the report t lint the 'war department,
because of possible trouble with Spain
has been making inquiries of the
trunk line railroads running to the
gulf coast and along the southern sea
board as to their facilities for moving
war supplies, It can be stated that the
only Inquiry made during the past
year by the war department on this
Mibjecl was one Intended to ascertain
the cost of executing an order made
about six weeks agpby the sccretaiy
of war looking to thoannuaLexchatiee
of the stations of troops, Of course
this had no warlike purpose whatever
for the same number of troops that
were added to the department of the
East were carried Went to take their
A fat denial is also given by the
best authority to the sensational story
that the state department warned
Spain against further outrogeoup
treatment of American commercial
agencies doing business with Cuba.
It is said that owing to radical or
ganlo dillerences In the systems of
customs collection pursued by Spain
and the United States and the absence
from the Spain system of what are
known in this country as post in
voices, American shipping 'lias been,
more or less embarrassed Vy deten
tions growing out of failure of ob

the Cuban custom system, but noth

strained relations between the two
governments on thisscorc.

the news received from bucre,

Further ad vices received today from

The four remaining days In which
to practice before the final game of
next Saturday, will bo most industrl
ously spent in practice by the univer
sity team. The management of the
football team urges that all who can
play football turn out every evening
on tho university campus that a
strong second team may bo selected
every evening for a practice game
with the first team. These practice
games are what is needed to satisfac
torily develop our team and also to
fortify and strengthen our line-up.
The old saying "Practice makes per
feet1' Is especially applicable In this
Instance. Those who fall to asslsst In
the development of the team by prac
tice games, need not feel so despond
ent, melancholy and discouraged If
our team meets with defeat next Sat
urday. Each player should realize a
sense of individual responsibility In
the success of the team and bo Influ
enced accordingly. Captain Olinger
and Miiuager I. II. VanWlnklc are
proving themselves the right men In
tho right places. They are laboring
Industriously with the team arid what
may be accomplished by the team In
the tournament may be attributed
largely to their Individual wo'rk.

WHAT THEY IJELIEVE.
we believe our cause Is a just one
and shall continue to believe so until
the evidence Is produced to the contrary.
We believe that'ther single gold-
standard Is not bimetallism.
Wo believe that tho gold standard
will bring the same kind of prosperity
that It has brought Egypt, Italy,
Turkey, England and others.
All who believe that tho countries
just enumerated,, are prosperous and
arc enjoying the fruits or their, labor
should continue to support, the gold
standard, and If they do not, than we
kindly solicit their support fok bi
metallism. That the price of wheat and hors
have gone up ye readily admit, but q
ask who Is benefited?
Arc the producers of tlicsc cumodl
ties benefited? It Is readily seen that
neither producers nor yet tho masses
of the consumer are madcto prosper by
the rise. But on tho contrary, every
laborer Is forced to pay aoro for what
he buys with no corresponding In
crease for Ills labor cor yet nn Increase
Wo alio admit that freight rates
hayegouo up, and yet the business
men of Salem and other cities arc not

tention to orga.nlzo In opposition to
railroad and other corporations.
A majority of these same business
men supported the corporation candi
