OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY
Beginning next week, the
Kettle Falls Scimitar will be pub
lished in the columns of the
W. H. Brooks, the founfler and
editor of the Scimitar, hail mov
ed his printing plant from Ket
tle Falls to Spokane, where he
will operate a job printing shop
at 1806 North Monroe. He has
turned his subscription list, ad
vertising patronage and job work
over to the Examiner.
The Kettle Falls managers of
the new Scimitar will be N. B.
Wheeler and J. M. Williams. Mr.
Wheeler has lived in Kettle Falls
22 years, and for years has been
the correspondent for the Review
and P.-I. Mr. Williams is cash
ier of the Kettle Falls branch of
theßankofColville. Both gentle
men have the interests of Kettle
Falls and the Columbia valley at
heart, and will endeaver to con
tinue the Scimitar for the bene
fit of that section. They will
have complete charge of the
Kettle Falls department, and will
receive advertising and job work
and make collections for their
All the Scimitar correspondents
will be retained. From one to
two pages of the Examiner will
be devoted to this department.
The Scimitar subscribers will
thus not only receive their own
news as usual, but in addition,
without extra cost, will receive
all the Examiner news, the of
icial county news and thetofficial
county seat news.
This combination of two news
papers, and the combination of
two subscription lists, will place
the Exaftiiner in the lead among
newspapers in northeast Wash
ington, and give an immense ad
vantage to advertisers, covering
as it does two distinct sections
of country. It will give the reg
ular Examiner readers a greater
field of reading, and will furnish
the Columbia valley section a
much greater field of publicity.
In addition to this, Meyers
Falls is to have a department of
its own, conducted by C. 0. San
ford of that place. He will be
authorized to handle advertising,
subscription and job work for
his department, and to collect
for the same.
Another new feature of the
Examiner will be a reduction in
the subscription price when paid
in advance. The cash-in-advance
price will be $1.00 a year. When
not paid in advance, the regular
price will be $1.50 a year. With
the increased subscription list,
it is the intention to gradually
place all subscriptions upon a
cash-in-advance basis, and those
who do not care to pay in ad
vance may discontinue the paper.
No more "booze" is to be al
lowed to white men on Indian
reservations while the "luxury"
is denied the Indian, the chief of
the Indian bureau has declared.
The white man on an Indian res
ervation will be denied whiskey
or other alcoholic beverage either
for refreshment or to cure his
ills or as a precaution against
ailments, even on a physician's
prescription, as long as the ban
is on the Indian. A recent cir
cular issued by the Indian bu
reau at Washington, I). C, ad
dressed to superintendents of In
dian schools and agencies, directs
observance of the law in strict
conformity with its letter. It
also calls attention to irregular
ities in observance of the law
that have come to the attention
of the bureau.
President Taft has issued his
Among the things which many
people are thankful for, but
which the president does not list,
is that election is over.
Although the Spokesman-Re
view as usual lost the election of
every one of its leading candi
dates, there may be hope in 4, 8
or 16 years for it to pick a winner.
Anyway, President Taft will
have the extreme pleasure of
sitting back in his chair and
watching the things which Teddy
doesn't do as president.

that there is actually ten years

LaFollette's Magazine: What
has become of the progressive
movement—not that so designat
ed by the Rossevelt convention,
but the fight for real democracy
of government? The most search
ing analysis of the so-called Pro
gressive party fails to discover it
as the basis of that organization.
A party called into being at the
bequest of one man, and for his
personal aggrandizement; a party
that has shed any principles it
may have had as a man sheds his
winter coat; a party that in lieu
of those principles for which the
real progressives of the nation
still are fighting substitutes the
personal program of an individ
ual; a party that is fish in one
state and fowl in. another, and in
all states anything to win; a party
whose leader, whose platform,
whose whole program has spent
and is spending a gigantic sum
supplied from the coffers of cer
tain interests that he overlooked
while president, a leader who,
with this money still jingling in
his pocket, appeals for votes as
the enemy of the corporations
and the friend of the farmer.
This party may be the hairyneck
and hands of Esau, but its voice
is the voice of Jacob the sup

So long as the new party con
tinues to be a party of protest
merely against another machine,
so long as its members surrender
their will to the personal direct
ion of one man, just so long will
it fail to become a real voice of
the people. And so long as it
seeks to belittle the striving after
the better things in government
by men not of the republican
tariff household of faith, just
so long will it fail to achieve any
thing save the separation of the
progressive forces into hostile
camps, and thereby aid in the
perpetuation of legalized robbery
President-elect Wilson pur
poses to keep the door to his pri
vate office in the White House
always open to the public, he an
nounced this week.
Governor Wilson said he had
decided to maintain, so far as
possible, the "open door" policy
which he had inaugurated at
Trenton. During his term as
governor he has insisted that the
door to bis private office never be
closed while he is in it.
In his campaign for the presi
dency he declared that he had
always felt that if the door to his
office were to be closed his con
nection with the people of New
Jersey would be severed. The
governor was standing in the
same doorway in the statehouse
in Trenton when interviewed.
"Are you going to keep the
open door at Washington, too?"
he was asked.
"I hope so," he replied.
"I don't know what the ar
rangements are in the White
House, but I intend to have the
door open as much as possible."
His idea is that the executive
of a state or a nation should "have
no locked door" conferences, or
transact any business in his pri
vate office that the public could
not actually see if it cared to.
"When I first took office as
governor," he said, "I was sur
prised at the number of people
who wanted to talk to me behind
the back of their hands and in
