When Manila was captured, the Second
Oregon was the only regiment to enter
I tile cltv and receive the surrender of the
I Spanish armv and arms. A number of
line old bronze cannon were captured at
that time. One of them was brought
home and this splendid old bronze, cast in UAIPTI:N
j Spain more than a Century ago, is now
I being made Into souvenir buttons by a
I committee of the volunteers, and the but- W. '' SAMMS,

PHI SS dispatches announce lint Drey
Ills appeueil unr.Npeitedlv a lew davs
siiKf In Pails, and the authorities are so
imiv.li untried over the even) that he will
be quietly oidered to leave the dtv. I his
uneasiness ceitaiuly is the result of a
'I III- most sensible editorial that has ap
peared In a I'oill.iud paper for ages was
the one the lelegram published a few
days shue, ridiculing I he pnike depigment
tor tile luss It made over a poor nipple
girl who was solkiliiig alius, whUi uu

"I III- war Is piaitlcallv over," "Mow
long will the war last," "Rumor in
Manilla ol an outbreak," ate three head
lines over ptess dispatches In two ad
joining columns ol a leieut iopv of the
Spokesman-Review. The Philippines
ate, indeed, a white elephant on Uncle
Illl. MINPU is not an issue in the late
lamented iuuiikip.il unpleasantness its
the "tool other fellow." This is a news
papet that dors not have to devote its col
umns to boosting itsell and uoisly prod. lim
ing what it has done, the vast business It

"sled up" about tight and Till! AilNhH
is f.iirlv well s.itished with the way things
All. sotts ol Imptobable, dettiinent.il,
iiulouuded stoties ate being circulated
since the lite about siispklotis circum
't.utces pointing to an alleged persistent
eliort to burn this town. Such talk is
silly; thete is no danger of anything ol
the kind. I he ntebug who tiled to tutu
,i ttick the othet night is spotted and he
will not make .mother attempt. He is a
cowardly, petty thiel and incapable rt
pertoi tiling any bold, desperate deed. II
he has not alieadv kit, he will sneak out
ol town at the first oipotiuuilv.
Illl-people ol (irauile should look nut
lor the mine "piomotets" and mining
"magnates" who uudeitaKe to do busi
ness on wind. As ipikk as operators of
Aliis il.iss are dlscoveied they should be
given a gentle, but emphatic, Invitation to
make themselves scaue. ll the Invita

It Is really uuloitunate that sttJi stull
js the above should mid its way into any
newspaper ol this dlsttkl. It conveys the
lalsr impression that the people already
heie ate merely seeking the man with
money tor what there Is to be made out of
him; that no others, ate wanted or wel
touted. Of course capital Is needed and
wat'led bete, but one promoter such as
this paragraph Is trying to describe will
induce mote money to invest here and do
the disttUt mote substantial good than a
itain load ol such men who are capable of
conceiving stub a sentiment. The fence
of Oregon who lost their live;, in the
Spanish and l-'ilipiiio war. The button
is made with a button back for men and
boys and a pin back for ladies and girls.
'I lie genuineness of the buttons Is attested
by the lerlilnate of Hrigadier-t ieneral O.
Summers. This Is a valuable souvenir of
th; war, such as every adult and child in
Oregon would be pleased to possess,
especially as the entire proceeds of tile
sale will go to erect a spleuid monument
to serve as a perpetual object lesson hi
patriotism to the youth of the state. The
buttons sell in any (piantily at 2; cents
each. I he secretary ot the committee is Center, cor. High St.
