rr*i i.-KEi' »v A Bi v man. M. 1». ANACOKTKS MAB( 11 22 *BB4 We call attention to oar cheap dub lung rates with the Chicago Weekly News, one of the best goner. dI newspapers published in the east, whoso excellence is attested by the fact that the News has an average daily circulation of over lUO.OOU copies, and about tJd.OOO cooies for the weekly. The Whatcom Reveille rails at the Northwest Enterprise, for being late in publishing the news about the lynching ot the Indian, Louis Sam, in British Territory. But it must be remembered that the En terprise had not the same opportun ity to pet the news, its editor being a longdistance away, while Messrs. Nick and Jenklin were probably present, and for ought we know took part in the bloody and horrible pro ceedings. But never mind, the En terprise is willing that the Reveille ink stingers should bang for it, if it turns out that the Indian was in nocent, as the British Columbia pa pers all claim may be the case. Ship Building is being advocated by the British Columbia papers, on the ground that the raw material fur both wooden and iron ships ex* ist in unlimited quantities there, if a portion of the surplus labor on the Clyde could be transferred to Puget Sound, end the tariff, which protects the capitalist at the expense of the laborer were removed, there is nothing to hinder ship.building from becoming a great industry, on Puget Sound, as well as in British Columbia, where no restrictive tar iff prevails. But so long aa our present tariff prevails, other coun tries will go ou building ships at cheaper rates than our builders can turn them out, and the result will be, very few ships will .be built here till the tariff is removed. The Livingstone Corruption Fund. The Railroad Shareholders Ahbo. iation, under the inanugeme.it of John Livingstone, which proposes to raise a corruption fund of seven or eight million dollars to influence ibo courts, legislatures , press, and congress, in favor of the railroads, is either a formidable conspiracy against the rights and liberties of the people, or it is an attempt to raise money under false preten ses. This open and shameless at. tempt at the wholesale corruption and robbery of the entire people, by the combined money power of the railroads, should not receive more consideration at the hands of the people than the train robbers re. ceive, who practice on a small scale, against a few individuals, what this monstrous combination proposes to do within the limits of the law, against the population of the whole country. Against this threatening danger, ominous of the worst fears for the safety and liberty of the people, the entire press should raise u warning voice. Hhlnsaf Haws.

United we stand, divided we fall. ; It is also the motto of their custom ers. '] bo Louis Sum Lynching (Fun lh» Wtsimimur C'olriiil.ies j Conclusions hastily reached are very often erroneous. People fre : quently change their opinions, and a change of opinion implies an error of judgement. The fallibility ot all human judgement makes it all the more necessary that he should act with extreme caution before arriv ing at conclusions the consequences of which may be serious. The laws of all civilized countries provide many safeguards which are intend ed as a protection against injustice. A man cannot ho snatched up and tried for a serious crime until he has had fair and ample opportunities to vindicate his conduct. II our laws are at all in fault their fault lies in the opportunities they afford for the escape of ihe guilty. It is reported as a rumor which has gain ed considerable credence about Chiliwhack and Sumus that the In dian Louis Sam, lately lynched, had nothing whatever to do with the murder of which be was accused. There is a story in circulation which throws the suspicion of guilt in an entirely different direction. The work of the lynchers was done with both decision and haste, ai d nobody would be greatly surprised if it tar.iod out that these people have made a shocking blunder. An in. nocent man may have been rashly sent beyond the realms of recall while the guilty criminal is enjoying the fruits of his well-laid plans. We hope those rumors may be shown to haye no foundation. Al though only an Indian, Sam bad a life as precious to him as any of our jives are to us; and he was just as much entitled to the protection of the law. It is sad enough to reflect that a guilty man has been hanged uncondemned by any process of law but it would be much more sad if came to be known that he was iuno . cent. Those who leud tbemeelve * to this dangerous practice of sum* mary lynching take some terrible chances; and if some oftbem shoal d nppeu to etaad innocently with a rope about thoir necks, in the bands of a mob, (bey may become alive to the full extent ot the risks taken. Mob law must never be tolerated in British Columbia. Better allow 99 guilty persons to escape than have the blood of one inuooent victim up on our beads. BORN—at Vancouver, W.
