An electric wire on poles In the
public road In front of my property
was broken by a root thrown when
blasting a stump on my property. The
Everett Railway, Light and Water Co.,
leasers from the Puget Sound Interna
tional Railway and Power Co., of the
electric line, sent me a bill for the re

I consider this excessive for the fol
lowing reasons: I notified them be
fore beginning of my intention to
blow stumps, so they could easily lo
cate any trouble I might cause, and a
man was sent out in the morning to
awaist any possible Injury. I pre
sume his time Is included in the bill;
also presume the time for all work
men Is Included from leaving office
until reporting back, as the actual
work of repairing was done In less
than an hour by five men. The tools
used were some pliers and some spurs
for climbing poles. The ax used was
furnished by me.
The wire taken out was carried off
by the workmen and Its value as junk

replacing It as per the bill, would be
Must I pay this bill? If so, how can
I best proceed to have it lowered?
Can a counter bill be presented with
any probability of results.
J. M. H.
A.—l don't think you have to pay
the bill. However, if it was done
"through want of proper care" on your
part, then you would be liable to the
company for the actual damages sus
tained. If you had failed to notify the
company, and had used such a heavy
charge of powder that a reasonable
man would not have used Buch a
charge, then you would liable.
Write the company telling them that
you had used proper care in the mat
ter, and that you will not pay. If they
Insist, refer them to your adviser.
EXPERT ESTIMATES COST OF
WAR WITH MEXICO AT
$2,000,000 EVERY DAY.
Asked for an opinion as to the prob
able money cost of a war with Mexico,
Congressman James Hay, chairman of
the military committee of the U. S.
house of representatives, answered
that this would, of course, depend upon
the number of men called out, and this
no one knows.
"We have a standing army, the full
strength of which is 100,000. The cost
of its maintenance, In time of peace,
is $100,000,000 a year.
"The military appropriation bill, just
passed, carries that amount. In time
of war the increased destruction of
equipment and other added expense
will swell this figure to at leant $150,
"Supposing that the president calls
for 250,000 volunteers —the cost of
maintenance of this army—pay, sub
sistence, transportation, animals —will
be at least $500,000,000 a year. This
makes a total of $650,000,000 a year
for an armed land force of 350,000
men —the least number, I suppose, that
could be considered for a war with a
country of Mexico's size and topo
"These figures are conservative. I
give them as an absolute minimum.
The cost of an army of the size named
may prove to be a great deal more
than I have estimated.
"It may very easily run up to $2,
--000,000 a day, and there is no telling
but that IT MIGHT GO TO A GREAT
DEAL HIGHER THAN THAT! And
rfiiicrnber, also, that, a considerably
larger force may be found necessary."
There will be a distribution of liter
ature next Sunday, May 17, 1914.

THE WASHINGTON SOCIALIST
BRUTALITY OF CAPITALIST
Bhown In Resolution! Adopted at
Trafton April 26, 1914.
At n iii.-i- v meeting of more tlinn a
hundred and fifty residents of School
DtltriOl No. Ml, Hnoliomlsli county,
Washington, held at. Trafton school
house on April 16, 1914, aTler fuM dls
OUlliOfl the following preamble and
rcMolutlonH wrro unanimously adopt
In tho good your L9lB, the present
president of the school bourd of dls-
Irlct No. .'lOl Introduced a resolution
Into a public, meeting of the patrons,
teachers ami directors of tills district,
declaring that, our schools must be
free from both political and religious
partisanship. It carried unanimously.
It Ih ciiHtonmry where non-partisan
Hhlp Ih the rule, to proportion appoint
meiilH very closely to the vote cast by
the several parties, giving the minor
ity a representation about propor
Honed to the vole It cast as, for ex
ample, In chhc of election boards, fed
eral and state eoitinilHHlons and the
like. Any other scheme of appointing
' manifestly partisan and marks an
almolute return to the old and dis
carded Rpolls Ryntom.
Somotlmea, In (he Interest of lion
partisanship, the majority has boon
known to reverse this rule. As an In
stance, we point with pride to the fact
that under (he administration of a So
cialist majority on the school board
the distribution of teachers was much
more generous to their opponents; for
bo it remembered, out of twenty-six
teachers employed then only five were
The present board Is actuated by
absolutely opposite views. It appar
ently believes that "non-partlsanshlp"
means the entire exclusion of one
party from participation in the school
management. Therefore, under the ef
ficient leadership of the authoress of
those magnanimous (?) "non-parti
san" resolutions the present school
board has acted upon a plain and un
disguised determination not to give
the minority party any—not even the
least — representation upon the faculty
of our schools. •
To prove this let the facts be sub
Sinclair and his wife have both
been refused re-employment. Yet
their school work, notwithstanding the
Interruptions which these "non-parti
sans" forced upon them, has been ab
solutely successful according to the
testimony of their patrons; and even
George Lancaster-has admitted it both
publicly and privately. The excuse in
the case of J. E. Sinclair Is that he
said something about a flag pledge,
which pledge was afterward abandon
ed. What he said was uttered before he
came here and while he was not teach
ing; and the state superintendent
ruled that ho had a right to say it.
Hut we Insist that this excuse is hypo
critical and that the real and true rea
son for his separation from our school
by this "non-partisan" board is noth
ing but his politics; and In proof of
this, his wife is also separated from
our schools although it does not ap
pear that she EVER said anything to
which any member of the board or any
patron or any person of any party ob
jects. If one is a Socialist, it is just
as fatal to keep quiet as it 1b to talk.
Five Socialists Victims of the Class
Struggle In the Public Schools.
Mrs. Hallberg was victimized by the
writer of the "non-partisan" resolu
tions in a personal interview, although
no objectionable word of hers has ever
been cited, or can be.
And now, disregarding a practically
unanimous petition from the patrons
of Trafton school, which certainly cer
tifies their popularity and efficiency,
both the McKees, husband and wife,
are denied re-employment. No word
of theirs Is cited as obnoxious, or can
Wo point to the fact that these
teachers are acknowledged to be the
peers of any for efficiency and success
ful school work. Moreover, Mrs.
Lizzie Jones, county superintendent of
this county, is committed in thiß par
ticular by her recommendation, par
ticularly in the case of Slncliar.
While these five Socialists were de
nied re-employment, no other Social
ists have been employed to take their
places or to represent the more than
a third of the voteß cast at the last
election for Socialist candidates.
With these facts before them, can
any candid persons doubt the sinister
and partisan character of this cru
sade? Especially involving, as it does,
Socialist teachers and none other?
Now in the face and upon the au
thority of this statement of facts, be it
Resolved, that we denounce the bit
ter and brutal partisanship of the
school board and brand it for its hy
pocrisy and sinister rule; but
Deposed Teachers All Enjoyed Confi
dence of the Community.
Resolved, that we profess wo are In
no way surprised; for "'twas ever
thus" through all the ages, and 'twill
ever be in this wise just as long as
the class struggle continues. The
masters and their minions never did —
they never will—they CANNOT fight

not good or conducive to peace and
Unsolved, that we now have no re
course, save our own clasß solidarity
and such show of that strength and
OOUngt which our union of purpose
makes. We recommend a "petition In

memherß of our clans in this district ;
for the purpose of presenting our '
grievance to tho superintendent and
also to tho board IF WK CAN BVBH

ItoHolved, that in any event we re

for which these teachers suffer and
extend to them our hearty hands as
"THIS RESOLUTION MEANS
WAR," SAID KENT.
Representative Kent of California Is *
tho one member of congress who told i
the whole truth when he voted against !
the resolution permitting intervention.
What ho said is this:
"This man Huerta, who has been I
branded uk a bandit, a traitor, and a i
murderer by our government, has been
Mkad to make an apology, an apology .
aH head of a responsible nation, and
this demand has come to us through a
subordinate In the navy. What absurd
logic Is this that we are called upon to
Indorse? The man whom we do not
recognize as the responsible head of
tho Mexican government has apolo- I
glzcd, the man who committed the of- (
IMM of arresting American sailors
has been punished, and now because,
forHooth, a little more gunpowder will
not be burned than this particular
underling in the navy said ought to
be burned, we are declaring war.
"This resolution means war, and
nothing short of it. This is not a
declaration of peace. This is not a
declaration against one man. It is to
every man who knows Mexico a decla
ration of war against the whole peo
ple of Mexico, and nothing else, for
the moment we put armed forces into
Mexico all the forces of radical an
tipathy, all of the old historic strug
gles will be revived, and we shall find
that we shall have to take the coun
try and rule it."
