"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

PETER POWER WRITES
"BACK TO THE
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
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
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
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,
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

CITY FARMS AND FARM TEACHING IN CITY

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

a blow against the food trust—the

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
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."
