The wonder of the heavens—Halley's
comet—that has filled the mind of the
world for many months and has been
the theme of more discussion than any
event of a terrestial nature that hus oc
curred ID the life time of most of us, ap
peared in its glory at the time of the
eelipne of the moon Monday night be
tween U and 10 o'clock. The eclipse
came on schedule time, lasted just one
hour as per advance agent announce
ment, and the comet, with itstai! flaring
in the heavens, acted precisely as the
Bavants of the world said it wouid act,
by making a spectacular display to an
audience of millions of people. For be it
known it is not reasonable to suppose
that the Paloueecountry and the Inland
Empire enjoyed a monopoly of this won
der in the heavens, which last appeared
in 1835 and will appear again in 75 or
76 yt'tirn from date, probably as great a
curioeitj to people who inhabit this mun
dane Hphere then as it is to us now.
Whether the aeroplane will then be per
fected so that people can sail through
space to the comet or flirt with other
heavenly bodies we are loth to express
an opinion—perhapß not. The tail of
the comet was a delusion to people here
abouts until Monday night, at the time
of the moon's eclipse, when it extended
at least 40 degrees from the head in a
flare of light.
Another thing connected with the com
ing of Hallej's comet, it will cause in
creased study of the heavenly bodies,
making ol astronomy what it should be,
a more familiar subject to all peoples of
the earth. It is a deep study, a life loi.tr
study to master, but those who aspire
to a liberal education should have a gen
ernl knowledge of the heuveuly bodies,
know something ol their coming and go
ing, and be able to point out the nightly
visitors as they twinkle in purest ray se
rene above us. All cannot become ea
rants, bet every man aud woman can
easily obtain a knowledge of the upper
deep Oi it wi'! surely prove a source of
<it satisfaction if not of material
profit. We therefore take off our hat to
Hailey'fl comet and bid the heavenly
messenger God-speed on the journey
firoun i Neptune and back to the gaze of
Mother Bartb, albeit we shall not bt
here to Bee it when it comes ag-tin, know
ing that the \i*itor ban dose us no barm
in this year of our Lord 1910, but has
caused us to stop for a brief period and
look af the best, the purest, the greatest
All hail. Bailey's comet 1
The Poindexteritet held a banquet in
Seattle the other Dtght. Prom a list of
iiHiiifs published who were prew^nt it was
sutrgeHM\ f of h jar of niixpd pickles.
One Griffith, who had aaptratioM to le
mayor of Seattle Ht the last election,
was tons* master. Griffith was h candi
date in the republican primaries, and
becauHe a majority of the voters at the
primaries wanted some one else for
mayor he flew the track at the election
and supported the democratic candidate
Of course he is an insurgent. Unless he
can rule and dictate everything is wrong.
We also noticed the name of Thomas
Winsor. To old timers Wineor will be
remembered as the leader of the populist
party during the crazy times of the
nineties. He wanted to be United States
senator then, and will take anything in
eight now. He is now an insurgent, a
follower of the democratic congressman
from this district.
The Tacoma News saye that John H.
Williams of that city is writing what
will be the first complete book on Mount
Hainier, so far as the history of the
geology, geography, flora and fauna of
the great pile are known. It will be the
most elaborately illustrated book ever
written of an American mountain. The
title will be, "A Mountain That Was
God." Mr. Williams his made a thorough
study of the mountain aud its history
and his book will be read with excep
Several of the Inland Empire papers
that were inclined to fait in line and fol
low the lead of Poindexter in the insur
gency business are getting their eyes
open in regard to the way hie campaign
ie managed. The Oakesdaie Tribune re
marks: "If Congressman Poindexter
does not call a halt on his fool press
agent he will find his senatorial fences
looking like they had come in close con
tact with a Kansas cyclone upon his re
turn from Washington." The Maiden
Register man adds this to the sum total:
"While we admire Miles Poindexter, we
cannot help thinking that his campaign
is in mighty poor hands At any rate
the press that comes to our table does
not teem to take very favorably to him
or his campaign manager. It begins to
look very much like Burke or Wilson."
Senator Stepheuson of Wisconsin, who
is HT years of Hire, saw Halley's comet
in L 835, when a lad six years old, and,
of course, saw it Hgiin this year. Halley
wan 85 when he made his wonderful state
merit that the comet appeared every 75
or 7G years, its appearance being noted
twice—lS.'lfi and 1910—since his death,
proving that he knew whereof he epoke
Halley's claim to fame rests on what he
did after his 85th year. This is a lesson
for the mature in yeare to stand up and
The Morning Olympian thinks that
when a supreme court upsets a murder
conviction because of the misuse of one
word in '$."> pages of instructions to a
jury, as the Ohio supreme court did, the
courts must not complain if the people
lose confidence in them.
S. C. Armstrong ha* resigned as state
grain inspector and Richard J. Stephens
of Spokane, so it is stated, ia elated for
the position. The appointment is to be
made by the state railroad commission.
Old Dope Revamped.
The Spokane Spokesman takes the
staud that the so-called progressive re
publican party is not a party distinct
from the republican party. It is just as
much a separate and distinct party as
was the silver republican party, and the
same kind of disgruntled minority in the
republican party is now trying to bring
defeat to that party in this state as was
accomplished a few years ago by an alli
ance of the silver men with the demo
crats. The memory of the voter must
indeed be treacherous if he has forgotten
the fierce denunciation of the republican
party emanating from George Turner,
W. C. Jones and other silver republican
apostates, vigorously backed by the
Spokane Spokesman. The speeches of
the insurgents and the editorial of the
press sound and read like the old silver
republican dope revamped. The pro
gressives may bring temporary defeat to
the republican party, but the grand old
party cannot be wrecked by a rule or
ruin minority, and in another two years
the misnamed progressives will be ab
sorbed by the democratic party, where
they belong, and, as after the silver
eruption, the republican party will be
stronger than ever.—Oroville Gazette.
Laughing at Poindexter.
The city of Washington is laughing at
Congressman I'oindexter. He went over
into Ohio with drums beating and flags
flying to defeat Congressman Taylor's
renomination. Poindexter was shouting
for an "insurgent." Taylor was renom
mated by a considerably larger majority
than hi* best friends had hoped for. —

How a New Hampshire Lad Resented
Epithet of "Coward."'
A Washington newspaper man, one
of the few survivors of tlie Fifty-ninth
Massachusetts regiment, recently told
"A young Now Hampshire lad of
sixteen, Stunner Elliott, was a mem
ber of Company I, my company. In
some way a companion had been mov
ed i" call him a coward at Spottsyl
vania. The. epithet was undeserved,
for Elliott was a brave buy. He
thrashed the man who called him a
coward, but the insult rankled. Ou
the march to North Anna river he
brooded over it. We led the corps
across the river and advanced ou the
enemy. A rattling musketry fire was
dotting the ground with our dead and
"Presently young Elliott sprang
ahead of the advancing line, and as
he waved his musket over his bead
he shouted out in broad New England
" 'Serjeant Mertin, am I a coward?'
"The enemy opened a masked bat
tery full on our front and under a
thousand yards from their line. The
gabs were loaded to the muzzles with
grape and canister, and as the sward
we were tripping over was perfectly
level great yaps were made in our
ranks. Nevertheless we rushed on,
cheering, Suinner well in the lead.
Presently he went down, full length,
and as we swept over him the gallant
lad was still faintly shouting:
" 'Sergeant Mertin, a-m I a c-o-w
"His kneecap had been broken with
a grapeshot, and when subsequently
removed to the field hospital our first
sergeant, John 11. Mertin, managed to
visit him. As the poor boy, laid out
on the rude operating table, grasped
the sergeant's hand he faintly mut
tered. 'S-e-r-g-e-a-n-t M-e-r-t-i-u, am 1 a
"The sergeant pressed his hand and
replied with tears in his eyes, 'No,
Sumner, my lad; New Hampshire nev
