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.’*
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.
