PLAYS PLAYERS "CHAS., THE FIRST* TO SEE CHIEF If Charles the First, the wonder ful man-monkey, carries out the same program next week in Spo kane as he has in other cities, Spo kane will see a lot of him. Charles the First does not confine himself to the theater. He is not the kind of a monk that does a 15 minute act and then retires behind the bars of a oage on the stage. Not much! His appearance at the Orpheum is but a part of his life. He sleeps PANTAGES—A big laugh from start to finish is the act of the Har per-Smlth Trio at the Pantagea this week. A good, clean colored act, without the usual run of slapstick that Is a big relief from the old style coon performance.

TO EVERY MAN A SQUARE DEAL ALWAYS PETER POWER WRITES ON DEMANDS OF FARMERS' UNION "BACK TO THE FARM." When representatives of the 3,000,000 members of the Farmers' union meet in St. Louis May 2, one of the chief demands that will be made will be a call upon congress to pass the bill appropriating funds to establish a national agricultural university. The farmers declare that if man ufacturers are to be protected by tariffs and railways and steamship combines by various subsidies, the government should pass around its "paternalism" and assist in educat ing the husbandman to produce use ful commodies in a scientific, com mon sense way. The slogan, "back to the farm," is sweeping all over the country owing to the unprecedented increase in the cost of living. The farmers want not only the boys, but the girls as well, to remain on the land, but they likewise want the old time drudgery and toil substituted by the latest and most improved methods of production, not only to lighten the labors of the agrarian workers, but to cheapen the necessaries of life for consumers in the cities. The reading and thinking farm ers are no longer deceived by the false hopes that their sons can be come great business men and their daughters "new women" and lead independent lives by rushing into the cities. They have learned that their boys. In most instances, are fortunate if they can earn as much as an average mechanic, and that too many of their girls become "new women" at beggarly wages in fac tories, and not a few are forced down into the red light districts in the intensified competition for jobs and fair living conditions. "We want this great industry placed upon the plane where It be longs." said an officer of the farm ers' union. "We want to draw our boys and girls from the congested centers, where disease and crime are on the increase, to the country, where health and morality are nat ural, where true and noble man hood and womanhood are given the fullest expression." The combination of farmers, min ers and unionists seems to have captured Australia. Brief special cables to several American labor papers state that In the general elections just held the labor party scored a signal triumph over the protection conservatives and free trade liberals and will probably have a majority over both old par ties. The labor party Is credited with having won 10 seats In the house (one report places the gain at 17) and six in the senate. This would give the laborites 20 out of 36 mem bers in the senate, and 37 seats In the house In a total of 75, or one short of an actual majority over both old parties If the gain was 10 seats. If the laborites won 17 new seats their majority will, of course, be disputed. In any event the labor party will be the government in Australia (strange sound, that!) and his royal majesty's new premier will be An drew Fisher, a common miner, whose cabinet will probably em brace a farmer, carpenter, printer and a number of other mechanics. There is little fear that the labor I party can bo overthrown even by a, combination of tho old parties, and legislation along more radical lines than ever before may be looked for in Australia. The Labor party is socialistic, de claring for government ownership of monopolies, single tax, old age pensions and other popular re forms. The principal cause that led to the victory of the Labor party at this time was the attempt of the Australian mine owners and other capitalists to import and enforce the Open shop schemes practiced in America, and outlaw the unions. Great strikes were precipitated and the greatest was at the ballot box. j $100 REWARD for the conviction of the party oi parties claiming to bo agents or solicitors of the Parisian Dyeing ft Cleaning Works, 605 First avenue b, A.

Combs, in charge of the state tuber culosis exhibit now on display i|» the armory, Is rather surprised that so few persons are attendink the evening sessions here. j The meeting last night was under the direction of the Woman's club of Spokane and not more than 100 persons were present to listen tp the excellent addresses delivered by prominent women of this city. During the day 1100 children from the Catholic schools visited the Armory and 400 students of Gonzaga college attended in a body in the afternoon, accompanied by their Instructors. The mothers of Spokane are visiting the exhibit this afternoon. Following is the program for to night. Bruce M. Watson, chairman of the meeting, will speak on "School CITY FARMS AND FARM TEACHING IN CITY SCHOOLS TO SOLVE HIGH COST OF LIVING COLUMBUS, 0., April 28.—8y recommending the establishment of municipally owned farms, the teach ing of agriculture in the schools of the city and state, the establish ment of secondary agricultural col leges with experiment farms in each county and other radical changes from the established order of things, the members of the Ohio state legislative committee, ap pointed to investigate the high prices of food, have sounded a toc sin calling Ohio's sister states to action and struck at the same time a blow against the food trust—the hardest, by the way, which has yet been delivered. By teaching the primary princi ples ot farming to children In the schools and the establishing of ag ricultural colleges in each county, the legislators feel a new interest would be created in farming which would have a tendency to attract the young men of the country to the farms instead of to the city. The establishment of a labor bu reau, to be conducted by the state, for the sole purpose of furnishing labor for the farmers, is another de cided innovation and one which the farmers welcome. Every year the farmers complain they are unable to get men to help them in harvest time, and every year about the same time the cities are crowded with unemployed. Here is one significant statement contained in the recommendations of interest everywhere: "Storage is doing for food what banking has done for money. Stan dardizing of prices is thus made possible. Governments have fixed the interest on money and they should fix the profits on food." Domestic science taught both boys and girls In the public schools would, the legislators believe, make them familiar with the first Every Day A Bargain Day at Our Store 100 Iba.
