ENFORCE THE LAWS.
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.

Possibly the czar is glad as he reads

SAVES THREE LIVES
IN FOURTEEN MONTHS
ST. LOIUS. Dec. 23.—Offic-n Dan
McCarthy, of the East Sr. Louis
police force, made his third rescue in
foureteen months last night, when lie
saved the lite of William Potte, of
1600 Parsons avenue, East St. LoniS.
Potte fell into the water in attempt
ing to cross the viaduct over tne
Cahokia creek. Officer McCarthy,
who is known among his fellow oflic
ers as " Big Dan," was standing on
the hank of the creek at the time and
saw the man fall. He pulled off his
coat and plunged into the icy water.
After struggling with the man for
several minutes, the officer swam with
him to the shore.
At the time of the former rescues,
the officials of the East St. Louis
police department urged McCarthy to
forward his lecord to the trustees of
the Carnegie hero fund, bat the offic
er would not do so. It is thought that
in view of this third rescue his name
will be sent to the trustees by friends.
