The Murderous Impulse. King Alfonso is reported to have said, when congratulated on his escape, "Yes, but it will come ag.iin." The risk is always there. And this boy has really little more to do with the actual govern ment of Spokain than the device on his coach. He is sentenced to death—and, what is worse, the long dread of death—through no fault of his own, whether of commission or omis sion. Even his most virulent enemy admits that he is of great per sonal amiability, anxious to do everything in his power for the peo ple nominally his subjects. When President Garfield was assassinated, General Grant exclaim ed. "For my part, I am in favor of having the civilized nations put down these assassins with a hard hand." It was the natural expression of a blunt and simple nature, and we hear it echoed every time there is an anarchistic outrage. Andrew D. White would have an international bureau of police to run down bomb throwers. Rut, anarchism being in defiance of all reason, it is impossible to cure or crush it by reasonable method*, H is an error to assume that these assassins strike for principle's sake. Their murderous impulse sp q}3uaJls 'ssounEo.w tnojj s3uu of mind. The assassin loves a shining mark, and it is equally true that he loves a shining moment. In the case of the anarchists, theatricalism is carried to the point of a disease. No anarchist kills, or seeks to kill, without care ful regard for the dramatic and theatrical value of the background. It does no good to prove to them that they are stupid as well as inhuman; that organized government must go on; and that, as Presi dent Rooseveit said in his first message, men will always be found to step forward and take the place of the murdered rulers. Anarchists care nothing for that or any other argument, since their chief aim is to create terror and prc:luce an immense sensation. Local Brevities S.

Dear Percy: Your letter telling of steps taken to overcome the prejudice aroused by that man Roosevelt pleases me greatly. In fact, nothing you have ever done has been so gratifying. Sometimes, when I watch you blowing your brains out with those foul smelling Turkish cigarets, or when you're out in a masquerade ball costume so you can illustrate an abandoned cow pasture that's been spoiled by bunkers, I feel that you are the result of a gypsy curse placed on me. Hut occasionally, when left to your own resources, you do something that leads me to believe you have human Intelli gence. Your action reminds me of Char ley Hobbles, a friend of early days dead now, poor fellow. He was a bright one, and if he had lived he'd have made old Phil Armour look like a village butcher. Once he was trying to land a certain job and he didn't want the people who controlled it to know he was after it. He was trying to make the Job come to him, and that's a different operation, but Charley performed it successfully. "I gee that job has come to you," said one of his friends, after it bad been offered to him. "Yes," said Charley, "it has come my way." "What are you going to do?" "Well," Charley' answered, "un der the conditions, I think I may say I am going to meet the situa tion." That's the way the expression "meet the situation" started. You have met the situation nob ly, my son. Your advertisement inviting the public to call and in spect our plant rang every bell in the gallery. Of course after all that's been printed of the horrors of the place, nobody will accept the invitation, but the advertisement made it look as though we wpre afraid of nothing and that we are confident a visit to the place will be our vindication. Your state ment that you hoped the govern ment would pass a strict inspec tion bill was another good move. I hope you said you did not wish a bill that would place the cost of in spection on the packer, explaining profits were so low we could not bear any additional expense, and impressing everybody with the fact THE SPOKANE PRESS. The result in the race for county auditor between F. P. Greene and J. H. Yates is somewhat in doubt. Curbstone forecasters predict that Mr. Greene will get the nomina tion.

Cooke of Spokane was arrested and placed in a cell at the Lewiston (Idaho) Jail yes terday on a charge of conspiracy with Peter Haussler against Albert Falter to convict him of murdering an old man named Faller, who had raised Albert and intended to make him his heir. The arrest of Cooke followed the preliminary hearing of Faller at Lewiston yesterday when letters were Introduced along with the testimony of Mrs. Cooke that she had hid in the Butte, Mont., Studio, conducted by Cooke and Haussler, and heard them conspire to convict Faller of the murder of his adopted parent unless he agreed to pay a note for $500 which he had signed while drinking. KLINE FAVORS BRYAN CLEVELAND, June 15.—Virgil P. Kline, personal attorney to Rockefeller, and prominent among the Standard Oil counsel, today de clared himself in favor of Bryan.

All are welcome. that the packers must bear the ex pense, as they can neither reduce prices paid for the live stock nor raise the prices of the finished pro duct. That will make the farmer and stock raiser think we are pro tecting him, and at the same time make the consumer think we are looking after them. I spoke in the beginning of my letter about Turkish cigarets. Why shouldn't we smoke them? Here for years we've been selling pig bristles and cattle hair for a few cents a pound when we might just as well have worked that stuff up into Turkish cigarets at one cent apiece. Think of the number of cigarets a pound of hair would make. They might be lacking In flavor, but I think they would smell as good as the genuine article. If they didn't smell bad enough wo could hire a lot of Turks to roll them and then they would be all right. I sail for home tomorrow. I feel confident, everything is coining out all right, but I want to bo on the ground. We will find our Aldrich 10 see that we get a square deal, but I prefer to be within easy reach of Washington. There are three or four fellows there who owe me a little messenger work, and I want to be where I can put my finger on the bu/.zer. Your affectionate father, JOHN BEEFHAM.
