Browne, of the Rogers-Browne school
book rniHt, will bave a bard job on hk
hands convincing the parents of Wash
ington that locating Spokane in the
Cascade monutaius, marking a line of
railroad on the crest of the Rame mount
ains running north and south, naming
Dawson as a city of Alaska, omitting
the Northern Pacific and (Jre»t North
ern railroads as far as Seattle is con
cerned, which appears in the Wagner
geography, are typographical errors. It
ia estimated that there are over a thou
sand errors as rank as these enumerated
Spenkine of trusts, bow do the par
ents of Washington enjoy tbe Htate
pchool book trust established by Rogers,
Browne and others? Not only is the pa
rental pocket book filched, but tbe
school children are compelled to get
their geographical knowledge from
grossly (might say criminally) inacurate
books. It is shameful, and should be
resented at the polls.
John R. Rogers, the present governor
and candidate for reelection, is re
sponsible to tbe state of Washington for
one of the grcmtetft outrages ever perpe
trated on a free people. Reference is
made to tbe adoption by hisstate board
of education of tbe text books in the
public schools of Washington for the
next five years. These books are abso
lutely worthless, and the ridiculous mis
takes in the speller and geography in
particular causes even the primary grade
pupils to poke fun at Mr. Rogers' "skool
In order that a solid democratic dele
gation may be Hecured from the Houth in
congress, all the negro voters in that
section have been disfranchised. Hence
it is necessary that all republican repre
sentatives possible should be elected
from the northern states. Every loyal
man in the state of Washington should
vote for Cushman and Jones.
The republican candidate for governor,
J. M. Frink, is gaining friends every day
in his canvass of the state. His genial,
honost face is a magnet that draws men
of every shade of politics to his support.
The republicans of Washington made
no mistakp when they selec.ted J. M
Frink as their stendard bearer.
Business men and wage earners
throughout the length and breadth of
the land are rapidly coming to the con
clusion that the hope of the country
reaily rests in a continuation of th°
present prosperous conditions. When
they are fully awakened to it the hoDes
of the Bryan party will vanish.
Fly the flag; vote to keep it flying.
During the Spanish war the flag was
worn and flown by all patriotic Ameri
cans. Let them wear and fly it now to
show they intend to uphold the adminis
tration in keeping the fruits of tbe. war
Fußionietß would have the men of this
country believe that it is far better to
haul down the flag in the Philippines |
than to keep the wheels of commerce
turning and the willing workers em
ployed in the United States.

Treasurer P/indus has made a record
which the republican p»irty behind him
is proud to call attention to. Be hus
inaugurated a system of bookkeeping
which keeps every one of the various
county fonds as straight as a die. Mr.
Wiiidus deserves and will have re-election.
Auditor Corner bus honestly conducted
his office. There h,i\v been no petty
postage steals and do scandals. He is
tftrong with the people because of his
absolute honesty and will show it by his
If the people want an honest assessor

the hardest work, brought the books of
the office to a system. Cos >ts*essor"s
office has heretofore been conducted in
so loose a way as to be simply a dis
grace. Mr. Siler has placed In* office in
a state of efficiency which should con
tinue him for another two years.
One of the most important coaafty po
sitions—as the people look upon ft—is
the county Burveyorsnip. The bound
aries of a man's farm and every county
road depend upon the competency anil
faithfulness of the county surveyor. K.
C. Murray has certainly done the duty
expected of him as a competent sur
veyor. His work has been true, as he is
true There in no call for the election of
a man who is not a surveyor.
Important positions in the handling of
the affairs of a great county like Whit
man, with itn varied resources and large
business interest*, tire the positions of
county commissioners. A weak and un
trained man there can do the taxpayer*
who furnish the funds incalculable harm.
The requisites fora countj commissioner
are honesty and business sense. The
hoard of commissioDers handle all of the
several hundreds of thousands of dollars
annually paid info the^eounty treasury
by the taxpayers. They moat neither be
too liberal or too stingy. T!ie board is
pow republican, and every man gets his
just dues. There is no falsu teouomy,
aor is there profligate a>as*e of county
money. Mr. Huutley of Endicott and
Mr. Luce of Fallon carry reputations as
safe business men. They will pay every
dollar to which any citizen or claimant
in entitled, bat they will refuse payment
where not entitled.
It is of conrse well understood that
the legislature is Mm moat important
branch of politics. The people want
laws made ami Doited States senators
elected in harmony with their riews.
The nation, state and county are un
doubtedly republican in sentimeal anri
in practice thin time. Every republican
nominee wan selected because of Us
principles, faith aud bonewty of purpose.
Some have nerved in legislative halls aad
have shown their honesty and legislative
capacity. Others are new in the politi
cal arena, hut bare own tried in the
crucibles of sound wriHe and capacity for
the places for wbtcfa they bare been
named. Mr. l'erley, Mr. Smith, Mr.
Westaeott, Mr. Allen and Mr. Durham
are all safe men. The republican party,
as a progreb^iveand upbuilding political
factor, pledges them ac deserving of the
honors for which they have been chown.
A. A. Wi!«on of l'alouse, nominee for
prosecuting attorney, is a man of stand
ing in the bosiMM and professional
world. Democracy and funionism are
both doing everything possible to defeat
him. Mr. Wilson is a thoroughly com
petent lawyer and an honest man for the
place. There is no reason why any re
publican should refuse him a vote, or
why a single ballot of even the opposi
tion should be cast ugafrißt him.
