ion it is asserted Colonel Roosevelt has ready to follow
him to the wars, and states it is mostlv a Daner army. It
says of the ;U.8:'.2 men that make up a division. l,17o are
enrolled. 5.L'."0 on doubtful list and 25,407 are yet to be re
cruited. This leaves the Colonel, so far as his army is con
cerned, much in the fix of the boy who was chasing the
rat around a corn shock. A passer-by asked him what he
was doing? "Killing rats" was the reply as he chased
around the shock. "How many have you killed" asked
the stranger.
"Well, when I get this son-of-gun," was the reply as he
struck at it with his stick, "and two more, 1 will have

would it be to nlace them on the assessment roll? If the
Oregonian can show where the counties would be bene

It is probable the president's proclamation setting a
day for registration will be made public soon. Don't for
get that if you are 21 and not yet :?1 you must register on
the day fixed upon for the purpose by the president.
Proper notices will be given as to day and place, and all
you will have to do is to get yourself to the designated
point, for there will be officials there to explain just what
you are to do, and when you are to do it. As at present
understood, after registration those registered will return
to their homes and wait the subsequent selection. After
this there will be another wait until the call to the colors
comes, which it is understood will be early in September.
If you are subject to registration and too sick to attend
you must get some friend to attend for you and explain
why you did not show up.
At last the army bill has passed both houses of congress J
and is m the hands of the president where it will remain
but a short time, just long enough for him to write
"Woodrow Wilson" in the proper place and then the pre
liminary steps providing for an army of 11,000,000 men if
they are needed will be completed. At the same time it
is announced that owing to the fact the supplies have not
been assembled for taking care of the army, that the call
of the first unit of half a million will not be made until
September. This will give the men a chance to aid on the
farms and at other occupations until the rush of summer
and harvest is over. Then the whole number will be called
and the work of whipping those selected into shape will be
rushed to the limit.
In the multiplicity of street trouble the Capital Journal
in an editorial Wednesday got its wires crossed as to the
suit of John Albert against the ..ity, decided by the su
preme court in his favor. The oditoriaUmentioned'the
suit as being over Church street improvements, when it
was in fact over the work on Twelfth street. There has
been no suit over Church street.
. Those Britishers are foxy chappies. Now that it is pro

that they must be ?,0 years old before "coming of age."
They know but few women will apply under the age limit,

they will be so old they will not care two cents about the

A fleet of American destroyers is in an English har

Somehow the fraternal spirit that moved the kaiser's
men to making eyes at the Russian soldiers was not pro
foundly brotherly. When a Russian regiment refused to
come out and be hugged, a storm of asphyxiating gases
and a rain of shells broke loose over their position. Prus
sian affection is much like that of the cannibal who gave
his wife a hard and thorough beating before he cooked
her, because: "he loved her tender,"
The Liberty Loan calling for $2,000,000,000 means a
contribution averaging $20 for each person in the United
States. This would make Salem's proportion $:J50,000.
However as it is not a per capita contribution she will not
be called on for that much. For the total amount to be
raised to meet the costs of the war and the loans to the
allies, Salem's portion on a population basis would be
above a million dollars.
Hindenburg would like to start a drive, but the trouble

Let s keep our heads and do things sanely.
Excitement is indulged in vainly. Since
war clouds gathered o'er the nation, there's
been such frenzied agitation, so much of
useless noise and clamor, it gives a sane
