, The members of the city council are
in a quandary as to what to do with the
Coxey army when it arrives. This army
contains 700 men, and they realize that
the city is practically powerless ti com
mand them to leave or to demand any
thing whatever of them. The serious
ness of ,the situation in a national sense
is made apparent by the object lesson
which The' Dalles is to receive, and
which nearly every city and town in the
countrv will receive. The trouble is
aggravated by the sympathy given them
by labor unions, and the ovations they
receive en route to the. capital. . This
strengthens them in their purpose and
they are led to believe they are enlisted
in a righteous cause. But while, so far,
the various contingents of this great
army have claimed to be law-abiding
and peaceable,' there is every element of
anarchy in it, and they, need only to be
mobilized and harangued by fiery speak
ers to enter upon a career of carnage and
. rapine which might tear the nation
asunder. Chaos would reign and a gov
ernment ot the people and by the people
would have to be again entered in his
tory as -a failure. Considering these
facts it becomes a 'matter of extreme
gravity as to the reception they ore-
given en route, and a matter of great
responsibility on the part of every citi
zen. Every intelligent and worthy man
should weigh the matter carefully in his
. own mind before lending his moral or
financial support to a horde of men w.ho
have the power to inaugurate a bloody
civil war in our midst. He ehould
analyze its component parts, and ascer
tain its desires and intentions. There
are probably son.e worthy men among
them, but it is certain the majority are
vagabonds : and ".would not' work
if work was offered them. The army
claim to be peaceable, but already we
have seen that they have seized a train
at St. Paul, also at Butte, Mont., when
refused transportation. We have seen
that when work was offered in individual
cases they did not accept it. The sin
cerity pf their motives may thus well be
questioned. ' .
The intention of the army is stated to
be to march to Washington and demand
labor. This is a question for congress
to decide. Their action will be guided
by the consensus of opinion of the nation.
If the army is feted and hurrahed en
route' by all the people, their demands
muet be taken as jast, and to be com
plied with. ' It is yet, perhaps, top early
to decide definitely, as to the movement.
' Developments must be awaited, but at
the first intimation of' lawlessness or
violence it is the duty of every patriotic
citizen to raise against them and that
quickly and effectually.
Since the above was penned comes
the news of the affray at Billings, Mont.
Our fears are hence confirmed that there
is danger in the formation of these large
bodies of undisciplined men. The news
comes like the firing of the first shot at
FortSumpter. Is it the prelude to a
general and bloody .strife, or will the
native good sense of the American people
now rise to the emergency, and put down
this vagrant army?
FEARED HIS WIFE THE MOST.
The Jnror Knew His Spouse and
fore Disobeyed the Court,
On one occasion Judge Andrew Elli
son was trying an- important case at
Macon City, and it was desired to rush
it through, in order to make way for an
other case coming' up next morning,
says the St. Louis Tost-Dispatch. The
court instructed the jury. and court of
ficials to return after supper that
night, as it was intended- to hold a
night session. At seven o'clock all the
officers, numerous witnesses and the
jury, vith one exception, were prompt
ly on hand. Of course, nothing could
be done without the absent juryman.
The minutes ran into hours and still
the prodigal didn't return. At a late
hour court adjourned without having
accomplished anything. Next morning
sharp at nine o'clock the : twelve jury
men were in the box: His honor
scanned the crowd and asked for the
truant. He was pointed out and the
court ordered him to stand up. .
"Mr. ," said the judge, address
ing' the derelict, "didn't you under
stand the order of the court last night
requiring the jury to be on hand after
"Yes, your honor," said the juryman,
explaining, "but you see I live quite a
ways out of town and my wife gave me
an order prior to the court's order and
her order was that I shouldn't stay in
town over night. I considered the
matter, and concluded it was safer to
risk your honor's displeasure than
her'n, because," he added, earnestly,
"I know her!" .
The court looked solemn a moment,
as if weighing some mighty problem,
tnen a smile started across his face.
and the bar, court officers and specta
tors broke out in tumultuous laughter.
The juryman was forgiven; there were
many there who could, perhaps, ap
preciate his position.
A GREAT ENGLISH JURIST.
Some Queer Traits of the Late Sir James
It was said of the late Sir James
Fitz james Stephen, of the high court of
justice, who retired from the bench m
1S91, that he was the greatest author
ity on criminal law that the bar has
The stories told of his severe utter
ances and of his gentle and merciful
deeds would fill a volume, says the
New York Sun. . Although his manner
was rough and his sentences invariably
pronounced in a harsh voice, genuine
distress always appealed to his kind
heart and won his sympathv. His
lordship never had the slightest hesi
tation in rebuking a barrister, of no
matter how high standard, who failed,
even for Vin instant, to respect the dig
nity of the court, 'or who took unfair
advantage of a witness. And Sir
James' rebulres . were often more
dreaded than the adverse verdict of -a
jury. . On the other hand, he would go
far out of his way to assist a struggling
young barrister who lacked only ex
perience. - It was said of him that he was a law
yer among literary men and a literary
man among lawyers. His speeches and
his legal decisions ran in a style that
reminded one of Macaulay. whom he
had evidently taken for his literary
model. . His literary sketches bear the
stamp of a sound mind and good judg
ment. His first production was a
series entitled:,- "Essays by a Barris
ter," which appeared in the Saturday
Review and secured for him a foothold
in the literary world. While on the
bench many of his'decisions and utter
ance were severely criticised. '
"I should not believe a man on .his
oath," he once said, "who, told .me he
did not care for getting on." That re-
marK was criticised in nearly every
publication in England, much to his
lordship's disgust. The small things
of life did not interest him very much
and he frequently amused a roomful
of barristers and spectators by asking
the meaning of something which an
ordinary child might know
. Cleanliness ot tlie English.
"An American writer," says Tid-Bits,
"praises the English as the cleanest
people on earth, and declares that the
reason for our extra cleanliness is be
cause the fogs and smoke of our" island
. would make us the dirtiest people in
the world tout for our instinctive clean-
liness. . The concluding paragraph of
his appreciative remark, is worth quot
ing: 'It is to the magic of the tub and
towel that the matchless complexion
and the superb figures. of the English
women are due.' ' . . ' - - .".

credit to itself for its. ingenuity, but a
wider acquaintance . with the world
would probably lessen its pretensions.

their wits have almost -of necessity

veloped, at least in certain directions.
Capt. Lugard, the African traveler,
quotes his 'brother as expressing the
highest admiration for "the wonder
ful instinct" of the jungle tribe of
Gonds, in India, with- whom he had
practiced tiger shooting.
"If you dropped a Gond from a bal
loon in the heart of a forest unknown
to him, and then suddenly 'went for
him with a thick stick, he would take
the identical path that a tiger would
adopt,- and it would be found to be the
shortest possible way out of the jun
Capt. Lugard bears a similar testi
mony to the ready wit of the Swahilis,
natives of east Africa. He had occa
sion to build a fort with all speed, and
for that purpose he needed poles. They
were difficult to procure, but as he re
marks: "The Swahili is a wonderful
feUow when pressed, for 'making
bricks without straw.' "
..'Not a tree was in sight, and there
were only a dozen axes for two hun
dred and fifty men; but he sent all
hands out after timber. Each man was
to bring a log, or two men might bring
one log, if it was exceptionally large,
and only after that was done were
they toibe at liberty to collect their
own food for the day. And the logs
were brought. In Capt. Lug'ard'p
"Tell a Swahili he has to produce a
pole before he can eat his dinner, and
though you cannot see a tree on the
horizon, he will arrive with a pole be
fore you have decided in your' mind
which is the best direction in which to
start your search." .
Trapped by a Photograph.
Here is a curious little story told by
an English solicitor. He had among
his clients a" few years ago a notorious
company promoter, whose financial af
fairs came to grief.. One day, happen
ing to pass by a stationer's shop, his
attention was attracted by a portrait
of Mr. , the well-known "barrister.
Mr. was attired in a wig and gown
and in his hand he held a paper on
which the solicitor's sharp eyes caught
the name of his client. His curiosity
aroused, he purchased the photograph
and proceeded o decipher the words of
Mr. 's brief, speedily discovering
that they indicated that a warrant was
"out" for the arrest , of his client. In
a few hours the man of finance was out
of England. . -.
A rutins Term.
"Why do you use such peculiar
terms?" asked a lawyer's wife of her
husband, who had returned worn out
by his day's labors. -VI don't see how
you con have been working all day like
a horse." "Well, my dear," he replied,
"I've been drawing a conveyance all
dav: and if that isn't working like a
horse, what is'?' .
