The remains ol the "Mcrritnac,"
lying in the entrance to Santiago bar
bor, have lately been blown up with
dynamite as an obstacle to navigation.
6unk to close the harbor, she was a flat
failure in that line, Id spite of the aster
lions of success at the time.
Aguinaldo'i addrecs to the Filipino
people has been made public, lie says
that he can no longer refuse to bear the
voice of a people longing for peace
llesajs: "After mature deliberation
I resolutely proclaim to the world that
I cannot refuse to heed the voice of
people lonniug for peace, nor the lumen
tations ot thousands of families yearning
to see their dear ones enjoying the lib
erty and the promised generosity ol the
great American Nation."
Grants 1'asa is to be politically con
gratulated for one very important res
son. There is no division on party lines
in city elections. Other towns go "He-
puoncan" or "Democratic" but we Hre
spared that foolishness, A city govern
ment lias no more connection with
national politics than it has with Mars
The issues ot city election are purely
local and to hamper the intelligent ex
pression of sentiment on these issues by
cutting them up with party lines is the
height of foolishness and the wonder
that any town. will endure having issues
submitted in such a manner.
The Transvaal war is the moat ex pen
aive luxury the English nation basin
dulged in for msny years. Already the
cost of the war is in the near neighbor
hood of 1150,000,000, with the end of the
conflict still invisible. A new losn ol
00,000,000 was very recently contracted
and all possible steps are being taken to
increaso the revenues. The ability ol
the handlul of Boers to so tax the re
source! of a nation that is reputed to tie
the most powerful on earth is one ol the
marvels of the age. It is mors than
likely that If England had realized that
the war would cost one hall bl what it
has, there would have been no war. The
expense of both life and money has been
enormous and still continues Indefinitely
All citizens who have the welfare of
the town at heart should not neglect to
attend the nominating conventions both
for ward and city snd tee that solid safe
men are nominated for every elective
office. The importance ol this matter
should not be underrated. It should be
looked after carefully and not permitted
to look after itself. Good city govern
ment It a most Important object and can
better be secured at the conventions and
the polls than anywhere else. Citixens
who stay away from nominating con
ventiont should bold their peace if the
ensuing government Is not to their taste.
In almost everv town ami city good gov
eminent is hampered because good citi
sens stay away from the primal let. Let
Grants 1'ast be among the exceptions.
Japan, it is reported, is making all
preparations for resisting the encroach'
merits ol Russia in Manchuria and
Korea. The Japanese are nervily pre
paring to pit their their lorcet against
those ol the powerful nulion and evi
denlely intend to go it alons in the
matter. That It the courso they will
probably Tiave to pursue if they do any
thing, lor, with all the talk ol assistance
by England and Germany, it is likely
that neither of these nations will And it
expedient to meddle. War Ulk is
cheap, but actual hostilities are not
lightly Indulged in. England has au
Interesting all'air on hand already and
Germany it Is likely, may not discern
any profit in interfering. The little
brown men can flitht at fast as those
any uation on earth, at it shown by
their late performance In China, but
Iiuesla it to iiiperior in power and
resources that no one believet that the
smaller nation can gut anything but the
worst of it if a conflict actually ensue.
Jue Japanese are very patriotic, ijuuk
and resourceful and undoubtedly would
make it interesting for their adversaries
for a time.

The passing ol the ordinance to pro
tect song birds and birds of a harmless
nature iu this city is a good one snd the
council deserves credit lor taking such a
matter under consideration and acting
opan It favorably. Tht principles ol
kindliest or cruelty apply to many things
besidti birds. In fai t they affect every
detail of life and the more we can liave
ol the principle ol kindliest, the nearer
we will tpproarh at a people to the high
standards which thould be our aim. or
lue sake ol the birds alone the ordinance
is worth the enactment, but a result ol
greater importance mutt follow ;llio pro
motion ol the spirit and principle of
kinduest and regard for other person or
tilings besides ourselves. Where this
principle it absent crime flourishes, and
tint move it directly In line with the
bett governmental policy, that which
seeks to correct at the beginning rather
than the end. In this connection also,

ot live birdt lor target practice. Killing

longs to savagery and should be obsolete

step in the right direction.
McKinley Coming. .
President McKinley and hit purty
will pass through here on the evening ol
May 21. They are scheduled to leave
Ashland at 7:30 p. m. and will probably
arrive here about nine o'clock. Owing
to the lateness of the hour, it is probable
that nothing will be done toward any
special entertaining arrangonmnts, but
the people will galher and endeavor at
least to catch a-glimpse of Ihegreat
man. We hope that McKinley will be

Troubles of Camp Life,
Almost every one In the west has
board the old story of the tenderfoot
cooking beans. The story it subject to
variations; sometimes it is rice, tome
timet drieil apples, but the main points
are ever the same.
It has fallen to the lot of a young man
lalely from Pittsburg to duplicate this
story In actual lile. This young man
and a companion had penetrated to the
wilds of the Illinois valley in quest of
gold and hud selected a camp as head
quarters during their search lor the
precious "metal. Here the tragedy oc
The young man wat unused to rough
ing it and the strange sounds of the
wilderness filled him with awe. The
coyote'i midnight song produced visions
in his mind of panthers and all man
ner ol ferocious carnivora so that his
rest at night was not serene.
One day while his partner went pros
peeling, the young man decided to cook
beam. Tim necessary ceremony ol
camp life had not as yl been performed
but the young man determined in hie
ruin 1 that the time had drawn nigh f
its celebration. No he filled the canii,
auiue wiin ueant, poured on tome
water, set it to cook and waited results
They came. To his horror the beans
expanded. They swelled visibly before
liis eyes. He relieved the overflowing
kettle by skimming off the topmost
beans and putting them into the stew
