THE OFFICIAL PAPER OF OILUAM COUNTY, OREGON. When the biys of the Sfeciwd Oregon enlisted atul went to lb P;iilip;)irttw l:nt y.i:ir, Pjrtlaml juwpltt and PirtUul iKswepapere had a creat deal to av a'jout the isttions the volunteers atxindoned i t response to their country1 call b)ing kept opmi for them upon their return. They talk differently m since tha boys have elected to hi mastered out at San Francisco, a id receive travel pay to Portland, nther than lose the travel pay. in order to give Portland the op portunity of having a profitable blowoot.,, A Portland newspaper intimates that there is a feeling among the business wen of that city that they will "get even" with the volunteers for thus refusing to contribute to the material gain of Portland tradespeople by refusing to give them employment This is a mighty ennll spirit for as big a tj.vn as Portland to manifest to wards the volunteers and it cannot but lead many people to believe that tbe prime motive in arrang ing for tbe proposed "reception" was not so much to honor the re turning volunteers as to give them and visitors from outside points, a chance to spend their money in Portland. TOO KI01D CENSORSHIP. A dispatch from Manila, under date of July 17th, states that the newspaper correspondents there, have at last succeeded in securing a partial modification of the preva lent system of press censorship by which they claim they have been forced to misrepresent the true con dition of affairs to the American public. The correspondents charge that the censorship was not estab lished for the purpose of keeping information from tbe enemy but for the express purpose of keeping from the public in this country the true condition of affairs in the islands. The statement ot the cor respondents, which is signed by 11 representatives of prominent New York and Chicago papers and the Associated press, is as follows. "The undersigned, all staff cor correspondents of American news papers stationed in Manila, unite in the following statement: . "We believe that from official dispatches made public in Wash ington, the people of the United States have not received a correct impression of the conditions in tbe Philippines, but that these dia patcheB have presented an ultra optimistic view that is not shared by general officers io the field We believe that the dispatches in correctly represent existing con ditions among the Filipinos in re spect to dissension and demoraliza tion resulting from the American campaign, and to the brigand character of their army. We be lieve the dispatches err in the dec laration 'that the situation is well in hand' and in the assumption that the insurrection can be speedi ly ended without great increase of force. We think the tenacity of the Filipino purpose has been under estimated and that the statements are unfounded that the volunteers are unwilling to engage in further service. Censorship has compelled us to participate in this misrepresentation by exorcising or altering uncontroverted statements of the facts on the plea, as General Otis stated, that they would alarm the people at home, or have the people of the United States by the ears. . Specifications: Prohibition of reports, sup pression of full reports of the field operations in event of failure; numbers of heat prostrations in field; systematic minimization of naval operations aud tbe suppres sion of complete reports of the sit-uaUon-"L ... SOME JVE W HISTOR Y. A sensation was sprung in Baker City Saturday afternoon, by the detailing of some unwritten histo ry regarding Dewey's actions in Manila, says tbe Baker Republican. Mr. A. Mueller, one of the man agers of the Vancouver, Washing ton, Hop Gold Beer Company, who has just returned from a year's business trip in the Philippines, spent the day in this city with friends. Mr. Mueller is wideiy known as o:ie of Oregon's up-to-date business men and is a staunch gold republican. Amongt many hrilling and interesting incident with Aguinaldo. He said in part: I went to Manila before the war and was there aftr Dewey's great victory. I bare studied the situation, saw Dtewey and talked with those dose to bin. There was reason for Aguiivaldo's attack on the American forces and Dewey did not want to proceed against him. AgniiiftlJo aued Dewey in running bis fleet into Manila har bor, in the dark, through the Spanish mines, for a consideration, to which arrangement the govern ment at Wasnington was a party. That consideration, or agreement, was never fulfilled. No reason was ever given to Dewey or the milita ry for its non-fulfillment. The war was carried on against the filipinos after thev attacked our soldiers without warning. "Had Aguinaldo good grounds for his attack? "He may have disregarded the usages of modern war by not giv ing notice of his intentions, but there is the firm belief over there that we did not keep faith with g him. Dewey and the military were not in a position to know, and of course were not making our policy. "I voted for McKinley, have always been a republican and be lieve in supporting the administra tion, but think the time is here when the administration should rise and explain. The truth will out on Dewey's return, which be is prolonging for other than reasons of health. Doubtless tbe govern ment had good reasons for its course, but tbe people should know what they were. There is only one thing to do now close the rebel lion as quietly as possible and give tbe islands a good government of some kind. "Manila is a wonderful city. Tbe wall around it, built by the Span ish in 1873-88' is a marvel, 60x40 feet. Three teams can drive abreast upon its top and the Span ish live inside of it. It is'protected by two broad moles with breast works between and would have been impregnable but for the long zunsof our navy. It must have cost millions of dollars and thous ands of lives." PROPHETIC WORDS Here are a few words from a well balanced mind, who was not accustomed to losing his nerve in the most trying crisis, tie was not a pessimist but a man of calm judgement and faith in his country The conditions which existed at the time he spoke, exist now, and in a greater and aggravated degree, They prove the wisdom of his words. It is Abraham Lincoln who speaks, a man whose words had in them the wisdom of a seer. At times he spoke as if inspired; as if the clear vision of the ancient, fabled prophets had been granted him and this was one of the times He said: "I see in tbe near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safe ty of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been en throned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all tbe wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the republic . is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war." Times-Mountaineer. At a result of the late riot in Shoshone county, Idaho, when tbe Banker Hill & Sullivan mill wai blown op with dyna mite, and two or three men killed, the sheriff and all three of the couimiwion era have been removed from office and trial of tbe rioters is now io progress. Th end of the trial is not yet in sight.
