KMPERORS LATEST SPEECH.
On November 18 the reichttag was
opened by Emperor William in person.
In bis speech from tha throne be ex
pressed the "imperial" thank* to the
member* of the reichstag for their "co
operation in developing the army institu
tions which, in tbe interest of the security
of the empire, had become necessary."
Th- speech was concluded by expressing
the nope that, with Gods aid, the bless
ings of peace would be preserved in Ger
Recent developments In tbe attitude of
the French republic towards tbe emperor
and his empire would not saem to justify
tbe kaiser's bop* of peace, bat when his
desires for peace are construed in connec
tion with some of his other utterances
before tbe reichatag, tbe world is led to 1
believe that tbe German sky is bathed in
the sunshine of peace and bis empire's
foreign relations are unchanged. He
say* that ''Germany's allies also main
tain peaceful relations wltb all the pow
ers." From this curiously worded sen
tence is to be found the only hint of
strained relations with France and Rusia,
and that only by an omission. Whether
the emperor is trying to throw bis "allies"
off their guard, and at times of peace pre
pare fur war, can hardly be determined
by his speech; but he protest*, however,
that he wants peace, md he will no
doubt attempt to preserve it aa long as he
is not attacked and, like his illustrious
grandfather, he means to keep himself in
His reliance upon God's help to pre
serve to him tbe blessings of peace is one
of the strangest utterances in his remark
able speech—blasphemous or ridiculous,
according to the way one looks at it—is
tbe professed reliance In all they do "on
the help of God" by these great robbers
and thieves of states and people known
as conquerors and statesmen.
They mean the god of theoretical
Christianity, of course, though their own
aims and deeds and the spirit of the two
great commandment* and the "Sermon
on the Mount of ita Founder" are more
irreconcilable than oil and water.
This line of German emperors seems to
have always claimed a kind of special
partnership with God. Every morning,
along in 1870-71, old Emperor William
used to write a love-letter to his empress,
expressing a devout hope that God would
that d»V go out with him and help him
kill a tew more Frenchmen and nil a few
more French homes with desolation and
weeping. Every evening he reverently
returned thanks to the Almighty that he
had that day been allowed to rend and
ravage and mutilate and murder a few
more of God's creatures unlucky enough
to be French.
The most curious thing about it is that
when the blessing of God it asked by
these royal ruffains, they are always hon
est about it. They seem to Ibink He oc
cupies himself chiefly with their interests;
and the kaiser evidently believes that
when he supplicates the throne that con
sideration is entirely withdrawn from
France and Rusfia. It is to be hoped,
however, that the European skies may
again be calmed and that It will not be
necessary for God to interfere with the
strained relations between these powers.
It might be well for them to take a lesson
from the United States and England In the
matter of the adjustment of the Bering
Sea controversy. Of course it will diffi
cult for these blood-thirsty emperors to
submit to the modern mode of warfare by
arbitration, bat if providence is to inter
fere it is probable that peace will be re
UNITED STATES SENATOR.
John L. Wilson, oar present represen
tative in c ingress baa reluctantly become
a candidate for the United States senate,
and as a result baa come to the conclu
sion that there should be an «ztra session
of the legislature. He baa also been
forced to admit, after endeavoring in
every honorable way to keep from it, that
be is the best man in all the state, for the
position of United States senator. This
is very praiseworthy in Mr. Wilson. It
is also unusual for a Republican states
man, for aa a rale he blurts out without
a moment's notice at any time, and fre
quently under tbe most distressing cir
cuuipUii es for himself, that he, tbe par
ticular person speaking, is tbe best and
moat fitting of all men for this truly dig
nified position. That Mr. Wilson has
been compelled almost at tbe muzzle of
shotguns in the hands of his admiring
friends to admit that he is by odds the
best man for senator in the state, is very
commendable, indeed. Why should not
Mr. Wilson tell tbe trutb, even at the ex
pense at what Judge Turner would term
"immodest," frightfully T But Mr. Wil
son mistakes our temper in assigning the
excuses necessary for an extra session.
All of us who are Mr. Wilson's friends,
sra ready to throw np our bats when he
says the legislature should get together to
pass a stay law for us. This is good, it is
fortunate, and at this juncture we (eel
that he would make an excellent United
States senator; be would be a real down
right pride to the state, particularly if tre
could get bis legislatuie to make the stay
law permanent. To get such a man in
tbe senate would be sufficient for fifty
extra sessions. But bis next utterance is
disappointing; ob, how bitterly disap
pointing. He says the revenue law is no
good and under it the taxes cannot be
collected. Thunderation I Does the man
suppose that after be has bad bis legisla
tors do us the beneficent service of letting
us out of paying our grocery bills, that we
want to pay taxes? Not much. We want
to ran the government on county war
rants and have the payment of them
stayed too. So it is that we say that he
mistakes our temper; but it is not too
late yet, and as soon as he finds out how
we feel we are sore be is statesman
enough to "take a tumble," aa it were,
and get his sails square for the breezes.
We feel sore that there will be an extra
oession and that John L., having amended
bis statements as hereinbefore indicated
and mads bis proper promises to Hunt
and McOraw, will permit himself to be

XOri-: AND COMMEST.
What has become of the reorganization
ista since we put them onto the constitu
tional provision which prevented them
from having a speciul election, even if the
council did favor it, and pome of them are
lawyers too. We were on to it all the
time, but we just wanted a little fun with
the opposition. We thought that the
[i«m|ili' '>n/lit to know that their Belf-con
stituted ail visors even were not acquainted
with so plain and fundamental law as
the constitution of the state, so we allowed
tlifrn to occupy the public gaze well !»
fore w« squelched them by exposing the
unconxtitutionaiily of their scheme. We
admit that we let them down rather hard,
and some of them lawyers, too. We
would not have dune so, however, if they
bad been inure temperate in their utter
ances, or if they had not nsiiumed to know
everything in the start. It will lie a good
lesson for them—though rather hard on
the lawyers—who advised the council at
the secret session to cull a special election
and reorganise, but they are very young
yet and will no doubt live it down and
profit by their experience. And, mean
time for the nonce, farewell; farewell.
We have bad lots of fun at your expense.

John Arthur has spoken! Well, what
of this? and who is John Arthur, any
way? Well, John Arthur is John H.
McUraw's right bower. When Metira •
soured on the Republican committee last
fall because they were afraid to have him
bold a meeting in Tacoma, John Arthur
was the man McOraw put his campaign
in charge of. He held the title of chair
man of the King county central commit
tee. The other day a man met John and
asked him if there would be an extra ses-
sion of the legislature, he said: "Not
this year. You can bet on that." In as
much as this year only lasts something
leas than a month we construe John's
answer somewhat after the manner that
lawyers construe an answer nailed a neg
ative pregnant—a literal denial but a
virtual admission. When spoken to,
Arthur had just left MetJraw's room, too.
Mind what we have said. John Arthur
has spoken, and when he talks on matters
of this kind in this way, he'll do to bet on.
The administration is coming in for its
share of abuse for its altitude in tbe
Hawaiian matter. While ex-President
Harrison favored annexation, President
Cleveland believes that it should be left
to the Hawaiiana them wives to deter
mine whether the provisional govern
ment shall be made permanent or wheth
er it shall give way to a restoration of the
monarchy. This would seem to be the
better policy, and the president's action
is to be commended.
Tiik Herald, having shown to the tax
payers the utter groundlessness of the
pleas from interested parties for reorgani
zation, calmly awaits tbe announcement
of one reasonable argument in favor of
their scheme. Such statements as the
organ of the Y. B.'scontained were mere
ly generalities—not even glittering—and
this paper has too high an opinion of the
thinking public to seriously consider
them. Arguments—arguments and facts,
gentlemen, are what the people need to
convince them they are wrong.

r«W Qurtllaua A.hrd
Eo. Hibalo:—As you requested me to
write a "letter" on Yakima and the Mid
winter tair, I will try to otttT a few sug
gentiona and pat a few questions instead.
During the firat few montha that this
coming fair was talked abont it attrarted
ve-y little comment in Chicago. But
later on, say by the middle of October, it
seemed to get considerable headway and
bondreds of people visiting our building
at Chicago spoke of attending this Mid
winter fair. Then for the first time I be
came very much interested and anxious
that our state if possible should get In the
After talking the matter over with Mr.
E. S. Meany we went before the new
fair managenent to see whit could be
done for space. We could set space in
buildings for $2 a square foot and in
grounds, outride of building, fl a square
foot. Of coarse that let us out.
We could bave had the two palatial ex
hibition cars of tbe N. P. R.-K. Co. which
were used in Chicago for all tbe Northern
Pacific states, exclusively for our state;
more than that we could have filled them
with the cream of our Chicago exhibits—
mineral, timber, frnit, grain, etc.—and
had them hauled acroas the continent,
gratis. By replenishing with fruit, vege
tables, etc., of this year's crop we could
have made a showing to be proud of.
I said to the official: "Then for us to
show up the resources and products of
Washington, to help give character and
credit to your exhibition, you propose
to charge us just as much per square foot
as you would tax a mnn «ho wanted on
ly 4 square feet on which to exhibit some
patent rat trap or fake show." I told
him that let us out as we had no means
of raising $2,000 for space.
Now they send up to us Mr. Crsgie
Sharp, Jr., as their agent who says we
can come into the grounds free but will
have to pay )2 per aquare foot for space
in the buildings. These things show
their pilicy toward us and give us the
best idea of what they are trying to do.
I stiU feel that the midwinter fair, so far
as it pretends to be an exposition of the
resources of the Pacific elope in a fake,
but so far as it pretends to represent Cali
fornia it will be a beautiful and mannin
cent affair. California can do those
things and ahe will n this instance.
I believe that thousands of the well-to
do classic the east will be there. Very
many who went to the Columbian expo
sition decided to locate on the Pacific
coast somewhere, bat deferred making a
selection until they should visit the mid
winter fair and see "all" of our exhibit
Then so far as Yakinia is concerned it
would be • fine field to show Californiana
what can *)e done in the way of raising
choice apple*, hops and alfalfa on land
costing $50 to $60 an acre as compared
their $200 to $400 land.
One thing is sure, the Californian
knows what irrigation means, especially
if the supply is abundant, and on this
latter point we shine by comparison. *
The main questions that confront us at
ilim time are:
lot. Will it pay us to make such an ex
hibit as we would be forced to make at
this season of the year, so short a nol ice
and some of our best apples gone and no
funds in sight and no organization here
to take hold of It?
2d. Can we afford to miss such a golden
opportunity for disseminating Yakiina
literature, for showing up our champion
products, hops and apples, to the class of
people that will be there?
If such • course would bring 1,000 peo
ple to our valley within in two years, it
would be worth $100,000 to the county.
That is counting immigrants one-tenth
as valuable as Florida values her new set
tlers. Argument on the advantages of get
ting new settlers is probably unnecessary.
In this connection I can't lesist the temp
tation to speak of our lack as a business
community of anything like a commer
cial clnb, board of trade or chamber of
