No new paper ever received a fairer or more kindly reception than The Tacoma Times has had at the hands of the people of this city. From the day of its first appear, The Times has been the recipient of warm and sympathetic support that ha* done it "a world of good." ; ■ iiJ'Kcep gong. We are with you!" ho* been tne cry of the people. The Time* will keep going. Never fear about that. It ha* found an opening such as few newspaper* ever find, and it propOSO* to make the most of Its opportunities. The Times is -rill getting "introduced," so to speak. It is bent upon ultimately know " ing all of the people of Tacoma and having an intimate acquaintanceship, too.! I.'v.-m effort ia being put forth to thoroughly cover the local news field, and each jw^day bear* witness to an Improvement, a* the stuff of reporter* become mors and more ; familiar with their routes and duties. All of them were "new men" at the outset and had many difficulties to encounter, : It takes time and effo.t to develop a newspaper, just as it doe* to develop any Other business enterprise. This paper is strictly a business proposition. It depends solely,for its maintenance upon receipt* from sales of the daily edition* and receipt* from advertising. It ha* no sustaining income from political campaign funds, from railroad-, or from corporation* in politic*. No pernicious financial Influence affects its Independence. The Times can and will print anything in the way of legitimate news, without re gard to whether it please* or displease* political or corporation powers inside or out side of Tacoma. ' -■.'..'_*,•. .';•'*-•-. The people have WANTED a paper of this character. They could get all the cor poration orana.'* * political organs they wanted in th* past, but they could not get a newspaper that was strictly and altogether a newspaper. No political organ is ever absolutely fair. IT CANNOT PRINT ALL OF THE NEWS ALL OF THE TIME without hurting its own cause, hence it necessarily be comes biased and unfair. c. The Tacoma Time* will advise no man as to what party ticket be should vote. It Will, however, always endeavor to give him all of the.FACTS about public officials, so as to enable him to reach his own subsequent conclusion*.' .■ It is a difficult thing to* conduct a really independent newspaper.

THE ONE ISSUE BEFORE THE PEOPLE The keen public interest evinced in the political meetings now being held in the various wards shows that the coming city election will be a hotly contested one. .':• The sal.iem element is today lined up solidly against Mayor Campbell. During tbe last municipal election this element was divided, part of it supporting Campbell and part the Democratic candidate. ,v„. The Campbell feeling among the saloonista is due directly to the mayor's atti tude toward* slot machines and gambling, and his hostility towards what is generally known a* an "open policy. ' ..'. -^ - • •',: "11..:,- is an active element in Tacoma which is determined if possible, to force a •'wide open" policy upon the city, with the time system of fining vice, in place of the pre«ent Campbell system of suppressing it. '■'•'"', ij The supporters of Mayor Campbell are the.-..' .who believe in what i* popularly known as a "clean town." './,jV,;, , ; Seattle ban abandoned the "open policy" after a six years' trial under Hume*, and It is stated that Bsßimmr's attitude will result in quite an exodus of sporting men and women from that city. These people are already looking for a new location. Ta.-oma is believed to offer them a good haven, if thing* can be shaped up here in the necessary way. Every voter in Tacoma should bo at the poll* next week and express his will. Shall there be an "open" or a "closed" city? The question is a very important one, and it .will be finally settled next Tuesday. ' .... " , -. Mayor Campbell stands for the "closed town." - George P. Wright stand* for the "open town." ; ;'? There is no other issue. ' '"<V*-ri)S-'fl>vJl^.i* ' Knowing these facts, the voter* will decide what they want.'? *v>- ' ' 1 "-*.' * ' -■ -"-"■'-'.' -■'--'-..--■ ' - - * , ' IS LOVE A DISEASE •Tl. T J _"*""■'-'•.•-•-■' ' ' j ', The London Lancet, the most conservative medical journal of the most conservative people on earth, has been gravely discussing the question whether the love of the sexes Is a disease. .: \ ?■ 'j'*-*•:'■■..,. ...'-, ».-j . ■__ A contributor takes a hand by marshaling all the medical authorities from Galen to Horatius, and even the painters of the seventeenth century, who delighted in per traying lovesickness a* an anemic young woman. s ; » .»^i There ha* been in time* past some irresponsible and facetious talk about love being due to a germ supposed to lie transmitted in the kiss. The first symptoms nre quick ened heart action and inflammation of the mind. But that this derangement should develop into the high fever culled love and become an actual disease has never before been admitted by sober medical authorities to be possible. '•*''.' ''■'."'."• *■'-:=':■* That kissing lead* to love even the unlearned general public ha* long anil deeply realized. But to make out a case satisfactory to high medical authority it must be shown that the kissing si ways precedes the love. This i* awkward, in view of the fact that many an unkisscd maid is in love with love, though loverlea*. It is she who furnishes the anemic examples of the seventeenth century and of all centuries. The man and maid who love and are loved and the course Ot whose love run* smooth do not pin* or complain. T_ Indeed, it may be stated as a general truth that the chief pain of love Is experienced by people who are not in love. The great burden of the complaint about it comes from bachelor* and spinster*. , y * J^The, nature of love has baffled the wise of all age* but the realization of it ha* sweetened all time. Philosophers have sought to analyze it, poets to describe it •etuis to picture it. since philosophy and poetry and art began. Rut in an ardent lovers look and a willing maiden's soul-lit eyes there is more meaning than all phil osophy, all poetry and all art of all the age* can portray or understand. ".And if the doctors dissect the riddle, what can they do about it? Though love be a disease, they who have it would not want it cured. The nasty nostrums would be left;to os d bachelor* and spinster* as preventives. . Love has been with us from the beginning and it will stay to the end for the end of love is the end of all. It is the sunshine in the wilderness that mankind threads dob Eden to heaven. ■■„,■'j; If it should disappear there would disappear with it the drama the novel the poem, and almost the entire romantic element in life. With it would disappear comprehension of the scriptures and all interpretation of the meaning of existence •.» A legal publication ha* gathered statistics respecting the number of laws passed during the year 1802 by the legislature* of the states and territories. Hon many, do you suppose? v- „■ '.•.;■- Fourteen thousand three hundred and ninety (14,391). And this doe* not include the number of law* passed by congress. Of the making of laws in this country there is no end. .Somebody, somewhere is always at is,!^pfJMHiMMKHMa| ' Did Mlaekstone realize, when he »aid there it no wrong without It* legal remedy what a floodgate he had opened?

'IHHl'*|||^^ A* a consequence the statute books of every state are padded with all sorts of enactment*. Frequently these laws cross snd cri*s-croas until their interpretation is the despair of the courts. "Ignorance of the law excuses no man." And yet no man K known precisely and fully what the aw i*. What wonder there should be lawlessness? Here is the fundamental error: Men i pose they can *prinkl* Thou Shalt Not* through a hook, bind it in sheep i.us ition.

The convention will nominate a full state ticket and perfect plans, for waging an active campaign. A STRONG PLAY. Rose Coghlan will appear at the Tacoma theater Saturday and Sunday nights in "The Greatest Thing in the World." "I don't remember when my self-respect ha* attained such toplofty heights as it ha* thi* week, after I have seen 'The Greatest Thing in the World,' " -a.- a prominent Boston critic..

May be it is true, but if so she is not sufficient ly conceited but that she depends upon her clothes to make her charming. She is not sufficiently conceited to trust to the charm of her personality to hold her friends, and to attract acquaintances. If she has "nothing to wear" she stays at home. This is too bad. Women deny them selves so many pleasure* simply because they have not faith enough in themselves to believe that they tan be interesting without being arrayed in all their glory. What difference doe* it make whether the woman is in silk or. in calico, so that the heart is true and the brow serene? It is the "you" that your friends are looking for. It is the "you" that shines out of your eyes that makes you welcome wherever you go. It is the "you" that makes an attractive companion of you, and that makes your old clothes but a harmon tons part of a very pleasing whole, "I hate hough ten clothes," sighed a little woman bitterly. "1 hate to be a chroma, and that is what I am, when 50 or more women are wearing clothes cut off the same niece and made after the same pat- ■ tern!" . . . Little woman, you can't be like any one ' of these SO women. It is impossible. "You" couldn't be other than "you" if you were wearing a Paris gown bespangled and bcjeweled. A bit of lace here, a knot of ribbon there and the cut of the store suit is forgotten; it has taken on the in dividuality of the wearer. It has become a part of "you." The "you" that your friends know and love; the 'you" that your acquaintances admire and enjoy. Oh, i little conceit, a little more confi dence in her own individuality would be such a help to the woman who hates her i clothes, who bewails her appearance, who denies herself pleasure* because she has The Str.

PRESENTED CHIEF WITH new star SEATTLE, March 31—Thomas Delan ey, Seattle's new chief of police, was pre sented with a handsome gold badge, em blematic of his office, by the employes of the Seattle customs bOUSe yesterday. The presentation, which came in the nature of a surprise to the chief, was made by Dr. A. P. Mitten, collector of the port, in the presence of C. W. Ide, collector for the district, and the Seattle office force. shelves. A narrower, smaller, soft brush should be kept for brushing flour from bis cuits, cookies, pies, etc. What to do with the brushes is another question which haunts the careful house wife. If they are left in the sink they are always water-soaked. If they hang against the wall their drippings leave ugly streaks upon the woodwork. If they are thrown promiscuously Into a drawer they are likely to make a sorry-looking drawer. For keep ing the stove brush and the other scrub bing blushes for cleaning purpose* a zinc lined drawer, six or eight inches deep, can be fitted under one end of the sink. The zinc drawer can be kept clean and whole some, as it can be washed frequently, and after a wash will be as clean as if new. For the softer brushes, those used in free ing the food from flour dust, etc., any cup board drawer can be utilized, as these brushes are never unclean and never leave black marks. It is always well, however, to line all drawers in which are kept arti cles used about the food with clean wrap ping paper, which can easily be removed frequently and replaced. FREEDOM OB BONDAGE? The Japanese women are rapidly adopt ing the European costume. A few more books, a few more missionaries, a few more women educated in western colleges and their charming picturesqueness will be lost forever. The hated spirit of commercialism has them also in its clutches. Women are to be found clerking in the store* and at rail road stations. Women have been seized with a desire to do their share toward earning bread and butter or (more properly speaking) to earn their seaweed sauce. The papers tell us that Japanese women are beginning to enjoy a freedom undream ed of only a few years back. Oh, the bit terness in store for the women who seek to enjoy this very freedom! The Japanese women love the trees, the sunshine and the flowers. What will this coveted freedom moan to them when it merely shuts them up in office* and fac tories, while their beloved cherry blos soms bloom and fade and flutter idly to the ground! What, will this women's independence amount to when the gardens and conserva tories arc filled with the gorgeous chrys anthemums among which haughty blos soms these women have been wont to revel ' and which they have almost worshipped? Who can say that this so much talked of freedom ie worth while when it closes j the doors upon the beautiful, upon the sublime, upon the ideal, which i* the de light of the Japanese?

Praying is made easy in Japan. In the streets are tall posts with numerous pray ers printed upon them, prayers to the gods. To these posts are attached small wheels. Anyone wishing to pray can, in passing, give the wheel a turn, and the act is count ed as a prayer. This reminds one of Young America, who wrote out his prayers and tacked them above the bed. Dropping upon his knees at night, he whispered hurriedly: "Lord, those are my sentiments," and popped into bed.
