Since the mind of man runneth not to the con
trary, hjstory has repeatedly reputed itself in the
coming of a like event to one which transpired some
period or time in the past. Mora than forty years
ago W. O. Bush, a man of white and colored blood,
using the racial designations of this country, was
elected a member of the legislature of the state of
Washington and the Bush election to the
first legislative finds a counter-part in the election of
John H. Ryan, of like class identity, to the seventeeth
session of the same legislature. It thus follows as
does night day, what man has done man will do.
Mr. Bush won fame in this state forty odd years ago
in raising the world's finest wheat, and Mr. Ryan has
won fame throughout th> northwest as a publisher.
After all man is but a constant going and coming of
the same thing.
Three members of the city council of Seattle are
to be elected in February and the vital question
among the voters thereof is, shall the three retiring
members succeed themselves or shall new blood be
injected into that more or less august assembly?
Perhaps all of them have done well and their actions
as members thereof will be approved of by the great
voting tribunal of the city, and yet one here and
thore hears more or less criticism of the present coun

An interesting ceremony took place in Boston,
Mass., recently when a portion of the handrail taken
from the Guild Hall in Boston, England, was pre
sented to the City of Boston, Mass. The historical
history of this railing of oak rests in the fact that
upon this very railing rested the hands of our Pil
grim Fathers shortly before their departure to Amer
ica. The British Consul made the presentation which
took place in the Public Libary of Boston, where the
railing will be kept.

ington, aft r having been duly nominated; by bis fel
low Republicans and overwhelmingly elected by the
qualified voters of the state of Washington. Twice
has be been inaugurated lieutenant governor of this
state and after the death of Governor Earnest Lister
constitutionally became governor, but he now has the

this land of the free and home of th> brave and step
by step he has worked his way up from the farm
through the various business vicisitudes and its com
plicated ramifications so common to this country, to
the highest political position in the gift of his fellow
citizens. Though governor of this commonwealth, yet
he is as approachable by the humblest of the citizens
as by the wealthiest. The state o fWashington has
never had a more unostentatious governor than Louis
F. Hart and in the performance of his official du.ies he
displays for less of th> "Big I" and "little v" than
does his private secretary.
