selfish desires died
within me aa I thought of that
fatal day in July 31 year ago,
when 221 human beings were cast
upon thTmerciless waves to perish
and sink down to fathomless depths
to rest on mossy beds of coral and
become the food of devouring
worms and fishes.
