V C . lv \\ M \N. M f>. AN.'COHTES MAHrll 20 189* The Samish Suicide, The depressing effect of the lonely life led by the settlers while prov ing up their claims is again illus trated in the case of the rancher Young, on the Samish, who commit ted suicide in his cabin two weeks ago. He was found with a gun by bis side, so placed that its contents were discharged into his breast. A spring worked by the foot, was attached by a string to the trigger, with which he had fired the gut; Foul play has not been suspected in. this case, although if a motive could he shown for murder ami robbery, It would have been easy enough for the perpetrator to allay suspicion, by placing the gun as described at* ter the deed was committed. The* weather has been mild and the sky sunny for the last Ifve or six weeks, with 011I3' a little rain at long intervals, forming the most perfect climate for spring oj erations on the farm and gardens. There has been no chilly weather during this time, nor any very warm days. Children play out of doors all day long and most of the time bare footed. The ground is dry and the fields green wilh vegetation. This is in marked constrast wilh the same latitude in the eastern states, and must soon render this desirable climate the most densely populated portion ot the country. . Traffic in Land. The doctrine of Henry George that ownership of land by individ uals should be abolished, and land like water should be free for the equal use vf all, jf illustrated by the practice of tttd Columbia river In dians, whose chiefs recently met Captain Upham, at Umatilla, and stated that the whites are jumping their lands, and .ordering them away. Oe ?isel to taso up damns and sec ure homes for their families they said, “Buying and selling land was contrary to their religion. The great “Tyee” (Spirit) made them from the dust of the earth, and after the few years of weary wandering on its surface, they returned to its bosom and again mingled with and became part of the land which >tbe white man buys and sells. It Is the same, as dealing in (heir own flesh and blood Their religion forbids them to deal in the land. God made the hind, and it wps 1 ko (he air and the water, free for all; if one location did not suit them they ought to have the right to move.” The News says “the chief occupation of these Indians i« raising burses, which will soon be gone for lack of room, and unless their religious scruples as regards the traffic iu land can be overcome, it is only a question of a short time when their only foot bold will 1 e on the reservations.’* POLITICAL. The live political issues now be fore the American people may all be incorporated under the three beade of the land, the labor, and the money problems. Proper legisla tion in tbo interest of the people, regulating the distribution of land, would prevent corperations and in dividuals from acquiring and mon opolising large tracts to the exclu sion of the masses. Protection of the latoriaguriaases from the avarice of the employers, who combine the forces of capital, monopoly and a tariff favoring the manufacturer, while it taxes the consumer, would place the working elasscs above the chronic want and deprivation now prevalent among them everywhere. An 1 the of a nation. al bank ms; system hy which money would be loaned on u r oo i security to the peoples! 0 per cent, the price paid for it now by the government on its national bonds, and doing away with the present system which al lows the banks to get 3 per cent from the government, and ,10 per cent from ttie people at the same time, thus realizing L's per cent on their money, which is usury, enable* ing them to become millionaires at the expense of all who use the mon ey, and resulting in enormous wealth in the hands of the few, with increasing poverty, or linari•> cial ruin among the industrial clas ses. Neither of the old political parties will grapple with those live issues, so pregnant with the inter ests and welfare of the entire peo ple. Politicians of both parties have something else to do besides looking after the land laws, or the welfare of the laboring classes, or a correct financial sj’stom based upon the interests of the people. They find enough to do to get into office first, and after that all their time is requird to look after the spoils of office. GENEKAL NEWS. \ A storm laanch is to ho built ior the Alaskan waters.
