Most of the local Republican poli
ticians, including the Pie-maker,
have been sojourning in the City of
Destiny this week, attending the
.-tale convention, and if you know
anything about state conventions, it
will not take much to convince you
that the most of us are unfit for work
the closing days of the week.
Senator Billie Mason, of Illinois,
is altogether too mouthy for his own
good. To the average Westerner he
is trying to blow hot and blow cold
at the same time. If Mason is going
to support McKinley he ouglit to
quit talking through his hat to Pop
papers, and if he is going to support
jjryan he should come out like a man
and say so. God hates a coward, and
the man that blows hot and cold on
political questions is a political cow
ard. But a few days ago The Times,
a Pop paper, published a long inter
view trom Senator Mason, which in
directly denounced the McKinley ad
ministration; a few days later the
Post-Intelligencer published an in
terview from Senator Mason declar
ing that he was hurrying homeward
to stump the state of Illinois for Mc
ivinley. Mason must like to see his
name in iiaming headlines," which ac
counts for him rushing into print on
first one side of the public question
and then on the other. Take a
stand, Biilie, and then stand as long
as the stand stands.
Perhaps some Seattle folk were
inclined to think that the Pie-maker
at tunes criticised too severely one
Thomas P. Fisk, of this city, sent
here by Levi Ankeny to run the Re
publican politics in the interest of
Ankeny's senatorial candidacy, if so,
the following from the Cowlitz Ad
vocate, from whence Mr. Fisk came,
may throw some light on the situa
The Hon. Thomas Polonius Fisk,
who from his obscurity as a "country
lawyer, ventured out upon a sea of
glory" as an Ankeny booster and was
carried by the tide mto some promi
nence as a politician, moved to Se
attle, and lias been laboring for
1J nines, now linds ilk* '"high-blown"
bladder has been pricked, and he is
likely to be left "naked before his
enemies." Alas for Thomas! Alas
for ail young men of modest talent
who would seek fame and-fortune in
It begins to look as though even
Seattle folk are waking up to their
sense of moral duty from a political
standpoint, and do not propose to
continue to elect men to office who
nave no other n'tness for the place
they seek than that they are able to
swing a certain tenderloin vote.
Men who cater to such a lot of vot
ing cattle should be let. severely
alone by the good citizens of any
city or community, for you can rest
assured that they never support any
man without first obtaining from
him a promise or a pledge that so far
as they are concerned such officers
of the law will do all in their power
to always be looking the other way
when a tenderloiner is trying to
escape the clutches of the law.
While it cannot be said that only ten
derloiners supported Mr. McEiroy,
yet it can be said that tenderloiners
almost unanimously supported him,
Mr. Ronald is something of a church
man and allies himself to that class
of citizens in preference to the ten
derloiners, and in the late primary
contest it was the moral element that
pulled him through. In other
words, it was not that the Democrats
loved McEiroy less or Ronald more,

but decency slapping indecency in
the face. It looks now as if the
Demo-Fusionists would nominate
Charley Voorhees, of Spokane, for
governor, and J.. T. Ronald, of Seat
tle, as one of tire congressmen.
From a Republican standpoint,
McElroy is the man that the Demo
crats should have indorsed, for he
would have been the easier of the
two to defeat at the polls, but Mr.
Ronald will have a hard enough time
to pull through, his morality back
ing to the contrary notwithstanding.
hen Mr. Ronald will have been
nominated, as he! will be, then his
former mayoralty record will : loom
up before him like Banquo's ghost,
and will haunt him during the entire
campaign. It will cost him a good
many votes all over the state, as well
as in Seattle, where his record as
mayor of Seattle is public property.
Then the fact that Mr. Ronald is a
Southern Democrat, who still be
lieves that the South should have
won in its contest with the North,
will also cost him many votes. • The
Pie-maker is of the opinion that it is
utterly wrong for Northern states to
elect men to congress whose former
homes were in the South and who
still believe in the political idiosyn
cracies of the South. Instead of cut
ting down the number of represen
tatives from the South the election
of such men as J. T. Ronald, how
ever good they may be on general
principles, but gives the South one
vote more in its endeavor to undo
the work which was done by the im
mortal Lincoln and his followers.
Speaking about the Democratic
primaries, a good story has come to
the Pie-maker, which is worth re
peating. It will be remembered that
.Lee Hart did the Piper-Humes com
bine quite a good turn in the munic
ipal primary election last spring,
which was to be reciprocated by the
Piper-Humes combine in the Demo
cratic contest in the summer. Well,
the combine did not do so, and here
hangs a tale. It seems that although
J. C. Whitlock is holding a position
under Mr. MeElroy, he threw his
strength to the Ronald forces. Now,
Mr. \\%itlock has quite a friend
among the Piper-Humes people, and
lie is none other than Tom Paine,
Ankeny's manager in this county.
Paine on the day of the Democratic
primaries delivered over to Whitlock,
so goes the story, all of the Republi
can primary precinct poll books,
showing those persons | voting" the
Republican tickets, and armed with
these the Ronald folk announced
that no one who voted in the Repub
lican primaries , the week before
would be permitted to vote in the
Democratic primaries on that occa
sion. The McElroy folk had no
books, while the Ronald folk were
able to say who should and who
should not vote. The sum and sub
stance of it all was that McEiroy was
skinned; all over the . city, and
skinned by his Republican friends.
When Piper, Fisk and Lysons heard
how their own guns had been turn
ed against their own friends, they
roared and swore like troopers, and
it took quite a bit of explaining to
square tilings with Lee Hart, but it
was finally done and all enjoyed a
hearty laugh. Paine "'had been
there before," for if reports be true,
he has many times before turned a
smooth political trick. It is now re
ported tnat Mr. Ankeny has dropped
Tom Paine from his King county
pay roll and that J. C. Whitlock will
lose his deputyship in McElroy's of
Rumor has it that Col. R. H. Bal
linger worked like a Dick nailer in
the Democratic primaries , for the
Ronald folk. The Pie-maker sees
nothing wrong in that for Col. Bal
linger or Col. Anyone else has a right
to work for whomsoever they want,
whether in a Republican, Demo
cratic or Populist primary, but it
does look strange to see such a rabid
Republican (?) as Col. Ballinger
working at a Democratic primary.
J. T. Ronald is a partner of Col. Bal
lingers son, which, of course, makes
them very close friends. -Now rumor
has it that a number of the Piper-
Humes Republicans, contemplate
knifing the Republican congressional
ticket, and especially Hon. F. C.
Cushman, and this they expect to
more effectually do by pushing the
"Seattle should have a congressman"
racket. Now, the Pie-maker would
like to know if that was the begin
ning of that political move. If it is,
good Republicans should rally all the
harder for the Republican nominees.
King county Republicans can not af
ford to have one of its state nomi
nees run behind the ticket in King
county, and they will not, mark
