It took an English jury only fifty minues to find Sir
Roger Casement guilty of high treason, and about one
minute longer for" the judge to sentence him to death. In
this country it woud have been five or six months before
the case would have been called, and it would have taken
from a week to six of them to have secured a jury. Then
instead of trying the case in one day it would have taken
at the least a month. In this case considering the great
work Sir Roger has done for the world and especially
England, it would be a nice thing for the government to
temper justice with mercy, and commute the sentence.
Sir Roger is intensely patriotic, but his love for Ireland
is greater than his love for the English nation as a
whole. In his address before his sentence he said that
loyalty was a crime only in England. He might have
added that just now disloyalty is one of the gravest of
fenses, and yet England has nothing to gain by executing
the death sentence on him.

maniac in all that he does, and the farm life is too slow
Once accustomed to citv ways the farm ceases to be at
tractive. The rising with the sun does not appeal to one
who is in the habit of going to bed at that hour. Follow
ing a plow all day on foot somehow does not seem near
so delightful as putting a foot on a pedal and turning on
the gasoline while sitting on the cushioned seat of a joy
Picking the incarnadine berries from the dew-laden
vines before breakfast listens nice but in practive does
not appeal to the man who can, lying in bed, press a but
ton and have the same berries nicely washed and culled
brought to him in bed along with plenty of rich cream
that he did not have to get from a cow himself.
The little country gathering, where everybody knows
everybody else, and which is indeed one of the most en
joyable occasions to him who has not been spoiled and
mentally diseased by being innoculated with the city bug,
is to him an unmitigated bore.
The having to go to the pump for water instead of
turning a faucet in any room in his house and getting it
fresh and colder than from the moss-covered bucket, does
not appeal to his esthetic tastes.
The little amateur exercises at the school house so
dear to us older folks, so filled with the most delightful
memories, are to the city dweller insipid, dreary, unbearable.
Maud Muller with her graceful ankles bare and brown
is a 'scrap of paper.' We have come to a crisis where acts
must follow words. While we have the greatest sympathy
with the problem of the Mexican people and their desire
for self government, we have come to the point where we
must insist that the lives and liberty of our people shall
be safe from the depredation of Mexican bandits."

Before proceeding to skin the Mexicans might it not
be a good plan to give Carranza a shave? He seems to
imagine ne is someining 01 a moaern samson, ana 11 may
be he suspects his strength lies in his whiskers. If he
was shaved he might discover that instead of being a
Samson he was only the weapon Samson used against the
Phillistines. Someone expressed it epigrammatically
this way:
"Jack eating too ripe cheese did say
Like Samson I my thousands slay.
Yes, said a wag, indeed you do
And with the selfsame weapon too."
Washington. June 30. The biggeat
military appropriations in the history
of the nation have already been
aside, or are about to be set aside, by
this session of congress. Congressmen,
pointed out today that instead of tho
quarter of a billion dollars customar
ily appropriated at each session for
military purposes the present session
will chalk up a record of from thro
fifths to three-fourths of a billion.
Leading expenditures as compared
with previous appropriations are:

The Oregonian in discussing the Mexican situation
and what it calls the refusal of the present administra

frank. If every one of its assertions are true, they are
true not only for the three years of the present adminis

Taft. Instead of speaking of three years of watchful
watiing it should if it wanted to be absolutely fair include

hungry seeks its mother's dugs ami no matter how thin
and poor she may bo from its persistent draining of her
vitality, her strength, which she gives up to so freely and
generously, it but butts tho harder, careless of results so;
long as its own appetite is satistied. It is all wrong, but
it is tho existing fact just tho same.
If the city man could bo forced to live in tho country
and to earn his living on a farm he might bo weaned from
his city idols. He might learn the many compensations,
the cleaner living, the more healthful atmosphere, the
real joys of life instead of its false ones and in time learn
to love and appreciate them. As this cannot bo done it is
safe to say the back to tho farm movement will not ma

it. Its strongest advocates are like the sign posts on the
highway which point out the roads but never travel

that he's as dead as Adam's ox. And if a
