We are now going to have a most surprising and ox
traordinary demonstration of the superiority of PARTY,
over nation.
Taft, his cabinet, and tho most ferocious of tho standpat
congressmen are taking; the stomp to educate the people
The? president is to make a Dumber of speeches at clubs
and banquets down east, and then invade "doubtful"
Indiana, where THE PARTY as well as the people are
removing all "doubtfulness" as to their unwillingness to
longer lick the boots of the bosses and pay for the prh i
lege. The people give the president $25,000 a year for
traveling expenses, and if he wants to got out and explain
bus weaknesess, now seems to be a happy time to spend
some of that junket money.
Postmaster General Hitchcock is to give six months of
his time to running the national committee at New York
and Chicago. Of course he ought to ho giving his labor
and thought to cutting down the $20,000,000 deficit in his
department, and of course his employers ought to fire him
if he neglects his job, but THE PARTY needs his guiding
Secretary Xagle. that horny-handed son of toil, whom
Taft picked from the 400 of St. Louis for the department
of labor, is already twittering excuses and explanations
throughout Ohio, and the others of the president's cabinet,
with two exceptions, have been assigned to other territory
whore here seems to be little doubt but the grand old
PARTY has boon prostituted to robber trust interests by]
the bunch at Washington.
As advance scout. Congressman McKinlay, who wanted
an.open franchise in Dos Moines, has already got as far
west as Chicago, and will be closely followed by a bevy of
statesmen who will explain why they "voted with Aldrich"
100 to 200 times, and implore the masses to save THE
PARTY regardless of what promises it has broken, what
sins it has originated, what uses common robbers have put
it to.
Of course all those employes, these alleged public ser
vants, should be at Washington earning the salaries paid
them by the people. Even Aldrich himself says that he
and they could run the government $300,000,000 cheaper.
But they're going to let their jobs go to the deuce while
they ram]) up and down the country, in parlor cars, educat
ing the people who have already graduated from the col
lege of 30-cerit pork and 20-eent shoddy.
Behold an administration abandoning national business
to darn tho socks, sew on the buttons and put patches on
% seat of the breeches of THE PARTY!
Congressman Miles Poindexter of this city is making headway
In several particulars. His candidacy for the United States senate
Is gaining in popularity and strength every month. And Poindexter
is becoming known throughout the west.
A report received by The Press from Tacoma indicates that in
the home city of McCormick, another candidate for the senate, Poin
dexter is making a good many friends, and the people are begin
ning to feel that they want a man in the senate who will stand for
someth.ng more than state patronage, and who witt represent the
vital interests of the people of the great battle between what is
termed "the interests" and those standing without the embattled walls
.of corporate greed.
In Seattle, the Star, an independent newspaper, has endorsed
Poindexter's candidacy, and so in both big cities on the west side
cf the state the insurgent candidate will have strong champions.
A dispatch to the t-ortland Oregonian says: "The insurgency of
Poindexter is very obnoxious to the president and the administration.
He will in the future not be consulted about the selection of post
masters in his congressional district."
Sure, its obnoxious to all standpatters, and of course their way
of punishing independent congressmen is by taking away their pa
tronage. But when the time comes the people will recognize their
real representatives, and show how THEY can punish those who are
their best interests.
Canada has imposed a $300 head tax on Hindus landing in that
country. Rather tough of his majesty's subjects.
Seattle is beginning to fear that the present census will not show
a population of 200.000. Wow!
John D. Rockefeller Jr. is trying to raise money to build a church
and some members of his Sunday school class are not looking upon
his efforts with a Christian spirit.
Governor Hay waxes extremely poetical in his proclamation call
ing attention to Mother's day, May 8. It was rather an original and
graceful thing to do.
The Hindus want to vote in Canada. In India, under the same gov
ernment, they think themselves lucky if they can keep from starva
tion, without bothering about voting.
The tuberculosis exhibit is doing a lot of good. If you haven't seen
it, go to the Armory today or tomorrow.
The flies are with us again. Also the mosquitoes.
Speaking of unions, it might not be a bad idea to urge the gossips
to organize in favor of shorter hours.

WTXSTED, Conn., April 29—Minute observations of the actions of
President Taft at the theater have been made by E. S. Ela, editor of
the Manchester Herald, who recently occupied a box at a Washington
theater near that of the president. Mr. Ela told all about it in his
paper. This is what he noticed:
1. The president doesn't mind being looked at.
2. His seat is bigger and stronger than the average theater seat.
:s. His eyes were moist after the sad close of the second act or
"The Awakening of Helena Richie."
4. He did not try to conceal the moisture. Far from it, he drew
forth a folded handkerchief, shook it open and applied it to where
it would do the most good.
5. The presidential handkerchief had a hole In it.
