If Matt Starwich is not the next sheriff of King county it will be no fault of his nor of his hundreds of friends. He has been for the past eighteen years the crimi nal deputy in the sheriff's office under all comers. Once on a time he sought the of fice and yet the man, who defeated him, continued him as deputy under him. Matt stands ace high and I think he is going to put up some fight for the nomination.

Hereafter all non-whites (Negroes, Jap anese, Filipinos, etc.), will be admitted on the same footing with whites.

THE PASSING THRONG Much has been said recently about the cabarets operated by colored men in this city. all of which I have read with varying inter esi. How good or bad the cabarets operated by colored men are or may be, I do not know. Whether cabarets operated by col ored men arc any nearer being vice-rendez vous than those operated by white men is likewise unknown to me, as T have never visited a cabaret operated by any one with the view of being entertained, and so far as cabarets and their modes of entertaining are concerned I am "innocence abroad." But vvhai struck me as rather peculiar in the Star's expose of a colored cabaret on Jack son Street was the hopelessness of the white man or woman, who entered therein. Such persons immediately became bewitched by the satanic arts of the black entertainers, and such white immediately became unable to leave the place, and if they did happen to get away, they are unable to keep from re turning. Wonderful. Then again, I read in the Star...

convention in the Woods where big inter ests could get the goods. That's Bill Whit ney and Jay Kellogg to a tee. who got the stuff but claim it was for Lee, and thus such pesky politicians as these are bent on "weighing out the political cheese, but poli ticians have begun to say, "damn that little squalking, squirming Jay, and quite to hell with Whitney Bill as he's a nasty little pill; and fog horn Walker is a false alarm and can do us no great amount of harm." Not soon again will this pesky pair throw consternation in a Republican fair, and men of brains will say amen for having squelched such selfish men. JOURNALISTIC COMMENT The advent of the women of the race into politics is thus greeted by the Birmingham, Ala., Reporter: "A presidential campaign is impending. The women are to have a first place in de termining not only issues but presidential possibilities as well. Already the women have shown their interest in these matters by giv ing a strong impetus to the Leonard Wood ca...

JUDGE LYNCH AND GEORGIA (From i.lm Jam Jems, Feb., 1920) .hulge Lynch in the year 1919 held his court in sixteen slates in the U. S. A. His jurisdiction is very largely Southern. He siit 21 limes in Georgia,. 12 times in Ar kansas. 12 times in Mississippi, 7 time in Alabama, 7 times in Louisiana, 5 times in Florida. 4 times in Texas, 3 times in North Carolina, once in South Carolina, one in Tennessee, twice in Missouri, twice in West Virginia, twice in Colorado, once in Wash ington, once in Kansas and once in Ne braska. Judge Lynch executed 82 human beings in the T. S. A. in 1919, as against 64 in Tins, proving that his business is on the increase by about thirty per cent. He still prefers "dark meat" on his menu, for 75 were Negroes and 7 were whites. He pre fers males to females for 81 were males and one was a female. Kape or attempted rape accounts for 19 —not one-fourth of the num ber—and down goes the old fetich that only rapists or attempted rapists are lynched. Fire roasted 7...

THE PASSING THRONG L;ist week the cirrus was in town and according to a custom, which has prevailed since the mind of man runneth not to the contrary, everybody and his brothers and sisters were lined up on the street to see the parade, no different, mind you, than the circus parades that Noah drove into the ark. The waiting throngs stood with out conmienl as the various features of the circus passed along just as stoically silenl as the gaping crowds. Owinfr to the long drawn out condition of the parade, the crowd was a bit uncertain as to the finality of the whole. I too was a bit in doubt as to when to quit my watchful wait ing post, but was completely relieved of that embarrassment when a white woman gathered her armful of children about her with "come darlings that's all, for there comes the niggers." The colored band was about passing and what she said was quite correct. And then 1 set myself to thinking and 1 remembered that in all parades in which colored folks participated ...

white «ui(l Xegro races in the United States. This is not because there is any special love for the Negro on the pnrt of the groups which compose these conventions, but be en use it is impossible for them to attain the ends and objects at which they are aim ing unless these fundamental rights of the Negro are granted to him. In another number the editor speaks for them in the same vein: We do not depend upon professions of friendship or flowery promises, but only intelligent self-interest. The position of white labor is already changing rapidly in iis relation to Negro labor, not because white labor likes Negro labor any better, hut because il realizes that the only way white labor pan raise its standing of liv ing is to raise the standard of living of its competitors. This sound position will be taken by white labor as rapidly as it be comes more intelligent and class conscious. Our political philosophy is Socialism, not State Socialism. For more than two years. now. it has Functio...

However, the World War, which disturbed everything else, disturbed also the Negro. Immigration from Europe ceased, former immigrants returned, and at the close of the war America was short three million im migrant laborers. Northern employers were troubled by shortage of labor and high wage demands, and looked toward the South for a possible labor supply. They sent representatives South to find many Negroes whose earnings were small, due to the plant-destroying boll weevil and to consequent unemployment of cotton acreage. The...

MONEY MAD The people all seem money mad, they wildly play the name; to gain another shin ing scad is each one's highest aim. Myself, J do not kick at cash, I like my share of mon; I do not say that coin is trash, or dross that we should shun. I make no pious rigmarole with halo on my brow; I like to have a little roll with which to choke a cow. But there are other wholesome joys than gathering in the dough; and I feel sorry for the boys who this much do not know; who pass up every kind of fun, to gain another wheel, another slice of germ-proof mon, to put in vaults of steel. I let not earning interfere with burning gasoline, when comes the springtime of the year, the woods and fields are green. Then in my car I jaunt abroad along the dusty road, and not to double up my wad would I compose an ode. The buyers of such rhythmic junk exclaim, "Produce your lyre, and we will pay a silver plunk for anthem full of fire." And I remark, "The day is fine, the roads are good, I ween; there'll b...

Hon. Claude C. Ramsay Four years ago there was a spontaneous outburst among all classes of citizens of Se attle for some man of real business ability to go on the board of county commission ers, who would take hold of the work of the board with an eye single to the business interest of the community rather than the political interests of a selfish few, as had the office been conducted by the most of those who had held it in the past. That feeling would not down in spite of the wholesale political juglary that was being constantly worked by ambitious political office seekers, and the advocates of the idea began to cast about for a Moses, which re sulted in the almost unanimous choice of Claude C. Ramsay, one of Seattle's heaviest taxpayers and most prominent business men. Under the circumstances Mr. Ramsay made a sacrifice of his business interests and agreed to undertake the work. It is need less to say that he was overwhelmingly nominated and elected; and after being in ducted into...
