Director Preston,, of the mint, says: "The result of the currency legislation of the United 8tates for over a hundred years has been such as to leave an In coherent monetary system, as Inc n 1 t ent, Illogical and expensive as can we 1 be Imagined, that inspires lltt e c. niliienoe at home and is not conducive to our c tdit abroad, and its reform Is one of toe most Important and ureent p'l'tlral and finan cial questions of the hour." ' Apprehension that pa ty feeling w 11 p e vent the executive and legislative d pnrt ments of the government from consider ing reform of the monetary system does not Indicate a high confidence In the patriotism of either the admln'strallon or of congress, or both combined. Upon the currency question there Is no excuse for party rancor. The monetary system In its present state Is representative of no party, satisfies no class. Upon only one proposal are all parties an J all class agreed namely, that the system n.ust be reformed. - Nor Is It surprising that such a need should exist. One government afur an other of the stable Institutions til the world has been compelled to recogi.lz. tl.e the fact that by virtue ot comi. e.cial usage gold alone posse-ses an unlimited tender quality. One govern. i.ei.t aiUr another has struggled with llu impcsjiUe problem of making its own word main tain another metal at par with g.d, un til today there is not In the wcrld any government recognized amoi.g mil ous as enduring and honest wh.cli k.cps up this attempt. At tho closo of a hu. d ed years it Is not to our discredit that a complicated and self-contradictory body of laws should confront ot.r slat stmm and confound the financiers. The chief reason why Eng a-d contin ues to be dictator of the wor.d In llnnncial matters Is not merely that she ceased In ISIS to try to muke two yatdst.cki oi different length measure one ya. d; not merely that for three hundred years she has left the banking business to bankers, and declined to trust it to her politicians; but that, whenever the money q.iestlon has been before her people or her parlia ment, it has never been viewed as a paity question nor dragged down Into the blun dering animosities of pprty prejudice, nor subordinated to class interest. ' ' ' THE EVILS OF WAR TALK. The present outburst of war ta'k Is not unnatural. To some extent It Is excusa ble, If not commendable. It Is a notice ' to the world that the American people are united and are ready to go to any ex treme to vlndlcato the traditional policy of their government and In protecting the vital Interests of their country against nil comers, however formidable. The Bober sense of the American people, the eume sound sense that rallies them to the sup port of the president on the general Issues of the dispute with Great Britain, will .show them, however, that any prolonged war excitement at this time would be productive of far more harm than good. War talk, In advance ot actual danger ot war, Is unprofitable. It unsettles tiusl ness and depresses trade. It diverts men's minds from useful channels and unfits them for the best work of life. Whatever preparations for any possible war may now be necessary or desirable rnay well be left to the public servants who are charged with such matters. National defense Is a good thing. Our coasts, as we have always argued, should be well fortified. Our navy should be large and powerful enough to hold the ea against any hostile fleet. These an objects which the government moy prop erly seek to attain at the earliest prac ticable moment and which may properly be left entirely to the government. It ' will not help the government nor expedite the work one whit for the general public to go battle mad and to m gleet and In jure business by discussing hare1 rained schemes for the conquest of Canada and the destruction of IlrltlBli commerce. War talk Is also Inexpedient at this juncture because It Is sure to mnke tin settlement of the case more d fllcult. Grave as Is tho dispute betwe n the United States and England, It Is one to be settled peaceably by diplomacy and Jurisprudence. That Is the conviction of every rational man on either side of the sea. The duty of a diplomat Is to make the settlement of quarre's tader, not harder, and it Is tho duty of cltlsens to contribute their shara of Influence towaid that end. That la not the best type of loyalty or of patriotism which would em barrass its ministers by talking of war when they are working for peace. If we really want to uphold the rights and honor of the United States, and to do so by peaceful means-and who is there who does not? we shall do so far more effec tively by talking of peace, even though we were preparing for war, and by leav ing war talk out of the controversy until the utmost efforts of peaceful d plomary have proven vain. If war should come at last we shall be none the lens prepared to meet It for having striven to the best tf our ability to keep the peace. TV re are times In the history cf ns- - --' i" rrrtci to as the sole though, dreadful alternative to mnliln worse; as Hip urceon's kiirc i Is preferable to the gangrened limb. Such was the case In our own revo ut'on. The fiery oratory of Adam, and Henry .ct the land aflame with martial ardor. But that was only after those same speakers had made every possible plea for peace. In every sentence of their war speeches they made It clear that every peaceful appeal for justice that could be made had been made and had been rejected, and there was absolutely nothing left but to fight. It would be worse tlian fo ly. It would be sin, to pretend that we arc In such an extremity today. The "resource or civilization and civilization means peace have not been exhausted.' When they are, If they ever shall be, the United States will be ready as one man to take up arms and fight to the bitter crd. But that time Is not yet come. The two great nations of the world which are foiemost In the arts of peace and culture, and which are of all most closjly related to each other by ties of blocd and mutual Interests and common aim, have not fallen so low that there Is no wnv ot settling their disagreements but by a reversion to savagery and barl.ar.sm. The school children of Astoria, ore get ting now what Is better than presents and good things to eat a two w tk-i' ret from books and studies as a I art of their holiday treat. School hou s, books and lesons are necessaiy to the me-itm development of the children) but sc ool confinement and hard study are not the natural element of childhood, and the joy with which each vacation Is greeted by tho young people Is natural and p easant to notice. Everybody who has been young once will be glad for them that the holiday season has come, and the ch.l- dren will be glad for themselves . h thr anyone else Is glad or not. And then, again, the teachers are getting a well earned rest alter severa fatgulng m.,r,,h of labor In the best cause lcr w.ilch men and women can work. Let us hope they all, both teachers and scho.ars, w 11 go back to their duties In 1S0G with renewed activity. Is the United States cruiser Cincinnati Jonahlzed? Some were no doubt p.o- voked to auk this question when t ey read the report of her narrow e. cape ,rom fire and explosion, lielore the ves- el was completed, In 1592, a fire in th .iooklyn navy yard almost tlcitr.y d her .nuln engines; In fact, tha da . age to them was of so serious a nature that It coBt 115,000 or $20,CC0 to repnlr them.

Over ICO conversions arc reported. The State Teachers' Association will meet In Portland the first week of the new year. Mutton sheep arc being purchased In Southern Oregon for Portland markets for from $1.25 to $1.50 per head. The discovery of coal In great abun dance In Grant county Is reported.

The Grant's Pass Courier says: "Our rliy debt Is about 112.000, county debt 55,000, bonded school dl trlct debt $13,000. Our city assessment roll figures up in round numbers $r.00,000. Now ellv'de our portion of the county debt according to the assessment roll, and tho c'ty of Irnnt's Pass Is $05,000 behind on a capital of half a million.
