Page Two L THE MONROE MONITOR m Monroe, Washington Friday, October 3, 1924 ii ;'/ THE MONROE MONITOR Consolidated with MONROE INDEPENDENT By J. J. REARDON & SON PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Itered as second-class matter at the postoffice at Monroe, Washing- ton, under the act of March 3, 1897. No. 648 BUSTING THE MACHINE A Tenino woman with little or no iexperience in matters political' laid low the sturdy Carlyon in the late primaries, by defeating him for the .nomination on the republican ticket by two votes. Senator Carlyon is an institution around the legislature which will be missed. The senator probably figured that his years of service in behalf of Olympia apd Thurston county, his wide acquaint- anceship, his record for constructive achievement, his ability for state- wide knowledge of legislative mat. ters, would make it unnecessary for him to make an intensive campaign. But he forgot our beautiful primary law, and failed to realize that all oi the good things a man does are very apt to be forgotten when it comes to a primary campaign. We say these things without in any way belittling the successful candidate who defeat- ed him, because we know nothing concerning her. But we do say it is a shame that a man of Carlyoa's ability and the long record for con- structive legislation to his credit, is shelved in a political' fight where no denial could be made of his good record. It is a political disgrace for the voters of Olympia. " Senator Carlyon has saved the city from oblivion several times, and has ever had the best interests of his city and county at heart His energy for them has brought permanent results. The Olympia voters who either com- placently allowed the senator to be slaughtered, or helped by their votes to do it, showed very small political judgment, and downright lack of ap- preciation. Score another victory for the direct primary in its war on lead- ership.Chehalis Bee-Nugget SO-CALLED "DEFENSE DAY" The so-called national "Defense Day" was largely a fizzle In spite of the war propaganda, the press bunk and the Asociated Press ef- fort, the result was the marching of processions, large and small and no processions, the playing of military airs, and eagle flapping. No good came out of it. The militarists wanted to find out what man-power we have and let the world know what it i. All' this was known long before "Defense Day." The dear things wanted to show the world how high plumes we wear on our hats and the world knew all about our braggartism. They wanted to teach the world What warriors we are so that they would not want to cross our path. We guess that the soldier boys did that very well' in 1918, without the present puny per- formance. They wanted to make a patriotic demonstration to th world. There is more patriotism to the square inch on Decoration day than there is to the square mile on so- called "Defense Day." Secretary Weeks is delighted that we demon- strated anew that we could rally an army of ten minion men. General Pershing is elated to inject into the anatomy of the dear people sane dis- ease germs of war. All the little flappidoodles are deeply pleased What a set of nuts! Has anybbdy been able to tell what "Defense Day" was for? All the reasons put out for it have been so much twaddhe. They are childish. It looks like some two-by-twice guys somewhere had gotten into their noodles to try out their power on the people. This "Defense Day" command appears to be an effort to exercise authority and watch the people "Punch and Judy." It will all die out within a few years The people are going to stop moving in tribal and herd formation ere long. The people are going to be able some of these times to separate propaganda from truth. There is not in fact, so far as we have of>- served, a single argument favorable to this calithumpian display of mili- tarism. There is every argument against it. Even from the militarist standpoint this performance is ridicu, lous. If we want to really mobilize our people and prepare for war, then do it in an efficient manner. Japan caught the rediculousness of this mock assemblage of war in this country. On the same day that we  were preening our feathers and ruf- fling our necks for war, Japan was dedicating the day to peace and good will and the turning of swords and bayonets into plowshares. Still, we call ourselves civilized and think that we are Christians. We act like heathens. We are heathens.--Iowa Falls (Iowa) Citizen. INTREPID AIRMEN American skill and daring has triumphed over all other nations in rounding the globe in midair. Five or six such flights have been hither- to attempted but failure marked them all and it remained for the government of the United States of America to solve this momentous, task and in that way be the trail- blazers of the new method of trans- portation around the great circle of the earth. In the matter of speed not much was accomplished, it was more a test of endurance, a trim at dar- ing possibilities, rather than speed and this much at least has been as- sured that it can be done. Accord- ing to reports it took them 5 months and 22 days to girdle the earth when land and sea traveling did the same in 40 days a long time ago. The ac- tual time however in flight was 371 hours, 11 minutes. Seventy-six separate flights were made, the av-I erage mileage per flight was 483, the longest flight was 900 miles and the average speed per hour while in the air 76.36 miles. Gasoline con- sumed 22,260 gallons, oil, 1026; miles traveled, 27,534, and 25 foreign was on and still stands high man as between the other two gentlemen in that event. Thig is quite a testimon- ial to the doctor's standing in tho district as well as to his campaign manager. Ladie and gentlemen--don't be one bit alarmed as to whether Cool- idge, Davis or La Follette will be president; any one of them would be a safe bet insofar as the safety of our country is concerned; rest as- sured of that. To think that Cool- idge or Davis would turn the coun- try over to the plutes is preposter- ous, but not any more so than to even insinuate that La Follette would fa- vor a socialist regime or soviet in America. The best way to treat such cases is to tell' them to vote for whom they please but to be sure and see a doctor at once. Monroe is to be congratulated on the institution of a local' jurisdiction of the L. O. O. M., and with more than 100 members strong in the charter organization. The record of this fraternal organization during the past 36 years is its best guarar- tee of what it will do for its mem bers. It is young in years but strong , in membership for a youngster, having 700,000 in the United States. "Hill, democratic candidate for TRACING OF FRONTIER ALASKA I successfully climbed.

The dangers and hardships of the expedition as well a the thrilling and humerous incidents which the party encountered are portrayed graphically in an illustrated lecture to be presented at the Mbnroe theatre, Oct. 8, by Asa C. Baldwin, who was leader of the Mount St Elias party, and assisted in coering the entire line. The still and motion pictures used by Mr. Baldwin show impressively the land of the "last frontier" and depict most clearly the character and conditions of the Alaskan coun- try where the work was done.
