SHALL IKE HAVE II TIMBER TRUST SENATOR?
McCormick, "Bald Eagle of Wisconsin," With Weyer haeuser Barrel Behind Him, Wants Washington to Hand Him Piles' Joh. TACOMA, Wash., Jan. 10.—One big national question that the state of Washington will be called on to decide this year is whether or not we shall add another trust senator to our collection. Robert Laird McCormick, secre tary of the executive board of the great Weyerheuser Lumber Co., the greatest timber trust on earth, wants to go to the United States senate. He will go if the people of Washington fail to jam the wheels of the republican politician organi zation In this state. He has wanted to for a good many years. Back in Wisconsin, long ago, lie was casting furtive glances at the senatorship of that state. But the fiery La Toilette in stilled such heresies into the public mind against the sway of predatory wealth that McCormick turned his eyes in sheer despair toward the Pacific coast, where senatorships were being bought and sold in the open market to the highest bidder. McCormick saw the success of Clark and Ankenny. He chose Washington as being the most promising spot on the Pacific coast. So he hastened to Washington. It was an open secret that he came for the specific purpose of go ing to the Cnited States senate. To boost himself into the limelight, he had himself nominated for mayor of Tacotja. TO HIS UNBOUNDED CHAG RIN, Mccormick didn't find TACOMA SO VERY MUCH DIF FERENT FROM WISCONSIN. HIS SUBSERVIENCY TO THE NORTH ERN PACIFIC RAILROAD WAS KNOWN. TACOMA VOTERS THE PUBLIC SQUARE Dedicated to free speech on everything except mere personal quarrels and family fights. Otherwise say what ycu thl.ik In about 300 wcrds and sign your name. Editor Tile Press: As a citizen I have long waited for a chance to see on a dark night at the twin bridges on Post street. Wall street and Bridge avenue, but as the city Is so poor and could not afford light on the steel bridge. 1 hope now when they take the lights off the Monroe street bridge tiiat they will transfer, two or three of them so a person may see whether or not that deathtrap is there when trying to go over il. And It would be a good tiling for the city to have a watchman there, as there is no re gard •paid to the sign bearing the walk denetnd. I have never seen n poorer const ruction in all my life than the trap they call Post street bridge, if the two bridges or traps were on a good, broad bridge there would not be half the danger of be ing run over by the gentle trolley cars at the Intersection of the two, And as I (lose I would like to say, if they can't afford eltht r. that they spend 50 cents of the $5000 they save on taking away the timber thai was put there trt the Intersection, so a person won't break his tieck or head hying to get out of the road of the W. W. P. flying machines. Yours truly, 11. WOLF. Editor The Paess: l have noticed much in the public press of late on Ihe question of woman's suffrage. I cannot see why the demand of wom en for suffrage is not right and .just. NELSONS POSER FOR PROBLEM SOLVERS How Long Will It Take a Celluloid Dog to Catch an Asbestos Rabbit in Hades? WASHINGTON, Jan. 10. Sena tor Nelson, who will he much in Ihe public eye as head of the joint com mittee to investigate the Bailinger- PinchOt rumpus, recently received n draft of a hill from a man not a cltiaen of bla own state Minne sota. He didn't like the bill, any way, so he wrote the man: "It will take as long to get your: bill through ((ingress as It will for a celluloid dog to catch an asbestos rabbit in Ik 11." WOULD HAVE NONE OF HIM. HE WENT DOWN TO DEFEAT. That was four years ago. All these four years McCormick has spent in regaining the ground he lost in that municipal catastrophe. In this process he hasn't forgotten that an interest, measured in dol lars and cents, In education, relig ion, phllanthrophy, is good politics. By it series of local and state phil anthropies, by accepting the leader ship ol the State Horticultural so ciety, by becoming prominent In many public institutions of educa tional or charitable nature, he grad ually climbed back up the ladder of politics until he landed into the na tional commltteemanship of his par ty in the state. That was last year. This year the people will elect a new senator. Woman is as inullige.it as man; she is as much interested in good government, aud pays her share of the taxes lo maintain the state. Why should this government of yours give every foreigner that lands on our shores the right to vote and deny the right to an Amer ican woman? Surely we under stand the principles of republican government much better than they do. is it not a Tact that we are de nied the right to vole simply on account of sex? There can be no other reason. Is not such an objec tion an eclio of the days when wom an was considered chattel property? Is it not barbarism holding on to the coal tails of civilisation? Many men claim that polities is a filthy pool, too dirty for woman to mix In. Who made it so? Is it not some one's duty to clean it out? Is it not a fact that popular govern ment today is almost a failure in all our large cities If these tilings are true. and. I do not believe any one will deny it, has man made such a howling success of govern ment thai he should think his sister mother and wife cannot do as wen? Some claim women do not want to vote. Is it not a fact that in Col orado aud all the states where women vote there is as great a per centage of them that go to the polls as there are among their brothers? MARY DAMBCHORDER.

Buyers of Bankrupt Stocks Exclusively. The "interests" have decreed the retirement of Senator Samuel If. Piles, fearing the result at the polls of his record in their behalf. McCormick thinks he is just the man for Piles' job. He believes a timber senator from the greatest timber state would be mighty fit ting. He is ready to back his opin ion with a barrel of money. So he has announced that he will run. The politicians say he will not only run, but that he will pay as he runs. His barrel is the Weyer hauser barrel. With the barrel and the republic an organization behind him, it would look like a pretty sure thing for the "Bald-Headed Eagle" of Wis consin were it not for certain changes that have taken place since he took the political count four years ago. Since that municipal election the people of Washington have adopted the direct primary. Senatorial aspirants have to face the people now and the people of Washington are warming up tre mendously to the insurgents. It is not at all impossible that the people of Washington will do about the same things to McCormick this year that the people of Oregon did to Fulton last year—throw him into I the discard, and for about the same reasons. McCormick doesn't make any se cret ol his jiolitical doctrines. He admits he's a "stand-patter." He says no man who breaks away from the leaders of the party can have "influence" and "get things." He is of the old school politically. If Mark Hanna were alive today it is probable he would come ■ clear across the country to root for Mc- Cormick. There is no doubt where McCor mick will stand if he is sent to Washington. The oil trust has its Aldrich, the smelter trust its Gug genheim, other trusts of high and low degree have their representa tives. Shall there be added a tim , ber trust senator to the collection? Washington's answer to that will Ibe of national moment.

PANTAGES —Music, comedy and Acrobatic skill are prominent in tiiis week's bill at the Pantages. The William l.loyd troupe of three men and a woman do some creditable aerial somesaulting and tumbling from the hands of one performer suspended on bars to another. The act concludes with a freakish back- ward-forward twisting double som ersault. It may have taken the fellow who finally rides Make's mule for a dollar a long time to learn the net. but yet it is gootl, as old Maud's efforts to resist are productive of much laughter. The original young Huffalo and his dog Frank in feats of marksman ship, was a pleasing opening num ber. Then followed Spokane's most popular ballad singer, Billy Qilson, with "Next to Your Moth er. Who Do You Love?" Small, Bloane and Sheridan give a comedy singing act, in which the antics of Ren Small as Jlmmie Hicks, a mes senger, is the best feature.

WASHINGTON—No back seat in the halls of popular appreciation of Spokane theater goers need be taken by the Washington theater this week, with its excellent bill with which it opened yesterday afternoon, and played to crowded houses last night. With not a single bit of drama to intersperse the collection of lively, farcical at tractions, the bill is a continual laugh for the funny numbers and a liberal reign of applause for the dancing and acrobatic acts. Elsie Harvey and the Goldie Hoys win the popular favor with clever dancing, and there are several others who make those laying claim to head line honors "sit up 'n take notice."
