Cities of Oregon.
The census bureau gives out the fol
lowing figures concerning the popula
tion of Oregon towns of more than 2,000
and less than 65,000 population. It is
very likely that none of the towns
named feel greatly elated over the re
turns as given. We in Grants Pass
think we should have at least 3,000.
These returns show Baker City to
have made tbe most phenomenal in
crease. After Baker City, Grants Pass
and Ashland show the largest percent
age of increase, about 50 per cent in the
10 years. Tbe figures show Eugene and
Salem to have receded, whicb hardly
appears possible in consideration of
the great increase of population in the
state: .. '

Reliable News From China.
Martin Egan, the well known corres-
nond;nt of the San Francisco "Chroni
cle," returned Iroin China on the U. 8.
transport Thomas, Saturday. He has
been acting as a BtarT correspondent and
has the following to say regarding re
cent events in China.
Tbe campaign just closed will prob
ably be without moral effect upon the
people of North China, for some of the
allied troops duplicated nearly every
atrocity which the Chinese inflicted
upon the foreigners. Great Britafn, the
good and true friend of China disclaim
ing any intent to make war on the
Chinese and moved only by tbe worthy
plan of rescuing her ministers, turned
ner Indian thieves loose and they looted
and pillaged until they sickened ot the
game tnemselves. Stolen property,
valued at many million ot silver dollsrs,
waB sold at the British legation and will
be divided as prize money as in good old
days of piracy. The Russian and French
troops, good looters, too, could not keep
their unclean hands of the women of the
country, and all of the soldiery, with the
exception of the Americans, shot their
prisoners and even unarmed men bus
pected of complicity in the anti-foreign
The Germans sot up courts and shot
scores and Bootes of men upon charges
ot being in the Boxor movement or con
cerned in the anti-foreign crusade. The
treatment of the Chinese everywhere
was inconceivably biutal. Tbore were
murder, robbery and rape until the
heart sickened of it all. Mind you, this
was all done by the armies ot Christian
nations seeking to show the poor pagan
the right way. I am proud that tbe
hands of the American soldiers are clean.
They did some looting, hut despite the
example and the opportunity they were
not carried off their feet, and once the
conlusion was over General Chaffee saw
that his troops remained honest. There
was no need to prevent American
soldiers from shooting prisoners and
unarmed men. They do not do that and
they could not be taught to do It. Our
army will come out of China with credit
to us all. It was not the best disiplined
force there, for the American can hardly
be trained down to absolute discipline,
but in the matter of fighting in shotted
superior to most others and was second

Letter From Charlton Perkins.
Calakua. P. I. Oct. 1, 1900.
At one time it was fascinating past
time for me to write letters and my
mind was constantly filled with thoughts
which I could trauslate on paper with
assurance that it would be ot interest to
the receiver, but that time has passed.
I now find it a task to sit down and
write a letter. Perhaps tt is caused by
my long separation from friends and the
world has drifted us apart so that I have
nothing of interest to write, for I have
lost the course of their ideas and
thoughts, therefore I know of nothing
that would interest them. Well you
know this world drifts friends apart all
too easily unless we stem the tide of
friendship by frequent meetings.
One who remains in this country for
any length of time becomes a native in
respect "Never do today what you can
do numana." 1 find it even very hard to
sit down aud read, no matter how in
teresting the book or article may bq.
One's miud becomes Blow acting and your
perception leaves you.
I send by mails bolo and a k reuse,

troiu a native lieutenant when the
American forces made their advance

latter came (roin islands south. Each
notch in the hilt denotes the number of
human beings that have been killed
with the blade. I have come very valu
able curios and aa I am most likely to be
moving from lime to time, I shall begin
to send home those that I can send
through the mail, for when I take a
notion to leave here I will not have ao
I have been asked, "Do we have
watermelons here." Well they have a
vegetable here that resembles the
melon at home but they are tasteless
like all the vegetables and fruit. Noth
ing hi cultivated here. It just grows up,
like Topay grew up. There are only
two things here that are what you would
call good. They are the mango and a
eelect species of the banana which grows
in small quantities through the Islands
but should the fruits aud vegetables
receive cultivation, the best or at least
among tl.e best in the world would be
produced. Corn grows fairly well
here without cultivation. I see the
natives currying it by my door almost
every day, to the market. It sells here
(or about 05 cents gold per bushel.
Geneial Hall and his staff with two
companies of the 8th Infantry, aud 150
native scouts left on the 3rd to scour
these provinces for Insurecto bands that
may be here. They are constantly
growing more bold and as long as the
present system of kindness is practiced
hundreds of Americans are going to meet
death. Chahlton B. Pkbkinh.
There is more Catarrh in this section
of the country thau all other diseases
put together, and until the last few
years was supposed to be incurable.
For a great many years ' doctors pro
nounced ita local disease, and prescribed
local remedies, and by constantly failing
to cure with local tieulimnl pronounced
it incurable. Science has proven catarrh
to be a constitutional dlseace, and there
fore requires constitutional treatment.

J. Cheney 6 Co, Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the market.
It is taken internally in doses from 10
drops to a teaspoonlul. It acts directly

(From Our Regular Correspondent).
Wamiikuton, Dec. 3, 11XJ0.
Few sessions of congress have opened
more quietly than that which convened
today. Advance knowledge of tbe fact
that adjournment was to immediately
follow the opening of - the' session in
honor ot the memory of the late Senale-
ora Davis, of Minn, and Grear, of Iowa,
served to lessen attendance both on the
floor of the house and senate in the
galleries aud consequently to lessen
interest in the shor' proceedings.
Congressional interest it strongly cen
tered in the Isthmian Canal question.
Rightly rr wrongly, the announcement
that the ranal commission bad cut out
of ita report ita original recommendation
in favor of tbe Nicaragua route, and
left it to congress to decide between
that and the Panama route, from the
facta and figure presented, 1 taken to
have been brought about by the ahresrd
work of the lobbyists employed by the
Panama canal company, and to pretae
a fight, whicb may cause scandal betora
it ia ended; the lobbyist are also
credited with punting forward the Ship
Subsidy bill, which is likely to be tb
bitterest lought measure of the session,
for the purpose of displacing the
Nicaragua canal bill, whicb by resolution
adopted by the senate at the last session,
should he taken np on Wednesday of
thia week. Thia last may hare been
partly the case, but there are other
reason why senators will not object to
seeing the canal-bill go over for a while.
Tbe Hay Pa'incefote treaty, has not yet
been ratified, and Secretary Hay baa
just made a treaty with Nicaragua, git-
ing the Uaited States alt lbs right and
privileges needed to construct the canal.
Many of tbe strongest supporters of the
Nicaragua caual bill think that both of
these treaties should be ratified before
tbe canal bill ia seriously taken up by
There is constant watchfulness on the
part of senators to get better seals for
themselves. Applications are often Sled
by senators for the desirable seats held
by retiring senators, several years in
advance of the date of thoir retirement,
and for a senator who has a good seat,
to get sick, ia always the signal for
applications to be filed for his seat, In
case it should be vacated. Senator
Ilanna, who has had a . lesa desirable
seat, filed a claim for the teat occupied
by the late Senator Davis, about two
years ago, and It it now hit. He did
not dream, however, that the teat
would come to hi in through the death ot
Senator Davis. The claim was filed
because Senator Davis bad filed one tor
the seat of Senator Hoar, who at the
time talked of retiring ou account of hit
Representative Shaffrotb, ot Colorado,
is an enthusiast and an expert on the
subject ot Irrigation, tie bat introduced
a bill providing for the construction of
reservoirs in the arid sections of the
West and for the disposal of the pub
lic lands reclaimed thereby under the
homestead law. He thinks it an
erroneous idea that money spent In
irrigation only benefits the state in
which it it tpent. In hit own words:
"What benefits one stale largely profits
another. Thus enriching now Idle and
useless ground would result In the
providing for homes and a great future
to thousands and thousands, of home
less, helpless and penniless men in
very state in the Union,"
Captain Carl Reichuiann, U. 8. A.
who has just returned from South Africa
whore he was sent by tbe war depart
ment to observe the military operations
of the Boers, said of the Boer com
mander, whose recent successes have
revived hopes among the friends ot the
Boers : "De Weft a dandy. He it a
little man with a clear, fierce eye and a
stern visage, and weara a small black
hat. One would not pick him out iu a
company ot men at a warrior; and he'a
a butcher, or hit brother was, but he
knows how to fight." Captain Reich
uiann says that although the Boers aie
fine hunters and good murksmon, thoy
are not good soldiers, because they are
not susceptible to discipline,"
The story is very persistently asserted
arouud Washington, although denied
by war department olllcials that the
president has promised to set aside the
sentence of the court martial, suspend
ing him from duty for aix yean, and
restore General Kagan to active duty as
commissary general of the army. Kagan
is in Washington, but he declines to do
any talking about his case.
No one seriously doubtt that there
will eventually be practical flying
machines, but that doesn't prevent
money being invested in railway and
steam ship lines. Yet, a level-headed
man like Chairman Hepburn of the
house committee on inter state and
foreign commerce, who at the last
session reported and urged action on a
hill for a Pacific cable is quoted as ex
pressing the opinion that the claim of
Marconi, whose previous experiments
with wireless telegraphy have not been
entirely satisfactory even for short
distances, to have discovered a system
by which messages can be tent across
the ocean, without cables, will prevent
action on the cable hill.
There may be tome significance in the
remark of Senator Allison, who is in the
front rank of the majority leadort, that
the only legislation which must abso
lutely be disposed of at this sessioa In
order to prevent an extra session of the
next congress, outside of the fourteen
regular appropriation bills, were the
army bill and the reapportionment bill,
and all the other proposed legislation
was subsidiary and could If necessary,
be laid aside until the next congress
