GOV. HAY S 'PROGRESSIVE RECORD

law violation and brought the guilty parties into court, he stormed
and raved and ordered her never to do it again without consulting
him. The climax came b October, 1911, when he summarily de
manded her resignation, directly following a successful prosecution
on her part of a Seattle violator of the right-hour law. She right
fnllv demanded an adequate reason for her discharge bur Hubbard
governor, but the governor stood pat behind Hubbard. From all
over the state came a demand upon the governor for a fair hearing
for Mrs. Mason. Labor unions and women's clubs flooded Hay with
telegrams askhur for this one thing, i. c.. a fair hearing of Un
charges against -Mrs. Mason. Hay refused absolutely to interfere

that he will remain for four years more if Hay should be re-elected
The governor is not dwelling at any Length upon the Hubbard-
Mason episode. We wish he would, it would he interesting to hear
his explanation of Mrs. Mason's discharge and his defense of his
Everybody remembers the Aberdeen convent ion where Hay
flopped like a sick hen from the Roosevelt forces to the Taft forces
and bach agcin. with his vain offers of Compromise, and how he
finally landed ker plunk into the Taft camp and has remained there
ever since. The Aberdeen convention resulted in down-right theft
of the Washington delegation to the National Republican conven
tion, .v state-wide presidential primary would have saved the state]
by convening the legislature in special session. The people were
for it. The Big Interest newspapers were against it. and Hay. lack-
I thin* and end
favoring presidential preference primaries! Gov Hay would lock
barn sff the :. rse is stolen. After the Republican pane
bad put Tail over he was perfectly willing that the people should
have their presidential primary law. How truly "progressive!"
Ask Gov. Hay if he is the Progressive he claims to be and if
really a ryes credit for the progressive legislation enacted —the
- res he and his newspapers constantly refer to as "Gov. Hay's
ssive record" —why, it is that none of the men who fathered
•• . i hardest for those measures in the legislature are hii
. - in this campaign ? Ask him why it is that such men as
Speaker Taylor. Representatives Sims. Beach. Carlyon. Byerly. Me
Ardle, Senat ra Collins, E.istham. Rydstrom, Roberts, in fact virtu
all of the members of the legislature who were against our pro
gressive laws, are backing him now?
The Republican party is noted for its extravagant claims. It
is customary in campaign time for that party to claim the credit
for everything from a bountiful wheat crop to the discovery of gold
in Alaska. Gov. Hay is afflicted with the same disease, the habit
of claiming credit for every beneficent thine that ever happened. It
loesn't matter that other men did the work, the people will fall for
it. argues the governor.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating thereof. The proof of
'. .. Hay'f claim to progressivism is in his public record. If Gov.
Hay is a Progr Bsive, may we never know a reactionary. He hast
never been able to jret close to the people nor to grasp their views]
on public affairs. If he understood the modern trend of government,]
he never would have made his unfortunate reference to the initiative!
and referendum in his talk at the pioneers' picnic. He is out of j
touch with the human phase of industrial development. Despite his!
widely advertised advocacy of the compensation measure, he gavel
evidence not long a;.'o of a lack of understanding of a vital feature
of even that measure. Addressing the State Federation of Labor
convention in Spokane last January on the subject of Compensation,
he expressed the belief that the law would soon work out so that
ASSESSMENTS PAID INTO THE Ft ND BT EMPLOYEES OF
LABOR 001 LD BE MATERIALLY REDU< ED. No hope was ex
pressed that the law would soon work out so that THE PITIFULLY
INADEQUATE AMOUNTS NOW PAID TO iNJI RED WORKMEN
COULD BE MATERIALLY INCREASED. Standing before a labor
convention he upheld property rights before human rights.
Washington wanti a man for jrovernor of the Johnson type —
not v uieri business automaton. Washington wants a man for gov
eruor who "ill be on the side of the people in the great light be
tween the dollar siiMi and human justice which is sweeping over this
(•ountrv. Gov. Hay i.s not that man.

who is a candidate for re-election.
In the early summer ol 1907, the firm
of Hathaway & Alston recovered five
thousand dollars for me from F. J. Me-
Nealy Logging Co., as damages arising
from the depth of my husband!
Desiring to place si:; Iran lied dollars
of this at interest, I called on Mr. Guy
C. Alston. July 20. 1907, to see if he
could place the loan for me.
At that time the Sultan Manufactur
ing Co., a corporation at Sultan, seemed
to be in an excellent condition and its
: a! -tock was worth one hundred
cents on the dollar. The company de
sired to borrow six hundred dollars and
give me as security twenty-five hundred
dollars worth of capital stock of the
Sultan Manufacturing to. [n the judg
ment of Mr. Alston and my-eif the se
curity was good at that time, and on
his advice the lean Was made, and I re
ceived the note of six hundred dollars
and the stock as security.
Subsequently the company became in
solvent and sold its plant and machin
ery, and 1 called on Mr. Alston to see
what he could do with the note and se
curity. After investigation he informed
me that the note was worthless and the
Security of no value. "But," said he.
"you relied upon my judgment in this
matter. While I am under no obligation
to return this money, yet I feel that you j
should not lose it. The paper is worth
Mr. Alston paid me the six hundred
dollars, and I personally know that it
was an absolute loss to himself.
He is now a candidate for superior
judge and I state the above facts be
cause I feel that the public should know j
that when they deal with him, either on
the bench or off it. they arc dealing with
a man whose rectitude of purpose, in- 1
tegrity and honesty will never be ques
i tioned by those who know him.
I do not believe that i ne lawyer in
fifty would have done as he did in this
matter, especially at a time when six
hundred dollars meant so much to him.
I have not seen Mr. Alston for two
years and I am writing this letter with
out any solicitation from him or his'
