"I want to see what you think about it." The door was carefully closed, and the excited man, who had now calmed down, tho his eyes still shone with the light of miraculous discovery and vision, came close to the editorial ear and whispered: "I've found the right mail to be mayor of Seattle," he miyi.

He'll announce he is going to jail every single boot legger in the city. He'll fight the telephone company and make them reduce rates. He'll cut the carfares to five cents and maybe lower than that. He'll fight the gas company and all the rest. He'll make a big hit everywhere. He'll get the votes of the women.

Just plain, every-day IM'-N-K! That's the name of every candidate who promises all these things simply to get the votes. Folks, we don't want BUNK for mayor of Seattle —thin year. We want a man who is HONEST, who is ABIJE, who is FKAKLESS, who is PROGRESSIVE! And the man won't promise to do a lot of things that nil of us who stop to think for a minute know he cannot do and prol>- ably doesn't intend to try. Honesty is the very first requisite of all. The candidate who springs a milk and honey platform filled with luscious pledges is a liar and a faker at the very outset, and we want none of him. A candidate who honestly pledge* himself to do the things that are impossible doesn't know enough to be mayor of Seattle. I.et this he a gentle hint to all candidates who may seek vour votes. Judge them carefully but VOTE AGAINST MR. BUNK! lie won't do.
