WOMEN'S DEPARTMENT Ttte women in the labor movement of Everett are to have a corner in the l.a bor Journal all their own, to use at their own discretion lor indiscretion) as to what goes in. The editor of the Journal has spoken, and that same young editor who wields the caustic pen i- going to have nothing whatever to say about what goes Into this woman's earner, We assume all risks, all respon sibility and liability: we wield the blue pencil in this realm and we are going to indicate where we as women stand on some social ami eneconomic ques tions, Isdh material nnd ethical. Let our brothers be warned; we have never had an Opportunity like this before, and we do not intend to use our space for jelly recipes. Now. a woman's column, according t< n man's point of view, should be occu pied with discussion about cookery, the kitchen) the care of children, the latest fashions in clothes and moral Instruc tions. If such were true logic, then we would suggest that a man's corner should bi devoted to sporting news, the races baseball games, much about toboeco an< "fish" stories. We women insist on being human be ings as well as females, and in our cor ncr are going to have topics of humai interest, for we believe that society if (ailing to the mothers; that this man made world needs the women as we] as the men to supply human needs, am we an- going to raise our voices and us. our every influence in daily association through our social action in the Can and Label League and by our pens ii our Women's Corner to rouse the WO men in our ranks who are not yet af filiated with us. to the necessity of so cial action and solidarity.

If it could lie brought to the realization of other cities, it would be (■certain to prove the most potent argu ment for the new system. Another illustration is the experience of Cedar Rapids, lowa, n town of about thirty-five thousand inhabitants, which re-organized its government under the commission plan simultaneously with Dcs Moines. The former government had regular ly spent more than its income: its war rant- were commonly at a discount, com pelling excessive prices for supplies. When heavy warrants were outstanding, and there was no cash to pay them, the city would fund them into bonds; and so a bonded debt of $712,000 existed when the new government took hold. Immediately the city's business was put on a strictly cash basis. Warrants that had formerly sold at eighty-five cents jumped to par; the town began claiming the cash discount given to dealers. An inventory of city property Was made, and. when all liabilities were deducted, it was found that the city had net values of $403,000. When the new plan had been in op eration for three years a new inven tory was made. The three year showing Was that the city had — Reduced taxes each year. spent more on public improvements in three years than in the preceding ten years. Paid off $135,000 of its bonded debt. laid its bills every week, and regu larly eceived the cash discounts. Employed more men than ever be fore, and paid higher wages. A good exhibit, this, for a town which had never even known before how it stood, except that year by year itl gen eral financial condition was a little worse than before. • • * Conservative people are frequently fearful of the iniative and the recall] but in experience ti provisions have seldom IM-en invoked, and w lien they have, the percentage of successful and desirable results lias been decidely higher than in municipal elections held under the older system-.* * * That the re call is so seldom employed is explained by commission-government ad-, -j- -mi the ground that the double, non [.artisan election assures the selection ol men whom it is not necessary to ; call.

While the meeting was in -harp contrast to the one of a week before in that it was purely a business session, there was every indication to show that women have a grasp of civic nnd social duty beyond tin l four walls of the home. Ami despite the towering pile of domestic duty and household service they are go ing joyfully out TO Do THE WORK which will build up a strong auxiliary to the Everett lalnir movement. The constitution and by-laws which was presented by the committee was Voted on seriatim and finally adopted and the committee instructed to have four hundred copies printed, t It was voted to have a special meeting I for Friday afternoon at the Labor Tem ple to discu-s plana for Labor Day. nnd all members are urged to respond by being present. The waitresses' union, the laundry worker- union and. we 1 1rust, the clerks' union, will be repre sented in the parade, and it is fitting that OUT league should show its strength, Our league embodies the wo men safe and secure in the shelter of their homes, the mothers whose hearts and minds arc expanding to live and care for and support by their united strength ALL children of society, all those who are out in the world at work. We want them to know that back of them in their, struggles for better condi tions and the right lo live decently, stand our home women in their securi ty, ready to lend a hand at any and all times, using their social power to create such healthful conditions around the women in industry that the "easiest wax" will lie the best way. physically. I mentally and spiritually. One feature of the meeting we must not overlook, two recitations given in a elusion of tlio business session the doors were thrown open to union friends of the painters and some 250 men gathered around the banquet board and listened' to the aide address of President Hed 1 ricks and tbe remarks of tbe local leader-. Pres. Iledrieks complimented the labor movement of the west for its! virility and remarked that a close band view of western labor conditions was an eye-opener to the eastern resident. Be declared the Northwest Conference of Painters, a session of which he had just attended nt Portland, to be of great benefit in solidifying the craft. The McNamara ease was re-viewed and an appeal made that the attorneys for the defense should be supplied with ample financial support. All central bodies and building trades Were urged to affiliate with the A. F. Of L> The president spoke for over an hour, touching on various phases of the labor movement. The Journal has one suggestion to make to International officers visiting the great Northwest. It is possible to get transportation from Seattle to Everett at any hour of the day and it is but little over an hour's ride between the two cities. Thirty separate crafts are organized in Everett and they have a lalxir movement of no mean quality. The members thereof would like to sec their executive officers when they come as near as Seattle and extend to them the bounty of their hospitality.

We want to work us Everett women never work ed before iv the juiciest of humanity, but we are not forgetful that our work should be mixed with play if we are to lie well balanced. So we are not going to neglect the social possibilities of the League and a special treat along that line is iv -tore for next Monday night. The following pertinent little poem by Charlotte Perkins Oilman is submit ted with the suggestion that this is a day when we must be partisan or be counted a compromise.

It is needed. We need fifty new alarm boxes. We need a repeater Bystem that would report trouble in any part of the city direct to headquarters. As it is now a break in the fire alarm system in any particular locality throws the entire Bystem out of order. Automobile fire trucks arc asked for. The difference of one minute in get itine; to a fire may mean the differ ence between saving the building or be ing compelled to witness its destruc tion. A test was made the other day . when an alarm was turned iv from Fifteenth and Wetmore by Mayor Hart ley. The automobile truck on trial by the department made the run from the Wetmore -I at ion in three and tine-half minutes; the horse drawn truck took four and one-half minutes. And it must be remembered that on the run one ol the horses fell and the crew of the auto truck stopped to aid the crew of the horse-drawn truck. These increased expenditures that the fire department is asking for must in some instances be met by amendments to the charter and must have a two .thirds vote to carry.
