Boo 01 Hie opauisn uuuiuu in iiic in- national Red Cross Socletyt which ently arrived In this city from Havana, has Issued a circular letters ppeulliig to the American public for funds to aid the work or the Ipanlsh branch of the society In Cuba. ft is stated In the circular that the cietr In Cuba lends assistance to all 111 and wounded In tho field, fubans and Spanish alike. Tomas Estrada Falma, head of the uban junta in the United State, re aring to the circular said: "I request that It be made known Ihat the commission's claim that the ment, and none of its members are al lowed to minister to the wounded or dying Cubans on the battle field. "J challenge the society to publish over Its signature a single case In which the Red Cross has on any bat tlefield in Cuba attended to the wounded on the Cuban side. I can prdvc by American, and even by the Spanish press reporters that there haye been many cases where Cuban surgeons have nursed wounded Span ish soldiers, escorting them afterwards totheSpinish lines. 'Only recently Spanish decree was issued in Havana placing the drug trade under the control of the govern ment In order to keep, under severe penalities, any medicine from reach ing Cuban hospitals. It Is for this reason that we Cubans must rely on the United States for our medicines for our 111 and wounded In Cuba and It Is to keep the Spanish soldiery from assaulting our hospitals that we place them in the heart of the mountains where only Cubans would dare tread.

I have spent three days In the smaller towns of Washington county and was more than Impressed with the wonderful variety and apparently lluililcus re sources of Oregon. Our kid politics, bad roods and bad methods are mere specks of mud that will rub off as we shall ko forward in development Into agrand sclf-sustanlug commonwealth although the Portland Telegram says: "Oregon is a dependent." THE FIKST RAINS have come and the first furrows are being struck in the rich clay lands of the Tualatin plains. All along the roadsides and in the pastures one sees heaps of mushrooms that re tail in the Poitlaud market for 0 cents a pound. The cioator was tut satisfied to All the air w ilh fowl, the water with lish, the land with irnilny, cattle and fruit, but he btoied the soil beneath with magic spores that spring up and tickle the human palate. WASHINGTON COUNTY has been a Republican stronghold In the past. It has never given a major ity for the Democratic ticket in a presidential year. Last year it was very close, but the Republicans irot In by small majorities Tom Tongue getting 37 plurality, the lowest on the ticket. The Populists and Dem ocrats haye a majority together of about 200. Ex-Senator S. B. Huston of nillsboro.who has always taken tho field against Tom Tongue Is now con sidered a gold standard man and al most a bedfellow of Tongue. He will vote, if he votes at all, for McKlnley or Palmer. Hon. W. II. H. Myers, of Forest Grove, better known as"Buck" who has always stumped the county against D. M. D,uribar, or Dllley, in this light are cauvusslng together, the former a Democrat and the latter a Silver Republican. Ira E. Purdln, of Forest Grove, has been doing somo of the best work on, tho stump for Bryan. Other gppd speakers are L. A. Long, of tho Hills- boro "Agus," and W.H. Black.of the Hillsboro "OtherBide," ami .ua.bnuu raprich, of Tualatin. L. A. Ward, Judge O'Day and John Myers,bankcr, of Portland; W.S. U'Ren, of Oregon Cltv;made a dent In the gold standard armor wherever they spoke. H. L. Barkley, of Woodburn. made probably his greatest speech of this campaign at Forest Grove. Judge nare, the nillsboro iner--chant.holds his place In the esteem of the people and has made some of thp most effective speeches, qf tho cam-, palgp, the Republican Independent calling him the ablest man In the state who has ppoken here. Governor Pen noyer made two speeches in the county, drawing Immense crowds, and showing no diminution in toe Influ ence with the multitudes of h(s ad; mlrers. Martin Qulnn, of Portland made two speeches In joint debate and more than held Ins own with that giant in stature Mr. Lee, of Portland. David Dunbar had joint debates with Judge Cornelius. Ralph Dunnl- way and If. Y Ga3' 6,lw,n.K. Wm self a match for these able men. Ed Sliulmerlch and Ira Purdln also had successful debates with the enemy. AT BEAVEItTON. Mr.II. Wehrung.of the firm of Web rung & Sons, Hillsboro merchants, took us to this town. This gentle man came to this state In 1852 and was a native Al&ace-Loralpe, speak- the German and French languages, and being also fluent In the English language and American politics. Ho left us at the house of Secretary Schmidt, the Beavcrton blacksmith. In a few minutes J. W. Barnes drove up and took us to his farm house. Ho cultivates about 65 acres of large gar den truck for the Portland market, whither his teams go to market two or three times a week. He took us to Cedar Mills, where a solid houseful of sllvcrttcs greeted us. i k . ; He Is clubseeretary, Ilqbt. Thompson, president. A. J. Veatch, ouettf the club, was a Kansas man during the war and fought on tho side ofthe Union for two years. They are now on tho same side with htm, men who opposed him, then. J. M. Wall, a ris ing young Hillsboro lawyer, Is chair man of the Uuton Campaign Commit tee. This county hu3 two good Bryan pa pers, the Hillsboro Argus and ."Other Side," both doing effective work. THE DEAVKk'lANDS. j As wo get off the pla.ius we strike vast acras of the wonderful) Oregon beaver dam lauds, soil that you can With one hand run a rake haudlo down to the braces a muss that seems more like a mixture of rotten leaves and ashes than soil. This soil will feed millions of people with the c'loicest vegetables. Tho finest corn, smashes, cauliflower, iHto'too(, beds, oirrots and cab'bagu are grown on the swale lauds and higher benches for the Portland market. Tho wagons start for the city before daybreak, for ten to twenty and even itblrty miles teams haul the products 'to market and haul out the merchandise along side the railroad. The high prices of freight on the Southern Pacific give a great amount of employment to the people,and in that way benefit labor, although -It rote the producer and consumer by forcing tho former to 6cll very cheap, and the latter to pay dear. But then us long as tho railroads uro managed on the principle of taxing the traffic all Jt will boar, tho rail roads will continue to 'be a burden upon the producer Instead of a ben efit. A ticket on the SouthcrnPaclflo from Portland to Hillsboro Is82 cents. The agent very .kindly and regularly takes 85 cents for a ticket. But then we can all afford to give this poor cor poration 3 cents each time we ride, Some day we will grow as Intelligent as France, where the railroads arc run like tho .postal system, for the people Instead of the millionaires. There freight rates are made to make bus! ness Instead of to kill business, to det velop enterprise Instead of destroying . Now tho worst enemy of any Ore gon enterprise is the railroad that chargssas-much for a short distance as It will haul freight for ono to thrco thousand mllos to compete with tho Oregon manufacture. The talk about protecting American Industries With a tariff, and then killing our indus tries with a discriminative railroad tariff system, becomes wearisome. The question Is, do the masses of the people exist for the railroad, Or does the railroad exist for the. masses? It .seems to me that It is a bigger subject than tho tariff or the. silver question;, BnM ENTEfiS IOWA Made His First Speech Bj6 fore 7 tA. M.

Unless reports which come to us from various states are entirely erroneous, we shall have considerable moro than 300 electoral votes."

Sm: Thtirc had becii malleti to your address a circular letter Issued, by this committco. It demonstrates that tho former Democratic rin'snlra. tlon in tills state has been almost, If, not entirely, swallowed up by tlio Populists. i When tho chairman and Secretary of tho State Central Comitteo sup posedly representing tho Democracy of the" Stnte,do as tho present chair man and; secretary havo done, wo feel that tho titno has arrived when Dem ocrats, Irrespective of personal views. should protest against snch action; and, lu order that it may bo' effective. voto for tho only Democratic ticket presented to tho olectors In our Btato this fall, to lnsuro that tho Dem ocratic party may haven placo on tho ticket ut the next succeeding election. You aro no doubt awaro that a party casting less than 3 per cent of tho vote, will not bo entitled to nominate, by convention for tho election follow ing sucli vote. My excuse for wrltlnir vou is to call our attention to these matters and, y if posslbla obtain your assistance in PQrpotuatlng tho Democratic party In order to nialntnln tho organization, It will bo necessary to obtain & trood voto for tho Palmer and Buckner, elec toral ticket.
