"Hoch Dem Jones!" - A German-American association of Spokane, the Spokes man-Review says, adopted resolutions approving the coarse of Westey L. Jones in the United States senate, and then rose and drank a "hoch" for him for his filibustering speech of Saturday night. Think of it! That speech will pursue him unto political death. It stamped him as unfit—unworthy the confidence reposed in him by this loyal, patriotic state of Washington. It gave aid and comfort to an enemy at a critical moment in the republic's history. "Hoch dem Jones!" German sympathizer* were quick to interpret his attitude, of course. Now let him, by way of compensation for his base philippic, get all the aid and comfort he can out of his performance from hyphenated quarters. The commonwealth itself, unhyphenated, has emphatically made known, thru the legislature, its undiluted and undcfiled Americanism. The Spokesman-Review says: "Senator Jones' conduct is not so reprehensible as that of the twelve senators who went to the last ditch, but he has not exculpated himself by seeking cover at the last minute. In a critical hour in his country's history, when the German government defies our just plea for humanity and law, he is found pleading for the kaiser and against the president." • Excepting Judas himself, as exemplified in the perfidious spectacle by "Gum Shoe" Rill Stone, recreant chairman of the committee on foreign relations, Jones' conduct, the Post- Intelligencer holds, was quite as reprehensible and unforgiv able as that of any of the twelve filibusters who encom passed the shameful betrayal. He abetted them, holding the floor and killing time and accompanying the conspirators to the very last ditch. Sign ing the round robin at the eleventh hour did not help the situation or exculpate him, or palliate his miserable role, in the very t least. A senate made up of men like Wesley L. Jones, the Spokane paper adds,, "would be a poor staff for the admin istration in time of difficulty and peril." And poor stuff a. 1 } well. Down with the tribe!

The Spokane Press is right! Why take chances with doubtful candidates when there are good men in the race? Why take chances with Hart, the pliant tool of selfish interests, or Hartley, who, because of his fanati cal opposition to organized labor, is bound to create as much trouble and turmoil in this state as the wildest eyed LW. W ? Why risk the welfare of the state when honest progressives can conscientiously support George B. Lamping for governor, and honest conservatives can conscientiously support Senator Ed Coman? During the past week a letter went out from Gov ernor Hart's campaign headquarters to each of 1,200 state employes directing that they send out a personal letter to 15 voters, each urging Hart's election. That would mean a letter to 180,000 voters. Do you believe in this kind of machine control of state affairs? Do you want a political machine perpetuated by Governor Hart! Whether you are a progressive or a conservative, It Is time for you to stop and reason this- thing well Neither Hart nor Hartley ought Jto command your vote.

According to Alice Clements, veteran Chicago policewoman, the lellghts and thrills of a pleasant, harmless flirtation are matters of the past. Ulrls have run the 'art" Into the ground, she said today. Where young women formerly would start a young man's heart beating fast by a demure look, or a lifting of the eyelid, the girls of today have no time for such acting, "Nowadays girls Just let them ■•elves be picked up." said Mrs. Clements. All a bo* has to do is to tip hi* hat and get a girl." Girls Mrs Clements said, are more familiar with men now than In the past.
