war has surpassed." Theodore Roosevelt has stood with the people only with his tongue. The first time he ran for office he was heralded as "a clean, young aristocrat." While president he supported Cannonism in the house and urged that the standpatters be kept in power. He has denounced populism and Socialism, while stealing the planks of these parties as a "means of elevating himself to the office of president for a third time. Theodore Roosevelt used his official posi tion in order to advertise himself and also to suppress the news he did not wish to be printed. His threat of suing the Indianapolis News because that paper exposed his part in the scandalous purchase of the Panama interest from France is too well known to require a review. He deprived the Boston Herald of department news at Washington, in cluding the weather forecast, because that paper published matter which displeased him. PERSONS IN PUBLIC EYE. Gen. Ballington Booth has declined to at tend the funeral of his illustrious father. Some time ago he attended the funeral of his sister and declares he was uncivilly re ceived and he therefore lias no desire to go up against another family snub. Commander Eva Booth has sailed for Lon don with the hope of reaching that city be fore her father is laid to rest. Since the split between Gen. Ballington Booth and his father Miss Eva has represented her father's work in the United States. Joseph Leiter, the multo-millionaire, has quit Newport for all time to come, and has taken his children to his country home in Virginia where they may live the simple; life. In spite of his millions his children are to grow up as the ordinary country child, make mud pies, pick berries, go fish ing and go in swimming and do all other things common to the child living in a rural district. This is the second millionaire that has recently quit Newport, which must mean that Monte Carlo is a paradise in comparison. Philander C. Knox, secretary of state, was in Seattle for a short time last Thursday evening. He was en route to Japan, where he goes to represent the United States at the funeral of the late emperor of Japan. The Japanese in the United States are seri ously wondering why their country is being given so much consideration by the United States at this time. Roland Dwight Grant, D.D., died at his home in New Hampshire last Thursday. He was a national character and was well and favorably known throughout the North west. Pie, perhaps, was one of the able divines of the past decade and his unexpect ed death will be mourned by multiplied thousands. King Manuel, formerly the gay lothario of Portugal, who, since he was deposed, has THE SEATTLE REPUBLICAN spent the greater part of his time in the presence of sporting women, is said to be penniless ?ind his credit is no longer good among the money lenders of Europe. What Manuel's mother should do is to have him put in a school for defective youths and perhaps he would come round in time to be put in a manual training school, and come out with a good trade. Joseph Murphy, a one-legged prisoner, promised a Pennsylvania judge that, he would walk to his home 700 miles away, if given an opportunity. He was given the opportunity, which reminds us of the young Negro in antebellum days, who stole his master's horse and rode it to a dance, twen ty miles from home, and hitched the horse to ;i fence, where it froze to death. "All I want, fellers, is fur you lo put dis hos on my back and I sho will hab him in de stable fo morning." Both of them were found dead on the road the next morning.

Independent 208 A Triumpth for the Old Time Methods Old German Eager "Es Gieht Kein Kopfweh" Old German Lager, which increases in popularity season after season, is surely a triumph for the old-time methods of beer making—a case of stepping a foot backward to gain miles forward in the production of the perfect beverage. Some claim magnitude of plant—we claim simplicity. Others claim pure water, some extra sanitation —we make all these claim, and challenge any and all as to quality—and the proof and the secret of our superiority will be found in the bottle that bears the label—Old German Lager. Old German Lager is a rare combination of Bohemian hops and selected malt, and is stored and properly aged by time—not forced artificially or me chanically—but aged only by natural methods, giving us a product that is pure and entirely lacking the bitterness so often found in bottled beers made largely of domestic hops, under modern methods. Our increasing patronage is due, we believe, to our superior product, and we have been compelled to double our storage capacity used for ageing Old German Lager. Those who wish to enjoy a table beer made under these ideal conditions, properly aged—or lagered—will find Old German Lager in pints or quarts at all liquor stores—or telephone the plant, Sidney 75.
