THIS is Decoration Day. a day that
han been dedicated by law In
soino States and by common
consent everywhere that Americans
live to those who have served in the
army or navy of the Nation and who
have pasaed from this vale of tears in
to the great Eternity. However, gen
erally shaking, it is associated in the
public mind with those who fought to
preserve the Union in the Civil War.
It is meet that on at least one day
of the year business houses should
close and people should consider those
who have either given or risked their
lives fearlessly for our country. There
are few left among the living of the
Grand Army established for all time
in that court in the affairs of men?the
arbitration of arms?that the United
States shall remain for all time one
and (inseparable. And it should be the
purpose of every citizen today, in ad
dition to paying tribute to the dead of
tho Nation, to make special effort to
express In some way his appreciation
of the services that have been ren
dered by the living remnant of that
great army of men who served the Na
tion when it sorely needed their ser
It is a pleasant thought today that
there Is 110 place in the Nation where
the occasion is not one that is dedicat
ed equally to those Americans who
fought on both sides of tho great
American war. In the North, those
who won* the gray are given place
alongside those who wore the blue,
and In the South, on their Memorial
Day, the foes of '61-?5 are not forgot

INCONSISTENCY IN HIGH PLACES
IT IS a strange thing how people
engaged In business adopt
methods that have t>een proved
: to be sound In the conduct of their
own matters. yet condemn the same
methods when applied to the govern
ment. There is yet a disposition on
the part of big business men to op
pose at every opportunity the applica
tion of the initiative and referendum
. to the public business, yet we see
them adopting the principle Involved
:n matters that concern their own af
fairs. For instance, the Seattle Cham
ber of Commerce Record of recent
date contains a .review of a proposi
I tion that has been submitted by the
United States Chamber of Commerce
to a referendum vote of the various
local commercial organizations which
make up the greater organization. Not
only that, but the proposition is la
belled "Referendum No. 7," thus
strongly suggesting the "seven sis
ters" which It Is proposed to submit
to the voters of Washington State and
of which members of the Seattle
| Chamber of Commerce complain so
