Theodore Roosevelt, who has been parad
ing his love for humanity from the Atlantic
to the Pacific and from Maine to Mexico,
had an opportunity last Monday to choose
between humanity and self-aggrandizement
and the latter got his unqualified support.
Right stood no show against the prospects of
getting votes for Theodore Roosevelt.
Putting the president of Hayti down and
out by explosion is a less expensive route
than by revolution, and far more effective.
Taft and Sherman, Wilson and Marshall,
Roosevelt and Johnson are the big presi

Evidently hidden hands got in some
splendid taps on Lake Tape.
In selling De Larms five million dollar
projects for $12,000 the court went into the

Chickens about the late maneuver grounds
must have been of very vicious breeds the

Seattle has a water supply for four mil
lion citizens, which may not be a fact for
a million years, and there is probably no
further use for worry as to what Seattle
will do for water.
It was doubtless the water that caused
the attorneys to speed in Rainier park.

In spite of the Bull Moose convention the
Darrow trial held its own for sensations.
Before turning over the $50*000 jack-pot
for the defense of Becker the New York
police should read up on the McNamaha trial
and subsequently the Darrow trial.
Forget the stadium agitation, as Seattle
can get along very well without it.
If it be true that New York's notorious
"gunmen" are in Seattle, they probably
brought money enough with them to do busi

others, and coming as it does from a country
that has monthly revolutions, it leads one to

adopted by the political outs.
A. E. Fuller, who is seeking the Repub

on his card, "I am not supporting the Re

no kind of support for that or any other
kind of public office, and if he should, and
be elected to an office he would prove the
proverbial bull in a china shop. From his
looks and his conversation A. E. Fuller
has no more fitness for the office of county
engineer thtm a wad bull moose.
Bill Wray evidently did not finish up the
work of the collecting agencies in the last
legislature and he wants to go back to
trade his vote off for everything that comes
up to get votes for the collecting agencies'
cinch bills. Bill ought to be a Bull Moose

J. M. Gephart, who thought he heard the
hum of the Congressional bee, filed for the
Democratic nomination for the first district,
but he repented of his rash act in two short
weeks and withdrew from the contest. It

campaign for the salary in it, and Jim is

for state offices is recorded. There are any

The strength of the Republican guberna
torial aspirants in the opinion of the writer
is as follows: Coy. M. E. Hay, John C.
Lawrence, Bob Hodge, Orville Billings, and
Otto A. Case. The above applies: to first
choice votes, but on second choice, the line
up will be John C. Lawrence, Robert Hodge,
Orville Billings, Myron E. Hay and Otto
A. Case. The fight for the Republican gub
ernatorial nomination will be between Hay
and Lawrence, with both Billings and
Hodge making the leading brace cast
glances at them, while they fight for the
goal. If Paulhamus files at the last mo
ment as a Republican he will only weaken
