Resources and General j Characteristics. j This wonderful group of islands off the southeast coast of Asia, which will go down in history as the first compiest made by the American re public in the war of 1898, was discov ered bv Magellan in his first voyage around the world in 1320. There are nearly 1,200 islands in the group, and they extend in a northerly direction from near the north coast of Borneo to a point south of the Japanese island of Formosa. Their total area is estimated at 145,- 000 square miles, without including many of the smaller groups. The islands do not belong, of right, to Spain. Magellan, the discoverer, was a Portugese, and sought service under Charles V. of Spain because he was ignored by the court in his own country. By the bull of Pope Alexander VI of May 4, 1493, which was then uni versally recognized as law, the earth was divided into two hemispheres. All lands thereafter discovered in the eastern hemisphere were decreed to belong to Portugal; all in the western to Spain. The Philippines were well within Portugal's rights, but as the use of the log and the variation of the compass were unknown, an error of 52 degrees in longitude was made, and to Spain the islands were given on the basis of that error. The natives were wearing Chinese I silks, and were able to visit the main land in their own boats when they were discovered. .England first acquired the right to trade with Manila in 1789, when an English commercial house was opened there. Until recent years the Spanish de crees prevented any foreigner from visiting the interior. Race enmities and prejudices have been stirred up by the Spaniards in order to pravent a union of the people against their rule. Though situated in the equatorial region, the elevations of the moun tains give a range of climate that al lows the production of a great variety of valuable crops. Tobacco, sugar, liemp and rice are the chief staples produced. The swamps and rivers are infested with crocodiles and the dense woods with monkeys and serpents of many species. Rich deposits of gold are known to exist, but have been little developed. Severe earthquakes have shaken the islands in the years named: 1601, 1610, 1645, 1658, 1675, 1699, 1796, 1824,1852 and 1863. The last was exceedingly destruc tive. It threw down the fine stone bridge over the river Pasig at Manila and leveled 46 public buildings and 570 private houses, killing several hundred persons. Cock fighting is the national sport, the fighters being equipped with steel spurs. This diversion holds the same place of favor in the Philippines as bull-fighting holds in Spain. In the cool of the evening the society of the capital promenades, flirts and displays its toilets on the beach parade, and when the vesper bells ring all halt in their diversions to pray. Climatic conditions are those of the tropics, sultry, damp and drying weather throughout the year. The coolest months are November, December and January, as the islands lie on the north side of the equator The hottest months are April and May, but these months are com paratively dry. The typhoon, a kind of hurricane, sometimes visits portions of the islands and does great damage. One in Sep tember, 1865, destroyed much property in the cities and drove 17 vessels ashore at Manila. Many dialects are spoken by the natives, only a small percentage of whom know the Spanish. They are hospitable to strangers. In some districts bands of robbers infest the country, and pirates land on the shores and commit depredations. The national drink is a strong brandy made from the palm. It is very intoxicating, and the government tries to hold a monopoly of its sale. There are probably 200,000 Chinese on the islands. They have a virtual monopoly of trade and manufactures. Professor Jagor, the German traveler, says: "Usually the people live to. gether unmarried, because they can not pay the expenses of the ceremony." Government school teachers in the country districts receive $2 a month and " fiud" themselves. Bats, called panikes, are found in the interior with wings five feet from tip to tip. Flying monkeys also abound. One-fourth of all children born die "Hew to the Line. Let the Chips Fall Where they May." within two weeks after berth from the effects of impure air and the filthy habits of the people. The natives are so strongly attached to their native heath that it is ditlicult to induce one of them to leave. OUR "HUMANE" AVAR. This is the first war in the history of the world that was ever carried on in the name of humanity. The civilized world stands in wonder at the spectacle of a nation fighting with no motive of acqui sition or conquest, but solely that their fellow beings might enjoy their inherent right to freedom. — It. U. Ingernoll. A certain wise man once said that honesty is the best policy, and if so it it is time we were beginning to apply the policy to the present controversy If humanity was the only considera tion the rupture would have come months ago, or not at all. If this was humanity's conflict, we would not now be maintaining a blockade that is starving a thousand non-combatants a day, nor would it have required the assassination of 2ti(i sailors to bring it about. Not much. Whatever construction may be put upon the situation by the wording of the President's message, the bare fact remains that the destruction of the Maine was the cause that made the American people rise tip and with a mighty voice demand that the insult to our flag he avenged. Imagine if possible the Asiatic fleet steaming majestically into Manila harbor in the gray dawn headed by the beautiful Olympiiv with her signals floating the inspiring war cry "Re member the poor Cubans." No the humane sentiment is not what drives men into the jaws of death. Dewey's tars care little for Cuba, hut they do care for the stars and stripes and when they think the old flag has been in sulted they will boldly face a thousand deaths if necessary in order to secure revenge. A few years ago, the Civil war was the great war of humanity, yet it required the assault upon Sump ter to rouse the north's " humanity" to the fighting point. Let us bo honest with ourselves and with tho future generations. Wc are at war because the people demanded that the honor of the stars and stripes he upheld, and even then it required weeks to get our ultra-conservative Congress to act. Had the Maine never been destroyed Billy Mason might have stood on the Senate floor and talked himself dumb in behalf of bleeding Cuba, and received nothing hut the jeers and insults of his col leagues. As it was, the Cubans were almost denied recognition in the dec laration of war. All this talk about " going to war with a loaf of bread in one hand and a sword in the other" is foolishness, because we have carried no bread since tho war began, but on the contrary, we are doing just what the President said we would not—taking territory by conquest. Gold in the Philippines. Senator Teller has received a letter from a constituent in Colorado indi cating that the Philippine islands may be found to he rich in gold deposits. The writer savs that in 1875 he traveled from Manila to Singapore with a man who had gone from Mon tana to the island of Luzon for the purpose of investigating the reports of such wealth who gave him this in formation in confidence and as a re turn for a kindness rendered him by the Senator's correspondent. " Ho told me," says the correspond ent, " that the results of his investiga tions were far ahead of anything he had anticipated and that the wealth of gold in that country was beyond estimating. He had gone to the Phil ippines with the intention of going into mining if the situation was promising. When he found they were he went to the Spanish governor to secure permission, but this official would permit uothing of the kind- He gave as the reason for his opposi tion that the development would tend to enrich the population, while the Spanish policy was to keep them in ignorance and subjection." Hardly Appropriate. The Alma, Kansas, Enterprite, re lates that Deacon Fairfield went to Topeka the other day and while there thought it would be a neat thing to buy Hags for all the children in his Sunday school. So he bought a big bunch of flags and returned home, only to find when the hour of distri bution came around that on each flag the following was printed: *' Remember the Maiue, To bell with Spain." The deacon said these were his private sentiments, hut he didn't quite believe they would do for a Sunday school, so there was no distribution.

OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 27, 1898. THE CItAZK HAS SUBSIDED. The Expected Rush to the Yukon The evidence accumulates that the Klondike excitement is almost en- I tircly died out, and it cannot be re. j vived, to the degree it existed last fall and winter, not even if the ships front St. Michaels bring down many tons of : gold this summer. Many people will 1 remain in Alaska, and sonic others will 'go thither, but the Klondike craze is j over, for good and all, and none equal !to it will soon take its place. The : supply of steamers far exeeed the de mand, instead of the demand being greatly in excess of the supply, as was the case last winter. Several vessels, chiefly sailed from Seattle, and sonic front San Francisco, have been taken off the route, and there are no more scenes of boont and bustle in the streets of the Sound city. Many who invested there, or made long leases, are losing money and will continue to do so. The price of dogs, for sledding purposes, lias gone down from SIOO and upwards to $lO, and are a drug in the market at that. The really re markable stock of outfits, both cheap and good, which dealers laid in, arc largely remaining on their hands with a steadfastness that indicates that losses will be made. It is beginning to be clear that the 200,000 people who were this spring to pass through Pa cific coast ports on the way to the Klondike are not going to matcrulize. Willi the month of May upon us, and with the news at band a fortnight old that the ice on the Yukon was already breaking up, the promised begira ought now to be at its height. Yet the middle days of spring present no such flight northwards as did the dark days of midwinter. The first glamour, oc casioned by Alaskan nuggets, and false reports of finds, lias passed away, and now mining in the region of the Yukon is about to nssume a natural and normal degree of legitimacy. That the mouths of tunny of the rivers and creeks that debouch in the Yukon are ricli has l>een demonstrated, but their area is limited, and their output gross ly exaggerated. Two or three reports have been sent out of the discovery of quartz reefs, but not one of thein has yet been verified. Then it is very noticeable bow eager Dawsonites are to sell out claims that ought to be worth ten times what they are asking for them. Joaquin Miller describes in one of bis recent letters, now when a man leaves Dawson with a pick across bis shoulder, the whole population, women as well as men, rush pell mell after him to see if be has made a new development anywhere. This does not say much for tho amount of employ ment available nt Dawson just now. Then again, it is now pretty obvious that the output of the past winter is going to prove disappointing. For some time it was confidently predicted that it would amount to $40,000,000. Now the estimate litis shrunk to SB,- 000,000 with the chances that it may not in fact exeeed $5,000,000. When the climatic conditions of Alaska are reckoned, its gold fields do not promise the compensating advantages that, for a time led people to lose their heads. The Klondike excitement has almost spent itself; yet the develop ment of Alaska will go on as rapidly as is good for it. HE WAS A REMINDER. Folittt Drummer and the Lady Who Told Ilim Something Start ling. Washington Star. The drummer who was talking had a jerky style of speech as if he were afflicted with St. Vitus' dance of the vocal chords or some similar difficulty, " Had a blamed funny experience once," he said. "It was out on the Southern Pacific route. Don't know what town it was. Don't know what State. Perhaps it was a Terri tory. As many Territories along that road as there are States. That's all right. At the town I'm talking about a pretty woman about 25 got aboard. Pretty women scarce as lieu's teeth in that country. Hadn't seen one for a month. Couldn't keep my eyes off of her. At last couldn't stand it any longer. Got up and went over to her. Asked her if I couldn't raise the win dow for her. She said I couldn't. Takes a strong man to raise a car window sometimes. Asked her if I couldn't let her have a paper or a book. She said I couldn't. Tried her again on buying something from the train butcher. Wouldn't have it. Offered to get her a glass of water. Wasn't dry. Tried everything I knew. Got turned down every time. The last time I tried was with a game of whist. Whist was all the rage in the East, I told her. She said she didn't play. Then she looked at me for a minute — maybe it was longer. Then she Bpoke. " 1 Do yon know who you remind me of ?" says she, looking at nic ad miringly. Did Not Materialize. " ' No,' says I. *ls it some dear dead friend of yours?' said I, trying to do the funny act. Not exactly,' said she, laughing; ' not exactly, but of one that will be dead in about seven seconds after my husband sets eyes on liim at the next station.' " ' What's the name of it, madam?' says I, making believe I was ready. " ' Morseville,' veiled the brakeman. " ' That's it,' says she, laughing more than ever. And I fell all over myself trying to make connection with the sleeper at the far end of the train." - ♦ ♦ Organization of Armyand Navy Just now when everybody is inter ested in the movements of the army and navy, the average reader is likely to become confused by the great num ber of terms and titles employed in the newspapers to designate the divis ions of the army and navy and the officers commanding them. The following explanation front the Sid ney Independent, will enable our read ees to understand the terms used in the main, as well as how our military forces are organized. The army is divided into the in fantry, cavalry and the artillery. In the infantry: A company has 100 men, command ed by a captain. A platoon is half a company, com manded by a lieutenant. A squad is part of a company, com manded by a sergeant or corporal. A battalion consists of four com panies, commanded by a major. A regiment consists of three battal ions, commanded by a colonel. A brigade consists of two or more regiments, commanded by a brigadier general. A division consists of two or more brigades, commanded by a major-gen eral. A corps consists of two or more divisions, commanded by a major general. Army, the whole, usually com manded by a lieutenant-general. In the artillery. A battery has six guns, commanded by a captain. A regiment consists of twelve bat teris, commanded by a colonel. The navy is divided into squadrons, flotillas, and fleets. A fleet is a large number of war ves sels under one command. A squadron is a detachment of a fleet employed on some particular service. A flotilla is a fleet of small vessels. The relative rank of tho officers of the army and navy is as follows: Army. Navy. General. Admiral. Lieut-General Viee-Admiral Major-General Rear-Admiral Brigadier-General Commodore Colonel Captain Lieut-Colonel Commander Major Licut-Commader Captain Lieutenant First-Lieutenant Master Second-Lieutenant Ensign. AN Oregonian who is now traveling in the East has written concerning a visit he made to the Omaha interna tional fair grounds, preparations for which arc rushed forward with all possible haste. The grounds are being transformed into attractive plots, and he savs they are easily reached from the city. Most of the buildings are on a larger scale, and many of them outrival the Columbian exposition in beauty. The amusements and novel attractions will be the best ever seen in America —an opinion based on those already listed. Eighty-five national conven tions have dates made at Omaha. The resources of the West have never had a better opportunity for display* Tho enterprise of Oregon in striving to show at the Trans-Mississippi fair is receiving much commendation. THE best possible proof of the good work which Congressman Lewis is do ing in behalf of the people, is the large amount of space which the gold stand ard papers are devoting to abusing and ridiculnting him. These papers do not use their editorial columns to attack a man unless they fear him. They do not fear a man unless he lias ability and courage and cannot be bought. The mere fact that they de" vote space to calling Lewis "a bag of wind," "a brainless dude" and other pet names, demonstrate that they recognize his ability. And meanwhile the people love him all the more for the enemies lie is making Colfax Commoner. IN Berlin the liremen wear water jackets with a double skin, which they are able to till with water from the hose. If the space between the two layers becomes overfilled, the water escapes through a valve at the top of the helmet, and flows down over the firemen like a cascade, protecting him doubly. AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF Ilow the President Transmits Ilis Orders. How does the President, as Com mander-in-Chief of the United States army and navy, maintain communica tion with all the force? It is an elaborate and complicated system, which has been worked out and perfected by experts. Its principal branch is telegraphy, and on this all its other features de pend. On the second floor of the War De partment at Washington is the cen tral station for the dispatch and re ceipt of official war messages. From that station run wires which form connections with every military post and signal station on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, and to the head quarters of army and naval command ers. By a system of loops the instru ments in the War Department can be placed in communication with any part of the world that is reached by a cable or telegraph line. Nearly all the messages arc sent in cipher, and the men who conduct this branch of the service are among the most important and most confidential employes of the government at this time. They are the men whom Spanish spies might seek to tamper with. If the President wishes to send an order to the army lie makes it known to the Secretary of War; if to the navy, then to the Secretary of tlio Navy. The order is first written out in plain English, and is then handed to the cipher clerks, who prepare it for the wires. The operator who sends it does not know ita meaning. No one can read one of these mes sages without the aid of the cipher code. One of these books, stoutly bound in leather, is kept on hoard of each ship, and at each army headquarters, always in the custody of responsible persons. On the ships the code book is kept in a water-tight metal case, weighted with lead. When a ship goes into action this case is put in a handy place by the commander, so that it can be thrown into the sea in case the ship is cap tured or disabled. In the case of a fleet lying off shore, like that now investing Cuba, a system of patrol and dispatch-boats is main tained between the fleet and the shore. That it may not always be necessary that these vessels should go to a regu lar port to deliver or receive messages, the coast signal station, lighthouses, lightships and naval militia headquar ters have direct telegraph lines to Washington, and a system of flag, scmaphonc and rocket signals for hail ing patrol or dispatch-boats that may pass in sight of land by day or night. This great system of communication is enormously expensive, but it has been proven to meet every require ment of the service, and is capable of extension to the active field of opera tions in Cuba should occasion re quire. About Flags. Dipping the flag is lowering it slightly and then hoisting it again, to salute either a vessel or a fort. To " strike the flag" is to lower the national colors in token of sub mission to the opposing forces. A nation's flag represents its sov ereignty and is prominently displayed in all army and naval battles. A flag of truce is a white flag dis played to the enemy to indicate a de sire for a parley or consultation. The black flag is a sign of piracy. The yellow flag shows a vessel to he in quarantine or is the sign of a con tagious disease. A flag at half-mast means mourning. Vessels come into a harbor with a flag at linlf-mast to announce tho loss or death of some of the crew. Flags are used as a symbol of rank and command, the officers using them being called flag officers. Such flags arc square, to distinguish them from other banners. The red flag is a sign of defiance, and is often used by revolutionists. In the American service it is a mark of danger and shows a vessel to he re ceiving or discharging her powder. The white flag with a red cross is a sign of peace. After a battle parties from both sides often go out to the field to rescue the wounded or bury the dead under the protection of such a flag.

Admiral Dewey Careful of the Exterior Man. A man who should meet Commo dore Dewey upon the street in Wash ington would not pick him out tor a naval hero any sooner than lie would select Governor Pingree's vocabulary for sole use jn a theological seminary. Dewey is one of those fellows who have twenty-four suits of clothes and forty-eight pairs of pants; who change their attire not less than four times a day and who would have nervous pros tration if found near a dinner table with no evening dress on. Dewey moved in society in Wash ington as society is moved in by men of leisure, and he conformed to all the idiosyncracies of society in dress, manner and speech. He could legiti mately be called a fop of the first water if judged by his Washington life alone. A stranger would, perhaps, select him for a diletant, but surely not for a fighting man cast in an iron mold. Yet all who know him agree that he has already been a jolly fellow in the real meaning of that term. That being over-clothed did not spoil his good nature nor keep him from being one of the most companionable of men. Indeed, it is agreed that although lie appeared to really work to earn the right to be called a dude, he was still a favorite with both men and women, because above liis possible weaknesses, lie was invariably a suave, polite, con siderate gentleman and the same to all he met, weather Senator or street sweeper. " There is one thing about Dewey, though," said a naval officer at the Army and Navy Club. "He has always insisted that his ship should be as well dressed as lie. And we roust all acknowledge that Dewey's boat was invariably the spick-and-span dandy of the squadron, his sailors the clean est and his drills the smartest. He makes it an unbreakable rule that everything on his vessel can only be done one way and that the right way. No slovenliness is tolerated* And I have no doubt it was his methodical care of all the details that made it possible for him, 7,500 miles from home, to take his fleet 628 miles from the nearest friendly port, carry ing coal and ammunition with him, and sail into a hostile harbor and make a fight upon hostile fleet and hostile forts that will he celebrated for all time in the history of naval warfare for its daring and its success." SHORT SKIRTS That Won a Compliment From a Bostonian. The rainy-day skirt has been ac corded a lordly salute, and by one of Boston's most diguified and best known citizens. Early the past week, when the rain had been falling for over 24 hours, and the street cross walks were in such a shape as to well nigh ruin an ordinary dress skirt, unless the wearer held it up nearly to the knees, one of Boston's well known women, dressed iu a neat and well fit ting rainy-day costume, was returning from the Old Colony Station, after bidding goodby to a friend. While walking erectly and freely across Line den street crossing, where scores of other women were holding up one side of their skirts while the other side dragged in the mud, she was suddenly confronted by a middle aged, courtely gentleman, who was an entire stranger to her, and lifting his hat he addressed her thus: " I beg your pardon, madamc, but a woman who has the good sense and courage to wear so comfortable and appropriate a costume on the streets deserves the most respectful salute. I take off my hat to your short skirt." " I thank you, sir," was the pleasant reply, " but if all women knew the comfort and cleanliness of such a garment I am sure they would wear no other on such a day as this." After this short dialogue the two persons passed on, the woman more than ever convinced that the future of the short skirt was fully assured, and the man made glad with tho thought that the age of reason among women was making satisfactory strides.
