Local Editorial Page THANKSGIVING. The thanksgiving sentiment is as old as the human race. As far back as history extends there has ever existed among men a spirit of thankfulness to the Supreme Ruler'of all for the blessings of life. This gratitude has manifested itself in various ways by the different civilized races, but the under lying spirit of dependence upon a higher power for the enjoy ments is uppermost through all. The custom of setting apart a! special religious holiday for thanksgiving in America Teaches back to the time of the pilgrim fathers. Driven by Teligious intolerance and persecution to seek freedom of con science in the western world,- they brought their devout spirit and acknowledgment of self dependence with them in their undertaking, and there can be no question that this played an important part in shaping the destinies of the American nation. In all the New England states a thanksgiving day lias been observed from earliest times as a religious festival or h...

Local Editorial Page. THE PRESIDENTS MESSAGE. President Roosevelt's message to congress is one of the longest and most interesting documents ever submitted to the national legislature. It sets forth in clear terms the ideas of one of the most positive, ablest and aggressive men that have ever filled the presidential office, covering the entire field of vital questions now before the people. For a number of years past these messages have been growing in length, owing" to the argumentative [style which has been of late introduced into their make-up. It is not enough nowadays to state the policies recommended, but the reasons are given why they should be adopted- While there is no indication' of a back down from the path of enforcing the law known as the inter state commence act against the powerful corporations which have heretofore never felt the controling force of the law, the document partakes of a conciliatory and conservative rather than a radical tone. Amendments are recommende...

FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS AUKUM. Dec. 9.— ln your issue \ the Ledger of Nov. 2ath, you mention that Ama dor county has bad her share- of tragedies. It is a noteworthy fact j that Amador county has not had a ' neck-stretching since so long ago that I don't distinctly remember. It was! 1 tbink in 1859, some Chinamen were : hung for killing a ditch tender near j Jackson Gate. If the gallows had' been made of lignum vita it would have rotted down, ere this. Uz. Fiencb, who killed Pete Wells at Oleta 24 or 25 years ago, was afraid of Amador, and got a change of venue to San Joaquin. - The mistake cost him his life, for he wa3 found guilty there, and was hung. This state of affairs is mostly attributable to the able criminal lawyers that 'Amador has had. Among the most conspicu ous wasS. B. Ax tell, James F. barley and a lot more. •When Dr. Stone killed Bell in the lobby chamber of the capital in the early 00's, S. B. Axtell, then - of this county, received the sum of SSOO for simply select...

Local Editorial Page. GRAND JURY WORK. The grand jury of Amador county was impanelled yester- day, and concluded its labors the same day. There is a feeling abroad that it is high time for this body to make a thorough and exhaustive examination of the financial affairs of the county; that the session will be something more than the perfunctory affair that the people have been accustomed to for so many years. The grand jury is a use less appendage to our govermental system unless it acts the part of guardian over the financial interests, and probes into the official acts of those who have been elected •to look after county matters. There is .no other official body directly charged with this vitally important duty, and failure in this respect serves to deepen the impression ' in the public mind that the annual meeting of this body is more of a farce than anything else. The truth is, every official body becomes a ■ farce— or something worse than a farce^ an actual peril— if its work be...
