THE * ELLENSBURG DAWN.
One year, if paid in advance, fIJH Entered Nov. ">th, 1594, at the postoffice, Ellensburg, Kittitas county, Washington, as entitled to second-class postal rates. Office south side of Fourth street, between Pearl and Main streets, tear "f Geddis ROBERT A. TURNER. One convention, one ticket in Kittitas. Thk credit system is a panic pro ducer. It never fails. No reform can make headway without active reformers. You cannot convince a man that he is mistaken by calling him a fool. The democrats acted wise and patriotic in the conference last Saturday. Thk man who never made an enemy is not worth a continental to his country. It is said to be better to be right than president. Well, there is cer tainly a wider opportunity. To reject an idea because it is new is not proof of good sense; it is a proof of bigoted ignorance. What woul.i be the market value of gold bullion if the govern ment had treated that metal as it has silver? If you are engaged in doing any thing good for the world you may reasonably expect that a large part of the world will hate you. A SERMON shaped to fit the con science of the biggest contributors, will never make any christians and goes a long way toward filling the world with infidels. We do not believe or talk as many brethren of the republican press do—that all who do not agree with us are fools or scoundrels, and when a man claims that all men in other parties are scoundrels, he shows that his case is hopeless, for he must get these scoundrels into his party before it can win. Lots of avowed patriots are not patriotic enough to raise their voice in protest against public wrongs in this country. They are christians and patriots abroad and Turks and traitors at home. And : 'the woods are full of 'em." Their favorite rendezvous is about court houses and law and loan offices, hotel lob bies and saloons. Tampehixo with justice in El lensburg is going to be the cause ot come one getting hurt. Some one will come along and try to play the smart act with some lady and will get filled full of cold lead. He will not escape as well as did the stranger in this city last week, who was allowed to go scott free, and hob-nob on the streets in a hilar ious condition. Better not trample justice. It may be your wife, your daughter, or your intended next time. THE STATE CONVEN- TIONS WANTED. At a mass meeting of the citizens of Ellensburg on Tuesday in the Commercial Club rooms the follow ing resolution was unanimously adopted: "Resolved, That it is the sense of this meeting that efforts should be made to obtain the state meeting of the different political conventions in this city during the present campaign, and to that end we re quest that the several political or ganizations of this county use their best endeavors to have this city selected for such meeting, and we pledge ourselves to assist in caring for the members of any such con vention or conventions." Let the several members of each of the three executive committees at once write to prominent workers of the several parties and urge them to work for Ellensburg as the place of holding the state convention. It is the proper place, being centrally located, railway east and west with ample accommodation to care for all of the conventions at the same time. Work while it is clay and work hard. STAND UP AND ANSWER Suppose this government in a momfnt of sublime patriotic frenzy should issue five hundred or a thousand million of dollar- of non interest bearing "bonds,"that is of legal tender treasury notes tocarry on this war. who would be the first to refuse and who would be the first to accept them? Hold now. Who would refuse? Who would kick. • Would the seventy million of "plain common people," who con stitutethis nation.' Would they .' I- there a farmer, a coal digger, a furnace man, a mechanic a mer chant, a doctor, a preacher, a foun dryman, a baker or a candle stick maker, or a workman of any kind in the whole United St;ites who would refuse a legal tender issued by the United State- fer the defence of Old Glory? Not one. Xo, not one. And you know it. Who then would kick —would not trust the United States for a non interest "bond"' of the kind described? Wall street would kick. The Rothschilds of London, Hamburg, Berlin an Frankfort on the Main would kick. They would rather see these U nited States ever lastingly dammed first than to accept non interest bearing notes. That is the difference between the people the seventy million- in these United States and the handful of money sharks. Are you with the seventy million or with the few money sharks? — f*ittsburg Kansan. Call for a Meeting of the Ex ecutive Committee. Tacoma, June 23, 1898. The members of the executive committee of the People's party of the State of Washington are re quested to meet at Tacoma, Wn., on Wednesday* July 6, 1898, at] o'clock at the old court house, to set a date for the state convention, make an apportionment of dele gates and transact such other busi ness as may come before them. F. R. Baker, Attest: State Chairman. A. P. Tugwell, Secty Democratic Meeting. The following circular has been addressed to each member of the Democratic State central committee by H. T. Jones, chairman, and Thomas Maloney secretary: "You are hereby notified that a meeting of the State Central Dem ocratic Committee will be held in the City of Tacoma on Wednesday July b, 181)8 at 11 o'clock a. m., for the purpose of apporting the dele gates among the several counties of the state, fixing the time and selecting the place for the next Democratic Convention and trans acting such other business as may come before the committee. A full attendance is requested. Does Baby Thrive? If your baby is delicate and sickly and its food does not nourish it, put fifteen or twenty drops of Scott's Emulsion in its bottle three or four times a day and you will see a marked change. We have had abundant proof that they will thrive on this emulsion when other food fails to nourish them. It is the same with larger children that are delicate. Scott's Emulsion seems to be the element lacking in their food. Do not fail to try it if your children do not thrive. It is as useful for them in summer as in winter. Ask your doctor if this is not true. SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemists, New York Narmm. Old Gkken Hokn. Wonder if anybody cares to hear from "Old Green Horn" again. IWe will at a venture get down a few things wise and otherwise — mostly otherwise. Will Woodyard has given his many friends an agreeable surprise by coming back to this country after an absence of about two years. This is the way they nearly all do. There must be some | ecu liar attraction about this country, as a great many leave the valley badly disatisfied but soon we find them back again, an evidence that Old Kittitas is not the worst country in the world. We hay lived in quite a number of places, but have found none better than this, ;1 1l things considered. Well we have had our annua! school election and the following' officers were elected by an over-, whelming majority: John Filer, director for a term of three years; Geo. C. Charlton, director for al term of two years and W. S. Rogers, I clerk. These are al! important of- | (ices and there is just as much honor in the efficient performance of the duties appertaining to them las in filling the presidential chair. It i- strange the people take no more interest in matter pertaining to our public schools, when they are of such vital importance. .left' Stanfield has for once in his life done the correct thing.

[Rogers mentioned as possible can-' I didate for auditor. Now we hap pen to know something about the "old cuss," and you may rest as sured that we will never vote for him. "Sage Brush Bill says, "old Rogers has not got sense enough to run a hay rake." Now we are very ignorant, but really we did not know that was a necessary qualifi cation for the auditor's office. W. 8. Rogers i.- not a very ambitious specimen of the ''genus homo" and does not seek any office but is in the hands of his friends, (if he has any and would endeavor to do his duty, in office or out of it. Yes, we attended the school pie nic at the Thomas school house and enjoyed it immensely. It was a nice thing and the children's ex ercises were very creditable both to teachers and pupils. The teachers had evidently done their duty and the progress made by the children in their various studies was com mendable. Quite a number of peo ple were present on that occasion, and there was "Skoookum muck-a muck," and every body got enough. You bet "Old Green Horn" got a sijuare meal, and think we can now do very well until the Fourth. Among other good things we got a lemonade with a fire cracker in it. A very popular song starts off some thing like this: "A starry night for a ramble." Just ask Misses Maude Ives, Dollie Geddis and Mattie Hoskin- about the ramble they had the other evening behind a kicking broncho. It seems that they saw quite a lot of stars. Jim Woodyard has done some-! thing the evil one has rover done— \ left this section aud gone to Walla ; Walla. ('. B. Fetters and his son Ernest have gone to the Palouse country.

If there is any little old oflice that nobody else want-, just pass it this way please. Mosl any old thing will do us. We will make nearly any kind of a promise that you wish, and will be Bure to be on hand to collect our salary every time. Can you not discarn the hand of Wall street in the evident intention to prolong the war with Spain as, lung a- possible.

Let our over-prudent states- Imen howl about our becoming in* I volved in a war with Europe. It would be horse sense to act now, as we are sure to have trouble with Mime of the European nations any way sooner or later, ami we should improve the opportunity now by grasping this rich territory now while we have a chance. It would lie cowardly to throw away such golden opportunities. They are ours by the right of conquest. Elder A. .1. Hodges preached an excellent sermon at the Filer school house last Sunday.

The Dewey bane bah fleet came up with the enemy on Sunday afternoon at 2 p. m. which consisted ofniu t armoured heavyweights of the common class. The torpedo catchers of th.' enemy were left behind, as it was thought they would not be needed. After manouvering for a short time in order to site up their op»i ponents, which consisted of nine small cruisers of the first class, they opened tiie at once, toe flag Bhip leading with Captain Cunningham commanding, but their shots went wild and their gunners Were badly rattled, and after the smoke ol the tirst round had cleared away they were repulsed with a goose egg, No damage was done to the Deweys, who with Captain Pete Schuller commanding, began firing, nn<l although they were outclassed in weight and at monr the small fleet batted torpedoes all ov«r the field and now and them a shell would hurst right in their midst scatter ing them light and left.
