It is evident that the scow saloon at
Viento contributed to the death of
Daniel McDonald. It might be well
to inquire if there ia no law to reach a
man who is dealing out liquor by the
drink without license on a river scow.
When a liquor saloon pays a license to
the county or to a town corporation it
is privileged to deal out the stuff that
will intoxicate and take away a man's
senses, and the man who gets drunk at
a licensed saloon and falls ofT a bridge
and is killed has no one but himself to
blame. The saloon is licensed to kill if
i s patrons choose to kill themselves
directly or indirectly by Imbibing too
much at its bar. But a man who can
evade the license laws of two states by
flouting his saloon in the middle of the
Columbia river should be held respons
ible when a customer drinks too freely
at his lar and loses his Jife iu conse
quence. " '
Farmers of our valley will need to
(et in and hustle the coming season.
CJood times are coming their way. For
tune will knock at farmers' doors where
she has been a stranger for years. Be
prepared for her, for it may be a long
time before she comes around again to
knock at some of our doors. We will
have a larger population than usual
the coming summer and all will want
to eat. Make an effort to grow some
thing the market will demand. Grow
enough clover and timothy to feed
your own stock through the winter
and have some to sell. Farmers should
quit hauling hay from town; haul it
the 'other way. Plant a good lot of
vegetables; look after the small fruits,
and let the cannery have something to
-to. - There is not a farm in the valley
but can be made to pay more than ex
penses the coming season. Irrigation
ditches have made this possible.
The Oregon regiment is now in the
field against the jisurgents In the
Philippines. Oregonians will be more
than ever interested in the dispatches
now. That our boys will give a good
account of themselves, if called
upon to fight the wily Filipinos in
their jungles, no one at home has any
The creation of Wheeler county by
the legislature makes Fossil the county
ent of the new county. Wheeler coun
ty Is 54 miles long and 30 miles wide
and its territory is taken from Gilliam
and Grant counties.
From Manila.
We take the following extracts from
letters received by Mrs. Geo. P.Ciowell
from her son, Clarence English, of Co.
E, Second Oregon, in the Philippines.
'J he letters are dated Dec. 10tu and
Jan. 9th:
The apples which were wrapped in
paper all came in good shape, while
those that were not wrapped were some
f them spoiled. A good many of the
boys got tioxes of apples, and we all
have lots of good things now. , -
1 have secured some fine views with
my camera and will send some home.
We are having flue weather here
now, like our Oregon summers, very
cool at night. This morning (Dec.lOth)
Kome of the boys felt chilly and were
glad to put on their coats for awhile.
I am getting along very well with
my Spanish; can talk quite a little aud
understand more than I can speak.
The hoys from Hood River are all
well. One of the Dlmmick boys vis
ited us today.
I went with a friend, the other day,
to visit a new club formed by the best
class of Filipinos. They are all trying
to learn English, and I am going to
send over some of our best foot ball and
base ball men to teach them the Amer
ican games. They are crazy to learn
them. In fact, they are wild to learn
anything that is American and tell me
they want the islands all annexed to
the United States as a state.'
The new recruits are buying up all
the curios and it is hard to get any
thing in that line now.
The government Is raising most of
the Spanish ships that were sunk by
Dewey at Cavite;
8ome of the boys off" the Monadonock
visited our company last night and
sung Bongs and danced jigs for further
orders. The Oregon regiment is well
liked by the entire navy aud also by
the regulars. i
Jan. 9th. We are expecting trouble
now with the insurgents. They will
not be satisfied until we give them a
good thrashing, and we will do that in
n hurry.
Sergeant Lee Morse was shot by mis
take by one of M company's boys on
an outpost guard on the night of the
Bill of January. He died instantly.
The Filipinos had just been trying to
break into the magazine, and the
guards had fired several shots at them,
wounding one in the leg. Morse and
his captain went out to see what was
going on, and Morse jumped down oft'
the wall right In front of a sentry, who
fired and Morse fell dead. It Is too
bail, but the sentry can not be blamed.
I had a great experience with a cen
tipede the other day. I had my shoes
on, witli no socks, and they were un
laced. I felt something crawling in
my shoe and looked in at the ankle
and saw a centipede crawl up and look
out, then crawl around my ankle and
clear around my instep, and then nut
through the-lacing space in front onto
the floor, where 1 put my foot on him
nod held him until I got a pair of
tweezers with which I caught him. I
now have him prenerved in alcohol.
JCvery nne'near me yelled to me to pull
off my shoe, but 1 kept still and watch
ed him till he crawled out. I did not
get excited. The centipede was about
three inches long.
Everything Is becoming American
ized except the insurgents, and we'll
fix them in a hurry when we once get
at them. :-
First Oregon Boy Killed
Washington, Feb. 22. Gen Otis has
cabled as follows from Manila under
this date:
The following casualties In the in-
trenchments were caused yesterday by
the men exposing themselves to the
enemy's fire: - . 1
First California Hergeant Frank N.
Turton, wounded slightly; Private Jas.
P. Cassldy, killed.- .
The following were killed during a
reconnaissance tills morning in the vi
cinily of San Pedro Maccarti; First
Washington Private Joseph H. Card
ington, Christian E Horn, H. D. Haz
ard. Corporal W. B. Tucker, seriously
Second Oregon Killed, EDWIN
Three men of the Flist Nebraska
were wounded.
The Portland Telegram of Feb. 22d
Edwin W. Hampton, the first Ore
gon soldier to be killed In action in the
Philippines, was a son of John Hamp
ton, a furniture mover, who lives at
397 San Rafael street.
The deceased was 20 years old last
October, and bad lived in Portland
since he was 4 years of age. His father
moved here from Nebraska 16 yeais
ago, and has raised his family in East
Portland, where the dead soldier was
well known and very popular.
The first Intimation of the death of
his son that Mr. Hampton bad was
when a Telegram reporter called at bis
house at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
The blow was a sad one to the father
and his five children. They had a let
ter from the son last Saturday,! n which
he said be was well and as well con
tented as one could be in Manila. He
said that he would like to be at home,
but was willing to remain there as long
as his services were needed.
The news was doubly surprising to
Mr Hampton, from the fact that Co.
H had been on duty at the custom
house. When he read In the newspa
pers that the Oregon boys had been or
dered to the front, he consoled himself
with the thought that the company
his boy was in would not have to go.
He recently sent some Spanish flags
and several curios home to his father,
which are highly prized by the Hamp
ton household.
The Soldiers Monument.
Hon. W. L. Bradshaw, of The Dalles,
has been appointed manager of the
soldiers monument fund for this county
and has appointed committees to go io
the citizens in person, to solicit funds to
erect the monument to ine brave ur
egou boys who lost their lives in the
recent war. 1 he following extract
from the Oregon tan, of a short time
ago, will give a clear idea of the work
ings or the monument committee:
"To the citizens of Oregon: When
our country demanded the services of
citizens in upholding the honor of the
flag, none responded more promptly or
more earnestly than did the young
men of Oregon. As I hey marched
away they were our pride, and carried
with them our love ana admiration.
When the regiment, returns many who
marched away will not be In the ranks;
they died in theservlceof their country.
"Let us at once erect a monument in
memory of those who have died. Let
us have it completed so that when the
poldiers return they can assist in the
ceremonies of dedication.
"The soldiers' monument committee
has been organized to take this work
in hand. A leading citizen from each
county in t lie state has been placed on
the committee. Each county will be
under the management of the commit
teeman from that county.
"It is the aim of the organization to
make this work popular by placing the
subscription within the reach of all.
There will be a local solicitor In each
precinct or school district, selected by
the county committeeman, where per
sons can leave their name and cash
and have it forwarded to the secretary
of the committee. Each person con
tributing 25 cents will receive by mail
a copy of the monument edit ion of a
new unique history, well worth the
money. Everyone can afford to sub
scribe S cents for a worthy cause."
Hon. E. L. Smith has leen selected
by Judge Bradshaw to receive subscrip
tions from the citizens of Hood River.

Repeat the bloody story
Of Empire's tyranny.
Build mighty ships and cannon, -
Beat plowshares into swords.
Renounce your God for mammon
In loud defiant words.
Take np the White Man's Glory ;
Ye men of many creeds
What though your hands be gory'
With blood of savage breeds, ,
Call greedy motives Duty,
Delude the simple mind;
Let few divide the booty.
The mass with promise bind.
Take up the White Man's Glory, .
Thou nation strong and free,
Republican and Tory,
In name of Liberty; a
With "Maxim," "Krupp" and "Gatllng"
In rhythmic melody,
And musketry a rattling
Concordant harmony.
Take up the White Man's Glory .
In God's and Commerce's name
('Tis reconclllatory),
Heed not the blood and shame;
List not to piteous pleading
When son from mother parts.
Nor count the million bleeding,
Yearning, sorrowing hearts.
Take np the White Man's Glory,
Heed not the warning cry
Of statesmen wise and hoary,
Your duty is to die
In lands where fevers ravage;
Upon your head a ban,
: Redeeming soulless savage,
Half monkey and half man.

of humanity and culture which shall
make their life healthy, happy and
progressive, the well spring of an up
right, true cultured manhood and
womanhood and a willing, working,
watchful and faithful citizen." Harris.
We are glad to note that a great
many of our students have learned
that there is little time to waste, the
proof of this being the fact that a great
many are improving their time by
working right ahead upon some oue
or two chosen studies during vacation
Prin. Ailard handed each member of
the 8th grade a carefully condensed
outline for the final "review" iu geog
raphy, on Thursday last, in order that
they might be at work upon it during
the vacation.
Pupils have baen busy this week ex
amining aud comparing grade reports.
A fine crayon drawing of the Maine
was framed and hung in the school
building a few days since.
A number of light repairs are being
made in aud about the school buildings
this week.
That "cleanliness is next to eodli
ness" perfumes the very atmosphere of
the school building since Janitor
l tan a s latest raid.
The outlook for the 4th and 5th
grades is an extremely large attendance.
With open weatiier many pupils, of all
grades who were prevented from at
tending by inclemency or weather, will
return. '
Prin. Ailard received a "machete"
and Spanish pistol from bis brother,
D. ;. Ailard of Co. L, second Oregon
Vols., at Manila. They will be placed
in the Travers' Book aud Curio club

Cause of Germany's rise as a com
mercial nation is said to be due to
expert direction and thorough teaching.
While the Great Republic of the
West is teaching many useful things
to the old world, in the way of free
dom, educational advancement and
commercial progress, its influence is
being felt in other ways as well. Here
tofore we have been looked upon as a
nation whose chief aim was making
money, but now we are recognized as a
potent element in higher civilization
The press of Switzerland contain fre
quent and intelligent articles concern
ing our public school system, our col
leges and universities, our hospitals,
our asylums and those depending upon
public or private charity for support.
To these institutions are given the
highest praise. Much also has been
said in recent publications in the way
of praise about our public libraries. -
The purpose of the public school, as
seen in its origin and history, is intel
lectual culture, and those methods
can only have a strong and lasting
hold upon the public mind which best
promote it. However pleasing and
attractive the work may be, however
we may for the time command the
public ear, and listen delighted to its
praise, that system and those methods
alone must win la the end and enjoy a
lasting reputation which continue to
rend forth pupils with a higher intel
ligence, a better knowledge, a clearer
understanding and a more thorough
scholarship than their fellows.
