Main 305 427 Epler Block Seattle, Washington HORACE ROSCOS CAYTON, - - - Publisher SUSIE REVELS CAYTON, - ■ - Associate It's rather late, politically speaking, to say, "everybody's doing it," but it is not out of order to say, everybody did it. If Jack Johnson is correct in his charge that ''my brother is crazy," it looks as if his brother as well as Jack has had too much Johnson. We might poke run at the state of Mis sissippi for going 150,000 Democratic had not Ohio and the New England states done worse. Taft is happy because Wilson instead of Roosevelt was elected and Roosevelt is hap py because Wilson instead of Taft was elected. Under such conditions we can understand why, the Republican took to the woods. Reports from Wall Street are to the ef fect that, there will he no financial flurry on account of the election of Woodrow Wilson. Does Wall Street know what it is talking about? If it does, how did it find it out? The Seattle Republican was the only newspaper in King County tha^t an aggressive fighv for the election o^*Bß4 ward Cudihee for sheriff, and it came out with flying colors. It's a long lane that has no turn, Mr. Stringer; you know where of we speak. * ' ■ Even the country folk voted against the fair bonds, which was a great surprise to the folks in the city. The fair should be the ambition of the farmer as it is a splen did opportunity for him to get next to the city chap that has money to burn, which he made by combinations and truts hostile to the farmer. It must have been a great surprise to the "Conel" to hear that the South went Demo cratic and that, too, after he had "kicked the niggers out," as a bid for Democratic votes. Had District Attorney Coiner carried out his implied threat and struck Big Bill Mor ris, it is highly probable that, all the coun ty coroner would have found of him over which to hold an inquest, would have been a grease spot. SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1912. As soon as all the election bets are paid up money ought to get easy and return to the routine of business circles. Coming so close to the late election re turns, it looks as if President Taft is not only willing to turn the other cheek, but wants help to pray for his enemies. Uncle Sam got a good many hard knocks in the late campaign, but he seems to be none the worse for his experience. He's all right. Dr. Leonard is a rara avis in the shape of a Methodist Episcopal preacher, if Mr. Casey manages to find $25,000 in his posses sion. Seattle's detectives may get splendid training in the use of firearms by shooting innocent men down as did McNamee and Bianchi, but it's a cruel and barbarous amusement. It begins to look as if there is going to be a religious denominational row in Seat tle which will do the cause of Christ more harm than good. Instead of roast turkey for Thanksgiving, hath«d Turkey seems highly probable. Evidently Jack Johnson has seen better days, but he did not appreciate them. Home rule for Ireland may sound well to one up a tree, but Ulster, a large part of Ireland, does not so see it. In our opinion the "labor vote" divided on the candidates the same as the church vole. No class of voters voted like sheep. Good sense. Col. Blethen is to be congratulated as two out of the 380 papers of the state haVe favorably commented upon his chimes gift to the University of Washington. Some thing is better than nothing. While three Dagoes were kneeling to the tones of the Blethen chimes, 275 students were stuffing their fingers in their ears and exclaiming "damn it." Evidently they did not hear things alike. President Taft played golf while the Re publican party was being roasted and Nero of old fiddled while Rome burned. Is this history repeating itself? Now if M.istah Casey will just sue the voters of the county for not voting for him in the late election and succeed in collect ing damages from them this thing of run ning for judge may be turned mto a profit able industry. VOLUME XIV, NUMBER 34 "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again," must have been the motto of Judge Humphries, for though he has repeatedly failed to become judge, he kept on trying until he is now a judge. One can do most any oldthing, if he or she will just keep on trying. That "young attorney" that stole a march on the appointed superior court judges and got enough votes to be elected to the two months' short term, will pick up n court fee from a case that was not on the books. It begins to look as if Hadese is going to have a Turkey glut for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. It often happens that things come our way when we least expect them. The vote for Taft and Roosevelt com bined would have beaten Woodrow Wil son in every state in the Union save in the South, where a horse thief, just so he was a Democrat, would have won, all of which proves the Democrats are no stronger this year than on previous elections. The excitement of elections seem to be so captivating to the people of Seattle that, they no sooner finish up one, when they forthwith begin another. The recall of Mayor Cotterill is now on the political hoards. » -With Bry/i'n as.^cretary of state Wood row Wilsoaj wilW]fead his cabinet with a men in whom tj^.jfouniry has the most im plicit confidence as being a true patriotic citizen. Keep up the lick, Mr. Wilson, and yon will be sure of- good advice though you may depart therefrom. I ————— The Seattle Republican is of the opinion that, the state of Washington in. general and Seattle in particular, should hold mem orial services in ljQT*or.of the late John L. Wilson. We suggest'that the Chamber of Commerce take the lead in £he matter, but throw it open to the general public. His thirty years' service for the state merits •and deserves more than a mere passing newspaper mention. If lumber is king in the state of Wash ington, from a financial standpoint, this state is in line for a golden reign. Through his professorial emissaries Dr. Kane, president of the University of Wash ington, is trying to control and suppress the country press of the state just as he did the student paper of the University.
