Let the Jury Do It
Pierce county is going to have a jury, maybe two of them, to try the
Camp Lewis condemnation suit. It is going to be a colossal case, and ex
pensive.
The Times at this juncture arises to suggest tha|t we LET THAT
JURY KAHN ITS PAY. In other words, that the awards be left for.the
jury to make. There is too much being said, in certain interested papers and
on the streets, that is designed to influence in advance the opinions of the
men and women who constitute, the panel called for that purpose.
Various owners of lands have c >me running to The Times with com
plaints against the appraisals prepared by the county's special counsel.
The figures are far too low, they argue, to recompense them for their prop
erty. Well, we're glad to see them and talk matters over, but we're willing
to let the jury try this case, just so long anyhow as it stays sane and
keeps one foot on the earth.
The figures prepared by Attorney Lyle are the estimates of valuation
prepared by one party to the suit. We presume in some cases they are low
er, perhaps far lower, than the jury will allow. That is natural to suppose.
On the other hand, if they were giving them out for public consumption,
we presume the defendants' estimates of what their places are worth would
bo, in sonic cases, far higher than wh.it those parties will eventually re
ceive. That, too, is natural.
It will be up to the jury to reconcile those two sets of figures in the
fairest, ablest way it can. The Times hopes that the rights of the families
actually living on that land, tilling it and making it their home, will receive
every consideration.
Hut while they must be allowed every dollar of value they can show
their property to possess, the land sharks and speculators who have been
holding large tracts in idleness, hoping to catch a flock of suckers or mulct
the government, must not be treated with anything more than justice.
They will try to show a lot of inflated value which it will be the jury's
duty to prick.
The thing for.the rest of us I<> do in the meantime is to sit back and see
that fair play prevails and no publicity campaign for the land grafters
gets by. *
Mayor Fawcett lias been threatening, or promising, to start a municipal
coal yard to bring fuel down to a reasonable price for this winter. We ap
plaud the idea and hope ho does not waste any lime putting it info effect.
Consequently, we take pleasure in introducing to Tacoma's mayor,
B«»h Kpeer, mayor of Denver, who is doing a little job of fuel dictation after
a fashion of his own.
The Rockefeller and kindred corporations had been having a nice time
runnin" the mining and selling of coal in Denver and had got the price up to
$6.50 a i.hi, which was sheer robbery, considering the price at the mines,
when Bob declared that he'd break that cinch. He contracted for the output
of three mines near the city and Denver consumers are getting GOO tons of
coal a day at $3.80. And particular pains is taken to see to it that it goes
to the homes < - the workers.
If the Denverite wants a couple of tons of this coal he applies, gives his
home address, where he works, how many are in
his family, AND WHAT HE EARNS A
A MONTH.
The first families that get city coal are those
whose monthly income is lowest. Then the
$100-a-month families are supplied. If the sup
ply exceeds the demand for these, then families
whose income is from $100 to $150 a month will
be supplied, and when this list is taken care of
any family can get municipal coal.
This has broken the back of the coal monopoly
in Denver. It is liable to break it all thru the
state when other cities discover how easy it is to
cut the price of coal in half.
The families who really need the coal will get
it. Those who can afford to pay the trust price
will be taken care of later.
The funny thing about this mayor whom we've
just introduced, Mr. Fawcett, is that he had been
a strong corporation man, anti-labor, anti-gov
ernment by-the-people, and all that. But when
Bob Speer became mayor, he learned what was
being done to the people. When he went In for
municipal fuel, tfie monopolists who thought that
they owned his soul set up a great howl. A cut
from $6.50 to $3.80 will make a monopolist howj
every time. And Bob answered them this way,
which will fit your case, Mr. Fawcett, when the
« monopolists howl at you:
"(Jentleinen, I have been charged with a lot of
things, but I will not help put an extra ounce on
the backs of the workers who already are carry
ing all they «-<ui stagger under. You can do what
you please; the poor families of Denver are going
to have coal at cost this -winter if it costs me my
job."
No flower blooms in vain and somewhere in Nature's
balance sheet is a great big asset built up by the beau
tiful things of the gardens of the ages that just smiled
Mid passed along.—A. D. Robinson.
Those New York financiers aren't so awfully smart
when the president of a big bank can go on stealing
for 16 years and not be found out until after he's dead.
Wouldn't it jar a Bavarian veteran to be captured

Baby Uncomfortable
'When Ita tender little organs ara
bound op with a congestion of
stomach waste in the bowels, Baby
is a mighty uncomfortable morsel
of humanity, and reflects 1U dis
comfort in its disposition. If
Mother will just rive it a tiny
dose of a mild laxative, such aa
Dr. Culdwell's Syrup Pepsin, the
congestion will quickly loosen and
be expelled, and her child be nor
mal and happy once more.
Dr. Caldw ell's Syrup Pepsin is
especially desirable for children,
because it contains co opiate or
narcotic drag, I" i "X a combination
of simple laxative herbs with pep
sin, mild and gentle in action,
positive in effect, and very palata

readily. Drunrists sell Dr. C'ald

a bottle; a trial bottle, free of

to Dr. W. B. Caldwell, «&« Wash

Dick and I, little book, were so interested and eicited over the
first news of Harry Symone's scandal we forgot for a long time to sea
what the evening papers said.
Mollle had sent us all of them. All the evening papers were
supporting Harry's campaign. Wn looked at Pat's paper first and
