la newly evinced by an outrage recently
perpetrated on Chinamen by white men
and Mexican near Riverside, Cat., A
gang of Chinamen were captured and
hauled In farm wagon to a lonely
place ou the river bottom and were
there treated moat brutally and beaten
Into Insensibility. The excuse was that
everal Mexican girl bad been die
charged from working in a cannery and
that the Chinese had been hired in
their places. The real reason how
ever, which the excuse gave opportunity
of putting into practise, was that the
perpetrator were lavage and brutal In
their natuie and only waiting to vent
their inaliciousnesa The Chinamen
seldom dart to resent abuae and public
opinion I Indifferent to the treatment

, . , . more worthy thing recorded than the
good resolution, necessary and prelimi
nary to good accomplished. There i no
better time, either, lor the inauguration
of good resolve than the beginning 01
this new year aud century. Thousands
ol people throughout the world will
resolve that the coming year ahall be
the beet year of their live and whether 1
they succeed or not their effort In the
direction, however alight, can not 'jil ol
being productive of good to themselves
and to other. The next beat thing to
access it honest failure. The effort is
the Important thing after all. Thoae
who rise do ao by constant effort. Any
laxity results In a retrograde movement
and it requires no effort to pursue a
downward course. Effort in the right
direction I not to be despised or

be. It counts In the aggregate and I'
Influence can not be lost. Nothing that
I elevating or ennobling ia to be treated
with contempt and nothing 1 more
ennobling than an honest resolve for
better thing. The element In the
matter most worthy of derision Is the
ease with which good resolutions are no
often abandoned and discarded and the
discouragement which ao olten attends
light failure. It should be mure
generally comprehended that ultimate
success la generally achieved only after
many failures. If every person should,
at Ins beginning of thia year, 1001,
make an honest resolution to do in every
way the very best they are capable, the

The deceased wa native Oregonian,
being born iu Jackson county, tills state,

Portland' moat energetic aud wide

John Angel' career wa so meteoric
that he wa nicknamed by hi friends
"Villard." In the '80 everybody
called him Villard, and in tbe '00s he
till retained a hold on that name.
Angel' laat important known mining

There la more delay In the comple
tion of the large number of torpedo
boat and torpedo boat destroyers
which the government is building un
der contracts at various yards in va
rious parts of the country. A year
ago th navy department consented to
extend the time of tbe contractors en
gaged on this work for 12 months. It
was expected that there would be no
difficulty in completing tbe craft
within that period. The delay was oc
casioned, the contractor say, by the
scarcity of steel.
Th particular quality of material
required waa such as to demand spe
cial processes, and the steelmakers re
fused to take orders for the steel when
they were loaded up with other order
requiring leaa care and producing
greater returns. The representations
were sustained by the department in
an Inquiry conducted on Its own ac
count, and the contracts accordingly
were extended with the expectation
that there would be no more difficulty
and that the boata would b completed
by this time.
The ytara" extension has expired, and
most of the boats and destroyers are
still far from completion, many of
them are but three-quarters ready
for trial, and a great deal of work re
mnips tq be done on board the ships be
fore they can be turned over to the
government. It Is quite evident, say
thenavn.1 constructors, that there mint
be another extension of time, or the
contractor will be subjected to heavy
fines which will deprive them o.- the
meager profit involved In the construc
tion of such small ships of war as tor
pedo boats and torpedo boat destroy

The skeleton of a dog was fouiid under

A stone arrow point between I he ribs
