anarchy prevails throughout all
Turkey. With the Moslem troops
beaten everywhere by the Ualkan

The succession of Turkish re

He dislikes the idea of having his
sanctum turned into a nursery,
and said so yesterday afternoon.
Miss Opal strayed from the
arms of her auntie, Miss Ida

of the judge's bench, looked up
at him, both cheeks dimpling,
and said:
"1 wanna go up there."

Judge Cushman, who scowled
deeply. In his gruffest tones he
announced thai should the child
again interrupt te court, it would
be ordered from the room.
Her auntie gathered Miss Opal
into her arms and bore her from
the sanctum. Just as the door
was reached Opal shook her chub

judge and gurgled, "Bye-by."

the premises. He said there was
no objection to Xeese as a son

Will Hay, the puppet of the brutal, dirty-dollars

pretenses as a champion of "humane treatment" in
penal institutions?
Will Hay's false claims make the women voters
forget about inhuman floggings administered to un-
I fortunate girls by men attendants in the Chehalis
training school?
Will his insincere spouting NOW make the
women of this state forget that the gang put the
clamps on, that the gang whitewashed, and covered
up by a fake invesigation the disgraceful conditions
in the Chehalis reform school for wayward and un
fortunate girls?
Will the gang's slanders and
the gang's false claims divert the
women voters from the fact that a
IG-year-old girl, (ioldie McMoss,
the victim of repeated barbaric
treatment in the Chehalis school,
cried in her agony that she would
commit suicide?

her body torn and mangled, was

of this state forgot that the gang,
leaking dirty dollars, built a man

Can yon expect "humane treat

girls from a system which lives

of human lives?
In January, 1011, when the
disgraceful conditions at the Chp
haMl training school threatened
to become public, Hay, following
his usual tactics, put the clamps
on. He handpicked a committee
to whitewash, to cover up, and
to falsify If necessary.
At that time some of the girls.
In spite of threats, in Rpite of
promised floggings, dared to tell
of their treatment at the hands
of Superintendent Aspinwall of
the school. Aspinwall is an old
feeder at the public trough. Hay
picked him to administer the
gang's "humane treatment" to the
state's unfortunates, not because
he had hnd any experience or
training In that work, but because
he had a political pull.
When Hay made his fake Inves

themselves to take action in be
