ONLY ONE GOOD RESULT;
Tbe violation of the law to enforce the
law ought never to be neceesary, and in
tbe advanced stage of our civilization is
not necessary. Tbe members of the
mob who hang the murderers at Ellens
barg are guilty of murder, in tbe eyes of
tbe law, and morally are equally guilty
with the men whom they put to death
in cold blood. The provocation was
great, and no doubt their act will go
unpunished, so far as courts are con
cerned ; but the effect upon the com
munity is sure to be bad, and the effect
apon tbe men themselves, who partici
pated in the hanging, is likely to be
evil, both now and during the remainder
of their lives.
There, was a time on the Pacific coast
when law was impotent, and the direct
punishment of murder, or even leeser
crimes, by lynching, becamei necessary;
but that time has long since passed.
Courts are often slow in the administration-of
justice, and. sometimes fail en
tirely ; but tbe ultimate effect of their
'ditatoriousnees and failure is far less
ril than tbe violation of law and order,
as in tbe case at Ellensburg.
Tbe only good result is the removal
-of two accursed and worthless wretches ;
-but this good, great as it is, is of no con
sequence in the light ot the evil grafted
upon tbe lives of tbe actors. If they are
men whose reasons are clear, and whose
consciences are active, the banging of
-tbe two murderers will be a cloud they
will not soon dispel. Better that two
murderers should have entirely escaped
punishment a result not at all proba
ble in this instance than that fifty or
an hundred men should have allowed
themselves to yield to the excitement,
and become unlawful slayers of their
A WAY TO AVOID DEBTS.
The O. R. & N. Co. is to be sold under
foreclosure, a great misfortune to the
rod, stockholders, directors, and other
officers. But there are otherB who are
unfortunate the hundreds of creditors
who have furnished supplies to the road,
or rendered it services, or on other
grounds . have valid claims against it.
There ' are ' several such persons in this
community, whose claims are from a
few dollars to many hundred; people
who cannot afford to lose their hard
earned money. ' i ...
The properly will be sold under a
foreclosure for ,a sum not exceeding the
mortgage; will be bought in by the
larger stockholders, and the property
will be re-mortgaged and be ready to
incur further debts. When the indebt
edness is large enough to warrant it, the
process will be repeated, and the 'small
do not undertake to eay this is the pur
pose of the present foreclosure proceed
ings, for we don't Inow anything about
it; but we have been told that that is
the way railroads haye of getting rid of
a lot of small debts and robbing people
who can't afford to be robbed ; at least
for the benefit of railroad stockholders.
. The road is now in the hands of a re
e'ver; is under the control of a court
of equity, and, under the rule that he
wno seeks equity must do equity, it may

Twice within a week the Coos bay
stage has been held up and robbed,
probably by the same person. Other
fittge8 in Southern Oregon have had
similar experiences of late , until it is
quite the fad in that section. To a man

there is no treasure for moth or rust to
corrupt, or thieves to break through and

If Wasco, county is to have a county
fair this fall, it should be something
else than a horse race. Horse races are
good things in their place, but at county
fairs they are usually a game in which
the professional gamblers do up the
local sports and unwary, but venture
some, farmers. If we can have an ex
hibition of the products of tbe county
an illustration of its resources the fair
will be a benefit; but if it is simply a
slide for dollars from the pockets of tbe
people to the purses of the transient
professional epoiVe, we better have none.
Do You Know a Good Thing
WHEN YOU TASTE IT? IF SO YOU ' ,
WILL NEVER BE WITHOUT ,
The effect upon our city of the con
struction -of new sidewalks is remarka
ble. Nothing throws discredit upon a
city so entirely as delapidated walks
and filthy streets. Just at the present
time our town is being advertised exten
sively, by reason of its business activity,
and many outsiders are looking this
way. Tbo appearance of neat walks
and well-kept streets will do much to
convince those who may come to us
that we are as thrifty as we claim to be,
and really are. Let the good work go
on. ' .
A Druggist's Semi-Annual Report.
Some four or five months ago tbe peo
ple of The Dalles were notified of a new
drugstore to be opened next door to the
First National Bank, and almost directly
opposite A. M. Williams & Co. 'a store.
The general opinion then prevailed that
two stores were plenty, and a third
Btore must therefore starve. But Barely
we are yet alive, and daily assuring our
patrons, as well as the public in general,
of our success. The doctors of our pros
perous city, who are well able to judge
our work, all acknowledge the efficient
work done on their prescriptions, for
most assuredly there never was any
better, neater, more accurate or precise
work done in this city than is at present
done at this store. '
Our stock of 'drugs is getting more
complete every day. As we learn the
wants of the people, so uo we add to our
stock, never aiming to attain- such an
immense quantity as to give it a chance
to get old; but always buy in such
amounts as to enable us to order fre
quently, thereby keeping our stock al
ways in a fresh and healthful condition.
; We know the drug business, and per
chance not much else ; but we are judges
as to the quality of drugs, and therefore
must know what we sell you when you
give us a call. Come and ask for infor
mation, if nothing else.
