Judge Hopewell has served two
terms as lieutenant governor and has
proved himself a man to be trusted.
As presiding offiVer of the senate the
lieutenant governor can wield a tre
menduous influence and Judge Hope-

pon the side of the people.

WILL GET THE BLAME.
No one will deprecate the awful
tragedy at Los Angeles more than
the trades unionists of the country
yet tr.ides unionism will be blamed
for the horrible deed. We may now
expect union haters to rush to the front
and point out "one more awful murder
by uniou men."
It ia all useless to ask. men to with
hold judgment until the facts are 'made
known. They will jump at conclu
sions. The verdict is already made up
the tradfs unions are guilty in the
eyes of those who are either ignorant
of the true meaning of trades unionism
or actuated by selfish motives to op
pose unionism. Those who know what
trades unionism means know fall well
that the Los Angeles tragedy is not
the fruits of trades union teaching.

subject of anti-unionism. There is no
other explanation of his actions. In
all his fight against unionism he has
been aided and abetted by selfish men
who seek to profit by exploiting labor,
and by politicians who sought place
and power. As a result Los Angeles
has been in turmoil for months. Ts it

The finding of "bombs" at Otis
residence or rather, the report of find

after the Times building was wrecked
casts more suspicion upon the police
and the Otis crowd than it does upon
organized labor. Due allowance, too
must bo made for the zeal of reporters
anxious for "copy."
Organized labor should, and will
at and out and not only denounce vio
lence of -ll kinds, but it should lend
every effort to solving the mystery of
the Los Angeles explosion.- It should
make manifest its opposition to meth
ods of violence. It should ferret out
the conspirators, it such there be, and
make an example of them.
Organized has nothing to fear from
the fullest and freest investigation. It
methods are as open as the light of day,
It admits that it makes mistakes. But
it points with pride to the fact that

Honestly, brethren and friends, we
do not believe that if county option
is defeated that state house visitors
will slosh around in whiskey to their
knees; neither do we believe that if
ounty option prevails that business
will be ruined or that the millenium
will be ushered in. We are too busy
making a living to grow excited about
this so-called issue.

THE CZAR'S LEAVINGS.
A Doubtful Honor That Was Rejected
by a Polish Girl.
In Russia royalty is so revered thai
to the loyal subject it seems a great
honor to follow the cznr. The govern
ment is eminently patriarchal in the
ory, at least and the emperor must
supervise as well as patronize the
schools. At the Easter festival the pu
pils are1 treated with especial favor.
Young girls of the upper classes of the
Imperial Girls' school are driven in a
long procession through the streets in
the imperial carriages. The pleasure
for them is only that of being, allowed
to take a drive in a stylish court car
riage, with coachman and footman in
the imperial livery. There is nothing
special to be seen.
The theory of this is that the czar
stands in a sort of higher parental re
lation to all these children. When he
once a year visits one of these schools
to which only the children of the
nobility are admitted it is a custom
that as a sijjn of bis favor be drops
his pocket handkerchief, nnd the girls
all scramble for it. tearing it in pieces,
so that each one i-aii j;et a fragment.
He takes the 'most brilliant "jrirl to
the table and tastes of the food of the
institution' It is valued as the highest
distinction when be gives one of the
girls his plate with what is left upon
It. It is the custom and usage for her
to eat it with delight shown in all her
features. !reat was the astonishment
of Alexander II. when a young girl, a
Pole, whom the czar had taken to the
table as being the most distinguished
scholar of the iustitute aud to whom
he had passed what was left of his
meat and potatoes, nodded to a servant
aud calmly gave him the czar's plate
to take away.
An Unfair Attack.
Piefro was working with a gang at
railroad construction. He had been
told to beware of rattlesnakes, but as
sured that they would always give the
warning rattle before striking.
One hot day he was eating his noon
luncheon on a pine log when he saw a
big rattler colled a few feet in front
of him. lie eyed the serpent and be
gan to lift his legs over the log. He
had barely got them out of the way
when the snake's fangs, hit the bark

Lieutenant Governor Hopewell is
candidate for re election, and he ought
for numerous reisons, be re-elected
by an overwhelming majority. First,
he has proved bis ability, his honesty
nd his fairness us a presiding officer.
Secondly, his democratic opponent,
Ralph Clark, neither by temperament
nor association fitted fo the position.
Judge Hopewell is in sympathy with
the people in their every effort to
prevent the corporations running things;
Mr. Clark is by in?tis:-t a corporation
ist. As the democratic floor leader in
the last legislature Mr. Clark took
good rare of his corporation friends
whenever opportunity afforded.

Forgot Once In Awhile.
The he.-ulli or I lie Iwnl.v as well as :t
the uiim: depends upon forgetting. To
let the memory of a wrong, of angry
words, of petty meanness, linger aud
rankle in your memory will not only
dissipate yonr mental energy, but it
will react upou the body. The secre
tious will be diminished, digestion im
paired, sleep disturbed and the general
health suffer in consequence. Forget
ting is a splendid mental callstuenic
nnd a good medicine for the body.

last Sunday morning, after -a linger

"white plague" laid its hold upon
Mrs. Huckins, and despite the best' ef

she taught school for a time and
achieved success in that profession. She
possessed marked talents -as a' writer
and proved a great help to her husband
in his newspaper business. But above
all else she was a homemaker and
delighted most in the ta&ka of making
her home a resting place for those
she loved and for the many friends
who were always welcome. The funeral
services were held last Tuesday. To
