MORE OF THE SEATTLE CONTEST
ONE of the principal features of the recent municipal election
in Seattlie was overlooked in the press dispatches from the
Puget Sound metropolis. That was the defeat of the Grif
fiths' police bill. As a matter of fact, the tight over this law was
the big issue of the campaign. Councilman Austin E. Griffiths -
hail secured the passage through the city council of a bill that cur- ?
tailed the powers of the police in making arrests. It was vetoed J<
by Mayor George F. Cotterill, and passed by the council over the <
veto. The supporters of the mayor secured the necessary signa-|
tures. and the bill was submitted to the people under the charter
provision giving the voters the right of the referendum.
Those favoring the adoption of the bill contended that the po
lice had employed measures in enforcing the laws that were too
drastic and deprived citizens of personal rights. It was alleged
that houses were broken into in violation of the constitution, and
no longer was the old axiom that a "man's home is his castle"
a rule of action. The Griffiths' bill made it a crime for a
policeman to make unlawful arrests or entrances to buildings upon
suspicion that crime would be uncovered by the action. The op
ponents of the measure contended that the placing of criminal re
sponsibility upon the police for making what they 'termed "mis
takes" in making arrests, etc.. would so intimidate the custodians
of peace and good order that the police would naturally become
inethcient. and that crime of all kinds would run riot in the city.
The line-up soon developed into a contest between those that had
favored the election of Mayor George F. Cotterill a year ago arid
those that had supported the former deposed Mayor Hiram C.
Gill. It was the same unremittant war. now more than two de
cades old. between the supporters of "good government" and the
"liberal element." breaking out in a new place. I
The result was a victory for Mayor Cotterill. The Griffiths'
bill was defeated by a close vote, but Councilman Griffiths was
elected by a narrow margin to succeed himself on the council.
Thomas A. Parish, who lead the poll of the councilmanic candi
dates. strongly opposed the Griffiths' bill. He had been a candi
date for mayor a year ago. but was eliminated in the primaries.
Subsequently he supported Mayor Cotterill notwithstanding that
he is a leading Republican and the Mayor one of the most promi
nent Democrats of the Evergreen State.
The war between police and burglars in Tacoma and San
Francisco is becoming more deadly than the common run of Span
ish American rebellions.
If one were to judge from results he would say that the un
lawful procedure of the militant suffragettes of Great Britain
and the spectacular performances of the Atlantic seaboard suffra
gettes of this continent are not so helpful of the cause they pro
fess to serve as has been the dignified and lady-like conduct of
the Western women. Women now vote in every Pacific Coast
State, and in nearly all the Rocky Mountain commonwealths, while
there is but one State east of the Mississippi river where equal
suffrage prevails, and that State is called Western by those of the
Those Sonora "constitutional rebels" are going about the
business of separating Northern from Southern Mexico as if they
intended to succeed.
The activity of the Great Northern Steamship Company in
preparing for the trade that will follow the completion of the Pa
nama canal is just a straw that indicates the beneficient results
that will come to the Pacific Coast from that great work. Lower
transportation charges mean more trade and more trade always
mean more profits.
Whatever might be said of the good taste or lack of good
taste in Delegate Wickersham's using the time of the joint ses- !
sion of the Legislature last night in attacking members of the
body none will question the wisdom of the vote that permitted the ,
Delegate to Congress from proceeding with his address to the end.
NEW YORK. March 10. ? A Wall j
street Reform bill, presented in the!
Legislature, was regarded with suspic- i
ion by the real opponents of stock;

the measure came direct from Gov.
Sul/er. The tlrst belief provoked by
the introduction of the measure was,
that the inspiration for it came from ?
those who hope to prevent any genu-!

islature this session. When it became .
known that Gov. Sulzer favors the bill,
sentiment toward it changed immed
