GOCrCI TOO FAB.
Much injury has been done the
cause of labor by misguided men who
go too far In the matter of Intem
perate speech and action. At Spo
kane the police have just had diffi
culty holding down some street meet
ings and a wall of protest has been
sent up by those who imagine they
have been abused.
In discussing this subject the
Spokesman-Review had the following
very sensible editorial yesterday:
"When the facts are considered, the
contention of the Industrial Workers
of the World, that they are fighting
for 'the right of free speech,' Is seen
to be fallacious and wholly unfounded.
These misguided and contentious
men are demanding privileges outside
the law that are not accorded to oth
er citizens. They argue that they
have the right to obstruct business
streets and sidewalks to. any extent
that may suit their whim or purpose
to hold street meetings and har
angue bystanders, regardless of the in
convenience that may be suffered by
the general public.
"In pursuit of an Imaginary' right
they are eager to Impose an obvious
wrong upon the people of this ciy,
who want to use the streets for the
clear purpose for which they are pro
dded the movement of traffic and
the free and unobstructed passage of
citizens bent on pleasure or business.
"The ordinance which these men are
defying Is a reasonable, necessary,
safeguarding of public convenience
and public rights. It prohibits the
holding of public meeting on any of
the streets, sidewalks or alleys within
the fire limits. These men have an
undisputed right, possessed by all oth
ers, to hold street meetings outside
the fire limits, or within the fire limits
provided they secure halls or go upon
vacant lots or blocks. But they find
that the public does not want to hear
them to the extent of going to meet
ings held under conditions that gov
ern meetings held by other citizens
and organizations, and in their eager
desire to force their doctrines upon the
citizens of Spokane, they are defying
the law by invading the business dis
trict and shoutln.. out their opinions
in the expectation that their utterances
will thus be forced upon unwilling
"This Is un-American, unfair and In
tolerant to the clear rights of others,
and to contend that this contumacious
conduct is Justified in the name of
fr speecTi, Is preposterous."
A PROPER MOVE.
Most assuredly the prohibition law
should be enforced. Whether It Is a
good law or an Impractical one makes
no difference as far as Its enforcement
Is concerned. While It is the law It Is
the duty of all to obey It and to as
sist In its enforcement. Upon this
point It should be needless to dwell.
The East Oregonian has always stood
for the enforcement of the law and
does so now.
However, the proper enforcement of
the prohibition law Is not as easy as
the prohibltionlste profess to believe.
The officers alone have not been re
sponsible for the lax enforcement of
the law In this county. The chief fault
H with the public Itself. People don't
assist In enforcing the prohibition law
IthottCh they gladly aid in catching
burglars, horse thieve .ind most other
elates of lawbreaker.
Furthermore it Is a waste of breath
when estimable men from Milton.
Athena. Pilot Rock and other points
come here and tell m the law has not
been flagrantly vlolited in this city.
Prohibition lias been a farce In Pen-
jdleton and everybody knows it. It is
I hypocrisy to deny the faci.
But now that r n effort is to be made
to enforce the la.v more rigidly let all

It U not surprising that Francis J.
Heney was defeated for district attor
ney in San Francisco. The odds were
all against him. Heney was engaged
in prosecuting graft cases that Involv
ed men having interests ramifying all
parts of the city. So the big business
interests were against him.
Then the labor union people were
antagonistic to Heney because he had
pros'vuted Ruf. Schmitz and others
of tho old labor union administration.
It is understood the two elements unit
ed against Heney, the republicans sup
porting the labor union mayoralty
candidate in return for the union la
bor vote for Fickert. The combination
was successful. But the result looks
had for San Francisco. The city is
placed in the light of conniving at
bribery and grafting.

"I'm very sorry to trouble you,
madam." said the bank teller polite
ly, "but you'll have to be Identified "
He pushed the cheek across the mar
ble slab toward her as he spoke.
"Identified'.'" repeated the lady;
"what does that mean? Isn't the
check good?" The bank man did not
sm.le, for this was the thirty-seventh
lady who had asked this question
that day. "I have no doubt it ia," he
said, "but I don't know you. Do you
know anybody in the bank?" "JV'hy,
I'm Mrs. Weatherly!" exclaimed the
lady. "Didn't you see my nai on
the check? See here it is." The
teller shook his head wearily. "You
must be identified," he insisted; "you
must bring somebody who knows
you." The lady drew herself up.
"That check," she said with dignity,
"was given me by my husband.
There's his name on it. Do you know
him?" "I do," said the teller, "but
I don't know you." "Then," said the
lady, "I'll show you who I am. My
husband is a tall man with reddish
hair. His face is smooth shaven. He
has a mole on one cheek and looks
something like a gorilla, some people
say, but I don't think bo. When he
talks he twists his mouth to one side
and one of his front teeth is missing.
He wears a No. 15 collar, a No. 6
shoe, and won't keep his coat but
toned. He's the hardest man to get
money out of you ever saw It took
me three days to get this check." The
banker waved his hand. "I guess It's
all right," he said; "put your name

the face." Galveston News.
