DEFEATED RICH SENATOR
Wesley L. Jones, Hopubllcnn candldnto for
tho United States senate In tho stnto of Wash

election systom by long odds tho most pow

Jones Is a poor man, a man without weal
thy hackers or Influential champions. Ho has
been n member of congress from tho stnto at
largo for tho past ten yenrs, and hns not laid
aside any great amount of wealth out of his
salary that gocu with tho ofllce. When ho on-
lered tho campaign for tho United States son
atorshlp It was (o oppose the roelrctlon of Senator Levi Ankeny, ono of the
wealthiest men In tho northwest. Ankeny knows what It Is to spend money
In politics. Just how much ho had paid for tils flrst election to tho sennto in
180.1 Is not a mutter of record, but It Is said to have been In tho neighborhood
of 1100,000. He had spent ns much more In two previous campaigns In which
tho. goads wero not delivered by the legislature.
Tho contest seemed nnythlng but an oven one, nnd most unpromising so
far as pertained to the chances or Jones, who had no nvullabla nssota other
than a family nnd a record or honesty In tho lower houso at Washington.
It was the flrst trial or tho state-wide primary In Washington, nnd whoa
tho votes were counted It was round that the poor ninu had defeated tho multi
millionaire by n majority that left no room for question. And this, too, In thft
raco of tho fact that Ankeny was suppoited by somo of tho most Influential
newspapers In tho state, although notoriously unfit for tho position.
Mr. Jones Is 45 yenrB old, a native or Illinois, nnd n lawyer.
HALTED "DRY" MOVEMENT
GRAND VIZIER OF TURKEY
of the Wcll-Informcil of tho World has
always been for a simple, pleasant and
efficient liquid laxatlvo remedy of known
value; a laxative which physicians could
sanction for family uio becauso Its com
ponent parts aro known to them to bo
wholcsomo and truly beneficial In effect,
acceptable to tho system and gentle, yet
prompt, in action.
In supplying that demand with Its ex
cellent combination of Syrup of Figs and
Elixir of Senna, tho California Pig Syrup
Co. proceeds along ethical lines nnd relies
on tho merits of tho laxative for Its remark
That Is one of many reasons why
Byrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna is given
tho preference by tho Well-Informed.

The cold wnter sentiment from tho Ditto Grass

stump orator, declared for slato wldo prohibi
tion and announced himself as a candldata for
governor on that platform. Patterson, nsklng a renomluntlon ns governor, took
direct Issue on the question or prohibition, nnd engaged In n series or Joint
debates with his opponent, visiting all the Important communities. That de
bate turned out to bo ono or tho most glngorsomo stunts tho Tennessee Dem
ocracy had pulled off since civil war times. On numerous occasions fist fights
wore narrowly averted, on the platform ns well ns In tho nudlcuces.
Tho temperance coliortH promptly lined up with Carmack nnd Uov. Pat
tnrson wns made the target for somo hitter nttacks. Ho stood his ground,
however, nnd his own personnl popularity pulled him through. Tho primary
system is In voguo in Tennessee, nnd when tho votes wore counted, contrary
to expectation, Patterson was found to huvo n safe majority. Tho prohibition
wave had been cheeked, nnd the defeat practically killed It In the sonllu
