Co. livery Kv«ataaT Except Sunday. AMUSEMENT ORDINANCE 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 young people. 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 trict. LISTER MONEY 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.

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. He Tjarkrd Couruge. 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.

It Is the result of a year's untiring work on the part of the Monday Civic club, one of the moat enterpris ing women's organizations in this city. A year ago the city commission asked the Civic club to take hold of the work and gave its members full management of the construc tion and designing. Tacoma's new city hospital was built by the needles of the women members of the Monday Civic club. For a year they sewed. They mudo every imaginable arti cle of clothing nud the city gov ernment paid them for their la bors. The proceeds went into the husp'tal fund. Mrs. Horace G. Scott, presiden tial elector on the progressive ticket, president of the club, was the leader in the movement, al thought she declares every other woman in the organization has not a whit less honor due than she. The building Is located at South 38th and Warner streets, and overlooks the bay, at the same time commanding a view of the Olympic range. From a point of scenic beauty no beter place could havo been selected. Its interior is finished with cement floors and walls with v painted hard wood ranter, the most sanitary con struction possible. About November 15 the hospi tal will bo the scene of an infor mal opening at which the women who built it will be hostesses. "Til' Beeleysport House has a dumb waiter. At lias" he never asks you whether you want yer eggs up or over, but brings 'em scrambled." "Pardon me, madam, but you just dropped your glove."
