The strike in Pennsylvania has turned into a bloody war. It is a demonstration of the fact that times are never so prosperous but that trouble may be expected. In spite of the boasted full dinner pall, and good times throughout the country the conditions in the mining districts . of Pennsylvania have never, in the most panic-stricken times been so ap palling as they are at the present. The public is always inclined to take sides with the striker. There is always a general sentiment in fa vor of the "bread-winner." All kinds of argument will be advanced in his favor and the blood that is now flow in so freely will be charged against capital and the mine operators. It has always been the case and will doubtless continue. But are the miners wholly guilt less? Had they the right to cast the first stone? It is like being sacrelig- ous to answer in the negative Therein lies a great defect. Therein lies the spark that kindles tne name, sentiment should never rule. Practical methods and com mon sense should always rule, Wherever they rule there Is always success. There are two sides to all questions. There are two sides to the question Involved between the miners and the operators in the present fight If very man would speak out from his honest judgment and lay aside sentiment, he would admit this. As long as men -refuse to do this there will be trouble. One side is rarely ever wholly right. Every one in the wrong Bhould be condemned accordingly, whether he Is rich or poor, whether he Is a rich mine-owner or the commonest shov eller. The miner Is not by nature a slave. Slavery has been abolished Jn this country. He Is not compelled to ork. Every able-bodied man in this country can make a living. Every man . strong enough .to mine can make a living elsewhere. If he does not like mining he can seek other em ployment. If he is not paid proper wages he may secure other employ ment. He does not have to mine. The mine-owner has a right to ran hia mine. If ho can get men at low prices he has that right. If men are willing to work at low wages they have that right. The man who Inter feres with their work is violating the law. He has no right to dictate to either. There Is where the troublo leads to serious results. There lies the cause of bloodshed. If the miners, or other strikers, when they quit work would quit the premises of their employer, all of the trouble would end there. But it Is tho hanging around, nnd Jeering and stoning and interfering generally that brings on the trouble. And tho ppoplo stand back and encourage tho strikers to violate tho law. They Imow they a in the wrong when they arc doing it, but they oxcuse themselves by saying one is a poor laboring man nnd the other is rich. "For this reason they would licenso tho one to shod blood and condemn the other. It is all wrong. Tho mine-owner is guilty of all that ho is charged with doubtless, but If ho should do half so badly as the striking miner the public would rise up and lynch him. In theso progressive, practical times, prejudice and sentiment such matters should bo cast aside and justice given, let it be to tho rich or poor. GIVE BUFFALO BILL'S WILD WEST A HEARTY WELCOME In no section of our great country should the "Wild West receive warmer welcome than in the states from which it derived its birth. To every man of middle age, Col. Cody'i red Indians in war paint; his cowboys Vaqueros, stage coaches, bucking ponies, prairie schooners, buffalo herds, equestrian quadrilles, battle and skirmish scenes, this remarka ble exhibition will be full of reminis cence, for his memory will be refresh ed regarding the days when the west ern pioneers fought for possession of the territory now nestled in state hood among the galaxy of stars Old Glory. The younger generation will derive Instruction in American history from the object lessons here presented. We predict a tremendous reception in this section of the Wild West and a great financial success for the exhibition. Hold-ups are getting to be fashion able all over the country. When one comes to think about it, it is the easi est way in the world to get money. Not one man in a hundred will resist a man who gets the "drop" on him and the average tough knows this, About tho only remedy against the hold-up fiend is the adoption of a uni versal custom of never carrying any thing valuable on one's person. When the footpad runs up against this it will cause him to change his calling. It will discommode the average news paper man, however, to leave off his valuables, having grown accustomed to carrying great loads of them about with him so long. With all of the kicking against Kill and Burn" Smith, his comrades are standing by him to a man. The war that appeared to be so Inhumane to the civilian appears to have found justification in tho eyes of the men who did the fighting. Whether right or wrong, tho civilian has always caused more trouble than tho man who bore the brunt of battle. While campers are out having good time they should always bear in mind the fact that they should be careful not to let any fires get started through their carelessness In the woods. Big forest fires are costing this country a great deal nowadays, People who hide money about their homes should see a lesson In tho case of the Baker City woman who lost S2000 In a fire this week, which she had sewed up in one of her skirts. Tho revolutionists and strikers are petting to the point wh.ero they are rivalling Tracy in bloody deeds, if not as heroes. Tho forest reserve Is now tho vital question In Eastern Oregon, FOR GOOD ROADS. For ono reason or another tho good roads movement, which was advanc ing so vigorously in tho West a few years ago, has seemingly lost head way nnd has hardly movement enough to attract attention, In tho East, how ever, It Is still a subject of wide In terest and appears to be juogrosslng with a fair degree of rapidity. Ono of tho curious features of tho later developments of tho movement Is that sonio of the Southern states are doing more work in the way of road Improvement than tho richer and more thickly settled states of tho North. Tho Southern peoplo of various localities have found that they can attract (Northern tourists and winter visitors by .con structing Rood roads for drlvlnir. evel- n Ing nnd automobiling, and thoy have nromntly set to work to provide them A recent report from that section of tho country says that In tho nioun tains of Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee there are now many stretches of roadway varying from ten to 50 miles in length that are as near perfect as modern engineering can make thorn, so well graded, in fact, that one may drive over them at a trot every foot of the way. Starting from the tourist centers, tho work of improvement has radlat oil toward tho manufacturing conn ties. Mecklenburg county in North Carolina has tho credit of leading in tho work. For the past 12 years the countv has employed convicts at road construction and now has over 100 mllps nf nmcadamized highways so excellent in every respect that per sons interested in rou.i improvement in other states visit the county to lu snect them. An interesting experiment in road work is about to be tried in Now York for the purpose of testing tho steel track highway suggested some HniP nan hv General Rov Stone. Tho plan Is to lay two broad, flat, steel rails of standard wagon guage along nnnntrv lilirhwavs so as to form a smooth and solid track for vehicles. A recent account of the plans for making tho experiment says: "The Automobile Club of America has de termined to try it in Now York City, and President Schwab of the United States Steel Corporation has offered to provide the steel for ono mile of double track in the city and the City Engineer is to designato tho streets where the tracks shall be laid. The rails, a foot wide, are already being made at the mills of the steel trust. They will bo located not entirely to accommodate automobiles, but partly in some streets devoted to heavy trucking. By locating the steel ways on either side of the street car tracks it is expected that they will draw off the truck wagons, which are prone to use the street car tracks and delay passenger transit, and so will result in quickening surface transit materi ally. Some of the steel road will bo laid on streets devoted to carriage driving, so that it can be tested under varying conditions." It is estimated that at present prices of steel the cost of such a road .would be about ?1500 a mile, but while the first cost would be high it is claimed by the advocates of tho system that it would bo the cheapest form of road construction in the long run. The test will of course be watched with interest through the country and may result in giving a new impetus to road Improvement everywhere. Exchange. TMRKH The treatment of Catarrh with antiseptic nnd astringent washes, lotions, salves, medicated tobacco and cigarettes or any external or local application, is just as senseless as would be kindling a fire on top of the not to make .it boil. True, these give temporary relief, but the cavities and passages of the bead and the bronchial tubes soon fill up again with mucus. Taking cold is the first step towards Catarrh, for it checks perspiration, and the poisonous acids nnd vapors which should pass off through the skin, are hack nnon the mucous membrane or inner Kkin, producing inflammation and excessive flow of mucus, -rfs"--" ;nli nf which is absorbed into the blood, and through the circulation reaches every part of the system, involving the Stomnch, Kidneys and other parts of the body.
