| POLITICAL POT-PIE I The new legislative apportion ment law gives King county twenty five members of the next legislature out of a total of 136. Pierce county has fifteen members, which is two or three more than she is entitled to under the strict reading of the state constitution. There is no good rea son for this discrimination, for the constitution plainly declares that the state shall be apportioned on the basis of population. Senator Wil shire is blamed by those who have watched proceedings at Olypmia for the gratuity of two or three extra legislators to Pierce county. He had the committee with him, and allowed Senator Ed Hamilton of Tacoma to defeat the purpose of the committee bill by reason of his inability to cope with the Pierce county senator in a contest for points. With the com mittee behind him and the constitu tion of the state to back him up, Sen ator Wilshire made an ignominious surrender, for which he is quite like ly to receive just punishment at the hands of the...

AMUSEMENTS The best military play of modern times, in fact one of the best ever written, "Held by the Enemy," Wil liam Gillette's famous war play, will be the attraction at the Third Ave nue theater commencing with a mat inee next Sunday. The production is under the management of Howard & Doyle, one of the best known man agerial firms in the country. The company presenting it has been care fully selected for this one play, and embraces well known artists of abil ity. Nothing the equal of "Held by the Enemy" has been given to the public by an American author dur ing the past twenty-five years. The story is so beautifully told, so natu ral and thoroughly interesting that people who witnessed it on former occasions will go to see it again. New special scenery will be a feature of the production. Of the few plays that are consider ed worthy of securing a place in modern literature, the people's and critics' favorite, 'The Prisoner of Zenda," takes precedence over all other works of ...

mJtfWFPJ BWMBMI9W* JWiljilj |||JHjmilH| I|||»»H||»u | POLITICAL POT-PIE I Every election emphasizes the fact that the people are freeing them selves from political bondage; that 1 the respectable elements no longer consider themselves bound to sup-1 port the principals or tools of a cor- [ rupt machine, simply because the' top of the ticket is headed Republi- \ can, Democratic or Populist. In a j recent political convention in King county five votes were needed to se- J cure the balance of power, and five I representatives of popular govern ment were paid $600 in gold for I their votes. This is not an excep tional case, for every one knows the | custom is a general one, and the one, who has the means and fails to cor rupt his fellow-citizens by purchas ing their votes is considered too soft for practical politics. If any evi dence is needed to substantiate the above, the action of the schemers in opposition of the direct primary would be enough to supply it all. Hon. M. S. Quay has ...

AMUSEMENTS "The Little Minister," which is justly enough termed the greatest success of the century, has been se cured by Manager Cort for the at traction at the Grand Opera House next week, beginning with the mat inee Sunday, and this splendid dra matic treat is to be presented with its complete scenic effects, properties, costumes, etc., and interpreted by a company of positive excellence from first to last.

Philanthropist Carnegie Distributes Five Million Dollars Among His Former Employees- Breaks All Previous Records in Charitable Donations—"Was Deter mined to Not "Die Rich." Last Wednesday morning brought the Hon. Benjamin Harrison, ex president of the United States, statesman, orator and philanthropist, to the great crossing place between life and death. The distinguished statesman, after a brief illness, peacefully passed away at 4:45 that day, which closed a career of one of the most brilliant characters that the United States has ever produced. Benjamin Harrison won fame as a lawyer, teacher, soldier, statesman and executive while he was living his three score years and ten. No man's opinions were more high!} and generally respected than thos^ of Gen. Harrison. And even after he had retired from the presidency, though living a semi-retired life, nevertheless, when great public questi...

( POLITICAL POT-PIE ) The report comes from Tacoma that Senator Stantou Warburtori is a candidate for congress against Mr. Cushman. Of all the exhibitions of gall that have ever been witnessed in this state this certainly takes the cake. For the past sixty days at Olympia Senator Warburton has been known as "the wobbler." The title tits him exactly. No man in the senate has dodged more rolls calls than he ever since lie has been in the state senatte, and he has no fixed idea about anything except an idea that he wants to make himself popu lar whenever he casts a vote. No more disgusting display of duplicity was ever made than he gave an ex hibition of on the Sunday theater question before the senate. lie gave an absolute pledge, it is said, to the business men of Tacoma, to vote for a bill for the opening of first-class theaters on Sunday evenings, and the first time the bill was up he did vote for it. It was defeated, and he voted for a reconsideration of the vote. A few days later...

NEGRO RACE Throughont the Realm of the Great United States. Old South Carolina still has Slavery —The Innocent Negro Sent to Life Imprisonment—The same as the Crimnal One—Other Points Con cerning the Colored Race. Senator Tillman, the one-eyed old monster from South Carolina, ought to be well pleased with the following state of affairs, concerning the Negroes in that state, recently made public by a grand jury investi gation, which practically declares a state of actual slavery exists there. The Inter Ocean crystallizes the af fair in the following: Negro laborers are induced by va rious means to sign contracts which make them virtually the slaves of their employers. Into these con tracts they are led by their ignorance and poverty. When these means fail to procure the planters the desired supply of labor, Negroes are arrester] by local officials on various charges, but, instead of being brought to trial are sent to work on various planta tions. Some of these planters lease con vict...

Spring seems to be coining our way. Spring election crops have begun to bud. Tacoma's Fawcett has been pulled again, and now it is filling a bung in a Republican barrel. The mayor and chief of the police should either be made to enforce the laws as enacted by the council or themselves be made to resign. Renting a place to do business in and likewise one to live in appears to be an extravagant luxury that everybody living in Seattle must tol erate. Did Gov. Rogers desire to dodge the obligation of having to appoint one Plinny Allen as "printing ex pert?" Was that the reason for vetoing the printing bill? "Accident week" might be aptly applied to the pr...

I POLITICAL POT-PIE 1 Jf Senator Addisoß G. Foster thinks he will strengthen himself in King county by appointing Mayor Humes as collector of customs at the port of Port Townsend he is sadly mistaken. Doubtless he might strengthen himself with Levi An keny, but he would not make a single vote in King county for either Mr. Ankeny or himself by making such an appointment. The Pie-maker here admits that Tom Humes is quite a factor in the politics of this city, especially when he is a candi date for the mayoralty, simply be cause there is at present quite a strong immoral renegade element of humanity in the city of Seattle, who strongly favor the election of Tom Humes for mayor because under him they can ply their nefarious trades with impunity just so they "cut it in two" with <=ome of the gang; but when there is no longer any hope of them having Humes to misrule the city as mayor, and he leaves the county and takes a political position somewhere else, all of his followers will pass...

f POLITICAL POT-PIE I muMmm m uu m mm nnrmimV^ Leigh Hunt is a name that will not be without its charm among the politicians of this slate, and more especially of this county, for a good : many years to come. There are to be found but few persons now living in King county but to whom; the name of L. S. J. Hunt is as familiar as though they were personally ac quainted with 4 the man possessing the cognomen, and that, too, despite the fact that Mr. Hunt has been ab sent from the city since 1894. Few men seldom ever become so closely identified with a great city's growth as did Leigh Hunt with that of Seat tle, for so nearly inseparable are they that now in one's daily routine of business even at the present time the expression of "those" were in the good old days of Leigh Hunt" can be heard two and three times every day. His friends, though he was absent from the city, seem to have never ceased in a single instance to worship his memory, sing his praise and pray for his return. His en...
