. Thu spirit is alive IN TIIK COURTS. I recently wrote to
members of the supreme court asking if they did not consider lynching
nothing less than murder. I failed to get an answer, and it was tho
same way with regard to the sheriff.
In response to another letter I received an insulting reply from a
minister. ',,- ;
I believe every one of a mob A RED HANDED MURDERER
whether he ba the tail end member or a leader, and it is my opinioi.
that aul people connected with a lynching, whether, they be ouly on
lookers or- not, should be sentenced o the PENITENTIARY,
I consider people who bum negroes as SAVAGES. Many aro
trying to belittle this great question. It is greater than ALL TIIK
OTIIER PROBLEMS combined.

. U1TCL5 SASTS INTEREST.
Xot the least among the element
to tie immensely benefitted and ex
panded in the great scheme of progress
binuring to Astoria, are the holdings
and departments of the government in
and about this district the three forts,
the buoy station, the quarantine post;
and it goes without saying that they
will receive due attention just as soon
as the access is felt in other and allied
The federal quarantine quarters
acres the river might be well improved
s it is, without waiting for any sug
gestive movement; there are some
things needed over there that should
have gone in a long while ago, notably,
extensive and comfortable quarters and
equipment (for the accomodation of pat
ients billetted there under the opera
tion of the quarantine laws, all of
which are absolutely wanting now.
There are facilities for the handling of
ships under stress of quarantine,
plenty of them and all up to date, but
the main essentials for handling human
ity under embargo are conspicuously
absent and sorely needed. Just why
this matter has been neglected all thi
time, is one of the mysteries that are
insoluble beyond the limits of the Dis
trict of Columbia and the especial de
partment having touch and authority
in the premises. We would like to see
something done to put this important
station on full and proper footing.
A BUSINESS PROPOSITION.
The Wholesale Liquor Dealers As
sociation, of Astoria, has gone on re
cord, in unequivocal terms, as opposed
to the presence of dance-halls in this
city; they have not minced the matter
nor thrust any ambiguities in the text
of their formal declaration; and while
we believe the emanation to have been
inspired from purely business motives,
without an atom of sentiment behind it,
we commend it as a timely expres
sion from an effective source, snd one
that will be heeded
Where sentiment fails to achieve a
jpopular object, business interest may be
relied upon to succeed, and it Is,
invariably, the sounder predicate of the
two. In this particular case the' con
clusion is inevitable, that if the liquor
interest can dispense with the dance
halls' there , is no other line that can
logically claim any benefit from their
presence; hence, the safe inference that
the halls will go. This will 'be 'a long
step toward municipal purification, and
public' sentiment ts forging new depart
tores' that must follow in rapid sequence.
The same old issue is being tried out,
regulation, or obliteration. If the first
is not submitted to, the second al
ways transpires. Only it seems queer
that men engaged in these lines will
never learn the lesson, however, dften
It is proven to them. ':
REVISES THE JURY SYSTEM.
The courts of this country are brist
ling these days with "causes celebres"
and the empanelling of juries is fest
attaining to the measure of an art, or
perhaps, a science; at all events, the
whole people are in such intimate and
complete touch with the mesh of de
tails, attaching to the cases in point,
as to make it almost impossible to get
jurors enough to fulfill the law with
anything like due observance of its
exactions as to previous knowledge or
influential sentiment. It would look as
if ther was ho relief for the peculiar
situation save through a complete re
vision of the jury system of the coun
try, and the adoption of the English
course of appointing a jury direct rom
th federal electorate and keeping it in
Mrvjcs for Ml 12 month. passing
front court to court throughout a given
district, always and ever on jury duty
and doing nothing els. There is some
thing professional in this ides, but we
would soon get used to it, and the
supreme advantage, would be gained of
having a jury amenable to service at
all times, and It would be, relatively,
less costly, than the procedure now in
vogue. It is the . only solution that
presents itself at the present writing
sod we have no idea it wiU invoked any
way soon. - "

A DANGEROUS LEADER.
President Calhoun, of the United
Railways, t San Francisco, strikes us
as a dangerous leader in public affairs
just at this juncture, and we expect
to hear of his early suppression. He is
making a tremendous effort to place
himself in an attitude of safety as
against the operation of the laws he has
broken his deals with the board, of
supervisors and his unescapable con
nection with the grafting push of the
Bay City. He is taking a bold and
audacious stand, thrusting himself for
ward with an adroitness and suddenness
that vouches for the certainty of his J
questionable purposes. He is under the
ban of the law; he is in contempt of
organized labor; he is the self-assertive
champion of the men with whom he hes
had nefarious dealings and is altogether
in wretched odor in all places where
honor and justice still maintain in the
His latest move is towarj the orga
nization of a "vigilance committee'' and
we opine that when he has established
it, some cruel, reactionary force will so
direct its energies as to involve the man
who created it, and meet out a retri
butive measure of justice that will
prove embarrassing to one of Calhoun's
aggressive, yet, sensitive, nature.

HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE.
: Astoria, May 24, 1907.
We are sorry that any clergyman of
any denomination should so degrade
the name and calling of the gospel min
istry as to take any part whatever in
the Corey -Gilman matrimonial farce.
We are not proud of the man who made
mockery of the ordinance of holy matri
mony by teing present to bless in the
name of the Christian church such an
unholy alliance. We are sorry he so
rar failed to recognize the dignity of his
calling. And we wish here to enter a
disclaimer. The individual who per
formed the ceremony, while at the pres
ent time he occupies a congregation
pulpit, to its discredit, has his ecclesias
tical standing with the Presbyterian
church, not with the Congrcgationalists,
