DAILY AND WEEKLY C. A. Forksman, Publisher. TELEPHONh 26 Entered at the Lewiston Postoffice as second class mail matter. Qne year in advance.......................$2.50 Six months.................................... 1.50 Three months.............................. .75 Official Paper of Nez Perce County National Republican Ticket: FOR PRESIDENT WILLIAM McKINLEY, of Ohio FOR VICE-PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT, of New York Lies conceal a multitude of sitis "The hottest day I ever saw," arrives several times every year. If politicians were mules every body could ride till after election. The politicians all claim a copy right on the big I during cam paign years. Though the whirlwind is an an cient reaper the blow-hard is not always a good harvest hand. Ananias, as a liar, compares to a certain politician in this city as the old-fashion sickle compares to a modern combined header and thresher. The reservation settlers owe a multitude of politcal debts. Every politician in the land wants to close his accounts in November. It would be more disgraceful to pay some of these debts than to go into bankruptcy. The jealousy of the commanders of the allied Christian forces is stronger than their fears that the heathens will murder our legation at Pekin. When the powers of the civilized world can conquer this jealousy, it will be nn easy matter to subdue their armed foes. The democratic party is under the thrall of the worst sort of im perialism. Imperialism to be im perialism must necessarily have a despot, dictator, or tyrant to wield the secpter of imperialistic power. Bryan, like a despot, makes the laws of the party, like a dictator he holds the reins and like a tyrant he takes off the btads of such who resist and do not bow to his im perial will. President McKinley and Secre tary of State Hay have taken a position in the Chinese affair that has attracted the admiration of all conservative people. This govern ment is now the only great power that has not been ttnpelled into a practical declaration of war by rumors of the outrages committed by mobs at Pekin. The attitude of our officials has been the only logical, conservative course. The general belief is that the outrages were committed by a mob, if they were of the serious nature indi cated by the press reports. Irre pressible mobs have committed out rages under all Christian govern ments. The responsibility is the all-important oue in this Chinese case. If the outrages were com mitted, as reported, and the gov a ernment was in sympathy with the Boxeis, this declaration of war is not altogether inconsistent with international law. At any rate, with all of their boasted civiliz ation, the powers of Europe have been swayed by passion in a man ner that must be viewed, from a legal standpoint, as the action of a mob is viewed. Our executive has taken a true and wise course. He says, in effect, that if the govern ment of China is back of the Box ers a state of war exists. If only a mob has committed these out rages, no matter how great, a dec laration of wat on our part would be a breach oi international law and a disgrace to a civilized gov ernment. It is a source of satis faction to behold the exalted posi tion we occupy at this time, owing to the wise course of our officials. If it transpiies that we have cause later to know that not only a mob must he subdued, but the govern rnust be met in battle on behalf of justice, we are still in an envia ble position. McKinley's position at this time has been a lesson for the civilized world. This act makes him one of the great rulers of the world today. He has marked a progressive era in Christ ian government and in civilization. A Nuisance to the Public Some few weeks ago the city council passed an ordinance which was gotten up by the city attorney for the benefit of the public, de claring that all animals running at large in the city limits would be empounded. Since then many complaints have been heard in which it is reported that a number of horses and cows are running at large on Normal bill, making an unusual disturbance tramping on sidewalks, arousing the residents from their peaceful slumber, and breaking into yards, eating and tramping up some of the beautiful lawns situated on Normal hill. It is reported that last night much damage was done to lawns and at least 20 horses were on the streets and prancing up and down the sidewalks as if dancing to the music of some brass band. The city authorities state that the ordinance is not broad enough to permit them to get rid of ihis nuisance without a personal cost to the officer in charge. The only alternative is for the citizeus to take active steps and proceed to abolish the nuisance themselves. This would necessitate the having of several cowboys to make the round up every night and place the animals in litubo and call on the city marshal to pioceed with a sale. If impounding animals will not be a cause to prevent owners from allowing their stock to run at large, then an organized movement should be started against them and they be made to pa# for all the damage. The citizens themselves should rise to the occasion if they want relief in the matter. ) Lake House Now Open. Thomas Oliver, proprietor of the Lake House, Waha, desires to state to the pub lic that his summer resort is now open for the season. Those desiring to spend a few days or months at some mountain resort during the hot season can find no nicer or more convenient place in this section than the Lake House. Just 23 miles from Lewiston and situated on the beautiful Lake Waha, it should lie a ver itable paradise for those who desire to escape the heated term in the lower alti tude. Fine fishing and abundance of game are some of the attractions. Those desiring to make the trip to the Lake House can leave their orders with Ed Fountain at the Hotel Grand, where ar rangements have been made for their transportation. » 86-im. Houses lor Sale.
