Mr Thurston has In the employ of

obtain them and record them there Is
not tho slightest occasion, except in

An honest desire to piotect tho
courts from slander, a firm dctermlnn

necessarily have led Ml. Thurston to
require that tho statements of the
Judges as made by them from the
bench, as well as contentions of attor
Beys having a bearing on Judicial
acts, should at least be recorded free
from office-coloring or edltorinl com
ment In the news columns. Kery
man has a right to an opinion on the
actions of Judges or the verdicts of Ju

repiesent courts, Judges, or Juries, pro
idcd he has no higher Ideal of honest
citizenship than to stoop to such de
grading methods. But no man who
honestly and fearlessly seeks to do
Justice to officials or his fellow-men
will bolster up his position of nutago

and palpable misrepresentations in a

tho people of this Territory who pay
tho slightest attention to court pro

Mr. ThurBton. through tho paper hu

and swashbucklo of the pirate. "Can

asked tho critics of our l.ord "Noth

and motive of tho newspaper policy

said it and it Is so" has been tho tenor
of the position taken toward tho men
ond tho courts, Irrespective of how
far at variance with the facts this nay
so may he.
Mr. Thurston cannot deny It, ho can
not evade It the fads are too patent
and the record too clear to those citi
zens who hae read his paper. His
ftght has been bitter, It has been per
sonal; It has been dcold of Justice.
Volcano Marshall In his most fanatical
moments never Indulged In more ex

with men nnd motives. Liberty of
speech has become license, freedom
of the press has been prostituted, to
nil Intents nnd purposes the newspaper
of Mr. Thurston has lost nil sciibc of
Justice, decency, or reason.
With this record spread upon tho
pages of the last year's history, Mr.
Thurston tells tho people that IiIb
high and noble aim Is to guard and
maintain the Integrity of the courts,
that no guilty man maj escapo nor tho
Innocent surfer. The people of this
Territory know that there is no power
or hcaen or hell that he can draw

with his declarations
