ADVERTISING RAT S ON APPLICATION Let the People Rule Political writers, in all ages, have averred that "the people" cannot rule themselves so well as they can be ruled by a paternal, monarchical or some other form of strongly centralized govern- ment. In many instances in history, this has actually proven to be a fact but it was in ages and conditions of so- ciety when the dissemination of intelli- gence in vrinted form was not avail- able. Today, in the United States, is exhib- ited the greatest democracy ever known to man--democracy in name, but until very recent years, hardly a democracy in fact by reason of the fact that the average citizen has not taken an intel- ligent interest in the affairs of his own government. But that condition is changing. The people have learned that under the system that has prevailed in municipal, state and national campaigns in the past, they have had really little to say about how they should actually be governed or what legislation should be enacted. If the people are determined to take the reigns of government into their own hands, as they are very clearly showing a determination to do, by the adoption of the initiative and referendum, the primary and other progressive meas- ures in many states, then why should anyone attempt to interferl and stem the tide of an awakening public con- science? The average intelligence of the indi- vidual in this country is good. The! average citizen is absolutely free and independent in thought and action. He is not hampered by any feudal obliga- tion nor controlled by priestly rule. He is simply a citizen and, as such, is a component part, himself, of the demo- cratic form of government which guar- antees to him the right of "life, liberty amt pursuit of happiness," so long as he does not become amenable to its laws. Of recent years the individual has felt that he has not altogether had "equal" rights. He hds studied the situation and has made up his mind that the reason has been his own indifference to the affairs of his government. He has seen the offices of his govern- ment, in every department men who sought them for their own selfish interests. He has seen every form of "big business" with its lobby working to secure legislation in its own behalf and favored ones usurping pow- er to themselves. He has found the fault lay wholly with himself and in ev- ery corner of the nation has arisen the movement to make the government more nearly popular. "The people" have been securing to themselves their rights and, with the first flush of victory, all that they do may not be wise. But in the light of the history of all the human race there is no man big enoUgh--no literature of social ethics nor governmental theory strong enough --to permit of the movement being de- cried. The era in the ages is a new one. There is nothing in the past which it can be judged. Never before have the people of any natiort had the means of: informing themselves on every line of thought, never have they had the op- pertunity of communing, one with the other, in every section of the country, a they have now through the medium "OWN IT" YOUR HOME 2 best 7-room cottages in this city, will sell on monthly payments of $20 per month or less. 1 4-room cottage, monthly pay- ments $10 or less. 1 7-room cottage, monthly pay- ments $12 or less. - 1 4-room cottage monthly pay- ments $9 or less.

They are in- telligently informed about everything that concerns them and in working to- gether to make the government a pure democracy they are doing something that will be regarded in future history as one of the greatest of all the great world-movements. Shall they be stopped or hindered? Whatever they want to do, they have the power to do. It is a government "for the people, by the people," and the sane average of the mass will in- sure that every action taken will be safe. We may not all think so now, but those who interpose objection will face the wheels of the Juggernaut. Outline Road Plan The editor of this paper at the" Sno- homish good roads meeting strongly urged the association to get busy in outlining the system of roads proposed for permanent improvement so that every citizen of the county could be shown just where the roads would be built and what benefit the bonding plan would be directly to him. In addition, he pointed out the necessity of getting some specific estimate of the cost of construction on each road so that in voting the bonds a proportionate amount could be apportioned out to be spent on each road and obviate the possibility of having contracts let for the completion of some portion of the system first that would exhaust the funds available and make it impossible to build all the roads in the first general plan. The taxpayers want to know what they will get for their money under the bonding system and they want to know that the expenditure of their money will be so safeguarded as to get a dol- lar's worth or road for every dollar spent. If the association formed will take hold of these matters in a business like way, it will be possible to furnish the information needed so as to satisfy every taxpayer and insure the passage of the bonds, but unless the details are all worked out in advance, it will be hard to get the votes of the people who stand now upon the fence. There is everything, from an econo- mic standpoint, to be said in favor of the bonds, but the people want to "be shown," and it must be the prime duty of the new association to see that they are. No business man in town should al- low a newspaper published in his town to go without his name and business be- ing mentioned somewhere in its columns, says an exchange. This applies to all kinds of business--general stores, dry goods, grocers, furniture dealers, man- ufacturing establishments, automobile dealers, mechanics, professional men-- in fact all classes of business men. This does not mean that you should have a whole or half or even a quarter of a page ad in every issue of the pa- per, but your name and business should be mentioned if you do not use more than a two-line space. A stranger picking up a newspaper should be able to tell just what business is represented in a town by looking at the business mentioned in the paper. This is the best possible town advertiser. The man who does not advertise his business does an injustice to himself and his town. He is the man who expects the newspaper to do the most free boosting for his town. The man who insists on sharing the business that comes to a town but refuses to advertise his busi- ness is not a valuable addition to any town. The life of any town depends upon the live, wide-awake and liberal advertising business men. Your advertising is to build your big- store--how soon, and how big you are to decide day by day.

Main street, Seattle Mercantile Team Wins ool at Index Obenhofer Brings in the Winning Run in the 14th Inning Index, the scene of many a great baseball gladiatorial contest that has been immortalized in the annals of the sport by the Lumberman-Poet H. J. Miller, witnessed a fourteen-inning game Sunday between the Mercantile Co. team and the Index players that is worthy of an epic. The game resulted 9 to 8 in favor cf the Monroeites, but the score tells nothing of the heart-anguishing strain of a contest that was an uphill pull from the first and where the Mercan- tile players were up against a proposi- tion that took every ounce of nerve and energy. It was a[real game of baseball. The inning when, after Mouroe got in two runs, in getting one of which Jimmi- cum made a magnificent exhibition of l base-stealing, the Index men found Burgett for a number of hits and drove in six runs. The game seemed ended, but no one reckoned on the staying power of the Mercantile players and their ability to face a hard situation. Scoring again and again in the third and fourth, they got ahead a score in the eighth, by running in three men, making the score 7 to 6, only to have the score tied by the Index team which also got a man around the bases after having five goose-eggs chalked np to their credit in the intervening innings. Nothing doing on either side in the ninth and tenth and a tally each in the eleventh still kept the game at a draw and made the welkin ring with the en- thusiastic shouts of hundreds of by- standers who knew they were seeing a fancy game of ball. The twelfth and thirteenth were also blanks and then Monroe got the win- score by innings shows that--and the ning run on a hard line drive by Oben- Index fans, who are real sports, got hofer.
