OFFICE—76B Commerce St.
As great an insult as was ever offered the thinking people of
Tacoma has been spread broadcast since the supporters of the Royal
Arch, suffered a terrific defeat at the hands of the people.
The effort to connect Mayor Fawcett with the Royal Arch Is
taken as a huge Joke on the street, but the deliberate effort to
make the public believe what they already know to be an untruth
foretells tbe certain defeat of Mr. Seymour. This sort of rot
coming from those who fought for the Royal Arch in the recent
election is proving a deadly boomerang.
Mr. Fawcett's recall petition was taken out by (he Royal Arch.
On ttae first page of the Times today is told how this petition was
carried to the office of an attorney who has been employed by the
liquor interests. Somewhere on the route petitions were mutilated
and forged to such an extent that the Roys ]>< titinns ure again on
the street to be filled by citizens.
The entire recall situation primarily revolved about Mr. Roys,
Whose open town methods reached the point of non-enduranca.
If no other proof could be adduced, the fact that the Fawcett
petitions were handled by a Royal Arch crowd aud the fact that an
effort was made to save his adversary, Mr. Roys, would be sufficient
public proof that the heavy liquor interests mean to have Mr. Faw
It appears Impossible that the women of Tacoma can be led
over to the Royal Arch in their first mayoralty ballot. Men and
women realize that the Times has given them facts beyond con
tradiction throughout the recall and antl-treating situation. Its
charge that the Royal Arch la after Mr. Fawcott has never been
disputed for a moment.
Her Folks and Her Pay
It is not uncommon for desperate fathers to steal bread for
their babies, but it is something new for a young woman to em
bezzle thousands of dollars for the satisfaction of seeing her aged
parents live out their days in luxurious comfort.
That is what Miss Maconiber, cashier of a large publishing
house In New York, confesses to having done. And while her dis
honesty is condemned, a good many people have been Impressed
by the quality of her filial devotion. -
However, that is not the point which has aroused discussion
In New York. The culprit says she stole from her employers be
cause her salary was Insufficient, and that $19 a week is not fair
pay for the work and responsibility involved in handling $500,000
a year. She says, moreover, that a man in. the same position would
have been paid more.
That's what they are talking about.
Her employer answers that "the salary doesn't seem dispro
portionate to the work, though it is true we should expect to pay
more to a man." He admits that women are as competent as men
and generally considered more likely to be honest. "But we pay
the market price/ he says. "Plenty of women would like the job
at the price or even less."
Perhaps, but the gentleman's remarks strike us as "small po
tatoes, and mighty few in a hill."
I A Revival that Would Revive
The Gospel Mission at St. Louis recently published this ad
"Men Wanted—Fifty at 3150 Easton aye. at 8 p. m. Come
ready to work."
They came —800 strong—and they were ready to work. They
found —what? A chance to attend a gospel revival!
And they were pretty mad, too. It took the police to keep
things quiet and so far as known not a single convert was made.
But suppose a "gospel revival" did include a revival of work
for idle hands and bread for empty stomachs! Wouldn't it sweep
the world, though!
