H The past eighteen months have taught us here in 1 America what lack of industrial preparedness has meant || to some of the countries now at war. These nations = H had the ships and they had the men; but when the hour I H struck, their factories were not able to furnish the colors §| g with arms and shells and powder. Their factories were g |g not prepared. And our factories are not prepared. H -% Bui it is not enough to draw a moral. In the United States five | H great Engineering Societies Civil, Mining, Mechanical, Electrical gg g and Chemical hare pledged their services to the Government of the g = United States, and are already working hand in hand with the Govern- |§ == ment to prepare industry lor the national defense. They receive no g H pay and will accept no pay. All they seek is opportunity to serve their g g country, thai she may have her industries mobilised for defense. eH; All elements of the nation's life the manufacturers, the business g jg men, and the workingmen should support this patriotic and demo- g H cratic work of the engineers, and assist them cheerfully when asked g H| There can be no belter national insurance against war. || The Associated Advertising Clubs of the World, representing g |H all advertising interests have offered their free and hearty service to the H g| President of the United States, in close co-operation with these five g j§ Engineering Societies, to the end that the Country may know what the gjj Engineers are doing. The President has accepted the offer. The g H Engineers have welcomed the cooperation. I This advertisement, published without cost to the United States, is =§ I g§ the first in a nation-wide series to call the country to the duty of co- m I §|j operating promptly and fully with the Engineers.

"It was a fine convention," agreed all the old-timers as they joined the procession headed for the depot last Saturday night. It certainly was a line convention—of its kind. But It was of a kind that the people don't approve of and won't trust much farther than they can throw a barnyard by the gate post. It was typical of that sort of convention that has brought representative party management into disrepute; that has convinced the people that the political game is assentially dishonest, and forced them to take up the bungling direct primary system. Otherwise it was all right. To us it is passing strange that many excellent citizens—when they are at home—should have characterized this convention as "fine," from any other than the mechanical or social standpoint. Considering it as one of our instruments of self-government It was, in truth, a rotten perform ance and a disgrace to an intelligent people. The Republic speaks wholly as a disinterested observer. It owes the steam roller no grudge. As an observer it noted that 700 or 800 gentlemen came over here the other day pretending to represent their people at home in the election ot representatives in a national convention which will choose a candidate for the high office of president and professing to favor, as their people are believed to favor, the selection of a candidate with regard to his ability end character and with due deference to the wishes and opinions of a great mass of voters who have heretofore been divided on great national ques tions. Was it a representative body and were its deliberations conducted with a view to ascertain the sentiments of its members and to choose an open-minded delegation to Chicago? The answer to that inquiry definitely fixes the character of this great meeting. Deliberately, and with no thought of any delegate's wishes and with no other purpose than to work out the plans of a self-constituted boss b>ready known to be pledged to a presidential candidate this state knows nothing about and never has favored, the slate was made and jobbed through. The convention's action was purely mechanical. No individual who did not control a bunch of delegates counted for anything at all. Del egates were to the few manipulators nothing more than so many cattle. They were dealt in and traded on every proposition that came up as if they were chattels. A body which submits to such manipulation is not, and never can be. a representative body. It has long been a mystery to us that members of Republican conven tions allowed them to be run in this way. It is also a mystery to us why : (he notion persists in the minds of many otherwise intelligent gentlemen , who frequent political conventions that the people may yet be Induced to i turn back complete control of their public affairs to such organizations. They never will do it. "Fine" as this convention may have seemed ♦o some gtntlemen who participated in it, the impression it has made on the outside public is that of a vitiating and contaminating force in our public life. To our mind it is a great pity that such "fine" conventions are not what the men inside of them like to think they are. In theory party gov ernment and management of party affairs by representatives of the voters is a magnificent conception. In practice, because good men forget the ideals of good citizenship and think it makes no difference what happens in a convention hall, we find them unworkable Is there a reason why the people have little respect for the processes by which they attempt to govern themselves, and consider their politics, which ought to be worthy occupation for any citizen, merely the dirty business of crooks? There is; and, speaking merely as an observer, we say that it is found in the deliberations and actions of such "fine" conven tions as we had here the other day An interesting feature of politics in the state of Washington is the increased importance of the legislative machine both in actual affairs of government and in partisan deliberations and manipulations. Before the direct primary days the legislature was almost invariably controlled from the outside. Today it is an independent force of no little Importance. The legislative boss and the legislative machine controlled the deliberations of the state convention of the majority party held here last Saturday, dic tated those portions of the platform relating to the management of the state's affairs past and present, made the slate and chose the majority of the men who will go to Chicago to nominate a candidate for president. Some very misleading reports regarding the fixing and framing of the convention are in circulation throughout the state. It is said, and in some quarters is believed, that the meeting was dominated by National Commit teeman S. A. Perkins. We don't know but what there is at least one citizen of Tacoma who has an idea that this is a fact. This is a funny and on almost ludicrous error. Mr. Perkins did not even control his own dele gation until after the real boss of the convention, Mr. Sims of Jefferson county, the well-known boss of the last two legislatures, told him he might it' he would be good. No other county boss in any of the principal counties controlled his own delegation to such an extent that he could use it for the benefit of the candidate to which it was ostensibly committed until he had made his peace with Mr. Sims. There was no delegation of any con sequence in the convention, with the single exception of that from Yakima, whose deliberations were not in a measure controlled by Mr. Sims and vhose actions were not Anally dictated with nice regard for his wishes and convenience. It was a one-man convention and it was controlled to an extent that no other state convention was ever controlled by one mind. The conven- tion at Aberdeen four years ago worked as automatically and with as com ! plete certainty of results as this one, but that convention was handled through an alliance of interests and not by any boss. Growth of the power of the legislative boss is a phenomenon of no little interest, and the question whether it is the outcome of the direct I primary system of nominating state and county officers, popular election of senators and the diminishing importance of the party organization and 1 the remaining conventions is worthy of careful study by the voters. It i has already had an important and a far-reaching effect on legislation and on appropriations. Its influence on the public press of the state may be ' noted by careful observers. It will be felt in Chicago at the national con l vention. It is a factor with which the people of the state, and perhaps of ether states, may have to deal with in the future. We contemplate it with much curiosity. Hanson Name* New Deputy. State Bank Examiner W r . E. Han son Wednesday announced the ap pointment of Lewis H.
