A dispatch from Washington states that Secretary Root has practically decided to recommend the reestablishment of the army canteen. This will be gratifying news to soldiers and their friends. There has been con siderable dissatisfaction in their ranks because of the ablition of the canteen. It is said that practically every officer in the army and all the officials of the war department have concluded after a practical test that a mistake was made in abolishing it, as the army has been injured by so doing. As a result of that action a large num ber of vile saloons have sprung into existence in the vicinity of the army posts, and drunken ness has increased in the army. The number of desertions also have increased. There are on file in the war de partment confidential reports from officers of the army which show the bad results of closing the canteen. General Miles is the most noted officer who is against the re-establishment, but the facts presented by the officers in the field have outweighed the recom mendations. ROOT RESIGNS. Before Secretary Root sails for London to sit with the Alas kan commission, he will place his resignation in the hands of Pres ident Roosevelt in order that the president may appoint a secre tary of war if it is deemed neces sary during Root's absence. It is expected, however, that the resignation will not be acted upon until after congress meets It has been known for some time that Secretary Root intend ed to retire, but he did not wish to leave the department until the general staff bill WHS in operation. It is believed that his successor will be Governor Taft. PRESIDENT KOOSEVELT'S a phe Uli th open letter to Governor Durbin of Indiana is meeting cordial and general endorsement. The Even ing Wisconsin, published at Mil waukee, says of it: "President Roosevelt, in his letter to Gov. Durbin, written not as the executive head of the nation, but as an American citizen, expresses admirably the feeling of abhorrence which all law-respecting Americans enter tain for the form of lawless violence which Gov. Durbin promptly ordered out the troops to suppress. One of the grav est results of the exercise of lynch law is the demoralization that it occasions in communities where it nourishes without re buke. The president makes a strong point when he suggests that no one who has participated in a lynching can ever get rid of the abnormal emotions thus aroused. Jack London in "The Call of the Wiid" graphically portrays how a dog that went among savage dogs lost the character he had acquired by residence among men and 'be- came savage himself, like this wolfish ancestors. A mob is call of the wild" to human yoe o.|rS. Men car not stand at VOi" me time fo lynch law and ization." H. Two society" Astoria were tf0r The Pioneer. marriage of Mrs. William K.
