The coming state convention be
gins to look Frink-like.
Li Hung will get his Chang hung
if he keeps hanging about Pekin.
Republican state convention next
Wednesday, at which time Ankeny
ism is to be buried.
It is remarkable that not a single
man who was in the legislature two
years ago from this county was given
a renominatioh. Sic transit gloria
mundi.
Bryan, a protege of Southern
Democracy, may be dead anxious to
"save the country," but if he does he
differs most widely from the men
who are boosting him.
It was an error on the part of last
week's Republican to say J. H. Shive
ry did not win v out in his precinct.
He not only won out, but was a
power in the county convention.
• If Mrs. Potter Palmer does not
capture French royalty it will not be
her fault, as she is trying hard
enough. It begins to look as if all
Europe will soon be Americanized.
"The G. o7p. is owned by trusts,"
sagely remarks a Democratic sheet.
Then the Grand Old Party has at
least one winning feature over the
Democratic party, as even trusts will
not have it.
The ringing hammer in Seattle,
which is heard from morn till night,
is one of the strongest proofs that
General Prosperity continues to
dwell among us, despite the predic
tion of Weary Willie to the contrary.
And now the Northwest Republi
can, a slanderous publication which
Yvas been iseyiedL at Rlai.no this state,
has gone to the "bone yard." Such
things are soon ripe and sooner rot
ten, and the sooner rotten the better
for the community.
Chinese extinction can now be
put down as an absolute certainty.
It is as much impossible for it to
withstand the combined opposition
of civilization as it would be for the
Indians to still oppose civilization in
the United States.
Who doubts but there is a "nigger
in the woodpile" over in China just
about now? Not only is there one
already in it, but within a few days
more there will be many others, as
the Ninth cavalry regiment is now
headed for China as fast as steam and
wind can take it thither.
Weary Willie has now seated him
self on his front porch to write you a
few lines, "hoping when these few
lines reach you, they will find you
well and doing well, as they leave me
well and doing well." owing, of
course, to the liberality in the way of
salary from the silver kings of the
West
Fred H. Lysons is just the boy to
make such a turn as was made in
the late county convention in this
city in his futile attempt to rule the
convention in the interest of
"Honest (?) Tom Humes," and, if
you do not believe it, just look up
his Snohomish county record on the
county seat fight.
King county is now well rid of bad
rubbish, as it has sent the Piper hire
lings to lands unknown. For three
years they have given the good citi
zens of this county a merry chase,
but, thank God, they have finally
reached the end of their rope; and
there will be no tears shed over their
defeat unless it be by one Levi An
keny of would-be senatorial fame.
"Levi Ankeny has money to
burn," said a politician not long
since, which, by the way, was no joke,
for the Piper-Humes combination
burned it in lump lots during the late
primary contest in this county for
party supremacy. If it were not un
couth, we would say in this connec
tion that "a fool and his money soon
Dart."
Hon. Frank P. Lewis may have a
right to such a title, technically
speaking, but the most of the citizens
of this city and county are inclined to
think he permitted it to be trailed in
the dust last Thursday morning,
whe nhe accepted the temporary
chairmanship of the Kepublican
county convention, which he knew
to be the result of a most flagrant
fraud.
Whoever S. C. Anderson, of
Blame letter-writing fame is or may
be, he is a character that the Ameri
can people do not hesitate to pro
nounce an unmitigated cur. Bravery
is an American characteristic, and
the man who succeed? by any other
methods than bravery and indepen
dence is put down as a scoundrel and
a deceiver and totally unworthy of
owning such a proud title as a Uni
ted States citizen.
Perhaps you are right, Mr. Demo
crat, in declaring that the silver is
sue is not dead, but the party that
advocates it is not meeting with very
much success at the polls these days.
The civil war issue in some localities
is not dead yet, but such localities
are themselves dead. Any party or
locality that will stick to a dead is
sue will sooner or later find itself in
a dying condition from that very
fact, so Democracy had better take
warning.
THE NORTH SHOULD ACT.
Let a bill reducing congressional
lepresentation from the South be
one of the first acts congress takes
up and passes when it convenes in
December. At present Mississippi,
Louisinana, South Carolina and
North Carolina have legally disfran
chised half of their voters within its
borders who bears the brand of Cain,
li half the voters of those states arc
not permitted to vote, then it is
wholly unfair for those states to get
representation in congress for a
numerical vote which they them
selves declare they have not got. No
Northern .Republican in congress
will be true to his country, true to
his cause or true to himself, if ne
does not stand up and vote to reduce
the congressional representation
from the Southern states at least
one-half of what it now- is.
We believe that Northern state
conventions would do the wise and
proper tiling to pass resolutions in
structing their congressional nomi
nees to work and vote for such a
measure. Tin; disfranchisement laws
in the South are aimed and directed
against tho. Negro voters and by no
j>)t»ai»t3 Hgtun.-r, the illiterate voters.
The Xegro in the South will never
get intelligent enough to vote from
a Democratic standpoint, though the
wisdom of So]onion himself be given
to each and every one of them, and
the Caucasians will never get tao ig
norant to vote, though a great major
ity of them so lapse into illiteracy
that they cannot mark their own bal
lets. Now, since the Xegro can ex
pect to gain nothing by having this
matter of cutting down the base of
representation from the South long
er deferred, he should ask his Repub
lican friends at the North to strike a
body blow at the monster that is re
sponsible for the condition and the
laws which have taken from him his
constitutional rights.
Neither Mississippi nor Alabama
casts as many votes as does* the state
of Washington, and yet each of those
states has nine members in congress
—two senators and seven members
of the lower house—Avhile Washing
ton has but four members of con
ig:ess—two senators and two lower
house meml>ers. As in Washington,
so in every other Northern state, it
requiring twice the number of voter
un the North to get a congressman
as in the South. Statesmen from the
North have been hoping againsi
hope that the voters one and all
would get a fair shake at the ballot
box down there, but they can but see
the futility of such a hope, as South
ern states go bravely on disfranchis
ing Negro voters. There must be a
remedy for all this. There is a rem
edy for such public high-handedness,
and the remedy is to reduce the num
ber of congressmen from the section
that disfranchises voters for no other
reason than to reduce them to a form
of moderate slavery. If the Negro is
to be partially disfranchised then so
long as he remains in the South let
him be wholly without representa
tion. "No taxation without repre
sentation," is a fundamental prin
ciple of this great government, and
when the South demands represen
tation for men whom She declares
are not men in her state govern
ments, then it wants to tax the
North without giving the North rep
resentation. Just, why the Negro
opposes such a measure is to us a
quandry, and we trust he will flood
the coming congress with petitions
from every section of the United
States, asking that this matter of
cutting down the representation in
congress from the South be not de
ferred another session longer, but be

WAX IN CHINA.
Now that most of the Western na
tionalities have declared, war against
the Chinese empire international em
broglios promise to follow thick and
fast, and if all of the Western, na
tionalities- are not scrapping among
themselves over broken bits of China,
that is, as to its partition between
them, before another twelve months
have passed, then it will be quite a
surprise. It is very evident that it
will not take the allied forces very
long, when once they get down to
business, to whip the Chinese into
submission. Then will come the
question of damages to the respec
tive nations. China will be unable
to pay any 01 them, hence she will
have to give up territorial posses
sions, and over this the great nations
seem destined to wrangle and war.
From Asia the star of empire has
steadily took its course westward
until it has gone so far west that it
is now taking its course eastward.
The Chinese empire, around which
a stone wall has so long shut all "for
eign devils" out, speaking from a
Chinese standpoint, is almost a
thing of the past. It is to be the
battle ground over which Western
civilization promises to war for van
tage and supremacy. For years all
Europe has had longing eyes fixed
on the Chinese empire, keeping a
strict, lookout for a pretext to break
over its walls, and now that the Chi
nese themselves have given them the
opportunity the Chinese can rest as
sured that Europe will take every
advantage of the opportunity. It
may be all right for our latter-day
civilization to protect missionaries in
China, but it seems to us a waste of
energy for the respective Western
nationalities to exhaust themselves
in Mar for Chinese territory. That
country has inhabitants quite suffi
cient at present to occupy every foot
of land there, and the only real good
coming from a general war would be
commercial advantage, which could
be accomplished by international di
plomacy as well as by international
war.
