BRIEF REVIEW OF PASSING EVENTS Modern Utility of a Standing Army. In past ages armies stood for war, and standing armies were maintained by a nation to make war upon another people, or to defend itself from others who were liable to make war upon it. In later years a standing army has been kept by most governments as a harbinger of peace. The United States government has never maintained more than the nucleus for an army during times of peace, putting her dependance upon volunteers, citizen soldiers, when need was for them. The wisdom of this is doubted by no one, but occasionally one is found who disbelieves in the utility of the nucleus, the small standing army in time of peace; but the following from an exchange will show that at last valuable occupation has been found for our army, in time of peace, and with these to its credit and the further fact that it is as ready to wage war on unfavorable conditions as upon a human foe, all objections should be henceforth withdrawn: "The U...

The SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. X. NO. 10 POLITICAL POTPIE Apropose the Republican's last week's Pot-Pie ar ticle bearing on Gov. Mcßride's intention of controll ing the next state convention in order to strengthen himself in the second state convention, the Union com ments as follows: It is reported that Governor Mcßride will endeavor to control the next state convention, which will be held simply for the purpose of electing delegates to the Republican national convention. The governor, it is said, desires to make a showing of strength in view of the fact that in the next following convention he will have a fight on his hands to secure a nomina- " tion for his present office. Whether he will control this first convention will be determined in the future, but if it is to be considered as a Mcßride or anti- Mcßride contest it will put a new aspect on the situa tion. It will simply bring on the main fight a little earlier, and will stimulate the political feeling in the state to a boiling...

REALM OF RELIGION Dead Yet Speaking. Dead men win many battles. America has been often led to victory by Washington since he died. The words, the example, and influence of Lincoln de cide in questions and struggles which we face today. In our own lives there is some one whose memory enables us to win a struggle against temptation, to continue in a battle against a wrong. And our dead self, our dead past, rises often to make a decision or settle a conflict that the present requires. In an old English ballad the poet sings of the way in which youth moulds age, and the past decides the present: "I saw a dead man win a fight, I think that man was I." What we have been helps us or hinders us in what we are or in what we want to be. Let us watch then what enters into our past, for it may be always present. It may be present after we are passed away from earth. Let us see in what we do the threefold significance —in that we do it, in that it will always be done, in that it will always be a...

BRIEF REVIEW OF PASSING EVENTS As the Review Man Views It. The editor of the Review of Reviews takes an opti mistic view of the race question that is refreshing, and at the same time advances some ideas out of the or dinary ; and ideas that doubtless will not be accepted by every one. He says: ''There have been a good many exhibitions of race friction of late, and these will doubtless occur from time to time in the future. Human nature will have to improve a good deal before they are totally done away with. But race conditions in the South are growing beter rather than worse, and those who deny ; this statement are not able to see things in their true perspective. While a large proportion of the Negroes in the United States are doubtless descended from people brought from Africa as slaves prior to the legal abolition of the slave trade, early in the nineteenth century, it is true, nevertheless, that the slave trade nourished on a large scale up to the very eve of the Civil War, and ...

TROUBLE IN ZION. Another disturbance is now on among the members of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church of this city and as a result the organization under the pas torate of Rev. F. T. Walker, who re cently took charge of the work, suc ceeding Rev. J. Gordon McPherson, has withdrawn the right hand of fel lowship from Mr. McPherson. Trouble has been brewing in the church for some months, but it was thought that it had all blown over when McPher son resigned and was subsequently elected superintendent of missions for the northwest, but at a call meeting last Wednesday the old sore broke out again and now the Mt. Zion Church and Rev. McPherson are divided by a great gulf. There are not to exceed a dozen members of the church and yet they seem to always be in a peck of trouble over church affairs. There was so much trouble among the mem bers from time to time that a split in the church occurred some months ago which resulted in the starting of a new organization, which is known as the Mt. Moria...

Uhe SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. X. NO. 11 POLITICAL POTPIE "If Governor Mcßride is not a gone goose, politi cally speaking, then I am very much mistaken," said a prominent politician from the Northwest one day this week and, who, by the way, is more or less friend ly with the governor. "I am of the opinion that he will not only lose the bulk of the Northwest in the next state convention, but it begins to look as though he stands a splendid show of losing his home county, and I feel absolutely certain he will if he insists on Skagit county endorsing him for governor and further insists in it permitting him to send an anti-railroad commis sion delegation to the state convention and to have such men nominated for the legislative position as are pledged to vote for the railroad commission measure. If, I repeat, he insists on all those things, he will have the d n's fight on his hands that he ever ran up against, and, in my opinion, he will lose his own coun ty by a two to one vote.

THE SEATTLE SPIRIT In opening a department*in this paper, of what we are pleased to term the "Seattle Spirit," it is well first to define what is meant by this expression that is known and recognized all over the country as a dis tinct characteristic of this city: It is simply a local designation, in the language of the realm, of that spirit of enterprise, push and get-there-a-tive-ness that has pervaded this whole Northwest coast since it was linked, by bands of steel, to the older, the Eastern, portion of our common heritage; and since the flower of the homes of that Eastern land, the brightest and best of its sons and daughters, followed the advice of Horace Greeley and sought the shores of the sundown 1 sea, by whose placid waters, to win for themselves fame and fortune. It is therefore not a distinct Seattle characteristic. That Seattle has it in a larger meas ure than other localities and has personified it, and nailed it at the masthead of its ambition, is due to a fortunate ...

houses to convince the deputies that they possessed very little property and that of small value, but the city members of the board of equalization evidently have something up their sleeve. It is quite important just now that the property valuation be as high as possible, and that desire coupled wih a recognition of the fact that all property should bear its just burden of taxation, is interfering with the rest of certain poor capitalists. It seems useless to theorize or moralize on the matter of taxation, but how much better it would be if the valuations, all along the line, could be doubled; when, as there is only so much to be raised, the levy could be cut in two; so when asked as to amount of the tax levy it could be said nineteen mills, instead of thirty-eight, as now. What a different ef fect it would have upon prospective investors. An application of the true Seattle spirit would demand that this be done. As there can be no objection to such a change why is it not done ? The ...

BRIEF REVIEW OF PASSING EVENTS It is such an unusual thing for officers of the law to do the things for which they were elected—in some parts of the country —that the spectacle of a man de parting from the well-beaten path of failing to see or to prosecute violations of the law, and possessed of the real old-fashioned notions that laws were made to be enforced, then to get in and enforce them, has brought Public Prosecutor Folk, of Missouri, into the lime light of publicity in an unusual degree. All hail to the man who has the courage to regard his oath of office as binding, but what a parody on common hon esty, that when one does only as he should do, that he is thus diferentiated from his fellows. As no one is en titled to especial credit for doing only his duty, all this praise for Mr. Folk is in a measure unmerited, ex cept as it appears in contrast to the usual order of re fusing or neglecting to do the duty assigned. Folk is not so much entitled to praise as others are to cond...
