This is a very perilous time for Young America. Every stone
in the foundation of our great American Republic is turned over
and over so many times and inspected by so many political spec
ialists that it is a wonder, it does not crumble away, from mero
handling. The names of our great statesmen and government of
ficials which, as school child>-en, they were taught to respect aud
honor, are now being dragged thru the slush of political intrigue
and party bickerings till the poor, uninitiated student is hardly able
t > NOOjahn tlietn as belonging to the same parsons. Our most be
loved and respected citizens now point with scorn at each other
and not so much as blush when culling each other liars and thieves.
Howcan the school boy reconcile this state of affairs to his ex
alted opinions of our government and its officials? No one can
doubt but that it has a tendency to make him suspicious of all man
kind, of all sxjial bond* and rairaUtions and that he is in a state of
mind where new and dangerous doctrines of government and so
ciety can be easily thrust upon him. The child has all faith, in
most cases, in his teacher but when he grows up and finds her
words were false (or seemingly so), he knows not where to turn
for the truth.
The burden lies on the older heads, who have passed thru many
political storms and found them to be, like the terrific thunder
storms of the east, not as destructive as they appear but, rather,
clarifing and refreshing in their effects. Don't forget to re
mind the boys and girls of this little truth.
The Lynden Tribune is opposing Governor Mead, although
he is a Whatcom county man, and supporting Frank Bixby for
prosecuting attorney on the ground that he is a Lynden man. It
is hard to tell how the paper will make this kind of consistency
work. Will every boost for Mcßride be a knock for Bixby or
will it work the other way? More than likely both of them will
lose out in the Lynden precinct. —Bellingham Herald.
The Herald, naturally judges other papers by itself and, thus,
cannot comprehend how The Lynden Tribune car take such an
inconsistent course !—measured by its code of ethics. This is
prima facie evidence that the Herald is supporting Gov c nor Mead
for re-election not on account of his superior executive ability and
honesty, but because he is from Whatcom county. Any old wag
might come up and ask its support and if he were from Belling
ham, or Whatcom county, the Herald would be for him, heart and
soul, just as it is for Mr. Mead. The governor should feel proud
of such a paper friend !
The Lynden Tribune supports it candidates for another rea
son. It is the best qualified man for the place, we are looking for
irrespective of locality. Of course, if that man happens to be in
our own community or even our next-door neighbor, he will get
our support just the same. We are ready to give honor to whom
honor is due and to none else. Again we might choose between
two equally well qualified aspirants for an office and rightfully
pick the citizen of our own neighborhood in preference to the
stranger. But it very seldom happens that two men are of equal
ability and so we choose the best, in our opinion, no matter where
he hails from or who bis friends may be.
In support of this we would respectfully invite the Heralds ed
itor to investigate the Court Records of Whatcom County. We
are satisfied that Mr. Bixby has more important and successful
litigation in tnis county than any of the three Bellingham men pit
ted against him. This, together with his general schooling, ma
turity, and high standing in this comunity, convinces us that he is
by far the most competent and best qnalified man for the place.
Lest there be undue quibbling with regard to the meaning of
what "reasonable local option" is, the Anti-saloon league is call
ing two state conventions of all temperance forces of the state for
h)pirp>*3of deciding upon the form of the local option bill
twhich the people want presented to the next session of the legis
lature. These conventions will be held respectively in Spokane,
August 4th, and in Seattle on August 5. The meeting at Spokane
will be held in the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A.
These meetings are for the purpose of ascertaining just what
the people of the State of Washington demand in the way of tem
perance legislation. Each Good Government club, Civic league,
Law and Order society, or other organization looking to the better
ment of moral conditions is invited to send a delegate. Each of
the unions of the W. C. T. U., lodges of Good Templars, and each
Grange in the state is also invited to send a delegate either to the
convention at Spokane or Seattle as may be most convenient. In
this way it is anticipated that such a bill shall be determined upon
as shall best represent the wishes of those opposed to the liquor
traffic. This will be left to a committee of those who have been
interested in the passage of local option bills in the past and law
yers whose ability cannot be questioned. The conventions, how
e.-er, will determine upon the general features of the bill: such as
the amount of territory to cover in the unit ; whether the precinct,
incorporated city, or county or all three. There are those who
believe the temperance sentiment of the state demands a state
wide bill, but it is uot believed that this representative gathering
will so decide.
Frank Wilson of Bellingham announces his candidacy for
county treasurer in this issue of The Tribune. Mr. Wilson has
been a resident of Whatcom County for seventeen years. Prior
