SPOKANE PEOPLE WANT
A "FATHERS' DAY" NOW
Some time ago there was a day set aside throughout the land
to be known as Mother's day and to be celebated the first Sab
bath in May. This holiday was given birth to in the East,
but the West has gone them one better. Mrs. J. B. Dodd of
Spokane heads the petition approved by the Ministerial Alli
ance of this city to set aside the first Sabbath in June to be
known as Father's day.
She wishes this idea to take root and to sprout in the hearts
of the people of our country. The object of this day, she says,
is to bring other father and child, and to give to the head of
the house and the earner of the daily bread for his brood all
respect and honor due him. It is also the aim of this day to
instill the same love and reverence for the father as is the
mother's portion. The petition has been signed thus far by the
following men of Spokane:
Mark H. Wheeler, Y. M. C. A.; George H. Forbes, secretary
Y. M. C. A.: Mills E. Pettibone, secretary Ministerial Alliance. •

How the Publicity
Forces Needed Action
An illustration of the need of a fearless newspaper to protect
the interests of the people is shown in the matter of the construction
of the new Monroe street bridge, mentioned In The Press a few days
Two young engineers have been placed in the active charge of a
job that if not properly managed may cost half a million of the tax
payers' money and the lives of many workingmen. The futile efforts of
these young fellows to make headway with the bridge, and the con
tinued discharge of competent superintendents of construction be
cause they would ont permit the young engineers to dictate the man
ner in which the actual construction should be carried on, and caus
ing the death of one man and the Injury of four others, has resulted In
forcing the engineer's office and the high officials at the city hall to
take action. Because of this J. H. Farney, a skilled steel worker, has
been placed in charge of the active work on the bridge, and will fur>
nish the mechanical skill which the job has lacked since the resigns*
tion of Stewart, the last foreman, a week ago.
