Outraged Court Orders the
Sheriff Into Irons.
1 !»rre Will Be More Fun Than a
Box of Monkeys When Ihe
Tap <'omes off.
After three weeks of t»tudy over it,
Judge Mcl>onnld has cooeladed that
Sheriff Canott amailed the "honor and
dignity" of the court when be told the
occupant of the bench that he consider
ed the fiction in the Bugh Boyle cane
the "d—dest rotteneet thing he bad ever
Keen in a no-called court of justice," and
that the court itself «hn "standing in'"
with the peopk who broke (be jail and
let Clifford out.
William Larkin, who serves hh body
guard for the judge, at an expense of -ivi
a day to the county, "iih persuaded to
pur hiniH" If in front ami subscribe to an
affidavit charging Sheriff Oanutt when
he cussed the court with lining the fol
lowing disrespectful and contemptuous
lnni»nag>' on the occasion when the court
nent for Hugh Boyle and appointed Tom
Neill mid Shorty Brown aw attorneys
and then Kent him into a private room
with "Shorty:"
"He (meaning Bugh Boyle) has made
partial confession, ami 1 whs in a fair
way to get information which would
convict several men in Colfax who are
criminals, but yon. who have sworn to
enforce the law and administer justice,
are standing in with these men and
helping them thwart justice. I want to
tell yon that [consider this the damndest
roitene«t proceeding I ever naw in a so
calkd court of justice."
Sheriff Canntt does not deny the
words with which he is charged He
naid them, he meant them, and he in
tend* to back them, even if the court
doeH totter on its throne.
There in a prospect of some contribn
ti■ > n -s to the gaiety of the county etui-
I >mijzn which will educate the people in
the way their affairs have been con
ducted. The court orders the sheriff to
show cause September 14 why he should
not be Brreated and punished for con
Coroner Crawford did his duty ana
courageous republican official nerved the
terrifying court order on the Beared
sheriff at a late hour Thursday after
noon. The sheriff will answer.
Judge McDonald Advertised His
lin maculate Whiteness.
Judge McDonald in a speech at the
court boom Monday night, attempted
to justify bis course in shielding the
saloon people. He rambled on and on
for the better part of two hours, making
the same old talk which ran bin) 1000
votes behind his ticket in 1896. The
only difference in his harangue was that
he forgot to blubber.
The principal part of his spiel was de
voted to telling the 73 people present
what a great and good man McDonald
is and what an "honest" judge be has
made. To the assembled saloon men,
whom he had industriously drummed
out, lie pave a grain of comfort by an
nouncing that no anti-saloon league
could run his court, aud that in future
when arrests are made for Sunday open
ing that ii must be proven a house was
"opt-n for sale and profit."
The judge cited figures of court ex
penses to prove that be bad been cheaper
thau others, but, as in other matters
where he attempted to justify himself, he
told but part of the story. The court
expenses of a few years ago were largely
made by justice courts, which are now
practically put out of existence by legis
lative enactment. He read one letter to
prove a conspiracy on the part of cer
t am people, including former Prosecuting
Attorney Mathews, to catch him pro
tecting gamblers As with all other
thing*, he was extremely careful to not
tell the whole Btory. The newspapers
came in for a fair share of denunciation
for presuming to affront so wise and
just a judge.
Not a word was said about the Boyle
habeas corpus find perjury case, the
sheriffs arraignment of the judge, the
sentence of John Ryder, the McGutre
cattle stealing and several other inter
esting happenings, but the loan com
panies, bankers and "Sheeny merchants"
were viciously stabbed.

Everything in Readiness for the
Hits Opening on the 25th of
Thf Fair Association officers, with the
assistance of C. A. Ross, have been busy
the past week decorating the ware
houses, billboards, and roadside farms
with hai.drome lithograph advertising
of tbe fall meeting, which begins Tues
ii'iy, September 25, and ends September
21*. Many inquiries are being received
from the numerous side-show attrac
tions now iv Portland, Oregon, partici
pating in the carnival there, and it ie
presumed a number of them will drop
in and visit Coliax while the fair is in
progress and then proceed to Spokane
to exhibit during the fruit fair in Oc
tober. Among them is "Mrs. Murphy,"
the monkey aeronaut, who goes up 5000
feet in a balloon .uid then comes down
by the parachute route; also the "Fish
Man," who lives, eats and smokes en
tirely submerged in a glass tank filled
with water.
A contract haß been closed with Prof.
Richard Earlston of Portland, who will
give two balloon ascensions during the
fair. He is said to be very good.
Work on the buildings and track be
gins this week and a force of men will be
kept employed until after thi: fair.
The restaurant privileges have been
sold to the ladies of the Baptist church,
who will serve meals on the grounds dur
ing the entire fnir week.
All developments point to a most suc
cessful meeting this year. The people
who have enjoyed the county fair in
past years ore all coming, and they will
bring their friends and neighbors with
them. The greatest crowd in the history
of Whitman county fairs is almost cer
tain to be on the grounds. Every form
of entertainment heretofore provided,
with many new and [(leasing features,
will be before the people, while the ex
hibit* will certainly be the best ever

The holdup men have been operating
in Colfax the last few days. Thursday
night of last week Emory Hammond,
driver of Cairns' wagons and the Great
Northern express, was sandbagged on
Railroad street and relieved of #18.
Saturday night .John Stump, with $120
in his pocket, was persuaded by a friend
of a week's acquaintance, giving his
name as (ieo. Williams, to take a walk
after dark up the railroad. Near the
stockyards Stump was persuaded to
take a drink. Unconscious from the
kno -k-out drops, he was hit a side-head
blow which cut his ear in two, and then
robbed of $118.50. He was uot found
until the following morning aud in now
in a precarious condition, though ex
pected to live.
The barn of Joseph (iroom, eight
milles northwest of Coif ax, was burned
to the ground Monday of last week.
Playing children may have been the
cause, but it is not known how the blaze
originated. The loss was $300. Mr.
Groom had only §100 insurance. This
was on baj and grain. His loss would
have been much heavier, but ho had ail
his outfits of teams and harness at work
in the lields and saved them. The insur
ance was carried in the H. W. (7off
agencies, and everything has been satis
factorily adjusted.
The won! "Osteopathy," which was
coined by Dr, Still aud applied to his
science as a name, is un versally criti
cised as a misnomer by those who make
only a superficial investigation of the
subject, but deeper researches into the
new philosophy show the name to be
very appropriate. Oue of the great
fundamental principles of the science is
that when the human body is in perfect
mechanical order, when every tissue is
enabled to do its work without mechani
cal interference, health will result. The
bony framework is that part of the
body upon which order most depends.
The Osteopath uses the bones as fixed
points from which to explore for dis
order, and as levers to assist him in re
storing order to the body. In fact very
little Osteopathic work would be pos
sible without using the bones, and it is
the Osteopathic use of the bones in this
wurk, rather than the treatment of bone
troubles, that makes the won! "Oste
opathy" an appropriate name for this
With the exception of antiseptics and
antidotes for poisons, this new school of
practice totally discards medicines in
the treatment of diseases, and adopts in
their stead a system of intelligent man
ual operations by which the inherent
! recuperative forces of the body are con
j trolled aud directed to the restoration
\ of harmony and health. By this method,
: all mechanical obstructions to the circu
: lation of vital fluids are removed, and
nut tire is allowed to regain her equilib
-1 rium without the introduction of drugs
| or other agencies than the good, whole
| some food prescribed by the normal ap
! petite. The new school embraces in its
! curriculum all that is known of the hu
man body in health and disease. The
; principles of the new treatment can
neither be comprehended nor applied by
one who is not thoroughly acquainted
; with anatomy, physiology, pathology
j and symptomatology. In addition to
! these branches the Osteopath requires
! special training in the development of
I a roost delicate sense of touch and a
knowledge of special nerve centres uu
kuown to other schools. Osteopathy is
a complete system of treating diseases
and deformities without drugs or ap
pliances. It differs from other schools
of medicine principally in the remedial
agencies applied; and while using only
the hands to do its work, this system
also differs from massage and all other
forms of so-called "manual therapeutics' 1
in that no Osteopathic diagnosis or
treatment is possible without a most
exact aud practical knowledge of all the
partß and processes of the physiological
and pathological man. The special
nerve centres and principles by which
remedial effects are secured in this prac
tice were discovered by Dr. Still, and are
neither recognized nor understood by
any other school
