The Seattle Republican
Telephone, Main 305, The Republican Pub. Co., Publishers OFFICE 612 THIRD AVENUE H. R. Cay ton, Editor Susie Revels Cayton, Associate SUBSCRIPTION RATEB: On Year 2..00 Six Mnths 1.00 Three Mouths 60c Advertising rates Furnished upon application Entered at the Postoffice at Seattle as Second Class Mail Matter. Ladysmith now speaks English as usual. The Englisd are being Bored for peace at this writing. If Dick Warner had half as much pride as he has wind, he would—well, he would know when he was sat upon.—Ex. It really does seem to us that Tommy Church and his Review deal too extensively in glittering generalities when it comes to fac tional Democratic politics. A small vituperative sheet pub ished at Blame still continues to have the anti-Wilson nightmare, though it has frequently announced John L. Wilson deader than a door nail. Idiots are constitutionally pre vented from voting in this state. Juding from the recent Democra tic conventions this law has been frequently broken in the past, and we suggest that in the future it be strictly adhered to. The Republicans of King county have three candidates for governor, Humes, Guie and Frink. In the mix-up that is sure to follow An keny's stalking horse Humes stands a good chance to be shut out of the race.—Walla Walla Argus. No, Mr. Tacoma News-Herald, Avidupois Populist Tugwell will not bolt even if John R Rogers is re-nominated for governor. Tug is from Texas where "yaller dorgs" are supported if the dorg is only a Democratic one. No, no, he will never bolt. Confusion will doubtless reign supreme at Nome when the World and his, family arrives there, but we are repeatedly told that there is gold enough for all who go, and gold is a splendid pacifier for restless humanity's nerves. Uncle Sam drove a pretty clover bargain when he bought Alaska for $7,290,000, for that frozen land gave up a half a billion dollars in gold and silver last year, and is expected to give up twice that much during the coming gold season. We learn from the Issaquah Independent that it proposes to be short on the graft game, but a little weed and a bitter seed on the gaff game, when it comes to poli tical enemies. Well, a good grafter frequently develops into a regular rag time gaffer. Some of the state papers are in clined to treat Bryan's allegation that, "I am going to be elected president next fall" as the stale chestnut he has preserved over from the four years ago campaign. Mr. Bryan seems greatly in love with the political mysterious. "Fusion was a failure," solilo quises the Pullman Herald, and permit us to add, likewise a fizzling fungus the odor from which has sickened a great many Jeffer sonian Democrats. It was a fail ure, it is a failure, and, it will be a failure forever mure world with out end. Within the past seven days not less than 2000 persons have left Seattle for Nome, and yet the streets are crowded by day and by night as though not a single person out of the ordinary had left the city. What better evidence do you want that Seattle is the Hub of the Northweat? Our Fusion contemporary the Mt. Vernon Argus thinks that Seattle has so many Democrats that one hall would not hold them all. Well, neighbor, it was not so much the incapacity of the hall to hold them as it was the torrid ness of the hall in which the herd had been corralled. We agree with the Whatcom Reveille that Seattle is getting to be a pretty bad town when a Whatcom man is buncoed in it. The bunco man must have first given the Whatcom man the money and then buncoed him out of it for practice, for we feel quite safe in saying that the Whatconi man brought nothing to Seattle from Whatcom that a bunco man would have. An Oklahoma girl who adver tised for a husband got him. The total expense for advertising and wedding outfit amounted to $11, and within a year her husband died leaving life insurance policy of $3,000. And still some people claim it don't pay to advertise.— Ex. It is to be regretted that the United States Supreme Court has handed Kentucky back to the blood-thirsty murderous Democra tic party from which it had been snatched by the Republicans, despite the nefarious election laws passed by the Democrats to fetter Democracy about Kentucky for another hundred years to come. Brother Patterson of the Cos mopolis Enterprise has plenty of advertising space for sale to all kind of partisans, he. announces, but his editorial columns are un purchasable by any kind of a par tisan. That, he unequivically reserves for his own politics, and that is rock ribbed Republican ism. Good for Pat "Syndicate editorials" continue to hold high hand among some of the brethren. Were we going to buy our brains we would much prefer to buy some that were not being used by the entire gang. Brighten up your wits, fellows, and fire that stuff in the stove and give us good crisp Evergreen State thoughts. You can do it if you will only brace up and think you can. Spokane is classed as the second city in the state by the Adams county News, a recent census showing it quite ahead of Tacoma. There is no denying the fact that there is more truth than poetry in the allegation. Seattle and Spo kane are natural political allies and it showed very poor business tact on the part of Seattle's repre sentatives to cause a spirit of animosity rather than friendliness to come between them. The Southern Democracy dis franchises the Negro, runs jim crow cars on tbe railroads, taxes them without giving them repre sentation, lynches those whom it chooses to accuse, without the formality of a trial, and yet holds up its haods in holy horror be cause they fear the Republicans are going to -'oppress" the natives of Porto Rieo.—Ellensburg Cap ital. The Pie-maker in the Seattle Republican charges that Levi Ankeny contributed $8000 to the Humes campaign fund in the recent city election in Seattle. As the Republican supported Humes for election, after opposing his nomination, it may be in a position to know what it is talking about, but still we have our doubts.—Mt Vernon Argus. Are you measur ing our corn by your half a bushel measure ? Editor Mays of the Pomeroy Independsnt does not hesitate to pronounce the man that predicts McKinley will carry the state of Washington as a "nameless liar." The state went Republican two years ago against "fusion;" Demo cracy is now hopelessly divided, as will be seen from last Saturdays state convention. Now in the face of all this, Bro. Mays who appears to be the liar, the man that has alleged or the man that is denying? When one has finished reading the Vancouver-Register -Demo crat he must be thoroughly convin ced in himself that all Republi cans are either corporation thieves or political tools of such criminals, while ail Democrats, Pops and Fusionists are simply angels with out wings. He, who can always see faults in his neighbor, but per fectness in himself, is like unto the man that could see the pigeon on the barn but could never'get a glimpse of the barn. King county does not desire to beat i rank W. Cushman out of a renomination for congress and the Hoquium Washingtonian prevari cates when it says she do^s. King county wants the governor and it proposes to have it. She has three candidates for the position, but that is her own affair, you can rest assured that she will pre sent but one candidate to the next state convention for its considera tion. Be sure you are right and then fire away, Mr. Editor. George Washington, the father of the United States, and its first president, according to the Coif ax Commoner was at the time of his election to the presidency, the richest man in the country, even at that day being a millionaire. If that be true, and who would doubt it since it comes from a Democrat, how our country has departed from its original customs, since no president during the last of the nineteenth century was worth but little more than the salary he drew for holding the office, such is certainly true of the present chief executive, William McKinley. We are told by the~News that the City of Ballard has grown in a comparatively short time from 3000 to 7000. That the citizens are beginning to take a real live interest in their thriving munici pality and Ballard is no longer over awed at its close proximity to Seattle. We congratulate Bal lard in its rapid strides, and es pecially do we congratulate it for showing its further good sense by building principally toward Se attle, as it will be but a few years more when both will be jammod into one. Grow on, sister, grow on. It occurs to us that the Olym pia Capital's syndicate politician tried to be a bit satirical when he wrote, "some trade follows the Flag, as all the coffin manufact ures report heavy orders from the Philippines." Our Demo-Pop journalist should not loose sight of the fact that during Demo cracy's reign in this country coffin manufactures went to the wall as badly as any other kind of indus tries, simply because times were too hard for people to die. People know they can get a swell burial now, hence they die without re grets. It makes a whole lot of difference, old man, with the average American citizens when the smoke stacks are in operation and the wheels of industry are moving, as to dying just the same as to living. Hon. William H. White has been appointed to fill the vacancy on the Supreme bench of this state by Gov ernor Rogers. This is the goal of Mr. White's legal ambition, the United States senate, being the goal of political ambition. He will begin the duties of the of fice June Ist next. In ac cepting the position, which he has so long sought, Mr. White severs a law partner ship between himself and Mr. Munday, which has covered a period of nine te*n years duration and has perhaps done as much business as an}^ other firm in the city, Second Deputy Prosecut ing Attorney Walter S. Fulton has tendered his re signation to his chief, James McElroy, to take ef fect June Ist next. Mr. Fulton was prompted to take this step owing to the fact that his uncle was re tiring from the law firm of White & Munday. and he being a junior partner in the firm would be needed in the office to carry on the business.
