EDITORIAL VIEW POINT Raising the price of gas and lowering the heat ing units of the same appears to meet the approval of the state supreme court and the Seattle Lighting Company has been given a free hand at the raising and lowering business. In case an extra judge is to be named for King County Gov. Hart would make no mistake in throw ing the appointment into that well known Clay pool. "Oh that mine enemy would write a book" or even publish a newspaper and I would soon see his finish. If times continue as dull in Seattle as they now seem to be even the associated industries will cast longing eyes at the bread line. The editor of Cayton's Monthly takes this oppor tunity to thank those who sent in their "tin" in ap preciation to the change. Alabama and Arkansas have taken to good road building. This is doubtless due to the growing popu larity of lynching bees and the desire of more of the white citizens of the sate to be present and witness such glorious events. Who goes to Alaska t...

f) More Truth Than Poetry Most persons have heard of the man who was hold ing a cow by the tail until another man with a gun could shoot it down for beefing purposes. The man with the gun was cross eyed and while taking aim at the cow's head, the holding man got the idea that the shooting man was looking at him instead of the cow's head, so he hurriedly, and I am inclined to think, excited ly, called out to the shooting man; "Do you shoot where you look? "you bet I do quickly came the reply: Then, you get somebody else to hold this cow, for you are looking at me." Not long since I found myself in an automobile driven by one of Seattle's well known citizens, who has the reputation of being a speed bug. On enter ing the car I cautioned him about fast driving, but he had not gone very far on the journey before he turned a dangerously sharp curve at the rate of thirty miles an hour. I screamed to him to slow down whtcn he did after he had turned the curve which was then quite un necessa...

Negro Denounces Crapshooting When a colored repesentative in the Missouri legislature arraigned and actually denounced public gambling in general and crapshooting in particular it seemed sufficiently momentus to the Associated Press to chronicle the astounding anunciation to its entire morning and afternoon clienteel. Think about it a N?gro denouncing crapshooting; when oh when will wonders cease? I read the press dispatch, and thought for a moment and then asked myself the question, is crapshooting so characteristic of the colored man of this country that it is the exception and not the rule for a colored man religious or otherwise to shoot craps? Before trying to anwser my own question, one way or the other, I sent my mind back to my early childhood and let it rise step by step, among my colored ac qua'ntances and associates from the cradle to the grave, mentally noting as I did, the crapshooters among them, and I was suprised at the very limited number of all of that unnumbered h...

!()»•• About Mt. Zion Baptist Church Mt. Zion Baptist Church of Seattle as it now stands is a magnificent monument to the indomitable determination of its pastor and membership. Some two years ago all concerned reached the conclusion that a new church for the ever 1- growing congregation of tho Mt. Zi6n was absolutely necessary. And at once they began to lay plans for accomplishing such an under taking. The membership was divided into companies each with captains and lieutenants, for the purpose of getting together the necessary funds for the erec tion of the desired edifice in which to worship. They were not able to continue in the old church untjl the: new one was built, because they had an opportunity to dispose of the old one at a very liberal figure and so they sold, using the amount as a nest egg to^'con's'fcrntly add too for future use. Nothing but the best of team work brought success out of seeming financial chaos,'but one and all did his and her bit such as only concientio...

'h fjtifele Sam's Japanese Colony ; Japanese: are not wanted as land owners in the state of Washington, and to prevent them from so do ing the Seventeeth Legislature of the state is about to enact,a drastic alien land law, and thereby debar even desirable white aliens the privilege of owning lands in the state in order to legalize the move against the Japanese 1. On general principles the alien land law is the de sideratum for Che future good of the state. No alien should have, the right to own lands in the state and yet coniribute nothing toward her upbuilding. The proposed law therefore will hit the English land grab ber at long range a harder blow than the Japanese, and '&• should' do so, as the European land owner is a fl parasite' while the Japanese is a producer. There fs"n'o: 'doubt of the fact that the European emigrant to the United 'States will the more readily assimilate with'thle citiiena hereof than will the Japanese, and the coming of great numbers of Japanese to t...

The City Election of sea]t§|f T. H. BOLTON though not endorsed by tthel CENTRAL LABOR COUNCIL, yet he ran more than a thousand votes ahead of the candidate endorsed by the council, thus thoroughly demonstrating the general popularity of the man. The six years that he has served as councilman have been years of activity and usefulness alike for the masses as well as the classes, also for the city as well as the community. In other words, on all pub lic questions he has demonstrated that he posesses a sane and safe mind. The only issue in the campaign now raging in the Seattle municipal election is the purchase of the street car system from the Stone and Webster aggregation, and Mr. Bolton voted for the confirmation of the sale in the city council because the people by a four to one vote instructed him and the other members of the city council so to do. Without re;servatiin or apolo gies he now favors the paying of the interest indebted ness accruing on the bonds since the date of pur...

16 CAYTON'S .MONTHLY Better Late Than Never Miss Sue and I drove down to Kent, to fry lo find another tent, in which to print a magazine, from whence we hoped a bit of "cream." Now Kent is just a country town, but full of men of much renown, who own fine homes and limouzines, in which they sleep and have pipe dreams. The town looked good to Sue and I, and so we thought we'd make a try, and now the magazine is out, but thj cream it took another route; into the coffers of the press, it hid i'self in gilded dress, and then sneaked into his safe, and called itself a country waif. But if at first you don't succeed, then try and try again, we read, so number two is in your hands all trimmed and bound in circliing bands, from it more cream will surely come and Sue and I may then get some. Surrounded by big country farms, the town of Kent has many charms, her business men are full of p^p, and hope to make a mighty rep, in landing plants and factories fine, to work and run on regular time, a...
