You know Condo Yes sure! He's the fellow who originated the Osgar and Adolf pictures, and Everett True, and Skygack from Mars, and most of the others that have given Star readers so many

REP. MURDOCK SAYS
SHOWS WEAK SPOT
By Victor Murdock
Congressman From Kansas and Leader of the Progressives
in the House of Representatives.
WASIII N'C»T( >\\ I) C., July 3.—The confession <>f Col.
Mulhall has furnished »l«-tails and proofs confirming a charge,
long made and generally believed, that congress been
more or lcs* under the influence of sj»e( ial privilege.
The Mulhall confession shows special privilege has been
organized to secure special representatives in congress for
the defeat of special legislation.
The sensation in the Mulhall exposure consists in its
detail and its wealth of documentary proofs.
It is enlightening to many also a> to the widespread char
acter of this lobby's operations.
It has long been known that members who served spe
cial privilege were selected by special privilege. It was
assumed, however, that such help was received in a casual
and sporadic way.
This exposure shows special privilege has been or
ganized on a national scale, drawing from an almost un
limited expense fund and working secretly for the politi
cal extermination of congressmen daring to serve the
people and for the political aggrandizement of con
gressmen willing to serve special privilege.
It is inijKirtant that this matter should not pass as the
newspaper sensation of a day.
It is something more than that.
It is a revelation a* to what representative government
may become when it is too far removed from the direct influ
ence of the people
It is a revelation as to the imperative need for more
popular government. Members must be more directly subject
to the control of their people.
We must have more of the direct primary and more of
the recall; qtherwise the form of government which we call
a republic and which contains a congress for the service of
special privilege is a failure.
I repeat we must not forget the lesson in the mere sen
sation of this startling and most interesting revelation.

One of the handsomest confectionery
parlors on the Pacific Coast has been
opened by George Bouckaert at 319 Pike
st., in the new Joshua Green building.
Mr. Bouckaert states that $30,000 has
been spent in fitting and decorating the
new store, and it is the boast that every
bit of the material was "made in Seattle."
The new store will be known as "Bouck
aert's," and an entertaining feature will
be music every evening, furnished by the
Bierman orchestra. Mr. Bouckaert is also
the proprietor of the "Hole-in-the-Wall"
confectionery shop on Second Avenue.
