IN OLYMPIAN FAVOR
Capital Removal Bill May Be
COMMITTEE WILL SO REPORT
General Belief I That Tacoma and
Everett Have Given Up Effort to
Get Such a Meannre Through.
OLiYMPIA, "Wash., Feb. 26. The consti
tutional revision committee of the House
at a meeting tonight decided to recom
mend the Indefinite postponement of the
bills Introduced by Tacoma and Everett
providing for submitting to the voters of
the state at the next general election the
question of the removal of the capitol
from Olympia. Easterday and Gorham.
of the committee, reserved the right to
make a minority report recommending
the passage of the bill, although it is re
ported that -this will not be done. The
general belief here is that Tacoma and
Eerett have given up all hopes of put
ting through a removal bill at this ses
sion. The Ruth bill, providing for the
purchase of the Courthouse for capitol
purposes, -which has already passed the
Senate, is now in the hands of the House
committee, and may be passed this "week.
There seems eery reason to believe that
the bill will go through and become a law.
FOR DIRECT PRIMARIES.
House Vote Yesterday Mnlces It
Probable Bill Will Pass.
OLTMPIA, Wash., Feb. 26 The direct
primary bill introduced In the House by
Jones of King came up for second read
ing today with a majority report In favor
of its passage, and a minority for in
definite postponement. A vote on an
amendment introduced by Falrchlld would
indicate that the bill has many warm
friends In the Hous,e, and the Indications
are that It will pass that branch of the
Legislature by a close vote.
A number of amendments were reported
back by the committee having the bill
in charge, and when the bill came up for
second reading Jones explained their
meaning for the benefit of the members..
The report of the majority was then
adopted and the reading of the bill and
the amendments proceeded with,
Falrchlld, a member of the committee
who Is opposed to the measure, offered
an objection to section 5 providing for
the filing of nomination papers or peti
tions by 5 per cent of the party vote.
He further opposed an amendment of
fered by the committee to the effect thai
it be fixed at 2 per cent, the electors
signing to be from a certain number of
precincts or counties as provided in the
Wisconsin act. Falrchlld, In support of
his opposition to this part of the bill,
pointed out that, had it been In effect
at the last election, many members of the
present House would not be in their seats
at the present time. He charged that
such a provision would drive men to seek
ing the office. Instead of allowing the of
fice to seek the man.
Jones made an able defense to these
charges, pointing out that the changes
were In the Interest -of a better choice,
in favor of the candidate from the rural
district, and enabled the people to make
a direct choice from the standpoint of
merit from among the candidates before
Jones held that the amendment of
fered by the committee in no way
worked a hardship7,on the worthy and
popular candidate, but on the other hand
strengthened his chances. The amendment
was finally adopted by a strong vote.
After the noon Intermission the re
mainder of the "bill, together with the
committee's amendments, were read and
adopted. Falrchlld, the leading opponent
of the measure, offered an amendment to
the effect that the bill should apply to
counties containing cities of the first
class, which would make It applicable
only to King, Pierce and Spokane. This
was the first real move to defeat the
bill, and members of the House were
divided on it. Such men as Brown of
Whatcom, himself a county representa
tive, opposed the amendment, arguing
that he considered the measure a good
one for the state In general. Bishop fa
vored trying it on King, Spokane and
Pierce. It was Fairchild's Idea that It
would be better to apply the law In
counties where It is charged the most
corruption exists In connection with po
litical conventions, etc The amendment
was finally voted flown and the bill was
sent to the engrossing committee. The
vote on the amendment was not a test
vote by any means, but the prevailing
belief is that the bill will pass the House
by a slight majority, and that it will
have a hard fight for Its life in the
House "Vote on Bill to Make Three
Cents Passenger Rate So Indicates.
OL.YMPIA, Feb. 26. The House by a
vote of 52 to 26 went on record this af
ternoon against the indefinite postpone
ment of a bill Introduced by Puckett of
Spokane amended so as to read that no
railroad of more than 50 'miles in length
in the State of Washington should charge
more than 3 cents per mile passenger
fare. The bill Is aimed at the Spokane
Falls & Northern Railroad, which today
charges 5 cents per mile. It is contended
that the road, which is one of, if not
the most prosperous in the country, should
be brought under the 3-cent rate.
When the bill was introduced and re
ferred to the railroad committee the lat
ter decided to recommend Its Indefinite
postponement. Later, however, at the re
quest of several Senators from Eastern
Washington, the bill was reconsidered
and a majority of the committee later
reported the bill back with the recom
mendation that It be passed after amend
ed In several particulars. Raymer and
Cameron, Democrats, grew animated in
a demand for a vote of all the members,
as theyfeared some one would fall to go
on recprd. When the roll was called,
Merrit one of their own members, dis
appeared and remained away until the
vote was announced. If the vote is to be
accepted as an Indication of the line upon
railrpad legislation, It was made plain
that the House is decidedly anti-railroad.
The bill to constitute the State Auditor
an ex-ofllcio railroad commissioner for
the next two years was introduced in the
Senate today by the committee on rail
roads and ordered printed.
The Chances Are Thnt There "Will Be
None This Session.
OLMPIA, Feb. 26. The chances are that
there willbe no banking legislation this
session of the Legislature. The bill pre
pared by the State Bankers' Association
which creates the office of State Bank
Examiner, has been considered by the
House committee on banks and banking.
The bill Is unsatisfactory to the small
banks of the state which are protesting
against its passage. It is stated that
even the state association Is willing to
have the bill go over unless it can be
so amended as to do away with the ob
jections of small banks. Final actio:,
on the bill has gone over for a week.
Committee Eienly Divided.
OLYMPIA. Teb. 26. The committee' of
the House, having under consideration the
bill to give Seattle a boulevard along
Lake Washington is evenly divided and
will hold another meeting tomorrow in
the hope of coming to some agreement.
If the bill Is amended in several particu
lars. It may receive the favorable con
sideration of a majority of the committee.

When the legislative reapportionment
bill came back from the enrolling com
mittee. President pro tem. Megler, who
was In the chair, gave notice that he
was about to sign It. Senator Tolman,
on behalf or the Democrats, moved that

his decision. He was sustained.

ber of bills were passed. The memorials

SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 24. (To the Ed

tariff against American manufactures -us
an offset to the countervailing duty im
posed upon Its sugar by Secretary Gage,
whether retaliatory or not, Russia has not

In order to shut out a little sugar, the
volume of which was. Jnsufilcient to meet
the dally whisky toddy demands of Kan

market for other American manufacturers
worth millions of dollars a year, and of
fered offense, so far as offense could be
offer ed, through a stupid interpretation of
law to a nation which has steadfastly
subserved the interests of this one. In all
the annals of national history there is no
' parallel in point of disinterested friend
' ship for that displayed by Russia toward
1 the United States.
Without the common sympathies of a
common tongue, or the common impulses
of a kindred government, and with no po
litical, mllitary.'geographlcal or economic
purpose to subserve, Russia has been the
constant friend of the United States, and
that, too, In the face of what has often
been Intended for national Insult. There
has never been a foreign government rep
resented at the National capital against
which so much has been said as Russia,
and yet there never was one that deserved
so little of censure and so much of praise.
From the day that Alexander II liberated
30.000,000 serfs at home, in the face of a
capitalistic protest, and then placed his
naval fleet at the disposal of Lincoln, in
order that 4,000,000 more might be liberated
in the United States, down to the recent
evacuation of Pekin, Russia has been the
subject of misrepresentation. The press,
the rostrum, the stage, and even the pul
pit, have been frequently employed to
build up a prejudice against the Musco
In the opinion of those who believe that
the defeat of George III was a National
calamity, and that the South African
War is a high-minded crusade of civiliza
tion, Russia Is a menace to all mankind.
According to these people, ts interven

of civilization from ruthless destruction
at the hands of the Turk, was an "out

"delusion," and its military evacuatlon'of
Pekin, a "trick." But, fortunately, the
American people do not. as a whole, ac
cept this estimate of Russian character.
It has another side to it.
It is. true that the Russian Government
arbitrarily took the liquor traffic out of
the hands of Individuals to prevent na
tional debauchery, and thereby Incurred
the displeasure of the vultures who had
been .feasting upon Its people, built rail
roads at a cost of $300,000,000 to prevent

case in the United States, but the wisdom
of 'its course in so doing Is shown by the
fact that It has passed from the last to
the first place among the great family of
nations In less than 60 years.
This Is not chance. Russia has risen,
not by the power of superior Intellect, or
superior advantages, but by the steadfast
emolovment of the maxim laid down Hw
Fetfer the Great, nearly 300 years ago, that
"nq nation can be greater than a major
Ity or its people." ine application of that
principle Is everywhere manifest In Rus
sia. The lowliest Cossack In the outskirts
of Its vast empire is not forgotten in the
regal splendor of the roval oalac 'n in
dividual has a license to prey upon him.
And that Is why he remains loyal to the
During a recent visit to the office of
Baron Schlippenbach, the Russian Con
sul J of Chicago, I met a Cossack, who
came In and announced himselfvas a de
serter from the Russian Army.' "Do you
not know- the penalty of your act?" asked
the Consul. "Yes," he replied. "I do,
but I am a Russian soldier, and now
that the nation is In trouble, I want to
serve it, even though that Service Is pre
ceded by imprisonment." "That Is the
sQlrlt of 20,000.000 men in Russia: They
are! all volunfeeV soldier! This spirit of
I loyalty Is not the result of a demand
on the part of the Government, but the
result of development.
But in displaying loyalty to Us sub
jects. Russia has lost no honorable op
portunity to promote a friendly feeling
vlth the other nations of the world. Thia
is particularly true of the United States.
In order to show Its endeavor to pro
mote and subserve American trade Inter
ests. I might say without divulging a
confidence, that a loan of $24,000,000 was
recently obtained from the New York Se
curity & Trust Company, the proceeds
of which are used to purchase railway
and other Government supplies in the
markets of the United States. The money
Is subject to the check of Mde. Rout
kowsky. the Russian financial agent at
Washington, who Is dally shipping mate
rial to the Trans-Siberian Railway, from
Baltimore, New York, Chicago, San Fran
cisco and other trade centers of this
country. This money, and this material,
could all have been obtained In the com
mercial centers of Europe If desired, but
the preference" was given to America
even at an advanced cost. Another proof
of friendship" for the American Interests
is found In the order recently made by
Mde. Wltte. the Russian Minister of Fi
nance, providing that all exchange of
the Russo-Chinese Bank of Port Arthur,
which means the business of the Orient,
be drawn on New York Instead of Lon
don. In view of the early completion of
the Trans-Siberian Railroad, which fur
nishes a new Inlet to the European world,
it is unnecessary to dwell upon the sig
nificance of this change.
An equally valuable piece of friend
ship is found in the building of a branch
line of the Trans-Siberian system, some
600 miles In length, from Perm to Kotlas,
on the River Drive, in order to take the
wheat of that part of Siberia to Norway
and Sweden, by way of the White Sea.
and thus prevent its competition with the
Pacific Coast product In the markets of
the Orient. It is true that the primary
object of the Russian Government in thuj
preventing competition, was the better

in any way lessen it3 value to Amer

Routkowsky, the financial agent of Rus

safe In saying that they do not mistake
the ruling of Secretary Gage for that

not intend In their official capacities to
recommend or pursue any retaliatory
course, but at the same time I can see
much harm that would follow such a
step, If they should, and especially to
the Pacific Coast.

Bathe the affected parts with Hot Water and Cuticura Soap (25c), to
cleanse the surface of crusts and scales and soften the thickened

This sweet and wholesome treatment affords Instant relief, peiv

frightful scaling, as In psoriasis; the loss of hair and crusting of the
scalp, as In scald head; the facial disfigurement, as in pimples and

out parents, as in milk crust, tetter, and salt rheum all demand a
remedy of almost superhuman virtues to successfully cope with
them. That Cuticura remedies are such stands proven beyond all
doubt No statement Is made regarding them that is not justified by
the strongest evidence. The purity and sweetness, the power to af

the absolute safety and great economy, have made them the standard
skin cures and humor remedies of the civilized world.

to recall the fact that Russia In all Us
varied history has never vet taken a
step backward. From the day that it
met the combined forces of England,
