courts of Seattle are up against a
poser. In trial of a criminal case the
jury, of which a prominent woman
was a member, disagreed. The judge
refused to discharge the jury and or
dered it locked up, "incommunicado"
for the night
The lady member had a two-months-old
infant that hungrily in

The worst rap at the United States
navy yet taken was when a foreign
power ordered two dozen can open
ers for each of its warships.
Mr. Balfour, as head of the great
