Oom Paul's soldiers showed
signs of life the other day and as a

prisoners of war.

Bryan failed to save Tacoma
from going Republican, and, in his
endeavor to save Tacoma, Lincoln,
his home, slipped into the Repub

"It was a regular caution" how
Cotterill, Lewis, Blethen and Bryan
bouqueted each other at the ban
quet when such was not even a part
of the program.
Marcum, it seems, was nothing
more nor less than a fizzle braced
up by yellow Pop journalism.
His presidential boom did not
even reach the huge joke state. '
Cartoons of Bryan showing his
bland child-like smile have not
been exaggerated by the news
papers. When he smiles he cer
tainly smiles all over his face.
The usual calm after the storm
followed the Bryan wind storm in
the Northwest. Though the storm
raged with unusual severeness no

Seattle's chances for getting a
million dollar public building are
very flattering, so writes Repre

he is heartily endorsed by his
colleague, Mr. Jones.
It was not exactly the usual

J. Eugene Jordan got relieved of
his $10,000, but it was akin to it,
and, we assure you, dear reader,
equally as romantic.
Scientists all agree that Andree,
the North pole baloon explorer,
is long since dead, but an attempt
will be made within the coming
summer season to find out the
exact truth of the matter.
Spokane county has now done it
to the Indian, the Negro, the China
man, and, finally, to the Cauca

hanged as high as Hay man in the
Spokane county jail last Friday,
Official kidnappers do not seem
to fare near so well in California
as they do in Seattle, as two offi

courts for trying the kidnapping
Easter merchants have already
made complete arrangements for
the wholesale receiving of your
entire winter's wages. For the
sake of peace in the family it
behooves you to quietly acquiesce

Col. Allen declares that Bryan
is no longer a Democrat. There
is no doubt of that, colonel, he is
simply a presidential candidate
and don't give a darn as to what
elects him. Any old party just
so he can get to put his grip under
the White House bed.
"None but friends of labor
unions advertise on this card," is
the motto of a card said to have
been issued in the interest of orga
nized labor in this city, and fifteen
(15) saloon advertisements out of
thirty appeared thereon. Draw
your own conclusions.
Using President McKinley's
name as an advertisement to sell
certain brands of whiskey is a
compliment, we surmise, that Mr.
McKinley would not greatly ap
preciate, since he does not use the
vile stuff even as a medicine.
Not for two decades past have
the farmers of the United States
been in as good financial condition
as^ at present, and yet the Windy
Wonder is endeavoring to convince
them that they are being robbed.
Many of us would like to get rob

If Candidate Bryan's visit to
Seattle lms not killed every oppor
tunity of further "three tent Fu

tainly miss our guess. Dissatis
faction and open opposition among
Democrats and Pops are heard on
all sides since the cyclone passed.

race prejudice was not rapidly
becoming a thing of the past.
Japan appears anxious to get in a
mixup with Russia. Once on a
time, the Transvaal hankered to
get in a scrap with Great Britain,
now that it is into it Oom Paul is
doubly anxious to get out of it.
We fear that Japan will experience
a similar feeling before it has been
in war with Russia very long.
Webster Davis, who had such a
time at Pretoria with Oom Paul
ism not long since, has resigned
his position at Washington City
and intends to enlighten the
United States citizens on the
Transvaal situation. We suspect
Mr. Davis is troubled with the
dreams of Webster's greatness.
Col. Alden J. Times is reaping
the fruits of his graft on the secre

the annual statements of the in

in this state, for which it charges

If Admiral Dewey ever visits
Rome to pay homage to the Pope
then he will have killed off every
prospect he may have had to be
president of the United States.
Somehow or other the American
people have a perfect political
abborenje for any American who
will kneel betore any Catholic
potentate, and even the name of
Dewey can not break the charm.
It is reported that Judge Miller
of Clarke, Cowlitz, Skamania and
Klickitat counties, will be a can
didate for the Republican nomi
nation for supreme judge this fall
to succeed Judge Gordon who has
declined to accept the office again
Judge Miller has held court in
Chehalis a few times where he
created a favorable impression,
and should lie secure the nomina

A Vancouver paper mentions N*
B. Coffman, of this city, as a poss
ible candidate on the ; Republican
ticket for governor. It is whis
pered in Chehalis that W. May
nard would like to have a term in
the state treasury. It therefore
appears that Lewis county will
not be without candidates before
the Republican state . convention
this fall, and why should it?
Lewis county is one of the largest
counties in Western Washington,
yet it has never, so far as our
knowledge goes, had a state office.
Henry Long was at one time a
strong gubernatorial possibility,
but he never got so far as to receive
the nomination It is probable
that both Mr. Coffman andjMr.
Maynard will be easily discourag
ed in their ambitions this year,
but the time is not far distant
when such will not be the case,
especially with the former. N. B
Coffman is rapidly becoming a.
power in Republican state poli
tics and his- ambitions are keeping
even pace with his influence. We
venture to make the prediction
that if he fails of success this year
he will be the nominee of the Re
publican party either for governor
or for congressman in 1904. If
the political wheel of fortune is
then favorable to the Republican
party, Lewis county will for the
first time be represented at the
state capital or in the . national
halls of congress. If it must be a

Hen. S. G. Cosgrove, of this
city, has been looking . over the
field, and, believing that' his can
didacy might offer a common
ground upon which the Republi
cans throughout the state could
unite, has concluded to be a can
didate for governor, before the
Republican state convention next
fall. He is so well known to the
people in all parts of the state that
no introduction is necessary.
And it goes without saying that
anything he might ask at the
hands of his many influential
friends will be given respectful
consideration. His record as a
public-spirited citizen, his ability
as a lawyer, and his invaluable
services as a campaign speaker,
have demonstrated his peculiar
fitness to make the race for the
high position to which he aspires.
He is widely known as a man of
ability and much force of charac
ter, and is finely equipped by
natural endowment, education and
training to serve the people with
distinction, and in the event of
his nomination he could be relied
upon to furnish the vital political
force necessary to keep Republi
can principles to the front. —East

The experiment with fir in the
manufacturing of cars seem to
have been highly satisfactory, as
it is now asserted by the Railroad
and Engineering Journal that
during the year 1900 a majority of
the cars built for Western roads
will be of material taken from the
forests of Washington.
"Snohomish is suffering from
an overdose of fakes," so says the
Tribune. That seems to be quite
an epidemic all over the state at
present, and no one but the busi
ness men are responsible for it.
The bigger humbug a thing is in
Seattle the more the suckers bite
at it. When merchants patronize
only legitimate institutions that
are fixtures in their city then, and
not until then, will fakes cease to

Carson, both of whom aspire to be
the "real thing" among the Negro
vote in the District of Columbia,
are struggling with each other for
supremacy, and it looks as though
they will sooner or later manage
to kill each other off competelyl
from a political stand point.

Then you see the merchants that
advertise in its columns. When
out shopping do not forget them.
