If ynu see It in the American, you can
gamble on the assertion that it is mall
ilouslv false, or Is designed to Injure
Sumpter to bear the ptoposition, that's
I MOM alleged whipped Hnets did a
l.ilr day's work luue 7, w hen they killed,
wounded and captured all of the louith
Derbyshire battalion, except six enlisted
men. It is altogether ton royal a saullue
to the greed fur gold which Is being made
In this South AtiUau war. It causes
one to turn with levolt trom modern,
civ ill. ition and long tor an exhibition ot
some ol the native virtues, in which
juslke lias ever tecelved leiognltion.
I MINI is no nuestlon but what mote
prospecting auddev elopmeut is being done
In this ,nid adjoining districts the ptesent ,
season then duiiug a doeu previous
veils. Many eiuouraglug reports come
In trom the hills ot promising ledges dis
covered and good strikes made on old
deliveries All this means that the
mining luteiests of eastern Oregon ate In
a llouilshiug condition and when pro
spritnrsand miners arc in luck, the camps
are sute to prosper.
A Wlltl l lepott from Portland credits '
R. S. Sheiid.iu, chairman ol the state
driuoci.itk committee, with sav
ing: " I'heie Is not much hope ot lauding
Oiegon lot Itrvau, but we will make a
showing and keep up the organization.
The trouble with the democrats is that
thev lack conlidence. I hey do not be
lievewe c.tueleil state ollicers, and so
they do not enter the light with verv
ardent zeal. I he democratic piess, In
stead of supnttlng the Mate ticket, usually
Interests itsell in some pattkul.tr demo
cratic candidate and nukes all else sub-1
servient to his election."
I bechances aie several to one that the
democratic papers have done a whole lot
more tor the pattv than the patty has
ever done tor them, and when thev work
tor some one candidate it is with the hope
of a substantial reward in the shape of
lotiil patronage. In other words, it is a
fight for existence, for self preservation
a hope that has perhaps been repeatedly
throttled by the party at large. There Is
a whole lot of buncombe Indulged In
relative to the duty of a newspaper in a
IT looks as If China were finally about
to be carved and divided by the civilized
nations of the globe; something they have
long wished to do. In this event, there
is going to be as intertaluiug an interna
tional sparring contest for points as the
world has seen for a century or more.
Already l.'ipan and Russia seem to be
arraiiiging the preliminaries for a "go"
at each other. Hut the feature of most
absorbing interest to all the world Is
pointed out by 11 London Inlander, who
says that If China is opened wide to the
trade of foreign nations, it will call into
use such a vast quantity of silver money
that the price of that metal will in all
I probability reach a par value, at a ratio
of 16 to 1 In gold.' Nor dos this idea
seem unre.isonahl", either. Silver is the
most buoyant "commodity" known a
favorable bill introduced in congress will
send limitations through the ceiling.
Pltl ss dispatches from Washington

performed by the navy, now tint Congress

Admiral Bradford, chief of the bureau of
equipment, has approved a recommenda
tion submitted by Commander Todd for
an elaborate charting on the triangle
formed by the Hawaiian Islands, the
southernmost point of the Philippines and
the Islands of Japan. It Is also proposed ,
to establish a path between Honolulu and
the Philippines tube followed by Ameri
can warships, so that if any become dls-1
abled, others tollowing may pick
them up. It is understood, of course,
that the United States can obtain more
expeditious results bv cooperating with1
other nations, lap. in has expressed her I
willingness to chart the waters hi the
vicinity of her islands and (Jreat Britain
has charted to some extent the China sea
and the Last Indies.
