The SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. VIII, NO. 38 POLITICAL POT PIE. Next Monday night will begin the . preliminary skirmish for the big j municipal fight in Republican circles in this city, which will terminate at the convention one week from today. At the caucus delegates will be nom inated who will be voted for at the i primaries, whichh will be held Wed nesday, February 19, and the success-; ful candidates at those primaries will make up the convention to be held Fri day, February 21, which will nomin ate the Republican municipal ticket for the coming election to be held on March 4. As the time draws nearer the fight waxes warmer, and it would appear at the present writing that the Republicans are slated for the hottest primary fight that Seattle has ever before tackled. • As was said in last week's Repub lican, the mayorality contest has com pletely overshadowed everything else that will be voted upon in the com ing convention. The question is: are you for Paul or for Humes? And on this...

BROTHER IN BLACK Some one acquainted with the facts has written from Washington to the j effect that there at present employed ' in the Treasury Department of the! United States 210 colored persons and ' fhe compensation for these annually amount to $200,000. This is a splendid : showing for just one department. The same writer likewise reports 168 per sons or color working in the printing ' offices, who draw $115,600 annually. The State Department is likewise represented with persons of color, and twenty-five of them are at work in that department and they receive an nually $22,500. In the consular, which is also a part of the State Department, eleven colored consuls are to be found, who draw annually $25,000. Probably the largest number of colored em ployes in any one department of the United States is that of the Post office Department throughout the country. In the department at Wash ington City there are thirty-four col ored employes who annually uraw $24,680. The War Departmen...

The SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. VIII, NO. 39 Nomination is Godwin's The results of the Democratic pri maries last Tuesday evening show that J. W. Godwin, who has been previous ly announced as the leading candidate for the nomination of mayor, was suc cessful even beyond his most sanguine expectation. Mr. Godwin swept the primaries like a cyclone, and it is con servatively estimated that there will not be to exceed eighteen delegates in the convention against him. The Republican wishes to announce right here that J. W. Godwin, who is one of Seattle's leading and most in fluential business men, is going to make one of the hardest fights for mayor that any Democratic nominee has ever done in Seattle, and if he is not crowned with the same success as was J. T. Ronald some years ago, it will be because his Republican oppon ent will be more popular than he, and this is aying a good deal. The man who has been as successful in business enterprises as has been J. W. Godwin would certainly make a...

During a debate in the Lower House Congressman Wheel er of Kentucky scored the American people for trying to play the flunky act with Prince Henry, who is now on the high seas headed for New York, and who will reach that city, unless some mishap overtakes him, Saturday. Mr. Wheeler observed that thousands of dollars were being ap propriated by the American people for the entertainment of this Dutch prince and he thought it a radical departure from the good old democratic principle of George and Martha Washington— the corner-stone of personal liberty on which this government was founded.

LOCAL AND PERSONAL (This column is under the supervision of J. H. Ryan.) Optical work a specialty at Goldman's, 901 Second avenue, Burke Block. The past week has been an eventful one in the history of Seattle and its Afro-American citizens. A few weeks ago J. F. Cragnell, A. R. Black, W. H. Henderson and others decided to or ganize a social club. Thirty-five invi tations were issued to various persons to meet at the Hotel Butler. Twenty three men responded to the call, a re markable showing. After the object of the meeting was stated a disposi tion was shown to make it a business organization instead of social, but as the call was made for a social club the following officers were elected: J. F. Cragwell, president; Sol Hall, secre tary; George W. Turner, treasurer; committee on constitution and laws, J. H. Ryan, I. F. Norris, George Ride out, A. R. Black, Jas. Coombs. Imme diately after adjourning a back fire started in favor of a business club and it is safe to say now that the so...

... Sketch of Republican Nominees... JOHN RIPLINGER. The Republican convention could not have nominated a man in the city of Seattle who stands higher in the pub lic's opinion than John Riplinger. Mr. Riplinger was born October 12th, 1864, in Hastings, Minnesota, and spent his boyhood as well as early manhood in that state. At the age of 22 he en gaged in the newspaper business at Hastings, his native town, by purchas ing the "Hastings Union," a weekly paper of that city. He continued in that business unutil 1889, when, en ac count of failure of health, he sold out the paper and came to the state of Washington to permanently reside. He first cast his lot in Ska?it ccunty, near La Conner, where he purchased a home and went into the real estate busi ness. Later he came to Seattle, and on account o his splendid clerical abili ties he was given a temporary situa tion to check up the tax roll under Byron Phelps, who was at that time county treasurer. After completing this special line of...

China is a wonderfully rich country and there are many opportunities for business men to make some quick money. Americans are flocking to China in large numbers and are rapidly getting a corner on the Chinese trade. The Germans are proving a close second to the Americans with England hold ing third place. No, the Chinese exclu sion act, I do not believe, will jeo pardize our commercial supremacy in that country, as patriotism is un known among the Chinese. They are looking for the dollar and the Amer icans are giving them that and that is all they care for." « Already extensive preparations are being made in this city for the Nome trade during the open season, and it is expected by those most interested in it that this season will be one of the heaviest...

RELIGIOUS. The individual communion cup idea is making some progress in this coun . try, as is shown from a report on the stfbject covering the year 1900. Dur ing th« y«ar 732 churches in th« Unit ed States, mostly Baptists, Congrega tional and Presbyterian, adopted the individual cup for communion, but not withstanding this the progress along that line is rather slow, for there are at present in this country 187,000 dif ferent churches and at the rate of 732 a year it would take a long time to make any change from the old way. The late census of the Russian em pire gives the number of religious sec tarians in that country as 173,738 souls, but the actual number of per sons who are religionists in some form or other are probably twice that num ber. Even this latter figure makes the percentage very low so far as Chris tianity and the general citizenship are concerned.

The SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. VIII, NO. 42 POLITICAL POT PIE. The voters of this city from the fol lowing paragraphs and excerpts taken from many of the leading weekly jour nals of this state, bearing on the late municipal election in Seattle, will read with much interest the various com ments that these papers have made on the same. The entire journalistic fraternity of this state recognize in Seattle and King county the main spring of the Republican party of this state, and naturally the editors are much interested in its political battles, inasmuch as the editors further realize i that, "as goes King county, so goes [ the state." While many of the quota- ; tions are factional in their make-up, I nevertheless they offer salient and j effective lessons, which the voters of i this city would do well to take into j consideration in the future.
