«LV.tiriA, WASH. mmi EVENING AIGIST 211. 1902 Republicans in Council The Republican County Convention held in Olympia Theater, last Satur day. was remarkable for two things: the thorough organization of the fac- tion popularly known as the " Scobey 1 ring," and the pliancy of those who have their noses pointed towards the fry pan now sizzling with fervor. Chairman Kreider fulfilled his prom ise by calling tlie body to order 1 promptly at 10 A. M , but the organi- 1 /.crs were ready for him, and Senator Ituth was fairly jumped into the chair, and the ring selection for secretary, C. G. Morris, of Rainier, was elected with out opposition, the minority being under such complete domination. The Senator-Chairman was so anxious to get through with the busi ness " cut and dried " for the occasion that he said he would leave speech making to the permanent chairman, which conveyed a vague intimation that the officers of the convention had not yet been agreed upon, but it was observed that the announcement was made with a reserve-information smile of superior knowledge. General Cavanaugb was the first pawn moved on the board. He wanted four committees, of five each, to be appointed by the chair: One on Cre dentials, another on Permanent Or ganization and Order of Business, one to select delegates to the State conven tion, and last, though not least, a com mittee to report a platform. This mo tion called Mr. Mentzer, of Tenino, to his feet. He moved, as a substitute, that the Committee on Resolutions consist of a member selected by the representative of each precinct. He claimed that the railroad issue was an important matter in which the party was honestly divided, and the fair way was to let the delegates chosen by the people settle the difference. Here the first test of factional strength was manifest, and shown to be overwhelm ingly in favor'of the ring. Mr. Ment zer's motion was voted down, and the Chairman asked for a ten minutes' re cess to enable him to " fix " the com mittees. As by actual count, but three minutes elapsed in the " fixing," it was evident that the type-written liata bad been prepared and that the Chairman was wound up to the Spanish degree of momentum in pushing things to a finish. The personnel of the committees is unimportant, further than the Chair man, who in each instance was a trim mer, tried and true—such old stagers in party manipulation as Schofield, to disfranchise the Sixth ward; disrupt the Bucoda delegation by a change of usage, as unusual as it was revo lutionary, and allow the full conven- tion to nominate a district nominee County Commissioner; John A. Rea, the renowned platform builder, to " straddle the buck "on the railroad issue; Tom Cavanaugh, to see that the Senator-Chairman should retain bis seat, and the new convert," Baldy " Faulkner, to name a true goldbug, monopoly delegation to the State Con vention. The Convention then rested from its labors, an adjournment being taken to one o'clock. Mr. Schofield, on reassembling, re ported a recommendation to make temporary organization permanent, which was done, and in favor of seat ing both delegations from the Sixth ward with half a vote each, doubtless under the impression that splitting votes lessened the blame for snch a summary proceeding. Weir protested and Chaplin explained, but they were up against it, and the committee was sustained by an overwhelming vote. Then an impressive scene followed. The "regular" delegation, with the exception of Mr. Weir, headed by Mr. Chaplin, arose and strode majestically from the ball. The dramatic effect of the exodus was lessened somewhat by the retreat already made of the Bucoda and part of the Tenino delegations without red fire and rolling-thunder effects. Mr. Madge could not resist the impulse to shout after them "'good riddance," which, though somewhat soolhin', was very poor partyism. Allen Weir remained and voted his half vote against the combine. L. B. Faulkner reported that be bad selected J. O'B. Scobey, M. G. Royal, Guy Tilley, A. S. Ruth, 8. A. Madge, T. H. Cavanaugh, Geo. C. Israel, M. Harris, L. R. Cook, C. H. Springer, George M. Savage, D. R. Hughes, Peter McKensie, Stanton Rowell, and Ed. Suiter, for delegates to the State Con vention. They were swallowed with out murmurs, but the wry faces made by some delegates showed that the pill was not a bon-bon, or even sugsr coated. The report of Mr. Rea of the plat form was attended with the usual im pressive mannerisms of the agile plat form builder. His voice was fairly choked with emotion and he trembled like an aspen leaf during its delivery; in fact the type-written page on which tbe heroic words were written fairly danced with tbe enthusiasm imparted by its reader. It of course endorsed McKinley and Rosevelt; no Republi can platform would be complete with out that plank. If the Rough Rider had bis rowels up to the center in the poor old party, the fuglemen would shout hosannah to the frotby-mouthed knight. It declared tbe flag would stay in the Philippines, and for reci procity in Cuba; supported eight hours for labor (rabid buncombe) and an economical administration in public affairs (the same old party " chestnut.") It then favored creating a State tax commission, as a half-way acceptance of tbe popular proposition for a rail- road commission. Mr. Mcntzer sub- mittcd a resolution lor a railroad com mission, as advocated by Governor Mc- Uride, but it was voted down by a poll of 124?, to 171. Nominations wore then made for Representatives, Geo. W. Ilopp and (J. D. King receiving 1281 and 120 votes, respectively, against Asher Sar gent, tlie minority nominee, 17. J. The only other contest was in selection of a candidate for Commissioner in the Third District: R. M. Pay ton receiv ing B.~> votes and Swan Solbeck .">O. All tiic remaining nominations were made by acclamation, and were H. M. Pierce for Commissioner from the First District; Jesse Mills, Sheriff; A. A. Phillips,Treasurer; Win.Nunn,Clerk ; George McKinzie, Auditor; F. C. Ow ing', Prosecuting Attorney; Fred. Brown, School Superintendent; J. F. X. Miller, Assessor; John D. Henry, Surveyor; J. W. Mowell, Coroner, and Hugh Ross, Wreckmaster. After apiiointment of a Central Com mittee and nominations for precinct of ficers, a resolution of thanks was adopt ed to the editor of this paper for his attendance as Peacemaker. The Con vention then adjourned to chew the rag on the street corners, an occupa tion they seem to have inherited from the late lamented pop party. A KEtiuo in Knoxvillc, Teun., has offered to sell himself into voluntary slavery for life for the sum of SI,OOO, and the proposition makes Mr. Cay ton, a colored man who edits the Seattle Republican, say that the man who would sell himself, as well as the pur chaser, should be treated to a coating of tar and feathers. While it is un necessary to discusss the relative free dom and independence of the man who voluntarily sells himself into ser vitude or the stinted laborer for cor porations, it seems remarkable to find a black man who advocates the mob methods of vengeful reform that he has so vigorously condemned in the past. But then mobbing a negro in Massachusetts may have probably re versed the opinion of this very fair representative of an impulsive race. A POINTER FOR OUR CARNIVAL MAN AGEMENT. —Seattle, early in her carni val season, decreed that the " sure thing" games should be suppressed, and that the idiots who assume that the joyful season carries with it a li cense to pelt bystanders with rubber balls, confetti, or other light missiles, should likewise come under the ban. The bunco games were suppressed very much in the way that Carrie Nation placed saloons under subjection and the latter nuisance by the no less sum mary measure of arrest. It may be possible that our peace officers will run up against a like necessity during the Carnival week now soon to begin. OUR foreign possessions have been stirred up by something else besides the interminable war. An earthquake is reported to have occurred on the island of Mindanoa, in which twenty people were killed and much damage done to properly. These disturbances are fortunately not of frequent occur rence, the last previous shock having taken place in 1872, nearly a third of a century ago. THB Central Federated Union have asked the President to call a special session of Congress to take some ac tion for ending the coal strike. The order represents 250,000 workmen and it has the support of other labor organisations. Even Hanna says that the operators are wrong in refusing to arbitrate. THE coal strike seems to become farther from settlement each day, and it need surprise nobody for bloodshed to result from the growing complica tions, at any time. The Railway Brotherhood are likewise about to de mand an increase of wage-rates for trainmen and carpenters. m » ■■ THE Weyerhauser timber syndicate have bought almost an equal area of land in Pierce county as in Thurston. The deeds filed this week embrace nearly 90,000 acres, involving a con sideration of nearly half a million dollars, or to be exact 9498,746. • #» THE Republican Convention of Cal ifornia has nominated George C. Par dee, of Oakland, for Governor. This is virtually a defeat for Gage, as his sup port only went to the victorious candi date after exhausting all endeavor for himself. A REDUCTION of freight rates in both lumber and shingles to the East, fol lows up the philanthropic work of the railroads for the masses. Verily, they are in it for " results," as Capt. Percival used to say. MRS. Waggner's claim for a reward for finding the body of David Merrill, the Oregon outlaw who escaped with Tracy, has been disallowed by Secre tary of State Dunbar, of Oregon. ■ Ml IT is reported that the German press style King Edward a "fat old fool," doubtless forgetting for the moment that obesity is the prevailing charac teristic of Deitcher individuality. ■ ■ • THE Weyerhauser company has sup plemented its large purchases in this and Pierce counties by nearly 20,000 acres of timber land, in Snohomish county, paying for it 946,527. THE Western Washington Women's Christian Temperance Union will be held at Centralis, from the sth to the 9th of September. ■ ■ LET US hope that the next ulti matum aimed at the Sultan of Turkey by our Venerable Uncle, will hit the mark. THE Saratoga race bets on the per formance of horses foots up during a lively sporting season 92,000,000 per day. How Easy to Delude. Isn't it strange that the man of toil can be so easily placated by patri cian favor. The other day Jim Hill, and his chums Mellen and Koh ler, all Presidents of railroad com panies, rubbed elbows with the wheat growers of Eastern Washington and lof how easily the barriers to love and harmony were removed. Senator Hanna, the other day, spoke to 10,000 people, in Ohio, on the relative inter ests of " Labor and Capital,"and made the man of toil, it is said, fairly howl with delight over the many pleasant things lie said afxuit the dignity and rights of labor. Cannot the man of toil profit from the teachings of experience? Should lie believe the professions of men whose whole life-history gives the lie to present professions made at a time when nothing short of downright du plicity can save the cormorants from the vengeance of an outraged people? Is there not a trend of logic to lie ob served from circumstances, time and place, which lead to the irresistible con clusion that it is but another attempt to "divide and conquer"? HANNA WILL BE A CANDIDATE—A Washington dispatch of a late date says that Hanna's friends admit that from this time on he may be regarded as a candidate for the Republican nom ination for President in 1904. It is now admitted that he has been secretly whetting his knife on all opportunities for taking Teddy's scalp, and that his denials have only been influenced by a fear of premature occupation of the field. Lines are rapidly closing for a contest between himself and the Presi dent. The late announcement of Piatt that New England is solid for Roosevelt has hastened somewhat the closing of the issue. THE President has begun his" Swing Around the Circle," with the example and its blighting consequences of Andy Johnson's exploit in that line still fresh in the memory. But then President Johnson did not possess Teddy's "strenuosity" to buoy him up amid the sea of perplexities he encoun tered when he started out as school master to the American people. By the way, how does Mr. Roosevelt square himself with the order to his appoin tees to avoid " pernicious activity" in party affairs? TRACY'S two horses are on exhibition at Spokane, and it is said that curio hunters have despoiled tbem of tufts of hair from mane and tail until the poor animals look liko the hairless jackass attributed to Barnum, as a freak that went along with the woolly horse. It seems strange that people can be afflicted with such a morbid impulse to possess anything that has belonged to a man whose hands were stained with human blood. Poor frail humanity is a puzzle, at best. »•» ■ REV. John Hkyles was arrested in New Orleans, a few days ago, charged with having at least five wives, two of whom are in this State. He is a Christian minister, only 33 years of age, and a few weeks ago he eloped with Miss Theresa Whetstone, a daugh ter of a member of the State Legisla ture. This led to an investigation and his arrest for bigamy. A STATE Middle-oMhe-Road Popu list Convention was held a few days ago at Topeka, Ks., at which but seven delegates turned up. Even this small attendance did not deter them from putting up a State ticket, which was sent with platform to the committee men of the State to be voted upon ac cording to " initiative" and " referen dum" methods. PROF. Trevor Kiucaid, naturalist of the State University, is preparing a book of bis labors in Alaska, which it is surmised will create a sensation from the wide field it afforded for orig inal discovery. Mr. K. says tiiat he has added to the book of knowledge over 200 distinct species of insects, that have their habitat only in high lat itudes. IT is not much of a compliment to the brain-force of the would-be Vere de Veres of New York's 400, that they tumblo over each other to do honer to the visit of an American-boin Duchess to this country. How is it possible to keep down an ambition to wed foreign titles when such an example is af forded. Miss ANNA Sox was chosen Secretary of the Young People's Christian Temper ance Union in National Convention at Tacoma.

Yes, sock it to auybody who med dles with the hose-reel. AN advance on the price of fir logs baa been agreed upon by the loggers of the Gray's Harbor country. This will place the rate at $5.50 per thousand. The price of cedar and spruce logs was not advanced, the present rate being $8 for the former and $7.50 for spruce. IT is now denied that the Presiden tial " swing" will bring Mr. Roosevelt to this Coast next Winter, as had been promised the faithful, but it is confi dently promised that he will reach this part of the periphery of the circle sometime next Spring. A NEW use to which wireless teleg raphy Is to be placed is to determine longitude. In a late test at a Marconi station on Nantucket Island, the tick ing of a chronometer was transmitted over a space of fifty miles. IT is said that Patrick Henry Win ston advocates paying the Tracy re ward to the desperado's widow. Well, well; guess the report of P. H.'s men tal condition has not been misstated, after all. IT may seem passing belief, but Lon-; don experts in the meat trade assert positively that the prices of beef in' London, Liverpool and Manchester are controlled by the American beef trust. Ten years ago the Americans sold through English salesmen. Now | fourteen of the Icadiug stalls are occu pied by American houses, who abso j lutely control the price of beef. They meet daily to fix the rate. The com bine has prevented the English from importing live cattle bv taking practi cally all the available freight space on steamships from sources of supply for six and twelve months time. They will run this space uuladen rather than to allow opposing firms to use it. The conditions in the English prov inces are similar. The only relief may be obtained through re-opening shipments from Argentine, which are now prohibited from the foot and mouth disease, peculiar to cattle. It is expected in London that meat will attnin a record price before winter. A FANATICAL POLlCY. —Petersburg, Va., has adopted police regulations which flavor somewhat of the " Blue Laws" supposed to he indigenous to the soil of the Blue Mountain State. The Common Council have proscribed the sale of everything, except medi cines, on Sunday. The account says that it includes even newspapers, so we are positive that food for the brain it denied, although nothing is said, except by inference, of food for the stomach. The presumption is, there fore, on facts submitted by a no less authority than the N. Y. World, that the people of Petersburg are to fast on the " Seventh day," commonly known as the first day of the week- Sunday. It will thus he seen that the mind of man is erratic—that as direc tor of municipalities some are as prone lo inaugurate a too tight-closed policy as others are to establish a too wide open plan. TIIE shortage on the salmon pack this year, at a time when the trusts have placed canned beef on the top shelf, eeems peculiarly unfortunate to those so bountifully supplied with dinner pails by the g. o. p., who now insist that they shall hold only wind pudding. There seems to be a con certed plan on the part of greedy mo nopolists to fry the last drop of fat oqt of poor emaciated Labor. THEML Vernon Argui expressed a truth in vigorous simile when it said that " Official patronage is the oil used to lubricate political machines," and the fact was never more amply demon strated than in the theater Saturday when the struggle was going on to get hold of the oil-can. Soon as the " Scobey ring" got a firm grasp of it, however, everything moved " slick as grease." THE War Department has deprived the army of much sentiment by sub stituting the brownish yellow uniforms for the blue. That the color has been adopted for " inconspicuity," in a time of profound peace, does not seem to be a sufficient reason for substituting a color that is of necessity so much flouted in the public eye that is so much at variance with good taste. J ('STICK Oliver Wendell Holmes, lately appointed to the U. 8. Supreme bench, is a son of the poet whose wit made the name known the world over. He has served with distinguished ability as Chief Justice of Massachu setts a score or more of years. He is, 61 years of age and a veteran of the civil war. IF the German custom of burying automobiles beside the people they have killed is imported td this conntry, there will be enough resurrectionists to people the country with ghosts of pneumatic vehicles for this generation, at least. HOPS reached 20 cents a pound at Tacoma this week. Some growers are holding for forty centa. ANOTHER street car strike is threat ened in Chicago. Increase of wages is the object demanded.

Miles to Head the Grand Army Procession, Despite Teddy's Wishes—A Billion and Sixty- Three Million Dollars " Appropriated" By the First Session of the 57th Congress The Next Session Will Make the Total Ex ceed Two Billions Democratic Prospects Good in Utah—Teddy and His Cabinet Will " Box the Compass" on Prevailing Issues. (From our regular correspondent.) WASHINGTON, Aug. 21,1902. The echoes «»f the unsavory Phil lipine transport scandal have hardly died away, but ano'her is ready to take its place. This time it concerns the lighter system at Manila. As may be known, it is necessary to transfer goods for Mauila to lighters, which, in turn, land them at the wharves and warehouses. These lighters are em ployed by the quartermaster in charge and are paid at a given rate per trip, the rate being based on their tonnage capacity. When the situation first became known, the officials of the Treasury Department demanded that a register he furnished them showing the names, speed and capacity of the lighters. Since theD, the Treasury officials have apparently paid no atten tion to the disbursements made for lightering purposes by the array quar termasters and no more than was ne cessary was revealed by the War De partment. Recently, however, the Treasury Department, availing itself of the figures already furnished it and the reports of the quartermasters as filed monthly with the Auditor for the War Department, has been making some comparisons which have proved the old adage that "comparisons are odious." The amounts paid out for freight far exceed the capacity of the lighters, tonnage and speed taken into consideration, and the Auditor has de manded an explanation of the discrep ancy. Secretary Root is in Europe in blissful ignorance of the discoveries of the Auditor and until he returns it is not probable that any of his subordi nates will dare to make a statement but, in the meantime, a secret investi gation will be made and possibly a scapegoat will he selected. The determination of the Grand Army of the Republic to invite Gen eral Miles to head their grand parade at the encampment to be held in Washington next October, is a source of serious annoyance to the friends of the President. Of course, General Miles is the most distinguished mem ber of the G. A. R. lie is the most noted survivor of the Civil war, since Grant, Sherman, Sheridan and a num ber of others have passed away. Com ing from the people, without the aid of a West Point education, General Miles has attained the highest rank in the army and that, together with the fact that he served shoulder to shoul der with the men of '6O-'65, makes bim dear to the G. A. R., but he is in disgrace with tbe administration. Col onel-President Roosevelt has had occa sion to scold him and would have re tired bim had not an influential dele gation of Senators and Representatives gone to the White House and threat ened to blockade all legislation recom mended by the President if he did; and, being in the black books of Col onel-President Roosevelt, he has no right to occnpy a position of honor or importance in the G. A. R. parade, and especially in Washington. It is even hinted that if the General accepts the invitation tbe Colouel-Commander-in- Cbief will prolong his stay in the West so that he will not be in Washington on the day of the great procession, but the time is still distant and it is proba ble that his better advised friends will not alllow him to so seriously affront tbe veterans during tbe time they are guests in the nation's capital. s The official figures of the last session of Congress have at Inst been issued by the clerks of the Appropriation committees of the Senate and the House. They show that the receot session appropriated the stupendous sum of 91,063,335,961.65. Equal lav ishness at the next session will make tbe total appropriations of tbe Fifty seventh Congress aggregate more than I two billion dollars. Representative Livingston, the ranking Democratic member of the Appropriations com mittee of the House, who furnished the estimate made in these letters when Congress adjourned, placed the total at f1,0&9,577,052, but it will be seen that even he underestimated the extravagance of the session. It will be remembered that at tbe same time Mr. Livingston gave the figures for the last Congress under Democratic con trol and that they aggregated but 9550,- 000,000. Better evidence of Republi can liberality, with the funds of the people, could not be asked for. The appropriations of the first session of the Fifty-seventh Congress exceed those of the first session of the Fifty sixth Congress by 970,285,920.56. Un der these circumstances it is not sur prising that the Treasury surplus is fast disappearing. The reports received in Washington from the State of Utah are much more encouraging than they were some time agd and it is apparent that Senator Rawlins has been doing some excel lent work for the party and for his seat in the Senate. The absolute confi dence expressed in tbe Utah situation by tbe Republicans early this summer, is a thing of the past and they now conceed that there are excellent chances for a return of Mr. Rawlins to the Benate and are begging tbe Con gressional Campaign Committee to come to tbeir assistance. Tbe reports received here indicate that Perry S. Heath, who, as editor of one of the most influential papers in the State, was expected to accomplish Senator Rawlin's defeat and carry the State for his party has sacrificed bis influence to bis amhition. His undignified struggle to succeed Senator Rawlins has lost him tbe respect of the better class of tbe people of tbe State, and not only has he ruined bis own chances of election to the Senate but he hss seriously injured the prospects of his party and has probably insured the return of Senator Rawlins. Tbe news is received with the utmost satisfac tion by the Democrats in Washington who recognise in Senator Rawlins an able exponent of Democratic princi ples and a valuable representative of the party in the Senate. The Freaident ia reported to have arranged hia ahare of the coming cam paign to his entire aatiafaction. He will go before the people and advocate Cuban reciprocity. Secretary Shaw baa been detailed to cover the tariff iasue, Secretary Boot will be sent out to defend tbe army and the Philippine policy and Attorney General Knox is expected lo sati-fy the inquiring voter on the trust question. If the Presi dent is successful in carrying out this programme it will he veritably a stren- I nous campaign. DKM. STATE NEWS. Briel Summary of News Gathered from All Parts of the State. Peter Nelson was shot and killed at Pasco, Sunday night, and robbed of sls by two unknown men. Charles M. Wyman, one of the lead ing attorneys ot Whitman county, died at Colfax Monday, of typhoid fever. Work on the new electric light plant building at Vancouver is being rapidly pushed forward. It will cost in the neighborhood of $50,000. Mrs. W. L. Church, one of the old settlers and known all over Clallam county, died at the home of her sister, Mrs. Gillespie, at Blaine, Tuesday. James J. Healey, a lineman, fell from the top of a pole at Tacoma, Monday, and escaped doath only by a miracle. Ho escaped with a broken wrist and sprained ankle. Judge Neterer at Whatcom, Mon day, overruled the motion for a new trial for H. St. John Dix and sen tenced him to ten years in the peni tentiary, the limit under the laws of tbia State for bank-wrecking. Wm. Bowman and Stella Bowman, his wife, both colored, robbed S. H. Stuart of $137 at Seattle, last Satur day. Stella Bowman is held on sl,- 000 bail and her husband, who is charged with beiug an accomplice, is held for SSOO. Mrs. Henry Blackman, aged 19, accidentally shot herself while play ing with a loaded riHe at Walla Walla, Monday evening. She did not know the weapon was loaded. The bullet entered just above the heart and lodged in the body. All the Gray's Harbor loggers met at Aberdeen Monday and decided to advance the price of logs. It is under stood that the price was fixed at $5.50, an increase of 75 cents per 1,000, but the loggers agreed not to make known their action at the present time. The town of Monroe was terrorized Monday by a man named Clemens, who stole a 30-30 rifle and then began holding up people. The proprietor of the Pearsall hotel finally arrived on the scene and took several shots at the desperado with a revolver, after which the man escaped to the woods. At Centralis, Monday, Mrs. Margaret F. Sprague was instantly killed by tbe south-bound Northern Pacific train. She was crossing the track on tbe way to visit a friend when the train struck her. There is a small embankment at the place where the accident oc curred, and it is supposed that the woman did not see or hear the train until it was too late. James Morris, Corporal Twenty sixth company, Coast Artillery, was picked up in an open boat, 20 miles from Port Townsend, Sunday moruing, in the Straits by the outward bound steamer Valencia and taken back to Port Townsend, where he died that afternoon from his terrible experience in a boat without oars. He was on his way to Fort Flagler, when he was caught in the tiderip which carried him out to sea. A special dispatch to the Oreponian, dated Albany, Or., the 23d inst., says: Roy Mitchell, formerly of Olympia, Wash., was to-day held by Justice Humphrey under $250 bonds to await tbe action of the Circuit Court on the charge of tbe larceny of 21 razors and other barber's utensils, from the Com bination shop at this city yesterday morning. He was arrested last night at Jefferson by Constable Jones with the outfit in bis possession. The west-bound Northern Pacific train was held up 65 miles east of Spo kane, at 11 o'clock Monday night. The rohbers, of whom there were seven, forced the engineer to stop the train, while they uncoupled the bag gage car. Then they compelled the engineer, at the point of a revolver, to pull up the track about three miles further, where they tried to wreck the baggage car with dynamite. The ex plosive failed to work for some un known cause, and, after spending 15 minutes with the car, the robbers de camped, allowing the engineer to go back to the train with his engine. Two other thugs had guarded the train, keeping tlie passengers insideby firing revolvers along the sides. No attempt was made to molest the pas sengers, and when the engine went back the other robbers left, and the train proceeded to Spokane. The train was heavily loaded. A PHOTOGRAPHIC trust is said to be under the procers of development, but it won't count for much—it is a sort of " negative" proposition you know. OASTOZIXA.
