Do You Want Your Taxes Increased ? Are you going to vote for a legislature or send members there who will raise your taxes? The ring says: '' The old way is good enough.'' How about the appropriations made by the last legislature? Almost 25,000,000 of dollars, about 100 per cent increase over the session of 1911. How did it come about? By trading votes—the ring saying what each should have, provided he voted right. If you think your taxes are not high enough and want them increased, send the old bunch back, but if you want ECONOMY, and a SQUARE DEAL vote for H. P.

The party represented by the ele phant held a meeting Tuesday night in McLane Grange hall composed mostly of ladies and Non-Partisans. The speakers were from the state house, none of the candidates taking part except Mr. L. W. Morrison. The members of Prosperity Grange gave a very enjoyable dancing party in their hall Saturday night, which was well attended, considering the inclement weather. A good time was reported. Mrs. Griffith, who has been visiting in Eastern Washington, has returned to her home here. Miss Hazel Ahearn is visiting in Tenino with her aunt, Mrs. Rogers. Misses Maggie and Florence Mc- Lane and Mr. and Mrs. It. J. Shan non visited over Sunday with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Milner McLane.

CITY POLITICS QUIET Primary Contests All On Citizen's Ticket—l>ohm Starts Contest Politically speaking, the campaign ] for the city primaries, to he held the same day as the general election, has not caused much stir, lor the only contests are on the Citizen's ticket, but prophetically speaking :i is an ticipated the campaign will take on considerable briskness before the election in December for the Repub licans are apparently intending to make a hard fight against Mayor Mottman and the balance of the Citi zens' ticket, much more of one, at least, than they did last year. Charles B. Collins, a local barber who has broken into the political limelight several times in the last few years, has the "hunch" he wants to be city clerk, and so does W. A. Hoage, brother of the man whom I. N. Holmes defeated last year. Some people have been spreading the story that Hoage has not been here more than a year, but the truth is, accord ing to his friends, that he came to Olympia more than two years ago, engaging in the shingle business. He came here from Douglas, Neb., where he had been principal of the schools for five years, then for two years a deputy sheriff and for two years just prior to his coming here, a deputy in the county treasurer's office. There are a couple of other con tests on the Citizen's ticket, one be tween Mrs. Julia E. Waldrip, the present city treasurer, and Emil Mar tensen, brother-in-law of the mayor, for the nomination for city treasurer, and the other between F. A. Yauger, present Sixth ward councilman, and T. J. Meyers, for that nomination. It took Hiram Dohm, the Republi can candidate for city clerk, to in ject a little humor into the situation.
