SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XII. NO. 9 POLITICAL POT=PIE "The politician outside of King county that has been led to believe that Congressman Will E. Humphrey will not have a solid delegation from his home county at the next state convention has been grossly deceived," said a prominent politician one day this week WILL E. HUMPHREY and one, who in the past, has not particu larly been an enthusiastic Humphrey man. "King county as a county has made no agreement with any other section of the state to the effect that, if she got a United States senator she would not ask for Humphrey's renqmination, and it will not be a very wise move on the part of any King county man to attempt to bring about any such results. Will Humphrey will have every delegate from King county to the next state conven tion, and they will be enthusitstic for his renomination." The Pie-maker heartily agrees with the above statement and wishes to add that it is about time this anti-Humph rey talk be given a black eye. The...

the functions for which it was inaugurated. For some time prior to the institution of this department the Glasgow public suffered from high telephone rates, bad service, and generally indifferent treatment. Even a gov ernment inquiry did little to help matters, so the city determined to enter the field and endeavor to provide a system which would be supplementary to the existing one, be cheaper in charges, and thereby extend the uses of the telephone to all classes, at the same time improving the service generally. That these objects have been carried out may be proved by the fact that before the corporation telephones started there were only between 6,000 and 7,000 exchange lines in the city, and now that number is nearly quadrupled. Then the standard rate was $50, in some cases as much as $125 was charged. Now the average cost of an ex change telephone works out about a little over $25; the services throughout the city are satisfactory; the telephone has reached classes hitherto c...

So, as one climbs some of these hlls while the hot sun is beaming on his back he may take comfort in the thought that the immense elevations of land over which he is endeavoring to travel aid in lessening the expense when Seattle "pays up" for her clean streets. # # # Differenct of Opinion. Dr. Woods Hutchinson, secretary of the Oregon board of health, ventured the asser ton that a peculiar form of galloping tuber culosis was to be found in this section. This assertion has caused much discussion, not only from the medical men of Washington, but from many outside of the medical cir cles. It is the concensus of opinion that ow ing to the dampness of the clmate, the Sound cities are not the most desirable for those who are already affected with tuberculosis, but that the quick forms of it are not com mon to t...

We see the trusts and big corpora tions buying city councils and legislatures, as if they were so much merchandise. The men who do the buying are high up in the social scale, they are men who profess the belief in the teachings of the lowly Nazarine, but they do not hesitate to approach a poor devil of a legislator or a councilman, who has not one spare dollar, and who is prob ably in debt, to sell out his honor and the interests of his constituents, and for what purpose? Why, in order that big business corporations may amass greater amounts of money, pay their stockholders higher divi dends and become the masters of the city or state. The heads of these corporations are apparently more willing to buy up the mem bers of a city council or a state legislature than they are to pay the people as a whole for the privileges they seek. In discussing this question of graft,...

SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XII. NO. 10 TALES OF THE TOWN And Yet There's Money in Hosiery. During the races J. B. MacDougal, the well known dry goods merchant, was a fre quent visitor at the Meadows and seemed to enjoy the fun as well as the crowds that were always present and taking a chance at putting a dollar in the pool, trusting to get at least ten dollars in return, which they seldom ever did. One day while waiting for the races to begin, MacDougal sat talking to a friend and, naturally enough, the con versation drifted into a discussion of the profit- and loss in the dry goods business. In singling out the things on which good money was made, Mr. Mac- Dougal emphatically declared, "There is no money in hosiery," and went on to explain why there was not. But before the conver sation had been completed the first race was on and the betting got lively. Near the brace of business men sat a rather fastidious Avoman, who seemed to be as modest as a basket of chips, but the prancing st...

when lie saw his mail sack by his bed. He was bewildered for a few minutes. Had he simply dreamed he had taken the mail to the train .' But soon it all dawned upon him. He had taken his 'Sunday britches' to the train instead of the mail sack, and the train not stopping at the depot, was five miles away, perhaps, before the error was detect ed. It is not recorded whether or not he went to church the following Sunday, as those were times when Arthur Griffin did not number his dollars in the six figures, as he now does." He Kissed a Cow. "That train on which Judge Griffin's trousers were takenaway and the mistake not being discovered before it was five miles away, reminds me of an incident in Kansas some years ago, when trains first made their ap pearance on the prairies, 1" said one of the group of story tellers. "A young traveling' salesman, who was not accustomed to trains pulling out on time, went leisurely down to the depot chatting with his best girl, and his very heart seemed to...

FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1905. PASSES. (By John E. Humphries.) Corruption of public office, graft and brib ery are eating out the morals of the people. When I came to the Territory of Washing ton, and the constitutional convention was in session, I had prepared a provision to put in the constitution prohibiting public officers from accepting passes from transportation companies. I forwarded the provision to Senator Trustin P. Dyer, a member of the constitutional convention. The provision provided that any public officer accepting a pass from a transportation company should forfeit his office. The members of the con stitutional convention, all of them with passes in their pockets, placed the provision in the constitution with an amendment that the legislature could pass laws to place the provision into effect; but finally the legisla ture of 1905 enacted a statute prohibiting the use of passes. When the freeholders' committee for forming the charter of Seat tle was in session a provision wa...

A few more shotgun weddings in Seattle and unscrupulous men will come to the con clusion that women have rights that men are bound to respect.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1905. POLITICAL POT=PIE Ex-Mayor J. T. Ronald has bobbed up again in the political arena, having been appointed a member of the board of regents of the University of Washington, succeed ing George 11. King, whose term of office has recently expired. Periodically, Mr. Ron ald conies to the front, but his coming has not been accompanied with either sounding brass or tinkling cymbals. His experience as mayor of Seattle has hung over him like a great black damp and every time fortune favored him from a party standpoint his ad ministration soon began to crowd him down until by the time of the general election he would not receive votes enough to realize that he was in the race. Despite the un favorable criticisms of J. T. Ronald he made a good official. He was honest and upright and that is more than a great many others can say, that is if they tell the truth. # « # Hon.

SPEAKS KIND WORDS. An editorial in the Los Angeles Times of the 18th instant, headed, "The Black Man's Burden," is a very splendid tribute of encouragement to the race. It says: We hear a great deal, now and then, about the white man's burden, but the black man has his burdens, too, though never a word is said about them by anybody. The Negro, the world over, has had a lot of heavy loads on his back since he began, not to speak of the lashes and blows that same poor back has had to bear. But patiently has he borne his burdens— our brother of the dark skin —patient- ly and bravely has he borne them in deed . Among the present burdens the Negro has to bear is the senseless enmity of certain envenomed white men who are known as, and who pride themselves on being "nigger-haters." The prince of these is Gov. Vardaman of Mississippi, of whom it was set forth in yesterday's telegraph col umns of the Times that he is about to make a campaign for his election to the United States senate on t...

SOME "GREATER SEATTLE" MAKERS. J. M. Colman—A Seattle pioneer of the sixties, is the spirit of the Colman building, one of the most magnificent structures on the Pacific Coast, and barring none, the best patronized by business men for office rooms of all Seattle blocks. Mr. Colman and his two sons are splendid specimens of the "ideal American" and the very best type of Yankee energy. J. M. Colman is now beyond three score and ten years of age, but is still active and in the group on another page of Men Making Seattle he is deserving of a prominent place. Granville Morris Haller —Was the designer and erector of the Haller build ing, a cut of which appears on another page. The Haller for many years was the leading office building in Seattle and even yet it does not take a back seat. It is modern from top to bottom and every suite of rooms therein are occupied by prominent business or professional men. Though its founder home years ago passed over the "great divide," yet he left a son,...

THE CITY OF SEATTLE. By JAMES B. MEIKLE One of the most interesting, as well as one of the most remarkable, things of the present generation is the growth and development of the cities of America, and particularly those located upon the Pacific Coast. Seattle and Los Angeles, located 1,200 miles apart, one in the extreme Northwest and the other in the Southwest, have astonished the world by their progress during the past five or six years. Los Angeles has attracted thousands of permanent residents by virtue of her winter climate, which makes Southern Calirornia a Mecca for those who have the means and desire to escape the rigors of the Eastern winter. Seattle, on the other hand, is be coming famous as a summer resort, for during the summer months there is no more delightful place in the world than the Puget Sound country. While the people of other sections of the country are sweltering in the sultry heat of midsummer the for tunate inhabitants of this country are enjoying the bright...
