In considering the utility of the laws
regarding the workings of the justice
c urts, it has been suggested that one im
portantitein should be remedied. These
laws should be soamonded that justices
of the peace cannot issue warrants for ar
rest without an order from the district
attorney, except the complaining wit
ness be first required to file bonds for
costs. .This would result in the saving of
hundreds of dollars to the several coun
ties In cases 'where the cause for com

Salem Journal : Mr. Ford has intro
duced a bill for county attorneys, which,
if it is acceptable to the counties of this
judicial district, will abolish the present
office of district prosecutor, and give each
county an attorney. Most of thecountios
now pay out from one to two thousand
dollars a year for prosecuting attorney
eevlces. Under this bill they would not
pay so much and perhaps get a cheaper
grade of service, as the attorneys who
will give all their time for from (000
4:000 a year would not rank in ability
with the present public prosecutors.
The richest man in Oregon has 'join
ed the silent majority," and some Port
land papers are holding his career to pub
lie gaze as an example of the success
which attend shrewdness, good judgment
' and perseverance. 1 he time la coming
when the accumulation of twenty mil
lions will be looked upon moro as a mis
1 fortune than a success. To acquire that
much property is to enslave one's soul in
protecting and adding to it, and the un
fortunate possessor of millionaire is the
one to whom good wholesome sleep is a
, sT.'anger. The millionaire is harassed;'
' by TK'ggars, waylaid by fanatical assap-.
sins, and surrounded by false friends who
stick to him for his money. There is
nothing in a millionaire's success for
young men to emulate. That nation is
on the surest footing whose sons are not
millionaires but honorable eiticens whose
'daily toil at labor or in 'business' yields a
fair Mopetency "but yields no more."

The local newspaper is universally rec
ognized as the chief factorn .furthering
the enterprise and giving substantial
support to the industries and business of
the town in which it is published, and
although it does not pay directly in re
turn a stated amount of collateral for
the patronage it receives from its sup-"
porters and ad vertisers these constituents
do receive dollar for dollar, and more,
through the influence it exerts in bring
ing new residents to the community and
posting the people in general on the pro
gress of the town. -Exchange.
In preparing for the neck-tie ball on
Feb, 14th, it is not necessary for the la-
dios to prepare an entire costume for the
occasion. Each lady is expected to make
'two ties, using any kind of cloth or rib
bon, exactly alike, one to be worn by
herself, the other to be sealed in a blank
envelope. All the envelopes are then
placed in one basket, and as the couples
pass b the basket during tm grand
inarch, each gentleman will reach in and
get one. The- lady wearing the dupli
cate to It will lie his partner during the
evening. All those having partners will
be served first, and thus all, the ladies
are sure to get partners.
Once upon a time a certain man got
mad at the editor and stopped his paper.
The next week he sold his com at 2d
cents below market price. His property
was sold for taxes because he didn't read
the sheriffs sale. He was arrested and
fined (8 for hunting on Sunday, and he
paid f 300 for a of lot forged notes that
had been advertised for two weeks, and
the public cautioned not to negotiate
for them. He then paid a big Irishman
with a foot on him like a forge hammer,
to kick him all the way down to a news
pupe.r office, where he paid four years
subscription in advance and made the
editor sign an agreement to knock him
down and rob him if he ever ordered his

Cal Hale Positively Identified.
A telegram from Ellensburg, under
date f Jon, SOth, says:
",Cal Hale one of the men arrested for
robbing the, Roslyn bank last Septem
ber, was placed ou trial here in the sup
erior court this morning . The courtroom
was crowded. The jury was secured with
very little trouble, and the examination
of witness began immediately after the
noon recess. F. A. Aheriietliy, the cash
ier, positively idmtified Haleasthe man
who took the money from the vault.
lr. Lyons and Professor Jenkins hIbo pos
itively identified him as the robber who
handled the monev. The defense failed
to taugle them up or shake their testi
mony in the least. About 50 witness
have arrived from Oregou to testify for
the defense, and it is understood a strong
effort will 1 made, to prove an alibi.
Hale has local attorneys conducting his
case, assisted by one attorney from Ore
gon. Prosecutiug . Attorney Wager Is
lieing assisted by H. J. Snively. The in
dications are the trial will last several
days, possibly all the week. Great in
terest is being shown in the case, and
some heavy legal lighting is ex peeled as
the trial progresses." ; ,
J. H. Downing gets a telegram every
day from Sheriff Wilcox,' who is in at
tendance at the trial. . The dispatch
Wednesday stated that the case had to
be postponed, owing to the sickness of
tho Judge, and no one had any idea
when the trial would commence agaih.
A Welcome Addition.
A correspondent writing from Waener,
Grant county, to the Long Creek Kugle,
''And still they come! Another jeti
tion is being circulated in this neighbor
hood asking that four townships lie cut
off Grant and annexed to Gilliam coun
ty. We undcrstond it is being quite
largely signed by citizens of the fonr
tow nships, they believing it would lie to
their benefit financially to be annexed
toGiliam county, thus making them
much nearer to the county scat of Gil
liam than thoy are at present to the
county seat of Grunt, which is quite a
consideration, especially during winter
months." . ".
"What are you doing around here?"
said the woman to the tramp who had
got over the fence just in time to escape

the interests of humanity you'll feed

The Chinook Wind.
It is a wind peculiar to this part of the
world. It is only characteristic of this
region in its greater prevalence and Its
more distinctly traceable and widespread
effects. I might add that it also has a
peculiar name here, but it is nothing
more and nothing less than the west
wind of the world west wind that Vir
gil so often refers to, the wind that Hom
er discribes in tho Odyssey as blowing
soft from tho ocean upon those fabled is
lands where winter is not, nor any horn
ing summer boat, It is also noticed by
Longfellow as descending upon the coast
of Norway, and he and other writers of
poetry and prose have often noted it in
descriptions of New England. I was fa
miliar with it during my early life in the
Connecticut valley, and when I first felt
it on the Columbia I recognized it as an
Whence it comes or whither it goes is
to a certain extent mysterious but it be
longs to no one quarter of the globe. It
is more distinctly of this region, I be
lieve, than of any other. It is many
times more abundant and prevalent here
than on the Atlantic coast, or iu the In
terior of this country. But I think I am
not mistaken in saying that we are fa
vored lieyond many other parts only in
having more of it, Hwecpingin from the
west in these latitudes, it gives Eastern
Washingtion and Montana an earlier
spring than Minnesota, and it is not ex
hausted entirely in crossing the 'conti
nent, but touches the New England hills
and valleys to unlock the rigors of winter
still later there, saysGovernor Semple in
the leattlo Post-Intelligencer.
Tho San Francisco Examiner says they
are due to the drawing in of the. warm,
moist air that hangs over the Japan
current onto the cold region between
the Pacific ocean and the Rocky moun
tains. Their effect is to moderate the
climate. ' .

Tuesday night was the coldest of the
winter, so far, being 10 deg. below lero.
During the last week snow fell to the
depth of aUmt 10 inches, but owing to
the terrific winds most of it was blown
off the ridges into the low places, mak
ing frightful drifts. Stockmen are just
rolling the hay out to their stock, feel
ing confident that the backbone of w in
ter is at lust broken. It has been an ex
tra hard winter, but we have not heard
of any loss of stock as yet.
The revival meetings closed Sunday
evening. Considering the fact of this
being a small community and as "tough
as a boiled owl," these meetings were
tiie grandest success on record.' During
the two weeks there were 23 eon versions,
among the most prominent and influen
tial citizens of the community. Among
those converted and w ho united with
the church Sunday are: John M. Drow n
and wife, R. G. Robinson and wife. It.
M.Johnson and wife, Geo. Perry arid
wife, M. O. Clarke and wife, and many
others who are also among our most in
telligent people.. 'Our jieople extend
sincere thanks to their Condon neigh
bors for their valuable assistance during
the meetings. Rev. Raw lins, "the jo
ker," as the hoodlums style him, is one
of the few w ho can "dehorn" Satan
without having him held down, in spite
of his imps trying to kick him off.
"Woman's Rights." .
Beecukk Flat, Jan. 27th.
En. Glow! : -Through the columns of
your paper I wish to say a few words to
Some of the business men of Condon
have spoken disrespectfully of me con
cerning a paper which I circulated in
that town recently. I would inform
these gentlemen that it was not a re
monstrance I was circulating. I give
myself credit for having better sense
than to attempt anything of that kind
at the present time, at least. It is a true
saying that "large bodies move slowly."
What I was doing then was simply
getting the ladies of Condon, Mayville
and Fossil and the sourrounding country
to sign a petition praying our governor
to recommend that the laws of Oregon
be so amended as to give ladies the right
to sign petitions for liquor license, also
remonstrances against the same.
Can any fair-minded parent or anyone
else who have the best interests of them
selves or homes at heart find any reason
able objection to such a worthy move
as this? I sincerely hope not. ,
I fully realize the unjust law that lim
its "woman's rights" in such matters,
but in common with millions of others
who are trying to do what good they can
while on this earth, I trust and hope to
to sec this law righted,. and ladies given
the rijilit to aid iu such matters which
really interests them more than it docs
the men. That I may live to see the
day when women have, these just rights,
is the earnest hope of
