Judge Morris was shaking hands with the
boys at First and Cherry a few days ago.

A young fellow who lead a 16-year-old girl
astray was given a sentence of five years in
the pen by Judge Tallman. The sentence
gives excellent satisfaction.
George Stevenson, the well known political
corruptor, was in Seattle this week and made
a pretense of wanting to bet on Turner's
election, but he found so many takers that
he concluded to not bet any and so if he
had any money he wisely kept it in his
Hon. John L. Wilson returned last Wednes
day evening from the East and feels abso
lutely certain that Roosevelt will carry every
state in the North. The rural districts, he
says, are enthusiastic for him and he seems
to be even more popular with the masses
than was McKinley.
A big burly policeman, while on his beat,
on Second avenue, was observed walking
from the inside of the sidewalk to the out
side for the purpose of expectorating onto
the street one morning the first of the week.
He had evidently heard of the ordinance pro
hibiting spitting on the sidewalk and was
afraid of being arrested.
In our opinion it will be a useless waste
of money to build a city jail without at the
same time building a City Hall. It is quite
true that the city is sadly in need of a jail,
but she does not need the jail one-half so
badly as she does the City Hall. There is
altogether too much quibbling on this mat
ter for the good of the community and we
hope the city council will take definite steps
in the immediate future looking forward to
the putting the City Hall proposition before
Dr. J. J. Smith, state senator from the
Thirty-first senatorial district, spent a few
hours in the city last Thursday. The coun
try is all right for the Republican ticket in
general and for Lou Smith in particular.
The south district will give Smith a larger
vote than it will Roosevelt, owing to the
fact that so many of the Democrats of that
section will vote for him. You folk in the
city may be troubled with Boxers, but the
country and especially the south district
knows no such a thing as a Boxer in Repub
Two men, each upwards of fifty, were pas
sengers on a University car coming to the
city a few days ago. They were seated fac
ing each other at the rear end of the car.
The one on the port side pointed his finger
at the man facing him—two of his trouser
buttons were unfastened. He clapped both

quiet, yet speedy manner, soon had himself
presentable. With a grateful expression on
his countenance, he looked across at the man
so kindly informed him of his condition for
the purpose of thanking him, when he re

The Seattle Electric Company has ordered
another big cut in its lighting rate and its
customers in the future are to have lights for
just half what they have been paying for
them. Before the city began to get ready
to do lighting business the electric company
maintained that it was impossible for it to
furnish its customers with cheaper light only
at a great loss to the company. How strange
the company should now see its way clear
to cut its rate half and lose so much money,
when it could have cut its rate a quarter
and not lost so much all at once. This is
done, dear reader, for the sole purpose of
deterring the city from completing its plant.
The city's lighting plant should be pushed
along and when it has furaished all the nec
essary "juice" for lighting the streets it
should tlien furnish light for private resi
dences and if by increasing the capacity of
the plant sufficient "juice" can be deliv
ered in the city to light every house in the
corporation that should also be done. The
electric company has been robbing its cus
tomers for lo these many months and now,
when there are prospects of a competitor,
it jumps in and cuts its former rates in
half. It seems to be the policy of the com
pany to do nothing until forced to do so by
bona fide competition. From the actions of
the S. E. C. in reducing its rate in order to
cripple the city plant even before it is com
pleted, it is quite evident that the city plant
will be able to cut the present rate of that
company in half before it will have been
running a year. If by expending $300,000
on the part of the city the residents can get
light for one-fourth what they are now pay
ing for them it's a good business proposition
to vote the necessary money for the enlarge
