Main 305 427 Epler Block Seattle, Washington HORACE RO3COS CAYTON, - - - Publisher 3UBIE REVELB CAYTON, - - - Associate There is nothing left for either the Stand patters or the Progressives to quarrel over. Both the ring and the rascals have been turned out and for the next four years, if the "special interests" of the country get any consideration it will be at the hands of the Democratic party. There are no fewer Republicans in the country now than there were four and eight years ago as will be verified by combining the vote of Taft and Teddy. In spite of the latter's bid for Democratic votes he got none. The returns, however, shoAV that he was far more popular than Taft, but a house di vided against itself must fall. Republicans in the past have been noted for their good judgment, but they went to pieces in the recent campaign. The question now is, can they come back? II 'h up to both I'HetionN of the Republic;!!! party to eliminate their differences and re juvenate the party that it in the future will be the party of the people as it was in the past. "To continue the fight" for the sake of fighting will be courting defeat equally as disastrous as the one recently administered to the Republican factions. Taft is no long a Republican stumbling block and the sooner Teddy is likewise eliminated the sooner will the Republican party unite and drive the arch enemy of the people out of the White House and Congress. It was evident before the Chi cago convention that the Republicans would be defeated and because they had lost their reason. Now get together. The next session of the "Washington legis lature will find as members two innovations —a blind Democrat from Walla Walla and a woman from Bellingham. Politically speaking, the whole Democratic fabric is as blind as a bat, but this will be the first instance of a member being both po litically and actually blind. Just what excuse a blind blind member can offer for being a member is more than can bo fathom ed at this time. As to the woman, her sex has been recently enfranchised and she took advantage of the opportunity and butted in. Let's hope that the first thing she does is to have the body go on record against the members sucking away on ci gars while the House is in session, SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1912.
