Court, N. Y. City. E. KATX, Agent.
There is not a week
a day, but that the
from some part of Eastern Oregon of
someone being killed over a trifling
matter. The cause of this is the
reprehensible practice ot carrying
fire arms, or weapons of some kind.
A quarrel starts, and with the knowl
edge that resting on his right hip is
a regular arsenal, the owner thereof
thinks that he has carried ' for the
purpose of using it to "protect"
himself, and imagines 'the proper
time has ccme to show that he has
not been carrying it for fun, and
that he is a bold, bad man who can
not be imposed on and who knows
how to stand up for his rights, even
if Jhe has to kill his neighbor and
friend ovej a matter of an old sad
die-blanket, a six-bit cayuse, or a
broken or neglected fence. The con
venience of the weapon and the ac
cumulated freight bill on it, suggests
its Use, and the result is a dead man
and a criminal whose bands are
stained with blood and his soul
damned with murder.
We believe that four-fifths, at
least, of the killings in Eastern Ore
gon are due to the carrying of wea
pons, and that alone. "We believe
tljat the enforcement of the law
against the practice would speedily
reduce the number of murders, and
so, while preventing crime, at the
same time save every county yearly

The inventor of the revolver de
serves the execration - of mankind.
It is ofVno use to hunt with, or no
value in war. It has no mission on
earth but to wear out the hip of its
owner's pants and get him in trouble.
The claim is put up that they are
useful in defense. Where ? When ?
The robber gets the drop on you be
fore you have time to reach for
your gun, and nine times out of ten
takes it away from you, and at the
same time it is the very weapon
with which he holds you up. If the
manufacture of revolvers was pro
hibited it would be a kindness to
humanity, for while occasionally they
may be useful, it is capable of dem
onstration that where they get one
man out of trouble, they . get one
Every man caught carrying one of
the measly things should be punished
to the full extent of the law.
RUMORS OF WAR.
Officials deny, any possibility of
war between this country and Spain,
but at the same time work is being
actively pushed both on coast de
fenses and in the navy1 yards. , The
Spanish minister is reported to have
said yesterday that a war between
this country and Spain ,is possible;
aiding that "it would be a terrible
one, of which the beginning, but not
the end, might be . foreseen." -It
naraiy seems pro Da Die tnat a war
can occur.; The -United' States has
1 a 1 -a
nonesuy ana conscientiously per
formed all her duties toward Spain,
as a friendlj nation. She has guard
ed her own ports closely and done
all thirgs possible to : maintain a pol
icy of strict non-interference. The
only excuse ever offered for this
country's interference was, or is, the
inhumanity of the Spanish soldiers
and the butchery of non combatants
uutside or that we have no rignts m
Cuba. ' ' : ' -
That we will have a big bill of
damages against Spain for American
property destroyed . will no doubt
prove true, but that bill will not be
presented until ' the matter of Cuba's
independence is settled. At the
proper time the bill will be present-
ed,'and then there may be war, for
it will have to be settled.
The contest over "the million left
by the 'late- James G Fair seems to
be all settled. The, pencil will and
the claims of Mrs. Craven, his al
leged contract wife, have all been
harmonioJely adjusted and now there
is going to be a hasty division of the
plunder before any more brevet
widows or contract . wives come to
the . front. California's dead mil
lionaires have heretofore broken the
record as to the number ol mourn
ing relics, temporary wives and ex
tempore widows left uncared for.
Crittenden escaped by being killed
by one of his deputy wives, but
Sharon, Fair and others- have estab
lished the record, a record that will
not be broken until Lucky Baldwin
and is the result at colds and
sudden climatic changes.
