- Representative Moody Friday tavor
ably reported in the Indian committee,
Representative Tongue' bill to ratify
the treaty with the Klamath Indians,
whereby they cede to the United States
tract of 621,824 acrea of their reserva
tion, for which the goyernment agree to
pay them $537,007.
Scandalous report come from the
Philippine of cruelty to the natives by
American troops. These are very gen
erally discredited by those wbo are com
petent to judge of their truth. It is
probable that the American army con
tain ruflian. They are met with in all
walk ol life and the condition of army
life are often such as to foster the spirit
of ruffianism. Hut the ruffian in the
army constitute only a small minority
of the soldier. If outrago by them
occur, it Is only in isolated cases and the
perpetrator are punished whenever
they can be located.
Secretary of the Navy Long ha ten.
dered hi resignation of the portfolio and
it ha been accepted by President
Roosevelt. His successor is Congress
man Moody of Masaachussata. The re
lations between Roosevelt and Long weiu
pleasant and there was no friction
between them to cause the secretary to
resign. Long bad intended to resign im
mediately after the death of McKluley,
. but remained until certain lines of policy
in which be was involved were more sat
isfactorily arranged. Long has been sub
jected to aharp criticism during hi term
and has been often accused ol unjust
favoritism, particularly against Schley
and favoring Sampson, yet ou tb whole

in th management of the affair ol tb
Iord Kitchener again "regret to re
port" a very serious disaster in South
Africa, Tb Hours hav captured
General Methuen and four guns after a
hard battle. Methuen was moving to
Lichlonburg with 1200 men and four
guns. The llrtlisb had moved out of
their camp about three o'clock In the
morning and Just before daybreak were
attacked by the Iloers under Delarey.
The Boer attacked on three aide and
aoon stampeded the British mules, wbo
forthwith ran away with the baggage
wagons, throwing the entire British
column into dire confusion. The
British lost three officer and 38 men
killed, five officer and 71 men wounded
and 200 men missing. Methuen was
wounded and taken prisoner. The
ability of the Boer to Inflict an injury
to th British of so serious a nature a
this come a surprise to many who
believed them almost at the end of their
resistance. Their fighting qualities are
aurberb and they show a fertility of le
sourc and ability in the unequal war
fare which seems almost miraculous.
William Bind Roosevelt.
The similarity between Empeior
William and 1'resident Roosevelt not
exactly in their politics, but in their
mental, physical, moral and admlnia
tratlv makeup geuerally-bas been
repeatedly noticed. It 1 stated in an
exebaage that Kmperor William can
talk Suently In six language. He has
written a play and conducted It re
hearsal. Ne man live a busier 111 than
he, but on the discovery of the Roentgen
rey be telegraphed for Professor
Roentgen and talked with him (or hours,
lis lis written a public prayer and eon
ducted a choir. He can cook hi own
dinner, can play chess, paint pictures
and draw caricatures. He bsa learned
engineering and studied electricity.
Though he can us only one arm, he
can shoot game for four hours at the
rale of two minute. He has over a
hundred title and is an Admiral iu
Ihre of the biggest nayie. Iu twenty
Bve year he ha (hot 23,000 bead ol
game. He changes his drest a doaen
time a day. ha a dosen valet, and hi
wardrobe I worth 500,000.
Oh my I We are afraid this beats our
president In aooi particular. Hut it
may be assumed that he can talk Chi
nook and Spanish, beidee very good
English. That after having lived out
in the Rocky Mountains several years,
he can cook a dinner there can be no
doubt. And we will put him ap against
William to shoot wild game any day.
He may not be as versatile, or change
his clothes quite so often as William,
but we wouldn't trade rulers, not if the
Kaiser would throw Iu all his royal
relations -'to boot," Telegram.

To Help Mining Exhibit.
The Grants 1'acs Board of Trade have
lnstiucted their olilcer to proceed with,
the construction of the Josephine
county chamber ol exhibits, and while
the building committee are ready and
anxious to begin at the earlieat possible
moment, thay find that the amount of
easb subscribed will barely purchase
the materials used in the construction ol
the building as per plans and specifica
tion now on band. This leaves one of
two course open to the committee,
namely, to change plan and build a
mailer and cheaper building, or raise
more money and labor. To cheapen
th building would be to detract from
it effectiveness as an advertising
medium and this no citizen who has

In troing over the famous "Hhasta
Routs" ol the Southern Pacific Co. the
traveler ever finds somotliing new to
excite his admiration and interest'
Htarting at 1'nrtland, one traverses the
whole length of the Willamette Valley,
the gem of the Northwest. Ml. Hood,
Mt. .lefleraon, and the Three Sisters and
other snow-capped peaks are kept in
sight for hours. The beautiful valleys
of the Umpqna and Hogue River, with
their orchards of prunes, peaches, apples,
and other fruits are a delight in them
selves. The crossing of the great mount
ain barrier between Oregon aud Calif
ornia reveals the grandest in mntain sce
nery in the United States. The wonderful
turning!), twistings, and doublings ol the
railroad bring into view a grand array of
towering mountains and profound gorges
into which we gaze from dizzy heights,
forest clad mountain slopes stretching
up to the line of perpetual snow, and
the foaming mountain streams dashing
fiercely down deep canyons, now and
then stopping for a short rest in some
iuiet pool. After a day's enjoyment of
old Mt. bhasta, the finest peak on the
continent, we drop rapidly down the
canyon of the Hacramenlo to the broad
plains of the Hacremento Valley in Cal
ifornia, and thence through viueyards
and orchards to Han Francisco.
