Ind. Pone 105 -:- Sun. 511 The Good Record of a Safe President Big Achievements of the Administra- tion of President Taft A letter to the Portland Oregonian under date of August 14 asked: "What has Taft done, anyhow? You say all the time that he has been a good president and professes not to under- stand the general outcry against him. Well, tell us what he has done. SHOW ME." The Oregonian replied as follows: We print a summary of the achieve- ments of the Taft administration as they appear in a republican circular: He has effected arbitration treaties with Great Britain and France. He vetoed the Arizona statehood bill because of the recall of judges provi- sion. He has enforced the Sherman anti- trust law without fear or favor. He vetoed the democratic wool, cot- ton and free list bills as.unfair, unscien- tific and destructive of the republican i principle of protection. He abrogated the discriminating pass- port treaty with Russia. He established postal savings banks. He prevented railroads from putting rate increases into effect without ap- proval of the interstate commerce com- mission. He has rushed the Panama canal early to completion without hint of scandal. He has practically destroyed white slave traffic. He has signed the bill for admission of Arizona and New Mexico to state- hood. He has established the bureau of mines to safeguard lives of miners. He has extended our foreign markets for the benefit of American capital and labor. He has abolished the shameful system of peonage of this country. He has submitted the income tax amendment to the constitution to the state legislatures for ratification. He has effected advanced boiler in- spection laws passed by congress. He has established means for com- plete irrigation projects in the west. • He has maintained and e:tended the open door policy in China. He has maintained peace in Cuba and Official Primaries Tuesday, Sept, I0 The Campaign for Nominations Ends Early Next Week The republicans, democrats and so- cialists will hold their official primary elections for candidates on Tuesday next, September 10. The bull mousers have arranged to pull off their little private seance on Saturday, the 7th, but it is expected that many of the herd will take part in the republican primary on the 10th. Of course that would be politics--the hottest brand of the article--to get into the opponent's camp and try and nominate weak men --but it would hardly be in keeping with the cry of honesty and fair deal- ing that is supposed to dominate the supporters of Theodore Roosevelt. The bull mousers have a right to par- ticipate in the official primaries to the extent of asking for a judicial ballot and, after exercising their right of suf- frage in their own primary on the 7th, they will be negligent if they don't al- so go to the official primarics on Tues- day and take a h-tnd in helping name the candidates on the non-partizan ju- diciary ticket. According to Robert McMurchie, who spoke here a week ago Saturday, more than 30,000 democrats participat- ed in the republican primaries two! years ago in this state for the purpose! of nominating Judge Poindexter for senator. This year the democrats will probably honestly stick in their own stall and it is to be hoped the bull mousers will be as honest. It is very evident that the primary law is a fine thing ethically, but in active practice it breeds and encourages dishonest vot- ing. For candidate for governor on the republican ticket there is httle question but that M. E. Hay will win and for lieutenant governor, Snohomish county has a candidate, in the person of W. C. IlcMasters, of Marysvitle, whom we should all vote for. He is a well known lumber manufacturer. Judge Black will, of course, get the major portion of the democratic votes but W. H.

Schoo I Commenced and Going, Nicely Teachers and Pupils Refreshed After Long Summer Vacation School started Tuesday morning and pupils and teachers are now getting down to work properly for the long school year. The attendance at the high school will be in the neighborhood of 100 while the opening attendance at the grade schools is about equal to last year. Prof. Waldron is in charge at the grade schools and will have as as- sistant in the eighth grade, Miss Pad- dock, who will also teach some of the classes in the lower grades where the rooms are overcrowded. Mr. Waldron plans to give the girls and boys in the eighth grade a half day's work in do- mestic science and manual training at the high school if it can belarranged. Work at the high school promises much this year. An athletic associa- tion has already been formed and the boys will have football and basketball and gym training all through the year. A debating society is also under foot and coming orators may be looked for among the various classes. An ad- ditional teacher may be added to prop- erly handle the work. Mrs. Francis Passed Away Tuesday morning ocurr :d the death of Mrs. Elizabeth M. wife of John Francis, at the age of 66, after a long illness of several months during which time she has been completed bedridden and under constant medical attention. The funeral took place Thursday after- noon from the late residence, Rev. J. McKean officiating, interment at Odd Fellows' cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. John Francis were English, being married in the old coun- try before coming to America and set- tling at Niles, Ohio, where they lived for several years before moving to the west in 1885 and making their home in Snohomish where they lived until three years' ago when they came to Monroe. The husban and four daughters and five sons survive. The children are Mrs. William Allen, Mrs. Fred Frohn- ing, Mrs. John A. Vanasdlen and Miss Nellne, who was absent in Spokane when death came, and John. William, James, Frank and Harry. Three chil- drep are dead. The deceased, during her long resi- dence in Snohomish county, had gained the respect and good will of a very large circle of people who have sym- pathized greatly with her in her long illness and severely mourn her loss. The funeral qeremonies were partici- pated in by many acquaintances and members of the Odd Fellows anJ Re- bekkah lodges. of the interstate commerce comission.

For secretary of state, I. M. Howell, is entitled to re-election. Receipts in his office for three years ending March 31, were ,$674,163.30, as compared to $490,457.50 for the three preceding years. During the same periods, office expense was increased only from $38,- 008.00 for the years 1907-8-9 to $42,- 520.00 for the years 1910-11-12 while Mr. Howell has been in office. For Commissioner of public lands we have H. P. Niles, of Everett, as a can- didate but C. V. Savidge, of Olympia, would seem to be in the lead. For insurance commissioner Sen. Fishback, of Adna, is contesting the claims of J. H. Schively and will most likely be the nominee. Discussion of Sehively's records has not put him in a very favorable light before the people. For county candidates the people have already pretty well made up their minds. For county clerk on the repub- lican ticket, W. F. Martin has the field to himself. For sheriff J. H. Smith is also alone. He has proven himself a good deputy and has practically had full charge of the book keeping in the office for the past two years. He re- cently told the editor of this paper that he had nothing to do with fastening the charge of murder on Charles Kirk be- yond serving the warrant issued after the verdict of the coroner's jury was returned. There is little question but that O. T. Webb will get the nomina- tion for county,,auditor. P.T. Lee is entitled to the nomination for auditor" hard fight for the place. A.B. Cutter has the nomination for engineer to him self. Few, if any, medicines have met with the uniform success that has at- tended the use of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. The remarkable cures of colic and diarrhoea which it has affected in almost every neighborhood have given it a wide rep- utation. For Sale by W. E. Mansfield,
