(Ellensburg Democrat.) The recent experience in securing desirable men as candidates for the different Btate and county offices has shown the weakness of the present primary law as a means of securing desirable candidates. While the old convention plan had its faults, as a rule party conventions were com pelled to nominate their best men, and candidates nominated by conven tion felt that they had the backing of an organization behind them, and they were responsible to the organi zation which chose them. The pri mary law has not worked out as its promoters hoped it would. Instead of it bringing out the best men for office, it has the tendency to bring out a multitude of candidates of me diocre ability, who feel responsible to no party or organization. And in stead of its giving every man an equal chance, it has made it next to impossible for a poor man to become a candidate and make the campaign necessary to any hope of success. The primary law should be amend ed, and if we are to continue using the primary as a means of selecting candidates, there should be at least a preliminary convention that would select a limited number of candidates for each office, who would have the endorsement and backing of their party, and who would feel their re sponsibility to the organization to which they belonged. The coming legislature could well put in its time in either repealing, or amending a number of laws which in their pres ent condition are a farce rather than in enacting into law any of the many fool measures which have been pro posed. This state along with Oregon and California has gone the limit in freak legislation, and the people are beginning to see that many of these laws while beautiful in theory, are absolutely impracticable in practice. • • • • Hete it is—He's Seen It! (Sumner Index.) The tight skirt, says an exchange, is passing. Which is too true. One passed the window a moment ago, through which we saw a wart on the left hind leg of a perfectly strange lady. That does seem a little infor mal even in these rapid times. In our grandmother's day no lady would show the wart of the southwest quar ter of the east half of section four, range six to a gentleman without at least the formality of an introduc tion. But now—we are going some. • • • • Herein a Statement of Facta. (Skagit Co. Times.) We learn that Frank E. Hart, well known in this city, has purchased the Arlington Chronicle, and took control of the paper this week. The Chronicle was started in that city some three years ago and is said to be fairly well equipped as far as material is con cerned. He is an old newspaper man and is a good rustler, and will no doubt make an excellent paper of the Chronicle. Arlington is like the most of the towns on this coast—it has two newspapers, and about busi ness enough for one. Where you find this condition you look around and will And it is brought about by one of two reasonß. The first and worst element in this business is the office seeker with a little money, who wants to air some of his "isms" or roast some individual, or defeat a given idea. The next is the fellow who has proven a failure at every thing else, then breaks into the news paper business. The school teacher and the legal profession have fur nished more newspaper men than all the rest of the avocations combined, and 13 times out of 12 they go broke eventually and knock the dickens out of the business for some one that has gained some knowledge before mak ing an investment. This is why the most of the towns are overburdened with newspapers, and not from the point of good business Judgment. • « • • Advises Vote Against All Bills. (Asotin Co. Sentinel.) With the long list of initiative measures that are to be voted upon at the November election, there is one, above all others, that should be swatted good and hard, and that is the eight-hour law. It would work a hardship on the farmer, the business man, the woman in the household, in fact in every industry that has to depend on the employment of labor. A contractor who pays his men by the hour and works nine or ten hours per day, could only work his men eight hours if the measure carries. A merchant would practically be compelled to run a double shift of clerks. The farmer, how much labor would he be compelled to employ? Imagine a farmer only working eight hours a day, where would he get off? All this freak legislation should be THE WASHINGTON STANDARD, AUGUST 21, 1914, voted against good and strong. Don't fail to vote on the proposition, for if you neglect to do so, on the ground that you are not familiar with the measure, that is virtually a half-vote in favor of the proposition. As to these initiative measures, and there are quite a number of them, where you are not sure about them,the safe and sane way to deal with them, is vote "no" against all of them. * • • • The Apples, James—Quick! (Colfax Commoner.) Mother Eve was nude until the apple episode, but when she ate the apple a change for the better took place. Judging from the kinds of dresses the women are wearing now adays, it's time to pass the apples again.

TRAVEL IN CATTLE TRAINS. Americans Stranded in Europe Reach Safety After Hardships. LONDON, August 21.—After trav eling for exactly a week in their flight from the country through Switzer land and France, a large party of Americans and Englishmen and wo men reached London last Saturday night. Worn from lack of sleep; without baggage or funds, they strag gled to their homes or to the Ameri can embassy where the citizens of the United States stormed upon Am bassador Page. Regardless of their wealth or so cial position, men and women alike were forced to travel upon open cat tle trucks through France. Pouring rains drenched the refugees. But lit tle protection could be afforded the women in the party, and day and night they bumped along on the cat tle trains, glad to have any sort of transportation from the country. Walter Tarpley, a logger employed at Wilson Brothers camp near Inde pendence, was instantly killed Wed nesday when run over by a log, ac cording to information received in Olympia. v "I-X* -I* 'I-i* -I—l- ■ I THE NATIONAL CAPITAL | 1 ?! f Events of Interest front the Seat ■ • £ of Government. ! I T t • J BY J. E. JONES. . «• j v • • * The Difference in Whose Ox is Gored. Many people who cannot under stand the war enthusiasm in the dif ferent European countries ought to refresh their memories regarding their own war of "watchful waiting time." Very recently the United States was ablaze with enthusiasm for war and the government held it off with difficulty. On a former oc casion President McKinley stood as a check to this same war spirit and on ly let loose the guns of battle when our justification to take up arms against the enemy had been fully es tablished. Americans who are won dering whether Europe has gone crazy should recall their own excit ed mental condition when the ques tion of war or peace confronted the United States. Our Army and Navy. Contracts have been assigned for three new dreadnaughts for the United States navy. These new in struments of warfare will be 41 feet longer and of 4500 tons greater dls- : placement than any now In the Unit ed States service. It may be that be fore Europe gets through the ques tion of what country has the greatest navy will be settled, as our chances for first place are very good. About. the same time that the contracts were let for the new dreadnaughts, Major General Leonard Wood submitted his annual report to the secretary of war. It shows that the actual strength of the army 1b 4,306 officers and 80,000 enlisted men scattered over the world. The general declares that to maintain this force in the United States for even a small expedition in police work of the department it is .vitally Important that the regular ar- ' my be substantially increased. The Reclamation Fund. A fund of about $80,000,000 has j been accumulated* through the sale of public lands which under the old law is In the hands of the interior de partment for expenditure in recla mat ion projects without congression- ; al limitations. Congress recently be- 1 came somewhat jealous of this meth- ! od of expenditure and the houße pro vided that all expenditures in future should be limited to appropriations made from the reclamation funds by congress. Representatives from pub lic landß states have vigorously op posed such a change, but the power ful Democratic leader Underwood with his Southern Democrats, are having their own way. Naval Lines fo South America. The probabilities are that the United States will carry out the plan suggested by the secretary of the navy and establish naval lines to car ry mails, passengers, and freight to South America. Several weeks ago Senator Weeks introduced a bill to this effect and it has recently passed the senate. Western Roads After More Coin. Increases in freight rates on all the railways west of the Mississippi river are being prepared (or submission to the interstate commerce commission. Managers of the Western lines, ac cording to the best information in official circles, are prepared to con tend that they need more revenue to meet the increasing expenses of .oper ation and to point out that their lines are in even greater need of re lief than the Eastern lines because of necessarily longer hauls and less density of population. The Republican Chairman. As the fall elections grow nearer, it is evident that there is to be a spirited contest in every part of the United States where there is a "fighting chance" to turn the for tunes of battle one way or the other. Naturally the South is undisputed Democratic territory, and although the Democrats have a big majority in congress at the present time, the members of that party who are man aging political affairs have rather marveled at the strategic skill dis played by the new chairman of the Republican congressional committee. It has developed that the minority members of the house had a definite idea of what they were doing when they chose Congressman Frank P. Woods of lowa to conduct their cam paign. Mr. Woods is a quiet politi- cal worker and now that the cam paign is on the Democrats are awak ening to the fact that while they sup- j posed nothing was being done Chair-; man Woods has been building bon- 1 fires under them and they are there fore put to the necessity of bestirring themselves in order to escape the conflagration. Woods has dispensed | with all the brass bands and if the j gains that the Republicans confident- j ly predict are realized in the Novem ber elections, then the reason will be because of the new methods produced by the lowa political leader.
