The article on fish and fisheries,
which we published Saturday, enu
merates a grea': deal more than most.
people calculate in the way of actual
business in connection with this
question. “'0 commend it to the
careful perusal of our readers. Port.
Townsend will do more to encourage
this industry when she gets fully
alive to its great» importance. Speed

the fishing industry. .
It has remained for the San
Francisco Chronicle to present the
masterly, par excellence, argument
for protection. That paper publish
ed a history of the whole question,
devoting one entire edition to it.
Tons of extra copies were printed
for circulationl and the demand has
been very great. The Chronicle has
publicly challenged any democratic
orator or newspaper in California to
debate the question—but thus far it
has not been accommodated.
A newspaper that has manliness
enough to be an aggressive. force for
the right is sure to have antagon
isms. One that is too cowardly to
express a definite opinion upon any
public question, and that is forever
straddling and catering to popular
favor, or to avoid antagonism. is sure
to count for but little. It. is always
the pusillanimous kind that sneers at
those who do amount to something.
Such gloating, however. plainly be
trays the jealousy gnawing at ex
ceedingly narrow minds.
Port Townsend needs just one
great facility in addition to her rail
road, as a factor in achieving speedy
municipal growth—a fine hotel;
This necessity is no great that we
cannot dispense with the hotel and
its advantages without seriously in—
juring our own interests. It ought
not to require months of argument
and agitation to demonstrate this
matter so plainly and forcibly as to
induce organized and efl‘eclive efi'ort
for a hotel such as is needed. There
should be immediate action.
Democrats are very anxious to get
control of the legislature. In view
of approaching statehood it is quite
important. A democratic majority
in the legislature after President
Harrison signs our statehood bill
would mean two democratic U. S.
senators—hence demierata are frantic
in their efl'orts to vary the legisla
tive districts. Republicans who want
the U. S. senate to continue republi~
can in complexion, and thus continue
the safeguard of our industries
against free trade, will vote solidly
for their legislative candidates.
The hanging of Goldensen, yes
terday for the murder of the inuo~
cent school girl, Mamie Kelly, was a
triumph of justice, which must make
every American’s heart rejoice. Low,
vicious criminals increase with every
‘ lax administration of the law. So
surely as Goldensen‘s neck had been
‘ spared a dozen more school girls had
been murdered. Our law is too slow.
We believe that it is better for a
criminal to have every chance of jus
tice. but not a perversion of justice
in the way of leniency, for that he—
gets crime. The morbid sympathy
which so many goody-goody people
show to great Criminals is all wrong.
It makes a kick] of hero of the cum
inal which is very desirable on the
part of some abandoned characters.
The protection of the innocent, not
the vicious, is the design of the law. i

General Harrison's letter of accept
ance is a. document of notable strength
and deafness. Ho discusses every
public question of importance in a
straight forward and practical man
ner which is calctlalod to inspire the
deepest confidence in his statesman
ehip and a broad comprehension of
the great subjects now at issue before
the country. It is eminently in ac
cord with the spirit 0! Republican
ism and will attract the consideration
of candid voters of all classes. In
comparison with the letter which Mr.

ers, Greneml Harrison’s is as much an
pcrior as the utterances of a trained
statesman are above those of an obs

the most superficial phases of any pub‘

Extravagant Claims‘
'l'hc Clivhnlis Nugget, always ready
to land Deli-gutt- Voorhei‘s with sick
ening,ovonlrawn, fillsome slohber,
is out in :1 long article purporting to
given resume of that gentleman‘s
work in congress. It has summed
up everything that anybody or all
put together have accomplished for
Washington Territory during the
past four years, and tries to create
the impression that Voorliees has
done it all—4lnd this year, too. It
even goes back and tries to claim
credit for work done by Hon. T. H.
Brents before Voorhees was elected.
Such outrageously extravagant claims
can assist our Delegate to re-elec
tion only with those who are too ig~
norant or too careless to read the
truth. Still, the long drawn out
gush is published with apparent
seriousness, under flaming headlines
claiming that “Thomas H. Bronte
never did, and John B. Allen or any
other republican never can do as
much.” '
No sensible person objects to giv
ing Mr. Voorhees credit for all thatl
he is untitled to~but when it comes 1
to dignifying him with silly claims:
that he has done more than anyonej
: has done, or can do, and actually ‘
lying outright to support the claim.:
the average citizen is nauseated.l
Still, this kind of blatant. cheap johnl
politics goes—and newspapers that
are “thick and thin" party workers
in the democratic ranks are sending
it on its rounds-taking, or profess—
ing to take, down at one gulp the
whole claim as gospel truth.
In the first place, while Mr. Voor—
hees has been in congress the Ore~
gen senators have done more for
Washington Territory than he has—
yet all their work is claimed in be
half of the ambitious young egotist
who seeks political homage and con—
tinued success. We cite a few in
smnces: The bill to grant Point
Defiance reservation to Tacoma for a
public park is Senator Dolph’s meas
ure. The additional appropriation
for the Port Townsend custom house
was secured were by Senator Mit
chell than any one else-although
the spr cial lobbyist sent on from
this city did some good work for it.
The act to validate our legislative
work and provide for the expenses of
holding the next legislature was a
failure, simply because Mr. Voorhees
did not stay at his post of duty in
Washington and attend to business.
It was emasculatenl in the senate by
having its most important part strick
en out. when Mr. Voorhees could
have secured a remedy for the whole
matter in a proviso of a dozen words
had he been there; but he had come
west to make sure of getting that
nomination which he said he didn‘t
I want. The bill making Seattle and
' Tacoma ports of delivery and en
larging their customs privileges was
one of Senator Dolph’s measures,
and to him belongs mainly the cred»
it of its success; the same applies tol
the Port Angeles psrt of delivery 1
bill now pending. The bill for the‘
admission of Washington Territory,
favorably reported in the senate. is
in no sense Mr. Voorhees? measure.
It is almost identical with admission
‘ bills twice passed by the senate, but
‘ which died in the hands of the House
committee on Territories of which
Mr. Voorhees is a member. Either
our Delegate did not have influence
enough with his own committee to
secure a report on any one of these
statehood bills, or else he didn't
want them reported. Still, with the
gall of a cast iron mule he and his
friends claim credit for what the Or--
egon senators have done for us—and
d 1 mocratic papers have the brazen
efi'rontery to flaunt these claims in
the faces of sensible people. The
enabling act for Washington, Dako
ta, Montana and New Mexico was
Congressman Springer‘s bill. Mr 3
Voorhves had uutlxiug whatever to
do with it. The river and harbor
bill, in so far as it provides for sun
veys and estimates for improvement
of the upper Columbia river. is the
x‘usult of Dvlph and Mitchell's labors,
yet it also is paraded among Year
[l99s’ assets. A more impudent at
tempt to strut in borrowed feathers
we never witnessed.
The foregoing are but a few sam
ples. We might. prolong the list,
but cite those items to indicate the
character of the blnsfier campaign
just npuncd. Mr. Vunrh(;os has been
a fairly avtiv: dob-gulp, but “mm are
wwml geutfemen in tlm Territory
who could have done more.
Party Positions.
The republican territorial platform,
which we publish this morning, is
remarkable for what it omits as well
as for its positive declarations. 0n
the national issue, the protective tar
itl' question, it is clear and ringing in l
its utterances. In so far as the na~
tional issue affects the leading pro
ducts of this Territory the platform
is particularly emphatic. If it fails
to meet with the hearty endorsement
of the public. then the world may as
Well conclude that our people are in
;difi‘erent to their industrial welfare.
lOn the queetion of statehoed the ad
ministration is arraigned in unmis
takable terms. Mr. Voorheee was
twice sea), to congress in the belief
that his distinguished father would
aid our aepirtaions, and in the vain
hope that he. being in accord with
the democratic majority in the lower
House of Congress. would he better
able to forward our admission bill
than a republican delegate would.
But all this alluring delusion Las
been dissipated like the mists of a
summer morning —and the toiling
masses of the Territory, evor anxious
for emancipation from their condi
tiou of aorl'dom, ever patient under
delay and injustice. have been awak
ened to a realization that they were
[victims of shameless deception.
Tho loud blustur and vehement
promises of young Voorheos. made
for the purpose of gaining elections
to congress, lun‘e been simmered
down to actual results, and have
proven by analysis to lie niuo parts
wini and the rest immuculuted os
senco of gull. We do not charge
that when Mr. Voarbnos first made
these promises he did so without ox
pectution of being able to fulfill
them. His ogotialn probably led him
to expect grand things. But the at
titudo of the national democratic
party towards \Vusbington Territory
on the statehood question has been
simply an insurmountable barrier to
our advancement—and it is just as
apparent today as it was four years
ago that we will be powerless to ae~
cure a state government until the
republican party gets able to give it
to us. Still. voters were duped into
supporting Chan. 8. Voorhees on this
issue. That he will be able to do~
caive them upon it a third time seems
hugely credible. , ,
The republican platform has ig-‘
nored side issues completely—issues
upon which the party itself is locally
divided. We believe such a course
to be a wise one. The party is going
in for an old time victory. Republh
oanism, pure and simple, is the first,
great. overshadowxng consideration.
Side issues, that distract and divide
are left for future solution.
The Work of the Convention.
For the past few weeks it has been
apparent to everyone well acquainted
with the territorial situation that
Hon. John B. Allen was the choice
of the republicans by an overwhel
ming majority, and that the proper
thing for the territorial convention
of that party to do would be to nom~
inato Mr. Allen. His popularity
within the party became more and
more apparent when the convention
delegates met at Elleneburg. He
was the first choice of 157 delegates,
and the second choice of abontso
more. Ol course he was triumphant
ly nominated on the first ballot.
"Had there been another ballot taken
he would have received over 200
votes in the convention, out of 243.
The best of feeling prevailed. and
other candidates whose names are
considered were treated with such
courtesy and good feeling that they
were all well pleased.
After the nomination had been
made there was a manifest and most
unanimous feeling that. the very best
possible thing had been done. At
the evening session, after the work
of the convention had been comple
ted, Mr. Allen appeared in the hall,
and loud calls were echoed and re
echoed for him until he appeared on
the stage, when he was tendered a
genuine ovation, and stood bowing
his thanks for several minutes be~
‘ fore order could be restored. Mr.
lAllon is a tall, spare manl with a
‘ youthful, smooth face, an intellectual
‘ forehead. and the general appear
ance of a dignified, cultured gentle
man. His manner of speaking is
graceful and scholarly. full of mag—
netic tire, poetic and flowery, replete
with all the ornate graces of the suc- 1
cessful speaker. To say that the‘
vast audience in the convention hall ‘
was captivated by the ringing speech
but faintly expresses the fact. Its
lending thoughts were grandly in
spiring, taking within their compre
hensive scope enough of the history
of the republican party to arouse the
pride of everyone present. At its
close the enthusiastic cheering that
followed prevented either business or
speaking for several minutes. Oth
ers were called out, including Hon.
Geo. Turner, Col. J. C. Haincs and
J no. L. Wilson. Angular love feast
guessed. Everybody went home set
isfied and confident of victory in No—
Mr. Allen will open his campaign
at Colfax on Monday next. His plan
will be to conduct an aggressive con
test in his own behalf, treating his
opponent with polite indifference.
No one doubts that John B. Allen
will make a splendid impression up
on the people. His ability as a
speaker. his purity of personal char
acter. sincerity of purpose and thor~
oughly gentleinanly qualities can but
commend him to the public; while
his long residence in the territory,
familiarity with its public afl'airs, and
hisconsiatent. clean record on public
issues render him especially accept
able. He has hosts of ersonal
jfriends. also, who will greatly assist
; Hl].

Spokane Falls, Sept. 17.-—The Big

is rapidly approaching Medical lake.
It is graded to the King farm, two
and one—half miles west of the lake,
and this distance will be com leted
this week. Track laying will, then
commence at once, and trains will be
running to the lake by the Ist of
October. The Northern Pacific ar~

of the lake, the two roads being only
about fifty yards apart. The North~
am Pacific is south of the Seattle
line until the lake is reached. when
the roads cross and run west on par~
allel lines. not more than a mile apart
as far as Davenport, 25 miles west of
the lake. Both roads are trying to
reach that point first, and the Seattle
road. while it is waiting for its spur
with the Northern Pacific to be com

Every etl'ort is being made by this
road to reach Medical lake as soon as
its competitor, and large forces of
men are employed on both roads.

iwhersby the Manitoba Central rail—
lway was to have asole lease of the
Rind River Valley railroad. The conv
tract was given to a trustee. Dr. Mc-
Arthur, of Winni eg, representing
the corporation. The contract speci~
tied that Manitoba Central was to
have a prior claim over all other cor

tract be disallowed and disallowance
practically or tacitly annulled by
any future act of the dominion gov~
ernment, the Manitoba Central’s
rights were to be recognized in pri

considered valid. Under the terms
of the agreement the Manitoba Cen-

claim and will institute proceedings
at once. It was learned to—day at

The N P. Reiuces the Fish Rate:
'l‘uesdav afternoon Captain 80103
mun Jacobs received a telegram from
the managers of the freight depart~
meat of the Northern Pacific rail
road, stating that they would ship I
his nine craloads of fish in boxes or
barrels at the old rate of $1.25 per
lot) pounds. Captain Jacobs had no
idea of shipping his fish in boxes or
barrels. but in bulk, and he conclud~
ed to place them in refrigerator care
in bnl and take the chances. as he
does not want to remain idle. In the
. meantime he will correspond with the
l Canadian Pacific people and see what
rates he can get there. Unless the
Northern Pacific people conclude to
make rates which t e fishermen con
.sider fair and eqluitable. the fish of
lPuaet Sound wil probably be shi -

From their arrival on' this planet to

people of weak constitutions and angu

retreats, afraid of heat, afraid of cold,
constantly afraid that the shadow or the

the forfeit which he demands from all,
sooner or later. No finer medicinal as

‘teeble exists than that aflhrded by Heat
teter’s Btomaoh Bitters. Used with per
sistence-not with spurts and spasms——
this genial and proteulonally commend

strength into a puny system. and round
