Wc need a doctor. There arc
enough people here now to require
the presence of a pnysician, and
people are flocking iu all .the time;
but no one dares to get sick with
malice aforethought, because, what's
the use, when the doctors at Priue
ville have more than they van at
tend to at home without cruising
thirty miles out into the country?
We venture the assertion that if a
doctor would scttle'hcrc there would
be too per cent more sickness than
there is at present. This is an un
usually healthy country, but the
idea of having a physician within
easy reach will cause some of the
people who are well now

Dewey's Opinion of the Clcrman Navy
Considerable surprise and inter
est was manifested last week iu an
authentic interview with Admiral
Dewey, in which he makes compar
isons between the American and
German uavics in a manner border
ing on thu sensational. Admiral
"The United States navy is the
greatest iu the world, for this rea
son: livery man in the United
States navy is a mrtu of intelligence.
He knows just what tp do,iud the
right time to do it. A warship is
an enormous machine shop, and ev
ery part of thut ponderous creation
must be oimrated by intelligence.
"The German nayy, for instance,
has uu cntiroh different organiza
tion; it is made up of human ma
terial. Iluucuuulca deep study
of that navy. My belief is that its
efficiency in jxmible action is great
ly overestimated. The men do not
bogiu to compare in education and
intelligence with the Americans.
Their men have, in my opinion,
been educated so that they look to
the officers and depend upon them
ffor specific instructions in the least
matters. They have not the self
reliance of the Americans.
"The maneuvers 'in the Carib
bean were not only successful, but
were the greatest object lesson of
the kind probably that the world
has ever seen. It was an object
lesson to the' kaiser more than to
any other person. Think of it 54
warships, including colliers and nil.
Germany could not' possibly get a
fleet over here that could fight such
uu aggregation of warships as
Speaking of the utility of the
Panama canal in time of war, Ad
miral Dewey said
"It lias been sajd that we could
mobilize a ua'vul fleet from the Pa-
clfic to the Atlantic, or from the
Atlantic to the Pacific, in compara
tively short order. But let the en
emy sink a warship iu the middle
of the canal, and'it is blocked."
He says that ships sailing from
Kurojxinn ports for the Orient and
Australia, which' now retrace their
course, will, with an isthmian can
al, completely encircle the globe,
using both the Panama and Sue,
canals. Ho added:
"The Panama canal, when com
pleted, may force the great British,
German, French and other steam
ship lines that now have their es
tablished routes completely to revo
lutionize their schedules. I call sec
that in this respect the canal would
give to the United States a wonder
fully increased influence in the com
mercial world. Hut this is some
thing no one can predict with ac
curacy. Conditions iti the commer
cial resources of the worlds arc so
constantly changed. You can fig
ure with some degree of accuracy
concerning the ocean currents, trade
winds and other natural conditions,
but you cannot regarding commer
Admiral Dewey is apparently not
to be reckoned a presidential candi
date. He says the office is dot what
it was 12 or 16 years ago. It now
requires a man in the prime of life,
one who is "not top old," as the
demands arc much heavier upon a
president since we became a world
The entertainment at the school
house on Saturday evening was an
unqualified, howling, uproarious
success, both regarding the enter
taining ability of the schoolmaster
and his flock, and from a financial
The evening's program was
opened with a very felicitous ad
dress from Mr. Hampton, the
schoolmaster, in which he explained
the purpose of the entertainment
and apologized for shortcomings on
the part of the pupils, which we all
failed to discover
Miss Iva West then favored the
audience with a beautiful solo,
Porcvcrand For You," and the
audience was keenly disappointed
at the absence of an encore.
Chas. Low's Dutch dialect reci
tation was a prize-winner, and he
retired amidst a storm of applause.
A. II. Kennedy on the violin and
Miss Marion Wiest on the organ
were the only outsiders, and their
efforts were greatly appreciated.
Sylvester Staats, who was to re
cite Lincoln's Oration at Gettys
burg, was unfortunately ill,4ut his
place was ably filled by Mr. Hamp

of Mrs. Caudle's curtain lectures iu

pils was performed iu excellent time

The entertainment closed with a
character play by eleven of the pu
pils, entitled "The Model Lesson."
The parts were very well acted and
the plot was funny.
Mr. Chas. Cottor then auctioned
the baskets which had been, pre
pared by the ladies with such good
success that after the last one had
been sold the sum of thirty-five dol
lars hud found its way to the school
master's pockets, and a fine nucleus
for u, school library is assured,
A part of the program not down
on the schedule took place after the
visitors had stowed away the con
tents of the baskets. A "Donny
brook" riot was nearly precipitated
outside the door, and if it had not
bceli for the cooler counsel of some
of the older heads a great deal of
hair, Whiskers and gore would have
been contributed for the benefit of
the library fund.
Quicksilver Aline Sold .,
The fact that a quicksilver mine
in Eastern Oregon lias lately been
sold for 50,000 will astonish many
mining men as well as others.
Quicksilver mines arc not often
bought or sold iu the state, as they
are not numerous here. The prop
erty in question might more prop
erly be spoken of as a claim, as it is
not thoroughly developed yet, aU
though two tunnels have been run
for some distance demonstrating the
fact that there is plenty of ore and
of excellent quality, yielding 3 per
cent of quicksilver, which is con
sidered a high grade, The claim is
situated about 30 miles from Priue
ville, and the sale is reported by II.
C. Brodle, who has been prostwet
ing in that section and who says
that, although the transaction has
not yet been put on record, $35,000
of the purchase price has been paid,
and that the remainder will be paid
by April 10. The claim is owned
by three partners, one of whom is n
resident of Portland, one resides in
New Mexico, and the other is trav
eling. The purchasers arc citizens
of Duluth. When $50,000 is paid
for what might be termed a "pros
pect hole," it is evident that the
prospects it yields must be promis
ing, and if there is a good mine in
this claim there may be others iu
the same district. The develop
ment of this mine will be watched
for with interest by all mining men.
