THE TBSEE ORE AT CAUSES.
Senator Daniel, of Virginia, occupied
the attention of the senate on Thursday
list in a well-directed argument in oppo
sition to the repeal bill, in which he said
he would attempt to demonftrate, as he
was confident he could, that the world
wide monetary convulsion was due to
three principal causes: First, the enor-
niooi increase in debt; second, the con
tinaoai and unprecedented (all in prices
(or over a quarter of a century; third,
contempt lor the bimetallic basis of credit
at the dictation of the European money
king*. He laid more money was needed,
and the repeal of the Sherman act would
hare a contrary effect. It would contract
the currency by 150,000,000 per annum.
He favored a Bound currency, every dollar
of which should be maintained at par
with every other dollar, and that it should
consist of gold, silver and |>aper money
and payable In them. In 1892, Daniel*
•aid, there were two opinions in which
there was a general concurrence. First,
the Sherman law ought to be rep* aled ;
and second, gold and silver onght to he
coined without discrimination or charge
for mintage. He thought those concur
rent opinions should now be embodied in
one act. Referring to the intimation of a
deal between southern and western sena
tors, he said he entertained the same
financial viewi he did long before he had
become intimately associated with the
westerners. The report of this alleged
deal was begotten in the fright of tlie
golditea of Wall street over the wide
spread sentiment against the desperate
effort of the plutocrats to override the
popular will on such vital matters of
THE TIDE HAS TVRSED.
The tide hu turned, positively anil un
mistakably; people step quicker, look
better, feel better and talk better.' One
who meet* and talks to business men
(eel* it at every turn. Already the t;reat
panic of '93 is being looked back to.
As a troth, things are better when we
think them so, and every one seems to
believe that the country has reached the
•end of tronblons time*—their believing
to will make it so.
Now let our people in their individual
and corporate capacity pull, work ami act
together, determined to spend and invest
their money in home enterprises and it
ail in their power to let others know the
unsurpassed adrauiages offered to a man
of small means with enterprise, who set
tle* in this section and tbe future will hnre
nothing in store for as but prosperity.
We have more to make us rich,
happy and contented than any o.her
people on the face of the earth. A climate
onequaled, a soil so fertile that when
"tickled with a hoe it langhs a crop," a
superabundance of all that is necessary
for the want* of human life; flowing
streams furnishing life and giving moist
ure to untold acre* and ready with their
joyous strength to put in motion the ma
chinery of unnumbered factories, product
ive valleys, cheap lumber, mountain.
emboweled with immeasurable wealth, a
population brave, hardy, willing to work
and knowing how, with a town in widen
"lack of confidence" did not close a door,
without an unoccupied house in it, and
not paralyzed with crowds of anemployed,
we have only to look forward and upward
and walk and work together in order to
plnek every blessing which nature has
given to man. Happy is the man who
receives a Yakima welcome in time to
share in the golden promisee of the beck
NOTE AND COMMENT.
Joseph G. Tuttle is the new publisher
of tbe Big Bend Empire. He has leased
that excellent property and enters upon
Its management with enterprise.
A reign of terror ia reported in North
Dakota. Outlaws appear to be numerous,
murders at the rate of two or three a day
at Fargo and train robberi •» and lesser
offenses of frequent occurrence.

Nevada object* to being annexed to
Utah. The objection ought to be sus
tained nntll tbe latter tenitory shall have
been cleansed of one of the foulest blot*
on the pages of the republic's history.
The Colfax city vagrant ordinance has
been pronounced unconstitutional by
Judge Sullivan. The court held that
eitiee other than the first class had no
power to pass such ordinances, intlictillg
imprisonment as a penalty.
M. B. Curtis, the flash actor of San
Francisco who was twice tried fcr the
murder of Policeman Urant and finally
acquitted, is dramatizing his eensational
trial and attendant situations. Well
known writers of melodrama in London
are now at work on it. "Sam'l of Posen"
expect* to make a fortune out of it.
There ia a paper published at Tomb
stone, Arizona, called the Epitaph. T.
Coffin is the publisher, W. Sexton is the
editor, Paul Graves runs the locals, Mark
Itedman is the foreman, Miss Angel is
one of the compositors, Alex Shroud is
business manager and Fred Hearse is
route agent. It is a live, wide-awake
newspaper, all the same.
Will Viaacber writes a three-column
article to the Tacoma A'nr> in defence of
toe World's fair commistionera from this
state and against the abusive arraign
ment published sometime ago by Ezra
Meeker. The voluble colonel has the best
of the argument, undoubtedly, but the
situation scarcely warranted the use of so
much billingsgate as employed by both of ■
the disputants. They have both passed
a great many of life's well-marked mile
atoue* and their experiences have been
sufficiently extensive and varied to be
•prinkle their locks with the frosts of
time. Tin Hkbald regrets to see them
become to boyishly pettish over so grave
a matter, for they are both able men in
their respective Hoes of business. We
trust that these gentlemen may have be
com* better natured era another World's
Mr shall hart been held at Chicago.
The editor of The Huau may be par
doned, possibly, for reproducing the fol

worthy source as that of the bright and

It is a source of pleasure to us again to
be permitted the enjoyment of a perusal
of tho spicily written, tersely expressed
and fearlessly edited pages of The Mv
HV./, Hon. R. F. Radebaugh's illustrated
weekly, now published in rapidly reviv
ing Tacoma. The paper is profusely
illustrated by one of the ablest snd most
original cartoonists in the land, W. O.
Andrew. All in all, it is just such a
paper as those interested in the great
northwest should have. It overlooks
trilling affairs of life in order to give vig
orous and valiant battle to the gigantic
monopolies that are consuming the very
vitals of the common concerns of this
J. Watermelon ri-all-up Reddington,
chief engineer of the I'uyallup Commerce
print factory, is making his quarterly tour
of the sagebrush districts in Eastern Ore
gon and Washington, weeding out his
rabbit crop, pruning down the volunteer
growth of coyotes mil fixing up his ex
tensive grasshopper runs. Meantime be
will keep an eye out for a fresh supply of
physical vijor. J. Wheelbarrow is an all

however, that he wastes so mucn of it in
constant improvement of his monarch of
Mrs. Bullivant. of Spokane, forcibly
illustrated the vehemence of the wrsth of
a woman scorned the other day. She
wonted her husband to kiss her, but the
cold-blooded rascal refused to do it,
whereat she got her little gun and shot
him. Then she shot herself. Both will
probably die. The man who refuses to
hiss lively woman when she invites
him to certainly challenges severe retri
bution, but whether or not Mr. Bullivant
deserved his fate may be judged only by
those who knew his wiff.
Adolph Knig, the levanting city treas
urer of Seattle, was cuptured in St. l'aul
on Mi.n.lay by Frank Crawford, a Sesttle
broker r.iio chanced to meet Krug as the
latter whs boarding a passenger train on
his way to Winnepeg. Crawford was not
looking for the embeziler at t he time, but,
recognizing, him and knowing of his
shortage and flight, simply took charge.
Krug protested piteously and then vio
leitly, but Crawford held him until
Mayor Ronald, of Seattle, could send an
officer for him.
Already those who were incited to mur
der and arson in order to obtain a slight
foothold in the over-estimated Cherokee
country are returning from their destruct
ive scramble in disgust, out of spirit and
much out of pocket. Theirs waa a sense
less snd profitless chase, but it serves to
show the violence with which a mania
may at times seize its victims and the
disastrous consequences that follow its
cultivation by a tendency to lawlessness
in an effort to attain the unattainable.
Attorney (ieneral Jonea confirmed the
decision of State Superintendent Bean re
garding the employment of teachers,
which vests the power uf such employ
ment in the new school board rather than
in the one retiring before the teachers so
employed enter on the discharge of their
duties. In this direction it seems that
tbe state authority is called upon to direct
where common courtesy might eaaily be
exercised if not expected.
Chief of Police Davis, of Tacoma, who
has just returned from the World's fair,
says there is vastly more crime in the
east than in the west. The chief and the
sensational pulpiteer of Tacoma have
evidently pursued their investigation*
upon different lines. However, the wild
and wooly west will ho civil enough to
extend sincere condolence to tbe few
good people of the wickedly wanton east.

Kiiiioh Hi itAiii: In your last week's
issue there is an account of a flagrant
vioation of domestic relations by a well
known buaineaa man of Spokane. The
Matement is added that Mr. M—, the of
fender,"isa prominent member of the Bap
tint church." The writer, having been
a member of said church front its incep
lion until recent date, can ««v that Mr.
M—'s prominence is mythical. The
prominence was not one'of interest in
clmrcli work. It would be unnatural
that it should tie so, aa he evinced no
spiritual life. In fact the presentation of
his name was quite unexpected on the
occasion of his better half's making an
exemplary profession of rclig<on one and
one half years since. As is too often the
case, little attention was paid to Ins per
sonal fitness, for obvious reasons, yet
with all tbe faults of the churches, there
are mi human institutions that, in thei'
teaching, compare with tbe excellence of
the Chriatian church. It is the palla
dium of moral worth and civil liberty.
If New Testament ehurvhes were i irctini
spect in their authority of "Thus saith
the Lord," regarding the "traditions of
men," and were more careful to obey Uod
than to please men, there would be fewer
instances of misrepresentation by un- j
worthy and unchristian members. A
church memhership, having no poaitive
experience of the new birth, (spiritual) i
and new life so plainly presented to '■
Nicodemus by :he (treat Teacher, must lx>,
wanting in saving grace and virtue and
be at best but a religious farce. Hence,
what else can be expected from unscript
ural cburch memberships, other than oc
casional church and social scandals such
as this. M. E. T of Chenev.

A warrant was ordered drawn from tha
road and bridge fund for $150 in payment
of draft of the Ootario I-and Co.
A request was made for sidewalk on
east side of Second street, between Chest
nut and Walnut. The council asked for
presentation of petition from the property
owner* along ssiil street in the specified
K. L. Sperry's request to erect a shest

Edward Whitson't delinquency in
opening the alley from First to Second
street, between It and C, was referred to
the committee on streets and ditches.
Report from Treasurer Kuechler in free
bjMt matter showed a balance of fund- ■
on hand of $53.25. He was instructed t«
turn it over to the city treasurer.
In the matter vl the petition for closing
business houses on Sunday, Captain
Kinu'»l'ury stated that the document was
a delusion and a snare; that there were
name* on it of people who ret ide mllea
away in the country, of children as youna
*s seven years and of tmsineas men who
never authorised the use of their names
on the petition. He therefore desired to
have the matter referred to another com
mittee to Investigate the charges he made
against the promnlgators of the move
ment. By suggestion of the mayor the i
same committee that haa had a month in '
which to make the desired investigation
was instructed to complete its task.
Warrants were ordered drawn in pay
ment of expenses incurred in conducting
the free soup house.
The man who paid (25 for the privilege
of conducting a shooting gallery in town
stated that he couldn't make expenses
and wanted his money back. Councilman
Reed, out of the goodness of his soul,
moved that he be given what he wanted
and allowed to go on his way rejoicing.
Kut Hi- council wisely ■ refused to do it.
Then the city patron desired to he per
mitted to conduct a chance game known
ms "the knife boat" free of charge. John
Reed moved that he tie allowed to do this
as some compensation for his loss on the
other fake, but there is another man who
pays »-.'i a quarter for that privilege, and
Mr. Reed and his unfortunate friend
attain Riiffered defeat, for the matter was
referred to the police committee and there
is no danger of that body poning in the
role of misguided philanthropists.
In the matter of the promissory note
said to have been given by McMurtrie to
cover possible shortage pending investi
gation, Capt. Kingsbury said that, after
McMurtrie had established his innocence
beyond doubt, they had no right to hold
the ex-official's note and the least the
council could do was to return the note,
if the city had it, and spread upon tlie
records a resolution fully exonerating Mc-
Murtrie. He prepared and submitted
the resolution. A committee consisting
of Kingshury, Reed and Carpenter was
instructed to put the affair in pro, er con
Reed moved that the ity marshal l>e
instructed to stop work on 0. W. John
son's brick playhouse and restaurant on
the ground that proper regard for the con
ditions of the ordinance governing the
construction of brick walls wss not shown.
Carried. The marshal had the work
stopped next morning, but the chairman
of the building committee signed a permit
immedistely for the construction of the
walls and the work goes merrily on.
Street Commissioner Leonard was
hauled over the coals for submitting indif
ferent and wholly unintelligible reports
concerning his official progress—the
amount of money he collects, what be
does witli it, the number of men he em
ployes, where they work and what they
accomplish. It was decreed by the coun
cil that he should do that hereafter.
Reed submitted an ordinance regula
ting the posting and distribution of bills
in the city limits and establishing a pen
alty for violation of the same. After the
passage of the ordinance, agreement could
not be made on the amonnt of license for
permission t/> post and distribute, bills, or
the extent of penult v to impose for a vlo
lution of the ordinance; so the matter
whs tabled indefinitely.
The action awarding city printing con
tract to E. M. Reed on Jnlv 17, 1893, was
reconsidered and the city clerk instructs I
to advertise for new hids.
City Attorney Murane staled that he
had by stipulation arranged to have
the city's appeal case in the supreme
court heard at the October term. A war

meeting of the state Fair.
The public will be glad to learn that
half of the enmity bonds in the amount
of $10,000 for the payment of Yakima
county's proportion of the price of tbe
liilson place aa a site for the state fair
grounds has been sold and that the com
mission, have taken possession of '.be
property by virtue of a bond given for a
deed to be executed on the Ist of next
June. President Parker says that work
will be begun very soon on the track
and possibly on the roadway leading to
it. Everything will be put in shipshape
for the fair season of 1894 and much prep
aration is now in progress by outside par
ties to avail themselves of the advantages
incident thereto. The president's corre
spondence with interested parties through
out the northwest is becoming volumin
ous, and the manner in which interest
is already being manifested in next year's
fair is the signal for a substantial interest
at home in the progress of the work of
perfecting preparation for the event.
The demand that * ill be made incident
ally on the city's public spiritednem in
the way of supplying suitable accom
modations for those who will attend the
state fair will tie no small item in the gen
eral arrangement for the success of the
meeting. Notice taken of this fact in
