RALLY Rf9WD THE FLAG.
Rights of the American People
ALASKAN FRONTIER PUSHED BACK
Great Britain Has Acquired a Strip
o.ne Hundred Miles Wide In the
Poreupine Eistrict-Advancing To
ward Tide Water by Leaps and
Bounds-Time For Action.
The servility and cringing of the Re
publican administration to Great Brit
ain have arosed even the Washington
Post to protest, and this is what it
says: "We make our compliments to
Mr. George Miller, attorney at law,
Eugene, Or. Mr.. George Miller seems
to be the kind of a man we need aloug
our frontier, especially that which
touches British America. We need
ibont T5,000 of him, stationed in small
detachments at very brief intervals
*nd so equipped as to be able to shoot
dowxi British flags instead of resorting
to the comparatively respectful meth
od adopted by Mr. Miller.
"We hav e needed such men in large
*umbers for some years past. We need
them more and more urgently with
each new demonstration of the Anglo
ilaniac policy of our government, with
each new modus vivendi and each ad
ditional recrudescence of the high
joints. We have been dwelling in an
atmosphere of affectionate internation
al gush, under cover of which British
encroachments and American groveling
have gone steadily along, with gov
ernment approval on either side. Eng
land has buried our seal fisheries rights
In the tomb we call the high joint com
mission, she has acquired a slice of our
Alaskan territory about the size of
the state of Rhode Island In the name
of a modus vivendi, she has resur
rected, with the eager assistance of
our state department, the long dead
and thrice dishonored Clayton-Bulwer
treaty of 1850, she has put our whole
official establishment under a spell of
flunkeyism, and we have received in
return for all this the banqueting of a
few American tradesmen and politi
cians, some inexpensive guff in the
London newspapers and a puddle or
two of British slobber, signifying noth
"But the Amern=n people ought to
have something to say to this. Their
rights are at stake. In the Porcupine
district, where our frontier was pushed
back 100 miles, Americans by the thou
sand were expatriated against their
wills, to their shame and indignation.
'And now we have from the Skaguay
News an account of the British aggres
sion and systematic insolence which
provoke.d Mr. George Miller to check
the marchl of Englnrnd's pirate flag last
sweek. It will repay perusal:
"'The question which bids fair to
assume international proportions as

todW fth the mass of sentiment in
favor of the man who hauled down the
flag. On this strip of land, whieh the
.United States has occupied undisputed

Canadian officials have gradually en
croached, unrestrained by the Ameri
"'By leaps and bounds the Canadian
customs house advanced toward tide
water-from Tagish to Bennett, then
to Log Cabin and lastly to the sum
mit- and when the customs ensign of
Canada was hoisted at Skaguay it is
small wonder that some John Brown
would not wait for the action from
Washington and cut down the flag.'"
Up,: the whole, ft was well he didn't
wait for "action" from Washington.
Had he done so the British flag would
have moved proudly on to tide water
.without let or hindrance. Action from
Washington, when it interferes with
any of England's schemes, has not been
a feature of our iaational policy since
Cleveland trod upon the advancing
foot and called, "Stop thief!" in a tone
that made Great Britain gasp.
What we want and must have, unless
we propose to surrender everything
that England covets, is action of the
kind Mr. George Miller gate us at
Skaguay. We want just such men all
along the line-want them armed not
only with good guns, but with the
knowledge that a few millions of fight
ing Americans are behind them. They
cannot too soon meet this insolent
British encroachment with the shot
that will lead to a rehabilitation of our
frontier and our self respect.

FOR WORLDWIDE PEACE.
Justice Brewer Thinks England and
America Can Bring It About.
Unless David Josiah Brmver, associ
ate justice of the United States su
preme court, is too sanguine in his pre
dictions the day is near when there
will be no more war and all disputes
between nations will be settled by ar
bitration. Justice Brewer believes that
the two countries in whose power it
lies to accomplish this desirable result
are the United States and Great Brit
ain. The Anglo-Saxon nations should
act In concert, according to the learned
justice, in bringing the rest of the
world to a proper appreciation of the
horrors of war.
"These are the two nations, the Unit
ed States and Great Britain, that have
been more -conspicuous in war than
any other, and it Is natural that they
should be foremost in the efforts at
peace. I believe their efforts will be
crowned with the glory of success and
that they will bring about settlement
by arbitration." So reads a portion of
a recent address by the justice.

Britain in order to further the pence of
the world it is interesting to note that
many Britons hold the same opinion.
Last year a number of prominent Eng
lishmen called into being what - they
term the Atlantic union. This is a non
political, nonpartisan organhzrtion,
formed with the purpose of drawing
together people from the United States
and those from Great Britain and its
colonies. It is to strengthen the bond
of union by ties of personal friendship
among Individual members. The At
lantic union is social and does not con
cern itself with the greater matters of
International politics. It hopes to at
le~ ends bilaarc
as private hsiait uthe giving o
semipublic functions, like dinners, re
ceptions and visits to places of historic
or artistic interest.
Much progress has already been
made by the union in England, and
knowledge of it Is spreading on this
side of the water. Among the English
members are a number of prominent
men, such as Dean Farrar, Dean Hole,
the Rev. Dr. Stopford Brooke, Lord
Coleridge and Sir Michael Foster. The
late Sir Walter Besant was a member
of the executive counciL.

TO NAME THE TRUXTUN.
Descendant of Famous Naval Oicer
Will Christen Ier Namesake.
To Miss Isabelle Truxtun of Norfolk
has been given the honor of conferring
her name on a vessel of the United
States navy. Miss Truxtun will smash
the usual bottle of champagne over the
bow of the torpedo boat destroyer
Truxtun, which is nearing completion
at Sparrow Point, .ld. She will do
this by virtue of her direct descent
from Commodore Truxtun, the distin
