Electing a Senator.
Since Washington became a state and
has had representation in the senate of
the United States it has been an un
written law that one of the senators
should be chosen from the eastern part
of the state and the other from the
western part, a mountain range dividing
the state into eastern and western di
visions. This allotment of represents
tion has been uniformly adhered to, and
before the congressional districting of
the state was likewise observed in the
nomination of candidates for the lower
bouse. Such division of representation
was more than fuir to Eastern Washing
ton, which, with about one-tbird of the
population of the state, had an equal
voice with the more populous western
section and named half of the congres
sional delegation. With this arrange
ment and division Eastern Washington,
enjoying the greater proportionate po
litical power, could have no possible
qnarrel, and it has none, freely according
to Western Washington the unquestioned
right to have representation in the na
tional senate. But an effort is being
made in certain quarters to overturn
this satisfactory arrangement, disrupt
existing cordial relations and attempt in
the approaching primaries to capture
the second senator for Eastern Wash
ington. With this ill-advised effort,
constituting a breach of faith with the
people of the west side, The Qazette has
no sympathy, nor would it countenance
such a move if made in the interest of a
recognized republican, which the pro
posed beneficiary of this scheme, Con
gressman Poindexter, is not.
Common political honesty and sagac
ity would dictate that Eastern Wash
iagton aid in electing a west side senator
at this time, and because of the multi
plicity of candidates for the honor and
the consequent dangerous division of
the vote it behooves east side republi
cans to determine and combine on the
best and strongest man for the place, to
the end that our votes be not thrown
away, but placed where they will ba
effective in heading off the plan to elect
the Eastern Washington democrat who
JHHsqueraden a? a republican.
The (inzette has made extended in
quiry iuto the Bituation, as a result of
which the belief id now expressed that
the hope of the republican party in the
content against breach of faith and the
e*st Hide democrat lies in the candidacy
of Judge Thomas Burke of Seattle, who
combines more elements of strength than
any other candidate. In his home city
and county Judge Burke enjoys more
support, as is shown by accurate polls,
than all the other candidates combined,
being backed by an enthusiastic working
senatorial club now 14,000 strong, in
cluding in its membership a large ma
j irity of the leading republicans and
business men of Seattle. Organization
of this dab wan not undertaken until
aft«»r the failure of the effort to secure a
preliminary primary election whereby all
but one of the King county candidates
might be eliminated, Judge Burke being
the only candidate willing to submit to
the decision of the voters of his home
county. The enormous membership of
the club ie the answer to the question
frequently asked by republicans through
out the state as to who is the choice for
senator of the republicans of KiDg coun
ty. And it is not alone in his home
county that Judge Burke has support or
is gaining strength, for reports from all
parts of the state note the trend of sen
timent toward him.
Judge Burke is an able, safe and con
servative man, not affl;cted with isms,
who as United States senator would re
flect credit upon the state of Washing
Wenatchee, "where the dollars grow
on trees," will be invaded by the state
scribes on September 22, 23 and 24,
when the annual meeting of the Wash
ington State Press Association will be
h Jld. It is stated that 541 members of
the Wenatchee Commercial Club are
waiting to extend the glad hand to the
newspaper men on that occasion.
Within the past few days there have
b en published learned dissertations on
why Johnson, the colored bruiser, was
n»t the champion heavyweight pom
meller; that he had assumed the title,
not earned it, etc. Lst us hope that the
weighty question is now settled.
State Tax Commissioner J. E. Frost,
who maintains bis legal residence in
Ellensburg, has announced hie candidacy
in the republican primaries for the nomi
, cation for congressman in the Third dis
Boomerang Was Greased.
Theodore Roosevelt must be careful or
he will gain the reputation of being the
greatest jollier of the age. Many people
go to see him, including not a few in
surgents, who are described as coming
! away wearing a serene smile and inti
\ ranting that T. R. is going to do for
; them everything they desire, including
: endorsement of th^ir political aspira
tions. Congress man Poindexter delayed
; his departure from Washington for the
; purpose of being presented to the, ex
president, and after the interview hast
ened to wire the news home that Mr.
I Roosevelt would endorse his senatorial
I candidacy. Now The Qazette doesn't
believe this story, and if Mr. Roosevelt
fails to endorse and support Mr. Poin
dexter's candidacy, it will be op to the
latter to explain why he has been play
ing horse with hie constituents.
Later—Mr Roosevelt has loßt no time
in emphatically repudiating the etory
cooked up by Poindexter and Gifford
Pinchot, which was a shameless attempt
to trade on the popularity of the ex
president in the interest of insurgents in
general and the Washington congress
man in particular. It was a bomerang,
as the conspirators have probably dis
Statesmen Homeward Bound.
With the close of congress the western
statesmen are flocking homeward to taite
up the burden of political fence repair
ing before the September primaries
and the November election. The mem
bers of the Washington delegation are
expected in the next two weeks. Con
gressman Humphrey and Judge McCredie
will do a little campaigning in the inter
ests of their re election to the lower
house. At the present writing no op
ponent to Congressman Humphrey has
appeared, and he may have smoother
sailing toward reelection. However, it
is rumored that he will line up with
Judge Burke in the senatorial fight, in
which case the John L. Wilson forces
may bring out an opposition candidate
for congressman from the First district.
Congressman McCredie already has a
contest on his hands in the Second dis
trict, where Charles E. Claypoolof Olym
pia has organised a strong campaign
for the judge's seat. la fact the only
Washington man in either house of
congress who will have nothing to
worry him will be Senator Piles, who is
going to retire anyway. Senator Piles
months ago announced that he favored
Judge Burke for the senate, but it is not
expected that he will make an active
fight in the present contest.
Chief Justice Mellville W. Fuller of the
United States supreme court, who was

If your fire insurance ie carried in any
of the ten largest stock companies in the
United States, your insurance is entirely
safe, for these companies have cash as
sets, includicg their subscribed capital
and surplus, of nearly four times the
amount necessary to carry all policies
to expiration as based on the past nine
years' experience; but if your insurance
is placed with the Northwestern Mutual
Fire Association of Seattle, it is still
safer, because it has cash assets of
nearly six times the amount that will be
necessary to carry its policies to expira
tion as based on the past ninp years'
experience. If you insure with the'stock
companies you pay the stockholders a
handsome profit as well as very extrav
agant expenses. If you insure in the
Northwestern Mutual you receive the
profit yourself. Which do you prefer?

The combined population of the two
new states is estimated at less than
400,000, but It may reach halt a mil
lion before they secure representation
in Washington. But, whatever the
population, each state will send two
senators to the upper house and have
the same representation there as the
states where the population runs well
into the millions.
In view of the great natural re
sources of both Arizona and New Mex
ico, the statehood act cannot be a mis

After all the publicity it will be a
distinct relief to Roosevelt to "live pri

deal to give him the chance.
Now Is the time for the man who
launched the query. "What shall we
do with our ex-presidents?" to prepare
to defend himself.
Perhaps the comet went away mad
because the banners of welcome spell
