Why We Should Support It From Top To
If you vote for Major McKinley and
elect him president of the United States,
the government will have a chief execu
tive whose whole puplic career has been
a continuous worthy and successful effort
in behalf of the upbuilding of American
industries. You will assist in electing
an American with an American policy,
to fill the chief executive office of the
American people. Americans, remember
to vote for the man who believes that the
American's best market, whether that
American be fanner, laborer or manu
faturer, is America. Bear in mind also,
that a nation's chief executive can do
nothing in the line of remedial legislation
unless he is backed by a congress in
political sympathy with him. Therefore
to make Major McKinley's administra
tion effective it 18 the American voter's
duty to support for congress men who
are known to be in political sympathy
with him. Such men we have in Con
gressman Doolittle and Hyde, who have
already served the people of Washington
well and faithfully and who are known
to be in accord with Major McKinley on
the great princples of protection and
Th« citizen of Washington i« especially
interested in tho selection of competent;
officials to conduct the affairs of his state
for the next four years. We can ill afford
■t this time to trust our state policy in
the hands of cranks and incompetent
officials. Potter C. Sullivan, the Repub
lican nominee for governor, is a self made
western man, and a man of brains, an
old resident of our state and one who is
fully acquainted with the conditions that
have prevailed in Washington for the
past score of years, who if elected gover
nor will bring to that high office, good
common sense and lots of it, and good
keen business and executive ability. The
rest of our state ticket is made up of com
petent and honest men, who if elected,
will ably second the efforts of Sullivan to
promote good government, law, order
and prosperity in the state.
Coming nearer home we take pleasure
in presenting the name of Hon. Henry
Me Bride, of Mt. Vernon, to the people of
San Juan county as the next superior
judge of this judicial district. Judge Mo-
Bride comes to us backed with a record
already made as a careful, painstaking
and able jurist, and a judge who will ren
der impartial justice to litigants, and
who will transact the judicial business of
the county promply and without delay.
We wish to impress the voters of San Juan
county with the fact that Judge Mcßride
is not an experiment. He is a man that
has been tried in the office he is now a
candidate for, and found by experience,
to be competent, efficient arid economical.
Reaching the county ticket, we wi*h to
impress the voter with the fact that the
next session of the legislature of Wash
ington, amone other important duties,
will perform the very important one off
electing a United States senator, to repre
sent the state in the upper branch of the
national congress for the next six years.
This being the cast*, the great importance
of having our county properly represen
ted in the next legislature, and represen
ted l>y an unswerving Republican, can
not be over estimated; all the arguments
that can be used in favor of the election
of a Republican for president, and Repub
can congressmen.can also with equal force
be brought to bear in favor of a Republican
United States senator from Washington:
and unless the Republican voters of
Washington, elect Republican represen
tatives to the state legislature, how can
they hope that a Republican United
States senator can be elected? To vote
for McKinley and then turn around and
vote for a Populist United States senator,
is like buying a new sharp ax to chop
with and then refusing to buy a handle
to fit the ax on so it can be used, what is
the use of buying the ax if you don't buy
the handle ? What is the use of voting tor
McKinley if you are not going to cast
your vote in *uch a way as to elect a United
States senator in sympathy with M Kin
ley? Judge Thacker, your candidate for
the legislature, needs no eulogy, he is a
careful, competent business man and law
yer, and above all he is a tried, true aud
The people are not unminful or nnap
preciative of careful painstaking work,
and the Republican county convention
acting in its capacity as a representative of
the people, selected as its candidato for
auditor of our county, a man whose
wifrole lif" has been devoted to a line of
business that has eminently fitted him
for the duties to be performed in the
auditor's office. Few counties in Wash
ington can produce as correct and ac
curately kept a set of county records and
books as can San Juan county, and none
a better set. Mr. Sliter's work in the
auditor's office of San Juan county for
the last two years is well known to the
voters of the county. From day to day
he has been at his post of duty, carefully
doing the work of his office, and ever
ready to oblige every one who came to
bis office for information. Mr. Sliter has
made a good, honest and well qualified
county official, and the people know it
anrt anr.reciate it, and they will show
their apppreoiation on November 3rd by
saying to Mr. Sliter, you have dorm your
work well, we want you to continue in
the same lia? of work for the next two
To fill the office of sheriff sncces3full a
man must be c-x>l, level headed, nervy
and ready to act deliberated at a mo
menta notice. Such a man is .Newton
Jones. The criminal matters arising in
San Juan county during the la*t fourteen
months have been ofa nature to try the
mettle of any man filling the office of
sheriff. Yet during all these trouble
some and excitable days before> anddur
ing the Straub murder trial, Mr. •*'>"<»
conducted the affairs of the sheriffs office
with a master hand, and by his skill,
coolness and determination averted a
second violation of the law, thus preserv
ing the people of our county from the
lasting odium incident to mob law an<l
a lynching. These are facts, well
known and do not need to be enlarged

Hair Restored to Natural Color.
I have used many preparations for restoring
hair to natural color, but never had satisfactory
results till I tried Zulu Vulier; it will restore any
hair or beard to its natural color in three weeks.
If it does not they reteurn your money, so you
take no risks. People who have never tried it
can get a sample package which contains eno lgh
to restore one's hair to a natural color, by Bead
ing at two-cent stamps, to pay postage. «U.» to

The regular price is $3.50 per per package. If
it does not restore your hair to natural color,
or make any color of hair darker in three weeks,
they will return your stamps. This proposition
is so fair that thousands are using it. It is harm
less but never fails. Why can't Dig money be

Another Gentle Reminder.
In our last issue we cautioned Repub
licans to be on tho look out for false stories
started against our Republican candi
dates, at such a late date before election,
that they could not be met and explained
or denied. All we said thon we wish to
reiterateto now. Election day is drawing
near, and as we said bofore, while we
have too high an opinion of the honor of
our people, however much they may
differ with us in political matters, to be
lieve that they would stoop to such dis
honorable means to defeat a candidate,
yet we know sucn things have been done,
we know that often at the last moment
malicious and slanderous stories have
been frequently put in circulation, and
as we have botore said, some honest
voters have been thereby misled and de
ceived, and an irreparable injury done
some candidate, th »t could not have been
done, it only the truth ha«l been relied
on and adhered to. The gentlemen who
are candidates for office on our county
ti<*ke ar« all well known over the county,
and since the 22nd dny of last August,
the date of tha Republican county; con
vention, they have been constant ly sub
ject to the most searching criticism, ofn
heated political campaign, and now on
the eve of election, stand before our peo
ple unscathed and free from smirch or
stain. We say to the people that the bat
teries of the enemy have been discharged
and their resources are exhausted. And
we charge Republicans .everywhere, that
if they hear any reports from now on un
til the evening Of election day, that are
derogatory to tho interests of our candi
date:! or any of them, to meet them
squarely, and to brand them as they
should be branded, as campaign lies.

That Populist Circular.
It has just come to my knowledge that a
circular is being distributed among you,
the object being to influence your vote
against Hon. Henry Mcßridein the com
ing election for superior judge of this ju
dicial district. This lowest of the low
methods, resorted to by low lived, can I
call them persons—n:»y villians—is cause
to ruse the rightous indignation of a lib
erty loving people. I believe the Ameri
can people are just, and when an honest
citizen has been maligned, and that by a
political party which is so void of principle
that no individual member of it would
dare put his name to the false statements
it makes, every good citizen should con
demn it. Fellow citizens, the whole
truth in regard to the redistricting of this
state for judicial purposes is this. Th«
last legislature tried to decrease our
expense account and among other items
it was found that justice could be meeteJ
out to our citizen -i by five judges less in
this state, thereby decreasing our taxation
$L~>,ooOa year, and in order to dispose of
these tiye judges, it became nwessary to
redistrict the state, and as the counties
pay one half of the judge.s salary, and in
order to make the burthens equal on all
the people, tlm assessment of the several
counties was taken as a basis upon which
the districts were formed. And as it was
found that the assessment of Whatcom
county for 1894, was $.4,216,859, that What
com county w« s able to pay her own
judge, and as Snohomish county wanted
to be attached to another jounty than
Skagtt, and as San Juan county must be
attached somewhere, and as we had our
■ choir* to g> to Jefferson and Clallam
counties, with anasseswniaut of less than
14,600,000 and a gradual decrease in their
assessment, or become attached to Skagit
with an assessed valuation of 16,000,000 of
taxable property, and as our pro rata of
i the judge's salary was less with Skagit
than it would have been with Jefferson
! and Clallam counties, I deemed that you
■ would prefer to be attached to Skagit
county, and 1 claim that no blame should
attach to any one. Herbert Conner and
myself doeiued it to be to the best interests
of Skagit and San Juan counties and all
our people, that we be united for judicial
purposes. We asked the legislature to
unite vs —and it was done-^and if any
blame is to attach to any one. in the name
of honest men put it where it should be, at
the door of H. S. Conner and John L. Mur
ray, and do not blame Judge Me Bride,
