Agreeing Against Carlyon Bill
While differing on many of the public questions, the
republicans and democrats of this state, as expressed l>>
their conventions, are practically in agreement on th»
Carlyon $80,000,000. road bond proposition. Neither party,
it appears, wants to sponsor the measure and go before
the people for approval.
At Bellingham, the attempt to secure fer it an indorse
ment was short-lived. It died before it even reached the
convention floor. The platform committee. l>eing warned
that a fight would b« made on the Carlyon bill, determined
that wisdom demanded it should Ih» omitted without fur
ther ado.
And in Seattle Saturday, the democrats went a step far
ther. They not only refused to approve the measure,
but they definitely committed themselves against it. Ihe
resolution condemning the Carlyon bill is plain and specific.
It reads as follows:
"In his last message to the legislature. Governor Lister,
with an unequaled experience and information in the mat
ter of state highway development, demonstrated that the
bonding scheme (as contemplated by the Carlyon bill)
was unnecessary and wasteful, and would not advance
the construction of good roads as well as the proven 'pa>
as we go' policy. Notwithstanding his urgent recom
mendation against the plan, the republican legislature
enacted a law providing for $30,000,000 state bonds,
thereby binding us to *12.000.000 interest charges on an
iron-clad 20-year schedule, mortgaging all motor ve
hicle license revenue for that period and obligating state
taxation to whatever additional extent may prove neces
sary—and all for what?
"The additional expenditure of $5,000,000 per year for
the ensuing six years upon a fixed schedule of highways
named in the bill; a prescribed class of construction prac
tically limited to a single type without a chance for com
petition and a consequent compulsion to highest monopoly
costs; an authorization for unlimited purchases of con
struction machinery, plants and materials and backing of
contractors from public funds, yet without a line of au
thority permitting the state to do any of the work by
direct administration and day lal>or; a discriminating
•joker* provision for rebates to a few favored counties
for previous permanent construction of some of the sched
uled roads, while denying similar compensation to other
counties which have made larger permanent highway
These detail iniquities of the bonding measure are suf
ficient to identify its origin and condemn the scheme, but
there is also the underlying fact that the people of the
state of Washington are already providing fully $8,000,000
annually for permanent highway construction from cur
rent taxes, motor vehicle revenues and county bond issues,
to which at least $2,000,000 federal' aid is being added,
altogether assuring at least $10,000,000 annually for perma
nent highways for an indefinite future period.
"This amount is already proven to be beyond available
OOnstruction capacity, and is resulting in a glutted contract
Market with increasing contract prices and leaving large
amounts of collected funds lying unused in the public
treasury. Under such conditions the incurrence of $30,000.-
000 debt and the 20-year obligation to $12,000,000 interest
becomes a monumental waste.
"Fortunately, the people have the last word at the No
vember referendum. We recommend that they confirm
the wise and prudent counsel of Governor Lister and reject
Mill huge proposal of public plunder for special interests.
"It is • coincidence that the $12,000,000 of interest which
will be saved by defeating this >30,000.000 bonding scheme
will more than cover the $11,000,000 which will be required
to p«y the soldiers' compensation. The republican legis
lature of 1919 hurried the one and buried the other.
"With an impending campaign, and the need of a parti
un bid for the soldier vote, the extra session resurrected
the soldiers' compensation act but refused to make the
fond available as an immediate emergency, passing it
on to the people's vote in November. We urge that the
voters avail themselves of the double opportunity to pay
the just soldiers' compensation delayed by republican po
litic*] cowardice, and save the $12,000,000 interest waste
bjr defeating the $30,000,000 road bond scheme."
It is not necessary to subscribe to party prejudices to
mcognize the truth of the argument against the Carlyon
bill. As ft matter of fact, if party blrfme is to be attached
for the passage by the legislature of the Carlyon measure,
the democratic members have something to answer for, too.
Kit parties aside—and regardless of party—the Carlyon
bill must stand or fail on its own merits or faults. And
the county convention, in its platform, sets out some
mighty strong arguments for its rejection.

Slowly the mind of destiny is carrying

That manifest purpose is the oneness of
mankind. The history of the universe pro

to order, from competition to co-operation,
from the spirit of national selfishness, which
is empire, to the spirit of national intel

This trend is l»eing manifest now in the

It is the beginning of the healing of the

that unity of political forcey that is already
under way in the Ix*ague of Nations.

Own This Attractive Home
at Alderwood Manor
ALL the modern conveniences of the city bungalow are j
built in this cosy nest. This prosperous 5-acre farm, with j
its berry gardens, filbert nut and fruit orchard, vege
table gardens and poultry houses is one of the show places at
Alderwood Manor. A woman's touch has given this little home |
a charm that makes it the envy of city friends and visitors.
The cost of this house, plus five acres of rich soil, is less J
than a city home of similar type on a narrow city lot The
Taylors made the start about two years ago on comparatively
nothing in the way of cash capital. Today their holdings rep- !
resent a value of approximately $4,000. The possible income
from their five-acre farm is not less than $3,000 net per year. !
Mr. Taylor is an electrician and finds a steady demand
for his services, at good wages, right at Alderwood Manor.
The same advantages are open to many trades.
Are you interested in owning a little farm
• with a big income—only 45 minutes from
Seattle—with the finest electric car service in
the Pacific Northwest? The way is easy if you
will spare us a few minutes of your time to
explain the beautiful Alderwood Manor Plan.

thin great task. The sum mentioned is
enormous. It only seems so, however, be
cause it is a union of many small sums.
It represents the benevolent energy of about
fifteen million persons.
If the people of the United States have
heretofore been spending two billion dollam
a year for alcoholic li<juor they ought to
Ik- able to ftpend one-tenth of this amount
a year to make the world a decenter place
to live in.
In no sense is the movement narrow and
sectarian. It antagonizes nobody. It is
hostile to no religious organization which
is not of its membership. It simply aims
to unify all the bodies which compose it
in the effort to accomplish those ends they
have in common.
It will tend t« do away with one of the
most irritating features of philanthropic I
work, which is the working at cross pur-k
po. es by various bodies.
The men whose names are at the head ot.
this movement, such as John K. Mott and"
James M. Speers, are such as command
general confidence.
If the church and the pastor in your
home town arc doing good by keeping up
the morale of the place, then this move
ment will do good by improving the moral®
of the world, for it is an attempt to realize
the greatest of truths—that the world is
our home town.
