Oicial Paper of North Yakima.
THE SIS DAY PROBLEM.
Every problem of intrinsic merit upon
the proper solution of which resi««ctable
classes in the community «re seriously
divided ii worthy of careful, candid and
sincere hhHmlm Without the priv
ilege of free upeech and the aid of a free
' preet in such matters, the disposition
made of such ([iiestions is just as likely
to be in accord with tbe vulgar whim of
the barbarian ac in consonaace with the
conscientious desire of tbe representatives
of good moral* and a juM law. Such
agencies are always practically useful in
the adjustment of community differences,
bnt they should be employed with can
dor, prrfdence and a well-defined honesty
The peopled North Yakima arc to day
divided upon a question of more thai,
passing importance—divided not so much
on the justice and wisdom of the moral
and civil law clearly applicable in tin
case as upon the expediency of applytsg
it strictly at this time.
A sincere desire to be just and honor
able and a willingness to be directed by a
reverential esteem for things sacred
cm one element in the present contest,
while probably n portly mercenary mo
tive prompts the opposing class to action.
It Is the question as to »helheror not the
lav whicb directs thttt business shall l>e

respected in this community.
On the first page* of this issue appear
three or /our communications from men
whom the peope of this city esteem as
ministers of the gospel—devout, kind
hearted, well-meaning, able gentlemen
They have spoken clearly, plainly and
without passion. They offer offense to to
one. Their positions are in happy n<
cord with both the civil nnd the moral
law. With candjd sincerity tney ume
the maintenance of one day of rret in
•even, of reßpect for the holy character
ot tbe day we call Sunday. They have
petitioned the municipal legislature to
decree that the state law "hall be obeyed
but that body will probably continue to
ignore their prayer.
Political obligation, in this day of un
holy public service, too frequently over
shadows an appropriate sense of moral
responsibility, and in a solution of th*
problem suggested by this fact will tin
advocates of righteous business iin.l wvinl
conduct find the key that will admit
them to the inner Hiniimii of those wbn
are answerable for the present BfCfashj
for their appeal.
Member* of the city council urc ser
vants of the public and in the rank the\
enjoy above the lowly sovereigns of the
city there in scarcely sufficient glory to
ease the pain inftVtml by their official
coronet of thornß. Buttheircont>titiientr
have a rirbt to kuow their position, in
dividually, on a matter of such grave
concern to many, and in their withold
ing that exprenMion tbe people are bereft
of a privilege they ought to be permitted
to enjoy. The ultimate disposition of tbe
matter Is, therefore, as remote as it was
at the time the action was begun.
This is not and should noc be made a
personal matter, but members of the city
council, by absolutely ignoring the peti
tion of the people, appear to challenge a
discussion of tfiat phase of tbe question.
Our columns are open to a 1 who wish
to discuss this matter.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN
Tbe grim spectre of war ii again cast i
athwart the ambient sheen of peace in
Europe. The Czar, the Kaiser and King
Humbert of Italy know most about what
tbe present war-like preparation means,
but tbe lay observer is ready to vote that
war will be tbe outgrowth of present con
ditions in wbich France, (if rmanv, Italy,
Austria and Russia are such conspicuous
factors, with an almost overwhelming
combination against France. War may
not be imminent, but those informed on
the situation do not hesi .ate to predict
that it is inevitable.
What a glorious opportunity this will
afford tbe European anarchist and social
ist for a season of enjoyment of their
favorite pastime—war, bloody, deatruc
tive, annihilating war. This element in
Europe, like the spurious offshoot from
tbe ovfr-bnrdened trunk of the fruit-tree,
is a worthless, feverish, inflammable out
growth from the body politic of those
over-peopled countries. The decay of
the trunk in which they first found nour
ishment serves to fertilize this unnatural
growth, and to slake their desperate thirst
in tbe blood of their countrymen seems
to be tbe ultimatum of their savage am
In thii grim prospect the optimist will
foresee much good. A well-planned,
fi»rcely-fotik!ht »ar in Kurope means a
thinning out and pruning down of the
great tree f.'om which so many unfruitful
branches have sprung. It means a
thorough pnrning c' disordered social and
political conditions, to be followed by a
more cleanly, healthful and productive
growth under greatly improved methods
of cultivation. It means an awful sacri
fice of human life, to be sure) but why
polute unto decay the whole body by re
taining a poisoned limb, when the sur
geon may restore health to tbe seat of
life by removing tbe diseased member?
And to America! It means more to us
than we dare to reveal by mercenary etti
mate. Abandoned fields, deserted work
shops, silent manufactories, sonrces of
■upplr throttled by the desperate hand of
war—with all this, and more, what would
be the demand upon our inexhaustible
In view of such a consequence, one is
almost impelled to strike down the pessi
mist who would attempt to still the war
ring elements with a prayer for pence.
JUST A WORD, PLEASE.
Tbe Herald's earnest purpose is to be
lylearleu. But ty can be neither in an
acceptable degree without being ageres*
live. It will not intentionally wrong
anyone. Respecting matters affecting
personal conduct, officially, socially, po
litically or otherwise, in which the com
munity has a material interest, it will
canrfully collect tbe fact* and upon them
i predicate its comment, offering it slways
| in a spirit ot fairness and with s view to
promote Justice. Parsoing this coarse
f«i thftitly, it will safely avoid the necessity
of offering apology or making retraction.
Its publishers bare ne patient* with
that practice, altogether too general In
tbe newspaper business. They have
never tolerated it and it is their purpose
never to resort to it. Therefore, should
tbe nader observe an addle-patoH mmMb
going about the street whispering that
some particular friend of his. whoee be
havior had been a sabject for adverse
criticism in these columns, had amn
marily cowed the editor of this paper
into making the desired anvr.d- hnnnr
able, you can safely record him in your
notebook as a petty, willul and malicious
liar, engaged in a calling to which he is
happily adapted by nature and whose
lust for small-soiiled meanness easily
outweighs his desire for the cordial respect
of his felinwiuen.

Our übiquitous advertising man is
something of a privileged character
when it comes to claiminK apace in our
columns. His demands this week have
made a six page edition necessary, and
even then our fpace for local and editorial
matter is uncomfortably reduced. The
manner in which our subscription list in
increasing and our advertising patronage
'a enlartfiiit! is indeed gratifying. I> is
an eloquent annintent in support of the
business stability and keen foresight of
nur business men. It also expresses in
pleasing phrase to us their appreciation
of a good newspaper, published in '.!..•

41656 TIE HOP VISES.
Activity In V«rd»—.Plckrra from
sound... I lie lloUoi.
Hop picking was begun on the Moxce
yesterday. The Indians are numerous in
The product of the hop fields in this
vicinity this year will be fully three times
that of last season.
The next train load of registered hop
pickers from the Sound will arrive here
hi Monday morning.
Hop picking commenced generally In
England on the 21st of August. The
quality is said to be better than antici
pated in former reports.
It is aaid that Sheriff Simmons has the
finest field of hops in the county, the
growth being more uniform, the appear
ance more attractive and the promised
average per acre greater.
Tbe quality of the hops in Yakima dis
i . trict this season, it ia believed, will be
, superior to that of previous years, for th*
reason that improved curing apparatus ia
1 being used and more experienced dryers
. are being employed.
The system of cashier checks fur the
' payment of hop pickers, described in a
' previous issue, is meeting with great ap
» proval among growers and is being grn
- erally adopted. I*, is a most gratifying in
' novation on former inconveni»nt methods.
The market is inactive. The dilivery
' of new hops in England two weekn ago
has apparently supplied the demand for
B I immediate use. The London buyers will
i make few, if any, advanced offers until
' tbe home crop shall have been consumed.
Demand for Pacifies will prnbably not in
crease much, if any, until December.
The Pnyallup Citizen is in error abont

h It is oor neighbor, Mr. <"iluen, whom you
n should inxtruct to read your "plain irony"
w I over again. The Hebald appreciated
your good judgment in giving doe credit

. to-day. Four hundred pickers arrived

} i Mny people not*retistered m pickers
I acrompanied them. The city was filled
to overflowing, but many have already
■one to tbe yards where tbey will be em
ployed. Tbe hobo element now has a
ensure to redeem Itaelf. On Monday
morning next the idle men about town
will get their last free meal from the city.
Those who are then idle may safely be
spotted as hobos. The} will be compel
led to leave town. If tbey will go peace
ably, all*;!! be well; if lot, tb« peupla
of Ya ima will be compelled to teach
them a severe lesson. That is the point
to which th* situation baa been reduced.
It is folly to experiment with the tramp
problem any longer.
Nelson Rich, the Proseer merchant, *aa
in the city this week to purchase a dry
ing apparatus for his new hop house.
Mr. Rich put out 40 acres of hops and
made no calculation until recently on
having any hops to pick the first year;
bnt the growth, he says, has been simply
amazing and he will have a yield of 800
pounds per acre. This is almost, if not

Mrs. C. J. Wii.ii nß:ncir. of Wortham,
Texas, saved the life of her child by ths
ana of Ayer's Cherry I'ectoral.
"One of my children had Croup. The
rase was attended by our physician, and w»i
supposed to he well under control. Ons
night I was startled by the child's hard
breathing, and on going to It found It stran
gling. It had nearly ceased to breathe.
Realizing that the child's alarmlmi rondltlos
had lifrnnu' possible In spite of the medicines
Riven. 1 reasoned that such remedies would
be of no avail. Having part of a battle "4
irrr'i Cherry Pectoral In the house. I gave.
tin- ohlld t«.r.-i- .limes, at short Intervals, and
antlmisly waited results From the moment
the Pectoral was given, the child's breathing
grew easier, and. In a short time, the was
sleeping quietly and breathing naturally
The child Is alive and well to-day, and 1 da
not hesitate to say that Ayer's Cherry Pec
