' FOOLISH RESOLUTIONS.
That the president In being true to
the, principle of government has been
false to the principles of orgnnised la
bor is apparently the. decision reached
by the executive " committee ot the
Western Federation of Miners. Reso
lutions passed by tne committee last
Monday charge that as a member of
the Brotherhood of Locomotive fire
' im the president, by his action la
sending troops to quell the disturb
ance at Morencl, Artsona, has been
' goaty of treason to the principles of
organised labor. f .-:."
The Western Federation ot Miners
has not of late been in the highest-repute.
A luge body ot coal minors
troke away , from It lately, and its
methods hare not proved attractive.
The action of Its executive committee
mill not tend to bring it into renewed
favor. Union labor has always been
co the sid 3 ot order. Ot all the strikes
lately enforced, few have been marked
by any violence whatever, although the
own were in many cases severely tried.
Consequently, when the committee of
the Western Federation condemns the
president for sending troops to re
strain a mob of striking Italians from
violence it stultifies itself beyond re
traction. WITHOUT HUMAN FEELING.
The utt?r lack ot fauman feelings in
some criminals is one of the most in
explicable things In the annals of evIL
Within a comparatively few months
the Little Italy quarter in New York
lias had almost one hundred fires, most
f them the result of n Incendiary's
sorb. At the last, which was onlv at
few days ago. Ave persons were burned
to death. Including two small children.
There was no room for doubt that the
destruction and death had been deliber
ately caused, for rags soaked In kero
sene were found tin the ruins ot the
tenement, and there was a smell of
kerosene all through the building.
The dynamiter, who deals death to !
stores of innocent poeple, may be un-j bananas- oranges, guavas and alllga

their unreasoning and demented hatred
t a government, or of an existing order
o( thoigs. by the most forcible means
f attracting attention. In the case of
thls Incendiary there Is not even that '
mall help to the understanding of his j
actions. . No motive can be assigned to !
the jnaa that works in the dark to!
bring the most horrible form of death
to helpless children.
' A WISE DECISION.
The decision ' , of the supreme court
that the postmaster general has the
power to exclude publications from ad
mission to the mails as second class
matter comes as welcome news. Too
Vug have advertising devices and books
published as serials masqueraded as
newspapers or reviews, and taken ad
vantage of the rates afforded them as
second class matter. The decision of
the supreme court will stop this abuse
ot the postal service, and It will now i
be necesstary for publishers to prove
that their publications are really en
titled to the benefits of the system to
The rates on second class matter

the dissemination of news and infor

er" easily,' and there Is now some as
surance that the object of its estab
lishment will be curled out. :.
Tt Is not to be expected that the
shorl-sighled failure of the Colombian
people to ratify the treaty with the
United States will prevent the canal
from being built. Even should Colom
bia prove obdurate, the Nlcaraguan
route ' remains and by many It is
preferred to that of Panama, Nica
ragua will be perfectly willing to pass
a treaty similar to that drawn up with
Colombia, and on terms an favorable
to this country.
The isthmalan canal must be built.
It Is as certain to come, sooner or la
ter, as anything In this 'world of un
certainties can be. Such International
conveniences will not wait, despite the
scruples of a small American repub
lic. , ;
The canal la to the nation as precious
an object as the open Columbia t Or
egon. Uoth t) become accomplished
facts, and at no distant date.
CHAMPION CIRCULATION UASi
The champion circulation liar has
been discovered. His lair is In Japan,
where he is acting as editor-in-chief ot
the Thundering Dawn, a Buddhist or-
iaa just started m Tokio. Here la his
"greeting to the public."
This paper tms come from eternity.
It startt Its circulation with millions
and millions ot numbers. The rays of
(he sun, the beams of the stars, the
leaves ot the trees, the blades ot grass,
the grains of sand, the hearts ot tigers,
elephants, lions, ants, men and women
are Its subscribers. This Journal will
henceforth flow lu the universe as the
rivers flow and the oceans surge."
Any liar who can beat that can get
small Job with a big salary In New
York. Detroit Times.
The Astorian has received a copy of
L'Independant, a newspaper published
in French at Fall Fiver, Mass. It is
the .first number printed on a Duplex
press, and Its eight pages are full of
hews and have an excellent appearance
typographically. The objects of L'ln
dependant, as set forth In the leading
toltorlal, are to act as the organ ot
French-Americans, to defend the prln
ciples dear to the hearts ot the French'
Canadians, to promote naturalisation,
and to defend the institutions that are
the bulwarks ot the Catholic faith and
the French tongue in this country.
Trade unions in New Tork have. In
consequence of the Parks exposures,
started a widespread movement for the
removal of all toe walking delegates
now holding office in that city. Men ot
proved character will be installed in
the places ot those thrown out of of
fice, and although the Innocent men
will suffer with the guilty no exceptions
will be made to the rule of ousting all
the present Incumbents of the offices.
The movement, if carried to a success
ful end will result in great benefit to
the men and to the employers, too.
