A Coming Woman
Few if any young women of Miss Lodie Maurine
Biggs class have reached the degree of success in th i
Latt.le of life as has she. It is too often the case with
young woman circumstanced as is Miss Biggs that they
early d spair of attaining the gc. al of their ambition
because they early discover that the road they are com
relied to travel in order to so do is a far more difficult
one than the road he young woman of the dominant
eliir. 5 of the citizenry of this country elects to travel
to reach the same goal, yea not only do they dispair,
but actually lose their ambition to rise and shins, h nee
what might have developed into more or less useful
life drops into a state of inertia, perhaps indolenc),
and further still frequently stubborness. Miss Biggs
first saw the light of day In Little Rock, Arkansas, but
with her parents early moved (o Seattlj where she
successfully passed through the grammar and high
school grades and then the university of Washington,
taking tho degree in 1916 in Pharmaceutical Chemistry.
Soon thereafter she passed the civil service exami
nation in the city of Seattle for the bactriological d >
partment and was given immediate employment and
has been on the job ever since. Not having a d gree
in Bactriology she has decided to give up her present
position with the city next October and imm diaely
begin a post graduate course in Bactriology in her
Alma Mater which will require one scholastic year,
after her next graduation she is undecided as o
her future operations, but has been assured employ
ment in much broader fields. Aside from her public
duties Miss Biggs is ac ive in the social uplift and
church work of the city. She resides with her parents
and is both popular in public as well as social circles.
If faithfulness io duty and devotion to principle
count for anything then T. H. Bolton should not only be
one of the six nominees at th 3 coming municipal pri
mary elect;on in Seattle, but should be one of the three
elected at the regular election. Three times before has
he been nominated to serve tha city of Seattle as coun
cilman and it can be said without fear of successful
contradiction that he has s rved the city good and well.
While he was a protege of organized labor when first
a candidate, yet he so early developed into a broad gag
ed city law-maker that he had little or no opposition at
the two subsequent times ha sought to succeed himself.
The editor of this periodically cheerfully recommends
T. H. Bolton to its Seattle readers for their suffrage.
While councilman Bolton has been gcod and true to the
principles of organized labor, yet he has been equally
true to good citizenship in general and as in the past
he should receive an cvcrwhelming majority cf all class
es of voters of Seattle.
After worrying weeks over the street car deal in the
city of Seattle a King County grand jury has conclud
ed its investigation wi hout indicting any one for the
transaction for crooked work in the deal, but broadly
that, there was a hell of a lot of stealing
done. It rapp d former Mayor Ole Hanson and the
members of the city council for permitting the daal to
go through and concluded by saying the street car
system was wortli but five mill'on dollars, s^me ten
mlll'on dollars less than the ciy gave for it, which, if
true, is proof .sufficient that larg \ sums cf monay were
expended by somo one to engineer he deal, all of whinh
reminds the writer that till cf the bandits have not as
yet been land d behind the bars.

Three hundred and forty-three death sentences
were carried out in the British army during tho war.
