DEALERS
TONIGHT
The sentencing of Houston and
Bullock goes over until tonight.
When Judge Cushman called C.
E. Houston and John M. Bullock

Christian Or Turk—God Help Common People In War
FIRST PHOTOGRAPHS SHOWING TURKISH FLIGHT FROM HOMES RAVAGED BY BATTLE
The Times presents today this
first photograph to reach Ta
coma in which the Turkish flight
from homes revnged by shot and
shell and torch is shown.
This photograph is a classic.
Hie artist who could have paint
ed it from his imagination would
have found liimsclf famous. He
might have labeled it "War."
But artists, like other people,
both great and small, think that
war has to" do only with maps,
and plans, and tactics, and bodies
of troops and glorious combat.
They don't stop to think that the
common folks on both sides are
the basis of all war, just as they
are the foundation of every other
enterprise, in the known world.
In war it is not the great and the
rich who suffer. Their suffering,
as well as their fighting, Is done
for them by the common folks.
But if the artist were true to
life, if he had caught the real
spirit of the war, as the camera
has caught it in this wonderful
photograph, he would not have
thought the mud and water a lit
tle exaggerated; but as it is here,
ankle deep. He would have
thought of tho wagon, containing
the little household effects of
these Turkish humans who are
fleeing toward Constantinople,
COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

The city will have no trouble In
enting space along the new
Ileventh street bridge. John W.
Brockway appeared this morning
and askod for a lease for a candy

no action and will not lease any
thing until the bridge is done and
the plans made for the new dock

He would certainly have
thought of showing the merciless
ness of war by painting two
babies sitting in the wagon, as
this camera shows they really
were. He would have put the
bent, tired old man at the head
of the oxen, with his hesitating
wife and daughters trudging In
front through the mire, and he
own Id have hidden the suffering
on (he women's faces with the
shrouds all Turkish women must
wear.
This human artist would have
put in the big, strong boy who
rather liked the mud and the
poor little boy whose face showed
the near approach of tears.

MOTHER'S
PENSION
HELDUP
It Is not settled whether Louisa
Kobetich gets that pension for
the death of her son, who was a
fireman, or not.
Comptroller Meads has not yet
drawn the warrant and shows no
disposition to do so. The theory
on which the woman could got
the money from the firemen's
pension fund is that she was de
pendent on her son for support.
But it appears that she is mar
ried again and that her husband
is employed at the courthouse as
a janitor at a salary of $70 a
month.
Meads says that this makes the
action of the pension board In
voting her the pension illegal and
he will not draw the warrant.
Mills says the pension board is
a law unto itself and if it. thinks
a case is worthy of payment then
it can vote for payment and that
as ■ matter of fact Meads lias
nothing to do with Issuing the
warrant, and only has been doing
it to facilitate bookkeeping.
It looks as if the whole matter
will have to be sifted out.

The shoe question is one that gives most
people a great deal of trouble both from
tin- price standpoint and from the point of

There is one firm, however, that seems to.

rare.
By turning to page 2 of this afternoon's
paper and reading carefully the ad of
Hafsos & Matloek most men will see their
way clear of shoe difficulties.
In Tacoma the Times is the want ad medi
