When Messrs Goldenroth, Fis

down tor a ouiet game of pinocle
in tha home of Mr. Goldenroth at
Modesto, Cal., a few weeks ago, little
did they dream that as a result
thereof extradition of Goldenroth
from Washington to California
would be sought and granted.
But such was the case, Governor
liOttis F. Hart today honoring the
extradition requisition of the gov
ernor of California for the return
of Goldenroth to Modesto to fact a
charge of drawing a bank check
with Intent to defraud.
Ooldenroth's story of what oc
cared. as related at the extradition
hearing ,is in substance that the four
gentlemen playing pinocle, at the
•uggestion of Hendlesman, changed
the game to poker. Goldenroth was
the only one with any money, he

Declares Director Kuyken
dall Following Two
Applicants for certificates of pub
lic convenience and necessity to op
perate passenger and freight stages
over the highways of the state will
be required to show themselves law
abiding citizens and careful drivers
if their applications are to be grant
ed, E. V. Kuyknedall, director of the
department of public works, said to
day, following the promulgation of
orders denying two such applications
in which questions of character of
the applicants were involved.
j "Furthermore" said Director Kuy
. Kendall, "after a certificate is issued,
if the complaint is made to the de
partment that any stage operator is
violating the law, not only the high
way law or the rules of this depart
ment, but any law, and such charges
are found to be true, that operator
will have his certificate revoked. The
law giving this department such
power is very clear.
The applications denied by the de
partment in which questions of char
acter of the applicants were involved
were those of August Horch, Jr., for
a line from Walla Walla to Pendle
ton, Oregon, and of Gus Poligos to
operate between Aberdeen and Ho

thers were granted a certificate to
operate between Puyallup and North
Puyallup and Seattle, but will not
be permitted to pick up passengers
in Sumner nor along the highway
between Sumner and Seattle. Mc-
Gee & Dickinson were shown to
have been operating prior to January
15, 1921, whereas Shield Brothers
entered the field later.
Must File Tariffs
Navigation companies operating
on Puget Sound north of Seattle to
Bellingham, and points on the
straights and the San Juan Islands
were ordered by the department to
file tariffs naming reductions In the
rates from 10 to 16 per cent below
their present tariffs, both for passen
gers and freight.
The North Pacific Public Service
Company was authorised to Increase
the rates charged for water at Port
Angeles. The finding of the depart
ment show that the conpany has not
been making a fair return on Its In*
vestment In that In 1920 it earned
only $2,308.20, or .962 per cent on a
valuation of |240,000, whereas It Is
entitled* to earn at least 2.73 per
cent or* $6,518.15.
The department entered an order
of further suspension of the pro
posed Increase of water rates of the
Washougal Water company, for 60
days, the department having been
unable to complete Its Investigation
during the original 90 day suspen
sion ordered July 22.
Gasoline sale* In the state of
Washington for August totalled
close-to 10,000,000 gallons, reports
from dealers to the department of
licenses, under the one-cent per gal
lon tax law show. The Increase over
July sales was 1,182,368 gallons.
One or two small stations are yet to
be heard from but sales of these
will not lcrease the total more vhan
a few hundred gallons.
The total remitted to, the state
treasurer from gasoline taxes for the
month is $98,105.61 aB against $86,-
281.93 for July. Both figures run
considerably over the original esti
mate of returns from the tax.

Asks Frank Report of Con
ditions and Criticism
of Abuses.
First Meeting of Commit ten for
Organization Expected Witliin
Few Days In Seattle.
That if there is any truth in the
rumors circulating about the state
concerning conditions in the insane
hospitals at Sedro-Woolley and at
Stellacoom. Governor Louis F. Hart
desires to know it, was made plain
today by his appointment of nine
men and women, all well known to
the people of the state, who will
form a committee to make an inves
tigation at the two institutions. Gov
ernor Hart placed no restrictions of
any kind on the committee and gave
them sufficient power to gather any
information that they might desire,
after which he asks a frank report
of conditions, together with criti
cism of any abuses, irregularities,
of lack care or attention, in Grder
that the same man be corrected. The
committee named by the governor
today Is composed of the following
George E. Gage, Bellingham; Rob
ert Hesketh, Seattle; Mrs. John P.
Weyerhaeuser, Tacoma; Rev. W. A.
Major, Seattle; Harry McCormack,
Tacoma; Mrs. A. E. Larson, Yakima;
Right Rev. E. J. O'Dea, Seattle; Mrs.
John H. Powell, Seattle, and E. D.
Colvin, Seattle.
Governor Issues Letter.
In his letter to the members of
the committee Governor Hart said:
"There have been many rumors
and unsupported stories circulating
throughout the state concerning con
ditions at the Northern Hospital for
the Insane at Sedro-Wooll6y and the
Western Washington Hospital at
Fort Stellacoom. I am unable to
get verification of thesn stories, and
in the very nature c-f th ings it would
be Impossible for me to verify them
by personal investigation.
"Conditions are reported to be
such as to demand early and force
ful action and I ought to know and
the public are entitled to know if
these rumors are true. If the stories
are based on fact the governor ought
to know it in order that prompt
action might be taken to correct the
abuses. If they are not true, that
fact ought to be published from a
committee of unquestioned integrity
and veracity that the public mind
might be put to rest.
Desires Early Visit
"It Is my desire that this commit
tee arrange at the earliest possible
date for a visit to the Northern Hos
pital, without notice to the superin
tendent or anyone else In authority
as to the date of their visit, and
make a thorough investigation of
conditions at the institution, and of
the care, attenion and food given
he wards. This letter will authorize
the committee herein named, to ad
mittance to any part of the grounds
or buildings, and to converse pub
licly or privately by Interrogation
lor otherwise with any of the state's
I wards, as well as any of the em
ployes, including the superintendent.
"When the investigation is com
pleted, I want a frank report of con
ditions at the institution, together
with a criticism of any abuses, ir
regularities, or lack of care or atten
tion. that the same may be promptly
corrected. After which I would like
a similar investigation at the West
ern Washington Hospital."
The date of the first meeting of
the committee for organization pur
poses was net definitely fixed but it
will probably be held in Seattle with
in the next few days.
Governor Hart, when asked in
what way the committee would be
expected to proceed, replied that
they would select their own chair
man and proceed in any manner they
thought best.
"I am very desirous," the gov
ernor said," of having the coopera
tion in this matter of the relatives
of inmates confined in the institu
tions, or anyone who may know of
any condiions which they do not
'think are proper, and the names of
'the committee are being given to the
public at this time in order that in
-1 terested parties may communicate
'any information at their command
to members of the committee.

Trousers for Women?
.;. .;. .;. MINISTER QUOTES SCRIPTURE* ❖+ + +♦♦
Others Have Differen
When Attorney General L. L.
Thompson advised W. J. Hillyer. the
town marshal of Zllah, that there
was nothing in the law to prevent
women wearing trousers if they so
desired, he started something. The
Seatte Post-Intelligencer, aiming to
test the public opinion, sent an in
terviewer out to talk with prominent
Seattle people about it. The results
are set forth in the Seattle paper to
day in the following:
Whistling girls and crowing liens
alike conic to some bad ends.—Tlie
Ancient Saw. »
Sharply divided is Seattle opinion
on the matter of trousers for women.
A number of leading citizens take
the broad middle way and are cau
tious at denying woman the right
assigned her by State Attorney Gen-
L. L. Thompson to wear trousers If
she pleases, although deploring the
tendency slightly. Others align
themselves with the Rev. P. A. Klein,
Dunlay Baptist church, who believes
that Scripture forbids the practice
and condemns to future punishment
those who observe It.
Sumner's folkways, a textbook on
morals and customs, considered a
classic in many colleges, concedes a
certain relation between morals and
dress, but says in effect that time
destroys this relationship. A promi
nent Seattle physician based his
opinions on trousers for women upon
Either More or Less.
"Immodesty" said he, "immodesty
in dress consists in weutag either
more or less clothing
in the particular country and ftt. the
particular time the wearer makes
his appearance. For example, Be
douin women appear In public in
so many blankets that they appear
like moving vans. If such a woman
takes off a single layer of her blan
kets and still wears seven layers, she
is considered highly Immodest.
"Quaker women wear kerchiefs.
For a Quaker maid to appear with
out her kerchief 1s as Indecent as the
appearance of a French woman in
bathing suit on the public drive.
"Too much clothing is exactly as
immodest as too little clothing ii
custom in the particular place and
time demands a few clothes. Mis
sionaries in Borneo found a highly
moral tribe of natives who wore al
most no clothing. The missionaries
insisted upon trousers for the men
and petticoats for the women and
overnight the tribe became so thor
oughly Immoral that trousers and
petticoats bad to be taken away.
"The point is," said the physician
"that all these matters of dress are
matters of custom and opinion. I
dare say that the appearance of a
woman In khaki breeches on Sec
ond avenue thirty years ago would
have stopped traffic and called out
the police reserves. Today, little Is
thought of such an appearance. My
own view Is that such dress Is com
fortable ana hygienic and that the
women will wear them at all times
sooner or later and that the world
won't be a bit the worse".
Mrs. Everett Smith, president of
the Young Women's Christian As
sociation, said she "mildly deplored"
tendencies among women to discard
feminine attire for masculine habili
"Perhaps I am old fashioned,"
said she, "but I beleive in womanli
ness and breaches are hardly wom
anly. I can't say I think that the
question is one of morals I am rather
one of femininity and I am mildly
opposed to this tendency."
Mrs. Smith said that the question
has been talked of among Y. W. C.
A. officials but that the association
had no rule on the subject.
Mrs. C. H. Oren, general secre
tary of the Y. W. C. A., was cautious
in expression of opinion on the mat
"Ye," she said, ,"I believe the
girls in summer camp on Bainbridge
Island wore bloomers but, although
there was no rule against it, it was
rather understood that they should
not appear on the dock dressed so.
The association has left the matter
to the individual."
"I wouldn't wear them myself,"
said Mrs. Walter C. Beals, former
justice of the peace and prominert
club woman. "I wouldn't wear
trousers myself but I can't believe
that the woman who does will be
denied salvation. I think that
trousers are not beautiful and really
I should say rather than constitut
ing a lure they are more unallurlng
than skirts. I don't think it is a
matter of morality at all. 1 play
tennis and golf and I find no need
for trousers, but if women think
they are more comfortable so drlssed
I shan't blame them. It does seem
to me, though, that about one-half
of life is looking as well as it can and
trousers, I think, make women ap
pear less pretty."
The Rev. Klein based his objec
tions upon a verse in Deuteronomy
in which women who wear that
which "pertaineth to a man," are
declared " an abomination unto the
'Let 'em forget Deuteronomy,'»
declared the Rev. Chauncy J. Haw
kins, pastor of Plymouth Congrega
tional Church. "Let 'em forget and
wear trousers if they want to. No
harm in it, whatever."
"It won't influence the salvation
of a woman," decided the Rev. M.
A. Matthews, pastor of the First
Presbyterian Church. "I think the
matter is not one of morals but one
of propriety. It is possible that
women should not wear trousers but
I don't think that women who do
wear them are lacking In character
or morals and I am sure they will
not be damned for so doing."
So, there are many men (and
women) and many minds on the
subject of what a woman should
wear and what she can't wear with
out sacrificing her chances of bliss
In a life to come. What think you?
