THE PEOPLES PAPER
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON, THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1910.
SITUATION IN STATE
Citizens of the state of Washington have a chance to
win the applause of the nation. And it looks very much
as though the plaudits are to ring forth.
This state is now the storm center of "insurgency."
Throughout the land today independently thinking citi
zens—men in the ditches and men at the desks—are now
or soon will be watching eagerly for news of the fight be
tween the progressives and the reactionaries in this state.
Spokane and most sections of the Inland Empire are
not as yet aroused to the situation. One big cause of this
is that they endorsed insurgency two years ago when they
elected Miles Poindexter to congress, and now they have
again made up their minds, and have decided to send him
to the senate.
But Seattle, Tacoma, and the entire west aide is aflame
with politics. It's in the very air. Standpat and insurgent
banners flaunt defiance in the streets, and standpat and
insurgent oratory is heard on every side.
The situation on the west side is intensely interesting;
it is more than that—it is dramatic. The editor of The
Press spent yesterday in Seattle and Tacoma, and tomor
row he is going to tell the people of Spokane about Poin
dexter, and Burke, and Wilson, about their armies of fol
lowers, and about the struggles going on across the beauti
