DAILWAY SUPERINTENDENT HENDERSON'S report to the mayor, showing the system's reve nues more than sufficient to meet all expenses and ob ligations, furnishes added reasons why we should elect men to the council who are friends of the city railway, and who want it to succeed. Ita enemies, unmindful of the fact that they were undermining the city's financial credit thruout the country, sought to have the city default payment of in* terest legally due on its bonded obligations. Repudiation of this sort is never right—and in this particular instance it was the height of foolishness. The railway's revenues were sufficient, and will be sufficient, to meet all payments—and at the present rate of revenue will be sufficient to pay off the cost of the entire system in 18 years! Had we defaulted payment, what would have hap pened? Litigation would have piled high, and the courts would be busy for years—and the city's credit would be totally ruined. The Skagit project would have to be abandoned, for who would want to buy the city's bonds if the city deliberately defaults payment, altho the bonds had never been held illegal by any court?

Irresponsible men naturally don't give a hang about the city's financial credit Seattle, as a whole, however, has something at stake. Seattle, as a whole, cannot afford to have its credit undermined to satisfy personal politics.

(Sen ators I'alrnrr and llockweU. of King county, were the only eenatora X* oppose the bill. The house paxaed the bill last week bjr a vote of 71 to 1». By their action yesterday the sen ate serve.l notice on the national government that this state ia unrt servedly opposed to Japanese ag grandizement on the Pacific coast. An attempt to have the bill post poned until after Harding'!" Inaug uration was defeated. 27 to 11, when It wu made known that the presi dent-elect would not refer to the Japanese situation in lxia inaugural speech. Altho victory was predicted far the meaaure in the senate, even the most sanguine of the backers of the bill did not hope for such a sweeping and whole-souled Indorsement. From the minute debate was opened It becarne evident that the sentiment of the legislators was for the bill, l'ractlcally every senator was anxious to be placed on record as opposing Japanese aggression in the Northwest. When the final vote was an nounced. President W. J. Ooyle wsM forced to vield his gavel vigorously to quell the enthusiastic demonstra tion. All that is required now for the bill to become a law Is the concurrence of the house In several minor amend ment and the signature of the gov ernor. Senator Morthland. of Yakima, the first speaker. moved that Bill No. 7t be made a special order of business for Monday morning. "I do thin." he said, "not because I am in favor of Japanese infiltra tion here, but because I believe we should not embarrass the incoming administration in its foreign rela tions." Morthland read two telegrams from the Japanese relations commit tee of the Seattle Chamber of Com* merce asking for ftirther postpone ment. This bureau represents the in terests that have been trying to kill the measure by dilatory tactics since it was first proposed. Senator Metcalf, of Pierce, retorted that the state has waited for 12 years for the national government to take action on the Jap question. "It is time for the West to show the Hast that this is a grave and imminent peril," he said. William Wray declared that he was absolutely opposed to further de lay.

"But ! would rather be in h—ll than working against this bill," he exclaimed emphatically.
