Bluntly sp. aking, there is no good reason why Stanton Warhurton should lie running lor con gress in this district —the voters settled that two years ago after they had given him one term in congress. That one term was enough for th m. They told him plainly they wanted no more of him. But Warhurton is the Bull Moose candidate, in s it > of this repudiation two years ago, and he is promising anything and everything in the hope of winning. Without taking into consideration most of the claims he is putting forth, we do call your particular attention to the audacity with which he goes before the people of this district and t- lis then, he will support Wilson. Warburtou knows better than that, tor War burton knows that when he gets to congress, if by any lamentable circumstance he should get there, lie will have to "train" with the few Bull Moosers he will find there, and the records of the sessions since Wilson has been president will ■how that the Republicans have hardly exceeded the Progressives in fighting this country's presi dent, or, to put it another way, that the Progres sives have fought Wilson as hard as have any of his political opponents. There have been Repub licans here and there who have supported some of the president's progressive legislation; that is more than can be said of the Progressives though the latter wore pledged to the identical legislation the president advocated. Warburton, in other words, will have to "stand hitched" against Wilson if he should happen to be chosen to represent this district and he knows it. yet knowing it, he has the audacity to try to tell tlit people of this district he will support Wilson. He realizes Wilson's popularity and he is trying to make political capital out of it. We trust that the people of this district will "see through" Warburton's game, (he game of promising anything to win. There is no excuse for him, no excuse in fact for the election of any Progressive in this state this fall. The issue is clean-cut between the two old parties. If you believe in Wilson you will vote for Charles Drury; if you do not. if you want to help tie Wilson's hands in this critical period of the world's history, you will vote for Johnson, the man who has been fighting him for the last two years. The same applies to Judge Blhck, the Democratic candidate for United States senator, and to Jones, who is seeking re-election. Hanson, the Bull Moose, de serves no consideration, even if he personally were fit for the place. It is either Drury or Johnson, Black or Jones. If you 1 i lieve in Wilson you will vote for Drury and Black. THOSE LITTLE PINK PAMPHLETS Have you read your little pink pamphlet, that little booklet the secretary of state is sending to every registered voter, containing the arguments pro and eon on the various initiative measures? Do you expect to read it ? Most certainly you should; most likely you won't, though, unless you sit down right now and do it. for the time is mighty short between now and November 3 when you have to decide how you are going to vote on those measures. This is our first experience with the initiative; if we are to be able to judge the value of it, to test ir thoroughly and rightly, we must study those bills so a* to be able to vote on .I:: \V; -II N.

W,st ove ,nv liny Republicans or Ihmiocrats? Can t•; i y ht» manipulated ? Yon lanirli, of course— I 1; re are some Republicans around Imre who have he n trying to manipulate Miiyor Mottnian for the last two years, and they have not succeeded yet. Anybody who knows anything about the Thurston County Taxpayers' league knows that tii' oharg made by the Republican County Cam paign committee last week that it had been manip ulated by Democrats, is ridiculous, tor he knows its leading spirits have been the prominent Re publicans of the city and county and not the Democrats. It may be, too, that the fact Repub licans were instrumental in its formation and are now its chief supporters, throws some light on what th" Republicans themselves think about the way the county's affairs have been managed. It is interesting, anyhow, in the light of what is hap pening. Last Saturday's meeting, even though it was small, has put the Taxpayers' league on a perma n nt basis, and a basis in which partisan politics plays no part, a basis in which nothing hut hon esty, efficiency and economy in the administration of public affairs, will count. We need such an organization in this county and we a." 1 mighty lucky In have it. THE SUPREME COURT JUDGES. We take it that the experience of the recent primaries, when one of the ablest of the supreme court justices was defeated for re-nomination, has awakened the people of this state to a realization that they must rise to defeat a political element in this state which is seeking to disrupt the supreme court by the defeat also of Justice Crow and Chadwick. The nature of the campaign that is being made against these justices is cowardly and dastardly and shows too well t'.ie character of the candidates the element that is making that campaign is supporting. That should be suffi cient warning to us that we want no such men in the highest court of our state. The long, and honorable and upright service given the people of this state by Justices Crow and Chadwick would entitle them to re-election even if they were opposed bv men of their same high ability, integrity and honor. Consequently when they are opposed by the candidates and the influences that are seeking to defeat them, no thinking person should hesitate one instant to vote for them. We want men, not puppets, on the supreme bench of this state, and we will have them if we re-elect Justices Crow and Chadwick. E. N. Steele, the Non-Partisan candidate for justice of the peace in the Olympia precinct, is an attorney; his opponent is not. If that were the only argument in Steele's favor, it should insure his election, for this precinct is paying for the services of an attorney and is not getting them, is paying for the competency that comes from training and practice in the law, but is not receiv ing it. There are many things constantly arising in a justice court which a lawyer could handle with greater dispatch, greater competency and greater saving to the people who pay the bills, than can a layman. It would seem the part of good wisdom, therefore, to elect Steele to that position. Governor Lister's recent declaration that the initiative is intended only "as an emergency method to he applied when the voters find that a legislature will not respond to a very general demand on the part of the citizens", will strike a responsive chord in every thinking person, we believe. Ilis particular advice against the so called "first aid" hill is direct and to the point, for here is a subject that most certainly should not he handled until after the most careful study and investigation, as lie says, and he proposes to appoint a commission to conduct such an inquiry, for lm wants to see such a law enacted when the proper basis for it is determined. This week is "Apple Week", by virtue of a proclamation of Governor Lister, and all over the state the people have been paying homage to this greatest of Washington's fruits. Have you bought your box of apples yet? We pause to remark that politics are getting some lively hereabouts.

"Early Day Reminiscences"—Dur ing the second winter of my residence in Olympia, the town was cursed by a set of lawless scamps who thought it was line fun to "shanghai" peaceful citizens, drag them off to their den, an old log cabin In the rear of the Pacific hotel, where they were sub jected to all sorts of indignities, among which was using a currycomb on their heads, etc., torturing them until the unwilling victim handed over cash enough to pay for the drinks for the crowd. From our territorial exchanges it seems that every town in Washing ton is increasing in wealth and pros perity and we are sorry we cannot say the same of the cities of Oregon.—• (Dalles Mountaineer.) The Columbia paper mills at La Camas give employment to 75 or 80 persons. They make 6,000 pounds of brown or straw paper every day, an average of 1.800,000 pounds a year. They make 12,000 pounds of news paper per day. They use 2,000 cords of Cottonwood. The clay they use is brought from Europe. It was thought they had found a clay bank near the mills that would answer the purpose, but it was not of the right color. An electric railway is/ to be built from Tacoma to Seattle. "C. M. B.", writing of towns on the Columbia and Cowlitz rivers, says that the first Territorial legislature was held at Monticello. This is not true. The first legislature assembled In Olympia in the winter of 1853-54 In the building now occupied by the Gold Bar restaurant. Mr. C. S. Reinhart, editor of the "Goldendale Sentinel," visited our city this week. The Salvation Army went after the sinners in Tumwater Tuesday even ing and so Olympians had a short respite from their labors. Mrs.* Juliet Ward-Howe, the dis tinguished poet, author and traveler, will lecture in Olympia Friday even ing, November 8, under the auspices of the Woman's club. Quite a large number of the mem bers of the Olympia Motorboat club attended the smoker with which the new clubhouse on the waterfront was dedicated last Saturday night. • • • • Rev. A. W. Rider, D.
