The town of Ymir is winning an unenviable reputation. Prom this distance it appears that it' has fallen into
the hands, of a timid and at the same
time reckless class of olllcials. It is a.
sorry day for any community when th»
law-enforcing power rests with ollicial»
of immoral character, who us." tlio authority given them by thoir fellow
citizen's not for thu good of those who
have honorée] them with temporary
power, but for tho gratification of their
own lust«. It is ono of thn curses of
British Columbia today, that so many
of her towns and oities, especially in a
judiciary sente, aro at tlio mercy of
notoriously corrupt anel immoral polie»
justices who sit in judgment over the
honourable citizen, and whose decisions, from timidity or seared moral
sensibilities, turn justice into a farce
and shock common decency (by decisions infamously unrighteous. The
Ymir Mirror undertook to expor-e and
correct evils of tho nature referred to
in its own town and the conséquence
is, it has all but lie>en driven out eif
business, and is now only able to gel
out » small one page paper. Had this,
paper (The Pioneer') at any time during ihe recent or present' etilli nilty in
police cir-les taken upon itself the task
of laying bare the true existing conditions it would now Is» more condemned than praised. The successful coun
try newspaper can only reflect public
si'iititiivnt, and public sentiment bt'tjto
niniisirntod more by the acts of public
ollicials than by journalistic or pulpit
