SPEAKER ASKS FOR MILITIA TO KEEP ORDER tfIRE'S WHAT A MAN SAID: H[ sa>d It over the telephone yesterday: "Keep " "P ! You're doing good worh!

Can't something be done to stop it to stop this never-ending conflict between Judge Humphries and those wen and women who profess to believe that they are being deprived of the right of free speecht A few days of peace and quiet, and the judge comes again to life with an order to the sheriff for the arrest of five score men and women whose names appear upon some petition that isnt of importance except in the light of future uncertain events! It doesn't matter that this last act of the court's is well within the law! The excuse for it was of the court's own making—those blundering speeches from the bench, and the court's determination to punish men against whom his grit-vance is purely personal! Seattle is sick of it! Were it a conflict that had to do with our pocket book, our bread and butter, or our right to live at peace with our families, we might then, all of us, grow wildly excited and add our mite to the confusion! Hut it isn't! IT'S MERELY THE "HAITIXG" OE A SIMPLE-MINDED MAX WHOM THE PEOPLE MISTAKIXGLY ELE VATED TO THE BENCH AXD WHO JUMPS AS EVERY CAST IS MADE! It adds to the petty quarreling and civic unrest that is keeping the people in a turmoil, and hurting business.

He Gets Into Hot Water Interviewing Geraldine Farrar, the Prima Donna We are not at our ease Geraldine Farrar tried to get clubby with us. but it was no use She tried to appear enor mously animated and interested, and succeeded only in look ing tremendously bored. It was not that we who had gone to the New Washing ton to interview the prima donna do not like music. Per sonally, I am very fond of music. I know a girl who can find her way round the ivories with the best of them. And you ought to hear her sing that sleepy, jerky, raggy little classic. "When the Moon Swings Low"—"Please don't forget me as some girlies do—when the mo-o-o-on swings 10-o-ow" I never get tired of turning the music for that girl when she sings that song, and sometimes I will even join in with a rumbling, uncertain bass. I have a naturally rich voice, but totally untrained. Years ago. before it "changed," 1 sang in a boy choir.
