THE STATE SUPREME COURT.
Personnel and High Character of
Present Members of Court.
Seattle, Oct. 19 —The non-partinan
judiciary movement tms not been re
ceived with the popular approval which
its promoters expected. Reports coming
in from all parts of the state indicate
that the people generally do not look
with favor on the proposition to revolu
tionize the supreme court by the whole
sale retirement of tried and trusted
judges and the election of lawyers, most
of whom are strangers both to the bar
and to the laity. The injection of sena
torial politics into the state convention
which nominated the present justices for
re election provoked widespread criticism,
bat even their most radical opponents
can not lay any blame for this condi
tion on Justices Gose, Fullerton, Rudkin,
Morris and Parker. They had nothing
to do with changing the primary law
which forced the return to the conven
tion system and still less to do with
political manipulation of the convention
which nominated them.
Work of Radical Leaders.
When Poindexter swept the state at
the recent primaries a few insurgent
leaders determined to seize the oppor
tunity to gain control of the supreme
court. He at once saw that his radical
supporters were courting daoger in the
proposed raid on the supreme court and
expressed strong disapproval. As a
lawyer and former superior judge he
could discover no reason for the move
ment. In spite of his objection a small
group of politicians, representing no
party and having no power from the
people either through primaries or
county conventions, got together and
put out the ticket labeled as non-par
tisan. It was not an insurgent move
ment; it is simply a grab for power.
Efficient and Honest.
Since the Root scandal passed into
history no question of the honesty and
efficiency oi the supreme court justices
has ever been raised. Justice Fullerton
has served on the bench since statehood;
Justice Rudkin took office five years ago;
Justice Gose wbb appointed by Governor
Mead at the special request of the late
Governor Coßgrove, before the latter had
taken the oath of office; Justices Morris
and Parker were appointed two years
ago to newly created positions on the
bench. All were formerly practitioners
of high prominence in their several com
munities and some had seen long service
on the superior court bench before their
election. Man for man and lawyer for
lawyer each is infinitely the superior of
his opponent on the so-called non
Results of Personal Investigation.
President Taft's cabinet should be
able to deal with questions affecting the
Pacific Coast, aad particularly the Pacific
Northwest, more intelligently than any
previous set of cabinet officers if per
sonal investigation counts for anything.
No less than seven of the president's
advisers have been on the coast, and all
have visited the state of^Waehington
since the first of the year. Secretary
Ballinger, of course, is a coast man and
has spent much time here this year. The
other cabinet visitors have been Post
master General Hitchcock, Secretary of
War Dickinson, Secretary of Agriculture
Wilson, Attorney General Wickersham,
Secretary of Commerce and Labor Nagel,
and lastly, Secretary of the Navy Meyer,
who was here this week and who left for
the south Wednesday. Attorney General
Wickersham and Secretary Nagel also
went to California a few weeks ago. The
two latter officials included a compre
hensive tour of Alaska in their western
trip. From all this attention it seems
safe to predict that the national Bdmin
istration will have much to recommend
to the next congress in the way of legis
lation and departmental action that will
affect Pacific Northwestern interests long
neglected through lack of accurate in
RECIPES FOR BLACKING.
How to Make a Liquid and an Oil
A fine liquid blacking is made «is fol
lows: Tut one gallon of vinegar into a
stone jug: add oue pound of ivory
black, well pulverized; half a pound of
loaf sugar, half an ounce of vitriol and
one ounce of sweet oil. Mix by stir
ring. This blacking is highly recom
mended as producing a fine jet polish
and is less injurious to leather than
most of the pastes and liquid blackings
in common use.
A fine oil paste blacking is made
thus: Take a quarter of a pound of oil
of vitriol, ten ounces of tanner's oil.
four ounces of ivory black and ten
ounces of molasses. Mix the oil of

MliS. BOLENS—MISS ELEANOR SEAKS.
Old and young, for pleasure and for
profit, women are keeping shoulder to
shoulder with men in their strenuous
race for the successes that come from
mighty effort. Whether in the tield
of bucJnoss, philanthropy or athletic
sports the race U to the swift
For several years Miss Eleanor Sears
has been accounted the most streu
uous and successful of women in the
all round athletic class. This favored
Boston society girl handles the rib
bons over thoroughbred horses with
the best of the crack whips and
drives her motorcar like a professional
chauffeur. She sails a boat with the
best of them, plays tennis and makes
wonderful drives on the golf links
Probably at this moment she is hav
ing an aeroplane costume made for a
Miss Sears has all the energy that
should belong to youth and health, but
more remarkable still is the career of
Mrs. Sarah Bolens, who, at eighty
years of age, is a successful editor of
a paper at Port Washington, Wis.
She can generally be found in the edi
torial rooms of her paper, the Star.
and those in the office say that she
knows more than any one else about
Mrs. Bolens is intellectually bright
and entertaining. Her memories of
the early editors of Wisconsin are un
impaired, and she can tell interesting
anecdotes of many of them.
Stirring tales can Mrs. Bolens tell
of her childhood days, when the wo
men wore men's clothes and carried
rifles. During the civil war. while her
husband, father and brothers were en
gaged, in the war of the rebellion,
Sally Bolens was publishing a news
paper, and she became the official bead
of the Star upon the death of her hus
band, a position she is now filling, al
though in her eightieth year.
Buy Christmas Gifts Now.
This is a good mouth to buy Christ
mas presents if a wise selection is
tuade. Silk stockings are a favorite
gift to girls and can be had for less
now than in December. If, however,
you find lovely ones in lace effects for
almost nothing, remember that lace
stockings are almost unrecognized now
by fashionable wo # men. and the favor
ite is a sheer, thin silk with clocks or
solid embroidery in self tones.
You may be tempted again to get
that feather boa which is so much
cheaper than any you ever saw. Per
haps you think it will be just the gift
for the friend to whom you are under
such obligations. A strict answer to
the "Why?" would reveal that feather
boas are conspicuous by their absence
just now. It is the purchase for some
girl who does not keep to the top
notch of style, but an embarrassment
to the friend who does.
In purchasing bargains for gifts go
in less for personal things than for
dainty pieces of china, glass, silver
or antiques th:H are much reduced.
It is an excellent time to buy wedding
presents if there is an appalling array
of brides for the autumn.
Bits of jewelry, novel hatpins or belt
buckles that are in good style now
will be equally good at Christmas.
The same cannot be said of neckwear
and blouses. A pretty corset cover or
combination and a fine nightdress will
invariably make an acceptable gift.
Abandon the "impulse of the mo
ment" attitude. Sleep on it and you
will feel different in the morning.
Truth is fragile, short lived, unob
trusive, bold and sweet to the taste.
Artists teach outsiders where to look
for beauty and to discover it in places
where they have not seen it before.

into a child's mind bucketfuls of facts
