GRAND JURY DRAWING WAS HONEST.
THE second issue of the new Socialist newspaper says it did
not charge that there was anything "crooked" with the
drawing of the last grand jury. That is tantamount to
an admission that the drawnig was conducted in regular and law
ful manner. However, it is not strange that people had regarded
its first statement that an attorney for one of those whom the
grand jury was called upon to investigate had succeeded in get
ting two brothers on the jury was intended to mean that there
had been "crooked" work. The names of these two men were in
cluded in the jury list among those of . more than 300. Twenty
three grand jurors were selected from the 300. The chances were
as more than twelve to one against any one name on the jury list's
being drawn at a fair and impartial drawing.
However, whether the second statement is regarded as the
withdrawal of a charge or the admission of a mistake, the situa
tion is that no charge of unfaithfulness is laid at the door of
those who drew the grand jury.
Judge W. D. Wood has withdrawn from the Seattle mayor
alty race. This leaves nine candidates from which two will be
selected tomorrow to run at the election that will take place the
first Tuesday in March. Polls of the voters that have been made
by Seattle newspapers and various organizations indicate that
the race for the nominations has developed into a three-cornered
elimination contest among J. D. Trenholme, Austin E. Griffiths
and Hiram C. Gill.
A WORTHY APPOINTMENT.
THE appointment by President Wilson of John F. Henson, of
Douglas, to be postmaster of that city was an excellent se
lection. Mr. Henson is a Western boy who has spent his
whole lifetime on the Pacific coast, and most of it in Alaska. He
possesses all the required qualifications for a good official. He
has ability, industry and integrity. He is a worthy son of worthy
parents. In politics he is a Democrat and the member of a Dem
ocratic family. Those who have known him from his knicker
bocker days know that he will make good as a servant of the
peaople and of the administration.
A movement, originating with busines smen of Portland, to
inaugurate a commission form of government in Oregon, is now
in full swing. It is proposed to select a commission of from 12
to 15 men to exercise the legislative and executive functions of
the State. Those who are advocating the measure believe that
the direct method of legislating through the initiative and refer
endum has made the large legislature unnecessary.
"STROLLER" AND THE GROUND-HOG.
TIE winter is not over. This is official. "Stroller"
White, of the Whitehorse Star, observed in this
office yesterday: "This is ground-hog day, and the
poor little devil cannot see his shadow. He will have
to hole up again for a spell."?Prince Rupert Empire.
The New England originators of the ground-hog theory is
that the little animal stays out and plays that winter is over if
he fails to see his shadow on the second day of February. But
what could one expect of a fellow who has lived all his life in
Florida and Yukon Territory, as "Stroller" White has, to know
about cold climate legends?
The decision of the New York Progressives to go it alone
suggests that Senator Borah and the other "evolutionists" in the
Republican party will not be able to form the coalition that they
hope for this year. Whether they do so ne>t year or not will
depend in some dgree at least upon the size of the vote received
by Progressive candidates next November.
The resignation of another Japanese high official suggests
that the tenure of office is usually more secure in a democracy
than in a country where the people have not the facilities to reg
ister their convictions and desires.
There is now no constitutional government in Mexico.?Pres
ident Woodrow Wilson.
Huerta, Henry Lane Wilson and the Pearsons dissenting as
usual.
