Ratifying news and leads to tbe belief

The administration ol McKinlejr bas
been characterised throughout by good,
sonnd judgment, fairness, political toler

. nnhlir alalia' Indeed, this last item
' baa been taken up by bis criticisers and
bas been and now is, a fruitful source of
so-called arguments used in bis dialavor.
Of all argument which could be used
against a tuan, it seems (o ns that this
is one ol the most far-fetched and pre
posterous. He is accused and con
demned for considering the people's
wishes and making an effort to carry them
Tbe Issue in this campaign is prosper
ity and there is no other. The silver
question is a rattling skeleton, imperial
ism is an inflated bugaboo, the trusts
re universal campaign material for all
participants. The country Is now pros
perous and the conditions which make
It so should be maintained. The elec
tion of McKinley and Koosevelt will
best further this end. It is good judg
ment to let well enough alone. Mc
Kinley has not been found wanting and
as long as things are going well, it is
good policy to take the surest way
toward continuing them in that direc
tion. Ban Francisco bas judge who has
faith in boys. A 14 year old lad was
brought before him some mouths ago on
a cbsrge of robbing Chinese. The
judge continued the charge against him
and released him without bail on con
dition thai lie would report to the court
every ail weeks. Tbe judge has con
tinued the case of four or five boys on
the san.e conditions, in each case sur
rounding the boy with good influences.
It is gratifying to note that there seems
no doubt that the judge will ultimately
rescue the boys from their evil ways
and save them without conviction of
felony and term In the reform school.
Tbe free reading room project Is mov
ing along steadily. Subscriptions for
Its support are being received and also
donations of magazines and periodicals.
This Is movement that should re
ceive 1 he hearty support of all citicuna
who are Interested in the good of the
community and who have at heart the
welfare of the growing boys. Kucha
place bas been the need of this town for
year past aud now that it is an assured
fact we should do all in our power to
belp it along. Let it not be again said
of Grants Pass that the only place for
the boys and young mn to so and
spend an evening is to the saloon or
cigar store or that the stranger who
comes into our city to remain a day or
two has no good place to spend his time
after transacting his business. A free
raiding room well supplied with ruaga
sines and periodicals will do more to
advertise this town than can possiby be
The assault on Koosrvelt in Colorado
shows the effect that demagogiiery and
political superstition has on the ignorant
and vicious human mind. It would
not be fair or right to lay the blame of
such an occurrence as this to llryan or
the democratic party, but such things
would probably not occur but for the
intemperate ulturrnces ol excited politi
cal sneakers, which are taken seriously
to heart by thoao of their listeners w ho
are possessed ol light minds aud vacant
undemtandiug. Political speakers often
(ail to remember that their first duty
should be to advocate principles and
sentiments which aie right and lawful,
rather than to make wild and inflam
matory statements, even, iu the sup
posed interest ol Hie party. When a
man or party eacrillcua principle to vote
getting, be or it is on a ruinous mad.
Mo 011s ol the parties la absolutely free
from this mn and it is the duty ol each,
to purily itself of it as far aa it is
possible to do so. If the political
education nfl'ured the voters is not
rational, reasonable and conducive to
law and order, it is hartulul in
an incalculable degree. Intemperate
speech is one of the most ruinous
agencies iu existence.

The Intense conservatism of the Ilrit
ish character is illustrated in the story
of u young Englishman who came to
America to seek his fortune and found
it in a new process for manufacturing
lampblack, soys the Kansas City Star.
The principal market for his product
was (lerinany, hut he found that the
Herman buyers, iu turn, sold it in Eng
land. So he conceived the logical idea
of going to England and selling the
lumpblack direct, which appeared to
be certain of success, for he was able
to say to the English firms:
"Instead of buying my lampblack
through (ierinauy and paying for un
til I'essury transportation, to say noth
ing of the middleman's profit, let lne

NEW FACTS ABOUT MALARIA.
What the lt?rrhf of German
Sciential la Sew Gutaua
In a recent issue of the Deutsche
Meiliinische Woekenschrif t there is
an interesting necount of the discov
eries made by Prof. Koch in (iermnn
New (iiiinea iu regard to malaria. The
professor began his investigations at
StephanSort, and learned that 25 per
cent, of the population of that place
were sulTering from malaria. Out of
21 Europeans. 12 were sick; out of
240 Chinese, C.I; out of 200 Malays.
S.'l, and out of 20-1 Melanesians, 29. In
New Hanover not a single Melanesian
was afflicted with the tnaladv, where
as out of l'J Melanesians of (iarilner's
island 9 were ill. In King William's
Land, as in Java, Prof. Koch found' a
large number of native children in
fected with the disease, nnd as a re
sult he niaiiitaius that only by a thor
ough examination of the children can
it he ascertained whether any dis
trict is infected' or not.
The entire coast of King Willinm's
Lund is. he thinks. Infected, while
the iieighnoring islands set m to be
more or less free from the disease.
The presence of malaria in some places
and not in others may oe accounted
for in a measure by the formation of
the land and by the unusual activity
of the pestiferous Anophelis flies. It
would lie unwise, however, says Prof.
Koch, to attach too much weight to
these factors, nndi especially to the
latter, since these Hies are to he found
in regions which are wholly free from

The Liberal Territorial Craalitna
t'blnn Una Made from Time
Each conflict In which Chins has en
gaged has resulted in a loss of terri
tory. The principal cessions made bv
the Mongol government as the price of
peace have been the following: The
island of Formosa was tvdnl to Japan
in ls'.ii, after the war with China. In
ls7 (Icru.auy seized the port of Kiou
Chou on the east coast of the Shant ling
peninsula, her excuse for so doing be
ing a massacre of missionarii s which
had taken place there.' Two months
later she rccihi'd from China a Ml- ear
lease of the port ami district. In lsys
Itiissia obtained from China a 25-ear
lease of Port Arthur. Taiienwan and
their pdjaeent territories and waters.
The lease can be extended by mutual
agreement. The san.e y ear the Chinese
government gave permission for (ireat
liritain to occupy V i-Ilai -Wei for as
long a period as Knssia shall hold Port
Arthur. "To compensate France for
the concessions given to (iieat Itrilain
and Russia a ll'.t-year lease was given
her of the hay of Kwang-Chau Wan. on
the coast opposite the island of Hainan,
and last year two islands at the en
trance of the bay were definitely ceded
to her. llong-Kong was ceded to (Ireat
