The press with Americans Is a mighty and influential engine. It wields a power unequaled, and consequently incurs a responsibility that can neither be lightly assumed or shaken off. For Its own dig nity and reputation such newspapers as prostitute Its use to ibase Jr selfish ends should be put down and discountenanced, both by the reading public and the great mass of publishers who have higher motives In view, and who appreciate the importance of their high, and thoroughly useful and commendable position In hu man affairs. The extreme liberty accorded the periodical press of the United States is always remarked by writers of other countries wiien depleting American In stitutions end customs from their own standpoint, and Is frequently assailed with no little violence by such as do r.ot properly understand Its -workings and methods. In a democracy liko ourj, where liberty of speech and action, so long as they do not conflict with the rights of others, are as free as the air wo breathe. A censorship of the press would be Impos sible, and In Hat contradiction to the very principles on w'hlch the government Is founded. To attempt any abridgement of this liberty would be an experiment fraught with danger, that could not but result disastrously. "The Newspaper Maker," following this line of thought, recently said: "In certain foreign countries every In. dividual agont of the government may violate the laws with Impunity, since the constitution does not give to those who are Injured a right to complain before the courts of Justice. In such cases, the liberty of the press Is the only guaran tee of the liberty and assurance that the citizens possess; and while this Is not so absolutely true under our own consti tution since we have In America laws for the punishment of offenders In pub lic as well us private life; still, no one can doubt that the apprehension ot censure through the columns of the press restrains with Incalculable power many a many a man enjoying the confidence ot the people, and elevated by them to some position or ofllco of trust and distinction, who, were this restraint to ibo removed, wou.d, by pursuing a different course, de servedly merit that public comiicmnutlon which It would be Impossible to Inflict on him. The sovereignity of the people and the liberty of the press may lie re garded as correlative, us the censorship of the press and universal suffrage are two things irreconclllub'.y opposed, ana cannot long be retained among the same people. That our system Is free from fau.ts, many and grievous, we would not undertake to alflrm. 11 Is subject to tubuses, and so Is every other form, no matter whait may Ibe Its restrictions, or however carefully It may be guarded, and yet smlts for libel are ratm-r the excep tion than the rule. True, there Is with us a boundary beyond which file press cannot step without violating the law, which should be familiar to every publisher and editor as- Is his own day of publication and the topics of general discussion." Of the abuses which the luw does not undertake to regulate, and which It v ould pei'hU'ps bo Impolitic for legislators to Interfere with, Instances aire numerous and well known to a'1. Notable among them might be mentioned the tendency, bo prevalent at the present day, to cater to the lower tastes and ideas of the peo ple. In endeavoring to produce that which Is most sensational and pleasing to a morbid appetite or temporary eras, no matter what may be the result, rather than the dltsimluution of that only which la really worth knowing, or the effect ot which is to elevate the mind and per manently Improve the condition of man kind. The Chicago Tribune, one of the strong est advocates for the Nicaragua Cunal, In the country, In a recent editorial, sr-ys: There is nothing surprising In Eiir land's visible agitation over the prospect that the United States will obtain and retain control of the Nlcarngui Canal. American control means not only that the canal may 'be closed to Hrltlfch war ships If It should be to our Interest to close It, but It means also United States domination of the Central American re publics and United States monopoly of Central American trade. The first dan ger Is remote and unimportant. The second la near and of the greatest Im portance, for It Is) very Improbable that we shall ever think It necessary to im pede )reat Britain's military nitrations, but the commercial battle for Rsln in the Isthmian countries Is present and perpet ual. The vehemence with which the St. James Gazette harks back to the Clay-tun-llufwer treaty and Insists that It must not bo violated by the United States, and the facility with which tt demonstrates that our control of the cunal would be a violation of the treatv, ould awaken to us the importance ot sm.1i ring and establishing our grlv upon the ennal company's llnances. England, as the Gazette says, would Jump at chance to furnls'j the money to com plete the enterprise if by so doing It could obtain control nf It. Shall we al low the company to give England that cbance? The slow progress of the Nicaragua Cona! lilU toward the statute book shows v"T : "T ""."' t AncrUi'a ivliiion ot the matter's importance. The United States apparently does not see bow enor mous and profitable an advantage It will have if it Is In watchful Charge of the Isthmus of Panama. But England dees, and if we do not look sharp It will avail Itself of our Indifference and procrasti nation and take possession of the var. t.vge ground we might naive occupied to our enrichment and to the effectual safe guarding of our national interests. The Clayton-Bulwer treaty will not stand In our way. If It conflicts with the Monroe doctrine, as the Gazette claims, It Is null and void. . . , STOP THE FALL FISHING. We understand that It Is still the In tention of several of the Columbia River cannerymen to pack fall Ha'.mon this year. Although all of them, vehemently declare that the putting up of fall fih Is gradually ruining the business, they keep right along In a course they them selves denounce, and continue to drag down the name "Columbia River" to the 'level of Alaska or California! trairti goods, Several weeks ago the Astorian directed a series of articles against this practice, and the Eastern trade Journals as well as several Influential dally papers have not been slow to take up the subject and comment favorably an our position. It Is uselese for the packers to close their eyes to the fact that there is everywhere an overwhelming sentiment against the fall fish that Is put up on this river. The great bulk of such a pack, as we have before declared, and will continue to declare, is absolutely unfit for human food, and It is an outrage and a positive menace to the public safety that such work should be continued. Should the cannerymen persist In fall packing this year, the Astorian will by every means In its power disseminate the facts afbout the quality of the goods so put on the market, and will not cease fighting until It has finally' put a stop to such stupid and short sighted policy.' Probably Coroner Pohl Is not nwure that an Inquest is a public Investigation and not a star chamber affair from which the public can be excluded. It Is of course to be regretted that the coroner's office Is so email that the conduct of business Is seriously Interfered .with by tho at tendance of the public, but perhaps the county court room could be used in spe cial cases. At any rate the nulhlie hnur. the right to attend such inquests. ti TO.
