FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1912.
sound of whispering coming from the semi darkness under one of the galleries. At last he paused in his sermon and declared: "If the young people making love under the gallery do not come to me in the vestry before service next Sunday morning, I will name them to the church." It was a chance shot, but next Sunday found twenty couples awaiting him in the vestry. He married the whole bunch to prevent a recurrence of the disturbance. SEATTLE THEATRE. Those who like thrills with their comedy, in other words, everyone who has a taste for melodrama well acted, will find a regu lar 12-course banquet of it at the Seattle Theatre for one week commencing next Monday night, November 25, when Bailey and Mitchell will offer Rex Beach's play of the Far North, "The Spoilers." There are five acts in the "Spoilers" and each seems to try and outdo the other in exciting climaxes. The story deals with a ring of crooks who, under the guise of the law, jumped the valuable claims in the vicinity of Nome during the early gold rush in the North. Study of the situation was personally made by the author and most of his characters are sketched from life, Struve, McNamara, Glennister, Judge Still man and Cherry Mallotte in the play, are well known to the residents of Nome in the early days of the gold fever.

If their offsprings do not Shut Up then they will not jointly partake of their parents' pedigrees. Chicago is credited with having a Mr. Waffle, a Mr. Maple and a Mr. Sirup among her prominent business men, and it has been suggested that, the trio go into the restaurant business and make a fortune out of their names. Munsey's Magazine, it is reported, has offered Theodore Roosevelt, he of Bull Moose fame, a salary of $100,000 annually to take editorial charge thereof. That's some salary, but in that capacity Teddy is worth every cent of it. When George Hagerdorn of North Yaki ma shot to death George Ogburn and wounded George De Foe in a jealous rage he did no more than any man should have done, but he showed the white feather, when he tried to hide behind the skirts of his wife, who had played him false and, who was the sole cause of the tragedy. Men who despoil the homes of their fellow men as did George Ogburn deserve death. Haderdorn was eighteen and Ogburn was nineteen. So perturbed is William J. Burns over the attacks of the Seattle Daily Times that, it is currently reported he is about to give up the cletictive business and go into the foreign missionary work. The question is being frequently asked, why is the editor of the Seattle Daily Times so hostily in clined toward Burns! Did Burns ever do him a wrong? "Not guilty" was the verdict of the Federal jury that heard the case wherein the government charged Edwin F. Myer with having defrauded the treasury while he was chief clerk at the Puget Sound Navy Yard. The district attorney claimed that Myer and his accomplices defrauded the government out of $50,000 or more, but the government attorney failed to make good at the trial and the accused, as said above, was acquitted. Almost two years ahead of contract time vessels will pass through the Panama Canal and thereby realize the dream of two cen turies. France almost became bankrupt over the proposition and turned it over to Uncle Sam who took it up and it now is practically a reality. Its completion gives the United States government the key to the Western hemisphere. Kansas, Arizona, Michigan and Oregon at the late election voted to enfranchise women. "Wisconsin voted on the question, but went on record as being opposed to it. There are ten states in the union in which women have all the right of suffrage. For the first time in quite a number of years both the president and the vice-presi dent of the United States will be attendants of the Presbyterian church at the National Capitol, when Woodrow Wilson and T. R. Marshall are inaugurated. Judge Landis of the U. S. court refused to liberate Jack Johnson on a cash bail of $40,000, but insisted that he give a security bail, and the same to be singed by some one worth that amount of money in real estate. Just why a security is better than a cash bail is more than the average person is liable to figure out, for with the most of us the cash takes precedent over every thing else. It looks as if Judge Landis saw a chance to send Jack to the county jail and could not overlook the opportunity. Johnson may have wilfully broken the law, but he is at least entitled to an even break before the law and not booted about simply because he is a black. A jury found Charles E. Houston and J. W. Bullock guilty of defrauding the gov ernment, and Judge Cushman, before whom the case was tried, imposed a fine of $2,000 and one year's confinement in the King county jail on each of them. The case will be appealed. In view of the fact that Mr. Houston did not profit by the transaction it was thought by a great many persons that only a jail sentence would be imposed upon him. Four more of the Rosenthal murderers of New York have been found guilty and sen tenced to the electric chair. They now oc cupy cells in murderer's row along with Lieutenant Becker. There are still others connected with that most damnable plot, and unless the cogs of justice jump a notch they, too, will get theirs. Another peculiar coincident in names is reported from Greater New York. A Miss Crabbe has married a Mr. Apple, which should be responsible for lots of crabbe apples. John Schrank, the Hungarian, who shot Theodore Roosevelt, has been given a life sentence. We are not in sympathy with death sentences for criminals, but no crime is more deserving of death than when one attempts to take another's life without cause, justification or excuse. Schrank got off very light. William J. Burns, the detective, on whom the wrath of the editor of The Times has from time to time, since the Wappenstein- Blethen expose, been turned on, promises, as soon as he takes care of a thing or two in the East, to come in person to Seattle and make it interesting for the editor of The Times. Rumor has it that Burns says he "has the goods on" the Colonel that will silence his vituperative pen. •
