ni.t nri t, u 011. rmnu MMNC, IN; IST t. ii>O;. The Prevailing Topic Many different opinions are ex pressed concerning the Sunday clos ing movement in this city, and many are the . onjeetnres regarding its con tinuance A fewelaiin it has come to st.i\" while some of our g*iid citizens i ontend it is merely a virtuous -pasm. midway iietwei-n times of election: the weather being warm, saloon keepers and their patrons might just as weli have a little recreation on Suii(la\s but that when the rain I*'- gin< to fall in Autumn, ami especially in the on-coming political campaign, the lid will be off. and hilarity will again become rampant. One tem perance man. and a Socialist too. had the temerity to remark that this Sunday closing movement, in the Sound country, cannot in the nature of tilings long continue, under the present social system: that the sa loon is the poor man's club-house. Just think of jxHir laUnvrs coming into town from a logging camp, wet through to the skin, on Sunday! Where will they find shelter except in a saloon? They cannot get out of the rain to IM- sheltered in the parlors of any W. C. T. IT.1 T . organization, or within the walls of any church build ing. If the good people of Olvmpia would furnish these' itinerants a place where they might lie comfortable, there would l)e more merit in these efforts of would-be reformers. The STANDAKH will not at this time pre dict the outcome, but will simply say we will see what we shall see. And t>» smooth the way to a pucifl eation that may result in the most good to all concerned, a few sugges tions are given, and are intended in the host of spirit for all interested. While administration of statutory law requires the will of the people to hack it, it may be well to consider the Is-st means of obtaining that support. As long as the liquor traf fic is licensed, the prohibitory re former is handicapped in his opitosi- j lion to it. It is only when laws made to "regulate and control" are openly and deliberately violated, that reformers are endowed with a weapon that may be efficiently, at times, wielded against them. It will always Ih> liable to happen as long as the de cision of the United States Supreme Court stands authorizing the passage of laws to deal with the traffic as a "nuisance." Now, it seems to us that if an open town is needed, due consideration should lie given as to the width of the door it is proposed to open, Why? simply to secure that popular will that constitutes the essence of law. Divorce the dunce hall, bands of music and street dis play from the liquor traffic and we think that many of our prominent citizens will see a way to endure much that may not be obtruded upon the public gaze. In the close scram ble for the few dollars floating about during the closure of the logging catnps, there is of course a desire to secure a proper share of them, and when the inclement season comes on, there is some force to the opinion of our socialist friend that the saloon may be, of necessity, the only place of practical hospitality open to home less wayfarers. This admonition, as before stated, is probably the only means of secur ing a permanent peace. If the Sun day or gambling laws are too strin gent, proceed in a legal way for their repeal, or at least refrain from flout ing violations of the strict letter be fore the public eye. ———— THUNDER AND LIGHTNING! —If any l>ody says that we do not have occa sionally the old-fashioned orthodox peals of heaven's artillery on the Northwest Corner, just tell him that he is a prevaricator, and belongs to Teddy's Ananias club. Wednesday, just after midnight, we had a liter ally magnificent display of lightning and a continuous roar of what might have been emitted by a thousand giant crackers rolled in one! It made timid people hug their pillows closer than usual and pray with un usual fervency! The tumult was ac companied by a deluge of rain. IVORY A PROTECTION FROM LIGHT NING. —Mrs. J. C. Krause, of Spo kane, had a very narrow escape from lightning at Helena, Montana, a few days ago. She was carrying on um brella, which had an ivory handle, during an electric storm, when light ning struck the rain-tent, setting it on fire. Strange to say, she was un touched, and her escape is attributed to the fact that the ivory handle, be ing a non-conductor, stopped the passage of the electric fluid to her bod j'. THE Avernus wheel will doubtless be the successor of the Ferris wheel, at all world's entertainments of the future. It is somewhat after the Btyle of the Ferris wheel, only, in stead of a steady vertical circular motion, the Avernus consists of a switchback motion, with many other exhilerating movements. It is to lie the forthcoming sensation in Lon don this season. UETIRINO director of the Mint at Washington has been for years en gaged in obtaining information for an estimate of the amount of gold in the United States at the present time.

Hail it not btvn for the question able character of the testimony of a j confessed niulti-innnlerer. it is quite 1 probable that the verdict of the Hay wood jury, rendered Sunday morn ing. after 21 hours consideration, might have been quite different. Or chard may have told the truth, but it is not strange that Judge Woods would hesitate to instruct for convic tion on the testimony of a man of such blood-tainted nature, although lie may have given his "confession all the fervor of death-bed reix-nt ! anee. It is unfortunate, however, that the cold-blooded assassination of Gov. Steunenberg should go unavenged, if it lie from the infamous character of the only witness capable of giving, if assumed to be true, all the circum stantial and detailed testimony show - ing a deeply laid conspiracy. The great injury done by the ver dict is to render uncertain the pun ishment of machinations on a large scale that serve to impair confidence in our system of government. Pun ishment for conspiracy, involving murder and destruction of property, should be adequate and sure, or what better is it, except in degree, than the nihilist rule of Russia? Unfortu nately the verdict just rendered, re ceives plaudits from many advocates of lalor who are influenced more by passion than reason: people like Debs, who cannot, or do not. see that our whole system of Government is weak ened just in proportion as punish ment of capital crimes is rendered indefinite and uncertain. Rejoicing in a finding that is at best doubtful, is virtually condoning the crime in volved. Favor or partiality should not sway judgment in such important matters, and it may result that the leniency of the jury, under the Judge s instructions, will lead to still farther transgressions of law, under seeming hardships inflicted by a mon eyed power. Nobody who has ever witnessed the warped judgment un der excitement that occasionally sway men under vigilante rule, will be at a loss to understand this alarming trend of the human mind. Men —the best of men —often grow " wild" un der great excitement and this voices the opinion here expressed, that the verdict may foment a feeling that will tend to still further increase the tension of feeling between Capital and Labor. Only witness the demonstration in Portland Monday night, a street pa rade, mass meeting, rabid speeches, red badges, and even the proposition for running Haywood, indicted for being an accomplice in the murder of Gov. Steunenberg, for President of the United States at the next general election. Out upon such folly! TWELVE FOSTEH-MOTIIKKS.—A lit tle orphan-girl in Des Moines, lowa, three years of age, is so fortunate as to have an even dozen of foster mothers, from the best of social cir cles. She was taken from the Child rens' Home and formally adopted by the young ladies, and from now on will have excellent care, in place of the neglect and cruelty which inaug urated her brief stay on Karth. The child's name is Emily Haven, and the plan is that she shall live with each of her patrons a month in succession, somewhat after the fashion of the "boarding round" of rural school teachers in the olden times. The precedence in this rotation has been decided by lot, and there is little doubt but that the little miss will have an easy and enjoyable time, if, indeed, she is not spoiled by indul gence. STII.L. ANOTHER NAVY YARD ON TIHH COAST. —A third navy yard on the Pacific coast is contemplated by government—at San Diego, Cal.— which, with Mare Island and Brem erton. is thought will be sufficient for the needs on the part of the navy which will undoubtedly remain as signed to this side of the continent. San Diego is said to be an admirable place for such dock. It is advantag eously situated for coal supplies over land, if water communication is cut off. and may be made impregnable. It is also on a line with the projected Panama canal, making it an advan tageous coaling-point. DOES WOMAN EVER DO JUSTICE TO WOMAN? —Lady Wolsey is reported as saying of her own sex, that wo man was created of the scraps left after the creation of man, and that, moreover, she is " two parts cat and only one part angel." If that lie true, we are glad that the angelic quality has so moderated and refined the cat-like qualities that nothing is left of them but grace, beauty and affection, which are added to the measure of the heaven-endowed an gelic nature of woman. LITTLE Ethel Johnson, who saved two lives at the wreck of the Colum bia, one of them of a grown man who could not swim, was the recipient Saturday of a huge golden butterfly, its wings sparkling with diamonds, as a token of appreciation of the lit tle heroine. It is safe to say she is the happiest girl in Portland. THE BREMEKTON DRY-DOCK. —F. McClellan & Co., of Seattle, are the lowest bidders for construction of what will be the largest government dry-dock in the country, at Bremer ton, It will be 652 feet long, 115 feet wide and 38 feet deep. The bid was $1,192,284. There were four other bids submitted. IT is now said that Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw will exploit her connection with the White murder as a means of enhancing box-office receipts on the stage. Pastor Bays Kissing Is Devilish. ! Another preacher attempts to scale the heights of fame by tabooing the kiss, which he calls "a devil." He declares that " the kiss is doing more to fill hades than the whisky devil, the drug devil, and all other devils rolled in one." lie suggests " hold ing of hands" as a substitute, but he probably don't hnovv that even the grasp of palms, may as the poet says' end with A kirn*. Which rhyme* with MI'MI. May lent! to HOtio-1 rise." The dominie declares that "lovers' should not kiss till they are married." i Well, that depends. To the pure all things are pure. In the righteous; there is no guile. The truly good may not be free from suspicion. Ad-1 initting the truth of these axioms, it! is difficult to fathom the resourceful - nature of this teacher of righteous-! nest in arriving at such a confident I assurance of the hellish imiiort of an * act that dates back to the natal morn. In biblical times, probably no rus totn was more used as a syml N>l of many shades of religious fervor than ' the kiss. It meant reverence and subjection to a superior (seel Sam. 10.1; 1 Kings lti. IS; Luke 7. 45); i of spiritual submission (Psalms 2. 12): of love and affection (Gen. 27, 26 and 27, 1 Sam. 20, 41); of reverence and adoration (Hosca IS. 2): of holi iness, proceeding from, and a pledge of Christian love (Romans 16, 16, 1 Cor. 16, 1). and of righteousness and peace (Psalms 85, 10). Now it really seems that a custom sanctioned by even this meagre refer ence to the many uses of the kiss as a pious reminder of duty and obliga tion, that this characterization of the custom as of devilish origin or sug gestion, is rather sweeping. The record will liear us out that there are even pastors who have kissed, with out any thought, we surmise, of it being a religious duty, but are we to classify them as possessed of a devil ish impulse to perform this crowning act of what may be, and doubtless is till proven otherwise, an evidence of pure affection? The act is solely a natural act of affection of most peo ple. as witness the kisses of child hood, or of parents and child. There is nothing at all suggestive of wrong in the pure platonie kiss, which, aside from its religious uses, is far the largest classification of labial contact as an expression of individual feeling. It is surmised that even Adam, in Paradise, was impelled to greet Eve with a chaste, reverential kiss. If he did not, we have little respect for our remotest ancestry. Just imagine our first parents sitting under the Tree of Knowledge simply " holding hands," as Rev. 1). L. Bass, of Cal vary Baptist Church, of Cairo. 111., recommends! HANKER Revs Hours C.oi.n HRICK. —While people are prone to attribute the purchase of gold bricks invar iably to the rural gentry, we have discovered that by far the larger pro portion of such frauds are perpetrat ed upon the "Smart Alecs" who wear Derby hats and striped trous ers. A special from Guthrie, Okla homa, states that the President of the American National Hank of that city was, on the 27th ult., swindled out of SIO,(MM) cash paid for a brick that contained more brass than its owner's face. The swindle was per petrated by substitution. The gov ernment assay declared that the brick submitted for analysis contained 80 cent, gold, but it was a base counter feit that was placed in the banker's vault, and it was not till several hours afterward that the fraud was discovered. CHICAGO has discovered that the suicide mania rages highest when the weather, from any cause, is un congenial. This conclusion is based upon the records and observetions of the Coroner and the Weather Fore caster. May was excessively hot and broke the record with 55 cases of sui cide. The total for January, Febru rry, March, April and May give an aggregate of 192 cases, an average of 38.4. The effect is also apparent in all sorts of crime. In the first five months of the current year, 75 mur ders were reported, of which 22 were accredited to May. A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE IN TEXAS. —lt is reported that a terrific heat visited a strip of country about three miles long and two wide, near Mc- Gregor, Texas, last Monday. It last ed an hour and twenty minutes and the mercury rose to 179 degrees in the sun and 117 in the shade. Scores of people were overcome, and horses, cattle, hogs and poultry dropped dead. The visitation was accompa nied by a peculiar haze, hanging like 'a veil in the sky, which appeared to move over the area affected. UNCLE Sam has a stringent regula tion prohibiting automobiles from traveling over the Federal roads in all the National reserves, but the drivers of the devil-wagons out here have bid defiance to the rule, and are likely to have a " tire punctured" if they persist in such disrespect. Con gressman Cushman says the govern ment will probably station a Deputy U. S. Marshal on the ground to see that the regulation is complied with hereafter.

Some queer things illustrate what " 102 in the shade"' means on this coast. In Portland, Tuesday, at that temperature, the asphaltum sidewalks melted and the passerby was only held from inferno by a thin skin-covering, while passing over the molten substratum. The iron bridges became so expanded by the heat that the "draws" could not 1M; operated, until the firc-lxiat had cooled them with copious streams of water. The extreme heat set off the automatic tire-alarm l»ox at Hlake- McFall's paper warehouse, bringing several tire companies on the run. to extinguish flames that had not yet developed from impending sj)ontan eous combustion. The tem]M-rature as recorded by the official tube. 100 I'ect alnive the ground and subject to such breezes as might 1M- stirring, recorded 102 deg. It is said the mercury ascended to 122 in unpro- tected positions. On July 21!, 18511. the same record was made in Port land. but the higher humidity of the atmosphere, Tuesday, rendered the late experience much more oppres sive. Not only Portland, but Salem and other cities on the Willamette, and at Seattle, Olympia and all other places on Puget Sound, the same ex perience was felt, Reports from The Dalles, (!ray's llarlxu - , and other widely separati-d jioints leave the as surance that the extreme heat was general all over the Northwest. The weather ottiee in Portland ac counts for this ©xißTicnce by the fact that the prevailing wind was from the interior, instead of the eoast, or ocean, as is customary this time of the year, preserving to some degree the equilibrium of the temperature ranges. In other words, Mr. Heals, the District Forecaster at Portland, says: "The high temperature ex perience was caused by the barome ter being low over the Willamette Valley and high over F.astern Hritish Columbia, and for this reason the winds blow from the interior of the continent and not from the ocean as is usual at this season of the year. Winds front the interior are always hot in midsummer." Tiir. KI.KS' TKtutiiti.fi EXPERIENCE. —lt is said that fully 3,000 persons were prostrated at Philadelphia, dur ing Klks' parade, on the 18th tilt. This was due to the magnitude of pageant with the mercury at 02 in the shade. There were said to have been 50.0(81 men in line, and several hundred thousand men. women and | children collected on the streets to witness the grand march, or on the 50 grand stands, erected on the line. Soon after 2 o'clock, the F.xalted Huler of Philadelphia lixlge, tele phoned (!rand F,xalted Ruler Melvin, from St. Joseph hospital. "In the name of humanity have the parade stopix'd. The hospitals are full, many of the doc tors and nurses are victims of the heat, and cannot give attention to the overwhelming man lier of patients being brought in." Hut Melvin could not be reached in the crowd. A drenching rain fell before the procession had completed its march, which gave some relief. Notwithstanding the immense num ber of prostrations, it is indeed fortu nate that only one death was re corded. COM r A RATI V K DENSITY OK POPULA TION. —According to the last general census, the Twelfth, taken seven years ago, Rhode Island, the smallest State, had the largest population to tin square mile, 407; Massachusetts came next with 340. New Jersey 250, and Connecticut 187. From a subsequent partial enumeration, made in 1005. New York bail 148, Maryland 123, Pennsylvania 150, Ohio 100. These are the only States exceeding the 100 mark. Washington was accord ed, in 1005, an estimated imputation of 000,(810, which would give her an area distribution of a little over that fated number 13. IT is a comfort to know that the wild blackberry has refused to enter the liigh price combination but, with the Puget Sound clam, is battling for popular rights.— Mger. Quite the contrary. The supply is large, but the prices here arc 7rom 75c to $1 per gallon.

SEATTLE has aunexed so much ter ritory in the past few years, that she is now sixth in area of the cities of the United States. Those limits in clude 78 square miles.

Threaten a Still Further Appeal. In tlio cast' of Clara E. Sylvester anil May Sylvester against the State of Washington, involving the title of the old capitol grounds, wherein the State Supreme Court has decided ad versely to the Sylvesters' claim, ques-' tions have arisen as to the probabil ity of the ease being taken to the United States Supreme Court, for a final decision. It is likely, in the interim, the matter of the erec-1 tion of the Governor's mansion will lie deferred. There seems to be no 1' ederal question on which to base a review in the Federal tribunal. The State Court held there was not sulli-j cient evidence of the collateral agree ment. establishing any trust relation between the first grantee and the Territory of Washington, by which in certain contingencies the title should revert to Sylvester and his heirs at law. and further plaintiff's had not prosecuted their claims to the land in controversy with dili gence. These propositions, whether correct or incorrect propositions of law. are sufficiently broad to dispose of the case, without resort to any consider ation of the provisions of the United States Constitution and acts of Con gress relative to the subject-matter: therefore it would necessarily and legally follow no foundation for a re view has been laid. Furthermore, in the event of a final adverse division, the State has the right to condemn land for a capitol site under the law of eminent domain. It is said the State Itoard has concluded to go ahead and erect the gubernatorial structure. Whose Ox Is Goredf A correspondent, writing from Se attle, this week, notes the fact that every newspaper except the Slur suppressed the news that the wife of Rev. 11. C.
