THE PRESIDENT'S LETTER.
President McKinley's letter of accept
ance of the nomination of the Republi
can party for the Presidency, will go in
to the archives of history as one of the
greatest of American state papers. Not
only is it received with favor by Repub
licans, but it commands the admiration
and respect of all people for its remark
ably keen, incontrovertible arguments
of the issues of the present campaign.
The paper is exhaustive and handles all
the issues now before the people in an
honest, straightforward manner that
stamps the man as worthy of his high
office and as tho foremost statesman of
the day. It makes clear to those in
doubt the questions that have been rais
ed and growing out of the fcfpanish-Amer-ican
war, instead of handling them for
base partisan purposes, as does his dis
tinguished opjonent. The Philippine
question takes up a large part of the
letter and is so ably handled that Mr.
Bryan's bogie of "imperialism" is com
pletely shattered. It is to be hoped
that all doubtful people will read the
Death of John Sailor.
The Medford Mail reports the death
at that place, by heart disease, of John
Sailor, an aged man who has been stop
pine in Medford since last fall. Death
occurred on September 8th. Deceased
was without means, but two kind friends
Tho3.' Collins and W. J. King, of Med
ford, gave him a Christian burial.
John Sailor was a bachelor 67 years
of age and a native of Clay county, Mo.
He was an old resident of Silver Lake,
this county, having lived there 23 yoars.
He was an -unassuming, lmnv.n and
kind-hearted man, and all who knew
him well will regret his death. It is
stated that one of his generous acts (at a
time when he was in better circum
stances) was the contribution ot $500 to
the sufferers at Silver Lake at the time
of the terrible fire on Christmas Eve,
Horace Mitchell, the Klamath stock
buyer, has been in Lakeview for several
days, and was suddenly called back to

While here he made several purchases,
and negotiated others, which will be
completed upon his return. Among the
purchases made were 150 head of cattle
from D. H. Hartzog, 150 from E. C.
Thruston and 65 head from Frank Duke.
These were all mixed stock cattle for
which he paid $25 and $26. The stock
are to be delivered between the 1st and
the 5th of October.
Deputy Postmaster Appointed.
George W. Johnson has been appoint
ed Deputy Postmaster of the Lakeview
Postoffice under salary, and will accept
the post on October 1st. Under the re

master Dick Wilcox immediately pro
ceeded to do. The appointment will no
doubt meet with the approval of all the
patrons of this office, as Mr. Johnson is
a courteous, obliging gentleman at all

... ...Popular Citizen Returns.
John McElhinney returned from San
Francisco last Sunday after an absence
of five and a half months, a greater part
of which time he passed in a hospital
and a sanitarium. Mr. McElhinney
went below to have his eyes treated, and
though one eye was removed entirely
and an artificial one put in its place, he
considers himself rather fortunate in hav
ing the sight of the other eye saved.
His eyes became affected from a nerioue
attack of erysipelas. Since leaving the
hospital Mc spent some time at the Al
truria Sanitarium, and came away from
there in perfect health. He says there
is no doubt of the great curative powers
of the waters at that resort, and he in
tends to spend at least a montli there
every year in the future. After leaving
there he stopped off at Red Bluff, Yreka
and other towns on hiswa home. Mc's
many friends are ulad to welcome him
home and to see him in good health once
W. P. Huff has leased from A. MeCal

Conditions in China and South
The latest regarding the Chine situation Is to the effect that Li
Hung Chang will probably le recognized by the Powers as peace commis
sioner, and has left Shanghai for Peking. The Empress Dowager and the
Emperor, with eight thousand troop as a guard, are now staying with a
Mongol Prince in Mongolia, 150 miles from Peking looking on nlently at
affairs in the Capital. The intention of Russia is not known. The Rus
sians are keenly pushing their interests. It is evidently her intention to
seize Manchuria, and she is seemingly intent to hold everything up to the
great wall at Shanghai-Kwan. The Japanese have ten thousand men in
China and occupt the whole north part of Peking. They have seized two
million taels of silver in the Board of Revenue. Ird Salisbury keeps his
policy a close secret. The conditions are uncertain to say the least, but
no sensational events are expected to develop.
Paul Krueger has fled to Portugal. He h nominally a prisoner guard
ed in the residence of the Portuguese Governor. Boer officials are not al
lowed to see him. Lord Roberts announces tha" President has re
signed all connection with the Transvaal. Ther. doubt now that'
the war in soutn Airica is pracimnny enueu. 'nt.u
