ADVERTISING RATES ON APPLICATION For Representative 1 hereby announce that I am a candi- date for the republican nomination for representative in the 49th district. H. D. MATTHEWS. An Indecent Suggestion After all, the bull moosers are poli- ticians. They have adopted on every possibl occasion every political trick that their brains could invent and are continuing to do so--to do anything and everything possible to get an advantage over the republican party which they have deserted. And mingling with pol- iticans in this campaign seems to breed unfair politmal thoughts and methods in the minds of men who have known bet- ter in the past. Read the following from the Leaven- worth Echo published by Deed H. Ma- er, one of the heretofore stalwarts in the newspaper business in this state who has been among the pronounced I Roosevelt adherents: ! TO INSURE STANDPAT TICKET ' "Have you heard the latest scheme l in the political arena?" asked a local I politican of the Wenatehee World yes-! terday. "It is for the various parties to have workers at the primaries to pre- vent members of other parties voting Who was it that gave presidential ap- proval to the absorption and squeeze- out of the Tennessee Coal & Iron Com- pany by the steel trust? Did the big financiers that pulled off this deal, with the help of the man who was then pres-! dent of the United States, "use" or "influence" anybody? There may be room for difference of opinion, but it looks like a mighty strong case of "use" or "influence." Taking a charitable view of the mat-i • . . J ter, the Taft admmmtration, in the smt against the steel trust, alleged that the consent given to the steel trust's gob-i bling up of the Tennessee Coal & Iron ! Company was due to misrepresenta- tion. It was alleged that the man who was then president of the United States had been imposed on. And who was president when the suit against the harvester trust was post- poned? Senator La Foilette has shown that when the colonel became president there were comparatively few trusts, but by the end of his service they had in- creased enormously. Yet the coionelhas audacity to say the newspapers are against him because not one trust was able to use or influence him. PAID ADVEI.qTISEMENT Paid for by L. McCorkindale An Unsolicited Editorial of the Everett Labor Journal. JUDGE LOUTTIT FOR THE BENCH The Journal takes a real pleasUre in writing about one of Everett's candi- dates for the superiar bench, Hen. Gee. W. Louttit, From long personal con- tact with him and an observation of his work beth as an attorney and a private citizen in behalf of the plain people the writer is convinced that no mistake would be made in elevating him to the berth. The people need men of his stamp in judicial positions. Mr. Louttit was educated in the pub- lic schools of Indiana and the Univer- sity of Michigan. He has practmed law for the past twenty-four years and is admitted to practice in state and feder- eral courts of Washington, Indiana and Michigan and in the United States cir- cuit court of appeals of Chicago. For two terms he was a member of the Indiana state legislature and fought i for every measure introduced in behalf of the plain people. Since coming to Everett a large part of his time has been taken up with work for municipal projects, work for which he could have no hope of compen- sation save the satisfaction that comes to a man who has done all he could to promote civic decency. During the great street car strike it was Judge Louttit's counsel and cool beadedness that helped to avert possible disorder and rioting and made it possible for the strikers to hold the support of the public, which won the day. None knew this fact better than those who were actively aiding the strikers to win a victory unmarred by scenes of disorder such as so frequently mark a street railway strike. Mr. Louttit has been a consistent ad- vocate of municipal ownership of public PAID ADVERTISEMENTS FOR CONGRESS I hereby announce my candidacy for re-nomination and election on the re- publican ticket for the office of repre- sentative in congress from the first dis- trict of the State of Washington• WM.

SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE I hereby announce my candidacy for the office of Judge of the Superior Court of Snohomish County, on the Non-Partizan Judiciary ticket, at the primary election to be held on the 10th day of September, 1912. GUY C. ALSTON. I hereby announce myself as a candi- date for the office of Judge of the Su- perior Court of Snohomish County. BENJ. W. SHERWOOD, Everett, Wash. I hereby announce that I am a candi- date to succeed myself in the office of Superior Judge for Snohomish county and that my name will appear on the non-partisan ticket to be voted upon for that position at the primary election to be held September 10, 1912. W. P. BELL. I hereby announce myself as a candi- date for the office of judge of the su- perior court of Snohomish county, on the non-partizan judiciary ticket, at the primary election to be held September 10, 1912. J.Y. KENNEDY COUNTY ENGINEER I hereby announce my candidacy for the office of county engineer on the re- publican ticket subject to the will of the voters at the primary. A. B. CUTTER. The undersigned announces his candi- dacy for the nomination for county en- gineer subject to the will of the voters at the progressive primary, September 7, 1912. HANS MUMM. COMMISSIONER, THIRD DISTRICT I hereby announce my candidacy for nomination, on the republican ticket, for the office of county commissioner in the third district of Snohomish county. T. N. BENNETT. I hereby announce that I am a candi- date for nomination and re-election as commissioner for the Third district, in Snohomish county in the republican their tickets. "The plan originated with the old line republicans who propose to challenge every progressive and will object to him expressing his choice as to any republi- can candidates unless he agrees to vote for Taft. "The effect of the plan to prevent progressives from voting the republican ticket at the primaries will be to force a complete separation of the parties, and is aimed to insure the nomination of none but standpatters for any county or legislative office." ' Now what do you think of that? Take the first paragraph. Isn't the bull moose party another part$? Havn't the members of other parties, including the republican, a right to see that its adherents do not take a part in their primaries? What kind of a political scheme is it to offer an inference that voters may take a hand in the primaries other than their own? Dishonest, eh? In the second paragraph a suggestion is made that its adherents will take part in the republican primary. By what power do they claim to themselves the right to have any voice in the nom- ination of a single candidate on the re- publican ticket or any other ticket other than their own? In the third paragraph it is said that the plan is to force "a complete separ- ationof the parties. " Why not? Have the voters who remain in the republi- can party and now controll it any de- sire to be ruled or bossed by those who have deserted it? What have the bull moosers got to do with the republican party anyway? They quitted it volun- tarily-or rather the men among them who wanted office did--and what have those men got to say about who shall or shall not be candidates of the party for offices they themselves are, in the main, seeking? Talk about honesty and fair dealing! And to excuse themselves, they claim that every candidate on the republican ticket is a standpatter! Wow! And the state of Washington is recognized as having many of the most progressive laws of any state in the union--all passed by this same old "standpat" re- publican party. As to ';Me" "They are against me because not i one trust, not one individual, was able to use or influence me while I was pres- idenL" Who do you guess uttered the fore- going? The speaker was talking about the newspapers that are opposed to him. The assertion contains a estimate of his own virtues. Now can you guess who the speaker was. If you are still in doubt, note the "me." We have a "me" candidate for president this year. In one sentence there are two "me's," but it is the self-same "me" in both instances. It always is the self-same "me." All others are negligible when it comes to achieving anything or standing for any public virtues. Let us consider the assertion of "me." Frank Munsey, one of the colonel's principal backers, is interested in the steel trust. Munsey's newspaper is for the colonel good and strong. The Mc- Cormicks, who are interested in the har- vester trust, have a newspaper and it is for the colonel. When the colonel casts aspersions on the newspapers that are opposed to him, will his devotees not admit the fairness of the question as to why men interested in the steel utilities and his work in the Ward Club movement was constantly directed along those lines. He was a member of the city charter commission and worked suc- cessfully for the provisions incorporated in the charter at the request of organ- ized labor. He has never accepted a retainer from a corporation nor never wrung an ex- tortionate fee for services from the i pockets of a poor client. Snohomish county voters will choose wisely if they nominate Judge Louttit ! and harvester trusts and owning news- on the non-partisan ticket the 10th of papers are for him?--Tacoma Ledger. next month.

(Lmms No. e) The Everett Tribune has a merry combination on its hands in supporting the liquor traffic in Everett at the same time it is boosting bull moose politics, No one but a Theodore Roosevelt could handle two such varying propositions at once. Many an honest republican voter this year will probably vote for Roosevelt or Wilson while supporting the state and county candidates all the way down the rest of the ticket. The paving is well under way now and it is up to the Commercial Club to plan the proper kind of a celebration to mark its completion.
