Scientific experiments with the human cuticle demonstrates the fact that tho shin on your body, when properly tanned, makes the finest and most durable leather. We view these experiments with alarm. Plutocracy has discovered that Americans are a race of curs, and fight is not in them. They have discovered that A mericans live on soup, join Coxey armies, sleep in freight cars, eat carrion and die before they will fight. Plutocracy not only bonds and robs the people but rubs it in on them by turning United States bayonets against them. > These experiments in the way of tanning human hides appear to us j to be the forerunner of a new in dustry. Plutocracy evidently intends to begin shortly the tanning of human hides. Sir George Pullman would look well in a pair of boots made of Debs' hide. John Sherman would shine in a fur-trimmed overcoat made of Senator Stewart's pelt. Carnegie would glisten in gloves made of Burgess McLuckies cuticle. Cleveland could swathe his swine-like proportions in a half dozen hides stripped from the backs of Dave Hill, old Grandma Gor man and the other sugar-tailed j cuckoos We fully expect to see the hides of "organized hungry stomachs" quoted in the market reports along with bull hides aud pig skins. Americans might emulate the ex- j ample of the Latin races to the south of us, who fight at the drop of a hat rather than meekly submit to the indignities of office-holding anarcnists who vote away the lib erties of the people.—The Iload.

ADAMS. of Whatcom County. J. C. VAN PATTEN, of Columbia County. For Supreme Judges: H. L. FORREST, of Thurston County. Smoke 1 smoke! Soup and bonds—why not? Lots of Normalites in town. Next Monday is Labor »lay. How do you like it by this time? And the good times are not here yet. A silver dollor is worth just 100 cents. Public school cemmences next Monday. The Texas democrats are a unit —for office. The political bosses are baiting their hooks. The State Normal School opens next Monday. Too much of Cleveland is worse than not enough. Both old parties are "pulling" prosperity's leg." We had a two full page "pi" in our shop Thursday. Judge Rudkin of Yakima was on the streets Thursday. F. 1). Schnebly went over lo Walla Walla this week. The bosses are busy now planting i their crop of campaign lies. The Middle Irrigation District bonds are ready for signing. It is now in order for the demo crats to want another "chance." The Cleveland brand of democra cy is patronized by Wall street. Gov. Tillman seems to be master of the situation in South Carolina. | It is time the church was getting; on God's side of the labor question. | Put your ballot where it will do | you the most good, not your party. Come to think, there is an over production of rags in this country. W. W. Stone, John Catlin, B. P. Shifflett and Geo. Hornbeok were at North Yakima, this week. Thirty-spven lives lost is the re-J cord 01 the Franklin mine disaster Aug. 24. inquests should be very .;e;iiching in such cases. | Tiie ring are telling around that I they are going to purchase this pa ! per. We know they have been re | sorting to everything that is low [and despicable to accomplish their! ! purpose. This paper was establish ed for the purpose of advocating the principles of reform according to the Populist idea, and not for boodle or ollice, and we propose to contin ue in the same course. We know we are a thorn in the side of the political ringsters and shyster politician,s but that makes . no difference to us. Last Sunday morning E. E. Wa | ger and wife, Will G. Graves and i wife and Jas. Gass and wife return-, l ed from their outing at Galena City, on the Cle El urn river. W. H. Hoskins made a trip over to Wenatchee this week. He re- ■ i ports times pretty quiet over there, ! but says their fruit and melon crop is fine. He says the old politicians over there are getting their eyes I opened and are deserting the old parties like rats from a sinking ship. Had the same effort been put forth to compel the railroads and the Pullman Company to deal just ly with their employes, as was us j sed in calling out the militia to awe the laborers, and break up their organizations, the strike could have been settled without the loss of a single life. But then the corpora tions are 011 top.—lndepenent. The republicans of Ohio are in a~ bad a fix as the Missouri democrats. The latter, in State convention, de clared for free silver and endorsed the Cleveland administration. The former declared for silver and indorsed John Sherman. Poor fellows! They don't know where they are at.—Agitator. Dysart School House Burned. Tuesday evening last about 9 o' clock, the school house in district No. 5, or Dysart district, was burn ed.

There will be several side | shows in connection with the Mu . seum connected with the exhibition bear all expenses. tf In Ellensburg there is published a little weekly paper called the Dawn, of which R- A. Turner is editor. The publication is the or ' gau of the People's party in this county, and from our knowledge of Mr. Turner's fidelity to his par ty and of his struggles to exist and keep his paper going, we are con vinced that he is thorougly honest and conscientious in his political convictions. A remarkable feature of the • Dawn is that its columns are free from the klu-klux uttera*, ■•es, an archistic sentiments and demagog ic thunder in which the great ma jority of Populist papers in this State are wont to indulge. To the contrary, Mr. Turner's arguments in support of his theo ries are timely and temperate, whatever may be his falsity in reasoning, and that he despises the demagogue is shown by his implied contempt for the nomination of Judas Mouthy Ready lor the Su preme bench by the Yakima con vention. Turner, like may others in Kit- Ititas county, could uot swallow such a nausuafcing dose. In the Dawn's presentation of the list of candidates, a black turn ed rule appears in the place where Readj's name should have been printed, a silent rebuke to the con vention for its unwise action. Turner knows Ready, and he further knows that he would be as much out of place on the Supreme bench as his satanic majesty would be 011 the throne of the Master.- - Sentinel, Roslyn, Wash. Prof. J. IT. Morgan and wife re turned Saturday from their trip to Southern California. Two more years of Grover! Just think of it! And the democratic party gave him to us. C. V. Warner and family have returned from the mountains. They got lots of fish and grouse NO. 5.
