Is Washington going to sell its political honors at public auction?
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
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
I am Doubt, I am Change, I am Progress.
I am Discontent.
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?

(EDITOR'S NOTE.—Any one of our readers, walking the
streets In the morning or noon or evening hours need not be
informed that this city has more pretty working women and
working girls than any city in the land. However, there are
plenty of them in every other city and for the sake of compari
son, not to say contract, the Times has collected the photo
graphs of many of the PRETTIST WORKING WOMEN IN
AMERICA. We have secured the pictures from responsible and
discriminating editors In a large number of cities—one young
lady pre-eminemtly beautiful in each city—and we ask our
readero to judge as to the comparative prettlness of these
splendid examples of typical American womanhood.)
