It is a nark da? iv the history of Wenatchee when its chief executive publically takes a stand against the enfol cement of the law. Such au event as this must be looked upon iv the light of a calamity. It is a dis tinct retrogression and something that must attract the instant attention of the community. When the mayor of tins city declares that any law is a dead letter, when he declares that one fourth of the Uws on the statute hooks were never meant to be enfoio ed, he is not ouly giving voice to sentiments which are anarchistic and totally out of keeping with the best intervests of our commonwealth, bat he is assuming a power which is not his, viz, that of interpertiug the law. Does Mr. Littletield imagine that he was elected mayor of Wenatchee to construe the laws according to his wishes or accordiug to the wishes of those to whom he looks for counsel ? Does he imagine that his judgment is better than that £of the best legal talent which our city affords or better than the judgment of the body of men who enacted the laws? It is fair to assume that the laws made by a repre sentative body of men from this city and for the government of this city, are just laws and are for the best in terests of the general public. Who then is this individual that he should say that these laws should or should not be enforced; The mayor of this city takes oath to enforce the laws of the oity not to interpret then The people of this town should force Mr. Littlefield to carry out his sworn duty. A movement is is on foot in this country to limit salaries to $100,000. Most of us would he content to accept that amount aud pledge onr-tel yes never to ask for another raise. will be useless to try to tell Mi. Bryan anything about world politics when he returns, for will he not know himself, havug been there to see? Tom Lawson threatens to make his living by his pen. It rnav be tough on Tom when his artcles have to be sub mitted wholly on thier merts. Possibly the czar is glad as he reads the Manchurian disnatohe* that his beloved army is so far away and that the walking is so bad. Russia's freedom of the press is iv full effect as long as tne press does not say anything to displease the gov ernment. Oyama should be careful. The deadly banquet may do to him what Russian bulets did not. No man who has the faintest ray of hope in bis breast will buy a neck tie for himlself this week. One side or the other in the fight between T. Lawson and the "system" is going to have a bard finish and from present indications it is not going to he the - • system. " It will he an cgrpeable departs re from past traditions if many of the senators are not seized with a dpsire to get up and make long speeches about the weather every time the pure food bill comes up forjconsideratiou. The hear that walks like a man has developed a terribly rough hug in its own tan. ily circle. KILLING 500 TARTARS DAILY LONDON, Deo. 23. — A dispatch to the Evening Standard from Constant inople says that the Turkish consul at Batoum reports that the Armenians are massacring Tartrs at the rate, of 500 daily.

Potte fell into the water in attempt ing to cross the viaduct over tne Cahokia creek.
