William M. Evarts, one of the
greatest lawyers of his time, died in
New York last week at the age of 83
years. He retired from practice sev
eral years ago.
Roslyn Ferrell was electrocuted in
the Ohio penitentiary last week. It
will be remembered that some time
ago he murdered Charles Lane, an
One of the life-saving crew at Fort
Point confessed to the captain of the
station that he heard the signals of
the Eio de Janeiro, but failed to
awake the crew of the station.
The Ladies' Home Journal charges
$1,000 a column for advertising, and

The Union Pacific has bought the
Southern Pacific and is now one of
the great transcontinental roads.
The opportunity came for the pur
chase when Collis P. Huntington
died. The former road only extend
ed to Ogden, Utah, and the Central
Pacific, a part of the Southern, was
necessary to complete the line to the
A large amount of business was
transacted during the closing hours
of congress and partisan feeling ran
high, but the members finally cooled
off when each found that he had se
cured his share of the public revenue
for every creek where there was sup
posed to be any water during the
It is said that before the end of
the session a bill will be introduced
in the legislature which will provide
against the use of artificial nourish
ments for infants. The design of
-the bill is to prevent competition of
the industry. The bill may pass, as
the worthy members would hate to
draw the line at a little harmless
freak in the closing hours of the
One of the most abominable steals
which came near becoming a law in
the present congress was the river
and harbor bill appropriating sixty
million dollars. The bill from its
very inception was a graft, and ever}
congressman w rho was to get a fat
contract for some constituent was an
earnest defender of the outrage.
Politics cuts no figure in this job, as
all the members supposed to be bene
fitted form a pool and leave the men
who oppose such schemes out in the
cold. Hardly a protest is raised
against it by the great newspapers.
(rov. Nash, of Ohio, has set an
example that could be profitably imi
tated by other officials and poli
ticians. He took a stand early that
prizefighting was unlawful, and this
resolution he successfully main
tained, notwithstanding the fact that
some of his closest friends who were
a power in the world of politics were
strenuous opposers of his policy. By
his energetic, firm position he has
earned the respect of law-abiding
citizens and given the law-breakers a
lesson that they will not soon forget.
If (toy. Stanley had been as resolute
in enforcing the liquor law in Kan
sas there would not have boen any
Mrs. Notorious Nation.
So far the present legislature
holds the diploma for being the most
extravagant legislative body congre
gated since the state was admitted
into the Union. Meeting on an aver
age of four hours a day and taking
junketing trips about the state at
the taxpayers' expense ought to sat
isfy even the present membership.
Extra clerks have been employed
simply to pay political debts, and be
fore the last member has left the
building every vestige of personal
property will have been removed for
good and sufficient reasons to them
selves, and the state will have to pur
chase again for the next session. In
fact it is said that the looting has
already begun. ':
Schlatter, the divine healer, is
making a great stir on the Sound,
and many credulous people believe
he is capable of curing anything.
It is a good thing that a time limit
exists for which our law. makers can
remain at Olympia. Were it other
wise there would not be any funds
Geo. Cotterill may get the ill-will
of the sporting people for his aggres
sive fight in favor of an honest en
forcement of the law, but the men
who have the good of the city at
heart will honor him for the stand
he has taken.
One of the most obnoxious means
of raising revenue was that of the
stamp check, not so much on ac
count of the expense of paying the
tax, but because of its inconvenience
in procuring and keeping at hand
Seattle is not the only city where
the law and order people are insist
ing on the enforcement of the laws
on the statute books. In New York
city thousands of the best people
are organizing for a campaign
against lawlessness, which promises
to continue until the alliance be
tween the officials and the criminal
classes are broken. The effort does
not, as in most cases, appear spas
modic, but the leaders in the move
ment are determined to continue the
agitation until complete success is
If Admiral Sampson wrote the 1
letter he is accused of writing on the
promotion of Gunner Morgan he has
shown himself to be a snob and un
worthy of the position he holds in
the navy. He concedes the fact that
Morgan is competent for a commis
sioned officer and has a splendid rec
ord, but that his social training has
not been such as to enable him to
make a good impression abroad. Ad
miral Sampson has no right to be
very proud of Jiis ancestors, and this
letter would seem to indicate that he
has inherited the snobbishness of
his whole race.
Some people are raving at the po
sition the Post-Intelligencer ha?
taken on the saloon question. They
charge the paper with taking the
position to hurt Humes and build up
the fortunes of John L. Wilson. For
the sake of argument we will con
cede that their contention is true.
But if the position taken is the cor
rect one, the management can well
afford to follow up the assaults so
; vigorously begun. There is one dead
sure proposition for them to con
sider, and that is that there will be
no backward steps, and the stand
taken will be maintained at all haz
ards. They have only begun.
Albert Shenkle, who committed a
criminal assault on the daughter of
Charles H. Diller in Illinois, was
tried, sentenced to the penitentiary
for an indefinite period, and started
on his journey all within an hour,
which clearly proves that quick work
can be done by the courts when it is
desirable. If there was more expe
dition in meting out justice to crim
inals who?e guilt is beyond question
there would be less lynching in the
country. There are scarcely any
lynch ings across our northern bor
der, because the people know that
justice is swift and unrelenting in
the Canadian dominions.
"They (the saloon-keepers) do bet
ter now for the protection of their
interests. When wise provision is
made in the army post recreation
house for the safe and decent relax
ation and refreshment of the soldier,
they control the highest legislative
body in the land, so that, under the
guise of a surrender to the disciples
of Mrs. Nation and their like, it
plays squarely into the hands of the
nearest saloons and all the infamies
that its back parlors and their like
provide for the degradation of de
cent young manhood."
This is Bishop Potter's idea of the
canteen system, and no one will at
tempt to accuse him of having any
sympathy with intemperance and sa
loons. Nearly every army man, offi
cer and private, have given their tes
timony in favor of the canteen as a
restrictive concern, but the dream
ers and theorists who are attempting
to reform the country insist they
have won a great victory by its abol
ishment. It has often been re
marked that the radical prohibition
ist and the saloon-keeper could al
ways be depended upon to vote in
The city of Everett gave the
members of the legislature a royal
welcome, but it is feared the good
people cast their bread upon the
Congressman Shaw, "who died re
cently, commanded the first Negro
regiment raised during the civil war.
He was an aggressive man and stood
always ready to back up his princi
ples. Xo one ever accused him of
dishonesty, but he was cordially
hated by the Copperheads.
The election of Mr. Mitchell by
the Oregon legislature to the United
States senate gives Scott of the Ore
gonian another black eye, for if
there was anything' that Scott par
ticularly hated it was Mitchell.
While it was perhaps unfortunate
that the aid of the Democrats was
necessary to his election, it was bet
ter thus than not at all. Scott wants
to be a boss of the first magnitude,
but the people of Oregon will not
tolerate his ambition.
Some one in the New York legis
lature proposes to solve the Chris
tian science problem in a practical
manner. Some physicians will be on
hand ready to inoculate the scientists
with typhoid germs and allow the
crowd to work out their own salva
tion. If they reject the germ theory
there will not be much ground to
stand on. On the other hand, if
they accept, it will be suggestive of
the middle ages, when victims were
thrown into fire or water to prove
If Tillman, of South Carolina,
wants to work himself into a fever
of excitement he should go home
and investigate the most revolting,
cruel and unlawful infringement of
the Declaration of Independence yet
discovered in the United States since
the civil war. In Anderson county
a man by the name of Newell was
arrested, tried and acquitted of mur
dering a man who was held as a slave
on some trumped-up trivial charge,
which facts the court is now investi
gating. When this report comes to
light it promises to reveal one of the
most revolting systems of slavery
that ever existed in this country. It
is also said the system is not only
confined to Anderson county, but
nearly the whole state of South Car
The men who conducted the meet
ing for the purpose of influencing
the enforcement of law in this cits
did so in such a manner that every
business man, outside of the business
of saloon keeping, and every other
good citizen can heartily approve
their work. If enforcement leagues
and other reformers would be satis
fied with the practical side of the
question they would accomplish a
great deal more. Reforms cannot all
be brought about at once, and the
sooner the radical temperance folk
find this out the better it will be for
the cause. If the men who are en
gaged in this crusade will confine
their efforts to the ousting of the
worst gambling device in the city—
the niekel-in-the-slot machine—they
will have earned the thanks of the
community at large, if they are not
better paid. The men composing the
gathering were representative citi
zens, and they engaged in this work
because they considered it a duty
they owed to the people as well a>
The Tacoma Ledger says that
"two little girls are hold in jail at
Walla Walla. They have been there
for months, and the day of their lib
eration seems remote, yet they are
charged with no crime. Their mis
fortune is that against one of them
there is supposed to have been a
crime committed, and. as to the
other, she knows something of the
case. Their testimony will be neces
sary at the trial of the foul creature
held for the offending, and he awaits
in the same jail." The children hap
pen to be unfortunate waifs, who
have no friends to bail them out.
This is not an isolated case, and is
happening nearly every month in
King county. Some unfortunate in
dividual happens to have his pocket
picked and some hobo is accused of
the crime. The culprit secures
bondsmen from the criminal ele
ment, but the victim, who is a stran- j
ger in a strange city, and without
friends or influence, is thrust into
jail, possibly for months, to await
the slow-going process of the courts
and the criminal lawyer, hired to de
fend him. It seems there should be
some way of improving on this
method of criminal procedure.
Got. Rogers vetoed the bill for
the regulation of the practice of
medicine, and he is entitled to the
thanks of the people for this effort
to put a brake on freak legislation.
The bill was not the innocent meas
ure that it appeared on the surface,
though it passed, over his veto later.
The dexterity with which the re
tiring judges of the different districts
of the state closed up their business
when they ascertained they must va
cate proves that all the hue and cry
raised for more judges was simply
to provide positions for men who
could not make a living practicing
Every person outside of Olympia
knows the capital should be removed
to some more accessible 'place, but
here is where the difference of opin
ion comes in as to which is the place
where it should be anchored. King
does not want it, but will vote
against it going to Tacoma because
that city can always be depended
upon to vote against any improve
ment which would assist in building
up or benefiting Seattle in any way.
Other cities seem to think that it is
certain to be removed some time and
lightning might strike in their direc
tion. Possession is nine points of
the law, and Olympia has possession.
