BACK FROM THE PHILIPPINES. COLBY TEAM FLUNKED. PEKSOXAL JfOTES. -s jt r -. r r jr Jobn BatU of This City Gives II is Views of Conditions In the Island. John Butts, a returned soldier from the Philippines, has a monopoly on matters of fact "in these parts" con cerning the status of things on the antipodes. Every man in Sherman county who thinks that McKinley is a good god of imperialism, and that the Filipinos are a people so contemptible and barbarous as to deserve cot a single consideration at the hands of American people should talk with Mr. Butts and imbibe at least enough facts to counter balance his prejudice. The politics of Mr. Butts is not known to The Repcblic. That is not a pertinent question here. The testi mony of observation from an actor in 14 fights must be taken seriously. Fre quent contact with the natives enabled him to acquire much which needs to be known by the people at home, both im perialists and anti-imperialists. The truth works no injury, and if the facts a...
