The Tacoma Times is already being quoted a* an authority by many speaker* in
political meetings about town.

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

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
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.

Will, however, always endeavor to give him all of the.FACTS about public officials, so

There is n business principle involved, which all clear-headed business men will see.
„ Public confidence is the moat valuable asset of any newspaper.
„ 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. '■'•'"',

known as a "clean town." './,jV,;,

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."

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.

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

WICHITA, Kan., March 31.—The So
cialist* of Kansas assembled in convention
today, with dele-gale- present from many
parts of the state. The convention will
nominate a full state ticket and perfect
plans, for waging an active campaign.
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.. "It's -imply like extending
one's circle of interesting acquaintances to
meet the nice men ami beautiful women
in Rose Ooghlan'* play. They are all
wholesome and well bred. The play is
pure and Rose Coghlan herself i- radiant
and beautifully gowned."
The crowds that, attend the Edison the

tractions are satisfactory. Special inter-

Men say that woman is conceited. 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

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
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.
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
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?
What is freedom if it is not the privilege

Praying is made easy in Japan. In the
streets are tall posts with numerous pray

To these posts are attached small wheels.
Anyone wishing to pray can, in passing,

ed as a prayer.
This reminds one of Young America,
who wrote out his prayers and tacked them

at night, he whispered hurriedly: "Lord,
