But the editor of this paper has seen a communication from one of the head officials of the Great North ern, stating that owing to money conditions and to the pressure of building contracts already let for 1908, no new depot would be built at Wenatchee this year. This intelligence will come as a great disappointment to those citi zens of Wenatchee who feel a pride in the growing town, and who have long been ashamed of the inadequaie structure which the Great Northern retains for the use of its heavy pas senger traffic at this point.

Up CbAaa's sleeve. The world wiD refuse to take rerioru* ly this vague talk about a transforma tion in China mtil something really happens. It is Dow said that this con dition will be m-t on the approaching Chinese new yea - by the abdication oi the dowager em;>resß, whose rule has no strict parallel v the history of em pires. What of cfae good aud the- bad in China should be charged to thejslave girl whose pretty face lifted her to the mastery of 400,000,000 brings will per haps never be known. Wherever the balance lies the passing of Tzu ITsi from the throne cannot leave cause tot regret. The world demands the trans formation of China, whether the nativ* populate is ripe for it or not, and the aged ruler is credited with the sense to know th*tt the task of guiding the ship on its new course is for younger hands. The succession to the Imperial throne of China is in a state of sadly compli cated uncertainty. There is a strong antidynastic fen'iny; prevalent through out the empire and a multiplicity of claimants. There n[e mnnv clever minds in China and several powerful viceroys holding liberal and progressive views. It may be that a constitution will be adopted as a notice to the pow ers that the Celestials are trying to be ap to date in government and must be let aloue to work out the'r own salva tion. Again, a ruler of warlike vigor might be expected to restore the em pire to its ancient rank as a military power. Vast Jinnies have been gsith ered and trained and equipped in mod era style. Where the machinery of war is created there is usually a public sentiment to demand a head capable of using it. Whatever the outcome it is plain from the agitations stirring this vast aggregation of people that China is moving either forward or backward —forward to a higher national civilizs tion or backward to national anarchy, with tribal divisions making policies and wajfing war on their own hook. In other words, signs point to transforms tion or partition as China's fate. Government of Whimseyt. This country has been drifting to ward personal government in late years at au alarming pace. Types of the infamous autocratic rule as endup ed in Russia spring up on all sides. There every petty official thinks that In his district he is the business end of the long arm of the infallible czar. In- j noeeuts are flogged, crammed into duu geons, robbed under the guise of fines and even sent to Siberian horrors at the whim of some man whom accident has foisted int.; power. For some rea son there has developed all over this country a tendency on the part of a cer-1 tain class of officials to do re-1 gardless of precedent or righr. A case iv point is that of the young woman who was tricked into the cus tody of immigration officials and order ed to be deported without a shadow of chauce to clear herself of the charge trumped up against her by a man in terested in getting her out of the coun try. Publicity called the attention of Washington to the case, and a decent respect for individual right and public opinion-led to a halt 'n the proceedings. It was admitted that there is no war rant for the action, simply a clause in the immigration laws, placed there for' an entirely different purpose, that could , be stretched to justify this case of per- Mi alien. Government by law must necessarily ' give discretion to the executors of the law. But a decent respect for public \ sentiment would guard officials from: making the law either a yoke or a by- j word. The American people will never} five up the point that the accused shall be considered innoceut until guilt is proved. And if the law is to be stretch ed at all It should be t > favor the sub ject of doubt. Whims may be merely escape gaps for the hysterical impulse. An official wants to make a record and blazes away at the first target. More official sanity and less official vanity is the need of the hour. Still They Come. Chas. T.
