Anarchist Altgeld seems to be
troubled with the same kind of
snakes that wiggled in his boots four
Wabbling Waburton wobbled into
the district convention, and like his
Walla Walla master, proceeded to
buy his nomination for state senator.
Jealousy among the "allied forces"
in China is causing a good deal more
delay than the opposition of the
It was Paul of Seattle instead of
Paul of Tarsus that was the center
of attraction during the sittings of
the last Republican state convention.
Now that "Weary Willie" has been
told that he was nominated for presi
dent by the Kansas City convention,
perhaps he will give the country a
much-needed rest from his lip.
Colorado threatens to break away
from the financial follies of Bryan,
and if she does she will do just what
every other Western state has done
and will do.
Bryan's nomination was so sudden
and unexpected that it almost took
him off his feet. So sudden that he
was unable for some time to say
whether he would accept it.
Senator Warburton got a renomi
nation for state senator, but accord
ing to the Tacoma Ledger he has an
awful Badcock to pull through the
polls as a legislative protege.
W. I\. Paulhamus may run things
in Tacoma, but he found himself a
bit handicapped trying to run things
in Seattle. Seattle ha* renegade pol

Street-and sidewalk improvement
in this city is so general that it must
impress the stranger visiting herein
that it is the most thriving city in
the country at present.
Booker Washngton may have got
ten a bit personal, as suggests the
Argus, of this city, in saying one of
the great needs of the Negroes of the
South was "'more tooth brushes and
bathtubs,'" but if Mr. Washington
should ever get a whiff of the editor
of the Argus, he would not be long
concluding that there are others.
In case you are in need of some
thing to read that is actually nothing
to read, it is suggested that you pro
cure a copy of the Mail-Herald, of
this city. It has more "isms" to the
square inch in it than any other
paper ever before published in the
Jim McElroy held a splendid hand
last Saturda} r, and under ordinary
circumstances would have corralled
the pot, but Ronald called him with
a "country flush," and Jim found
that he was not in it for a minute.
"Could have had the place, hands
down, but had to go East on busi
ness." All of which is very true, but
there are some things that one can
get that it is not advisable for them
to have, and this is one of them.
The Southerners of this country
claim no parental relationship to the
Chinese Boxers, but they want the
Boxers to distinctly understand they
have no edge on them when it comes
to fiendish barbarism in outraging a
weaker people located in their midst.
Washington state boasts of hav
ing the largest tunnel in the world,
through which the Great Northern
will soon be daily running trains. It
is rather remarkable that the second
in size is also in this state, and the
Northern Pacific already runs trains
"But the 'sack' ie a mighty argu
ment in latter day Republican poli
tics," snarls the Vancouver Register
—Democrat. Quite a potent power,
we admit, and if we are not mistaken
Demo-Pops deal quite extensively
with "sack politics," as well. To
this Br^er Daniels is a swift witness,
having himself played about George
Turner's Le Roi sack.
Freddy Lysons is looking for a
job, and his partner, Tommy Humes,
is trying to figure out what he will
next fee a candidate for. He tried
hard to serve well the Ankeny-Foster
combination, but failed, and they
should see to it that he be given an
"The election will decide whether
we are to have a republic- under
Bryan or an empire under McKin
ley."—Register—Democrat. No; it
#31 decide whether the present good
limes brought about by McKinley
ism are to be eontinued,or are to give
way to Bryanism, thereby causing
financial ruin and general bank
ruptcy throughout this fair and
prosperous land of ours.
Among the latest periodicals com
ing to our exchange tables is the Ja
pan Tribune, which is published in
San Francisco. It is neatly and
ncely gotten up and well edited.
According to its own headline, "The
Japan Tribune is the only paper
published in English and devoted to
the reciprocal interests of the Ja
panese and Americans/ Your field
is broad, broher, and if you will suc
ceed you can.
Speaking about China, a statisti
cian has this to say: "The area of
China is 4,218,401 English square
miles. Of this territory only 1,336,
--841 miles belong to China proper,
which contains the bulk of the popu
lation, having 386,000,000 inhabi
tants, out of a total population of
We agree with the Auburn Argus
in saying "King county can get
along without Senator Wilson," and
so can it get along without Editor
Rankin or many others who are al
ready in King county, it, however,
does seem to us that, if Mr. Wilson
desires to leave Spdkane and move
to Seattle, it is his business, and not
that of any other man. This is a
free country, and Mr. Wilson or any
one else has the right to move to
whatever county he or they so de
ssfe. But should Mr. Wilson move
to Seattle he would be coming to a
place where he pays more taxes in a
minute than the editor of the Au
burn Argus pays in five years. Under
such conditions the Argus man has a
perfect right to enter his protest
against John L. Wilson moving to
It is very gratifying to a large ma
jority of the Republicans of this
county to have W. 11. Morris named
as chairman of the county central
committee. In the interest of per
fect harmony the Piper-Humes com
bination being in the majority in the
committee demanded that I. B.
Knickerbocker be named as the
chairman and that the committee
then named a vice chairman to con
duct the campaign. This was unani
mously agreed to and the election of
Knickerbocker and Morris passed off
without a dissenting vote. No man
in the county is better fitted to act
as chairman of the committee than
Morris and he will come pretty near
landing his man. F. G. Whitaker
was selected as secretary and A. J.
Goddard as treasurer of the commit
tee. Both are splendid gentlemen
and will be strong allies in Mr. Mor
ris' aggressive campaign.
1 Say, Mr. Democrat, are you a
Democrat or are you a Pop? The
Pops say you are a Pop, and, if you
say that you are not a Pop, then you
can not play in their back yard.
Say, Mr. Whiskers, are you a Pop
or a Bourbon Democrat? The
Democrats say you are a Democrat,
and of the old school—a knight of
the Golden Circle, a lynching Demov
crat, a Southern fire-eater and a gov
ernment disrupter in general, and if
you deny being all of those things,
then you can not play in Democrat's
back yard. Now, boys, find out from
each other what the other fellow is
and report the same for publication

It begins to look as though Sena
tor George Turner has decided to
either rule the Fusion party in this
state or ruin it. When he was a
Republican he made efforts to rule or
ruin the Republican party, and fail
ing to rule it, he, for a second and a
half, comparatively speaking, suc
ceeded in ruining it; but it was but
temporary, for it soon recovered
from his desertion, and will turn
him down harder than ever before.
