The attitude ol the administration
toward the Sampson-Schley uuntroversy
seems to favor repressing or bushing up
ss far ss possible all further disputes
thstlarise, so that happily the matter
may sometime oeara to vex the public.
The county court st Its recent session
established a new precinct for this coun
ty, Selma precinct. It embraces Oak
Fist and the north part ol Kerby pre-
clnet. A strip was slso tsken from Ulate
creek precinct snd sddud to Boutb Grants
Conditions in Porto Klco sre wonder
fully Improved over tbose of two years
sgo. The Improvement lathe island is
msrvelous. The people have lust all
feeling of discontent toward the United
States and are anxious to become as
American as possible.
As toon ss ths obstacles to the con
truvtlon of the Nicaragua csnsl seemed
to be removed there arises another coin
plication ; the old Panama route, which
bss been receiving more fsvorable con
sideration than haa been deemed posil
ble. It is now said that it will require
all of ths present congressional session
for the senators to discuss tbe respective
merits ol tbe two routes.
There sre few more striking examples
of the wsy tbs world moves on than the
fact thst American capitalists srs sr
ranging to build a trolley line to Mecca
In view of the pilgrimages made annually
by the Mobemmedaua, Pilgrimages sre
suggestive of long snd srduous journeys
by foot or camel snd ths Ides ol making
pilgrimages to Meccs In trolley cars is
naromsntic to say the least.
Tbe Ashland city council has voted
on tbe question of licensing saloons aud
lias decided in fsvor of prohibition, so
thst tbe town will be "dry" for snother
year st lesst. After year's practical
test ths city government adheres to the
sntl-saloon Idea. At the late election,
the license party elected the mayor and
tbe asms Dumber of counciluien ss the
prohibitionists. Tbe bold-over council
meo are anti-saloon men which gives
that party a majority in ths council.

Jack Wade, one of ths Portland mur
dersrs, who bss been making a great

the superiority of the mental ooursge

The new Chinese exclusion bill
frsmsd by tbe Pacific coast duleuation
and which will be considered by the
present congress is very severe, Ike
delegation bavins apparently considered
it unnecessary to accord the Chinamen
any great degree 01 privilege. The new

tensely dramatic in action, and, while
not over-strained, there are climaxes
which keep the intercut ol the spectators

of the passages sre very pathetic, snd
there sre scenes in which the element of
humor predomlnstes. The plot is well
defined, and as the story ends happily,
there are no regrets. The scenic
features are well cared for, the carnival
scene being especially fine. All of the
