everywhere are hoping a victory in Washington for
Poindexter, and all other progressive candidates will
complete the circle won in recent triumphs.
(Signed) A. B. CUMMINS.
2 TO I ON
One of the best evidences of the
popularity of Poindexter with his
fellow citizens in Spokane, and a
proof of the belief that he will be ;
nominated for United States sena- 1

willing to back his chances with,
their good, hard coin.
Hots on Poindexter at 2 to 1 and
even 3 to 1 have gone* untaken this
morning. Others, more bold still,
have posted their rash that Poin

strong, but I did not think that he

THE, SPOKANE PRESS
WHO OWNS WASHINGTON?
the profits of tho predatory, of shall they be fleeted byhonest, unselfish and patriotic citizens and devote them
selves to making it easier for the industrious worker to earn a living!
This is an issue in tomorrow's primary election.
Back of Judge Burke, back of Jim Ashton and back of Seabury Merritt stand all the political bosses, the machine
politicians, the crooked legislative lobbyists and the great corporation lawyers. And back of the bosses and the
lobbyists and the corporation lawyers are their bosses, the great corporations, the resource grabbers, the allied
forces of graft and greed in Washington, and in the nation.
For their election these interests will spend money like water, for these men, if elected, will vote in congress to
protect their powers of public plunder. They will vote against an honest revision of the tariff; they will vote
against a reduction of the exorbitant cost of living; they will vote against the honest conservation of the people's
resources; they will vote against an effective control of public service corporations which are robbing the workers
of the fruits of their industry.
This is an issue in tomorrow's primary election.
Back of .Miles Poindexter and hack of the insurgent candidates for congress there is no political machine, no
powers working in darkness, no parasitical corporation lawyers or salaried political henchmen. If they are elected
they must he elected by the voluntary votes of good citizens, by the fearless and independent support of men whose
patriotism is unsullied by the stain of selfish interest, and the corruption of dirty money.
This is an issue in tomorrow's primary election.
Burke and the standpat congressional candidates represent and reverence the old school of politics, the secret
caucus, the hand-picked convention, the midnight conference, and the corporation slush-fund.
Poindexter and the insurgent candidates represent the new idea of popular government, of direct responsibil
ity, of frank discussion of political issues and the power of the people to rule their own affairs.
This is an issue in tomorrow's primary election.
These are the issues; these are the only issues. Men will decide or money will decide. If men are more
powerful in Washington than money, the victory will go to Poindexter and the insurgents. If money is more pow
erful inWashington than men, it will go to Burke and the standpatters,

BEST GOLD CROWN, $5
BEST BRIDGE WORK, $5
Drs. Shontz and Wilson
For years have been leaders
in this class of work, special
izing and improving in every
way. If yon are particular
there is only one place.
Why? Because we do not
hire transient dentists. We
practice under our own name
ami not in combination with
any company or association.
In other words, we are by
ourselves and independent
of any faction.
ITow grafting in dentistry
is accomplished, is all done

show you some of the ways.
Say you want a plate, and
want to know the price, and

Of course, they can fit you,
and will show you plates all

Another way is to talk you
into Bridge Work and
Crowns when there is no call
for it at all. We see cases
every day where loose teeth
have been bridged in, and
when they put it in they
didn't expect it to stay over
two years. If they did, it
was because they were just
out of school oi - lack of ex
perience, This is why we
have been harping on this
one subject, and that is to
get your work done by a den
tist that practices dentistry
under his own name, and so
you can hold him personally
responsible for work done,
and you can go back ami
find this same dentist Tf an
trouble arises. You must re
member the dentist who says
his work is always perfect is
a quack. What you want is,
if any of these mistakes show
up, you want to know where
to go to.
Now, if you think these
remarks are hitting the truth
we want you to think of us.
