FRIDAY. APRIL 28. 1905. Items of Interest President Morale's decree putting into ex ecution the modus vivendi instituted between the United States and his country is final with regard to the debt-settling policy of Santo Domingo. All of the customs revenues in the island are tie"d up by the arrangement and there is nothing, regardless of inclination, with which to settle the Belgian claim. Should the Belgian minister at Santo Do mingo City protest, as have been his instruc tions, nothing will be gained thereby. j£ v 4P • Judge Edward F. Dunne, the Democratic nominee, was elected mayor of Chicago by a plurality of 24,248. His election meant that the second city in the United States has gone on record in favor of immediate municipal ownership of her street railways. To return a municipal ownership verdict at the polls was a thing unheard of before April 4, as far <is a city of any sfze is concerned. * # # The advisory board of engineers which will act in co-operation with the new P...

PLANT FLOWERS IN YOUR YARD. No city west of the Missouri River in comparison to the number of Ne groes therein has as many of them who own their homes as in Seattle. The spirit of home getting among the Negroes of Seattle became an epidem ic some five years ' ago. and it has not as yet abated and as a re sult, as has already been said, more of them have good homes than can be found in any other city in the West. Now that they have the homes, The Seattle Republican would suggest that the same spirit of rivalry that prompt ed so many of them to buy homes will prompt them to beautify those homes as well. A home may be ever so humble as to building material and architecture, but if the yard and the surroundings be planted with flowers and grasses, its value both real and imaginary will be doubly enhanced. To beautify your yard and its surround ings cost practically nothing except your labor, which can be done after you go home from work. In other words, you can beautify your yard while ...

Ver ner, well known to the patrons of Se attle, will be seen next Sunday and Monday in Herbert Bashford's politi cal comedy, "The Honorable John North.'

SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XI. NO. 49 POLITICAL POT=PIE There was a municipal election in Spokane last Tuesday and the Pie-Maker is of the opinion the Republicans of that city, and es pecially one Acuff, is well aware of that fact. While the Democrats seemed badly divided, they having two candidates, yet the Repub licans were worse divided, though they had but one candidate, and as a result, the Demo crats almost made a clean sweep, electing F. L. Daggett, mayor, the balance of the ticket, and all of the members of the council but three. Spokane of late has fallen into the habit of going Democratic, and that, too, de spite the recent encouragement that she has been given by Governor Albert E. Mead in the way of an over liberal apportionment of state patronage. Sooner or later, it seems to the Pie-maker, the Republicans will wish they had their Johnny Wilson back to help them get delivered from the body of that dead Democrat, which on account of their contentiousness has been fastened a...

TALES OF THE TOWN More than olio heart in Seattle ached for Ah Son, the Chinese slave girl, who must, according to the laws of the United States, go back to China and prostitution.

It was only the head-strong element, to be found in every popular movement, who misrepresented mat ters by talking loud and manifesting a spirit of retaliation. The conservative sentiment, which finally assumed control, acted simply for self-defense, as individual intelligence gave them knowledge to formulate plans for mutual protection. It was expected that some of the howlers would break their pledge, as they always do when they cannot boss matters, but they constitute a small part of the business volume of Olympia. It is the bigots, the whited sepulchres, in business as well as in professions of righteousness, those people who lay a special claim to forgiveness of those who are despiteful, or who turn the left cheek when the right has been smitten. They condemn with vehemence and retract without reason, while biting the tongue to re pre...

FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1905. Items of Interest The Hoboken Tank & Storage Company has turned out the largest tank of its kind in the world.

WILLIAMS GETS TEN YEARS. Benjamin Williams, who was charged with having cut to death a man in a saloon row at Ravensdale some weeks ago, changed his plea of not guilty and plead guilty to manslaughter last Saturday and was given ten years in the penitentiary for his crime. Wil liams has the record and reputation of having been a very quiet and peace able citizen, but under the leadership of some one else and under the influ ence of John Barleycorn, committed the act for which he is now paying the penalty, trying to get even with "poor white trash." This should be a warn ing to other colored men, Avho are al ways ready with their knife, razor or gun to slash some one else of send a leaden messenger of death into their bodies. There is no more use of either a miner or the average man carrying a deadly weapon in this country for his fellow man than there is for you to pull a wagon round after you to carry home the gold you find during the day. The man who will carry such deadly weapons...

NEGRO BUSINESS LEAGUE. The next annual meeting of the Na tional Negro Business League will be held in the Palm Garden of the Grand Central Palace, New York City, Au gust 16, 17 and 18, 1905. It is not, perhaps, saying too much to state that this meeting will bring together one of the largest and most representative bodies of colored peo ple that has ever assembled in this country, and the present plan of the officers not only embraces the bring ing together of a large representation of colored business men and women from the United States, but from the West Indian Islands and other foreign countries as well. Great preparations are already un der way on the part of the New York Local Business League for the recep tion and entertainment of the dele gates. Aside from the business that will be attended to at the meetings, the social features of the gatherings are to be made very prominent, and it is the hope that the male delegates will not only be present themselves in large numbers, b...

SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XI. NO. 50 What Will Make Seattle A Great City The City of Seattle was formed for the purpose of giving to the citizens the full benefit of all of the privileges and rights that could be secured by municipal government. . The Constitution of the State has given to the citizens of Seattle the right to form their own charter and to make their own laws, consistent with and subject to the Constitution and laws of the State. This city is now governed by what is known as the Freeholders Charter, adopted by a vote of the citizens. The object of having a municipality is to secure for the common good all of the advantages that can be had by combining the forces of the people of the city together. It gives them advantages that are far beyond the ad vantages given to persons outside of a city government. The city has its police department, its executive department and other departments provided for under the Charter. In addition to the powers given by the Charter, the L...

Now that the trial of Nan Patterson is about to be removed from the stage of excite- ment the sensational public drops down to witness "Bluebeard" Johann Hoch's trial.

FRIDAY, MAY 12, 1905. TALES OF THE TOWN An informal dinner was tenederd Judge Milo A. Root, one of the justices of the supreme court of this state, on Saturday evening last at the Rainier club. Thirty of his personal friends and admirers were seated at the table. Senator Samuel H. Piles presided. Among those present who respond ed to informal toasts were Judge C. 11. Han ford, of the United States district court; Mayor Ballinger, Congressman WTII E. Humphrey and ex-Chief Justice of the Ter ritory Hon. Orange Jacobs. The superior judges of King county were likewise present, as well as- other distinguished members of the Seattle bar. Letters of regret were re ceived from several well known lawyers. The affair was a very fine one. As plans, orders, ordinances and move ments, which are to produce "cleaner Seat tle" materialize the public in general and citizen in particular, especially merchants, have been not a little surprised at the turn things have taken.

The city has, in connection with the Cedar River Water System, an elec tric light system, which, it' properly administered, would furnish light at a nom inal expense. As now administered, it has not furnished to the people the light that was intended. There is no reason why the electric light bills should be, by one half, as high as they are. There is no reason why private corporations should fatten upon the citizens of Seattle in the lighting business, when it has its own power plant, and by the addition of dynamos and pole lines, it could light the city at night, as well as private residences, at small cost. Reform is necessary in the electric light business. The City of Seattle is one of the best cities in the world for street car lines and transportation upon street cars. The amount of money taken in, in this city, by the Seattle Electric Company, in 1903, was $2,096,725.00, as near as one can find out; in 1904, it was $2,321,235.00; its net receipts in 1903 were $598,821.00: in...

FRIDAY, MAY 12, 1905. octopus wants franchises, and to have friendly officers enables it to get fran chises cheap. Instead ot paying 10 per cent and 12 per cent to the city for franchises as Ottawa and other cities get, it only pays the nominal sum of 2 per cent of the gross earnings. Instead of it being assessed at what it is claimed to be worth, when the preferred stock is valued at 120 and its bonds at 110, making in the neighborhood of $10,000,000.00 in value, it is only as sessed' at $1,700,000.00. All these matters the octopus is interested in, in the city election. ' I might say to you, ladies and gentlemen, that for a man to occupy the position of Mayor, Corporation Counsel, member of the Board of Public Works, or member of the City Council, with the powerful organization that is under the control of the Octopus, it is almost impossible for him to withstand the desires and requests of the Octopus. The Octopus, with its numbers of agents, officers and hired servants and stron...

Do you know that the idea of a five-cent fare on street car lines is a relic of the ages when they had horse cars, and the expense of pulling street cars by mules and horses was ten times greater than it is running them by elec tricity? If they could pull them by horse and mule power at a five-cent fare, in 1862-3-4 and 5, and subsequent years, they can pull them now by electricity, in Seattle at a two-cent fare and make a big profit. The five-cent fare was in force when the rate of interest on money was 10 per cent and more, and now money can be borowed, in large quantities, at 3 per cent and 4 per cent, and a five-cent fare is clear out of proportion. A two-cent fare with all transfers, in Seattle, would make it profitable to run street car lines. Elec tricity in this city can be furnished in proportion as cheap as water. The cheapness of electricity furnished by water power is now revolutionizing the world. The old horse car cost the company about four cents per passenger; the el...
