":"'. Judge Shaekelford, president; Mr. Bean, manager, of the street car com
pany, are you going to again put the people of this city- in cold storage this
■winter 1 >-; -. r - .' -■; .. _ ; -_••.. -■ . • -
Or are } rou going to have some regard for their health and Comfort and
heat those street cars.
The Traction cars were equipped for heat. The old Hteilacoom oars were
also. Has anything been done to tit up the rest of the cars in this city so
patrons may ride in comfort?
Or do you intend for the sake of saving the few dollars it would cost to
warm the cars, to let the people of the city suft'er as of yore ?
Every year Taeonmns have been paying doctor bills and following loved
ones to premature graves because the street ear company wanted to squeeze
a little more money out of the people and put a little less into equipment for
up-to-date service by heating the cars.
The people have borne this disgraceful condition with a degree of patience
that is remarkable.
The street car company can no longer put on a poor mouth and say it oan
not afford to put the cars in such condition that people can use them without
courting pneumonia. It has franchises that run for over 30 years yet. It has
already paid most of the extraordinary expenses it will be called to pay for
street paving. It will have constantly increasing revenues now with return
ing prosperity.
It is time to heat those cars.
You know in the old fairy and wonder stories that we used to read when
we were kids the little boy, like Dick Whittington, who became Lord Mayor
of .London, always won out against superhuman odds. And pretty much "the
same thing obtains on the stage where the handsome hero licks seventeen vil
lains. But every once in a while a fairy talc happens in real lifp, and it's
good to read about them, because the fairy godmothers were none others than
pluck and grit and sobriety and honest toil.
Congressman "Billy" Hughes, whom the democracy nominated for sena
tor from New Jersey and whom the people are very apt to ratify, is the hero
of this story. Billy was born with no silver spoon in his month. lie was
the son of Irish immigrants. One of the first jobs he had was as reel boy in
a great Paterson factory owned by the millionaire, Colonel William Barbour.
Years passed. In the meantime Billy, the reel boy, had taught himself at
night, had learned stenography and finally law.
And his first case was one in which he fought an unfair labor injunction
issued by a man who is now a supreme court justice. Billy won. Somehow
Billy's type always wins. Directly Billy opined he would like to go to con
gress as a democrat from the Paterson district. That section had always
been republican and the bosses just laughed. They laughed still more when a
great factory owner consented to take the easy job of licking Billy.
Billy, the red boy, was pitted against Ms old boss, Barbour, the factory
king, and, while the plutocrats were chortling with glee, Billy won.
In the words of the fairy books, isn't this a pretty story? Doesn't it re
new your faith in America and the opportunity real men still have!
Next Sunday will be Anti-Tuberculosis Day in Washington.
. All ministers in the state will preach on .the subject or some phase of the
battle against the great white plague, and the state society is making special
efforts to dispense informtaion to the people that will lessen the ravages of
this disease and finally stain]) it out.
The one text of all fighters of tuberculosis is this: "Pure air."
Put more covers on the bed, but open up the windows and give your
lungs a chance to fill up at all times with pure air, is the advice of the state
society. - ,
„ The tuberculosis germ has trouble with pure air, so give him plenty of it.

William J. Burns shot out
those worda, and banged his two
fists down hard on the table.
It was "Burns tile "detective"
speaking—limns whom the world
is beginning to call "the greatest
sleuth of all time."
"There isn't a single red-blood
ed boy.in, America," I had said
to him, "who wouldn't rather be
what you- are -than president of
the United States. Now will you'
tell how they ought to go about
reaching to a place, like yours?"
• He had hesitated a minute, ty
ing his forehead in a thousand
little knots. Then his steely eyes
blazed forth, and ho shouted:
"UK HONEST—JHHt honest—
nnd Hint's about all there Is. to
Hiis whole game." !*""*
, Burns waited full two minutes
and let it sink In.
"AW boy at all who is honest,
HKAIjIA' honest by nature, can
becomes successful detective," he
added, "If he' possoso.es overage
keenness of intellect and a
trained mmd. Hut with every
other quality, if honesty lie lack
ing, he will* l.iil—fail utterly and
ignoininlously. » >•
"A man who is not honest with
others—who "is a 'crook' by na
ture—cannot be honest with hlm
self either." Burns declared.
"And unless a man IS honest with
himself, he * can't r even trail a
sand-piper along a net beach!
For he will pretend, even to him
self, that he is traveling the right

One thing about the yearly con
vention of the American Press
Humorists that makes It partic
ularly thrilling la that you never
know who is coming until they
all get there. The membership
is so widely scattered that almost
a different crowd assembles at
every session. The boys, you
know, don't travel in their own
private cars, and it is something
of an achievement for most of
them to coiao all the way with
out hocking something. It seem
ed very propitious, therefore,
when Judd Mortimer Lewis, all
the way from Houston, Texas
was one of the early arrivals
swathed in a pure white suit of
flannels with the bottoms turned
up and full-of cinders. Humor
ists followed thick and fast. A
trainload from Chicago disgorg
ed the Clan Malloch from the
press, club, and the Cleveland boat
dumped a heavy consignment of
merry men, headed by W. R. Rose
of the "Plaindealer" with his
son, W. G. Rose. The elder Rose
is the Priam of the organization,
being the most venerable in the
absence of Robert T. Burdette,
pastor emeritus, and is the only
one with gray hairs. None of
the other members will admit hav
ing gray hair, Borne of them have
not even hair. So they concede
all the dignity stuff to Mr. Rose.
One of the lads, who Came in
with very little thatch, was
Homer Croy, who has shot up like
a sunflower in the literary world.
Homer stopped off en route to
New York, where he is going to
be editor of beetle's. He had
been In Montana or North Dako
ta, it matter-not which, to gather
some health and strength. But
what doth it profit a man to go
forth Into the wilderness for $c
sake of strength if, like Samson,
he Is to come out of it shorn?
Croy. had lovely, and ' lustrous
locks—once. The story goes that

his heart of hearts that he is!
"And why?
"Ik-cause it is easier.

change," Burus went on. 'It is

Is the kind of a business that
young men are going to be proud
to be in In the future, although
in the past It has been left too
much to crooks.
"I have just taken into my
force now several young college
graduates. They are learning to
be skilled detectives. They find
the work fascinating, and besides
it appeals to them as service to
humanity. >
"When ever I look over a young
man ax a possible detective, I look
for six characteristics. They are—

"With these qualities any
young mam can be trained to be
a sleuth of the first water.
"A detective uses no uncanny
with who he was sojourning up
on the ranch and they begged
him with tear-wet cheeks to quit
teasing the prairie zephyrs.
Homer hesitated. But not his
