Congressman Adamson of Geor­
gia attempted to find a back stair­
way of retreat, by declaring that
the plank in the Baltimore platform
in favor of discriminating in favor
of American ships was "slipped
over” on the platform committee.
This old-fashioned political sub­
terfuge was immediately strangled
by Senator Walsh ot Montana, who
pointed out that be and Secretary
'[ Bryan and Senator O’Gorman, as
well as other party leaders, knew
just what they were doing when
this plank was put into the plat­
form. The President maintains that
our policy discriminating against
foreign ships cannot be carried out
with honor in view of our treaty
arrangements with Great Britain.
The issbe appears likely to be sqare-
ly met, and it is a sure indication
of improved conditions since Demo­
cratic leaders refuse to hide behind
the bushes, but declare the question
will be settled iu the open arena of
debate in the Senate.

A
LODGE VERSUS NORRIS
From Senator Lodge of Massa
chusetls comes the admission that
"suffering and injury" have been
done to hundreds ot innocent peo­
ple in New England, as a result of
the breakdown of the New York,
New Haven and Hartford, and the
Boston and Maine Railroads, and
his opinion is that the Department
of Justice and not Congress should
be the instrument for lighting the
wrongs of investors and stock­
holders. The minions of juslict
have been riding exceedingly slow,
and though the public is assured by
Mr. Lodge and others that the new
President of the New Haven system,
Mr. Elliott, is a man ol “high char­
acter and honest purposes” yet but
recently these same things were
said about Mr.Mellenand the finau-
ceirs of the house of Morgan, who
milked almost dry one of the great­
est properties in America.
Men
like Senator Norris, who stand for
up to the miuute methods of right­
ing wrongs, has declared that a
thorough sifting of the New Haven
affair is within the province and
rightfully rests with Congress.
Norris does not agree with the
"waiting methods” of Mr. Lodge
but would "soak it to ’em."
PRIZE
COMPETITION.
of Miss Van Biber a plan to establish
the fundamentals of good road build­
ing in a new’ generation and at the
8ame time interest the present genera­
tion In the principles of drainage and
highway construction, which the chil­
dren learn at school. It has entered
into the plan with enthusiasm.
Miss Van Biber has Jurisdiction over
700 square miles, extending into Lin­
coln. Lane and Douglas counties. All
the year, by horseback, boat or on foot,
she travels over the rough mountain
highways and up along the small riv­
ers. She introduced manual training
In the Sluslaw schools, and exhibits of
handicraft, sew ing, carpentry and bead-
work from Florence took first prizes
at the county fair, ahead of the Eugene
and advanced Valley schools. She In­
stalled the Industrial w’ork and put it
under proper supervision. Rond build­
ing Is her next step.
Speaking of her plan, she said:
‘‘This is no scheme to work children
on the roads. They will care for only
100 yards, and not necessarily that
much. If the district road Is difficult
The road building Is not to be taught
by the teachers, because the average
teacher Is not qualified tQ teach road
building.
“We shall organize a good roads club
In each school. We shall give the
scholars credit for the hour or more a
week that they spend on the roads.
Those who undertake the road work,
which will he purely optional, will be
excused from studying the road chap­
ter in the agricultural manual The
whole plan Is to arouse Interest In
roads and give adequate instruction,
and the already overworked teacher*
will not be burdened with this addi­
tional work
“Of course all districts will not be
able to participate, because many
schools are built ou trails. They have
no roads on which to work. Possibly
these districts can compete for the
prize by laying out and actually build­
ing a piece of road past their school.”

Indian fighting is a thing of the pa t
now, but we must remember that It
was only about a generation ago that
General Custer aud his men were sur­
rounded and massacred by redskin >.
There is an old orduauce sergeant ».t
one of the Atlantic coast forts w!:o
was a youngster iu the ranks of ti e
regular army iu those days and past­
ed a g o o d many years on the plains,
where Indian fighting was the order
of the day. lie tells yarns about his
experiences, some of them bloodcurd­
ling, some simply amazing. Here is
one of tlie latter class:
The Apaches were the worst var­
mints one had to deal with, and we
were more afraid of them than any
other suvages.
They were m oil
treacherous, more merciless aud prac­
ticed more deceptive methods than
any other tribe with which I had tlie
honor to exchange shots. When we
were hunting them we were more sure
that they weren’t hunting us. Any
man going to a spring for water, drop­
ping out of the ranks to cool off or in
auy wise going off by himself was
liable to be taken in, and so noise­
lessly that the rest of the command
wouldn’t know anything about it un­
til he was missed and some one would
be sent hack to find him dead and
scalped.
One time when we w’ere after a
party of Apaches, not knowing when
they would turn on us in the middle
of the night, or. more likely, ju st be­
fore dawn, we made preparations that
would let us know of their coming
Our commander bad taken the precau­
tion to bring along some barbed wire
fencing, aud after getting into camp,
before turning in under our blankets,
we fenced ourselves in. Of course we
didu’t expect to keep off the red devils
with a wire fence, especially when we
weren't helping the latter with lead.
All we hoped for was a few’ moments’
delay, long enough, you know, to grab
our rifles aud get on our feet.
We bivouacked oue evening on a
hillside so situated that we couldn’t
very well be taken on the flank, and
instead of running the wire around us
we stretched It before us, so that any
force coming up the hill must pass
over it. Though the moon was in the
third quarter, the night, being cloudy,
was quite dark. The Apaches were so
sly that In order to get a warning of
their coming we hung all the tin plates,
tin cans—anything, in fact, that would
rattle—on the wire.
I was listening then for nil I was
worth for the slightest sound that
would indicate the presence of an en­
emy.
i had to take it out in listening,
for I couldn’t see anything unless it
was above the sky line. The moon
passed a thin space in the clouds Just
as 1 heard a tinkle away down at the
other end of the fence. Peering in
that direction I saw something white.
I didn’t wish to make a guy of myself
by firing at nothing, and I didn’t wish
to take any chances with Apaches
about. I heard another tinkle and saw
the white thing move. It seemed to
be on the outer side of the fence, but
in another moment it was on the In­
side. 1 had brought my rifle to my
shoulder at the first sound, and. seeing
that whatever it was had got in be­
hind the fence. I let drive.
I could hear a prolonged rattle of
accouterments as the line of sleeping
men arose, and their rifles sounded
like a modern machine gun. The field
officers went hurrying about, and the
company officers formed their meu.
In a few moments they were all stand­
ing in line ready for another volley,
but the second volley was never fired.
The clouds broke away from before
the moon so that we could see what
was going on before us, and we found
there was nothing going ou. No sign
of an Apache appeared.
The order was given to break ranks,
and within ten minutes the men were
dow’n on the ground again, most of
them snoring loudly enough to keep a
sentry from hearing any more tinkling
tin plates. I was relieved soon after
and joined the chorus.
The next morning our commander
called up the guard of the night before
and asked uiTwho had fired the warn­
ing shot and at what he had fired. I
confessed that I was the man and
had fired at something white down at
the other end of the wire fence.
“Something white!” he exclaimed
contemptuously. “Did you ever know
a redskin to wear anything white?
No Indian, no Apache certainly, would
wear anything that could be seen on a
dark night.”
I was dismissed with no other rep­
rimand than this, if it could be con­
sidered a reprimand, and went off to a
campfire where my men were cooking
breakfast.
“What were you men on guard fir­
ing at Inst night?’’ asked one of the
men.
•
“Apaches,” I said, putting on n bold
front. “The moment I fired they ske­
daddled down the hill under cover of
the darkness.”
“How could you see them in the
da rk ?’’
This stumped me. but further re­
mark was unnecessary since the mys­
tery was solved by Sergeant Connover.
“What he was firing at,” he said, “was
a boiled shirt of mine that I washed
after we bivouacked last night and
hung on the wire fence to dry. And
Just look at it.” he added, producing
the article; “It’s riddled!”
“Serve* you right.” said 1. “for hang­
ing your shirt on a menus of defense.”
