E Americans are; fearless, but are we fearless enough !
Aren't ye afraid of SOMETHING afuValU
I Are we not afraid of ourselves, of each other I How
few of us dare to live out our primitive instincts, to

to' find the supreme laws, the big statutes of the moral code that is
to say, the spiritual order of our lives we must test the VALIDITY
OF CONVENTIONS. As a matter of fact we are actually afraid of
being without them, we cling to them like life belts in the big sea of
experience, instead 01 stming out and learning to swim FOR OUR'
aL ES, to make our bodies work for the spirit
These supreme laws are courage, faith in the treat spirit that can
do no evil, endurance to suffer, realising that the lieht of the spirit is
discovered only when it is most needed, IN DARKNESS. It is verv
sad that we must suffer so much to arrive at spiritual knowledge, but
u aoes not last. v e must not evade any shadow of experience, even
the vague panio of the senses, for when we are confronted with awe
of something we do not understand it leaves us in a RICHER STATE

are interested, with Portland leading.

The idea of constructing a fine auto
mobile highway from Portland to this
city and the coast resort near here, is
one that should receive the heartiest and
most practical endorsement from every
property owner en route, Bince it will
mean much for every neighborhood it
ramifies and bring thousands of people
to this section on pleasure and business
bent.' It will serve others besides the
automobilists, and will be an immense
credit to the district that maintains it
as an open highway for all sorts and
conditions of vehicles. There is nothing
so impressive as aa fine road, and
a wide, well-made, well-tended
road between the metropolis and the
City of Astoria and its score of water
ing places adjacent, will add hugely to
the interest of the tourist and investor
who shall use it. The line will be very
attractive and the lordly Columbia with
its varying majestic beauties will be an
ever-present factor and unfailing charm
on the drive, since it is the purpose of
its projector to keep the road upon the
higher levels and in touch with all
the scenic attribute of the route. We
hope to see the matter taken up with
' vim and put through to as to meet the
exigencies of another season. Xot the
least of its advantagesc will be the
drawing together in closer union and
friendlier intimacy of the two terminal
cities of the line.
BOISE'S FAMOUS CASE.
Interested scrutiny of the progress of
the great criminal case slowly unwind
ing at Boise, reveals a certain weakness
in the scheme of defense so far as
it has developed. The class of witnesses
put forward to date, and the character
of the testimony they have given, are
not contributing very largely 'to .''the
disruption of the issues founded on the
tale told by Orchard. He was foul
enough in all conscience, but he laid a
predicate that his peers in crime cannot
discredit, somehow. That he told the
truth in the main is probably the rea
son for the difficulty now so apparent
in the couree of the defense. And an
other thing that is working its silent
way into the minds of the people is that
Orchard went on the stand a confessed
and collossal criminal with his fate fixed
beyond all hope or chance of extenua
tion, and belief of what he told there
was never conceded, save a it shall be
THAT 13 A MAGNIFICENT SPIRITUAL SYMBOL. IT IS
HE WARMTH AND LIGHT AND LOVE AND rtTY OF EVERY HU
made good by the witnesses of the de
fense who are now following him. And
they are pretty nearly fortifying every
thing he said, or else leaving the cir
cumstances in such ambiguous and
dubious shape as to permit, if not war
rant, the conviction that Orchard did
tell the truth. There has not been, so
far ajt the record has reached us, a single
successful denial of a big points he made,
and until there is something tangible,
of this sort, the defense will have
trouble in impeaching the terrible story
that fell from his lips. It is too bad
that the whole system of testimony in
the case must come from the tongues
of men nurtured in crime or reasonably
and radically suspected of crime, as has
been the case, principally, in this fear
ful engagement at bar in Idaho. The
life and liberty of a citizen should rest
upon some other and wholesomer basis,
at least, in part; yet in this big issue it
seems to be the rule that scoundrels
must do all the testifying for and
against scoundrels. A palpable demon
stration of the old adage, "Set a Thief
to Catch a Thief."
THE BUSY GUN.
From the current press new there
would seem to be a widespread mania
over the country for the u"c of the gun
in settling the family trouble of tht
nation. It will have it swing, pernaps,
and then the agency of the handy lix
shooter will be discounted by some other
method just as effective and not quite
so coarse. These things go in gusts and
never last long. The American is mer
curial in his temper and tactics and
varies his resources with the seasons.
Xext year he will probably throw all bis
causes of action into the courts and
never think of personal requital at all,
though this year is apparently given
over, to the latter doctrine.
One reason why the new sun spots
may be attended by some unusual
weather, is that the weather is always
