to the Republicans of the state at large for the further reason that King county will, as usual, begin the con test right at home. It is to be assumed the sena torial contest this year will be strictly between King and Pierce counties, unless Governor Mcßride should inject himself into the contest, which is unlikely in view of the fact that he is having all he can attend to to keep up the fight to retain his present position ■without seeking higher honors. From all indications at the present time Senator Foster will have the united support of Pierce county as it is understood State Senator E. S. Hamilton will not be a candidate and ■will support Mr. Foster. In King county, however, it will be very different. It will have an array of candidates both real and pos sible. Mr. Piles is now a candidate in every sense of the word. He is the first one to make an openavowal of his intentions, but it is always safe to assume that John L. Wilson is a candidate. He always is. E. C. Hughes, a we...

Tales of the Town Two rather modest looking ladies stood watching a passing sister who was clothed in the most up-to-date toggery as though some real thing was in sight and having a desire to know what could so attract the attention of the ladies, a glance was ventured at the passing lady, and this is what was seen, one hand pulling her skirts across her lower extremities as though those parts would drop off in case her grasp was relaxed, and at the same time so elevating the front of her skirts as to exhibit her leg up to her knee, which, by the way, was covered with a highly colored gaudy hose and with a garter that would have made a dashing appearance around the neck of the most fastidious young dude, and in that predicament strut ted up the street talking to a male companion like a windmill when her jaws were not working away on a wad of gum as though she was not almost exhibiting her nude form on the street. It is barely possible that the two ladies were wondering why she was n...

A new phase has been placed on the lynching question by Ne groes of a St. Louis suburb breaking into a jail in an effort to secure and lynch a Negro prisoner who had assaulted a colored woman. Rome is just now the center of a political stunt, compared with -which any American national or state maneuvering, or even the late Walla Walla municipal fight, was as a snuffed out glow worm compared to the dazzling brightness of the midday sun. This is the kind of weather that makes the average citizen seek the shady side of the street, and the summer girl in all her radiance is in full bloom. This, however, is the weather so long sighed for; but all things come to those who wait, and as we waited, because we had to, we are now gettin...

BRIEF REVIEW OF PASSING EVENTS There is a distinct rumble of discontent in the far East. Russia is persistently aggressive, and with one purpose, fixed and determined, to get all she thinks she wants, is causing Japan and other nations to fume a good deal. What the outcome will be is hard to tell, but it is about an even chance for a clash at arms, somewhere, by someone. The islands, great and small, connected with our Philippine possessions, are so numerous that Uncle Sam has not yet had time to round them all up and take account of stock. Recently he found Johnnie Bull had climbed up on some of them, lying near his Borneo monkey ranch, and was trying to claim them as his own, but Sammy says nit, and while he has lots of islands down that way he has none to spare, and is even talking of buying some more from France. A great lad that Uncle Sam is. Money Not All. It is recorded of Cornelius Vanderbilt that before he died he said to a friend: "I don't see what good it does me—all this...

To Irrigate Ancient Babylon and Chaldea. Sir William Willcocks, late Director General of Reservoirs, Egypt, and the designer of the great Assuan dam, has turned his attention to the project of reclaiming the wonderfully fertile valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, and proposes to make use of the canals and reservoirs which remain from an ancient civilization. This region was once known as the richest in the world, and its cities, Nineveh and Babylon, were the centers of a magnificent civiliza tion, built upon the great agricultural resources of the valleys in which they were situated. It is pointed out that although desolation now reigns over a large part of the area under consideration, yet the land has stead ily been gaining in fertility from the annual overflows of the rivers and from the fact that no extensive agri cultural operations have taken anything from the soil. With the Bagdad railway completed to form a method of transportation, and a rebuilding of old irrigation...

THE SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. X. NO. 8 POLITICAL POTPIE Rumor has it that Hon. Samuel Piles, who left for New York the next day after he announced his can didacy for the United States senate, is now in consult ation with L .S. J. Hunt, who, it is said, will furnish the sinews of war whereby Mr. Piles can see his way clear to make his fight for the senate. It will be re membered that when Mr. Hunt was here the last time settling up all his back bills, he in an interview in the Times declared that he strongly favored the elec tion of S. H. Piles to the senate to succeed Addison G. Foster. Since leaving Seattle everybody knows that Mr. Hunt has made a gigantic fortune, and when he has money he plays with politics like a girl does with her doll baby, and if he has made up his mind to again control the politics of this state by first elect ing Sam Piles to the senate there will be something doing in political circles before this time next year. Notwithstanding the popularity of Sam Piles, ...

, The Colfax Gazette says that "the issues of the next campaign will be named by Eastern Washington men and that the "double cross" which the farmers of this country received last session cannot be repeated again." This would seem to indicate that the Gaz ette's work in the last campaign was so coarse that it despaired of repeating it. We do not know of any one who did more "double crossing" in the last cam paign than the Colfax Gazette. It supported Mr. An keny, the avowed opponent of a commission bill, and in the same breath shrieked for a commission in the interest of the farmer. It permitted the passage of a resolution in the Whitman county convention instruct ing the legislative nominees to vote against any sena torial candidate who favored a commission, after hav ing moved heaven and earth to secure the nomination of candidates favorable to Air. Ankeny. And now it speaks up as innocent as a harlot at a christening and declares that Eastern Washington shall not be "double cross...

Frank took it as a joke, but his relatives in lowa took it serious and actually dreamed of seeing their darling son in congress from the Evergreen State.

They have really fallen over themselves to do him hi'nor. Alter all there is a hope that the matter of lynching will cor rect, itself. When the cost is counted in dead and wounded citi zens, as a result of the efforts to suppress the mobs, even the black-hearted beasts who instigate them may conclude that the price is too great. It is much to the credit of Seattle that the state officials are willing to take its entire issue of bonds for municipal lighting pur poses, $59Q,000 in all, at 3^ per cent, interest, and much to the credit of the state and its management, that it has the funds to take such a large block of bonds, besides ...

BRIEF REVIEW OF PASSING EVENTS Time for Interference. It seems to be about time for this government to depart from its policy of non interference with other nations and attach an amendment to its Monroe doc trine. Our policy has been not only not to interfere with the internal affairs of other nations on this con tinent, but to say that no foreign power shall inter fere in any way where they have no prior vested rights. It was in keeping with the true spirit of this idea that caused President McKinley to declare war against Spain in the interest of Cuba. While Spain had vested rights, yet because of misgovernment and inhuman practice she had forfeited those rights, and the United States, as the big power of the continent, for humanitarian reasons was justified in forcing Spain to release the island, and the results have fully war ranted the action. In the same spirit it is time for this government to step in and protect such of our South American neighbors as are unable to maintain ...

Queen Augusta, Seattle's monarch of the labor carnival, ex pressed a noble sentiment and made a wise statement when she said: "If I were really queen I would use my best endeavors to temper the feeling between capital and labor, so that there would never more be strife, disputes or misunderstandings. Do you know that I believe nearly all of the trouble between employer and employe is usually the result of each misunderstanding the position and desires of the other. If I were really queen long enough I be lieve that I could do much to harmonize the two contending fac tions." Seattle's labor unions, and Seattle's employers of labor, could well afford to unite and give her a life tenure of the position if she could do as she believes she might. Next year (1904) is leap year, the first for eight long years. Quite a number of old maids, maiden ladies, U. B.s, we mean, have been looking anxiously forward to it for some time. But poor old .Miss Democracy has already begun to take on a sad ...

Uhe SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. X. NO. 9 POLITICAL POTPIE A report comes from Tacoma to the effect that the political leaders in the Republican party in that city are up in arms against the candidacy of Samuel H. Piles for United States senator. The Pierce county contingent believes that Mr. Piles is being backed by .Mr. Farrell, who is the mouthpiece of James J. Hill, and that means the defeat of Senator Foster for re election. According to this grape-vine dispatch, Sen ator Hamilton, Ben Groscup and Walter Christian are are bitterly opposed to any railroad man supporting any one else except Foster, and if Air. Farrell gives his support to Mr. Piles, the Tacoma railroad push, headed by George Stevenson, will make some trouble in the next legislature. If this report can be believed there is a war on between the railroad pople of this state, which will end in the nomination and election of Governor Me Bride and some candidate for United States senator other than the ones that have alread...

AFROAMERICAN A Woman Honored. A colored woman in Richmond, Va., has been elect ed president of a new bank, which has just thrown open its doors for business. The dispatch announcing the fact declared the woman to be one highly respected by both the whites and the blacks of that community, she having taught school thereabouts for a number of years, and so conducted herself as to gain their ut most confidence. If more of the young colored men in the South would so shape their lives as to have the same simple yet substantial statement made about them they too would cither be elected president of a bank or master of a farm, and the one is just as hon orable as the other. The race problem would soon be solved if only a majority of the young colored people would make up their minds to be highly respected by both the whites and the blacks in the community in which they live. It is quite true that there are as many and perhaps more "cussed" whites as blacks, but that does not make your case...

<ssi Tales of the Town fc& The School Book Company wins. The supreme court has directed the superior court of Kins county to issue an injunction restraining County Superin tendent Hartranft from directing the use of Rand, Mc- Xally & Co.'s school books in higher grades than the state contract specifies, and thereby lessening the sale of the books. The decision is of great importance to the entire state, as well as King county, as it means the literal enforcement of school book contracts, re gardless of their merits. It means it is the duty of courts to guard the sacredness of contracts, regardless of whether they are good or bad. It is not for offi cials to exercise their judgment and say that a wiser contract might have been made; but it is their duty to enforce valid contracts as made by those lawfully authorized to make them. It is an application of the principle that law is law and no one has a right to alter it or to set it aside. The case arose from the fact that th...

A ship canal will be recom mended around the obstructions, as has been provided at the Cas cades. The estimated expense is from $8,000,000 to $12,000,000.
