'lt's the Water * from our artesian springs) Tin: WASHINGTON STANDARD, AUGUST 21, 1014 SENATORIAL FIGHT BRISK Candidate.'*' Headquarter* in Seattle lltis> —Todd Reported Gaining. The campaign for the Democratic nomination tor i'nited States senator is taking definite shai>e with ttie pri mar.es only three weeks away. Three of the candidates have established headquarters in Seattle. Hugh C. Todd has his at Lyon building, while the Cotterill headquarters are in the same building and the Turner headquarters nearby. Black has no headquarters in Seattle. Todd's headquarters appear to be mighty busy and his campaign has taken on renewed vigor and strength within the last week. With three stenographers and typewriters busy and two assistant managers, all vol unteer workers, Todd is conducting what is said to be the most aggres sive campaign of any of the candi dates. Todd's friends claim there is a sentiment going over the state that he is more acceptable to all of the Democrats than any of the other candidates, and that consequently he is the most available candidate for the Democrats to nominate because he is the one that is sure to unite the party behind him if the Democrats vote for him on September 8. One evidence that Todd is gaining ground faster than any other candi date is the fact that last week twenty women gathered in his campaign headquarters and started volunteer •jrecinct work among the women vot ers of Seattle. TOURS DISTRICT TO PROMOTE CANDIDACY (Continued from page 1.) ropean war, would have made this age a memorable one In the political annals of our country? Three out of every four persons In Southwestern Washington believe in the president and his policies, but at the same time this district has representing it in Washington a man who is bitterly fighting the president and his poli cies. Sound Judgment and a normal vision suggest that we be represent ed in congress by a man whose poli tical creed gibes with that of the administration. "Hereafter it will be more to be an American than it ever has been heretofore. The prostration of the great first-class powers of Europe by this war means that the United States will gain a lead over them that will place this country in a class wholly by Itself. We will do the trading of the world. We will be the bankers of the world. Our ideas will be the ideas that will eventually form and mold a new, world-wide nationalism. New dispensations will take form and back of them will be the American mind.. As the inven tions of the American people have in the past hundred years transformed and revolutionized the utilities of the world, so the ideals of the American people will, during this centhry. transform and revolutionize the ideas, the opinions, the angles of j vision of the races of the earth. We [work consciously, and we influence ! enormously. Urges Support of Wilson. "Never in history have we needed a great leader more and not in hiß tory have we had a more genuine, a more direct, resourceful and capable man than President Wilson. Shall this district stand behind this man, or shall we send a man to Washing ton to light him as our present rep resentative is doing? Is anything gained by sending a man there who finds his own political prejudices BO dominating him that he cannot har monize with the administration on any plans for the upbuilding of the new and growing communities of Southwestern Washington?"
