LVBOR ELEMENT IN PJLITICS
If the inspired dispatches in Republi
can pa-j" -S -re true, republican national
leaders have decided to break wi'h tie
labor lea '< T - aho have lieretofore been
(ran Iso useful to then). It is now near
ly thirty years since the republican pat
ty began te fool the labor si ntirr.ent of
the chi itry wi' li i's cry of "protection
to American labor." The protection
has turned out to be for the trusts and
those interested in them and not at all
for ft:e wurkii g i lasses ; but with a
strange fotuitv wo: lirigmen wi h their
mer en p v •!itier pail have been tod
dling a!< i g behind republicans, like lit
tle school l oys tunning after the circus
wa,»»ns a- they pass through the village
tlnnk ng the thoughts and saying the
words of the prospei'ns. But now that
the great financial interests have se
cured their tariff piivilrges and estab
lished themselves in econonrc power,
republican leaders feel 11.at they can af
ford to come to an issue with organized
l.ibor in jnjlities, and organized labor is
i< beginning to hear the snapping of their
finder' and to catch now an 1 then an
e ho of 'heir oral jocularly.
Our socia'i-t friends are said to be
p'aying a litile game with the republican
pirtv in this county, with a view to
securing tl e election of one of their iaitb
to the li gislature. Ah the storv gees, the
scheme is to place no socialist ticket in
th? field this fall, but to associate with
the dominant paitj —dining the prim
aries a r letst—so as to secure a bunch of
their deleg-tte? in theet unty convent] n
wh 'te i' • e woid will be to trade any tiling
for tbt ii canditlate for legislature. The
fact that the socialists, who usual.
name their r■ ■ kets early in the similiter,
have not v<t , ailed a county convention,
1 nds i o or to the story.
Tie recklessness that usualiy prevails

B'veral onlookers that it would be well
o i those occasions to have a member of
the fire department to attend solely to
the removal of goods, anil allow none
handled until in lis judgment tl ey were
in danger, and then see to it that what
was carried cut was really saved, no}
broken ti| or damaged.
The galled jade winces. When the

W lien you get a republican political ma
chine like the G. 0. ?. at work, it is
costly and leads to all kinds of outrages
on the workmen. Turn the rascals out.

CONSERVATIVE YET PROGRES
SIVE.
A good many republican statesmen say
thev are in favor of reform, but from
their antecedents and general connec
tion with trusts, railroads and other
predaory corporations it appears not
violently so. Senator Dryden, of New
Jersey, is one of these, and like Senator
E kins, of West Virginia, he stood for
and suppor ed by voice # and vote e\er\
great measure that adorns the matchless
i, cord of the recent session of congress."
"It seems to me," says this modern pil
lar of reform, "that the mental attitude
of I'residen' Roosevelt towards public
questions of our day i- a fine blening of
a broad and courageous progesfiveness
with a wise and steady conservatism that
is altogether admirable." To be progres
sive ami conservative at the same time
may be Roseveltian but hardly in unison,
any more than the attitude of these other
republican statesmen who are trying to
appear to be for vox populi and are
actually for plutocracy. Perhaps this
dial nien'al condition is what draws
ti, e se senators so closely to the presi
dent. Senator Dryden, like Senator
Eikins, of course stands pit and upon
that and the Rock of Uibralter, that pajs
him *i; 5,000 a year salary, he stands
shouting defiance to reformers as ene
mies of the state and of himself
When !*cc eiarv hoot gets down to
business on his visit to our sister repub
lics, and delivers President Roosevelt's
ultimatum that lie has appointed hint
self co'lector of debts on ibis hemispheie
for foreign nation!-, the pi-ople may not
cheer as much as the dispatches report
they are now doing. A debt collet-tor
with a big stick is seldom received with
cheers by individuals or nations.
It is quite the thing now for a congress
men accused bv some of his constituents
of being friendly to coiporations, or not
voting just right on tome matters, to
answer his critics by producing a iertifi
cate oi "good intentions" from President
R osevelt
Wheit has declined in price ten cents
a bushel and cotton and corn are gettit g
cheaper and vet the iepub:icans declare
that the taiitl protects the farmer.
These summer days are pretty apt to
1 reed political roorbai ks, so anything
reported of an unusual nature should be
received with caution.

IS THE UAR SHOALING?
Low Stage of Water on Grays Harbor
Bar Delays Vessels.
During tne lasi few weeks there h.is
been unusua' delay in gettinc ships to
seafioin Grays Harbor owing to the con
dition «>f the bar, and the report has
b'eu ciiculated by some newspa|>erß th.it
the cause was the roughness of the bar.
A visit to tlie entrance yesterdav
showed that this is not the case. The
bar ha; been smooth, yet five vessels
were anchored in .-outh Bay where some
of theru had been for nearly a week,
i waiting, not for a storm to abate, but for
a sufficient depth of water to permit
t lem to cross the bar in safety.
Notwithstanding that there has been a
tidal raise of over feet, the captains
iei>ort but IS or 19 feet of water on the
bar at high tide. Yesterday afternoon
and -vening the tug Traveler began tow
ing the bar bound ships to sea, and at
four o'clock had succeeded in getting off
t vo. As the tide was not full until after
five o'clock, it is probable that the five
vessels got to sea on that tide.
