Mr. Day. Mr. Nettleton and the Port Commission Race There are two mm in the race for port commissioner nt this election greatly differing in their capabilities, their viewpoint* and the probable value of their service to the district, who are yet alike in one particular. They are Julius (J. Hay and Clark Nettleton. Day is primarily a politician. He is running for this office because he wants a political job. In his candidacy he has the hacking of Commissioner Lincoln, who used to be a majority member of the hoard but who now is the minority member. Lincoln's appointees in some cases have been displaced and he is anxious to reinstate them on the payroll. He wlies on Day to help him do this. Seattle has no particular reason for tenderness toward Commissioner Lincoln's political plans and none for Day's. Day deserves to l»e l>eaten because he and Lin ' .jig. * tM PkIM Pull Unitedly for Camp Lewis There's only one reason for maintaining an army in peace times.

Mr. Nettleton is a contractor, a man familiar with business transactions of magnitude. Ha is clean, high minded, fairly progressive. As publisher for a time of an important newspaper he did not show himself to i>e greatly the friend of the port nor notably In sympathy with the aspirations of the average Seattle citizen. Tha Star does believe, however, that, if elected, he would give the port good service.

There is to be urged against Mr. Nettleton, however, one point which the Municipal lengue overlooks—his backing. Mr. Nettleton is frankly, avowedly supported by the "ins" at the port properties. In other words, where Day is the candidate of one contending faction, Nettleton is just as much the candidate of the other.
