falshood Recoils on the falsifier
"If there is one thing more certain
than any other, it is that President Taft
is not dominated by the so-called po
litical bosses. The truth is that he
refused to be dominated by the great
est of modern bosses, Theodore Roose
velt. If President Taft had granted all
the favors which Roosevelt asked, if he
had appointed to office all the persons
whom Mr. Roosevelt recommended,
and if he had been, in short, Mr. Roose
velt's pliant tool, he would not today
find himself opposed for the presidency
by his predecessor." —Index News.
The foolish editor who penned the
above probably does not know that
even his political allies laugh at him
for his blunder, and deprecate un
truthful statements, because they do
more harm than good. It is so well
known by all those who know B from
bull's foot that Roosevelt never made
one single request of Mr. Taft, nor
even a suggestion about any appoint
ment, or any single solitary thing what
soever about the affairs of government
previous to his election or any time
thereafter, that the poor fellow who now
makes a charge at variance with the
well known fact is well laughed at for
his pains, and ought to go out behind
the woodshed and kick himself for al
lowing his zeal to run away with his
judgment. .";. ■-■■'■!-■■•■ ; :
The Governor's Campaign Expenses
The Wenatchee World, along with
many other newspapers in the state
are just now trying to minimize
the effect ol Governor Hay's enormous
primary campaign expenses by saying
that a wealthy man like Mr. Hay had
a right to spend a large sum in secur
ing his nomination without subjecting
himself to adverse criticism. Quite
naturally all those who favor Mr. Hay's
election are expected to rally to his
defense, but the World's excuse will
not satisfy the voters. Governor Hay
admitted spending over $13,000 in his
primary campaign, and we give him
credit for enough prudence not to
overstate the amount. Very few men
in the slate could afford to spend so
large a sum to be nominated for gov
ernor, and no honest, patriotic citizen
would deem it prudent. It is a plain,
simple statement to say that so much
money cannot, and ought not, to be
spent in a legitimate quest of the nomi
nation for governor in the state of Wash
ington, which few men will have the
hardihood to deny. Mr. Hay's meth
ods are part of the invisible govern
ment's methods. Part of that $13,000
went to placate and silence opposition
and part of it supplied the enthusiasm
for supporters, among which are news
The law compelling men to disclose
under oath the amount of money spent
in a campaign is an excellent one and
should be rigidly enforced. Mr. Hay's
campaign expenses cost him at least
ten thousand votes. It ought to de
feat him, and will if the voters take
the right view of it.
Invisible Government Will End in Rev
The invisible government, which is
being dragged into the limelight by
the committee investigating campaign
contributions that rich corporations
have in ths past made to both the
democratic and republican parties, is a
dangerous foe to free government.
When Mr. Archbold, of the Standard
Oil Company gave the republican com
mittee some 1200,000 and then asked
republican United States Senator Pen
rose to use his influence to have cer
tain men appointed to the federal
bench, the hand of the invisible gov
ernment is plainly seen. The hand
of the invisible government is very
evident in the transactions of Federal
Judge Archbold who sold his high
office for an interest in a coal bank.
The invisible government was plainly
seen right here in Washington a few
years ago when Supreme Court Judge
Judge Milo Root sold his decisions to
the Great Northern railway.
The invisible government is the
most dangerous enemy to a free peo
ple. Dangerous because it saps the
very life blood of popular government
—the peoples faith in the purity, the
integrity of government and the equal
ity of all men before the law, When
the time comes, and we pray that it
may never come, that a majority of the
people have not faith in its purity and
integrity, and the equality of all men
before its laws, revolution is not far off.
The mendacious newspapers repre
senting the invisible government have
been busy ever since Col. Roosevelt
passed thru the state three weeks ago
circulating the report that he was so
drunk both at Seattle and Spokane that
he had to be held upon the platform.
So notoriously untruthful are these re
ports that the press friendly to the
Colonel have declined to dignify them
by paying the slightest heed, or deny
We, here, in America, hold in our
hands the hope of the world, the fate
of the coming year, and shame and
disgrace will be ours if in our eyes the
light of high resolve is dimned, if we
trail in the dust the golden hopes of
men —Theodore Roosevelt, Carnegie
Hall, speech, March 30, 1912.

LAST TUESDAY NIGHT
City Treasurer Reports $1231 in Cash
on Hand—Police Justice to Be
Put on Salary
All the members of the council were
present last Tuesday evening except
The bill of magistrate Grant for
$127.75 was the first matter to come
up for consideration. Mr. Grant was
on hand and explained that the dollar
fines were assessed because the jail
was full and two of the parties in the
raid on the Lilly hotel when seven
were arrested, two being women, and
no way of taking care of them he as
sessed a small fine which was paid.
The council finally decided to pay the
bill, but instructed the city attorney to
draw an ordinance putting the police
magistrate on a salary.
A communication was read from
Forest Supervisor Sylvester in regard to
a right of way thru the forest reserve
for the city's water supply pipe line
from the Icicle river. He said if the
city would have its engineer make a
blue print map showing the route the
line would take thru the reserve he
would take up the matter of securing
the right of way with the department,
and said part of the line would run
thru the lands of the Northern Pacific
railway, from whom right of way would
haye to be obtained.
The bond of Messrs. Seaman &
Quigg, to whom was awarded the con
tract for building the municipal water
system was read and approved.
Councilman Robertson for the com
mittee appointed at the last meeting
to see Mr. Sampson about the bill for
connecting the city waste water pipe
with the sewer of the Leavenworth
Sewer Co. reported that the committee
had reached an understanding with
Mr. Sampson whereby the city could
make connection for $50 and have
that sum apply to the purchase money
in the event the city decided to buy
the sewer. The appropriation was
made with the proviso that Mr. Samp
son file a sworn claim for the $50.
The matter of purchasing wood for
the jail was referred to the police, fire
and water committee with power to act.
J. W. Corcoran was granted permis
sion to build a shed over a stairway
adjoining his building on Commercial
The matter of securing from former
city engineer Brown certain property
belonging to the city was discussed
and it developed that he left in such a
hurry that he failed to turn over to the
city supplies he had in his possession
but wrote to the clerk that he would
find them in charge of Mr. Granz. The
clerk said he had not been able to
find the city's property.
Property owners on Cascade street
petitioned the council to have street
improvements made and the attorney
was instructed to draw up resolution
providing for same.
City Treasurer Koerner submitted a
report showing a cash balance on hand
of $1231.99 on the 24th day of Sep
tember. Following is the report in

Debs Sees Progressive Wave
"The Progressive sentiment is very
piononnced all over the western and
southern states, and there is no doubt
that, so far as Roosevelt and Taft are
concerned, the latter is entirely out of
the race," said Eugene V. Debs, So
cialist candidate for president, to-day.
"The old Texas bourbon democ
racy, founded on prejudice, and the |
republican party, bossed by office hold
ers, are facing the hardest struggle in
their history. The Progressives in the
south are strong. The republican
party there is a shell, and large inroads
have been made in the democratic;
party. The Progressive sentiment is I
bound to tell at this election, and the I

be doomed "
EMU FRANK PUCE TO BE
TURNED INTO DAIRY RANCH
Cedergreen Bros., of Snohomish, have
Taken Lease—Sixty Dairy Cows on

said he had rented his place in the

would at once put from fifty to
sixty first class dairy cows on the
place and the product would be sold
here and in Wenatchee. They
have a large dairy ranch near Monroe
from which the stock will in part be
transferred. The Cedergreen Bros,
have been supplying Wenatchee with
milk for the past six months from their
Snohomish ranch but by establishing a
