Dr. Cook, the North Pole faker,
threatens to deliver free lectures,
exnlalnimr his rmrt in the alleged
pole discovery. We predict small
audiences. The public would rath
er pay to hear a lie than to hear the
truth free of charuc. If this were
not so. more men would attend
church. Kxchaticc. Some people
doubt very much If Dr. Cook could
tell the truth if he tried.
In reply to n number of inquiries
as to what will likely be done in re
gard to testing the legality ot tnc
recent annexation vote, believe we
nre safe in saying the present
council will take no steps toward
having the matter settled one way
or another. The councllmcn really
have nothing before them to work
upon and naturally they feel that it
is not their place to take the nulla-
live under the circumstances. If
anything is done about the innttcr
it will have to be done by individ
uals and not by the city council.
The arrest and conviction of
Fred I). Warren, editor of the
"Appeal to Reason," for mlssuse
of the mails in stretching justice
pretty far. I lis olieuse was no
greater than is committed every
day. and it looks like n case of ikt-
sedition In this instance. While
we are not in accord with Mr.
Warren's views, he lins shown him
sell to he a man of strong convic
tions with the power to express
them in a way that pleases a large
number of people. This case is
somewhat similar to that of Ilciiarr
Mcl'addcii, the great apostle of
physical culture and editor of a
publication of that title, who was
convicted also for abuse of the pos
tal laws. It is our opinion that
neither should have been convicted.

This city has been deluged with
