Monday^^hightfdecidedinot to inaugurate an initia
tive ordinance to fix all salaries of city employes and
put them back to where they were. ;:. X, y.X

> The salary boost was a gross violation of the pub
lic confidence on the part of the commissioners and
f' was made in large part by a majority of the commis-
XX. sioners to pay campaign debts,contracted at the last
"^election. But to initiate and carry through a new
v ordinance -would mean )to tie up the council in the
v future so that it might not be able to do many things
that really should be done in adjusting salaries.
The voters f will have a chance to undo what the
; commissioners did next spring anyway, when a ma-
X jority of the commission will be up to elect. If men
'^pledged to a salary schedule consistent with the pay
received by the working people outside of the city
hall, who pay the taxes to ; make the salaries, are
1 elected, the people can get consideration.
: - V There is no question but that the salary grab of the
'.> present year has hampered the city development. It
took'thousands of dollars that might have gone for
public 'betterments. The council then tried to get
the people to vote bonds for these betterments and
|C; they discovered the temper of the voters expressed
very; emphatically. yX
•'ft. The people of Tacoma have decided for themselves
y that they want the city run as any private business,
pj and when the time comes the council majority which
* y engineered this salary grab to pay its political debts
will probably hear the vox populi.
XXXjn the meantime the citizens will keep an eye on
yi the council and wait.
Diary of Father Time
The huge block of stone preserved in Westminster
y Abbey, inside an oaken chair, is looked upon with sin
gular veneration by the English people. It is known
as the Coronation Chair and it is in this chair that
every English sovereign from Edward I to King
George V has been inaugurated. Only once has it
■■ been moved out of the Abbey. When Cromwell was
■ installed as Lord Protector in Westminster Hall, he
was placed in the chair which had been transferred
'. there for the purpose. The stone was brought from
- .'Scone, in Scotland, to Westminster by Edward I who
built for it the chair that still contains it. Scone, as
.far back as the tenth century, was the place where the
Scottish kings were inaugurated by being placed in
... the royal chair of state and this shapeless block was
a portion of the chain and was brought over by Ed
ward as a trophy of victory.
English chroniclers gravely assert that it was the
pillow upon which Jacob slept at Bethel, and which
.;:his'descendents had carried to Egypt, though how it
% got from-Egypt to Scotland does not seem very clear.

Sit is up.to the Commercial club and citizens gen

Grays Harbor to take from Tacoma Whitworth col
lege and University of Puget Sound.
The directors of Whitworth college say that it
j will j certainly go to Spokane unless Tacoma wakes
up and does something. It means the loss of hun
dreds jof thousands of dollars to this city to have any
of her higher educational institutions leave to say
nothing of the loss of culture and social prestige that
centers around an institution of this character.
i Tacoma must not lose either of these institutions.
It will be an everlasting indictment of the commer
cial organizations of the city to allow it and a dis
grace to the whole city. * "Xy,

The attraction at the Tacoma
theater next week, starting Sun
day, will be the exhibition of the
1912 Round-up, as shown for the
first time hero in 5,000 feet of
excellent films. Many of the
scenes, while very thrilling, are
also full or humor.
"The Police Inspector," a
cleverly portrayed drama, Is hold
ing attention at Pantages" theater
this week.
Full of excitement and yet true
to details the 4-reel photo-play,
"The Life and Adventures of
Lieut. Petrosino," at the Mel
bourne theater proved yesterday
to be one of the greatest draw

The story of the water grade
line to Tacoma by way of the
Columbia river and Point Defi
ance line lias been told and
retold fn preceding chapters.
The story of this, the great
est traffic feature of the Pa

the words of our local men.
During the past week we have
Riven the point of view of the
Chamber of Commerce of our
sister city to the south, that
our busy people may have evi
dence to assure them that our
folks are not mistaken when
they say "The ralways have
come to Puget Sound because
they mustthe Columbia river
cannot meet the requirements
of a world port—hence, the
Point Defiance line."
Bear In mind that the money
spent for railway extension
and development Is secured and
the spending of It passed upon
by the same men in New York
who own and pass upon the
policy of tho steel. copper,
leather, electrical equipment, in
fact all the Industrial enter
prises that are done in a large
The same aggregation of men
who have realized the traffic
situation in Tacoma for years,
have had the rail facilities ob
tained and are developing them
here, have secured, and are se
curing (where their railways
can handle their products for
the least cost), large manu
facturing enterprises. The
spending of 21,000,000 In enlarg
ing and modernizing the smel
ter here Is but one of the small
preliminary developments.
_ With the opening of the water
•fcrade line this fall, Tacoma
will be the logical manufactur
ing and shipping city of the
coast. When the way to the
Interior Is opened by the Point
Defiance line and the way to
the world Is cleared by the
Panama canal, manufacturing
will be developed here as rapid
ly as men and money can ac
complish It, by the same group
of financiers who have put the
railways here. v
