Governor Hay admits he spent $13,100 just to get the nomination for governor. The United States senate, which is not credited with having any too fine a sense of political right- eousness, threw Lorimer out of his seat for just that sort of thing and on the heels of it the millionaire governor of Washington who got the office in the first place by the death of the man chosen by the peo ple, now tries to hold it by pouring out his coin like water over the state. It is an outrage on political decency. It is a slap in the face of the rising public sentiment which is trying to get back to the fundamen tal principles of safety by which the people will pick the men they desire for office rather than that they shall buy themselves into political favor with cold cash or through political intrigue and conspiracy. The World Maker I am Discontent. I ana the Foe of Things as They Are. The Fighter for Things as They Ought to Be. It was my unrest with Chaos that brought about the ordered Universe. And my presence in the brain of the Anthropoid Ape was the beginning of Human Progress. Through the ages I have burned in the hearts of men, driving them ever forward to better things. I have been the Inspiration of poets, the Urge of warriors, the Impulse of statesmen and the Ardor of martyrs. Greed and Tyranny and Sloth and Privilege have ever reviled me, for they held me in fear, know ing me for their inevitable doom. Kingdoms and Empires have risen and fallen be cause of me, deserts have blossomed for me, Creeds and religions have come and gone for my sake. I am the spirit of Invention, of Achievement, of Reform. I am the flame in which the Dross of things is consumed that the Pure Metal may remain. ■ I make the Thinkers think and the Dreamers dream. I am Doubt, I am Change, I am Progress. I am Discontent. Observations 808 HODGE is getting so strong in his race for governor and Hay's contest is getting so weak that there is no longer any question as to who will get elected. You can't keep a good man down. THE World's series begins next week, and all of us will forget about presidential races and the higher cost of living. J. P. MORGAN says he is too busy to testify. But J. P. is only an ordinary man after all, and the senate kindly told J. P. to show up. J. P. will. DR. NENA CROAXE is the first woman to run for the legislature from this county, and she has a plank in her platform declaring for the pensioning of poor mothers. The first woman candidate for the legislature is making a mighty good start.

If Lorimer was unfit for United States senator because he spent $100,000 to get the seat, then M. £. Hay is not fit for governor of Washington when he spends $13,100 just to get the nomination. And there are mighty few intelligent men in the state of Washington outside of the corporation owners who want special favors who would put Lorimer back in the senate. If this state can get down to the low plane of political indecency necessary in this situation to elect Hay governor then it might as well simply announce to the world that the dollar is king and that hereafter all public office in this state will be sold at public auction to the highest bidder. To the man with millions $13,100 is nothing. It means nothing to him any more than a tin toy. He is willing to pay $13,100 or $100,000 to get a little political prestige. But what is the effect of sanctioning this sort of thing on the state and the people? HAPPY THROUGH!'. "You can't imagine how roman tic it Is where we live!

"And now I guess he's ont on the wide, blue sea wishin' he could sit here at home and hear the phonograph play it.' A pretty, black-hairod girl al lowed a soft light of fond remem brance to creep Into her dark eyes. "Bud was the nicest fel low in Huckleberry Hollow," she declared. "I'll bet he's a grand man by this time, running around over the world, seeing queens and world's fairs and battleships and Indians. I'd sure like to see Bud." "There's where my heart am turnin' ever—" crackled the little phonograph. Everyone lapsed in to silence, dreaming of the belov ed absentee. The pretty, black eyed Beattle stepped out upon the porch to drink in the warm fragrance of the moonlit, balmy night. When she re-entered with a hysterical, little shriek, the company started up. "What's the matter?" they cried In frantic chorus. "A man! A mam!" screamed $200. Total damage to this property, $352.
