Wahiiiniiton, June 8 General Otis has been advised that it is tho wish of
the president that all arrangements be made to give the returning troops a com
fortable voyage and that tho'lk'st of care'he taken that no sickness break out
among them. Ho also said precautions would Ih taken not to load the transports
too heavily, so the troops will have nmple room.
The conclusions drawn by tho war department officials, concerning tho con
d t'ons in the Ppilippiuc, are thai tho insurgents are little more than a marauding
kind, which will continually decrease when tho men llnd that toe re is lifo and

How the State Duys Wood.
The penitentiary recently advertised
for 800 cords of body llr wood. Some
twenty odd bidders tendered wood at
prices from t'2.75 to $'.l. Tho asylum
also advertised for several thousand
cords of wood and got but few bidders.
The superintendent then was ordered to
buy thousands of cords "in the open
market." Tho advertisements contained
no speculations except that tho wood
lie of the variety called largo llr. Now
right there Is where there is a nigger in
the woodpile. There are as many kinds
and qualities of big lir as there are
methods of grafting the State of Oregon.
There is big lir cut from what is really
second growth timber. There is big llr
that is all heart wood, and other that is
half bark and half sap. There bf big'llr
of tho soft white variety not lit to burn
and only lit to make paer pulp or a
very joor kind of lumber. There is big
lir that is cut fiom fallen timber that Is
not lit to burn under an engine, will
hardyl got dry ami when it is dry makes
What tho state should suy in its ad
vertisements is that it wants tenders of
bids for "large body fir from standing
timber" and that would mean some
thing, and sap and bark and half grown,
half rotten fallen logs could not be
worked off on tho public by iiiiKTiipu
Ions wood syndicates or received by still
loss scrupulous politicians from their
To allow the supuriutoudoiit of an
asylum or state institution so much
margin for speculation or favoritism is
an open bid for robbing the taxpayer
and entering into all sorts of relations,
whore a $5 or it $20 gold piece may re
sult In accepting almoU anything in
the name of "big llr." On thousands
of cords of wood tho head of an institu
tion con not only make a. handsome
"dlvey," but wield a tremendous polit
ical in ilueuco among the people he fa
vors. As a further branch of this fast and
loo wuy of buying cord iwood, cortl
fiod check is required from all bidders.
Tliis throws the urwim of the whole
biisluiMd Into the hands of tho lily,
bunded, sidewalk jiolltlulaii, "who toils
not, neither does her spin," but ho can
give certified chocks, where tho timber
farmer, who gets out wood for a living,
hasn't got a pair of cortlllud suspenders.
Then to cap tho clinm of tho whole
job, the udvertlsuiuuut for bids uppaars
only in the ring org.iu, which is read al
most exclusively by persons who never
were guilty of nuking an honest livhig
in the world, and who will want to en
joy a salary ami a cinch on an official
position near tho throne in the next
world. There is not a wood ohoppor in
Oregon who reads such a paper, but
this is all in accord with tho present or
der of things, the purpose of which Is
to throw' the furnislilug of statu sup
plies, us far as possible, into tho hands
of the speculators.
