Wildly Enthusiastic
Letter from Austria
(North Bend Harbor)
The terrors of the war t from an
Austrian standpoint are told in a
lettei written bv 1 young man now
in Austiii to a relative in North
Bend. Little ha- been beard from
Austria direct tjy the people in this
country and it :« something of a
wonder that the letter to North
Bend ever managed to get through
the mails of Europe The name of
the writer and the North Bend rel­
ative who received the letter are
not given as the latter leared that
even giving the name ot the wtiter
might cause hint some trouble.
The strictest censorship is exercised.
The letter was written from Ver-
"bo.-ka, Dalmasca, which is in A us­
tria Hungary and as translated for
the Harbor is as follows:
“ We know nothing of what is
happening in the war.
No news­
papers can lie sent through the
mail and very lew letters ever reach
their destiny. All talk, even, ol
the war, is prohibited by law.
“ No one knew ol the war
until Sunday night when all of a
sudden the I el Is all over town be­
gan to toll the news.
"Then came the announcement
that within a tew hours all able
bodied men must be ready to go to
war. All were taken from the age
of 18 to 50 iLough many more
were taken both under and above
that age.Many young men had come
home from America to visit and
were takeu to the war.
"Th e next Monday afternoon
they had to march away.
“ These last few hours were worse
than the ’ Frisco tire.
All were
filled with the utmost terror. Some
lost sons, some lost their- sweet­
hearts. In some lamtlies four or
five had beet! taken.
“ As many lamiles had no one to
work iu the fields a law was passed
that everyoue must work, uot only
in your own fields but in those
whose folks could not work.
“ Food is very high, some things
being impossible to buy.”

William Hanlev is never foolish­

William Hanley cannot bear to
see any human being unhappy; he
knows that the way to human hap­

with the right returns; he knows
that every self-respecting man* and
woman wants to work out ftis own

but he does not believe in weight­

a load of titantic proportions. He
does not believe that this develops

William Hanley believes that if
every man and woman in Oregon
had n fair income for which fair
service is given, that crime and
drunkenness would automatically
vanish; he believes that POVERTY

The lr-e picture show and Re­
publican tally Saturday evening at
the Grand brought out a lull house,
and there was “ standing mom on­
ly” throughout the evening. Even
after the talkfest commenced the
people lingered to see wltai possible
reasons might bt «given why any
one in this part of Oregon should
vote for Hawley for congress. Judge
Sehlbrede took this difficult task,
and acquitted himself very credit­
ably, considering the material that
he had to yvork on His argument
seemed lo be that yvhile Mr. Hawley
had made no showing, he had been
hard at work all the time. He ex ­
cused Mr Hayvley's iailure to get
adequate appropriations for the har­
bors of this district on the ground
that there were a whole lot ot these
hathors, and "poor Hawley” had
110 help, yvhile the Columbia river
had the delegations of several states
legging lor it He brought up the
case ot Mr Hawley’s action in leav­
ing Washington at the lime of the
funeral of the president’s wile,
when it was plainly his duty to be
there, on the ground that he was
on a committee of the Woodmen of
the World and had to attend a
meeting ia Denver to pass on in­
surance matters, or a lot of widows
and orphans would have had to
watt three months for their mouey,
which has a fishy sound, as it seems
more likely that Hawley was afraid
of being docked part cf his salary ol
$75 a month which he draws Irom
the W . O. W. for duties which he
petlorms on time for which he is
paid by the government.
Other speakers were C. I. Rie-
gard and I. S. Smith, the last talk­
ing on the initiative measures, can­
didates Barrow, Pete Watsou and
Armstrong were also briefly heard
It would take a powerful imagin­
ation to call the meeting enthusi­
astic. The utter failure to respond
to Judge Sehlbrede’s pointed pause
alter a prediction that the next
national administration would be
Republican made this apparent;
but tlie judge failed to heed the
warning, and he came a cropper
at the last that must have dazed
him I:i accordance with the time-
honored custom of tormer days, in
which stand patters are still living,
Judge Sehlbrede wished to raise a
cheer at the end of his talk So he
closed with glowing predictions of
Republican success and then said
that as a proof that Republican en­
thusiasm was not dead (or words to
that effect) he would call for three
cheers for “ the Republican ticket
from top to bottom ” ‘ Now,” said
the judge, ‘ All ready—Hip—Hip
— Hooraw.” And not another man,
woman or child in the house opened
his, her or its mouth. Except for
Judge Sehlbrede’ s lusty “ Hoo-raw,”
the stillness was so death like that
one might have heard a pin drop,
—until the big laugh started, while
the judge covered his confusion
and took his seat.
Yet it is a safe bet that not one
old line politician in the house. Re­
publican or Democrat took to heart
the plain lesson that the voters are
sick and tired of the old vote her
straight political claptrap, and that
if the Republican patty wishes to
“ come back” it will have to quit
living in the early eighties of the
last century.

The Taft ot today is an ordinary
sized man, in tnatked contrast to
the Taft of a year and a hall ago.
Dieting and exercise worked the
transformation, and now the tailors
plan the raiment of the former
President, whereas the job might
have been formerly assigned to some
great artist poet, like “ Omar, the
Tentmaker," which has been show­
ing to appreciative Washington aud­
iences Nearly a hundred pounds
ol surplus meat has dropped off
this one human frame, aud any fat
man who can fail to appreciate
what William Howard has done for
the species is overlooking an oppor­
tunity that might make a handsome
gentleman out of a "fat slob of a
man.” And Taft looks the picture
of health—quite different from the
“ fattest President.”
He has con­
quered himself, and remade his life
aud his habits; who therefore will
not say that be is greater than he
who might have taken a city, or
even kept the Republican party out
of debt.
"Old Bill" Taft looks younger
than he did sixteen months ago—
as a matter ot fact he has never
looked “ old” at all. The bald spot
on the back of hi* head is a little
larger; his infectious laugh that he
cannot suppress, even when mak­
ing a short speech, is a little louder
than formerly; but as a private citi­
zen and a college professor he is a
wonderful success, and there is no
difference of opinion on this point,
as there used to be regarding his
grading as a President.
It is surp-isingly strange that
there should be so much diflerence
of opinion as to what effect the
