THE MITCHELL TRIAL.
The trial of George Mitcheli
ior the killing of Edmund Cref-
.field, the Holy Roller leader, is
progressing slowly in Seattle,
Same points in connection with
he case are worthy of note, not
because of any new phase of
liuman nature, but for the simi
3arity in the make-up of certain
For instance, it appears that
-several men claim to have been
"hunting for Creffield while he
lived in order that they might
kill him. The man who, per
lhaps, 'had the greatest provoca
tion to take the life of Creffield
-was 0. V. Hurt, of this city, but
It seems Mr. Hurt h d no
ithoaght to take life. If ever a
man ws justified In killing
an ither Mr. Hurt was entitled to
The courts, of course, must
,-see that a man who takes the
life of another comes to trial in
--orJer that he answer to society
:for the deed. However, it is
.-gratifying to note in the present
-scase a tendency of the trial judge
to allow greater latitude to the
defense than is usually allowed
"where one man has taken the
-life of his fellow. Many of us
-are conversant with the circum
stances leading to the killing and
almost without exception
justify the deed, but to allow
rMitchell to escape trial would be
ti;o establish a dangerous preced
ent and ona that would place in
jeopardy our social system.
.Hence the necessity for trial in
-cases where the majority ap
prove the deed committed.
r' From reports of the proceed
ings in Seattle it seems probable
tthat Mitchell will be acquitted.
"One thing is certain, the jury
will never agree on conviction.
Acquittal is what the verdict of
-the jury should be, for if ever

man dictated that he forfeit his

William Randolph Hearst, the
owner of more yellow news
papers than any other man on
- earth, is anxious to be president
-of the United States. The aspira
tion is a worthy one and so
-far we approve Willie but no
farther. Many better and more
-able men have had the same am
bition. If ever there was a demagogue
that man is W. R. Hearst. First,
last and all the time he poses as
friend of the laboring man in
everything that is exposed to the
publie eye. In securing men for
for his newspapers he p-ays the
top union scale of wages. This
he does, not for love of the men,
but for a purpose wholly his own
and the furtherance of his own
-ambitions. He is immodest
-enough to boast of his own virtues
in the columns of his own paoers
So fully is he convinced of his
own greatness and worth that it
often Icoks as though whtn it
comes to the democratic candi
date for the presidency of the
United States no other man need
apply. If he does apply Mr.
Hearst will prove his evil genius.
This man, this demagogic pro--moter
of yellow-journalism, is
endeavoring to secure a party of
-his own; a party which will
shout his praises (?) from the;
housetops and back him for tb.3
presidency in timo to come, and
.for this reason h? pos as the
'friend of the lal . . I : j .nan.
Make a trip by ths William
Randolph Hearst farm in Calif-
ornia and you will find it operat
ed by Japanese and Chinese and
if you find a single white man
-ca the ranch he will be the fore-!
man. But the public does not
know of this.
. No honest laboring man carry
ing his blankets and a white
skin in California need apply at
the Hearst ranch for a job unless
prepared to work lor Chinese
wages or less. We never, read
in the yellow papers of Willie
anything of the wage scale paid
on the Hearst farm but most
men are una waie that there is
such a farm.
It is true that Willie says he is
not a candidate, but having no
faith in the man we are not af
fected by his pro estations.
When it comes to demagogy,
self-conceit, and an exalted
opinion of himself generally,
William Randolph Hearst re
minds us a little of Nero lack
ing any virtues the latcer may
have possessed. v
THE REASON WHY.
Recently we published an arti
cle in which was set forth the
fact that our lands are being
grabbed by two classes of in
dividuals, the rich of our coun
try and those of poverty who
come here from foreign ' shores.
Particular attention was drawn
to the injustice done our
born through the laxity
Since the appearance
article we have been1 asked for
an opinion on the causes that
have led our law-making bodies
to overlook the matter of re
stricting foreign immigration.
It seems the solution is a simple
one a lack 01 courage and noth
Where is the candidate seeking
a nign omce who dares exploit
his views on foreign immigra
tion? Where is the man aspir
ing to become a member of our
representative bodies who dares
advocate a restriction of foreign
immigration while on the cam
paign platform? And why do
they not dare touch on this mat
ter? They feel that they would
forfeit the foreign vote and this
fear makes cowards of therri and
they become dumb. ;
The time is- no far. distant,
let up hope, when such questions
will force themselves upon:' the
public mind. The first man of
prominence who takes the right
stand on the matter of foreign
immigration and what it is do
ing to our country and becomes a
vigorous advocate of restriction,
will find a warm place in the
hearts of his countrymen.
We are cognizant of the fact
that many worthy people have
come to and are continually ar
riving on our shores, but in self
defense and protection of gener
ations yet unborn it is time to
call a halt-
During the recent warm days
the departure of our friends and
neighbors for the coast and vari
ous mountain resorts has proved
a severe test to our philosophy.
But we turned our pockets inside
out, counted the cost, and decided
to stick to our job and sweat it j
out. Blessed is he who has faith. I
From present indications one is
led to predict that William Jen
nings Bryan will accept for the
third tima the nomination for
)the presidency of the United
States on the democratic ticket
and for the third time be de
feated. An utterance of Mr.
Bryan, made in. London, Eng
land, recently convinces us that
he is still hearing a noise like
"16 to 1." Mr. Bryan is a smart
man, but he seems slow in catch
ing on to some things.
Titus Rnney, the merchant of Sum- :
Doke Hughes was in town Saturday
after harvesting supplies. His exper- j

ac his opinion that the crop would fall
short of the general expectation. Of his
own wheat field Mr. Hughes does not ex
pect 'anything greatly in exces of 12
bushels to the acre. 1 The gentleman
