On the 18th of February an officer
left Boeiirton, Lako county, says the
Jocksonrille Scntinol, with a powee of
ten citiznns to arrest II. 0. Law, tho
murdorer of young Calavan. On ar
riving at Law's house ho was found to
be absent and nine of the party con
cealed theiusolvea in the laru. The of
ficer anduothor man proceeded to
Steel's swkiup, alout i?on miles fur
ther on, where Leo Law and another
young roan wero fwding cattle. Tho
officer succeeded ia arresting them, tak
ing three revolvers from them. They
neglected to secure the prisoner), how
ever; and young Law, watching his op
portunity, snatched his revolver from
the officer and leveling it on the aston
ished office compelled the ether public
functionary to return the other two
weapons. Young Law then mounted
his horse, took one of the pistols to his
father and returning gave chase to the
officer and his man and drove them on
the dead run to the Law ranch, Oa ar
riving there the tables were turned oa
young Law aud Lis oenapauioua, the
whole posse making their appearance
with cocked guns aud compelling then
to throw up their hands and surrender.
The names of the three parties brought
in are Lee Law, and two young men
nanifd Gordon aud McKillen, and
thought to bo the three men who fired
oh tho Calavan loys from the brush
when the loys were trying to escape.
The elder Law, who killed young Cala
van, is very duliaut aud says he will not
be taken alive. It now remains to be
seen whether there are men enough in
Lake county to enforce the law. There
is pluck enough among the cattle men,
and we believe if they find the mur
derer they will make short work of him
if ho reswta, Tho lutost report is to
the effect that H. C, Law has given
himself up and was bound over aud the
other parties discharged.
The Local Paper.
The truth of the following, which we
clip from the Walla Walla Statesman,
is our reason for publishing it: '
Every honest man knows tKat tho
local newspaper adds uiuch to the
general wealth and prosperity of the
place, as increases tho reputation
abroad. It lienedts all who havo busi
ness in the place, enhancos the value
of property, besides being a publie con
venience even if not conducted in the
interest of tho political power. Its
columns are not filled with brillant edi
torials, still it benefits you in every
way. It increases trade, it cautions
against impositions, it saves you from
loss, warns you of danger, it points out
different advantages and increases your
profits. Now, if you want such a pa
per you must support it by advertising
your business in it; assist in increasing
its circulation by getting your neigh
bor to subscribe with you for it If
you want such a paper, you must not
consider it an act of charity to support
it, but as a means to increase your
own wealth as well as that of tho place
in which you live: therefore, support it
by advertising in and subscribing for
Cnrnival of Blood.
There seems of la to, to have been a
furor for human blood all brer the
land and especially on this coast. Ev
ery paper brings accounts of some hor
rible tragedy that has been committed.
Why ia itl Has the administration of
our laws become to Jaz that taey
ceaee to have aay salutary etTeet in
holding in check the lawless propensi
ties of the rabblet or has an indue
exercise of the pardoning power cut
loose the leading strings ad opened
the sluice way for a free carnival of
crime! Thf are questions that com
mend themselves to our serious consid
eration and careful study. Dissemina

In speaking of tho Columbia river,
a writer in tho February number of tho
West Shore, says :
At its mouth Cope Hancock stands,
a mighty sentinel of eyi-rlnsting rock,
bathed on one side by the virgin Co
lumbia, and lanhod by loud surges of
the Pacific on the other. A fine bea
con surmounts the cape, and its wel
come light can be seen for twenty miles
at sua, while great black guns frown
from among the firs their ever-ready
protection. But a stone's throw from
the sea-beaten rocks, to the leeward of
the eape, quietly rests tjie military post
called Fort Canby, after General Canby
of Modoc celebrity, Bmiling in the ge
nial sunshine. How like life it is 1 On
one side tho poor storm-tossed soul is
dashed hither and thither, a constant
struggle for existence, while but a span
away on the other is the haven of safe
ty where everything is peace and hap
piness forever. Baker's Bay as the
little cove is called on the east side of
cape, Is a safe and deep harbor, and is
oftea need as an anchoring place by
ooean steamers and ships awaiting fa
vorable tides. . The fortifications at Ft
Canby are a constant source of interest
to visitors at the cape who are espe
cially numerous in tho Summer season.
It has been truly said, that while Cape
Hancock is a barrier against storms it
is also a guide for tho waters of the Co
lumbia, and that if nature had only
erected a similar heud of land on tho
other side of its inctuth on tho Oregon
side of the river, the dangers of the
Columbia bar would bo unknown, for
the bar would havo ho existence.
The ranloulng Tower.
That there is a, fearful abuse of this
prerogative is patent to everybody, is
in fact the by word alid scoff of tho
community. Thought and discussion
upon this subject leads us to consider
whether or not it would be better to
abolish entirely the pardoning power,
or at least removo it from the hands of
a single man as at present and place it
in the hands of a commission, consisting
of the governor, judgo and prosecuting
attorney before whom the defendant
was tried, or such other parties as legis
lation may decide. Some measure of
that kind is clearly indicated by the ex
isting state of affairs, and our next leg
islature will ccrtninly be called upon
for fnactmenta looking in that direc
