PERSONAL. Mr. George Johnson, the well-known Franklin miner, spent last Saturday in the city looking after some property interests here. Dr. Samuel Burdett is very decided ly opposed to colored folk drawing the color line by organizing political clubs for colored folk only, and he is about "three thirds" correct. Air. Scott of Franklin spent last Tuesday and Wednesday in the city for the purpose of attending the reg ular meeting of the A. F. and A. M. lodge. Rev. Samuel A. Franklin of Newcas tle, attended the Baptist services in Seattle last Sunday. The Unique Social Club held its reg ular monthly business meeting last Wednesday evening.

THE SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. X. NO. 36 TWO CANDIDATES FOR COUNCILfIANATLARGE ft & JB T| ■ 3 j^JI The Seattle Republican has been authorized to announce the candidacy of David W. Bowen of the Third ward for councilman at-large, subject to the approval and ratification of the next nami nating Republican municipal convention. In doing so advatage is taken of the opportunity to say a word commendable to Mr. Bowen's candidacy. He has been active in the political affairs of this city county and state for a number of year, but never before aspired to an elective office. For three years, however, he filled the position as deputy collector of internal revenue in this city, and resigned from the position to go into business for himself, at which he has been a most brilliant success. While Mr. Bowen has from time to time been identified with the politics of the county, and aggressively so, yet he has always been pronounced by all factions and parties as being fair in his dealing as well as ...

POLITICAL POT=PIE Dr. J. J. Smith's formal announcement as a candidate for the gubernatorial nomina tion, subject to the actions of the next nom inating Republican convention, which for mal announcement appeared in the "P.-I." one day last week, clears up a much-befud dled political atmosphere that has been hanging over King county for the last six months or more. Neither the advocates nor the opponents of Dr. Smith knew for sure whether lie would be a candidate for governor or not as he kept his own counsel in the matter, and it was being hinted that he had withdrawn from the race under promise of being unanimously nominated for lieutenant-governor, but he has set all doubting Thomas' on the right road, as he announces that he is in the fight for the gubernatorial nomination to win. The Dr. Smith announcement is the be ginning of a fierce three-cornered scrap in King county, the outcome of which the shrewdest and most sagacious politicians are unable to even surmise or predict. Dr....

GOVERNOR YARDMAN. A few weeks ago a new Governor was inaugurated in the State of Mississippi, and he took occasion to make some very unkind remarks about the colored population of this country, and attempted to verify his state ments by the late census reports. One thing above all others that he said, which has been taken up by the press all over the country is found in the following extract: "As a race the Negro is deteriorating mor ally every day. Time has demonstrated that he is more criminal as a free man than as a slave, that he is increasing in criminality with a frightful rapidity, being one-third more criminal in 1890 than he was in 1880. "I am advised that the minimum illiter acy among the Negroes is found in New England, where it is 21.7 per cent. The maximum was found in the black belt — Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina —where it is 67.5 per cent, and yet the Negro in New England is 4^ times more criminal 100 for 100, than he is in the black belt." Before any fig...

Codwin's "do not want any office," is doubtless prompted more from "because I cannot get any office" than his actual oppo sition to holding an office. Johnny Bull and Uncle Sam both favor Japan in her war with Russia and for that reason, the Czar had better be careful where and whom he shoots. Seattle has five weekly newspapers of more or less political influence, all of whom try to do the same fellow the same week for the same amount. "A long, bloody struggle will be the re sult of the Russian-Japanese war," predicts a well-known Chinaman of Portland, Ore gon. More good news for the merchants of the Northwest! "Want to advertise the county," comes from the Snohomish county folk. What more advert...

POLITICAL POT-PIE (Continued from Page 2) the powerful influence that is backing Judge Ballingcr. And, then again, Judge Ballin ger is a clean, popular gentleman, who, if nominated and elected, would give the city an ideal administration, that is, if let alone in his official duties. If John Riplinger's name should be mentioned in connection with the mayoralty nomination on the floor of the convention there certainly would be something doing in a jiffy. It is perhaps the first time in the political history of Seattle that the saloon element is making a determined fight for a part of the official spoils of the city. Their rights, according to their views of the matter, have been wilfully and maliciously trampled upon within the past year, and they pro pose to name straight out saloon men for certain wards, even on the Republican ticket, that their rights be not too badly lost .sight of by the city council for the next two years. With that end in view they are making strenuous efforts...

The following aphorisms from the Chicago Conservator are timely and to the point: Don't be a dummy. Be a man or a mouse. Don't doubt; what ought to happen will happen. The best way to have a true friend is to be one yourself. Don't fret. Do what you can and' let the rest go with a smile. Education is not only to make peo ple do right, but enjoy doing right. Believe that life is worth living and your faith will create the fact a« to you. Don't forget that wherever you can live there you can live well if you will. If the world is no better by reason of your being in it, your birth was a mistake. It is every person's duty to be healthy and strong where it is possible to be so. If you have certain great advantages you are thereby udner certain great obligations. On the principle that it is easier to be witty now and then than every day, it is easier to be a lover than a hus band.

J^ w]■"^r] ["^ "^^ "^^ 1 y "^ f^^w gA r^. f VOL. X. NO. 37 Judge Ballinger is a candidate of the Re publicans of this city for the nomination of mayor. He is the soul of honesty and in tegrity, and is being supported by ali fac tions of the Republican party in a manner such as no other Republican has ever been before in this city for a similar nomination. He has neither put forth a platform nor a declaration of principles on which he ex pects to ride into office on account of their catchy and high-sounding platitudes, but he simply says if nominated and elected he will be the mayor of Seattle, and will not be a political instrument on which some state or national candidate can ride into office. What he will do as to maintaining a "wide open town," or otherwise, is not for him to say. He prmises to do no more nor less than SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1904 R. A.

POLITICAL POT=PIE The Pie-maker has learned indirectly that a majority of ihe members of ihe state central committee seems to favor one con vention, and that the idea will prevail when the committee assembles February 2"]. Two weeks ago George Stevenson while in Seat tle, made his boast that the central commit" tee would vote favorable on the one conven tion idea, and that the Republicans had as well make the best of the situation. That's a funny remark to come from a Democrat for the Republican party. It perhaps is the first time in the history of the Republican party of this or any other state in this union of states, that a Democrat has absolutely dictated the policy of the Republican party, and the Pic-maker is of the opinion that the Republicans of this state will not submit to any such dictation on the part of a Democrat very much longer, whether such Democrat represents the railroads of the stale or the farmers. Every prominent railroad man in the state of Washington, Ben Cro...

HAD THEIR FORTUNES TOLD. By Mrs. Cay ton. There was nothing in common in either their dress or manner as they climbed up on the car steps and seated themselves side by side. They were apparently of an age, yet so different that one almost wondered what ties bound their friendship. One was neat and plain in dress, so much so from the jaunty little cap on her smoothly braided hair to the heavy soled boots which incased her feet, that the word "coramonsense" crept to mind as she appeared; while the other was what might be called a "dressed girl"; her attire was ilvffy and flowing, the latest fad of feminine finery was in evidence, while the general effect of her whole makeup was sweetly catchy. "Say, girlie, I'm just dying to read it— aren't yen?" asked the catchy girl, as she un fclded a sheet of typewritten paper. "Yes", answered the plain girl smiling pleasantly. Then the catchy girl read: "You have a great future before you." "Oh girlie," she vehemently exclaimed, and then glanced ...

The Seattle Republican Established May, 1894. H. R. Cayton Editor Susie Revels Cayton Associate SUBSCRIPTION RATES. One Year $2.00 Six Months 1.00 Three Months 60 Entered at the Postofflce at Seattle as Second- class Mail Matter. Office, A. W. Denny Bldg., 1414 Second. Tele phone Main 305. "Sawciety" having Lent her smiles for "forty clays and forty nights," good citizen ship will have an opportunity to shine dur ing the interim. The rot published by the "Times" of this city styled "War News," is unquestionably the worst bunch of doctored exaggerations that was ever before put in print. Rev. Simonds' edict that, "partisanism must be banished from the municipal poli tics," leads one to believe that the "passon" is more a josher than a preacher. Among the visitors to the city last week was Scott Swetland, of Vancouver, who it will be remembered, was at the head of the Republican campaign in this state in 1896 and disbursed $50,000 to the "boys.' After all war with all its horrors is n...

IRVING T. COLE. "I am a candidate for the Republican nom ination of councilman from the Fourth ward because I have been solicited to be by, I think, a mojority of the heaviest tax-payers in the ward, as well as by a very large num ber of voters. That being a fact, 1 claim I represent the vox populi of the ward while my chief opponent only represents the Seattle Electric Company's personal inter est." It's an indisputable fact that the;, officers and strikers of the Seattle Electric Company are working as they have never before worked for the re-nomination of James A. James and they are doing so because in the past he has looked after their company's in terest in the council to the detriment of the actual aax-payers. Though the voters of Seattle voted that the city construct a lighting plant at a cost of $600,000 in order that electric lights could be furnished to the tax-payers for at least half what they are now costing, yet Mr. James, if re-elected, will not permit the city plant ...

STATE PRESS The Press Differs. Yes, we quite agree with the "Goldendale Sentinel" that, it is the general opinion of the press of the state that one Republican convention in both county and state is suffi cient, it, however, are those papers that want to work the 'buck and gag" doge in the Re publican convention that consent to such. The rank and file are perfectly willing to go to the expense of attending two conven tions both in the county and state, and tffere would be a scramble for places on the delegation if there were three instead of one convention. Seems Against Piles. Judging from the following clipping from the "Fremont Colleague," Mr. Piles is by no means its choice for United States sena tor. It says: "If Mr. Piles should be elect ed senator, would not it jar you to see him hold down the seat once occupied by Allen, Turner, or even Foster! Think what a burlesque that would be if he should ever be called upon to preside over that ponder ous body he would no doubt forget ...

If Russia is allowed to absorb China and Russianize it, and then be able to have an army of 25,000,000 of 50,000,000 of soldiers, would there be any chance for a republican or any other kind of government in the world after that ? Should not the other na tions of the world combine to prevent Rus sia making the first step in that clirectin in annexing Manchuria? Alexander conquered the whole known world at one time, but his empire split apart at his death. Rome once did the same thing, but Rome herself fell. The strength of any nation does not lie in its conquests but in the homogeneity of the people. The Russians are homogeneous, but the one-third of the human race in China could never be made Russian in spirit, in thought. If Russia should overrun all Europe, and conquer it, it would not be Russianized; it could not be. The danger to Russia's despotic system lies in the educaiion of her people. So long as her peasants are ignorant as now, they will be obendent. Let them get educate...
