FOR DIRECT PRIMARY LAW
Appeal Has Been Made to Voters
URGED TO PREPARE FOR THE FIGHT
Civic Union of Seattle Sends Out Cir
cular Letter to All Newspapers
in the State.
An appeal to the people of "Washing
ton to make a warm campaign for a di
rect primary law to be passed by the
next legislature ha s been sent out by
C. W. Horr, chairman of the direct
primary committee of the Civic Union
of the city of Seattle. His letter is
SEATTLE, "Wash., Feb. 7.—Citizens
of Washington:" All who believe in the
majority rule, and are opposed to the
domination by an oligarchy of political
bosses are exhorted to agitate and or
ganize for a campaign in favor of nom
inations by direct primaries, which will
restore the lost art of rule by the peo
The political bosses decreed that we
shall not have rule by the people, and
for that reason defeated direct primary
bills in the legislature of the state of
Washington in 1891, 1903 and 1905. At
the last session of the state legislature
a direct primary bill passed the house
and was reported on favorably by the
senate judiciary committee. Twenty
one of the 42 senators had intimatad
they were in favor of direct primaries.
"When these men, elected as servants
of the people, had ascertained that 21
senators had indicated they were in
favor of direct primaries, it was, de
creed by the bosses that the direct prU
mary bill must not be allowed to come
to a vote, so that these public servancs
would not be placed on record by roll
call. It was understood that when the
bill came up for consideration it should
be howled down by a viva voce vote.
This self evident scheme as outlined
was carried out almost unanimously, in
opposition to the efforts of Senators
Russell, Graves and Palmer who
pleaded for fair play and a square deal.
Prepare For the Fight.
We must now prepare for the fight
and see to it that only good and true
men are nominated and elected to the|
legislature, who will serve the people
to the end that the much too confiding
American citzen may not be the vic
tim of irresponsible polticians. If you
wish to exercise your full rights ..if
American citizenship, organize direct
primary leagues in every voting pre
cinct in this state. We will call a
state convention of league delegates
and enter into the campaign fully pre
pared for the coming fight with the po
The great states of Ohia and Penn
sylvania have declared in an unmistak
able manner that the political bosses
and ward heelers must go. Now is the
time for all good citizens to assert their
manhood and recover their political
rights, now usurped by political bosses
Let us be worthy "for rule of the peo
ple, by the people and for the people."
DIRECT PRIMARY COMMITTEE.
Per C. W. HOOR.

The boys' glee club from the Wash
ington State College arrived in Walla
Walla this afternoon and tonight will
give a concert and entertainment at tno
Keylor Grand theater. This is one :f
the best student organizations in the
state and everywhere they have ap

peared they have been given a rousing
reception. The members of, the club
are said to be excellent singers and
their efforts to furnish an attractive
program have been crowned with suc
cess. One of the features of tonight's
concert will be the brass quartet, which
will render several musical numbers a:.>l
in addition to the musical end of the
program the boy s also present a good
one-act comedy. The advance sale in
dicates that the theater will contain a
large audience tonight.
In "Human Hearts" the story told is
one of much interest in which the
sympathies of the audience are very j
thoroughly enlis'ed. Tom Logan, an
honest blacksmith, living in the hills
of Arkansis, is entrapped by an ad
venturess whom he marries without
discovering her character. After a
time, and while poor Tom thinks his
happiness is secure, her former lover
appears on the scene. A murder Is
committed and through the plottings of
this Infamous man and woman, the
crime is fastened on Tom. He dis
covers the truth, but through love tor
the woman, and rather than betray her
he bears the stigma, stands trial, is
convicted, and is sentenced to state'a
prison for life, where he would have
remained, had it not been for the In
tervention of faithful friends, who bring
his case to the notice of the governor
of Arkansas. In the end of course, all
ends happily and Tom is restored to his
former standing in the community. The
play is one in which pathos is com
bined with comedy.
The organization presenting "Human
Hearts," is under the management of
W. E. Nankeville, who has directed its
tour most successful}- for years. Mr.
Nankeville is said to have procided
ample scenery display for the produc- j
tion and to have engaged a splendid
company for the portrayal of the vari- |
ous characters. At the Keylor Grand
tomorrow night, February 10.
Charles B. Hanford.
One of the most terrible and tre- I
mendous characters of the drama is
that of "Othello," which Charles B.
Hanford will present at the Keylor
Grand on Monday, February 12. It is
terrible because of the rage which in
spires it and tremendous because of its
simple dignity. That few actors can
realize such immensities of human
emotion as it deals with is not sur
prising. Charles B. Hanford has been
fortunate in having the courage, tho
scholarship, the genius and the op
portunities which must combine ?n
order to produce a favorite tragic star.
Schooled in his early youth under thp
guidance of the most eminent players
that have graced the American stage he
has in mature life carved out a way for
himself with only the loftiest ideals of
his art in view. Today finds his re
ward in the fact that the announce
ment of his appearance is sufficient t •
arrest the attention of theatre-goers of
every description. Miss Marie DrofnaTi
who will play "Desdemona" is an act
ress of wonderful power and personali
ty. "Iago" will be played by that ex
cellent actor Frank Hennig. Specisl
scenery and costumes have been pro
vided for this presentation of "Othel
"Yon Yonson" Coming.
The attraction at the Keylor Gran
on February 14, will be "Yon Yonson"
which is such a departure from the
average dialect production. It is u
Swedish dialect comedy with a plot
well worth listening to. Earl K Mit -
chell interprets the role of the Swede
"just over." As the play progresses,
"Yon Yonson" shows evidence of grad
ually becoming Americanized. It is
! said that since the death of Gus Heege,
no one has assumed the character si
perfectly as Mr. Mitchell, who originat
ed the part in England. The play is
staged with new scenic equipment and
1 accessories During each act a number
of refined specialties will be introduced,
including the now famous "Lumber
men's Quartet," which has made such
a great hit throughout the country.

UPHOLDS RIGHT OF OLD FOLKS
SUPREME COURT SETTLES STA
TUS OF DEED IN CONSIDER
ATION OF SUPPORT. .
When old folks deed their property
to their son on an agreement that Sie
will care for them until they die, the
estate that passes to the son is not
such as will vest title in the son's
wife, or on her death in her children.
Such was the decision of the su
preme court in the Skagit county case
of Jefferson Ford against C. H. Kimb'e
and others at Olympia. Ford sued to (
set aside a decree in a case wherein ne,
while a minor, was a party. Levi and
Rebecca Ford, aged 80 and 75 years a t
the time, deeded their J7.000 Skagit
county farm and turned over $2,000
personal property to their son, on his
promise to care for them while they
lived. The deed by mistake gave a
wrong description of the property.
Subsequently the parents gave a
quit-claim deed of the property, de
scribing it correctly, to their daughter.
Litigation arose, to which Jefferson
Ford was a party as heir of his mother,
who was wife of the old folks' sou.
This litigation resulted in a decree set
ting aside the quit-claim to the daugh
ter, curing the original.deed to the son
and requiring the son to care for the
parents. Subsequently the old folks
separated, the father going with his
daughter, the mother with the son, and
the property wa s by court decree parti
tioned between son and daughter.
In its decision the supreme court
says Jefferson Ford, the grandson, had
no interest in the litigation or property,
because while record title was in h s
father, the father was not an owner in
fee, but simply a trustee for the old

With their clothing scattered in vari

the custom of the boys to tie each
others clothing into knots. It was only
after a continued search that the miss-1

perpetrators of the crime were is a j
deep mystery, and at the present time |
