«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.

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

AN advance on the price of fir logs
baa been agreed upon by the loggers of
the Gray's Harbor country. This will

The price of cedar and spruce logs was

$8 for the former and $7.50 for spruce.
IT is now denied that the Presiden
tial " swing" will bring Mr. Roosevelt

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

ston advocates paying the Tracy re

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.

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

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

the fact was never more amply demon
strated than in the theater Saturday

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.

NOW IT IS LIGHTERS
THAT HAVE IN THEIR "GRAFT"
ON THE GOVERNMENT.
An Annex to the Transport Scandal Gen.
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.

train was held up 65 miles east of Spo
kane, at 11 o'clock Monday night.

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.
