Since the war started there has been a steady and not able decrease in the number of new arrivals from Europe, and this decrease will probably "increase" as time passes. The August arrivals were but 27 per cent of last year's arrivals for the same month, and for the three months ending August :il only 1:'.:;,429 immigrants reached New York. During the same period last year the number was .'! 47,672. The New York World comments on this and calls at tention to conditions following the wars of the recent past, and the immense immigration following them. According to its figures, the two years after the Russo-Japanese war brought us 47:5,000 immigrants from Russia alone, while the three years before that war brought us but :'28,000. The two years after the Franco-Prussian war sent a flood of immigrants that broke the records from those coun tries. Judging by these precedents, there will be a tremen dous immigration when the present war ends if it leaves any one to emigrate. Conditions have changed materially since the great in flow from France and Germany in '71-2, and there are not the same attractions, lands still to be located and the great deiaand for workmen to rebuild the industries of the coun try just recovering from our own terrible war. At the same time conditions have changed, or will be changed, to such an extent that there will be an irresistable desire to get away from the old countries and governments where men are puppets, or worse yet, targets. It is probable in this view of it that the immigration for the two or three years after this war will break all records. In the cases rioted there were but two governments at war; in this case there are eight, and of these, five are the greatest and most populous nations of Europe. While conditions have changed in the east so as to dis courage immigration, just the opposite condition has been reached in the west. The opening of the Panama canal lias made the Pacific coast almost as accessible as New York has been, and here there are vast areas of cheap lands that will appeal with irresistable force to these peo ple. To the American, the idle lands of eastern Oregon and the whole Inland Empire are looked upon as waste. They will not produce without too much labor, and at once. That is fatal from the American viewpoint, for they want quick results, and will not wait as will those coming to us soon from the old world. These lands will be made to produce by the hardy peo ple who are coming to us, and who will build up homes for themselves where, let us hope, the gaunt specter of Want and his grim brother, War, will never be again visitors. Now is the time for Oregon to wake up as she never did before and arrange to secure a large share of these thrifty people. We have the greatest and most easily available water power in the world, at least 4,000,000 horse power. Among those who will seek homes on this nide of the ocean are Belgians skilled in all flax manu facturing branches. We should secure them and make the Willamette valley another Belgium in this line. So it is along other lines far too numerous to mention. There are thousands of skilled workers whose longing eyes are al ready turned toward America, and Oregon, with her va cant lands, wasting water power and vast opportunities along all lines of manufacturing, offers them a home such as they have never even dreamed of. It is up to us to show these people what we have that they want, and to show them just as soon as conditions back there permit of their moving. A subscriber, writing from Aumsville, criticises news papers for printing sermons of any denomination. And it is true that a good many persons object to religious ar ticles appearing in secular newspapers. When it is re membered, however, that a great many newspaper read ore devote much time to church work and are interested in all matters pertaining to it, it is hardly fair to them to give no space at all to this phase of modern life. The aver age reader is catered to with the general news of the day, politics, sports, etc., and he ought to be willing to Tet the religious worker have a reasonable amount of space, be cause the newspaper is after all only a daily history of the world's progress, and should bar no activity, social, poli tical, moral or religious. The newspaper publishers of the present time have generally accepted thU view and go out after church news just the same as they do for other events of the day. 'THE BLACK ARMY 1 ASSISTING FRANCE LADD & BUSH, Bankers Established 1SG3 Capital $500,000.00 Transact a general banking business Safety Deposit Boxes SAVINGS DEPARTMENT One by one the "absolute truths" we learned even in the nursery are taken from us by some ruthless investiga tor who is not satisfied with things as they are, and so knocks out of existence the things we have deludedly ac cepted as verities. Little Bo Peep is a myth, and Jack the Giant Killer is unfortunately a dead one, and along with these the sayings of sages and the solemn statements of history are proved to be but fairy tales. The latest in this line is H. J. Hoffman, who says he heard General Sherman's letter read at Atlanta and that he said therein: "War is cruelty and you cannot refine it." From this statement some paragrapher drew the condensed form, "war is hell," and let us poor benighted Americans for years heartily endorse what Sherman never said. Well, if he didn't say it, he ought to have done so, and it will have to go at that. It is stated that our county clerk, Max Gehlhar, is drafting a new registration law. This, too, when the weary voters had been told that at last they could register once and then have a rest from that job, only to find they must register for the city election. Directly the people will rise up and ditch the whole registration business, which se far seems to be a device only to hamper the voter and make his life a burden. For some years it has been the custom under this most asinine law for the busi ness man as he went down town to register and then turn his attention to his business affairs. Let us hope Mr. Gehlhar has discovered some way to get a man registered so "he will stay that way. Dr. Withycombe, out of regard for the newspapers supporting him, should refrain from talking. He keeps them busy trying to keep up with his ideas, or going back to take positions abandoned by them years ago. The Oregonian front page cartoon Wednesday showed Governor West on horseback dragging Dr. Smith up the capitol steps and into the governor's office. It is noted the governor was making a success of it. That was quick work at Tacoma Wednesday when Charles S. Gilchrist, a bank cashier, pleaded guilty to em bezzlement, and that same night was in the penitentiary at McNeil's Island. It is rather peculiar that a woman's heart is damaged by broken promises and blighted affections just in pro portion to the size of the blighter's bank roll. The news from the North sea indicates that that place would be the scene of the next big mining rush. About everything that goes there hits a mine. Pari-.

A WOMAN IN THE CASE. When War Is Done Los Angeles, (al., Sept. 21. Patrol man R. V. Murray was near dentil to day of a bullet wound inflicted hv .loliu Hermann, wiioni he sought to arrest for threatening the life of a rival 'or the affections of a worlian. Hermann tied from the scene ot! the shooting, but surrendered to another officer. Murray was shot through the stom ach. The (hooting oeclirred late !.nt night. Many a man is under the impression that he is wise merely because he has no children to ask him questions. in Fiirope, when the war is done may that day soon be greeted! when some their victory have won. and some have been defeat ed, 'twill be a county of the old, the halt, the maimed, the dy ing; in unmarked couches, 'nenth the mould, the young men will be lying. After the youthful hosts are flung, like grain that waits the reaping for war takt? har vest of the voting, and leaves the old men weeping. In Europe, when the war is done, and rust dims sworj and sabre, in barren fields, from sun to sun, old men and dames will labor. The patriarch must guide the plow in fields yet red from slaugh ter, while hitched like horses are the frau, the grandma and the daughter. Perhaps some cripple from the wars may help to do the seeling, while groaning o'er his varied scars, and old wounds freshly bleeding. Some veteran on wooden legs, whose strength is swiftly dwindling, may milk the eow and fetch the eggs, and split the daily kindling. Hut everywhere the weak and old must do the heavy toiling, must strive the little farms to hold, and keep the pot a-boiling. Old men and dames, the harvest waves! Ro forth nnd do the reaping, for in their red and shal low giaves your strong young men are sleeping! floflrSfM. im tr o Jfjfs- ' 4iUm-i Xenpivr Srrf.. f If fe 9 ft A&S PIONEER SALOON WILL CLOSE IN JACKSONVILLE Medfor.l. Or., Sept. 24. Ed Helm's place iu Jacksonville, the oldest saloon in southern Oregon, which has been open for business continuously since 1S.")2, will close on October If, tlie date upon which its license expires, after ti2 years of business. The place is oue of the pioneer landmarks of Jackson coun ty and its walls shelter many historical relics of the e.irly days of the Rogue river valley: in the early day the building was the center of life and a popular meeting place, even for the courts. A collection of pioneer relics, valued at from -J-i.OOi to iO,000 is on display in the place. The first gold nug get found in southern Oregon and the first pool and billiard tables ever 'set up on the coast are among the attrac tions, tiie tables having come around the Horn, were packed from I'revent I'ity on pack mules.
