A Bunch of Noted Men
From the Cedar Rapids Republican.
When that bunob of men cauea me
common council of Cedar Rapids gets
together they can think of more fool
thingB to do than any other similar
bunch in the wide wide world.
President Roosevelt has issued an or
der to the executive departments, ex
pressing his desire that, "wherever the
needs of the service will justify or the
law will permit, preference be given
alike in appointment or retention, to
honorably discharged sordiers of the
civil war who are fit and well qualified
to perform the duties of the place which
they seek or are filling."
Archbishop Keane, who is making a
vigorous war on the liquor traffic, in a
lecture at the Cathedral in Dubuque
last Sunday, stated, bb reported by the
Telegraph-Herald, "That heVaB much
amused with the discussion that has
been going on in the newspapers dur
ing the past week concerning the prob
abilities of bis compromising with the
Knights of Fidelity, an organization
representing the saloon element of Du
buque. I have never yet made a com
promise with the devil and I dou't in
tend to now. A man coming with a
compromise to the effect that he will give
upjpittle of the devil's work in order
Iftfft'the law of God may be'more re
spected always has his right hand up in
the air towards heaven and hlB left
behind his back in the devil's pock
et. I don't believe in making com
promises with the devil. I am hern to
fight the devil and wherever I meet
him, I say, 'Go back to hell where you
belong.' If I badjny way I would put
the"old rascal" in the loweBt pit of hell
and would put a strong chain around
his neck and wouldn't give him a fing
er's length of Bpare chain to move

ol Our Soldiers Missing,
Manila. Jan. 20.—General Oliaffee, In
the annual report wliifch ling just been
issued, sums up the situation from the
military point of view by saying that
the provinces of Ilatangas and Lngunn,
in southern I-uzon, and the islands of
Samar, Miurtoro and Obu constitute
the disturbed area in which bodies of
insurgent* in force are to bo found.
General Chaffee says the prolongation
of guerrilla warfare is due to the
physical character of the country and
to the nature of the warfare carried
on by the Insurgents, who in the same
hour por.e as friends and act as ene
mies to the humanity displayed by the
United States troops, of which the in
surgents take advantage, and to the
fear of assassination on the part of
thoscnatives who are friendly disposed
toward the United States should they
give the latter information concerning
the movements or whereabouts of the
Mixed Government Not an Advimtafjp.
Municipal and provincial govern
cial governments are being organized,
These governments have not yet re
ceived a practical trial. They consti
tute the only certain and reliable meth
od .of ascertaining the progress of the
Filipinos toward self-government. In
the same report .Judge Advocate Groes
beck says the suppression of brigand
age will probably be one of the most
trying problems of the future. Tf the
military arm be left free to "deal with
the marauders there is no doubt of
their final suppression. But the pres
ence of the civil government compli
cates the situation considerably.
Eleven of Our Soldiers Missing.

of company I, of the Second infantry,

any such body of Insurgents on Boliol.
