It ha already failed, utterly. It was of very short duration, and the Demo crats who took up! tw matter the mow rapldly and- proceeded to push it with the greatest Vigo are themot anx- .ziilou to hum rover now.

THE UNITED STATES ARMY, Discussion of the general staff bill proponed by Secretary Root, ha been heated, not to say. ugly In temper on the part of partisans of General Miles, says th New York Bun. Against the very able, and hlgh-miniied civilian who occupies the post . of Secretary of War the Miles party hurls the memory ' of Ms proweaM In the field, and no little sentiment against j reorganization . has jarii In the army itself, partly from sympathy for Miles and partly from Instinctive opposition to change, j - We can understand the existence of such o feeing In the army; but a mea sure so Important as the one In iu- tioh.shouM be conidered without pas sion. . h ' The leading military antagonist of KecreturyRoot'a plan.

' "The Germsuis' stiys Sir Charles Dllke In an article on the Armies of the rowers jin ; the AprH number of Mansey's Magazine, 'are not a martial 'people. But their jwrfect study and practice of things t military make them-probably tht most formidable fighting power in the world." Th great Eurorfan g'.'neraMhat fcl- lows Napoleon In history, Von Moltke, was a chief of staff, upun a plan which Se-retary Root has largely followed in the bill that is now before the Senate. We believe that Von Moltke and Schoflekl make heavier weight of au thority In favor oC the proposed sys tem than Miles and h'B friends .make against lt " . AN ABLE SECRETARY. The Secretary of State of . Oregon, Hon. F. I. Dunbar, has proven hirnetlf to be a.n ' exceptionally ' competent, faithful and valuable officer.

The drift of sentiment In the Demo cratic party seema to be In favor of milking an issue with. the npubllcar. on the question of the dlssltlon of the Philippines..- In adopting a police on that issue, however. .(Democrats must be prepared to say 4hat ff the power is entrust41 to them they . will give up the lhillpplne,' because they will be made to stand for the surrender of the Island when they refuse to ac cept the "civil government" policy out lined by the Republicans. It will not be sufTKIent for them to simply an tagonize the Republican party. They must h.ive a policy of their own and it must be something " tangible. Mobile Register. The Democrats of Oregon have out lined a policy that is plain and simple scuttle, and while! the IWnocratlc can didate for governor wont stand for It. yet . It Is the deliberate expression of th party after a day given to th per plexing question. Scuttle won't, work In Oregon, and the people will repudi ate the. Idea' of such a thing by -an enormous Vote ion June 2d. ' ' WANN ON EDUCATION. Something new in the way of cam paign addresses was, the speech of Prof. W. A.

The cry ing evil of the present fcchool system 1 too much cramming. For years I have earnestly protested against the cram ming machine called the public schools of Oregon. What -we should reason ably demand of children of the age of fifteen. Is that, they ahall be abie to read intelligently, to epel , correctly, to write a good hand, to use their own minds themselves, to count accurately. and to write a'good letter.

Since a large number of the children of farmers do not tave other adfvantages rhan the country schools, it Is plain that them woufd be the ones to fc-uffer by hi system and thus high schools and orivat academ ies would reap the advantage, as no one could be satlfle,l with 4 he work that Mr. Wann outlines for the eom rtun wchli.
