SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XII, NO. 27 The Seattle Republican Established May, 1892 H. R. Cayton Editor and Publisher Susie Revels Cayton Associate SUBSCRIPTION RATES. One Year ....;. $2.00 Six Months 1.00 Three Months 60 Published every Friday at 214 Columbia St. Entered at the Postofflce at Seattle as Second class Mail Matter. WE NEED THE MONEY. Within the past week we have sent out bills to a number of subscribers to The Seat tle Republican and we did so because we need the money. Every time a subscriber beats us out of two dollars it's the same as Cashier Adams abstracting a small quantity of gold from the miners' poke. If every cent that is due us for subscription should be promptly paid we still would not have money to burn, or even buy expensive Ori ental rugs or an automobile, but, on the other hand, we would have sufficient money to meet our obligations and buy winter rai ment for those near and dear to us. We therefore hope that you will remember that the publishing of a week...

rather no judgment. His mistake is what is called an honest mistake —but, neverthe less, it was a serious mistake. Adams, once a thief, should not be put in a position where he could steal again. This does not mean he should never be given any work to do, but it does mean he should not be given that kind of work —where he could embezzle. There is much else that seems strange. Adams' method of stealing was simple, yet crude. He stole the dust deposited. This dust he weighed and put in the place of the amount abstracted an equal amount of black sand. This gold dust so stolen he sold to banks and banks redeposited it in the assay office. At least he so disposed of most of it. This sort of manipulation and barter of stolen gold dust has been going on for years and amounts to upwards of $200,000. And the bankers had no suspicion! Complaints without number have been made, yet there was no suspicion aroused in the minds of his superiors. The former paltry-pauper thief all at once put on al...

FRIDAY, DEC. 1, 1905. of 1904, over 60,000 miles of road, as com pared with the 36,000 miles of the North western and Pacific Coast states. The growth of the country at the present time does not center upon the Eastern states or the states of the middle district, but upon the states that lie west of a line drawn from Chicago to New Orleans. The mighty West is still an undeveloped equity in the balance sheet of our national wealth. That it is magnificent in its possibilities has been proven by the glorious results that have followed the first turning of its soil. As standing monuments to its resources and development there may be cited the Great Northern Railway Co., the Atchison Railway Co. and the Canadian Pacific Rail way Co. These railways drove their lines through territory absolutely virgin. They made their country as they went along. All the trails in the north country lead to the Great Northern, and it was upon the local business that followed these trails that Mr. Hill based...

POLITICAL POT-PIE The shake up at the assay office in this city has set the mouths of the politicians to wagging and it is being freely predicted by many of them that Superintendent Wing will be summarily removed and that I. B. Knickerbocker will be named as his suc cessor. It will be remembered that Samuel H. Piles, before he was elected, was reported as having promised this job to Mr. Knicker bocker, but when he started out to deliver the goods after he had been elected he found himself up against the real thing, as he learned that the president was not dis posed to disturb Mr. Wing. It is not the policy of the present administration to make removals simply to make vacancies for po litical henchmen of newly elected senators, hence up ot the time of the Adams expose Frederick A. Wing was lord of all he sur veyed at the assay office. The Piles hench men have broken lose in a fresh place since that rather deplorable event and are now openly declaring Wing will be removed by the presi...

The municipal ownership idea will not down, however, and if the Republicans ig nore the issue and those of the Republicans who believe in it continue to fight for it join issue with the Democrats and a municipal ownership ticket be upt in the field and some strong advocate of that theory is nominated he will give the Republican nominee the fight of his life for election. Just who such man will or may be is in the mysterious fu ture, but public sentiment is drifting along this channel and it is day by day baining more and more headway. MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP. John E. Humphries, in his address before the West Woodland Improvement Club, De cember 1, 1903, in part said: The Post-Intelligencer, in its debate with George Cotterill, has overlooked the ...

TALES OF THE TOWN. "The Bon Marche has no rabbit foot with which to catch the coming holiday trade, but it's going: to get it just the same," said Frank McDermott of that establishment one day this week. "The reason why the Bon Marche is going to get the trade," he con tinued, "is because a large double door was recently cut for another front entrance to the big store near Pike street, and the first customer to pass through after it had been completed was a 250-pound colored lady— colored both in name and nature. I told her she was the first to come through that en trance and I believed she would bring the store good luck, and I took pleasure in es corting her over to the glove counter and presented her with as fine a pair of kid gloves as the establishment boasted of. She smiled all over her face and after recover ing from the shock of her unexpected good fortune said, 'You sho' will have good luck from now on.'

NEGRO SELF-UPLIFTING. Contributions the Race Makes Through Churches to Its Own Education. Dr. Booker T. Washington in The Inde pendent. From time to time in the past a great deal of matter has been furnished to the public, with the praiseworthy purpose of portray ing the individual struggles and sacrifices of colored youths to secure an education. These efforts of struggling young men and women, with no inspiration in family tradi tion and fortune, and with little or no money with which to secure the knowledge they crave, is one of the most encouraging as well as pathetic features I have come across in my educational work during the past twen ty years. As a hopeful indication of race character, and I may safely so describe it, it must be of peculiar interest to the average American interested in the Negro people. On the other hand, much matter has also been furnished the public concerning the aid given the Negro race by philanthropic white people; attention is also frequently direct...

FRIDAY, DEC. 8, 1905. The Negro Baptists support quite a num ber of educational institutions, and to carry on the work the churches raised during the past year $85,888.18. To sum up, we find that the A. M. E. church contributed $51,601.86 for education al purposes last year; the A. M. E. Zion church, $20,706.54; the Colored Methodist Episcopal church, $45,000; the Methodist Episcopal, $15,926.40; the Baptists, $85, --888.18, making the total, $218,622.98, for only two branches of the Christian church. If the contributions of the Negro Congrega- tionalists, Presbyterians and Episcopalians, etc., be approximated, we should have prob ably an annual contribution for educational purposes by the Negro Christians of $250,, --000. Within the past ten years, it is safe to say, according to these figures, that the Negro in America has contributed at least $20,000,000 through his churches toward his own educa tion. This, I think, all fair-minded people will agree, is a pretty good record for a...

POLITICAL POT-PIE The Pie-maker of this paper is neither a prophet nor a son of a prophet as to his po litical prognostications, but after carefully putting two and two together, he believes he is always safe in saying that "they make four." Some time ago the Pie-maker made his political pie say, things in connection with the senatorial situation in this state, which, in view of subsequent developments, verged dangerously close to a genuine proph ecy, and the remarkable thing about the "subsequent development" is, the words used by the Pie-maker have been verified by one, who at the time was editor of the Walla Walla Union, and hated the Pie-maker for publishing the story. He, since that time, has fallen a victim to the Crocker-Baker-Ste venson combine and he defends himself in an open letter which will be seen below. That the readers of this paper may see how close it was to the facts the Pie-maker's ar ticle in its issue of November 24th, ult., is herewith reproduced. It seems tha...

FRIDAY, DEC. 8, 1905. "I could not possibly wish Senator Ankeny any greater misfortune in politics than to have as his advisers and counselors such men as Crocker, Stevenson and Baker, with their local satillites, Dr. Y. C. Blalock and 0. T. Cornwall. Very respectfully, "EUGENE LORTON." State Senator Walter J. Reed was elected mayor of North Yakima last Tuesday on a "retrenchment" ticket. There probably is not a more popular man in all Central Washington than Mr. Reed, and his friends all over the state will rejoice to hear of his recent popularity. In the last legislature Senator Reed won much fame as a legisla tor and as mayor of the most prosperous burg in Central Washington it is here pre dicted that he will prove a most brilliant suc cess. For four years he was register of the U. S. land office in North Yakima, where he achieved much fame for fairness and having been elected mayor of North Yakima on a retrenchment ticket the voters need have no fear but that he will carry out t...

SEATTLE'S BOND ISSUE. Now that the school election is a thing of the past, the Seattle property owners should give some consideration to the election that will be held in this city December 28th, which will vote whether or not the city shall issue $500,000 bonds to purchase ad ditional lands for park purposes. Before we had given this subject careful study it occurred to us that we would be doing the taxpayers, and espe cially the small taxpayers, a great favor by opposing the bond issue, but after making considerable in quiry we are free to confess we would be doing the latter class of taxpayers an injustice should we op pose the bond issue. A number of the largest taxpayers of the city have been consulted on the subject, and they are unani mously in favor of it. Now the burden of the tax will be borne by those men while the small taxpayer with only a home will not pay 10 per cent of the whole. The men who will pay the great bulk of this special tax will seldom, if ever, visit thos...

to use the bath room. His color was no ticed, and he was not permitted to do so. It was feared that some of the railroad men who were under the influence of the asso ciation might take offense at so evident an application of the doctrine of the brother hood of man, and thus much of the good in fluence exerted upon them would be lost. The Negro was mad clean through, but was unable to get his bath. A strange case of Negro discrimination recently took place here. A couple who dropped off the train to get married proceeded to look up a min ister after getting out their marriage license. Consulting the directory they finally found one and going to the address given rang the bell. The clergyman was one of the colored pastors of the city, and the couple turned and fled when they saw him. Industrially, too, the Negro has a hard row to hoe. The mere menial positions he is permitted to fill, but beyond that he is confronted with a stone wall of prejudice or race feeling. This was well shown ...

TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF WEEKLY PRESS. Owing to bad political feelings between Postmaster Hart son and the management of the Outburst of Spokane, the issue before the last was held up because there were not sufficient funds to the credit of the Outburst to pay the $1.50 postage, which holdup the Outburst pronounces "but petty spite." Any one who has ever seen Hartson knows he is a very little man and little men seem only capable of doing very little things. While the "home paper" is not always given the credit for what it really does toward building Up the community in which it is published it deserves, yet it looks as if the Port Orchard Independent had a selfish motive in devoting a double column black faced editorial to those of a community who '' do not fully appreciate the relations which exist between them selves and their home paper." If plenty of paid advertising is given the paper by the local business men, the relations be tween the two are very pleasing, but it's a hors...
