The old-fashioned circus—the barnacled circus— The circus that's billed as the "greatest of shows;" The dust and the din and the benches that jerk us Each time that the peanut man stands on our toes. The clowns and the freaks and the fakirs that work us, The pink lemonade for which you will pay; The rancid peanuts,—but hurrah for the circus! The old-fashioned circus that greets us today. THE ATTITUDE OF THE WORLD IN THE REGRADE CASE. The management and editing of a newspaper is a public trust. As such it is the mouthpiece of the general public and the reflector of public opinion. When it hesitates in expressing itself in a matter of public moment and truckles to the ideas of certain interests as opposed to the masses, it has sold its birthright for a mess of pottage, and is no longer worthy of the confidence of the people whom it purports to serve. Concerning the regrade case, the World has given the facts truthfully and concisely. When it appeared that a big fight had opened up on a proposition which it had been undersiood was to be quietly settled, the World stated that fact. The first award of damages of $1,200 was a sur prise, a member of the company himself even admitting his own surprise. It was a surprise and a disappointment to the people. In making this assertion the World is basing its judgment on the opin ions of the following: The present Mayor. The present city council. The present city clerk. The present police judge. Two ex-mayors. Several ex-councilmen. And everyone, without exception, who was interviewed along the Street who was not interested as a defendant or attorney in the case. • The wide discrepancy in the testimony given by experts in the casps now in the superior court is ample justification for the position which the World has taken. When one man gives as his opinion that it will cost $4 91 to do certain work and ano her testifies that it can be done for $60 or $65, it would 6eem to be prima facie evidence that someone is wrong. The. public has a right to know these facts, and it is the privilege, the object and the duty of a newspaper to give them. A civil suit in an American court is not a star chamber proceeding. The public is permitted to attend and listen to testimony given, and there is no legitimate reason why this testimony should not be given publicity in the news columns of a progressive paper. The World has no personal spite, it has no wrongs to avenge agains: any person or class of perrons, but it will continue to give the facts in the regrade case or any other ca: c in which the people are interested. TWO POINTS OF MEW. President Eliot of Harvard, in refusing to reinstate two members of Harvard's boat crew, who had been disciplined for an infraction of the rules of the university, had incidentally to turn down a plea for clemency made by President Roosevelt. Roosevelt, with his enthusiasm for athletics, did not like to see Harvard's team weakened on the eve of a contest with Yale. Hence, he advised the substitution of some other punishment. But Prexie Eliot didn't see it that way. It required nerve on his part to run counter to the clamors of the rooters headed by the president, but he had It, and in justification of his act said: "A keen and sure sense of honor being the first result of a college life, I think the college and Uhe gradu ates should condemn effectively dishonorable conduct." THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOB VICE PRESIDENT. It is to be hoped that the report that James S. Sherman, candidate for '■ vice president, will not resign his membership in congress is untrue. If he does not have sufficient confidence in the result of the forthcoming elec tion to relinquish his present position, he should not accept the nomina tion. By retaining his seat he will give grounds for suspicion that he has Borne particular reason for retaining it, and since the republicans are divid ed into more or less radical and conservative groups, his action will result In embarrassment to the supporters of the national ticket. The fact that his name is closely associated with that of Speaker Cannon will not add to his popularity in some whole lot of loyal republicans will be pleased to see his resignation )fo membership in the house of representatives forthcoming. He can't afford to embarrass the national ticket by appearing to be identified *with ajiy particular faction. We believe the report to be without foundation. THE OPPONENT OF TAFT. Public interest now begins to center in the Democratic convention Which is to be held soon. From present indications, it seems as if the out come of that convention in respect to the presidential nominee and plat form can be as clearly foreshadowed as the one held recently. Bryart is the center of attraction, and his ideas will dominate the work of the con vention. Opinions differ as to the probable strength of Bryan in the coming campaign. Republicans should not delude themselves by ringing the changes on previous campaigns. Bryan has elements of strength today that he did not have before. In the first place, he is older and naturally less radical in his utterances. His wide experience and acquaintance with men and affairs will commend him to some who were distrustful of him before. In the second place, the high moral character of the man, his earnestness and sincerity are more generally recognized today than in earlier campaigns. His home life is ideal, and as a citizen he is public spiried. He has constantly grown in the estimation of the community in which he lives. Again, in certain' sections of the country there is more or less discon tent occasioned by ;he recent financial depression. The effects of the de pression have been felt more deeply on the Atlantic and the Pacific sea boards than in the Mississippi valley, and if history repeats itself, the ad ministration in power will be held responsible for this condition. It will be well for the republicans not to have too much assurance this year. Subscription Rates. in the middle west.

William Howard Taft for president of the United States; Albert E. Mead for governor of the state of Wash ington; Wesley L. Jones for the United States senate from the state of Washington; these are the candi dates who should and will receive the support of good republicans in this commonwealth. There is no reason why any re publican in this s:ate should not sup port either Taft. or Mead or Jones. There is no difference between the republicanism of Mr. Taft and the republicanism of Mr. Mead and Mr. j Jones. They each stand for the same I broad principles, so far as the nation and the s ate are concerned. Moreover, these men have dis played, each in his own sphere, a high degree of intelligent and useful activity in public affairs; each in his own way, they are of a kind. In the case of Mr. Taft. public office has meant public work, and as much may be said for Mr. Mead and Mr. Jones. Republicans of Washington who believe in faithfulness and efficiency in the public service; who believe in rewarding men who meet their obli gations in a fair and manly way, can! do no wiser thing than support TafL for president, Mead for governor an Jones for the senate. Such is the piain logic of the po litical situation in Washington, and i the republicans should see to it that there is no break in the line.—Post- Intelligencer. A Wise Policy. Baron Takahissa, who is investigat-j ing the situation in this country re garding the immigration of his coun trymen, shows himself to be a care ful observer and investigator and a wise counselor for his government. In a brief interview this gentle man shows that his conclusions are based on actual conditions, and are without the prejudice too often main tained by foreigners against the con di ions here and in favor of their own countrymen. Baron Takahissa points out that his government desires to thoroughly understand the position of America' on the Japanese quest'c i, "realizingl that certain of its citizens have been! the cause of disturbances on this side of the Pacific, which a : once have! shaken the evenness of localities and disturbed our government, too." The. baron states that his report will "state to the Japanese govern ment that the collection of Japanese j immigrants in the cities of the Paci-i fie coast is detrimental to friendly re lations between these two countries, and is actually, in some cases, an in- i trusion—as far as concerns Ameri cans who labor —on the liberties and i rights of the people who already in habit this country." No representative of any foreign government could be fairer or more considerate than this gentleman, who appreciates the situation as acutely as does any American, and he will recommend a remedy which, if car ried into execution by the Japanese government, will prove beneficial to both countries. Indeed, his idea could with benefit be adopted by oth er governments besides that of Japan. This solution of the vexed problem of Japanese immigration is that "all immigrants reaching the coast be compelled to have in reserve sufficient money to take them across the Rocky mountains and into the agricultural regions of the Middle West."—Taco ima Daily News. A wrestling match will be one of the attractions on the Fourth of July at Leavenworth. The princi pals in the contest will be W. H. Sams of Wenatchee and C. E. Hamil ton of Leavenworth. These men are of nearly the same weight, the for mer weighing 143 and the latter 135. The bout promises to be an interest ing one. More Big Cherries.

V ML HORAN. SOME NICE WHEAT Max Decous, who lives out near Willow springs, was in town Sun day with an armload of wheat which measured five feet in height and contained heads averaging over five inches in length, plump and well filled. He has a homestead covered with this wheat and states that his neighbors have equally as good, and lots of it. The land around Willow springs and north of Trindad, while a little later in season, did not suffer much from the wind and a good crop seems to be assured to those people. Mr. Asbury, who is also farming some land around Willow springs, states that he has prospects of a good yield of wheat, and is not dis satisfied with the outlook. Mr. Christy, who lives south of Frenchman Hills, was also in town this week, and reports himself also pleased with his crop outlook. In the Quincy valley, which is much earlier than the surrounding places, haying has heen in progress about a week, much of what had been intended for wheat being cut for hay. The wheat crop will be short, especially in the sandy land, while some of those In the heavier soil report a satisfactory crop. The few patches of sandy land has ap parently given a black eye to the whole valley. —Quincy Quill. C. W.
