"No .Trespassing Notices"
printed on cloth, large size, clear
and distinct, at the Examiner.
The following letter was received
from a resident of the Aladdin country
this week, to whom a sample copy of
the Examiner had been sent;
"Editor Colville Examiner-I thank
you for your kindness in sending your
paper. My commendation can matter
little to you, but I wish to say there is
much to admire in the Examiner as a
publication, much to respect in its lack
of vituperative nonsense, so much af
fected by some papers, in expressing
your political preferences. There is
one thing I sought in your columns in
vain to find. That is, reminders of the
great prosperity we enjoyed during the
last term of a democratic president. I
shall be very glad to buy the Examiner
which contains a reminiscent sketch of
the great prosperity enjoyed when last
the democrats were at the helm of
state. Thanking you in advance for
an explanation which explains, I am,
yours sincerely, ."
The explanation which explains is as
follows: There was but little and
scattered prosperity in this country
during Cleveland's last term. Even
before Cleveland was nominated, dur
ing Harrison's term, business condit
ions began to be very bad, getting
worse each month, and the climax came

be in office. Republican politicians who

have attempted many times to show
that the hard times were the result of

What was the moral of this story?
Well, the nation seeing its fate, turned
to democracy to relieve it—and democ
racy did the best it could with a shat
tered business system. The country
was put on its feet, and when Mc-
Kinley was elected conditions were 80
much improved that it was little trouble
to continue the onward march.
This year the people are again at the
climax of the aggressive greed of the
trusts, and are again turning to de
mocracy for help. And if any argu
ment be needed to show that the peo
ple know where to turn, look at the
certainty of Wilson's election this year

From a Granger.
A prominent grange correspondent
sent the following to the Examiner
Wednesday, with request to print. The
letter is on file in this office:
"There are queer people in the world
and in Colville, in business and in poli
tics. But Mrs. Stayt, the first woman
candidate for representative, is a leader
when it comes to queer people in poli
tics. She wants the grangers to sup
port her, but will not promise them her
support in questions of great interest to
them. Now what is the matter with
Mrs. Stayt? Does she actually think
she can run things to suit her own
sweet self, just because nho is a
woman? Does equal suffrage give
women a preference to men? No. If
Mrs Stayt expects the support of the
grangers, she must bow to the wish of
this organization or go without its vote,
and in the latter case she must bear
the consequences. When she says that
pledges are of no avail, as they are
not observed anyway, Hhe is thereby
honest enough to admit that she would
not live up to this pledge should she
sign it and be elected. But, these
pledges become very important factors
to both candidate and voter when once
the recall is an established fact. For
then they become an ax, laid onto the
root of the tree, which in the hand of
the recall will cut out every tree that
brings no good fruit. So a candidate
who will not sign a pledge is afraid of
the ax, which shows that the tree is
not sound before planting."

jection to Mrs. Stayt is over the fact

From Mill Creek.
A letter from a Mill creek Granger
was received by the Examiner Thurs
day night. We quote a paragraph:
"It may be that your stand on local
politics is not to be envied. For what
with the ring against you, and the
Statesman-Index working overtime to
be on top slinging wicked epithets at
you, the position you have taken must
bear the brunt of political battle in this
Guess that's right, Brother Granger,
but Red Top's shoulders are broad and
what may not be envied now may in
some future time be historical evidence
of the manner in which the courthouse
ring was killed.
Why Mourn Your Condition?
From a Socialist
You want work, yet persist in voting
yourself out of a job.
You want a home, yet persist in vot
ing all the homes to the rich.
You want good clothing, yet persist
in voting yourself and family into rags.
You want good food, yet persist in
voting charity soup for yourself and
banquets for the idle rich.
You want coal for $1 per ton (miners
get 30 cents), yet persistently vote
to pay coal monoplies $5.
You want sugar at 2 cents (labor)
cost, ljcents ), yet persistently vote to
pay the sugar trust 6 cents.
You want coal oil at 2 cents (labor
coßt three-fifths of a cent per gallon),
yet persistently vote to pay the oil mo
nopoly 10 to 30 cents.
Your life is full of wants, to say
nothing of your needs, but you vote to
satisfy the wants of the rich and do
Your condition, tne price you pay for
every article, the wages you receive, in
simply a matter of the voting of the
majority. You vote the same ticket as
the rich, and of course that's what's
the matter. ___
