The republican press of the state
has howled and howled and kep
howling about the "populist exemp
tion law" and yet every one o
them would gladly take every ad
vantage of the same, and at the
game time they forgot to tell you
that it was a republican suprem
court that declared the same un
constitutional. The fact of the bUf*i
nees U just this. The law is no
more ■ populist measure than a
republican measure. It was Dal
Lech, the senator from Yakim
county who introduced the bill il
the senate. We here reproduce i
synopsis of the bill.
S. B. 141, by Lesh—ln the first
section provides that there shall be
exempt from taxation and attach
ment to every householder personal
property to the value of $1,000 in
addition to the real property ex
empt under section 4*>o. of volume
2, of Hill's Statutes and Code of
the State of Washington, but no
property shall be exempt from ex
ecution for clerks' laborer.-' or me
chanics' wages earned within the
state, nor shall any property be
exempt from execution issued
upon a judgment again-t an at
torney on account of any liability
incurred to his clients on account
of any money, or other property
coming into his hands belonging
to his client."'
Dan Lesh is a republican, was
elected to the senate as a republi
can, the measure was supported by
republicans and became a law by
and with the assistance of republi
can votes. These facts ought to go
a long ways in putting to silence
the wild gabble of the republican
press and party of the state.
McKINLEY's Maine message is
no credit to the exalted office that
he occupies.
ELEVEN thousand employes in
the Ponomah cotton mills at East*
ville, Conn., went on a strike Apr.
4, against a reduction of 10 per
cent in wages.
TacoMa has always been a re
publican swamp and the G. O. P.'s
have always carried the elections
there and held all the oflices with
the single exception of A. V.
Faucett, mayor for a short time,
and he got in through personal
popularity and the worthlessness
of his opponent. The Dutch have
simply captured Holland.
BIATTLE has never been carried
by the fusion forces in any election.
The republicans have had complete
control there for six years past.
Two years ago Black was elected
mayor by the republicans with a
majority of over a thousand votes;
this year Humes only had about
seven hundred majority, and the
P. I. goes wild howling about the
republican gains, and populist
losses, A few more such losses will
put the people's party in control
of that city.
The Dawn favors no scheme tha
will allow or admit of the destruc
tion of the people's party organiza
tion in this state or county. If the
people's party abandons it.- organ
ization it will be moped off the
earth in less time than it takes, to
tell it The idea of making every
thing in common with a part}' or
two parties that probably have le.-s
than half the votes of the people's
party is absurd. When the demo
cratic party had two votes to our
one did it offer to fuse and divide

Old Point Comfobt, V*A.,Apr. 13
—The flying squadron sails at 2
o'clock under sealed orders for the
up the oflice-? Not much: We
want to see all the reformers of the
county and state get together on
sound platforms and nominate men
that we can support without hav
ing to hold our nose while doing so,
and we shall labor to that end. and
we want to see each party main
tain its organization. It strikes us
that something is rotten up the
creek when populists are asked to
abandon their party organization.
•Several democratic organs in the
state are advocating this idea, but
no populist paper ha- so far spoken
in regard to it as yet.

Easter, the anniversary of the day
of the resurrection of our Savior.
St. Andrew's church was artfully
decorated for the occasion. The

roses, lilies and carnation.s Other
decorations were appropriate and
effective. Services were conducted
at 10 a. m., also :! p. m.. by the

The reporters discovered during Li Hung
Chang's stay in this country, that he took
every thought for his health. He livei
upon the simplest of diets and never passe(
a day without consulting his physician
He limited his toil to a reasonable nutnbe
of hours, and would not deviate from his
rule in this matter. American men follow
just the opposite practice. They work v
the limit of endurance, will not even take
the proper time for eating, resting am
sleeping, and never think of their health
until it is gone. There is a wonderful mcd
icine for hard-working men. It is Dr
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery. I
takes the place of a physician. It keep
away ill-health and restores health when i
is lost. It is the great appetite sharpener
blood-maker and flesh-builder. It makes
the digestion perfect, the liver active and
the blood pure and rich. Medicine dealer

" My husband had been a robust young man.'
writes Mrs. M. J. Tedder, of Ellington, Reynolds
Co.. Mo. "When he wis Ji years old he begai
to cough very hard. He had pains through Ids
chest aud lungs. His mother and the rest'of his
family had died with consumption. He cm
tinned to cough every winter, until in 1883 he
had an attack of pneumonia. His cough grew
worse and worse. He would vomit immedtateh
after his meals. In i ; nS he coughed night am
day. He wr.s getting very weak and had no
appetite. He commenced' Dr. Pierces Golden
Medical Discovery and 'Pleasant Pellets.' He
improved. His appetite got better. When he
had taken seven bottles he looked like a new
man and felt like a new person. He weighs
mure than he ever weighed before. He gained
twenty-eight pounds and is cured."
