The resignation of President Chap man of the state university will de prive that institution of a man whose place will ho hard to fill. He is em inently fitted for the position, and stu dents and patrons of the university generally regret that he is to leave it. He is a man of too much independence of character to court the good will of any faction in any lines other than that of duty. It is hoped the good sense of 4 lie board ff regents will fill Mr. Chapman's 'place with some one outside the rings which have been working for his removal. , Hon. J. W. Morton, being asked by the Portland Telegram how he stood on the state fair question, replied as follows: "lam no longer in favor of state aid for the Salem fair, nor-for any of the district fairs. I dp not believe these fairs accomplish the ob jects for which they were createdj I certainly should not object to the state fair being held at Portland, If, as you state, no appropriation will be asked or given said fair."

If Hood River gets a big saw mill in its Christmas stocking Santa Claus will be doing the fair thing by us. And there will be no kick if she gets two big mills. ' . The Dtifur Dispatch has changed its form and done away with the' patent outside. ' Prospects Good for the Big Mill. Hood River has been considerably agitated of late over the advent of cap italists from Wisconsin who desired to establish a saw mill' at the mouth of Hood river, inside the corporation, and Improve Hood river so that the val uable timber at its headwaters might be floated down the stream to the mill. Capt. P. S. Davidson, a practical saw mill man and owner of a large mill at La Crosse, Wis., will move part of bis mill to Hood River and set it up on F. H. Button's land, on the East Side, where the mill can receive logs also from White Salmon and other points along the Columbia. Obstacles that at one time threatened to prevent the establishment of this mill now seem in a fair way to be removed and the work will go ahead. : The Hood River Lumbering Co., a corporation that obtained a franchise from the county commissioners two jeare ago to control the river, claim that their , franchise is still good and that they will go ahead and build a boom and drive, the river. This com pany, it is stated, also claim to be ready to put in a saw mill and that their plant is already on the way here. On the other hand, it is claimed that the Hood River Lumbering Co. has for feited all rights to the river by not ful filling their part .of the contract, which required a certain amount of work to be done every year, the building of a dam or boom, securing right of way.elc. The Hood River Transportation and Boom Co. organized last Saturday. The incorporators are: P. F. Davidson, jr., F. H. Button, G. D. Woodworth, A. 8. Blowers, E. L. Smith, S, E. Bartmess, C. A. Bell. Geo. P. Crowell and D. McDonald. The directors elect ed at the organization on Saturday are as follows: P. F. Davidson, jr., G. D. Woodworth. E. E. Savage, F. H. Button and Geo. P. Crowell.

We are taking the Philippine islands from Spain because we have the right. They are spoils of, the victor and a vic tor's rights are coterminous with ids power. We are taking them from the Filipinos because we want them. Our action has no other character than pur veyance to our own desires. YVIiy should we not candidly say so, and free ourselves from the charge of sniveling hypocrisy? All this talk about our new responsibilities, thrust upon us by t lie fortunes of war, and so forth, is f(Mil talk. For what we do r don't over there we are responsible to no body. We could let go if we chose, and if other nations chose to fake hold, and should come to blows over what we left, that would 1 their own affair, not ours. , Nothing lias been thrust upon us; we iiad not been pitchforked into the van of the landgrabbers; we have deliberately entered into the t-quabble and elbowed our way to the front. If we are really concerned about the fate of Great Britain, Fiance, Germany and Russia if we fear that in precipitating themselves headlong upon what we leave they may crack their precious skulls, and in their greed to grab it scratch one another's hand, we can do as we propose to do in Cuba give the natives selfgovernment un der our protection. It does not greatly matter what we do, but it greatl.v matters how we do it. If we want the Philippines let us hold them, but let -us do so with dignity and self-respect, giving no reasons or true ones. It is well enough to understand that national magnanimity is a lie; that na tions act from no higher motives than the desire to promote their own in terest; that the basis of international relations is selfishness tempered by mistrust. The entire business of being a nation is as innocent of morality as that of a thief or a pirate. Diplomacy is the art of getting what you can in exchange for what you cannot. These things being so. and generally known to be so, what is the good of gilding our honest greed with ' glitter ing platitudes that deceive nobody, not even'ourselves. To the Spaniards we owe' no explanation; to yie Filipinos we can make none; but to ourselves, in the privacy of the newspapers, we might with moral advantage admit that when the savage Philippine islands came running after us to bite us we could have got away from them if we had tried.

With Edison all things' in the electri cal field seem possible. His latest pre diction is that people will soon talk across seas and continents, he having evolved a new plan full of wouderful possibilities for a telephone around the earth. It is to have mid-Atlantic sta tions enabling conversation to be car ried on around a 25,000 mile circuit. This statement coming from the great and successful electrical in ventor and engineer has a great deal of weight and will be received with the consideration due one of the most wonderful men of all time. In this age of electricity, Edison's plan of carrying the human yoiee around the earth is not so sur prising today as the short distance tel ephone was when introduced to the public. Today the human voice is tel ephoned from Los Angeles by way of San Francisco and Portland to Spo kane, a distance of about ,i)00 miles. Had this been predicted fifty years ago the man making the prediction would have been credited with simply "talking through his hat." We believe the day is not tar distant when a merchant can sit in Mi Portland office and talk to his agent in Hongkong or Yokohama. Indeed, this is a most wonderful age more wonderful by far than the fabu lous days of the ancients, whose strange and imaginary exploits pale into insig nificance in comparison with the pract ical accomplishments and deeds of the nineteenth century.

The members of company A, Second Oregon regiment, at Manila, are mostly McMinnville boys, and they have done the handsome thing by their sisters and sweethearts who are members of the Manila Guards, the girl-soldier company of McMinnville. The boys have made, at Manila and sent home, a silver medal for each of the girl-soldiers. It is made from a new and shin ing 20-cent piece, one side of which is ground smooth, and has engraved on it crossed cavalry sabers and the letters, "M. G." meaning either My Girl or Manila Guard. On the reverse side is the Spanish coat of arms and denomi nation of the piece. The pin is behind a silver bar, on which can be engraved the wearer's name, and the medal is suspended from this bar by a red, white and blue ribbon. It makes a very at tractive and historically valuable medal. The Manila Guards are keep ing right up with their drills, but have. recently lost one oi tneir number oy marriage Miss Mercy Flesher. . They now have 40 girls in the ranks, and have received an invitation from Governor-elect Geer to attend his inaugura tion, which they will probably accept. Beauty la Ulood Deep.

It pleases us to hear 'I lie 'Glacier raise its voice against.peddlers of wormy apples at the trains passing Hood River station. . The Observer expressed its views on this topic last August. There is noobjection to boys peddling fruit, but let them peddle good fruit, and there will be more money In the business for them and less disgrace for Hood River. A favorable impression made upon the writer 36 years ago by Father Coe, handing Hood River peaches to pas sengers on the boat, was clearly dis pelled when it came to apples this year. Moro Observer. . There is at Hood River a little in dustry that has as yet attracted but little attention. It is the djstillery started by Mr. itutzier, which 'is being used to work up fruit that Is not mar ketable. It will turn out several hun dred gallons of apple-jack aud brandy tuis tseasuu. iuuuuiuiueer. A death blow has been struck the so called Salem state fair by the national trotiing association blacklisting it for the nonpayment of purses. As horse racing has for some years been the chief, if not the only, attraction at the stale fair, this act will most likely rob it of its last particle of vitality. Port land Telegram. ; ' The Trout Lake correspondent of the Goldendale Sentinel says: "Messrs. Siadleman and -Coate, viewers of the resurvey of the Trout, Lake and White Salmon road, returned home Saturday. They report that the road will be an excellent one when built on the new survey; also will be much shorter than the present road."
