The youthful editor of the
Daily Pioneer is willing to
let the amusing and childish
battle of words which lias been
going on between this paper and
the Bemidji |Sentinel com:' to an
end. Remarks of his were attri
buted" in yesterday's Santinel to
anold]and experienced editor of
well-known and undoubted abil
ity. To a boy who his been a
member of the*|prof ession less
than two years this is decidedly
complimentary, to say the least.
It wipes out any slurs which may
have been made in the p.ist. By
their own statements the editor
of the Sentinel and |hts attorney
assistant admit that the Daily
Pioneer man has scored the most
points, but they dislike to admit
that he Ins done this without
assistance. As the Daily Pioneer
did not find it necessary to
descend to mud-slinging the vic
tory is all the more complete.
The Sentinel] editor attempted,
with the assistance of an ass, to
(Oraw)ford the waters of ridicule
into which his comical^attemptt.)
injure the Daily Pioneer had
thrown him butjtho] poor ass
sank below the waters, being of
insufficient strength to carry the
double burden to shore, and the
Sentinel man is left floundering

The authorities at Evansville,
Ind., have shown injthe presence
of public tumult a clear and level
headed conception of duty and a
brave determination to uphold
the law against the mob. When
the militia fired upon the rioters
six were killed Jand fifteen
wounded. As usual, some of the
victims were innocent spectators,
but their blood is upon the heads
of the persons responsible for
the riot. The tragedy might be
expected to effect a sobering
effect upon the community and
bring the three days' rioting and
the threats of race war to a close.
If it does not, the governor of
Indiana should send additional
force to the spot. Indiana can
not afford to encourage feudists
and compete for thej(bad reputa
tion of I the mountain districts of
a retiring 'city

It seems to be most common in the

passing through a sort of luminous
fog in which sea and sky seem to join
and all sense of distance is lost. The
phenomenon is probably due to some
form of phosphorescence.
