Vt T«M, by Mall, |ft to •• Pro-Kaiser in 1917; Pro-Jap in 1920 VOTE AGAINST JONES! Even if we could forgive end forget Wesley Lusitania Jones' miserable appeal for kaiser interests in the critical days of March, 1917, his pro-Jap affiliations in 1920 make him unfit to represent the people of Washington in congress. And his pro-Jap affiliations are REAL; his "prestige" in the senate is only imaginary. Jones has been in congress 22 years, it is true. But he could be there a century and still be negligible. It isn't length of service, but the kind of service, and the personality of the man, that count Neither Senator Chamberlain of Oregon, nor Senator Hi Johnson nor Senator Phelan of Califoroa, nor Senator Borah of Idaho, has been in congress as long as Jones. But each of these Western men commands more respect, more in fluence and more national importance and standing than Jones. Don't be fooled by this talk of Jones' "prestige." Outside of the state of Washington, no one knows he exists. Washington is, however, entitled to a representative who will give the peo ple of this state the service they WANT. Thejr don't want a Jap-lover in the senate, any more than they wanted * kaiser-lover. The Jap question is a mighty serious one; it is going to be more and more important in the next six years, the term of our next senator. It is not conceivable that Senatof Jones could give honest service on this question to the people of the Pacific coast aira to tile state of Washington when his son, undoubtedly because of the senatorial position occupied by his father, becomes associated with Japanese interests in Seattle; in fact, owns stock in the Sumitomo bank, tffe largest Jap bank in this city. This is not imagination. It is fact Harry B. Jones, the senator's son, is a Jap bank stockholder. The Jap issue is a real issue to be considered in the selection of a United States senator. Add to this the pledge taken by leading republicans and by the public in general in 1917 to DEFEAT Jones because of pro-kaiser talks, and you have ample reason for voting against him Tuesday. He cannot be elected in November. He ought not to be nominated to morrow. Vote for Wm. Inglis and keep your pledge to rid the state of Wes ley Lusitania Jones as a political faotor. Col. Roland H. Hartley is an "open shop" candidate for governor, ot the uncompromis ing kind. To elect him governor would be as suicidal for the pcace and prosperity of this state as to elect Hill Haywood, leader of the I. W. W. They are men of the same type; extremists; and one is as bad as the other. We don't want riots and bloodshed in this state because of extreme economic views. Hartley's defeat is a necessity. (•overnor Hart, as proven by "confiden tial letters and telegrams" on the minimum wage question, is also a pliant tool of special interests. He does not have the force nor the vigor of Col. Hartley. Hut he is equally a disturbing factor. He can be swung by men who have special axes to grind. He was their puppet on the minimum wage for women, as clearly shown on page 6 of this issue of The Stai;, and he was the tool of special interests time and again. He is The Prosecuting Attorney The prosecuting attorney's office needs the clean citizenship and character of Mal colm Douglas. He started out to make the fight on his record as a citizen and a lawyer. He has adhered to it. Yet, if any one is entitled to recognition because of his war record, Malcolm Douglas is. He distinguished himself in battle and has won recognition both by the American and the French gov ernments. He went to war tho he had to go in debt in order that his young wife Is field in Bond Theft Investigation CHICAOO, Sept. 18.-—Lloyd H. Wilson.

There are pood men in the race who will NOT plunge the state in any undue strife. They are men of high type and character. There in Senator Geo. It. tamping, of Rattle, a progressive; there is Senator Kd T. Coman. of Spokane, a hanker, a conserva tive. but independent of the special interests either in or out of the legislature; there is John A. (Jellatly of Wenatchce, whose rec ord in the legislature was clean and who has a constructive program. Why take chances with Hart or Hartley? If you are a progressive, you can con scientiously cast your vote for tamping. If you are conservative, you can conscien tiously vote for Coman. These men will he FREE if they are nominated and elected. Hartley and Hart are NOT free men. Vote for safety first. Vote for tamping or for Coman. and baby mipht be able to pet alonjr.
