pleased with the prospect of improved
times at Edwards.
"What do you think of the Republi
can nominees for county offices?" asked
a man a day or two ago. uOh, I guess
they are all right," was the reply.
Continued he, "I am a Republican,
but for county offices I never let poli
tics carry me away. I vote for good,
active young men, who I think are
well suited for the position they are
running for. I am opposed to filling
any county or state office with old
men. We want men with young
blood and fully abreast of the times.
Especially do we need here in our
county offices faithful, active men to
bring our island into more prominence.
Now we are one of the smallest coun
ties in the state, whereas with all our
resources and facilities, we ought to be
among the larger in population. At
election let us cast ring politics to the
dogs and vote for the best men every
time." "I believe you are right," was
the response, "but some men care more
for party than for the general welfare."
. "Why don't you Bubscribe for your
county newspaper, The Islander?"
was asked of a reading man lately.
i "Well, I expect to take The Islander
when I renew my subscription for the
Seattle Times. I hear the two papers
can be had together at reduced rates, as
well as the combine with the P.-I.
I see The Islander sometimes. It is
a good county sheet, but might be im
proved somewhat. For instance, it;
should give us more solid county news.
Among the news notes, too much space
is taken up with trivial matters. If
each correspondent would write up
the leading industry of his section and
enlarge on the resources of his particu
lar neighborhood, his notes would be
read with greater interest. Why, too,
can we not have a brief outline, from
the begnning, of the settlement of each
island? We all like to hear the ex
periences of old men. Here on Lopez,
the very first settler and several that
came soon after, are still living. What
those men have seen aud passed
through should be put into print for
the benefit of those of us who have

time there will be needed a history of

As an evidence of the increased in
terest taken in the improvement of
roads, the turn out at our road election
was larger this year than ever before.
All the settlers here are in favor of
good roads and to effect this end they
voted a heavy tax. They also started
a petition to be sent to the next meet
iug of the board of commissioners ask
ing that prompt measures be taken to
improve the bad portions of the main
county road from the Middle school
house east. As stated in former notes,
that part of the main road has re
ceived little or no repair since
the opening of the branch roads to
Riohardson. Now, Commissioner
Graham says that he will use his best
endeavors to put that part of the road
iv good shape. With a fine smooth
road running through from Lopez to
this end, communication throughout
the island would be greatly facilitated.
This year our road supervisor is Chas.
Sweeney, a mau of few words but a
rustler at work. He no doubt will
give us a good service. In the Rich
ardson road district Samuel Wilson
was re-elected as supervisor. He
knows how to make a proper,road and
we look to him to fix up the neglected
road referred to above. Commission
er Graham says he lately has been j
over the roads at the north end of
Lopez and he is at a loss to know why
the people there don't spunk up and
have better roads. In this'connection,
it is a wonder that the ex-judge does
not use his wide influence to better the
facilities of getting arouud in that sec
tion. We understand he favors the
expenditure of county funds to ere,ct
attractive buildings on the prominent
points of the shores of our principal
islands, so as to draw the attention of
strangers passing by on steamers and
influence them to locate among U3.
Were such buildiugs erected, no doubt
they would greatly beautify our rather
rough and cheerless shores and have
the effect the judge predicts, but such
enterprises for the present, must of
necessity, be left to private taste and
expenditure. Better improve all our
roads and develope the internal re
sources of these beautiful islands.
Here, where we can never have rail
roads, we ought to have first-class
wagon and buggy highways. How
many intending settlers have gone
away just because of our miserably bad
roads? Said one of them, "I would
uot live in a community that is con
tent to drag their products over such
stony unimproved roads, wasting their
time and wearing out their vehicles.
I will go where there is more get-up
to the people." X.

V REPUBLICAN COUNTY PLATFORM.
5 The Republicans of San Juan county
with pride again proclaim their unquali
fied allegiance Ito j those wise | principles
which have made our party illustrious in
its past, splendid in its present and secure
in its future. .- ■:.■ * ""''.'
-" We ' rejoice in . tfee broad and patriotic
administration - of President «■ McKinley.
His policies have • been right. His meth
ods nave been pure. His judgment has
been sound. His patriotism has been
exaulted. His pledges have - been re
deemed. Under his guidance the sun of
prosperity has driven away the clouds of
despair and the civilized world acknowl
edges and applauds the glory and honor
which t have crowned the nation. What
more can sbe desired? In these trying
hours he deserves the loyal support, of
every patriotic American, without regard
to party, creed or condition. • The humb
lest citizen can share in: that support by
aiding in the < election of a Republican
congress in harmony with the policy of a
Republican president. .
The glorious achievments of our army
and navy in our war ; with Spain have
shed an . incomparable lustre upon. the
prowess :of our nation at home and
abroad, ;and have exhaltedand ennobled
American citizenship throughout the.
world. These branches of our public
service deserve the '■ highest honor at the
hands of a grateful people. -"■ - -
■ We rejoice in the annexation of Hawaii.
Inaugurated by Harrison, almost frus
trated by Cleveland, triumphantly ■ con
summated by McKinley, the honor of our
flag has at last been vindicated.
Two ; years ago while the prophets of
Populism were riotously storming the
sober judgment of the people of this state,
the Republicans of this county in like
convention assembled, unanimously pro
claimed their deliberate judgment in the
following resolution: ;.
"Prosperity will return to this nation
only when its people return to the condi
tions of sound public policy and restore
the beneficent and patriotic principles of
Protection and Reciprocity. No other
question so vitally concerns us. We de
mand a prompt return to that policy and
the overthrow of the present Democratic
system which has denied us Protection,
destroyed Reciprocity and deprived the
Treasury of adequate revenue. We pre
fer a Republic surplus to a Democratic
deficit. We know what to do with the
one but have never discovered any possi
ble use for the other."
As a gratification to those who then
voted with, us, and as a lesson to those
who then voted against us, we again com
mend the truth and wisdom of that reso
lution to the voters of this county. A
Republican congress and a Republican
president speedily restored to the coun
try the blessings of Protection and Re
ciprocity. Prosperity followed. Public
revenues increased. Labor found em
! ployment, and the whole people are now
busily engaged in the rapid recovery of
that which had been so wantonly wasted
and . destroyed by a cruel warfare upon
our industrial energies. Protection and
Reciprocity are stilJ our watchwords. We
appeal to all voters to assist us in defend-"
ing these principles against those who
would again tear them from the . statute
books. V '
The present gold standard is the only
true and safe basis for all our money.
We want no : experiments with
that which the civilized world already
recognizes and receives as the best. A
change from the best could not be an im
provement. The character of money
which commerce demands is none to
good for the soldiers, the sailors, the pen
sioners, the producers and the laborers of
this country. We congratulate the Re
publicans of this county that, during all
the storms of financial heresies which
have swept over this country in the past
1 few years,' they have never yielded to
such influences, but have stood firm and
steadfast in their ; faith in honest money
and without equivocation have continu
ously proclaimed the same.
We favor the immediate construction of
the Nicaraguan canal, owned and con
trolled by the United States. ;.-
We favor the strengthening of our army
' to meet the changed conditions resulting
from the war. :-i'
We favor the enlargement and improve
', inent of our navy until the number and
power of our ships shall be commensurate
with the skill and courage of our men
who man them, and with tho needs of our
widely expanding commerce.
Wo favor the encouragement ] and de
velopment of our merchant marine by
proper national aid. ■■
Believing that in union there is strength,
we heartily approve the spirit of firm and
friendly co-operation which is manifest
ing itself among the Republicans of our
northwestern counties and cordially en
dorse the organization of the Northwest
Republican Association and the princi
ples and purposes enunciated by it. We
believe such organization will be a strong
agency, not only for Republican success
within the; allied counties, but will Ibe
able to exert a powerful and beneficial
influence for the good of Republicanism
throughout the state. - :
We commend the honest, efficient and
obliging public service of all our Repub
lican county officers nominated and
elected at the last election.

aid in maintaining the principles herein
enunciated by the triumphant election of

CLOVER DODDER ON HENRY ISLAND.
Henby Island, Sept 12, '98.
Mb. Editor—Dear Sir: I think it
my duty to say a few words about
"dodder," a very obnoxious weed of
the pharisite family, which is fast tak
ing hold of our clover fields in San
Juan. While mowing, this summer, I
came upon several patches, one of
which nearly stopped the scythe, being
a solid mat four inches thick at the
time. I did not know what It was, but
could see it was a dangerous weed, as it
had the clover nearly smothered out.
It is impossible to mow dose enough to
kill it, but after mowing, by taking a
hay fork and striking in a half circle
close to the ground it brakes it from
the clover. It is an easy and sure way
to get rid of small patches and it does
not kill the clover as by burning, but
where there is a large area to be treated
I think the kerosene spraying would
answer the purpose best. I have got
rid of the pest entirely with the fork,!
going over the patches every week and
not giving it a chance to seed. Some
of my neighbors were inclined to think i
light of it when I spoke of it at first
and have let it run to seed and where
it was neglected the ground is bare, and
I question very much if the clover will
come up again, but if it does, the "dod
der" will be there to ding to it like an
octipus. I think it is to every farmer's
interest to keep down such a peat. "A
stitch in time saves nine."
I send you Mr. C. Piper's letter, that
you may insert it in your paper, hop
ing it may be the means of helping
those who are troubled with "dodder."
Chas. V. Piper, botanist and entomo
logist of the Washington Agricultural
Experiment Station at Pullman, gives
his opinion as follows:
Pullman. Aug. 12, '98.
Mr. D. G. Swapp, Roche Harbor-
Dear Sir: Your letter of July 18th
should have been answered ere this.
The plant growing in your clover is
"clover dodder" (cersenta arvensis). It
is, as you say, parasitic on the clover
and later it bears numerous white blos
soms. Mowing the infested places and
burning straw over them is one method
of combatting the dodder, and a good
one, if there is not too much of It; or
you can spray the patches with kero
sene and burn them out One cor
respondent writes me that in bis alfalfa
he got rid of it simply by mowing the
infested places every few days through
the season. If you once get rid of it, it
is gone for good, as impure seed is the
principal way this weed is spread.
