Mr. Ben Hendricks, a Singing Come dian. Mr. Ben Hendricks, who is now starring in "Ole Olson," is possessed of a delightful high barytone voice, which he knows thoroughly how to display to the best advantage, for he receives nightly ovations in the ren dering of his stirring and popular melodies, introduced during the actiion of the story. Probably the most tak ing numbers are, "Fair Land of Swed en," "A Game of Philope," "Northland Lullaby" and "A Swagger Swedish Swell." "Ole Olson" will appear for a week's engagement at the popular Third Ave nue Theater, starting with the usual Sunday matinee. It has become the fashion with cer tain journalists, or dramatic critics (?) to ridicule the melo-drama. "The Vir ginia Girl," at the Third Avenue The ater this week, is a melo-dramatic play, but it teaches an excellent moral les son and its lines are applauded to the echo whenever the numerous virtuous saying permeating the play are spoken by the actors. The discomfiture of the villain and ...

SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XI. NO. 44 POLITICAL POT=PIE There seems to be no doubt of the fact that Seattle and King county will be the political storm center of the state for the next four years, which is already gathering over the head of the Republican party even at this early stage of the game. First of all. King E _^^ H^k>^ WILL E. HUMPHREY. county is to take the initiative in leading Congressman Will E. Humphrey into polit ical retirement, if the Piles-Brownell plans work well, and to accomplish this feat Sena tor Piles has enlisted the aid, assistance and co-operation of some of the shrewdest politi cians in the county, and he will, so it is cur rently reported, import many outside leaders, who will take delight in sending Humphrey down and out. For Humphrey to win in the convention he must at least have the support of his home county, and this they believe they can take from him. # # # On the other hand, Humphrey, who recent ly returned from Washington, has already L , —~ JO...

H I i lH m. i 111 I GOV. ALBERT E. MEAD. BRADY'S CHEAP LIGHT PROPOSITION We have noticed that Edward Brady has filed with the City Council a petition requesting the City Council to fix a uniform charge for electric light furnished by the corporations under franchises granted by the City Council. We are pleased to see this matter brought to public attention. It is an open and notor ious fact that the charges for electric light in the City of Seattle are exhorbitant and practically amount to an extortion from the people. We believe that any company that receives the right and privilege to erect poles in the public streets is in duty bound to treat all of its patrons alike and that the charges made should be regulated by the City Council in the interest of the people. The cost of electricity when generated by water is the cheapest light ing that can be had. A question that the public should consider is this, why should the people in the City of Seattle pay Vie per kilo-watt hour for el...

FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 1905. Current Comment. A PICTURE FROM LIFE'S UNDER SIDE. Miss Ada Fairfield, of New York, is doing much to broaden, and thereby brighten the lives of the slum women in that city. "It is pitiful to see the constant struggle in the tenement house regions to have a bit of green and blossom in the house," says Miss Fairfield, and she and her co-workers are striving to grow plants on every vacant spot of land which they can use in the thickly con gested quarters. The fire escapes on the set tlement buildings furnish opportunities which they have grasped, and beautiful flow ers hold up their fragrant heads near the set tlment windows and carry to the despondent tenant a sweet message, which in some way draws him nearer God. '' The Slavonian wom en ; do they care for flowers?" is asked. '' Yes; they love flowers. Why, I have seen a Slavonian woman take her hard earned pen nies and pay them out freely to get a small plant for her window." "Do the Italian wom en care for fl...

FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 1905. Afro-Americanism Charles W. Anderson has been confirmed by the Senate as collector of internal revenue for the port of New York. The position pays a salary of $4,500.00 per year .and has some tw To hundred sub-appointments. This is the first instance in the history of the country that a Negro has been appointed to so important a position north of the Mason and Dixon line. In North Carolina a white woman has writ ten to the Governor of that state confessing that she had perjured herself in testifying in the courts to the effect that a Negro had attempted to assault her, and she had done so because she was paid to so testify by an other party, presumably an enemy of the Negro, and she received the sum of $10 for the testimony she gave. The Negro is iv jail awaiting execution for the alleged crime. Wonder what Tillman and Vardeman think of that for white supremacy ? General Omaya may not be the Napoleon of the twentieth century, as he was recently pictured, but ...

PERSONAL. Mrs. P. F. Keeble has gone to visit with her parents in Colorado, and is not expected to return before next fall, when Mr. Keeble will have a home of his own to take her to. There seems to be a carnival of crime raging in and about Seattle just now among the Afro-Americans. These people are altogether too much under the ban of general public censure to encourage or to permit such a state of affairs to continue. Granted, the Negro is no less criminal than the Cau cassian, under the circumstances he cannot afford to be. There may be no plausible remedy for it, but there is no doubt of the fact that the few Afro-Americans in this city hold themselves too much aloof from each other for their own good. No two think or act so as to create a common cause. Talk to one and the faults of the other is the chief topic of conversation, and from his words he is out to do his fellow black men all the personal injury in his power. Is there an excuse for such? Why not pull up instead of pu...

'SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XI. NO. 45 POLITICAL POT=PIE Shortly after the recent senatorial contest had come to an abrupt close, J. Will Lysons tells an amusing story at the expense of two well known politicians, both of whom were conspicuous characters in that rather re markable legislative battle. "I was walking up Second avenue," said Mr. Lysons, "one Saturday and met Senator John L. Wilson. After passing the pleasantries of the day, we began to discuss things in general. We had not been talking very long when State Sena tor C. F. Clapp came along. I spoke, as did Senator Wilson, which was returned by Sen ator Clapp. It was then a party of three and knowing there was no good blood existing between Wilson and Clapp, the situation for me became very embarrassing and I began to get them in a moving position. Senator Wilson would not have it so and stood there looking up and down Senator Clapp as if he was looking for an article at a bargain coun ter. 'Well,' said Clapp, after a long s...

In the entire State of Washington there is but one Negro holding « political job, and he is Will Turner in Ta coma, a position he has held for efficiency for the past twelve years, and that, too, under the Democrats as well as the Republicans, and this is so despite the fact this state gave Roosevelt 70.000 plurality and the state tick et on an average of 40,000 plurality. # # # The Crocker political wheel has been given a new spoke in the appointment of George Baker, of Goldendale, United States marshal of the new federal court of this state.

FRIDAY. APRIL 7. 1905. A representative of a circus was before the City Council last Monday evening, with a view of getting a License for its circus to do business in Seattle for two days next August, and was disgusted at being expected to pay more than $500 per day for license, and de clared that such a sum was more than any other city of like size charged his company. If the City Council gives these blood suckers a license for a cent less than $1,000 per day it will be simply patting a premium on rob bing-the community. The shows take all the way from $'50,000 to $100,000 out of the city the two days they keep open house and they do not leave over $10,000 in the city with the business men. These sleek-tongued agents start at this work early in order to avoid op position, in other words, start at it early enough to catch public sentiment off its guard. The most absorbing question of the day, the Easter bonnet. Mother has been down and priced all kinds. Daughter has spotted several ...

FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 1905. Afro-Americanism It is rumored that Gov. Mead may parole F. W. D. Mays, of Pomeroy, and Rev. Scott, a colored man, from the penitentiary. Both men were sent up for criminally assaulting young girls. It is said that close confine ment is becoming detrimental to the health of these old men, so the governor has been asked to parole them. Before the governor acts he should ascertain the condition of the health of the young girls that were ruined and of their future prospects in life. There are sufferings greater than being confined in the pen, to which no doubt the girls can testify, and under the circumstances the old men are not deserving of much if any sym pathy. Mays, especially, deserves all the pun ishment he has received and then some, for a bigger hypocrite than he never existed. Senator Russell in attempting his release may manifest some sympathy, but he shows poor judgment. —Columbia Chronicle. CONVICT MAC SCOTT, Paroled after serving two years of a fift...

TALES OF THE TOWN. Prejudice on the part of one race against another often produces some rather peculiar coincidents that are not only laughable, but frequently both nauseating and disgusting. For an example, a well-known man in Se attle was overheard one day this week telling his experience with a number of Englishmen and Irishmen, whom he had used in the construction of a railroad. The two nationalities hated each other as does the devil "holy wa ter," and the day seldom passed that one or two scraps did not occur be tween the two people over racial dif ferences. "I was with the men as their foreman for quite awhile, and after I had been with them some months I always knew I was in for at least two lickings a week, one from the English because I was not an Englishman, and one from the Irish because I was not an Irishman. The job paid well and I was willing to stand both sides licking me, if I could only hang on to it, which I did. But I saw no use of the two races always fighting ...

AT THE THEATRES. "The Moonshiner's Daughter," the play that is being produced at the 1 hird Avenue Theatre this week, has proven an agreeable surprise to the many patrons of that popular play house. It was advertised as a melo drama, and it proved to be the most interesting one seen there for a long time; and not only this, it is being pre sented by such a clever company of actors that one would have to search with a microscope to find which one possesses the most talent, for in their special characterization of the differ ent parts of the play they are as good as any that have been seen here even at higher prices before, and the scen ery is realistic and beautitul. "Across the Desert" is the title of the play that will receive its initial production at the Third Avenue The atle next Sunday. The scenes are laid in Arizona and Southern California, where the great American Desert is the widest and dryest, and the inci dents that occur are vivid pictures of life inciuental tc an emigra...
