VOTE FOR FITZGERALD, BOLTON, CARROLL!
*-T W * THE: sensible thing for Seattle to do is to elect men who WANT the street railway to succeed. The foolish thing to do is to elect men who want to see it fail in order to justify their dire predictions. The sensible thing to do is to elect men who have no desire to ruin the city's credit by .advocating the Bolshevic theory of repudiating legal contracts. The foolish thing to do is to elect men who would |(uin the city's credit by defaulting on the payment of interest or other legal obligations! C. B. Fitzgerald WANTS Khe railway to succeed. Under Fitzgerald as mayor, and under a nickel fare, too, the railway met all its legal obligations. There was no talk of defaulting. And there was no inroad into the general fund. Fitzgerald WANTS the lines to pay. Harry Bolton WANTS the lines to pay. Fitzgerald, Bolton and Carroll are Seattle's best bets in the councilmanic election.

RKIIW HIK ADDRKMB FROM MANI'HTRIPT Harding's voice, as he spoke his Inaugural address from manuscript cut Into many narrow pages, was firm, resonant nnd a trifle husky.

Woodrow Wilson, who for eight years has headed the government, wus busy with official duties until the close of his administration, gift ing bills at the capitoL Chief Justice White, of the 1 preme court, administered the com- Htitutlonal pledge to Harding. Under the rule of simplicity Im posed by Harding, those who watch ed his Induction into office stood. Thirty blind soldiers alone of the vast assembly were provided with chairs. Diplomats, cabinet officers, generals, men and women alike, re mained standing thruout the admin istering of the oath and the ural address which followed It. Immediately after concluding Ma speech, Harding, accompanied by Mrs. Harding, his tuther and other relatives, rode to the White House, where luncheon was served for the members of the Harding family. That ended the Inauguration, so far as Harding was concerned. He was ready to go to work. Vice President Coolldge, meantime, had started to work by presiding over a brief session of the senate, calli-d in extraordinary session to puss on nominations for Harding's cabinet. IN At C.CRAL DISAPPOINTS CAPITAL SOCIETY As a social event the Inaugural was a disappointment to those who value Inaugurals chiefly for social reasons. There were three unofficial and semi-private "inaugural balls," none of which either the Hardings or the Coolldge* planned to attend.
