Under the present system, the leaders in each of the factions named above, exercise more or less pol!_tical boss control. In other words they are small political bosses of the same type as the old war& heeler of by gone days but their methods of operation while not quite so crude, are a great deal more selfish. Unlike the old ward heeler they do not at any stage of the game take into consid;eration, the welfare of either party or state. The old heeler did to a certai.n extent. Modification of the direct primary would spell the death knell of these blocs which are becoming legislative manipulators. In fact some of them can be labeled legislative blackmailers as they seek to control legislation through threats of reprisals, and, in some instances do. It i.s not surprising that every pos- sible effort is being put forth at this time, 18 months in advance of the next primary election, by the leaders of these blocs to influence and force a trend of public opinion to support only those candidates they desire elected, and in this movement, follow- ing the age-old policy of such politk- cal leadership, anything goes, facts are disregarded entirely as is the truth. It was not surprising that shortly after the legislature adjourned the Anti-Saloon league started propagand- ing against the leadership of that ses- sion. This is being carried on and today this bloc has come into the open with the avowed statement that it in- tends to see that every public office to be filled a year from next Novem- ber will find an Anti-Saloon league candidate filed. In other words, this bloc, so vigorously opposing any pro- posed modification of the direct pri- mary, inte,nds to attempt to dictate to the republican party a the dominant fans were in ev-dence and came away to well satisfi.ed with the exhibition put the effect that Mrs. Preston will shy up by the local ball tossers. her bonnet into the congressional race with a fair chance of walking off with the prize. The senatorial situation i's one which is stirring up more idle gossip and rumors in political circles than any other matter at the present time. The gubernatorial rumpus with plenty of candidates already hovering around the ring and the senatori.al contest taken together provide the vehicles for .s_tarting Dame Rumor out around the grape vine routes. The latest from this source is a i-e- ort that Governor Roland H. Hartley is not at all unwilling to relinauish the gubernatorial seat in excngc for .one in the United States senate and] might be found with his shinning stove pipe hat in the latter ring before the campaign is fairly under way, Members of the revision committee from the legislature have announced that the nrogram of havin the sta- tutes of the +state examined and un- used dead letter laws eliminated will be carried on despiCe the loss of the funds appropriated for this purpose. This rogram started at the 1925 regular session is now being urged by the National Association of Manu- facturers upon every legislature in the nation as a step towards better government. In this state the program has held from its inception the indorsement of the organized busness interests such as the federated industries through its legislative council and is now being advanced in the sister states of Wash2 ington by the organized business and industrial leaders. .+-+,F,4,-4,-++*++ -,k-+-o, Next Sunday Mukilteo visits Mon- roe for a return game.
