T HERE'S hardly a hiteh yet in the Haryey-Harding hon eymoon, but it looks to some of us old timers as though ‘‘the rift within the lute, that by and by will make the music mute’’ between the President and the Ambassador to Great Britain had already set in, i Col. Harvey is starting out. like the parvot, to talk too much. \Hv made a speech a few days ago which brought his LEnglish listeners to their feet in applause, but it has brought the Americans !\vhnm he is supposed to be rep vesenting to their feet with clubs, bowie knives, and words vou'll find only in the bible. | Among other things, the ““Col ’nm-l" told the Lnglish that America was supposed to have |;:mn- into the war to save I'rance l;nui England-—but such a state ment was false, he said, for the ]n-ul cause of Amervica entering in [vl,‘- war was not to save world | democracy, but to save “‘our own necks.”” Somehow such a state ment doesn’t down with us semi savace Americans—for we have [been led to believe by such |clear-headed and high-minded [nmen as Mr. Wilson, that we went [into the war to save a world’s ihlv;l]s——-ﬂml we firmly believe 1999 of the war workers of America will back up such an ideal.

Weo side at once with Havding, and most strongly rvesent the Harvey ides, Nor are we alone—as demand has come for the vecall of Harvey from men in every walk and position of life, Representatives m Congress, Senators, Clergymon, and thinkers and idealists from all scetions of Ameriea demand a vetraction by Harvey, who has already been. rebuked by the folks at home, This man Harvey is a fly-by night, lMe is smart—but too smart, g konows too much for one man, but not quite enough for two, and that spoils him. He was the original Woodrow Wil son man in 1912, Wilson was eleeted, and Harvey couldn’t run things in the Wilson administra tion, so Harvey sneaked out of the counsels of the democratic party. He worked in 1920 for Mr. Harding, which was all right, but he should not have been giv en the biggest and ripest plum and the next thing we see of him Harvey's head is turned too high an dthe next thing we see of him before his final leap into oblivion will be with a monocle in his eye. He is a sorry representative “American,” Thus far Harding is 0, K. FRUIT SEASON IS ON N OW is the winter of our dis content on Vashon-Maury made glorious by the ripening strawberry, Would we could write a fitting ode to this berry which grows to such size, beauty, and deliciousness on these islands We have picked the strawberry in Pennsylvania, we have grown them in lowa, we have hought them in the Black Hills of S. D. and we have sold them in the state of Idaho—but these islands is the first place we have eaten them. Elsewhere they appealed to us as sour, seeded, hard-cored colicky things which had to he endured, like any other evil, for a few days each season. But Jimminy crickeis—the berries that grow here are as much above the berries that grow in the stafes we have mentioned, as Mt, liverest is higher than the Dead Sea.

STATE WIIL BE SAVED BY “LOUIE."”’ T O county commissioners, city commissioners and council men, school directors, port dis trict commissioners, members of metropolitan park hoard and Township officers: Gentlemen: I am firmly con vinced that the, fundamental principal in taxation is equaliza tion of tax burden; and that the matter of high taxes and low taxes has little, if anything, to do with systems of taxation. Fvery government, state and governmental agency having the authority to dispense public funds and power to levy taxes, is con trolled in fixing the amount of its tax levy by the amount of funds necessary to defray the ex penses. In other words, the only way to reduce taxes is to reduce public expenditures. With our many new gbvern mental functions and numerous disbursing and tax levying agencies, the tax burden in this state has become almost unbear able, With a view of striking at the root of this matter, [ desire to meet in conference with all of you, or your selected representa tives, at the Executive Office in Olympia at 1:00 o’clock p. m. on Monday, June 20th, 1921, in an endeavor to climinate the unnee essary expense and particularly all avoidable expenditures from next year’s budget, so that every county, city, school district and other tax levying agenecy may be able to make some reduction in the levy for next year’s taxes. We are striving in this state to eliminate expenditnres so as to insure a very material de crease in the state general fund tax levy; and if we can make a corresponding decrease in all of the tax levies we may be able to satisfy the public that their con fidence in us has not been mis placed and that we are respon. sive to publiec demands. Sincerely trusting that a good ly number may be able to meet me in Olympia on Monday, the 20th inst., 1 am, Sincerely yours, Louis I.
