At the nutionnl apple show held In
Spokane during the past week the
growers, shippers, and business
men seriously took up the prob-.
I«D) of saving the waste. These
men have been observing condi
tions and obtaining scientific ad
vice as to means of utilizing the
waste apples, a problem that needs
some attention in this section. 1
The experience In various west
ern localities with canning methods
have been most encouraging this
year. With the formation of the
LyndSi) Fruit Growers' Associa
tion and the building of a cannery
bore the canning of other local
farm products will naturally follow,
and also the making of vinegar, ci
der and the use of apples in ways
which are not now genarally follow
ed; the encouragement of the con
sumption of tipples —all these are
points that are being taken up and
carefully considered. If they are
solved practically, these problems
will result to immense advantage
of the producers of apples and oth
er fruits. The entire N'ooksaek val
ley should lend whatever aid is pos
sible in this matter. The men who
have undertaken the consideration
of such vexing questions deserve the
thanks of us all. It is the working
out of these problems that will add
to the revenue of the fruit sections
more than any other factor. The
sooner these questions tire settled
in a practical way, the sooner will
the full possibilities of the orchard
industry be realized.
When Defeat is Victory.
The history of the Taft adminis
tration is one of the saddest chap
ters in American political annals.
The betrayal of the people's trust
was followed by a rising tide of
the people's righteous wrath. This
was particularly intense among tht
rank and file of the republican par
ty, the men who had made Mr.
The people of the party were pro
gressive. The bosses who had seiz
ed the party machinery and the lit
tle army of retainers who serv
ed them were Tories. With the
approach of the primary campaign
the issue became clearly drawn.
Was the republican party to fulfill
its high mission of service to hu
manity? Was it to be an instrument
of government by the people? Or
wtis it to become a machine for the
defeat of popular government and
for the exploitation of humanity by
predatory wealth? The voters an
swered the question in the prima
ries wherever they had an opportu
nity. In twelve states where there
was fr.ee expression they decided by
votes varying from forty to one to
two to one that the republican par
ty was to be progressive.
But the bosses, the corrupt polit
ical allies of corrupt business, ov
erthrew the judgment of the peo
ple. The republican party was de.-
livered bound to the powers of plun
der and oppression. Then the Pro
gressive party was born.
After a 3-month campaign that
party has run second in a presiden
tial race. It has polled millions of
votes. It has spread into every state
in the Union. It has carried great,
populous states, hitherto rockboum
in the,ir allegiance to the republican
party. It has destroyed the republi
can party despite its splendid tra
ditions and all the memories that
cling around them. The progressiv*
party has taken up those traditions.
It now stands aggressive, militant,
organized, compact, ready to carry
on the battle for humanity, for gen
uine government by the people, for
which the republican party stood in
the dtiys of its purity.
Mr. Wilson was nominated as a
progressive and elected because a
large part of the people of the Cn
ited States believe him to be one.
This is in itself a victory for the
Had it not been for the fight
made by Colonel Roosevelt and his
followers at Chicago, and their n
vowed determination to» establish a
new party pledged to progressive
principles Mr. Wilson would not
have been nominated at Baltimore.
The nomination would have gone to
a recognized reactionary, and the
people of this country would have
had n choice between a reactionary
named by the democratic wins of
the bipartisan machine and a re
actionary named by the republican
wing of the same machine.
If Mr. Wilson lives up to the
promise of his progressive follow
ers, the Nation will owe it to the
progressive party that it has not a
Tory In the White House.
Hut whatever Mr. Wilson's poli
cy as president, the new progress
ive party will force a realignment
in the democratic population just
as tt has already done In the re
publican. A political party can no
longer endure in this Nation "half
slave and half free."
If Mr. Wilson aligns himself with
tho progressives of his party, the
powerful state bosses will force an
issue that will disrupt the party.
If he fellows In the footsteps of
Taft, the progressive voters of his
party will revolt, just as the pro
gressives have already done In the
repuVican party. And even Mr
Wilson's consummate skill at bal
ancing cannot keep these two forc
es ions together In one organisa
tion, \uth the militant progressive
party leading the cause of humani
ty and battering at the walls of
privilege. Philadelphia North Amer
Just about the most satisfied
candidate that made the race for
political preferment In Whatcom
county this fall is Senator Ed
Brown, of Custer. Early last sum
mer he announced that he did not
care for re-election so much us lie
wished to find out whether the
people or the corporations wanted
his bacon. The people wanted him
re-elected as was shown ut the fin
ish, and the "rings" were taught a
splendid lesson. Th_ey have been
shown that henceforth and forevoi
the people will run their own af
fairs and tlie ring masters have been
consigned into oblivion. " Trouble
makers,'' as Senator Brown terms
them, have made about all the trou
ble they are going to be permitted
to make. Tho jig is up with them.
Pledged to Progress.
Woodrow Wilson's sweeping vic
tory means one thing which must
never he overlooked or forgotten
in any survey of the election re
turns. Wilson won because the
country, notwithstanding till doubts
and questions, believed that lie
stood for progress. Had it been
otherwise there would have been a
different story to tell at the polls.
The future in the United States
belongs to progress. This is true
in politics and government as it is
in commerce, industry and, the
arts. No man, no party, can long
remain in the ascendency except by
the favor of American citizens who
believe in progressive principles.
When a man litis nothing but fie
truth to tell he uses simple words
and only a few of them. —Josh Hill
An Honest Man.
His words are bonds, his oaths are
His love sincere, his thoughts im
His tears pure messengers sent
from his heart,
His heart as far from fraud as
heaven from earth.
