WHY DOES CRY OF "STOP THIEF" TERRIFY THE GANG?
The cry of "STOP THIEF" does not aiarm the honest man, but that
cry shoots a pang of sudden terror into the very heart of the crook. The
cry of "STOP THIEF" puts the honest citizen on his guard, while the
crook, on the other hand, if flight is cut off quickly and secretly,
ditches his loot; then striking an attitude and posing as a virtuous citizen,
he joins in the hue and cry to catch HIMSELF.
But the guilty crook, like the wolf in the sheep's clothing, tries to lead
his pursuers on a blind trail. He madly tries to stampede them in the
Compare the antics of the thief to the caperings of the crooked gang
which WAS CAUGHT LOOTING THE PEOPLE OF THIS STATE.
The short article below, proved as the truth by the state auditor's re
port, is the cry which to the ears of the crooked gang sounded the same as
the cry of "Stop Thief" sounds to the thief:
(From the Wall Street Journal, Sept. 12, 1912.)
"The report of state auditor of Washington is a volume of 600 printed
pages, of which a considerable portion is blank paper—what the grafters
call 'printer's fat.' It records numerous officials; big salaries with extra
compensations; lady clerks at $1,800 a year; months of vacations at full
pay; hordes of politicians' clerks, BEARING A SUSPICIOUS NUMBER
OF SIMILAR FAMILY NAMES; expenses endless, milage fees interminable,
postage stamps by the bushel; porters, pages, waiters, parasites and nepotism
everywhere, and with what to show for it? A few extravagantly conceived and
badly executed public works, without reproductive.return, the interest on
whose capital cost is another burden on the taxpayer. THERE IS NOT A
CORPORATION IN THE UNITED STATES WHOSE DIRECTORS
COULD SHOW SUCH A RECORD AND STAY OUT OF JAIL."
And now —and now—does not the crooked gang try to lead the men
and women of this state on a BLIND TRAIL? Does not the gang, like the
•cunning thief, garb itself in the guise of the OUTRAGED CITIZEN? Does
cot the gang holler and fume and shout about all the "cardinal virtues"?
Does not the gang raise false issues, spout slander and spread lies in its
FRANTIC EFFORT TO STAMPEDE THE PEOPLE IN THE WRONG
MAKE IT UNANIMOUS
Why not make it unanimous'?
Stanto-u Warburton is going to bo re-elected to congress —no question
.about tliat. The only point for controversy is the size of the majority. He
is the first congressman that ever went from this state that has attained
any material national recognition as a legislator for the people.
Tacorna hns a chance to give him the largest majority of any man who
•ivill be elected this year.
That would be worth something in prestige. And what Washington
needs is men in congress with prestige. Send Warburton back there with
a majority of about five to one over all candidates and when he gets up and
says "free sugar" the nation will sit up and take notice. And when he
«ays good roads, the congressmen will conclude they better get busy and
f>ass his bill. J
In other words, right now is a good time for Southwest Washington to
get together on a n^an who already has a good start and give him such a
boost that everybody will know this state is on the political map.
One thing is sure when Lorenzo Dow is elected prosecuting attorney
there will bo no grand juries investigating the of lice to see whether depu
ties are allowing prisoners to buy immunity from prosecution or whether
deputies are robbing ignorant women brought in on flimsy charges for the
purpose of getting their bank books.

First —My entire time and attention will be devoted to the duties
of the office to the exclusion of all outside business— a requirement
exacted of attorneys working; for any largo business organisation.
Second —l will employ only three assistants Instead of five. A
Prosecuting Attorney, with throe assistants who are always on the
Job, can transact the business of the office.
Third—My deputies will be chosen because of their ability, hon
esty and efficiency, and not on account of their politics.
I am a graduate In law of the University of Virginia. I have
practiced law In all the courts of Washington for seven years' two
years associated with Judge O. O. Ellis and Hon. John 6 Kletcher.
I am now associated with A. H. Denmun. As to my ability, I refer

TO THE ELECTORS AND TAXPAYERS OK PIKRCK CO.:
Owing to the large volume of business in this office in
the past 60 days I have been unable to give any considerable
time to further my candidacy for the office of Prosecuting At
torney, and for that reason I desire that you know, if you are
not already informed, that I have, as deputy prosecutor, in
the past three and a half years conducted approximately 600
of the people's cases and have prevailed in 95 per cent of
them. I do not believe that a .prosecutor's ability should be
measured alone by the number of cases won, but rather by
the broader gauge of squares dealing and Justice, and this I
always have contended for.
I have given every hour of my time and every ounce of
my energy to my County and State. I assisted in the estab
lishment of the Juvenile Court, and am now one of its unpaid
officers. I believe by correcting the incorrigible boy or girl,
that the criminal courts will have less work, th« penal Institu
tions fewer Inmates, and to society will be saved a great pro
ductive unit. As chairman of the legislative committee of tha
State Prosecutors' Association I intend by legislative enact
ment to have created a court of domestic relations which will
solidify, rather than forever sever, the marital tie, so that the
family, the basic unit of society, will be saved. My experience
has further taught me that we must devise a law for the paid
employment on highways of the drunkard, the family deserter
and the petty offender, so that the innocent wife and children
may have at least a semblance of support while the erring
one is serving time.
To deal with the many delicate feminine Questions aris
ing in this office I purpose to appoint an efficient woman
lawyer as a deputy. If you beliere in a rigorous, vigilant and
intelligent prosecution without fear or favor against the rfch
or poor, high or low alike, may I ask you for your vote regard
less of your party affiliations? Yours truly,
