GUARD THE BOYS.
The effects of bad associates and of
leaving boys to be their own guardians,
and to grow up' -without parental re
straint is again made -visible in a bril
liant object lesson. .A year ago or more
Hawthorne, Rowe, Savage, Klein and
perhaps another boy or two, began go
ing together, and one of them at least
being criminally inclined, soon set the
others to thinking in that line. As a
result they soon began a series of petty
pilfering, finally winding up with the
burglary of Mays & Crowe's store,
which, as it now appears, was done for
the purpose of getting guns and ammu
nitionwith which the gang intended to
hold up the passenger train near the
high trestle west of town. Their pun
ishment came speedily. As a result of
their associations, one is in the peniten
tiary, another is awaiting a trial for
murder, and the other two are awaiting
trial, for burglary and robbery, which
will probably give them a long term in
the penitentiary. Besides this, one
partner in crime, Hayes, is dead, and
Karpolis, the Indian policeman, is mur
dered. Most of this chain of crime was
due to parental irresponsibility.
About the nerviest thing we have
seen in a long time is the attempt of the
so-called "Pinkerton detectives" of Port
land to claim the credit of discovering
the clew by which the robbers of the
. Express office here were caught and the
money secured. As a matter of fact the
entire statement in the Oregonian yes
terday, as far as it relates to the Pink
ertons, is without shape, and void.
They had nothing to do with it, and
their statement is made from whole
cloth. Sheriff Driver was the first to
suspect Savage and Klein, and he fol
lowed his clew to a successful end. If,
as the Pinkerton's assert, they had fur
nished the clew, through Hawthorne's
statement, why did not they or the de
tectives here follow it? It was certainly
worthy of attention. The truth is, that
the Pinkertons are trying to gain a lit
tle cheap notoriety at some one's else
expense. The public generally is very
chary about Pinkerton evidence, even
under oath, and the claim made by
them in this case will not improve their
reputation any in this neighborhood.
Special Agent of the Surety Company
F. B. Lord and Route Agent Beck
with were untiring in their efforts and
rendered efficient aid to the sheriff.
According to the latest dispatches the
Japanese have chased the czar across
the Yalu river and given him only three
days in which to die. The czarovitch is
expected to marry the daughter of the
Mikado at Ping Yang, on the coast at
Whoa-Haw-Gee ; and Princess Alix will
open the campaign for David Bennett
Hill with prayer and a hatchet, at Sken
eateles, some time if not sooner. Von
Caprivi at the request of Bismarck, has
resigned the poeition of chancellor of
the Prussian empire in favor of Li Hung
Chang, who has presented his three
eyed peacock feather to Von Hohenlohe
Schillingfurst who refused it because Li
Hung had just had. the yellow jack-at
Shanghai. The most sensational thing
of the week, however, is that Marshal
Yamotaga attacked Kin Len Chong, near
Tai Len Wan. He cheered his troops
on by shouting, "I Kin Chow the rag
with Feng Hoang Cheng from Moukden
to Peking and back Aigin."
There can be but one result to the war
between Japan and China. On the one
side is a warlike nation, full of vim and
patriotism, its soldiers willing to die in
the cause for which they are fighting, to
the greater glory of their country. On
the other side is a nation with no love of
country, whose petty officers plunder the
privates and whose higher officers
plunder those beneath them. A country
where the admiral sells the guns and
ammunition from his ships, where the
general paints clay balls and passes them
off for cannon balls. Where the poor
devil ot a soldier has nothing to gain if
victorious and everything to lose, which
is his life, by staying in the fight. A
country whose 'officers alone are re
warded in case of victory, and whose
soldiers are slaves. There can be but
one end to a contest between such forces
and that end is approaching very rapidly,
The last battle won by the Japs has
set the Chinese to thinking seriously,
and even- they are beginning to realize
that the situation is serious and that the
captnre of Peking is not only possible,
but extremely probable. The Chinese
army is an undisciplined mob, poorly
armed, and is indeed a poor and weak
reed upon which to lean. Unless out
side nations interfere, the capture of
Peking is only a question of time.
Argentine has had a severe earthquake,
and an immense damage has been done.
From latest reports, it is probable the
loss of life will reach ' 2000 and perhaps
more. Roports from the interior are
coming in slowly, but each adds to cer
tainty of the first estimates being none
too small. Whole towns were destroyed
and thousands are left homeless.
Next Tuesday is election day, and by
Wednesday night the results will be
pretty well known. It is exceedingly
hard to tell what the American people
will do under any given circumstances,
but it does not eeem possible that but
one answer will be given, and that will
be an overwhelming defeat of democracy.
- Someone in Vancouver, B. C, suggests
that the ship Ivanhoe, which cleared
lrom Seattle for San Francisco and on
which Editor Grant was a passenger,
may have sailed direct for China. This
is hardly probable, and is a very weak
straw to grasp at. The chances are that
the fate of tbe ship will never be known.
By what authority prisoners are taken
into court and examined in star cham
ber proceedings, it is hard to say. The
Portland Sun hits the matter square in
a short editorial, which we re-print.
This thing of holding secret sessions of
court has no justification either in law
For tbe many accidents that occur
about the farm or bousebould, such as
burns scalds, bruises, cuts, ragged
wounds, bites of animals, mosquitoes or
other insects, galls or chafed spots, frost
bites, aches or pains in any part of the
body, or the ailments resulting from ex
posure, as neuralgia, rheumatism, etc.

it has not yet been proved that they
ever give rise to any such, though when
large masses of rock are displaced, as
in Japan in 1891, slight local changes
