FRIDAY, DEC. 9, 1904. down to a barren land where it is almost im possible to make the supply equal the de mand. * # # And now the president of the rural deliv ery mail carriers association, like the head of the city carriers associations not long since, is on the rack for trying to defeat the election of members of Congress who did not favor an increase of salary for those carriers. It is pretty nearly high time the government was taking hold of those organi zations and squeezing the life out of them, as they seem thoroughly inimical to the gen eral welfare of our government. # * # The American federation of organized la bor, in the war it makes on the Japanese, is but a step in the direction of which a long journey is to be taken sooner or later. Fol lowing the close of the Japanese war there will be more of the Mikado's subjects emi grating to this country than ever before. That there is a petition in Congress to ex clude them is not surprising, and it has be hind it more reasons...

AFRO-AMERICAN. The heirs of the late George T. Downing, the well known Negro abolitionist, who re cently died at his home in Newport, R, 1., are suing the state of New York and a number of multo-millionaires for a vast tract of land that is now valued in the millions. It seems that Mr. Downing came in the possession of the deeds to these lands, which lie in the Adirondack mountains of New York, by a grant from the state on which Negroes were to be settled. Mr. Downing died not long since and his heirs, knowing of the deeds, at once took steps to recover, and the attorney representing them claims he has a clear case and has no doubts of bagging his game be fore the courts. The lands have been sub sequently bought from the state by New York millionaires and made fine summer re sorts for hunting and fishing. It is learned from an Eastern exchange that Ben Tillman, the South Carolina black guard, who unfortunately represents that state in the United States senate, has decided to oppose ...

FRIDAY, DEC. 9, 1904. ATHLETIC SPORTS. Foot ball, the king of all sports for healthy young men, has been relegated to the extreme rear since the Thanksgiving contests in var ious parts of the country. Now and then we hear of a game between classes and between athletic clubs or like institutions. Anxious mothers, whose sons were receiv ing the finalities of enduring man hood and obeyance may now breathe freely, for the foot ball sea son has closed amid proud hurrahs and happy rejoicings of the sturdy youngsters and their fellow stu dents. The contest between the Univer sity of Washington and California on Thanksgiving day has undoubt edly greatly advanced the prestige of the home university in athletic circles. The score of 6 to 6 for the first game between two institutions is a happy omen, an encouraging thought. The big fellows from the southern clime will hereafter not be satisfied with a season's playing until he has met his smaller but energetic northerner on the grid iron. The ...

There is probably no place on earth better than a newspaper office to learn how many kinds of people there are, says the Pierson (Iowa) Enterprise. Some get huffy if a statement is sent, others will not pay until they receive a statement. Some will pay without a statement, and others will not pay whether a statement is sent or not. Some thought they owed more and others thought they didn't owe so much. Some say they can't get along without the paper and others say it don't amount to much.

SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XL NO. 29 Governor Head's Plums for Republican Politicians. If it be true, as has been charged by the Daily Belzebub of this city, that Senator E. B. Palmer, chairman of the Republican state central com mittee, is to be the real dispenser of the state patronage at the hands of Governor-elect Mead, or even to the ex tent of being the governor's advisor, he has something on his hands to do, for the name of those who want office is legion. It is currently reported that Mr. Mead has already received hun dreds and, perhaps by this time, thou sands of applications for positions un der his administration, and to fill the few positions in comparison to the many applications for them is all but the task of a Hercules, to so select them without giving mortal political offense to the hundred and one disappointed ones. Senator Palmer has shown himself to be quite a diplomat in political affairs, and whether he actually makes the appoint ments or advises with the governor...

Curbstone Sketches of the Passing Throng "LOOP THE LOOP" IS RIGHT. The Seattle Electric Company lnis recent \y made a set of transfer rules that are very obnoxious to the public, which rules are pro nounced by eminent counsel to be in conflict with the duties of the company prescribed by the franchise. There has been a state ment made by the Seattle Electric Company that it is wrong, and contrary to the fran chise, to loop the loop, and has attempted to hold persons up to ridicule and brand them as taking advantage of the company. The Seattle Electric Company is entitled to such rights as it has under its franchise, and no more. The idea that the Seattle P^lectric Company has that a person has not the right to make a continuous ride over the lines of the street railway, leaving home and return ing to their home by walking a couple of blocks, is entirely wrong. Such a right the public has, and it is an advantage of loca tion to have a home situated in the city in these localities. Fo...

FRIDAY, DEC. 16, 1904 The Magazine Club was entertained by Mr. and Mrs. G. O. Allen last Tuesday eve ning. The ladies present adopted a rule for economy in matters financial. Their friends can get the benefit of the plan on request. Miss Dora Thwaits will entertain the club next Tuesday evenings at 518 Fourteenth avenue north. No matter how amusing the play or how much enjoyment you are getting out of it, it shows very bad taste to laugh out so boister ously as to attract the attention of those around you. It is said that on one evening this week several of our representative men held a meeting in order to draw up by-laws and such matters pertaining to the organization of a co-operation whose object will be the handling of real estate in this city. The de parture is a good one, and if properly pushed will doubtless be a success. The co-opera tion will be opened for membership at the proper time. Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Gayton gave a recep tion last Tuesday evening in honor of Mr. John Fo...

There is, after all, "something new under the sun." It is a Roosevelt Democrat. "Wilson is a dead one,' comes from the Piles headquarters. If so, why so great fear of one "dead as a door nail"? If Senator Platt's bill prevails the South will lose 19 members in the house. The South deserves to loose three times that many. Inasmuch as Senator Clapp is now theoret ically a Seattle resident, we see no impro priety of him voting for a King county man for senator. What say you, Senator ? Franklin coal, for many years too valuable for Seattle domestic market, can now be had for the asking. It's as good as ever, but too much California oil tells the tale.

FRIDAY, DEC. 10, 1904 POLITICAL POT-PIE It is very generally known in political cir cles that Editor Scobey of the Olympian has no love for the Hon. John L. Wilson and for that very reason his recent review of the senatorial situation to be settled by the next legislature will be read with more than a passing interest and especially since he open ly admits that Mr. Wilson seems to have planted himself in almost an overthrowable bulwark. Mr. Scobey's paper in a recent issue said as follows: State Senatorial Conditions. The senatorial situation has developed its elements of certainties and uncertainties, but as the time for the assembling of the legisla ture draws near, the alignments may be par ticularly determined. A close estimate of the strength of the several candidates will show that none of them will have nearly enough to nominate on the earlier ballots. Foster is credited with 35 votes; Piles, 28; Wilson, 25; and Sweeney, 22. Campbell, of Spokane, is expected to have about a d...

FRIDAY, DEC 16, 1904 Amusements "For Mother's Sake," which is billed to appear at the Third-ave nue Theatre, commencing with a matinee Sunday, is highly spoken of by the press throughout the country. The stage setting is said to be magnificent, the story absorb ing and pathetic, and the comedy plentiful and varied. Notwithstanding th efact that it is but a few days before Christmas, and everybody is busy, the Third avenue Theatre is well filled every night to witness an old favorite play, "Yon Yonson." The question is often asked, "Why will 'In Old Kentucky,' 'Yon Yonson,' and such like plays draw big audiences year after year, while others, more pre tentious, fail after one or two sea sons?" It is because they are true pictures of natural life and this is what makes "Yon Yonson" one of the biggest theatrical money getters that has ever toured the country. "A CHINESE HONEYMOON." Among the early bookings com ing to this city will be the famous musical comedy, "A Chinese Hon eymoon." ...

SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XI. NO. 30 POLITICAL POT-PIE King county has two candidates for the superintendency of the soldiers' home at Orting in the persons of General George W. Tibbetts of Issaquah and Captain John Tay lor of Seattle. This position pays $1,248 per year, and the job lasts four years. Besides the above salary there are quite a number of nice things in the way of perquisites that fall to the lot of the superintendent, and, on the whole, it is considered a very fat plum for the old soldier of the great Civil War, who by this time is becoming rather feeble for active work or commercial enterprises. Then there are hundreds of other old soldiers at 1 he home and the superintendent has an op portunity to live again his old army life, and if there is anything pleasing to the old soldier it is to do that very thing. # # * General Tibbetts is the very salt of the earth, so far as his fellow man is concerned, and if Governor Mead could see his Avay clear to appoint him to the po...

Curbstone Sketches of the Passing Throng TWO NEW STATES. It seems a foregone conclusion that that section of Uncle Sam's domain now compris ing the territories of Oklahoma and the In dian Territory will be consolidated and made a state of and that the Arizona and New Mexico Territories will likewise be consoli dated and made another state of. A favor able report to that end by the senate com mittee having the matter for investigation has been made, and there is hardly any doubt of its final passage. Though much of the territory out of which the two proposed new states are to be made lie contiguous to the South, yet they will partake of none of the cussedness common to that section, and. therefore, their admission meets the approval of not only Republicans, but the North in general. When those territories will have been wiped out the only states from existing territories that will in the future be created will be Alaska and Hawaii. Some day, how ever, Texas will be cut up into three ...

FRIDAY, DEC. 23, 1904. VARDEMANISM RESPONSIBLE. That the Negroes told the truth to Prof. Washington is known to every fair-minded man who has been or lived in the South. That the whites act more as savages than human beings when dealing with the Negro is an undeniable fact and the wonder is that there are any Negroes at all on the farms, and there would not be, if they had any means of escape. The white man berates the Negro as a beast and yet he passes laws mak ing it a penitentiary offense for any one to encourage Negroes to emigrate from the Southern states. How strange they would want to be caged with such beasts, who, ac cording to their reports, never lose an oppor tunity to attack their women folk or murder the men. The South has so long listened to such blustering brutes as Vardeman, Till nian and Jeff Davis that it is now facing ag ricultural ruin. The race agitation is wholly without foundation and as false as it is fool ish. Vardeman is himself a Negro miscege nationist, ...

His arrest would not be known outside of a \ery limited few in po lice circles. After he had been kept in close confinement for a number of days he would be offered five or ten dollars of his money and his liberty if he would leave town at once, if not he Avould be turned over to the officers of the law. Of course he would be glad to get a chance to escape punishment, and accepted, leaving his ill-gotten gains in the hands of the police." And as in this case, in all others. How much of the story is true is a question, but the relator says he has every reason to believe that such a graft has been worked even in Seattle.

AMONG THE CHURCHES. Its very unfortunate lor the African Methodist Episcopal organization in this city that enough dissention has arisen between the pastor and his parishoners to prompt the latter to call upon the courts to arbitrate a church difference of opinion. There is trouble in pretty nearly every church conducted by Negroes in the state of Washington, which, to say the least, is a most discouraging sign. There is room for one flourishing and prosper ous church among the colored folk in Seattle and the first religious organiza tion that will fill its pulpit with a worthy and meritorious divine, whether Methodist or Baptist, will get the Sunday evening crowds, and they attend church liberally no other time. Some of the trustees of the A. M. E. church have enjoined Rev. S. S. Free man from collecting or soliciting funds in the name of the church and the case is before the superior court today for final adjudication. Without discuss ing the merits or demerits of the case one way...

FRIDAY, DEC. 23, 1904. The play that is being presented at the Third Avenue Theatre this week is one that all well meaning people will do well to see. In the first place it is a true picture of life, and anyone will recognize in "Joe Pemberton," the boy as he is seen in every day life—that is, when he amounts to anything. The other members of the company sur rounding Miss Marie Heath are all very competent actors. There is no villain in the play and nobody is killed, but there is plenty to laugh at and you may shed a few tears, but they are shed for a good cause and you learn a moral from an ob ject picture that is worth seeing. L. J. Carpenter's big production, "A Little Outcast," which has broken all records the last two year.s, begins its third season at the Third Avenue Theatre next Sunday, December 25, with Dolly Dupree in the stellar role, assisted by Millicent Evans and a big com pany. The production has been enlarged and a new act written, and many surprises will be seen in ...
