Without going into the merits
of the controversy between L.H.
Bowman and the Wenatchee Re
publican Club, a matter which
this paper has taken no part in,
it is our purpose here to lay bare
the game of double dealing which
the democrats of this county are
playing. They are dealing cards
to the voters from the top and
bottom of the puck with a reck
less disregard for the ethics oi
the g&me, caring nothing for the
rules, so they hold the winning
It is of course well known that
■without the aid of a good sized
bunch of republican voters there
is no chance of a democrat get
ting in sight of the official pie
counter in Chelan county. So
far the bunch of republican
votors have not shown a disposi
tion to deliver the goods. Among
the many methods adopted to get
this very necessary bunch is the
foxy ono of appealing to the
prejudice of two classes ol
republican voters, and very cun
ningly are they playing the
game. They are, however, count
ing withoTt their host. The
bunch of republican voters see
that the cards are being deali
from the top and bottom, and
they will not allow themselves
to be used as cat's paws to rake
the official chestnuts out of the
lire for the democrats. They are
discounting the intelligence ol
the voter. The average republi
can knows well enough that after
the election he will only be
laughed at for helping to defeat
his own ticket.
As an instance of how foxy they
are, we have only to call atten
tion to the way they taunted a
certain class of republican voters
a few weeks ago with having a
state committeeman that they
could not respect —that was a
load on the party, and how satis
factory it was to them to have
Mr. Bowman occupying the po
sition of state committeeman
from Chelan county, and how it
would drive a good many of the
best men in the party into vot
ing for the democratic county
Now note the sequel. Two
weeks ago the republican club
of Wenatchee, with the advice
and support of a number of re
publicans of different parts of
the county met and passed reso
lutions denouncing Mr. Bowman,
refusing to recognize him as
state comm i t teem an. Since
that event our democratic
friends have reversed their tac
tics. Now they are approaching
a certain other class of voters,
with long faced, psalm singing,
hypocritical unction, they are
saying, What a shame! A few
republicans meet at Wenatchee
and without the advice or con
sent of the republicans of
other portions of the county they
attempt to depose and discredit
the strongest and best man they
have got, the man who has done
more for the success of the party
than any other man in the coun
ty—the man to whom every offi
cer in the county owes his elec
tion. Such base ingratitude
ought to be rebuked at the polls,
you ought to show them that you
will not stand for such unholy
political conduct by voting
against the republican county
With apparent righteous indig
nation they will swell up like a
porpoise and grow red in the
face, telling about the graceless
conduct of the Wenatchee club.
This is a foxy political game
that our democratic friends are
playing. Very foxy. But will
it win? We do not think it will.
The republican voter has seen
the cards dealt from the top, and
now they are coming from the
bottom of the pack.
Everything is fair in politics,
says the disciple of Machiavelli,
and, while we may not subscribe
to the doctrine, we will be the \
last one to beg the question. j

Recently at a meeting of the
Women's Christian Temperance
Union in Newcastle, Pa., Mrs.
Chas. W. Poulks advised all the
married women to strike against
their husbands for refusing to
give them the right of franchise
so that the women could vote
down the liquor traffic. Among
other things she said :
"If the men do not recognize our
right to suffrage the women should re
taliiite by refusing to cook for the men.
In this manner thu men will soon be
brought to time, anil will recognize a
woman's power."
It has been asserted (by women
we believe) that the road to a
man's purse and to his heart is
by the route of his stomach, and
now the dear creatures also pro
pose to reach his political con
science by the same route, with
a, direct reverse of methods, how
ever, in this latest attacl: on
what has always been cousiderod
an exclusive privilege, Mrs.
Foulks advises her sisters to
starve the men into submission.
Instead of feediug the guileless
animal into the torpid state,
when he readily becomes easy
prey to feminine wiles, she ad
vises what amounts to the use of
force. She really wants her sis
ters to help her take the bull by
the horns.
Mrs. Foulks shows herself to
be a woman of poor judgment
and entirely lacking in tact. Her
sisters will be slow to take her
advice. We know what kind of
stuff Mrs. Foulks is made of, and
we know, too, what kind of diet
is doled out to Mrs. Foulks' hus
band. We know that it is not
the kind upon which Ctosers are
fed. Once in a while one of
these Amazonian females will
take one of these animals called
a man, by the horas, and throw
him over the fence, but the
sex lacks a whole lot of being
convinced that the exception
proves the rule. The wise wo
man, and the wise woman is the
average woman, knows better.
She knows the effect of a smile,
and in the use of cajolery she is
a past master, and then there
are a thousand and owe other lit
tle arts that border on the Mach-
iavellan, known only to the wise
woman and the married man who
is like nothing so much as putty
in her hands. And then, when
all else fails to bring this stupid
old animal to time, when he still
holds out and shows a tendency
to sul or balk in the matrimonial
harness, like the good general,
she has her strongest force in
reserve. If she cannot fetch him
with tears he is indeed a tlinty
hearted wretch who is fit only
for "treason, stratagems and
spoil," and should be cast into
outer darkness.
Where is the married man who
has not had his heart softened
and the strings of his purse loos
ened by feminine tears. Tenny
son sang "Tears, idle tears, I
know not what they mean," but
that was surely before he got
married. After he married he
knew better. He found out then
what tears meant.
No, No. The feminine world
will never take Mrs. Foulks' ad
vice or take the bull by the
horns. The married men, bar
ring the occasional exception,
will still get their three meals a
day, and on occasions they will
get something extra.
The republican who votes for
a democrat may expect to be
taunted with the fact just as Mr.
Prank Reeves taunted a republi
can in his speech last Saturday
night at the pavilion. The dem
ocrats want your help to elect
themto office, and afterwards will
laugh at you for deserting your
It must be very unpalatable to
that class of voters who were
enthusiastic supporters of Mr.
Bryan and everything that he
stood for to face about and sup
port Mr. Turner and what he
stands for. It may be easily
supposed that the followers of
Mr. Bryan had much more sin
cere and deepseated convictions
than Mr. Turner and can not
with equal facility turn their po
litical coats.
In his speech last Saturday
I night at the pavilion Mr. Frank
Reeves criticised tho Echo for
advising all republicans to vote
the ticket straight. This paper
has at least been consistent. It
has not picked out two candi
dates on the republican ticket
and urged that they be support
ed above all the others; neither
has it asked democrats to
vote the republican ticket.
This paper believes there are
enough republicans in Chelan
county to elect every man on the
ticket if all vote their principles.
Will the populists who believed
in flat money and government
ownership of public utilities, and
the free silver republicans, all of
whom were taken into the demo
cratic party uuder the wing of
the Kansas City platform, vote
for George Turner, the most
rabid gold standard, tri»st sup
-1 porter in the state of Washing
ton? The man who defeated the
wishes of Mr. Bryan at Olympia
last spring and prevented a Bry
an delegation from going to St.
Louis. It is not believable that
men with sincere convictions
can be led like sheep to the

np. You can not promote party
organization by voting for the
head of the ticket and scratching
the bottom. If you believe in
the principles of the democratic
party, its methods, its practices
and its past record, vote the tick
et from the bottom up. On the
other hand if you are a republi
can and believe in the principles
of your party, if your best inter
ests lie in the success of the re
publican cause, if you believe in
continuing it in power, we un

'Ink. - a Telling Speech, to a CJood
Crowd In the Pavilion Wednes
day Ntjjlit. Hc»ry Cram Talks
' i on County mvur-.
The audience that greeted Congress
man W. E. Humphrey in the parilion
on Wednesday ntght was somewhat
late in assembling, but as it had been
told around that the l»nd would play
before the speaking began, and ihe boys
were a little late in putting in their ap
pearance, the speaking did not begin
until 8:30.
Mr. Henry Crass, of Wenatchee, re
publican candidate for County Attor
ney, was the first speaker. Mr. Crass
confined hi 9 remarks entirely to the
County ticket and to County affairs.
He advocated the election of the entire
County ticket, because it was made up
of honest, capable and worthy men that
deserved the support and the contidence
of the entire republican party. He
made no special plea for the election of
any one oi' two men on the ticket, but
asked all republicans to give Uie ticket,
the whole ticket their solid and un
divided support. In regard to Mr. Dill
he assured the voters that he was well
qualified to fill the position of Judge of
the Superior Court, and suggested to
those who were not satisfied on this
point to go, not to Mr. Stsiner's politi
cal supporters, or to those who were op
posed to Mr. Dill, but to the records
and to Mr. Dill's many clients. To the
members of the bar of Wenatchee,
many of whom would testify to his fit
In regard to his own candidacy Mr.
Crass was too modest to say much. He
said he had lived in the County more
than two years. Had eime here to
stay and would stay even if he was de
feated. He had no other occupation
than the profession of law, and said in
conclusion that if elected he would ad
minister the duties fairly, impartially
and to the best of his ability.
Congressman Humphrey ma<?e one of
the most effective talks* that hare been
made in this campaign. It was rather
short, but touched just those points
which the voters wanted to> hear about.
He had close attention und was fre
quently applauded
.In relation to national affairs he
said the real issue in this campaign
was: "'Are present conditions saiisfact
ory? Shall we vote for Rooaevelt anil
Fairbanks and have continued prosper
ity or shall we vote lor Parker and
Davi-i and have hard times, poverty and
rags?'' For as certain as night follows
day these conditions will follow dem
ocratic success at the polls. He drew
a most striking comparison of condi
tions tinder the lust Cleveland admin
istration and the conditions under Me-
Kinley and Roosevelt. He quoted and
compared ligures ooreriog tho employ
ment of labor. The consumption o[
coal, value of exports, sale of postage
stamps and a number of other
things timing the year ]903 and the
last ysar of the Cleveland administra
tion in a most convincing way. He al
luded to the vast amount of money
spent <m the Navy, in prosecuting the
rfpanish-American war, paying for the
Philippine Islands, the Panama Canal
and for pensions. All this MM done
without increasing the public debt, in
seven ytars, and set this against the
sale of two hundred am) sixty million
dollars' worth of Umds in time of pro
found peace uuder President Cleveland.
He said the republican party was a
party of construction. It was develop
ing tbe Philippine Islands, it was build
ing the great Panama Canal, it had
inaugurated over thirty thousand free
delivery mail routes, it tv:u opening up
vast bodies of arid land by irrigation, tl
had a scheme for aiding the building of
good raiul->, it believed in providing
work for the unemployed American
laboring man. The democratic party
was a party of destruction. Under tbe
last democratic administration, when
that infamous, laundering measure
known as the Wilson bill was passed,
the American market for American
products was destroyed and tho result
was that factories closet), shops* fchut
down, hanks failed, mercantile estab
lishments sass unfed and hard times and
poverty tookjtheplace of pro»j erity and

accepted the nomination for governor
of Washington on the democratic tick

nied that he had slandered the memory
of the gentle McKinley and villifled
Roosevelt and the American soldier*
in the Philippines, but the Congres
sional Record told a different tale. The
record showed that every charge of
this kind that had been brought against
Mr. Turner was borne out by the rec
ord from which he quoted. He said
the cold and naked truth about James
Parrel coming to Tacoma during the
time the republican convention was in
session was that he came there at the
request of friends of Governor Henry
Mcßride who were endeavoring to
make a deal with a lot of Taooma poli
ticians In which the United States Sen
atorship was involved. That while the
deal was perfectly legitimate and prop
er, the nomination of Mr. Mead grew
out of the fight between Seattle and
