Mrs. "Winifred Covell, public morals officer, announces the fact that an
amusement ordinance for Tacoma is under consideration.
The last 10 years of vaudeville and moving picture shows have injected a
new problem into American life that is calling loudly for solution, she says.
A few months ago a youth who burglarized a home in Tacoma, when ask
ed how he got the idea for his clever method of committing the felony, said he
saw it done in a moving picture show.
Not infrequent do the vaudeville houses present acts which carry with
them constant suggestion to the young and impressionable mind, and those
who work with the youthful have reached the conclusion that steps must be
taken to better regulate the amusements of the young people.
The enactment and enforcement of an indiscriminate "amusement ordin
ance" however, would be very unwise.
There is little enough of wholesome pleasure and amusement in this world
and the theater is perhaps the most harmless form of amusement open to our
A good, clean play is much to be preferred to the public dance hall; the
clean, well-ventilated and illuminated motion picture house presents no men
ace to boys and girls.
Let us have an "amusement ordinance" by all means, but let it be tem
perate and sane; clean, wholesome amusement is the leaven of life.
DO YOU WANT HIM?
Aberdeen is not so slow after all in the game of politics. She has one con
gmsman —Fordney—now and wants another just like him in Albert Johnson.
Of course Fordney is elected in Michigan, but he is really an Aberdeen man
as far as being a congressman is concerned, for his timber holdings and mills
are there. Fordney wants Johnson in congress to help him out with some
of his schemes. The two would make a fine pair to labor for the timber trust
and other special interests.
But do the people of Tacoma want a congressman who will simply be the
tail to Congressman Fordney's kite 1?
Do they want a congressman who is tied up to any of the big trusts, tim
ber or otherwise?
The reception given Johnson in this section indicates they do not. Ta
coma is pretty well satisfied with Congressman Warburton and this city will
give him enough votes to elect him if he did not get any in the rest of the dis
Ernest Lister is waging a lively campaign in the closing days of the cam
paign for governor. (Jetting into the game late on account of the mix-up
over the nominee on the democratic ticket he is making up for lost time and
the way the coin is going out in his campaign he will he able to beat the finan
cial record of Hay if the campaign lasts much longer.
Lister lithographs and other literature of an expensive sort are being
sent out by wagonloads.
Who is paying for it?
Good evening! Have you decided
that "this year, b'gosh, I'll sure do that
Christmas .shopping early'"?
Commissioner A. U. Mills says he
knows there is no money to pay a street
car inspector yet he goes right ahead to
provide for one in an ordinance.
Times are certainly pretty prosperous
considering the large percentage just
now engaged in the non-productive en
terprise of running for office.
The street railway company is pay
ing over $300,000 to help pave streets
in Tacoma this year, which is something
the people get at least.
With Govnor Teats presiding over
the senate in Olympia this winter there
will be no throttling of legislation in
committees, demanded by the people.

Coward, you are afraid of your mother-in-law!
You lire the kind of man who laughs in secret at mother-in-law
jokes, but trembles at that austere lady's approach. I'ou know that
your Mini Ik i-iii-lnu is no joke.
You arc not a coward? You are not afraid of your niothcr-iu

(or saddest) mother-in-law joke sent in before tomorrow at 10 n. in.

in-law, your name will not be printed. Itut name and address must

Under doctor's orders the pi' k mother-in-law and her daugh
ter made a trip to Florida where it whs hoped the mild climate would
benefit the patient. But shortly after their arrival the mother died
rather suddenly, and the daughter telegraphed to her husband as
follows: "Mother 1b dead. Shall I cremate her or bury her?" His
reply was, "Cremate, and bury her both. Take no chances."
—H. H. G.

l"he doctor had made many visits, and at last felt called upon
to advise that his patient should go to a warmer climate. Quite
certain in his mind that a warmer climate was necessary under the
existing circumstances, he s* advised the hewi of the house, the son
in-law of the sick lady. After some silent momenta the son-in-law
came back quietly, carrying an axe in his hand, and in a sorrowful
tone he addressed the doctor, "Doc, I am sorry, but you'll have to
hit her. I can't.". —H. H. G., 309 Berulce Bldg., Tacoma.
On our way to Tacoma on Jhe boat, my mother-in-law died and
we burled her at sea, tying a sack of coal around her neck.
I always had an Idea where she'd go when dead, but didn't
think she'd have to take along her own fuel.
