NO WAR WITH CHILI.
War with Chill neeius to bo about as
remote ao Mok the attnek on the crew
of the Baltimore. 'More rumors have
lieeit afloat than luttl.hio8, and they
Lave been of all hue. Through It all,
however, the good aense of the Chilian
government tnlietlipendel on to pre
vent war. Chill cannot atVord It, nor
ran we. Of course, war once begun,
one course only could lw pursued, and
that would be to wage It to the end
until the innn of South America no
loniwr contained the name of Chili..
However, one cannot help but think
that we may not be wholly right, nor
( hill wholly wrong. We all know the
characteristics of sailors, one of which
is to tackle John Barleycorn whenever
they get ashore. There Is a possibility
that a superabundance of Intoxicating
liquors hud much to do with the begin
ning of the row between the Baltimore
nallor and the Chilian mob. Another
phase of the question is that at the time
Chill had no government, and has
claimed ever since President Mount
was inaugurated that the offenders
were being tried 'under the laws, and
that as soon as the testimony was In,
Chill would act. The Uuited States
has been hasty in her demands, albeit
negligent in not enforcing them when
once made. Another thing is that,
while there is a vast difference between
an attack on the sailors of one of our
war ships, nud an attack on private
citizens, yet the matter of correcting an
attack on either Is the same. The post-;
tlon token by Chili with regard to the
attack on the sailors of the Baltimore
is exactly the position taken by Secre
tary Blaine in replying to the Italian
government's demand for reparation
for the killing of her citizens at New
Orleans. Mr. Blaine said: "The case is
bing investigated, and this govern
ment cannot reply until a verdict is
reached." Chili has repeated his
words. The war scare has served a
good purpose, and it is to be hoped that
work will be prosecuted vigorously in
the navy department until the United
States has the finest navy in the world.
Congress should place the means at the
disposal of the department at once.
We have the best country in the world
and we can afford to and ought to have
the best navy to protect it.'

months, the beautiful Kignora M.irchis

a dream was arisen little by littie. oc

sensible to all the rest the dream of at

She wanted it, absolutely; 6he was

"yes," which she had just pronounced,
had, by its three magic letters, changed
her destiny; and she was so content, so
happy, that it appeared to her it was all

realms of the impossible, across a sidereal

twenty fold, will stimulate the orchard-
ist, and make the valley what it should
be, an Immense fruit farm. It is quite
probable that the big hotel will be built
in Idlewilde this summer, and certain
that Hood River will be advertised as
it never was before. There will be
many cottages put up, and the summer
visitor will be numerous. As a result,
Hood River will become well known,
its agricultural resources" appreciated
and the possibilities of its water power
understood. A little public spirit and
united effort will do much to speed us
on the way. The prospects are bright,
and cheered by hope and armed with
faith in the most beautiful portion of
Oregon, let each one do all he can in
making -known our resources and as
sisting in our growth.
The Oregonian is out in a brand new
dress, is printed on the big new press,
and is clean, neat and attractive. Be
sides this, it is printed in the big new
building, the finest newspaper office on
the coast. We welcome the new order
of things, the readable print above all,
since the old type was rapidly convert
ing its readers into chronic cases of oph
thalmia, but, yet we cannot but feel, in
picking up the paper,that it is not our
Oregonian.' It looks different and will
not fill the old niche untiljwe get ac
customed to the change. The big num
ber which was to have been printed
New Year's, was issued on the 19tb,
and sold for the regular price, which is
another change for the better. We
congratulate ourj big contemporary on
its deserved prosperity, and hope that
its circulation may increase as rapidly
as its energy and push deserves.

a little bent, with his eyelids grown
heavy, and crow's feet toward his tem

here and there among his brown hair,
with his forty-seven years, of which the
weariness was more conspicuous beside
that radiant and blonde erring.
Forty-seven years! How was it possi
ble? He felt his heart so palpitating,
full of tears as in youth! And he could
not comprehend how so much time had
passed; he could not persuade himself of
the incredible fact forty-seven years
paased without knowing Gemma.
For they had been acquainted with

the exquisite, vaporous grace of that
blonde girl, dressed simply in white, en

beard her father, a modest clerk in the
bank; a rather ridiculous little old man,
who, beside that divine apparition, slen
der in her robes of snow, made one think
of the gnomes of folk talej, always
crouching at tho feet of fairies.
Ah, weakness of hearts growing old!
That apparition was enough to shake all
the ideas of Luigo Marclu.3 concerning
matrimony, and as the old gnome, de
spite his absolute nullity, was an honest
citizen, incapable of resisting the assidu
ities of the director to hia pretty daugh
ter, the suitor had been greatly pleased
with the consent of that little maiden of
18, that beautiful creature, that blonde
being, to become his wife. Now he
trembled with joy. Ilis eyes were misty
