WAR IS BEING !
WAGED ON BUNCOES Chief Redely Says Every Exertion is Made to Drive Them From the City. "The Dumber of arrests being made the l ist few days* by the de tectives and police," says Chief of Police Reddy, "fully substantiate the statement that war Is being waged on all bunco men. swindlers nnd embezzlers who Stop off at Spo kane intending to work the incom ing public. "It is known to the police depart ment that such men are in the city, but to arrest and convict them and fasten a crime upon them becamcs another matter. "It wis stated by t business man last night that with an efficient po lice and detective force the city should be kept free from ai! men of the criminal class and that the force was inadequate in his estima tion unless it could prevent crime. "To a certain extent tb" business i FRANK PROFANITY. In one of the courty conventions in a certain county in lowa a dele- i gate stood up to put in nomination a candidate for prosecuting attor- j ney. In substance his first sentence was as follows: "Mr. Chairman: 1 desire to put in nomination before the conven tion a competent lawyer, a Chris tian gentleman, a man, who, if he is elected, will enforce the laws in this good county without fear or favor." It was at this juncture that a del egate in the back part of the room spoke up loudly, saying: "Oh, hell, we don't want that kind of a man!" And the convention didn't nomi nate that kind of a man. What the speaker said was true. His man was able, honest and fear less. But he was diaciessed be cause he was decent. Here is a weak place in popular government: The vicious forces do not desire honest and fearless, prosecution and they find enough good peonjie to make their majority. The interpolation of the delegate on the back seat of the convention hall was typical of the off-hand manner used by the petty bosses and rounders who frequently con trol conventions. "O, hell, we don't want that kind of a man. We want a good fellow —one of theb oys." One of the boys is nominated and the party whip brings in the votes. Isn't it true? Perhaps no delegate may be so frank as the one herein mentioned, but you may be sure tiiat if you want some honest and brave official nominated by your party, some where there will be some fellow saying: "O, hell, we don't want that, kind of a man." —Exchange. TO RUN AGAIN. War on the Gambling Dens Is De clared Off. Parties interested in the Stock holm, the Owl, the Club and other gaming parlors state that the games will be running as usual to night. Some of them even express ed their intention of opening up the tables this afternoon. "I do not think that Pearson had anything to do with the closeup of last night," said Proprietor Brown of the Owl. "There may have been s-rpite work in the matter, but that I can not say," he continued. "I do, not know Burnham and never had any conversation with him as reported." It was stated that Burnham made open threats in the presence of Mr. Brown that he would close up the , gambling houses. BUILDING NOTES. Charles L.

Iliekerd, manager of tbe Humbard Lumber company at Sund point, Idaho, la rooming at the, Cadillac ' 1 man may be correct, but the police department in Spokane, no matter how efficient, can noi possibly pro hibit all crime. The vigilance of the oflicers will be the means of suppressing crimes, but in spite &f their shrewd nor s a few high-col lared gents, wearing good clothes, v.cii addressed, will land in town and before the police or detectives can locate them it is possible for the bunco man to hypnotize a vic tim and relieve him of his cash and valuables by games or otherwise. "The complaint of the unfortu nate comes to police notice and then begins the active search for the culprit. In ordinary cases the officers wi'.l not be long in appre hending tlie guilty party and bring ing them to justice, as has been fully exemplified during the past week." JUDGE HINKLE.

SERVANT GIRLS' COMPLAINT. Now Wisconsin supplies its quota of evidence that reformation of Bervant girls must begin upon the mistress. I The Wisconsin state labor bureau has been collecting reasons why 'girls prefer work in factories and stores to household service. In quiries were sent to nearly 1000 yersons. Here are some of the an swers: The reason I won't do housework is because I will not be treated like half a slave and always a nobody. If ladies would only give girls better rooms, kinder treatment and warmer beds and let them live in dependently, more girls would do housework. Non<> of the girls I know would do housework, because a girl who dees it is always looked upon as a kitchen drudge, always on duty, nnd seldom treated Justly. I am treated bitter in the fac tory in every way. and, besides, I am no longer obliged to entertain in the kitchen or receive my friends at the back door, since 1 can live at home with my own people. These answers would probably be as good for any other state as they are for Wisconsin. Human na ture is pretty much the same the world over. And these answers suggest that upon the thoughtless,' untactful mistress of the house rests the larger share of the burden of re sponsibility for tho 'servant girl problem." Indeed, it appears to be less "ser vant girl problem" than a mistress problem. There is no skrn of an insistence on the part of servants that they ho treated as members of the fam ily or that they in any way be per mitted to intrude upon circles other than their own; but they do sound a clear protest against social dis tinctions being thrust upon them With bold brutality. And who but the mistress will not say their protest is .just?— Mi lwaukee Sentinel. SEWING PARTY. A delightful sewing party was given at the residence of Mrs. E.
