Late Legislators Cannot Become Can
didates for State Offices.
TACOMA, March 22.—Because of
the salaries increase no members of
the state legislature can become a
candidate for any state office at the
next general election. This bars
Speaker Falconer of Snohomish, Sen
ator Poison of Chehalis and Senator
Paulhamus of Pierce, all of whom
have been spoken of as possible can
didates for governor.
The salary of the governor was
raised from $4000 to $6000. Section
12 of article II of the state constitu
tion says: "No member of the leg
islature, during the term for which
he is elected, shall be appointed or
elected to any civil office in the state
which shall have been created or the
emoluments of which shall have been
increased during the term for which
he was elected."
The language is plain, say good
constitutional lawyers. They add that
Governor Mead could not have de
vised a better method of blocking the
progress of such a formidable oppon
ent as Speaker Falconer. It will be
amusing to watch an attempt to
shelve Falconer without his consent.
Of course, the bar that may shut
him out of the governorship bars him
also for lieutenant governor for the
salary of that office was raised from
$1000 to $1200.

What Should President Roosevelt Do?
A movement has been inaugurated
by the North American of Philadel
phia to ascertain the opinions of the
people all over the United States as
.to what President Roosevelt should
do at the end of his present term.
The movement to obtain this consen
sus of opinion will be properly term
ed a "national primary." The North
American has invited fifty-five of the
leading newspapers of the United
States to contribute directly to com
pleing the canvass.
Tbe Post-Intelligencer of Seattle
will take up the work for the state
of Washington and invites every one,
no matter what their political faith,
to write a one-bundred-word letter to
that paper for publication in the Sun
day edition within tbe next six weeks
giving their opinion as to what Presi
dent Roosevelt is best fitted for.
In writing letters these conditions
must be followed:
-4. Letters shoufcfr cot Sain 100 !
words pr less. Wl
2. They must be addressed "Roose
velt Editor, Post-In^liganoer.''
3. Writers should afin to explain
24 X. Wenatchee Avenue.
30% Wenatchee Avenue
clearly why they would urge the ca
reer they select as that best fitted
to the character and ability and ex
perience of President Roosevelt.
4. Writers should give their names
and address; but if requested initials
only will be printed.
There are several distinguished ca
reers open to President Roosevelt.
Many people believe he should be re
nominated for the presidency. Im
portant educational Institutions
would welcome him as their presi
dent. Tbe cause of International
peace is lndissolubly associated with
him., Literature is his serious avo
cation. The senate, a governorship,
the railroad problem, the cabinet, the
Philippines, diplomacy, the Panama
canal, any of these may open to him
opportunities of broad usefulness.
While President Roosevelt may not
adopt the plans most generally pro
posed by these letters, it may be ihat
they will have some influence in his
future career, and we cannot see that
any harm-can come from this canvass
