The Harvest Season hath come,
The Promoter cometh out j
'• : , V- V '.'■ ■"'' •'" Y|
To show the farmer how to get rich quick.
And the Peddler peddleth about,
And if all the promises made by these Promoters aud
Peddlers came true, wouldn't the country lie full of
money ?
But regarding thai money you worked for—the proceeds
of your toil for the past year. Wouldn't you rather have
it in "The Home of the Palouse Dollar," the bank that
helped you make it, with interest at 4 per cent, while you
are not using it and the safe and sure return of it for use
in your own business when needed, than to have to borrow
money to handle next year's crop and painfully wait five
hundred years for the promises of tlie Promoter to mater
ialize? Did you ever think of it in that light?

Pullman, Wash., Friday, August 4, 1911
Whether in the city or the coun
try, the young people—and to a
lesser extent the older people -
require diversion or amusement.
"All work and no play makes
Jack a dull boy." There is no
use talking about keeping our
young folks on the farm unless
life on the farm seems worth liv
ing, is in fact, made desireable
and satisfactory.
At present our young people go
to town »on Saturdays, sometimes
oftener, for their amusements.
This takes them away from their
home life, interests them in a life
that has nothing to do with their
home and, unfortunately, often
introduces them to a society
which they had better not know
and sometimes developes habits
which will hamper them through
life. Young people will have their
amusements, however; must have
their diversions and their play;
will have it in town if they don't
have it in the country.
We have told our old farmers
for years that they will get more
work out of the boy in summer,
or any time, with five and one
half days' work and one-half
days' play, than they will in six
days of work. Many a boy has
been saved to the farm in sec
tions where farm society is better
organized than is usual, by being
given a half holiday each week
to play ball not in town, but in
country clubs.
We would like to see a baseball
club and football in each township.
This will be healthy sport, bring
ing out qualities in the boy which
cannot be developed on the farm,
accustoming him to team work, to
organization, and thus preparing
the way for organization in other
dines when he gets to be a man.
Then there could be a whole
some spirit of rivalry developed
between townships, as there is be
tween towns. If these measures
were adopted, it would not be
long before the country boys
; would be able to meet ami deaf
Properly with any team that can
be gotten up in any town in the
country. For country boys have
we vitality, have energy and fire
Ah that is needed is organization
: ■fid team work.
\ These games should be witness
v ed by their sisters and their sweet
I hearts. There should be no diffi
culty in any township in securing
Citable grounds, and in making
& baseball game of Saturday ai
, eyent that would be talked abou
_ every arm home in the town
.ship. FF-FF
This is being done in some plac
es and should be done everywhere.
For bear in mind that your boys
are entitled to games and sports,
to amusement; and when you at
tempt to rob them of it you sim
ply drive them to amusements
which do not develop health or
manly character, or the spirit of
things very much worse. We con
fess we dislike very much to see
droves of hoys and girls going to
town on Saturday simply for a
musement, when better amus
ments, or at least just as good,
with more character building, can
be had in every township in the
country, provided they only
thought so and proceeded to or
ganize themselves, thus develop
ing a rural civilization.
In the winter this should' be
followed by debating societies,
spelling schools, corn judging
contests. There is no telling
what would follow if a start was
made and the boys and girls in
the country felt they did not need
to go to town Saturdays or any
other day simply for the purpose
of having a good time.— Wallaces
Farmer, DesMoines, lowa.
Formally Announcing His Candidacy
For the Republican Nomination
and Election To the Office of Gov
ernor of the State of Washing
It Is surely the worthy ambition of
any man to seek to be elected to the
Goveruship of this Commonwealth.
Therefore, being directly respon
sible to the people, he who seeks
this office must speak directly to the
1 people, that they may know the prin
ciples which actuate his life, that
'.. they may analyze the motives influ
encing such life, and thus judge of
I his character and capacity.
I I have an abiding faith in the in
! itiative, referendum and recall. The
' dominant note in our political life
! today is direction —not indirection.
Political leverage direct from and to
the people, and hence 1 regret that
i our state official life did not submit
a constitutional amendment to give
; our people the right to recall not
alone legislative, executive and ad
ministrative officers, but Judges as
well. Judges are not separate and
, apart from the people. Extend the
term of service of judges and pro
vide the recall.
In the final analysis the man on the
i land is the natural conservator of
the resources of the state.
And hence three of the greatest
things that the .state government
" may do for the man on the land are:
(a) To give him power to use the
r land.
-I (b) Assist him by wise co-opera
tion in such use.
1 (c) To stimulate and encourage
1 him to stay on the land. .
If 1 am elected governor, 1 will
' endorse and recommend 'the submiss
ion of such constitutional amend
ments, such co-operation with the
federal government and the enact
ment of such laws as will enable us:
(a) To irrigate arid lands under
state and county aid and provide 'for
payment on long time installments
by citizens.
(b) To clear ami develop logged
off lands under the same plan.
(c) To create a j Department of
Agriculture which shall enforce the
provisions of the reclamation law to
be enacted, and to consider the wise
colonization of these lands, aud the
development of the country life move
State Efficiency
State Government by political in
fluence must go. State Government
by merit must and will come.
The whole tendency in the admin
istration of private business Is to
(a) A standard of cost In oper
(b) A standard or efficiency In
(c) A standard of merit in select
ion of employees.
What Is thus done in private' life
should be done in public life.
Therefore, if elected Governor, I
shall recommend to the legislature
such an amendment to the law as
will: —
(a) Apply civil service rules to
all appointments, except heads of in
stitutions and hoards created by law
—a method so successfully applied
in municipal and federal government.
(b) Make the present Hoard of In
spection and Supervision of public
offices more useful to the' people and
to all civic, commercial, social ser
vice, and Improvements clubs, by hav
ing such parts of its reports each
year published and distributed to
such organisations, the data of which
shall show the strength or weakness
of any office or officer, city, county
or state.
(c) Economy and efficiency that
will save the people of this state
$500,000 shall be my supreme ef-l
fort, if elected.
i believe that the political equal
ity given to women Of Ihis state
should be followed by political re
sponsibility, and. therefore, if 1 am
elected Governor of this state, I shall
recognize this principle by the fol
lowing action:
(a) Women shall be recognized in
appointments to state institutions,
particularly those' involving women
problems—not limiting them to such
appointments, but simply emphasis
ing such.
(b) Equal pay for equal service
where the law now permits, and if
it does not permit, such a develop
ment of public opinion as will make
it. a reality.
(c) Such co-operation with the
organized women forces of the state
as shall demand by public opinion
and legislation a living wage for
working girls and a more practical
Industrial education for them in con
nection with our public school sys
tem to fit them for the life that now
if elected Governor, l shall endorse
and immediately recommend:
(a) Better laws for protection of
life and property against forest tires
and wiser regulation of land and wat
er belonging to the state.
(b) The establishment of a Board
of Child Culture, composed of men
and women of widest culture and ca
pacity, to co-operate with the great
social service movements of this
commonwealth, such as the Juvinlle
Courts, Associated Charities, the
different Homes for Children, the
Fraternal Societies and Religious in
stitutions whose duty and privilege

Good IlllHlls
All the people of this slate believe
that we should have good roads. We
are suffering now, not for wiser road
laws, but for wiser adaption of such
laws to all people iv all sections of
the state.
For ten years we have been a "di
vided' household on this all-tmpor
taut quo ton.
Therefore, I submit to the people
of this state certain suggestions which
whether entirely right or wrong, may
help to produce the middle ground;
may advance the movement, thus
tending to eliminate legislative strife
In road legislation.

railroad, should be constructel and

slate highway engineer, should _on

(c) The county, under competent
county engineers, should construct

(d) These two methods of con
struction, under competent plans and
specifications, should each be' submit

engineer under unity and harmony
