A Ii Good Citizens Honor Nation's Flag Anarchists and Red Rag Representa- tives are not Wanted The Pacific Coast is going through the throes of an exhibition of lack of patriotism and of mental disorder, the participants haveing the shame and de- rision of every decent citizen. Recent- ly an officer in the state socialistic or- ganization was severely criticised by reason of making remarks disparaging tm tlag of the nation. Such curs are hardly countenanced, even among their fellows. Last week in Seattle a number of foreigners were denied naturalization by Judge Frater because their spokes- man, a man by the name of Bonan, said that he would stand by his labor union in preference to the government of the United States. "I want it understood now and forever that the man who would supplant the Stars and Stripes with the red flag or any other flag need not expect to be a citizen," said tke judge. His remarks will be honored Ltroughout the length and breadth of the land. Early in the month a bunch of 100 Industrial Workers of the World, al- most all of whom admitted they were anarchists, knelt and kissed the Ameri- can flag at dawn near San Onofre, a small settlement near the Orange coun- ty boundary line. The ceremony which was most unwil- lingly performed, was witnessed by 45 deputy constables and a large body of armed citizens of San Diego. The men composed a party that left Santa Ann on a freight train. The deputies and armed citizens had gone out in automo- biles to drive them back. The indus- t ial workers were stopped at San Ono- fre and detained until the following morning. After the flag kissing, the industrial workers were divided into squads of five and placed in command of details of deputies. Then the march to the line was started and the procession moved to the tune of "The Star Spangled Banner" in which the work- ers were compelled to make at least a show of joining. At the Orange coun- ty line the men were started north .on the railway track. A few more lessons of a similar na- ture will go a long way towards stamp- ing out' the disaffections of soap-box orators and quelling the anarchistical tendencies of malcontents who are too lazy or inefficiept to work themselves and endeavor to prey on the weaknes- ses of men in the honest laborer class.

Wife of Ohio's Executive Tries To Reform a Pardoned Convict Copyright by American Press Association. 1911. a Christmas glft Rufus Burcham. a life prisoner in the state peniten- tiary, received a pardon at the hands of Governor Judson Harmon of Ohio. It was granted, however, only after the mat (who had been convicted of complicity in a murder in which he was afterward shown to have had no part) had promised Mrs. Harmon that he would abstain from strong drink and lead an upright life. Mrs. Harmon, who was the talented daughter of an Ohio physician, takes a keen interest in her husband's work and particularly in the applications for executive clemency that come to him. Her social life nas been a busy one, both In Cincinnati and in Washington. where she and her daughters wer well known and popular figures. The pho- tograph here reproduced shows her with a favorite niece Waglner & Wilson Mill to Resume Operations Shortly Business Revival in Monroe and Vicinity Marked Improvement Will Be Noticed in a Few Weeks The sale reported of the Wagner & Wilson holdings has fallen through and the mill will be started inside of the next two or three weeks by the Wagner & Wilson Co. Mr. George Wagner gave out this information this week, stating that a crew would be put to work at once making some changes in conveyors and getting the mill ready preparatory to starting again wthin a very short time. The towns people gen- erally are very pleased to know that the Wagners are not going to leave Monroe and the news of the mill soon starting will be hailed with pleasure by e "cry resident who has realized the val- ue of the mill operation to the commun- ity during the long close-down of the past ten months. Coincident with the starting of the big mill, the news is given out that the High Rock camp will also be starting within a very few week and also infor- mation is received that the Sultan Log- ging Co. camps will be moved this way to the head of the new Sultan road," making Monroe the more logical scene of operations. After a period of having all the camps in this vicinity absolutely shut down for a long time the re-awakening of lumber activity will mean everything to the community in a local trade way. Monroe has suffered more, especially Object to Strong Medicines . Many people object to taking the strong medicines usually prescribed by physicians for rheumatism. There is no need of internal treatment is case of muscular or chronic rheumatism, and more than nine cases out of every ten cases of the disease are of one or of the other of these varieties. When there is no fever and little (if any) swelling, you may know that it is only necessary to apply Chamberlain's Lini- ment freely to get quick relief. it. For sale by all dealers. by comparison with the tremendous ac- tivity here for a couple of years at the time of the rail road building and big improvement work, than any other smaller towns of the Sound section and the retail business men have had to stand a big drop in business. But the end of the tight conditions is at hand and locally Miss Monroe will be able to hold up her head again in short order and tell the old spectre, "Hard Times," to get out. And now to get the paving started and get the little old town busy onc-e more forging towards the front. Up and doing, everybody, forget the grouch and let's work out some bigger things i than any that have yet been accom- : plished.

Monroe Furniture Co, Mmoe is Fawared for lhe Convention County Republicans are Generally Wil. ling to Come Here Precinct Committeeman E. T. Bas- com, representing the Commercial Club cmmittee, has received generally fav- orable answers to 100 letters mailed to members of the county central com- mitte and other prominent republicans inviting the holding of the republican county convention here. Nearly all as- sume that a convention will be held, in- stead of letting the committee name delegates to the county convention, and many, including such men as A. H. B. Jordan, express the belief that prima- ries should be held in naming the dele- gates to the county convention. The expression is made constantly that the delegates have the opportuni- ty of getting to Snohomish and Everett often but that many of them have never seen Monroe and will enjoy look- mg over the town and seeing the re- formatory, condenser and berry farm. To properly take care of Laving an invitation extended at the meeting of the County Central Committee on April the 27, a special meeting of tae Commercial club will be held Mon- day evening. It is proposed to provide a hall and auto conveyances to accom- m3date the delegates in taking in the reformatory and other points of inter- est and wdl give Monroe another chance to make good in the matter on enter- tainment. A good attendance should be out at the meeting. The county convention this year will unquestionably be a large one. There is a lot of interest over the naming of delegates to the state convention and Taft, Roosevelt and LaFollette parti- zms will be out in force. It will be a bTg gathering of the county politicians and will mean a lot to the town to have held here. With the Milwaukee schedule in force, there can be no ob- jection raised on the score of any dele- gates from any portion of the county not being able to get here easily, and the early action of the Commercial club in getting busy with its invitation should result in getting the convention. Nearly all the Everett men heard from favor Monroe straight out anl also o:her Republicans from the most dis- tant part of the county. Good Discussion on Issuing Road Bonds Association Perfected at Snohomish to Consider Matter About fifty delegates from granges and commercial organizations from all parts of the county were present Sat- urday in Snohomish to discuss the mat- ter of the road-building proposition and brought about the organization of the Snohomish County Road and Improve- ment association. The session was a long one and the major portion of the time was devoted to wrangling over the purpose of the organization of the association and con- tinual criticism of the present methods of disposing of road funds and the chance of getting a proper expenditure of the money to be raised by the bend Issue. The meeting was called to discuss the advisability of issuing the bonds and in the perfection of a permanent organ- ization, there was considerable pro- test against the adoption of a resolution recommending the adoption of a suf- ficient method by which a good system of county roads could be built. The resolution was adopted by more than a two-thirds vote, committing the asso- ciation to a policy undoubtedly in favor , of building a good system of roada. This was generally the sentiment of most of the delegates present, provided a good plan could be devised whereby all sections of the county could be ben- efitted and the roads built in such a way as to get good returns for the in- vestment. T. D. Davis, of Marysville, was elect- ed president and C. J. Stuart secretary, and committees were named to look in- to the matter of a schedule of oMa to be built and the kind. Another meet- ing will be held in a few weeks at F_zl- monde and later, other meetings in dif- ferent portions of the county to develop and keep up interest in the bonding question until the election. There was a considerable delegation present from Monroe including the fol- lowing: Mentors. P. H. Calligan, T. N. Bennett, D. P. Funk, E. J. Stevens, J. C. Falconer, H. D. Matthews, H. Mer- cer, E. Hazeiton, C. J. Smart and J. Winston,
