GENERAL CHAFFEE EXPLAINS.
4. General Chaffee'wroto lnl letter of
Instruction to one of his subordinates:
I Mbtf 3JI the time thought that we do
not mrelate the fact that we , are
deaMng with-people wrhose character
Is deceitful1, .who are absolutely hostile
to the white race, and who' regard
life as of little value, and, finally j who
wilt not submit! to our control unitil ab
eolutely defeated and whipped into such
a condition. It Ss to our Interest to dis
arm these people. -and to keep them dis
armed., and e7n means to thai end is
advlsabler"- -;.f, ' i
The remarks olj General Chaffee testi
fy to bis common sense. The Filipinos,
being teas Intelligent than white people,
continue their resistance after t has
becoraa futile They; cease to r be . sol
diers to beccme brigands. It Is neces
sary, therefore, to glve te FlBpinosr a
sharper tewsort than whHe men would
need. They must be- 'wh!pped Into
submiswion" even oa the Apaches were
and a other Indlart tribes have been.
General Chaffee has fought Indians.
Hence It dd not tike him long to ap
preciate the situation, in the Phillp
ptnes, eepectaily In Samar. .-'.
An antl-lmperiaiUt paper says of this
instrucion that jt is aa order 'to ex
ternykrUe" people because Uvey are
deceittur-ha 4s, therwlll not dis
close to invaders the places where th?y
keep thefr rm.t rwl 4hat to th
arm "Genera Chaffee says any means
Is noniy admissible, but advisable.
Of course, killing everything over ten
Is one such means. General Chaffee,
saya the paper, "may himself . be
brought before a court-martial for giv
ing such bloody Instructions. ; ' V i

aspereions and to rave, a construction
given his plain words which they'do not
bear. General Chaffee is helpless. He
cannot reply to the fire in the rear of
which he is the obJtct. perhaps he
summons philoephy to bis aid and con

MR. FURNISH AT, HOME.
An old soldier living in the Eastern
part of Marion county heard the var
ious Democratic slanders' about the
general character f W. J. Furnish,
Republican candkfaes for 'Governor,; so
he'wTote to Hon. John S. Gurdane, of
Umatilla, county, old "Honeat JohOi"
about the iatter, and the; following
anawer received by him til commended
to tbe ; careful perusal of Statesman
readers: I . ; ;. ; f :-i
'. " f . ; f "Pendleton; Qre tMay eth. 1902,
My Dear Old Friend: , I was. very
much pleased this enomiag when I got
your letter out Of . the postofflce-
had thought some of writing to you
upon 'the very oubject that you write
about, that is, in regard to Mr. Furnish
for Governor. - . ' , . rs i ; .
"Now, George, I want to say tbat he
is a very fine and worthy man and
worthy of any min's support for Gov-
ernor. x sir tms zrom personai ac
quaintance with htn for several, yeara
and having business with him. I know
of several cases here . where he , has
gone down Jn bis pocket and given men
money to save their homes from being
sold toy the sheriff, and In one case
alone he gave John F. Hill, of Helix
postofflce, in this county, $1500 to save
bis borne and did not know , at that
time that he would ever, get a cent
back. Mr. Hill 1a a very strong Demo
crat, but today he 1s riding the county
working, for Mr. Furnish. . . j
There la an ofd soWer here by the
naime of Thomas E. James thafls send
Ing out a story of something that Mr.
Furnish said or that ; he clainrs that
he said some years ago about the old
soldiers. Now, 1 want to say to you
that; I am a member of the Post, and
as an old O. Ay. R. man I wM say that
i oon - oeueve ne ever saia any sucn
thing as; James has reported he said;
cor Mr. furnish Is too much of a gen
tleman to cnake remarks ; about bis
worst enemyv ; - 4- ' - ": , i
We expect to give, Mr. Furnish
about 800 majority in this. county. The
county is about 300 Republican; but we
will get quite a Jot of Democrats for
Mr- Furnish, and I ask you as a friend
and an old comrade fo do' all you can
In your power to elect Mr. Furnish, for
I will give you my mord of honor you
will never regret It, for I knowwhat
I am taJklrrg about. It would be
shame to elect a Democratic Governor
of this state now and turn out all the
Republicans from the offices In the
state that the Governor has the ap
pointing of, such as Superintendents
of the. Penitentiary, .SoMiers- Home,
and ' other positions . now held by
the Republicans and have them re
placed "by Democrats would make
me sick at heart ' and also to have
those Democrats working two i years
from now against us to elect a Demo
cratic President. 1 tell you, Mr. An
dersonj I can ixrt crtand K; we nrust
elect Mr. (Furnish. ' . - : '
feel Interested in this election, for
you know that Oregon fires the first
gun of all the Mates in elections, and
if we can send .the gfad -tidings rolling
back over the prairies' that Dregwi has
again upheld, the Adinlnlstr, yon, and
gone . Republican ft wIU 'be a saving

MORE THAN. HALF LIE
For a lie which is half the truth is-
ever the greatest ofvliea t
Since a lie which Is a a lie may b
met aud fought outright.
But a lie which is part a truth is a;
k W. .A. Wann, candidate on the Dem
ocratic ticket for Superintendent; of
Public Instruction, has been making the
statement in bis public speeches" that
140 books are needed in order to take
a, child through the grammar gradas.
n the public schools. He has been car
rying about with him the list of books
adopted by the School Commission, eg.
gregatlng 140 different books, and hold
ing up this long list and pointing toMt
as the official evidence .to support his
It Is true that "there are 140 books
on the list. This 1s the truth that
supports, the inference' which' he geeks
to convey to the effect that a parent
must-buy 140 , books In order to get
one of his children through the gram?
mar grades.,.'"-: -..."
But witness the lie, which Is all a
ne. -.V--' y. ;
ONLY TWENTY OF THESE
BOOKS ARE ACTUALLY USED IN
THE GRAMMAR GRADES, or neces
sary to be secured by the parent. The
other .129 are for supplemental reading.
Theyi raay be bought by - the district
for the school library. They are never
bought -by the parents. , - . ;
Does Oregon want such a man for
Superintendent of Public Instruct nT
, Do, the voters. Republican r Dem-
ocraticv intend to cast their ballots for
a man who will use the truth that is
more than half a lie, leaving the infer
ence that if he were elected this whole
thing, Wotild be corrected, and there
would b fewer books tb buy?
'. Wouldn't he be a fine man to elevate
to that office?
SEE HERE, MR CHAMBERLAIN!
Mr. ChiUiiberiaJn makes some sort of
a claim ' that the Oregon Constitution
is being violated iq the paymnt of
salary and f?es .to the State officers
over and above the amounts specified
in the Constitution. Nov,, a number
of these acts were passed during th?
administration of Governor Pennoyer,
and abao w hile- Mr. Chamberlain; was
Attorney General.'- Certainly the reg
ular appropriation i bills ; carried ; tha
items for all of them. ; There liave been
it r. . .rtinMt ntWiori to sjdc Mr.
Oh-mberlaln. if these laws areuncon-
stitutlonal. why. as Attorney General,
the legal advisor of the State
gon, he did not take some steps
ventfbis money from being drawn out
of the Treasury In violation
Constitution of the State ? , . '
There is a vast difference between
Mr. Chamberialn, a public official, and
Mr Chamberlain, .candidate for PUD
lie office. It is as great an appeal as
Ithe one from ,Phll1p drunk to Philln
sober." ' - "
