ST. JOHN'S DAY, JUNE 24 i l>y EtUgene Griffin) Among tin 1 ancients every Temple, Altar, statue or sacred place was dedicated to some divinity. The Romihiim, during the Republic, confided Iliis duly to their consuls, censors or other chief magistrates, and afterward to Em perors. According to the Paripian law, the dedi cation must have been authorized by a de cree of the Senate mid the people and the (•onsen! of the College Augurs. The ceremony consisted of surounding the Temple or object to be dedicated with gar lands of flowers, while the vestal virgins poured on the exterior of Temple lustral water. The dedication was completed by a formu la of words uttered by the pontiff and the immolation of the victim, whose entrails were placed upon an altar of lurf. The dedication of the Temple whs always a festival For the people and was annually celebrated.

THE PASSING THRONG If there be any difference between the av erage intelligence of an audience made up of colored women in the Northwest and one made up of while women, then the late con vent ion of the Federation of Colored Wo men's Clubs of Washington and jurisdiction gave no evidence of such a fact. J sat through one of its sessions and J heard col ored women speak, sing and perform on musical instruments and from an educational as well as artistieal stand point, if only the sounds from that hall could have reached the most critical critic, it would have been im possible for s;iid critic to have told from such sounds whether said audience was made up of white or colored persons. The annual address of Mrs. Maps was gramatieaiiy, rhetorically and classically magnificent and I seriously doubt if it could be discounted by any while woman in this state, even though she be connected with some of the higher schools of learning. As a piano per former I doubt if the renditions of Mrs. X. ...

Joel F. Warren is a candidate for the Republican nomination of sheriff of King county and plans to make an aggressive campaign in order to secure said nomina tion, yea not only plans to do so, but verily has already begun to do so, and if he keeps up the pace that he has already set, the can didate who beats him will have to go some. Mr. Warren, it will be remembered, was the chief of police fired by Mayor Caldwell under circumstances that do not reflect well on the mayor, and while Warren as chief of police was already a very popular public official he became doubly so after his dismissal. He was chief of the police of Seattle for two and a half years and during that time served under four mayors. Prior to entering the city's service he had served the government in the IT. S. Mar shall's office ten years. TTe was for a time chief of the police of Nome and prior to that he served as chief of the police of Spo kane for a numbr of years. It can be said without fear of successful contr...

AN ESSAY ON MONEY It used to be thought by dreaming So cialists that money was all a mistake. They believed, like the old satirists, that there was a curse upon gold and silver, and that the use of them had corrupted men. Hence they had a way of advocating some money substitute, such as labor-checks, in the hope that men might no longer be dazzled into greed by the sight of the precious metals. The Socialists, it is only fair to say, had more method in their hatred of gold than had the satirists. The satirists hated gold merely because they pretended to themselves that it had destroyed the ancient simplicity of life. The Socialists were anx ious, for their part, to find a medium of exchange which would entitle a man to a fair equivalent for his labor, but which would have no value, if hoarded, as a means of more and more subjecting the la bor of other people to his private interest. Tt is possible to smile at the Utopian's dream of saving the world by forbidding the saving of money....

harmony we shall succeed, but dissension insures delay and invites disaster. Let me remind you first that the question before us is not a Negro question but a white man's question. The Negroes did not come to America of their own free will, but were captured and brought here by white men. They were held by white men for centuries as slaves, ignorant and degraded, "with no lights which the white man was bound to accept." White men made ihem what they were when civil war waged by white men set them free. White men gave them the rights of citizens under our Con stitution, and save for a few years when under white leaders they exercised political power and gave you governments not worse than white men have given their fellow citizens in our great Northern cities, white men have made and now make the laws un der which they live, and white men enforce them. No colored man has sat for years in either house of Congress, few if any sit in the legislatures of our states, and in the Southern s...

Colored G. 0. P. Talkers Timed by Hour Glass By W. Jamieson Field in Tacoma Daily Times Representatives of the Washington State Colored Republican club met in conven tion .Monday afternoon and evening in the Odd Fellows' hall on Pacific avenue to organize anew and pledge renewed allegiance to the Republican cause. The average conception of a colored gathering is closely allied to the amusing themes of Oetavus Roy Cohen stories frequently appearing in the Saturday Evening Post, but that conception, in the writer's mind, has been entirely eradicated, and a new respect born. Pun there was a plenty of. Jokes and dialect was much in evidence, but under the surface ran a tremenduous unity of purpose—that of the Republican cause; and a sincere desire to further the cause intelligently. Distinguished speakers attended the banquet held during the evening and found that the colored man and woman was as keen, and in many cases more keen, of concept ion than some white members of political orga...

upon the white citizens of Tacoma who had so honored him, not from a colored politician's standpoint, but in almost the exact opposite. It will be noted that George B. Lamping, a candidate for governor, was quoted at length and favorably editorially commented thereon and, what more natural, as Lamping seems to be catering to the Bolshevist voters of this state for their unanimous support. The editor of Cayton's Weekly has in times gone by taken issue with George B. Lamping because he, Lamp ing, advocated, if not in so many words, in principle, the segregation of the white and colored citizens of this country. Prior to his election as auditor of King county, he entered into a gentlemean's agreement with the late J. E. Hawkins of Seattle, to the ■effect, if you Hawkins will support my candidacy for county auditor in the con vention I will name your niece Miss Ida to a clerkship in my office, that is if I am nominated and elected.

POLITICAL POT PIE It w;is Joel F.

No other chief of the police of Seattle ever expressed the desire to have Colored men on the police force and in that respect Warren leads all the rest. While chief of the police, as was told you in last Saturday's issue, Warren was instrumental in having over one hundred overseas veterans placed on the police force and now it transpires he did more to have JOEL F.
