Cayton's Weekly, after carefully consid
ering the county assessr situation, has
reached the conclusion that of those seeking
11k> office Hugo Kelly should be supported
and it makes Iliis recommendation despite
the fact that the editor hereof and Kelly
have little or no use for each other. We do
not believe Hull will give to the taxpayers
;i fair administration and if Kelly is not
nominated, Hull will be. In our opinion
the a Hairs of the assessor's office are in a
topsy tnrvy condition and in the interest of
the taxpayers should have other than a
<mhirt house ring man to look them over.

The ticket as marked above is cheerfully
recommended to you and each of you for
your suffrage at the polls next Tuesday,
September 10, by the editor of Cayton'.s
The march to Berlin goes bravely on and
while the Allies find it difficult to keep in
shooting range of the fleeing Bodies, yet
they keep near enough to capture a few
thousand every day. Billy Kaiser has seen
his best days and from now on his bigest
fighting will be in getting out of the way.
House building is the order of the day and
the day and the thing may be over done
unless the warning of James A. Moore is
heeded and a mammoetaoishrdlumfwypetao
lished near Seattle to give employment to
those now employed in the shipyards after
the Avar is al over.
It's barely possible that the reason the
papers misquote Clarence Reames is because
the editors and reporters have too high a
regard for Mother English to quote him
correctly. Mutilated English always looks
bad in print.
Bonner, in discussing the Camp Lewis sit
uation says, "I am of the opinion there is
a dead dog up the branch," which is taken
to mean somebody is profiteering at the gen
eral expense of the colored people.
Sunday and Labor Day were strenuous
ones for Kaiser Bill for he neither had time
to receive prayers for "me and Gott" nor
to listen to the labor day orators.
Owing to his touchousness on the lynch
ing question, we have our suspicions that
Clarence Reames is a Democrat.
It's a case of "run sheep, run," with the
Germans just now, for the buggar man will
catch you if you don't.
We do not believe Mooney innocent, but
we do not believe he should hang.
