Hey. Mr. Durand
Mr. Hunt, after "checking up"
and "recounting" Tacoma, stood
pat on the emasculated census of
Tacoma as given out by Director
Durand and put the figures at
83,000.
Now comes Postmaster Frank

he has had the mall carriers
count the people to whom they
delivered mail in a week and they
have delivered to 100,712.
These 100,712 persons received

The Tacoma Times
HAS MA YOR BROKEN
FAITH WITH PEOPLE?
Spirit of the Recall Centers on Whether
Man has been True to Public Trust
Registration Ib over and the mayoralty campaign is on.
A. V. Fawcett, W. W. Seymour and A. C. Barth are candidates.
It is a recall election and the issue is: Has Mayor Fawcett
maclo good?
A recall election differs from a general election. In the latter
no odium attaches to defeat but a recall Is repudiation. It aays 'n
effect that the official has been untrue to his trust, disloyal to the
people and unworthy to serve out his term
THE RECAU, SHOULD BE I'SED FREELY WHEN OC
CASION DEMANDS, BUT WITH CAUTION. THE PEOPLE
SHOULD HE VERY CERTAIN THE OFFICIAL HAS BEEN UN
TRI'E BEFORE THEY REPUDIATE HIM ELSE PUBLIC OF
FICIALS WILL BE INTIMIDATED AND BROWBEATEN INTO
SUBMISSION TO EVERY CROOKED CAME THAT SPECIAL IN
TERESTS MAY DESIRE TO WORK. IF THESE INTKMBBTS DIS
COVER THEY CAN EMPLOY THE RECALL TO PURPOSES
THAT ARE NOT BASED UPON PUBLIC GOOD.
A PEOPLE'S MAX.
The question therefore for the people of Tacoma to ask Is
■whether Mayor Fawcott has stood for the best Interests of the peo
ple. If he has he should be sent back by an overwhelming vote;
if he has not he should be turned down hard — providing there Is a
candidate against him who does represent the public good.
Fawcett was elected on the general sentiment of his reputa
tion as a fighter against the aggressions of the special interests.
The five cent fare war was on and the people wanted a mayor who
would not bow the knee to corporate greed.
Has Mayor Fawcett bowed?
When the street car company held up the cars and sought to
bluff the Fern Hill people into submission what did he do? He
got out of bed and was six miles from town at 6 o'clock In the
morning with two policemen. He compelled the company to run
those cars to the city.
OPPOAKD BY ItOVS.
After that, Commissioner Hoys prevented him from getting any
further police help, but the spirit shown by the mayor had its effect
on the company and the rich Stone-Webster corporation was grad
ually forced to five cent fare.
The company was fighting in the courts and sparring for time.
Mayor Fawcett guve notice that unless they took that case to the
supreme court before noon he would take action to bring thorn to
book and he forced them to push the suit to an early conclusion.
With a weak-knee<l mayor that case might have been hung up and
delayed in the courts for months and even years before a decision
was reached.
The city wanted another street up the hill and Mayor Fawcett
introduced and pushed through a resolution to tear up the tracks on
Cliff avenue and he saw that it wa« done.
The people complained of poor service and" he introduced an
ordinance to stop straphanging. Any citizen who has a complaint
now can get action —and more cars—as was proved when L. A.
Stone did prosecute in the courts and brought additional service on
the South Tacoma line in 24 hours.
The most exacting will hardly make the assertion that Mayor
Fawcett has not made good on the -street car issue, which was
really the Issue on which he was elected.
FAWCHTT KXTU.WAGANT?
When he discovered that for years the city had been Retting
only 2 per cent on the freight receipts of the street car company
when the franchise permitted the city to charge B per cent he at
once introduced and had passed an ordinance for 5 per cent and the
city is getting the increased revenues now.
He did the same thing on the A. D. T. messetigrr and alarm
franchise.
It is charged Mayor Fawcett has been extravagant. Is It true?
The fact is that with his advent into oifice he immediately cut
down the..expenditures in his department. He fought 1o the blKer
end the rest of the commission when they wanted to boost salaries
and even refused to put the motion. Roys took his place, put the
motion and the salary boost was voted through over his head.
The mayor abolished the city chemist which was a useless ex
travagance and thereby saved $1,800 a year in salary and about
$3,000 In expenses. He cut the expenses in the health department
under him by reducing salaries; he abolished one man in the
plumbing inspector's office and saved his salary and the record for
the year shows he ran his departments at much less cost than
they were run before. The mayor is entitled to n. clerk but he has
been doing the work himself and saving the salary for the people.
He gets to the office at 7:30 every morning and is there all day.
He has put in more time in his office in one year than any mayor
the city ever had ever put in in his whole term.
The charge of extravagance will not hold against the mayor.
But if he kept faith on the street car light and was economical
why the recall? He must have done something
He did.
Early in his administration Mayor Pawcett took up the crying
need of this city for relief from tne waterfront monopoly
stnsiDizKO piircss.
Then came the campaign when the special Interests and the
subsidized press tried to deceive the people. But the public stood
by the mayor. It endorsed his plan and today sees the only munic
ipal dock on the Pacific coast, in Tacoma.
But that fight arrayed the corporation interests and the sub
sidized press against the mayor in solid array. They bided their
time to get his scalp.
But the mayor did more.
He had tackled the special waterfront monopoly and whipped
it. Next he tackled the saloon interests. He introduced, fought
through the council and finally to success before the people the
anti-treatlng law.
The people endorsed it by 3,000 majority Tuesday
ItOVAL AItCH REOjUX.
And It was the saloon <l>.it started the- recall on Mayor Fawcett.
When they suw he meant business with that anti-treat law
they not busy. The Hoyal Arch easily found men to do its bidding
and the recall was started. Those petitions for the recall of the.
mayor were Kotten up and assembled in the office of John Leo, an
attorney for the liquor dealers.
There was crooked work to make the Fawcett petitions good.
Bert Campbell, now in Jail for hi s crookedness, was in the city
clerk's office, and when he found discrepancies that in
validated names he refused to invalidate them but sought out the
parties and had them come in and fix them up. But Mayor Faw
cett waived all protest even at that and said he wanted the people
to vote on him.
Now the question is, will they repudiate him?
It means a victory for the special interests and the subsidized
prees that fought him on the municipal dock. It means a victory
for the Royal Arch that brought the recall against him if he goes
down.
- - FOUGHT POWER TRUST. 'V j
Mayor Fawcett has stood for some other things for which the
people have voted. For years this city fought to escape the clutches
of the Stone-Webster power trust. The corporate interests, the
clamorers for special privilege, the subsidized press fought the peo
ple at every turn, but they finally got a clear cut issue and voted
to build the Nisqually power plant. ' : -
That did not end the battle. Ever since, the power trust has
fought to head off this great enterprise which will give the people
the profits in the power business in Tacoma rather than the Bos
ton syndicate. • -- - -■■ - - •....-'
For a year this power trust has been fighting to "prey-nt the
financing of the proposition. They did defeat one set of contractor*
who took the first contract and ■ forced them - out: of .- the Job. But
others took it up with the co-ope ration of the mayor and commis
sion and they are pushing it on. There has been ', treason to ' Ta
coma's interests at home and letters'have been written to the final- 1

OUTBURSTS OF EVERETT TRUE
News item— Previous to the Ant I-Treatlnir election Mr. Kverett True
was lifted bodily from tho Times a nd placed on bis postern all over
town, Mr. True was represented ai. doing Ills usual knockout stunt.
Mayor Fawcett belli* the object of hls attack. Mr. True had not Intend
ed taking an active part In the anti- treat campaign as lit) thought the
people realized the situation mid would do as they saw fit. It will be
remembered that the use of Mr. True by those bitterly opposed to the
anti-treat ordinance whs somewhat of a boomerang. Kverett Is always

found effective when somebody tries to use him for selfish purposes
Bhr.ll the city continue on Ms present trend toward rule by the
people and ownership of the public utilities by the people, or shall
it turn back and return to the era of graft and extortion Incident
to private ownership.
There are two candidates In the field against Mayor Fawcett,
Mr. Harth and Mr. Seymour. Mr. Ilarth, it is conceded, has no
chance for election, and the battle Is between Mr. Seymour and tho
mayor.
- . Mr. Seymour Is rich. His resources are Invested in public ser

Honuiam tho ga 8 plant.at Chehalla and Centralia. the water plant

\ a Campaign # romlse are easily made, but it takes backbone
and it takes a firmly grounded conviction for the side of the people
to withstand the smooth machinations of special Interests when a
man gets into public office. * '
' Li Mayor Fawcett has withstood them—there la no experiment
a"bout him on the question; what Mr. Seymour MIGHT do is a mat
ter for speculation, with the evidence rather in favor of his stand-
In* with the interests rather than against them.
AXTI-TKKATING.
. The people have just enacted by the popular vote the anti
treating ordinance. -. ■
« Before the election Mr. Seymour stated he was opposed to the
ordinance.
Of course he says he will enforce the law—every official must
take oath to do that when he goesfn, .but the public has had plenty
of experience with public officials who said they would enforce
laws they were not personally in favor of. '-
The fact is that laws against which strong special interests
are arrayed must be backed by officials in sympathy ■with them to
get good results. This especially applies to laws on the saloon ques
tion as thousands of communities can bear witness.
The people voted nearly 9.000 strong for the anti-treating law
The present mayor Is being recalled solely because he introduced and
fought for this law. No voice of recall was ever breathed against
him until it was done by the Royal Arch after he had started this
movement. The only demand for recall that had been made by the
people, was. against Commissioner Roys for his absolute disregard of
the laws and his pandering to the special Interests
