Practically speaking, front the results attained, the members of the road district associations of this count> can recommend until they are blue in tl.e me. and have so recommended year after year, and (lie com missioners have deliberately disregarded them by one scheme or another. The commissioners, in other words, appoint the men they want as road supervisors, not tie- men the road associations want, and this in spite of the ver> plain statement of the law. Is that giving any regard to what you want? The history of the purchase of road machinery, covering particularly the rock crusher, the gasoline roller and the traction engine, might well be recounted as throwing still further light on the commissioners' way of doing business, but this road machinery question was covered in con siderable detail in the report of the farmers' committee and is quite familiar to you. Suffice it to say we have bought from SIB,OOO to $20,000 worth of road machinery of one kind and another in this county since January 1. 1911, 90 per cent or more of this from the same company— how much of it has been worth anything to you? You can answbr that fairly well when you recall how frequently it has been swapped hack and forth for this and that, or has laid idle for months at a time, in all kinds of weather. We might g<) into great detail on these and other things—might talk about road construction and road maintenance, might refer to the famous Helser bridge or the more famous bridge across the Black river on the Dave Johnston road, might diseuas any one ot" a hundred things that havo arisen during the last two yeara, during the administration of the present commissioners—but they all conte back to the same thing, gross incompe tency, mismanagement and disregard for what the people of this county want. Of course the commissioners are being attacked. Most certainly they are entitled to it. One could hardly find better arguments against their re-election than they themselves have furnished in their official acts. One need go no further than that record to discredit them, to show them to l>e unworthy of re-election. A STATEMENT OF FACT. For the benefit of the editor of the "Independent" and to relieve him of further distress on the subject, the editor of this newspaper desires to say that he worked for the state labor commissioner two weeks in July, for which he was paid SSO, three weeks in August for which he was paid $75, and three and one-half weeks in September, for which he was paid $87.50, a total of $212.50, at the rate of $25 a week, the established salary for this kind of work. The employment was for special work only and there never was any secret about it. During that time he wrote the biennial report for that department, amounting to very nearly 300 pages of original matter. That work was finished last month. More than one-third of the last biennial report of that department was filled up with the labor laws of the state and similar matter, known in newspaper parlance as "pick up." There is none of this in this year's report. The man who wrote the report two years ago was paid $350. In other words, the editor of this newspaper did one-third more work than he did and received $137.50 less for doing It, which is considerably more than one-third less than the preparation of that report cost the state two years ago and considerably more than half more than was paid the editor of this newspaper this year for 33 1-3 per cent more work. This statement is made in justice to the state labor commissioner. Personally, the editor of the "Ipdependent" may shoot his mouth off all he wants to—we do not care a rap. JOHNSON COMES HOME, Congressman Tells Olympians About Child Labor in South. Child labor conditions in some of the Southern states formed the bur den of a 15-minute speech made by Congressman Albert Johnson when the train upon which he was return ing home was held here in Olympia Wednesday afternoon to permit him to talk to Olympians. Some 300 to 400 people heard him. The congressman declared his feal ty to the Republican party from top to bottom, talked a little about con servation, briefly mentioned the tarifT and war tax, emphasized child labor in the South, and assured his hearers that he had done all he could for the best interests of this district at all times, explaining: "I want to assure you that every vote I have cast and all 1 have said has been what I thought to be for the best interests of the people of this district and this state." Johnson is the first member of the Washington delegation to return home. The Republicans of Hoquiam, his home city, gave a banquet in his honor Wednesaay evening. TURNER SUPPORTS BLACK Spokane Man Endorses Candidate Who Defeated Him in Primaries Emphatic endorsement of Judge W. W. Black as the Democratic candi date for the United States senate and assurances that he would "go down the line" for him were made by Judge George Turner of Spokane, who lost I the nomination by 15 votes, in a talk he made in Spokane the other day when he presided at a big meeting in Judge Black's honor. "Judge Black is the party's stand ard bearer," Judge Turner said, ac cording to the Inland Empire News. "He was chosen the party's candidate for United States senator after a very close contest between us. I freely admit that I am disappointed in not having received the highest number of votes and thus becoming the par ty's candidate, but 1 am not discom forted. I want to say here and now, that my loyalty to the Democratic party and my confidence in that party have not been shaken and 1 propose to do all within my power, and to ap peal to all my friends throughout the state to lend their influence and ef forts, to elect Judge Black United States senator.
