I The quarrel between Admiral Sampson and Admiral Schley, of the navy, is not only disgusting: it is pitiful. Both are worthy old gentlemen: both are brave men. But it hap pened when Ceryera s fleet left San tiago harbor. Sampson was making a tour of inspection and was ten miles away. Schley promptly sunk Cervera’s fleet and Sampson made the mistake of sending a dispatch announcing the fact without men tioning Schley's name. Sampson so much regretted that he was not present: he had waited for weeks and then missed the fight. He regretted this so much that he became envious and omitted Schley’s name in his dispatch. This fact pre cipitated a row. And now these white headed old men are abusing ea -h other like thieves. It is pitiful that envy and jealousy can carry worthy men to such extremes.

Mr. Ball, representing the American Type Founders’ Co., was in the city last Saturday and made purchase of the Val ley Transcript plant, which Mr. Snyder had stored in tbe Odd Fellows’ build ing. The type in the cases was all dumped in a barrel and shipped for re casting into new faces. The imposing stones were too heavy to pay to ship, and no local printing office desiring to buy, they were smashed into smithereens with a heavy hammer. Likewise the Maun press, which consisted of a large cylinder, filled with sand, designed to roll on a long frame from end to end, each roll printing a paper, was also found unsalable and worthless to ship, and was converted into kindling wood and old iron. The job presses and cases were shipped. An old newspaper man happening along and observing the housecleaning, remarked: "Well, I sup pose that’s the funeral?” And thereby hangs a tale. Mr. Snyder invaded this field with a third newspaper in 1894, moving his effects down by wagon from Dallas with as little stir as is attributed to the fabled Arab and his tent. Two years previous he went to Dallas from Astoria, and in his opening issues there he declared, “We are here to stay, at least as long as the ladder we shall en deavor to climb will stand on end.” It is a safe assertion that Mr. Snyder made no money at either place, along the strict lines of newspaper work. As a leverage for securing office, he may have made a success of what has other wise been a losing game. But his was not the original third newspaper to enter the field. The Lafayette Register, es tablished in 1881, remained in Lafayette eight years, when it was moved to Mc Minnville by Mr. Harding, this field then being occupied by the Reporter, established in 1870, and the Telephone, established in 1S86. Messrs. Heath and Harding soon saw that the field was too narrow for three papers, and effected consolidation Feb. 1st, 1889. Then Sny der broke over the line about five years later, and after a five years’ struggle, was tricked out of the little business he had. The demand for newspapers in McMinnville today is no greater than when Harding and Heath consolidated, though the two older papers have had a natural and steady growth, as they have merited it. In the foregoing, which is true as gospel, there is a clear lesson for news paper men in choosing a field. There is also a lesson to be found for business men. Don’t allow yourself to be im posed upon under the plea of “treat all alike.” Advertising is a necessity, yet it is a matter of discrimination as well. Do you get the same service? should be the question. The thorough business community, and there are many exam ples in the east, and a few in the west, does not encourage those ven tures of which it feels no need. They realize that more than enough of any thing, as justified by the community’s needs, is a detriment, and they set about seeking for those things which they have not and shotiln have. McMinnville has one college. She does not need another. Yet there is as much need for two, as there is of a third newspaper. Portland is another example. Two dailies fill the field, and the repeated attempts to es tablish others have signally failed. The two give good service and the patronage justifies it. CtnarA nt Equalisation.

Evidence Not Sufficient. The preliminary examination of wit nesses in the case of the State of Oregon vs. Ed Duclos, of the Webfoot neighbor hood, charged with cutting, mutilating and torturing an auimal on July 26th, was heard before Justice J. M. Pugh at the court house on Monday, There were six witnesses for the state, The defense introduced no evidence. James Shipman, the prosecuting witness, testi fied that he turned his cows into the highway about seven o’clock in the morning in good condition, and next saw them about 4 in the afternoon, in very bad condition. They were punched full of holes. There were five holes in one, two in auother, and five in a third cow, which was lying in a ditch, and ap parently with a broken hip. At the lime of the examination the cow was still living, but could not stand. Dan iel Gubser testified that he was working near his house about nxo’clock, and heard Duclos hollering and hissing his dog at some stock, and then heard him pounding as if fixing some fence. Next day he saw' the cow and examined her as to how badly she was hurt. She had four or five wounds—one more severe than the rest, on the thigh, which had bled considerable. By carefully exam ining and lifting it, he was satisfied that the limb was broken. The whole ham was swollen and the wound on the sur face looked as if it had been shot with a revolver, or prodded with some sharp instrument like a pitchfork. He said on cross examination that he was certain it was Duclos’ voice he heard, because he was often hollering, and no one else in the neighborhood hollered like him. Lynn Gubser also heard the sicking of the dog, and heard Shipman’s cowbell ring, and also the hammering, at about 11 :30 o’clock. Mr. Ausbe was passing abcut that time with a load of lumber and passed the injured cow in the road. She was barely able to get out of the road as he slackened his team in passing. He saw Duclos a few minutes afterwards. Miss Alma Hewitt testified that about the same time she was riding her wheel along the road in the direction of Day ton, and passed Duclos, followed by his dog, which was panting. Duclos climbed he fence in the direction of his house, having come from the direction of the cattle, which were passed a little further on. She noticed that some of tbe cows were bleeding. H. M. Lambert saw the wounded cattle next day. (At this point attorney for defense objected to w’liat he called dragnetting the complaint to cover three cows when only one was al leged as injured, and was sustained.) He was in the neighborhood about the time hollering was heard, and also heard swearing, such as "damn it,” in the di rection of Duclos’ house. He stepped up on the church steps, which enabled him to look over into the depression in the road where the cattle were, and saw a man he believed to be Duclos. Thus ran the evidence. Argument followed, R. L. Conner speaking for the state, and J. J. Spencer for the defendant. The justice decided that while the fact of in jury was established, the evidence did not connect Mr. Duclos sufficiently with the crime to justify binding him over to tlie grand jury and he was set at liberty. Quite a number of spectators were pres ent from the neighborhood, and the be lief seemed quite general that Duclos bad committed the injury. Ouu Dollar if paúl iuadvauee, Single numbers five cenia.
