The SEATTLE REPUBLICAN
VOL. IX, NO. 13 POLITICAL POT - PIE Senator George Turner has been do ing Seattle for the past week and still lingers about. In an interview given to The Times Senator Turner says he is confident that the Democrats will win in the coming fall election, and thereby insure his return to the United States senate next year. Senator Tur ner don't believe any such thing. He don't believe that there is a ghost of a show for him or any other Democrat to win. Perhaps no Republican will win either, for each of the aspirants may be so strong and neither of them being willing to concede to the other nor to elect a dark horse and thereby deadlock the legislature, but if that is not done Senator Turner believes as do all of his followers that a Republican is going to oe e.ected to succeed him in the United States senaie from this state in 1903. Of course the Senatoi stands ready to take advantage of an> mishap that might overtake the Repub lican party and therefore he is not wil ing, nor would it be good politics on his put, to admit three months prior to the election, that the Demo crats are already beaten, and there fore the senator is only whistling to keep his courage up, but he knows in his heart of hearts that he has no show of being re-elected next year, but what he is doing at ihe present time is shap ing the Democratic party to his own ends, that he may in the future be its sole dictator. Sometimes to be the head of a party machine is worth a good deal more to the individual than party success, and it looks as though Senator Turner is shaping his fortunes to that end. * * • "1 knew four weeks ago," said a prominent Republican politician to the Fie-i«laker one day this week, "about the deal that you mentioned in the poetical Pot-Pie last week referring to Will H. Parry ana others grooming bam Piles for tho United States sen ate, and 1 had intended to speak to you about it, but was called away and hadn't seen you beiore it came out in the paper. When I read it I was puz zled to know where you got it, but you had it pretty straight and 1 way glad to see it come ous as it did. There is no doubt of the fact that Parry i& working on the Piles senatorial boom with all his heart and soul and not only Parry but a lot of other fellows who are hollering Preston on the sueeis. Sam Piles, as he is commonly known throughout the city and per haps the state, is a hist class man and a red-hot Republican, but the time is not ripe for him to go to the United States senate, and, regardless of the Seattle spirit and its activity in whip- ping Seattle politicians into the sup port of a Seattle candidate just be cause he is from Seattle whether the politicians favor such person or not, Hie promoters oi the Sam Files coup are doomed to defeat. ,The Republi cans in convention assembled have de cided to support Harold Preston foi United States senator, and while the Republicans in convention assembled did not decide that if Mr. Preston was not a candidate who they womd sub sequently support if lie should retire from the fight, nevertheless the mdi vidual Republicans decided that the} would support whomever they pleased when Mr. Preston was no longer a can didate, and when Mr. Preston retires, if he ever does, the delegation is go ing to be divided between John L. Wil son and Levi Ankney in spite of what Piles, Parry or any one else may say to the contrary, and in spite of the Se attle spirit coming to the front to whip them into line for the election of some unknown quantity. * * * What Com, Thurston and Chehalis counties have held their conventions since the last issue of The Republican and each of them decided to fight Gov ernor Mcßrides railroad commission bill. The governor was not expecting such a body blow from the largest county in the northwest, and when seen on the streets of Seattle one day this week he was looking rather de jected from a political standpoint. Un less the Pie-maker is sadly mistaken the governor sees the handwriting on the wall and it looks like defeat for him. Pierce county is against the gov ernor and on a call vote it is highly probable that a majority of the dele gates from King county will vote against the governor's railroad policy, and if a majority vote against it it is quite likely all of them will vote against it, and with these two big counties against him aided by What com and Snohomish it begins to look as though the next Republican state convention will not insert an anti-rail road plank such as Governor Mcßride would have it do in its plat form. If the governor fails tc get the convention to instruct for the insertion of his plank in the plat form he has failed as a politician in ithe very outset of his career and his | nomination for governor, which he is ! fighting for, will fall flat two years j before it will be time for it to come 1 before the nominating convention. In | other words the governor must win in j the fight he has undertaken at the coming state convention or he had as well retire from the political field foi j all time to com for, in the language of! the under world, he will be a dead ; one. * • • according to The Times and the Spokesman-Review John L. Wilson has lost Whatcom county. The Pie-Makei I remembers that both of these papers said that Wilson had lost Spokane county as well, but somehow or othei j Wilson named every nominee for the ! legislature from that county and ! named every delegate to the state con vention, and if the same condition of affairs exists in Whatcom county it! is more than likely that The Times; and the Review are preaching and' publishing their prejudices to Wilson I rather than the absolute facts of the political situation in the various conn- j ties of the state. Unless the Pie-Mak er is sadly mistaken Whatcom county j in the next legislature will give Pres ton one vote, Ankney two, and Wilson i two on the first call. What the results will be when either Preston, Ankney or Wilson drops out of the fight, if they ever do, is more than the Pie-! Maker would dare predict at this time, but he is of the opinion that Wilson has more friends in Whatcom county, who will be in the next legislature, un less a Democratic landslide should ov ertake the county, than any of the al I ready announced senatorial aspirants ! • ♦ » But a few more county conventions are to be held when the tale, so far as \ nominations and endorsements are concerned, will have been told. The conventions which are to be held will i from a senatorial standpoint favor Wil son and Preston with perhaps one Ank-) ney vote. All of the counties will be' against Mcßride. SPOKANE POLITICS Spokane, Aug. 27.—The recent visit of Senator Preston of Seattle to Spo kane and the friendly relations which seem to exist between him and the leading Wilson men of the city have caused comment. In case Senatoi Wilson finds it impossible to secure his own election next winter he will not throw up the spunge entirely and go home leaving the legislature to se lect whom it chooses v/ithout regard to his wishes. He does not do things: in that way. Those who recall the circumstances surrounding the elec- | tion of Senator Foster remember that 1 when Senator Wilson found it impos sible to secure his own choice he made terms with Foster which insured that gentleman's election, and which have , been able to keep Senator Wilson prominently before the people of the . state during the past two years and have made him remarkably influential , in all matters of federal patronage. Senator Wilson is bitterly opposed to the election of Levi Ankeny. He has a two-ofld reason for wishing to de- . feat the Walla Walla man. In the first place he dislikes the man with a dislike which is akin to hate. Sec ond, if he can not be elected this year he desires that the man who is elected should be a resident of the west side of the mountains. If Mr. Ankeny or any other man from the east side is elected this winter it will ■ mean that Mr. Wilson will have no chance two years from now. But ii Mr. Wilson can not win for himseli this year he gives himself anothei chance two years hence by throwing the election to the west side of the state. * • • On the other hand, what is the po sition of Harold Preston? Some oi his best friends are friends of Senatoi Wilson. When Mr. Preston was in Spokane prior to the Republican con vention he expressed himself as be lieving that Senator Wilson should be given his own county and he never showed any sympathy with the fight which Ankeny made against Wilson nor aid Mr. Preston make any attempt to secure the nomination of any legis lative candidates from Spokane coun ty who would be for him for senator Further, Mr. Preston is not a wealthy man, in fact can be considered a pooi' I man, and it is believed he would look with disfavor on the election to the United States senate of a man whose most prominent recommendation is i his wealth.

"Let justice be done to America; in no other country is there a govern ment so fair minded, so impartial, so willing to treat all classes of citizens with absolute justice as that with which we are blessed in America."— Archbishop Ireland. "1 urgently desire the preservation of the integrity of China; I desire that her growth, commercially and indus trially, may enable China to take her place among the great nations of the world, increasing her friendly and commercial relations with all the world, and especially with the United States."—President Roosevelt. "1 believe that within thirty years nearly all railways will discard steam locomotives and adopt electric motors, and the horses almost entirely. In the present state of science there are no known facts by which one could predict any commercial future for aerial navigation."—Thomas A. Edi son. that in the last session of the legis lature the entire Ankeny following bitterly opposed and succeeded in de feating the railroad measures which Mr. Preston and his ally, Governor Mcßride, had their hearts set upon. The governor never has forgiven Mr Ankeny and Mr. Preston liked it no better. But Senator Wilson in no way interfered in the doings of the las; legislature. On the contrary hit friends were in most cases the warn, friends of Senator Preston and sup ported the Preston railroad legisla tion. * * * Under such conditions does not a natural alliance lie between Wil son and Preston? Many people are beginning to think that while the al liance is not made, the parties thereto are placing themselves where it wil. be easy to bring about a uniting of the forces when the proper time comes In fact the forces of Senator Foster in most cases are working for An keny, which of itself would throw the Wilson and Preston people together in opposition to any Ankeny-Foster combine which may develop. But it may be a little difficult for the sup porters of Wilson and Preston to agree on a plan of fusion. If Wilson can go into the fight with more votes than Preston it is quite likely that the Preston men can be induced to later turn over to Wilson a large por tion of the Preston strength. But ij Preston staits out with a bigger vote than Wilson it is probable that the Preston support will not have the staying qualities that the Wilson strength will possess. It is suppose*, that the forces of Preston are not bound to him as strongly as are either the forces of Wilson or Ankeny. This will make Wilson the stronger of the two if a merger of their forces is made. It would mean that the Pres ton strength is more apt to go to Wil son than is the Wilson strength to go to Preston. But if Wilson is con vinced that he can not win it is prob able that he will gladly give the Se attle man his support rather than give it to Mr. Ankeny. * ♦ * The Populist party in Spokane county has done the unexpected and has called a county convention tc place in nomination a county ticket. The Populists in a general way are friendly to the election of Senator Turner, but they refused to listen to the wishes of the senator, who ear- nestly ; desired a basis of union be established between the Populist and' Democratic wing of the Democratic party. Perhaps it should be said that the Populists were more willing than were the old line Democratic friends of the senator. It was the latter who refused and continue to refuse to lis ten to any fusion talk and say they j prefer to go it alone rather than to make terms with the Pops. At the meeting of the Populist central com mittee last Saturday Senator Tolman. j a Democrat of the stalwarts, urgec the Populists to abandon their organ ization and come into the Democratic party as Democrats. They refused They said they had asked the Demo crats to agree upon a line of fusion but their request had been turned down. But they appointed a commit | tee which has the power to agree with the Democratic convention on a line of fusion, but it is not believed the Democrats will listen. John Coffeen urged the Populists to go into the Democratic party, or at least he pre tended to. The Democratic count} convention meets on the sixth of Sep tember and the Populist convention on the 13th. The Socialist party will also meet on the 13th to name a county ticket. * * * George Mudgett, county treasurer is left in an uncertain position b; the recent action of the Populists it. calling a convention. Mudgett, who himself is popular in Spokane county, is a Populist, but he was elected on the Democratic ticket when his own party placed no ticket in the field But now if he declares himself a Pop ulist he will antagonize the Democrats. They may refuse to place him on theii ticket if he does not come out as a Democrat. On the other hand, if he declares himself a Democrat and ac cepts a position on that ticket the Populists may refuse to name him on their ticket, which would seriously lessen his chances of re-election, foi while he is generally popular his greatest strength lies with the Popu lists. At the present time Mr. Mud gett says he has not made up his mind whether he is a Democrat or a Populist, but will know in a few days ♦ • * Another man who is in a similarly embarrassing position is Judge W. E. Richardson of the superior court bench. The judge is a pronounced ano activef Socialist *Jid Socialistic worker But he too was elected on the Demo cratic ticket. That was all very well when the Democrats were bidding foi Socialist votes and were supported b> the Socialists, but now the Socialists have decided to place a ticket of theii own in the field in this county. This will not please the Democrats, whose chances of success this fall will be seriously lessened thereby. Where then will Judge Richardson get off two years hence when he desires to be re-elected to the superior court judge ship? He can not say he has not been a Socialist and that his work will not have assisted in Democratic defeat. This will make it very difficult, if not impossible, for him to secure a re nomination from the Democrats. On the other hand if he accepts a nom ination from the Socialists alone it is not likely he can be elected although personally popular. In Whitman county the political sit uation is becoming mixed. In the eighth senatorial district, which in a general way includes the southern portion of the county, which has been the Republican stronghold of the county in years past, and which was made still stronger Republican by the redistricting of the state by the last legislature, the Republicans are in danger of losing a part or all of their legislative nominees for both houses. In this district the fight between the Ankeny forces and the Preston forces in the convention was very bitter and the bitterness has not abated since the convention was very bitter and the bitterness has not abated since the convention when Ankeny won and his friends were nominated. The oppon ents of Ankeny swear they will ot support men who will go to the legis lature to vote for a man who is a pronounced enemy of the railroad leg islation which they deem of so much importance. They declare it is absurd to expect the county which has been most persistent for railroad legisla tion to send men who will vote for a man for United States senator who publicly announces that he is not in favor of railroad legislation. On th£ other hand the Democrats in this dis trict are united and are putting up a good fight. In the ninth senatorial district, which comprises the northern part oi the county and which by the actioc of the last legislature was made stil stronger Democratic, the Democrats are divided and the Republicans are united —just the reverse of the situa tion in the other district. The Repub licans therefore believe they will carry the northern district. Therefore un less matters change between the pres ent time and election day it is quite possible that the Republicans wil carry the Democratic district and the Democrats will carry the Republican district in Whitman county.

Judge Jackson usurps the power (not the right) to make laws and fix penalties, not according to the constitution, but according to his own warped and biased judgment.

Impeachment proceedings have been suggested, and it is to be hoped that the matter will be brought before con gress."—W. J. Bryan. The mausoleum containing the re mains of the late Garrett A.

BROTHER IN BLACK The Negro educational conference which recently closed its meetings at- Atlanta, Georgia, was of a very op timistic turn of mind. The general tone of the speeches and reports showed that all the delegates were 1 strong in the belief that the race was on the road to better things and that their future, to a large extent, was in their own hands. The resolutions adopted at the conclusion of the ses sion are significant. They began by recounting the progress, that the race has made under difficult conditions. "In spite of theorists and their the ories, both before and after emanci pation, we have shown ourselves aLle to live and thrive. A generation ago we came out of bondage without a foot of land, without a home, without a name. Even the clothes which coy- I ered our poorly clad bodies were not 1 ours. Today we have some land, some homes, some money. Yesterday we had nothing; today we own millions of acres of land, pay taxes on prop erty worth millions of dollars, and raise more cotton under freedom than under slavery." But following this impressive narration came a still more important statement, the kernel of the resolutions: "We earnestly recom mend to our people throughout . the country that they teach their children the dignity and value of manual la bor," say the resolutions; "and that they give them the benefit of an indus trial education, which will enable them to enter the world's industries with as much knowledge, skill, and dexterity as members of other races possess. That, for the purpose of se curing competent men and women to lead the race in its struggle for great er knowledge, purer character, better religion, nobler manhood, and larger accumulation of wealth, we must en courage the higher education of as many of our boys and girls as are sus ceptible of higher training." * ♦ ♦ Newspaper comment on the confer ence is very kind and commendatory. The Boston Transcript says: "The advances which the Negro is making along moral and educational lines in his irrepressible rise to a status of worth and respect are each year more distinctly notable and satisfactory. ! The present congress is in itself con i crete evidence of this encouraging fact. An idea of its interest and scope is gained from the subjects discussed, which range from the need of a pro perly trained ministry to the pi'oblems of mechanical work." "The spirit of the resolutions," says the Cleveland Leader, "could not well be improved upon. They prove clearly that the ob ject of the conference was the mental, spiritual, and material improvement of the race represented by the dele- JEWISH MILLIONAIRES "JEWISH."

"The colored people have put their hands to the plow in the educational, business and indus trial fields, and are spending little time in regrets or complainings.

In Manhatten every fourth person is a Jew. These figures are based upon the Jewish burials from time to time, which are as follows: The Jewish burials amounted in 1901 to 7,997, and as the death rate in the most congested Jewish district is little over fifteen per thousand, it implies a population of 533,133 in the middle of 1901. Since that time no less than 39, --j 225 Jews have arrived at New York ! and stayed here, while by natural in : crease of births over deaths another | 12,400 would be added up to August 1 of this year, making a grand total of 584,788. • * * The number of Jewish marriages in Manhattan alone in 1901 was 5,062, which at a very high marriage rate of ten per thousand wouid imply a population of 506,200, to which has to be added the 70,000 Jews in Brooklyn and the increase by immigration and excess of births. * • * The following, from the New York Age, edited by one of the ablest jour nalistic writers of this country and by odds the very ablest among the Negroes, touching the recent riot in New York, will doubtless be read by both Jews and Negroes with much in- terest: • • • Two weeks ago Rabbi Joseph died and there was a big funeral on New Yorko East Side, for the Rabbi was a famous preacher in Israel. But there is a lot of prejudice against the Jew ish race, as there is against the Afro- American race, and some miscreant can always be found to interrupt a Jewish ceremony, whether of a gay or solemn character. The streak of black guardism in the American character, among the cultured and the illiterate, is a disreputable feature which cannot be ignored and which obtrudes itself in most unexpected ways and places, and often precipitates sharp clashes against law and order. When the fu neral procession reached a certain point in its progress it was interrupt -ied by some of the toployes erf a fat [tory; this was iesei&eu u"y Lhi monr'n fers, and a general mix-up ensued, soon j developing into a serious riot. • • « When matters had reached the riot point the police appeared, and, charg ing into the crowd roughly, saw to it that the Jewish mourners were thor oughly shaken up. The New York police can always be depended upon to take the wrong course, to hit the wrong head, and to arrest the wrong man in a mix-up. The Jewish mourn ers were badly used by the police. What did the Jews do about it? Did they accept their clubbing as a mat ter of course? Not much. They put the machinery of the law in motion; they held big meetings and denounced and protested against the outrage; and they will get some sort of redress. They are rich; they are organized; they follow their leaders; they fight for their rights. The Afro-Americans have a great deal to learn from the Jewish people, who have a hard road to travel in this country and most of ■ the countries of Europe; but they keep ; pegging away in all directions, keep |on fighting for a square deal, and 1 making and saving money with which I to back up their contentions. • ♦ • We believe in fair play; we sympa thize with all peoples who are unjustly dealt by, and we hope for the time when the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man will be recognized the world over, and the principles of justice and fair play everywhere pre vails among men. »♦♦♦♦♦♦»♦»»♦♦»»♦♦♦»♦»»♦♦♦» EiJlß|ffl^ stPrpQont <' * I ill I /:?&4^ i: o 13 111 0 '< '< j^Pcofto I; <► Strictly High Grade; Used by <• \\ all Lovers of Really Good *[ O Coffee and Recom- <> y v mended by the ° < > Leading Chefs. o j! <<^Ask your Grocer ;; ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦»♦»♦♦♦»♦»»♦♦ When you subscribe for the Seattle Republican you get a weekly paper that's always full of newsy news.
