YES, WHY JiOTI
There Is no desire to argue wfch the
Judgea, but really with tboste high of
ficials elected by the people it would
seem that there would be nothing in
being subject to recall by their elec
tors In case of good cause. The Ore
gtonlan, after thinking the whole mat
ter over, has the following to say on
the subject which seems to apply ex-
It has been widely remarked that

Congress made no attempt ta pass 1
the bill over the presidents veto a
significant commentary, on Its merits
but remodeled the measure so as to
meet his objections. ,
But here in Oregon, the native lair
of the recall. Judicial, legislative and
executive, It is not easy to under
stand or to appreciate the alarm of
the president over the recall of the
Judiciary, or to sympathize much with
the agitation of great progressives
and near progressives like Theodora
Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson over
the same thing. We have had a little
disturbance in southern OTegon over
the proposed recall of Judge Coke, but
the project is apparently a failure.
The Judicial recall In Oregon has
newsr been Invoked. It may never be.
Probably it never will be for the rea
son that people are not pleased with
the rulings of a Judge on any mere
question of law. They havte not lost
their common sense.
But If It Is proper to recall a gover
nor, or a mayor, or any other admin
istrative officers for dishonesty, or
neglect, or malfeasance, or Improper
and immoral pergonal conduct, or for
drunkenness, or vicious practices, or
for any reason that convinces the
public of his unfitness to discharge
the duties of his office, why should not
a Judge be recalled for the same rea
son or reasons? ,

Christiana, In the eastern part of this

cabin around which, 0 years ago, raged
toe ' Christiana Hlot," ona of the most
, famous and bloody conflicts between
slavery and anti-slavery elements be
fore the civil war.
! . The Christiana riot was the out-
growth, of an attempt by a Maryland
I slave holder to regain possession of
four runaway slaves. The negroes,
i who were claimed by Edward Gorsuch
j as his property, crossed the Susque
I hanna river at the Columbia bride,
I and by means of the famous under
j ground railroad were spirited to the
eastern border of the county, where
! they were detained until arrangements
j could be made for their transporta
t tion further north. '

"give i'the alarm. When the party, con-
sisting of Marshal Kline, Edward Gor-
such, Dickinson Gorsuch, his son, Dr
Thomas Pearce, a nephew, Joshua Gor
such, and two hired assistants, ar
rived with their warrants at Christiana
on the morning of September 11, 1851,
the fugitives, who were secreted ln
the cabin of a negro named ParKer,
were prepared for battle.
Marshal Kline and Edward Gorsuch
battered down the door of the cabin
and asked the slaves, hidden in the at
tic, to surrender. The negroes refused
to surrender and. tbe warrants were
read to them. About this time Cast
ner Panaway and Elijah Lewis, two
white men known for their strong antl
slavery ideas, appeared , upon the
scene. They were called upon by the
marshal to assist. In capturing the
slaves, but positively refused to lend
their aid. .
Then the marshal's party attempted
to sjorm th3 attic, the negroes opened
fire and Edward Gorsuch was killed
and Dickinson Gorsuch and Dr. Pearce
were wounded. Noting that the cabin
was surrounded by armed negroes,
Marshal Kline gave up the attempt to
capture the slaves. , .-, -
The federal authorities promptly
took steps to prosecute the rioters.
All the negroes who participated in
the riot were arrested, together with
several white men, Including Hana
way, Lewis and Joseph Scarlett. They
were taken to Philadelphia and there
tried on the charge of treason. The
trial lasted 15 dayB and, although the
presiding Judges, Grjer and. , Kane,
,v:rc mgio tuuuK uro-siavery men.
the Jury acquitted the prisoners. What
lent addition Interest to, the-exercises
today was the Dresence at, the unveil
ing of Peter Wood, a negro who, as a,
boy, took part ln the riot, armed with
a corn cutter. The family of Edward
Gorsuch was also represented.
TESTS AND COMPETITION TO BE
V ; FEATUHS. -
Growers to Profit by Unique Spraying
"' ' ' Contests.
- Spokane, Wash., Sept. 9. (Special)
Demonstrations of power, traction
and hand apparatus and nozzle will
be featured at, the spraying, machine
competitions in connection with the
fourth National Apple Bhow In Spo
kane, November 23 to 30. Gold, silver
and bronze medals will be awarded In
each of the classes by Judges to be ap
pointed by the American Society of
Agricultural Engineers. The trials
are open ta the, world. ' , . ''
The purpose of the tests and compo
tlons is to give growers .the benefits of
the most approved inventions and
modern Improvements in . Bpraying
machinery, which has become such an
important part in commercial or
charding through the United States
and Canada, and it is thought that the
competitions will do much to stimulate
a more general use of apparatus for
the protection of orchard and field
crpp3, also to encourage the manufac
turers who are endeavoring to supply
the horticulturists with machines ade
quate to met tha requirements of the
work to be performed.
"Perhaps no class of agricultural
machinery has shown more rapid ad
vancement during recent years than
those employed to protect fruit trees
from the ravages of Insects and fun
gi." said Ren H. Rice, Bscretary of the
National Apple show, inc., "and to
bring out the highest development as
w?ll as the improvement of the, meth
ods of application of spraying mater
ial it has been decided to give a series
of tests under proper authorization.
"This is assurance that the com
petitions will be conducted in a tnor
ough and scientific manner and should
be of assistance to the grower in se
lecting machines suited to their re
quirements. The officials of the com
petitions will be experienced Judges,
observers, practical horticulturists
and competent engineers." ', ; ;

of my seven childern of cough. ' My 2
months' old baby has had a most se

could not cure and that baby would
surely die. Several of our relations

the ending of the child's life. ; Two
