Can any of our Populist fellow citi
zens "point with pride" to the record
of the first (and let us hope it may be
the last) Populist legislature? Can
they point to a single important pledge
that was redeemed ? Can they name
& single measure that became a law
which had for its object the checking
of the exactions of corporations ? Can
they explain why a bill "to prevent
coeriou and blacklisting of employes"
was laid upon the table? And that
not a single bill to fix the liability of
<x>rp3iutions for negligence, wi*ongs or
injuries to employes was permitted to
become a law? Can they justify the
failure to create a railroad commission
and to compel a reduction of local
passenger fares to three cents a mile
a.3 demanded by the Populist platform
of' 96? Can they "point with pride"
to the election to the United States sen
ate of a renegade Republican who is a
corporation lawyer and mine owner
<and who was obliged to admit upon
the witness stand in the course of a
bribery iuvestigation that his election
.cost him thousands of dollars? We
Jtrust that our Populist fellow citizens
will excuse us if these questions are
wearying to them. The facts which
make the inquiries justifiable at this
£ime were very wearying to the few
members of the legislature who honest
ly endeavored to redeem some of the
party's numerous ante-election pledges.
One member of the lower bouse, himself
a fusionst, Mr. Witt, of Lincoln coun
ty, denounced the senate, with ka
Populist majority, as "corrupt and
rotten to the core and owned bag and
baggage by the railroad." Another
member of the house, Cleveland Smith,
Populist, of Whitman county, included
both house and senate in a most scath
ing denunciation of which the follow
ing is but a single paragraph:
"I am ashamed of the reform party in this
legislature. It is a shame and a disgrace upon
the civilization of the people in the last days of
the nineteenth century, that a party sent here
should be so cowardly and base as to betray the
trust placed in it by the people."
Puring the campaign now drawing
to a close The Islander has not given
expression to of its owu accord, or ad
mitted to its columns from other
sources, a single unkind word as to
the character or qualifications of any
populist, or fusion, candidate for public
pfflee in this county. Should any of
them te elected—a contingency, by the
way, which is pretty generally re
garded as quite improbable—they will
doubtless do their beat to serye the
people faithfully and honestly, accord
ing to their views and in conformity
with the declared principles and ad
mitted purposes of the Populist party.
To these principles and purposes, how
ever, Thk Islandeb is most earnestly
opposed, because it firmly believes
them to be inimical to the best iuter
pata of the people and subversive of the
individual's most cherished rights and
.opportunities. It is because the fusion j
candidates stand before the people as j
the exponents of ideas thas we cannot
but regard as unsound and unsafe, that
we are opposed to their election, and
for that reason and that only that we
most earnestly urge every voter who is
not in sympathy with their views to
vote against them. No purely personal
consideration should be permitted to
enter into the matter. Nothing can
justify any citizen who believes in the
principles of the Bepublican party in
voting against any candidate upon his
party's ticket, assuming, as a matter of
course, that the nominees are each aud
all considered honest and sufficiently
well qualified for the respective posi
tions to be filled. As there can be no
question upon these points so far as the
Republican candidates in this county
are concerned there ought not to be any
doubt as to the election ot each and all
of them. On the part of every honest
believer in tUe principles of any party
there is a strong moral obligation to
support his party's nominees for public
office, whether it be for congressman
or coroner, sheriff or constable, judge
or justice. Every voter who falls to
observe this obligation fails to do his
full duty to his party.
The Fusion ists are makng desperate
efforts to persuade the voters of the
state that the proposed amendment to
the constitution submitted by the Pop
ulist legislature is not a step in the di
rection of the the single tax, notwitu
standing the unequivocal expressions
to the contrary made by the chairman
of the Fusion state committee and
other pronounced advocates of the
Henry George theory of taxation.
For example, the secretary of the
Spokane Single Tax League, who is
also a member of the single tax propa
ganda committee of the state, says
frankly:
"It the amendment is adopted it gives the
voters of any county the right to exempt any
class or classes of property from taxation, such
as personal property, live stock, crops or build
ings and gives any county where a majority of
the voters see fit the rignt to adopt the single
tax, under which system all taxes would be
be raised from franchises and land values."
That is the situation in a nutshell.
It leaves no room for misconception as
to the meaning or scope of the propo
sition, and that the Populists as a party
in this state are thoroughly committed
and are not content even with the
limitations of the proposed amendment
is shown by the following declaration
in the platform of the Ellensburg joint
convention:
"We demand the submission to the people of
Washington state of a constitutional amend-
ment that will permit exemptions from taxa
tioa of personal property and improvements in
and upon land."
It is clearly the duty therefore of
every citizen who is opposed to this
admitted policy of confiscation not
only to vote against the proposed
amendment but also to do his utmost
to defeat all fusion legislative candi
datee. Upon the overwhelming de
feat of this revolutionary proposal de
pends the stability of all land values
in the state of Washington. Don't
fail to vote against it.
Beak in mind :^that the Populist
state platform again makes the fish
trap question a political issue and
pledges all of that party's legislative
nominees who are elected to favor the
enactment of a law to either abolish
traps entirely, or to so reduce the size
of the traps and the size of the mesh
used in the webs as to make trap fish,
ing generally unprofitable. If that
were done, fishing men say that the
operation of even a single cannery in
this county would be out of the ques
tion; and it is a well-known fact that
there isn't a single enterprise in the
county that distributes so much money
among the people within a given
period, or pays so good wages, as the
Island Packing Company, of this place.
"Socalists, Populists and charity
mongers—the people who would apply
little remedies for a great evil—are all
'barking up the wrong tree,' " wrote
Henry George in 1894 in giving his
views upon the causes of business de
pression. The Populists even in this
slate had not then adopted Mr. George's
ideas of land taxation. Evidently the
great economist had little patience with
the theories which they then advanced
or he would not have classed them with
"Socialists" and "charity mongers."

ticket is worthy of every Republican's
support. Vote it straight
Advice to
Consumptives
There are three great reme
dies that every person with
weak lungs, or with consump
tion itself, should understand.
These remedies will cure
about every case in its first
stages; and many of those
more advanced. It is only
the most advanced that are
hopeless. Even these are
wonderfully relieved and life
itself greatly prolonged.
What are these remedies ?
Fresh air, proper food and
seoirs Emulsion
of Cod-Liver Oil with Hypo
phosphites. Be afraid of
draughts but not of fresh air.
Eat nutritious food and drink
plenty of milk. Do not forget
that Scott's Emulsion is the
oldest, the most thoroughly
tested and the highest en
dorsed of all remedies for
weak throats, weak lungs and
consumption in all its stages.
