EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS. Write it 1920. Have you been robbed yet.' If not, why not .' Human life is the cheapest thing in Seattle just now. Had booze got its toll of dead Christmas, but. they would have it. Of course the air is free, but it costs a lot of money 1o warm it up. The question is, have all the presidential hooins taken to the Wood for cover? Despite the fact the editor hereof is past sixty he has no objections to being thoroughly leap yea red. As long as booze is $24 per quart there will be less whiskey drunk, your taste for the same to the contrary notwithstanding. If" it be true that Europe is starving the profiteers of this country doubtless feel that things continue to come their way. Chief Warren is calling for help to curb the criminals.

IN THE POLITICAL WHIRL. With a municipal election in Seattle al ready on, a presidential nomination conven tion following soon thereafter and a state campaign for state and county nominations accompanying the whole, the political game in the state of Washington, the most of the present year will be a more or less fasci nating one. The tight for the mayorship of Seattle already gives much evidence of be ing a hot number, which may enter into the national and state campaigns, though the gubernatorial aspirants will hardly show any preference for the success of any one of the various aspirants for the Seattle mayoralty. Washington has a presidential aspirant who, in all political probability, will receive the united support of all factions and a Poindexter delegation will go to Chi cago to the Republican National Convention. Tacoma too will hold a municipal "lection in the earaly spring and that also will at tract more or less political attention, as Tacoma, just now, is the political ...

THE PASSING THRONG. "The Elks' smoker last week was a splendid success and those present greatly enjoyed the occasion," said B. F. Tutt one day this week. "Seven persons applied for membership and others are favorably con sidering joining the lodge. Plans are now on foot to buy and build, which will be done unless the members reach the con clusion that the price of material is pro hibitive." This is perhaps the strongest secret society, from a financial stand point among the colored citizens of Seattle, and it is now in a thriving condition. * * * "I have just returned from Washing ton City," said John E. Ballaine, "where I have been doing what I could toward getting the Alaska railroad legislation ship shaped." In all my experience I do not believe I have ever met a situation as bad ly mudled as is the government railroad legislation in Alaska. Between the grafters, the idealists and the ignoranmouses the prospects of building the road seems al most forlorn. The present administra ...

This is a Christian age and this is a Christian country and it raises millions of dollars annually to promote Christinity not only at home, but in every land and coun try where humanity is oppressed and yet right here in this liberty loving and peace abiding United States of America eighty colored men, women and children were lynched last year and in a majority of the cases the most brutal forms of sabotage were practiced upon the unfortunates. The world now knows those colored unfortu nates were not lynched for attacking white women, but for offences, in many instances, that would not have drawn a penitentiary sentence in any part of our coutry except the South and not even there unless the accused was a colored person.

ALL ABOUT YOU The supreme court of Colorado has de cided that a white man running a shoe shining parlor violates the civil rights law, if he refuses to shine a colored man's shoes. Rabbi Emil G. Hirch when questioned as to his views on race segregation, replied, "From my point of view we are all alike. Colored people «ire just as good as whites. I would rather have a good black neighbor than a poor white one." To the everlasting credit of the governor of North Carolina he promises to bring to justice the white men who lynched a col ored man of recent date. He further promises to make the state too hot for future lynching parties. With a capitalization of $500,000 the Cit izens Trust Company of Atlanta, Ga., threw open its doors for business a few days ag-o.

drawing-room and to play for friends—sur passes in real worth the salon music of any other country. Today, none would think of giving a vocal recital in which American songs did not fig ure. Hut there was a time when celebrated singers evaded American songs on the spec ious plea that English was unsingable. Madame Patti, in answer to the direct question, "Is English a good language to sing?" answered me, "English is not a good language to sing only to those who do not know how to sing it." In her glorious days I have seen an audi ence of thousands bend forward in breath less silence as she sang, "Home, Sweet Home;" the softest notes of that supreme mezzo voice of hers carried each distinctly enunciated word lingeringly, sympatheti cally, with a ravishing beauty of tone alive with tenderness and meaning. Nevertheless, in past years, not so very far away, concert singers, both eminent and aspirant, a generous proportion of them American ones at that, declared persistently that English...

ABOUT THE MAYORSHIP If C.

From the very inception of the Seattle mu nicipality pwning the street car system within her gates Mr. Fitzgerald has been its constant and consistent friend, not its friend in order to kill it, hut its friend for its everlasting success. lie is still its friend and both he and his appointees are continuing to make it a success, and do so without raising the fare to the patrons of the system. While Tacoma, Spokane and Portland street car systems, and even the privately owned system of Seattle, have all raised their street car fares to six, seven and eight cents, on the Seattle mu nicipal street car system you can still ride for a five-cent fare and be transferred on that one fare, and this is due to the fact that Mayor Fitzgerald and his appointees have stubbor...

THE PASSING THRONG In my last issue I said to you, "my son had gone wrong," and at the time I wrote the article, I thought as much, and to the extent of being in bad company, that state ment still holds true, but my boy actually participated in no wrong doing. He did drive two men to the scene of a hold up in my car because he was not aware of either their destination or determination and he did so because he was paid the price for the tirp. The city and county authorities gave his ease a thorough investigation and, aside from being indiscrete, he was exonerated and sent home. It has been said, "your sins will find you out," and that seems to be a fact, but when my boy's former teach ers both in the grammar grades and in the high school read of his connection with the hold up story, to the number of ten went to the juvenile court of their own accord and vouched for him so vehemently that it left nothing for his parents' to do, but keep still, which they did, and I concluded to mysel...
