BIG SLUSH FM FOR MILLS?
WE CAN ALL
GET RICH
Nf
niwisrs PLOTZ SHOWS HOW
$10 A WEEK MAN CAN
SHOW UP WORTH 910,000.
"I 'understand you are worth
"between $20,000 and $30,000 a
year?" It was our old college
chum Gasozus Plotz, the Sixth
avenue philosopher, who flashed
this on the unsuspecting city edi
tor today.
*5 "Lock him up, guards, he's rav
ing again," said the 0.8.
. "Nope, straight goods; I've fig
ured lt all out. I've solved the
problem of getting rich. I can
show you how a $10 a week clerk
Is worth $10,000 a year. This
getting rich business is a cinch by
.my system." - -
The city editor tried to change
the subject but Gesozus plunged
on. .
~'- Explains His System. '' .
- "I don't know how much you're
Setting, but for the sake of argu
ment, we'll Bay counting in vaca
tions and sickness and losing your
Job maybe"—the city editor tried
to protest"we'll say your salary
averages between $20 and $30 a
.week.
• "We'll be conservative and call
It $20. That's a little over $1,000
a year. Now figure it like the
rich man does. Capitalize your
earnings.
"At five .per cent It would take
$20,000 to earn $1,000 a year in
dividends. Call yourself the
News Butchering Co., Ltd., Inc.,
for instance, capitalized at $20,
--000. The company is earning
five percent on its Investment.
That figures out $1,000 a year, or
$20 a week. See the point?
$18 a. Fortune.
"That 'Center Aisle to the
Bight' young fellow who wrote ln
to the Times is worth $18,000. * A
five-dollar a week shop girl Is
worth $5,000."
"Your dope sounds .good to
me," grinned the city editor. "I
guess I'll go out and pick out my
automobile. Anybody worth $20,
--003 or $30,000 can afford an
automobile, surely."
"Don't do It," said Gesoz-us. "I
know my figures are right, but
dont do it."

CLARK DODGES ON RECALL i
AND PROGRESSIVE QUESTIONS I
BY GILSON GARDNER. i
, i WASHINGTON, D. C, March 30.Speaker Champ Clark is the 1
only one of the prominently .mentioned presidential candidates In ]
either party who line failed to declare himself ou tho recall—espe
cially tlie recall of judges. .- . .... .
•*•-As far back as January, 1911, I tried to secure from Speaker ,
Clark a statement of his position. Among other questions submitted <
to him was the following: '. ■ •
"'■• " * Do you believe in the initiative, the referendum, the
recall, corrupt practices acts, the Oregon plan of choosing
senatorial candidates, the presidential preference primary?
Tis answer was as follows: ; " . . - '
I am in favor of primary elections and of the elec- '
tion of United States senators by popular vote;" falling
. that, I would favor the Oregon plan. ' '' -"
A new request as to the initi
ative, referendum, and recall, sub
mitted a year later, (February 22,
1912) received the following re
ply: - ; • •
, I voted for the Initiative
and referendum In Missouri
when the constitutional
amendment . was submitted.
That ought to be proof
enough on the subject.' If
you will examine into my
record in the legislature and
in congress yon will find but I
I was getting progressive leg- ;
islation passed before some
of these progressives were
heard of. . -
Falling still to find any answer
to the question relative to the re
call, I again submitted to the
speaker the question in this form:
You have omitted—per- ■
haps by . inadvertence —to
state your position on the re- X
call, and particularly the re
call of judges. • You will
note that this was one of the
j questions. In order that your
answer may be. complete,
. will you please give our
readers your position on these
- two matters?..; Your cour
. I tesy In sending an early reply .
I will be greatly appreciated.
■ The above request was sent to
the speaker on March 9. So far,
no reply has been received.
Compromise Candidate.
Speaker Clark is In the. very
difficult position of being a com
promise I candidate. :. His role . is
not to be too progressive for the
conservatives (and. not . too conser
vative for the progressives. * But
the people of the I country are en

A-WONDHIUNG. -
Are Tacoma people subjects of
philanthropy? '
.A lot of them are wondering.
: The Exposition Development
company struck town the other
day, opened offices in the Perkins
block, put a big plat of "Summer
land Park Addition" In front of
the Circuit theater and then pro
ceeded to "give- away" lots in
Sonoma county, California. - ","*■
"Just advertising," one of the
strange young men in the office
told the Times man who could not
understand this liberality.
The stranger was careful not to
give his name. 'He had no litera
ture descriptive of the "choice
lots" in Sonoma county, which
were said to be a miles from
Cazadero," which is a milk station
back in the hills. -;. -..
Many lots Gone. . **S.
Many lots were marked off the
map of the addition. They were
disposed of in Portland, it was
said. ■ ' r _.-*>
Coupons we're given patrons of
the Circuit theater and grand
drawings were held dally and
someone drew lots apparently
every few minutes at the theater.
Mrs. West, wife of a truckman
employed by . Hammond & Co.,
commission men, put her name on
a coupon. -yi
Next day a stranger called at
her home and told her she had
drawn a lot. He wanted $2.60
to write the deed. She went and
borrowed the money from a neigh
bor and hand it over add agreed
to pay $7 more, "taxes and assess
ments," the stranger told her.
. Get Mosey Bock.
When West came home he con
cluded he did not care to Invest
$9 in Sonoma county lots he had
never seen. He began to hunt for
that stranger. After . three or
four days ho found him and final
ly got back the $2.60. .
Mrs. K. Browns, 811 South
Yakima, and her daughter, Mrs.
Cunningham, were lucky In the
"drawing" and won lot* and the
young men called on them &sk r '
Ing each to put up $2.50 for the
deed and agree, to pay $4 more
later for "abstract.' They refused.
Victor Malstrom was called
upon by a stranger and informed
that his boy had drawn a lot.
The stranger wanted * $6.50 for
"surveying." Malstrom did not
fall for it.
The project has heen 'going
merrily, with lots of lots "given
away" at the rate of from $5 to
$10 each for taxes, surveying,
writing deeds or any - other old
thing.;/". .■•■'. "■ - "XX,':
The "Exposition Development
company" left Portland suddenly.
It worked the same scheme there.
• h Police Stopped It. -'
When the' police began inves
tigating and ordered the theater
to stop giving away tikets the
men running the plan left quick
ly, not even waiting to ask for
a return of half a month's office
rent paid in jfelrvance and not
used. *- „-;'■ .i•■:.»"' ;;
